Apparently I’m really into some of Elizabeth’s recent loud patterns.

But loud doesn’t necessarily mean BAD. Sometimes loud is great. Sports fans are loud. Britney Spears’ music, listened to properly, is loud. KANYE’S CAPS LOCK IS LOUD. There’s a reason Spinal Tap wanted that amp to go up to eleven, and it wasn’t due to self-loathing. I say three cheers for loud, especially because it’s a Friday morning and all I want to do is go back to bed and maybe a little wanton top-volume celebration is exactly what will keep me awake to cocktail hour.
