Trivial Only Post - On the Insanity of FSoG

I haven't posted in forever. I'm working on a new post, but it's gotten rather deep, and is taking a while to put together. So I've decided to try something new. In addition to my deeply trivial posts, I occasionally think things that are best described as trivial only. Hence, the trivial only post. These will be short, to the point, likely very snarky (who am I kidding? - that describes all my posts) and on rather ridiculous topics. Let's see how this goes.

The more I learn about the author of Fifty Shades of Grey, the more I think she's actually completely out of her mind, and rather than recognizing and treating her mental illness, we're heralding her for writing such compelling drama. The most recent thing I heard about Fifty Shades of Grey (hereafter referred to as FSoG, pronounced Fih-Sog, if you don't mind) that makes me think that?: Spotify was advertising the FSoG playlist, which contains tracks "inspired by the book everyone is reading."

First, not everyone is reading the book, but whatever. Second, last time I checked, "I'm on Fire" by Bruce Springsteen, The Flower Duet from Lakme, and "Toxic" by Britney Spears were written long before this book. I think someone needs to check their dictionary and make sure they're really clear on the definition of "inspired". Honestly, we should explain how the space-time continuum works, but that might be asking too much.

After all, what can you expect from a book that was "inspired" by Twilight?

Trivially yours,
