  1. Hi stereogum, I just read your post about Music and I wanted to let you know that my friend Josh Rimer just made a new song parody about Taylor Swift’s song “We Are Never Getting Back Together”.
    I figured it would probably be of interest to your readers.
    You can see it at
    The ending is hilarious!
