I like the 1960 U-2 incident. U-2s are cool.
Obvs the cold war is my favorite war.
Also in the spirit of the end of the world, this article has a list of some close calls: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/World_War_III
My dad met JFK when he was about 7. He showed me a black and white picture of it. Ironic since he's all anti-american now.

Anyway, I'm going through boxes, and I found this CD of all fifteen Shostakovich symphonies that my high school crush (who I was friends with at the time, but then when he found out I liked him, turned into a complete douchebag) gave me once upon a time. And they're all WMA files! Ugh, that bastard was always such a fucking Windows snob. I should have known.
Time to find a converter...
Hi, I'm Rose. I love music, alcohol, pointless Internet debates and being a snob about my choices in entertainment. I write a lot. You can read some of my writing at Autostraddle.com, the best site for LBTQ women on the Internet, where I am a staff writer. Or the funhouse that is my tumblr. I also write music sometimes, and post the better fruits of my labors on my SoundCloud.
