    I bought this for my daughter for her birthday as she's a huge fan. I got it for a pretty good deal off of eBay. It is used but in great shape. There's all kinds of things in it drawings, lyrics, lett...

    The fact that this book exists:1) makes me never want to trust anyone ever ever EVER again. 2) leaves me with even less faith in love than I had before I flipped through it. (Don't worry. I watched Im...

    Well, as I expected I felt pretty dirty reading these diaries. Not as bad as watching the Montage of Heck garbage though: the hand-writing at least connects you to a form of reality. 'Cause let's not ...
