“Q” is for Queen Latifah

“Q” is a hard letter in the A-to-Z Challenge. I had a fair amount of trouble coming up with a pop-culture reference that meant something to me starting with the letter. But, I settled on Queen Latifah. Generally speaking, I quite enjoy Queen Latifah movies. I find her to be a very entertaining and skilled performer. Her movies also tend

“J” is for Jagged Little Pill

Today’s post for the A-to-Z Challenge is a Canadian entry. Canada has produced a lot of great musicians, but one of my favorites has always been Alanis Morissette. While the world was introduced to her in 1995, I actually remember her from one of her earlier releases in 1991, a song entitled Too Hot from her debut album, Alanis. I have
