THE 10 COMMANDMENTS OF STANNING (by stevensaurusrex): 1. Thou shalt honor thy fave with all thy heart. 2. Thou shalt only stan for one fave, and one fave only. 3. Thou shalt not throw shade at another's fave unless shade is thrown at your fave first. 4. Thou shalt not go for someone else's wig unless thy wig is upset first. 5. Thou shalt remember fellow stans if they are banned. 6. Thou shalt not mock Lord Beysus for stealing songs- or Beysus will come for thy fave's songs as well and make them relevant. 7. Thou shalt not say Ciara is irrelevant- or she will cutteth thee open like a surgeon. 8. Thou shalt not say Goddess Britddha is a talentless *****- she will punish thee with the "Mannequin" choreography. 9. Thou shalt not drag the haters tew hard, for fear of bringing a bad name to thy fave. 10. Thou shalt remember- Raven >>>>>>>
Well, if MTV doesn't air music, why should TWC air weather?

"It's like a song. Now, I can hold a note for a long time. - Actually, I can hold a note forever. - But eventually, that's just noise. It's the change we're listening for. The note coming after and the one after that. That's what makes it music."
