I am just like you and everyone else. I am trying to live my life as best I can.

By Anonym 13 Sep

Liz Phair

By Anonym 14 Sep

By Anonym 13 Sep

Liz Phair

By Anonym 15 Sep

Liz Phair

There's even more stuff that I'd like to release, but I'm scared to, that's really, um, nerdy... not nerdy in a good way. Like, silly.

By Anonym 13 Sep

By Anonym 13 Sep

By Anonym 14 Sep

Liz Phair

So how does Liz Phair feel about Lana Del Rey? Well, as a recording artist, I've been hated, I've been ridiculed, and conversely, hailed as the second coming. All that matters in the end is that I've been heard.

By Anonym 14 Sep

By Anonym 13 Sep

Liz Phair

I mean, I kind of remember... I'm 36 now, so it's kind of hard for me to relate to what it was like when I was 25, or 24, but I do remember a period in time when that's how I defined who I was, by the music I listened to and the movies I went to.
