This week’s Tune for Tuesday, “Golden Forest” from 1080° Snowboarding, is out of gratitude for the snowfall we had earlier today. Makes me want to either go out and make snow angels, play my Nintendo 64, or both at the same time…actually, that might not be a good idea.

This week’s Tune for Tuesday, “Feliz Navidad” by José Feliciano, is one that often gets played on the airwaves around this time of year, and for good reason in my opinion. One can enjoy the holiday season and share that joy with others, no matter where you come from or what you personally celebrate, if anything at all. That’s what I take away from this, at any rate.

This week’s Tune for Tuesday, “Divide” from RWBY, is one I’ve had picked out for a while now, specifically for today. I wish I could pick a more optimistic song, for that’s usually a trait I pride myself on. However, I feel as though that regardless of how things play out today, blood is going to be spilled on US soil. That is something that I’ve been certain of since my nightmare last year, but even so, I pray I end up completely wrong.

However, there’s one cosplay regulation seen frequently at Japanese conventions that some would argue doesn’t make very much sense: no cross-dressing.
