Music: Finals Playlist

It’s the most wonderful time of the year. Just kidding, it’s time to face the consequences of the bad decisions you’ve been making all semester!

New Releases: Ciara, Fall Out Boy, Justin Timberlake, Paramore. Although you might think this is a Mac Weekly article from 2006, it’s 2013 and here we are.
