Last year, Chicago comedian Tyler Snodgrass got to thinking -- shouldn't Valentine's Day have its own carols? Then he realized it did. Then he spent two weeks sharing his favorite power ballads on Facebook. This project was called "A Fortnight from the Heart," and it's the subject of today's (early!) Blank Cassette episode.
If you guys didn't know, I love hair metal, and this project spoke to my soul. We'd love to see some of you guys come up with your own fortnight! If you want to make your own list or daily posts, just tag me (Eric Garneau), Tyler, and/or the Nerdologues on Facebook so we can bask in the enjoyment!
