You know who I'm talking about because you all have friends like this: Couples who, despite the fact that they live with each other and share the same bed, feel the compulsion to constantly tell each other how much they love one another via uploaded photos of them kissing each other, or overemotional love proclamations as Facebook status updates for everyone to see.

Temptations are always abound in the world of rock 'n' roll and it's easy to be drawn to them like flies to a pile of shit. In the last few years I have fallen to an addiction -- I've become a coffee drinker. When I told my friends I'd caved they excitedly began schooling me on the world of java.
