Cheerleaders are the shit, period, which is why you need to channel all of head cheerleader Torrance Shipman’s victory spirit. Cheerleading is her life, literally, and she’ll do anything to win. If you’re gonna be the best, you need to be THE BEST, so bring it ON. Like, you need to be high-kicking and twirling and somersaulting until your back breaks. OK, maybe don’t break your back, ’cause they’re really going to need you for practice, but be prepared to get serious. So get your spirit fingers ready—I SAID READY!!! NOW!!!—and follow Torrance Shipman or perish, sweater monkeys. Here are 10 songs to get into the Bring It On zone.
HEY, ROOKIES! Next month’s theme is LOST AND FOUND. We’re looking for writing, illustration, photography, video, collage, etc., on things we have lost and times we’ve been found; on being independent vs. asking for help; on solitude, pros and cons; shyness and the conquering of same; misanthropy and empathy and love and how they can coexist. On everything that makes us feel less alone in this world. Here is where to send your stuff. Thank you! ♥♥♥
