There is nothing worse, especially as a young teen, than unrequited love.  This is expressed beautifully by Washed Out (musician Ernest Greene).

Adding to the music is the beautiful and powerful video by director David Altobelli.  Enjoy.

These puzzles will normally take you less than 5 minutes to complete.    Puzzles labeled difficult in the headline will probably take a bit longer.  To start the puzzle, scroll down and move your cursor over the "Loading the puzzle..." box.  The puzzle will then fill itself in.

NOTE: Although I test every puzzle, sometimes pieces do freeze or simply just don't appear.  It has been suggested that if you are having difficulty finding missing pieces try to zoom in or out in your browser (pressing "ctrl" and "+" or "-" does this in most browsers).  Most of the time the missing pieces are hiding at the bottom of the puzzle area - and will become visible after you've zoomed.  Sorry, these are server issues and beyond my control.

Here's a stopwatch if you'd like to time yourself.

Orange is the New Black (Netflix)

It seems I'm always late to the party.  This is certainly the case with Netflix's original series Orange is the New Black, which just launched its Season 2 on 6 June 2014.    If Season 1 is any indication, Season 2 will also be a real watchable winner!

I'm just finishing binge watching Season 1 and I'm looking forward to doing the same for Season 2.  Kudos to Netflix who makes the entire season available for binge watching in one fell swoop.  Definitely a binge watcher's paradise.

Even though the series is set in a woman's prison, it's not all drab and dreary.  This is "dramady" at its best.  Here's the description of the original non-fiction book by Piper Kerman
With a career, a boyfriend, and a loving family, Piper Kerman barely resembles the reckless young woman who delivered a suitcase of drug money ten years before.  But that past has caught up with her.  Convicted and sentenced to fifteen months at the infamous federal correctional facility in Danbury, Connecticut, the well-heeled Smith College alumna is now inmate #11187–424—one of the millions of people who disappear “down the rabbit hole” of the American penal system.  From her first strip search to her final release, Kerman learns to navigate this strange world with its strictly enforced codes of behavior and arbitrary rules.  She meets women from all walks of life, who surprise her with small tokens of generosity, hard words of wisdom, and simple acts of acceptance.  Heartbreaking, hilarious, and at times enraging, Kerman’s story offers a rare look into the lives of women in prison—why it is we lock so many away and what happens to them when they’re there.

I don't want to deliver a spoiler for those who haven't seen Season 1, so here's only the original Season 1 trailer.
