Taylor Swift Archives – PorchDrinking.com
Alright Alexa, hit us with “…Ready for it?” by Taylor Swift. With Super Bowl 58 almost here (add a day if you’re reading from Tokyo, Japan) there’s only one question left to ask: who’s going to be the X-factor in this San Francisco 49ers vs Kansas City Chiefs showdown? To answer that question, we’re opening beers in addition to playbooks. So crack open a cold one and let’s see which beer styles best match up with the “ones to watch” in this NFL season finale.
With Taylor Swift attending the Kansas City Chiefs game this past Sunday, the dating rumors between her and Travis Kelce are reaching a boiling point. This is a cultural crossover for the ages, thrilling both Swifties and NFL fans alike. Until these rumors are actually confirmed, I’ll be busy setting my fantasy football lineups, streaming Getaway Car (IYKYK) and daydreaming about this perfect duo. And speaking of perfect pairings, here are 6 beers the maybe couple should be sipping on as their love story unfolds.
I’m sitting here drinking a beer and counting down the minutes until my Eras Tour bound flight departs for Minnesota. After canceling her 2020 tour due to the pandemic, the last time Taylor Swift toured publicly was in 2018. So you might say this tour has been a long time coming. Despite being in the game for nearly 20 years, Taylor Swift continues to reinvent herself tapping into new channels of creativity and producing banger after banger. A similar thing can be said about the craft brewery scene in Minnesota. So grab a glass with me and let’s toast to Taylor as we journey through the land of 10,000 lakes.

Back in 2014, Taylor Swift said “We are never ever getting back together” to free music streaming sites like Spotify. As of midnight on June 9, 2017, just three short years later, her musical repertoire was added back to Spotify and T-Swift fans around the world are rejoicing.
‘House of Cards’ Return Announced
You might want to ask for a vacation day on February 27 (it’s a Friday anyway) to be among the first to binge through the third season of ‘House of Cards.’ For some, this means a welcome return to DC with Frank Underwood. For others, this means the return of people being mad at you for not watching a show where everyone sucks and you honestly wouldn’t care if they all died in a fire.
Craig Ferguson Announces Last Guests
The Late Late Show Show with Craig Ferguson first aired on CBS on January 3, 2005. On December 19th of this year, Craig Ferguson will do his last monologue before his mortal self transcends to the heavens and he forms a new star in the constellation, Draco. That last part might not be true, but Mr. Ferguson will definitely not be doing his show anymore. Instead he’ll continue hosting Celebrity Name Game and will be passing the reins of The Late Late Show to James Corden, who will take over in March. This week, we learned who will be the last guests to grace the chairs next to Craig’s desk. The parade of talent paying their respects will include Steve Carrell, Drew Carrey, Carrie Fisher, Jon Hamm, Tim Meadows, Betty White, and for the big finish: Jay Leno. Don’t fall for it Craig! He’s trying to take your show!
Gonna try to keep it quick this week, Pop Culture nerds. Seven highlights from the past seven days. Our PorchDrinking pop culture team is a bit tired, still exhausted from the long-and-kinda-snoozy Emmys. Speaking of which, let’s start this pop culture week in review with a recap of TV’s biggest night.
Last week, we all became aware of the Punch Heard ‘Round the World. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again- some people just need to get punched in …
Sunday night was full of cultural revelations, and I’m not even talking about Jesse Pinkman’s… But as a quick side note: HOLY BREAKING BAD!… No, I am referring to the 2013 MTV Video Music Awards. It was a time to see the latest trends in teddy bear swimwear, just how tall is Bruno Mars and possibly the worst kept secret in world come to fruition. So let’s take a look at last night’s big moments!
So the Grammys happened…remember?
I know Tristan already did a breakdown of the show, but I love the Grammys so you will hear what I have to say. I don’t give a shit about the awards themselves but the performances are usually bananas. I’m still talking about the Mumford/Avett/Dylan performance from two years ago. But this year, no trapeze. No weird eggs. And seriously not enough Beyonce. Ok, so apparently I just want it to be 2011 again. At least then we wouldn’t have to deal with LL Cool J or his silly hats. You’re not hiding anything from anyone- Just be bald. Own it. And I know they weren’t your fault exactly, but you could have chosen not to make a “Grandma/Grammy” or a “Fun. is fun” joke. We are the choices we make, sir.
So I’m sure you are either tired of hearing about the Golden Globes or forgot they happened already.
But bear with me whilst I do a brief recap told mostly in video and picture form. There weren’t any really horrible moments
that didn’t involve Anne Hathaway or Claire Danes, so I’ll just run you through my favorites/first five I could think of.
