For this milestone episode, we put together a love letter to FREESTYLE. All the passion, melodrama, and naiveté of young love: desire, betrayal, horniness, heartbreak, self-doubt, ecstasy. Dry humping, hickies, handjobs. Hairspray, cologne, cheap beer, cigarettes, flavored lip gloss. Humid summer nights driving around with the windows down going nowhere in particular, strutting up and down the boardwalk, makeshift dancefloors in dark, sweaty basements. Girl groups, divas latinas, sensitive guys. Orchestra hits, harsh synths, stuttering fills, pre-Autotune vocals, hooks that demand to be sung along to. Sometimes youth is not wasted on the young.
