Houston Connections, If Any: Houston has a lot of trains, and we feel like throwing ourselves under one every time we hear that goddamned "Hey Soul Sister" song.

If You Like This, Chances Are You'll Like: Only drinking coffee at midnight, smoking a pack a day (wait, that's me), wearing high heels when you exercise... you're a flake, in other words.
