My first foray into online dating was a boy I call Nemo. We met on Plenty of Fish, get it? Anyway… I change the names to protect the nice people who deign to go out with me.

The picture he refers to is one of my profile pics of me walking down 5th St in Southie. Right in front of his childhood home.

Entitled “Suit & Tie,” the song marks his re-entrance into the entertainment industry and presents an interesting preview into Timberlake’s future in music. The song’s a bump-and-grind type opening lulls listeners into the almost, dare I say it, groovy verse that follows, one which embodies the emotion of a sassy Aretha Franklin.
