Favorite Word:

The word I actually chose is mashup. But it's not in the dictionary, and because I am an iconoclast, I smash this visual reference as not up to date. Because it SHOULD be in the dictionary: it entered the lexicon of daily life via the online world + hip hop/modern music's mix-mastering of all things good. The current-edge rolling wave of online is a total mashup. Social Media is a mashup. It's a made-up smashing mash-up of 'borrowed' ideas, visuals, and sounds rendered new.

Least Favorite Word:

It's one of those things that does not trip easily over your tongue, sounds inelegant, and feels like you've mispronounced it when you haven't. And I feel enmity towards it because of that.
