I’ve not seen the Disney movie Frozen yet. I plan to eventually, since the Snow Queen Elsa from Frozen will be a character in the upcoming season of Once Upon a Time (one of my favorite shows).

blog. I do review academic books! Today, though, I decided to write a
light post about a song. A heavy song.
