Drake seems to think about his persona in the larger monoculture, and picks his pop features to fit in with that. Kendrick doesn't seem to think about that, he's more along the lines of "whatever lets me get paid so I can get back to the greatest rapper alive thing". Or he does care and just has terrible taste. I prefer the former explanation

My favorite minor "oh shit its Ray Wise" role is when he plays one of Red Forman's lackeys in Robocop. Second favorite is the "Wishes" video because that's what I imagine half time at Twin Peaks High looks like.

My girlfriend and I are waiting for the new season to finish so we can get the free showtime trial and binge it in a week. I'm already preparing myself mentally.

Took the campers to the local PBS studio today. Geeked out at all the AV stuff and got a Gucci Mane ice cream cone painted on my face. Good Friday

Peter Thiel, who will ensconce it at the center of his Rapture-esque offshore libertarian paradise, to be played once a year to ring in a new financial year.

That Portugal song is on modern rock radio constantly, which I guess is indicative of something. I have no idea what that means anymore

"STEREOGUM: Have you ever heard of the Chainsmokers? MCDONALD: I’ve heard the name. There’s no real melodic change, it’s just everything underneath comes and goes. The same chord progression." Put this on their fucking tombstones

Yeah but there's a difference between acknowledging their importance, which I don't think anyone is arguing against, and critical reassessment of the music's quality.

I feel like we should be able to express grief for the loss of a musician without feeling the need to immediately canonize their music.

Or maybe, just maybe, no one on staff is into the new songs.

And then we went to McDonald's and David Bowie got me the happy meal and I got a Minion and David Bowie and me played in the play place and then David Bowie took me home and it was the best day with David Bowie ever

Sampha is doing for me and R&B what Pallbearer did for me and metal. Opening me up to worlds I didn't know existed

That phrase came up in the players manual for Doom 2, and my dumbass 8 year old self thought it meant some dude named Nuff had just said something

They show extreme intelligence, even problem-solving intelligence. Especially the big one. We bred eight originally, but when she came in she took over the pride and killed all but two of the others. That one... when she looks at you, you can see she's working things out. That's why we have to feed them like this. She had them all attacking the fences when the feeders came

Look I'm just going to say this, and if it gets downvoted that's totally fair: Passionfruit was a damn chillwave song, and the genre is in need of a critical reappraisal. The Other Site treats it like embarrassing family photos

All I'm saying is that if you turn to page 311 in Tim Weiner's CIA history Legacy of Ashes the first line says "On February 13th, 1967, Richard Helms was in Albuquerque". And who could possibly be playing the Sandia Casino Amphitheater in Albuquerque on August 10th? #311TRUTHNOW
