She and I are a month or two apart in age which is a constant reminder of how little I've done in life but no

I'd say 70-80% of the emails I get at the radio station from label reps use it the phrase, it's part of the official lexicon/vernacular though I'm not quite sure why

At least he, unlike Trump, won't have to reassure us about his penis size, since it's out there for the world to view in the sex tape he did with Scott Stapp.

"I'm voting for Kid Rock because he represents the common man. Who HASN'T gotten in a fight with Tommy Lee at the VMAs, or been in a fight at a Waffle House, or been in a fight at a strip club?"

I feel like if this is true then stating them publicly can only be a bad thing.

"Do You Still Love Me?" got me very excited for this record - it captures all of the strengths of 80's arena rock without leaning on any of its faults/cliches. I'm only familiar with the self-titled, but I'm looking forward to digging deeper into his discography once I digest Prisoner.

Just rewatched Beyonce's performance, realized that it reminded me a lot of what FKA twigs does (esp. w ribbon like the Glass & Patron video and the Egyptian-esque dress like in Two Weeks)

Technical difficulties mean we're still at Beyonce's performance. Anything important happen between that and Lukas Graham's performance?

Music, like all art, is amazing and beautiful and unifying and worthwhile because it reflects the human experience. The best music comes from artists who speak their truths, who pour their hearts out into every note; a song is always elevated when you can tell that the artist really threw themselves behind it. In that sense, music doesn't always need to be "cutting edge" or "innovative." Was Teens of Denial a huge musical innovation? No. Was it a unique and powerful expression of a variety of emotions and experiences Will Toledo has, perhaps one that has not been quite represented in that way in music before, and one listeners can relate to in a new way? Absolutely. If some sort of new musical sound or idea or technique enables you to best express what you're trying to say, that's wonderful! That's how we get albums like Loveless and Pet Sounds - artists who feel like the current parameters don't accurately reflect their feelings. But just because a writer connects with the same lo-fi reverb-heavy aesthetic that's been around a while in a powerful way doesn't make the music any less potent or valuable.

I think you're underestimating the value of subtlety in delivering a political message. (I know the lyrics arent subtle, but for people who support a candidate whose idea of political discourse is as over-the-top is Trump's, they might as well be.) We've seen how people to react to anything that suggests inclusivity, we have to find another way.

This is both sad and positive news - sad because this step is necessary, positive because he's taking the right steps. Anyone familiar with Is the Is Are will know that it was pretty lyrically centered around drug addiction, but there were promising glimpses throughout. I saw them in both June and November last year, and there was a noticeable improvement in ZCS's mood at the November show, so it seemed like he was doing well. I wish him all the best.
