Comments from Michael O'Neill

In all seriousness, Kendrick is not my #1 favorite artist but I don't think I get excited for new music from anyone else as much as I do from K-Dot. This song is pretty good, the lyrics from what I've parsed out so far are excellent - Control-like in terms of him boasting. It does feel a little disparate/stitched-together, but that could be because this was put together really recently (I mean the Ibaka thing he references happened two days ago) and is meant as an announcement more than a lead single.

There's been some notorious grade deflation in Toga Tying 101 so lots of kids are afraid to take it now

I feel like the inclusion of SK makes this comment directed at me, to which I say: Tom Petty is great but Sleater-Kinney are world-conquering

Also, the first few seconds have me loving Angry Lorde but then it mellows out a bit

March 2, 2017 on Lorde – “Green Light” Video
I think it's a pretty jarring style change, but I don't necessarily hate it. I think once I'm able to embrace the idea of Lorde as a capital-P Pop artist I'll probably like it more, but that could take a while.

I know the song is called "Shape of You" but every time I hear it the hook sounds like "I'm in love with your shit body" to me

Clash the Truth is a great record, it's been far too long since we got some new Beach Fossils. This'll come just in time for summer and should be a lovely soundtrack.

March 2, 2017 on Beach Fossils – “This Year”
I really do think, in my opinion, that this is the greatest singer-songwriter album ever made. From start to finish it's delicate, beautiful, and emotional. It represents a quiet sadness that is incredibly hard to capture on tape, and it's the best moment in an incredibly strong discography.

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?"
