You forgot to mention that “Legs Shakin’” is about legs shaking. You know, during sex. Primarily, it seems, of the oral variety.
Doesn’t change the fact that he’s a kid and isn’t the one who posted the letter online, so ripping on his grammar is an absolute dick move.
I’m all for improved grammar, spelling, et al. in society, but based on his school being ‘CGMS’ he’s clearly in middle school. So perhaps his current abilities shouldn’t be ripped on the internet.
The sun rises, the sun sets, Greg Ginn alienates someone.
Exactly. It didn’t even occur to me to think that some of the humor was based on it being two guys. I just found it hilarious to watch two very funny people earnestly recreate a truly awful video.
How long did they fight over who got to be Kim?
Riding a motorcycle with a topless woman on your lap seems unsafe.
“Virtuoso funk vamp” is the perfect description. Definitely the best of his recent one-offs, but add some horns and it would be even better.
Wasn’t Beck working on 2 albums? The Sea Change follow up another one? I thought I remember reading that.
Favorite Beatles song? Yeesh…ummm…”Tomorrow Never Knows”…At the moment at least.
“Every day, I get up and pray to NMPA/And they decrease the number of lyric sites by exactly 50/Everybody’s comin’ for free lunch these days/Last night there were Rap Geniuses on my lawn/Take the Rap Geniuses bowling/Take them bowling!”
Yep, but with the association with her namesake goddess…she might be able to pull it off. At least enough to give the NFL something to think about and maybe force a settlement.
You’re making me very nervous about next Tuesday, Mr. West.
“Whatever you think of Thicke, or of Gaye’s legacy, this is a very dangerous and frivolous lawsuit.”
I understand where you are coming from, but it is way, way, way too early to be making statements like this. It could well turn out to be dangerous and frivolous, but there is absolutely no way of knowing until there is access to the evidence in the case (which there almost certainly won’t be because it will likely be settled long before that).
Siamese Dream is the reason I’m a music fan today. I didn’t have an older sibling and my parents didn’t really listen to music. Somehow I got a copy of Siamese Dream and that opening of “Cherub Rock” came on. It was like a scene in a movie where a character tries drugs for the first time. My eyes dilated and there was nothing else in the world.
For that reason if no other (and there are others) I will always adore Smashing Pumpkins.
You nailed the list too, so that’s a good thing. (Sure I could argue Oceania above Machina and Adore above Pisces, but meh…)
Yikes. Probably “Immortality” although the opening riff to “Glorified G” would be at bat walk up music if I were a baseball player.
Saw Prince in January and he expressly banned bringing smartphones into the venue. Then he had off duty Minneapolis cops at the door to ensure compliance. I had left mine in the car, and after getting over the odd feeling of not being able to check the time on my phone it was a ridiculously liberating experience to be completely unplugged for a couple hours.
Of course standing 10 feet from Prince at the debut performance of his new band probably helped the feeling of liberation.
Well that was…something.
I *think* his point is that the actual music is irrelevant because it has Drake’s name on it, and Drake could release an album of himself belching for a half hour and it would be highly rated. With that being the case, why not just spew nonsense in the review itself to fill the space rather than actually review the music.
“Diamonds on the Soles of Her Shoes”
If so it’s still going. Kanye just took to twitter again. This time to defend himself. He doesn’t do a great job of it, but many of the arguments made in this thread are in there if you look.
I’m totally serious, though.
I have my Yeezus tickets for November.
I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, Kanye West is a national treasure.
