Damn! Fixed. Still think it reads the same, though…

I think this song is hot trash if that helps quell your suspicions.

Opinions, we all have ’em!

August 28, 2015 on Justin Bieber’s New Single “What Do You Mean” Is Really Great

It (annoyingly) varies from site to site, but we typically have them in the order you should read them — so from the first tweet sent to the last, to save you any unnecessary scrolling.

Only exception I can think of would be is if someone deleted their tweets and it was an actual screenshot instead of an embed — then it could go either way, depending on who took the screenshot originally.

Easiest way to keep track is to look at the timestamp under each one! :)

Yeah, actually, total oversight. That and “hueboy” are great.

Hmm, I definitely could see how the “childlike” stuff could rub someone the wrong way, though I think the LIZ video is the only one that probably takes it a bit overboard. I don’t really see it through that lens — if anything, that aspect is a result of being very influenced by Japanese culture, where that kind of stuff runs rampant — but if that’s a sticking point for you, I totally get it.

Here are some of my fav deeper/unreleased cuts if you feel like torturing yourself with different sounds. A lot of the stuff on the compilation is in the lower tier of PC Music, IMO:

A. G. Cook – Superstar
Danny L Harle – Untitled
Danny L Harle – Aquarius (Luna Remix)
GFOTY – My Song
Hannah Diamond – Pink And Blue
Sophie x Charli XCX – Let’s Ride
Spinee – Hell Hound

You will prob not like any of this either! That’s OK!

And here is a PC Music remix of CRJ — best of both worlds

Ha, at least you gave it the time! I love pretty much everything PC Music has done — and GFOTY is my favorite — but I totally get why people wouldn’t like it. It’s definitely not for everyone.
