This dude has made so much music for whiny college students that he became one.

Apple Music is more or less identical to Spotify and also costs 10 dollars.

First and foremost, I want to begin by wishing Lil Wayne the absolute best during this time of medical trouble. He is in my thoughts and prayers. Many people condemn his current music and scorn his lyrics, but he will definitely be remembered as one of the greats when it is all said and done with. Lil Wayne's music played a very pivotal role in my own personal life and I will always admire his content, personality and entertainment that he consistently provided us with. At the time of this writing, Wayne is reportedly in good and stable condition at the hospital following another seizure. On this subreddit, as well as on comment boards on sites ranging from TMZ to USA Today, I have read a plethora of remarks attacking Wayne's use of lean, which is a combination drug consisting of promethazine (an antihistamine) and codeine (an opiate). Because opiates are incredibly addictive and withdrawals are hellish, obviously, no one would be advised to continue abusing opiates in any condition and I firmly believe Wayne needs to stop using lean. However, there is no sense or logic in blaming it for his seizures. Opiates do NOT cause seizures. There have only been a very limited number of instances in which extremely large doses of opiates (far beyond what someone could reasonably consume before overdosing and having their respiratory system shut down) have triggered seizures, even in people already prone to them due to epilepsy. What is most likely causing these seizures is Xanax, or some other benzodiazepine. Most people are aware that abruptly ceasing use of benzodiazepines after regularly taking them can prompt a seizure. However, unfortunately, most people are unaware that even binging on them for a few days and stopping can also trigger a seizure. This risk is magnified in someone who is already prone to seizures, which, according to his doctors, Weezy is. Lil Wayne's recent work has been littered with nods and references to Xanax, Klonopin and other benzodiazepines. It's apparent that he's using them in large amounts. To make matters worse, this is nothing new. He has evidently been taking them for quite some time. Back in 2008, he even rapped "I am a prisoner, locked up behind Xanax bars." In 2007, when Lil Wayne was arrested for infamously possessing a weapon, he was also found to be in possession of a prescription bottle containing some marijuana and eleven Xanax bars. Further back, in August 2006, he was arrested in an Atlanta hotel after being found with 60 Xanax pills and 59 hydrocodone (Vicodin) pills. Whether or not Wayne's seizures are due to him ceasing his benzodiazepine use abruptly or due to him binging and not taking any for a day or two is anyone's guess. However, it is vital to understand that opiates are not known for prompting seizures and that lean almost certainly has nothing to do with this. This leads me to my next point, that Xanax and other benzodiazepines, which have become increasingly popular in the hip-hop culture, are very serious drugs that can subtly cause extremely serious addiction.

You guys, if we all go to a Steve Aoki concert together, get to the front under the raft then just let it fall, WE COULD KILL STEVE AOKI.

We had these guys in at my work to film a some interviews right after they signed to WB and they were a couple of complete piece of shit lazy divas. I knew they'd never go anywhere from the way they treated people in our office and this only confirms it. Have fun finding real jobs, fuckheads.

Why? Is there a better shorthand in the English language for a kerfuffle like this? Because GuacKerfuffle is a mouthful.

Speaking of things nobody gives a fuck about: a Dave Grohl-directed 8 part documentary following the Foo Fighters as they trace their musical influences across America. Literally cannot think of anything I'd rather watch less.

Beautifully shot video, but come on, a pretty white girl as a housekeeper? At the Cosmopolitan? She would have been made a VIP host when she walked in for the housekeeper interview. I know that you need her to be a maid so she can live in the crappy cinderblock hotel and come across their room, but this is pure fantasy. I WILL give the video points for keeping a good sense of geography and having them actually take a scooter from the Strip to Downtown instead of making it seem like they walked.

Also, IN CASE YOU DON'T, "Like" them on Facebook, Charles updates on the new record and other things pretty frequently and hangs out in the comments and talks to people. BEST BAND IN THE WORLD. A few years ago there was a Wrens documentary in production, did anything ever happen with that?

LOVE LOVE LOVE this album and have always wondered about something: For years there was a version floating around on the internet that sounded extremely "clean", as if they hadn't added the noise stuff yet. The guitar at the start of Everyone Choose Sides was regular, Ex Girl Collection sounded completely different. I love both versions but haven't been able to find an explanation for that 'clean' version of the record. Anybody?

Streamed the album earlier, it's not very good. But it's always good to see how good of a live singer Terius is.

Teenage Love Song is still one of my favorite songs! I haven't listened to the rest of this album in a while, I'll have to revisit it today! I think I was at that Tonic show, really really weird crowd. Unlike any other NY/CMJ crowd I'd ever seen. Hard to explain.
