They book headliners way in advance. I think in the September ballpark. If you wanna crunch baby math you can figure that she made the announcement after she was a certain amount of time along in her pregnancy. Then figure the twins may not even be born for possibly another month or three after April. Of course, I'm going to continue with yacht's line of thinking that they're being born in April. What I'm saying is it's totally possible she booked Coachella then conceived twins after the fact.

This is what I was hoping to hear. Was amazed CFCF wasn't on DISCO3 since he was on 1&2. Same with Pictureplane. But CFCF knows how to remix HEALTH and now I needa find 3+

February 23, 2017 on HEALTH – “Euphoria” Video & DISCO 3 Album Stream
My main gripe with DISCO3 is that it sort of abandoned the aesthetic set by the two previous DISCO albums. For me, the main draw of the first two was that it gave us these pretty great dance cuts that constantly made you question: "How did they make these out of those noisy originals?" They also highlighted Jake's vocals, which in turn made me respect the originals a lot more. But DISCO3 sounds like another HEALTH album. Nothing wrong with that, as "Euphoria" is almost as good as "USA Boys" so no complaints with new HEALTH material. But the remixes are even more out there then the originals. Perhaps it's due to DEATH MAGIC being HEALTH's most polished record, so maybe they decided to go the opposite way with DISCO3? I don't know. What I do know is that compared to DISCO2, DISCO3 is a let down.

Who wants to have a caption contest for that Arca press photo? I'll start! "So THAT'S what fucking a Wendy's Frosty feels like..."

Pretty solid review by [REDACTED] but it suffers from the lack of a numerical score telling me what to think so I don't have to read the article. 5.9

February 21, 2017 on Premature Evaluation: Sun Kil Moon Common As Light And Love Are Red Valleys Of Blood
Kim Burrell: "“To every person that is dealing with the homosexual spirit, that has it, I love you because God loves you. But God hates the sin in you and me, anything that is against the nature of God. I’m called to do what God called me to do, and that’s it, and I do it with passion.” Kim Burrell: Not allowed on Ellen. Migos: " “Damn, Makonnen!” Quavo bellows after an awkward interlude. I mention support I saw online for Makonnen’s decision. “They supported him?” Quavo asks, raising an eyebrow. “That’s because the world is fucked up,” says Offset. “This world is not right,” Takeoff says." Migos: Allowed on Ellen. I'm not saying I know a damn thing about anything, but I think that's "the line" as far as musicians making controversial statements on homosexuality. Or maybe it's because Migos have a #1 song and Kim didn't? Again, I have no clue. There's the Ellen evidence though.

IIRC the main reason Partie Traumatic got panned was because the 4 songs on it that were previously on The Wizard of Ahhhs significantly differed from their original incarnations as rough MySpace demos. I remember shopping around that EP and rocking it on weekends repeatedly, in large part because it was loud and it rocked! But then when I heard the versions on Partie Traumatic they sounded... neutered. It was instantly apparent. Yes, the songs were still there, but the shimmering electronic production had glossed them up and lost some of the pure energy from that original EP. That's how I interpreted the hatchet job over yonder. They had BNM'd an EP with the idea of, "Wow, if this band got the right backing, we could get a whole album that SOUNDS LIKE THIS EP." But then they went for that 2008 "Let's sounds like MGMT and Cut Copy" approach, which is fine, but felt like a betrayal to the sound they nailed on the head with their EP. Also that album review was posted the Friday before their music festival. You could tell they were turning in a quick one before they all went out and partie'd that weekend.

I literally went back to AOTW thread to see if that Boz Skaggs cover had received enough upvotes to get in today. Was pretty let down when I realized it hadn't. One of the few comments where I saw it and went, "Oh! That's where! I learned something!" Props Scott for putting teaching FIRST!

"And now they’ve made one that can rival it." Oh wow yes they did! I think I may like this better than the "Come Get Her" video. Something about some old white women smoken' weed and busten' a move. Visual proof that we CAN get along with one another.

For starters, the big giant puddle phenomena exists because of the Earth's distance from the sun, its rotation, orbit, and probably a few other science/space things that allowed this planet to harbor life as we know it. What I'm saying is that our personal puddle phenomena is merely a glimpse at what's truly at play in the gigantic picture that we call the galaxy for short. As best as I can tell, it's made up of opposing forces (Photons/Electrons) that distill into our own human experience in the forms of dualities (Left/Right, Summer/Winter, etc.). Everything consuming nothing or nothing consuming everything. How did these polar opposites come to be? I have no fucking clue, but I suspect it's at the root of everything/nothing. As two great philosophers once asked: "Magnets, how do they work?"

Except the phenomena that is human experience was born from the epic struggle of good and evil. Well, "good and evil" is one way to describe it. Black/White, Ones/Zeroes, Winning/Losing, etc. It's the inexplicable mystery that birthed this "puddle" and is still, though indefinable, the best explanation we have for this mess.

Even without proof, there are a few of those points that make certain sense. The Iran one in particular. He's been name dropping them repeatedly recently. This administration needs a war just like W. did and he'll find one whether it's with Iran or not. This country is gearing up for war with someone... wherever they're hiding! 4 or 5 strike me as optimistic thinking and very well could be happening. Even if it is happening, we're far away from getting his fat ass out of the Oval Office chair. Not if Steve Bannon has anything to say about it, which I wouldn't be surprised if he has a plan for both outcomes. That man straight up terrifies me. As for the Russia ties, you have to be living on another planet than me to not know something is definitely OFF about Agent Orange's nonchalant attitude towards them. Who knows what blackmail they have on him, but seeing as how the scumbag got elected and sworn in AFTER we knew about grabben' em & golden showers... Is this creature even blackmail-able? What would they have to have on him to make our jaded country flinch? It would have to be worse than nefarious at this point I'm afraid. Eh, either way, thanks Moby for giving me an opportunity to vent random political thoughts on a music Web site. Really glad you got those thoughts locked in the Internet bank so you can "cash out" when all this shit happens oh wait who will even fucking care if even a pinch of this shit actually goes down. *le sigh*

I added "In Films" to the SWP playlist in hopes of spooking someone. To think it's been 2 years since it's "initial release date." Their Web site hasn't been updated in 2 months. We got "Dear Tommy" (the song) back in August and we even talked about what if Chromatics & Frank Ocean released albums at the same time. (Oh! 2016... twas' a sillier time...) I wouldn't expect it, only because my heart has been so hardened over these 2 years that I'm going to have to finally hear what "Fresh Blood" sounds like before it thaws for Dear Tommy in the flesh. Not to mention, IMDB camp has been pretty quiet since the Mike Simonetti tweets about them withholding payments... Could be IMDB has been working out some legal issues a la TOOL. Comparing TOOL to Chromatics. On that note... see ya in AOTW on V-Day for my missive to Tommy.

It's a lot easier to make up something to support your point of view. Since you seemingly have a John Malkovich window into the Migos' mind, why don't you tell us exactly what they meant when they said: “They supported him?” Quavo asks, raising an eyebrow. “That’s because the world is fucked up,” says Offset. “This world is not right,” Takeoff says. “We ain’t saying it’s nothing wrong with the gays,” says Quavo. “That’s wack, bro.” Go for it cheap suit. Forget the apology, since that was just a PR stunt like you factually stated. Explain to me how each of those lines equate Migos to being as homophobic as the lead singer of Slayer.
