Comments from street hassle

Being offensive is an accomplishment in this day and age? Hardly. I feel like every time a celebrity or artist opens their mouth these days an offended and angry pitchfork wielding mob starts forming before words even start coming out.

It's like if the Good Charlotte singer started calling himself god, or a modern Shakespeare, or the next Steve Jobs. You can't say shit like that and then release music that isn't great. Well you can, but it makes you look like an idiot.

I'm having the same problem. I've always loved Kanye's ego because he's always backed up all of his talk by releasing some of the best music in the genre. Now he's releasing these songs which to my ears just sound weak and boring and suddenly knowing that this music was made by a man who probably honestly believes his shit doesn't stink is starting to rub me the wrong way. Still holding out hope that his whole album isn't gonna be this bad though.

I'm with Noel. I'd also reunite Oasis for a ton of money.

Man, I'm a big fan of both Kanye and Paul, but I have to say these first couple of songs might literally be my least favorite songs Kanye has ever released. Sorry guys, I'm just not seeing the redeeming factors in these...

He should marry Amy Adams now. There's some chemistry there with the names I think.

Damn, that was supposed to be a reply to Erik Didriksen (I hope I'm pronouncing that right).

I'm hoping it's Julian Casablancas. After Mark complains about that "Arby's Roast Beef Garbage Can Shit" coming from the other stage, Julian can respond by telling us all about how he's looking to move away from festivals because they've become too over run with old white brunch eating pricks.

So I'm just gonna be honest and admit that at this time yesterday I had never heard "Uptown Funk" (I just flat out don't listen to the radio) and rolled my eyes when I saw this was the album of the week. Then by chance I heard the song for the first time at a party last night and kind of instinctively knew what it was and was really feeling it. Went home and listened to the album and decided to officially rescind my eye roll. Sorry 'Gum, you were right.

January 14, 2015 on Album Of The Week: Mark Ronson Uptown Special
Last year it was Gov's Ball, and this year Shaky Knees is the festival that has totally overachieved with a killer line-up. I'd take this over any line-up I've seen from a big name fest so far.

Didn't expect to be saying this, but... I'd much rather go to Shaky Knees this year than Bonnaroo.

Or make it through a one song performance without sounding winded the whole time...

Kinda surprised not to see "Can I Kick It?" or "Lyrics to Go", but this is still a pretty damn solid list.

Just goes to show Letterman is just a sucker for lead singer dancing. The dude put on an incredibly weak vocal performance and the song itself seemed pretty uninspiring. Apparently the thrill of the frontman prancing about gimmick was enough to outweigh all of that for old Dave though.

I wish she hadn't apologized. You made a piece of art, in this day and age that's enough to mean you offended someone because there are literally people out there that go looking for ways to be offended by things. I think musicians need to stop softening the impact of their art by apologizing for their songs or videos or messages.

Decent line-up but hard to feel like they didn't regress big time after last year's monster bill. But it's probably unfair to expect such a young festival to consistently put out lineups THAT good.

I was wondering why my girlfriend was already trying to convince me to go to a Lana Del Rey concert again. Like "Didn't I turn you down on this same offer like 9 months ago?", but now it makes sense. Lana's gotta capitalize on that (already dwindling) hype now before it's gone in a couple years.

I'd be shocked if we don't hear it before then (if we ever hear it at all).

"i" had me really worried I wasn't gonna like this album and that he had already peaked. This song has me beyond excited because now I think the best is yet to come from Kendrick, can't wait for this album now!
