Neither of them are losers - that much is clear at least by our current definition of success as a society.. and I don’t think she sold out this is who she almost certainly always was.. A Soldier of Convenience. Doesn’t change her being a brilliantly talented artist - she’s just added to the long list of duplicitous assholes who make art.

July 25, 2018 on Grimes Says She Tried To Instigate A Tesla Union Vote, Defends Elon Musk’s GOP Donations
That paints both of them in a really bad light - and shows him to be a completely ineffective and capricious leader. I’m going to assume she’s taking out her ass or he lied to her to get her off his back. This is a fine example of a pattern I’ve noticed with young Super privileged educated kids who crow on about trendy causes for years and years and how disgusting anybody who doesn’t agree is (usually conveniently poor people). 5-10 years later they so often turn around and walk straight into bed (literally or figuratively!) with the very corporate classes they supposedly despised.. and suddenly everything is changed and the reality is they were just going home where they always belonged. That’s why I find it hard to take them seriously. Fake allies is I believe what some call this type of individual. Grimes can do/date whatever she wants it’s her life, it’s just the years and years of holier than thou posturing that makes me feel justified to even have an opinion. Like with Bono et al.

Also I just clicked as to why Drakes music has been becoming even slower and emptier - he’s playing massive booming arenas. He’s rap U2 - it all makes sense to me now.

July 24, 2018 on Drake & Migos Postpone Tour
I kind of want to go to this tour out of curiosity but I’m not sure I could handle the douchebaggery of the audience.. If I can get cheap tickets and I have nothing better to do I might give it a shot. Curious what a big pop/rap stadium show is like these days vibe wise. It won’t be Vince Staples or Yeezy, but then again not much is.

Then Liam proceeds to sing one of the most timeless versions of C&A I’ve ever heard from him.. if he was singing that flat I’d maybe throw a fish at him too.

July 24, 2018 on OK Which One Of You Threw A Fish At Liam Gallagher?
I’d probably be alive but I’d be a real piece of work - I’d almost certainly be exactly the type of person I reserve a special disdain for.. not going to lie I’d still go for it - I really like yachts and the thought of affording a summer palace with endless gardens somewhere on the Italian coast fills me with uncontrollable joy. Rebirth me!

Wow! Naming a bar after a song about avoiding rehab written and sung by a young woman who drank herself to death is an interesting proposition.. I almost admire the hubris.

July 24, 2018 on Demi Lovato Hospitalized For Heroin Overdose: Report
To preface this comment - don’t do it, any advantages of the high are greatly outweighed by the inherent downsides of becoming an opiate user.. and it’s very rare to just “try it” and not want more. Every junkie at some point was a kid who only wanted to try it a few times for fun and exploration and ended up under its spell for years or decades (if they survived). Being a junkie now is so very dangerous - with all the fentanyl floating around the chances of getting a spoon that will kill you are just so high. I don’t think junkies are growing old these days so much like they used to.. It’s very easy to get - one just needs to speak to someone who uses heroin and they will point you in the right direction. If you don’t know anyone who uses heroin - it’s not that hard to find someone who does.. I guess I learned to spot them over time but the signs are all there it’s not hard. My buddy and I used to be able to score heroin anywhere we went really easily. Every city has a place with street dealers - the Internet makes it all so much easier I imagine.. a quick google search will certainly give you the answer.

In a way being black, successful, and openly queer is a political statement in and of itself - and does great good for young people who need heroes. If that’s as far as it goes it’s good enough for me.

This is really good - great performance. I am willing to turn a blind eye to Alex’s cringey moves when they sound this fucking good.

This is great - Rocky keeps up and doesn’t rap for long enough for it to get boring, and Tyler is excellent as usual.

What’s the bet Jay promised to help with re election for the mayor.. not mad at Jay for doing what every other business man does. Still - Fuck politicians fuck mayors they’re almost all corporate bought scum. We need to start taking care of this problem as a society. All the people who think Trump is what’s wrong with the political system in this country are woefully ignorant to what’s really going on.. They’re supposed to represent their constituents - they hardly ever do.

Interested to see if he goes even more minimal synth poppy like the Zhu song or goes back more psych stuff. I’m sure it will be good.

July 23, 2018 on Drake’s “In My Feelings” Gets A Lil B Remix About Adopting Cats
Probably a 1 for me to be fair to it. It’s indulgent and doesn’t really give me anything when I listen to it other than an overwhelming feeling that Alex Turner is probably really tiresome to be around. One reference nobody seems to have mentioned but seems apt to me is The Doors - there’s Jim Morrison vibes all over this thing to me. However I’m also really happy that a massive stadium rock band is making this stuff. It’s not just cynically engineered for alt/rock radio which is becoming so very rare these days.. I’ll take this over imagine dragons core any day of the week. I guess I just have high expectations of these guys, and as others have said it’s a really cool idea and vibe but I wish they had written songs a little less grating. I think they might remake this record in the future much better. If it ends up being the start of an exploration I’ll look back on it fondly. 4/5

July 23, 2018 on Arctic Monkeys – “Tranquility Base Hotel & Casino” Video
There seems to be a common misconception amongst some singers/artists that the musicians who play on their records are just lucky to be there and should be grateful for the opportunity and not expect proper compensation. Yes any musician is extraordinarily lucky to get in the same room as a front person with a vision and brilliant artistry that can carry the music to millions of people around the planet. They don’t come along every day. But you should also be grateful for the collective decades they spent honing their craft and that they decided to spend their time sharing their talents together with you to create something special. Everyone should be grateful whenever a record is successful, it’s a wonderful thing. I always find these disputes so sad. It’s like when families fight over winning the lottery.

July 23, 2018 on Pitchfork Music Festival: The Gratification And Frustration Of Lauryn Hill
This is correct - nobody can tell you what you can and cannot perform in a live setting (otherwise covers bands wouldn’t exist). However changing the arrangements of the song will have no impact on whether performance royalties are paid to the writers of the song - as long as it’s recognisably a “version” of the song it remains a performance of the piece no matter whether you rearrange it to be played on harmonica and triangle at 220bpm in 5/4 timing. So basically - if this is what she is saying is her reason I think it’s bullshit.. she may just not want to play the original versions because she despises the musicians and therefore their work. Of course this has the opposite of the intended effect and just really goes to show how much the musicians contributions added to the compositions and their success. Artists who don’t want to properly compensate the musicians who helped make their records that made (in this case) tens of millions of dollars really leave a bad taste in my mouth. There are some cases of musicians holding the artist to ransom unfairly and behaving like assholes but the lions share of these situations are artists who have little to no respect for their collaborators. I’m going to go out on a limb and say from past behaviour I will assume Lauren is doing just that, it seems to be up her alley so to speak. Could be wrong. There is no Miseducation without the musicians Lauren, and clearly as you have proven over the last 20 years you were incapable of repeating its success with other musicians. Further solidifying their claim to a massive contribution in its success.

He’s definitely in that conversation but I don’t know if I’d say it’s “completely obvious”, I don’t know if there can be such thing as a single greatest recording artist of all time, more like a club/group of them.

July 23, 2018 on David Bowie’s First Recording Discovered In Old Bread Basket
This guy had this sitting there for 20+ years and was waiting for Bowie to die to sell it as he couldn’t while he was still alive. Not to say there’s anything wrong with that! I’m sure as hell Bowie & hiers don’t need the money and it’s a cool thing to have done in your life - be in a schoolboy band with one of the greatest of all time. If I had cash to burn I’d definitely put in a bid for this it’s such a dope piece of memorabilia. Hope it fetches good money.

July 23, 2018 on 6ix9ine Attacked, Kidnapped, Robbed in Brooklyn
You’re right - he is incredibly smart and makes excellent decisions. His music is sometimes fantastic, and sometimes underwhelming however - can’t be denied. The odds of his success in life were so stacked against him yet by the age of 22 he was a world famous artist, writing multi-platinum hit records that influenced and altered the entire pop music landscape. That takes intelligence, hard work, dedication and creative genius. He deserves full credit for all his success. He is also a creative powerhouse and deserves respect in his field by any metric. His group has also made one stone cold classic album - Culture. This is a monumental achievement and an era defining album. It’s not my favourite rap album by a long stretch, but it is one of the most fully realised pop records in any genre this decade.

July 21, 2018 on Offset Arrested Near Atlanta For Alleged Gun Possession
To be fair - if I was him I’d carry a gun too.. otherwise he’d have to move everywhere with armed security. Less than a month after the robbery and killing of another young rap star (just the latest in a long line of such incidents) it’s clear to me why he would feel his life is in danger and the need to protect himself. Sure, he has to get a slap on the wrist as the law against felons carrying guns needs to be upheld for obvious reasons. But to see this as a clear moral failing on his part is shortsighted at best. He is a man, he has children. I understand.
