February 23, 2018 on Wavves & Culture Abuse – “Big Cloud”
I stumbled on the uncut Chappelle Show interview with Rick James last night. I’d seen the skit plenty, but holy hell the full interview is full of tear-inducing laughs. You can hear the people interviewing dying off camera as Rick just burns the hell outta Charlie Murphy repeatedly. Sad neither of them are with us anymore, but if you’re looking for a good celeb interview since Quincy ain’t doing them, I recommend that full interview. 20 mins of raw comedy.

“Five Seconds” was actually good enough to deserve its Times Square premiere.

The headline makes it seem like they released a song called “God Bless the great Billy Graham” Don’t let colons make you lazy.

February 21, 2018 on Kendrick Lamar & SZA Sued Over “All The Stars” Video
Which would lead many to believe that they didn't make it onto blond(e) because they were not good enough, which is preposterous. If anything, they just didn't fit the MOOD of blond(e). A song like "Slide on Me" would indeed feel out of place on blond(e) A song like "Rushes" / "Rushes Too" would steal the spotlight away from the current highs of blond(e) All is multiple ways of saying what if he genuinely had two albums worth of music and just released them? What if there is no less than and it's just, hey, two great Frank Ocean albums. I don't see why the other site would have any stake in his own personal record label and why they wouldn't just celebrate both albums as great.

"Dancing in the Show Tonight" > "Smells Like Teen Spirit" It's funnier when you read bloc's hot "The Mollusk > Nevermind" take replace with the above first track comparison.

"Because Frank wants it to be..." I'd love to know what evidence you have to support that. My evidence is when I was watching Frank live in 2012, he was taking lots of time between songs. He apologized for the delay with the caveat, "I'm a perfectionist." So do tell how a self-claimed perfectionist justifies releasing an album under his name as nothing more than a contractual deal breaker? How could a self-claimed perfectionist bring himself to release an album of music just to meet a contractual obligation? Don't you think he'd want it to be a good listen too? Something he can stand behind for all time? Because I'm not the only person that thinks Endless is a good listen. Frank performed 3 songs from it live when I saw him last year. Other people think it's a good album. Yet the other site acts like it doesn't even count. I think that's a bullshit lie.

Anybody else see that video on the other site where they double-down on Endless merely being "the last move in a chess game" instead of, you know, a full-length Frank Ocean album? They're still calling blond(e) his "true sophomore studio LP" as if Endless was another nostalgia, ULTRA. or something... It's not so much that I'm mad, it's that I can't wrap my head around how so many music fans cherish Frank Ocean and awaited his channel ORANGE follow-up only to find that some corners of the internet act as if he only released one album. They make it seem like Endless was just a bunch of white noise to piss Def Jam off and blond(e) is the only "actual" Frank Ocean album. Of course, the Endless physical copies haven't shipped so I guess it's not quite at the "technically an album" stage, but when it does, how can they stand behind a video treating Endless more like a business decision than an actual piece of amazing music from one of music's greatest current talents? Why is it so hard to say, "Frank Ocean returned with not one, but two great albums in 2016"? Why do you gotta make a video explaining how one is definitely less than the other when it definitely is not?

You do know you coined the phrase: "Shut up and play the hits" ?

It'd be cool if they came out, shut up, and played the hits.

I remember finding a shared drive with these songs back in 2015, but end of year is such a rough time for new music. I spun it, but like most Women material, multiple spins are necessary. Thanks for the heads up and will revisit this album when it becomes easier to hear. How would you rank Cindy Lee against the Women and Preoccupations albums? Let it be known that if Public Strain isn’t #1 judgment will ensue.

February 20, 2018 on Album Of The Week: Screaming Females All At Once
There once was a time when bands had to keep their albums under ~45 minutes because of vinyl restraints. I still think that ballpark is the perfect album length. If you’re gonna go longer, it better be an hour minimum with a dense conceptual narrative, a few interludes and a multi-song outro with at least 5 singles on it.

I bought that Tobias Jesso Jr album on vinyl and it was one of the few records I didn’t even bother bringing to Colorado.

Lest we forget in 2010 she had a guest verse on THE BEST KANYE WEST ALBUM EVER. FERGIE! I know ya'll all try to pretend that never happened, because so do I.
