The font of that meme makes it look like an Eric Andre Show interstitial, which makes it even better.

September 18, 2019 on Fake Viral Photo Of Beto O’Rourke Wetting Himself Is Actually (Sandy) Alex G After Spilling Beer
T is approaching the god tier of artists who direct their own videos. He's already mastered the goofy and cartoonish and now he's even knocked the prestige costume drama look out of the park. This thing looks almost Kubrickian.

Sad news but any additional excuse to read this incredible tour name in print is certainly welcome.

Wait is Snoop actually on this song? Did he make the damn beat or something?

It's not terribly hard to clown on the guy, but every single ounce of "maybe Kid Cudi wasn't that great to begin with" absolutely evaporated out of my body when I saw him close the Kids See Ghosts set at Flog Gnaw last year with "Pursuit of Happiness." It was wild and kind of powerful to see thousands and thousands of people sharing an incredible moment of connection. Not to get too bong-rippy about it, of course.

I'd personally say the original god-tier run extends through Rust Never Sleeps but could definitely see the case for capping at Zuma.

That word always makes me think of the expression "galactically incapable of friend-have" from good ol' Strongbad Emails.

September 10, 2019 on The Number Ones: Elton John & Kiki Dee’s “Don’t Go Breaking My Heart”
There's also a scene in Ella Enchanted where Anne Hathaway sings "Somebody to Love," and it has certainly stood the test of time in my memory more than however the song was used in Bohemian Rhapsody, which I truly can't even remember.

Have to agree. Not a bad song, but I was hoping for a little more of Future meeting twigs on her ground, not the other way around.

How are the performances? Ashton Sanders was great in Moonlight, but the images from the show made it seem like I'll have to suspend disbelief to buy him as RZA.

He's absolutely one of the best doing it right now.

Danny season approaching! Fuck whatever y'all been hearing! Now just have to decide if I should go back home to Texas and see him there or catch him at the Regent. Truly can't wait.

September 5, 2019 on Danny Brown – “Dirty Laundry” Video
This hits the mark more than my comment did. Feel a little bad about calling this guy, who is probably very ill and suffering himself, "scum." I think I assumed that a dealer would give their rich famous client fentanyl because it's cheaper and the dealer thinks the client is too dumb to know the difference. I know there's often much more to it than that.

Absolutely tragic. What complete scum. Hope he's brought to justice but also that this doesn't drag out and keep those who are still healing from finding peace. So very many people loved this man.

I became a hater around the time he started talking about how hip-hop was a bad genre for emotional expression, but then "Psycho" and "Sunflower" wound up two of my favorite tracks of last year. Ultimately, I dig the guy. Also, I'm reminded of coke's very solid Posty Halloween costume from last year. I propose a Matty Healy costume this year, with as much time as you spend defending these two goofballs.

Missy Elliott “might” have the greatest videography of all time? I truly think her only competition is Michael himself. Who else?

I was under the impression that we surrendered the quest for authenticity when we discovered Rick Ross used to work in law enforcement and decided his drug raps still slapped anyway.

August 29, 2019 on Premature Evaluation: Lana Del Rey Norman Fucking Rockwell!
My first and only real day spent in Long Beach I was down there picking up a friend coming back on the Catalina ferry. The most interesting things we found to do were get Vietnamese at Uncle Fungs and go to Fingerprints Music and then we called it a day. (We went and stood in the parking lot and looked at the Queen Mary – for Arrested Development and Wolf Parade-related nostalgia – but that's about it.)

But why doesn't she skip on down to the actual LBC? Would probably take only 30 seconds at that size!

You're totally right, and as more time passes, I think this is almost the universal consensus.

What concerts are people most excited for coming up? I really threw down on The National at The Greek on 9/2 and Bon Iver at The Forum on 9/15 and can't wait for either.

I love that these guys are still in their early 30s, meaning they've been making old man music since before they could even legally drink in the States.

Great point. The reveal in Señorita is more bone-chilling than the somewhat snarkier version of the same point made by the FUN! reveal.

August 22, 2019 on Vince Staples – “So What?”
Also can we talk about how stone cold the "FUN!" video still is? Vince has had so many great, pointed videos and it still may be his best. Great concept, showcases his personality and the home he loves, and the ending is so goddamn savage I felt it in my chest.

This checks out, as she introduced the guy as her "friend for 35 years."
