It's literally a disservice to humanity that they are not on here. Sadly, I am the only one in #beachhousehive on staff. I'm sure I'll be writing something about them soon enough, though ;)

Yes! I honestly can't believe it hasn't been a single yet.

Sure, I guess. To be honest, I don't really care about either of them at all, but I do get paid to blog so occasionally I must weigh in. All Justin Timberlake music sounds like alien farts.

February 1, 2018 on Pro-Trump Country Singer Toby Keith Contributed To Justin Timberlake’s Man Of The Woods
I understand where you're coming from, but I don't have a horse in this race. I don't support Justin Timberlake because his music sucks. I don't support Toby Keith because his music sucks, and also because he plays music in front of and implicitly supports a President that would probably rather I and most of my friends were dead in a ditch somewhere. I also don't think it's wrong to point out Timberlake's hypocrisy in this situation, especially when his "Supplies" video was a masturbatory attempt to show how "woke" he is. Both of these people are hella rich and will be fine, I'm a lowly blogger, and the world spins on.

He's been working with FKA Twigs, so there is hope!

I've heard the Special Explosion album, yes. I don't really like it. Everyone likes Billy Joel! (JK, I don't care.)

December 25, 2017 on Drake – “Pistols”
I really didn't like Ghost Story - felt like it disappeared up its own ass tbh and I really wanted to like it. Song To Song I did not like... did a little review of it here.

December 20, 2017 on Noteworthy Movie Soundtracks From 2017
It was definitely impressive from a technical standpoint, but as an actually good movie? Nahh... All the characters are stupid! There's no emotional resonance! But it is definitely fun in a roller coaster ride sort of way.

Love SOPHIE, but Ponyboy is just OK to be honest. Agree with you on Immaterial Girls tho

We actually didn't do one that year, sadly. Thankfully no one started any new bands in 2014 so we lucked out! :)

September 29, 2017 on Watch Charli XCX Bring Out “Boys” On Fallon
As our resident TWIABP supporter, I guess it's worth saying here that I'm pretty underwhelmed by Always Foreign. I wouldn't say it's bad or anything, but the best moments are just echoes of older songs and the rest is pretty unremarkable to me. But I'm sure a lot of people will be into it! I'm still excited to see where they go next.
