Find Me On:
You are totally right. Producer is from Memphis. Thanks for pointing that out!
You know what? I take it back. Despite the kind of jank ears, the work is really good. Someone below pointed out that it could be fake because there’s no definition on the ends, but really the line work is just finessed really well and it clearly healed beautifully. I concede to you, KiDCHAIR. (Also, I don’t watch Ink Master on Spike TV, either.)
You are not watching enough Ink Master on Spike TV, my friend.
I don’t know about those ears…
I swear, I was totally not using poetic license about the whole “RUDE” thing because I actually did have so much trouble hearing from where I was able to see and moving elsewhere felt like a fool’s errand. What a bummer.
Never seen Tegan & Sara before, so I don’t know but I would guess the way she sings does probably put a lot of strain on her voice.
Just makes it so impossible to break the physical habit, though, right?
Wait sorry, it is a part of the first three songs that open up the album. I was saying the three in tandem are a great way to open a record. Sorry for the semantic confusion.
Total brain blip that is making me really dumb right now because I have probably listened to that album 100 times. Thanks for not too brutally pointing it out.
In his defense, his family does have a background in television. Yuk yuk yuk.
I’m under the impression that the rest of the EP is more in the vein of “ICE.MOON,” which I’m excited about it. I think she’ll definitely be an interesting artist to watch.
There are so many overlooked gems from Saddle Creek 50 period. Good call!
I am taking back what I said about “Little Pusher Love Girl” last week. This is amazing.
Well, this explains the rain boots…
“Real bitches do real things.”
Nick, I’m so glad that I could help contextualize her music and I totally understand why someone would not like it. I actually think she has a lot of room for improvement but I’m glad she’s around.
But it’s I am really, really, really about eXquire’s verse on that song.
I would rather they take on R. Kelly’s “Gotham City.” But if we’re going best Batman soundtrack songs, my vote goes to “Partyman” by Prince, if only because I watched the scene where the Joker and his minions trashed the art museum a lot when I was kid.
High five for that.
What did Dr. Dre say when 50 cent made him a sweater?
I didn’t say that in the last comment, but I do think if someone asks to take you out, they should do in fact do that. If I asked a guy I would, I would pay. This past weekend, my best friend agreed to come with me to see a band in D.C. and I paid for her ticket because it wasn’t a “Hey, this band that I know we both mutually like is playing in town, should we go?” situation, it was a “Hey, I’d like to see my favorite band that you aren’t totally interested but they’re playing out of town. If you’ll come with me, I will pay for you” situation. I just think that’s the nice thing to do, but this is now looking more like a matter of me being a weirdo than it being proper. Oh well, gonna go wallow in a bucket of chicken wings while I wait for someone to ask about my 50 Cent joke.
That did not come off the way I intended. Essentially, if reaching for your wallet is an empty gesture, or a gesture to seem like you’re being nice but really you expect to be covered — dates, birthdays, business conversations — just don’t do it. Totally do it if you feel inclined to and really want to contribute, but I think if it’s an empty gesture and you don’t mean it, then that’s disingenuous.
Regarding Fair Dating World, the press release said Winner Dude has to pay for the second date and I just wanted to bring back the conversation to chicken wings. And I’ve failed us in the Win A Claire Joke About Chicken Wings contest. I promise the next bad joke is on me. I have one about 50 Cent giving Dr. Dre a sweater.
I know you’re kidding around, but I’m going to answer anyway: Nope and everyone should knock that gesture out of their repertoire because it’s capping a date off with disingenuous behavior. The press release does say, however, you have to pay if you go out again. But in my Fair Dating World View if *she* asks *you* out, I say you’re at least going dutch, if not getting wined and dined — with chicken wings — again.
I actually did not work with Carter. He is my successor twice removed, so I have never had the pleasure of meeting him but I have been told by people who do work with him that we are essentially the male/female version of each other. Hope that still makes a good egg.
I know favorites don’t constitute as best but I’d be hard-pressed to find something that isn’t Biggie- or Onyx-related to fall into that category. My personal vote goes to “Get Money” or “Lex Coups Bimaz and Benz” (which is neither of the aforementioned, but is so partytime, but also makes me wanna punch someone, I can’t not mention it) or “All We Got Iz Us” or “Cheapskate” which doesn’t count as NYC, since it’s from Yonkers, but people never give Sporty Thievz the credit they deserve for that one. And that was probably a way longer answer than you wanted.
Thank you, Michael! And no, your black metal paraphernalia is not disturbing me one bit. I am, however, slightly afraid of the placement of the Dosa Hunt poster, which makes it look like Dapwell is watching everything I do.
