Oh dear, oh dear.
I couldn’t afford Lasers, so only managed to lend my ear yesterday. In light of the ‘glowing’ Pitchfork review (3.0 outta 10 ain’t bad right?) whilst Lupe admitted he not only hated the album, but it was a label-forced cashcow. I hoped they were wrong…they weren’t. It well and truly sucks. With the exception of All Black Everything, it was fairly unlistenable.
There were some, well, interesting collabs. WHO THE HELL IS MDMA? & CAN WE PROMOTE HIM TO A CLASS A PRICK? He makes will.i.am’s recent vocoder work grammy worthy. Seriously, seriously gutted. I don’t know whether to rip Lupe to shreds via a Youtube response vid or start a t shirt line with WE STILL LOVE LUPE as the tag. Either way, i hastily deleted it off my iTunes and pushed the memory of Lasers to the back of my mind by listening to Enemy of The State mixtape in its entirety.
Anyway, rant over.
Sights: The sun, the sun, the sun. You know what that looks like so I won’t bother with google images on that one. I’ve already seen a few chubby tattoed torsos…best time of the year.
Coalition going all Earl Grey on us. I used to laugh at the Daily Show because British politics was so far removed from the madness of our cousins across the pond, now I chuckle a little less often.
I don’t even want the real poster to adorn this blog, so i chose a parody. Current affairs satire eat yr heart out.
Take out the a and youre almost there
Sounds: Not Lasers, as you mighta guessed fools.
When's The Great American Rap Album coming out again?
We are going up, we are going up. Well hopefully. Was at the Bristol Rovers game and as per usual, the Northam stand was electric. Scraped a win, thanks to some Brazilian class courtesy of Guly Do Prado.
Wait, this has the look and feel of an Apple advert…Blatent plagiarism aside, the Amazon Kindle advert is accompanied by a delightful song by Bibio. Lovers Carvings is lifted off 2009’s Ambivalence Avenue – a road I hope to reside in one day.
Also making me megalol like a bieber fan was MySawToothMusic getting all riled up about people like myself, otherwise known as lovers of music:
‘Its funny because it almost seems like some people who heard it before the commercial feel like they deserve special rights to the song or somthin, news-flash just because you heard somthin before someone else DOESNT MAKE YOU GOD’
No Mister Molar, but it does make you cooler.
Scents: I had no nasal inspiration this week so i turn to one of the most peculiar blogs I have ever stumbled upon: http://smelloftheday.wordpress.com/ – I can’t wait to smell the Santa Ana winds I tell you, I’m booking my plane ticket just to smell that ‘diesel mixed with the heavy morning moisture of fog’ at Heathrow.
Taste: Innocent Cafe. Okay, it wasn’t quite that, but it had that feel. If you’re ever pottering about that fine spa town of Bath, be sure to pop into the Chapel Arts Cafe. As my mum said,’ it’s nice not to go to Prezzo’s’ and I know what she means. With one of my favourite eateries struggling (Piccolo Mondo, Windsor Terrace), it’s nice to find somewhere tastily independent.
Usually pretty full
If you do pop in, grab yourself a Morrocan flatbread, it’s blinding.
Looks arent everything
Here’s the deets: http://www.chapelarts.org/cafe/
Touch: Dangermouse. Slicker than your average.
