Marge Simpson: Oh, honey, I know how you feel. When I was a girl, I had a crush on Bobby Sherman…
[Lisa bursts out laughing]
Marge Simpson: [annoyed] The point is, I want you to stop making these calls!
Lisa Simpson: [serious] All right, Mom. I promise you, you will never be billed for another call.
Lisa Simpson: Bobby Sherman?
Marge Simpson: Mmm…
Oh my God, you guys, the world may have gone to shit since our sweet innocent 2014 days but now we have Frinkiac! That changes everything! Well, y’know except the fact that we’re almost certainly going to die horrible, horrible deaths because the GOP won’t relinquish control of Congress even if it comes out tomorrow that Donald Trump brought the nuclear codes with him to Mar-a-Lago so that his microwave couldn’t steal them but…Frinkiac! This makes the possibilities of of Simpsons screencap and .gif sites that are much better than dank urine soaked hell hole virtually endless!
And we are back! Because as evidenced by the fact that I’m posting on a blog that I have not updated since 2014 (at 3:43 A.M.!) I am desperate for something to do while I am holed up in this Godforsaken house going stir crazy. So what better lucrative hobby to invest m time in than to add to this completely directionless site of the jumbled interests that result from the misfiring synapses in my brain which include amongst other things, music.
Hey, speaking of music Process by Sampha is still easily the best album that I’ve heard this year. This dude deserves to blow up huge so put away that god damn Sam Smith already and…oh shit wait, that’s no good! I swear I’m not still stuck in 2014! I mean put away that uhhh Ed Sheeran! Yes that’ll do. Because as Hayes and Kulap so aptly put it on the most recent episode of Who Charted? (See I get podcasts now. I’m hip, I’m with it. I’m quoting Austin Powers. Oh fuck!) “Shape of You” is a baby song. And not like in a “making babies music” way but as as in literally the instrumental and melody is something a God damn literal baby would create. Anyway, where was I? Oh yes, Sampha! He is the Brit who deserves your attention so shower him with listens, all ten of you who visit this defunct site. Who are you and what random Simpsons reference brought you here?
Cormega – MARS (Dream Team) feat AZ, Redman and Styles P
From Mega Philosophy, the 2014 Cormega album produced entirely by Large Professor. Three New York (and one Newark) legends over one of the best producers of all time? Ain’t nothing wrong with that. Definitely one of my favorite tracks of the year.
Homer: Aww twenty dollars? I wanted a peanut!
Homer’s Brain: Twenty dollars can buy many peanuts!
Homer: Explain how!
Homer’s Brain: Currency can be exchanged for goods and services.
Trick Daddy – In Da Wind feat Cee-Lo Green and Big Boi
Rod Flanders: He’s gaining on us!
Todd Flanders: I’m scared!
Grandpa: “Come in, come in. Mayday! I’m losing your transmission!
Angry Krusty Burger Patron: “I SAID ‘FRENCH FRIES’!”
Grandpa: Do we serve…French…fries?
Flying Lotus – Medication Meditation
From the new Grand Theft Auto V Radio, a collab between producer Flying Lotus, fresh off his critical smash You’re Dead and hip-hop legend Krayzie Bone. Krayzie’s signature buttery smooth sing song flow and voice fit perfectly over FlyLo’s chilled out instrumental. I’ve been a Bone Thugs stan for about 15 years, but in my opinion Krayzie Bone is one of the most underrated rappers of all time. In terms of longevity and consistency I have no problem putting him right up there with rappers like Black Thought and Ghostface.
Vince Staples – Limos feat Teyana Taylor
From the fantastic Hell Can Wait EP. Vince has steadily been getting better with every release and with legendary producer No I.D. (and the potential Nas, Common, James Fauntleroy, Jhene Aiko, etc features that come with that) as well as young stars like Mac Miller and Earl Sweatshirt firmly in his corner I cannot wait for his full length Def Jam debut next year. But until then, Hell Can Wait and songs like “Limos” will definitely stay in constant rotation.
