The Only Difference Between Your ‘Making A Murderer’ Obsession And The Arcs, Is That They Wrote A Song About It.

Source: AV Club

After reading that Dan Auerbach of The Black Keys/The Arcs was compelled to write a song about Steven Avery and The Netflix Docu-Series it’s comforting to know that they might be as fixated as some of the rest of us.

The Arcs posted on their Soundcloud page:

It’s like Billy Childish says, “We live in troubled times”. Last week, we got a sneak peek at what goes on behind the curtains of our criminal justice system. A few sleepless nights later we gathered in the studio and wrote this song. Written, recorded, mixed and mastered in 2 days.

Hopefully these bullet points will make you feel better about your own MaM infatuation.

  • I have become admittedly annoying about this show.
  • I’m watching it for the second time.
  • Yes I signed the petition.
  • Short of threats, I have demanded that all my friends watch it in fact I told my hairdresser to tweet me after she watched it so I know she completed her “homework”.
  • I have gone down every MaM rabbit hole imaginable. This was a good one post show.
  • I am no longer getting replies to texts about it.

Let me also add:

  • Whoever played the conga drums in the background music deserves an Emmy
  • Ken “High Voice” Kratz is deserving of his Yelp reviews

 

Marvel’s Hip Hop Comic Book Crossover Will Make Your Day.

Marvel took classic Hip Hop album covers and superheroes and made the sickest mashup since chocolate and peanut butter. Check out the artwork here

Run The Jewels’ Killer Mike did the introduction and it will only make you love him more:

I have two dads, both of whom played a significant role in raising me: my biological father—a conservative, pro-gun cop—and my mom’s husband—my “dad,” a liberal man of the arts with an amazing collection of records and comics. He was the one that introduced me to comics. I still remember when he gave me first copy of Uncanny X-Men. Seeing Storm for the first time—a beautiful, powerful, dark-skinned woman that looked like my mother with a Mohawk—I was instantly drawn to her.

Comics became that thing for my dad and I that was ours. Going to Atlanta’s West End Mall with him became the highlight of my week. We’d get donuts at the Krispy Kreme, chill at the comic book store next door for hours, then catch a movie at the dollar theater. So when I first got news of Marvel Comics’ Run The Jewels variant covers, my dad was the first person I thought of and the second person I told (wives, bruh). To go from sharing comics with your dad to seeing something you’re a part of actually on a comic, to seeing those covers lay the groundwork for something as big as Marvel’s Hip-Hop cover initiative is unreal. Two things I love combined? It doesn’t get any cooler.

Without question, Marvel’s Hip-Hop variants are cool because they show how far-reaching Hip-Hop’s influences has grown, but they’re even cooler when you how perfect the pairings for the covers are. Choosing Nas’ Illmatic cover for Miles Morales’ debut in the Marvel Universe proper couldn’t have been more on point. The two Wolverine covers that flip DMX’s Flesh of My Flesh, Blood of My Blood and Ice Cube’s Death Certificate—awesome! Kamala Khan taking cue from The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill—fitting. Outkast’s Aquemini for the Inhumans—next level. I mean, think about that last one: In the Marvel Universe there used to be two basic players: traditional super heroes (Avengers, Spider-Man) and mutants (X-Men, Wolverine); in Rap, the conversation was originally dominated by East Coast and West Coast, then Outkast came along and cemented the South as a legitimate third force to be reckoned with. Just like the Inhumans are doing this year.

Another impressive thing about these covers is the range of artists/albums chosen. Lil B’s Blue Flame cover?! Says it all. The Sugar Hill Gang, Tupac, A$AP, Kendrick, ScHoolboy, De La, Wu Tang, Wiz, Public Enemy—hell, they even figured out how to use Vanilla Ice’s cover in a way that made perfect sense! The age of Internet lists has shows us how difficult it is to please everyone, but Marvel manages to represent Hip-Hop in every one of its various incarnations since its glorious inception. This was no small feat. This was clearly done with love and the type of responsibility we could only hope more people take cue from when representing such an influential art form in my life. Not to mention they look cool as $#!#!

Because you know Wonder Woman is pimpin’ in her invisible jet to “36” Chain” right now…

Adele Does A Perfect Impression Of How You Look Listening To Her Music.

getting ready…

A photo posted by @adele on

Adele posted this shot of her readying for tour at the gym and I wondered why that expression looks so familiar?

Then it hit me…

That’s exactly how we probably look while listening/sobbing uncontrollably to her beautiful music.

Quite Possibly The Most Awesomely Weird Headline Translation Ever.

I figured I would do a search for an update on Milky Chance and found this article.

Either I’m not up to speed on German slang or this translation is way off.

Any ideas as to what “Bald With A Giant Plate” could mean?? All are welcome because I got nothin.

Let’s listen to Milky Chance and ponder the possibilities.

Pretty Much Everyone Thinks Radiohead’s James Bond Theme Song Is Better Than Sam Smith’s And Now It’s Awkward.

Source: Flavorwire

So now we find out Radiohead composed a theme song for Spectre and director Sam Mendes decided to pass.

I don’t know how you turn down Radiohead but okay…no offense to Sam Smith obviously… it’s just, ya know, Radiohead. Sam has to be thinking the same thing. Especially now that a fan put the music to the opening sequence.

Let’s go back and listen to 007 Radio *shameless plug* and daydream about what could have been.

Just In Case You Ever Wondered, “Who Was That Crazy Cop In Robin Schultz’ Sugar Video?”

His name is Nathan Barnatt, although you may know him as “Keith Apicary” because of this painfully awkward Kimberly Cole audition that made the rounds a few years ago.

The guy is hilarious. Prepare to cringe.

I hope his videos put a big borderline-weird smile on your face like the one on mine right now.

I’ll leave you with his victory dance. Enjoy!

Makes You Wonder If Taylor Swift Will Trademark “New Lady” too.

This is an interesting turn of events…remember how Calvin Harris was seen leaving a massage parlor not too long ago? Well now it appears Taylor is moonlighting as a masseuse in Dubai.

or at least that’s what this promo card would have you believe.

Although it’s not cool to use a celebrity image especially for a handsy service, I actually feel kinda sorry for Magic Touch…anyone oblivious enough to use a celebrity image for a business probably doesn’t realize the legal wrath of Taylor’s legal squad.

Something tells me this won’t have a happy ending.

HeyO. Get it? Massage parlor? Happy “ending”??….forget it :/
