New Week , Fresh Things

These past few days I have come across some new content that I found really dope so without further ado lets get to it.

First is Catastrophe a show on Amazon Prime about an American who travels to London for business then meets a local schoolteacher, they have a weekend fling resulting in a pregnancy and the show starts from there. The one aspect of the show that really makes it stand out from its peers is the title characters Sharon & Rob interact with one another. You may recognize Rob as Rob Delaney from twitter where he is a great follow.  Usually in sitcoms you see the characters reacting to situations to get laughs but with Catastrophe you seem them making each other laugh. Often using their humor with each other as a short hand for people who really convey they care about one another. They both know the other is funny so they try to best each other and its really charming to take in. The how the humor takes you in and relaxes you its easier for them to tackle deeper issues people have in relationships all while being sneakily emotional. Because of the humor they are able to delve into heavier subjects you would not find yourself normally laughing it. It really feels like a peak into two people’s lives without being over the top and that is a very welcome change of pace. The second season just came out, they are 30min each with only 6 episodes per season. So basically its shorter than a lot of movies these days. Who has time to sit down for a three hour movie anyways? No need film industry, no need. Yes I know its the season 2 trailer but it doesn’t give away much and it’s better cut than S1.

 

The second thing I want to get to is Action Bronson’s Mr. Wonderful. Let it run while you read the rest

It came out last year around this time but this bangs so hard with his distinct New York Flavor (Queens stand up!) and the production on it is flames with the likes of Mark Ronson, and 40 blessing some tracks. Just put the Ghostface comparisons out of your mind and listen to it. I first remember Action because of the  Rare Chandeliers album cover is what made me take notice

I then started watching him on Vice Eats a couple of years ago and he’s very entertaining on camera and really offers some professional insight into the food. He’s able to speak about so eloquently and passionately because he is a trained chef. When Vice Eats became a hit he then moved onto Munchies another channel to continue it and now finally he’s back with Vice with “F*CK That’s Delicious” which is the same premise but just longer and I’m not complaining because its a very fun and informative watch with that flair only Action can provide.

Here’s some more artwork I like

Adam Levine’s Wicked Cool Tattoo

(Huff Post) The Maroon 5 frontman revealed a newly finished back piece — which was six months in the making (!!!) — on Instagram Monday. The tattoo, done by Bryan Randolph of Spider Murphy’s Tattoo in California, shows a mythological scene with a mermaid in the center; she’s holding a skull in her hands as a ship rides over the waves behind her.

This piece of artwork took 6 months to complete. You can really see how that paid off with the intricate needlework displayed throughout ranging from the clouds above to the waves underneath. The best way to describe this is a mix between Pirates of the Caribbean , the Little Mermaid with Ed Hardy on top to really get it going. Speaking of the mermaid, why does she wings?

What the Fuck is going with her face? 6 months of work to have a cross eyed broad on your back is a tough pill to swallow. Another thing about the skull

Why is it bigger than the head of the mermaid?  Who’s head is that a giant? Maybe Poseidon? We’ll never know.  Come Levine, it took 6 months! This is terrible and doesn’t go together at all. He just needed to add some Chinese lettering to make it a hodgepodge of the most popular things people get. The more I look at the face the more it reminds me of this gem hhh.gif

It took 6 months and this was the best comparison I could find, I cant wrap my mind around that. I wonder if his wife made this face when she saw it because its the same one I made.

so painful cringe.gif

 

 

Meek Mill Responds to Drake’s Grammy Nomination for ‘Back to Back

Screen Shot 2015-12-08 at 3.56.06 PM.png

Can’t you just let it go by now Meek? Of course the more commercial rapper is a getting a push from you guessed it…corporations! Look at the timeline of events, you called him out , he made a diss track , you called it soft then Drake delivered ‘Back to Back’. As the hip hop community ate it up and waited for your response record to come out soon after but it didn’t. When it did finally come out it was underwhelming and did not have the level blows as ‘Back to Back’. You shouldn’t be mad that they are pushing Drake to get the grammy when all you had to do was put out a good record , it didn’t have to better but it just couldn’t be bad and thats what it was. Now here we are , just take your lumps,  get back in the studio and get back to putting out bangers like you are capable of doing. Because if you continue to chirp him like this he will only have a bigger stage to diss you again if he wins on the Grammys, which i hope is what happens.  Now cue the fucking music…

PS. Do you people still care about the Grammys? Because I don’t care who wins. I just watch it for the performances, especially the mashups of the older and new artists.
