the royal wedding: a matter of opinion?


so I've been seeing a lot of stuff about the Royal Wedding flooding the mainstream media lately. I mean, the people in the media seem to be going apeshit about April 29th, which isn't really that far away. which I get: it's a big deal. and I'm kind of excited about it. but I mean, like in a passive way. like I feel about the Superbowl. like I feel about most elections.

I mean, I'll watch it on TV, you know? probably at a bar. probably wearing a tiara. probably holding a poodle and calling it "precious" and weeping about the fact that I will probably never ever find love. anyway!

my feeling is though most Americans DO NOT care.
my feeling is though most Brits (that are not me) DO NOT care.

I have a few British friends so I've asked them. and the one said he didn't care and the other said that Battle of Los Angeles was a bad movie. and I was like, no shit.

SO DO YOU CARE OR WHAT

  2. I care, and I feel kind of guilty for caring because it seems like a shallow thing to care about. But Newsweek said it best: "In a world gone to hell--thank god, a wedding."

  5. the only reason why Americans care about the wedding is because a: all the kennedy's ie. your royals are dead or have gone insane, b: your celebrities and their marriages are just a bit shit.

3 New Lana Songs Come Out From Upcoming Album "Blue Banisters"

Not even that far off from "Chemtrails Over The Country Club" being released this past March, Lana Del Rey dropped three new singles off her upcoming project, "Blue Banisters." They include the title track, "Text Book," and "Wildflower Wildfire." All three songs seem to merge the worlds of "COCC" with "Norman Fucking Rockwell," specifically Lana's mouthful of a track "Hope is a Dangerous Thing for a Woman Like Me To Have But I Have It." They also seem uncharacteristically more confessional than most of Lana's catalog to date, specifically "Wildflower Wildfire," which alludes to a conflict with her mother. She even starts the track with "Here's the deal," readying to show more of her backstory than she ever has in her decade-plus-long career. The three songs are gorgeous - especially "Text Book," which has a haunting quality to it (she mentions "Black Lives Matter" i

Tusse releases French Language Version of "Voices"

In case you missed Eurovision this past weekend - and if you're an American, you likely did - there were some truly talented acts among those competing for this year's prestigious title. There were some pretty boring acts, and there were only a few of truly strange contestants this time around (bummer).  Sweden's act Tusse was pretty talented; his joyful and uplifting track "Voices" was actually one of the few that seemed rather memorable to me. Turns out he's releasing it in French - which makes sense, as Tusse is Kongo-Kinshasa born. Tusse is enormously popular in Sweden from what I can tell, having won both Melodifestivalen (Sweden's precursor to Eurovision) and Swedish Idol. He's a talented guy, and I'm sure we're just seeing the start of what is bound to be a long and prolific career.   (you might not be able to watch this outside of Sweden so, see below) The French version of "Voices" is available for streaming here .  Also, whi

"Round the Bend" - Zoon (Beck cover)

My favorite album of Beck's has long been "Sea Change," for approximately the 20 or so years it's been out. I would probably regard it as one of my personal favorite records, for its wistfulness and its beauty. When I heard about Zoon (aka Zoongide’ewin) - the musical project of Daniel Monkman - covering the "Sea Change" track "Round the Bend," I was somewhat skeptical simply because the album holds such a place in my heart. Now, prior to hearing about this cover, I wasn't so familiar with the work of Zoon. And now, I've got to say, in my best Owen Wilson - Wow.  Apparently we both hold the 2003 Beck album in high esteem. Said Daniel about "Sea Change," "After my first listen I was so moved and at the time I was going through a pretty bad break up and this album helped me process my depression. Throughout my time away from music I’d always have a copy beside me; it kept inspiring me that I could try any kind of music style. I
