The Song I Hate

So I don't read the AV Club all that often, but when I do...well it's something all right. I recently discovered the "Hatesong" feature by them, which is a fascinating little feature. So I wondered: "What song do I hate?" Hrmmmmmmmm. I mean I like a lot of music; evident from my posts obvs. 

I mean I doubt they will ask me anytime soon.

So here I go!
The Song I Hate By Britt

Ahem, "Picture" by Kid Rock and Sheryl Crow.

To me this is like hearing someone masturbate on broken glass. Or it's like listening to a dolphin get cleavered. Or a blind guinea pig scream at the top of her lungs (I hear that all the time, actually).

Don't get me wrong: I love Sheryl Crow. I think she's talented and makes some quality music, but that doesn't mean she's incapable of a giant turd every now and then. As for Kid Rock, to me he is the kind of person I sort of despise. He is a glorified redneck. Granted, that could be just an act. But he is more or less a "Good Old Boy." And I am basically the staunch opposite, so the math adds up. (Although I do admire his business savvy). 

But also the song sounds like a shitty guy's confession. A shitty guy who can't keep it in his pants. And really, I have no tolerance for infidelity or cheaters, so he should really jack off into a garbage disposal instead of turning his dilemma into another crappy country ballad.

Wank wank wank wank

Instrumental interlude

Anyway, another reason I dislike this song is because it gets stuck in my head. All the time. And I feel like I'm being waterboarded. So I guess Kid gets to have the last laugh. That cocky asshole.

Conclusion:  I rather listen to the "Teletubbies" soundtrack on repeat.

What's your least favorite song?

"Chang-E" - Emmy the Great (new album out 10/9)

Emmy the Great drops her new album tomorrow on Bella Union - the fastest album she says she's ever created.  "April /月音" was completed after a trip to to her birth city Hong Kong in 2017. In early 2018, Emmy the Great made "April /月音" in a two-week period in Brooklyn - which was delayed for release until now because of her maternity leave. After recording this album, Emmy moved (for good) back to Hong Kong.  Since her original trip to Hong Kong, things have become quite tumultuous there. Said Emmy. "I’ll never know why the city called me back, but I know what it gave me. In return, I want to give it this album. That Mid-Autumn, nobody could have predicted what was to come, neither the atomization that began with the anti-Extradition Law protests in June 2019, nor the struggle for democracy that continues now, through the Covid-19 pandemic. To witness your birth city in its greatest moment of need is a powerful, humbling event, and I know I watched Hong Kong

Give JR a Break

Recently, I've been reading some sites that have criticized James Roday, the lead actor on the USA show PSYCH for an apparent weight gain. But you know what? Who gives a flying fizzle stick if James Roday is slightly larger than he was 4 years ago. Apparently, it wasn't enough to scare away his current girlfriend/ co-star Maggie Lawson. (Who is one hell of a Catch!) And NO they are not engaged. That seems to be nothing more than a rumor, but there is a very high chance of it happening in the near future. Anyway, as long as PSYCH continues to entertain I don't mind about James Roday's waist. He, and Dule Hill, and Corbin Bernson too, can eat all the fried broccoli they want. The last episode of PSYCH wasn't so smashing, but I don't blame it on dietary issues. QATFYG: Are you keeping up with Psych? And who is hotter, James Roday or Maggie Lawson? (Trick Question but idk why) PS: If you have heard any more news on Roday and Lawson becoming Roday-Lawso

"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
