Lorde supplied one of the performances of the night for me. The other is this, perhaps not so surprisingly. It was always a glorious live song. Kim’s dancing and singing and enthusiasm is intoxicating. It’s totally unprofessional the way she slips over like Robert Pollard, but this lack of professionalism is why it’s such an enthralling, […]
Please, no more words. Just incredible. Ah, never mind. Maybe it might be interesting to reproduce some of the commentary on Facebook around a link to this post. Many people seem to take issue with my taste here. Everett True Steve Gullick, you heard this? 8 hrs · Like Steve Five ”Ever get the feeling you’ve been cheated?” – […]
Alone, alone, alone. Every day, when I’m walking down the street to downtown, or down the campus, I see them everywhere – the girls with the hose, the flimsy skirts, the shades and the vacant looks, laughing at their own idiocy, not feeling or seeing anything outside of their own little bubble (or cell phone) […]

Like when this rabid bloke from Dog Chocolate cries that he wants to give birth. “I know it will hurt, and I know it will bleed / but I really, really, really, really, really wanna breed”. […]
First, to be perfectly clear – before you go a-whinin’ that you’ve heard this one before – BADBADNOTGOOD changed the game. They stormed the crumbling ramparts of jazz fusion and elevated urban beats to unprecedented heights. When they jam, it ain’t smug baroque showboating. It’s now or never. Kick ass and run like hell. Keep […]
“It’s quite a natural medium for people, radio, I think” A London singer/songwriter that I adore, Paul Hawkins, wrote this memoir, suggesting that writers of any kind should compose songs and, when possible, perform them to an audience.
