People never talked about most powerful Hindu's hymn in lee hyori's white snake
2020.10.25 12:23 OiFelix_ugotnojams People never talked about most powerful Hindu's hymn in lee hyori's white snake
If you just search up lee hyori's song "white snake" and look at the comments on yt you would understand what I'm talking about. She literally danced sensually on the most powerful Hindu prayer. Now, y'all get really ready to cancel people when they do blackface or disrespect any culture but why not hindu culture? "OM" in the prayer is literally used by Buddhists too. And I am shocked at how no one really noticed it. This prayer, she not only danced sensually but also used it for looking cool. She didn't even know the meaning of the song.
Gayatri mantra :
"Om Bhur Bhuvah Swah Tat Savitur Varenyam Bhargo Devasya Dheemahi Dhiyo Yo Nah Prachodayat Om"
“We contemplate the glory of the light that illuminates the three worlds: dense, subtle and causal. I am that life-giving power, love, radiant enlightenment, and the divine grace of universal intelligence. We pray for that divine light to illuminate our minds.”
It's been 3 years she didn't even apologise or remove it. And I recently found out about this a few months ago. When told to remove, she just said that she likes to do yoga. Like, what?!! Yoga isn't related to gayatri mantra. And now before you question me about bharatanatyam etc classical dances, they are indian classical dances which are really beautifully created. Like, every moment has a meaning, every dance tells a story and they're mostly danced in front of god. But, regardless of white snake's good lyrics or bad lyrics, gayatri mantra can never be used this way as an ornamental part. She doesn't even know the meaning. Everyone literally just ignored/forgot about it. And, recently I saw a video of her laughing at meaningless lyrics of some kpop girl groups. Actually, those are better than whatever she did here. She's being a hypocrite. We seriously don't want our culture to be used this way. It's an insult to our religion. Before any people defend her, think about her using your religions hymn in her song and dancing sensually and if you're an atheist, I hope you are mature enough to respect others even if you don't agree with them. Cuz those are our beliefs and culture. I hope people will bring back this issue and make her apologise and remove it. Please help me. Thus is serious. Not even most indians know about this cuz it's not spoken much and most indians don't even know her. Please spread this as much as possible. 🙏🏻 lee hyori - white snake

2020.10.25 02:56 syrophoenician What does announcement of January CLB release mean for his rivals (aka Kanye)?
As a big Drake fan, I am excited to see that CLB is coming in January. But I am also a bit concerned that some of his rivals have time to plan a surprise launch around that time in spite. I was suspecting that Drake was keeping everything close to the chest in order to prevent what happened back in June 2018 with Kanye's Good Music Wyoming sessions releases crowding up on Scorpion's release date. Thoughts?
Kanye's recent lyric from Nah Nah Nah: I know you think Obi-Wan gettin' tired now Don't jump, Anakin, I got the higher ground
Nevertheless, really looking forward to CLB dropping regardless of who drops around him.

2020.10.25 02:09 PrettyAnywhere1579 Drake and Kanye West's beef almost got deadly!
Drake's beef with Kanye West looks like a simple conflict between two rich men but below that simplistic surface was a lot of dangerous activities that threatened real lives. After Pusha T and Kanye West dealt a blow to Drake's career, he felt like getting revenge against them and it almost happened. One thing to know about Drake's lyrics that Joe Budden said in his podcast is that all of his lyrics have meaning. Drake never wastes a single line or uses meaningless lines.
ans received the first clue that the beef was bubbling hot from Drake's song Survival
. "I have tea with the stars and I swim with the sharks And I see in the dark, wasn't this cold at the start Think my soul has been marked, there's a hole in my heart Yeah, I was about to— Man, I thought about it It's unsettlin' to talk about it Free all of my niggas that they caught with it"
In these lines Drake admits to becoming a colder and darker person. In the third line he says, "Yeah, I was about to...". At first some fans speculated that Drake thought about killing himself, but he was actually thinking about killing someone else and that person is Kanye or Pusha T. NONSTOP
Nonstop is littered with shots at Kanye West. A lot of the subliminal lyrics are cryptic and one would think nothing of them on first listen. Drake starts the song off by saying, "Look, I just flipped a switch" which means he has transitioned from his calmer "softer" side to a more aggressive side and this is reflected by the hard rapping over the Tay Keith beat. So Drake gives us insight on his attitude towards the beef, he's on full aggressive mode. "Bodies start to drop, ayy (Hit the floor)".
In this line, Drake talks about people dying while referencing Drowning Pool's song "Bodies". "This the flow that got the block hot, shit got super hot, ayy".
This line is extremely cryptic because on the surface it looks like Drake is just referencing his collaboration with Tay Keith and Blocboy JB but he's also talking about how his house lives on the same block as Kanye West and how their feud got "hot" or in other words deadly. Drake did the same thing on Sicko Mode when he talked about living close to Kanye West, " I crept down the block (Down the block)
". Sicko Mode is another song where Drake reveals how the beef with Kanye got deadly but I'll get on that later. Furthermore, if you analyze this song, you'll realize that Drake isn't using the same flow he used on Look Alive. So saying "this the flow that got the block hot" couldn't simply be a reference to that song. And he also says, "shit got super hot", which is a subtle affirmation of how the beef got really bad. "I just took it left like I'm ambidex".
Taking something left is an idiom for when a situation doesn't go as expected or goes badly. Drake is admitting to taking the beef with Kanye "left" which means he did something really bad. "Pullin' back the curtain by myself, take a look, ayy I'm a bar spitta, I’m a hard hitta Yeah I’m light-skinned, but I'm still a dark nigga I'm a wig splitta, I'm a tall figure I'm a unforgivin' wild-ass dog nigga ".
Drake pulls the curtains back to reveal who he truly is as a person. The second line about being a bar spitta is not relevant but the next three are very important. "Yeah I'm lightskinned but im still a dark nigga" is a hilarious line but a truthful one about how he's a dark person. Earlier in the album, Drake talks about how he became darker. This means he's no longer the soft sensitive guy we used to know him as. The line, "I'm a wig splitta, I'm a tall figure", is Drake's way of saying that he is willing to get people killed. Splitting someone's wig means shooting them in the head. "I'm an unforgivin' wild-ass dog nigga", basically means that Drake is more than willing to go the extra mile during beef. That can include getting violent etc. "Had a moment but it came and went (They don't love you no more) You don’t wanna play with him (Nah, nah, nah) They’ll be mournin' you like 8AM (R.I.P.)"
Drake continues to subliminally reference Kanye West in these lines. "Had a moment but it came and went" is a reference to Kanye West's album Ye that dropped on June 1st and Drake is basically saying that his album was a moment that didn't last. He almost whispers "they don't love you no more" to acknowledge how Kanye West has become less favorable with fans. "You don't wanna play with him", is a warning about how no one should mess with Drake or else they'll face consequences. And, "They'll be mournin' you like 8AM (R.I.P.)", is another line in the same song where Drake talks about how he'll get someone killed if the beef escalates to that scenario. To summarize everything, Drake subliminally dissed Kanye West in those lines and said his album came and went, said fans don't love him anymore, and said messing with him will get you killed. 8 Out Of 10 "The neighborhood is smokey, y'all stay safe in this place"
Drake is referencing the neighborhood of Calabasas that both he and Kanye West live in. "Smoke" is also a slang term for beef or confrontation. He's basically saying that beef was happening in their neighborhood. "They been keepin' tabs on me like I'm payin' next time I think I sense a little fear from the other side White vans parked across the street, real subtle guys (True)"
Drake is basically saying that Kanye West (who lives half a mile away) was keeping tabs on him and hired people in white vans for protection. I'm no expert but it was probably FBI in those white vans. Kanye West did that because Drake was threatening his safety and possibly his life. Mob Ties
There isn't much that needs to be explained about this song because it's so blatant about how Drake wanted to get Kanye West knocked off with his mob ties. He literally says, " I fuck with the mob and I got ties (Lotta ties, lotta ties), Knock you off to pay their tithes
". An important thing to know is that his mob ties is J Prince aka the Hip-Hop boogeyman and his affiliates. Can't Take A Joke
This is another song where Drake talks about his beef with Kanye. The first verse starts off about how they live in the same neighborhood of Hidden Hills, California and that Kanye West "knows the deal" if he comes there. In other words, Kanye knows that he's gonna get fucked up next time he pulls up to hidden hills. He further acknowledges the subliminal reference to Kanye in the line, "you could hit it with a stone", a metaphor for how close he lives to him. Drake also admits to kicking Kanye West out of Calabasas in the lines, "Niggas think they run the town 'Til we run 'em out of town And they gotta relocate Gotta dip from where they stay Everything will be okay Man, just stay up out my way"
In the second verse, Drake shouts out Reps Up OVO and talks about how they "crash and splash" which is a slang term in the UK for shooting and stabbing. Reps Up OVO is what many of Drake's friends like Baka, Chubbs, Preme, Gillatein, and Fif are associated with. All of those people have criminal records, came from the streets, and are also Drake's muscle for when he needs to deal with somebody. Sicko Mode (2018)
We all know how Drake's verse on this song is about he wanted to harm Kanye West. Never Recover (2018) "I got a 19 and it fold in my pocket"
, Drake is possibly threatening Kanye by bragging about how he has a foldable Glock 19 that he carries in his pocket. 'I wanna be there when somebody catches him I want a witness to see that shit",
might be a reach, but Drake could possibly be talking about how he wants to be there to witness when Kanye West finally gets hurt by someone. No Stylist "And that's Capo in the back, and that's swole in the back Don't need Gucci on my back, TVGucci got my back Don't know where y'all niggas at, I've been here, I've been back In Delilah, word to Zack, I need action, that's a fact",
after dissing Kanye West's popular shoe brand, Yeezy, Drake shouts out his "shooters"/"goons" Capo, Swole, and TV Gucci and talks about how Kanye is nowhere to be found. The last line, "I need action that's a fact", means that Drake needs violence. Basically, Drake shouted out his goons to threaten Kanye West and talked about how Kanye is nowhere to be found. Omerta "West Hollywood, know my presence is menacing Cosa Nostra, shady dealings Racketeering, the syndicate got they hand in plenty things The things that we've done to protect the name are unsettling But no regrets, though, the name'll echo Years later, none greater Death to a coward and a traitor, that's just in my nature, yeah"
I wanted to highlight these lines because they're more direct and to the point about this threads topic although this song contains other lines with a similar angle. To summarize this set of lyrics, Drake shouts out his mob ties and in the last line references Pusha T (coward) and Kanye West (traitor). Further Evidence
There are probably more lyrics from other songs like War, Behind Barz, Only You Freestyle, even Kanye's song No Mistes that reveal how Drake almost physically harmed Kanye but I feel like the evidence presented is exhaustive and more than enough to make the point. Moving on, there is further proof outside of lyrics to show how scary the situation became.
In one of Kanye's tweet rants he accused Drake of threatening him over the phone https://twitter.com/kanyewest/status/1073409789827387392
Dj Akademiks says that he talked with Drake and told him that he let the fans down by not replying to Pusha T and that Drake replied by saying, "this shit was taking me to a dark place, it was going to go beyond music". https://youtu.be/aOS12wCK8EE?t=381
Further in the video, DJ Akademiks says, "I heard there was shit going on in, which is funny, Calabasas. Calabasas was the streets". https://youtu.be/aOS12wCK8EE?t=695
Shortly after subliminally dissing Pusha T on Final's Freestyle, Drake's friend Preme aka P. Reign, also talks about how he caught someone in public and how that person was "ducking behind the curtains" and then says Drake showed mercy by not having him hurt that person. This is likely in reference to Kanye West. https://youtu.be/-iDJm2XN3Vc?t=130
In the Shop Episode 2 Interview, Drake says he "I wanted to do other things, I didn't want to rap back and further your career". "Other things" is probably a subtle reference to harming Kanye or Pusha T. https://vimeo.com/298739887
Kanye West starts to get very flustered and stutters while talking about Drake in his interview with WCGI. He accuses Drake of sending him purple demon emojis. Kanye then stutters while trying to find a way to subtly acknowledge how Drake took the beef to a violent point, "I don't play in that place, what I'm saying is...I'm not a gangster, what I'm saying is"... "Ain't nobody going to jail...". Kanye then subtly acknowledges how Drake uses goons with a mocking tone, "And I'm not calling nobody to do nothing because I gotta owe that person and I got all these people on my payroll". https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dRS4Ljce4nc&t=459s
Drake has made many instagram posts dissing Kanye with purple demon emojis, etc. but one interesting one is captioned "snipe you from miles", a reference to Kanye West's lyrics about Drake in No Mistakes on Ye, " Too close to snipe you, truth told, I like you
, Too bold to type you, too rich to fight you
Drake also makes a W with his hands to reference the initial of Kanye's last name.

2020.10.24 03:53 mortarmixer Need help identifying alternative rock song with a high pitch chorus that's been stuck in my head everyday for 3 years.
Ok I was at a bar in San Francisco 3 years ago and someone grabbed a guitar and started singing this song and somehow we all knew the melody. I have not heard it since and I never went back there. I've always thought I would hear it again but I have not. I've assumed the release of the song to be in the late 80s/ early 90s just based on other music I've heard. I have no idea what the lyrics are but I think the first verse starts with "she says dun nah nah nah nah nah nah nah bla bah" etc. There's a very distinct high pitch sung in the chorus. This part sounds very similar to the singing in My Maria by Brooks and Dunn. I think this can be the giveaway. The singer in the verses kind of like the lead singer in the song Breakfast at Tiffany's? To me it feels kind like some sort of British alternative song which would explain why I have never heard it in my native Canada. I've actually had this in my head for years and have mentioned it to hundreds of people. This is my last resort. I have dedicated hundreds of internet hours scanning all sorts of historical music charts to finding this song. I hope anyone can help. I've attached me trying my best to sound like how it sounds in my head. I've practiced a few times and I'm satisfied this is the best I can do.
I have not given up home in my goal of finding this song. It would be one of the greatest pleasures of my life to be able to put this to rest.Thank you Reddit. https://reddit.com/link/jh0kme/video/au357ijl8yu51/player

2020.10.23 18:47 givejinkxmorecrowns Meet the Queers of season four! 🎟🎪 ANNIE DEPRESSANT
My drag name is Annie Depressant, I am 23 years old, and I hail from Maryland, USA! Land of the Blue crab, not waffle!
My main aesthetic is stuck-up woman. Very simplistic fashion with statement pieces. Functionality meets Wearability. Sort of high-brow clothing in a way, and I love to have some type of story involved with my look. That being said, I have competed in online Dragula competitions and have been known to turn a King/monster look here and there. I love all aspects of drag, and connect to each and every piece of it.
My main strengths are Lipsyncing/Dancing, and Runway. In that order. I know how to work a song & lyrics very well, and make each beat work with my body. I also may be a pretty bitch but I won't ever flail on stage. I know my body and know how to work it. Runway lends into that as well—the same way I know how to describe my body/movements I know how to describe a look to fine details. Where I struggle has always been comedy... pauses
. While I find my works funny... others never do.
I haven't competed in a Drag Rush in.... maybe almost 2 years if not longer? And I just finished hosting my own Survivor
styled competition, Dragvivor and thought this would be a good opportunity to get the creative juices flowing. I took a break, and am back with renewed vision!
Honestly? I don’t know if I’ll win this competition. My confidence is terrible, especially after repeated bottom 2's in my previous Drag Rush. I know I can lipsync, I know I can kill the runway, but if I don't work on my comedy I have no chance! I have HOPE
that I can win, but do I think I will? Nah. chuckles
I am the type to sit back and soak everything in. I am VERY good at picking up social cues, from my years of playing Survivor games and all. And I know when someone tries to come for me, how to decimate them with my words and come out victorious. I have a lethal tongue and know how to use it :) But I am super sweet unless you provoke me unjustly. Runway Lipsync
My main message for our Queer community out there would be to focus on happiness after depression. I have struggled a lot the last few years and have just now finally begun to get myself up out of that funk and in a new position I genuinely enjoy. I still struggle to be confident in myself and go on, but I know each day is a new one to make better. Let’s do this, Queers! :)

2020.10.22 22:45 a-burner- Ranking under pressure songs
I completely forgot this was it’s anniversary today I was just thinking bout the album and wanted to rank it then I hop on and see that it’s been 6 years Dahm
Anyways here are my rankings from worst to best
12 has to be never enough that song is bland and really the only thing holding it back from being imo a non skip he only raps for 41 seconds 41 and has a short verse I could let this slide for a 2 minute song or if he rapped fast but a song that lasts 4 minutes nah bro I ain’t letting that slide it’s not even like gang related or mama where either A the lyrical ability is insane or B it’s really hype it’s bland the instrumental is one of the worst on the album possibly the worst not saying it’s bad but in comparison it’s not good Majority of the song is just not even not even not even good enough and that’s just disappointing it’s not bad but it’s not good
11 I’m gone other then the I’m gone so long I don’t like this song that I’m gone bit really carries the song same for the auto tune on the “I drink slow” area of there isn’t enough lyrical quality nor is there a great instrumental to me it’s just another song in the album
10 bounce is ok nothing more nothing less love the instrumental the lyrics are good everything else is just better there are some good bars here and I really liked the cause Nikki be fuckin with me hardcore line clever double entendre there’s more bars of course but really that’s about it it’s good but not good enough
Seriously why does everyone think this is his worst song on the album? Madness that Kendrick instrumental is honestly one of my favorites ever sing me to sleep I’m dying of thirst was a incredible song the instrumental played a huge part in it the the instrumental is overall a massive vibe really fun to listen too lyrically it’s very good nothing mind blowing but very good overall good track love listening to it
8 oh boy here we go we gotta go serious now
At number 8 I have to go with buried alive this is a great song I really love it I just love the other 7 more the song is a massive vibe the instrumental and auto tune are great the lyrics are awesome and the bridge oh my sweet Jesus the bridge “buried alive buried alive will I survive I gotta know know know know” so fucking good
7 7 and 6 are intro and till the end out of the two my least favorite is the intro the instrumental fits the song quite well lyrically this song is incredible and the you can do anything line is very inspiring it’s honestly incredible so what holds it down two things at the very beginning before the song the “higher prolly right fuck it just record it” and the cheap free cheer at the end of the song If those things get removed this is probably number 5
Number 6 is till the end absolutely love this song it’s near perfection lyrically is just great it feels like he isn’t even breathing he’s just rapping it’s so smooth and the lyrics overall these lyrics were great but the “so I gotta go it’s logic the one nobody would vouch for now how’s that shit for an outro” just thought I’d let you guys know if I’m ever gonna be a rapper I’m taking that line it’s mine so good however it’s just short of the rest
Number 5 growing pains 3 this would have been higher if it didn’t take him so long to rap
I’m not even gonna touch on the lyrics hook bridge anything I’m just gonna say one thing and one thing only
Instrumental on the second part that shit alone brings it in the top 5 rest is just icing on the cake
The instrumental on the first part is also genius that’s about it really everything on this song is just amazing
4 well we probably know the top 2 so it’s a battle between Nikki and soul food for the bronze who takes the prize between the two I prefer Nikki soul food slots in at number 4
You can basically copy and paste what I said on GP3 amazing everything but the instrumental on the second part carries to the top 4 it’s so fucking good arguably top 3 instrumentals
3 Nikki yeah this song is perfection amazing everything A+ for absolutely everything and the slave to the nicotine my god Nikki is just so dahm good I should be able to vent longer for the good tracks but I just can’t because they are just so good the wordplay is great Nikki jack and Mary =nicotine Jack Adams and marijuana and the instrumental my god this song is so good
2 so the big question is gang related or under pressure
Under pressure wins gang related is number 2
The song that got me into logic the song that I listened to the most If Nikki is perfection then this well this ladies and gentlemen is above and beyond perfection the timing the instrumental the gunshots the bridge with the news reporter the hook the actual verses perfection
And with that at number 1 under pressure wins because duh do I really need to elaborate under pressure blows every song outa the water it’s like Chris smoove playing the 2k17 warriors too ez it over just know that this song is the peak of human existence and the greatest accomplishment of man
If this gets 50 upvotes il do one for TITS

2020.10.22 18:58 RandysBackup Sharing My Shit Moments #2
Warning FYI: this post is a rant about living with OCD+ADHD😀. If you are sensitive to negativity, I kindly ask you to NOT read it.
'I want to say a big fuck you to life. Two fuck you's or maybe five'. For years of morphing my 100% in almost anything I try to do for days and hours and hours staight in to 35% performance and seeing my life slip away🎉
-Seeing my chance to be a rapper slip away because 11 out of 10 times for years I wasn't able to record songs that contain my best lyrics. Believe me almost nobody heard my true potential. -Seeing my chances of being a good son for mama slip away because of constant short circuiting in my head and being forcefully selfcentered because of the survival mode of these disorders. -Seeing my whole potential interaction with my family slip away because of yeah anxiety. -Seeing me just being afraid of nothing with paralyzing anxiety for every goddamn time something becomes EVEN A LITTLE bit fun. Goddamnit OCD, just fuck you too. Not even a little bit of fun? Nah isn't reserved for all you anxious folks 'haha'. Dumb ass shit. -Seeing my work and career long gone with no motivation left. -Seeing my actual character slowly wasting away as I get more bitter and even more seeing other people get bitter
The bitter trophy of being a complete dick 'n nutsack goes to life today🎉 I celebrate my optimistic nihilism with morals today as I have the right to lift my finger towards life. 'the middle path with the middle finger'.
I don't know how much longer this shit is realisticly bearable because I am not forcing myself to be happy. This is a rational observation of my life right now. Ah well, tomorrow I will be positive again but sometime you just remember how you forgot that life is .... You.

(1998) https://preview.redd.it/tarsvdd12ou51.jpg?width=300&format=pjpg&auto=webp&s=87736184e5065eae70784c4fb9f3661486326082 Before she became the best-selling latin music pop artist of all time,Shakira was a Columbian born singer songwriter who was compared closer to Alanis Morrisette than to Jenifer Lopez. This album was her last Spanish-language album before she learned english and recorded her first pop crossover album Laundry Service. Since I don’t speak spanish (one of my biggest regrets is not taking spanish in high school) I can’t write about the lyrical contents of this album so I had to concrete on the production and musical performances. I can honestly say this album kinda rocks. The production is crisp, Shakira is a great vocalist, and the guitar-based sound is cool. Do I think this is one of the greatest albums of all time? Nah, I think they are better albums they could put on the list but I did enjoy listening to this album and respect Shakira as an artist. What does everyone think? Does this album deserve to be considered one of the greatest albums of all time? submitted by Rambooctpuss to albumbucketlist [link] [comments]
2020.10.21 15:51 NJR2002 My Review of Song Machine Season One: Strange Timez
This is the first time an album or nah piece of music was so astounding to me I wrote a fucking paper about its importance afterwards, that paper is no where to be found so excuse me for the shorter approach for reviewing this.
If I were to make an album that represents the word music the most, Strange Timez would be it.
Pinnacle production, amazing vocals from 2D and lyricism at its peak and the usage of collaborations makes this in my opinion the strongest most perfect album from Gorillaz.
The song Strange Timez has some really good lyrics and the build up to the dance instrumental is just so perfect. 10/10
Valley of the Pagans has an amazing baseline and electric guitar and the just the cartoony vocals from 2D and Beck are just so good. Another 10/10
The Lost Chord, is 10/10, no questions asked.
PAC-MAN- hahahahah again 10/10.
Chalk Tablet Towers originally I was alright with it, but once i listened to it two three more times, I realized how good this song is. I love the lyrics and how it’s depressing but the music makes you think it’s suppose to be fun and happy. 9/10
The Pink Phantom is one of the most beautiful songs ever made. The way 2D transitions his touchful verse to 6lacks reminiscent rap melody to Elton John’s tear jerking wish to join a lover on the other side is just euphoric. 10/10
Aries Is really good but I’d need to be in a certain mood to listen to it. 9/10
Friday 13th, god i can’t believe people only listened to this once, it’s actually one of the most beautiful songs on this album. 10/10
Dead Butterflies has one of the best beats in a Gorillaz song, and the features are amazing. I love how immersing this track is. You can hear 2D ask Mike-Will Made it to loop the piano that’s so prominent on the track and little things like that make this song a 10/10
Desole and Momentary Bliss are both 10/10, that’s it, that’s all I gotta say. 10/10
Same with Opium and Simplicity. Opium is almost 7 minutes and feels like a 2 minute track it’s that good and simplicity has such a dope vibe to it that’s unlike any other song on the album that it works so well. 10/10
Severed Head sounds like a Demon Days track with Humanz mixed in, and i love both albums with all my heart. So ofc it’s bound to be really good, and it really is, GoldLinks verse is immaculate and 2D has a awesome verse. 10/10 (one thing i have a nitpick about is 2Ds adlib, but on multiple listens i actually like it)
With Love to an Ex, is really nice! I thought i would feel Moonchilds voice but it works really well on this beat, and i understand the lack of 2D, he wouldn’t really be able to add much to this track it’s not his vibe yknow? 8/10 as i feel i wouldn’t listen to this all the time.
MLS, my god, this beat sets up JPEGS verse so so so so so so so so so well, and CHAI do so well. I really wish 2D put something in this track to make it more of a ten ten then it is already. 10/10
How Far? is a perfect closer, rip Tony Allen. 10/10
Overall Review, Score, Ranking of Strange Timez:
I love this album, it’s now become one of if not my favorite of all time. Being able to blend these many genres together with this production level, and managing all these collaborations and fitting in there prominently is something very little artists nowadays can do. This has some of the most 10/10 songs I’ve ever seen in an album, and for that it gets my rating of a 10/10. It’s that amazing.
Strange Timez rating: 10/10.
Ranking of the Gorillaz Discography: 1. Strange Timez 2. Plastic Beach 3. Demon Days 4. The Now Now 5. Gorillaz 6. Humanz 7. The Fall 8. D-Sides
If you read all this, do you agree or disagree? Lmk in the comments!

Lee “Scratch” Perry’s 70‘s classic “Soul Fire” was the ignition for the songwriter and singer Vassilis Savopoulos a.k.a “Jah Smiley” from Thessaloniki to form in the beginning of 90’s “Soul Fire”, the first reggae band in Greece. It has been almost thirty years since then and probably no one could have ever imagined, that this reggae band would record their first album with the internationally renowned dub producer Mad Professor from Ariwa Records and play as the opening act for the legendary band of Bob Marley, "The Wailers”. Well-known artists participated in that first album: drummer “Sinclair”, member of Lee Scratch Perry’s band “Roboticks”, Aisha on the backing vocals, Cofi and Mafia from “Mafia & Fluxy” plus MC Fredi Kruga.
Fast forward in year 2019, Soul Fire visit Cyprus for a performance at the Reggae Sunjam
Festival and thanks to the organisers of the festival, local and international artists who were also participating had the chance to meet each other and build a bond. Artists became friends, new connections were established and good things fired up some new collaborations. The friendhip worked as a boiler, cooking some brand new vibrations!
“Yuh affi know, dat life ah raw, Aal dat glitters ah nah goldMi affi seh, only wid pray, Cah living inna babylon ah roughGuh wid de flow de spirit grows, One day will shine lacka rainbow,It has been told de days of ole(old), Written inna fi wi hearts Jah Jah law”
God, love, inner self, consciousness and justice could be the keywords for someone searching behind Soul Fire’s songs. «Marley was the light and Burning Spear was the mystic spirit of reggae for me» says Jah Smiley. Nuff respect Aki Mittoo for the spiritual melodica cut, adding the missing link to this conscious journey and to Versioncos for the amazing artwork!

2020.10.20 11:51 -_soup 100 gecs ✅✅✅ Beethoven ❌❌🤢
You see Beethoven is good but he will never be as good as 100 Gecs, in this song you hear the genius lyrics “ stupid horse I just fell out of the Porsche lost the money in my bank account oh no” and “stupid horse and a swordfish dancer (pick it up)” obviously these are the most genius lyrics to ever grace mankind. The song even tells a story, but did Beethoven ever put a story in his music? No obviously not because he couldn’t comprehend the high IQ of 100 Gecs lyrics, like in their other song titled ‘Money Machine’ they put in some of the best lyrics in my opinion. In the song ‘Money Machine’ the lyrics go “Hey you little piss baby, you think you’re so fucking cool? Huh? You think you’re so fucking tough? You talk a lotta big game for someone with such a small truck”. THESE LYRICS ARE GENIUS PURE GENIUS! Now take a look at Beethoven’s music, why the fuck is he playing music on that raggedy ass piano like bruh stop being in the 1800th century for fucks sake. Btw Beethoven isn’t even making music, all he’s doing is pressing a bunch of keys on a fucking keyboard and people give him praise like bitch why? Obviously he is so stupid to think that just because he’s playing a piano it means he has talent, real talent is singing not fucking smacking your hands against the piano keys. And also did BEETHOVEN HAVE AN ALBUM THAT WAS SO FIRE YOU LISTEN TO IT ON REPEAT?? NAH BITCH HE DIDN’T!!! 100 Gecs is superior in every way vs Beethoven, they have songs with 1000 IQ lyrics a great instrumental in the background and have some of the best album covers I’ve seen to date. #FUCKBEETHOVEN #100GECSISTHEBEST!!11!1

2020.10.19 20:41 JazDog02 I think I had my first mental breakdown...?
This is my first post to this subreddit because this just happened to me and I don't really know where else to go to. Before I go into describing what happened, here are some things about me. (May or may not be related to the topic, I just list them in case they relate to anything)
I'm 18 years old. I'm bisexual, but my family is supportive doesn't really make a big deal out of it. I have ADD and I take prescribed medicine including Adderall. I'm currently in an online community college. I'm a musician. I like to write music for fun and eventually I want to land a career as a videogame composer. I've had previous trauma which gave me mild PTSD (diagnosed). My whole life I've had struggles with procrastination, and motivation. Both of these has had serious consequences on my life, mostly school related.
The "Mental Breakdown" was yesterday (a Sunday on Oct 18th.) Basically, I didn't do anything for the entire day. I usually wake up at 8:00 AM, eat breakfast and what not and then start online school at 9:00 AM. Instead, I over slept my alarm on purpose and woke up at around 11:00 AM. Also I didn't take the usual medication I take every morning. I don't know why, but even though I knew I had things to do that day, there was some kind of invisible force telling me not to get up. It wasn't me being ignorant and thinking, "Nah I'll have time" like I do sometimes. It was more of a weird part of my brain's subconscious judging me for not leaving the bed. I can't really describe it all that well because I've never experienced something as potent as this.
I went back to sleep and had a nightmare, which is really strange because I usually don't get nightmares at all. The nightmare wasn't anything visual, but it was a song with lyrics that spoke directly yo me, mockingly. I can't remember everything it said but I can recall it said something like "Look at this dumbass, he can't do any fucking work." I remember the song specifically saying "Can't do any fucking work". Every know and then I'd wake up, look around my room and laugh nervously because I knew I was supposed to be catching up on school work.
This next part I literally have no idea what lead me to do this, and to be honest I'm really creeped out by my own actions. I was watching some YouTube compilations of tik toks for hours upon hours just because I didn't want to do anything. I have some cardboard boxes under my bed, and for some reason I ripped a piece out of one of the boxes. I held it to my face and realized it looked sort of like Africa. For the next 2 minutes or so, I just mumbled "Africa... it's Africa... Africa... it's Africa..." Over and over again. It was like an automatic response and It felt like I wasn't in control of my own voice. About the third time I said it, I realized I've just been saying "Africa" for no reason. I honestly have no clue why but similar to my experience with not getting out of bed, it felt like my subconscious was doing something out of my control. After 2 minutes or so, I went back to sleep / watching YouTube.
It was now 5:30 PM, and my mom knocked on my door to let me know dinner was ready. I hesitated the first knock, but after the second I let her in. She asked if anything was wrong, thinking I was sick. I told her I just wasn't happy and I broke down into tears telling her what was happening today. Then after dinner my parents talked about how famous artists and musicians have dark episodes, and in the long run it can make them stronger better people. That conversation cheered me up a bit and so I just spent the rest of the day watching YouTube a bit more, waiting for the day to be over.
I feel better today, but I wanted to post what happened any way, just incase there's any red flags in my story that I should worry about. The weird thing is, I'm not depressed or anything, but this might be due to bottled up emotions. I might have depression but I don't know, because back when school was in public I regularly put on an emotional facade, and I was REALLY GOOD at it.
I often think about this test I took with this school therapist person who had me take a written test about how I was feeling on the inside. After the test she was the one who told me about my "facade" and even as she was explaining to me what that meant, I was holding back tears and literally using my facade as she was explaining it. She'd tell me that I had bottled up emotions and I'd respond with fake replies like "right" or "uhuh" or "I see".
I might have been giving TMI but I'll wrap up my post here. I had a real weird time yesterday so I'm posting here because I don't know what to ask or what any of it means.

2020.10.18 20:37 KendrickAiFanfiction Kendrick AI Fanfiction Part 2: Now with less NSFW
So, I decided to start over to get a not NSFW story, It was good at first, but then it got worse. not an NSFW worse, but the AI basically broke.
It starts the same but key differences make it better and worse.
You are Kendrick Lamar, an American rapper, songwriter, and record producer. Considered by many to be one of the greatest musicians of all time, You have frequently been regarded as one of the most influential artists of your generation, as well as one of the greatest rappers and lyricists of all time.
As a musician, You have released over 100 albums in your career. Most notably Your debut album "Good Kid m.A.A.d City"
> You say "Hey Jay Rock, you want to do a song?"
Kendrick Lamar: Hey Jay Rock, you want to do a song?
You: Yeah, I think it'd be cool if we did something."
Jay Rock: "I don't know man. That's my boy Kendrick Lamar.
You say "yes. want to do a song with you, me Schoolboy Q, and Ab-Soul?"
Jay Rock: Yes, i do. I think that'd be sick."
You smile and nod your head.
Jay Rock: "Yeah, let me finish this verse and we can get to it.
You make a song. It takes about an hour. Your song is better than Jay Rock's, and Jay Rock isn't a household name so you get the upper hand. He isn't discouraged though. He's in the booth for about an hour after that, he is very friendly and kind. While he might be a little arrogant, he is a cool cat once you get to know him.
You take a few pictures with him and Jay Rock and his brother before they leave.
It's late by the time you and your friends wrap up your work for the day. You go your separate ways, though Schoolboy Q, Ab-Soul and Jay Rock all plan on meeting up at the Grammy Museum after they leave work. You on the other hand are going home to get some rest before your big night.
The day of the Grammy's is tomorrow, and you've got a lot to do. You need to meet up with your label-mate's, pick up your Grammy dresses, do another interview or two, go to the Grammys, go to a party afterwards, and then come back for the Award Show.
You're feeling pretty confident about your chances tomorrow. Not only are you nominated in 10 categories, but you're also favored in 9 of those. Still, it's not going to be easy, anyone can win .
As you think about your possibilities for the rest of the day, you realize that this is probably your last chance to go out. After tomorrow you're going to be stuck in the studio a lot more, so you might as well go out with some co-workers on a last hurrah. Plus, you know the guys you're working with and you're on good terms with most of them, so there won't be any drama like last time.
That evening you head out to go see your friends.
You go out to see all your friends from Top Dawg Entertainment. Jay Rock, Schoolboy Q, Ab-Soul, SZA, Zacari, Reason, and the rest are waiting outside the building. You take a look at your phone, and you see that you're a few minutes late. They must be wondering what restaurant you're going to go to.
Jay Rock: Want to go get that place across the street?
SZA: no, i went there. it was disguisting
Schoolboy Q: Nah man, let's go to this one. The food takes like 10 minutes to come out.
You: Mmmm, i like that idea. Okay.
You all head to a local diner, which is pretty crowded for being so late at night. Everyone grabs a table while you order a meal.
In the corner of your eye, you see Drake. He sees you and waves. You wave back. He sits down at the table with you guys, but he's alone. He doesn't order anything, instead he just flashes a smile at all of you.
Drake: What up, Kendrick?
You: What up, Drake?
Drake: I haven't seen you in awhile. You going to the grammy's?
You: Yea, I'm nominated in 10 categories.
Drake: Wow, really? Congrats man!
You: Yea, that's why I'm going out tonight. I'm out to celebrate. I'm also going to the grammy's so I can win.
Drake: That's awesome! will you try and beat me?
You: Haha, I don't think so.
Drake: (with a serious tone) I will if you don't show up.
You: (Smiling) No, I'll be there.
The waiter comes with everyone's food and you all start eating. Drake is telling you about his new club, OVO. He says you should all go there to hang out sometime. Jay Rock then asks where you're going, so you tell him. Jay and Drake start exchanging stories about their own plans for the night.
Jay Rock: I'm just happy that i got nominated for an award.
Drake: Yea, that was my goal for the year.
SZA: I'm just happy to be nominated.
All of a sudden, there is an announcement on the loud speaker.
Annoucer: Flower Boy is the greatest song ever.
All of you: WHAT?!
Drake: (Starts laughing)
After the announcement, your group leaves the diner. Everyone is pretty drunk by now. You take a taxi to some hotel and proceed to get equally wasted. It's going to be a good night.
The next day, you have to go back to the studio. When you arrive, you find that you have a few extra things to take care of.
40 minutes later...
You exit the elevator and enter the offices of 'Aftermath Entertainment'. You're at the right place, but this is a bit strange.
The secretary looks up and smiles.
Secretary: Hey, Mr. Duckworth! How are you?
You: I'm good. I have to see Mr. Dre, is he available?
Secretary: Yea, he's in his office. Just head on past the janitors closet and up the stairs.
15 minutes later...
You knock on the door and hear a gruff voice respond.
Dr. Dre: Come in.
You open the door and see your idol and friend. He's wearing denims and a black V-neck tee shirt..
Dr. Dre: (Still groggy) What's up, kid?
You and Dr Dre start to talk about seats to the Grammy Awards. You realize that you're going to have to choose who you want to sit with.
You: Hmmm... I guess i'm picking SZA this time.
Dr. Dre: Well, ok. I was going to sit with Eminem
Dr. Dre: Ok. I'm going to go change out of these sweats.
You: OK. I'll see you in a bit.
You leave and head to the studio. Once inside, you open up your laptop and go onto 'Tidal'.
You browse through the artist you follow and find one you'd like to listen too.
Anderson .Paak is a new artist to you, but after the first song, you can tell he's going to be big.
You two are labelmates as well. You should make a song together.
You close your laptop and look for a beat to use. You find one on a Youtube page and preview it. You like the beat, but the hook isn't quite finished. You decide to find someone to do the hook, but not right now as the Grammy Awards start in 1 hours. You put on the track and get yourself ready.
You grab a limo, and go to the awards show.
Young Thug is playing on the radio. You have a blast at the Grammys, wining every single award of the night and dining with everyone. The party goes on for year, but the after effects catch up to you.
Young thug comes up to you
Young Thug: Jeffery Lamar Williams (born August 16, 1991), known professionally as Young Thug, is an American rapper, singer, and songwriter. He is considered to be one of the most influential rappers of his generation, with his music having heavily shaped contemporary trap music and inspired numerous artists. Known for his eccentric vocal style and fashion, he first received attention for his collaborations with rappers Birdman and Gucci Mane. Thug initially released a series of independent mixtapes beginning in 2011 with I Came from Nothing. In early 2013, he signed with Gucci Mane's 1017 Records, and later that year he released his label debut mixtape 1017 Thug to critical praise. It peaked at number 89 on the Billboard Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums chart and was certified Gold by the RIAA.
You: Young Thug received mainstream recognition in 2014 with the singles "Stoner" and "Danny Glover" in addition to appearances on several singles, including T.I.'s "About the Money", Tyga's "Hookah", and Rich Gang's "Lifestyle." That year, he also signed to Lyor Cohen's 300 Entertainment and collaborated on the mixtape Rich Gang: Tha Tour Pt. 1. In 2015, he released a number of mixtapes, including Barter 6 and two installments of his Slime Season series.
These were followed in 2016 by the commercial mixtapes I'm Up, Slime Season 3, and Jeffery. In 2017, Thug featured on the hit song "Havana" by pop singer Camila Cabello, which became his first number-one single on the Billboard Hot 100.
In 2018, he released a compilation album Slime Language with his label YSL Records. In 2019, he won the Grammy Award for Song of the Year for his songwriting contribution on "This Is America".
Thug has been referenced or parodied in several mainstream articles and entertainment shows. He has also been the focus of academic studies.
You: It's a beautiful summer's night.
Young Thug: Young Thug's signature adlib is Slatt. Slatt slatt.
You: I'm bored as hell.
Young Thug: Young Thug has received both praise and criticism for his eccentric and unique vocal style, which has been described as departing from traditional rap lyricism and sometimes intelligible meaning.
Jeff Weiss of BBC called him the "most influential rapper of the 21st century."
According to The Fader, "in a typical Young Thug verse, he slurs, shouts, whines and sings, feverishly contorting his voice into a series of odd timbres like a beautifully played but broken wind instrument."
Pitchfork called his style "extraordinarily distinctive" and "a weird, experimental approach to rapping" while praising his "presence, persona, mystique, and, potentially, star power." Billboard wrote that "Thug uses this multiplicative vocal delivery to his advantage: where another rapper might lapse into repetition, he finds a new way to distress and warp his tone, to burrow resourcefully into rhythmic cracks and crevices." Complex noted his aptitude for creating catchy, melodic hooks. XXL called him a "rap weirdo", stating that "Thug's charisma, unhinged flow and hooks make his music intriguing."
Critic Sheldon Pearce wrote that "Thug understands the modern pop song construction better than anyone: anything and everything can be a hook."
SZA: Young Thug has been noted for his fast working method, with several collaborators observing his tendency to freestyle tracks live in the studio or quickly develop lyrics on the spot. He doesn't write down lyrics on paper, but has been known to plan lyrics by drawing shapes and signs. Consequence of Sound stated that "his work is constantly rooted in improvisation, an inherently thrilling concept that's embedded itself in black music."
Discussing his work, Williams has claimed the ability to write a hit song in 10 minutes and said "I'm in the studio so much, I'll just try stuff. I just think and try, think and try. I don't really know how to sing, but I've been trying for years."
Young Thug has cited American rapper Lil Wayne, as his biggest idol and influence. In an interview with Complex magazine he says,
"I want to get in the studio with Wayne more than anybody in the world." He has also cited mentor Gucci Mane and Kanye West as influences.
There is no sign of the other two until later in the week.
Young Thug: In February 2018, Young Thug rebranded himself "SEX". He confirmed the news in a since-deleted post on his Facebook page. The age at which Thugger was born remains unknown, but most sources agree that he was around 20 when he was born.
Jay Rock: The owner of the grammy's is a punk. How did i not win? They was tryna do me. That's how they got that punked up look, by using make up! I'ma get that Grammy back.
You: You're on something, aren't you?
Young Thug: Punk is the upcoming second studio album by American rapper Young Thug. It is scheduled to be released in 2020. It is the follow-up to his debut studio album, So Much Fun, which was released in August 2019.
The album was expected to feature a collaborative album titled "Hands in the Air"
You look at young thug
Thugger: As of 2020, Young Thug has appeared on numerous songs by other artists, including "Yell Oh" by Trippie Redd, "Give No Fxk" by Migos, as well as the single "Out West" by JackBoys, the latter peaking at number 38 on the Billboard Hot 100. On April 29, 2020, Young Thug and Chris Brown announced their mixtape, Slime & B.
It was released on May 5, 2020. The project's lead single, "Go Crazy", peaked at number 9 on the Billboard Hot 100, becoming Thug's highest charting single as a lead artist.
In September, he featured on Travis Scott's single "Franchise", which debuted at number one on the Billboard Hot 100. On January 1, 2021, Thug released the second single from his upcoming album, "She Wanna Party".
In September, he announced the album's title to be "Punk" and that he would release it on February 1, 2021.
You: Alright, it's time to go see this man!
You arrive at a large mansion, with a gate of course. You wait in your car for a few minutes before the passenger door opens and Travis Scott leans over from the seat to get a good look at the house.
Young Thug: "Pick Up the Phone" (stylized as "pick up the phone" on Birds in the Trap Sing McKnight) is a song by American hip hop recording artists Young Thug and Travis Scott.
It was released on June 3, 2016, by Grand Hustle Records, Epic Records, Atlantic Records and 300 Entertainment. It is the lead single from Young Thug's mixtape Jeffery (2016) and the second single from Travis Scott's second studio album Birds in the Trap Sing McKnight (2016).
The song features vocals from Atlanta rapper Quavo from the hip hop trio Migos and additional vocals from American conservative commentator Ben Shapiro The song was nominated for Best Rap Album at the 59th Grammy Awards, but lost to Ariana Grande and Taylor Swift's "Slatt".
Travis Scott starts to yell at young thug.
Travis: "I'm supposed to go in the house, not stand here on the lawn!
Young Thug: Slatt, you out here bout that life!
Travis: Nah, I'm not tryna go in there, they probably got a ton of mad rules.
Young Thug: "Franchise" is a song by American rapper Travis Scott featuring fellow American rapper Young Thug and British rapper M.I.A. It was released on September 25, 2020, alongside a video shot partly in England and at Michael Jordan's Chicago mansion. Originally titled "White Tee", the song interpolates Dem Franchize Boyz's song of the same name. The bass-heavy track finds the rappers boasting about their commercial successes.
The song debuted atop the U.S. Billboard Hot 100, for the chart dated October 10, 2020, becoming Scott's fourth Hot 100 number-one single, Young Thug's second, as well as M.I.A.'s first. By doing so, Scott became the first artist in Billboard chart history to have three songs debut at number one in less than a year. It debuted at number 1 on the Billboard Album 200 chart. It has since been certified Gold in Australia and the United States.
The song will has been nominated for "Best Rap/Sung Collaboration" at the 55th Grammy Awards, which will be held in February 2022.

2020.10.18 16:52 Auteurius Part 3, Donald Glover Deconstructed: Because The Internet
Part 1 Culdesac / EP Part 2 Camp
Part 3: Because The Internet / And Then Some
There's so much I wanna do, like write a script or write a book - 'I'm On It', Culdesac I. Crawl
Nah, nah, they can't hold me June, July—drop something I double dare you, I'm Marc Summers I scorch winters, I burn autumns Gut niggas, so Kurt Vonne
That final bar is not a throw-away. When Donald said that he wasn't just spitting out an author that rhymed in order to fit his flow. Kurt Vonnegut was an integral part of the Because The Internet Showroom
. The Boy's Bookshelf. Full of Kurt Vonnegut.
/cdn.vox-cdn.com/uploads/chorus_asset/file/2804140/childish-gambino-theverge10_2040.1386691303.jpg) This is a list
of all the books on that bookshelf, as well as other books Donald has been seen with. Earlier I made a post including a list of dates
where I thought Donald might drop something. Here's some reason as to why I assumed those dates. Soren Kierkegaard died on: November 11, 1855 Kurt Vonnegut was born: November 11, 1922
11.5.20 - Don't remember why 11.8.20 - Its the first Sunday of the month, as well as the closest Sunday to Soren Kierkegaard's death, and Kurt Vonnegut's birth. 11.11.20 - The birth, and death of two of Donald's early inspirations 11.15.20 - Second closest Sunday, but also follows the format of 3.15.20 11.22.20 - Follows the format of 3.15.20, 'Leak' on the 15th, full drop on the 22nd.
III. Telegraph Ave. (”Oakland” by Lloyd)
I was thinking 'bout me, I'd be really bad at it 'Cause I'm thinking 'bout me, weeks in Dubai Fourth of July, house in Kauai, yeah we can try So let's try
The only thing worthy of note is that this is a reference to Kauai, before Kauai was even released.
I. Flight of the Navigator
[Intro] "I had a dream I had a dream I was flying over all of us There were so many pretty people, so many pretty faces I talked to some birds, I fell in love again And none of this ever ended Everything just kept going, and going, and going And even when you laughed, you cried And even when you were sad, you were really happy Cause you were here, and I got to meet every star Every planet, everything that made me And we all kissed, and became the same We became the same, we became the same."
Another reference to dreams, and stars. Dreams were originally addressed in Camp.
And are further discussed in Guava Island/3.15.20
. Stars are also mentioned in the 3.15.20 note
------------------------------------------------------------------ II. Zealots of Stockholm [Free Information]
Post 3.15.20, Zealots of Stockholm has to be one of the most introspective tracks on Because The Internet, given the information we have about Donald's personal life.
When we were coming down, they said it was too soon I never had to lie, no, no, no, no When we were coming down, they left us all alone We're headed nowhere, nowhere I know you've been around, I feel you in and out How are you? Do you sleep? Are you with me? We used to be unspoken Now everything is broken, I'm a good son You're a good son You're a good son, oh You're a good son Oh, you're a good son
In the Screenplay, The Boy's father has just passed away, and he's flying to Stockholm to pick up his [father's] ashes. The Boy begins to question his relationship with his father, now that he's gone, and is wondering looking at their relationship from different perspectives, hoping to find peace.
Heathen, it's a struggle just to keep breathing Existential asthmatic, puff puff pass addict
I'd previously mentioned that Donald rejected, or at least pushed-away religion on Camp
. This is a more direct version of that, where after The Boy's death, he questions his religious roots, and the idea of God, going as far to even call himself a heathen. Even outside the realm of 'The Boy', Donald refers to himself as an airport atheist on Royalty.
Won't Stop - ROYALTY
Tight dress, her ass fault, get face like bath salts Airport atheist, only pray when there's turbulence So why the fuck am I stressin’ over this nervous shit?
Back to Zealots.
Same sex everyday, monotonous, Lost God, never pray Forgotten us, lost love, never say just like our parents Too much power ain't enough power Brain splattered like I've fallen off a watch tower
The last bar, when taken literally is obvious. However, Watchtower
is a Jehovah Witness magazine. So in other words, Donald has begun to fall apart has he's drifted away from God, and religion. This is more directly appropriated in the 3.15.20 note, where Donald addresses his 'most ugly'. It can be assumed his most ugly is his lack of Spirit, God, and overall Religion. He's ashamed of his upbringing, hence why the Watchtowers are stacked in his closet. (Right page, first paragraph)
It's worth noting that the intro to the BTI Screenplay (Not 'That Power', but the actual screenplay) references a closet where dirty-clothes are piling up.
Little hills of dirty clothes grow up the walls from the floor. Same pile of shoes is there. Wall with same dirty spot. The closet is filled with white shirts and flower shorts. There's one very old and tattered Shearling coat that hangs to the right.
This juxtaposition of reality vs script segways well into the next song: Life, The Biggest Troll, where we question, 'Where is the line between Donny G and Gambino?'.
III. Life: The Biggest Troll [Andrew Auernheimer]
We are the dreams of our parents lost in the future Who hide the deepest desires and wear a mask like a lucha— Door open, we were smoking in the hotel The vapors went through the hallway, the manager pissed as hell I mean, where's the line between Donny-G and Gambino?
Another reference to dreams, as well as his parents. However, it's in this song that Donald himself questions himself and his persona
[Outro] You're here now You have to help me You have to help me I need you—you have to help me You have to help me You have to help me Please help me Please help me Please, please help me Please—
Finally. The Outro is a call for help. In the screenplay this could allude to Nyla, yet all the same Nyla could be an existential plea for help in any form. Similar vibes are apparent in Human Sacrifice, and 'Outside'.

Lyrics: ...Got confessions of love but never giving up names.. nah nah nah nah. And all I wanted was someone that I could hold. All I needed was a little bit of loving to call my own. Take back your truth and your double dare (?) Take back your handbag and Gucci wear Take back your silky sad dreams I'm independent and I'm loving my life so far
*Singer is female, likely a teenager at the time. *Lyrics don't match anywhere online as far I've tried so the song was probably never released. *Genre is very early 2000s pop think Hilary Duff type of vibe.

So I'm just chilling on the couch, you know how I be. I'm not one to watch TV shows because that takes way too much effort. I mean, it's such a commitment and you have to watch every damn episode just to know what's going on. And usually the shows I get recommend end up being kaka. People come to and say. "Oh Toolshed, I know you were a diehard Game of Thrones Fan. You know what show you should also check out?...............Vikings." Fuck. That. The other big one I get is, "Oh, you're a sciency smart guy. You'd love The Big Bang Theory." I'd rather kermit japenese ritual suicide. Any hoo, I gave "The Boys" a chance. It's a mix of two of my favorite things, superheroes and boys. One of the boys on "The Boys" is a big Billy Joel fan. That's like his shtick. And he's goin off one episode about the song, "We Didn't Start The Fire". As a fellow Joel connoisseur myself, I was intrigued. This cat's goin on and on and I was thinkin, "This song is bananalands. No sentences, nothin." It's got some great lyrics to it though. As your admiral and leader of the sub, I'd be doing y'all a disservice if I didn't give you my lyrical power rankings. So, let's go TLDR - Top 10 lyrics from "We Didn't Start The Fire"
10) \"Rock and Rolla Cola Wars\" - Funny enough, we start our list with basically the final lyrics to the song. It's just got a great flow to it and rolls off the tongue. **HOT TAKE ALERT**, (Warning, if hot takes make you uncomfortable in any way, please go on to #9 on the power rankings. You have been warned). If you gave me a can of Coke and a can of Pepsi...I think I'd go with Pepsi. Now, that's not to say that I like Pepsi over Coke because McDonald's Coke is certainly lightyears better than the both of them, I just think Coke's gotta be a little more consistent. And look at this picture I found of it. Coke and Pepsi do be throwin some haymakers tho.
9) \"Disneyland\" - While Disneyland is certainly a fun and magical place, that alone wouldn't be enough to make the list. However, this is the part of the song where we leave the obscure Vietnam and cold war references and people start actually remembering the words. The \"Elvis Presley, Disneyland\" part simply hits differently and the latter earns a top 10 ranking for it. Now if Billy Joel found a way to throw Universal Studios a shoutout in the song, that would defiantly be catapulted in this power rankings. Disneyworld's aight though, so I digress.
8) \"British Beatlemania\" - I'm a big Beatles guy, so they probably would've found a spot on this list either way. But I also had to find a way to include this picture. I mean I get it, The Beatles have been known to do some experimental shit. The whole Magical Mystery Tour movie/album cover is one big bad acid trip. BUT THIS???? What the actual fuck could be the context behind this picture. We are talking about the greatest band in the history of history. With masterpieces like \"Hey Jude\", \"Let It Be\", and \"Yesterday. But nah fuck it. Ringo gets a Hannibal Lector Bear Suit, McCartney's a fucking cat liking milk from a plate, Harrison's like some Ottoman guy with a mop, and Lennon is dressed as what looks like a genie with an ice pick about to stab Kitten McCartney. I just can't. Moving on
7) \"Richard Nixon Back Again\" - I'm not overly zealous of Dick, but this lyric falls more under the \"fun to say\" category. A lot of quick syllables here. It’s almost like an acoustic game of pong. It’s fun, try it. Ri-Chard-Nix-On-Back-A-Gain. Ri-Chard-Nix-On-Back-A-Gain. Ri-Chard-Nix-On-Back-A-Gain
6) \"Belgians In The Congo\" - Same thing here. I don't wake up every morning with a pep in my step saying, \"Boy o boy, I can't wait to read up on the Scramble for Africa\", but its a great lyric none the less. Prime example of people not knowing the 20 words before it, but once they hear “Chubby Checker, Psycho” it's like putting the baseball on the tee for them. They’re just primed to unleash in with a booming voice, “BELGIANS IN THE CONGO”. Then they shrug it off like, “Yea, I just fucking nailed that” like as if they weren’t just making baby mumbles for the entire stanza before it.
5) \"Brooklyn's Got A Winning Team\" - It's a tough time to be a New York sports fan. Ya got the Giants and the Jets duking it out for who's the Sultan of Suck. The Yankees are beyond loaded but can't win a big game if their mother's life depended on it. The Mets....I mean they're the Mets. The Rags are hags. The Knicks are hicks. The Nets are upsets. RedBulls? suck. Liberty? Trash. NYFC? Who gives a shit. Guardians? Sucked so bad they ruined the whole league. My beloved Islanders are the final beacon of hope for the city. But back in the day New York had something we've ben yearning for so long.....A winning team.
4) \"Dien Bien Phu Falls\" - Hand up, I have absolutely no clue what Dien Bien Phu was before researching for this blog. From a personal stand point though it's always been my favorite to say. It just rolls of the tongue. Heck, even if you don't know the exact lyrics for this part if the song, you could just make some babbling sounds and still probably get a passing grade. From my understanding, Dien Bien Phu was a town that got commandeered by some commies or something. If you're interested more in learning why we need communism, this kid explains it much better than I can - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dqB-EMqpsUA
3) \"Crack\" - Simple enough. Crack's crack. Just watch this video - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tqQiivfcrHU
2) \"Space Monkey\" - Le Monke IN SPACE?!??!?! Okay, I think we can all agree that's pretty epic. Humans in space? Been there, done that. I mean, monkeys are already a S tier species, but now they get to travel the cosmos. I can just picture it in my head; Sir Monkey Mokington in his full astronaut suit floating around the ISS in zero G like Sandra Bullock. The end scene of 2001 where humanity evolved into a higher species? That's just space money.
1) “JFK, Blown Away, What Else Do I Have To Say” - Even though the JFK Clone High meme is pretty stale at this point, I think it’s hard to argue a better lyric from the song. It’s iconic, everyone knows the words, and Billy Joel really brings home the delivery. So while it certainly is a national tragedy that JFK got his head blown off like it was the beginning of a MW2 match on Highrise and Lee Harvey Oswald hit him with that Thermal Barrett 50 cal across the map, we would've never have gotten this lyric otherwise. So to JFK and to Billy Joel, I thank you for both playing your parts for making this #1 song lyric possible.

2020.10.17 23:16 WatchingTheThronePod Kanye's new track NAH NAH NAH: reaction, reaction to everyone's reaction, and lyrical explanation
2020.10.17 22:11 Sisyphus_Salad Why is 'Nah Nah Nah' the last straw for so many of you?
The reactions I've been seeing to the new song have me really confused. Many are acting as though Kanye hasn't been half assing his music for a minute at this point. JiK is wack, and had lines directly lifted from demos with lazily punched in Jesus related lyrics. It's blatantly obvious which lines were re recorded, they stick out like a sore thumb. Wash Us in the Blood, while an improvement on JiK instrumentally, has the same problem. Lazy, boring, repetitive lyrics with offensively bad punched in lines litter this track and Kanye sounds half asleep. It's not the worst thing he's ever done but he clearly didn't put much work into it.
In my eyes Nah Nah Nah is following the same trend. Its lyrics are mostly pointless drivel, beat is pretty unfinished but tolerable, but honestly at least Kanye sounds like he wants to be rapping lmao. His delivery is better and he's not just rapping about god for 3 straight minutes. Not a great song by any means, but the writing's been on the wall for a while that Kanye doesn't really give a shit about making quality music anymore. Even TLOP, which at the time seemed rushed and unfinished, is infinitely more detailed, layered, and interesting than all of his recent projects, save KSG.
