Had show last night. Played really well. I have been having trouble with my voice and had been stressing out all week that I’d sing really badly. But, for better or for worse, I sounded exactly like I normally do.
Black Eyed Peas’ biggest innovation was becoming a vertically integrated crap factory. They cover all the bases for a pop group and don’t need any outside help. They’ve got the rapper/singer guy, two other rappers who are so forgettable that people could very easily mistake them for guest stars and a white woman singer. Brilliant marketing strategy!
Wiz Khalifa has bragged in a song about all his cars starting “with the push of a button” at least 3 times that I can remember. Dude, it wasn’t that impressive the first time- I have at least 2-3 friends who can say “all my car starts with a push of a button” and none of them are notably rich. Buy two Priuses and you’re a baller by Wiz’ estimation.
The most baller thing I can imagine anyone traveling by is pimped-out rickshaw. Think about it.
Oh nevermind, I think Lady Gaga already did this.
I have a plan that would solve unemployment, destigmatize welfare and add some dynamism to our economy- hold a lottery every year. The names of 10% of employed people are drawn. Those people are put on welfare for a year. No paid work or unpaid internships allowed. This would apply to everyone except a handful of vital industries- nuclear technicians, beer makers, etc. AND the two industries that are actually meritocratic- sports and sales. Admit it, we’re all replaceable. And there’s no future where it makes sense for us all to work either, unless you are a robot/computer AI reading this, in which case it’s already too late for us humans.
