I’ve been doing a lot of writing at work, so lately it’s hard to get excited to write stuff.
I know lots of people hate Creed, and I’m not going to try to convince anyone not to, because I only heard them a few times and thought they were bad enough that my mind blocked their music forever, and I couldn’t even tell you what their songs are. You could play Nickelback and I’d be like “oh, OK.” I actually don’t know Nickelback’s songs either. I do recognize the Foo Fighters.
At any rate, singer Scott Stapp seems to be on a very bad path either on account of addiction or mental illness and that’s not funny. I hope he gets better. In general, it’s fucked up to laugh at the misery of people who make music you don’t like. Seriously, it’s just music. The only artists that deserve condemnation for their art are propagandists. Leni Riefenstahl, for instance. Or really racist ones. But there’s no reason to hate someone for putting out cheesy music. I would say that even if I weren’t someone who makes cheesy music.
I haven’t heard anything from Kesha lately and since she’s fighting with Dr Luke, a guy who is behind a ridiculous number of pop hits, maybe we won’t again. This makes me very sad, because Kesha is my favorite pop singer. And there’s no one to replace her yet. I am bummed about this.
This song is so good and the video is great. Super lo-fi.
I love how Kendrick just wanders into the shot like a lurker and starts rapping- you wanna see a dead body? Where does that voice come from? He’s amazing
