Oh that Mackelmore and Lewis. NSFW langauge, but that chorus just rings! I can’t explain the video.
If you’re still in a hip hop mood, the last verse in Eminem’s Rap God does amazing things with words. It’s Eminem, so, of course controversy. It’s fascinating to hear someone string rhymes together like that though.
Time makes for an interesting juxtaposition.
I don’t know if it’s bad or good. Caught me off guard as I watched the local team:
As seen on MPS:
This one time, when I was playing a song on the street, the original artist started singing with me.
Some info on why this had only been floating on the intertubes as a low resolution video:
10 years ago I took 2 weeks off work and animated this fan video for Ween. They loved it so much they made it the official video.
It’s been on YouTube for a long time on other people’s channels, but generally at a very low res. Lots of people have asked me why I hadn’t uploaded it myself, so 10 years later, here it is.
Switched from pipeline work in the middle of someplace to wind farm work in the middle of nowhere. Scanning the dial for local flavor and a college station I picked up played this track from New Zealand. Had to go all the way to Texas to hear a band from New Zealand.

So… how did they do? Tell us about your ’80s playlist and what—if anything—they missed.
I heard an interview on NPR a few weeks back with Neko Case. I forgot about it until I saw that Bob Cesca posted one of her new songs. The song is nice. The quick interview revolved around her bouts of depresion:
“I don’t think it something that people are going to learn anything from. I’m not trying to say my ‘genius’ bummer I’m going to lay on you right now is quite momentous. It’s more like, ‘Hey guys, sucks to feel crappy, doesn’t it? Yeah, it does. Sorry, man.’ And then you move on.”
I’ve checked the peer reviewed journals. It’s true. No one knows what a fox sounds like.
Side note: I saw this a couple weeks ago when it had a few hundred thousand views. Sent it to my ecologist buddies. We laughed. My kids think it’s funny. I thought it was a one-off joke video. I had no clue this was on it’s way to over 33 million views 2 weeks later. Lesson learned – I shall share more with the MPS crew.
