LIZZO x SISTER ACT 2 & HOW THEY KILLED ME

FIRST OF ALL, WATCH THIS:

Was that not one of the greatest award show performances you’ve ever watched ever in the entirety your life?

Let me tell you something, when the producer came through and said “Lizzo says take off your robes” my wig consequently flew off as well. I was like “gO OFF bitch!!”

Now, I’m a relatively brand new Lizzo fan…like within the last month. This is the first video I’ve ever watched of her performing live and the fact that she perfectly referenced my most favorite movie of all time throughout “Juice”…Like I have no words, are you serious?!?!

AND she did it so well. It was subtle enough that it wasn’t overkill (though if she literally reenacted the entire movie on stage I probably wouldn’t think that was overkill either). She got the “La”s! She got the dancers! She got the chorus! She got the Holi Spirit!

2019 MTV Movie And TV Awards - Show

To be honest, I’m not a big movie fan in general and since I a) don’t have cable and b) forgot my parent’s AT&T Uverse password so I couldn’t tune in live on the app and c) didn’t explore another option bc I wasn’t that concerned, I wasn’t planning on tuning in. Then, this random girl I met once named Raina texted me about it bc she knows my undying love for Sister Act 2 and award shows, so I went to Twitter, found the video and all I could literally do was smile so hard from ear to ear.

That’s my favorite part about live award show performances–they have a chance like no other to get viewers to have an experience through the screen, to connect with not only the song but also the artist.

Praise Lizzo. Praise Whoopi.

This one goes into the archives along with Florence + The Machine’s 2010 VMA “Dog Days Are Over” performance, Lady Gaga’s 2009 “Paparazzi” performance, Kendrick Lamar’s 2015 (?) Grammys performance, and so many more.

Whoopi approves, I heard.

who the f@#$ was Leo Baekeland?

I reference this old genius in my hit, “Plastic”: 

“Leo Baekeland you were too good

‘cuz your product’s way better than wood”

and in fact, it’s true. Mr. Baekeland is often referred to as the “father of the modern plastics industry” largely because of his invention of bakelite, which is dope bc i would fuqqin totally name some shit i invented after myself like are you kidding.

Garthchase.jpg

anyway, bakelite was the first thermosetting plastic, a plastic that does not melt or soften when heated. this new invention literally paved the way for every plastic we use today.

needless to say, Baekeland was smart as fuqq. born in Ghent, he stayed there until 1889 when he came to the United States to join a photographic firm. there he realized his pioneering talent and was like “ayyy i’m going to start my own business and develop this shit further for me & not some boss,” and he did.

out on his own, he manufactured his invention, Velox, which was the first commercially successful photographic paper which could develop under artificial light. he later sold the company and the rights to the paper for a mere milli.

in 1905 he was just putzin around and was like (to no one in particular) “you know what would be bitchin? a synthetic substitute for shellac!” the quest for such a substitute led him to discover bakelite around 1907. though it had technically been discovered before, no one had been able to find a way to form it into thermosetting plastic–but Leo, he could do anything.

& he did!

and that, kiddos, is why he’s known as the father of the modern plastics industry.

interesting, huh?

Dial this hit up on any of these streaming platforms (& many others) and reconsider some of that single-use planet-murdering plastic that we just can’t seem to live without.

Enjoy!

PLASTIC!

Plastic is………..unfortunately, one of the most effective inventions….ever.

it keeps its shape, its durable af and it lasts {litter}ally thousands of years (see what i did there).

Here are some unfortunate facts about one of the greatest inventions ever: courtesy of OceanConservancy.org

  1. Use of plastics has surpassed all other man-made materials except steel and cement.
  2. Global production of plastic increased from 2 million tons in 1950 to 380 million tons by 2015, a growth rate 2.5 greater than that of the global economy. Half of that amount was produced in just the last 13 years–IN THE LAST 13 YEARS YOU GUYS.
  3. If this global trend in production continues, humans will have produced 34 billion tons of plastic by 2050, four times more than we have made to date. Close to half—46% of that (a whopping 12 billion tons)—is expected to be discarded in landfills or the natural environment.
  4. As a material, plastic is long lasting as shit, durable as shit, and doesn’t degrade worth shit. This is one of the reasons it’s so useful when it comes to human health and food safety–especially in the developing world. But this also means that plastics accumulate in the natural environment and landfills, leading to what some guy named Geyer and his coauthors call a growing concern of a “near-permanent contamination of the natural environment.
  5. Six different types of plastic (polyethylene (PE), polypropylene (PP), polystyrene (PS), polyvinylchloride (PVC), polyethylene terephthalates (PET), and polyurethane (PUR) account for 92% of all the plastics ever made and 42% of that has been used for packaging, generally with a lifespan of less than 1 year before being discarded.
  6. There are only 4 ways to handle plastic at the end of its life: recycled, destroyed or converted to fuel or energy through incineration or pyrolysis, disposed of in managed waste systems OR discarded where it ends up in the natural environment. :/
  7. The highest recycling rates are in Europe (30%) and China (25%) whereas the United States has had a relatively dismal rate of 9% since 2012. ***cue Miley’s banger, “WAKE UP AMERICA” ********
  8. A whopping 79% of all the plastics ever produced have now been discarded. Only 21% of plastics are still in active use.

You guys, if those numbers don’t mean anything to you,

 

So let’s start today because we can’t rewind the clock and work a lil harder to save this fuqqin planet.

Here’s how:

  1. Stream my new single “Plastic” as soon as it drops @ 12:01 am EARTH DAY
  2. recycle
  3. CUT DOWN ON THE SINGLE USE PLASTIC! Bring reusable shopping bags to the store, buy fruit whole and cut it up yourself (no need for those plastic containers), bring your own cup to Starbucks, and PICK UP and properly discard random pieces of trash when you’re out and about!
  4. Keep streaming my new single, “Plastic” out everywhere April 22. Hell, buy the damn thing on iTunes.

Millennials Are Dope As Shit, so suck it.

Don’t make me say it again but you know i will.

I’m shouting that shit from the rooftops bc millennials aren’t just winey pieces of shit spending all of our money on avocado toast

(just SOME of our money, dumbasses)

kind of like how every generation before has WASTED NEARLY EVERY TAX DOLLAR THEY’VE EVER COLLECTED! lolz. anyway, enjoy listening, memorizing, and singing at the top of your lungs at every gen xer and baby boomer with a shitty attitude toward the generation they raised and screwed.

Anyway, check out my latezt single, MILLENNIALS ARE DOPE AS SHIT.

stream it everywhere!

“The Seahorse Song”

So, when I was in school at ACM, we had a songwriting assignment to write a song with the word “seahorse” in it.

my head immediately went to that part of Miley’s “Pablow the Blowfish” when she sings

“I heard of a seahorse named Sadie

I heard she was quite the Lady

Maybe you’ll find her and you can make babies

That’d be, kinda crazy”

And i knew i needed to tell the backstory of Sadie and those she left behind. My songwriting partner, Santiago Ramones, was kind enough to help me flush out the idea and later the incomparable Ciara Brooke helped me turn it into a song for the masses!

Check it out!!

MONEY MONEY MONEY–(a cover by chase & ciara)

It’s honesty hour for a second::

On any given day I jam out to at least 3 ABBA tunessometimes on repeat.

So of course it’s a no brainer that I’m ecstatic for the sequel to one of the greatest stories ever told, “Mamma Mia”.

(still haven’t seen it tho, lol…i really am not a fan of movie theatres?)

In honor of this, the classic Ciara and I decided to cover one of the Swedish world changer’s most famous hits, “Money, Money, Money”!!

It pretty much sums up the vibe of 2018. So, without further ado, i present: “Money, Money, Monéy.” ENJOY, OK
