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.

“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

you won’t believe these wild seahorse factz

So, in honor of THE SEAHORSE SONG (dropping July 31), I thought it would be interesting to take a closer look @ the subject of the diddy, the seahorse.

They are actually some of the most interesting creatures on earth to me and I know you’re dying to know some seahorse trivia so without further ado, I give you 11 wild factz about these serene underwater equines!!

GET THIS:

  • Seahorses hold a Guinness world record for slowest swimmers in the sea. the dwarf seahorse moves 5 ft/hr. been there lol

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BdQIykGWpG4&t=1s

  • They have little fins, you guys. OF COURSE SWIMMING IS GOING TO BE DIFFICULT.
  • Like humans, some are monogamous for life and some are just down for breedin’ season

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8M_3uWQYKKY

  • Seahorses engage in an eight-hour courtship dance which includes spinning around, swimming side by side and changing colours.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SYf9MJFsgYg

  • Female seahorses drop their eggs into the male’s pouch for fertilization and then is like byeeee
  • The male seahorse can carry up to 2,000 lil seahorse babies at a time

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MsHCqrrU-Gk

  • Seahorse bbs are called fries
  • They look exactly like their parents
  • They may be small but their appetites are mighty. they can consume up to 3000 brine shrimp per day largely because they have no teeth and no stomach and food just kind of passes through them like very fast

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KCFqrojIcC0

  • they prefer to swim in pairs with their tails linked together

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HqzY-hnf79k

It’s a little diddy about decadence and desire, a nod to vices and being too blasé to change, so i immediately loved it when i heard it in like 8th grade and have listened to it when it came up on shuffle ever since.

I thought it would be a fun one to cover so I headed up to Ciara’s home studio and we came up with this!

“The Avocado Song” LiVE @ Genghis Cohen

Enjoy! (ALSO, you can stream the song on ALL PLATFORMS now!!)

The Bezt 2018 Grammy Performances

I know this is a little belated, but i mean the official videos of most of these Grammy performances didn’t become available until last week, and I know most of you probably didn’t go searching for them on your own in the meantime, so here we are.

It’s a nice surprise and you know you think so.

download.jpeg

This year’s show was packed with performances and most all of them delivered. Plus, Chappelle killed as the host.

So anyway, without further ado, here are my faves from that chilly January night:

Rihanna gives me the wildest of wild thoughts so, I mean. Do I really need to say anything else? DJ Khaled isn’t my favorite but i deal, you know.

P!nk always delivers. Her vocals are killer and she just was like fuqq it, I’m wearing jeans, a tshirt, and no shoes and I’ll still sound better than these hoes. and she did.

Speaking of vocals, this kid absolutely slays every person in the audience with his voice. Childish was of course, great as always.

Skip U2’s appearance and this is, as Kendrick’s performances always are, gold. to do this, jump from 2:03-2:31 and enjoy!

Two of my favorite people in music together on the Grammy stage!! I mean come on, what more could you ask for as a citizen of this earth? (a lot more, i get it but like, this is probably on your list)

The ’90s are my shit and this performance (and the song) evokes all the edgy ‘Saved By The Bell’ vibes you could possibly want. Cardi B is a great performer and paired with Bruno Mars and The Hooligans, it’s some next level fun time shit.

I’ll be honest, it wasn’t my most favorite Kesha performance of all time, but singing the song you wrote about your abuser to a room full of people who know him and have worked with him and didn’t believe you would be a lot. Plus I was like okay ladies, you’re all on this stage for a reason!! join her, help her out, like something, you know. But overall,  a very powerful performance and hopefully some souls are changing.

I have no words bc this performance literally says them all, so.. Logic for president 2024, ppl.

Overall it was a pretty solid show I thought. I wish some of the awards would’ve been placed in different hands but here we are. People have their opinions about the Grammys and the Recording Academy, and as they should. But that doesn’t mean we can’t sit back and enjoy some of our favorite artists performing some of our favorite songs amirite?

I’m right.

GRAMMY NOMS ARE IN AND IDK HOW I FEEL

The 60th Annual Grammy Awards are upon us, and earlier than usual it seems. The show will air January 28th on CBS from Madison Square Garden, NYC. Yes, you read that correctly. NYC.Madison-Square-Garden

This upsets me because I moved to Los Angeles with the idea in my head that at the very least I’d be standing a safe distance away from the building at the 2018 Grammy Awards. this would be easily accomplished by car.

Now, I have to get on a fucking airplane for the chance. And like idk, maybe I won’t. I don’t like the cold and it will be January in New York so, idk.

giphy

Okay so moving past the location fiasco, this past year was insane for music. Incredible projects popped up left and right from newcomers like Khalid and old favorites like Jay Z (while truthfully I didn’t give 4:44 more than a few listens–I’ve been pissed at him for cheating since “Irreplaceable” told the woke people what the fuqq was up in ’06)

But okay, okay, let’s look at some of the most exciting categories (with my favorites in purple) before I continue with my commentary:

I’m cutting it off there because there are like 84 Grammy categories and I do not have that kind of time.

If you have that kind of time, click here for the full list of 2018 Grammy nominees.

I’m elated at the attention Kesha, Kendrick Lamar, Lana Del Rey, & SZA received from the academy but I do wish we would’ve seen a nom for Harry Styles’s ballad-heavy, self titled solo debut album–it seems though that the academy’s disdain for One Direction didn’t die with the band.

Harry-Styles-Sings-One-Direction-Solo-Tour

Zayn, however, was nominated for his work with the snake for 50 Shades Darker, “I Don’t Wanna (Live Forever)”.  If he wins, he’ll be the only former One Direction member to ever win, but for now he’s just the only former One Direction member to ever be nominated.

Going back to my elation about Kesha’s recognition: HFS I’ve never been so happy about a Grammy nominee, I think. After the fuqqed up situation she lived for so long, she deserves every ounce of goodness that comes her way. Plus her album was really, really fuqqing good. I lived each song in some way, you know? Still do. That shit doesn’t happen with every album I listen to. Plus her concert was dope.

kesha-fallon-aug-2017-billboard-1548

PLUS: “Old Flames” (track 12 on Rainbow) is a cover of the song that Kesha’s mom wrote for Dolly Parton to sing on her 1980 smash Dolly, Dolly, Dolly. So obviously that’s fuqqing dope.

ANYWAY, THOUGHTS OVER THE OTHER NOMS:

1-800-273-8255 deserves the honor of Song of the Year. Logic, Alessia Cara, and Khalid shed so much-needed light on mental health. Their powerful performance at the 2017 VMAs reminded us that their song wasn’t just a catchy chart topper–it’s real. If you or anyone you know is contemplating suicide, reach out to the suicide hotline immediately.

Cardi B has continued destroying records, and is now the first solo female rap artist to be nominated for Best Rap Performance.

KSmMBEvY

She will also ‘B’ up against her fiancé, Offset, in said category–(the birth of a new music dynasty?).

With his many Emmy and Grammy wins, Donald Glover is well on his way to EGOT status, and that is impressive as fuqq–and goals as fuqq.

Understandably, “Despacito” was honored despite being one of the most over-played songs ever but it was, after all, like one of the biggest songs in the world. It is the first non-english song to be nominated for both Song and Record of the Year.

I ~almost~ have the entire chorus memorized.

Though she’s never won, this is the first time Katy Perry was not recognized for an eligible body of work. And I mean, Witness was alright, you know…but bitch also stole my googly eye look so idk.

061517-katy-perry

Apparently there’s major drama in the music theatre world when it comes to Grammy nominations but that’s going to take a lot to get into so just take my word for it.

Season seven of Game of Thrones received a nod from the academy, as Ramin Djawadi’s score was nominated for Best Score Soundtrack for Visual Media (against La La Land –which I wasn’t that impressed with?–Arrival, Hidden Figures, and Dunkirk–at least something Harry Styles was apart of was nominated).

Also, excuse me while I lol so hard bc “Look What You Made Me Do” was eligible…and the other two atrocity singles the snake put out this year but all of them were passed up.

kim-kardashian-gif

“LWYMMD” was even eligible for best music video but nah, they saw right through that shit.

d36cf24a99de6f7870fade0a84e00041--kim-kardashian-laughing

People are saying Ed Sheeran was snubbed but like Divide was annoying, so, no. He wasn’t.

2018’s list of nominees does hit on an important trend. The academy appears to have taken streaming success into consideration, as most of the categories are dominated by online chart toppers. And they did a modestly better job of beefing up diversity throughout all categories except Record of the Year (all men).

So anyway, despite my deeply felt annoyance around this year’s location change and lack of je ne sais quoi, I’ll definitely be tuning in. I have no idea who’z slated to perform but that will make the show a lil more exciting, I think.

As always, check out my Twitter page that day for the most annoying barrage of hilarious real-time Grammy commentary.
