Robin Thicke ~ Blurred Lines/Rant about the state of the music industry.

I originally set out to write this post on the video to Robin Thicke’s song, Blurred Lines. It’s a catchy song and I figured the video would be pretty good too. Then I went on YouTube and saw the video. That’s when I decided that I cannot, in good conscience do a serious post on the song or the video. The song itself is pretty decent, it’s not ground breaking or anything like that but it’s a catchy song. The video on the other hand completely epitomises what I imagine the stereotypical music video to be. Before I go any further let me just say this, above is the video I first saw for the song. Typical bullshit video with money, women and jewellery.

I then found out that there is another video for that song. A completely official and 100% done by the exact same people video. The only difference is that in the second “unrated” video the women are naked. Someone looked at that video and decided that, “Semi naked women are cool. But you know what’s really cool? Naked chicks!” Seriously, what kind of thought process goes into making an almost exact replica with just one minor difference? The video won’t be seen by many people because it’s not going to be shown on tv or anything like that. It’s a complete and utter waste of money.

If you want to leave then this is your chance, if you want to keep going and read my rant on the state of the music industry then hit the jump.  Continue reading

E-Dubble-Last Man Standing

When I first started this blog I honestly didn’t think I would have the chance to write a post on one of my favourite rappers, E-Dubble. But it seems that some prayers do get answered because Mr Dubble started the year off right with an anthem in “Last Man Standing”. For those of you who don’t know about E-Dub then here’s a small intro.

E-Dub is a beast on the mic and the big man hails from Philidelphia but now resides in Baltimore. And as for E-Dub’s style…well it’s party music, deep, emotional, sometimes political. In short, E-Dubble doesn’t confine himself to one style or genre. His tracks have had samples from Hanson, Lykke Li, Matthew Dear.  Hit the jump for the rest of the post.  Continue reading
