I am a young college student at a school of utmost prestige, Western Michigan University. I am studying to become a journalist, but do not let that raise your hopes for the quality of writing found on this site.
Yea, so this may be one of the worst things I have ever heard, and it sounds worse live. I really don't get it. I thought in the music business there are people who determine wheter albums/songs/ideas are good enough to be released and thats why great artists like The Clipse, Q-Tip and Jon Brion get albums shelved. Where is this person for Wayne? Why doesnt someone close to Wayne tell him this sucks. It's like in 30 Rock when Grizz and Dot-Com laugh at Tracy everytime he makes the "I love ___ so much I'm gunna take it behind the midde school and get it pregnant" joke. It would appear Wayne's entourage does th exact same thing. The only reason this frustrates me is that I'm sure i will hear this song more times than shitty songs by Plies because teenage/college girls aren't obsessed with Plies, and I guess because I like Lil Wayne and would prefer he focus his time on making rap music. Preferreably good rap, but even bad Wayne rap is superior to this.
I know I am not the first to say that I love "Merriweather Post Pavilion," the new Animal Collective album, but it is fantastic. "My Girls" maybe one of my favorite songs to come out in the last 12 months, maybe longer. Kanye also apparently likes the song, or at least the video. What if Kanye tried to make an Animal Collective CD? Be on the lookout for "Plain Pat & Emile Presents: Here Comes the Black Mullet Mixtape," in which Kanye, Kid CuDi, Big Sean, Drake, Charles Hamilton and Theophilus London "rap" over Animal Collective songs. Also that is not an insult to people just named. Not yet, maybe Drake, I'm not sure.
I have seen countless blogs on Blogger posting music. Too many to count. I had 3/4 of Kanye from one blog I never heard of that iI saw on last.fm. My year-end list post got deleted, and i assume it was because of the tracks I posted, because i don't know why else it would happen. Fuck you Blogger, I spent waaay too much time on that last post, and I do not want to do it again. This is lame.
