I have to retract something I said about Drake a couple months back. I still don't think he's a genius, but I like one of his songs. The Motto with Lil Wayne & Tyga is my jam this week. Actually, Drake is the worst part of that song. I don't know what the appeal is here, honestly. Lil Wayne & Tyga are pretty funny. But maybe it's only the fact that the backing track sounds exactly like what I would make in Reason. If someone separated it & told me "hey andrea I took this track you made six years ago and rapped over it." I might be confused enough to believe it for a minute. It's nothing special. It's just my personal aesthetic. Like it's real close to my fingerprints. The first time I heard it on 107.5 I took my hands off the steering wheel to clap like a seal. And that's like the whitest most incorrect thing you can do in reaction to a song like that. And it's one of those frustrating songs that half disappears if you don't listen to it on substantial speakers, because the low end is sooo low and it's key. Trust me, on computer speakers or crappy headphones it just sounds like hand claps, so forget it. You need to be in a car to hear it.
Ok, anyway, now that I've thoroughly confused my only 3 readers (mother, mother-in-law & sister-in-law) I'm going on vacation now. Tomorrow I'm going to drive around an island on the wrong side of the road listening to that song. And it's going to be weird. And awesome. I also downloaded some old grateful dead songs. I'm having a midlife crisis or something.
I have some good news to report when we get back. No, we're not having a baby. It's not that.
