    2020 U.S. Election

    Hillary was what a majority of us were prior to Election Day in 2016: Cocky and over confident. Because a majority of us couldn’t possibly imagine that a failed businessman and 3rd rate reality televion Star who pandered to the underbelly of American society could ever become president. You can’t fault her for that. Anyone going up against Donald Trump would’ve probably been the same way. But Hillary wasn’t exactly anyone. She had perceptions of her baked in. Just as he did. The biggest difference is that HIS supporters were rabidly loyalty and inspired by her. And he had more of them. And they came out in droves. Lets remember he only win by about 80,000 votes between two states. Mine (Michigan) being one of them. And let’s also remember ALL three of those states (MI, Wisconsin, Pennsylvania) voted in democratic senators and governors in 2018. These are not red states. They’re very pragmatic, fluid states that bend with the political winds. The rust belt was willing to give Trump a chance. Depending on who the Dems put up in 2020, I’m not so sure these states are willing to do so again. Even despite a good economy.

    Janelle Monae

    This may sound incredibly pretentious, but our society is too dumbed down, too ignorant and too self absorbed to fully appreciate a talent like Janelle. She’s releasing music that’s so far ahead of the curve that Karen Jones in Smithville, Indiana has no idea what she’s even singing about. It’s refreshing that we even have someone like Janelle Monae in this day and age.

    Janelle Monae

    There are a lot of things wrong with the world. And the fact that this incredible woman isn't bigger than what she is is certainly one of them. If there is a Janelle Monae thread, I couldn't find it. She's got two new songs out and they're on fucking FIRE. She is one of the most effortlessly COOL individuals to come out in the music industry within the last 30 years. I have every single one of her albums and each one is fabulous in its own right. She is one of the ultimate victims of white mediocrity.
  4. What a QUEEN. She had this uncanny and natural ability at seeming so warm and approachable yet still maintained her larger than life and diva status at the same time. True star quality.

    Maroon 5: most boring superbowl in history

    Spot. On. I’m not here as some Maroon 5 fan girl, but the fact that critical reviews came out within seconds of their performance is... well.. rather transparent. People had their opinions baked in before they set foot on stage. Politics, social justice and selective outrage has gotten completely out of control in this country.

    Maroon 5: most boring superbowl in history

    No. It wasn’t. The Black Eyed Peas Super Bowl Halftime Show was a complete and total tragedy. Christina Aguilera singing the national anthem was a tragedy. Maroon 5 was just a complete and total bore fest. It’s not like Adam forgot the words of fell or the band forgot how to play their instruments. They dotted their I’s and crossed their T’s. As a band, they were just woefully unprepared to handle a stage like that and never should’ve been granted a spotlight that big in the first place. Even Taylor Swift would’ve been a better choice than them. She’s vile, but her stage production is far more conducive for an event like the Super Bowl.

    Maroon 5: most boring superbowl in history

    The visceral reaction to their performance is obnoxious and completely over the top. Maroon 5 is a middle of the road band that played to middle America. No more, no less. Did anyone really expect ADAM LEVINE to set the stage on fire? It was a forgettable performance but it wasn’t the tragedy people are making it out to be. And regardless of how mundane his band is, Adam is fucking hot.

    Trump / US politics thread 🚽

    While I’ve never been the biggest fan of Nancy Pelosi, I have to say, I’m impressed with her grit and how masterfully she played Trump. Finally, after nearly 4 years of him plowing over his rivals with name calling and tweets and using the right wing media mega phone, he got beaten BADLY and out maneuvered beautifully by her. She is having none of this guys bullshit and has proven to be the only person to make him look like the sniveling, thin skinned, loser that he is. I’m looking forward to seeing how their dynamic plays out while she’s Speaker. So far so good, Nancy. You keep dog walking that motherfucker.

    Trump / US politics thread 🚽

    Nah. The Republican base is completely wrapped around his fingers. He rules them with an iron fist. They’re terrified of crossing him because they’ll more than likely garner a primary opponent in their next election. Or face his wrath on Twitter. I was naive to think his own party would keep him in check legislatively. Not even a little bit have they quelled this monsters impulsive and wreak-less behavior. If anything, there are those in congress who fan his worst tendencies. It’s a fantasy to think Mueller’s report will be this saving grace and all of sudden get republicans to grasp their pearls. If they haven’t done it by now, nothing is going to turn the tide.

    Jesus CHRIST. What a cheap piece of political theater. You’re telling me there wasn’t a single restaurant, catering business, or chef that would’ve gladly obliged to feeding a sports team visiting the White House? And the way he says he had to pay of this on his own. Despicable and disgusting. Every single week it’s a new low.

    Troye Sivan

    He’s pretty fucking great. Bloom has definitely grown on me since the first listen. And while I rank it as one of my top 10 albums of last year, I still find Blue Neighborhood superior to be the better album. Bloom has one too many ballads on it for my liking. I think it could have used another bop like My, My, My. Overall, I wholeheartedly agree, he is absolutely one of the best pop stars out right now. When you compare him to the garbage that IS out there right now, that statement leans towards a fact rather than an opinion. And he’s certainly the best MALE pop star out there by a country mile. He deserves far more mainstream success than he’s received. But, alas, America only loves their gays to be like Will from Will & Grace. Gay and fun and straight looking, but rue the day when they start wearing makeup and heels and are too fem for Nebraska.

    Trump / US politics thread 🚽

    I wish the democrats would be a little more jubilant with their wins last week. The whining that they didn't run the tables in every race is ridiculous. They were NEVER going to have a blowout election with the cult like mentality Trump supporters. They believe EVERYTHING and ANYTHING he says and will vote for whomever he tells them to vote for even if it means voting against their own personal interests. I get the losses in Florida, Georgia, and Texas were quite painful. I was pretty disappointed that Stacey Abrams, Beto O'Rourke, and Andrew Gillum lost. But taking back the house by almost 40 seats and winning back 7 governorship's is nothing to sulk about. Plus, Dem's are sending over ONE HUNDRED WOMEN to the U.S House. That's HUGE. On top of the diversity that was elected and the ballot proposals that won, I'm cautiously optimistic that maybe, JUST MAYBE, he can be defeated in 2 years. Plus, how glorious it will be to see Nancy Pelosi sitting directly behind that piece of shit during the next State of The Union address in January.

    Heart

    I searched for a thread to celebrate one of the all time best rock groups EVER. Heart. I couldn't find one, so here we go. Any fans?? I saw them a few years ago and was BLOWN AWAY by how good Nancy Wilson still sounds. I mean, seriously. She is an absolute force of nature. The entire arena shook when she hit some of those notes. I just love everything about them. Top songs: Magic Man Crazy On You These Dreams Never Alone Will You Be There (In The Morning) Stranded Gah, such a stellar discography!

    We have a sitting U.S President that's calling a porn star he allegedly had an affair with, Horseface, on Twitter. Let that sink in for a second.

    Kanye West

    That 'meeting' with Donald Trump was a disgusting display of narcissism by two alpha males with bloated egos. It looked like a Minstrel Show. A sad and pathetic display that showcased just how low our politics have become.

    Heart

    This performance of Stairway to Heaven is absolutely brilliant. She's probably the only person who could even attempt to sing a song like this and she did it to perfection. You could see how moved Jimmy Page was just watching it.

    2019 Rock & Roll Hall of Fame

    It's abominable that Stevie Nicks isn't in there for her solo work. She's an absolute trail blazer and all around rock GODDESS. Roxy Music, the Cure, Chaka Khan, LL Cool J. And what about Donna fucking Summer? I don't believe she's in there. Another glaring absence.

    I know this song is cheesy as all hell. But it always makes me bop my head.

    Westlife confirms reunion

    I only know of that one SAPPY song, Swear It Again. I don't think they had anything else that was remotely close to being a hit here in the states but that one song. It will always remind me of my first sexual encounter with a boy when I lived in California. I will never forget. The beginning of this song came on as he was starting to go down on me. What a song to have immortalized in my head for all eternity.

    Trump / US politics thread 🚽

    He did. He sounded like a modern day Trumpian Republican and was giving a performance aimed at ONE crowd and one crowd only: Fox News and Trump himself. And he succeeded in a spectacular fashion. After this pitiful, whiny, performance, what happened? Every single MAN on that judiciary committee RUSHED to his side. Defended him. Lashed out at the Democrats. Screamed and stomped their feet. He set the tone and they fell in line. It was a disgusting display of patriarchal domination and white male rage that will probably get him on the Supreme Court. They WANT him on the Court now more than ever. Because he will have an ax to grind. He will move so far to the right on ANY and EVERY progressive cause brought before him. It's a horrifying prospect.

    Favorite Original Movie Scores

    I've always loved the them from the Exorcist. It's a gorgeous piece of music. Tori Amos would include snippets of this on tour year ago. I think she still does it to this day.

    New NIKE campaign caused controversy

    He's a beautiful human being. The attacks on him are absolutely disgraceful. I never in my life thought I'd witness such outward racism towards someone that's played out on a national stage. That's PERPETUATED and ENCOURAGED by a sitting U.S President. I hang my head in shame lower and lower every day with what is going on in this country.

    Favorite Original Movie Scores

    I mean, Jurassic Park is just epic. That score sent chills down my spine as a kid when I first heard it and still transports me to the theatre where I first saw it when I was 10 years old. And of course these are ICONIC.

    It was also predicted that Hillary was going to win. We all know how accurate that was.
