    How low can Boris and his cronies go. Australia’s ex PM Tony Abbott being the front runner as the “trade advisor” for Brexit. He recently advised that all nations should stop lockdowns and let nature take it’s course with elderly people. He campaigned against same sex marriage, is a passionate climate change denier and a well known misogynist.  

    Another white middle aged man being rewarded for his prior and established incompetence by the boys club. Take as old as time sadly.

    Hes literally the worst.

  2. I don’t hate the vocoder effect but I can be picky with it. Some songs it feels like an extremely natural fit and is part of the sonic landscape.

    Other times I find it too muffled, particularly on Future and in parts of GC. I know that was an artistic choice so accept it but would prefer if the lyrics got a chance to resonate clearly, vocoder or not.

    Batuka is one of my faves on the album but I have found myself wondering what it would sound like with less vocoder and perhaps in a deeper register... something like the demo of Its So Cool. 

    I agree with what someone suggested earlier with using less effects live. I think to the casual listener they just think she’s miming. She posted an IG clip or story a while back of Batuka being rehearsed and she was using her lovely deeper live vox so hopefully we get to hear more of that.

    So here's what I think.......VOGUE was PERFECTION and a great opener...but I do feel she needed either HUNG UP, INTO THE GROOVE, EXPRESS YOURSELF or MUSIC in there...either as a closer or between god Control and I rise......this crowd was here for a PARTY and a CELEBRATION.....YES! I agree she's a freedom fighter..and she has a message...and i'm all for EVERYTHING she stands for....but she needed a PUNCH in there......a real PARTY pleaser.......just to remind everybody how much they adore her....and leave them wanting more.....

    So all in all i feel this setlist was missing one more crowd pleasing spectacular number....

    What do you think?

    Agree completely. Music as a closer would have rounded it off perfectly, plus it’s another Mirwais song so would have fit well.

    I don’t see how this doesn’t win Video of the year at MTV and the Grammys.  I mean, isn’t it objectively better than ANY video by ANYONE in years?!

    I’m not sure they’ll acknowledge her but at this point it’s unnecessary. People who want gun control are applauding the video, from Ive seen on social media. That’s what will stick.

  5. I’m not sure I’ve ever really found AL political. The video obviously but for me the song was more about her own introspection and where she was currently at in her life after 20 years of fame. To me it doesn’t fit Pride and actually feels ham fisted.

    She has the potential to cause a gay implosion with simply four songs from a catalogue of 36 years so her choices strike me as odd.

    im fine with I Rise... it’s suitable and I hope it’s the one she begins with.

    Ideally I wish she was doing 10 songs... starting with serious and contemplative, building to joy and hope. Just like the last 50 years of the gay movement. If that were the case then sure, throw in Future.

    IMO it’s a disappointing set of song choices however I’m not going to throw in my Stan card over it. I would have loved a Live8 moment... I don’t see this resonating with the crowd though and gaining her any new or younger fans. A longer and more thought out set list may have had that potential.

    Sorry if I’ve been a Debbie Downer!

    I wonder what would it be like to listen in this order... 


    I presume this was the order the songs were written/recorded... hence no Medellin at this stage
