What The Fuck Have You Been Listening To This Summer?

This is a list of the music I've enjoyed this summer. It's not all new music. Some of it is. There is not an order to it. Please tell me what the fuck you have been listening to.

The-Dream - Love vs. Money This album has singles inside of its singles. I'm so fucking smitten with the entire album. It's going to find its way onto my top 10 list for the year, no doubt. The production is very elaborate but classy -- nowhere near the gaudy production many R&B or Hip Hop albums have been riddled with lately. Top shelf shit. And I'm so fucking close to saying that The-Dream has out Kells'd Kells. Anyway, there is no excuse for not owning this album. Why this entire album has not got front to back play, beats the fuck out of me.


Love Vs Money

Drake - "Best I Ever Had" A lot of people have been complaining that they have heard this song too many times this summer on the radio, but that is fucking bullshit. "You da you da best" is not the same sentiment as "You da fuckin' best / You da fuckin' best." And also, "She call me the referee cause I be so official / My shirt ain't got no stripes but I can make yo pussy whiiiiiistle." Just sayin' -- you should probably get this song soon before your sad-ass summer is over.


Best I Ever Had - Drake

Jay-Z feat. Kanye & Rihanna - "Run This Town" Okay, everyone's hatin' on Hov sayin' Ye killed it on this one -- outdid Jigga. I'm just gonna go out on a limb and say that Jay-Z destroys this track. He knows what he is doing. He knows he's not an "up and comer." He's a "has that, knows that, does that." Kanye can keep the RAV4 line. It's clever, yeah, and I'm not saying he doesn't deserve some recognition for the surprisingly witty verses he's been dropping lately (the "beasting off the riesling" line is fucking dope), but Hov owns it with the repetition. Stamps it. It's a reiteration of his best-ness. He lets you know from the get go "We are / Yeah I said it / We are" -- then he just throws it all in one basket "All black everything / Black cards, black cars / All black everything" -- "Run This Town" is not a rap, it's a fucking proclamation. It's just a reminder to us. All black everything? That's all I need to know.


Run This Town (ft. Kanye West & Rihanna) - Jay-Z

Rob Roy - King Warrior Magician Lover "Pussy in my lap / bird in the sack/ fur in my cap" This album has all kinds of *new and hot* written all over it. Not sure if Rob Roy was shooting for avant-garde, but with this album he has carved out a new corner of hip hop that I'm happy to wander into. He requires your rapt attention, but fear not, this shit is fucking compelling.


Fur In My Cap - Rob Roy

Roy Orbison - "Crying" I made a conscious decision to revisit this song in a certain state on 6/4/2009 and I have been listening to it throughout the summer with mixed results. Sometimes when I hear it I kind of cry and sometimes when I hear it I just enjoy the idea of Roy Orbison and his amazing voice.


Crying - Roy Orbison

Slim Thug - "Thug" I think this song has changed my view on what I want in my life. Since I started listening to this song I've decided that I want a flat screen TV and a Range Rover. This song has been pretty good for me. I don't think the song mentions a flat screen TV or a Range Rover, but the beat implies a flat screen TV and a Range Rover. This song made me want to visit Houston, too.


Thug - Slim Thug

Flo Rida - "Right Round" I don't really care what any of you say. This song almost made me dance out of a movie theater when it was playing during the credits the other day. I don't think I have ever done that. It is so fucking well paced and the vocals are well placed. I feel really good when I hear this song. The chorus makes me especially happy. I like the vocal modulation in the chorus "From the top of the pole I watch her go (vocals drop down at least a step) down / She's got me throwin' my money a (vocals drop down at least a step) round" I don't know. Love it.


Right Round-Flo Rida.mp3 - Flo Rida

Japandroids - Post-Nothing I feel like this is the most earnest noise rock album I've ever heard. Lyrics like "We run the gauntlet / must get to France / so we can French kiss some French girls" (Wet Hair) and "We used to dream / now we worry about dying ///// I don't wanna worry about dying / I just wanna worry about those sunshine girls" (Young Hearts Spark Fire) I don't know, maybe I've watched too many Jean-Luc Godard movies in the past year, but every time I hear "French girl" or "sunshine girls" in this album I just think of Anna Karina. And fuck, how bad can an album be if it constantly conjures Anna Karina?


Post-Nothing

Pistol Camera

The following research is a 16mm camera like a joke.
This camera is a serious camera for the police, and not a toy.
It is a pistol camera DORYU 2-16 famous as rare and valuable camera.
The DORYU 2-16 has the same C mount as the 16mm movie camera.
A Cine-Nikkor 25mm F1.4 lens was able to be mounted in the DORYU 2-16 pistol camera.
You can find the small lens for GOLDECK 16 on the table.
A sniper who has the pistol is Ryu Koakimoto-san.
