Nothing fancy really
I work for Uniqlo so my wardrobe is full of UT T-shirts (I fucks hard with these) and some basics. And a few bits from Zara
Yoooo are you based in London? I swear I might have seen you the other day (can’t remember your user name but if you are who I think, we met with Aaron & Kenna that time) and if so I work in the same building (the Uniqlo reference triggered my memory, thought I recognised you in a lift 😂） - if that’s the case then wow it’s a small world...
@Mavis I have heard this theory but I don't know if I buy it. Jai seems to be a very skilled pianist and his productions have always been super crazy. His brother seems to be a very skilled guitarist but his stuff is very rooted in traditional soul music. They seem a lot less crazy. The second and tenth songs on the leak are two of the most radical pop songs I have ever heard in my entire life and I don't know if any of his brother's stuff is as crazy.
There’s been so much ‘finally a black superhero’ stuff which is... nice but really disingenuous.
Wesley Snipes played Blade 20 years ago!
Funny thing about that is the success of Blade led to X-Men getting green lit, which led to Spiderman, (Ang Lee’s) Hulk and then to this whole Marvel Cinematic Universe and superhero wave we have today.
It’s odd that in trying to validate this as ‘a black breakthrough’ the press are simultaneously burying the achievements of another true black breakthrough.
Funnier still is Wesley actually wanted to make a Black Panther film! All through the 90’s. Blade happened when he couldn’t get that off the ground. History is funny sometimes.
my favorite snare as to be the 99-early 00s
been listening to kelis first album and it hits so hard.
i like his brush snares and his percussion snares are tight (like the one in what happened to that boy) mr.me too
Wow! Great topic. I agree with @Mavis and I'll use Stevie Wonder as an example. The waltz of his lyrics w/ music has produced dozens and dozens timeless records. Not just songs, but like entire albums of timeless work. The ability to say a lot without saying much, mastering of simplicity and cleverness surrounded by chords or tones and textures pleasing to the sonics. So many songs that you hear nowadays that were hits or summer anthems that I can't bare to listen to ever again. I also refer to timeless records as Homecooked Meals versus like Fast-Food type of songs trendy songs. Both are feeding you, but there's a distinctive flavor and love that you can taste in food prepared w/ care, as opposed to quick and on the go type of burger or something.
You can't compare timeless music with my homecooked meals. But yes, great anology!
