ol' wobble knees

another legislative banger from our home state

The controversy surrounding lethal injection drugs and their availability intensified following Oklahoma's botched execution of Clayton Lockett, and now Tennessee lawmakers believe they've come up with a solution: electrocution. On Thursday evening, Republican Governor Bill Haslam signed a bill into law allowing the state to electrocute death-row inmates if lethal injection drugs can't be obtained. Eight states allow inmates to choose the electric chair rather than lethal injection, but the new law makes Tennessee the only state where convicts will not have a choice in the matter. (via)
YOU get an electric chair! and YOU get an electric chair!

trend alert?

with the 9th annual international cornhole cup rapidly approaching (june 14, jicyww), i've been brushing up on what the kids are listening to, and i noticed a thing.

this is a new song by jeremih featuring YG, which i shared with you as a potential song of the summer. it features a (pretty loose) sample from 90's clurb anthem "rhythm is a dancer".

this is a new song by kid ink featuring chris brown, and i noticed it sounded pretty much exactly the same. the sample in this one is from the 90's clurb anthem "show me love" by robin s.

the answer to this riddle is that both tracks were produced by some guy named dj mustard, who is clearly phoning it in. you can recognize him by his "mustard on tha beat" calling card. i guess it's not really a trend if it's just one guy repeating the same formula. i hope it catches on though because i'm enjoying the aesthetic.

on a side note: what are the odds that two songs called "show me love" would be released in the same year by people named robin / robyn?

UPDATE: ugh here's another song that sounds exactly the same.

come on, dj mustard.

travelling this weekend?

how far you going?
i received this as part of an email blast and found it to be a great way to waste time.  space is big.  i've only scrolled to jupiter so far.

feeling #blessed that this didn't happen to me

This morning around 9 a.m., a Brooklyn resident boarded the Manhattan bound N train to find close to 50 kids on the car, all armed with recorders. Trapped in some waking nightmare, each station stop passed and the kids remained, playing their recorders the entire time. In total: forty minutes. (via)
you know what it reminds me of?

my boy barry obama was in town today to dedicate the 9/11 museum


Chvrches linked up with Spotify to produce a full video of a concert:
"Live At The Forum, London 14 March 2014"

They make great music, but there always seems to be a problem with their vocals when they do live performances - it tends to be too low and muddled against all the very sharp instruments and samples. But that said they are fun and they have a great lighting design. 

music history lesson

set your dvrs

this is the new show from greys anatomy and scandal creator shonda rhimes. instead of going back and trying to binge watch the first season before the second season starts, why dont we all just agree to watch this one as it comes.

lets talk about the magical creature named conchita wurst

have you ever heard of eurovision? apparently there is this international euro-zone song competition that has been going on since the 1950s. Past winners include ABBA, Celine Dion, and Julio Iglesias. You can sort of think of it like a miss america pageant, but only songs, and each country involved gets a vote. well conchita wurst is this singing queen fron austria who won the contest this year to some controversy. what do we call a fishy queen with a full beard? i vote for catfish.

the boss isn't in today so can i leave now?

think i can sneak on outta here early?

it's (actually) mother's day weekend!!! enjoy that time with your mama. if you don't see her IRL give her a call, because she carried your heavy ass around for 9 long months.

EXACTLY how I feel right now...

could she beeeeeee more over it?

designers: try not to J your Ps over this.

It was called the Graphics Standards Manual, and it was produced for the MTA by Massimo Vignelli and Bob Noorda, two then-unknown designers who worked at Unimark International at the time. A recent New Yorker article about the golden age of corporate identities discussed their manual as one perfect example of the era—concise, utterly practical, and incredibly prescient.
It's unclear how many of these red-covered manuals are still around, but one copy was recently rediscovered by three young designers—Hamish Smyth, Niko Skourtis and Jesse Reed—who work at the NYC graphic design giant Pentagram. As Smyth told me this week, the manual was discovered entirely by accident, as two designers rooted around in Pentagram's basement looking for something else entirely.
"They were searching the basement for a tarpaulin to cover our outdoor foosball table when they stumbled upon the manual at the bottom of a staff locker under a bunch of old gym clothes," Smyth explained. "For graphic designers, this is like stumbling on a first edition Gutenberg Bible. Well, perhaps that is a bad analogy, because graphic designers would also have a hard time containing themselves over that." (via)

Rihanna vs Avril

Apparently people paid $400 bucks for back stage passes to meet Avril Lavigne...and they aren't allowed to touch her. Some Buzzfeed genius decided to compare Avril's meet in greet to our favorite Bs (not that one), Rihanna!

if you listen to How Was Your Week with Julie Klausner, or if you enjoy Billy on the Street with Billy Eichner, you are in good company. Amy Poehler is going to produce a new scripted comedy tv program for USA. in the future you should set your dvr for that so we can talk about it later.

my fave song on the album:

Samuel T. Herring is beginning to remind me of those tangentially related male cousins or uncles that had a burn out of some kind in their youth and are now super sensitive and have a case of "forever heart brokenness." Ya know, they are cool to have a beer with in the garage at thanksgiving but after the second beer the convo starts getting a little too real - extreme political stances - the perfect women who got away - the dreams that are gone and will never return. 

they opened with "Doves"

Does anyone have $18,000 they can lend/give me?

bc there is a Grand Budapest Hotel cruise screening on the Queen Mary 2 with people like Wes Anderson, Tilda Swinton, and Jason Schwartzman. It leaves from New York and ends in London. And they'll probably serve great food and you get to play shuffleboard with Tilda Swinton. The only thing is it costs at minimum $1,200 and maximum like $18k. But it's totally worth it to see this face:
