Say It/Never Be Like You by Flume (feat Tove Lo & Kai)

tcr! · May 22, 2017 at 11:46 am

Peeps, here’s your Flume jam for Monday.

Flume is the best and this is best + 1 since it’s two of my most fave songs spliced together.

  1. Tove Lo on Say It … “speak it like a real freak”
  2. Kai on Never Be Like You … “tell me everything’s okay”

And it’s live. If I could sing like either Tove Lo or Kai I would. All the time. And you’d get sick of it.

And lastly, if you’d dont have Flume’s Skin disc you’re missing out.

Would it be rude to tell the neighbor to park his fleet somewhere else? 🤔

He’s got six cars in the cul-de-sac alone and three more by his garage in the alley.

Hey (Live) by Pixies

tcr! · May 21, 2017 at 3:17 pm

With Maggie being gone today and the March 2017 magazine off to the printer, the only logical thing for me to do was not cut the grass but to work on the April 2017 issue.

But with me being me and the Internet being rabbit holes, I got sucked into watching Pixie videos. So without further ado, here’s your said-the-lady-to-the-man-she-adored Sunday jam.

I love everything about this song. That it’s live. That it’s haunting. That each instrument has its own unique voice and place. The jangling acoustic guitar. The wailing lead guitar riffs. The clean, round bass carrying the mix. The drum taps that come in about 1:36 and the bass still holding the melody. Ain’t no choice but to nod and sway to the groove.

And of course the lyrics. “If you go, I will surely die. We’re chained.” When I listen, the lyrics surely seem to be written by way of experience. Sang with that same emotion, too.

HEY!

Kim Deal’s backing “chained” — same thing. With her head titled slightly around 1:16, she looks innocently and sincerely desperate.

“Been trying to meet you” — okay, that was me up and down the street as a teenager. I’ll deny it though.

And I’ve always wondered who Mary was but I never wanted to find out.

PS- Whenever I recorded music I generally wanted the rhythm guitar to be acoustic. Pixies are the reason why.

The people who have worked with Joan have some stories to tell. I am glad I am not famous. I have behaved in ways I’m not proud of.

Maggie and have watched too many episodes of The Office and I ate too much pizza and too many Hot Tamales. Well, I don’t know if anyone can have too many Hot Tamales. 🤔

Emoji for Android O Preview 2

tcr! · May 19, 2017 at 2:11 pm

Android O Preview 2 emojis

Gallery: All of Android O’s totally revamped emoji

One big surprise was the total overhaul of Android’s emoji. Nearly every emoji has been redrawn in a new style, and all of the yellow “blob” face designs are gone. The new emoji all get better 3D shading and generally end up with a design a lot closer to what you’d get on iOS. We have dutifully chronicled every new emoji in the gallery above.

I still think Apple’s are the best. The ones above look like they were done by teenagers and that’s pretty much doing that age group a disservice. Still better than the gumdrops for Preview 1 though.

Have a look at the current Face Blowing a Kiss emoji comparison for the various tech giants.

I cringe every time I use Facebook Messenger and see their emoji set in action. It’s horrible. They don’t even look round to me with that quarter moon orange shadow. And then the Firefox set remind me of babies.

Ya, I know…everybody’s a critic.
