NPR Microphone Check | Earl Sweatshirt: “I’m Grown”

“The 21-year-old spoke with Microphone Check in Austin, Texas, during SXSW a couple days before the release of his second major label album. He says he feels like I Don’t Like S—-, I Don’t Go Outside is really his first album, though. “This is the first thing that I’ve said that I fully stand behind, like the good and the bad of it,” he says. “I’ve never been this transparent with myself or with music. I’ve never been behind myself this much.””

Another fucking awesome Microphone Check with Earl at his most transparent, as he breaks down the journey to his debut album and the experiences that form it’s context.

Truly incredible!

I know that these are really good/classic movies, but I feel like movies like Boyz 2 Men, and Menace to Society puts black people (including men) in a bad light and portrays them to be violent, ghetto, and poor, and I sometimes think that that’s why a lot of people say “oh black on black crime exists” or “black people (or black men) are dangerous”. Now I know that people shouldn’t be basing things off movies, but there are alot of weak minded people out there that judges things off of movies.

Black people were put in a bad light way before those movies came along.

Now that Mitt Romney will not be running for president, he has a lot more time on his hands to start wars with Iran and polish his personal brand by appearing on a slew of late-night television programs. Romney stopped by “The Tonight Show” on Wednesday to participate in Jimmy’s classic “Jimmy in the Mirror” sketch which attempted to make Romney look like a fun-loving, “current” — and most importantly, self-aware — guy. Topics ranged from Zayn quitting One Direction to Hillary Clinton’s email controversy to Uber.

Why “The Arrangements” Is the Quintessential Mad Men Episode

Written by Andrew Colville and series creator Matthew Weiner, and directed by Michael Uppendahl (who has directed many signature episodes), it’s a great example of Mad Men's ability to operate on several different levels and make several different points about many different things, and somehow make them feel coherent without distorting, omitting, truncating, or otherwise mangling any individual element. It hangs together in the manner of some of the best American literary fiction from that period. Expertly shaped and paced, “The Arrangements” just sort of glides along on a vibe, casually deepening some of the show's key themes (including the persistent but low-level fear of death that hangs over every adult character's life, and the profound influence that parents have on our personal development, and their anxiety about that influence) while always seeming as though it's not trying to make or score any particular points, just watching the characters be.
