Migos’ “Bad and Boujee” just hit No. 1 on the charts

  • Donald Glover thanked Migos for making “Bad and Boujee” in his Golden Globes speech — a day later the song is skyrocketing.
  • Migos is No. 1 on the pop charts, its very first chart-topping record, an accolade it has deserved to occupy for years. Astoundingly, it’s also legendary producer Metro Boomin’s first No. 1 as well. 
  • Both artists have had to watch handfuls of other artists rise, using some of the innovations they helped introduce into hip-hop’s current wave. 
  • Raindrop. Drop top. Justice has been served on the pop charts. Read more

The Death of Takashi Shirogane

Idk I reckon the “if I don’t make it out of here” line from the fake s2 trailer was just Shiro messing around?? Like

Shiro: *slips on spilt food goo* *clutches hand to chest, other arm draped dramatically over his head*
Shiro: Keith, if I don’t make it out of here, I want you to lead voltron
Keith: *Kneels by Shiro’s side* *daintily wipes fake tears* I won’t leave you here Takashi we need you
Pidge: *steps over Shiro without even looking*

Born Today, December 5, in 1901 Legendary Producer Walt Disney…

“It’s kind of fun to do the impossible.” - Walt Disney

So many marvelous movies and characters! Not to mention all the wonderful and magical Disneyland rides – and fond childhood memories :) Mickey Mouse, Donald Duck, Goofy… Snow White, Cinderella, Alice in Wonderland, Peter Pan, Lady and the Tramp, Pinocchio, Dumbo, Bambi, Mary Poppins, Flubber, Pollyanna, Ugly Dachshund, Old Yeller, Jungle Book, That Darn Cat… I’m running out of room here :)

Alright listen up you little shits

You remember this guy:

Yeah that motherfucker Russell T. Davies…who gave you this:

And this:

Which lead to this:

Yeah, him, well he has a new show…

Well three new shows…cross-platform… TV and online… and yet again the cheeky bastards made it about sex, sexuality, love, dating…

“Banana, Cucumber and Tofu, are three interlinked shows that explore 21st century gay life in all it’s powerful, witty, dark and uplifting guises ”

HELL FUCKING YES.

And this time the ladies don’t miss out… look at that diverse as fuck casting:

With a majority female producers, the legendary Murray Gold on music, and direction from Euros freaking Lyn and Alice freaking Troughton.  Plus Sue “The Great British Bake Off” Perkins is writing for it.

“The joy of Banana is in the beautiful, charming, witty and sometimes heart breaking stories of a wide variety of characters, be they gay, lesbian, transgender or anything in-between,” explains Davies. “The fact we have a bunch of brilliant and wildly talented young people in it, and making it, will give it even more bite and an exciting edge.”

BASICALLY MAKE SURE YOU WATCH HIS SHIT WHEN IT STARTS 22ND JANUARY.

Former Warner Bros. Records Executive Jeff Gold describes a few fond memories of working with Prince in the early 90’s

“I first met Prince in early 1991. Uncharacteristically, Prince had been open to feedback about his forthcoming album, Diamonds and Pearls, from Warner Bros. chairman Mo Ostin and president Lenny Waronker (himself a legendary record producer) and I believe sr. vp’s of a&r Benny Medina and Michael Ostin. When finished, many at the label felt it had great potential.

I was WB’s new senior vp of creative services, responsible for the art department and much of marketing, and when I saw Prince’s proposed album cover—a tight close up of his face, with two fingers in front of his lips, and his tongue sticking out between them, I thought it was kind of…ridiculous.

Since the album was a major priority for the company, I went to Mo and Lenny with my concerns. They suggested I have a meeting with Prince, and so Benny Medina, who worked closely with Prince, set one up. I was a major Prince fan, having seen him on Purple Rain tour and a few other times, and while I knew of his difficult reputation, figured ‘what have I got to lose?’ What followed was surely the most difficult meeting of my career.

Benny’s office was dark and sort of cave-like, with no windows. I entered to find Benny at his desk and Prince sitting in the middle of a couch, with the obvious spot for me a couch opposite Prince. There was no small talk, then or ever, with Prince. Benny got to the point, introducing me and telling Prince that I wasn’t particularly fond of his album cover concept.

Just as Benny finished delivering the bad news, there was a knock on the door, and Benny’s attorney stuck in his head. He needed Benny right away. Benny left, and I was alone with Prince, in full hair, makeup, and clothed like he was about to take the stage (as he always was), sitting about 5’ across from me, not particularly happy. In hindsight, I’m not sure anybody at Warners had ever offered up a negative opinion about his album artwork. He’d earned the right to call the shots, and expected to do so. But still, that photo was so…weird.

We had an hour or more of very difficult semi-conversation, mostly about what I thought he might do instead. Prince had enormous charisma, knew it, and knew how to use it. He also knew how to use silence and pauses in conversation to intimidate people, and he did a great job with me. I spoke respectfully and generally about why I thought a different image might be better. He glared. At one point, he asked with incredulity ‘What do you want me to do, wear overalls like R.E.M.?’ A bit later he said ‘Maybe I should have some clothes made for you’. I was wearing jeans and a button up shirt; he was wearing lime green skin-tight pants, high-heel boots, and a day-glo green, pin-striped, see-through shirt.

After one pause, he said ‘show me some album covers you’ve done.’ I ran upstairs to my office and collected about 20 cd’s I’d worked on, most from my previous job at A&M Records. He looked at each one, saying something dismissive about it, until near the bottom of the pile, he saw a holographic limited edition package I’d worked on for Suzanne Vega’s album Days of Open Hand (which I’d won an art direction Grammy for.) ‘Now this is great’ he said. Why can’t I have a hologram?’

Ah, finally a potential break. A few weeks earlier I’d met with a salesman for a company with a new, much less expensive hologram technology. I told Prince about it, and he perked up a bit. I promised to follow up and get back to him, and the meeting was over.

I pitched the hologram company’s rep –how would you like to introduce your new technology on Prince’s new album cover? Somehow, miraculously, we were able to pull it off, and Diamonds and Pearls was the first mass market CD with a holographic cover.

A few memories: We did a 4 hour hologram shoot at Studio Instrument Rentals (SIR) in Hollywood, where Prince and his two dancers, ‘Diamond’ and ‘Pearl’ sat on a small circular platform. After speaking to the holographer, he decided on an arm motion to perform while a motion picture camera on a dolly shot them in a 180 degree arc. Multiple takes were completed, with a lot of down time. I remember trying to make conversation (near impossible) and asking him about collaborating with Miles Davis (he was pretty dismissive.)

A few days later, I met him at a studio in Hollywood to watch video transfers of the various takes (each a few seconds long.) We chose one pretty quickly, and I was on my way. A few weeks later I got a ‘glass plate’ test hologram, which I thought looked great. Benny and I took it to Larrabee Studios, where Prince was recording. When he saw it, he loved it—and I think I detected a bit of a thaw. Progress!

Our next encounter was probably the highlight of my music business career. Benny and I went to see Prince at SIR, where he was rehearsing his band; I think it was to show him the first actual stamped hologram samples. He was very happy with what he saw, and asked what we were doing after we left. We said something to the extent of ‘going back to the office’, and he pointed to an old funky couch and suggested we sit down, alongside two Dutch journalists who were writing a story. We did, and Prince proceeded to rehearse his set, with full band, for about an hour, for the four of us. We were maybe 10 feet in front of him. It was the most extraordinary thing I’ve ever seen. As I reflect on it now, I think he may have been sort of saying ‘nice work on the hologram. Now take a look at what I can do’.

When he finally saw the finished album cover, he was thrilled and sent me this note. His assistant told mine that she’d never seen him send a thank you note, ever. I’d passed the test.

From then on, he never gave me any grief. That’s not to say it was always easy. But as we continued to work together, I understood that Prince was driven by a relentless pursuit of perfection. He knew exactly what he wanted. He did things his own way, and that worked for him. The word “no” didn’t exist in Prince’s world. If you told him ‘no’, he’d move on and find somebody else who would give him a ‘yes’. The absolute worst thing you could say to him is “but everybody else does it this way.”

Prince knew exactly how talented he was, had supreme self-confidence, and saw no reason to settle for anything less than his vision. And you had to respect him for it. Nobody worked harder than Prince. He was a perpetual motion machine, exploding with creativity.”

Production I.G, the legendary producers of “Ghost in the Shell” and “Psycho-Pass” are bringing you the epic LINE Webtoon series, Noblesse.

(Submission)

Nerd Here: To quickly address this convo, I’m just gonna say that I know that Bruno is a good man, he’s not an angel, but he’s still a good man. Just because he’s following a girl on instagram that automatically means that he’s attracted to her? What kind of crazy and warped logic is that? Since she’s Jimmy Jam’s daughter, and Bruno knows Jimmy, and plus Jimmy is a LEGENDARY producer who worked with Janet Jackson, Michael Jackson, The Time, Prince, Mariah Carey etc. Bruno is probably following the daughter just to be nice. Why would Bruno want some teen when there’s literally billions of other women all around the world to choose from? And didn’t we already came to the conclusion that Bruno prefers older women? And even if Bruno dates someone younger than him, she will still be an adult, so I don’t know where people are even going with this. With all this talk, all I see is mere gossip and speculation, I don’t see any hardcore facts. We don’t know who Bruno is gonna end up with, only God knows. I just hope that Bruno will find that one special woman that will give him all the love he deserves, who will make him laugh when he’s on the verge of crying, someone that he feels comfortable to talk with about anything. Someone that will be the light of his life. That’s what I want for Bruno, he’s such a good man, he deserves it. I just want to see him be genuinely happy that’s all. I hope it comes for him soon.

Okay so, we got multiple Voltron cartoons and stuff, but what about that TV series in TMNT 2012? Anyone?

You mean Super Robo Mecha Force Five? With Captain Dash Coolstar with a mullet? With a character named Lunk? With Dr. Blip who wears green and has glasses? And a princess?

Nah, don’t know what you’re talking about.

Legendary disco producer Giorgio Moroder has been revealing treats off his forthcoming highly anticipated album, and I can’t help but look forward to each and every unveiling, not only because the tracks feature some amazing guests, but also because they’ve been versatile thrillers. While his Sia collaboration is still one of my favorites, new reveal Diamonds, which features spunky Brit pop sensation Charli XCX, is also a fun and catchy gem. Giorgio pairs a Kraftwerk like dance background with sugary pop melody and Charli XCX’s signaturely sensual and fiesty vocals. Giorgio Moroder’s star studded album, Déjà Vu, will be out June 16th.
