A mod can switch the year if they get here but B's late.

Not sure what to think about that video tbh; song's great though.

is there something very nasal to the "I got hot sauce in my bag swag" line?

maybe a reference I'm not getting, maybe I just have a cold and I'm projecting

niels, Thursday, 11 February 2016 20:47 (three years ago) Permalink

this is obviously just me but the way beyoncé delivers some of the lines in this song reminds me of jt's verse in "shades"

Whoops. Forgot that I drunkenly comedy-modded this thread title over the weekend. Fixed now.

My 11-yr-old son has been hounding me ever since the Super Bowl about going to see B on tour. "I've never even been to a concert!," he pleads. So guess who's going to Atlanta on May 1? (I love that a Beyonce show will be a big father-son bonding moment.)

just saw more police boycott bullshit on CNN in the kitchen at work, fuckin idiots

robbie ca$hflo (upper mississippi sh@kedown), Wednesday, 24 February 2016 20:50 (three years ago) Permalink

i'm taken aback by all of this, i honestly thought people were more professional in doing their jobs, but this boycott thing is ridiculous, dangerous, and anti-free speech.

the people making the calls on these boycotts, do they think these actions will improve relations between the police and the community?

boycotting a popular singer for political reasons is bullshit. serve and protect motherfuckers.

i suspect they don't care

also part of this is CNN needs bullshit to talk about 24/7 and even our man trump can only do so much in a day

it's on HBO right now. i'm sure the movie will start getting bootlegged online soon enough too. i hope the album is dropping in the next few days because it'd be silly to preview every song in the movie without giving people a chance to buy the audio ASAP.

the mix on 713 is really annoying, it gets super-quiet when Bey's part starts (maybe it's mixed better on Tidal, haha).

Lemonade's now on Spotify, with a demo of what eventually became "Sorry" appended at its end (and which is possessed of a lot less braggadocio and a lot more vulnerability than the final track - it's closer in sound to "Love Drought" or something her sister might make)

I would love to know why Rebirth Brass Band doesn't get any publishing for the two songs that she uses parts from 'Do Whatcha Wanna' on (the opening and Single Ladies)

Oh. After digging, it turns out Rebirth lifted that trombone line from a Con Funk Shun track. Goddamnit, brass bands. Too bad she didn't throw in the melody.

the film is cool. i went in pretty neutral/not in the mood to watch it but it was obviously a fantastic show and they captured it perfectly.

Squeaky Fromage (VegemiteGrrl), Wednesday, 24 April 2019 04:42 (four weeks ago) Permalink

Now that a quick google search returns at least five articles on the cultural references in Homecoming, and they all start with New Orleans and Rebirth, I'm mad again. The bassline in 'Single Ladies' should have gotten some writing credit for sure.

Obviously the show is amazing, and it's great to see Les Twins on stage (even though they never really get to do their thing, but it's a Beyonce show I get it).

change display name (Jordan), Wednesday, 24 April 2019 15:59 (four weeks ago) Permalink

the straight up documentary parts of the film are wonderful, i even managed to convert something beyoncé said into good writing advice for myself, but i kinda hope 1) there's a physical release 2) it includes a version of the show without breaks
