OK, is this the worst piece of music writing ever?

can we start one of these for weed writing

What name evokes so much? That of a world leader, a humanitarian or Nobel laureate? That of a sports legend, inventor, philanthropist or explorer? No. Once thought to be the most simple and humble of plants, it's now believed to be the most complex in Mother Nature’s entire garden. In existence since pre-biblical times, its cross-continent voyage began in Asia thousands of years ago, when a Chinese emperor discovered and unleashed its healing powers. Whether you use the Latin name of science, "cannabis," the U.S. government-imposed name, "mari(h)juana" or the 100-plus slang terms, its scope, breadth and reach is profound.

It is Mother Nature’s Steve Jobs; celestially conceived to meet our bodies' built-in demand.

I feel like "Vichy LA Weekly hires" is a separate category all of its own

The cannabis industry has its own "F" word. Instead of the letter "F," the letter is "H," and the word is "high."

Loving that LA Times piece

Friday’s set offered a mix-and-match roll of contemporary rock varietals. Lemony new wave. Cherry-flavored ballads. Pineapple pop songs. Lime rockers.

two months pass...

This feature reads like it was begrudgingly written as a favor to someone:

In Carly Rose’s knockout of a debut single, this sly young pop singer describes her burning desire to disappear with somebody from an overcrowded gathering.

“I don’t want to dance, so just finish your Bacardi,” she moans over the creeping, bottom-heavy groove of “Birds & Bees,” which came out last month and quickly racked up nearly a quarter-million streams on Spotify and YouTube. And just before she rhymes "party" with the name-brand rum, she drops an unprintable modifier — two syllables, starts with F — to show how serious she is about leaving.

I checked out the song; it’s a few degrees better / more interesting than the description makes it sound, IMO (another failure of the writing).
