"You will never need another lover/Cos you’re a milf and I’m a mother[bleep]er." Kanye delivers the remix for Beyonce’s "Drunk in Love". Surfbort.
This photo, captioned ‘Terylene Promotion’ was taken by later famed fashion photographer Helmut Newton, as part if a 1950s gig taking pictures for the Shell oil company of its operations and products. I have no explanation for the fish. It’s the most glamorous apron shot I’ve found in the collection. Courtesy Estate of Helmut Newton and the State Library of Victoria in Melbourne.
‘Rather Be feat. Jess Glynne’ by Clean Bandit
This tune is currently number one in the UK. It’s been #1 for three weeks, which is really uncommon. (The UK charts are weird - most songs bounce up to #1, then bounce back the next week.) It’s a really sweet, uplifting tune, a bit housey and probably the sort of thing that would make Brits feel happy in the midst of a cold, rainy winter.
‘Moustache’ by Twin Twin
This is one of the three songs in the running to be France’s entry for Eurovision this year. It’s super fun, one of those dorky songs that ends up being a Europeans summer hit, at the top of the charts while the rest of the world is listening to Lorde or Katy Perry or Pharrel or whoever. I’m not sure if it will get through (rap is always controversial amid more conservative listeners) but I’d be stoked if it did end up on stage in Copenhagen in May.
‘Legal Tender’ by The B-52’s
In order to properly listen to this song, you must travel back in time to the autumn of 1984, go to your cool boyfriend’s student flat, put this on the record player and sit around with him drinking cheap beers.
for the longest time i thought shoes on a telephone wire was just people getting rid of their old shoes in a cool way
no it means that someone sells drugs nearby
my life is a lie
My dad told me it was how people marked where someone had died on the road. I believed that for *years*.
99% of the time when you see some shoes thrown up on a wire, it’s bored kids, not some sort of drug dealer’s lame marketing attempt. Because think about it - if it truly meant “shoes = drugs”, it would also tell the cops which places to monitor.
