Trump’s henchmen and women carry the stench of the Satanic Cheese Doodle

From NBC News here:

WASHINGTON — White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said Saturday she was booted from a Virginia restaurant because she works for President Donald Trump, becoming the latest administration official to experience a brusque reception in a public setting.

Sanders tweeted that she was told by the owner of the Red Hen in Lexington, Virginia, that she had to “leave because I work for @POTUS and I politely left.”

I don’t want to violate the norms of civility so enthusiastically advocated by the New York Times but that bitch can fuck herself.

I hope her lying lungs collapse.

Best of 2017 Pick 7

Dona Onete: Banzeiro (Mais Um Discos, 2017)

If you took the spirit of the lead singer from the Pogues and put him into the body of an almost 80 year old Brazilian woman and then put her in front of band that is more like a Colombian cumbia band than Brazilian Bossa nova and it would sound like this record.

It’s a party record with a great balance of energy and the weight the limited range of Onete’s gruff voice brings.  She’s awesome.

I have no idea what the lyrics are about and I could care less, it’s a great set of tunes with a great spirit.  Check it out

 

Music for 6/22/18!!! Arianne Grande, Physique, Lily Allen, Beyonce and Jay Z

@@@ Arianne Grande: a light is coming (Republic, 2018) A pre-release single for Disney snowflake Arianne Grande with an intro rhyme from Nicki Minaj. If you want some toughness on your track, dial 1-800-NickiMM! I tell you this with the experience of listening to thousands and thousands and thousands of tracks I have no idea what this track is about. There is a vocal sample ‘you wouldn’t let anybody speak and instead’ that goes circular in various volumes through the WHOLE track and there is a vocal hook ‘a light is coming to give back everything the darkness stole’ but I have no idea how those two things go together or what it may or may not mean. The verse gets brisk but I can’t glean any meaning off that either. So there ya go, it doesn’t have to make sense, it would be nice if it did, but it’s a flavor pack from a mainstream ‘artist’.

@@@ Physique: This Punk Life is shit (Iron Lung, 2018) A full on wall of guitar buzz on a hardcore punk record I saw in the loud section of the CFUV weekly playlist email. Regular readers know that I’m super open to anti-social expression as being cathartic but the buzz and high end on this record hurts my ears. Nice punk rockers wouldn’t do this to me. I’m sure this is full on ripping live but I can’t roll with it, I need my ears and shit!

@@@ Lily Allen: No Shame (Warner, 2018) Sort of the British equivalent to Arianne Grande. I got to this record via the Guardian’s best records of 2018 thus far. I can say that the songs here make more sense than the pre release single from Arianne Grande. It dabbles in some non pop sounds and while the music is more coherent, I don’t find this to be a particularly interesting collection. As with the Beyonce and Jay Z music I’ve been peeping over the past week you have to be involved with these musicians as people to find their music engaging. It’s a lifestyle package which has nothing to do with music. I love the Guardian but just another example of poor mainstream journalistic music reviewing.

@@@ Beyonce & Jay Z: Nice (Sony Music, 2018) Speaking of which let’s keep enduring this record! It opens with the repeating hook ‘I can do anything!’ and the Jay Z comes with his trip. It’s a boasting song with typical references to their incredible wealth — by the way why is it hip for Beyonce and Jay Z to flaunt their wealth but it’s disgusting for Trump to do the same? It’s ill and typically American to flaunt wealth regardless of color, naimsayin’? I find Jay Z’s rhymes more interesting than Beyonce’s here but it is their collective self-absorption that drives this record.

However, racist ass Bloomberg will only support shitbirds like himself

From the New York Times:

Michael R. Bloomberg, the former mayor of New York City, will throw his personal fortune behind the Democratic campaign to take control of the House of Representatives.

I had the misfortune of enduring three terms of El Shrimpo von Bloompants and his stop and frisk bullshit, his persecution of bikers, his generally classist bullshit.

And let’s remember he overturned rules in place to get that third term because we needed him so badly.

This is no solution to the problems we have as Bloomberg looks great on the surface but there’s much bullshit and ill bitch nonsense as soon as he opens his mouth.

Music for 6/20/18!!! Matt Anderson Quartet, Uniform and the Body, Debby Friday

@@@ Matt Anderson Quartet: Rambling (Jellymould Jazz, 2018) I got to this straight jazz record via the London Jazz blog. The first tune is regal with a three horn intro before it goes full band with piano, bass and drums added to the tune. It builds to a climax, a pretty one, everybody’s hair remains in the same place. The second tune brings on the smooth jazz guitar. I’ve listened to parts of three tunes and it’s midtempo playing with an emphasis on being pretty and what I call meaningful playing. It’s slow and serious and unfolds slowly and effortlessly like a flower. Not really my thing as I love the messy shit but if you have a job and you’ve had a long week and your looking for some comfort jazz this could work for you.

@@@ Uniform & The Body: Mental Wounds Not Healing (Sacred Bones, 2018) I got a publicist email and saw this record on the CFUV weekly playlist email in the loud section so there ya go. Every year there is a heavy record for NPR listeners who might want something a bit rough but they don’t crave a solid beat down. Thus far this first tune is a slightly more aggro Nine Inch Nails and personally I thought the Nine Inch Nails dude was kind of a soft punk bitch. Let’s peep more. It’s not a metal record, it’s a dark electronic record with a lot of static and processed vocals that make the singer sound like a degraded sex slave. The third tune gets into some spilly power chords but alas I think this is indeed for the NPR heavy listeners. No methed out tempos, not full on freakshow. It’s not bad it’s just not enough for me.

@@@ Debby Friday: Bitch Punk (Self-released, 2018) Also off this week’s CFUV playlist email. I think Debby Friday might have more balls in her pants than the total testicle count of all the musicians in the previous two releases. Ms. Friday brings some aggro beats with fat synth bass pulses and she goes off on the microphone. Plenty of skitter, plenty of fatness, plenty of attitude. On the third tune she gets into some rough drum machine play with some distortion crushing and crusting up the proceedings. When it gets to full blast on this tune, Indulge Me, she has whipped herself and you quite a nice shitty. Nice work maam, show ’em how to do it.
