66: It’s Late and I Feel Like Posting About Rap Music

So like the title says: It’s Late and I Feel Like Posting. So basically I’ve been getting really into good rap/R&B music. It’s very uncharacteristic of me. But, I feel like a lot of the industry has changed to I like it a lot more. I’m currently listening to Frank Ocean, a new-to-the-scene rapper who sort of, I wouldn’t say became famous because of this, but he gained some recognition for coming out as gay. Which I guess is still considered a big deal but whatever. It’s not like it makes his music any better. You can still be gay and make awful music.

That is my favorite song of his. I don’t really understand the video all that much but I guess it’s cool.

Another rapped I’ve gotten into is Kendrick Lamar. He’s just. He’s pretty awesome if you ask me.

So this is basically all I wanted to share. I got bit by the writing bug yesterday and wrote a few snippits of things that could turn into something. Who knows. That’s as far as I will go as far as updates are concerned. I’m gonna leave you with one of my favorite new songs:

It gives me great pleasure to read the negative comments about the music I like. But then what’s even better is the comments those negative reviews get. Like “Sorry you’re deaf”, or “you don’t know what good music is” or the seriously disturbed comment-er “YOU STUPID OLD COW YOU GO CRAWL IN A HOLE AND DIE BECAUSE YOU DON’T KNOW ANYTHING ABOUT GOOD MUSIC AND THE WORLD WOULD BE BETTER OFF IF YOU CUT YOURSELF AND THEN HUNG FROM THE RAFTERS BUT YOUR SO FAT THAT THE RAFTERS BROKE AND SO YOU HAVE TO DROWN YOURSELF BECAUSE YOU SUCK AT FINDING GOOD MUSIC!” (that is not an actual review that i know of but i’m sure one like it exists.)

I just find it hilarious how easy it is to set people off just because their favorite band was insulted. YOUR FAVORITE MUSIC ISN’T EVERYONE’S FAVORITE MUSIC (unless of course it’s Justin Bieber, everyone loves him). Whatever, people are just stupid. Get over yourself and realize that it’s not that big of a deal that <3FloRENcE+ThEMAcHiNE<3 isn’t that into Korn. It just doesn’t happen that way, and to get your panties in a wad about it isn’t a waste of your time because A) you look like a person that needs to be medicated and possibly put away and B) You aren’t going to change  <3FloRENcE+ThEMAcHiNE<3’s mind. I just wish we could all get along like we used to in middle school. I wish that I could bake a cake made out of rainbows and smiles, and we’d all eat it and be happy. (FALSE: middle school was hell). Yes, that was a quote from mean girls, i’m not that clever.

Anyways. I think I’m going to talk about the Real Housewives of Orange County. Vicki and Brooks, mainly Brooks are gross together. First of all, Brianna and Tamra are 100% right. Brooks is a freeloader and he’s trying to clean Vicki’s life of everyone that can sense that, even her own daughter and Vicki is just too blinded by love. I don’t get it, he’s creepy. Like the kind of person you pass on the street and pull your kid a little closer to you just in case. Yeah, I’d watch out for that fella. Sorry, I’m being mean.

Also, Sarah Winchester is a nut and she just wants attention from the show, maybe to be made into a permanent housewife? I don’t know, but if you’ve ever noticed, the “recurring” housewives, never make regular status, except for Brandi in Beverly Hills, which, in her case was much deserved.

Alright, that’s done. Time to download my album FOR FREE! YES, 12 TRACKS ALL FOR FREE RIGHT DOWN THERE! GO AND SWOOP IT UP!

62: The Killing

I don’t know how many of you watch “the killing” on amc. If you do, and you haven’t watched tonights episode, the finale, go. Watch. It. Now. Before you read on.

I have so many conflicting feelings about who actually ended up being responsible for the death of rosie larson. I feel sad because I was really routing for this character. She was the underdog and she was my favorite character. Also, I’m upset because when she released the parking brake on the car that sent rosie into the lake. She knew she was taking someones life. She didn’t know it was her own niece, but she knew it was someone. Also, I really like Jaime, he was another one of my favorites and he was the reason rosie was in the trunk.

This show, “The Killing” is fantastic and good god so many things happened in this episode. Richmond? ARE YOU KIDDING ME? YOU LET THAT HORRIBLE BITCH OF WOMAN WHO COVERED UP ROSIES DEATH AND THE MAN THAT WATCHED HER GO INTO THE LAKE OFF THE HOOK? YOU WERE SUPPOSED TO BE A GOOD GUY?

Now, I feel like the show closed itself up, ready for it to be the series finale. And, if that’s the way it is, I’ll be a little disappointed but its not going to be life ending (no pun intended) like when Ghost Whisperer was cancelled (yes, I’m still bitter). But seriously i’d love to see how everything with Richmond plays out. Maybe the meeting with cheif jackson and ames was to tell them they aren’t off the hook? Probably not. Whatever.

I’m still upset and sad that Terry was involved because she was my broken home girl. She was the one who’s life I routed for to get better. And that most certainly didn’t happen. I’ll still route for you Terry. ❤ even though you killed you niece (unknowingly) for a married man who said he’d leave his wife for you.
For
I’ll be done now with this show. I just needed to get that out. On other news. My album is up on my bandcamp page for free for a limited time (about 1 week… maybe)!!!!! Yes, you can buy all of my music for the little price of $0.00. Or, if you’d like, you can donate some money by entering a higher amount. Or, you can buy the physical CD for $4 plus shipping!

Thank you all for the support! Talk to you all later! goodbye!

60: 2 days until the art show. Woah.

So June 2nd is the big day. It’s the day that the album is officially released and it’s the date of the art show. It’s NUTTTS.

Anyway, I finished the album today. It is fully finished. Everything. All the songs, all the editing, all the finishing. All that’s left is burning it onto the fabulous cd’s that will be on sale for $9 on saturday at the Chanhassen Rec Center from 3-6pm! Remember, $1 from each sold goes to charity!!! YAAY, GIVING!

In further news, Regina Spektors album “What We Saw from the Cheap Seats” came out tuesday and it is really good. I haven’t had the chance to listen to the back half of the album fully but the front half doesn’t disappoint and that makes me so happy. She seems to have gone back to the old Regina, the Regina from the 11:11 and Songs days and the even better, “Soviet Kitsch” days.

Soviet Kitsch was a huge inspiration in making the album that, digitally releases on June 2nd as well!!!

That’s about all I have to say about everything right now. Thanks for reading and if you’re close and have some time on your hands, stop by the Chanhassen Rec Center and buy my album!!!

 

59: They’re HEEEEREEEE!

I got the cd’s. The physically packaged cd’s LAST NIGHT and i want to show them to you. They’re almost everything I wanted. I say almost because I wish I was rich so I could give you guys a huge booklet with lots of pictures and more room for all the lyrics but, guess what. I can’t afford that. Maybe later on it’ll be a possibility. AND GUESS WHAT? BY SHOWING UP AT THE CHANHASSEN REC CENTER AT 3:00 ON JUNE 2 WITH $9, YOU CAN HAVE ONE OF THOSE CD’S IN. YOUR. HAND. AND YOU’LL FEEL GOOD ABOUT YOURSELF BECAUSE YOU WILL HAVE DONATED MONEY TO THE “SAVE THE MUSIC FOUNDATION”.

Anticlimax anyone? Phillip Phillips won American Idol tonight. I said it. February 25th, I told you all he would win. He did. But he shouldn’t have. Jessica whatever should’ve. I’m not really sure what made him so special. Maybe it was because he sounds like every other indie artist boy group with an acoustic guitar that people listen to because it makes them feel like they’re deep and special and that they know indie music. But Jessica whatever had a real voice. But Phillip is more marketable. He might as well join Mumford and Sons and call it a day.

57: 9 Down, 3 to go!!!!

I just completed two more songs today which brings the total of completely finished songs to NINE!!!! This is crazy. Stuff is ACTUALLY REAL and it just keeps getting more and more real as time goes on because yesterday I BOUGHT THE PACKAGING FOR THE ALBUM. I know I said that the special edition was going to be limited to 100 copies but I can’t afford 100 copies so the limit’s been cut in half and is now limited to ONLY 50 COPIES! If I end up selling 50 copies then I may have more ordered but I’m not sure yet.

Once I get the packaging, pictures will be taken and will be uploaded here and probably Facebook.

That’s all I have to say right now but you will hear from me again before June 2 WHICH BY THE WAY IS THE ALBUM RELEASE! I’ll have more details about that as well for people in the area that would like to come and  buy a $10 masterpiece (yes, I’m tooting my own horn a little bit) and see some great art by wonderful amazing art friends.

Also, FRIENDS AND FELLOW AMERICANS. THERE IS A REVOLUTION GOING ON AS WE SPEAK. AN ARMY OF FANS. WHATEVER YOU’D LIKE TO CALL IT IT’S GROWING. I, ZACKERY WILSON, AM HERE TO TELL YOU ABOUT AMANDA PALMER AND THE GRAND THEFT ORCHESTRA.
