LISTEN: New Timberlake Single “TKO”

I was a little afraid to listen to Justin Timberlake’s new song mostly because the first part of The 20/20 Experience besides “Mirrors” and “Body Count” were pretty underwhelming, but it’s not bad at all.

(If you know me at all, you know that “not bad” is my Daria-esque way of saying that I love it and am currently dancing in circles to it until I projectile vomit on the three perplexed cats that are watching me waiting for me to die so they can eat me.)  Continue reading “LISTEN: New Timberlake Single “TKO””

Sugar Ray Debuts New Song at Under the Sun Tour

Mark+McGrath+sunglasses 2013Remember Sugar Ray? Remember how fucking rad they were?

Yeah, so do I. That’s why when I heard about this tour, which rolled through the Greek Theater in Los Angeles this past Saturday, I immediately purchased tickets.

The song has only been performed a couple of times, so it’s difficult to find. But a clip from this live show in Indonesia does a decent job of showcasing the it. I’ll just wait here while you listen.

Done? Bad right?! I mean those lyrics…what the hell is Sugar Ray doing?  Continue reading “Sugar Ray Debuts New Song at Under the Sun Tour”

Justin Timberlake middle fingerI’ve loved Justin Timberlake ever since I found out there was an alternative to the Backstreet Boys. I put up with his cornrows, cross tattoo, and matching denim cowboy hat and jacket because I knew he would always bring me joy with his luscious musical talents and kind blue eyes, but now I see that his recent marriage to Jessica Biel has rusted his gift, and something must be done!

Though I’m positive that the new song, “Suit & Tie” featuring Jay-Z, is a rushed, throwaway b-side track to appease the fans and by no means a gauge of what the album he’s working on (The 20/20 Experiencewill be like, I also know as a longtime Timberlake fan that it’s the fault of his current girlfriend, or in this case, wife.
