But when the two artists decide to team up, I swear, magic HAPPENS.
Directed by Constellation Jones (who also directed Miguel’s video for ‘Adorn’), Miguel’s ‘How Many Drinks’ video features no complicated special effects, bad acting or any drama whatsoever. Rather, it’s just a simple video featuring a dimly-lit soundstage with Miguel wearing a stylish shirt with squares and Kendrick Lamar in a delightfully crazy black and white get-up.
The reason I love these two artists is because they keep it simple by letting the music do all the talking.
Looks to me, this might just be the song of the summer…or not.
Remember Friday? That annoying yet catchy song that turned Rebecca Black into an internet phenom for all the wrong reasons?
Well, there may just be just another song that will make you forget all about it.
The Stack Boys, a young rap group of prepubescent boys, has released a song and music video called “Snapbacks”, dedicated to…you guessed it, snapback caps.
With poor auto-tuning, a ton of “woos”, and some really bad video effects from the Photobooth option on a Mac, music fans will be shaking their heads once they hear this “rap” song.
With lyrics like, “I’m listening to people sounding stupid talking about stuff like drugs and acting like a thug/and I’m thinking “Stop!” you don’t make sense/”, all I can think is: How old are these kids?!
Maybe they should go outside and play. Because this “dope” music video might be something they’ll regret in the future.
Parent’s Just Don’t Understand… Yet?
Our parents are great, for the most part. When we are too small to defend or feed ourselves, they take care of us. As we grow and mature, they guide and nurture us so that we can become fully functional human beings, and not the equivalent of lower primates, sitting in trees flinging our own crap at each other (thank you Red Forman). But one area where most parents don’t quite have the ability to be the all-knowing influence they would like to be: video games.
When I was growing up playing tag and hide-and-seek, my parents totally understood. They would ask how the game went, where I was hiding, what kind of tag rules I played with – they were very involved, because they could relate my experience to their own. However, when I picked up my first Genesis game, they watched Sonic the Hedgehog like he was an alien from outer space (wait, was he?), shook their heads, and left the room. Thus ended my parent’s ability to fully understand me – from that day forward, there would always be that barrier between us – the invisible yet impassable wall made of 1-ups and gold coins.

Patrick Cranshaw, who played “Blue” in Old School, died on Wednesday at his home in Fort Worth, Texas, of natural causes. He was 86.
Though an acting veteran of over 50 years, Cranshaw is best known ? among people under 30 at least?for his small role as a frat brother in the Will Ferrell and Vince Vaughn film Old School.
In a memorable scene, Blue is ready to fight two topless women in a mud wrestling match, when he dies of a heart attack.
At his funeral, Ferrell yells, “You’re my boy, Blue,” a line that people yelled out to Cranshaw before his death.
Cranshaw will appear in Air Buddies, a film set for release sometime this year. He most recently appeared in Herbie: Fully Loaded, and has also been in Best in Show, Almost Heroes, Ed Wood, The Beverly Hillbillies, Pee-wee’s Big Adventure, Bonnie and Clyde and Green Acres.
