Throwback Thursday: Isley Brothers – “Busted” (Ft. JS)

Go Upstairs, pack ya bags
While ya at it, call a cab!

Long before pals R.Kelly and Usher discovered they were messing with the “Same Girl“, the Pied Piper had a less friendly rival in Mr. Biggs (aka Ron Isley). The two R&B Legends battled in an epic multi-album back and forth struggle of Shakespearean proportions  for the heart of one mystical “Ms. Black Asia”. This would reach its  violent climax culmination in a final epic “Showdown“. Before that final duel however, Mr. Biggs caught his not-so-slick hussy coming home from one of her nightly love escapades, and what ensued was the best soap-opera you’ll see condensed into a music video… BUSTED:

4 Reasons To Be Excited 4 Colbert, The Greatest Night Show Host

So, George Bush – GREAT president, or the GREATEST president?” In the golden years of the Colbert Report,”Stephen ” the conservative, loud-mouthed, self proclaimed “truth-feeler” often asked his exasperated guests to answer that one simple question after the 5 minute mental roller coaster of their professional lives.  Tonight, Stephen Colbert debuts to answer a more important question. Here are 4 reasons there is no wrong answer:

1.  Breaking up the JIMMopoly:
Okay, that was slightly terrible, almost as terribly plastic as the content and context has become on the late night tip. The Jimmies are having a field day with ratings, thanks in part to curation for viral video viewership (say that fast 3 times).

When Letterman announced his retirement, he conceded in that old curmudgeon swagger we mentioned on his tribute. In a subsequent Rolling Stone interview he affirmed “I hear about things going viral and I think, ‘How do you do that?’ I think I’m the blockage in the plumbing.”

To date, top Jimmy is pummeling bottom Jimmy so hard in that department, that he went and created another show on a whole other network, and THAT is the #1 Show on THAT network. It’s an entire show where celebrities are lip-syncing other singer’s songs. -_- (I mean REALLY!? What’re we doin here?).

Executive Producer of The Tonight Show, Lorne Michaels now has his hands in creating SNL, subsequently Jimmy Fallon, and now grandfathering America’s karaoke machine. NO ONE MAN SHOULD HAVE ALL THAT unfunny POWER!  Since Colbert Report ended, my 10:30PM (Central) has been basically Charlie Rose only – into Seth Myers, when I’m not too busy hosting sexy parties.  We shouldn’t have to choose between marginally funny, and topically informative and edgy late night. We can have both! We will, on the Late Show With Stephen Colbert

The Copywriter For Spotify Is A Fucking Goofball!

spotifygas

You guys, check out that last line of the description for the latest Spotify update.  L.O.FUCKIN.L. AM-I-RITE?  Someone at a Spotify needs to march down to the marketing department with a Phillip’s head screwdriver, because we’ve got a copywriter with some screws wayyyyy the fuck loose!  Look at what that GOOFBALL wrote: “Fictitious: This app is a gas at room temperature.”  CUT THAT TOMFOOLERY OUT – AN ELECTRONIC MUSIC APP ISN’T A GAS!

We should all be thankful that they at least came partially back to reality and tagged that little nugget of comedy gold as “fictitious”.   Can you imagine the unholy chaos that would spring from the ground if people mistakenly thought Spotify actually WAS a gas at room temperature?!?! Your grandma would be running around screaming, “HELP! I’M INHALING A STREAMING SERVICE!”  I think we dodged certain doom here, everyone.

April Fool’s Day is long over, but our Spotify copywriter doesn’t care.  They’re going to bring the fucking ruckus all day, every day. I don’t know about you guys, but I can’t wait to see what they come up with next!
