(New Musical Express)   When life gives you lemons, you make Lemonade and accuse your husband of infidelity. When that happens, you record an album named after the number of minutes you have left on the fame clock and admit your marriage is cracking   ( nme.com) divider line

Great show, great actor, one of the greatest scenes in the series.

That show is just terrific.  I'm force-rationing it once per week so that I don't burn through too fast.  I make up the middle days by re-watching 30Rock.

Back to the thread: Subby is claiming that Jay-Z is a fading, soon-to-be nobody?  I bet he also has important opinions like "rap is crap."  Get f*cking real.

When life gives you lemons, don't make lemonade. Make life take the lemons back! Get mad! I don't want your D*** lemons, what the h*** am I supposed to do with these? Demand to see life's manager! Make life rue the day it thought it could give Cave Johnson lemons! Do you know who I am? I'm the man who's gonna burn your house down! With the lemons! I'm gonna get my engineers to invent a combustible lemon that burns your house down!

Freeze the lemons then throw them back at life.  Being frozen, they will do more damage.  However, save a couple so you can squeeze the juice into life's wounds.  Life will think twice about giving you lemons again.

If an album needs that much back story to be appreciated, it's not a good album.

I've finished my second watching and am now resting before watching it again. Do you like Parks and Rec? That's my other show in the strong rotation.

We watched Parks and Rec on NBC when it was new... loved it.  Is that on Netflix or Hulu now?  I don't have Hulu.

Meh, maybe I'm just jaded, the world's over saturated, I suppose if its in music with which you're infatuated then an album drop just might make you elated.  But seriously, I've heard more about these two albums then any other album in years, and no, I don't keep up on the industry, which is why I think this is smart marketing hype.

Beyonce would be hot right up to the point she took off the wig and make-up, so I don't really blame him.


And rap IS crap. Rhyming spoon and moon isn't exactly artistry, buddy.

Shadows even the silver spoon
The handmade blade, the child's balloon
Eclipses both the sun and moon

I don't know what a Jay-Z is, but given my handle, I'm getting a big kick out of Subbys headline.

Forget it, man... dude's trying to dis Jay-Z for writing nursery rhymes when the guy has invented a new popular lexicon across his catalog.  But I'm sure that's easy-peasy.

She's like Sassy, the TV dino star, who Fred's Dino went ga-ga over until he saw the real Sassy off-camera.  We all grew up a little after seeing that episode, I can tell you.

When life gives you lemons, ask for the purchase order, deny that you ordered them and demand you get your money back.

Oh and rap does suck.

I think if life gives you lemons, you should short lemon futures. Because you are about to flood the market with a shiatload of cheap lemons

EyeballKid: If an album needs that much back story to be appreciated, it's not a good album.


Depends on the album and circumstance.

"London Calling" makes a whole lot more sense if you kind of got where England was in the late 70's and early 80's with rampant unemployment, government agency strikes and Margaret Thatcher.

Years ago there was a program on NPR taking about the history of Miles Davis' recording output and chronicling where he was going through and what was going on in the world at that time.

"Exile on Main Street" is an amazing album from front to back and then you learn the history of where it was recorded, how it was recorded and what the band personally and professionally were going through.  It adds an element of depth to it.

But yeah....if the entirety of the backstory is "the drums sound off because we liked watching the drummer drool when he's on thorazine so that's what we did" then sure you've not got a whole lot to go with.

Also love the "my kids don't deserve to be dragged through this, now let both my wife and myself turn a private problem into a national story for 2 years running" angle.  Plenty of marriages struggle with infidelity without dragging the kids into it, let alone trying to make a hit album on the subject.
