Because so much music can be taken at face value, I dig the occasional nefarious song with a happy melody. Three favorites:
Drake - Bitch is Crazy // Sounds like a Muziq or D’angelo love song, but far from it.
Kid Cudi - Wasting My Minutes // Producer 88-Keys and Kid Cudi spin the old Andrew Gold tributary into a song about a dumb girl.
The Vandals - Flowers are Pretty // Apocalyptic, yet hilarious.
I do some work with my old roommate who runs Yandy.com, an online lingerie and costume megastore of sorts. It’s a fantastic business that does quite well and fills a definite need in the marketplace. However, the stuff isn’t the most classy. There are crotchless fishnets, thongs galore and other raunchy stuff, but it sells like hot cakes. Actually, they have a running joke about how chains and leather made up the bulk of Yandy’s business in the earlier years, much to the owner’s chagrin…
In running Yandy’s Facebook page, I’ve discovered a couple of weird standards that Facebook has related to nudity which I will now illustrate here.
Thanks to a few strict warning messages, I’ve learned that uncovered butt cheeks are deemed nudity, but up-close crotch shots are not. Also, there are no passes for businesses on Facebook, not even those who advertise (which we do and works tremendously). While I don’t understand it, I certainly hope that they don’t change their mind and drop the ban-hammer on our whole operation.
Now you know.
