Tossing Salt Presents:
Music Fact or Fiction
April 28, 2018
Good morning and get ready to sing the blues. Actually, I’m feeling good today. I guess a day of WWE’s Greatest Royal Rumble, followed by work and then Avengers: Infinity War was just what the man needed. Now if I could just chill with my bro for a little bit and get laid. Well, I’m off tomorrow so there’s always hope. And no, I don’t mean get laid by my bro. Ick! That’s nasty. Two totally different things and actions so get your minds out of the gutter. Besides, he’s straight, damn it! Now, let’s get busy and do that “Fact or Fiction” thing. This is the weekly music edition.
Judge Genece Brinkley should recuse herself from the Meek Mill case.
FACT: It’s all about perception and it looks like Brinkley is biased against Mill. Even if it’s not true, and I don’t think it is, there is enough there that despite whatever Mill may or may not do and any evidence, there’s going to be that shadow of doubt lingering about. Even if it’s just for the sake of appearance, Brinkley should step aside and let another judge take over. It’s just common sense.
Avicii’s most well-known song “Wake Me Up” was also his best.
FACT: I’m not familiar with Avicii to be honest, but I have heard of the song “Wake Me Up” and went back to listen to it on YouTube. It’s catchy and infectious and a decent tune. Is it his best? I can’t say, but it’s not bad at all.
The news of two new Kanye West albums this year is exciting.
FICTION: I’m sure that some people will always be happy and excited and even I’ll admit that Kayne is a creative person, but he’s an ass-clown and has always been an ass-clown in my opinion and I don’t care what he says or does and would actually prefer to see him just go away and retire to a small island in the South Pacific. And as for his recent “Trump Bro stuff”, it’s just Kayne trying to stir the pot and get some publicity. He’s about as sincere as a pill-head when they need some money. He’ll do or say anything, good or bad, to get attention. Screw Kayne.
You have no interest in Deadmau5’s first-person shooter game.
FACT: I don’t know who Deadmau5 is and don’t care. I also don’t play video games and could care less about them either. The kids today need to put down those controllers and go outside and get some sunlight and be kids, not computer controlled zombies.
Things aren’t looking good for Suge Knight with his murder case going to trial.
FACT: Things have gone from bad to more bad with Suge and he’s going through lawyers like a meth head through teeth. He ran a guy over, claims self defense and it’s been total chaos ever since. And then throw in the heath issues and unless he lucks out and gets an O.J. style verdict where the prosecution just totally screws it all up, he’s pretty much in a bad situation. I don’t think he’ll ever walk a free man again, nor should he.
You’re surprised the rape lawsuit against Russell Simmons was dropped.
FICTION: I don’t know if it happened or not, but as is the case in most of these celebrity sex accusations, the money talks and they rarely come to trial. Be is a statue of limitations or too many unanswered questions or as in this case, it appears that a settlement was made to make it go away. Am I surprised? Not at all except for that it didn’t happen sooner. I guess that the $$$ signs weren’t high enough yet until now.
And there you go. Is my cynicism showing through? I’m down and gone to go get ready for work. Have a great one and thanks for reading. Comments and thoughts welcome. Until the next time, take care.
