Sexman is this Canadian vlogger kid, and he is the awkward, depressing, bloodthirsty, profane, puberty-stached middle schooler in all of us. Well, some of us. He is also a genius. He's been making videos for about a year now, and he never disappoints. From deep in the soul-sucking void of the Macbook camera, Sexman casts a bright ray of light, like an angler fish. Subscribe to his videos, and watch his old ones, too. You won't regret it. This his most recent video. He has really insightful things to say about the Chris Brown/Rihanna situation!

I didn't watch the Grammys, because why would I watch something I already know the outcome of? It's the same reason I don't watch Rock of Love anymore. Obviously, Robert Plant and Allison Krause were going win everything. They're old. Only old people make relevant music. And obviously, they did win everything. Who'da thunk it?
So, I'm sure that Robert Plant & Allison Krause's album is good and all. It's probably perfectly acceptable and pleasant and it probably gets played on WDST every fifteen minutes. But, real talk, is it better than this?
Radiohead Forever. Grammys ForNever.

One thing I'm looking forward to musically in the near future is Mi Ami. Mi Ami is the new band with former members of Black Eyes, the defunct Dischord screeching dance-punk outfit that makes me wish I was about five years older than I am so I could have seen them because they are best. Seriously, check out their self-titled album. It's the best. OK. So, even though Black Eyes are gone, there is Mi Ami, who, judging from what I've heard, are awesome too. The song included here, "African Rhythms," is the sweatiest, most relentless song I've heard in a long-ass time. More percussion than Dynamic Drums/Aquatic Oasis Fish Supplies in Kerhonkson, NY could even dream of.
The reason I'm excited about Mi Ami at this very moment is because their debut album, Watersports, comes out February 17th, and they're playing two shows in New York next week:
the 11th at Cake Shop, and the 12th at Monster Island Basement. Both are with Baltimore's Thank You. I'm going to the Monster Island one. You should too.
