lady gaga album drop


after what seems like a solid year of anticipation, lady gaga's sophomore record, 'born this way' has finally dropped. the official release isn't until next week but you can stream via the metro, presumably down to the inevitable leaks.
i'm not ashamed to say that i've been a gaga fan from the start, i hasten to call myself a little monster though, and i must admit, i had a little case of the fear for ol' stefani. a product of her own hype and mass-marketing, she had a lot to live up to.
the first single, title track 'born this way', catchy as it was, it was no 'bad romance'. this was a song she had proclaimed to be the best she'd ever written, shit.
'judas' came, it was good although still something was missing.
then in what seems like the weirdest album campaign ever, tracks started dropping left, right and centre, shooting to number 1 all over the world until this morning when the album was finally made available to listen to in it's entirety.
there's a couple of shit ones on it but when it's good, it's incredible.
recommended listens, 'government hooker' 'americano' 'heavy metal lover' 'schie├če' and 'electric chapel'.
can't wait for the remixes!

coming attractions


i've been obsessively watching tons of movie trailers the past few days. going to the cinema in london is a luxury which one often can't afford at the hefty price tag of almost 15 bucks a time but regardless of that, here's a few reasons to spend a couple of hours inside this summer.
