Things I Love


Brad Pitt Between Two Ferns

Thank you, Universe! Even if this day turns out monumentally shxtty (it probably won’t, we’ll be checking out a nice PartyNextDoor show and Timbaland is launching his Epic label as well), at least I can be thankful for this gift…A new episode of Funny or Die’s Between Two Ferns, with host Zach Galifianakis! And special guest Brad Pitt…or as Zach calls him Bradley Pitts.

Zach: Is it hard to maintain a sun tan?
Brad: Huh? Why?
Zach: BECAUSE YOU LIVE IN YOUR WIFE’S SHADOW!

Oh, it’s so so good. So damn good. And there’s even a surprise interlude with Louis C.K. (Mikey…did you hear me? LOUIE!)

Watch the only thing that really counts today…

I’ve always been a sci-fi book and movie junkie…from Dune to 2001: A Space Odessey, from Ender’s Game (the book only) to Mission To Mars. So I couldn’t dream of a better combination than Interstellar‘s science fiction, space travel, the end of the world, and Christopher Nolan, the man who made Inception, The Dark Knight trilogy, and Momento. There’s been so much mystery surrounding the project, even the first trailers gave zero hints about what the movie was even about….but judging from this final trailer, we know Matthew McConaughey and Anne Hathaway travel through space to another planet with an earth-like atmosphere. And it seems that Earth is dire need of a plan B.
That’s about all I can tell…but it’s gorgeous, and I don’t want to know more, and I just want November 7th to get here so I can see it.

Miss Info: Sure we’ve had some great music drops and some unfortunate hip hop romance revelations today…but above all, this is my favorite thing on the internet today. It’s wholly un-rap-related, but if you are an actual human being and not a bot…you’ll also melt into a puddle of feels like I just did.
KLM Airlines has hired a beagle named Sherlock to act as their instant lost-and-found delivery system. After a plane has un-boarded (de-boarded?), the KLM stewardesses check for any forgotten items, and when they find them…they call Sherlock, who takes the item in his KLM utility vest, runs through the airport, and scent-tracks the rightful owner.
Agggh! It’s so adorable I can’t even handle it!

Sometimes a song drops out of the sky and splits you right in two. That’s this song.
“A Kiss Goodbye,” is written and produced by superproducer Emile Haynie, featuring quite the combination of heavy collaborators…guitar by Dev Hynes aka Blood Orange, vocals by Charlotte Gainsbourg, who is basically de facto French royalty–a singer, actress, and fashion muse who happens to also be the daughter of music and arts legend Serge Gainsbourg and actress Jane Birkin (yes, as in…the Hermes Birkin. #headcrack). But it’s the second half of this unexpected song that will do you in….
Sampha‘s trembling voice and these lyrics about the bitter burning aftertaste of a love left to rot…

did it ever occur that you forgave yourself before I did.
did it ever occur that you forgave yourself before I could.
So I’m not cool with you.
I’m done and done and done…

Far too real for anyone who’s felt that same hurt.

Now we already know Emile Haynie’s work with Lana Del Rey, Bruno Mars, Kid Cudi, and most recently, Eminem’s new single with Sia “Guts Over Fear”…he’s long fine-tuned the blend of melancholy and hip hop aggression. But this song is much more personal. Is it part of a larger compilation? Well, I’ve heard more than I can speak on yet…but the future looks quite bright for those who love music about the darkest moments.

Stop everything and listen to Emile Haynie’s “A Kiss Goodbye”….

Baby-North-CR-Magazine

Slay! I can’t get enough of Kanye and Kim Kardashian’s little offspring. North West is just so…so…pretty, all pudgy kneecaps and round tummies and big eyes and peach cheeks. She’s always perfectly dressed. Pastel and neutral cashmeres, nubby linens, no crass logos or ironic hashtags or Calabasas sparkles. And she doesn’t promote anything, or pass judgements, or annoy anyone with things like projects, or selfies, or words. We can all enjoy this tiny person’s days of innocence…and the fact that she is so damn cute in every photo.

Perhaps the fact that North has sat for her first solo fashion shoot is the beginning of a less pristine period in her life…but it was inevitable. Technically, her first editorial was when she stole the show from mom and dad in Vogue…but the 1-year-old will be featured all by herself in the new issue of former Vogue editor Carine Roitfeld’s glossy mag CR Fashion Book, shot by Michael Avedon (who is the grandson of legendary fashion photographer Richard Avedon). Just over a year ago, CR featured Kim K. on their cover, heavily pregnant with North at the time and rocking full top and bottom matte gold grills.

ILOVEMAKONNEN-drake-cover

Drake has always been an artist willing to jump on buzzing underground cuts from SBTRKT’s “Wildfire” to Lil’ Reese’s “Us,” and more recently Migos’ “Versace” last year. The Canadian rapper continues that trend by getting on ILOVEMAKONNEN’s “Club Going Up on a Tuesday,” which has taken a life of its own this summer. The 25-year-old rapper/singer/producer, hailing out of Atlanta by way of Los Angeles, has created a buzz with his two EPs Drink More Water 4 and I Love Makonnen.

The latter, is where you can find the original version of “Club Going Up on a Tuesday” produced by Sonny Digital and Metro Boomin, which Drizzy showed his love to on Monday night in an Instagram post. Stream and download the OVO remix below.

1995 MTV Movie Awards
(TLC’s T-Boz, Left-Eye, and Chilli in 1995)

I love long-buried stories of totally random love connections like this. While this has absolutely nothing to do with anything, Chili from TLC was reminiscing on the 90’s with OK! Magazine, on the horrors of thin eyebrows, the magic of TV-VCR combos, the days of touring with MC Hammer
Then she dropped a celeb-drama bomb!

OK! Mag: Is there a movie from the 90s you can still recite the lines from?
Chilli: I’m a movie buff but I have to think about movies from the 90s. Clueless—I loved Amber’s, “Whatever!” It’s funny because I saw that movie with Prince. He took me to see that movie. I’ve never told this story! We were in Indianapolis and the theater was closed but of course they opened back up from him so it was just he and I watching Clueless.

Jessie Ware

There are so many cool indie female singers these days…if only I had sad-girl idols like Sia, Florence Welch, Yukimi (Little Dragon), Lykke Li,  Lana Del Rey and FKA Twigs to mope around with during my angsty hormonal Are-You-There-God-It’s-Me-Margaret teen years….but I was stuck raging against the man with NWA and Kool G. Rap. Kids these days have everything handed to them, lol.

But while not as depressing as a Lana or as outer-spacey as Flo, Jessie Ware‘s pop still has a little dark to balance the sweet, and after 2 years off the grid, her new song “Tough Love” is one of my favorite of the summer of 2014. Her past hits like “Running” and “Imagine It Was Us” were too British blue-eyed house music for me, but it’s very promising that this time around, Jessie is working with producers like Benzel***.

Nas-Illmatic-original-cassette

I’ve never been good at acknowledging the passing of time. We’ve never celebrated an anniversary here at MissInfo.TV. I’ve never felt comfortable doing week-long, self-congratulatory birthday tours. I have no idea how long I’ve worked at Hot 97. And I’m terrible at corroborating albums and release years. Is it a fear of change or a symptom of a disorganized mind? Yes, yup. But as a result, yesterday can feel like ancient history, and what I felt 20 years ago… is a room right next door.
