Cee-Lo Green delivers what may well be the most brutally honest heartbreak song I’ve heard in ages, with the subtly titled “Fuck You” off his upcoming album, The Ladykiller. Don’t let the title throw you; this is straight-up throwback soul with Cee-Lo’s trademark off-kilter honesty.
Yup, you just heard the best song that’ll be butchered on radio this year. It’s about time Cee-Lo really lived up to his potential, and this track makes me damned excited for his October release.
Have I mentioned how happy I am to have Batman back in Detective Comics? Although the story itself is only so-so I like how Dennis O’Neil gives us a case that’s been bothering Dick Grayson since he first put on his Robin booties, and one he can now finally close as Batman. Plus I love the flashback art from Dustin Nguyen. I’m even willing to forgive the mistake of Batman’s costume not fitting the period (Batman hadn’t yet added the oval when Robin first hit the streets). Throw in Robin’s first encounter with the Joker and I’m pretty happy. Definitely worth a look.
You know, I really struggled with what would be the very first ‘official’ post of this newly revamped dadsbigplan, and finally I realized I should approach this with the absolute same degree of ceremony that was afforded the very last post on Transbuddha. Namely, none at all. If you’re here on purpose, then you probably know the drill. We find something cool, write something pithy, and then pass it along to you, our dear anonymous internet pals. Why change a good thing?
So to start us off, here’s a clip of First Aid Kit performing ‘Our Own Pretty Ways’ off their debut album, “The Big Black & The Blue”.
