Pada tahun 2019, beredar cerita menakutkan disalah satu rumah daerah Kepanjen.

Rumah ini adalah bekas peninggalan belanda. Bentuk bangunannya masih utuh dari dahulu sampai sekarang.
Tetapi siapa sangka, rumah yang memiliki bentuk bangunan yang indah dan sangat membuat hati tersentuh oleh suasana tempo dulu ini menyimpan cerita yang sangat kelam.

Seakan-akan siapapun yang melihatnya ditarik oleh energi entah dari mana dan mengisyaratkan untuk masuk.

1/ The #GRAMMYs have announced nominees in 86 categories. Over the past year, our critic @skornhaber reviewed many of the contenders for Album of the Year. Here are some of the highlights:
2/ “Sour,” by Olivia Rodrigo, “embodies a trend of treating songwriting as an act of explanation rather than exploration,” Kornhaber argued in May.…
3/ Billie Eilish’s success has “capped off a decade during which popular music made more space for malaise in its melodies,” Kornhaber wrote.…

“One More Time" became Daft Punk’s biggest hit & first million-selling single, sampling Eddie Johns' 1979 song "More Spell on You.”

Though Daft Punk confirmed they have, for years, paid royalties to officially license the sample, he hasn’t seen a dime…
When Daft Punk swept the 2014 #Grammys sampling his song, Eddie Johns was living on the streets.

Unlike other, more prominent sampled acts on Daft Punk's “Random Access Memories," he is not credited as a songwriter on the publishing for “One More Time”…
The Liberian-born singer, now 70, struggled with homelessness here for more than a decade.

He had a stroke 10 years ago that left him unable to work and forced him onto the streets or into shelters… Image

I'm amused by all the folks in "my generation" (and even a bit younger) complaining about #GRAMMYs last night, specifically about the "lewd" dancing, revealing costumes, and dirty songs. When is it that we became our parents and grandparents? 1/
I'm equally amused at their loud and obnoxious complaining that there's "no good music anymore." That's utter BS. There's lots of great music out there. It's just that most of it doesn't get nominated for #GRAMMYs and you have to look for it. 2/
In any event, it appears that most people develop their musical tastes in their teens and early twenties. Whatever music was popular then is generally what they like forever, and, by the time they're in their 40s, they often have a hard time with music the "kids" find popular. 3/

There’s a mask mandate in Los Angeles where violations can carry a $1,000 fine or 6 months in jail but apparently COVID isn’t a concern if you’re a celebrity at the #Grammys. Celeb parties are no big deal but have a family party in LA and the mayor can turn off your power.
Is everyone understanding what BS this is yet? The elite still party while you lose your businesses, your jobs and kids commit suicide from lockdowns. Those are the rules they want you to accept. If you’re still willing to accept that deal then you must love being controlled.
Even now LA county is shutting off the electricity for a small business because they dared to try to save their business by staying open. All while they allow celebrities to throw a party in primetime.…

Good Lord. #GRAMMYs are even more terribly pornographic than I thought they could be. If that makes me a prude, I really don't care. No way I will let my granddaughter watch this s**t
Seriously... there was a time a woman would be ashamed to writhe around on a bed for a living.
And, of course, Trevor Noah is completely drooling over them, because that's the closest he gets to being with a woman. #GRAMMYs

If you liked @MickeyGuyton's "Black Like Me," listen to, "What Are You Gonna Tell Her?"

A sample of the lyrics:

🎶 She thinks life is fair and
God hears every prayer
And everyone gets their ever after 🎶 1/ #Grammys
🎶 She thinks love is love and if
You work hard, that's enough
Skin's just skin and it doesn't matter
And that her friend's older brother's gonna keep his hands to himself
And that somebody's gon' believe her when she tells 🎶 2/
🎶 But what are you gonna tell her
When she's wrong?
Will you just shrug and say it's been that way all along?
What are you gonna tell her
When she figures out
That all this time you built her up just so the world could let her down? 🎶 3/

can't wait to go to a party or bar again soon to corner someone and bring up how the Jason Wade version of You Belong to Me that's on the Shrek soundtrack isn't on Spotify
one time at work everyone made a list of their top five albums of all time and I put the Shrek soundtrack on mine and everyone got mad but I was right
Shrek 2 soundtrack is also full of bangers sorry to use the term "bangers"

This is already so good. @Harry_Styles #grammys
Given the lack of live performances for so long, the whole thing -- voices over theatrics, music in the round, the artists sitting and grooving to other artists, the first three selections -- is just a joy to watch. #GRAMMYs
This is such a neat touch and I hope they keep it; artists talking about their careers and how they think about their music. It's just interesting. Plus #BlackPumas are just so good. #GRAMMYs

Who else is watching the #GRAMMYs with me?

I’m just gonna use this thread to talk about ‘em so I don’t clog up your timeline.
Harry Styles DGAF what you think. He has swagger, that one.
Billy Eyelash has really grown on me. I was slow to warm but I’m there.

I'm not going to fall for the Grammy's fake diversity trap, nope.

They do this like every year. Get all of the tribal category wins out there untelevised so Black folks can get hype to watch the show -- only to then give mostly white winners awards on air. #GRAMMYs
Notice how most of the pop categories haven't been called on air yet, but most of the Rap/R&B ones are already done?
An opportunity to give airtime to Black and brown artists by default is systematically reduced to give more on-air time to mostly white artists in predominantly white music categories.

On social media, singer Fiona Apple explained why she declined to attend the virtual Grammys ceremony.… Image

Like every artist who released an album in the spring of 2020, L.A. jazz-fusion bassist @Thundercat (📸 w/ @flyinglotus) has had a long time to sit with the mixed emotions of releasing his life’s work at the onset of a pandemic…
The 2021 #Grammys are, in the scope of things, not top priority for those who lost a loved one to the pandemic, or depended on touring income.

But they might end up being something meaningful for two of L.A.’s most acclaimed artists…
Both are up for awards on March 14:

• Thundercat 📸 for progressive R&B album (competing against Chloe x Halle, Jhené Aiko, Robert Glasper & Free Nationals)

• Flying Lotus for producer, nonclassical (against Jack Antonoff, Dan Auerbach & Dave Cobb)… Image

One of the Ostrower Family's most valued possessions is a VHS recording of the #StarWars world bcast premiere on CBS from March 1984.

No one owned home videos back then so this was a big BIG deal. It was the only way to rewatch a movie.

(warning: nerdy 🧵 ahead)

We would watch the VHS nearly every weekend (commercials & all)

Over time we realized we had what amounted to a time capsule from the Reagan-era.

Here is an incredible TWA ad from early in the bcast w awk 80s gender politics.

Note the young #PaulaZahn pop on a the end.

The broadcast had "special" cutaways to commercial. Here's #MagicJohnson showing R2D2 some love.

I loved this VHS so much I decided to digitize it in 2008.

And I've been meaning to share some of these amazing ads for years, so here we are...
