IT’S NOT TYPICAL FOR JEWS TO HAVE 8 DAYS OF PRESENTS. THIS IS NOT HOW IT WORKS FOR MOST JEWS.
We have a night (sometimes two) of family get-togethers and sometimes presents are given. Not because Channuka is a gift-giving holiday (because it’s NOT), but just because such things tend to happen…
"Eight days of presents" my ass. The wealthy started this trend because their children felt left out with all their friends getting Christmas presents. That is not what Channukkah is about. And I am perpetually irritated that the tradition even got started by a select few because now every goy I mention the holiday to lights up and is like, "oh, what presents did you get?!" FUCK OFF.
Also like it isn’t the big holiday and if you call it like “jewish christmas” I will hurt you.
how does Britney Spears' Alien compare to Katy Perry's ET
Britney is the alien and Katy wants to fuck the boy who is literally beyond earth: but the stars in the sky look like home…and the light in your eyes lets me know I’m not alone, Vs.they say, be afraid, you’re not like the others, futuristic lover, different DNA, they don’t understand you
I mean at the end of the day we are talking about a Very Good Britney song and a Very Bad Katy song.
Katy Perry’s best songs are very different from ET, very FUCK YEA GO ME. Look at Roar, which basically exists to prove wrong everyone who ever said “no katy song will ever pump me up as much as Firework.” Or maybe that’s just me.? Anyway, there are some great katy songs that aren’t so rah-rah-go-me, but I’d still say that is what makes a Katy song.
Brit’s best songs, on the other hand, are very I don’t need you-yes I do come back. I hate you/I love you, let me out/save me. Lucky is of course like Britney 101, but I also v. much believe I Wanna Go is Very Important Britney, andnever ever forget Stronger, never forget that songs like Piece of Me, Alien, Perfume, Overprotected, I Wanna Go, come after Stronger.
Britney is building barriers then tearing them down, Britney is looking for safety in anything, anyone, sometimes skeptically but sometimes so openly, too openly. Britney is searching. Britney is the alien looking for a home! Britney did it again, she played with your heart… oops.
I mean also, I can’t think about ET without seeing it as a Katy-Perry-being-racist-and-digging-the-“exotic’-guy thing, that is a big part of that, there is a big difference between I was lonely then like an alien and Boy you’re an alien, your touch so foreign, it’s supernatural, extraterrestrial.
So yeah. ET is a pretty racist, not-a-good-katy-perry-song song, and Alien is a great Britney song, I guess, is what I am trying to say.
In case you were wondering about how I feel today, my plaid shirt is done up like Britney Spears in ….Baby One More Time and I DON’T feel that ridiculous. May have said ”help my self-esteem is broken, I feel cute.”
also I am wearing a studded belt from spencers and that is the most important thing/might’ve been the impetus for wearing my shirt up, to show it off.
my arm is doing the swelling/claw thing it does sometimes it is doing this specifically because 2 days ago I went “huh my arm hasn’t done the swelly/claw thing in a while I wonder if that’s cuz [blah blah blah things I eat/don’t eat]
and i guess my arm decided to me like “yeah fuck you I can still do this if you want??”
Now, when I listen to your shit, I hear similarities. I actually wanted to work with him (Jon Brion) so I could be like the rap version of you. That was one of my main goals. The albums that inspired me for Late Registration were your first one, Tidal  and Portishead's Dummy , but especially your lyrics and how you sing. How is your vocabulary so ill? Were you tight in vocabulary in your school?
No, but I just love words. I love looking at phrases books and word origins books because they have so many obsolete, never-used phrases. They have a rhythm to them. You can build a whole song on a phrase that you like because it will spark something in your head, something that's going on with you. You'll hear a phrase and it will just ring true to you. I just love that.
One thing that I like to do is use words that have never actually been used in a rap song before. I also like to take words that have negative connotations and show their real meaning. Like the word "pop." This is a pop album, but pop has a negative connotation if you're a "real artist." The title of The College Dropout--that's what that was. What is so negative about dropping out of college? Why do we automatically shun people who drop out of school?
It's a word without a context.
Exactly. And if you think of the examples of people who have dropped out of college that pop into your head, they're like Bill Gates and Michael Jordan.
