Jeez, horrible to see Biz Markie passing away now as well. It’s been a terrible year for rappers, so many big names going.

Socks before or after trousers, but never socks before pants, that's the rule. Makes a man look scary, like a chicken.

@nessisonett in as much as rappers are far more "regular people" than their celebrity sports star counterparts*, it's interesting (and saddening) to see what I theorize to be the result of what is known as "weathering" playing out behind these deaths. Which is to say these rappers are likely the most visible representations one will get of this phenomenon where being black is just downright harder on your health. I mean here you have pampered famous people dying before hitting retirement age. It kinda breaks my heart.

Anyway don't mean to start an argument or get too controversial; just seems like this must be at least partially a factor.

*Genetically speaking, which might explain why you don't see black athletes dying at similarly young ages... but come to think of it there's quite a lot of that too.

@zupertramp There’s probably a lot of truth in that to be honest, a lot of these guys are dying in their 50s from ‘natural causes’. It’s just plain sad to see.

@Jimmer-jammer I imagine you would already have heard of Teenage Fanclub due to their association with Kurt Cobain, but just in case you haven't here is one of their best albums, according to the internet, and I imagine you won't be looking back!

And here's Bon Iver, in case you're unfamiliar, as well.

Let me know what you think!

@TheBrandedSwordsman Bon Iver I’m somewhat familiar with but I’ve somehow never heard of Teenage Fanclub. I enjoyed that song, thanks!

It’s never too late to change

@TheBrandedSwordsman @Jimmer-jammer Hahaha Teenage Fanclub are from about half an hour away from me! The Glasgow C86 scene was really great in the 80s though, a lot of good bands came out of that period.

@nessisonett Before your time from what you've said on here, though. Still, great that you appreciate the music and they're so close to you!

Just been listening to the latest “classical focus” playlist on the BBC Sounds app and got proper goosebumps from this.

(PS anyone have any idea why the vids on the forum are coming up as blank screens for me? Cleared my cache and still happening. It’s fine if I use private mode though!)

@Thrillho That happens to me as well on my iPhone (Safari, private mode doesn't help) but they're fine on desktop Chrome

@Thrillho @Voltan It's happening for me as well on both desktop macOS with Safari and iOS. Other browser work fine. Must be something that's changed with Safari, most likely privacy related.

@Thrillho That's really nice. Have you ever heard anything by Carlos Cipa? He's done some really beautiful tracks but this is one of my favourites...

Also I've just discovered that if you have YouTube open in another tab on desktop Safari then the videos all appear in pushsquare. Weird.

@TheBrandedSwordsman It’s nice to see Blue Note still pumping out the music that made their name! Honestly, there’s been a lot of hype around Omega and I haven’t gotten round to listening to it yet. I’ve heard a lot of good things about that album.

@nessisonett Do you think you will listen to it any time soon? It's a great album ,I listened to it this morning, actually.
