Yep just saw it, cheers

SPOD  said about 4 years ago:

I came to SXSW half just to see these kids, took some video of them jumping off the roof @ the Thrasher party & they've put it up on the Odd Future site.

Phenomenal show, amazing kids. Earl is the standout, it's such a shame he can't come to any shows.

anonymous  said about 4 years ago:

those videos are mad, i'm playing catchup as of today, so far, everything's been awesome.

dnzr  said about 4 years ago:

yeah, they are pretty awesome.

Tyler, Earl and Hodgey Beats stand out head and shoulders above the others...

next Wu Tang?

brody  said about 4 years ago:

I implore you to check out the Frank Ocean album. Swim Good is an amazing song.

gabbo  said about 4 years ago:

can't wait for the Odd Future clothing range.

Print shirts, flat bicycle caps, shorts.

Though the green balaclava Tyler is wearing atm is awesome.

dnzr  said about 4 years ago:

aren't they endorsed by Supreme?

en la noche  said about 4 years ago:

yeah they're on supreme

not really feeling this stuff myself. What I've heard sounds like early 00s def jux/anticon plus rape jokes

dudewolf  said about 4 years ago:

national_highway_31  said about 4 years ago:

The only people I know who are excited about this band are middle-class crypto-racists, who think lyrics about raping white women and gay bashing makes them edgy. Needless to say most of these people have never been raped or gay bashed, nor experienced drug dealing or gang life. This is pretty much the 2010 equivalent to the minstrel show.

shaun  said about 4 years ago:

I think it's funny that people get upset when a bad band like Brokencyde do this, but when it's something that's tasteful it's totally okay.

national_highway_31  said about 4 years ago:

White hipsters like their niggers to be bad, so that they don't threaten their own sense of superiority at the top of society. It's why 50 Cent and Odd Future will always be more popular than Saul Williams, Anti-Pop Consortium, or the Last Poets.

really loved reading this:

Whoever you are. Wherever you are… I’m starting to think we’re a lot alike. Human beings spinning on blackness. All wanting to be seen, touched, heard, paid attention to. My loved ones are everything to me here. In the last year or 3 I’ve screamed at my creator, screamed at clouds in the sky, for some explanation. Mercy maybe. For peace of mind to rain like manna somehow. 4 summers ago, I met somebody. I was 19 years old. He was too. We spent that summer, and the summer after, together. Everyday almost. And on the days we were together, time would glide. Most of the day I’d see him, and his smile. I’d hear his conversation and his silence…until it was time to sleep. Sleep I would often share with him. By the time I realized I was in love, it was malignant. It was hopeless. There was no escaping, no negotiating to the women I had been with, the ones I cared for and thought I was in love with. I reminisced about the sentimental songs I enjoyed when I was a teenager. The ones I played when I experienced a girlfriend too quickly. Imagine being thrown from a plane. I wasn’t in a plane though. I was in a Nissan Maxima, the same car I packed up with bags and drove to Los Angeles in. I sat there and told my friend how I felt. I wept as the words left my mouth. I grieved for then. Knowing I could never take them back for myself. He patted my back. He said kind things. He did his best, but he wouldn’t admit the same. He had to go back inside soon. It was late and his girlfriend was waiting for him upstairs. He wouldn’t tell the truth about his feelings for me for another 3 years. I felt like I’d only imagined reciprocity for years. Now imagine being thrown from a cliff. No, I wasn’t on a cliff. I was still in my car telling myself it was gonna be find and to take deep breaths. I took the breaths and carried on. I kept up a peculiar friendship with him because I couldn’t imagine keeping up my life without him. I struggled to master myself and my emotions. I wasn’t always successful.

*The dance went on. I kept the rhythm for several summers after. It’s winter now. I’m typing this on a plane back to Los Angeles from New Orleans. I flew home for another marred Christmas. I have a windowseat. It’s December 27, 2011. By now I’ve written two albums. This being the second. I wrote to keep myself busy and sane. I wanted to create worlds that were rosier than mine. I tried to channel overwhelming emotions. I’m surprise at how far all of it has taken me. Before writing this I’d told some people my story. I’m sure these people kept me alive, kept me safe. Sincerely, these are the folks I wanna thank from the floor of my heart. Everyone of you knows who you are. Great humans, probably angels. I don’t know what happens now. And that’s alrite. I don’t have any secrets I need kept anymore. There’s probably some small shit still, but you know what I mean. I was never alone, as much as it felt like it. As much as I still do sometimes. I never was. I don’t think I ever could be. Thanks. To my first love, I’m grateful for you. Grateful that even thought it wasn’t what I hoped for and even thought it was never enough, it was. Some things never are. And we were. I won’t forget you. I won’t forget the summer. I’ll remember who I was when I met you. I’ll remember who you were and how we’ve both changed and stayed the same. I’ve never had more respect for life and living than I have right now. Maybe it takes a near death experience to feel alive. Thanks. To my mother. You raised me strong. I know I’m only brave because you were first. So thank you. All of you. For everything good. I feel like a free man. If I listen closely, I can hear the sky falling too.

In his own way, Odd Future’s Tyler, the Creator congratulated Ocean for opening up:

I can see the sentiment, but this also comes across as ridiculously immature.

ocelotl  said about 3 years ago:

Tyler ridiculously immature? :O

Velodrone  said about 3 years ago:

Yeah, I also thought about that.

Tramdriver  said about 3 years ago:

I don't see the immaturity - just seems to be Tyler saying 'Good work!' (or whatever) in his own words. I can picture him when when Tegan & Sarah sent him that latter gritting his teeth trying not to let the cat out of the bag.

Ghostface  said about 2 years ago:

New Earl track. It's DOPE son

anonymous  said about 2 years ago:

that's nice.

RoastOxCrisps  said about 2 years ago:

What does being a toilet entail exactly? Keeping me up at night.

ocelotl  said about 2 years ago:

I puzzled over that for a while too, in the end I figured ''Ima'' = ''I'm going to'' as in ''Ima whoop your ass'' or ''Ima let you finish''.

New Earl is interesting, sounds like he's dropped the shock tactics, more of the Tyler introspection without the Tourette's. words

Ghostface  said about 2 years ago:

yeah it's good he's not rapping about rape and shit anymore. i think he has longevity to him. very keen to hear more new material

Sunnyboyz  said about 2 years ago:

That earl track is incredible. Soo so good.

alec m  said about 2 years ago:

cool song

ocelotl  said about 2 years ago:

So there's been some stupid fuss over Will/Jada Pinkett Smith's daughter getting a buzz-cut. I was more interested to see her choice of T-shirt. She had an insanely catchy hit a couple of years ago... change of musical direction ahead?

NiteShok  said about 2 years ago:

Wrong thread? Swag?

moo-core  said about 2 years ago:

Goblin t-shirt.

tugboat  said about 2 years ago:

They now have a TV show on Adult Swim called Loiter Squad.

shit like this:

moo-core  said about 2 years ago:

Yeah, second season's starting soon. It's all skits and pranks and shit.
