Went to HEB just a little bit ago to get some ice cream. On the way I thought I’d turn on the radio. Nothing particularly good on the presets so I hit the “seek” button…and was promptly rewarded with the ass (and I do mean ass) end of Blake Shelton’s “Boys ‘Round Here” leading into the latest from Eric Church on Y100. If that’s not a perfect snapshot of the demise of mainstream country music and terrestrial country radio I don’t know what is. I am glad I am seeing it in San Antonio instead of Southeast Texas, because if I had seen the death of my beloved KILT up close and personal I probably would have cried. I can only imagine how bad it was for the good people who made that station what it was.
Looks like Chris Brown’s in trouble again for — you guessed it! — being a violent little punk. He wasn’t beating up on a woman this time, so I suppose that’s progress in its own twisted way. Just the same, though, I think it’d be fun to see what might have happened had his victim had a gun:
“Unrepentant rapper with history of violence picks fight with armed man, gene pool cleansed a little more. Film at 11.”
