Two Stories Which Eulogise Keith Flint and Luke Perry Perfectly.

Two massive 90s icons passed away yesterday, Prodigy frontman Keith Flint and Hollywood actor Luke Perry.

Flint, who became the poster boy for the 90s rave scene, was found dead at his house in Essex, he was 49 years old. Perry, who broke hearts in the American teen drama Beverly Hills 90210, suffered a massive stroke last week and never recovered. He died yesterday aged 52 at a hospital in Los Angeles.

Loads of people took to social media to recount tales of both men, but one constant emerged and that was of their kindness. Even though it felt like a large portion of our youth had perished here at HMS Friday we took solace from two stories, (one from singer James Blunt and the other from actor Colin Hanks), which we thought perfectly summed up life’s most important lesson. If you be can one thing, in the limited time you have on this planet, be nice. People will remember your actions forever.

I only met him once but the story is too good not tell given todays sad events. My wife and I are on a plane back from Mexico. Couple of rows ahead of us, these two brothers, young kids, are beating the hell out of eachother. Their poor parents are powerless to stop the crying, yelling and screaming. If you're a parent you understand. Sometimes there's nothing you can do. It was like this for close to two hours. Then about 10 minutes before landing it starts to get real bad. Out of no where, a man comes from first class. Hat, beard, sunglasses, blowing up a balloon. He ties it off, hands it off like he's holding out a sword to a king. Kneeling, Head down, arms up. Kids calm down in milliseconds. Plane damn near bursts into applause. 15 minutes longer and it probably would have started WWIII, but we landed before that could happen. We get off the plane, are waiting on line in customs. Finally get a good look at the guy and I say to my wife "Holy shit. I think that balloon man/hero" is Luke Perry". As luck would have it we end up standing next to each other. Out of the blue he turns to me and says some kind words about Fargo, which kinda blew my mind. I start singing his praises about how long I've admired him and also about the move with the balloon. "That's a pro move! You can't teach that!" I say. He tells me he always flies with a couple of balloons for that very reason, to give to screaming kids. Don't know if that's true, but have no reason to believe it wasn't. Guy seemed like a true gent. Gone way too damn soon. Also, I'll be damned if I don't start traveling with some spare balloons 🎈🎈🎈 #promove #rip #lukeperry #truegent

LCD Soundsystem’s Music Vid Brings All The Feels

Here’s the official music video for LCD Soundsystem’s latest track ‘oh baby’ and it’s simplistic beauty makes it one of this year’s best. It stars Sissy Spacek and David Strathairn as two aged scientists frantically trying to map out an extremely complicated equation for something big. I’ll leave it at that. The video is directed by Rian Johnson, a man who surprisingly didn’t wreck out childhood with his brilliant Star Wars: The Last Jedi movie, proving once more he’s a talent to pay attention to.
 

The Big Foo Fighters Announcement Was Hilarious.

For some time there have been rumours flying around the internet that rock band Foo Fighters were on the verge of breaking up, mainly due to further inaccurate speculation that the band considered lead man Dave Grohl to be ‘too Hollywood’.

So when the band issued a statement that an official announcement would be made online everyone automatically assumed the band was finished.

They couldn’t have been more wrong. The announcement itself was nothing short of hilarious.

 

Nicki Minaj Sings About Her Arse.

Here’s the official video for the new Nicki Minaj single Anaconda, which is a song about her arse. Not about poverty, inequality, racism, war or love, just solely a song about her arse and how amazing her large arse is. Her lyrics sound like a typical substance induced Facebook rant by someone whose school years were spent sniffing glue:

Yeah, this one is for my bitches with a fat ass in the fucking club
I said, where my fat ass big bitches in the club?
Fuck the skinny bitches, fuck the skinny bitches in the club
I wanna see all the big fat ass bitches in the motherfucking club
Fuck you if you skinny bitches WHAT?

These are the end of times my friend.

Ariana Grande’s New Music Video Has Rocket Boobs!

I have no idea who Ariana Grande is, but apparently she’s some pop pixie and her full time job is to warble and dress all sexy like. If you don’t know who she is you’ll certainly remember her name after watching her latest music video for her single Break Free.

Like a weary Barbarella parody this video manages to contain something special, something no other video to date has included, something which could be referred to as a ‘game changer’, because this music video has…ROOOOOOOOCKET BEEEEWWWWWBBBBSSSS!

One Direction Molested Teenage Kicks At The Brit Awards.

To be fair their cover of the classic Undertones song is for Comic Relief…which explains why it sounds like a f**king joke!

You’re made of stern stuff if you can make it through to the bitter end. This, Ladies and Gentlemen, is proof that music is dead!

 

CeeLo Green & The Muppets.

This is the weirdest musical collaboration yet. Singer song writer CeeLo Green has teamed up with the cast of The Muppets for a truly terrible song which adapts the official theme tune of The Muppets stuffs it into blender and mixes it with Green’s vocals for some sort of hybrid Christmas song. Let’s not ignore the hilarious irony here as you have an artist who used to beat up homeless people and torture animals is now singing a festive song with all his cute, cuddly, helpless furry friends.
