I agree 100%. I think the halftime shows are total bullshit. Takes the teams out of their rhythms. Obviously, it is only for the non-fans in the room. Makes me look at the Super Bowl as it if is an exhibition game for recruiting new fans.

And I am so glad Denver won. I have always been a Peyton Manning fan, AND, I am a huge fan of the defensive side of the game. I knew Von Miller was going to make an impact, especially after what he did to New England in the AFC Championship game.

And now I get to concentrate on being a LOS ANGELES Rams fan! My team is coming home!

Peyton played just good enough. Played with his head and got it done. After having just about the most un-Peyton like year of his career, he has to feel like the luckiest guy on Earth right now. Just shows that the old cliche is true - defense wins championships.

Folks its all about marketing and appealing to the "wider audience" The money is in merchandising and commercials so if more people stick around at halftime for the show more people see the commercials which cost like a million dollars for 30 seconds or some insane amount. the half-time show is not about the game or about anything other than way to make even more money. Greed is the one thing that never stops feeding.

This half-time show was really bad. I think they should have a better way to manage it by now but it just gets more stupid each year.

You know what they say a fool and his money are soon parted. I think Peyton is great but his speech to include Budwiser had to be paid oh the humanity of it all.
Excuse me I'm thirsty all of a sudden.

And, although I was not a fan before, I have to say that Bruno Mars was pretty outstanding last year, as well. Didn't quite make a fan out of me, but I sure did gain a whole hell of a lot of respect for the guy. And, you have to admit, "Uptown Funk" is a pretty goddamn great song. Undeniable.

I bring you the lyrics to Beyonce's song.

Y'all haters corny with that illuminati mess
Paparazzi, catch my fly, and my cocky fresh
I'm so reckless when I rock my Givenchy dress (stylin')
I'm so possessive so I rock his Roc necklaces
My daddy Alabama, Momma Louisiana
You mix that negro with that Creole make a Texas bama
I like my baby hair with baby hair and afros
I like my negro nose with Jackson Five nostrils
Earned all this money but they never take the country out me
I got a hot sauce in my bag, swag

[Interlude: Messy Mya + Big Freedia]
Oh yeah, baby, oh yeah I, ohhhhh, oh, yes, I like that
I did not come to play with you hoes, haha
I came to slay, bitch
I like cornbreads and collard greens, bitch
Oh, yes, you besta believe it

[Refrain: Beyoncé]
Y'all haters corny with that illuminati mess
Paparazzi, catch my fly, and my cocky fresh
I'm so reckless when I rock my Givenchy dress (stylin')
I'm so possessive so I rock his Roc necklaces
My daddy Alabama, Momma Louisiana
You mix that negro with that Creole make a Texas bama
I like my baby hair with baby hair and afros
I like my negro nose with Jackson Five nostrils
Earned all this money but they never take the country out me
I got a hot sauce in my bag, swag

[Chorus: Beyoncé]
I see it, I want it, I stunt, yellow-bone it
I dream it, I work hard, I grind 'til I own it
I twirl on them haters, albino alligators
El Camino with the seat low, sippin' Cuervo with no chaser
Sometimes I go off (I go off), I go hard (I go hard)
Get what's mine (take what's mine), I'm a star (I'm a star)
Cause I slay (slay), I slay (hey), I slay (okay), I slay (okay)
All day (okay), I slay (okay), I slay (okay), I slay (okay)
We gon' slay (slay), gon' slay (okay), we slay (okay), I slay (okay)
I slay (okay), okay (okay), I slay (okay), okay, okay, okay, okay
Okay, okay, ladies, now let's get in formation, cause I slay
Okay, ladies, now let's get in formation, cause I slay
Prove to me you got some coordination, cause I slay
Slay trick, or you get eliminated

[Verse: Beyoncé]
When he fuck me good I take his ass to Red Lobster, cause I slay
When he fuck me good I take his ass to Red Lobster, cause I slay
If he hit it right, I might take him on a flight on my chopper, cause I slay
Drop him off at the mall, let him buy some J's, let him shop up, cause I slay
I might get your song played on the radio station, cause I slay
I might get your song played on the radio station, cause I slay

Bey is not fat! She is a musical athlete who has the rare ability to sing, dance and never get out of key. She is one of the most beautiful women in the world. Her body is proportional to her height and body form. Many Black women are curvy like her. That does not make them fat. A fat person could never do what she does. You probably think Serena Williams is fat to. But the fact remains that she is the number rated female tennis player in the entire world. It seems so easy to people sitting on the couch eating kale chips. But the reality is that only a few people have been able to do what Beyonce does. She has sold millions and millions of records and travelled the world thrilling fans of all cultures.

Bruno is a fantastic Pop artists with multiple abilities also. He also sings and dances as good as the best of them. He's a world renowned vocalist, songwriter, producer, choreographer and musician. You may not like the kind of music he does. Different strikes for different folks. He probably doesn't like the kind of music you do either. The only difference is that millions of people all over the world love the little guy and his music. Maybe the problem is not his music. Maybe it is your musical taste. I have listened to several of his CD's over and over and I must say that he is very versatile as he does Reggae, Pop, Rock, Soul, Gospel and Funk. I have studied his work and I am seriously impressed with his abilities.

I thought the half time show was one of the best ever. My wife and I were up on our feet dancing. Granted, I never knew anything about Coldplay or their music. But I was impressed with their attempt to unify cultures by inviting Bruno and Bey to perform with them. The rousing finale with everybody (multiple cultures) up on stage in unity was a much needed thing to see. This is an age where separation, intolerance and hatred are having a huge resurgence through out the world and my nation. The images of cultures coming together should be celebrated and cherished. Quite a bummer to see that some folks are still drinking huge helpings of hater aid. I am not ashamed to say that I love todays R&B/Pop artists who are not afraid to portray issues of the day in their music. Also, I love Uptown Funk. It's got that old school funk feel on it. That's my shit right there. I love that sound and it always makes me and my friends get up and dance. I am currently working on a new Funk CD. Judging by reactions here, I probably should not post any of those songs here. You guys would definitely hate it. But hey, I don't give a funk! I love to get funked up. Diversity is not such a bad thing. We should try it.........

I'm kinda all about the actual game, and even though some of the acts I like - McCartney, Bruce, Who, Bruno...a lot of the time they aren't representative of what made'em great,all the over the top bombastic stuff is too overshadowing of whatever I'd like to be digging. I actually like a lot of Coldplay, but I swear there was about 10% of essence de coldplay in evidence. Bruno was looking like he wanted to be a Michael Jackson back from the dead instead of that cool, get down retro r 'n' b guy.
I'm blaming the way-too-long halftime for Peyton, in 2011, coming out in the 3rd qtr, throwing a pick-six to the Saints. Too long for the players to stay focused.
Glad that Peyton got that 2nd ring, even if he was just a game manager. Looked like Eli was a bit subdued while the rest of the Mannings were whooping it up. hmmm...
I read a lot of people saying it was not the most watchable football, but that was a lot of great defense. What Denver did to Big Ben, Brady & Cam in consecutive weeks was the work of the best D since the '85 Bears.

Beyonce's legs are totally fat. Her music's obnoxious.
Her husband has no talent, though a lot of business sense.
Cop Lives Matter. And it's Hip Hop that ever suggested otherwise,
which is why you have to have a "Black Lives Matter" 'movement' now.
No one addresses the elephant that ya'll put in the room; Hip Hop,
with it's advocating 'Cop Killers' and 'F*** Tha Police' crap,
and then you act surprised when the cops are walkin' on a hairline trigger.
Also, Alternative Action, is neither. It's not acceptable as an alternative,
and it's by no means any positive action. For a white guy, to really bust
his ass and be the best at something, and then a black guy not tryin'
half as hard, gets the job, just 'cause he's black? F*** That Noise,
that's only going to make more white people hate black people,
like, everyone who should have gotten the job, and instead
saw it go to someone less qualified, just because they're black.

Community Colleges, FREE, needs to happen.
It's an investment in the Nation.
Do black people need more opportunity? Sure they do. So let it be so.
But let it be so without taking away, from other groups of people.

And let Cop Lives Matter As Much As Black Lives Matter
And White Lives Matter And ALL LIVES MATTER.

And Fat Legs Fat Legs Beyonce Got Some Fat Legs.

OK no one had to say it - and what sexist crap is that - Beyonce is gorgeous, but what if she did have fat legs? She's not a model, she's a musician and a dancer. She's not one of the artists that makes it all about her looks. It's a free country and we can all love whatever music we love. ALL of us - even if you don't happen to be a black woman and don't have a clue as to what injustice Beyonce is speaking about.

Russ,

Yeah some of that is really bad and I certainly wouldn't want children to be listening to it. Some of it is funny. Especially the reference to Red Lobster. Red Lobster says they have had an immediate boost in business since the song came out. But, if you study my catalog you will see that I don't write lyrics like that. I do write some songs with ebonic slang as it is only meant to be understood by folks from the hood. But this is heavily laced with ebonic slang and overshadowed by perverse sexual references., That in itself destroys any notion of this being a song of any real purpose or deep meaning. However, from a production standpoint, the song rocks! Performed live with all of the beautiful women gyrating it is quite an eye and earful. But who is listening to the lyrics. Nobody. It's all about that bass. So yeah, lyrically it does have some overtly offensive moments. Would I buy it? Naw, I only have one Beyoncé CD that I never even listen to. She is an amzing artist to see but I have other listening tastes. Shit, I listen to my own music most of the time. That's how I find the flaws.

sometimes we can make our music too perfect Stoneman. right, i think so,. some of us get way anal. and it gets in the way of the project, but music is entertainment as you pointed out, heavy on the ear and eye candy. little in the way of content.lyric wise. its complicated. you been doing this far longer then me in producing tracks, so you have a whole lot more experience and insight. as for me, still learning, neophyte, Luddite still climbing the ladder trying to get to were some of you are already at, will i maybe not, but trying

I worked in a band where we did tracks live off the floor and then threw away some of those tracks and laid down more tracking later on various instruments. I got into a disagreement on one song which I stated, it is getting too over produced, and too much and actually the live take had more energy and realness to it then the final product, i did not like it, but was just a sideman.

The guy running it of course gets the last say. so it is also a personal thing, sometimes we can over complicate and over do something, stacking the shit out of it. then it loses its appeal and becomes contrived

ALJ,

I love those "fat legs" that Beyoncé has. She is sooooooo sexy. Ummmmmm. They are so beautiful and perfectly rounded. The suppleness of her huge butt makes me pant heavily and dream torridly hot dreams of those fat legs rapped around my face. Come on say it some more dude. Fat legs, fat legs, damn I love fat legs. Millions of men and women want those fat legs. She is divine, beautiful, sensuous and the Queen B. I think she looks great for a woman who has gone through child birth. Not many women look as good as she does physically after child birth.

As for all that other crap about Hip-Hop being the reason for this, that and the other thing, well, if you were a Black person I would take your critique very seriously. But because you're not and your biased words are just useless dribble that you have been salivating to say ever since our last encounter. Sure, we can look at the elephant in the room. The one who claims to identify with Black people and then writes a song with a racist title. Now, you want to bring up all this stuff about affirmative action. Huh? WTF? How did all of that get in this discussion? We were talking about the Superbowl half time show and then here you come with all the political crap. Dude I got one word for you. ""Therapy". Some of your personalities, or should I say channeled people may need to talk to someone else for a change. You have anger issues that are unnecessarily being directed towards me. I wonder why. Is it because I have a different opinion than yours? Get use to it. Not everybody believes what you believe. Or, are you still angry about the one song of yours that I hated? What about all the other songs that I gave you praise about? How many times did I say I thought you were a great artist? I know, I know, the negative crap always stands out the most. One song out of the thousands you have produced does not define you. But it does give insight into where your head is spinning these days. You seem to be very attracted to negative crap. Black Lives Matter, affirmative action and all that other crap are not up for discussion right now. Therapy really works man. I did 6 years of it at the veterans hospital. I have PTSD. Did me a world of good. Helped me to get rid of some of my anger issues. I highly recommend it to anyone who has issues like yours. But you can start a thread about all your negative issues with Black people and I am sure that all of your racist little friends will pile up their negative remarks in support of your ideas. I mean, this place has certainly become a bastion of negativity. Instead of enjoying the biggest game of the year and all the annual nuances that come with it. You folks go straight to negative criticism about performances that were widely applauded and enjoyed throughout the world. You are the great ALJ. Make it happen dude. Start a thread so you can really rant about how bad all Black people are and how much you hate our music. I could care less about you and all of your political crap.

But hey, I do like those Fat legs you were talking about. Damn. Beyoncé! So Hot!!!!! My wife has fat legs also. That's the way I like them! uuuum FAT LEGS!

Bryon,

I know exactly what you mean. I have spent hours of time fixing songs that were not even broken. Part of being a producer is the obsession for perfection. I have yet to master that. I don't think I have ever done a perfect song. I have done some that were close but I am still trying to reach what seems to be unreachable. You have a great catalog with lots of really good music Bryon. Plus, your live playing abilities are exceptional. With the exception of horns and voice. I was never a great live musician. They always stuck me out in front of the microphone as the lead vocalist. That was my place even though I wrote and produced most of the songs. All I am saying is that I have great respect for musicians that can do it live like you do. You Rock Man!

Beyonce looks amazing but I think we should bring back the traditional marching band and get back to the game.

Yeah, they could bring back the marching bands and most people would do what they use to do. Go party until the game comes back on. Actually, that wouldn't be such a bad thing. :)

Stick to topic, huh. Okay maybe they'll make interesting songs. Whatever.

I liked Paul McCartney's halftime show, he opened with "Drive My Car", real decent version of it too. But of late, he and Ringo seem a bit staid. Sad really.
Here I am channeling John Lennon & George Harrison, and they should join BEATLESEX and then we'd have a worldwide phenomenon, but alas, they are both pussies now. Please don't tell me I'm not allowed to say 'pussies'. They say it on television by now for Heaven's sake.

I think the Native American flute accompaniment on O' Canada was fine. It would have worked if she sang it right. That was a most awful hatchet job, indeed.

Stoneman, I only now noticed you actually did reply to my run-on-the-mouth.

Not that I don't think I raised some points worth addressing...
but what the f*** they have to do with the superbowl... is nothing, really.
I don't even like football, and have hardly ever even watched the damned game,
even the 'precious superbowl'... could give a f*** less.

It's true, I was lividly pissed at you,
because you criticized me, when you had not even heard the tune.
Frankly, I'll bet you STILL have not heard the damned thing,
and by now, I don't care. I really don't.

As for social issues, they tend to work themselves out.
It happens, it's happening now. I really don't need to worry about any of that.

I'm not angry anymore, and the fighting is meaningless....
You're an old man, I'm an old man/woman thing, I'm past even arguing about it.

That song did indeed stick up like crazy blue blazes for
all the black people getting whacked one after the other left and right,
and I knew of no other white person who made such a stand,
I still don't. And now, after your wiping the floor up with me figuratively
speaking, in terms of roundly criticizing me for using a particular word,
while not even checking out exactly How I Had Used That Word,
In Exactly Which Context, literally, as one myself,
because there's some accuracy to what Ice T said,
"everybody's a n***** to a n*****" and you have no idea
I've reckoned myself as 'God's n*****' and I'm sure, less do you care.

I even have some rap things, that, since I mentioned the "Cop Killer" author,
Ice-T, I did a rap thing that he liked so much, he allowed it posted
on his MySpace... 'It's A War On The Poor' was one....
'That's Why I'm A Negro' was another...
but these are all academic arguments, certainly to you it is apparent.
Because you only see white, so none of my words even rack a score.

That's fine. It gives me occasion to revisit much of how I've felt
in recent times. I still may put some of this rap stuff I've done out,
and as for my channeled friends, well George never liked that stuff, rap that is.
John on the other hand, has done some, and for the hell of it,
we may put that out as well...

Sometimes I feel like an outsider, but really, I'm just an old white man.
Some think of us as 'society's losers', are we that? Time Will Tell, I suppose.

That said, I do know, some are seeing the emperor is butt-ugly naked,
and there's no stuffing that cat back into the bag.

I've often wondered,
'how could black music, have been so good when I was a kid,
and be so damned awful now?'
I still don't know the answer.

Kanye West the other night on Saturday Night Live.

What even WAS that noodley electronic rappish crap?
It's 'new' ... it's 'different'.... it's still a naked emperor.

I'm an old man, you're an old man.
The truth is, nobody not even us gives a damn about our opinion anyway.
But you, you're old enough to remember real music.
Yeah some people like fat legs, great. Fat legged women are glad.

Glad you have someone who makes it happen for you.
May you, my friend, NEVER, have to experience what I did,

Vanessa, my late wife,
was not a tough act to follow.
She was an impossible act to follow.

I'm only glad as all hell that I didn't put it together,
the fragmented memories I had, of my childhood,
because once I realized I'd been raped as a child,
nothing downstairs worked anymore if ya get my drift.
And don't recommend viagra or cialis or any of that crap
because that ain't for me, I don't want it, thanks a whole lot, but no.

You have someone. You lucky lucky human being.
I hope you know, just how lucky you are.

And as for this sparring about what music sucks,
and what doesn't, somewhere in the Pipeline,
John pointed it out, none of that crap matters,

the only thing that matters, is provide contrast,
create the thing that Doesn't Suck, if you can,
only then, is a distinction made....

Or as Eric Clapton put it in 'It's In The Way That You Use It',

'nobody's right, till somebody's wrong,
nobody's weak, till somebody's strong,
nobody's lonely, till somebody's gone,
nobody's lucky, till luck comes along...
It's in the way that you use it...
it comes and it goes...
it's in the way that you use it...
oh boy don't you know...
and if you like you will lose it...
feelings will show....
so don't you ever refuse it...
yeah and don't let it go....'

those words fill my soul...
filling me with my only remaining purpose,
to find that lost chord, to write that better song.
To remind people, if I'm not already so destroyed that it's impossible
and I should simply kill myself,

'there is better music than this crap'.

We can call that my opinion.
OH and regarding your sales pitch for therapy?
Glad it worked for you. It's not for me.

Take a piece of paper.
Write on it 'therapist'.

Now get a scissors, and cut that paper
after the first three letters,

"the rapist", is what that word becomes. No thanks. Already been raped.

Now, here's a thought, consider this conversation, is over,
has run it's course, there is nothing left to talk about.
Right now, people are out there buying all this crap that laughs
in the face of good music, maybe they'll keep buying it,
maybe they won't. That's about all that CAN be said about it.

As for the other issues, like alternative action,
you're right, they're not up for discussion, because no one was
discussing them. It is out of nowhere, and can go back there for now.

Pretty much, I'm out of nowhere, and I'm happy to go back,
I did, I died. God wouldn't let me stay dead. That's the truth.
Heaven don't want me, Hell's definitely afraid I'll take over.

TERRIBLE Canadian anthem. Besides being pitchy, I hated the liberties she took with that fine melody.
Liked the SS Banner though. Nice intelligent alternate arrangement. Should put that under the extended intro of Father Time's little ode to Barry Bonds.

Thanks, I think that was a compliment. :)

Lesley you hit upon something there. I think about that all the time, my kids growing up to such weak music for their "music of the streets". When we grew up it was enriching, now it's abrasive, shitty.

I remember this time I was at a high school event at an inner city school. As we were leaving, getting on the bus, there was a group of girls over by a bench, singing together, it sounded so beautiful. The song was the Stylistics new song that had just come out, Break Up To Make Up, I hadn't heard it yet but when I finally did on the radio, I of course went and bought the 45. We got to hear Marvin, Aretha, the Stones and Led Zep. They get Taylor Swift, Katy Perry and Kanye.

The heart has been ripped out of music by the bigwigs who control it. They do not ever want to see another Summer of Love again. They do not want creativity and progressivism in music. They do not want another scene to arise.

Do you think it's directly intentional, or maybe that they're just such simpletons they stick to a business plan that tries to find bands to push that are similar to the last one they were successful with?

I think it is totally intentional. I think the government is even involved in this shit. Revolutions arise because of music and the last thing the government needs is a bunch of radical musicians turning on the world.

... So they created this game show to trivialize music to the point where no one will ever be taken seriously for their music ever again because no one really says anything important anymore. Damn, my 1992 album Nobody For President is more relevant than most of the fake garbage being released today. And a bunch of you also have relevant music that inspires, but no one fucking wants that anymore because they have been force-fed game show bullshit and no longer want serious thought with their music. And I think that sucks.
