22. You guys are f*ckers.

Well I can honestly say now I don’t know why.

Other than young men have a healthy preoccupation with what hangs between our legs - and we do stupid shit.

Very stupid shit.

(We were also the guys, lest it be forgotten, who, caught short one Easter weekend, invented The Hazy Sunday: shots of port and bourbon, followed by a grape juice chaser. We liked it so much we drank if for a year.)

To my knowledge, no girl in our crew was ever tempted to tame the tiger. Smart.

Sam had never been initiated and he returned from the toilet now with a faintly disgusted look to find his time had come.

The situation was explained to him.

"And you want me to - "

“Rub it on your balls, bro.”

Sam's expression left us in no doubt as to what he thought of this proposition.

"Don't worry, we've all done it," coaxed Darius.

Joseph, Tim and I nodded.

"But. Why?"

It was a good question, a million dollar question.

"Sam, you’ve got to tame the tiger, at least once," Tim said. "It’s a bonding experience. You want to be bonded don’t you?"

"It’s the bonding I’m worried about.”

But Sam wasn't immune to our purposeful stares, our crowding intent, as none of us had been before him, helped as it was by the generous joint we'd just smoked.

He took a small amount onto his finger.

"More than that," said Darius. He took a larger amount and turned away, fumbled at his pants. When he’d finished, he turned back to find us all wearing the same predatory grins.

"Oh, man, I can't believe you've just done that," I said.

"What?" said Sam. "You guys all have."

"Nah, bro. We just wanted to see if you would," said Tim. "I mean, who rubs Tiger Balm on their balls?"

Sam squirmed, the effects already and obviously being felt. He peered at us, worried now. An interestingly hysterical edge entered his tone. "You're joking right? You've done it before, right?"

"You know, I wouldn't worry Sam," Joseph mused philosophically. "I'm sure you couldn't buy it over the counter if it could do you any real harm. But, bro, you're going to have some pretty hot balls for a while."

We collapsed in hysterics; were bent over in stitches.

"You guys are fuckers," Sam cried casting about for a bottle of water. “Fuckers. Fuckers. Fuckers.”

We let it play out, laughing our arses off all the while, but stopped him just as he was about to douse his pants, let him know we had all in fact tamed the tiger as well. It took some time and some convincing.

After he'd finally put away the bottle of water he shot us one last dark, dark look. "Fuckers."

It kept us amused all the way back to the Trance Zone.

Later, Sam was to get a hug from a cute girl who told him he smelled delicious and wanted to know what aftershave he wore. He didn't know how to explain it was the smell of Tiger Balm wafting up from the front of his pants.

      Hungarian songstress and hitmaker Ameria has collaborated Russian producer HYPRESSION on this new tune called, “Not About You,” and we’re all about it.
      This track, out today via Trap City and Spinnin Records, is all about the slow build and intense release. The first 70 seconds or so of the track are all on the rise with Ameria’s vocals until it crashes down with a reticent fury. The slightly phased, sweeping synth notes cause you to sway your head to and fro, almost without you even realizing it.
      One thing about the track that I feel could be slightly improved upon is the lack of versatility – it’s largely the same looping sequence for the duration of the track. However, to others, that repetition and consistency could be almost hypnotic. It’s all in the eye of the beholder.
      Check out the new track from Ameria & HYPRESSION, “Not About You,” below, out now on Trap City & Spinnin Records.

      My favorite streaming platform just got even cooler with the advent of this new add-on. Found on reddit, of course, simply accept permissions at this link and this aggregator will collect information about your listening habits from Spotify. You can see everything from your Top Artists in the short, mid and long term to your top tracks of right now.
      It’s quick, it’s easy, and it tells you quite a bit about how Spotify looks at your play history to craft customized playlists. There’s a good chance you might even come out a little bit surprised and learn something about yourself by how often you listen to a particular artist or a song.
      Go share with your friends and compare lists to see who has the best musical tastes!

      The reviews are in and Will Smith x DJ Jazzy Jeff‘s “Get Lit” is most definitely not lit…
      Deep down, we all cling to the hope that the once Fresh Prince of Bel-Air was coming from an authentic place when he made the track, but even if that’s true, it didn’t translate well. “Get Lit” has turned out to be the most generic and unlistenable release of the year with no other contenders in sight.
      What’s been described as “dad-like,” “cookie-cutter EDM” and a “total absurdity” is getting ripped apart by music critics across the board. It stings like salt in a deep cut on our hearts — wounds caused because we know the greatness heard with Big Willie Style might not ever make a comeback.
      Smith recently revealed he has 30 more tracks with Jazzy Jeff — so let’s hope they can redeem themselves.
      “Get Lit” Gets Absolutely Savage Reviews Across the Board
      “[Get Lit] is pretty cookie-cutter EDM as far as arrangement and production. It’s got some heavy kicks and staggered synth stabs, with a typical hook in “get lit”… honestly, the song could have been good if Smith and Jazzy Jeff put some more sincere effort into it. As it stands, it really just seems like a bandwagon song with them trying to get some street cred with the young kids.” – Matt Meadow, Your EDM
      “It was endearing when Smith rapped about how parents just don’t understand in 1988, but in 2017, hearing a 49-year-old talk about getting ‘lit’ comes off as a Steve Buscemi, ‘How do you do, fellow kids?’ moment.” – Derrick Rossignol, Uproxx
      “The Wild Wild West movie of Will Smith singles – a frankly f**king mental genre leap that’s actually kinda fascinatingly s**t, rather than the Collateral Beauty of Will Smith singles (just plain sh**). Jaden needs a better password on his laptop, because I am one billion per cent his dad, in actual Yer Da mode, raided his Tidal (Jaden is definitely a Tidal guy), found the playlist titled ‘Major Lazer is doooope!!!!!!!!’ then searched his Facebook inbox for hip young phrases-cum-song titles.” – Al Horner, Fact Mag
      “The real tragedy here is not that the song is bad, which it is. It’s that Smith may be attempting to relive his younger days by updating his party raps and adopting what he thinks the kids will embrace. He doesn’t need to do this, is the weird part, as he definitely doesn’t require the cash nor does he need the cultural cache. What we have is just a man flailing needlessly against the riptide of time.” – Phil Witmer, Noisey
      “The total absurdity of Get Lit renders it not only hilarious, but, in a way, the most profound music Will Smith has ever made. Its vacancy is so pure that it verges on the existential, the mystical – perhaps even the divine, for only a god could be capable of such perfect lack of meaning.” – Frank Guan, Vulture
      “Christ. You know it’s bad if I, a dad, think something is too dad-like. Was this mixed inside a tractor engine? Join us next week when Will drops his next three songs, Woke AF, YASSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS, and [prayer emoji].” – Drew Magary, GQ
      “It’s official. ‘Lit’ is no more. Not when old man Will Smith is building sh**ty, deafening EDM songs around the millennial buzzword.” – Randall Colburn, Consequences of Sound
      “It’s not as desperate as MC Hammer suddenly going gangster, or as out of left field as Bob Dylan rapping with Kurtis Blow, but it’s pretty close to your dad turning up Look What You Made Made Do and doing the Dougie in front of your friends at your bar mitzvah.” – Alex McLevy, AV Club
