According to Last Week's Poll
It had been a while since I'd seen the Internets as upset as they were last week. Those of us with a frame of reference with regard to good music were upset that the new Common album, Finding Forever, is as awful as it is. Meanwhile, those of you who wouldn't know from good rap music got all upset with me just for telling it like it is. Lord, the things I go through just for the sake of journalism. Nullus.
Last week's poll had to do with which Common album was the best.
- Resurrection (176 votes)
- Be (123 votes)
- Like Water for Chocolate (75 votes)
- One Day It'll All Make Sense (36 votes)
- Can I Borrow a Dollar? (15 votes)
- Finding Forever (11 votes)
- Electric Circus (8 votes)
So Resurrection came in first, which was a relief, but otherwise this is one of the more fucked polls I've run in a long time. One Day It'll All Make Sense, i.e. the second-best Common album evar, at least got more votes than the likes of Can I Borrow a Dollar? Finding Forever and Electric Circus, but it still came in way behind Be and Like Water for Chocolate, i.e. the two Common albums for young people and girls.
I did find it interesting that Finding Forever came in next to dead last, just ahead of Electric Circus, after so many of you bitches whined like the girls that you are when I revealed that it isn't any good a couple of weeks ago. Not that anyone in their right minds should have voted for Finding Forever in this poll, but I don't think I'll have any problem taking this as a sign that I was right all along.
Speaking of contentious polls, this week's has the potential to be one of the best/worst evar. I know personally I've rarely had such a hard time deciding which option to vote for. Take some time, think it over, then vote early and vote often.
