Pressure Drop

bobby old handsome bigBobby, you’re a handsome bastard.

“Yeah, a lot of people notice that. Lemme ask you a question.”


“Beyoncé dropped her record today?”


“Did it break?”

She didn’t actually drop anything, Bob.

“Then I am officially confused.”

Music doesn’t get released anymore: it gets dropped.

“When did that happen?”

Around the time of hip-hop’s ascension and the corporatization thereof.


‘Releasing’ is just as nonsensical. An eagle nursed back to health gets released; prisoners get released: music is just made available for purchase. It’s all just euphemisms.

“I’ve noticed you enjoy the sound of your own voice.”

Yeah, lots of people notice that.
