    'Aladdin' - Will as Genie

    Should be a great role for him tbh, actually looking forward to it.

    Movement on Bad Boys III

    It was always a bad idea making this movie and it seems the producers has made some realisation that its far from a safe commercial success as well, so they fill it with bad rappers to secure the Adidas wearing wannabe-gangster audience. Its going to be bad, but when did Will do his latest wise career move..? A very long time ago.

    The Next Will Smith ‘Golden Era’?

    If we talk mere stardom, its not happening. He wont reach those heights, neither will anyone else 50+ and possibly no-one in general since in the 90's one good album or one good movie could still make you a superstar for 2-3 years without making any efforts. I think its safe to say that - maybe aside from a few lunatics (Kanye) and girl favorites (Rihanna etc) - no one will reach the global and pretty longlasting stardom of actors like Will Smith, Brad Pitt, Johnny Depp, Bruce Willis etc. or artists like Will, Eminem, Spice Girls etc. Speaking quality wise, Will could not possibly do worse in the next years than in the last ten years. But Hollywood is still in this "special effects over substance"-phase that has been dragging on for very long now. As long as this is the case, quality is bound to be generally pretty bad. And it could last a while with the old Jurassic Park still looking better than The Hobbitt/Avatar etc...
  4. Excellent, dear Nancy! Now on to some Reddit comments... " Something is fishy here. The “VHS”/old tape artifacts are completely faked on this video. Video tape audio is fm modulated and doesn’t hiss until the tape gets nearly unwatchable. Likewise tracking problems do not introduce issues with vertical hold. Problems that do occur on poorly preserved consumer tape such as wah and flutter and loss of tracking are not present and inconsistent with the chroma errors that are seen. This recording was sourced from a very high quality master and then artificially degraded. I have seen much better fake tape effects in vaporwave videos. The question is why? Edit: omg the two second golden girls cut is just flies on this steaming pile of ****" "The beginning title has tape hiss and the same crappy editing over it, but obviously the video didn't air on tv that way with that long title card. If it was a home recording from MTV it would have the typical credits overlay over the beginning and end of the video in the bottom left corner. If the blue title screen was part of the production copy, you'd think they would have deleted that before releasing it to the public if the editing job was an effort to cover up the source material. Whole thing makes no sense." "I work for a company that digitizes VHS tapes (amongst other things) and I thought the tracking issues looked forced rather than authentic. On old VHS tapes with bad tracking the picture quality is way worse than this and way more glitchy looking. I don't think I'm adequately describing what it looks like but having watched thousands of hours of old VHS tapes I can tell you it doesn't ever look like this." So mr Townes/Smith/lawyer of Smith or Townes, couldnt you maybe leak... the other version... to someone in here, like Hero1? Regardless: THANK YOU VERY MUCH! We have been looking for years!
  5. http://mentalfloss.com/article/505609/time-freddy-krueger-became-nightmare-will-smith “It is in this month that many individuals will make their decision whether Nightmare IV is a film that they are interested in viewing,” wrote Ward in his decision. “Thus, the telecast of the lower quality DJ Jazzy Jeff video with the somewhat silly and less frightening Freddy could dissuade an unspecified number of individuals from seeing the film.” The injunction was granted, with a full hearing to be held at a later date. That didn’t happen—both parties settled out of court. While the song remained on the record, it began to ship with a disclaimer that it wasn’t associated with New Line; the video, which had aired only briefly on MTV, was pulled, and the court ordered that all copies be destroyed." Nothing new I guess but the last line is interesting because that would mean that its still not "safe" to release the video even if someone got a copy of it (which we certainly do believe, right?) as it was not only pulled but ordered destroyed. I still have a feeling we'll see it one day... remember how it took many years before the "The Things That U Do" video resurfaced?
  6. Deserves its own topic, dont you think? Anyway: interestingly a lot of tech people say that this is actually artificially degraded to look like a VHS copy while in reality it is a high quality master tape. Someone has made it look worse in order to avoid being sued. Would be nice if anyone who has a lot of JJFP videos on their tube could PM the uploader and perhaps ask for the better version.
  7. Is that good or bad? Not gonna hear the song, no way I listen to any latino pop collaboration bull**** with or without Will. Bad Bunny, that the guy from Looney Tunes or the guy from Who Framed Roger Rabbit? Either way, **** him, as Will would say these days. Its fun to see Will obviously being a lot more into music, or at least "music", then a few years ago but I cant imagine how it can be so hard to just move that rock he put Jazzy Jeff under and actually do something even vaguely unique. But ye, also hoping for an album soon. Maybe some kind of pop-latino-EDM album called "Lost & Found and then Lost again, now somewhere in Bolivia".

    Happy 50th bday will

    Celebrated by hearing all the albums again. Was a while ago. Still great stuff. Eternally great. Lost & Found didnt age that well though lol. Whoever wrote Wills lyrics did a good job but the production is sloppy at best and sounds very stuck in 2005. The rest though... been listening on a lot of JJFP the last few years but very little from Wills solo stuff. Big Willie Style is just so insanely good, every single track.
  9. Sure, I fully expect them to perform at least two more times over the next decade. In about 2026 or so I also fully expect a new rap verse and perhaps a new remix of Summertime.

    JJFP Urban Music Festival Concert

    Five years later its obviously time again. I NEED THIS. Back in 05', when there was a topic about the best JJFP performance, more or less everyone went for this. The video's are not interesting as I think only Switch and Summertime was broadcast, but the audio of this set is... I NEED THIS. They were both on fire that night but Jeff was JUST INSANE and I find myself thinking about this performance a couple of times every year. It cant be lost forever, someone needs to have it :(
  11. Cursing is not a problem, it wont scare off his fanbase because his fanbase is about 30-40 years old and capable of dealing with a bit of cursing. As long as he doesnt go down the "I smoke crack everyday with my hoes and bitches while having gold in my mouth"-path its all good. I think his career will survive (well, not die more) a "**** Donald Trump" everyone now and then.
  12. "Smith admits he’s now allowing himself the space to lean into his authenticity (or, in his words, “I’m granting myself the freedom to not give a **** when I don’t give a ****"). Part of that sounds like it's in the music he’s cooking up. It’s still an extremely shadowy project, but he described one record he’s working on called “The Mountaintop.” “The idea is...I’ve been to the top of money, I’ve had all the sex that I’ve ever wanted, I’ve had all of the adoration,” he said. “I’ve been to the top of all those material world mountains and nothing makes you happy other than being useful to others. That’s it. That’s the only thing that ever will satisfy that thing, is that what you’re doing is useful.”"

    Will's new album

    Either he works with Jeff or I might just ignore the whole album. Following his career, I dont trust one bit in his ability to choose the right collaborators, so Jeff is a must.
  14. Technically, this is the highlight of his and any other event. Might not be fully understood in the States but this is the biggest event in the world and depending on certain stuff (how good/catchy it is and how good/catchy the other official songs are) he could reach a public of about 1 billion, a FANTASTIC relaunch of his career. I remember horrible Swedish artist E-Type making the offical song for Euro 2000, called "Campione", and he went from being more or less musically dead to a revival that (unfortunately) gave him plenty years of sales and success.
  15. Yeah that was nice! Not that I think Will wrote it but its at least very much his style, if he would have kept going in that "Get Lit"-direction I dont really know how much I would have bothered to care of his music...

    Get Lit

    Nice. Gonna email Will some eight grade things I wrote & just wait for the money.

    Get Lit

    As the eternal bringer of darkness, I think the song is shiet. It sounds a lot like something from one of those "hey we just found some new electronical noise to play around with"-eras. Its very unoriginal (if thats a word). Then again, I'm just a hardcore sucker for sampling nice old soul/funk/jazz and I have a very hard to relate to "club scene" things because it just doesnt work for me. Personally, I would prefer if they renewed old concepts instead of somewhat desperately trying to keep up with changing times... I mean its not like the "times" of today is something to hang onto anyway...

    Suicide Squad Marketing

    Not that surprising though, most superhero movies got a pretty low rewatch value as they are kind of dependent on innovation and surprise rather than twisted storylines and other types of "depth".
  19. I started to smoke weed in 2008 and since 2011 or so it has been my main activity, slowly but surely killing off any ideas of love, career, housing and other stuff adult people might want. There is this building in my town which is pretty much a hippie-ghetto, where there is a lot of people like me and we sort of pull eachother down though we have a lot of fun as well. I have tried more or less all other drugs as well but luckily not gotten sucked in to anything beside the weed. But tomorrow I am finally moving from this city where I have spent all my life... and its going to be nice with a fresh start. I intend to write a lot and avoid weed (though it is likely I will smoke if its shoved in my face) and build something that at least resembles the life of a grown-up.

    New music - caution in the wild

    I dont use smartphones, anyone know how to hear it?
  21. I think he is terrified of rejection. He is obsessed with being succesfull, understandably when people have praised you, loved you and copied you since you were 17 years old. If he feels his music fails, he will be reluctant to try it again. When his "serious movies" failed, he went back to doing "sci-fi-superhero"-shiat because its where love came from. When he understood that he is no longer the hottest thing in the market and does no longer appeal to kids, he sent out his own to extend himself. And remember, the last time around he made music, "Lost & Found", he was more concerned with success than with the quality of the music - hence 50centish songs like "Switch" and "Party Starter" and the lack of Jeff. If he would release music today I'm not even sure it would be any good as he is without any doubt separeted from his roots and on a weird, confusing path to forgottenness.

    Suicide Squad

    Saw it yesterday. Like with 98% of all Hollywood movies the first half hour is really good before it turns into this painful, boring mess that really force you into complete apathy regarding the story and the characters. Its bad, its been done before and there is no way of judging Will's performance since the script is ****.
