"Seriously, Things Are Just Getting Better. We Would Like TO Thank EVERYONE Who Fucks With Us, And Also, EVERYONE Who Didnt Fuck With Us To Begin With ( faggot ass dope boyz). It’s Kind Of Cool That People Like Us, Still Weird Tho. The People That Use To Torment Us And Call Us Weird And Shit Are Now The Same Fucks At Our Shows, So Swag Us The Fuck Out. And For The Record, Could People Still Stop Fucking Saying We Make Horrorcore?We Don’t. That Shit Is Really Fucking Annoying. Some New Videos, Music And Random Shit Coming Soon, Hopefully This New Found Coolness Of OF Wont Fuck Up The Nature Of Us Making Shit Normally. Thanks Guys, We’re Just Some Kids Doing What We Love, And We’re Fucking Good At It, At Least Respect It."

It's safe to say that the Odd Future dudes have been 'killing them all' over the past year or so, even though we here at FBUS hadn't caught a whiff until about a month ago. Guess that makes us "faggot ass dope boyz." This is #1 in a short series about listening to Odd Future.

The first odor that wafted over was that of Earl Sweatshirt's EARL mixtape. From what I can gather almost all of the collective, including Earl, are mad young, like 16. When I was 16 I was bagging groceries and had never seen weed before. Earl's 16 talking about mixing decomposing human remains with shit in a pan, putting it on the stove and eating it. Earl's flow is a sonic NSFW, plus NSFM ("Not Safe For Moms") plus PNSFS ("Probably Not Safe For Squares"). A good intro is the video for "Earl," a drugged and bloody trek through what I assume is a day in the life of a Wolf ("NSFW if you work with Steve Harvey").

The sound is addictive. Sort of a bummer EARL is only 10 tracks long (including 2 skits "Thisniggaugly" and "Wakeupfaggot"), though he's got a few songs on Odd Future's Radical mixtape which are all fantastic.

Here's reasons why Earl Sweatshirt is sick, in bullet-point form:

- "Sent to Earth to poke Catholics in the ass with saws and knock blunt ashes into they caskets and laugh it off"
- "It's O.F., buttercup, go ahead fuck with us - without a doubt a surefire way to get your mother fucked"
- "Try talkin on a blog with your fuckin arms cut off"
- "Snapple fact you're rather wack"
- "I'm back on my sixty-six-six shit flowin like the blood out the competition's slit wrist"
- "The basement light is dark and the switchblade is sharp and her name on my arm and her face on a 2% carton"
- the ENTIRE last verse of "epaR" (final minute or so)
- "The Odd nigga with a spoon in your Danimals is hungry as a cannibal trapped in a van of cantaloupes"
- Earl's verses over "Drop" ("I'm a nice guy in person but a pervert in the sheets")
- Pretty sure he's referring to himself when he says "Who dat? Oh, that new coon John Cusack"
