Shut Up, Dude: This Week’s Best And Worst Comments

By Amrit Singh / June 8, 2012 - 4:20 pm

What a week. It was a week of heroes and villains! It was a week of drama. It was a week of introductions (meet our new news editor, Michael Nelson!). We helped Beach House make their case against Volkswagen. We had Erykah Badu dutifully ask Wayne Coyne to “kiss her glittery ass.” We welcomed back Grizzly Bear via “Sleeping Ute” and recapped their individual activities during their collective hibernation. We heard new Radiohead. We canonized the Walkmen.

We got real this week, and thereby you guys did, too, with some absolutely terrific and absolutely terrible comments. Let’s do the honors:

THIS WEEK’S 10 HIGHEST RATED COMMENTS

Everyone is excused from work for the rest of the day!!! Go home, listen on repeat, enjoy life!

#9  plb102 | Jun 1st Score:20

“A beautiful and poignant ending to an otherwise hollow tale with boring dialogue and minimal character development.”

2 1/2 stars

She’s got his phone number, why doesn’t she just call him and talk it out instead of tweeting? Gawd I fucking hate twitter. It makes your argument a lot more ridiculous when you have to spell you as “yu”

Joe Howse | Jun 4th Score:22

Love this, especially the screaming that comes in around 2:15

#5  plb102 | Jun 1st Score:23

Not cool MUF. I’m obviously not sure, but I think it’s at least possible that Michael_ is legit depressed.

I’m a fan of M_’s comments, the whinier the better.

Isn’t it weird tho how if any of us dropped dead no one on here would know about it. Like if I got murdered the news story wouldn’t say I was survived by a wife, a son, and everyone who like PLB102′s comments on stereogum.

Wesley Morgan Paraham | Jun 7th Score:24

Exactly the kind of response you’d expect from a 51 year old man that accessorizes.

Nathan Christensen | Jun 1st Score:24

I think the final chapter of this story should involve an action-packed sequence on a real erupting volcano, where raptor jesus and Michael_ discover the true meaning of friendship.

What’s his policy on top hats?

“I want to see the final edit of the video of my sister spanking her ass in a tub full of glitter, blood and semen-substitutes JUST IN CASE IT LOOKS WEIRD!”

THIS WEEK’S 5 LOWEST RATED COMMENTS

#5 

Jordy Kasko | Jun 7th Score:-11

Because there’s much more to being a feminist than making every dispute about gender and getting outraged at everything.

Anyway, the video was beautiful. All of the other crap does not affect that one simple fact.

Why is this news? Did this come from Axl and the GNR camp? Or are you just spreading rumors again?

#3  indiecredible | Jun 5th Score:-13

Great stuff– Grizzly Bear is always true quality. However, I do wonder why Stereogum never posts anything about The Temper Trap! Honestly, its surprising with the new album being released in America today. “London’s Burning” is pure brilliance.

#2  p00rtina | Jun 5th Score:-13

I’m gonna go down in flames for this but I really don’t like this song…….Some of the guitar sounds rule and background noises are cool….But overall the song is so boring. I know Jonny Greenwood said they were his favorite band but they need to get off Radiohead’s dick

#1  MagicUnicornFairy | Jun 1st Score:-27

and would we be happy about it, if it did happen?
That is the real question.
