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

By Amrit Singh / October 26, 2012 - 7:20 pm

The week after CMJ always feels like the first week of the holiday season. Maybe it’s because the festivals are done for the year, and we begin thinking in earnest about the sorts of lists we will assault you with for the year’s end, or maybe it’s just because we hang out on our couches all day with post-festival-season flus. So, happy holidays y’alls! How did you celebrate the year’s end? Maybe it was with Kendrick Lamar’s possibly-stone-cold-classic Good Kid, m.A.A.d. City? That’s a lot to digest, so it’s fine if you didn’t try to take on much more. In case that is true, though, catch up on Angel Haze’s transcendent spin on Em’s “Cleaning Out My Closet,” and on Wild Nothing’s Michelle Williams-starring video, or Sufjan’s gory claymation Xmas video, or new tracks from the Weeknd, Dirty Projectors, Tegan & Sara, Guided By Voices, Heems, Araabmuzik, Peaking Lights, or Blood Orange’s cover of Lemonade’s permajam “Neptune.” And when you’ve set down Kendrick for a few moments,

#8  Dr. Feelgood | Oct 24th Score:29

What’s the worst case scenario here? We talk about the Velvet Underground? Someone finds a song they didn’t know existed? Tom Hardy, star of the Dark Knight Rises, comments on Stereogum three comments before yours?

I’m gonna just get this out of the way. SOMETHING SOMETHING SOMETHING HEROIN.

But it really is a good list. A good list that is missing Heroin.

#3  Rex Manning Day | Oct 25th Score:54

The fact that Pablo Honey was not placed in the top 3 proves that these lists are not designed exclusively as comment-rage bait.

However, the fact that Pablo Honey was not placed last proves that these lists are designed at least partly as comment-rage bait.

THIS WEEK’S 10 LOWEST RATED COMMENTS

#5  Cerebus | Oct 24th Score:-8

Do you like apples?

….what?

Do you like apples?!

………………yeah.

Well I don’t like the Velvet Underground. How do you like them apples?

Seriously though, I don’t hate them, but they’ve never done for me whatever it is they seem to do for a lot of other people. They always seemed like one of those band that far too many people claim to like because you’re required to like them to be a certain type of “hip”, “indie”, “cool”, “artsy”, “underground”, etc., and if you say you don’t like them, you’ll get ridiculed. Frankly, ridicule doesn’t phase me and peer pressure is lame. I’ve listened to pretty much everything this band has ever done and they just don’t frost my pickle.

I know it’s blasphemy around these parts, but does anybody else feel OK Computer is *ever so slightly* overrated?
I love it, but maybe it’s so definitive of its era sometimes I feel it’s a bit dated. Ever so slightly.
