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

By Scott Lapatine / January 4, 2013 - 5:58 pm

And we’re back. It’s the first Shut Up, Dude of the year, and the first post of the day because something happened to our server last night. I don’t know what, exactly, but we looked into the node rebuild status (?) and things are stable again. Thanks for bearing with us. Anyway. Earlier this week we surveyed the year in comebacks, the creative potential of domestic bliss, and the economic plight of the working musician. We heard new tunes from AlunaGeorge, Local Natives, and Skrillex. We played d-J with alt-J. And we met Kanyeti. I know some of you made resolutions to write wittier comments in 2013. You can start below…

#17 guys? Really? I find it hard to believe there were only 16 comments better than mine and even more difficult to believe that Donnytilla was let down so badly. He truly is the Perfume Genius of Stereogum commenters.

Not bragging or anything, but I was mentioned 3 times on this list. Fiona Apple was only mentioned twice. I consider this my greatest achievement of 2012.

Sort of a technical on The Books, must’ve been early in the year.

Also, am I the only person on earth glad that Das Racist is over and people can like some new crappy thing?

Lyrics.

… I can tell ya who what when where how
To sell ya game right on time
Beeitch!!! (go play) Beeitch!!! (go play)
Beeitch!!! (go play) Beeitch!!! I look like OJ
Killing everything from pussy to a mothafuckin’ Hit-Boy beat…

Wonderful, beautiful poetry… I strongly urge Stereogum to launch another spin-off site (a-la Videogum) for this inane ghetto trite. You may consider this for metal (and loud stuff in general, like on AV Club) too, it’s a niche genre as well. Thanks in advance.

I’m also not going to Coachella this year, so don’t even bother asking at the 11th hour when I’m about to head the door, luggage in hand, scott@stereogum.com.
