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

By Scott Lapatine / February 8, 2013

Superblizzard Nemo is upon us, and hopefully you are reading this from someplace warm and dry, ears wrapped in My Bloody Valentine’s tremendous return, m b v. That was our must-hear album for a busy week that brought news from Beyoncé, Vampire Weekend, and James Blake. We also ranked Sleater-Kinney’s discography, deconstructed the Mars Volta, listed Les Savy Fav’s 10 best songs, and defended Mumford & Sons, who may have a big Grammy night ahead of them. We’ll be watching Sunday night, and if you’ll be too, join us here for a Comment Party. But first, see who won this week’s Shut Up, Dude below.

I think that top three sweep is equal to winning Best Picture, Director, and Actor.

Enjoy life bro. Be like tyler. He gets hate all the time but he still loves his life. And guess what, I just upvoted your comments. What’s that? RJ’s a good guy? Why yes, Stereogum, old RubJohn is a good fuckin guy.

Here’s hoping that “Ya Hey” is a cover of “Hey Ya” in reverse.

THIS WEEK’S 5 LOWEST RATED COMMENTS

#5 Michael_ | Feb 2nd Score:-26

Thanks for having my back, Amrit, and taking the link down.

(See, while you were all bitching at me and being greedy, I took to Twitter and informed team ‘Gum of the travesty that was going on. Your welcome, Kevin Shields.)

#3 Michael_ | Feb 3rd Score:-30

And I swear to the God you don’t believe exists, I will now make your life on here a living fucking hell, kid. I will make you hate coming on here from now on, because you have royally peeved me off in a sincerest way to a level that even the petty comment bullies like Michael Hannah cannot even match. At least those people can be up front with their vitriol, but yours is the most fakest and manufactured form of all since you do nothing but try to save face and come out looking like a hero. It all makes me believe that your real life must suck worse than mine, your pathetic piece of shit.

#1 Michael_ | Feb 2nd Score:-46

Raptor Jesus Christ, it’s just a fucking album. You phrase every comment on here in such way to get the post upvotes all the time now, and — wow, I know how Michael Hanna feels now about people like that.

THIS WEEK’S EDITOR’S CHOICE (SCOTT)

drgonzo | 2:19pm Score:1

Ah, who doesn’t yearn for the days of mass poverty and national malaise. Those were most assuredly the days.

So in other news, I’ve been going through some really rough shit recently, including a nasty oral cancer scare. Had a bit of a breakdown last night, lots of crying and bargaining and listening to Nick Drake, that sort of thing. Went to the dentist, turns out I don’t have cancer (inflamed lymph material and a natural growth apparently), but I did have to have a wisdom tooth pulled. So now I’m in a shit ton of pain, waiting for the hydro to kick in, and I just wanted to say, thank you Stereogum for always being there to cheer me up. It means a lot to me. I know, cheesy. But I just wanted to get that off my chest.

Oh and of course, thank you Based God.

THIS WEEK’S EDITOR’S CHOICE (AMRIT)

vandertramps | Feb 4th Score:2

“But we’re also lucky that last night had arguably the best halftime show since Prince tore it down a few years ago”

thats funny because right after the halftime show was over my dad’s exact words were “that was the worst shit i’ve seen since prince!”
