Internet Commenter

Now a couple of weeks into January, we are finally getting some details on our most anticipated albums of 2014: Damon Albarn, Beck, Cloud Nothings, Lily Allen, Morrissey, Schoolboy Q, Sharon Van Etten, Woods Of Desolation, , Real Estate, Twilight, Lykke Li, Rick Ross, Alcest, Liars, Neneh Cherry, Against Me!, Mac DeMarco, AND MANY MORE. Also this week we saw the lineup to Governors Ball ‘14, one of the 40 festivals OutKast are headlining this year. We ranked the 10 best Killers songs and published a massive oral history of Pavement’s Crooked Rain, Crooked Rain. Kanye went to the chiropractor and Win Butler made it known he is a fucking rock star. Your best and worst responses to all these things are below.

THIS WEEK’S 10 HIGHEST RATED COMMENTS

#10

John Mordecai | Jan 14th Score:22

yeah, but there are a ton of “indie rockers” that really are massive dorks and it’s getting boring and too polite anyway. Arcade Fire, by comparison, are not boring (but you know, maybe a little dorky). I’m glad he responded that way.

i think there need to be more good rock stars out there that will make a big sound and say big nasty things. and clearly he knew the guy who wrote it, so there was a little bit of a personal dig in there too.

It’s not like he responds to every negative review or he called up Rolling Stone to vent about a review. A journalist asked him a question, and he answered it with a tasty soundbite.

Josh Robertson | Jan 14th Score:22

He is responding to a question from Rollingstone during an interview. It isn’t like he went out and seemed out an interviewer to talk about this bad review.

“I’m a super-dork because I play with David Bowie. Bruce Springsteen wants to cover my songs because I’m such a dork. I’m not a dork,” he says earnestly. “I’m a fucking rock star.”

God, he sounds like Corgan.
At least Corgan can play guitar.

I don’t know I think coming out and owning being a rock star is great. We appreciate it when rappers (“I Am A God”) and pop stars (“Roar”) do self-aggrandizement in a fun/creative way, I don’t know why Arcade Fire should be any different.

I got ham but I’m not a hamster.
I got toast but I’m not a toaster.
I got hips but I’m not a hipster.

John Mordecai | Jan 14th Score:41

let’s remember how interviews work though: sometimes someone asks you a question, and you answer it. Doesn’t mean any more than that.

#1 catwithglasses | Jan 14th Score:44

Earnestly referring to yourself as a fucking rock star is just douchey. But calling someone a dork with a boring sex life in a music review is also a dick move.

Spell check goes a long way. Alternatively just don’t bother trying to ’report’ on this kind of ’news’.

  1. Another week, another placement in the Worst Comments not worth mentioning.

  2. Don Rickles

  3. Cory D Howell fails to #breakfree from the lowest rated comment section.

  4. Cory D Howell fails to #breakfree from the lowest rated comment section.

  5. This now seems appropriate:

  6. I know this is Video talk, and not Stereo, but I feel like an outsider over at that gum: From the nominations, who would you give the Oscars to?

    For me:
    Best Picture: Her
    Actor: Matthew McConaughey
    Actress: Cate Blanchett
    Supporting Actor: Barkhad Abdi
    Supporting Actress: Lupita Nyong’o
    Director: David O. Russell
    Doc: The Act of Killing

  7. cool, i got honorable mention!

    • I think Editor’s Choice is a real honor. Top rated is comment is like commercial success; Editor’s Choice is like critical praise.
