No intro today, you guys. But I think Ed Droste sums up the week pretty well:

Let’s do this.

THIS WEEK’S 10 HIGHEST RATED COMMENTS

#10 saturnian | May 8th Score:25

ALL HAIL NEO TRON HE KNOWS YOU SHOULD NOT HAVE BOTHERED TYPING YOUR FACTUALLY INCORRECT OPINIONS THAT ARE NOT IN SUPPORT OF LANA DEL RAY MEANING YOU ARE A HATER AND SHOULD THEREFORE TAKE YOUR FINGER OUT OF YOUR ASS AND GO AND DIE

Some rich tea-bagger pseudo rocker lady wearing a headdress with the caption “appropriate culturation” is fucking gross. F her and her moronic execution-botching mother.

I don’t care how many contrarian, white whiney young men with zero life experience here think that flat-out mocking and disrespecting Native Americans is just more fodder for ‘pc vs un-pc’ debates, it’s not. It hurts real people who are already beyond marginalized and who’s culture is used as mascots for others’ entertainment. In short, yeah, it’s racist. Fallin is a racist. Wayne Coyne, it appears, wants to align himself with racists and teabaggers. OK, Wayne, go ahead. F you too. I’ll never send another $ your way for anything. He has the gall to call someone a ‘nazi’ for complaining about white privilege? What is with this ignorant old white dudes in rock who don’t have the slightest understanding of how power dynamics actually work?

Also I just hate when people become famous and use it as a reason to excuse their bullying, their temper explosions, and generally mistreating people because they know no one will call them on it. The world can use a few less people who are this morally weak.

Other gimmicks left out of the article:
– record can be used as Frisbee
– if placed on a table, record can be cool decorative place mat
– when played backwards, this album will reveal satanic messages as well as the whereabouts of Meg White
– hidden tracks are actually just Jack White farting whilst talking about vintage guitars

#6 BarnLife | May 2nd Score:28

Not knowing all the real behind the scenes stuff, I’d still side with Scurlock.

Seth Frazier | May 2nd Score:33

The Flaming Lips has become a capitalistic business venture masquerading as an art project with the secondary goal of masturbating wayne’s inflated ego. (the primary goal is making $$$)

#4 HartfordTheWhale | May 5th Score:34

Ugh. Does Danger Mouse have to put his knobby fingers on EVERYTHING? His production is so intrusive – this album might as well be called “The Danger Mouse Keys,” right people?……………to be clear, I haven’t actually listened to this album yet – I’m basically just making things up.

#3 crania americana | May 2nd Score:35

Kudos to Scurlock for standing up against this bullshit, and a hearty fuck you to the governor’s daughter and Wayne Coyne.

Rick Sandmann | May 2nd Score:45

Coming later this month: a new Flaming Lips concept EP based on this whole situation. For only $10,000, you can get a chocolate Native American headdress that includes a gummy arrowhead in which the USB drive is contained. Coyne will be personally selling these at all of the hot spots on the Trail of Tears. Features appearances by Ke$ha, Miley Cyrus, and the dog from Wayne’s Instagram picture.

#1 michael_ | May 2nd Score:50

Ke$ha, Miley, this Fallin chick — Does anyone else see a trend here with a 53-year-old Wayne Coyne trying to impress girls who are half his age or more with his hippie rock star antics? Maybe he should form a band with Thurston Moore and they can both have a mid-life crisis circle jerk together.

THIS WEEK’S 5 LOWEST RATED COMMENTS

#5 buhloone0697 | May 5th Score:-18

I’m sure the album will be great but the album covers almost make me not want to purchase it. Horrible choices.

Neo Tron | May 8th Score:-20

Tha Lana hater profile: failed (untalented) musician, ugly (especially the women haters), never listen to a Lana song (or they are listening in secret under the blanket while masturbating at a Lana picture), they swallowed all the BS written about her (sign of stupidity), cynics that are believing that cynicism is the highest manifestation form of intelligence (again a sign for stupidity), they believe that their prefered shity bands are the saviours of human artistry etc.

You are that type of a moron that thinks that he understood something. Don’t finger your ass here, go to sleep or better go and die

Neo Tron | May 8th Score:-21

You are an incoherent idiot. It’s not RAY, you sad clown, it’s REY. And now, go and find some domestic animal in the hood and fuck it. It will calm you down. Then, slit your throat

THIS WEEK’S EDITOR-IN-CHIEF’S CHOICE

dansolo | May 8th Score:1

Nice interview. Gira seems far more well-adjusted and down-to-earth than one might expect the guy behind Swans to be. Except the bit about Haiti being where we’re all headed. There’s the prophet of doom I know and love!
