I dunno. SUD has felt off for a few weeks. I’m not sure why but it just feels so right today.
Great job to everybody this week. And of course by “everybody” I mean me.

Man, if Martin Shkreli doesn’t release that full Wu-Tang album soon, he’s going to risk looking like an asshole.

Y’all, I decided to quit the other site completely. I haven’t been attending religiously lately anyway, but I’m not going to visit them at all anymore. It was that 20 Best “Rock” Albums that did me in. Absolute garbage. I get that rock isn’t the most popular genre at the moment, but at least pretend to respect it and don’t make favorable comparisons to Disney soundtracks on it. Plenty of us millennial males still care.

Alright I’m a brown dude that lives in Los Angeles. I work at least in the periphery of the entertainment industry, in that my day job has the word Entertainment in it (even if I mostly stare at databases all day) and I’m a local musician of no particular acclaim. Hollywood is blindingly white in a lot of ways. I grew up listening to rap music and watching Martin and I do feel some pride when I see guy like Bruno Mars who looks like me become a big pop star or see a multi-racial franchise like Fast & Furious become the biggest dumb movie franchise going.

On the other hand: why is this always our battle??? There’s a guy who ran on a basically openly white supremacist platform headed to the White House and we’re supposed to be outraged about the representation in La La Land? That a bunch of Hollywood types that don’t exactly hang out in Boyle Heights let alone some place like I dunno, Lynwood, don’t have brown or gay people in their movie (not that they should be the ones writing that story)? I’m all for more equal representation on screen and in media in general but at some point, I DO NOT CARE. EFF U, PAY ME.

Sorry if this was a bit ranty, I’m just tired of how discussion of POC representation constantly center on the media and movies, while actual power – things like “having positions in government”, “being able to buy a house” – are constantly getting eroded away.

Congrats to Annie for making the cover of Guitar World! Although that probably just means Avenged Sevenfold were on vacation.

I sat here for a full minute trying to formulate a hot take on this before I realized that I don’t have an opinion. This is literally the best feeling I’ve ever experienced and I was in the room when my daughter was born.

If only everyone had Rostam’s track record of never being involved in projects that tailor black music to very white audiences.

Is it possible to like HER, but NOT like most of her music, her guitar design or playing style, or much of anything she says in the press…?

Headline: Spotify Teases New Dirty Projectors Album Little Bubbles

Body: “and whatever Little Bubbles actually is — presumably a new album but possibly just a new single”

Rhetorical question: should a writer imply that a band teased a new album if there’s no hard evidence of that confirmed album?

Daydreaming is by far the weakest song on A Moon Shaped Pool.

Don’t like it? Don’t watch it. Complaining about something just makes it more popular. If people ignore it, it will LITERALLY go away (as if Trump isn’t enough of a lesson in this).

Twitter, BTW, should be off-limits to anyone who isn’t a comedian or a musician.
