This Week’s Best And Worst Comments

By Scott Lapatine / July 29, 2011 - 4:10 pm

What a week. We said goodbye to Amy Winehouse, paid tribute to Is This It, then said goodbye to Brandon (but you’re welcome to stick around, Opethheads (“100%CLEAN VOx OMG!!!!1!” -Opethheads)). The response to last week’s inaugural “Week’s Best/Worst Comments” was strong, so we’re gonna do it again right now. Based on your suggestions, we’ve also got three clever candidates for a column name. Check those out along with the highest and lowest ranked comments of the week below.

WHAT SHOULD WE CALL THIS COLUMN?
Sterethumb suggested by under glad
{Plus/Minus} suggested by raptor jesus
Shut Up, Dude suggested by James Jobes

Let us know which you like best and we’ll make it official next week.

#4 byers | Jul 23rd Score:16

“Like Kurt Cobain, Jim Morrison, Janis Joplin, and Jimi Hendrix, Winehouse was 27 years old.”

And that’s where the similarity ends.

I, too, struggle to care about more than one thing at once. Fuck off.

Good point! Please advise me on my relationship too…we went on our first date in October, but didn’t consummate the relationship until December. When should we celebrate? Also she’s a massive bitch. Please advise.

I was disappointed that Stereogum didn’t cover the leaked Watch the Throne album cover.
