Shut Up, Dude

HAPPY HALLOWEEKEND. We are here! Time to put on your best sexy Oneohtrix Point Never costume and storm your city’s centers for relaxation. If you’re partying at home, we made this mix of recently released, ghoulish tracks for you. Or you could really freak everyone the fuck out and just loop Lulu forever, RIGHT GUYS? (Ding dong.) The week is over, and it was pretty good! We gave shine to some new bands via our CMJ Class Superlatives, and renewed old affections with exceptional new tunes from Mazzy Star and Guided By Voices. Garbage said some stuff. So did Lana Del Rey. Titus Andronicus said goodbye to Amy Klein, we said hello to Oxford, MS, and Frances Bean is getting married. So.

You guys had a lot to say about all of that. Jump this way for this week’s highest and lowest rated comments, and your Editors’ Choices.

I would like to point out, (in a friendly manner!) about that time your alter-ego self-promoted for me, and the result was my highest website traffic in weeks.

To be honest, I’m not even that against self-promoting your band in a post. Especially when it’s relevant and you’re at least a little humble and self-aware about it (“hey, so sorry to do this, but we sort of sound like these guys,, maybe check out our bandcamp if you’re interested…”) its not a great way to promote but fine.

And promoting your blog when it’s solicited or when it’s at least semi-appropriate, like you’re having a dialogue with someone (and again, self-awareness is key)

But when you self-promote your band or blog where there is no relevance, and you offer no context, and it is unsolicited, that is the definition of spam. Honestly I have to say, I completely support banning those commenters. That Barry Gregory dude only spams your site, I don’t even know why he got past the 2nd try.

To be fair, I find straight faggotry much more malicious than gay faggotry.

“She has to figure out how to carry herself like a star if she’s actually going to be one.”

Um, no she doesn’t. The fact that she’s nervous actually makes me like her more.

THIS WEEK’S EDITOR’S CHOICE (AMRIT)

 
Comments (21)
  1. djfreshie is def the Michael Jordan of Stereogum comments

  2. this is bullshit man.

  3. It’s Halloween weekend!!!! It’s the most wonderful time of the year! What is everybody doing this weekend??? I’ll be dressed as a warlock/witch and riding the subway!1!!1

  4. Snubbed again.

  5. That fucking waffle gif has brought me way, way more enjoyment this past week than it should have

  6. Heaven is a place on Earth where you… get Amrit’s special pick for Shut Up, Dude

    • And the best way to really fuck it up would be to post a wankish celebratory comment using your Facebook account, not your Stereogum account. Hopefully this is polarising enough to generate the love/hate I need around here to finally get signed by Interscope.

    • WE DID IT BRO, WE’RE INTERNET FAMOUS NOW

      let’s go write a couple of meandering piano ballads, get some collagen lip injections, and really kick this thing into overdrive…

      i won’t be needing this college diploma anymore!

  7. My best friend’s mom makes $77 an hour on the computer.She has been out of job for 9 months but last month her check was $7487 just working on the computer for a few hours. Read about it here NuttyRichdotcom

  8. hey lester, lock it up!
