Shut Up, Dude: This Week’s Best And Worst Comments

By Scott Lapatine / November 18, 2011

It’s a few weeks into November and you know what that means. Almost time for year-end lists! Are you working on your year-end list? Will Rihanna top your year-end list? Is it a list of artists you don’t want us to cover? I’m making a list of my favorite things about Scott Weiland’s new Christmas video. I also made this list of the highest and lowest ratest lowest comments of the week. Let’s complain about it then post cat pictures.

THIS WEEK’S 10 HIGHEST RATED COMMENTS

#10  Scott | Nov 11th Score:13

But not as hard as on Videogum. :/

Axl Rose: “Yeah I wrote Welcome to the Jungle when I was traveling, and I had literally just set foot in Peru, and was taking a drive to the Amazon and my cabbie said “Welcome to the Jungle” and I was like, whoa that would make a great song, hey could you refill that bowl of candy beans?”

What if, we’ve all misjudged her, and Dave Grohl LITERALLY takes money off her table. That is pretty rude! I listen to a lot of right-wing talk radio, and apparently that’s the sort of things these homosexuals do when they’re not marrying horses, or injecting kids with drugs that turn them gay. I believe the umbrella term for this behaviour is “malicious gay faggotry”

I think it’s time to give up on her as an artist. I held out as long as I could but it’s now apparent we will never witness the true Rihanna in any of her music. But that doesn’t mean she puts out a bad product. The majority of the tracks off Talk That Talk are ridiculously good pop songs. I just wish she’d stick to the dance-y numbers and just abandon ballads which are hard to swallow when you know the singer is empty inside. She needs to take a page out of Britney’s playbook and just stick to your strengths and put an album of all dance cuts like Femme Fatale, which is severely underrated. And at this point Rihanna is basically just a Bajan Britney: a sex doll with great producers and voice that, while sparse, is just perfect to write a hook around.

Damn, you cracked our code. 12-year-olds love reading 1200-word think-pieces about emotive rap music.

THIS WEEK’S 5 LOWEST RATED COMMENTS

#5  cecilparks | Nov 15th Score:-7

I’m starting to think Stereogum targets 12 to 15 year olds.
Maybe I should just avoid AotW posts in general.

Stereogum is flooded with Lamestreamers and ‘cool dads’, Idk why I bother to come on here.. —-*Lamestreamers and ‘cool dads’ downvoted this comment*

#2  cecilparks | Nov 15th Score:-11

Maybe I overestimate the reading capacities of 12 year olds.
Maybe I also overestimate the tastes of indie-centric bloggers.

i don’t know which technical school c. love attended, but it is clear that she’s completed Who Took Money Off of Your Kid’s Table 101.
