Ol’ Dirty Projector

#9  Zygmunt | Jan 24th Score:24

First they came for the No Age,
And I did not speak out, because I was not a No Age.

Then they came for the Joy Division,
But I did not speak out, because I was not a Joy Division.

Then they came for the Man Is The Bastard,
And I did not speak out, because I was not a Man Is The Bastard.

Then they came for me.
And there was nobody left to copyright my t-shirt.

#5  Ocelot Stomp | Jan 23rd Score:27

Oh my gosh, it’s my moment! Time to step up as Australian correspondent, I was there and this is what happened:

Facts: The two main stages are side-by-side and alternate. Soundgarden were playing and then as soon as they finished Kanye was supposed to start next door. What Chris was complaining about was Kanye’s soundcheck, which was bleeding over onto the Soundgarden stage loud enough for the band (and some of the crowd) to hear. That’s when and why he made the ‘retarded children’ call.

After they finished Kanye was supposed to start straight away but was 45 minutes late. It had rained heavily for a while just before, and it looked like they had to rearrange a bunch of the speakers on the stage. Kanye eventually showed up, apologised for being late, played way over time to make up for it, generally killed it.

Opinion: Having Kanye’s soundcheck mess with the Soundgarden show is pretty shitty, but calling another artist’s music ‘retarded children’ is also pretty shitty. He almost definitely didn’t mean it that way but it was still shitty. Also, kind of bizarre considering Chris did that godawful stuff with Timabaland but still apparently can’t understand Kanye West? Oh well. They are playing together at least twice more in Sydney and Melbourne so stay tuned you guys!

Steve Hawksworth | Jan 25th Score:-16

I know it’s all about opinions but I genuinely think it’s a brilliant album. To me, there’s really no filler – extraordinary on an album containing 15 songs! And lol at those who don’t think she’ll get to album 2; this is going to be a big seller no matter what anyone’s opinions of its quality.

You talking bout Radical??? That’s my fucking anthem bro. Get a life. haha. Have you been to an OF show? Just cause you’re on Lana Del Rey’s nuts doesn’t mean you can diss the most critically album in the past 10 years.

Timothy Green | Jan 23rd Score:-18

you’re both retarded.

he made an accurate assessment. and to remove the most popular (and negative) connotation with the word “retarded,” he added “held back” to clarify what he was saying. and he’s right, there is no other word for it. therefore, he isn’t struggling with vocabulary. if you didn’t follow him, then you too are retarded.
