Ol’ Dirty Projector

Posted in: Bon Jovi x Bon Iver = Bon Joviver
#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.

Maybe Chris forgot that he recorded that one album with Timbaland?

#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.

#3  rubberjohnny0829 | Jan 25th Score:-17

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.

  1. I mean, after reading the worst comments of the week this is the only think of:

  2. WOAH-HO-HO check out Michael Robenalt clinching the top three spots!

  3. Will someone explain to me Zygmunt’s t-shirt comment?

    Like who is “they” ? Did he really not speak out?

    The whole sentencing structure, like, “I am not A Joy Division” — I’m just really at a loss here guys. I feel like I’m missing out on the key ingredient to result in the lawl.

  4. I demand a recount. Rubberjohnny had 5 comments of -18 or lower.

  5. I dunno you guys. I’ve thought about it long and hard that’s what she said! and I think rubberjohnny has convinced me that Goblin is in fact the best album of the last decade.

    Now the onus is on everyone to prove him wrong I’d say. Until then. Goblin rules!

    • yea my anthem is Radical to bro . i speek in runon sentences free EARL have you even heard dodgy beatz . man that line when tyler’s like “kill people, burn shit, fuck skool im fuckin radical nigga im motherfuckin radical left right left right” is like totally my line because im a young black kid whose father abandoned me 2.

      and when he says “fuck cops im a fukin rokstar rebellion and defiance make my muthafuckin cock hard, fuck pigs, fuck guards, all sum fuckin retards,” thats something i totally live . fukin hipsters dont no shit about shit.

      [end scene]

  6. Also, while I’m here, credit to whoever came up with “Kriss Krosstofferson” because that was perfect and also, I would pay a lot of money to see/hear that.

  7. Yes it has been a fun week here at stereogum…

    • Hello stranger

      • Hello! And yes, It pains me that my commenting abilities have been relegated to post-office hours only. Looking forward to the days where I’m not confined by a firewall…

        • Did anybody else notice the disappearance of Michael_ conciding with the rise of Rubber “thedutchessofthomyorke” Johnny?

          • I take offense to these accusations. I even went as far to get in contact with Stereogum to see if there was a way to access there site other ways. Their mobile site currently isn’t functioning properly for comments and proxy sites are blocked from where I am during the day as well.

  8. can we give rubberjohnny an award? and then name the award after him so when people beat him at having the best comments we can give them the rubberjohnny best comments award?

  9. I’d like to thank all those who voted for me, I’d like to thank my Family, and most of all I’d like to thank Basedgod

  10. I’m sad that Rubber Johnny is an interesting, near cool user name, possessed by a “held back” user.

  11. Honestly, Goblin was the best album of the year. I bet if you listened to it enough, I could justify my position. Stereogum should let me write an entry for their “Double Take” series. How do I contact Brandon Stosuy? Thumbs up or thumbs down this into the best and worst

  12. What the heck is a Goblin? Is this some punk band?
