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

By Scott Lapatine / March 16, 2012 - 4:23 pm

Stereogum’s Range Life event at SXSW ended at 4:30AM this morning, so my head’s a bit stuck in a yogurt cup today. (Which reminds me, my favorite celebrity sighting in Austin so far has been Vermin Supreme, whose head is stuck in a boot.) We hope you’ve been enjoying our frequently updated SXSW photos/reviews slideshow — it’s intended to keep our SXSW coverage prominent without drowning the site in it. Thanks for bearing with us while we run around Austin; things will return to “normal” next week (Lana Del Rey on American Idol = normal.). And, before you ask, no Tom hasn’t seen Skrillex … yet.

THIS WEEK’S 10 HIGHEST RATED COMMENTS

#10 Pete Fontaine | Mar 12th Score:17

“Freak monkeys with mediocre tunes keeps you busy and focused by lightness” sounds like it could have been a lyric from OK Computer.

Well that’s All I Need. A Reminder that these Worrywort Creep Coke Babies will continue to Sulk as long as this band refuse to learn How to Disappear Completely. Someone needs to issue them a Gagging Order and tell them to just Go to Sleep already and stop Climbing up the Walls over one band’s music.

#6 djfreshié | Mar 12th Score:24

“A lot of the cooler electronica elements from Kid A were Autechre rip-offs. I dunno, they just seem pretty derivative. Lead singer has a good voice though. 5.5/10″ Pitchforko Baptist Church

#4 Dr. Feelgood | Mar 9th Score:36

#3 djfreshié | Mar 9th Score:37

You do not talk bring up the derivative-ness of Hunger Games, you do not brag about Radiohead tickets, you absolutely do not put bricks on Danzig’s lawn, you do not suggest Goblin is a timeless classic, you simply do not use the word pretentious unless you are applying it correctly, and absolutely you do not utter anything mindlessly positive NOR anything negative-and-misogynistic of the lady whose name rhymes with Banana Bell Bay. These are the rules. They are enforced only by thumbs.
