Yeah! My family owns the celery farm on the other side of it from your house!
Dude, my family lives in Hamilton, and I think I know the gravel pit you’re talking about!
If i tallied the times I’ve played Michigan vs. Illinois, it’d probably be Illinois, no contest, but Michigan does feel so much more nostalgic and authentic. Like someone else mentioned, the song “Holland” means so immensely much to me, because it quite literally provided the soundtrack for taking a nap on the shore of Lake Michigan at the end of my RA year at college with the rest of my staff (“things will end before they start”). However Illinois compared in acclaim, landmark quality, or whatever, this album is still an absolute masterpiece.
Well, it just came out, so fret not. You’ve only missed it by about 2 weeks. I think it’s some of their best sonic composition.
Possibly the fact that you commented on it in a fairly cavalier, dickish way. Go ahead, be excited about Daft Punk. But going out of your way to say “This story doesn’t matter to me as much as other things” is pointless and serves only negative purposes.
OH NO PEOPLE WHO LIKE SIMILAR THINGS AGREED ON A FEW THINGS WE’RE ALL GONNA DIE
Am I the only one who thinks it’s curious that Mumford and Sons is getting all of these nomintations for a song that first appeared on an album in October of two-thousand-and-NINE?? I mean, I do love “The Cave” and the band, but that especially seems tardy.
I had a hard time believing at some points that I was listening to a new album – some points just sound so much like points on previous albums. That said, my rocking out was hardly hampered.
Lucky for you, there IS an Illinoise numero dos. The Avalanche :)
Just made the connection on the cover art, too. Interesting.
Boo to me. I just found it. Deceptively simple, that.
Is it possible to get the link to Videogum on Stereogum and vice-versa? I made healthy use of those links before.
Not exactly trickery, but a really cool concept that weirds out the brain. I like it a lot. Hot Chip does some good things with their videos.
Umm, Coldplay has 4 songs in the top 100, which tops the 6-way tie.
I’m proud of you for being so ahead of the curve. Will you teach me?
You say these selections are “predictable.” If they are so predictable, why do you seem so incredulous that they were chosen? “Oh my goodness, the masses picked exactly what you’d expect them to! I can’t believe it!” So the average stereogum user doesn’t share your exact taste in music. If you’ve spent time around here, you likely knew that already. NOBODY HAS THE EXACT SAME TASTE IN MUSIC AS YOU. If everybody did, you’d probably think that was lame, and shift your own tastes so you could continue bitching about how you can’t believe everyone picked the most predictable stuff out there.
It may be English, but my brain is trained to only hear sounds that resemble English yet aren’t when it hears jonsi’s voice. So I really cannot tell it’s English.
I am. Totally and completely.
I’m proud of you.
Sarcasm is more effective when you don’t misspell two-letter words.

Read sometime. It’s a fun thing to do.
I’m quite sure it was the best song of the night at the Milwaukee show, although there were many moments that challenged it. It was simply outstanding.
Detroit. I’ll take these odds.
