What exactly did Debbie say that you take exception to? That women once were excluded from certain professions on the basis of gender? That equal rights enables women to feel free? Or that LDR should be grateful for the civic engagement of feminists who came before her? That really seems aggressive and irrational to you?
They are talking to each other as if they’re characters from the Wire. And then you look at their pictures and one has the fancy boy haircut with a cirque du soleil mask, and the other looks like he just slept through his communications class.
What is the point of being enigmatic if no one knows who the fuck you are in the first place? It’s like you take off the mask and everyone is like “OOOH It was THAT guy all along??”
It’s OK to have a dress code. It’s not OK to enforce the dress code.
Yeah, there is nudity in the picture, but you’d have to have sort of a weird point of view to think it’s sexual.
it would be more or less like the NME top 20 list, but instead of pulp, oasis, and arctic monkeys – we’d have animal collective, neutral milk hotel, and kanye west.
I agree with you, but different genres of music put different emphasis on “the album” as a delivery medium – and that could account for some (but certainly not all) of the imbalance. K Pop, for example, which is more single centric, might host a pretty poor representation of “great albums.” And a lot of great Afrobeat acts never recorded full LPs. When international music does become available to Western listeners, it’s often in the form of compilations (the kind that Sublime Frequencies puts out).
That this list features mostly Western popular music albums, might simply mean that the album is mainly a Western popular music concept. Although, it’s probably just a little bit of that – mixed with the sheer laziness/bias/ignorance of the NME editors.

…for some reason it is the “go to” album cover for the cover flow function on my iPod. i tried deleting it; it still shows up.
This is why trying to talk about things on the internet is the worst.
“So my friend pointed out something interesting the other day…”
“OBVIOUSLY, you fucking idiot. You didn’t know that? What an idiot.”
