Tyler doesn't rap about rape anymore because "women are throwing themselves at me now." Sooooo grown up.

Kendrick is insanely talented but he mimics the style of other rappers too often. Sometimes he sounds like Kanye (backseat freestyle), sometimes he sounds like Andre, sometimes he sounds like Ishmael Butler, sometimes Drake. I know this is sacrilege, but I think he has yet to really find his individual style and voice. It will come sooner rather than later, but if this song is an indication, he's still happy re-treading territory from other rappers.

OK, I'll be "that guy" and just say it: there is a really catchy Strokes song buried underneath all that noise.

Good song, but I hate the way this track is produced. Sounds like it was mixed for a car commercial.

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.

October 25, 2013 on NME’s Top 500 Albums Of All Time
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.

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."

If you're going to argue that the guitar is in decline, I think you need better case studies than Chvrches and Icona Pop.

September 19, 2013 on Future – “How It Was”
I'm sure it was only LONG after M.I.A. decided to perform at the superbowl half time show, collect a paycheck from the NFL, and unite their brand with hers, that she discovered "felonies committed by its stars, the bounties placed by coaches on opposing players, the homophobic and racist comments uttered by its players..." etc. A bigger hypocrite has never been born.

I get that, but I mean, are they really deserving of sympathy? Or, are these just two incredibly privileged people engaging in incredibly selfish behavior with no outward demonstration of remorse or contrition? I dunno, I like both of these people well enough, but I hate seeing someone waste their talent. Sky Ferreira doesn't even have an album out, for fuck's sake.

September 16, 2013 on Sky Ferreira & DIIV’s Zachary Cole Smith Arrested
Wow, I never thought about Sheryl Crow like that before. Next time I'm in the car, I'll put in her greatest hits CD and ruminate about the divide between mainstream and indie culture. I will realize that, truly, every day is a winding road. And this discovery will lead to further discoveries, such as my blossoming desire to engage in various fun activities, commonly referred to as just "fun". Perhaps I am not the only one? Perhaps I will make new friends and we will all engage in fun activities together, while listening to Sheryl Crow. I, for one, look forward to this day, and when it finally arrives, when I am engaging in fun activities like getting jerked off in the parking lot of a cheap motel listening to "Picture", Crow's seminal duet with Kid Rock, with my new friends who I am simultaneously jerking off in return, and we are all being jerked off together, I will cry out in orgasmic relief and whisper a silent prayer of thanks for both Tom Breihan and Claire Lobenfield, and the day I stumbled across this conversation. God bless you both.

I dunno, I think the Arcade Fire has started to become way too topical and zeigeist-y. Neon Bible to a smaller extent, then The Suburbs, and now Reflektor...sometimes I wish they'd just do an album that wasn't so thematically structured, and didn't try to encapsulate so ardently whatever Win finds "modern experience" to be. It all gets a little strained after awhile, and feels less like someone is relating their experience to me, which just so happens to be "modern", but that they are instead desperately straining to condense everything that is "modern" into a polemic. It's like slogging through a dense essay instead of just reading a good story - the latter of which is what Funeral felt like.

I'm sorry, I thought your original post was criticizing musicians for "using movie plots for inspiration" as opposed to "actual human inspiration" (whatever that means). Now it seems like you are saying that motion picture soundtracks, in general, aren't really that good - which seems like an entirely different point, with which would I agree.
