I primarily associate "Feeling This" with Madden 2004. Which I associate with throwing my controller in disgust, because my buddy insisted on playing as the Falcons, and it was impossible to contain Michael Vick in that game.

People have a nostalgic fondness for a band they liked circa 2000, even when they might not really be interested if they encountered said music for the first time as adults. You can't really have a nostalgic fondness for something that you thought was rancid garbage, circa 2000.

Yeah, the old Rolling Stone would have never done anything exactly like that... http://www.gannett-cdn.com/-mm-/0c9109c71ea0524d9fe840f91fabd67bb94a26a9/r=537&c=0-0-534-712/local/-/media/USATODAY/test/2013/07/17/1374076265000-XXX-manson-1970-rolling-stone-1307171152_3_4.jpg

September 26, 2016 on Singaporean Startup Buys 49% Of Rolling Stone, Jann Wenner’s Son Reportedly Taking Over
Rolling Stone moved it's headquarters from San Francisco to New York in 1977. So, 1977 probably saw this coming. Hell, Creem was launched as a hipper alternative to RS back in 1969. But I don't know. A print magazine owned and operated by two trust fund kid who haven't done anything noteworthy other than having famous family names seem like exactly what the apparently-existing multitude of middle-brow consumers of cultural criticism are looking for.

September 23, 2016 on Shut Up, Dude: This Week’s Best And Worst Comments
I’ve posted the newest, #rebranded Gumocracy, playlist, reflecting last weekend’s poll, on Spotify. It’s titled “Gumocracy: Vampire Weekend and/or The Walkmen.” The easiest way to find it is to search Spotify for Gumocracy (hat-tip to dansolo for the title suggestion). I also changed the name of last week’s Nick Cave playlist if you’re looking for that. Here’s the vote totals for the top 10. It's dominated by Vampire Weekend songs, but it evens out as the playlist goes along. 1. “The Rat” - 55 points 2. “Hannah Hunt” - 48 3. “Step” - 27 4. “In the New Year” - 19 5. “Diplomat’s Son” - 18 5. “Giving Up the Gun” - 18 7. “Ya Hey” - 15 7. “Cape Cod Kwassa Kwassa” - 15 9. “Walcott” - 12 9. “Oxford Comma” - 12 With all due respect to Nick Cave, VW, and the Walkmen, initially this week, I wanted to do a topic that wasn’t so, for lack of a better term, “white dude.” But, between next week’s publication of his memoir, his comments on Donald Trump, and the plethora of terrible puns many of us made in the comment section of the article discussing that interview, I’ve decided that it’s a perfect opportunity to wrap our legs around these velvet rims and crank the “white dude” up to 11. So, for this week’s Gumocracy, what are your five favorite Bruce Springsteen songs? Here are mine: 1. “Candy’s Room” 2. “Born to Run” 3. “Racing in the Streets” 4. “I’m on Fire” 5. “Incident on 57th Street” Remember, it’s favorite, not best. Feel free to get subjective as you want. Thoughts?

For about the first season and a half, Friends was a perfectly decent 90s sitcom. It only became unbearable when Chandler and Ross switched characters, and/or Matt Perry stopped doing cocaine and began his slow transformation into Joe Scarborough. It was never nearly as good as News Radio though.

Specifically, a "Mansion on a Hill," which is weird, because isn't Nebraska flat? Sounds pretty fake to me. Not exactly a Brilliant Disguise.

Sorry, when you release your art to the public you are giving full license for a critic to say that it sucks, even to say that it really sucks. The only time critical harshness is possibly dubious is when a critic is reviewing the work of amateur on the same terms that he or she would the work of a professional, and that's not the case here. The only obligation a critic has is to his audience, and all that obligation involves is a requirement to speak the truth. This review is well-reasoned, interesting, and honest. It is representative of the pieces that keep most of coming back to this site. If you ask me, someone expecting a critic to watch how he writes about music because you don't like to read mean things is the only embarrassing thing on this page right now.

I bet you these guys are big Jared Leto fans. They were probably really inspired by his portrayal of the Joker. Zack Snyder is almost assuredly their favorite director.
