This is funny, and Rufus’s performance is surely inspired, but Accordion Troubadour Jason Webley has been doing something similar in concert for years, and does it as one big medley… http://youtu.be/xbZKPgvsXj0

I love the way people thumbs down something just because they don’t agree with it.

I’ve got an M.I.A. super bowl gesture for all’y'all.

All I said was the song’s not good. And it’s not. I’m a big Kanye fan. But there’s no hook to that song and it bores me. I hope they do another album together and maybe work on it a little longer than rush it in between three other projects.

I think he really phoned that fight in. The fix was on.

This song is just not good. No matter how many times people tell me it is, it just doesn’t change that it isn’t. The filming/editing is great. The song still bland.

If an Avril Lavigne album get released in Canada, does it make a noise?

In other news, where’s The Weeknd? By far the best music released moose-side of the border last year.

Yes, but isn’t that a better use of the internet’s time than finding new ways to ‘expose’ Lana Del Rey’s inauthenticity?

I, for one, find it to be a good day when one gets to remember that Ice Cube used to be a rapper.

ICEHOUSE was an Australian band actually originally called FLOWERS — their first 3 albums came out under the name Flowers, the third of which, in 1980, was the album ICEHOUSE, which broke them (in Australia). In 1981 they had to change their name due to some Scottish band named The Flowers, and they chose to rename themselves Icehouse. So in this case the band, 4 years in the making, named themselves after what they thought best represented their music. Tell me, what could they do, Electric Blue?

Can somebody please explain to me what the fuck MIXTAPE now means to this hipster generation. To me, a mixtape was a a collection of songs I put together (on an actual cassette) and gave to my girlfriend after she dumped my ass… in hopes of getting make up sex. Isn’ t part of the whole point of the word mixtape that it be a MIX? So how are all these artists making mixtapes? Can people stop appropriating words and giving them new stupid meanings, especially when the words feature prominently in my formative years? Can we just start calling this what it is, Artists giving away a bunch of free music that can’t get anyone to Pay Them For Yet? No judgement whatsoever on the quality, I loved both albums The Weeknd gave away this year, but still have no clue as to why they were called mixtapes?

I was there and can say that there were only 2 acts I saw all weekend that were more than 5 minutes late: Lykee Li, who was 20 minutes late but sang her ass off, put on a great show and went ten minutes over (net loss 10 minutes), and Danzig who was such an embarrassment even when he was on stage that FFFFest should have pulled his plug a lot earlier and asked for their money back. If fuckin’ Slayer can show up on time and play an epic set, than someone needs the kitty litter down Danzig’s throat until he coughs up his paycheck.

Best sets of the weekend: Slayer, Austra, Russian Circles, Boris, Architecture in Helsinki, Mates of State, Lykee Li, and Ocote Soul Sounds.

Also heard Public Enemy was great but I was stuck waited on Danzig.
