I'm gonna shamelessly piggyback off your first comment, if you don't mind: If anyone reading this is relating a little too much for their liking, please do talk to someone about it. I know "talk to someone about it" is almost as bad as "it gets better", but they're repeated incessantly for a reason. Seriously, just text a friend "hey I'm feeling weird and I know I'm supposed to 'talk about it' but I don't know how to start a conversation like that". That's how I do it, at least. They'll be more than happy to help in any way they can. Open communication takes away some of its power. The prospect of an untimely death is far less romantic once it's outside of your own narrow scope of experience. People need people to ground them sometimes, and that is totally okay. (Also, don't be afraid of the hospital and therapists and meds. But that's like a couple steps down the line from this. I promise your life is worth whatever bills or awkward conversations or ruined semesters or lost jobs you'll face. Love you guys, be safe.)

May 18, 2017 on Chris Cornell’s Death Ruled Suicide By Hanging
You're getting downvoted for making an article about the sudden death of an icon about unpopular musical opinions, (and also kinda trashing the recently-deceased's whole career), but I don't think your comment is entirely without merit. It's a lot like the "video games cause violence" thing, which any video game enthusiast will flatly deny. But... going on virtual killing sprees does make me kind of uncomfortable. This is music nerd country though, so our touchy subject is "depressing music". I know from experience that listening to Julien Baker on repeat for hours while gasping for air and crying in bed wanting/not wanting to die is cathartic as hell, but there is a case to be made that maybe in those moments I could use a dash of U2. It just... doesn't fit though. Music helps me (and probably all of us) explore and experience our emotions more thoroughly than silence, and sometimes if you're down long enough, those "depressing" albums become more important friends and comforts than the real ones. This is gonna sound pathetic as fuck, but like my iPod is always there for me. So... you're not entirely wrong; I could probably stand to become a Harry Styles fan. Might do me some good? But... you are missing a whole lot of humanity and life and pain and beauty and nuance.

The instrumental is classic RAC, but Rivers is on some borderline-ICP Miracles shit in the first few lines. Then again I've never been a big Weezer fan so whateva

May 7, 2017 on Watch LCD Soundsystem Perform “Call The Police” & “American Dream” On SNL
Can we talk about those two LCD songs a little more? The slow rollout kinda prematurely killed the comment party. I find myself looping them, trying and failing to find my way in. I need there to be a moment, or a hook, or a lyric that just feels really right, and it seems like there isn’t one? Something to hold onto. But they’re just… nice. And… there. Also, the mixing/mastering is weird, it’s as if no amount of turning up the volume will make them not sound muffled. This goes for Call the Police especially. I’m hoping that’ll get cleared up on the album. And lastly, does anyone else think that Christmas Will Break Your Heart is better than both of these songs? It has that classic sad funny beauty of theirs that is present in their best songs. It’s also clean and clear and memorable and touching in a way that Call the Police and American Dream, to me, simply aren’t. I hope they grow on me, and I hope this isn’t the part of James Murphy’s painfully-self-aware constructed rock’n’roll narrative where the band stumbles before settling into a comfortable, Pearl Jam-esque cult following somewhat outside the limelight. What do you guys think? I would love to be wrong. :)

Anyone else here a hopeless Serengeti fanboy? He's a hero of mine. Following all this releases is like a beautiful cult film mixed with a treasure hunt. Go, jump in, it's worth the effort of navigation, I promise.

A purposely hard-to-retrace Fentanyl overdose, probably from a black market of some kind, looks a lot like one thing, to me at least. It's tough to talk about this stuff for fear of spreading dangerous information, but at the same time, I don't know if playing dumb is a good call either. To be honest, I don't know which is more heartbreaking: the thought that this was accidental, or the thought that it wasn't. Also, I'm really sorry if this comment is bringing up bad stuff for anyone. Important conversations are hard to get right. Just in case: 1-800-273-8255 is the USA national suicide hotline, and 1-866-488-7386 is the Trevor Project hotline specifically for LGBT youth. I have experience with the latter, and can attest to their greatness. If you're even considering calling, do it. You'll be thankful. Also, mods feel free to delete this comment if it's out-of-line, I'm not really sure how to handle stuff like this here. Thanks/sorry/love you guys and Prince, regardless.

That's really cool. I would love to hear more of her stuff in a less polished form, it feels so much more... human? Obviously never gonna happen, but still. Can't wait for the album.

For some perspective, this is coming from someone who owns the Rattle & Hum feature-length outtakes DVD that was included in the *last* Joshua Tree reissue, and things the footage of them in the store trying on cowboy boots is quality entertainment.

I'm the biggest U2 fan I've ever met and this is all unnecessary consumerist garbage. Also not even a great reimagining of one of my favorite songs. Those synth strings... "why god why", as the kids say these days.

Anyone else just forever flipping between A Crow Looked at Me and You're Not As _____ As You Think today? This amount of death-focus can't be good for me, but music is the last bastion that I will not compromise on. Therapist be damned! (also got into Xiu Xiu recently and fell madly in love with the Glow Pt 2. There might be something to that whole "you are what you eat" thing.....)

Thanks! To be honest, compared to the shit that necessitated the break, this is not really that scary anymore. At least, that's what I'm telling myself :) Also, I definitely remember you from the... LJG article? Maybe the Ed Droste Orlando one. Either way, you're basically my trans* Stereogum commenter partner in crime. Always worth a thumbs up or two.

I am so about this idea, I mean emotional availability is like a drug to me. Already sent her a message about how the transition is going, even though I thought Hopelessness was a bit much.
