My ears are bleeding, but that’s alright because I love the way my eardrum has perforated due to a mix of trauma and change in air pressure.
This album is the tits. Mostly because it was the complete opposite of what I expected after All Hour Cymbals. I listened to O.N.E 72 times according to iTunes and that was just in the first week. I got sick of it, but because of this post, I started jamming to it again. THANKS STEREOGUM! =)
10. Eminem- Stan. HAH. What?
My cousin is taking a feminist theory class in college right now. (500) days came up as an example of the “masculine gaze”, which is what the whole movie was about. It was a chick flick for dudes. During the summer, I moved 400 miles away from my girlfriend. We had our problems with distance and when she came to visit me, she totally gave me the cold shoulder. I told my friends she “summer’d” me. Everyone immediately knew what I was referencing. Fucking bitch. I hate you Summer.
I just deleted Animal Collective, Grizzly Bear and Dirty Projectors off my iTunes list. Staying cool requires some sacrifices. Even ones that don’t necessarily make sense.
I feel that True Blood has fallen victim to the anti-Vampire trend brought on by Twilight. I was very hesitant on starting True Blood, but he only thing that got me going was that I was a big fan of Six Feet Under (for most of its seasons at least) and thought that it’d be interesting to see Alan Ball try to write genre. For the most part, he’s hit all the tenets of what makes genre work, and he’s updated the allegory a bit to fit our times. I thoroughly enjoy it. I say it rivals Buffy as “the” vampire show. Lastly, if this came out during Buffy times, I don’t think it would get as much slack as it is now (mostly because pretentious hipsters haven’t been born yet, or they were still really into Backstreet Boys).
Tell me who else you like.
No Breaking Bad or Battlestar. It’s a bad year for the Bs.
Noah Lennox looks like the Jim Parsons from Big Bang Theory.
Fleet Foxes and No Age are Lost fans. <3. And Andrew WK is the best (partially because of his list, but mostly because hehosts DESTROY BUILD DESTROY).
