Find Me On:
I’ve got ALOT of hippie drippy friends. That’s gonna happen when you live in very Northern California. I’m not talking SF here. I’m talking up near the Oregon border. And you are 100% correct. Many (I really wanna say “all” here but know I’ll catch shit if I do) of these genuinely sweet people are so utterly sincere that things like satire and fake cynicism are completely lost on them. I have to check myself all the time when I’m around them. Actual conversation from two weekends ago. The scene is a little get together and I have forgotten where I put my keys…..
“Fuck. I do this every single time I come over here. I put them someplace that I think is so clever then have a few beers and I can’t remember shit. Somebody shoot me in the face. I’m too dumb to live”
“You’re not dumb. Far from it. Beneath all your sacrcasm you are actually very sweet. I know I don’t want to shoot you in the face. Darla, do you want to shoot him in the face? Blochead, nobody here wants to see you shot in the face”
Then there’s me…half drunk listening to these three REALLY sincere and nice people debating the merits of shooting me in the face. Thank GOD the keys were behind the coffee pot. I was close to shooting myself in the face.
I’ve been into this guy for years. I think it’s kinda cool that a person who writes such thoughtful and insightful music loves to talk shit. It’s weird.
I know this might be a streeeeeetch…but it reminds me of the Dee Snyder of Twisted Sister testifying before the Senate (that might be wrong…..was it the House? Don’t remember.. …..and it’s not important) in the 80′s
You could tell they bit off a bit more than they could chew with Dee. He looks like easy fodder and I’m quite sure the religious right thought they could take a shot at this guy with no salvos coming back at them.
Based on his above comments I think this guy is a shrewd and intelligent SOB. Betcha they go back to their little hive and leave this guy alone.
I actually read that whole thing. And although I’m still a little confused about her piece I did enjoy it quite a bit.
LOL. ALL IN CAPS ON PURPOSE.
Goddamn!! Couldn’t have fucking said that shit any better myself.
Why is there ANY pause at all? When I’m at a show I’m PAYING the artist to entertain ME. On whatever terms (within the bounds of decency) I want. I can tell you with complete honesty if I was at that show I would’ve sat my ass down and shown Kanye that I truly think he’s “Number 1″.
As somebody further down this thread mentioned I don’t do what I’m told to do on GP at a show. We are not cattle and we are not a hive. I am a fully sentient person. And if I want to sit I will damn well sit.
This is the mentality that we allow Kanye to get away with. And it’s not just regular BS. It’s historical BS. I simply cannot remember any other artist that gets away with the social gaffes this asshole gets away with.
100% agree. I don’t like my music telling me what to do. I’m a grown man. I know when to wave my arms in the air like I just don’t care. I actually have to do a ton of self editing. Cuz if I actually did it as often as I feel that way I’d have no job, no friends. My arms would be flapping constantly.
Robin Thicke is not good. Drain circling in the worst way.
cuz they are.
Hugs ‘n’ kisses.
