Find Me On:
Point(s) taken. As I said above I genuinely do see the truth in damn near everything you’ve said.
I can’t imagine them giving AOTY to Kozelek. There’s no money in that choice. He’s an older and accomplished artist. The 9+ review for Benji WAS their bone to him for his long and impressive career. They won’t throw anything else his way. Benji will be in their lower half of the top 10.
Pom Pom is a PERFECT choice for #1, deserving or not. I haven’t heard it yet so I can’t weigh in on the work. But P4K wins on some many levels with this being their #1. Pink is a pretty underground (by mainstream standards) artist and he checks several boxes that make his work being #1 “edgy”.
But don’t come crying to me when they give AOTY to Beyonce.
On some level I see your point. But ultimately I feel the doctor in question should’ve stayed at home. Because people ARE UNINFORMED about this tragic disease. And people are scared. And now they are more scared. And as a doctor it’s his duty to help people….not scare them. I didn’t say anything about making a public health decision. I made a comment about his personal choices.
And is the denigration of the US populace with your snarky comment above really necessary? Many Americans spend thousands of dollars and hours trying to help with a myriad of problems Africans are facing. A blanket “nobody gives a shit” comment seems snide and cheap.
I gotta admit I’ve never taken the time to notice the different writing styles of the reviewers over there. But you are 100% correct about that Stars review. [REDACTED] really does give a snarky and petty review. And not that it’s worth a mountain of shit but I really like the new Stars record. Then again I like pretty much EVERY Stars record so maybe my opinion is doubley poopy. But his review has an almost jealous vibe to it. Almost like he doesn’t get the what the band is doing and what they are about and so he’s just gonna slag ‘em.
I will read [REDACTED] reviews with a more jaundiced eye from this point on. Thanks
Completely agree that it’s front loaded. Kinda I Want To is *meh* and then it reall goes downhill from there. And although I really enjoy Head Like A Hole it’s the next 4 that DESTROY.
Down In It
Something I Can Never Have
Trent hasn’t laid down four tracks that insanely good since, imho. I was a 23 year old kid going through a divorce when this album came out and that kind of reserved rage was so new to the music scene. The anger in that “Terrible Lie!!!” vocal is devastating. As I mention above Broken is my favorite overall record because he abaondons the reserve of PHM and goes straight for the fucking jugular. Bookend albums if ever two existed.
“You think you’re having all the fun?
You know me
I hate EVERYONE”
I long ago stopped listening to this kind of music as a staple. When I want anger music now I go straight to the top shelf and listen to the most carniverous metal I can lay my hands on. But NIN will always resonate with this guy.
So glad I looked up your history and saw this post……
I don’t own Grinderman 2. Which is weird cuz I fucking love Grinderman #1. I’m really weird when it comes to Mr. Cave. I like his over the top fuck the world songs and his sappy lovesongs but am just “meh” with the stuff in the middle.
We are on the same page on this topic….as usual.
Don’t short change yourself. I think you are write about everything you typed above.
And to me you’ll always be that guy who admitted to liking a Taylor Swift song.
I’m not sure how I feel about making the top 10 with a comment that basically ridicules myself.
You love me. You really hate me. Ultimately I think I’m ok with that.
The doctor is question may or may not be in the danger zone of the disease’s incubation period. But he’s most def. in the dead center fucking heart of something very, very scary. And most people do not know all of the in’s and out’s of ebola. So if he had any exposure AT ALL he had a moral obligation as a doctor to not put himself in that very public situation. And causing what amounts to public panic. Whether or not he is in the contagious stage of the disease is immaterial. He has damaged the public at large by his actions. Inthedeadofknight is 100% correct.
People are now more terrified than they were before this incident. People are damaged by his actions.
Primum non nocere (first do no harm) has been broken. And that’s the first Goddamn thing he learned in medical school.
