I post too much. I'm corny. I'm also harmless and wouldn't hurt a fly. If you ever come to this site you know all the stuff I love. And the new Wrens album really is coming out. And I'm gonna absolutely lose my shit when that momentous moment happens.

Comments from blochead

Knew I was forgetting somebody huge!!!! But it really does bring into sharp focus how slept on Los campesino are, right? You don’t hear people talking about the best indie bands on earth and saying “I love all the big boys. You know , vampire weekend, the national, spoon, arcade fire. Los campesinos”

Arcade Fire – only 4 full lengths. The National – Ever so slightly under the average of Los Campesinos. Vampy Weeks – only 3 releases.

Can y’all think of somebody else with at least 5 full lengths that have a higher average?

Rock band…..I know Kanye is higher ;)

It was a damn fine record. But I genuinely don’t think they have anything that isn’t really great. I remember when they first came out ….I remember thinking they were a little different than everybody else. And they’ve really stayed the course on their own brand without becoming stale. And it’s worth noting these are their Pitchfork scores 8.0, 8.0, 8.3, 8.3, 8.4, 8.4. I’m not gonna research this but I don’t think a ROCK band with 5 or more releases has an overall average that high. Such a great great band. Can’t wait for another release.

Easy to do. Los Campies are one of the most slept on bands on earth.

Loving the way this mix is sorting out. It’s great to see everybody’s different personal style.

You guys know how much pleasure I derive from seeing my name in print on another site, right? It could’ve said “Blochead is the biggest piece of shit on Earth”….my personal filter reads that as “Blochead blochead blochead blochead blochead blochead”

I really need to explore this 4chan place. Maybe Silas or LeMon can show me around over there. I can’t help but imagine those two all but live over there.

As much as I do agree with and respect the comment “… other than how hateful and stupid the core Republican voter is?” it’s one of those kinda blanket statements that I tend to balk at. I am a conservative at heart and completely agree with the letter of your comment. But I fear there’s a connotation there that’s a bit more spiteful. ;)

September 4, 2015 on Billy Corgan Is A Fan Of Donald Trump “Fucking Up” American Politics

I can’t believe I am allowing myself to be sucked in here. But here I go…………..Regarding Cheap Suits last….Clinton and Obama did an amazing thing with the word “change”. Change is a neutral word. On a scale of a 1 to 10 with 1 being “something undesirable” and 10 being “something greatly desired” by definition the word change is a 5. It doesn’t connotate good or bad. It just means something different than that which was before. It could be argued that change is actually a slightly NEGATIVE word as for anything to change the thing that was in place before it must be augmented or wholly removed. And the thing that was in place had withstood attempts at change in the past and had won out as the standard. But I digress. For the sake of argument I will stick with the original premise that change is a neutral word. What Clinton and subsequently Obama were able to do is convince the American public that change, in and of itself, is a good thing. It was a brilliant strategy and it’s the single thing that I believe won Clinton the Presidency and paved the way for Obama. And not unlike Corgan, I’m not saying that is a good or a bad thing. I certainly hope Tom doesn’t take that statement and run with his own particular brand of logic he used about Corgan’s assertion.

Trump represents the exact same thing. This entire notion that he’s “in there mixing things up” is hogwash on it’s face. Whether we think the election process is fucked up or not somebody that enters into it and refuses to honor the process is a cad. Trump represents a new and a very scary America. He’s a man of tremendous ego and crassness that is unapologetic about his actions and his foibles. If the GOP is so thirsty that they will drink the sand that is Donald Trump it’s the single most telling sign that the GOP is nearing extinction.

I’m a sap (y’all know that)…..and I double know that the Beach House album is a couple weeks old now. But Jesus…….”Days Of Candy” is beyond beautiful. There’s something about it that says “goodbye” to me. If this is the last song BH ever make it’ll be the swan song I’ve wanted.

Ohhh……that Baroness song is a beast that ate my face.

It does have an interesting “low brow meets high brow” vibe, right? It’s like a perfectly crafted poop joke.

As an old dude I understand what Keith is trying to say. The thing is this………I know why he’s dismissive of metal. I work with a quite a few guys that have the same mindset of his generation. They like their rock to “kick ass” but they don’t like their rock to be “evil” or “heavy” Ask dudes that are 55-70 about Blue Oyster Cult. That’s the band that proves the theory. Most of them will tolerate BOC but didn’t listen to it back in the day because they had some evil shit associated with them. And the thing that’s hysterical is BOC is exactly what those guys like, musically. But the “touch of evil” in their image and in their music throws them out of the mix. Metal, by it’s very nature, is O U T for guys like Keith. And it’s pretty easy to forget that bands like The Rolling Stones AND critics looked down their noses at Black Sabbath as hack fucks. And something like Metallica, a combination of metal and punk, is so far beyond anything Keith can tolerate it’s almost comical to think about. And of course he hates rap. Rap eschews almost every musical notion that Keith holds as his touchstones. That’s not judging rap as good or bad. It’s just so foreign to somebody like him as to be seen as not music…..at all.

Look….when you have more recognizable riffs than any GUITARIST THAT HAS EVER LIVED then you rate judging Keith fucking Richards. Until then I strongly suggest you listen to Gimme Shelter and, as one journalist once said, respect motherfucking craft.
