Those are some wonderfully trippy visuals. On an unrelated note, "EllenTube" is a motherfucking laggy piece of shit.

hey now, don't be badmouthing Lanegan, who happened to be a very nice and courteous guy when I met him.

The sheer fact that an angry birds movie is being made suggests a massive waste of human potential on every conceivable front.

Speaking of 'shat', you should probably give William Shatner a chance to inevitably top it.

Well, admittedly it sounds better than post-90's Cranberries.

Going to great lengths there, Sky & random twitter creep, to make this discussion be about misogyny.

Not sure if this video has enough violence and macho posturing

Hardwick doesn't know a lot about music, but tries to fake it, in order to have famous musicians on the podcast, unlike Marc Maron who is knowledgeable about music and is honest about his blind spots. Maron also doesn't do that obnoxious forced exuberance that Hardwick does, which always makes Hardwick's interviews come across like starfucking. Also, Matt Mira whose presence admittedly make the interviews less strained never fails to bring up Dave Matthews Band multiple times per podcast, which is problematic in its own right.

Nerdist has become the Jimmy Kimmel Live of podcasts, a necessary but slightly ill-fitting and embarrassing step of your promotion cycle.

Under the Tide is the better song IMO, but they're both solid. I wish Doherty sang on more tracks.

I guess it varies culturally. Where I live we have both mandatory maternal and paternal leave when a child is born, and the words for feminism and gender neutrality are used so interchangeably that they could for practical purposes be considered synonyms. The concept of promoting feminism by advocating for special treatment or prohibitions that apply for one gender, particularly in a world where gender is becoming more and more understood in a non-binary manner, feels very problematic and, well, backwards to me.

Isn't enforcing what people should be allowed to opine on based on their gender an implicit endorsement of heteronormativity, i.e., what feminists are actively seeking to overthrow?

Please explain the rationale behind point 3, considering that both rape and rape allegations often end up completely ruining people's lives. Also if you could mention which empirical studies you are citing for point 4, that would be helpful. I mean, it makes sense from a commonsensical, probabilistic way, but your quantifying of it (with 'way way less') begs for some documentation.

People who are this full of themselves should be rounded up and launched into space, like the giant ball of garbage in Futurama.

It's remarkable how much authority on this particular legal case people feel entitled to lay claim to based on a few tweets and a picture of Kesha crying in court. The only people in this whole debacle that have conclusively proven themselves loathsome are the people willing to contribute to ruining the lives of presumed innocent people by playing armchair-Columbo.
