Comments from chris deville

bloc, you’ll appreciate this: The only time I ever went to Louisville was to see Grandaddy and Super Furry Animals at Headliners Music Hall in 2003. A group of us drove there on rural backroads from Athens, Ohio. On the way there I sat in the backseat and listened to The Meadowlands for the first time on my portable CD player.

The Ouija board saying LAPD killed Biggie was actually funny and semi-provocative, which is a real rarity for the VMAs.

Wait, did the Apple Music commercial just suggest the Weeknd listens to Jason Isbell?

Hard to be mad about “Uptown Funk” winning, but have to wonder what would have happened if Kendrick agreed to show up.
