He was reticent to name his favorite Beatles song, but I have a hunch it's "I Am the Walrus." Because he looks like a walrus, you see.

Throwing stuff into the crowd: punk. Having a tea kettle onstage: not punk. Throwing your tea kettle into the crowd: punk-ish? It's reckless enough, but still, a tea kettle?

At least we'll always have this ten hour loop of his verse from "I Miss You": https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=50ncnomRZO8&t=61

Method Man just thinks having to wait 88 years to hear an album sounds like torture, akin to if someone were to sew your asshole closed and keep feeding you, and feeding you, and feeding you.

Is that Yellowstone Falls? All I ask is that we ID that waterfall before we go any further, here.

"I've seen more spine in jellyfish" was such a stinging remark. You see, because of the jellyfish with the stinging and the what not.

What an ignorant comment. Everyone knows Skynyrd's masterwork is "Gimme Three Steps."

The way commenters on this site talk about Lana Del Rey has evolved in some confusing ways.

February 26, 2015 on Kim Gordon Expands Upon Lana Del Rey Diss: “She’s A Female Chris Isaak”
The arrangement also reminds me quite a bit of some of the stuff on the last A.C. Newman album. As a fan of both that album and Lost in the Dream, I don't think that's necessarily a bad thing. But as a fan of The Tallest Man on Earth, I'm kind of on the fence. I'm cautiously optimistic, but we'll see.

To be fair, Billy Crogan is a baby. I keep telling him his band is garbage and he keeps saying "waaahhh you're getting me confused with Billy Corgan again! I'm just an assistant manager at the Staples in Grand Rapids waaaahhh stop calling me waaaahhhhh!" What a baby.

Exactly! What does it say about our culture that two beloved celebrities would want to be seen eating a Cobb salad, the most cliche of the salads?

To be fair, my response to that Lana Del Rey quote was just falling to the floor in a fit of horrified laughter, so it's pretty impressive she was able to compose herself enough to write any analysis of something that stupid.

February 18, 2015 on Vanilla Ice Arrested For Stealing Furniture
I listened to this earlier today and highly enjoyed it. All of the Silver Jews related news is incredibly exciting, obviously. The Pavement stuff was interesting too, but I kind of appreciate Malkmus's refusal to do that again, though I wouldn't hate if they –– as Bob suggested –– just played a couple of shows a year. But if you're not going to make any new music it's just mildly lucrative wheel spinning, since the novelty of the reunion would wear off in time. Or –– and this is a worst case scenario, here –– you give the world your own "Indie Cindy." I just get the sense that Malkmus prefers doing whatever he wants in the Jicks over facing the inevitable barrage of scrutiny that a semi-permanent Pavement reunion would bring.

When he got the phone call, Young thought at first he'd been offered a free pizza. It was when he showed up for what turned out to be a photo shoot and noticed they'd only ordered meat lover's that he realized his mistake.
