Ryan Adams wins the award for "most respectable coverer" from me. If I see he covered a song, I know that at the very least, it will be solid.

Reminds me of an amazing moment that is especially bittersweet at this time. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=y6uHR90Sq6k

Story time: A couple Halloweens ago, some we got together with some friends to carve pumpkins or whatever. The group includes this guy, his ex-girlfriend, and his new girlfriend. We're all good friends with each other, but it was definitely still awkward between the exes, and it was kind of an unspoken assumption that the ex-girlfriend thought the new girlfriend was pretty boring. Anyway, the ex-girlfriend decides to carve a choice Arrested Development quote into her pumpkin, without realizing any possible implications until we lined all the pumpkins up outside in the dark night, lit them up, and saw a pumpkin with a huge glaring "HER?" Her subconscious was obviously working overtime and it was incredibly awkward in the immediate aftermath.

Are they touring right now? I'm sad that I got into that album after they had already passed through the Bay Area last year.

Mine was about as cliche as it gets: "Let's Stay Together." But man, it's so good.

Along the same vein, I completely forgot until yesterday that the Flaming Lips put out an album this year. Be real, how many of you forgot that album even existed? It's not bad either.

I'm only really confident in my top 3, and the rest has more solidifying to do. 1. Hurray for the Riff Raff 2. Kendrick Lamar 3. The xx But also, I checked out that new Fleet Foxes. And guys, it's good.

Here's my obligatory comment on any Stereogum post related to my current city of residence and/or my alma mater. 1. Go Bears 2. I almost minored in Statistics at Berkeley until I realized that, of course, every class was graded on a curve and I would be a perpetual C student with the geniuses there, so I decided on a Public Policy minor instead. 3. Watching DJ Khaled's Cadillac roll up to campus is so ridiculous, haha.

I know that comment genre well after looking at a series of old Rolling Stones YouTube clips. Literally every comment is in a similar vein.

My favorite memory of seeing Spoon is in 2008 when they covered "Rocks Off" by the Stones. It was amazing. Their live show is so great.

I was expecting to like the new National single. I was not expecting to like it THIS much. It's excellent -- top 10 song of the year contender.

For me, the quality of their mint is superb, and any time chips are replaced with cookies, that makes it even better. My love for Ben & Jerry's is only matched by that of Haagen-Dazs. I do like their coffee ice cream a lot, but my personal favorite of theirs is Caramel Cone. Just finished off a pint last night.

Nothing on this planet tastes better to me than Ben & Jerry's Mint Chocolate Cookie ice cream. It takes all the restraint I can possibly muster to not down the whole pint in one sitting.

Ugh I didn't want to read you saying the Halsey song is good. Last year I decided she was terrible and didn't want to hear anything else by her. Guess I'll have to see for myself.
