I certainly buy his apology more than I do Gene Simmons. I also believe that Rollins is most of the time a better human being than Gene Simmons, so it makes sense.
Maybe I’m blinded by nostalgia, but I seriously have no idea how Losing My Religion is the WORST of that lot.
I have to say, it definitely speaks to the sort of person Weiland has been in the past that this story was so easy to believe in the first place.
I think Childish Gambino is basically the hip-hop version of Andy Kaufmann’s wrestling career. He enjoys it, and he realizes that calling out his rivals is part of the game, but his passion is comedy, so he doesn’t take any of it seriously.
I’m so conflicted on LDR. On one hand, if she is genuinely suffering from depression, I can tell you that imagining your own death is one way of coping. Knowing that there is at least one thing in the world you have control over when everything else feels out of your hands can be oddly comforting.
On the other hand, if this is just her fostering her persona, I gotta side with Frances Bean, and that romanticizing it is totally gross.
Somehow I don’t believe Terry coerces people who already have a following that they could run to. I believe he specifically preys on women who are trying to break into the industry, and thus have no choice but to turn to the court of public opinion, which often finds them guilty based on Richardson’s fame and success.
With all due respect, the reputation you have gained on this site is pretty much entirely of your own making. I usually just lurk and don’t up or downvote, and I can’t remember the last time I downvoted anything of yours. But every week, it seems like you feel it’s your responsibility to tear down any semblance of enthusiasm for the topic of the article you’re commenting on. Then you boost yourself up by making it sound like you’re above it all, and just too good for this site, its writers, and the bands it writes about.
It’s not even about bending over backwards to play nice. You don’t bend at all, and then get indignant when people think you’re a jerk.
Would you consider Pablo Honey Britpop? “Creep” still feels very grunge, but “Anyone Can Play Guitar” seems like it would fit in pretty well with Oasis’ catalog.
This reminds me. Next week we should do The 10 Best Powerman 5000 Songs.
