It's also about who their fans are. Bruce's fans tend to be older than AM's, and I think it's a fair guess that AM's fans are more progressive on trans issues. Fucking Chris Christie is a Bruce Springsteen fan, for god's sake. Him bailing on NC forces his fans to consider the issues at hand.

My Southern Baptist friend got me one of those Random House Buy 5 CDs for one low price thing, but for Christian rock. I got Jesus Freak, stuff by Newsboys, Audio Adrenaline, some Australian band called Delegation or something, and a fifth one that I can't even remember. Maybe I just got an Amy Grant CD for my mom.

I was a teenager at the time, and I remember being a little concerned that I wasn't attracted to any of them.

Not familiar with Carman, but I definitely remember DC Talk. I made the mistake of listening to Jesus Freak before any other Christian rock, which set the bar impossibly high.

Also, could he have chosen a WORSE name for his children's charity?

Props to posting the SNL skit. For some strange reason, the SNL quote that has stayed with me the longest is "do you think Chris Gaines smokes meat cigars?"

You guys are bold to talk about the President's band this way. And yes, I'm still enjoying that joke.

May 17, 2016 on Preview Okkervil River’s “Call Yourself Renee” From New Album Away
On one hand, I do think it's odd that there are people on Twitter who have been harrassing and throwing around racial and homophobic slurs at people for ages, and they still have accounts. On the other hand, she genuinely seems to be a terrible person. I just wish there was some consistency, and it wasn't just the most high profile assholes who were getting shut down.

Still haven't listened to it. I had every intention, but then the tracklist came out. True Love Waits? On my second Mother's Day without my mother? Yeah, this can wait.

Funnily enough, this hasn't really changed my previous opinion of 50 Cent.

You didn't miss much. Play is the only CD I have ever had to replace because I played it too much. My drive to college from home was almost exactly the same length as the album. I'd start Honey as I pulled out of the driveway, and My Weakness would end as I parked at my dorm.

Shit, man, I thought I was the only person uncool enough to follow his blog. I remember when he went to a hotel and was beat up by some Eminem fans. More than that, I remember seeing him in the gymnasium of a Charlotte technical college, not too long after 18 came out. My first rock show as a college student. Hard to believe that was fifteen years ago.

I was legit surprised Dizzee wasn't up here for "Fix Up, Look Sharp". I learned about it because of Q magazine, and the second I heard it, I was blown away by how different it was than anything I'd heard before.
