Sorry...this shit just chaps my ass. This doesn't even address the fact there are bigger conflicts impacting far more people in far worse ways than what is going on in Israel and the West Bank - and yet, we hear very little of those conflicts and far fewer artists writing missives imploring boycotts.

Israel isn't an apartheid state. That's just a ridiculous position. They are an occupying nation - occupying the West Bank and the Golan Heights for security reasons. When they pull back from these security positions - bad things happen to Israel (see the Gaza pullout and its aftermath). Anyone who spends 15 minutes trying to understand the history in the region over the past 50 years or so could easily understand the Israeli position vis a vis security. Is this the best outcome for the people living in these territories? Obviously not, but Israel isn't the only actor in this conflict. Why isn't there a Jordan, Egyptian, or Saudi Arabia boycott? And how is Israel supposed to solve this conflict? Who is negotiating? And what of the past failed negotiations? Who takes responsibility for Yasser Arafat walking away from the 2000 Camp David negotiations -when he was basically offered everything he wanted? Who takes responsibility for what happened in Gaza? Israel isn't the only country trying to suffocate Hamas.

Is it safe to assume the new album will be out within the next two weeks?

This isn't bad. I could do without the glossy over production, but the figure played by the piano is nice. Question - why do they need 3 months to release 4 more tracks?

Bieber pretends to be a hack. Maybe he's lazy...but he does have some skills as a musician. It would be interesting if he REALLY tried to not be a pop star and create something of significant worth...or at least made a significantly important pop album. /judgmental

Is this normal? Is this where we are going? Is there a line of connection from Beethoven to Wagner to Gershwin to Lennon to Bieber? What I mean to say - has it always been this way or are we becoming insanely more narcissistic? Is he actually saying anything? Summation - I will say the wrong things because I am undisciplined? Also - if he wrote that ahead of time - what would he have done if audience hadn't listened...and how does he know they actually understood him? Lastly - his grammar is terrible.

Radiohead should do this with their tops off. I'd like to see that.

NME lists Joe Meek, George Martin, and Quincy Jones as top three (with Nile Rodgers and Phil Spector rounding out the top 5). That is a pretty solid 5 although there are many who think Spector was more self promoter than genuine producing genius.

Shatner is an 80 something year old legend. Is Bach really threatening to kick an octogenarian's ass? What the fuck? How could anyone be on team Bach in this instance?

I think this is Eddie Money's fault.

Anyone know why he never released Majesty Snowbird? It is a stunner...it sounds like it could've been worked in to All Delighted People.

I have the "Songs to Cut Yourself too" mixtape somewhere. I think it includes Maxwell's Silver Hammer.

Also, I'd probably place Casimir Pulaski day first - but Come On! is just so epic. I can remember the first time I ever heard that song...thinking - this is our genius.

It feels strange to lump Sufjan with the Decemberists. No offense to the Decemberists - but that is like lumping the Rolling Stones with the Lemon Pipers.
