Radio and television brought us together, they spoke to you and told you a unified narrative. Now the internet is tearing us apart, we can choose what narrative we want to have reinforced and ignore the others. I'm guilty of that too, Lemonade is undoubtedly the album of the year, yet I haven't heard a bit of it. 20 years ago and I wouldn't be able to escape it.

This wall of text is painfully ignorant of history and reeks of a persecution complex.

October 6, 2016 on Pink Floyd “Reunite” To Denounce Israel In Statement
Israel was founded by terrorism and sustained by Apartheid. Any argument against no matter how valid is dismissed as anti-semitism outright. And sickest of all, they think they're doing the Palestinians a favor. "Sure we deny the Palestinians a right to statehood and self-determination, but look how educated they are".

Working with kids, Kidz Bop is the bane of my existence. Which is why I secretly jam classic rock on my bus runs. They're going to get their Supertramp god dammit, and they are going to like it.

Gosh, and Twisted Sister's Live At Hammersmith was released 22 years ago today. Far from their greatest, but an overblown live denouement to one of the goofiest, most Dee Snider bands of the last century. Oh, how far we've come.

I saw Hold Steady at a Chili Cook Off two years ago sandwiched between Seether fans on one side and Panic! At The Disco fans on the other. And it was glorious. I think knowing only about 15 people in the audience gave a damn made them play even harder.

Plenty of artists take money from companies these days, it bugs me but I'm not outraged by it. Employing a company to make your overpriced clothing that pays below a living wage and refuses to allow workers to unionize while claiming to take a stand against oppression, that's some bullshit.

I really don't want to see Victor Wooten wanking on a bass, his bass wanking face looks a little too similar to what his other wanking face probably looks like.

For a band that has such a reputation for baroque lightness, the second half of "Lullabye" is still one of the heaviest indie rock songs I've ever heard. It's those drums, in another life Chris Bear could have been an amazing doom metal drummer.

Ah gotcha, like I said by the time Pallbearer was on I was having trouble hearing well, maybe they're referring to the EP, but I hope they meant a full album

Today my hearing continues to recover from getting absolutely sandblasted Thursday at Strange Matter thanks to Cough and Pallbearer. Opener Forest of Legend from were a pretty good overly Sleep indebted group out of VA Beach who could stand to either turn the bass down a notch or everything else up. As they took their stuff down after the set it revealed the wall of Sun amps Cough was bringing out and i almost regretted forgetting the ear plugs. Cough was crushingly loud, and for someone who's previous loudest band was Dinosaur Jr it was a revelation. At certain points the only thing I was capable of doing was making sure I kept on my feet,. Pallbearer wasn't quite as loud but super tight. They opened with "Worlds Apart" and closed with "Foreigner but more importantly I hope Michael is reading this because THE NEW ALBUM IS DONE. They played two new fantastic tracks, over my shot hearing I believe one was called "Fear and Fury", the other even better track was nameless but one of the most aggressive things they've ever put out. 5 hours of sleep later and I was helping set up a field day for the summer camp I work at and feeling run over by God's steam shovel in the best way possible

Maybe he's just saying that it was the one act. As in Hitler really is only accused of doing one thing, he just did it 11 million times.
