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

August 13, 2016 on Shut Up, Dude: This Week’s Best And Worst Comments
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.

I hope so too, but sub out Castile's name for anyone else killed in this way over the past couple years and we've gotten the same results. More defensiveness and unwillingness to punish by the law enforcement apparatus, more outrage that eventually turns to numbness. And that's the scariest thing, the possibility that all this awareness and "woke"ness is doing is making it easier to perform the perfunctory outrage and then return to the tunnel vision we all live in. Sorry that reply got a lot longer than I thought it would

July 7, 2016 on Chance The Rapper Responds To Philandro Castile Killing: “Is There Any Situation Where Police Get Arrested?”
Oh this one got real weird after SB Nation posted the long form about Holtzclaw's mediocre college football career, which included zero interviews with any victims but plenty of friends and family chiming in on what a good guy he was. Even better was the author, who had covered Holtzclaw's career at EMU, engaging in some good old fashioned victim blaming.

Witty New York hijinks ensue when aging writer Oody Wallen (Timberlake) can't shake the advances of the beautiful and intelligent Olga, a law student moonlighting as a supermodel who falls for Wallen's nebbish charm.

Ed is a god too, but one of those minor gods from a polytheistic religion, like the god of Precious Moments figurines or something.

I think the most shocking thing here is the idea that famous people sleep with each other. That is just disturbing.

If you're clicking this article I feel like you already know the artist, but if by chance you've just heard of him thanks to the Inventions collab, please go listen to Talk Amongst The Trees. It's utterly gorgeous, "Everything to Come" and "We Say Goodbye to Ourselves" still make me weepy

What you wanna watch out for is when they offer to "keep feedin you, and feedin you, and feedin you, and feedin you", cuz there's going to be some creative sewing involved.

I hope so, it just seemed so incongruous with what the article is about. It seems like "this is why Trump is successful" is the new "thanks Obama", in that you can blame just about anything for it.
