Is it ok to think that both SJW's are fascists who are afraid of free speech AND Billy's a friggin' crazy nutbar? Can we get a Venn diagram together for this?

Jesus...making fun of an autistic airport janitor? Really? What, he couldn't find any people with Down's syndrome? What a piece a trash that guy is.

If Billy is sporting the look of someone who takes "Alex Jones’ Super Male Vitality health supplements", then I'ma gonna go ahead and...uh...not.

Can anyone stand listening to these two gibbering morons talk? One's like a Canadian offspring of Neil Hamburger and Emo Philips born with fetal alcohol syndrome, the other is like a walking cliche who can't complete a sentence without spiraling into "y'knowwhuti'msayin". Honestly, I know I'm an "old man", but these people are terrible.

I can't wait for the Thought Police to tell the cismale hegemony which specific words to use when referring to "the uterus". We don't want anybody's delicate feelings in the scratch & dent aisle, now do we?

February 17, 2016 on Killer Mike Causes Campaign Controversy With “Uterus” Remark
Saw him on the "Smile" tour. It was clean, well-rehearsed, and sounded very good. Brian Wilson, though, was not looking good and probably didn't even know where he was...after the show he wandered down the wrong staircase off the stage into the audience and his handlers had to corral him back stage. It was sad, but if you want to see a living legend perform with a tight group of musicians who care about the music, see a show on this tour.

January 26, 2016 on Brian Wilson Announces 50th Anniversary Pet Sounds World Tour
"I just can't quite put my finger on why this bothers me so much." Because it's a blatant cash-in not four years after their absurdly-hyped final show(s) in NYC? After the ridiculous ticket nonsense, after the live stream money...they have waited *just* long enough before coming out of "retirement" to play the major festival circuit. Yes, musicians absolutely need to make a living. Some even deserve to make a ridiculously lavish living. But this "final show-retirement-reuniting" charade feels like it was all planned by some fund manager in how to maximize profit out of a fan base.

"Soup" rules. One of the most perfect albums from the 90's.

People traveled from as far as San Jose to LA and were bummed out, eh? Any time you travel long distances to see a band you take a risk. Especially when that band is Deerhunter...and double-mega-super-secret-especially when it's the beginning of a tour. Surely this isn't a surprise to anyone. When they are "on", Deerhunter is awesome. But even as a casual fan I know better than to hope too hard for a perfect performance. Last time I saw them they also forgot to soundcheck until...well...the start time. But it all worked out in a blurry, sloppy, organic, noisy way that led to a very fine set. Who cares? It's fun. It's exploration. Sometimes rock n roll can be a little messy. Deal.

Gee...a bunch of affluent white people living behind the Orange Curtain afraid of rap music and proudly ignorant about it! What's the next headline, fire is hot & water is wet?

Thank GOD that we won't have to worry about rock music being offensive. We want everything totally safe and unobjectionable and we want the appeal to be universal and completely accessible. No hurt feelings, mmmmkay? Heaven forbid someone somewhere should be uncomfortable with a band that plays to a whopping 800 people a night.

Bitching about the experience is in pretty poor taste since he crowdfunded the whole thing, but I guess poor taste is fine with the VMAs. I think it's cute that people still pay attention to them...they're about as relevant as the Teen Choice Awards. Really it's an opportunity for celebrities to show up and cause "buzz", so none of this crap is surprising. "Desert space prison" sounds about right for Kanye since he showed up with Baron Harkonnen. I know that the shoes that those two clowns wore probably cost more than I make in a year, but damn, they looked ridiculous. However, Forbes is right on the money about the money. Those drink prices...the outfits...the whole damned spectacle. It's no wonder there's a class war going on.

September 2, 2015 on Disgruntled VMA-Nominated Director Had A Shitty Time On His Crowdfunded Night Out
(Yes, I'm going to be THAT guy) Looking at his photo, covered head to toe in Everlasting Jobstopper tattoos, I'm SHOCKED to find out that his judgement may be lacking regarding the stars n' bars. Oh, and the spelling in his tantrum isn't a surprise, either. He's an all-around paragon of clear-headed reasoning. I've got plenty of family in the South. None of them gave a damn about the Confederate battle flag being taken down because they're not living in the 19th century.

In high school I was much more of a Metallica fan. I liked Maiden, but my metal heart was forged in the fires of "Puppets" and "Justice". The difference now is that when Maiden comes around I go out of my way to see them. When Metallica comes around I couldn't care less. Maiden has held up far better. Seeing them in concert is just too much fun.
