also, note how "Esau" was pissed that people were coming to the island to 'corrupt' it. He's protective, the smoke monster is a security system, etc etc maybe common sense, but hadn't really seen it noted here. It makes sense (well LOST sense) that he was Locke, Christian, and Yemi- all their bodies were on the island, but "Esau" was also Kate's horse? still bugging me: where is Walt going to come into all of this? What is Claire doing while "Esau"/Smokey is off doing other shit and not being Christian Shepherd? and yeah, poor Locke, man. he really got the shit end of the stick- moreso than anyone else I can think of on the show. Maybe Naomi for dying a trillion times? Nah, Locke got thrown out a window by his dad, paralyzed, dumped, found a purpose, got shot, lost his purpose, found his purpose again, got off the island and lost his purpose. God damn. Still, that last shot of "his" face in that fire. Some of the most affecting/chilling shit this show has been able to get at me with. Can Charlie and Eko come back yet? Please? Pretty please?

Catholicked seemed kind of indistinguishable to me, but I really dug those other two.

Yeah, I was pretty washed out on LOST, but this episode completely revitalized my faith in this season/series.

This, for me, is like the indie rock version of The Rock vs Stone Cold.

Yeah, I really enjoyed this as well. Take On Me is one of my favorite songs. This has inspired me to check out AC's new album.

I think Colin was back there, but I don't think there'd really be a purpose in Phil Selway playing. also, they had trombones do the coolest part of Colin's playing in 15 Step anyway. that was a really really exciting performance- Thom looked nuts, I loved it.

cocaine joke, guys? f'real? I really enjoy that new U2 track. also, that Justin/Al performance was really entertaining and well done. besides the flailing jokes from presenters, this looks like it might be a fun show.

I'm getting self-conscious about women artists seemingly almost always being compared to other female artists. Like, if Glass were a new Final Fantasy track, do you think people would be automatically saying Kate Bush/Bjork/My Brightest Diamond? I mean, obviously, I just did it but it just seems noteworthy to me at this point.

I don't understand the Will I Am hate. What has he done that's so bad. He just likes making feelgood music. Even outside of BEP, if you take a look at his producer credits, he's done a lot of great shit. Compton, off The Game's second album. American Boy. Hip-Hop is Dead. Common's I Want You. nah, I have no qualms with Will.I.Am. Is he Dylan? No, damn it. Dylan is Dylan. But Fergalicious is still a damn jam.

Jesus Scats All Balls Down Drunk and Hot Girls (pretty hard one there. lol, I said pretty hard) Homecumming 13inch Brother Flashing Dykes (I do not like using that word, but any Kanye fan knows that is probably pretty realistic, because he fucking loves it) oh, who am I kidding? Love Cockdown is an automatic win.

I didn't say they didn't influence the success- any kind of exposure can be good for a band. But I found out about Animal Collective through a friend, who sent me The Purple Bottle and I immediately fell in love and went out to buy Feels. I think it's disrespectful that someone would try to assume that some web site is the reason I like a band. I will say that a glowing Pitchfork review (or, Stereogum, or any number of publications) can influence me to check out a band, but it has nothing to do with how I actually perceive it once I'm listening to it. I still am bored to tears by The Field, The Mars Volta is still one of my favorite bands, etc., etc..

"AC fans are religious about their love for the band. It's truly a testament to Pitchfork's power and influence. " Stop. Extremely extremely patronizing.

Oh God, a Menomena song just came up on my friend's shuffle the other day and I was wondering when they'd be coming out with some new stuff. They are sooooo fuckingggg good.

If your best friend gets shot to death sitting in the same car as you by people who were most likely aiming for you, you're telling me you wouldn't take measures to protect yourself- or at least understand why someone would? That makes T.I. "a fucking idiot?" Are you kidding me? You can't be serious.
