"but those albums definitely helped a lot of other kids get through college." i was thinking: same with patrick pichette (google CFO), too. both looking to embrace the family life. and google is currently getting me through the undergrad years. so much coincidence, i was thinking. and then i realized. it's March 11th. 3/11. they must actually be the same person! #311truthnow

February 17, 2015 on Kanye West Will Record With Taylor Swift, Says She Supported His Grammy Stage Crash
the film analogy is lacking. i could just as easily conflate Beck, the near single-handed creator of his album, with a YouTube vlogger who performs, edits, uploads etc his witticisms and ramblings all on his own. sure, it takes a large crew to produce a worthy film, but in music, "singers" who rely on the output of producers and writers are leaning on a massive crutch (or worse, they're puppets). the difference between a Beyonce-type artist and a Beck-type artist is simple, really. Beyonce's album is the sum of her forty-odd producers' and writers' ideas. on the flip side, forty-odd Becks on one album would be what referred to as a "compilation."

"cannibalistic flesh-eating bloodlust.” that's quite the Icelandic Viking bedtime story you've been reading, Moz.

i have a nu-metal past, simply because it was a dominant "alternative" rock force in my preteen and early teenage years. as a budding musician, i was very concerned with the instrumentation and musicianship of the genre; nothing beats P.O.D.'s Truby-era guitar work, for example. overall, the genre was lackluster and corporate-driven, and miserable frontmen like Durst, with their miserable lyricism drove me away from many of the genre's mainstays. but the more experimental guitar work Wes exhibited on some songs kept me interested, especially on "Cambodia." hats off to Wes for somehow still influencing my taste from the context of his incredibly lousy and laughable band :D great interview, too!

Stereogum wants you to know that Spencer Elden wants you to know that he was the baby on the cover of Nevermind. Like, really really badly.

i'm more concerned with whether there'll be more "colored" vinyl, seeing as the clear wax sold out in like 2 hours… thoughts?

putting the new DIIV record (granted they can get past all the bad vibes) ahead of the new Wild Nothing record? like, i figure this is an arbitrary list, but that's pretty sad! Wild Nothing is leagues ahead of anything DIIV's ever done.
