It technically puts a limit on your total library, and puts that same limit on playlists because otherwise the playlist would be a workaround as you could add everything to a playlist rather than your library. Bogus, I know.

Another thing; I love the song but this has been bugging the English nerd in me: "A 1000 times" = "a one thousand times" or, even worse, "a a thousand times," does it not?

I'm curious about the sales numbers of online vinyl sellers - I get a good amount of my vinyl from Amazon because the prices are MUCH lower (often $10-15) and I wonder how those companies are doing fiscally.

Unrelated but since your comment ended in italics it appears the timestamp of your comment also went to italics and I have way too much time on my hands if I'm noticing stuff like this

Also I do think there's something to be said about decrying a movement that you haven't put the effort in to actually learn about. If you research BLM at all you'll see it's not "black people matter most" but "black people's lives aren't treated with the same level of respect and caution as that of others." It'd sort of be like saying you don't like Father John Misty because you don't like religious music, even though the "father" in FJM's name doesn't mean he's a preacher. If you're going to be for or against something I think you should at least make an attempt to understand what it's actually about.

That's definitely true, but there are also people that I've explained it to who "forget" the next time it comes up. I actually think the name is one of BLM's biggest downfalls, because it's so often misunderstood (whether intentional or not).

Wonder if the short film featuring four tracks from M3LL155X is the same as the one that premiered with the EP release.

I thought the "cock it and pull it" line from "Sugar, We're Goin' Down" was actually "stick it in pudding" when I was a kid.

It's terrifying if you look at the shot of her that doesn't move during the vocal portions - there's one consistent shot of her singing overlapping the strobe-like stuff and it's eerie to watch.

I think it's just because she chose a Swedish name as opposed to a more common American one. Like, she could've gone with "Jane Anderson" or whatever but instead she decided that it HAD to be Swedish.

Everyone's sophomore year jam if we're being honest. Freshman year being 311's "Amber" and junior year being "Outside" by Staind.

Back from seeing Brand New and Modest Mouse. Brand New opened the show and were great, didn't love it nearly as much as last time I saw them but to be fair that was a better venue (Boston Calling last time vs. Xfinity Center this time), I was two years younger and had more recently become a fan, and I was WAY closer to the stage and in a compact general admission atmosphere vs. high up in seating at an amphitheater. Modest Mouse sounded great, but I was really disappointed in their setlist. No Dramamine, no Paper Thin Walls, and literally nothing from The Lonesome Crowded West: Teeth Like God's Shoeshine, Lounge (Closing Time), Trailer Trash, Bankrupt on Selling, Cowboy Dan, Doin' the Cockroach - none of it! LCW is by far my favorite album of theirs and I was really bummed I didn't get to see any of my top 5 MM songs live. That said, Float On and Time Walks sounded great.

Seeing them tonight, for the second (but hopefully not last!) time. The first time I saw them (Boston Calling circa May 2014) is still my favorite concert experience ever. Lacey's one of the most emotionally-invested singers around, and it shows onstage. Modest Mouse playing with them is pretty much the greatest bonus too. As much as I'd love another dozen albums from these guys I do think one more album (and possibly one last tour) is kind of a fitting end. They seem to have been held together by a thread for about a decade now.
