I didn't mind it while I was listening to it, but i'm pretty sure if you asked me to try and hum it five minutes from now, I wouldn't be able to.

Got it. To be clear, I wasn't trying to point a finger here, just curious what Gum's experiences with Berru/ L or D were.

Did Stereogum ever work with Berru? Pitchfork noted in their story that Berru was an intern there in 2005 and that the publication worked with Life or Death regularly, which is no surprise considering the L or D represented.

If you buy a CD nowadays, does it come with a digital download card?

listen i love FJM just as much as the next guy, but every once in a while you want to tell the class clown to just shut the fuck up for one second and let us enjoy something without your snark. part of what makes the RA version great is that it's totally devoid of irony.

Funny that Apple pioneered the hardware that would make streaming viable (the iPhone/Smartphone) but are trailing far behind on a software level.

On a side note, I'd like to applaud Snapes for her tact--she didn't hide from the truth but didn't stoop to his level. I have a favorite phrase and I think it applies here: "Ain't No Mud on the High Road."

Since they couldn't just outright buy Spotify ( a la Beats, LaLa) they tried to sweep its legs out from under it. Sidenote: Remember LaLa guys? FWIW, I feel like their model created the fairest environment for both artists and fans. But Apple bought them so they could shut them down and launch Ping, which is a thing we all forgot about before it even started. Lala Wiki article: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lala_%28website%29

This makes my blood boil. Tennis should be getting paid for the use of their song. Sidenote: Nothing shameful about licensing your music! It's a revenue stream that works for a lot of great artists and often a necessary one considering the current difficulties of other revenue streams.
