I can’t be the only one who lost complete faith in humanity after reading the above thread, am I?
Stupid. Grammar. Error.
Seriously, Hebronix = meandering, boring, sleepy, Yuck w/o Daniel = the Shins with occasional freakouts (Middle Sea), but this song is still okay. I mean…that first Yuck album is the best debut album of any indie band in the last 10 years (except for probs Vampy Weeks, #ezra #rastam #2otherguys #pretentioussongsaboutshitthatdoesntreallyhappentopeoplethatdontliveinnycbutisstillsomehowgoodanyway), and then Daniel leaves to go do Daniel things and it’s like…………….the album with Max doesn’t rock. It just doesn’t. It’s like you that new Trix cereal: it still tastes basically the same, but it’s a completely different shape and you’re just like…what. Happened.
Anyway, BRING ON THE DOWN VOTES, BABY
I can’t be the only one who’s completely distressed at a so-called “indie music blog” featuring a column dedicated to JENNIFER NETTLES, can I?!!!!!!
Are there hipsters in Brooklyn reading this right now going, “Hmmm…maybe now I need to put down my horn-rimmed glasses and chai latte with extra moose extract for longer eyelashes and write a think piece about the career of Jennifer Nettles so I can really wrap my head around THIS think piece about the career of Jennifer Nettles and maybe subsequently glean a new appreciation for the crafty songbird that is Jennifer Nettles.”
GIVE ME A BREAK. The blog system is becoming almost as evil as the record companies.
And because I hate fighting on the Internet, I read your whole spiel above my comment and you seem intelligent and you know what you’re talking about, you’re just a very poor judge of sarcasm and jokes. Like, come on. If anyone believes that shit I wrote about being a stay at home dad you’re obviously hitting your peace pipes a little hard. Or fucking thinks I’m dead serious about Latina hipster girls. Jesus. Who cares! But anyway, Bret Ellis is one of my very favorite authors, too. I’m glad we can agree on that. Hahahahaha
Dear Lobster Dog,
I understand your opinion. In fact, I completely agree with you on most of it. What you need to understand is that it is hard to stop writing something (dumb as it is) when a lot of people read it. And a lot of people read it. My name, however, is not on it. Yes, my first name is on some, and yes I posted these comments, but whatever. When I get a real job, I’ll delete it (or while applying for a real job). Thanks for your concern, though. Also, it’s important to note that I play up the dumb shit so more people will read it and get reactions, much like Crania Americana’s and yours.
In short, it’s all calculated.
If you think for a second that I’m ACTUALLY SITTING HERE thinking my bullshit about Latina hipster girls is gonna get me a woman or that IT’S TRUE, you should probably stop being a self-righteous anonymous prick on the Internet (I know, because I too am a self-righteous prick on the Internet) and just realize IT’S ALL A BIG STUPID JOKE. The bro lingo is intentional, the dumb opinions about women are intentional, it’s aaaaaaallllllllllllllllllllllll a big, stupid joke. It’s so stupid and primitive sometimes that I just do it for the ridiculousness of it and the fact that people read it and it seems to make them laugh for the most part keeps me going for whatever reason. I don’t care how it makes me look. It’s there for you to laugh at the ridiculousness of it, it’s not how I think and feel FOR REAL. CALCULATED…………you know? You really seem like the type of guy (woman? who knows, you’re anonymous, and it’s easy to be mean when you’re anonymous…the beauty of the Internet, right?) who reads Hipster Runoff and gets their undies completely in a bunch, sooooo just chill out, let it go, it’s a stupid fucking blog, you can give me shit about writing it all you want, I know how it looks and how I come off, it’s IDIOTIC. I mean, Christ, I wrote the word “boobs” about 74 times in the post, you think I’m SERIOUS……………..? Come on, now.
Also, your Bush joke in the Kate Bush thing was hysterical! I’m dead serious. You got some hilarious shit on here! I don’t even care that you’re hatin on my bullshit, if it’s genuinely funny I can get behind it, and you’re really funny!
I actually upvoted this, because this is awesome! I genuinely love your reaction!
Also, you used the term “self-aggrandize” which I’m a big fan of. Plus, you clearly just spent time reading some admittedly bullshit stuff that I wrote on the Internet and also took the time to copy/paste and all that, so I actually appreciate the effort! It’s way too easy to make people upset on the Internet, especially on music blogs, and even if you claim you’re not upset and I’m stupid and blah blah blah, you put some time in on that answer, plus you read some other ones, so I upvoted you cuz this shit genuinely made me laugh.
Also, the “our hero” thing…HAHAHAHA I love it.
