We need more bands brave enough to make shitty music, we don't get enough of those.

This is a really interesting point-- I think it might make people get even more of a mixtape vibe out of it though.

February 14, 2016 on Stream Kanye West’s The Life Of Pablo … Finally!
He did this same thing at sasquatch and for me it was the most patronizing concert I've ever been to. I could tell he was just coming up with things to say that would keep him from really performing. As someone that looks up to him as somewhat of an idol I was honestly beyond disappointed. I realize he's doing the festival circuit, but I hope he realizes that not everyone is fooled by his performance... I mean maad city four times cmon!

My brother stabbed me with a knife last week when we were fighting over who could use the knife first for our PB&J sandwiches. He says it was accident, but after reading all these comments...

Can we please talk about how fucking perfect "What Deaner Was Talking About" is. Those two minutes are what got me hooked on Ween. Also the decision to have Freedom of '76 followed by Spinal Meninigitis, was something my 13 year old mind could never really understand, it made me want more.

I remember the specific moment I heard All these things that I've done. My older brother was playing it in the garage while working on his physics bridge project when I was in sixth grade and I felt this weird sensation. I felt as if I NEEDED to hear more of it and didn't know why. I had heard music on the radio all te time and never felt any sort of deep reaction to it. I'm ambivalent about The Killers now, but they were without a doubt the first music I ever felt passionate about and that's something I can never forget.

I'm not a fan of Foster the People by any means, but seriously all of what your saying can basically be summed up with, "I don't think they're cool." Saying that a song they wrote is better than it deserves to be just shows how bias you are in approaching their music. Also, Portugal the Man are in no way a MGMT copycat and in fact have been releasing music from before MGMT was even a thing.

Agreed. I was also in the category of "hip hop" isn't real music, so glad I can appreciate varied music now.

I feel like Kanye is becoming the new Radiohead in that he can be expected to top almost every list, whether people like it or not.

December 6, 2013 on Childish Gambino (Feat. Chance The Rapper) – “The Worst Guys” Video
Saw this quote on youtube and made me totally rethink this video, which I originally thought of as awful: "This video presents some of the most stereotypical, if not corny American stereotypes. The desert. The galloping stallions. The beautiful woman. The soft porn. The lone ranger riding his motorcycle into the sunset. And it is all presented in such a simple and uninspiring way that it is almost a mockery of these things. The only thing not stereotypically American here, is the fact that the lone ranger is black. So why is Kanye doing this? Well it is pretty simple, he is taking White American culture, and he is replacing it with a black skin head. This is essentially an aggressive cultural takeover that the average person probably doesn't even realise is happening. Why else would he debut the video on the Ellen show? It is a white American talk show, with a white American demographic. This man is literally destroying white American stereotypes by making them revolve around him. The funniest part is, hardly anyone realises it. Oh and who is White America's favourite 'white' person? Jesus. I'm sure you all get where I'm going with this." Either Kanye's a fucking genius or just unbelievably cheesy...or both.

I feel that too much of this write up was centered on attacking the idea of Tyler The Creator. Like he's not fulfilling some sort of fantasy you have of him. I'm not a huge fan, but I find some of his work really interesting and don't really listen to him for lyrical insight. I think this was much better than Goblin and there are at least five songs which I will definitely be going back to, which as a previous person put it is all I'm really looking forward in an album like this.

Wow really? God everyone's so uptight, I actually thought Tom was really funny in this write up. Domo 23 sounds like another Rella, so it's not really my thing. Bimmer sounds really great though and I hope there's more of that kind of stuff on the album.
