...And Star Power is one my favourites of the year. It has like 7 great songs for Me, that's more than St-Vincent, which I really liked, or other favourites this year. I like it better than Ambassadors... I think, but less than Take the kids off Broadway. Haven't made a list yet, but I really liked Weezer, Morrissey, Mac Demarco, Gibbs and Madlib, D'Angelo, Todd Terje, Andy Stott, Julian Casablancas+Voidz, a lot of shit Young Thug released, Ariel Pink, Chromeo, Lykke Li, Lilly Allen, Future, SZA, Avey Tare's Slasher Flicks. (Favourite song: Makonnen, no question)

Come on, this is clearly a cinephilic movie massively influenced by french cinema, just like The Squid and the Whale. Homage.

Your article on Miley VS Sinead was pretty weird to Me. In my opinion, Sinead was way out of line slut-shaming Miley and being so patronizing. What She did was pretty offensive and She deserved to be put back in her place. I believe her behaviour here was anti-feminist, not Miley's. Plus, have you seen those vegetables pics? She's cray.

I have been thinking about this too. I feel that he would get more respect if he was rarer and just appeared for some good-to-awesome guest verses once in a while. It might be better to keep people wanting more rather than releasing albums with a lot of crappy songs. As a listenner I don't mind though, and I would be sad if I couldn't listen to We Made You, Crack A Bottle, No Love, Rap God, Love Game...

November 5, 2013 on Eminem: Rap Game Eric Clapton
I watched the whole thing and thought it was pretty enjoyable. It started with Arcade Fire performing "Afterlife" with a choreography from Greta Gerwig and a bunch a kids, pretty charming stuff. The performances were good, Eminem killed it, and the live music video thing gave some nice results with M.I.A. and Tyler and Earl. There were some pretty creative moments, OK GO did some live painting on Jason Schwartzman's face... The point was to celebrate the DIY quality of youtube videos, not the pomp of the Grammys and they succeeded at times. The show felt more like some walkabout theater where the audience wanders around and artists perform stuff on different stages. Negative points, it was kind of a mess, there were some embarassing skits, the sound was not good and Maclemore received an award.

Actually I agree with Sufjan here, I think Miley is awesome, She is this year's greatest pop star, She is getting the most attention right now, and #GetItRight is a very catchy song (Thank you Pharrell)

October 15, 2013 on Sufjan Stevens Writes Open Letter To Miley Cyrus: “You’ve Been LYING”
I don't know, but the first minutes look really good. The lighting is pretty, the poses are interesting, some good shots. I would call that art. The rest it pretty distasteful, with the projections of Justin's face over the girls' boobs...

"The reality is that most vegans/vegetarians have committed to their lifestyle and try to force it on others because they believe it is morally superior". I am not sure this is true. There are assholes everywhere, but it's more like the other way round. Based on my experience, I would say that meat eaters tend to have difficulties accepting that vegans chose to eat differently. Look at all the hate and mockery towards vegans in the comment section. About the health benefits of vegetarianism, it is not my experience. It's science. It has been proved. You are opposing science and research with a subjective point of view (based on the people near Austin, your father's patients and your grandparents). I don't believe we are SUPPOSED to eat meat. There is no god or nature masterplan or such thing. We are not slaves to a natural order. We can choose, that's what I like about being human. Steve Jobs cannot be used as an example here. He was a food psycho who didn't wash and would eat an apple week. And I am not exagerating, check his biography. Comparing Vegetarianism to scientology is dishonest. Scientology is a cult. Your contempt toward vegans is weird, maybe You ought to think about it. But maybe We should stop this debate at some point and just agree to disagree bro.

Michael, the body requires proteins, not meat. A lot of vegans also get their proteins needs fullfilled by other types of food. And the moral question is not the only reason for which some people choose not to eat meat. It is also better for the environment and for your health.Vegetarians tend to weigh less, have lower cholesterol, live longer, and have fewer serious diseases. So although meat is delicious and full of proteins, vegetarianism makes sense. About the nature-culture divide, you are kinda right, so maybe I should rephrase. Humans are not completely but partially seprated from nature, otherwise We wouldn't be discussing this here. So again, I don't think the nature thing justifies anything if We think about it.

You are right. But Morrissey doesn't live in a third world country, so the question needs not be asked

Well congrats on avoiding food associated with animal torture. But I don't think the nature thing morally justifies anything. Do we go around throwing our own fieces like monkeys because it's natural ? (silly example, I know). Is the internet something natural ? Murder is something natural, does it make it morally acceptable ? Mankind has moved on from nature, We are cultural beings. There's nothing natural about going to the store and buying some chicken for dinner. Everyone can decide whether they are okay with killing animals in order to eat them or not. Eating meet equals to selfishly enjoying our position on top of the food chain and our domination on nature. I believe people who refuse to eat meat can take dietary supplement to get all the needed vitamins and stuff. PS: I'm not trying to talk people into going vegan, I do eat meat.

First, do you really think the leader of the Smiths is jealous of a stupid american tv show? Seems pretty unlikely. Second, Kill Uncle (1991) Your Arsenal (1992) Vauxhall And I (1994) Southpaw Grammar (1995) Maladjusted (1997) You Are The Quarry (2004) Ringleader Of The Tormentors (2006) Years Of Refusal (2009)

I understand it's a joke, but this is a little stupid. Why do meat eaters have a problem with vegetarians ?

I couldn't care less that he beat his girlfriend, sure i don't approve it, but I really like Surfer Blood and I wouldn't stop listenning to songs I like because of something like that. And I think it is a little unfair to mention it in every news about them.
