I don't like either of these people, but if you go to MWG's Wikipedia entry, it does seem like he has very legitimate reasons to be upset with Manson.

Thurston Moore is in a relationship with a woman; therefore, he has no beau. What he has is a belle.

I wish the new Weezer album was titled "Serviceable Performance."

Was that really a shot at Ellen? She's way more entertaining than anything you've written.

This reminds me of that Curb Your Enthusiasm episode where Larry David decides he's going to be a car salesman.

Tom, I'm younger than you and I've always hated dance music, so disliking it has nothing to do with being "old." Did you know that there have been whole musical eras where most people rejected dance music? It's true. However, I would say that suddenly embracing any and all pop music for the sake of seeming hip in your late thirties does seem "old." Albini's outspokenness and unwavering views on what makes for courageous, substantive art mean that he is a hero--end of story.

The difference between what Josh wrote and what you regularly write on this site is that his writing has some guts. It's about something real and ugly. It's saying the unpopular but true thing, something that Stereogum used to do many moons ago. But sure, keep spreading your materialistic pop propaganda (popraganda?); just know that not everyone is drinking the Kool-Aid.

Yes, could someone clarify? I was big into the first couple of albums when they came out, and I don't remember hearing anything bad about him back then.

How long before Tom catches the glaring typo that everyone else has already noticed?

Yes, and as we all know, that man is certifiable. That was probably the closest call she'll ever have.

This is all very nice, but we must ask ourselves what kind of ghostwriter would actually admit to being one. It's one of those jobs where your duties are right in the name.

With all the air pollution, you wouldn't think they'd be so tough on waste management, but kudos for a job well done.

Nevertheless, this is still the best song about Robin Williams, Richard Pryor, John Belushi, and Phillip Seymour Hoffman that any of us have ever heard.

No, he was actually murdered. Tom ended him with a Taylor Swift CD slash to the throat. Yes, it was Red.

This reminds me of something I once wrote to dear old Tom. If I could shake your hand, I would.

Yeah, may as well post a .gif that perfectly captures the attitude responsible for both bad music and bad writing...

Of course this site would find some way to justify putting the worst Kardashian on the cover of Rolling Stone. This is the logical endpoint for the poptimist ideology. Every time I start believing a Stereogum writer has a mind and voice of his/her own, that person starts writing like Tom Breihan...or maybe Tom only hires people who think the way he does.

I don't like Crosby that much, and I don't think he is a hero. That said, as much as I dislike Kanye West, I have seen and read enough Kanye interviews to know that he's not dumb. I happen to find crazy people fascinating; what can I say? However, he has said many, many dumb things that he honestly believes are true, and if those things were all you knew about the guy, it's easy to see how, if you are a rational person in full control of your faculties, you could think he's dumb. I was watching a documentary about Jim Jones, and the reason most of his followers drank the Kool-Aid had to do with the mass delusion that Jones really was as infallible as he claimed. Every time I hear someone defend Kanye West, I just hear a sad person who is drinking the Kool-Aid. At the heart of such a delusion is a desperate need to believe in something, anything, and there are about a million better people/ideas to believe in than a rich narcissist. I like being an American, and I feel fortunate to live here. At the same time, it bothers me that capitalism seems to nurture and reward egoism and materialism and that a lot of people my age and younger want to lionize someone who exemplifies those qualities.

Oh yes, Kanye is blameless when it comes to people's perception of him.
