If you were a pedophile whose specific kink was underage girls in nude leotards, and you were sort of conflicted about it, I guess you'd be uncomfortable, too.

April 2, 2015 on Sia – “Big Girls Cry” Video
The weird irony is that she's become the person that she was railing against in "212". That song was amazing, and showed the promise of an exciting new voice on the scene. Unfortunately, for me anyway, it proved to be a one-time occurrence.

I would love to see the response (especially by Fox News pundits) if "Reverence" was released today.

January 8, 2015 on Sia Apologizes For Pedophilia Overtones In Her New Video
Why on earth would she have to apologize? This was obvious for what it was: two different sides of Sia fighting for control. That's how I took it on first watch, and she confirms it. Why should artists have to apologize when their art is misinterpreted? The road we're going down is getting ridiculous.

" but Smith is right about at least one thing: Actual fans are never going to be bummed out that a favorite band is playing for too long." I disagree with this. Back in the mid/late 90's I went to see Guided By Voices at the Cat's Cradle. At the time, GBV were part of a holy indie-rock trinity for me (Pavement and Sebadoh were the other two.) This was the first time that I had seen them and I was psyched. The show was great and I thoroughly enjoyed it, but once the third encore began, I left. And I don't regret it.

I saw what you did there before you did it and hoped that you wouldn't do it.

Ha...it's ironic that he plays a Spiral Stairs song before introducing Malkmus.

I understand that you don't like him, but not many homophobes have two out members in their rap collective.

So geniuses have full reign to hit women? That's weird logic. I, personally, adore Lennon's music, and could care less about Surfer Blood. I just find it interesting where people, arbitrarily, draw their lines in the sand.

So if you're a genius, you should be able to have carte blanche? I don't think you meant it this way, but the subjective quality of someone's art shouldn't be the test of forgiveness? Personally, I don't Chris Brown's music because, in my opinion, it's awful. I also don't care for him personally, since after beating the piss out of Rihanna, he's shown no remorse, and has even been belligerent to anyone that's called him out on it.

Lennon was just used as a reference because most people adore him. I don't think my point is that flawed, unless you are the rare exception that supports art made be only "perfect" people. What about Polanski, Burroughs, Chaplin, Woody Allen, Sean Connery?...like you said the list goes on and on. I agree with you that Surfer Blood's music is half-decent indie rock, but what does that have to do with anything? If it was your favorite musician, filmmaker, artist, author, would it be ok then? I understand the outrage, but question how militant you are about the issue? Or do you decide whose art is good enough to overcome lapses in moral behavior arbitrarily?

January 29, 2013 on Surfer Blood – “Weird Shapes”
This whole argument about not liking someone's art, because of the person they are, is understandable, but ultimately seems arbitrary with most of you. Do you enjoy John Lennon's music? Roman Polanski's films? Sean Connery? William Burroughs' books? The list goes on and on. If you discounted the art of morally-reprehensible people, you'd be throwing away a lot of the stuff we consider great. The art shouldn't be judged against the artist, unless you're going to do it across the board.
