well done @derek erdman.
great clip, epic sweater. Where do I get that?
why isn’t beck aging? did he get bitten by pharell?
holy f*ck I’m old…. it seems like only yesterday I had my mom buy me a ‘loser.’ t-shirt from the local Kohls. Early Beck has held up incredibly well, his lo-fi acoustic and electronic experimentations literally laid the ground for the 1 million acts working today.
the verses sound like the futures so bright I gotta wear shades
Since when did pat stop playing the drums and rivers stop playing lead? I assume probably around the time I lost interest in them. Either way this is a pleasant song that is much better then the last song I remember from them, the on drugs songs that has the melody of the diarrhea song.
how can someone come onto a message board regarding the funnest song ever written and spew negativity.
I’m kevin hukill, I post em bold
dissin grantland, getting cold
I’ve been gummin’ for quite a while,
Doin’ what’s wrong and settin’ the style,
Give me a chance, I’ll troll you good,
Nobody messin’ in my bloghood.
I didnt come here lookin’ for trouble,
I just came to do the sterogum shuffle
yes! yes! yes!
wow you guys are giving me lots of credit for ideas that aren’t mine. Google can help, google the glass escalator.
And if you dont believe traditionally held female jobs exist, look at this data.
I know some nurses make good money, and I also know men that teach but it doesnt change the fact the majority are female and are paid considerably less. Are they paid less because they are menial jobs, because their is no demand for it or because the powers at be have traditionally paid these jobs less because they were traditionally female jobs?
But again GUYS, thanks for solving the problem.
nothing beats discussing gender equality on stereogum message boards but……. the biggest reason there is gender inequality is because a large portion of women still work in traditional female professions – nursing & teaching. We don’t pay these professions because as a large they aren’t respected either because of the profession or the gender of the person performing them. We live in country that doesn’t care about education or its health so inherently this inequality exists. Maybe if the millionaires in congress started respecting the work of the women that took taught them in school or the nurses that wiped their baby ass things would change, but unfortunately they only listen to multi-national corporations.
wow, lots of down votes, I guess no ones from chicago or knows wesley’s music. Half of his songs were “I went to the metro to see yaddy yadda.” The two bigger singles in the past year detail concert experiences similar to the late, great Wesley Willis. If you only know the dumb fratboy songs go ahead and downvote, if you know his hundreds of songs about going to or holding concerts, well ya know.
wait, the birthday party album isnt number 1?
Is mark turning into a thinking mans Wesley Willis?
paid a lot of money…..its a charity event, so I doubt that. Doesn’t half the band live in New Orleans? Seems more like a nice, charitable thing to do. Also though I have no idea, I bet the 8 foot tall Hamilton probably played basketball and probably likes basketball, but again its a guess.
vinyl’s so two thousand and late, I can’t wait to hear it on cassette. Wait its a new year, ummm ummm, can’t wait to hear it on mini-disc.
beautiful egooglizing but I’m kinda bummed the writer was only had a passive knowledge of the secret machines. But I guess considering we live in the ADD world/generation I wouldn’t suspect someone to remember a band that released two of the biggest return to rock shoegaze records of the aughts. Someone at stereogum has to be over 28, right?
I love comedy as much as the next guy but Color Me Badd is certainly still making music according to wikipedia. Upon seeing that kenny G look-alike I wiki’d them to see who was dead or went bankrupt and was surprised to see they haven’t quite broken up and have in fact reunited as a duo (the vanilla ice guy & the other guy) and are planning on releasing some new music in 2014.
You may have been including color me badd every year as a running gag, and that is hilarious if that is indeed the fact but for all those 40 year old housewives on stereogum, fear not, color me badd is alive and well (not quite well, kenny g guy is now bald, george michael guy is very fat and worked with ICP).
man man on oni pond must have been number 51, right?
I’m a little more upset at the fact that I paid 80 dollars for a ticket.
interpol’s still making music? or music people care about?
well they’ve left spots open but dont most of those festivals forbid you from playing the town months before or after. That pretty much rules out p4k for palooza & p4k.
I exist in the weirdest minority that likes Malkmus solo more then Pavement. I too pulled an all nighter listening to pig lib.
his buddy Aziz was right.
wayne doing drugs at your age is kinda cool but also kinda depressing.
just to throw a little fuel on the fire, ye looks like he needs to drop 15.
