I like the thought here, but I had to downvote you for downvoting someone because you disagreed with an opinion.
This is too close to Christmas. What product is she telling us to buy? Jay-Z was very clear about Samsung, and I don’t have time to figure this out.
d-tits is getting downvoted for 0ur sins n no1 realizes it but da #trubelievers
Let’s talk about how annoying Childish Breihan is.
Great question. I don’t know how to answer that. When I listen to Disclosure, it’s just kind of obvious.
Louis C.K. and Patton Oswalt. I don’t even care how aesthetically displeasing that might be. I would lol and stroke til my mother showed up and told me to stop.
I get what Renaton was talking about, but I think the video was mainly funny because it was Seth Rogen and James Franco, and not necessarily because it was two guys. I mean… it’s Seth Rogen. And James Franco. It’s hilarious, and I masturbated to it. If it was Tina Fey and Amy Poehler I would think that was hilarious too, and I would also probably masturbate to it.. If it was Aziz Ansari and Rashida Jones I would think that was hilarious too, and I would also probably masturbate to it. If it was Jon Hamm and Charlize Theron I would think it was hilarious too, and I would also probably masturbate to it. Let’s be honest, I masturbated to Kim and Kanye too. All of these options are hilarious and prime spank material. I mean… have you ever laughed while masturbating? You’re missing out.
Listen. I think Kanye is a dumbass. I ALSO think Kanye is a genius. I love all of his albums, and MBDTF is probably on my list of top 10 albums of all time. I do not think Yeezus was the best album of the year. I think it may have been the most sonically interesting album of the year, but his dumbass lyrics make it no where near the best album of the year.
So that’s where I stand on Kanye West. He’s an idiot and a genius simultaneously.
We really need to stop making him apologize for things, because he’s not our son. If we like his talent for vomiting out words until the truth comes out sometimes, we should stop sitting around waiting for something to come out of his mouth that we can call offensive. We are condescending, and we are treating him like a monkey that we reward when he does something nice. Let him vomit, because he’s done a really nice job at it so far.
If you listen to the audio, and the words he emphasizes, he says “Black people don’t have the same level of connections as JEWISH PEOPLE”
He’s not complaining about Jewish people “having connections” (whatever that means), but claiming that, between the two groups, black people are more marginalized in the U.S. in this day and age. It’s a stupid thing to say, but he’s not smearing Jews in any way.
I did kind of wince when he said that originally, but I know what he meant. He was referring to Jewish people as another marginalized group, historically and presently, not unlike Black people. It was a random comparison, and wasn’t really necessary, but I don’t see it as anti-Semitic because he wasn’t drawing from any kind of stereotype. It was kind of a dumb remark, but I think it was an innocent one.
I will never understand complaints about an album being too long. If the songs are good, who cares how long the album is? It’s more music!
So much of this will sound dated in just a few years.
Brooklyn is fucking obnoxious up and down.

“What can we do next to make us look even more insufferably pretentious, so that it takes yet little more effort for people to admit our new album is brilliant? We aren’t trying people’s patience with us enough yet.” – Arcade Fire
If it’s any consolation, the only time I ever got #1 was when Corky upvoted me from 50 different accounts.
I’ll always kick myself for not seizing the opportunity to see them at a venue smaller than a professional basketball stadium.
Yes. We must put them in the same category lest the world become more complicated to understand.
Stereogum isn’t the government, so this isn’t really a matter of free speech.
I can see how it’s wise to redact Ian Cohen’s name, since the act of reposting the comment as the “Best Comment” is Stereogum choosing to print “Fuck Ian Cohen” in a segment where even more people will see it, and they probably want to avoid bad blood between their site and Pitchfork.
However, given the amount of artists who are no where near as much of a public figure as Ian Cohen that he has mercilessly smeared from the powerful platform that Pitchfork affords him, I don’t really buy this “he’s not a public figure” argument.
So here’s the middle ground: the redaction is understandable, but seriously, fuck Ian Cohen all the same.
Sometimes I refrain from commenting and just wait to see if someone else says what I would have said.
Pretty psyched to see what Miley does after being introduced to heroin.
(REDACTED) is the worst thing to happen to music criticism though.
And by (REDACTED), I mean Ian Cohen.
He usually seems younger than my dad…. not here though.
