Well, this is certainly a late-period UNKLE track, that's for sure.

January 20, 2017 on UNKLE – “Sick Lullaby” (Feat. Keaton Henson)
I kind of agree with him, but at the same time what I find especially amazing is how terrible so many bands actually are at social media to begin with. Hip Hop and R&B are light years ahead of basically any new 'rock' band I see online anymore. I see people dropping new singles and mix tapes all the time, and they really have their look figured out, and how they want to be seen, and what they're about. And it feels like there's twenty of em every day. And then one a week, some new band farts out this picture of 2-5 awkward people who don't even seem to know how to dress themselves, let alone stand together, with a shitty name and a 27 minute album, and I'm supposed to be impressed? I miss rock giving a fuck.

Whenever I learn more about Deadmaus, I find it increasingly impossible to believe that he actually exists.

I don't even watch basketball and I think this could be awesome.

I would be pretty okay with the '2017 major works' turning out to be another couple of EPs of similar length. I wasn't that jazzed about it being only 21 minutes at first, but hell if it isn't a perfect length to reward playing on repeat.

Kind of impressive how out of touch he is.

If A Perfect Circle has just announced tour dates in April and May, I'm guessing no new Tool before, uh, July at the earliest.

He's played Villains before. There was a thing a few years back where he said he owed James Lavelle a favor and Homme had to play it live for him. I think that might've even been in like the end of 2013 or something. What I'm really saying is, it's been a long ass time since there's been any new Queens of the Stone Age.

Me, I figured Peotus would get an Elvis hologram or something. Maybe with a Jack Benny hologram to open for him.

December 10, 2016 on Garth Brooks In Talks To Play Trump Inauguration, No Other Major Artists Willing
This is just my highly subjective and uninformed opinion, but... Kanye doesn't look too well in that pic. Maybe it's just a funky pic, but something in his expression and body language is throwing me off hardcore.

Kid Rock realized that if he starts now, he can eat Ted Nugent's lunch for the next twenty or so years.

man, I miss Mastodon. I'm glad they're following their muses and so on, but. I do miss that Leviathan-era stuff. Is there another band carrying that particular torch now?

I'm both for and against this. Ultimately this was mostly about pissing people off, which is kind of an important thing to be able to do. But I'm pretty sure he could've come up with a more creative way to do it than this.

Arguably the best part of the Starboy collaboration right there.

I know, right? I would've expected he was going to call for the outright demolition of every car on the planet if his demands were not meant or something.

I have never seen this man in motion. The stills of his face seem quite enough to keep him on mute. Great choice, Grammys

I mean, I worry for Kanye. On the one hand I do seriously believe that as a human being the guy's got a unique set of filters in terms of how he sees the world. Actually reading his rant word for word, there's a lot of stuff in there that comes off to me as a guy fighting to keep his head above the water while looking at the world around him. That said, it also seems like Kanye is caught up in the grips of a slow-burning, Akira finale-level meltdown. Each time feels like a bigger thing than the last one was. I don't know where this is heading but it definitely feels like it's heading somewhere Not Good, like in another year Kanye ends up being the Syd Barrett of hiphop or something.

This probably is going to read why more facetious than I want to it be, but... Uh, is Kanye, like, okay? Are we watching a psychotic break in slow motion here?

I mean, He's got very little incentive or cause to sugarcoat one god damn thing at this point. Moby's frequently a wearying man in public, but the only thing I'll fault him for in this letter is his failure to hit the space bar reliably.

It's probably not saying a lot, but this preview video was a lot better than any of the ones he put out for Pale Emperor and Born Villain.

November 8, 2016 on Marilyn Manson – “Say10″ Video
I usually chalk that moment up to Halloween. I'd hoped Manson would use it as a day to NOT traipse around in black and pancake makeup and maybe dress up in overalls and a corncob pipe or something. But it's probably a guaranteed payday for him every year, so....
