I want to be excited for new Forest Swords bug I can't shake the feeling something that was present in Engravings is missing on this new stuff.

This whole set of circumstances is supremely fucked up. Why in the god damn hell would anyone reveal that someone died on the bus you'd be touring on. Let alone, you know, the whole premise of being someone grappling with sobriety and addiction and learning the person you are literally replacing is someone who died from the same kinds of things you yourself are fighting every day.

Anyone who wants doubt can find it, I suppose. But a trail revealing that these charges are much more legally complicated and less clear cut than they initially appeared when presented to the public is a pretty fucking far cry from the idea that Kesha was lying.

I was impressed that Snoop dug out the old school blue-gray flannel for his pot shot at the Donald.

Although you make good points, they're very much points that only work out in a long-game sort of way-especially if you look at the actual conversion rates for streaming royalties. I would imagine Ty is looking more at the money he can make this quarter, rather than what stuff might be like in three years if he consistently maintains his profile without ever having to take a break.

Lanegan's been moving into a more techno direction for a while now, so it's nice to hear something a little more organic out of him.

Help me out here. I can't see a download option on this.

This reminds me a little too much of that time Scott Stapp fought 311 singlehandedly.

I don't know where else to put this but it just occurred to me that Katy Perry's new look kinda seems like she's pretending to be Kesha.

After the Jesse Hughes debacle, it's only good business sense of Queens to voice their own official declaration. Josh Homme is more of a quiet conservative in many regards. I would like to think that a statement like this from Queens should stand out more than a traditionally leftist band.

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

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 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.

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.

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.
