"You could argue that baby Tinashe was a better pure vocalist than Dylan has ever been." I love your writing dude (usually) but, for as someone as into hip-hop as you are, that sentence is unacceptable. I know exactly what you mean, but it's all about the output as a whole, which you are acutely aware of. No one as good at words as Dylan is/was should ever be used in this way.

God damn do I love this guy. All of my favorite 2013 releases were metal, and then there was Southeastern. It continues to knock me flat on my ass on, at least, a weekly basis. Cover Me Up is maybe my single favorite song of the past 5 years or so. I may have shed a manly tear or two when I finally heard it live a few months ago. No blubbering of course. That's ridiculous! This is a predictably spectacular tribute. God damn...again.

Haha I never thought this was very funny but the downvotes are. Corny joke but I did not expect that!

Spoon motherfuckers. The rest of you can go home. Effortlessly awesome, per usual. I turned someone on to Spoon last year and they were incredulous that they'd never heard of them. It was a "holy shit" moment for this guy. I just laughed and said "turn the radio off". Then I calmly explained that Spoon is one of the greatest bands of all time and that I honestly think they suffer a bit because they are so consistently great. "Ho hum, another great Spoon record. Damned by consistent excellence." Not sure how much sense that makes but I get it!

They're making a Super Troopers II, on a completely different topic. That is one terrible sentence. This movie will also be about a bunch of bumbling but affable group of local cops who suck at their jobs but somehow crack a crime ring, all the while engaging in their tomfoolery and/or shenanigans. I'm guessing.

Nailed it. Grohl's the biggest mainstream supporter of underground metal so I applaud him for that. The Foos tunes? Not so much.

I guess you've never heard Rand Paul speak. Like Axl Rose, no one has ever accused this guy of being stupid. An insane, self-absorbed douchebag with a massive god complex, sure.

May 13, 2015 on Spoon – “Inside Out” Video
The song is called "Miss You". Please tell me you're familiar with it. It's the Stones for crying out loud. They also did "Bitch", also by the Stones I'm assuming. The setlist is right there!

Led Zeppelin, still one of the finest bands that has ever existed, always did that and it is the one little thing that always drove me crazy. Guys, it's cool. You took songs and "Zeppelinized" them. We don't care. They fucking rule so just admit it.

Outfuckingstanding! Love to see the Tipster getting all this attention/work. I nearly lost my mind when he showed up onstage at the Jack White show in NYC a couple months ago. I guess what I'm saying is, great track.
