Ah, Cary already said essentially the same thing. As you were.

August 26, 2014 on Savages’ Jehnny Beth Rails Against Rock Festivals’ Class System
I can see something like what Jimmy Fallon does on his show working here; have an elevated semi circle around the back of the stage perhaps, standing room only. VIP, family and friends can stand and watch from there, a bird's eye view of the band playing directly below them (albeit facing in the other direction). This satisfies two things for the average VIP attendee, I would think; the need to be seen by others, and the need to feel above everyone else. Other than that, though, fuck'em; get in line and wait around the stage all day for front row position like the rest of us.

This guy deserves to be playing Jack White-type gigs; headlining Glastonbury, that sort of stuff. He just rocks so hard.

I found the whole season to be a bit mediocre. Not bad! Certainly not bad. But it lacked a lot of the things that I love about the show--the villains (the one this season barely counted, and was essentially just a beefed up redo of the dominatrix we were all introduced to previously), the interesting and compelling cases (again, the Mayfly man wasn't BAD..it just wasn't that good, either). And then the reveal about Mary, without giving too much away, was really quite dumb. BUT the best man speech was just so perfect, as was the reveal to close out the season, even if everyone (should have) saw it coming. Wanted better, got less, still satisfied.

"Use your brain before you talk. Better yet, go unplug the Ethernet cable from the back of your computer and then go think long and hard about how stupid you are to believe such a idiot story" Such a dope concluding statement.

Wayne needs to step up his lie-game. That Arcade Fire 'true version of events' was such bullshit, it hurt to read,.

Maybe he took all of the packets from the table and just left one. or maybe who cares because the show is over and far more unrealistic things happened in that episode alone (the gun) , not to mention the series as a whole and it was GREAT

September 26, 2013 on Read Godspeed You! Black Emperor’s Statement On “Weird,” “Tone-Deaf” Polaris Gala
You're like Donald Trump on Letterman "It's an easy question, yes or no?" "it's not easy because I'm thoughtful" Seriously, don't cop out of your ignorant statements regarding incarceration patterns because the venue is informal. If you can take the time to read the article then you can take the time to respond thoughtfully.

"YOU’RE IN THE SAME HOUSE, WALT JR., JUST WALK TO WHERE YOUR FATHER IS. Except don’t, because of the way he looks!" *initial reading*: JESUS Kelly, that's a bit of a low blow *upon further consideration*: ahhhh, right. You meant how Walt looks, what with his face and all.

Unfortunately they tagged him as writing for Stereogum, unless that's some sort of joke, too? A joke within an article about men who tell jokes? Is that how jokes work? I guess it's becoming pretty clear why I didn't make that list (not to mention that I'm fugly :( ).

I feel like we're overlooking an important element here, namely that the dome doesn't react to mole skins. If everyone just wrapped themselves in mole skins, they could go crashing about in that dome all day, maybe make a fun new sport out of it.

June 25, 2013 on What Would You Do If You Were Under The Dome?!
I have neither read the book nor seen the movie, but I'm surprised by the lack of La-Z-Boys in the trailer, so I imagine I'd bring one in (can you do that?) and sit in it all day, saying things like "no, you can't sit in my La-Z-Boy", all while thinking that I should have really set the bowl of chips closer to me.

In GOB's 'Entourage' intro, when Rod Howard says something about how a specific LA location is a "playground at night for the young, wealthy and successful", the camera pans by a sign that we later learn is Jeremy Piven's club, 'And'...."playground at night for the young, wealthy and successful *And Jeremy Piven*" That was so damn funny.
