The 2012 Gummy Awards: Vote Now And Enter To Win An iPad With Retina Display
I love how M83 somehow gets listed before Florence & The Machine, the Roots, the Shins, the Afghan Whigs, Iggy & The Stooges, and Weezer. Good ol' Stereogum- keepin' it indie, popularity/importance/relevance be damned.

Austin City Limits 2012 Lineup
I'm extremely thankful I DVRed the episode instead of watching it live; aside from Jagger's performances, I watched no more than ten minutes of the show... and those were still a few minutes too many.

I know I'm echoing what has already been stated, but: What a douchey article. I'm not one to preach sensitivity, but you come off as a huge asshole, tom (if you don't feel your name is important enough to capitalize, I don't, either). "She, I guess?" Yeah, just use "she". It's not that hard. "So: Good for her? I guess?" You sure do a lot of guessing for someone who is supposedly a writer for a living- if you don't know something, maybe you could try not putting a statement in an article for the world to see. Yes, OF COURSE that's good for her. It's great that Laura (nee Tom) is comfortable with who she is/wants to be and is willing to share it with the public, a decision which I can't imagine is simple, and the fact that Heather Gabel is so understanding is downright saintly; we should all be so lucky as to have such loving partners. You should- seriously- be ashamed of yourself, tom. Saying "I feel sort of bad" isn't an apology or an admission of guilt, it's just further proof that your brain is sometimes unable to think before your fingers have already typed. I can't say I've known more than a couple of trans people in my life, but I would sure as hell treat them (and their loved ones) with considerably more respect than you apparently feel they deserve.

Against Me! Frontman To Change Genders
I totally respect Goodie Mob, but if your reunion is lip-syncing, I don't care. You might as well be Milli Vanilli or a Tupac hologram. These guys are too talented for this crap. Also, my god, was that camerawork awful.

"Live and Let Die", without question. Amazingly, I don't think I've ever seen the film.

If you said to me that Thao Nguyen and Carrie Brownstein were going to be nearby and guaranteed that they would play "Push It", then said I'd have to pay $100 to go, I would've been running to an ATM before you finished the sentence.

Seriously, the site and all of its readers have already forgotten about the Ting Tings? Jesus, sorry they're not Lana del Fucking Rey.

The 50+ Most Anticipated Albums Of 2012
I love these ridiculous fake lineups that are supposed to be plausible, until you see, say, Fiona Apple as the 18th-biggest act of the day (behind such luminaries as AMERICAN MARS) or the Civil Wars listed down in can-barely-read-it land.

Awesome, I hate metal and I hate Pitchfork. This is perfect for me! With that said, Brandon, this isn't a knock against you- I totally wish you the best.

Under The Influence: Krallice
I'm going with the Submarines' "You, Me & the Bourgeoisie", and I don't care if I get criticized for that decision. It's a great song, period. (Plus, my other choice would have been ES&tMZ's "Home", which is just as cliché a pick and just as great a track.)
