Find Me On:
The fact that I’m the first person to comment on this makes everyone else just seem like boring nerds. This is awesome and more people should give a fuck!
Apparently he’s been banned a number of times. So he’s had more than his fair share of “chances.” I don’t care if he’s nice in person. Most of us don’t have the privilege of knowing him as a person, just an angry bully troll.
Should he be banned? Shouldn’t he? The stereogum staff should just make a decision. But he’s a terrible presence and I personally don’t like how he treats me and others. Hence why I think he should be and remain being banned.
Why? I was surprised he hadn’t been banned sooner after he’s threatened to sue several other folks (myself included), harassing and bullying us all. Apparently he’s been banned before.
Terrible terrible terrible (terrible) idea.
Actually, fuck that. I’m assuming you do know an adequate amount about Xiu Xiu – enough to form an opinion. Fine. Whatever.
Fuck you for thinking that you know the following things about me: 1) I am transphobic, 2) I am cis, 3) I am not a woman, 4) I am not a woman with a dick, 5) I don’t know what transphobia is.
Your upset because a video full of pornographic material included material with trans people in it. Good for you. No representation at any cost.
Ok – whoa. I know what transphobia is. But are you saying this video is transphobic? How? None of the list you linked is represented in the video. And if you were more familiar with Xiu Xiu I think you’d understand that they are anything but.
What does that even mean?
Hey – this was kind of funny! Did not expect that.
People who use the term “neckbeard” – ugh.
What does any of what you said (“ultra-pc reddit-ethic meme spouting neckbeard of a website”) have to do with the album? I would have thought, given your first line, that you would have hated the album BECAUSE of Laura Jane Grace, but that seems to not be the case. What’s your story?
More people should care about this.
Ugh – you’re so right! I don’t know how many time I heard, “Ok so I know those Harlem Shake videos are annoying, but check out this one from my undergrad biology department. My old adviser is the in the fish costume doing the robot.”
This is just kind of sad.
I am mad at myself for initially writing this article off because it was not in list form.
That was supposed to be a reply to shockadow.
Or Abe Vigoda in 2010, or any drag queen from the 70s and 80s.
What a pointless list.
I was being slightly facetious with the “macho dickhead jerks.” it was supposed to be a joke. I guess it’s just hard for me to balance the supposed humor I always intend with actual emotions. But as humor tends to come from truth (and in this case truthful feelings), phrases like “YOU FUCK WITH ME I FUCK WITH YOU HARDER.” just sound like a dickish thing to say and it reminds me of macho people in school (and hell even life) that turn everything into a competition. I guess that’s where I was going with that.
The premise of deleting files from a computer as a way to return something to iTunes not a good joke? I need to work on my shit.
I’m just mad in general.
@jizziemcguire is a really good twitter name.
But yeah, my inclination is to say HAIM sucks on this one, but besides responding with that dumb “we have a bigger show than you do” picture (which is really the only purpose that picture served, right?) and Este’s competitive baloney tweet, they haven’t said much of anything.
I kind of wish I illegally downloaded the HAIM album instead of buy it. Not because I have any sort of LC pride (though I do – “No Blues” is superior to the HAIM album), but just because HAIM seems like jerks. Like macho dickhead jerks.
If I delete the files from my computer, may I get my 8 bucks back?
Oh and Moonface “Julia With the Blue Jeans On” and Los Campesinos! “No Blues”.
Favorites of mine that weren’t on the list:
Frog Eyes “Carey’s Cold Spring”
Blue Hawaii “Untogether”
And probably others I’m missing but can’t think of.
My two cents:
The personal is not political – non-Native Americans can find this racist too, and it’s valid. Conversely, Native Americans can find this NOT racist, and that is just as valid.
It’s clearly racist and misogynistic, but isn’t it supposed to be? I mean, the depiction on the shirt is supposed to be offensive, and hopefully that will make you think about why you find it offensive, and where that comes from (from US history).
Didn’t call you homophobic, just said that you told me you weren’t homophobic. It happened a while ago. And even then I didn’t say that you were homophobic.
For someone with a brand that they seem to care about, you sure do make yourself seem incredibly unlikeable. And you have no legal recourse against my opinion of you (which you have misconstrued and twisted to suit your own needs – vilifying me as some sort of nemesis. save it for someone else, please). You can’t sue someone for saying that they’re homophobic. Otherwise Chick-fil-a would be rolling in lawsuit money.
Also I don’t care about your comparison of Lorde and the Ring girl (Lord of the ring girl – - – just noticed that). I just find your presence on this site to be polarizing and derisive and purposefully trolling.
What about burritos?
