I’ve been desperately avoiding these Kanye interviews like the plague, but I will give this one a go.
You will hear from me in a few.
Why is the world like this.
In terms of K-Pop, Tom, you really dropped the ball on forgetting to include this ridiculously awesome black and white T.O.P. video. A must watch for the weirdness factor.
I just sent a really long reply, but I don’t know, it’s not showing up on the comments.
To sum it up:
You’re sending flak to the wrong guy. I defend gay rights all the time. The media has conditioned just about most people. It’s not so much a perception as it is just what we grew up with. The fact that I’m on the internet and I’m on your side listening to what you have to say means we have gone a long way in supporting gay rights. I’m sure Tom’s tone didn’t imply any mal-intent or bigotry.
Yes, because it was 2 guys making out. Even though I support gay rights to the highest degree and I pretty much have a superhero complex whenever any gay person is being bullied, doesn’t mean that I didn’t feel uncomfortable. You don’t have to be so transparent about a thing happening right in front of you just because you objectively stand against it. How often do you see two guys kissing each other?
A part of me is also just very fidgety about any sort of intimacy or PDA, but I guess that’s just how my environment affected me.
I thought just the concept alone was the main focal point and was funny in itself. The fact that they would faithfully re-do the whole video in contrast to anything that makes sense for them doing it in the first place….. That’s the socially nuanced point of the comedy isn’t it? ARE YOU NOT ENTERTAINED?!
But also, I did find it hard to watch though.
Am I a bad person?
“To everyone really upset about us asking people to dress up at our shows… please relax. It’s super not mandatory. It just makes for a more fun carnival when we are all in it together. So far these have been the best shows we have ever played.
See you soon.
But in short, I basically realized that a hefty majority of Stereogum commenters have sticks up their asses.
o look at me double posting.
Are you always on your period or something?
I bet you hate cake and babies and pillows.

Jhene Aiko instead of Future? I’m super fine with this.
Start first with not actually believing that it’s just a you versus them mentality.
Maybe it’s moreso the fact that you’re approaching the comment boards with an agenda and you’re getting frustrated by your own obsessiveness with constant downvotes that your claims with Kanye keep straying further away from legitimate and closer to generically biased and derivative (in what world really is Kanye’s talent akin to Miley? That’s such a tunnel-visioned “hurr durr all mainstream artists deserve to be generalized” argument.
Downvotes are normal thingamobs on the internet, okay?. Now get over yourself, you silly beret man!
Was disappointed with the Janelle video because Primetime is on my top 10 songs of 2013.
I think Tyler deserved a shout out here.
You really haven’t lived until you’ve heard Dope Song live.
Lil Snupe alone makes this tape worth a listen, but there’s so much to like about the whole tape.
This whole thing, of course, coming from a lukewarm Meek Mill fan.
I think the contrast of CHVRCHES, the overtly bloggable band that is being exposed to the same evil sphere of mainstream-following mental fuck ups (the ones that reply to every celebrity tweets with extremely explicit and neurotic messages, for example) versus CHVRCHES, the local band with humble beginnings that seem to have their feet and business grounded in reality and homespun relations, is what really gets to me.
I lose faith in society every time idolization turns into fanaticism and outlets for inward (not to mention sexually frustrated) mental health issues.
Like Earl said in a video, looking at Twitter and some of the replies celebrities get, literally wants to make me kill myself. It’s a horrible place. The anonymity of communication these days reveals an unimaginably sad reality.
What a terrible terrible way to format this page. Seriously. My laptop has never lagged at a slower rate trying to this load a page. This is not an enjoyable experience for me.
UNDERSTAND MY NEEDS STEREOGUM.
But also, I’m conflicted with the idea of a list of 100 songs, let alone Drake songs. I mean, you were basically just poking fun at Drake from 100-70 or whatever, but then you really start to take him seriously when it came down to the Top 10.
Love the playlist. I was always rooting for:
But the greatest achievement on this list was definitely “clipping.” It’s clipping, bitch.
Fuck the paparazzi doe.
Me and my friends played this song over and over countless times on a roadtrip around Washington. Possibly the song of the year for me.
no your wrong.
no your wrong
Whoops, wasn’t meant as a reply.
