I personally still don't understand the universal love for Like Clockwork... I thought it was self-important and lacked the fun of previous QOTSA records (this coming from someone who loved Lullabies). Era Vulagaris IMO is criminally underrated. Villains definitely reminded me more of Era mixed with AM, which, to my ears, is an excellent thing.

I'll admit that was pretty damn good, Ryan. Sounds like a Cold Roses track with you on it. I also heard your interview with Maron where you noted Wharf Rat as your favorite Dead tune. I will respectfully disagree and give a nod to China Cat and/or Eyes of the World, which I saw Mayer play with Dead and Co. and was veritably impressed.

August 19, 2017 on Ryan Adams Calls Father John Misty “The Most Self-Important Asshole On Earth”
Guys, I just saw that Mayer posted a pic on Instagram with the text "Rick Flair," and Adams liked it. Cokeparty here seems really invested in this WWE analogy, and Adams certainly seems like the type of guy who'd be into professional wrestling. He also seems like a bit of a troll. Is it possible that they're all in on this to drum up some entertainment? Does this mean that...it's just possible that...COKEPARTY IS RYAN ADAMS?? https://i1.wp.com/mobcblog.wpengine.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/08/kryten-head-bomb-o.gif Probably not, but still.

This is the right answer to all of those bullshit questions. Similarly, What does Arcade Fire sound like in 2017? Garbage, because they're trying to be something they're not, probably because of all the pontificating. Just let these people make good music!

To be fair, I mostly drink Very Old Barton 100 proof bourbon, which costs $16 and is delicious.

An important question - what kind of gin?? I've been deep into the Berkshire stuff recently, especially their "Ethereal" line, which is different with every batch. Also, we brought back some barrel aged stuff from an excellent distillery in the Finger Lakes called Myer that tastes like toasted coconut curry. It's wild and delicious. And now I'm going to go pour myself some King's County moonshine cuz that's where I'm at right now.

I couldn't have done it without the help of the Yeah Yeah Yeahs and their godawful album art. I'll use this platform to talk about how excited I am to see My Morning Jacket tomorrow night for the first time. This year has been one of crossing off concert bucket lists for me - Ryan Adams, Built to Spill, Nick Cave, MMJ, hopefully War on Drugs and possibly Papa John Misty in the fall. It's been a good one.

"I should've forced them to get addicted to writing better songs." I mean, that's a solid, solid burn right there.

A few more comments after reading the interview: - As always, Sean seems like a nice, grounded guy who loves music as much as most of us at SG do. - Wish you'd gone into more talk about the albums, not just "Flagpole Sitta." It's clear Dan's not really a fan (he didn't know about the solo album!), which isn't a knock, just a bit of a disappointment. - I need to hear that Nelson Sings Nilsson album.

One of my favorite bands and one of the most under-appreciated bands ever. I feel like they're finally getting some level of well-deserved recognition. It's the thrilling conversation I've been waiting for aHOOOOOOO!

This is where I'm at. I'm not understanding the "it's not as bad as I've heard" thing. I texted a few of my music obsessive friends after giving it a few listens and described it as "borderline unlistenable." Aside from maybe 3 tracks, I still feel that way. "Chemistry," "Signs of Life" and "Peter Pan" make me physically uncomfortable in vicarious embarrassment. If this were put out by anyone other than AF no one would give it more than one listen.
