I seriously hope you’ve started working on the next Justin Vernon family tree.

“who once bragged to Pitchfork in some now-deleted interview about driving around looking for stray dogs to run over”

I think I just threw up a little.

I was like, “boots? Lame,” but then I watched it and I was like, “ok cool.” Mostly because there weren’t any boots.

Yup. Same thing happened to me when I first heard Raffi’s “Baby Beluga.” Stay strong, ace.

I’m definitely most excited about new Wild Beasts. Smother was so under-appreciated.

August 14, 2013 on Volcano Choir – “Comrade”

You can’t contract “you” and “were.” Arctic Monkeys fail English.

August 11, 2013 on Arctic Monkeys – “Why’d You Only Call Me When You’re High?” Video

Totally agree with this. I always take a couple photos. Just turn up the iso and you’ll be fine. Even if they don’t turn out, just sharpen / lighten / reduce noise / edit the crap out of them so they look cool. I have a pretty sweet collection. And I don’t post them online anywhere.

Depressing at first, but I suppose it’s better that he quits while he’s ahead right? Plus, maybe we can hear The Shouting Matches album that was supposedly in the works now.

September 27, 2012 on Justin Vernon: Bon Iver Is “Winding Down”

I believe he said that the whole thing was a marketing ploy, probably in the same interview that Levi mentioned. That really bummed me out, but then he released Age of Adz and I forever forgave him.

@Purplerap
I suggest we agree to disagree at this point. I’m glad you left satisfied. I left feeling like I was either going to pass out or loose my lunch. For real.

I was sitting just in front of the main exit bytheway.

March 7, 2012 on Bradford Cox Covers “My Sharona” For An Hour In Concert

@Purplerap
The people smiling at the end were the people that stayed until the end. It looked like nearly half the crowd had left. I see what your saying and maybe Bradford thought it was fun, but it doesn’t take originality or “artsiness” to repeat the same riff (someone else’s riff, mind you) and yell at people for an hour. The Cedar could have had Bradford Cox open for “slightly drunk & severely insane homeless man”. We would have had a very similar show.

March 7, 2012 on Bradford Cox Covers “My Sharona” For An Hour In Concert

That’s true. The whole thing just left me with a really bad taste in my mouth. Hearing that riff for an hour was insanely nauseating. I wanted Lightworks darndit!
