I built a large portion of my music collection by buying used CDs. Mostly filling in gaps. But you just made me understand something I never got before. I always wondered “Why is great stuff like My Bloody Valentine and Stereolab and Tortoise just sitting here? How come nobody has snapped these things up yet?”

I love Frankie Rose and all, but why release a video now for a single that came out eight months ago? Also, I get the connection between “Know Me” and the retinal-scan identification thing here (I think), but if you’re going to take the trouble to make a “futuristic”, “sci-fi” video, shouldn’t you make sure that at least one interesting thing happens in said video?

Still love the song!

“Great rack” is my favourite typo today. “Bikini hill” is a close second. It helps if you picture Beth Ditto while reading them.

Skrillex doesn’t need anyone to defend him. He’s doing fine. I’ve seen him live, and while I wasn’t nearly as impressed as tom was, I don’t see any reason to hate on the guy. FFTL was an okay band, too.

Slow down, cowboy. Nobody stole anything from anyone.

Even the dopest track in the world would instantly suck with that voice on it. Ick.

Didn’t she already cover “A Forest”? Only she retitled it “Daniel”.

If there’s a Santigold interview at that Life + Times site, they’ve done a very thorough job of hiding it.

I would count the Beatles one as being a “record label” shoe, given that it features the Apple Corps logo so prominently.
