Comments from Jordan

I haven’t liked their last few albums at all (loved most of All That You Can’t Leave Behind though), but I’m still very interested in hearing about their new singles whenever they arrive. I’m not particularly interested in their other news or song debuts unless it’s a single, part of the Spider-Man musical, or particularly good…

August 24, 2010 on U2 – “Every Breaking Wave” Live

I love it!
It’s like The Joshua Tree mixed with Darkness on the Edge of Town, yet completely original!

July 23, 2010 on Arcade Fire – The Suburbs Premature Evaluation

Also agreed, The Monitor was my favorite album of the year so far and certainly at least top-10 material!

I absolutely love a decent chunk of Avi Buffalo’s album (Summer Cum, Jessica, What’s In It For), but as a whole, it’s not even close in quality to High Violet by The National or Beach Fossils’ album in my opinion

July 2, 2010 on Cruel Summer: Stereogum Summer Jams 2010

I love this band, but I really wish everything I love wasn’t covered in meat today (ie this video, the KFC Double Down ads on here).. it’s really grossing me out..

April 14, 2010 on Best Coast – “When I’m With You” Video

Just watched What’s Eating Gilbert Grape and it’s easily one of the worst movies I’ve ever seen. It just isn’t entertaining. At all. (except for the 10 seconds or so that John C. Reilly is in it, but that’s just because he’s John C. Reilly) It’s kind of like if Napoleon Dynamite was a drama, but with far blander characters. A miserable, pointless movie.

January 22, 2010 on Dear 2012, Leno To Host White House Correspondents’ Dinner

It would be amazing if the album version sounded like this, but alas, there’s nearly no chance of that happening…

Best Sega Dreamcast game ever!

January 19, 2010 on Pixar Explains The Leno/O’Brien Late Night Feud

pretty easily the best song they’ve (well ,Billy Corgan has) made since the singles from Melon Collie…
I surprisingly actually like this!

January 14, 2010 on New Dan Deacon Video – “Woof Woof”

You guys, we should make a lemonade stand (on the internet) and then hire this guy to do Videogum weather every day!

January 8, 2010 on Goodbye, Al Kaprielian, Whoever You Are!

I have a feeling he’d love it.. Ever hear The Replacements’ cover of I Got You Babe? It’s sloppily fantastic (just like all their covers of songs)
(Obviously, Unsatisfied has a lot more emotion behind it, but I think Courtney does an interesting take on it)

January 6, 2010 on Hole Is Back, Sort Of

Ma’am, I don’t mean to be impolite, but do you actually read Stereogum, or do you just have a Google News Alert about Owl City? At least 9 out of 10 of the news articles discuss bands that are well-liked here. Can there not be one band to discuss and hate on?

January 5, 2010 on Owl City Rips Off Album Art, Too

you would think that with all the stealing this guy does, he could turn it into something decent.. you know, like Girl Talk does.

as with most videos, this video becomes about two-hundred times better with the Benny Hill Theme played over it

January 4, 2010 on All Girl Juggalo Mosh Pit. You’re Welcome!

I like the Magnetic Fields’ song, but it sounds eerily similar to Busby Berkelely Dreams from 69 Love Songs..

Dude.. Lou Reed not naming his app “Lou Read” or “The Lou Reader” was such a missed opportunity
