this has been covered a lot. i think i once heard it covered by a tuvan throat singer on npr a few years ago. i don't think that makes it a lame thing to do. i suppose i view it more as a jazz standard for modern musicians. additionally, i do like the direction bss have taken here. while not completely destroying the original style, they added their own texture. nice.

wayne is acting like a bitch. sure the flaming lips are great, sure arcade fire are great. i don't know, it's annoying when musicians make vague asshole comments. does wayne also hate miles davis? even if arcade fire are dicks, there are so many musicians far better than win who are much bigger assholes.

it is difficult to disagree with the fact that ticketmaster completely sucks. thankfully there are some better options, such as ticketweb, in chicago that actually are used at some really great venues.

the pacing of the video and the semi-chinsy effects combined with the quirky, creative animation really well go with the song well. Great song. good video.

i'm so sick of mgmt. srsly. the album has like three songs that are really catchy initially but become rather annoying after a couple listens. maybe seeing them live (twice, at lolla and opening for beck) helped me realize that these guys bother me.

frampton used a voice box, utilizing a speaker that he could put in his mouth. he could then shape his mouth so his guitar sounded like words. this is different. did anyone see the guy who did use a voice box in kanye's band on the glow in the dark tour? that guy was sick.

i recently re-bought this album, and i totally agree. loads better than the cheesy crap mentioned above, this album is gritty, textured and fun as hell.

i saw them live, mainly because i wanted to see yacht (who was, as usual, amazing). they weren't that sweet. i've never gotten the hype. the radiohead comment is laughable. the overuse of the word 'lexicon' is just funny. thanks for not being a cool dude, so i don't mind not liking your music.

kanye's show in chicago was pretty sick. i understand why he wouldn't want to perform something less impressive when he's put so much effort into this tour. i sincerely believe that he's a hard working artist and i respect him, even though he is a douche most of the time. i think his ridiculous blog post is actually legit.

i always thought this was one of the few of the beatles? late songs that actually were pretty collaborative - paul with his poppy melody and crisp bass line and john taking his drenched-in-reverb, more experimental approach. it truly highlights why both of them were so good in different ways. i didn?t think this one was really more john than paul?

this almost annoys me as much as jerry and bobby?s live vocals due - dissonant garbage.

i must admit that i do enjoy post-colour foo fighters, even though i know it?s not as groundbreaking as most fans would claim. on the other hand, die hard metallica fans are pretty much the most annoying people possible, as i learned seeing metallica twice when i was a young lad. furthermore, it?s pretty ridiculous to claim that dave grohl is the best drummer of the past 20 years. he?d probably slap you for saying that. at any rate, i?d probably give dave an hj in a heartbeat? srsly. or maybe not.

May 9, 2008 on Dave Grohl Writes Metallica A Letter
please folks, can we do some more name dropping. those long lists of electronic bands?you know so much obscure music; i?m impressed. that being said, you make a good point. this article is pathetic. there are plenty examples of acts recording and performing electronic music that are selling records and playing sold out shows. isn?t it more hip to listen to electronic music now than it was in the late 90s? i know i like it, and i?m cool as fuck. don?t make me spit out an obnoxious list of bands to prove it?

i love how uncontested boston seems to be. i do agree with the sublime call. electric six, perhaps? it?s tough to say, because i really enjoyed their first album, but once the other stuff came out, i felt foolish for enjoying them in the first place; their clever irony was turned into immature blah.

i think that pretending not to like something because it's popular is significantly more lame than only liking popular things.
