Find Me On:
That joke was funny two years ago when South Park did an entire show around it.
The internet is not an accurate representation of true human interaction.
I think it should be common practice for people to apologize for typos at the end of everything they post to the internet. Except me, I’m perfect.
The price of living in a small world is all of the psychotic losers are a lot closer to you.
I use the word “psychotic” loosely there, obviously, but the fact of the matter is there is no reasoning with a lot of the people who say hateful, ignorant things on the internet. They aren’t there to learn, they’re there to vent and try to feel big by tearing someone else down. There is the occasional ill-advised post by someone trying to be funny or who is misinformed that would be willing to appreciate their mistake. But the internet is such an unforgiving place that when someone does misstep like that, instead of trying to intelligently explain it to them, everyone jumps at the chance to feel self righteous and spews at some hateful ignorant put down in response.
I can think of countless examples from Stereogum alone.
Like that big computer said to Dr. Falken, the only way to win is not to play. Like any would-be bully, don’t engage them and they’re powerless. Unfortunately, that tactic won’t always work for someone of Sky’s stature, so I get the frustration. But, ultimately, this is a part of the world we live in now. The internet gives everyone a loud speaker, even to those no one wants to hear.
It is no “Get Lucky” but it’s definitely one the most pop sounding things Chromeo has done yet.
I love how she actually puts on a performance when she performs on TV, what a novel idea.
In theory this could help the flow of foot traffic if it only makes the shrill beeping sound if you need to swipe again. Of course, idiots still wouldn’t notice.
Kind of like having The Hell’s Angels run security at your rock concert.
Well, he’ll also have to maintain that her story is false, of course. But he doesn’t have to prove it, because it would be impossible to. How does someone prove that they’ve never met someone? It would be on her to provide evidence that the rape occurred.
Not that it matter too much, this is going to soon be settled or dropped.
The dangers of posting uncorroborated stories you find on the interwebs all willy nilly on your own site.
It’s easy to say he should ignore it up until sites like Stereogum start running pieces saying “Did Conor Oberst rape a girl?” and “True or not, this will haunt his career forever.”
Suddenly its not just some girl on her Tumblr, but a big, well known music website owned by an even bigger more well known parent group.
It doesn’t take much for things to get out of hand with the internet these days.
I need to go and listen to Pinkerton because I’ve clearly forgotten what it sounds like.
Are people slow dancing?
He’s like a more sane Morrissey.
I miss my N64.
Plus, you said “non-troversy, and that just sounds really lame.
This life is a joke.
That video clip was available for about zero seconds.
Great sound. Also, not terribly painful to look at, either.
Eh, he was. Not so sure he still holds the championship belt for that title.
I think a lot of the commenters are too young for Dookie to be in the top 5. I’m 27 and my copy was a burnt copy from my sister’s.
General rule of thumb, no matter how right or measured you think your criticism is, just avoid posting on things about bands or music you don’t like. You will get downvoted mercilessly.
Unless its about Imagine Dragons. Don’t nobody like that shit.
Definitely hear the David Byrne in the vocals. The Peter Gabriel vibe for me comes more with the arrangement.
A Janitor is not a Department-store manager.
And this, Ladies and Gentlemen, is why I hate the Facebook “people”.
“I think soccer players used to do this, like Pele.” Love that line.
Rainbows are more of just a showy dribbling move like bouncing the ball on your head, they’re not really practical in a game. She seems to have some talent with the ball, surprised she wouldn’t know that.
