November 18, 2016 on Vince Neil To Play Donald Trump’s Inauguration
Totally. It's the centerpiece of the album to me.

November 18, 2016 on Vampire Weekend Reportedly Sign To Columbia For LP4
See, that's crazy to me, because it's aged better than most of the other Animal Collective stuff to me (and better than most other mid-00 albums). I wish PB would record with that sound again. Or at least release a real version of "Atiba Song," https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=i1vYA9517CU (which I know is more from the Tomboy era but still).

I do! But I've also pretty much been off the train since then. Yeezus had some amazing production and terrible lyrics. Still can't get over that "sweet and sour sauce" line no matter how much I try, and him talking well of Donald Trump doesn't help that "he's just projecting in his songs!" defense go down.

November 18, 2016 on Kanye West: “If I Would’ve Voted, I Would’ve Voted On Trump”
I think the appointment of Bannon pretty much throws out the "maybe he'll only be economically bad and not, like socially bad" argument.

Surprised that anyone here would think he would vote differently tbh.

I really need to give it another shot. It just never stuck with me.

How many of their shows have you been to now?

November 11, 2016 on The Remarkable Popularity Of Leonard Cohen’s “Hallelujah”
I have definitely taken communion while a band covered this song on a youth group mission trip. I might have even been the one leading it, but there's no way to know and fortunately no receipts.

November 11, 2016 on The Remarkable Popularity Of Leonard Cohen’s “Hallelujah”
I'm heartbroken, but in a weird way it makes sense to me. It doesn't feel like a world that deserves someone like Cohen anymore.

November 4, 2016 on Holy Motors Director Enlists Sparks, Maybe Rihanna For English Language Debut
Trying to parse Joe Maddon's insanity was my favorite part of the Series tbh.

November 4, 2016 on Kanye West Loses Voice, Ends LA Show Early
Did anyone else see that thing about Johnny Jewel stealing a song awhile ago? I posted elsewhere about it, but I haven't seen much mention of it on ~the blogs~ which seems odd.

He should model it after this guy: https://a3-images.myspacecdn.com/images03/33/2075aff2d9064cdaab09c71d5c184f54/600x600.jpg

October 31, 2016 on It’s Beginning To Look A Lot Like Christmas Album Time
My family used to go to Trans Siberian Orchestra every year before I left for college (and sometimes after). It drags. That said, the dueling piano players are awesome. Also, let us never forget the greatest Christmas song of all ("An Instant Holiday Classic - Videogum [RIP {INCEPTION}]): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iGNIDXUaVts

October 31, 2016 on Metallica – “Atlas, Rise!”
He likes to hunt bears in Alaska, so I know he's at least into guns. I've seen bits and pieces over the years that suggest he's probably pretty conservative but keeps it close.

October 31, 2016 on Japandroids Announce New Album Near To The Wild Heart Of Life
Although, I recently learned Johnny Jewel was accused of stealing a track from his old label partner and am not sure what to make of it. The original track "The Magician" by Mike Simonetti: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KdZFbvOYNMY "The Magician" by Symmetry: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EycX9nWA1bA Mike tweeted about it, but no one really seemed to have made anything of it. I guess because it's not a big single or anything, but it's still super odd to me. The Guest is rad as hell, though.

October 31, 2016 on ’80s Funk Band Collage Sues Bruno Mars & Mark Ronson Over “Uptown Funk!”
I mean, yeah it's stylistically similar, but if you wanna go this route, there's entire discographies you could say "Uptown Funk" stole from.

I'm not listening to Sam's Town all the way through for the first in years.

Wait. I just looked at the Premature Evaluation and saw Tom thought of the comparison too. Maybe I'm not going crazy!

October 28, 2016 on Shut Up, Dude: This Week’s Best And Worst Comments
So I think I'm going crazy because I finally gave Joanne a listen earlier in the week and spent the next few days trying to figure out what her singing reminded me of and earlier a song came on the radio and I realized it. It's Sam's Town. It's like Gaga went to the same "I have an American drawl now" school as Brandon Flowers in between albums.
