For real. That "Marvin Gaye" video is basically "hey look at these teens having sex!" with a very intentionally framed shot of Trainor's ass thrown in for good measure.

Serious question: How are tapes cheaper for young bands than a CD-R?

I had an IRL LOL from the way the main page only shows the top of his head and the jump reveals the whole dumb mug. I hope that shit was intentional because it is hilarious.

Totally horrible. And I know it's not at all what you're saying, but I'm going to piggyback and expand on that "The internet is horrible" statement and just note that I think we need to start really finding that unacceptable. So often everyone just kind of shrugs and says "It's the internet! What did you expect?" and in some ways, I often find that behavior even worse. It's indifferent and enabling. It sucks that it has to happen, but it's also awesome that she's calling these people out. They should be called out. It's not squandering freedom of speech--often the go-to rebuttal for this sort of thing--to let people know they're disgusting monsters (of the non-Videogum variety, most of whom were and are very nice).

What thoughts do you suppose pass through the minds of the people in the front row, ohhing and clapping their hands, erecting artifices of good times, when they look in the mirror and attempt to reconcile what they have done?

Oh, I've definitely been bringing them up. I've been listening to SR a lot again lately, and the pain is still too real. Moonface has some decent stuff, but it's definitely not as strong or interesting other than maybe the With Sinai: Heartbreaking Bravery stuff. Even, that, though sticks to only one mode--even if it explores it pretty well.

My definition is just that both Random Spirit Lover and Dragonslayer received BNM (and solid scores) but didn't make their respective end of year lists. I was perplexed at the time. Both still great albums.

Now if they sold their guitars and bought turntables, they'd really be pushing themselves forward.

LOL @ romanticizing the Stereogum comment section of yore. Yeah, that was a place super well renown for fully formed discourse.

But I leave out necessary "e"s so I wonder. . . am I the monster?

The problem with them is that they have achieved a Late Night with Seth Myers level of mediocrity.

April 20, 2015 on Mumford & Sons – “Snake Eyes”
I'm honestly curious, though: is it the tone of it that makes it mansplaining? If he's elaborating on the meaning, thought, and perspective behind a song he wrote, how does he avoid falling into that trap? Is him talking about the lyrics behind "Let It Happen" mansplaining? I guess, I'm just curious as to how he could elaborate on the song--which for the record _did_ make me roll my eyes at first--without it coming off that way. "Let it Happen" is definitely the better song, though.

Damn. I was originally gonna go with a Pynchon joke but didn't want to seem too ~highbrow~. Maybe Rocketman is on the vocals, that poor fucker.
