College Dropout has some of my favorite songs, but way too much filler, Fantasy is probably the best album as an album, but Late Registration has a diverse range of quality songs that are redeemable for different reasons and lacks the filler of College Dropout. So those bounce around a lot in my rankings.

Damn man, it’s not even like he worded something in a questionable way or made a regrettable statement, he just dove so so deep into ignorance and just kept talking just to make sure defenders could have as little defend him with as possible.

August 26, 2015 on Morrissey Has More To Say About Obama’s Whiteness

If it ends up on a network channel (Fox,nbc,cbs,abc) I feel like it’ll either turn out like Fresh off the boat, if it covers his childhood or it’ll resemble something like Mulaney if it just focuses on his adult like. It’s crazy how unfunny a network sitcom could make John Mulaney. I could see it being decent as an fx, fxx, or comedy central show.

I haven’t watched the video yet, but from your description it seems like Stewart fits into the narrative because his current existence seems to be the goal existence for Rocky in the video.

I disagree about his views on the confederate flag and feel he his completely missing the point of the backlash against it, but attitudes like this one are exactly what sparks this kind of misguided defensiveness from proud southerners about the flag.

You’re description of your perception of the south and southerners is pretty similar to how a racist describes/explains/defends their prejudices, which is why a lot of completely non-racist southerners feel like they and their entire culture are being attacked by backlash for the flag. Yelawolf does not like the flag because he hates black people and he’s not racist for liking the flag because it represents something completely different to him just like it does for a lot of non racist and even some black southerners. Their missing the other side of the argument because they think it is all coming from a place of prejudice against southerners (like yours) instead of understanding how the confederate flag has these associations and represents so many things that give citizens legitimate reasons to be angry to see it hung high by their government. There’s ignorance on their side, but for a lot of supporter that ignorance doesn’t equate to racism and that ignorance is only fueled by these kind of prejudices against the south and southerners as a whole.

Didn’t the bass player recently release a music video about American vs Canadian healthcare with Rush in it? All over the place.

Again I can see you you could take it that way, but including himself in the list of people impacted my what happened does not equate to him victimizing himself.

August 21, 2015 on Dr. Dre: “I Apologize To The Women I’ve Hurt”

Of course the statement itself could be 100% bullshit, but again an apology statement in this scenario can only do so much to establish its own genuuity.

August 21, 2015 on Dr. Dre: “I Apologize To The Women I’ve Hurt”

I don’t know. I think the only real issue with the statement is just how little effect a statement can have in this instance. I believe he truly feels bad about what he did and I believe he’s grown a lot since then. I don’t agree that the use of “our” is disgusting and that he doesn’t give a shit. I see how that can be applied, but he can be interpreted differently also. He might have felt that he was including himself, not say “I’m a victim of this also”, but to say that it has truly had an impact on him that he has felt extended guilt and tried to make a change and that might be beneficial for the victims to hear. It might not. But it might not really help the victims to hear anything from Dre, but at this point he can only do what he can an know that is not a defense of him or a plea to feel bad for him in anyway. I just don’t think there is a perfect statement that people would not be broke down and tore apart, not that that’s some over the top punishment for his crimes.

It’s funny you say that because I remember wearing a Rancid shirt in my early high school years at a party and a girl in a Dead Kennedys shirt called me out for not knowing about “real” punk rock. I felt pretty lame.
