This answered nothing about Tidal and that is preciously where the backlash is coming from. If you are going to make a big righteous to-do claiming your new streaming service is going to do all these things to change the streaming game and help out smaller artists much more than the other providers, you have to an equally good job advertising the actual details that are going to make your service better for the artists or your going to look like self righteous tools that are not only grabbing at money (which isn't the most despicable thing), but pretending to be superheroes for the integrity of music and the cultivating of unknown struggling artists when really you are knowingly not doing that or your just attaching yourself to a message that you cannot really back up due lack of knowledge about the services or you're just a little full of crap. If Jay Z just wanted to release another spotify and acted like it was just way more baddass and it sounds way better and has cooler stuff on it then he probably wouldn't have gotten much backlash, but when you attach yourself to saint-like claims you gotta back it up or youre setting yourselves up for ridicule

May 19, 2015 on Steve Aoki Sued For Breaking Audience Member’s Neck During Concert
1. Yes, Eddie Vedder is cooler than Steve Aoki. 2. I do believe the raft does make it at least slightly less safe than jumping a completely prepared crowd that can see what is going on and who know how to brace themselves appropriately. 3. Aoki jumped with way more dangerous form . jumping cannonball style is a way better way to break someone's neck then belly flop style and in addition to that it also just seems like Vedder was disregarding his own safety more than the safety of his fans with the opposite being true in the Aoki scenario. 4. Possibly my weakest point. Stage diving, crowd surfing, mosh pits and such were way more common place back then. Concertgoers of the era grew an appropriate knowledge and comfort level of these shenanigans. My girlfriend still doesn't understand how even when he have a good place in the crowd and can see the stage that I am looking behind us half the show, BECAUSE IF THIS WERE 12 YEARS AGO YOUD BE GETTING COMBAT BOOTS AND DRUNK GIRL ASSES TO THE HEAD RIGHT NOW IF I WEREN'T LOOKING OUT FOR THE SAFTEY OF EVERYONE IN MY AREA AS THE DESIGNATED TALL GUY. 4. Eddie Vedder is cooler than Steve Aoki.

I mean the guy did make a completely non-objective statement. Or his he getting downvoted cause he and I are missing the intentional misuse of the term of objective? Irony these days, hard to keep up with.

The whole time I was thinking I know all these people are fine with aligning themselves as friends of Taylor, but I wonder if they are ALL aware that they are simultaneously declaring themselves as anti-Katy Perry by being in this particular video. I don't think Olivia Benson and Meredith Grey would have signed on to such a divisive project if they had been thoroughly filled in.

May 17, 2015 on Taylor Swift – “Bad Blood (Remix Feat. Kendrick Lamar)” Video
I got 1989 for my mom last year, it was sold out everywhere and it felt like for a pop album it was gonna be kind of be great for what it was at least. I was pretty disappointed when I finally sat through it. I was not expecting it to be some transcending, creative, game changing music I just expected that for it was it was going to be well done and noteworthy based on the response, but it was completely unremarkable to me and I liked Shake It Off. It wasn't a particularly bad album. Its popularity doesn't surprise me, but the impact it had seem to make on for lack of a better term the "stereogum audience" was kind of surprising to me after listening to it and I was giving it all the chance in the world going into it.

This...this doesn't sound live to me at all. I'm not sure I think this udio is a live performance, but as someone who did not hear this song in 1989 I'm pretty surprised this track came out before the 90s.

Thao & the Get Down Stay Down do an awesome live cover of Ludacris' "what's your fantasy" kind of reminded as the same vain as this cover except more effort and more musically badass. I think Miley's been improving her singing voice though.

May 17, 2015 on Watch A Raunchy Miley Cyrus & The Flaming Lips Debut “Tiger Dreams” At Adult Swim Upfront
It is not relevant to the actual story, but it is slightly relevant to a comment loosely related to the story. I think it must have been what they posted it on facebook with something like it might be time that we stop making fun of Miley or something. It made me think about how when she worked with The Flaming Lips the response was not really "wow I guess Miley is cooler than we thought she was she is working with cool and interesting artists", because of the way it was done it just made Wayne seem attention desperate and a little creepy, but now she is working with other cool and interesting artists, but it is done in a much more likeable way with seemingly more positive motivations so Miley and her new collaborators win, but it does not really make Wayne's attempts seem any more positive. Yes it was a little obnoxious that I made a comment that went a little bit in-depth in a direction that really made it a very loosely relevant tangent, I guess I just figured that that choice could have been assumed to intentional with idea of making fun of the whole idea of looking at every creative attempt Miley makes should be looked as reasons for or against making fun of her. The stupidity of the thought process described in my comment was having fun with the idea that every person especially the famous just have a "cool spectrum" for their lives and every event or choice they make slides them one way or the other on that spectrum. Plus I felt that comment at the very least was something that could have only been contributed by me at least in that particular fashion where as if I just wrote about my support or my non support for Miley, while I would be helping provide a meaningful statistic for the people keeping count of such things, I would be saying something that any other mind could have posted. This one was me, non-sensical, disorganized, and completely ineffective, but at least it puts a little bit of a different approach to the world out there. Not one that has to be adapted be anyone else, but just another perspective to be exposed to.

How blown is Wayne, he's not going to look like he knew something everyone else didn't and was an innovator for working with Miley; it's just going to be remembered that his relationship with Miley was particularly creepy and that his music collaborations will probably be go down as some of her lamest. Wayne was cool than he started begging to be cool and then he wasn't as cool anymore. :(

Come on now Jimmy falling on the floor is not him being less than genuine. It his him trying to get a laugh those are completely different points. And this is where we need to make some distinctions. Jimmy should not be hated for his enthusiasm for his guests and always being excited to be with the people he is with. Either he is a fan of the person outside the context of his show or he goes through the effort of becoming a fan of the people who come on his show and treats them with the similar levels of respect, enthusiasm, and inclusion and I don't really think that is a bad thing. Now the whole falling on the floor things reverts back to what Jimmy can actually be criticized for, which is that he is often just naturally not that funny and relies heavily on shtick and skit comedy to varying levels of success. Also the frequency and fashion in which he laughed during sketches on SNL was close to unforgivable. Many other people do what Jimmy does better as far as comedy goes, but I think he found himself a good place making his guests feel good and have fun and bringing a good amount of silliness to the mainstream audience that was ushered to him when he became the tonight show host.

It so weird to me when people who make such tradition based, faith based, moral based stances try to talk shit about political correctness. I get it politics is full of hypocrisy and it is easy to get everyone on board with saying yeah we shouldn't let political correctness dictate what we can and cant do, but its just weird to hear someone talk about how the words used in hip hop songs can destroy faith, family, and values and that we have to stop letting how what language and subject matter is considered politically correct dictate our political dialogue all in the same breath. And it happens all the time. Why don't they just say these are my values, I think we should make laws based on those values and I also wish that I did not have to be careful about saying insensitive things about groups of people that I am not accustomed enough with to know how to speak about without saying something ignorant or in an ignorant fashion. It is hard not to make mistakes and apologies are time consuming. I mean if I were this guy I would just keep redirecting everything back to how I am the first person to successfully separate Siamese twins conjoined at the head. I'd find a way back to it on every single issue. http://images.rapgenius.com/f0e8908b80e94e8c89da4df6c1362e72.500x240x25.gif

May 4, 2015 on Lana Del Rey’s Already Shot A Video For New Album Honeymoon
I don't know why everyone is going off about this sounding nothing like Vaseline is supposed to sound like. He clearly states in the beginning of the video that it is a new song that they just finished putting together that day. Give him some slack. Also it kind of sounds like he's trying to sing it on Rock Band. Sometimes you got to sound really weird and off key to get it to be perfectly on the blue line and moaning lines together makes it easier to stay consistent and such and that's a true assessment of playing rock band.
