Oh, that detail didn't fit into the "piece" but plenty of room for the perfectly irrelevant parenthetical "(I saw their set, but I don’t remember anything about it, possibly because I was preoccupied with the urgent need to get high before Cypress Hill came on.)"

If you're going to make a pointless list, the least you could do is write about it well.

This guy went and got himself some thumbs down, but he's 100% accurate. David Pogue has been a shameless slobberer on Apple for years, going to his stint with the New York Times. He'll without fail praise whatever new Apple thing is and poo-poo is competition. And it's a shite state of affairs, this ignorant mindset of "I'll take whatever cheap crap is easiest." " If you’re on-the-go, at what point does it matter how high-quality the audio is?" is the sentence of someone who has literally no idea what they're talking about. Finally, I did a little work for Pono (not on the product itself). But I ain't buying one. I'm sick of this fake shit.

This is a great read. Stereogum, you should try to do interviews that are good ones like this!

December 15, 2014 on Amanda Palmer Weighs In On Pomplamoose’s Controversial Tour Profits Essay
"“Band Practice Theme Song” is one of those runaway-train songs, steadily picking up steam until they’re playing so fast and furious that the only thing holding the song together is the sheer force of urgency. The drums are battered and bruised, the voices are triumphantly bleary and barely in sync, and the guitar eventually spirals into a simplistic little melody that’s both clumsy and completely brilliant. You can almost hear former solo artist Wall willing a band into existence around her, and it’s a good thing she did." This is pitiful writing. "Drums are battered and bruised?" "Voices are triumphantly bleary?" "Clumsy and completely brilliant?" "... willing a band into existence around her?" Not only is it weak and purple and painfully abstract, but even giving the benefit of the doubt the writer is doing their best to make some sort of point, none of these things are even really close to describing the song, which is just fine. The song is just fine. It's a fine poppy garage rock song played a billion times times for 75 years. This is the writing of someone who has no command of their art form, and no understanding of the art form their writing about.

Jesus H. where does the "evaluation" part start? It's fine to reference the backstory for some context, but give me a break with an in-depth analysis of the band's history. Do you even know what you're trying to do here?

Hey maybe I'm just on a hot streak tonight but do you sometimes or ever post an article where you don't introduce something about yourself in the opening sentence?
