no, trump inherited great wealth, c'mon. it has been well-documented that if he had taken his inheritance, and simply invested it in an indexed fund, he'd be vastly wealthier today than he's ended up - what with all of his Russian debt, and Deutsche Banke being the lone legitimate lending institution willing to lend him money (due to their own Russian money-laundering ventures). gene simmons is just an asshole because literally noone can stop him from being an asshole.

August 19, 2017 on Gene Simmons To Critics Of His Devil Horns Trademark Attempt: “Bitch, I Can Do Anything I Want”
oooh, this is the one from that live post from a few months ago where 'haunted graffiti 13' was teased. sounds like a Psychedelic Furs / Cure mashup. all 3 of these new tracks are really great so far....

oh dear lizard, these guys are good singers, and they can't get it together to do a decent cover of this song? why?!? someone should do a good version of this song, it's kind of unique in their catalog. they always play it note for note as it is on the album, with no jam or elaboration. at least to my (limited since about NYE '96) knowledge....it's the only Phish song that could also have been a Cure song, IMO

yeah, Pink's need to just endlessly pity himself in public is part of what makes him so hard to take at times. and he wants for people to pity donald trump's dumb ass too? the guy has plenty of dumbshit foaming at the mouth lunatics who love him like a deity. people don't think "he can't do anything right" because they resent his "success", we're just all watching him do everything wrong. c'mon man. stop whining! and anyone who goes around saying that people resent success just for the sake of resenting success is just being a dick. its a shame, 'Time to Live' is one of the best tracks yet this year, to my ears. but ugh, what an insufferable wanker.

a fun read, thanks for this! I had always assumed that the creation of this album involved them watching an inordinate amount of Monty Python, but no, turns out they were actually staring at golden eels and living by the Jersey shore. if only they had also been enrolled in amateur pirate lessons as well...

BARC is 0% at fault here. they didn't say they don't accept or adopt abused dogs, they said if they were adopting her an abused dog they would have told her all about it up & down. BARC is good people, and no, they should not "fuck off".

if right-wing people who don't want women to be full and free citizens want to call themselves "pro-life", there's not much we can do about that. but at the very least, can we stop acting as their unwitting propaganda agents and just refuse to use the term ourselves? those of us who do, in fact, want women to be free and equal citizens, that is. how "pro-life" is letting a fetus develop in a Fallopian tube until it ruptures, then refusing hospital treatment to the would-be mother? not very. but hey, let her die, there might be a boy in there! etc etc, ad-infinitum. these folks at anti-choice. they don't like or value "life" any more than anyone else. in fact, they often value it less, especially if it's a woman's 'life'.

ugghh, ok i guess i'll give this a listen but angry comment first!! am I the only person who was wicked underwhelmed by 'the big big beat'? really think that track blows. like, people were over-crediting the track because they just couldn't accept how awful she is, or something like that? can just never be a fan again. everyone go give Vince Staples your $$.

reverse reverb, for mbv. they used samplers, but not much in the way of delay. massive amounts of reverse reverb. it's wacky to think how the average mbv track has about a tenth of the number of layered guitar tracks that the average smiths song did...

there's an intersection of American culture in general and American Christianity that he's using to give himself big ups with. he hears some terrible lyrics (and assumes she even wrote them, which...) and his brain starts to formulate a slam but then he thinks that just straight lambasting somebody is wrong, and the mote in his own eye, etc. and then he goes straight to times he was persecuted for mentioning his religion, and realizes he can attempt a takedown that doesn't involve direct accusations, but instead relies on Americans' cultural tendency to give automatic points to people for playing against type. and he just highlights that hey, when Katy Perry tries to play against type for points, she always gets it wrong - she's homophobic or weirdly racist, and hey motherfuckers, I play against type all the time as a left-wing conceptual musician who talks about religion positively with great frequency, and I never really do take-downs, so I'm even playing against type now! praise jeezus.

I certainly don't have a problem with Mike owning a gun, he's a black man in the South who says controversial things, makes decent money, runs businesses, etc. It would probably be kinda crazy for him not to be armed. I just think it's alarming when anyone who isn't a raving nut supports the NRA, because they are such a disgusting organization, and one specifically born out of white people's irrational fears of black people.

June 5, 2017 on Killer Mike Defends Bill Maher, Chance The Rapper Asks HBO To Cancel Him
oh please. I don't have much use for Sam Harris, he's a damn idiot. Hitchens has been eloquent about many things at times, while he was still with us, but Islam was never one of them. Bill Nye holds no views akin to Maher's thinly-veiled hatred. and Dawkins is much more nuanced (and just a lot smarter in the first place) than Maher. his sexism is overt, obvious, and ever-present. trans-phobic? yup. he said straight up that the reason the Dems lost the presidency in 2016 was because "their highest priority was to force me to pee next to man in a dress". I "so bravely hurled" these terms because they apply, and I'm sick of his divisive bullshit, and the divisive bullshit of his knee-jerk defenders. sick of the lot of you. I mention this here because I'm not regularly invited on to Real Time to debate the guy, but if I was, I'd tell him I'm an atheist who used to be a real fan of his, and had to stop because his comments made me nauseous just a few too many times.

benadryl is diphenhydramine, in the US at least. it's the 'pm' in OTC pain/sleep meds; i.e. advil PM, tylenol PM, unisom, etc. pseudoephedrine has definitely been used in cold /sinus medications, but it's separate from benadryl.

and fuck Bill Maher. he's a racist, a sexist, an Islamaphobe, trans-phobic, and generally mentally stuck in about 1998 or so. the guy just can't do a consistently good show anymore.

man, I was watching the episode of 'Problematic' with Moshe Kasher that had Killer Mike on a few nights ago, and he was talking about how great the NRA is, and how he's a member, and liberals should shut up about guns, and how he thinks the NRA believes in "freedom", and it was just surreal. the NRA is one of the most paranoid, right-wing, conspiracy-theory-pushing organizations in the country. they are full to the gills with white supremecists, and are generally fine with defending white folks' gun ownership, but not so much for people who aren't white. it was a mass spewing of mass ignorance from Mike. really disappointing. similarly to how I felt about Danzig being somehow the kind of person who could be convinced that Planned Parenthood was in fact "selling baby parts", watching KM get all pro-NRA and apparently pro-white people using the N word?? is disappointing. I don't mind of rock & rap starts aren't fully briefed on every matter all the time, but when I realize they are gullible and easy to fool, it really makes me value their content less than before.

June 2, 2017 on Remember When Arcade Fire Were Good?
hehe, mraaaow! I'm weird, I like 'the Suburbs' best of all Arcade Fire albums, haven't listened to these new tracks yet, but I'm about to go to my rehearsal space and test them out on a beefy PA, will report back. I think 'Funeral' has its many moments, but there's some stuff on there I never listen to. 'Neon Bible' is similar for me anyway, some great songs, some ignorable stuff. 'the Suburbs' to me is just an embodiment of the art of making the writing of really tricky and difficult songs sound effortless. 'Reflecktor', for me was just the opposite. sounds so forced and queasy. and the rhyme of 'connector' and 'reflector' is just endlessly lame. that album is just full of duds to my (admittedly damaged) ears. I saw a live broadcast of a show they were playing in New Orleans a few months back, ugh. it was awful. everything was like 10 bpm slower than it should have been, they all looked like they had been eating nothing but tater tots and glue for like 2 weeks. I've seen them live twice and both times were just phenomenal. we'll see....

I'm confused, so please forgive me if I'm off-base here, but isn't Theresa May virulently anti-immigration? and if so, is he mad at her for being not anti-immigration enough, or for for being anti? I read at least that part of the statement as critical of her...but the rest of it doesn't read as particularly thoughtful, thus my confusion. any assistance would be greatly appreciated, mraow
