yeah, it should be noted that Gene Simmons is disgusting for a plethora of other reasons as well...

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....

May 30, 2017 on “She Blow That Dick Like A Cello” Makes No Sense, And Lil Yachty Is Sorry
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

May 23, 2017 on Morrissey Releases Statement About Manchester Arena Attack
yeah, it's not my personal favorite album of the aughts, but I don't see what really competes with Boxer for 'best of the aughts'. 'is this it?' can't keep holding that title much longer...making delusion, obsession and self-loathing so catchy is like wicked not easy. there is a bit of filler, IMO, but so many truly great songs! grrr, that fuzz bass tone that kicks off 'apartment story' is one of my favorite sounds of all time. it is pretty amazing how 'fake empire' somehow explicitly narrates and bookends the beginnings & ends of the Obama years.

it really is such a bummer that Morrissey is such a doofus now. this lady is a virulent racist and anti-semite. no configuration of 'European populism' makes what she says and espouses OK. why isn't he asking about whatever she had for dinner and how it died and shit?

What is he talking about? Because there are kids, sex just shouldn't be a topic, ever? Raffi has gon so far into the children's entertainment world that he's infantalized himself! "Pornographers" is a dangerous term to "normalize"? Even most kids be rolling their eyes at this silly prudishness...

April 17, 2017 on Here’s Everything We Know About The Danny Brown + Angel Olsen Collab
yeah I had to have one out at 34 and the other at 35 for the same reasons. I literally almost died from this. had a quack dentist when younger who didn't believe in removing wisdom teeth, then had no dental ins. for many years. eventually got an infection that made my neck and jaw swell up, dragged myself to the emergency room, doctors were like "wTFFF?!!!??", stopping by to look at my face and exlclaim all kinds of amazement. they guy who pulled the 1st one told me i was about half a day away from death. he also told me that my dentist way back when could have damn well told from x-rays that my wisdom teeth would be impacted and had them pulled. before my follow-up treatment a week later a dude on Long Island died from one of these infections, and when the doc saw me again the first thing he said was "did you hear about that guy? that was gonna be you!"

April 16, 2017 on Here’s Everything We Know About The Danny Brown + Angel Olsen Collab
hehe, I saw one of those shows with 'disposable heroes of hip-hopracy' as the openers (with primus middling), it was interesting...primus into U2 is, let's say, jarring. though at the time, like spring 92 I think, I would have taken any opportunity to see any of those acts...DHoH sounded like they were just performing over a lot of pre-recorded stuff. primus was oddly murky and moody. U2 were, uh, 1992-era U2. great! but, slightly worrisome
