“A Million Things You Can Eat That Aren’t Cheese”
(that little spitball o’ bile is meant for “mancat”, by the way. kanye’s album ISN’T shit. it’s fine! clearly lots of money was spent on it and it’s a very high quality product. but it’s not #1 best album of the year material. it just isn’t. so, uh, i guess this is where people downvote me some more. HAPPY HOLIDAYS! :-D )
Oh, world. You earth people and your Kanye obsession. It’s so quaint. That said, this list isn’t total suckballz. Of all the ones I’ve suffered through so far this month, this one had me gagging the least. But there was gagging, to be sure.
Soof gives good spectacle.
Wow, she sounds horrible. (and I’m saying that as a tireless /\/\/\Y/\ apologist.) The Specials sound great, though. Shame she couldn’t pull it off.
Maybe there’s no irony in Steve Albini bemoaning the indie cred of Sonic Youth in the pages of GQ. Maybe not, but LOL anyway. Have a Coke and a smile, Stevie.
What about Joan Jett? I mean, she’s no LL Cool J, but…
incidents = instances. BAH, stupid fingers not type right.
I’m loving this album, and feeling a bit spoiled because I’m one of those weirdos who also really liked the “All Delighted People” e.p., though I feel kind of silly calling it an e.p. when you could fit at least a couple of full-length Weezer albums into the length of it. My faves thus far are Now That I’m Older and I Want To Be Well, though the whole album is working for me. The bleeps and bloops at times feel like clutter, and at other times they feel like harmless ornamentation, and at other times still they punctuate the mood of the song perfectly. At worst, I pay little mind to the electronic frills on this album – they’re pretty inobtrustive to me, for the most part. My least favorite tracks thus far are “Get Real Get Right” (which I still like; it’s just a hard song to snuggle up to) and the title track, which sounds to me like an Arcade Fire song…which is great if I’m listening to an Arcade Fire album. The last song, my god – it’s an amusement park. The few incidents in which I’ve had enough time to listen to the whole song in one sitting, I feel as though this one song could well have been an e.p. in and of itself. It’s rare to pull off a track this long that remains entertaining throughout, but this one pulls it off. It’s not to say that “Impossible Soul” couldn’t use a haircut, but it’s just fine as its shaggy self.
Will this guy just give it a rest and go into reality television already? Celebrity Rehab, Apprentice, RuPaul’s Drag School, I don’t care – just get off the stage if you can’t hold your poison, shit.
