Comments from raptor jesus

It IS hysterical! Even better is that I clicked your name to access your profile to find that comment to make sure I quoted it right. Oh the pleasures of a "working" Stereogum!

Just gotta say it's a happy day to have profiles, avatars and indented comments back! Keep up the good work 'Gum team. What? Oh right, David Crosby. Fuck that "mature aged" dude!

I encourage everyone to revisit the Viet Cong AOTW thread and notice how out of 140 comments exactly none cried out about their band name. There was a thread about how it was a dumb name, and talk of other bands with dumb names, but none of this wikipedia copy/pasta that's been happening since Oberlin. What you will find is a bunch of people talking about the music. You know, the reason why it was posted to a music blog in the first place. I guess they needed attention, I remember when it used to be music that did it. But then again time's have changed, man, who are we kidden'? Carry on with this faux outrage.

Oh man! Mitch got 100 upvotes for calling that line out. Amazing. But holy shit! Don-Don had some fucking HATERS in that thread, holy smokes. We may live in a fractured Stereogum world right now, but at least we respect our parents!

1000% Agree saturnian! Leave it to 2015 to shatter the trend. Unless albums just stop coming out after March...

March 4, 2015 on Watch Kanye West Do New Song “U Mad” With Vic Mensa And “C.R.E.A.M.” With Raekwon At Surprise London Show
Tough position to be in. Thankfully I have the ability to discern the difference between a band named Viet Cong and the actual savages that were also known as the Viet Cong (not to be confused with the band Savages). I think Robert Wohner makes a great point about taking a name's legacy and slapping it on some music, but who am I to comment on that? I've been riding the coattails of Jesus and raptors for 5 years now.

March 3, 2015 on Viet Cong Show Cancelled Because Of Offensive Band Name
Has anybody else listened to "What For?" yet? Because I have been and I don't want to say that I hate it, but I definitely don't like listening to it. What the fuck happened? His first two albums really had some good energy to them and "Everything in Return" definitely had some jams sprinkled into some less interesting songs. But "What For?" just strikes me as uninspired and tossed off. I've had it in my car for awhile yet I've ignored it, mostly in favor of Drake's album. SO maybe it's just that Drake album being THAT good or Toro's new album really isn't that good at all. Anybody feeling something I'm missing with "What For?" (With the way I'm feeling about it, gotta give props to that album title)

So jealous of everyone's avatars returning. Every so often it'll appear as though the videogum hosted avatars have returned, only to refresh the page and they return to broken links. Sad raptor. But I also agree with you on "another eternity." I definitely wasn't feeling it my first few spins, but the songs really start to stand out on repeat listens. Still not crazy for it, but it's still a great listen.

Heads up gang. If you head to modestmouse.com they have links to various pre-sales. I just picked up a pre-sale ticket at 11am CST, so these may be available now in other locales.

Going through that site I started thinking, "If MMJ picked a waterfall that's rated anything less than a 4 by world of waterfalls, they need to reconsider their album title." But those boys sure know how to pick 'em! 4.5 waterfall! Yowsahs!

March 3, 2015 on My Morning Jacket Announce New Album The Waterfall
OK crania, I just spent a half hour researching waterfalls (not complaining, very tranquil way to start the day!) I think I've found it. Looks to be Vernal Fall in Yosemite, which isn't too far from Stinson Beach. Since pictures aren't really posting, I'll give you this dope link to the world of waterfalls Web site (a site that exists and is quite badass for waterfall enthusiasts, I'm sure). http://www.world-of-waterfalls.com/yosemite-vernal-fall.html

February 28, 2015 on Shut Up, Dude: This Week’s Best And Worst Comments
"What’s the value of culture writing if everything is awesome all the time?" I like to think we're arguing levels of awesomeness. Everything is indeed awesome, but some things are simply more awesome than other slightly less awesome things. Kind of like I thought my avatar being hosted on videogum was totally awesome, but now it is very clearly less awesome. Some might even *gasp* say not awesome at all. Why does a world where everything is awesome so often feel like it's not living up to its claim?
