cut copy is gonna play twice? that’d be fun or funny or both.
“I dun raped the game young, you could call it statutory.” -Mr. Kanye West
Very weakly delivered.
Everyone knows Radiohead’s “Life in a Glass House” was the decade’s best track.
How mad? Scale of 1-10, 1 being “Oops I downloaded a bad live recording of ‘Wash the Day Away’!” and 10 being “Miley Cyrus singing on Ryan Seacrest’s radio show a purposely bad cover of ‘Staring at the Sun’ to spite Tunde, Dave, and Kyp because they wouldn’t let her meet them backstage at the Grammy’s”.
Thank God for a sliver of Animal Collective news. I feel like there hasn’t been an Animal Collective post on this (500) Days of Stereogum blog for maybe 3 weeks. Maybe 2. I don’t know. I’m just glad to see a familiar name in bold blue capitalized type.
I’mmmmmm sooooooo-ber. (BOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!)
panda bear + george clooney vs. department of eagles + brad pitt. who wins in a dirt bike race?
“Swine Flu” fits in perfectly for a “Black Cab” parody. “And I’ve heard all the stories about the swine flu and the way they spread. But if you come down with it, you may come back dead.”
didn’t the security know that she was NME’s coolest person of 2008?
Actually Sofia Coppola is intensely jealous of her husband. How do I know? She tried paying me money to write a bad comment about their Music Hall of Williamsburg show. And I said, “No, Mrs. Coppola! I will not! You may have been in control of everything on the set of Godfather 3, but I, Mrs. Coppola, I am not the set of Godfather 3 and you don’t control me!!!!”
Hey guys. Did you remember to renew your domain name? I think Fox Searchlight might have snatched up your Stereogum.com domain name and made it into their official (500) Days of Summer page. Hah! Just kittens, guys. Get money, get paid.
I would have to politely disagree. Seeing this schedule, I felt immediately conflicted. I don’t think it’s just the head-to-head conflicts presenting problems here. It’s things like the second half of Deerhunter/Lou Reed/Snoop bleeding into the first third of MSTRKRFT’s set. Diplo’s set conflicting with The Band Formerly Known as just AnCo. Fleet Foxes bleeding into a potentially killer A-Trak set. I don’t know. Seems like a lot of conflicts, but maybe it’s just like this every year. I’m a n00B b00B.
i’m not a fan of phish but i was watching them and sometime in the middle of their set a guy shat his pants and skittered away. i thought it was interesting if nothing else.
This. Is. Life.
Also, I think this is a highly important issue that needs to be discussed level-headedly and with as much respect for contrasting opinions as possible.
ANCO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! That is all.
I feel like I’m a beacon of stupidity/irrational reactions wherever I go, not to mention I’m very much unfamiliar with the substantial core Sonic Youth discography, but even I don’t mind Kim Gordon’s “other side of the coin” opinion. Wish it wasn’t as accusatory as it sounds and I don’t particularly agree with it (mainly because she’s completely ignoring Radiohead’s preface that the pay-what-you-want model was an experiment of sorts), but it’s not the worst thing in the world.
In my defense, reading is both very difficult and not required to enjoy Wavves.
I don’t know what you’re saying here. It sounds mad cryptic. But I visited your blog and it’s cool, so I’ll just agree with you.
The television mini-series starring James Fallon?
One of the great mysteries of the world for me is why anyone would ever attend a rap concert.
So last year. Or two years ago. What’s going on with Wavves? Is he putting out a remix album? “I’m soooooooooo-ber (woooooooooooooahhh)!”
I agree. I hate this trend. Love 2009 as a year in music, but in the context of this annoying “< ", ">“, and “=” trend, I’ll be glad when 2009 is over (or whenever Pitchfork puts out their Top 50 year-end list).
I hope one day we can attend the same large-venue music festival 2gether where AnCo headlines one night and Dirty Ps another night and the Grizzly Brothers another night.
