"deranged bill cosby"… that's a bit redundant

April 15, 2015 on Steve Albini Weighs In On Tidal Debate
First and foremost, obligatory fuck off TMZ and stop posting their videos, Stereogum. This isn't even "news." I can't even remember the last time I thought about REO Speedwagon, or heard one of their songs. I might have never heard any of their songs? The only song I can name is "Take It On The Run," and the only reason is it's referenced in this fucking article. Gawker can fuck right off as well. Their network of websites are generally a lot of sensationalist bullshit and click bait, combined with this weird, vaguely condescending sarcasm that makes me think its general audience are the type of people who ride bicycles on pedestrian sidewalks and act like you're the asshole for complaining because they're helping save the environment. That last part might not make sense but those people can go to hell too while I'm at it. TL;DR Fuck TMZ. Fuck Gawker. Fuck cyclists who disobey traffic laws and run me over.

April 14, 2015 on This Is The Best REO Speedwagon Video In 30 Years
"I know you put in the hours to keep me in sunglasses, I know" has always been one of my favorites. And as others have said, pretty much all of "All the Wine," but I'm particularly fond of: "I carry the dollhouse safe on my shoulders Through the black city, nightlights are on in the corners And everyone's sleeping upstairs All safe and sound"

This is definitely still my favorite album by the National, though I don't think they've made a bad record since this one either. If you haven't drunkenly yelled along with friends to "Abel" you should do yourself a favor and get on that.

FYI Taylor Swift copyrighted "The Week In Rap" and Tom actually got a cease and desist from her legal team.

That makes a lot of sense, and those people sound insufferable. It sounds like people who scoff and say "I don't even OWN a television" but watch Netflix on their laptop. And you're right, hip hop encompasses the entire culture while rap is strictly the music. The terms are sort of a "all squares are rectangles but not all rectangles are squares sort of thing." So saying you don't listen to rap, only hip-hop is a bunch of nonsense.

Honest question Tom, why do you not like the term hip-hop? I've always felt it was really awkward reading the phrase "rap productions" or "rap instrumentals" and I've always wondered why it seemed like you specifically avoided using hip-hop.

This Must Be The Place is arguably the greatest love song ever written, and definitely one of the most beautiful songs of all time. I think Sam Beam is great at covers (I still prefer his version of Such Great Heights to the the Postal Service's), so I'm very excited to hear what they do with it.

April 3, 2015 on Iron & Wine And Ben Bridwell Announce Covers Album Sing Into My Mouth
I remember hearing "Beauty & A Beat" while drunk at a bar one night and being surprised it was Bieber because I actually kinda liked it. Decent melody/hook. Still don't like everything else he's done though.

April 2, 2015 on The Week In Pop: Roast Aside, Justin Bieber Might Secretly Be On The Right Track
I agree with everything you say. I just want to add how I like (hate) how cops focus on "Song for Assata" for all the wrong reasons, yet completely ignore "The Light" off the same album, which is a very straightforward and genuine song about respecting women, not to mention the fact that the beat is just ridiculously amazing. Like fucking hell Common is probably the last rapper to take issue with even through the lens of the bullshit stereotype they probably have of rap.

Maybe because I have a general disdain for people taking themselves very seriously and acting self righteous in the blog world/music journalism, but I honestly enjoy how much Ariel Pink pisses people off. I won't defend him, dude is definitely a douchebag, but I do think the guy is straight up trolling a lot of the time, and people just play right into it, which I want to think is sort of his point? If it isn't his point, I like the way it kind of highlights some of the more obnoxious things about music journalism and comment sections. Granted, it's done by being equally obnoxious, but I still find it interesting.

Fuck this shit. Fuck them using "The National Anthem." Is Radiohead on board with this whole thing? Everything about it screams the exact bullshit that caused them to pull all their stuff from Spotify in the first place. I suddenly have less respect for everyone on that stage.
