I come out of commenting retirement for this? This must be how the Dismemberment Plan felt after Uncanney Valley got lukewarm-at-best reception.
I think this is my first “hidden due to low comment rating.” I love all of you.
Exactly, works so much better.
Look, you all may hate me for saying it and that’s fine. It’s not that I don’t support the guy in general or think this is a positive thing for him. I have been a huge Kanye fan since College Dropout and am very happy for him since he seems to be happier and more at peace, but that doesn’t make North West not a dumb name.
DEAL WITH IT DOT GIF
And I just realized I am one of those half clever idiots on Twitter.
Aside from the overall sound just not doing it for me, I think a major thing keeping me from enjoying this song is the fact that he and Kim Kardashian named their kid fucking North West. Maybe that makes me an asshole? Probably, but I don’t care. It’s a dumb joke of a name, and “Nori” isn’t much better. That’s the Japanese word for seaweed! I just can’t take this heartfelt song about his daughter seriously when he named his daughter a stupid punchline that a bunch of half clever idiots on Twitter probably joked about before they named her.
Is it okay if I always assumed Bjork produced her own music, but also don’t buy that Taylor Swift is a savvy businesswoman and that she has gotten overpraised a bit since 1989 came out?
Haven’t listened to this, but want to just stop by and say that the Aphex Twin EP is awesome, even though its not always the easiest listen. It’s just refreshing that this guy is putting out music consistently again.
Boooooooo I almost shit my pants in excitement for a second there.
That first photo looks like Tom Petty doing his best Conspiracy Keanu face
Yeah I feel the same way. I liked Paul’s keyboard work in Only One but hated pretty much everything else about it, and there’s pretty much nothing I like about this one. The sound on both just comes off as really bland and corny to me.
You know what? You’re right. I’m gonna come out of commenting retirement because I miss Videogum and I’ve stared deep into the abyss that is the world of pop culture blogs outside of the Gum and it is nothing short of a cesspool.
