Comments from scruffy

I dismissed Wavves a few years ago based solely on their relationship with Best Coast, who I dismissed solely on the relationship that various indie websites had with Bethany Cosentino’s cat. Since then, I’ve gotten over both those grudges, and have enjoyed delving into Wavves’ back catalog. I’m pretty excited about V. I’m going to wait to listen to this though, because Fuck Apple Music.

I felt the same way until I got to drive down I-5 toward Portland on a ferociously sunny day with it blaring, just screaming at the sky and sweating buckets. My life jacket was in the passenger seat, no joke.

Also, I apparently need to frequent better bars.

Despite not being around all week (or much at all the past few…months), I made Scott LOL today and inthedeadofknight deemed me his personal Gummer of the Summer. I’m celebrating with a Scruffloma.

The Scruffloma:
-Pour 2oz of a decent tequila (I prefer to use a nice reposado, but not too nice) into that margarita glass you stole from Chiles that one time.
-Add fresh grapefruit and lime juice (I juice mine ahead of time using a 2 grapefruit to 1 lime ratio) until the glass is about ¾ full.
-Top of with the soda/sparkling water of your choice.
-Stir lightly with a chopstick and sigh heavily.
-Situate yourself outside, with the sun to your back (this will be important later).
-Repeat the above steps while screaming along to the chorus of “West Coast” (by FIDLAR, you goddamn heathens) until you barf.
-If you manage to hit your shadow, you win! What’s that? We were playing a game this whole time? Damn straight we were playing a game. It’s always a game, and Scruffy always wins.

Scruffy the baptizer appeared in the wilderness, proclaiming a band full of scuzzy guitars and hooky sing-along choruses. And people from the whole Spotify countryside and all the people of Stereogum were going out to him, and were baptized by him in the river FIDLAR, confessing their sins. 6 Now Scruffy was clothed in a life jacket, with pants of white leather across his loins, and he drank beer and ate no mint. He proclaimed, “The band who’s more powerful than I is coming after me with a new album; I am not worthy to stoop down and untie the thong of their sandals. I have baptized you with water; but they will baptize you with the 40 oz of the Holy Spirit.” And all of the people of Stereogum laughed at the word “thong.”

Obviously Ye doesn’t realize how wet and miserable it’s about to get in the Northwest. If he was more aware of regional weather patters, we would have gotten Swish a long time ago. No matter, I’m going to fire up the grill and party in the backyard when it drops anyway. You can avoid hypothermia when you’re dead.

Apparently my frequent sermonizing for FIDLAR has been lost on some.

Deafheaven has consumed me all week. “Brought to the Water” is not my number one. It is the entirety of my musical existence right now. No, not just musically. My entire existence. Holistically.

Also, fuck fashion rules. I’ll wear white pants whenever I please, thank you very much. Tight white leather pants, at that. I’m going for Dong of the Winter.

I’d hump it. For laughs, of course.

This is fucking spectacular. But then, I’m a sucker for church bells.

I’m glad someone asked him this. Nothing else matters now.

August 17, 2015 on Rick Perry Finally Breaks His Legendary Silence About Metallica

The fact that he’s Jewish and being asked to comment on an Israeli (but not specifically Jewish) issue makes me assume that whoever is asking just doesn’t have a great grasp on the fact that Israel does not represent all those of the Jewish faith, and vice versa. It’s more ignorance than anti-Semitic. Still shitty.

My levels of SNL excitement each season:
“Hooray! It’s almost here!”
“Oh no. It’s here and it’s bad.”
“It’s over. I’m sad.

Glad he donned proper protection. A tube sock just isn’t going to cut it for beekiping.
