Comments from scruffy

I pretty much just use artist bios to figure out where people are from. I'm not sure that I would notice negativity or "shadiness," just the "born in..." "moved to..." and "is currently based in..." sections.

Something that has always baffled me about the Spotify curated playlists is how they seem to just throw Chris Brown all over everything.

Great. Now I get to drink a flat white while listening to Matt White.

Was anyone else a little put-off by the overt sexuality of this? The conceit is cool, but the amount of skin and visual innuendos seemed like a little much.

Well, Stereogum, that time of year is upon us. The time of year where I start commenting less and less, and then essentially disappear till sometime in the fall. I know you're thinking to yourself, "Why, Scruffy, why? Why must you leave us?" The answer is simple: When it's nice out, Scruffy doesn't internet.

Glad you threw that A$AP track up there, Tom. The first time I listened to it, I thought it was the dad-rap nightmare you mentioned and shut it off after about a minute. I gave it another listen based on your write-up so I could confirm that you're wrong, and now I'm on my 3rd straight listen. It's sort of magical.

You and Meat don't make me uncomfortable. You don't always make me laugh, but I either enjoy what you have to say or ignore it easily. It's the people that take this stuff super seriously and get really mean about it. And I'd agree, those subjects you listed are touchy. I do feel like I've found the line on Kanye jokes that everyone can enjoy, which is one of the crowning achievements of my life. Now Lana Del Rey, that's a whole different story...

As someone who spent their morning reading Seymour Hersh's expose and then all of the media backlash, I'm shocked that this is actually the most uncomfortable corner of the internet I've been in today.

Great writeup, interesting take on the song. I don't really do a lot of thinking about them anymore, but I get "Skin of My Yellow Country Teeth" stuck in my head on almost a weekly basis.

I don't mind dissent, but I do mind the way you throw everyone here into the same boat and insist that we're all zombies that can't think for themselves and only eat up whatever is popular. Feel free to say "I don't like this, and this is why," but mean-spirited attacks on the writers and commenters are generally frowned on here.

I propose a yearly special issue of People that has scratch & sniffs for different celebrities. This will: a) Allow us to make informed decisions on celebrity fragrances b) Allow us to utilize the underutilized function that is scratch & sniff c) Allow us to be super creepy without actually feeling like we're being THAT creepy (it's in a magazine, for Chrissakes!)

I was on vacation for the first half of the week and Scruffy vacations generally don't involve wi-fi. I missed out on commenting on the Separation Sunday anniversary post, so let me just say this: Separation Sunday is my favorite album. I listen to it all the damn time.

Scruffygum. Follow me. I'm working on a pool party playlist. The kind of pool party where fistfights break out, and everyone ends up pregnant or with swimmer's ear.

I thought about you on Tuesday, Bloc. My local brewery is starting to brew sours, and I began the process of brewing mead with various things I foraged from the woods.
