It’s also “hilarious” when someone condescendingly steps back from a debate to address their non-existent audience about “people” who just don’t understand the complicated things they are talking about yet while making the same argument as the uninformed “people” they are arguing with.
Criticize all day, every day. No one is required to give anyone an apology.
I don’t think it doesn’t allow him to be criticized, of course that is fair game, but it also doesn’t give someone else the right to demand an apology. It’s a two way street.
I have not heard of that. I took World and European history in high school and college. Plenty of it. Never heard of that. Sorry.
Not saying what you’re referring to isn’t relevant or true, but Kanye doesn’t need to issue an apology for some shit he said and meant. Free speech and shit. Don’t buy his records if you don’t like it, but this demanding an apology shit has to stop. He also says about 400 other egregious things on his album (Sweet and sour sauce, etc.), but hey, I guess that’s all cool.
Sky Ferreira #6. lmao. I’m out.
“Lyrical” genius? I think he’s as good as it gets in the producer’s seat, but I’d hardly call most of his lyrics anywhere near genius.
It was a generalization, which is a demanded-apology waiting to happen in this overly sensitive PC world, but it wasn’t really that offensive was it? Of all the generalizations, this one has always struck me as one of the least egregious “Jewish people are so successful and powerful. They also have delicious cuisine and are wonderfully articulate.” HOW DARE YOU SIR.
But hey, if you generalize in any way, the faux-outrage zombies will come out and get you, every time.
No thanks I’m good.
Stan? Seriously? Stan?
No Without Me, No My Name Is….., No The Real Slim Shady. I know it’s cool to not pick the biggest singles as the best, but um, those were all huge, huge singles, and quite frankly, for a reason. They were pretty great.
Also, a shout out for Superman and Criminal.
Settling arguments over Twitter is always smart and totally productive.
Holy lord I couldn’t possibly love this anymore. Nailed it.
That was almost as controversial as when MIA flipped the bird during the super bowl. MY EYES. MY EYES!!!!!
Colbert is the best.
Sorry, but I stopped reading like two sentences into the Chronic comparison. I’m enjoying the album so far though.
Wow. What the hell was that? That was like watching a high school talent show.
Also, Conan is a clearly broken man?!? Huh? Conan rules. This “performance” did not.
I know who he is from the Sky Ferreira and Solange singles, which were both absolutely fantastic, but none of his own stuff has really grabbed me yet. I’m still looking through it though, and this article helps a lot.
That being said, Test Icicles was such a steaming pile of shit in every single way.
That was totally whacked out, and I loved it.
Easily the best song on what was a disappointing, and dare I say, too weird album.
It’s not that Best Coast has a nice formula and is sticking to it. That’s fine. Lots of bands do that, and we like it.
It’s that they are almost literally writing the exact same song over and over again, and it’s a song that is already pretty basic and simple that gets a little boring after a listen or two. There are no surprises, no turns, and nothing deep or interesting enough to keep your attention. I can’t think of a band to better represent “If you’ve heard one of their songs, you’ve heard them all.”
I think she’s a beautiful singer and can write a very nice melody, but the lyrics and utter repetition and simplicity in all of their songs just doesn’t keep my interest very long.
That doesn’t mean the music isn’t allowed to be better just because VU was an influence. Television isn’t ranked above the Strokes either.
But anyway, it’s a list. Lists are silly.
She purty though.
Love Fleet Foxes and Pecknold, but man alive was this boring. Took all the energy out of a super energetic and lively song. No value added here.
And here I was coming to say it’s one of my favorite of their new songs I’ve heard. Doh.
