I missed that. NIce work. +14/-3. Not bad but should have won this week.
Hence the positive score. If someone would have made a Jack White/Juggalo dildo meme you would have needed some crazy advanced math to figure your score.
Seems like we broke the up vote/down vote code this week. Dildo jokes = good. Halfassed memes = bad.
It means it is really hard to make a dildo joke that people don’t like. I’m struggling to think of what kind of comment would garner a lot of down votes. I’m sure _someone will figure it out.
People who live with glass dildos shouldn’t throw Kid Rocks.
Dude, this happens all the time. I genuinely like so called “difficult” or abrasive music. There are bands featured here all the time that I check out and find incredibly boring or unlistenable. Future Islands, Bon Iver, Fleet Foxes, and Vampire Weekend are just a few bands that come to mind.
Sometimes the music press wets their pants over a band and they just don’t do it for me. It happens. I come to the defense of bands like Death Grips or Swans because these are bands that I actually enjoy listening to. Most people like to have their opinion validated every once in a while and I am no different. There is nothing wrong with you if you don’t like Swans or Vampire Weekend. Hell, I don’t even like Daft Punk. Talk about feeling left out.
Well said. I have compared death grips to the sex pistols myself here. I hope they stay broken up. My favorite band break up ever is Big Black. I love that they did their thing and broke up on their own terms. (Yes, I know they played the touch & go anniversary, that was justified). Anyway, glad you got to see them and can appreciate them for what they were. That is what music is all about.
And to clarify, I love death grips. I wish more bands would come along and fuck with people they way they did. I understand why a lot of people didn’t like them but that was part of the point. There are plenty of bands giving people exactly what they want. Breaking up was the only way to go.
