Wouldn't it be great if drunk Ben Affleck rant became a weekly segment on the show?

June 24, 2016 on Hear Okkervil River’s Theme Music For Bill Simmons’ HBO Talk Show Any Given Wednesday
I was so hoping Bill would be able to get the band back together and bring on Barnwell and Lowe as well as a host of others. Grantland was one of my favorite sites and losing it was devastating.

Not to mention we finally got Julian Casablancas covering the Velvet Underground which felt long overdue

I wonder if the carpet matches the drapes, as they also say.

I grew up in Broomfield meaning I've probably walked right by this dude at King Soopers at some in my life completely unaware that I was in the presence of the most badass old man that town has ever seen.

Was able to watch the Viceland stream of the strokes set, and holy shit. That has to be the best set they've played since they got back together from the hiatus in 2010. Not only did they finally actually have that intensity back that they always used to, but they sounded awesome. I mean the band always sounds great, even when they've seemed uninterested these past few years. But hearing what sounded like vintage 2002 Julian Casablancas was a fucking treat.

That's the problem with making a first impression that good, from there on out everyone's just gonna be let down. I think in 10 years people will look back and realize the critics were wrong about both Interpol and The Strokes and that both bands have made pretty consistently great music throughout their careers that's been unfairly written off because it didn't live up to the incredibly high standards of their debuts. Other bands too, but those are the two that immediately come to mind.

May 28, 2016 on The Strokes – “The Threat Of Joy”
I think you either missed her point or are choosing to ignore it. She's saying that with all of the huge problems our country is facing, including major corruption in our government, issues such as who has to use the men's room and who has to use the women's are being used to distract us. Obviously she's not saying the issues Trans people are facing aren't important, but that we should be forcing our politicians answer the questions about the mess that is the Middle East, the economy, and the corrupt bullshit they've pulled in their careers instead of whether they think a persons genitals or gender identity should determine what toilet they use...

Honestly I'll take Cialis and Mom Jeans over flower crowns and selfie sticks any day of the week

May 9, 2016 on Classic Rock Megafest Desert Trip Gets A Second Weekend
Yeah, this is a hell of an album. I've only listened twice though and haven't been able to bring myself to listen again yet. Been a rough year for me so far and listening to this brings it all back up. Honestly though I think that tells me all I need to know about how powerful this shit is. AOTY race looks to be over and it's only May. Well done boys

It's actually happened a few times and the last time he did at least nod at me as he took the last string cheese from my fridge

May 6, 2016 on Radiohead – “Daydreaming” Video (Dir. Paul Thomas Anderson)
Saying French Montana is "not the worst" is probably being a bit generous. There's a strong possibility he's the actual worst. Who else could manage to put out a song with a Kanye and Nas feature and have it be this bland and forgettable? I can't even remember if I just listened to it

May 3, 2016 on Radiohead – “Burn The Witch” Video
I was getting my haircut when the news came on the radio and from there out the modern alternative pop whatever bullshit station switched over to all Prince. Just goes to show how deep the love runs for the guy. My fucking hair stylist who I only see every three or four months cause I'm a lazy fuck even mentioned that he remembered I was born in Minneapolis and asked if my family is gonna be really bummed out about this. Damn right they are

And you're forgetting fucking Dylan. 2016 is coming and we need to build a wall around these people because this cold blooded killing machine of a year is coming after everyone. Only one I'm not worried about is Iggy cause that it'd make too much sense for this year to take him from us too, and nothing about Iggy Pop makes sense.

Pretend? I don't know who you hang around but I don't really know anyone who takes their music seriously that wasn't already a Bowie or Prince fan long ago, or at least respected the originality and talent they had and all the ideas and trends that they started. I get what you're saying about people acting like they cared about a musician or celebrity of any kind right after they die, but you're definitely underestimating the impact and influence Bowie and Prince had on so many of us.

Also, as ashamed as I am to admit it, I attended my fair share of pop-punk shows in high school and this kind of thing isn't out of the ordinary at all. People hop on stage all the time to dive off, and if you don't do it quick and just stand there too long you can expect a shove (if you're lucky) or a whack in the back from a guitar (if you aren't) to get your ass back where it belongs
