But how does he feel about brunch or Madonna or whether male critics of Madonna are inherently sexist or if Neil Young hates David Crosby or vice versa or if Sun Kil Moon’s latest single is misogynistic, heterosexist, neither or both?

Get with it, Carney. Time to step it up.

What is with critics and Drukqs?

That is easily top-3, behind SAW 2 and ahead of SAW 1.

Well, her portrayal of Kozelek as essentially railing against of the current state of music where older white men are de-emphasized does rather obliquely suggest it (hip hop).

Why is it such a “thought crime” to label vast swaths of any kind of cultural phenomena valueless and beneath them if that is how they honestly feel about it?

And telling someone to “cry me a river” is literally instructing them to over-salinate our fresh water supply. When you consider how drought-stricken the western half of the US is right now, that is deeply irresponsible and counterproductive.

Anyone who still thinks this has anything specifically to do with The War On Drugs is greatly impaired by literal mindedness.

The leader of a band named “Perfect Pussy” is publicly condemning someone for using the term “suck my cock”?

You can’t make this stuff up.

Also, for someone who seems to be relentlessly politically correct, her commentary comes off as pretty tauntingly ageist.

There will be a day, sooner than she might think, when her pussy ain’t so perfect anymore, and it, too, will be drowned out by the meowing of other, more perfect, ones from the other side of a festival.

Perhaps we’re not so different after all, Cerebus.

The King of Limbs is better than In Rainbows.

If that insults you then you should be more confident in the things you love and the opinions you have of them.

Why does someone get offended by an opinion that differs from “the canon?” To be emotionally invested in the consensus opinion? Who cares? In Rainbows can take it.

FWIW to you and Cerebus,

I have been a huge fan of Radiohead since ’95. I was at that now-mythical pre-OKComputer Irving Plaza show, saw them in Barcelona debuting Kid A material months before that album came out, went two nights in a row on the Amnesiac tour, drove 150 miles to go to a show on the HttT tour, etc. and so fandom forth.

In Rainbows just does not do as much for me as it clearly does for you or just about every other RH album does for me. I like it fine; more than most things, in fact; but it just isn’t my favorite of theirs. I find it to be a little boring as compared to the rest of their work.

BTW: Other things I am not a fan of which might piss you off: Mozart, Kanye, Guardians of the Galaxy, The Office (British and American) and Community.
