Earth Children! What is a song that the masses consume? I am told my viral rating must be increased in conjunction with the release of my impending film.

Love the weird sensation in my brain when looking at the album art and thinking about the album title.

For my tastes, one of the most underrated bands of the 00s.

That’s kinda what I’m saying? At least in terms of artists we like, I don’t think increased exposure is causing people to cull them from their playlists, unless they do something particularly egregious and harmful. Realizing that even our favs have shitty opinions is useful for cracking the internet echo chamber a little bit.

July 14, 2015 on Chuck D Defends Bill Cosby, Accuses Marvin Gaye Of Pedophilia

Naw, it’s great, it’s forcing fans to understand that you don’t have to like 100% of an artist. Obviously lines differ; i’m sure serial rape is way past the line for most of us. But “shitty opinions” is something that is useful to get used to.

I look forward to Corey Taylor’s next edgy video where he takes One Direction down a peg because those guys don’t even play real instruments!!!!!

July 8, 2015 on Slipknot Frontman Has A Message For Kanye West

I’d tell you what I’d do if McCartney claimed to be the world’s greatest rapper

I’d say “that’s great man, I’m glad you’re positive and I know you’re not specifically knocking on Kendrick’s door and calling him trash because I know music is subjective and there is no canon and we can all just like what we like”

I sure as hell wouldn’t produce a monologue video

(((((also the arrogance is like an intrinsic part of what makes kanye’s music good; it’s the emotional catharsis of all his music, it goes hand in hand with all the self-loathing and anger in his songs, suggesting that the people who have the biggest problem with his ego either don’t really listen to him closely or don’t listen to music for that aspect)))))

it’s not like we’re doing political activism here man

July 8, 2015 on Slipknot Frontman Has A Message For Kanye West

I will always be amazed at the amount of people who feel the need to get out the loudspeaker because they have observed a guy that likes himself more than they think he should

July 7, 2015 on Slipknot Frontman Has A Message For Kanye West

I think a lot of it had to do with people starting to become suspicious of this indie wave and hipsters. It’s commonplace now to rag on hipsters but I remember reading people talking about Sufjan like, “this guy’s wimpy music and fake name are obnoxious.” It also came out the same year as Late Registration, which it beat on Pitchfork’s “Best of 2005″ list, and I think that rubbed some people the wrong way.

The lighting in this is beautiful. I think this is one of the best videos I’ve seen in the last few years.

RIP Kendrick’s Career without the support of the Fox News base or powerful tastemakers like Geraldo he’s not going to last long in the industry

They should say screw iTunes, it’s no longer the monolith it used to be. Amazon Music was a far better store.

June 18, 2015 on No, 1989 Won’t Be On Apple Music

It was a bit of a political clusterfuck in LA.

Also they tried to headline with John Mayer and Imagine Dragons and no one was buying it.

May 20, 2015 on Marina Abramović Is Very Pissed At Jay Z

I remember when one of Tidal’s selling points was playlists curated from artists. Then Jay-Z put out his first playlist of 12 songs and guess what! He likes all the same artists blogs like. Thanks for the expertise and deep cuts!

The fact that it comes from a (trusted and credible) music writer that works with him, vouching for a history of under-the-radar work, makes it seem less likely that this particular act is a PR stunt.

And I know the article you’re talking about, it’s Cord Jefferson on Gawker from around the time of Watch the Thrones and the point was more that if Jay-Z and Kanye want to be the inspirational figures they claim to be, they have to do more than just exist as rich black men in the public eye.

I’m not saying his charities work out well or that he’s even particularly good at managing them. But to say that he’s solely interested in building up only his own wealth is a cynical reading when it’s far more likely he’s just incompetent at it.

This looks like a bad film and an even worse use of the Jem property but I also feel silly about complaining about “being authentic to the Jem canon”


is this what it sounds like to other people when I talk about Batman
