Comments from wordcore

This actually reminds me of being a teenager and two friends hate each other because they’ve both been mean to each other, and all you can say is, “I dunno, they’ve been nice to me, I’m just gonna stay out of it.”

August 27, 2015 on Grizzly Bear’s Ed Droste Deletes Twitter Account Amid Backlash For Taylor Swift Comments

I’m pretty happy with the sub. Kanye is a little oversaturated in terms of festival appearances right now, but it’s still a Kanye West show, and I’m happy to see “All Day” live. Hope Frank’s alright though.

Between Morrissey and Kanye my weekend is going to be so sad and arrogant.

How cool would it be if she just wore Silverchair t-shirts all the time

August 18, 2015 on Frances Bean Cobain Gives Rare Interview: “I Don’t Really Like Nirvana That Much”

I love Nihilist Arby’s. My favorite one is:

“Never forget who you are: a tiny speck on an insignificant rock hurtling through a void. May as well fuck some strangers this weekend. Arbys”

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

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.

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

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.
