"In the time since he left... to strike out on his own..." There's gotta be a better way of saying that...

Perhaps he was closer with and more trusting of his manager than he was of his children? If that were the case, I could see his children not being very happy with it.

I'm always down for free food, so I don't know why Jack thinks it's so ludicrous.

I would argue that the [live] musicianship by the likes of Howe and Wakeman are superior to that of Rush, but I know there are ample Rush fans who would chew me out for saying that.

I'm actually digging what Miley's been doing pretty hard. I hope she keeps it up.

I'm a big fan of it. I also didn't realize how much of a part Mike Noyce plays on the album, which after listening a few times I can hear his influence. A lot of this thing just screams Paul Simon to me, particularly Timothy and Little Nowhere Towns.

As someone who has been Apple free since 2013, I am not shocked that they deal on the wrong side of the ethical grey area. *turns up nose and walks away*

This is very good. Little Nowhere Towns is the best Paul Simon song I've heard in a long, long time.

It's mostly because country bandwagon'ed the FUCK out of 9/11, which in turn, made some people really, really racist. It was so focused on being "authentically" American that it pinned a singular identity to being "American," and if you didn't fit the mold, you were an outsider. Could you imagine someone of Middle Eastern descent releasing a country tune post-9/11? Folks of all backgrounds have infiltrated all different forms of music, but the idea of a non-white country singer is tough to imagine. And the difficulty of imagining that says a lot about the county music industry.

April 24, 2015 on My Morning Jacket’s Jim James Has Some Harsh Words For Modern Country Music
He didn't say it causes people to become racist, he said it causes people to (indirectly) take pride in being racist. Not saying I necessarily agree with him, but a big difference. Also, I have a bunch of Facebook friends who post modern country music all the time, and no fewer than three of them are really racist. A handful of the others aren't overtly racist, but they are definitely accidentally racist at times. Brad Paisley and LL weren't lying, it's a thing.
