go the f*ck away, Lizzie
too bad he didn’t apologize for sucking.
the thing is, Conor is so small and weak that he’d have trouble forcing himself on a Tickle-Me-Elmo doll.
but seriously, rapists should have their dicks cut off.
or, we could just boycott all this bullshit.
next time come strapped wit a fuckin pamper
While it was no where near an official release, but I have an old (mostly) acoustic set from the Siamese Dream- era called Mayonnaise Dream.
I’d strongly, strongly recommend it to anyone looking to bolster their Pumpkins’ ‘prime’ catalog. The acoustic version of Mayonnaise is worth it alone.
I always related Oh Inverted World to the Beach Boys, and though I realize it’s not completely analogous, Chutes Too Narrow will always be their ‘Pet Sounds’ in my head.
still have the ‘five against one’ cassette from my youth. collector’s item!
Overintellectualize it all you want…this is attention whore-dom at its worst.
It’s not even like she took the photo. It’s not her ‘art.’ She’s just a desperate skank in a shower.
When the shallow kiddie pool of talent dries up and all else fails, show your tits! Woooo!
Yeah, what a statement.
if BC were a dude this band would have never made it out of the ‘garage’
wonder if this is similar to what Timberland pitched Timberlake
Justin Timberlake is Bud Light
serious question: if we don’t comment will it go away?
Maybe a more intriguing discussion is how ‘independent’ music media’s shift towards the ‘pop/hip-hop-is now-cool-again’ thinking has impacted listeners who would have never listened to the shit in the first place.
It’s fairly obvious now that most ‘indie’ listeners’ favorite music outlets (p4k, spin, SG, etc) simply latched onto more-mainstream pop and rap coverage because those in charge felt that indie was losing its appeal in attracting page hits.
For awhile, it wasn’t cool to like pop.
The first waves of pseudo-authentic modern hipster-ism killed it.
Then people got so sick of hipsters and it became cool to like pop again, but only as a backlash to that original backlash.
In a way it seems that the modern pop resurgence among ‘alternative’ media is actually being hipster-ish about hipster-ism.
I agree with you Michael Hanna.
It used to be that music itself often dictated culture, politics, trends, etc, without a sole emphases on commercialism. The ‘ugly’ artists from the 60′s (think Dylan, the Dead, CSNY) wouldn’t stand a snowball’s chance in hell of ‘making it’ today based on aesthetics alone.
These days it’s bass-ackwards…the trends dictate the music. ‘Stars’ form overnight to capitalize on demographics, ‘scenes,’ and culture. (looking at you, hipsters). Authenticity, for what it’s worth, counts for almost nothing in 2013.
Now we have these constructed pop stars with minimal talent getting teams of 15-20 people to write their lyrics, melodies, production, clothing, force into movies, etc.
If you had a magic wand to replace say, Katy Perry, with another singer and throw all the same money and production behind her, I’m fairly confident saying that the end product would not drastically change. Modern pop (Perry, Gaga, Timberlake, Miley, Beiber, et all) are more ‘product’ than musician. You can’t take John out of the Beatles and still have the Beatles. You can’t take Jerry out of the Dead and still have the Dead.
The worst part to me is that there’s no one with enough clout to say ‘Stop!’ (probably because the $$$ is rolling in). But younger listeners especially continue to idolize the Mileys and Beibers of the world because they simply don’t know any better. Most publications and media aren’t doing a whole lot to combat those notions, either.
The best case scenario is to wait until all the shit just isn’t ‘cool’ anymore. Aren’t we sick of the ‘vapid pop-star’ yet?
just sitting here, the last white man in the 25-34 demographic not givin’ a sh!t about Justin Timberlake
Not that it matters, SB/TLB is barely an Outkast album.
How many tracks did they actually do together? The separation was well underway…
gaga is nothing more than an opportunist.
how much longer before she changes aesthetics (again) in an attempt to stay relevant?
Rap has once again reverted to style over substance.
Exec 1: Oh look we got a guy with dreads tats and chains.
Exec 2: Can he rap?
Exec 1: No, but he can scream real good about money, cars, drugs and hos…more importantly he LOOKS looks like a rapper.
Exec 2: Sign ‘em up. We’ll worry about talent later. Suburban kids will eat this @#$% up.
The quickest avenue to success in modern hip-hop is to become a glorified cartoon character. It fucking sucks.
