Shut Up, Dude: This Week’s Best And Worst Comments

By Scott Lapatine / January 4, 2013 - 5:58 pm

And we’re back. It’s the first Shut Up, Dude of the year, and the first post of the day because something happened to our server last night. I don’t know what, exactly, but we looked into the node rebuild status (?) and things are stable again. Thanks for bearing with us. Anyway. Earlier this week… More »

As 2012 comes to a close, it’s once again time to take a look back at the the past twelve months in comments. Tomorrow will be this site’s 11th birthday and we could not have lasted this long without you. And Lana Del Rey. Without quick-witted and hot-headed responses to our posts, things around here… More »

This week we published our list of The 50 Most Anticipated Albums Of 2013 with My Bloody Valentine at #1. A dubious choice perhaps; but, two days later the band announced they’d completed mastering a new album. It was a Christmas miracle. Post-holiday, we listed the year’s Top 30 Electronic Dance Tracks and 10 BiggestMore »

I’ve been so busy this Black Friday (napping, Homeland, napping) I almost forgot to post this week’s Shut Up, Dude. While this was an abbreviated posting week, you still had plenty to discuss… We deconstructed the Mumford-ization of pop and the Internet Radio Fairness Act. We championed new releases from the Evens and Action Bronson. More »

It’s the weekend, so while y’all probably have some Gilette shit to do right about now, let’s quickly knowingly head-nod at each other but how jam-friendly this week was. Autre Ne Veut, for instance. Or permajam candidates Yo La Tengo. This week we also welcomed Johnny Marr the solo artist, along with Johnny Depp the… More »

What a week, friends. My Bloody Valentine guaranteed a new album within the next eight weeks, Sufjan connected on a patriotic new jam, Lushlife hooked up a great video, we thought about rock operas, Depeche Mode, and Swans, and re-elected the Presiden Of The United States Of America. We keep busy. So do you, with… More »

This week, man. Things are dire in our hometown, and we hope the reading of these blogposts were as successful (and temporary) a diversion as writing them has been. The real recap of this week is, shit in NYC is fucked (see also: the Marathon is still happening this weekend?)(UPDATE: It’s not!), and people need… More »

The week after CMJ always feels like the first week of the holiday season. Maybe it’s because the festivals are done for the year, and we begin thinking in earnest about the sorts of lists we will assault you with for the year’s end, or maybe it’s just because we hang out on our couche… More »

This week we anointed Godspeed You! Black Emperor, heard the great new Local Natives, read an insightful Turntable Interview with Grass Widow’s Hannah Lew, and remembered why we don’t care for the Vines. We gave your 7th Grade nephew a great starter kid to get into DC hardcore, and as for the news that matters,… More »

‘Tis the week before CMJ, which is the calm before the storm of free PBR and incessant energy drink branding on the streets of LES. ENJOY THE SILENCE. Or well not the silence, exactly, as this is a music blog and we are talking about music all the time. So ENJOY THE WEEKEND, at leaset,… More »

Busy week! We unveiled our list of the 40 Best New Bands Of 2012. We prematurely evaluated albums from Bob Dylan, the Killers, and G.O.O.D. Music. We ranked Grizzly Bear’s best songs, Dylan’s more obscure LPs, and Pavement’s discography. And, of course, we took sides on the Albini Vs. Palmer beef. Let’s see what you… More »

A long Labor Day weekend is upon us! Which means this weekend we have some extra time to reflect upon the week that was. And by “reflect on the week that was,” of course, I mean only that we will have extra time to relive all of the great and horrible conversations we had i… More »
