The full quote is actually:

“I think Kesha will get to that eventually,” said Wayne Coyne. “She doesn’t have that sort of power now, but I think she will eventually. There is nothing wrong with blackface.”

“It’s like an electric city.”

Unlike, say, Boston, which still relies on the illuminating power of whale oil.

Nonsense. We also have lame 50s/60s retreads like All About That Bass.

People LOVE to complain about Taylor. It’s so boring. This is a bop.

I’m pretty sure that the “Kanye West Rework” is actually the rework of “Flashing Lights” she’s been doing live and not a remix of “Yellow Flicker Beat” by Kanye West.

It’s annoying that smaller sites like Stereogum and Pitchfork create such confusion by running their false assumptions and inferences as headlines without actually ever bothering to confirm their information before publishing it.

I’m guessing it must just be because Pitchfork and Stereogum are too small potatoes to warrant a call or an email back from Lorde or Kanye’s PR outfits.

There are no NEW Pumpkins fans are there? The only thing keeping this guy going has to be those few Gen Xers who still cling to their cherished 90s CDs, right? I mean, Corgan and crew were barely tolerable then, but now it’s almost like a weird joke, it’s like those faithful few who still listen to Nirvana in earnest. Some music just doesn’t age well. I suppose I should give him credit for being able to sustain a career as a nostalgia act, but I really don’t see the appeal.

Jonathan Cooper | Oct 23rd Score:-17

Stereogum is like the CNN of shitty indie news. Fuck you

I’m all for writing songs about NYC as long as it’s the interesting stuff. Like the stray cat problem in my neighborhood. Boom. There’s a song. Or the rat problem also in my neighborhood. Boom. Another song. Or all the trash processing plants that permeate the area with that delicous trashy smell. Number 1 hit? Maybe. That crowded, claustrophobic, yet ultimately alone feeling? Bingo. Song.

Oh, god. I need to move. What am I doing with my life? Someone help me.
