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

A few cool interviews we did this week that you might’ve missed… At Life Is Beautiful, Ryan Leas had Nick Rhodes correct our recent 10 Best Duran Duran Songs list. Yes, Nick is fond of “The Chauffeur.” Former ‘Gum staff writer Claire Lobenfeld dropped by to write about bowling with Pure Bathing Culture (Pure Bowling Culture). I love the title track from Pray For Rain; it sounds like half-speed Taylor Dayne. (That rhymes.) Also super-producer Glen Ballard talked to T. Cole Rachel about the 20th anniversary of Jagged Little Pill and what it’s like being super. Speaking of Canada, on Wednesday the Ottawa Sun said Stereogum is “uber-cool.” It was my second favorite shoutout of the day.

Here are your most uber-cool comments this week.

American Wedding was the one track I always skipped on Nostalgia Ultra bc I didn’t want anyone thinking I was listening to the Eagles. It’s a good song but not worth the potential shame.

A friend of mine served him brunch when he was in town with Shellac a couple months ago and said he was the nicest dude. And at least we know he has no problem with brunch.
