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

This week’s Shut Up, Dude comes to you from Chicago, where I am enjoying the 25th anniversary Lollapalooza when it is not raining. (I reminisced about the festival’s earlier years here.) Chance The Rapper joined Flosstradamus last night, but I was watching Lana Del Rey. Also Malia Obama is here!

If you’re at Lolla come to our tent thing.

THIS WEEK’S 10 HIGHEST RATED COMMENTS

#10  blochead | Jul 25th Score:32

Can’t he just be a jackass? Like jackasses from every generation? Does he somehow have to be tied to this generation? My generation did dumb shit JUST LIKE THIS when we were young. Can we stop thinking everything happening is so special?

there are few things more disturbing than loosely organized, hybrid gangs of clowns.

Of the few main things I hate about him, one’s his petty, vogue ideas
someone’s been told too many times they’re beyond their years

Tom Taylor | Jul 24th Score:-15

This was the boldest act I have ever seen, Josh. A courageous rant to a captive audience, only matched in boldness perhaps by the Free-Hug Guy at the Trump rally. You did something I thought was impossible. You played on a bill with Ryan Adams and came off as the bigger prick.Shine on.

This continues? And still disregards almost entirely the validity of the point. Instead the protest against the protester seems to still be: ‘dance monkey dance! we paid you and our desire for endless regurgitated escapism must be sated’ never mind that the world is ending. that insidious monsters have turned nationally dialogue from policy/progress/tolerance to reality tv gimmickry and endless essential distraction.

I’m glad someone who has the platform finally said something. I’m not much of a fan of his music but the dude is smart as hell. I can’t even explain how psyched I am that he spoke up while all you idiots, Stereogum and pitchfork included, just buy into all this bullshit that somehow qualifies as music, news and entertainment. Wake up garbage people!
