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

This week’s Shut Up, Dude comes to you from Lisbon, where I am attending NOS Alive festival and everyone is talking about why John Podesta refused to give the DNC server to the FBI and the CIA. Portuguese festivals are different than American festivals in that there are a lot of kebab stands and people still wear Abercrombie T-shirts. Last night I saw Ryan Adams (B+), alt-J (C-), Jessy Lanza (A-), and the xx (Zzz), among others. RHYE live-debuted their two new songs, but I left before that to charge my phone. Always Be Charging. Your best and worst comments of the week are below.

Stereogum – I love you but these autoplay ads/videos at the bottom of every post are fucking unbearable. Can we at least compromise and let them autoplay with the sound off? It’s especially obnoxious to autoplay sound on a music website…

I’m on Boost Mobile, so I get to listen to the album, but all of Jay’s verses are performed by Shaq.

Score:34 | Jun 30th

It’s well-written, thoughtful, and speaks very highly of Chance’s earlier work while admitting to feeling disappointed with his current direction.

It’s not “offensive” at all.

Can this please be the start of some sort of backlash against Chance that recognizes that he’s *kind of* a phony? *ducks*

Well, perhaps not the subjects themselves, but with the powers that be. It is fairly clear that the topic is a favorite within the media.

“There’s a moral responsibility… blah blah blah.”

Entertainment journalists need to get off their fucking high horses and learn their place. You don’t do advocacy journalism, no one wants to hear your misplaced SJW rambling when ur writing about the warped tour. These billboard guys are hacks. Same with most of the snarky current gum lineup.
