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

This first Shut Up, Dude of 2018 comes to you from LaGuardia Airport, where I’m waiting to head to Florida, which is currently raining-frozen-lizards cold, but not bomb-cyclone-Brooklyn cold. I hope you all are keeping warm in your flannels, listening to anything other than “Filthy.” (Don’t worry JT will get his chance to respond on Stereoyum.)

Geoff Barrow is bitching about not making streaming money?

Considering Stereogum commenters have released more albums this decade than Portishead, I guess we should chime in about how unfair Spotify is at paying us too?

I like Timberlake. He handles being a huge popular culture figure as good as anyone. He know how to collaborate with the right people, and he makes better music than anyone ever thought he would years ago when he first entered to public imagination. He handsome, and I still listen to music he’s made in the past. He’s also a really great actor who is capable of humor and has dramatic range.

That said, lololololololololololololololololololololololol.

Teenagers talking about how old they feel make me feel strangely youthful. Nothing is more eternal than teenagers wanting to feel old.

Poor Lorde. All she wanted was to get rich by making some vapid pop music, and now she’s under fire for being coerced into pretending she has an opinion or even knowledge at all of the world around her. Oopsie!

On the real though: she should’ve just played the show. Because she, like every other pop star/icon/entertainer, is a fucking PIECE OF MEAT ON DISPLAY and people the world over are deserving of picking the flesh from her bones.
