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

Next week we’ll reveal the winner of our annual Song Of The Summer survey (I voted for “Blueberry Jam”). Your best and worst comments are below.

Fuck, heroin is so out of control in this country and it still blows my mind how many people don’t seem to instantly connect the dots when you explain to them that people these days usually start with pharma pills and move on to heroin because it’s easier to get/cheaper.

People still have the wrong-headed notion that the only people who would dare use heroin are scummy druggies that are making a choice to get fucked up.

It’s sad how little sympathy addicts get.

I miss the days when Grimes was just trying to pilot a homemade houseboat down the Mississippi

Two absolutely brilliant people. The idea that you could love someone partly due to the fact that they loved someone else so deeply is poetic. Both of these individuals have suffered real loss in their lives, and deserve all the happiness the world can possibly provide.

There’s a movie here, starring Williams, scored by Elverum.

Lots of empty platitudes about a kid that was far from innocent. Also……… Zimmerman (that piece of human garbage) is Hispanic. That kind of fudges with the narrative.

God, I may not believe in you, but you did some very fine work getting X killed. Please, just this once, hear my prayer and kill this talentless pedophile motherfucker. Or. R. Kelly, I’m cool with either, bro. Amen.

People already starting the handwringing over them dating in these comments. Realize that your fandom has no influence on an artists personal life and that you liking their output doesn’t entitle you to have a say in their lives.
