I’m going to quietly install this feature on my workplace’s Spotify and see how long it takes for people to realize they haven’t heard Drake in a long-ass time.

Weezer reinventing themselves as the world’s most popular cover band is actually a redemption arc I can kinda get behind

“i’m really rich” is definitely one of my least-favourite lyrical modes.

Please, it’s just music. It’s not that serious and this album is pretty fucking good.

This should not be optional, lest I be triggered by being forced to consider the misdeeds of artists featured on the platform. I would much prefer it if Spotify and other streaming services take the initiative and protect my and others’ delicate sensibilities from these moments.

Hey Tom, I’d recommend giving this a read. It’s a decidedly more level-headed, rational take on the bullshit that happened over the weekend. The first three paragraphs of this review are bruuuuutal.

Yeah, but no, based on past comments. I take music as seriously as anyone – it’s basically my life. Like, I am regularly around pretentious, snobby jazz and classical musicians who will TELL YOU they are pretentious and snobby as they go on and on about how everything modern sucks. I get taking music seriously. But it’s not THAT serious. At the very least, obviously, I didn’t think that comment was funny.
