The whole Mac/Mitski furor is a prime example of how social media has melted away any semblance of appropriate boundaries between fans and artists. Can you imagine Beatles fans clogging up Melody Maker with protestations of The Replacements calling their album Let It Be?

1. I will always love this era of music, no matter its reputation as we get further away from it.

2. Lots of awesome content on the site lately. Just a ton of killer pieces. Good work to all. Since hardly any of my friends care this deeply about music, this is only place I have to discuss it in the detail I want to, so I greatly appreciate it.

I’m over here wondering how I’m gonna get my family’s medical bills paid and you’re gonna hit me with “Some dude got 1.5 million for making straight edge kids appear to be drinking beers, a mirage that makes zero sense because if you are straight edge you basically do nothing but tell people about it every day”!

Seriously the fix is in. There’s like 200 assholes just passing money back and forth and we’re eating cake. Tom, I’m trying to have a nice day.

As a producer, I was once told that using samples was cheating, so I recorded real drums. Then I thought that using programed drums was cheating, so I learned to play real drums. I then thought that using store-bought drums was cheating, so I learned to make my own. I then realized that using premade skins was also cheating, so I killed a goat and skinned it. I then thought that was cheating too, so I grew my own goat from a baby goat. I know that this is probably cheating as well, but I’m not too sure where to go from here. I rarely even have time for making music or posting on Stereogum much, what with the goat farming and all.

So…. The secret to his success is basically stealing titles from Mitski? Because that was my takeaway.
