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

I didn’t have “Trump is mad because he thinks the Danish prime minister can and should sell him Greenland” on my Darkest Timeline Bingo this week. But I got curious … were there any good music groups from Greenland? I don’t think we’ve ever covered a Greenlandic act on Stereogum. I did some googling and turns out Greenland slaps:

I like Billie Eilish and really like “Bad Guy,” but it’s hardly “outsider art” in the way “Old Town Road” is when she’s had a record deal since she was 14 and has showbiz parents.

to me this whole thing feels like everyone is talking past the real issue, just like when people say colin was protesting the national anthem or flag when it’s about police brutality and systemic inequality. he was using his platform to protest large scale social issues. you can argue with his methods or his actions since (taking the settlement, the nike deal), but for jay to say “we’re past kneeling and on to actionable items” as if the issue was ever about problems with the nfl specifically that he can solve as a “consultant” or even an owner is insane. the only “actionable item” available to the NFL or it’s players is either money to the cause or raising awareness, which is exactly what kneeling is intended to accomplish.

weird how im okay with both of these people, they seem so much cooler than young-millennial trash, like maybe gen z is chill? compare to say Chance the Rapper or Arianna Grande, and both lil Nas and Billie both seem so much more chill and less fucking stupid.

Counter-counter point: she is Eric Clapton. Insanely talented on guitar, not much on else. Pretension masquerading as art.

THIS WEEK’S EDITOR-IN-CHIEF’S CHOICE

i’m gonna have to agree with the others that this movie is truly great, and it’s perhaps QTs most interesting film.

Even the part with Bruce Lee, which I agree is kinda messed up, however I wouldn’t call it explicitly racist though, really says a lot about so many things about Hollywood then and now – and I think it’s really interesting that people aren’t thinking about it in this way. I think QT knew what he was doing with this scene from the jump – and he deliberately is trying to start a conversation.

For me – the way part of the movie is the fucking costumes. I mean that entire movie is so vibe-y, and the way the characters dress when they are on and off set works with the music and sets so damn well that you really feel like this is what Hollywood was actually like.

The best scene is Leo with the little girl though when he’s reading his book. Leo deserves an Oscar solely for that scene.
