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

This week’s Shut Up, Dude comes to you from Raleigh, where the entire Stereogum staff was on hand for our free, all-ages Hopscotch Day Show at Kings and Neptune’s. Thanks to Charly Bliss, the Messthetics, Illuminati Hotties, Uniform, Tomberlin, Ric Wilson, David Nance Group, and Infinity Crush for playing on a Thursday afternoon! Dorian didn’t hit us hard yesterday, and hopefully you Alabama commenters also avoided the worst of it. Hopscotch had Sleater-Kinney with Kurt Vile and Snail Mail last night; James Blake, Jenny Lewis, Little Brother, Deerhunter, are still to come. Your best and worst comments from the week are below.

Only once it happens to you do you begin to wonder if some of the lowest rated comments each week are casualties of undetected sarcasm.

Or whether this community is actually just afraid to confront Breihan and his ties to big business?

Not defending, but it’s more likely than not this guy had no idea what was in the pills he was selling. The world of opioids is just a network of very sick people who are handcuffed to their receptors. I love Mac, but I’m sure he’s want this person to get help. You don’t intentionally kill your rich famous client.

Ire should be directed at the Drug Companies who dumped gasoline on the fire, and a government who refuses to embrace a culture of treatment for sick individuals.

Look, what this person did was wrong and he should have to suffer consequences. But does putting a twenty something junky in jail going to do anything to fix the problem? I bet if Mac had a say he’d want something good to come of all this, not end in the lifelong imprisonment of a sick person.

It’s 1 hour and 27 minutes long. I stayed up late last night for one listen, woke up early for work and have gotten two in this morning. Flying to Chicago in a few hours, that’ll give me exactly two more listens. If you line up the amount of listens I’ll have by the end of the day with Saturn’s pattern through this year and multiply it by 13, then divide that number by the 13th number of the Fibonacci sequence, your face will split in half exposing your third eye and your soul will awaken in the 13th dimension as a new and omniscient being capable of traversing all history and space in one instant.

I’ve been an avid reader for the past 10+ years, from a small country with few people who understand what music means to me. I graduated high school, graduated medical school and entered the world of “work” – basically grew up – visiting this site and reading you guys. I post scarcely here, but i just wanted to say, THANK YOU. From the bottom of my heart. To the writers and also the users. For making me feel part of a community who enjoys music as much as I do (and more).

I don’t know why this post prompt me to write this, but I love all of you.

Have a great thursday!
Pablo

so stereogum’s favorite albums of 2019 so far seem to be Lana Del Rey’s new record and Father of the Bride by Vampire Weekend. Count me so far out of that.

I used to work at Pier One and they used this song in their commercials. Consequently, it was also on all of their piped in music. Therefore I heard this song every 3 hours or so for about a year and a half. I hate this song because it makes me think of wicker.
