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

Happy 20th anniversary to Midnite Vultures. Possibly the greatest Beck album, definitely the funkiest. This week Beck released a new LP that allegedly features Sky Ferreira, and he finally broke his legendary silence about Dumb And Dumber. Big week for Beck news. Also he is apparently not a Scientologist? Let’s pour champagne on a honeybee and dig in your best and worst comments below.

Look at Osteen’s face. He definitely has weird Eyes Wide Shut parties in the basement of the megachurch, that’s why he couldn’t house all of the hurricane victims.

This is an incredibly classy way to describe what actually went on behind the scenes and articulate the reasons why she left. Lots of respect.

““ Can you tell me that I’m still a creative equal within the band? They said, “No.” So I left.”

I’m sure this is condensing a larger conversation, but.. ouch. That sucks. (As did the last album. Oh come on, you know it did!)

As a pofessionally-trained journalist, though, I don’t love SG’s loose policy on allowing its own staff to comment as readers, much less appear in lists of top reader comments. It just reeks of ickiness and somehow only serves to ultimately discredit SG. Otherwise love this site.
