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

All this machinery making modern music
Can still be open-hearted
Not so coldly charted
It’s really just a question of your honesty.

R.I.P. to one of the GOATs.

That’s fascinating, because I heard that the biological father was Dr Arnold Klein, celebrity dermatologist.

Here’s the simple answer to the Iran thing. If the guy was actually planning an attack on an American embassy, fuck him. I’ve been busy working today so I don’t yet know if that is a substantial claim or not. Really doesn’t have to be this huge debate. Not everything has to fall on two opposing sides.

Ahh yes, the what’s-become-annual tradition of the punk band who needs to explain their decision to play Coachella.

I don’t dispute the fact that most venues across the country are getting monopolized by the same corporations, making it difficult to navigate them as an independent band with punk ethos. However, I did see they got called out on Twitter by one of the runners of Market Hotel and Trans-Pecos in NYC for stating that in large cities it’s impossible to find indepedent/DIY venues that meet their cap size needs when in actually it really isn’t, and they gave an example of a band who did just that and sold out four consecutive nights.

MP’s intentions are in the right spot, but their justification isn’t full-proof.

I was so happy to see this column was back, until I read Tiny Mixtapes is going on hiatus. That site was one of the most amazing fountains of experimental music, and its music reviews and essays are so special in its own way. They work on concepts so powerful about music based on our society, nowadays communication and the way we perceive our bodies.

Now I’m afraid of losing Stereogum someday. I’ve been reading your essays, reviews and news for years. I just wish you, guys, keep doing the amazing job you’ve been doing for years, because some of us consider this virtual space important in our lives. We thank you now, and will thank you forever.
