We should all want as many people to vote as possible. As more people participate, the government becomes more representative of the people. If Republicans are worried that more people voting means less Republicans, then Republicans should take a look in the mirror rather than hand wringing over a greater percentage of the people participating in democracy.

NBC has been enabling Trump from the very beginning, since the days of ‘The Apprentice’ to humanizing him with appearances on ‘SNL’ and Jimmy Fallon. Fuck them all.

No, no. Not at all. Listen closely. Tom’s goes, “ding ding ding DA DA ding ding” while Ice’s goes, “ding ding ding da da DING DING”. Not even close to being the same thing.

I gotta say two things:
– I love The Age of Adz even more now and it’s one of Sufjan’s best albums. For some strange reason, I prefer this chaotic version of himself.
– All Delighted People is the most underrated Sufjan Stevens’ release.

Between this and airing Trumps’s “Town Hall” against Biden’s even though he’s the one who pulled out of the debate because he’s a whiny pissboy, NBC is really showing their true colors. Fuck them, Fuck Trump, Fuck Chuck Todd and Fuck you if you’re a Trump supporter.

I’d suggest killing them with fire, but they’re probably more susceptible to ground, rock, and water attacks now.

Regardless of what anyone thinks of this song, Matt Bomer can sing “Heaven” to me any day.

P.S. Job interview went well. Hiring manager intimated that I’ve got the job pending the reference check. But I’ve done this long enough to not celebrate until an offer is in hand.

Imagine getting like 48 hours notice and then going on live TV and doing this. Pretty fucking awesome. JW is a legend in my books

I don’t know if today’s All Access donor wants to be identified further but TOUGH.

I have been friends with David since ninth grade. David had cooler taste in music than me — he introduced me to Smashing Pumpkins — and yet I’m the one with a struggling music blog and he’s merely a celebrated civil rights attorney specializing in exonerations and wrongful convictions, police misconduct, LGBTQ+ rights, prisoners’ rights, and advocacy for victims of sex abuse. In your face, David.

David once tried to get me to see Suede on their first US tour but I didn’t wanna go / hadn’t heard of them. Sad! But we did see Black 47 a couple of times in high school. We were really into Black 47.

Thanks to David for donating and picking this awesome song!

This song is the anthem for every insufferable white women you know who is obsessed with:

1. Campaigning for Biden online
2. Making sure they never ever ever live in a neighborhood that isn’t 99% white.

Doesn’t take much at all to be better at drums than Meg White, and despite the downvotes, everyone fucking knows it.

I bet they do something. Burr practices a lot and I’d bet he’s much better than Meg.

I’ll be surprised if beabadoobee can go truly mainstream popular as opposed to just moderately Spotify popular, but either way I like what she’s doing.

Also, “Sofia” was my favorite song from Clairo’s album, so what a pleasant surprise to see that Tik Tok has now crowned it a hit.
