Also, let Neil serve as an example of how you can age eloquently as an old head and not devolve into some spineless conservative wanker in the manner that so many of his peers have.

Normalize shooting the shit and having questionable hot takes without having swarms of parasocial twitter fan bases tearing you apart.

Super weird to get on her about (sometimes) co-writing songs, and then praise Billie Eilish and Finneas, who…co-write songs together.

Weird take.

Maybe your band could have released some albums after the one that a not insignificant amount of fans of this type of music consider to be one of the greatest of all time. You have to actually buy a lottery ticket to win the lottery.

Can someone explain to me how it is that Neil is being anything more than a sanctimonious bitch? I’ve got no love for Spotify, but Neil is just full of selective outrage, trite woke-isms, and ageist bullshit. Does he ever say what the specific lies are? Doesn’t he bother to refute those supposed lies? No, and no one here cares if he does either. Because everyone is on team Neil and against the supposed meatheads. It’s fucking stupid, and you’re being fucking stupid if you think Neil, who doesn’t give a fuck about streaming anyway, is anything other than a self-righteous prick in this instance.

Sad is the world in which a major streaming service is more sensible than Neil.

Did anyone listen to Barn? I just can’t get through it.

THIS WEEK’S EDITOR-IN-CHIEF’S CHOICE

  Loud Noises
Score:5 | Jan 25th

I used to work for and now volunteer for a non-profit that puts on themed events with big names. Because of my backstage experience with the organization, sometimes my volunteer work includes “valeting” one of the panelists – pretty much chauffeuring them around to make sure they get to where they need to be at the right time. I was Jeff’s valet for the night, and Nick was also a panelist. They happen to be very good friends so they spent most of the non-stage time together. Jeff and his wife were both very nice, though I had a super awkward moment when friends from the nonprofit referred to me by my nickname instead of my professional name and I think he thought I was being coy or something. Anyways, Nick Offerman is one of the nicest people I’ve ever met, which was cool. Here’s a clip from the event – this part was awesome for me because this song has meant a lot to me for a very long time and I got to talk to him about his answer afterwards in more detail. Also I had him sign an OG CD sleeve of A Ghost is Born which I plan on getting framed.
