This is funny, and Rufus's performance is surely inspired, but Accordion Troubadour Jason Webley has been doing something similar in concert for years, and does it as one big medley...

I love the way people thumbs down something just because they don't agree with it. I've got an M.I.A. super bowl gesture for all'y'all. All I said was the song's not good. And it's not. I'm a big Kanye fan. But there's no hook to that song and it bores me. I hope they do another album together and maybe work on it a little longer than rush it in between three other projects.

I think he really phoned that fight in. The fix was on.

This song is just not good. No matter how many times people tell me it is, it just doesn't change that it isn't. The filming/editing is great. The song still bland.

If an Avril Lavigne album get released in Canada, does it make a noise? In other news, where's The Weeknd? By far the best music released moose-side of the border last year.

Yes, but isn't that a better use of the internet's time than finding new ways to 'expose' Lana Del Rey's inauthenticity? I, for one, find it to be a good day when one gets to remember that Ice Cube used to be a rapper.

ICEHOUSE was an Australian band actually originally called FLOWERS -- their first 3 albums came out under the name Flowers, the third of which, in 1980, was the album ICEHOUSE, which broke them (in Australia). In 1981 they had to change their name due to some Scottish band named The Flowers, and they chose to rename themselves Icehouse. So in this case the band, 4 years in the making, named themselves after what they thought best represented their music. Tell me, what could they do, Electric Blue?

Can somebody please explain to me what the fuck MIXTAPE now means to this hipster generation. To me, a mixtape was a a collection of songs I put together (on an actual cassette) and gave to my girlfriend after she dumped my ass... in hopes of getting make up sex. Isn' t part of the whole point of the word mixtape that it be a MIX? So how are all these artists making mixtapes? Can people stop appropriating words and giving them new stupid meanings, especially when the words feature prominently in my formative years? Can we just start calling this what it is, Artists giving away a bunch of free music that can't get anyone to Pay Them For Yet? No judgement whatsoever on the quality, I loved both albums The Weeknd gave away this year, but still have no clue as to why they were called mixtapes?

November 18, 2011 on Mixtape Of The Week: Small Black Moon Killer
I was there and can say that there were only 2 acts I saw all weekend that were more than 5 minutes late: Lykee Li, who was 20 minutes late but sang her ass off, put on a great show and went ten minutes over (net loss 10 minutes), and Danzig who was such an embarrassment even when he was on stage that FFFFest should have pulled his plug a lot earlier and asked for their money back. If fuckin' Slayer can show up on time and play an epic set, than someone needs the kitty litter down Danzig's throat until he coughs up his paycheck. Best sets of the weekend: Slayer, Austra, Russian Circles, Boris, Architecture in Helsinki, Mates of State, Lykee Li, and Ocote Soul Sounds. Also heard Public Enemy was great but I was stuck waited on Danzig.

November 7, 2011 on Danzig’s Fun Fun Fun Set Is Epic Fail
I don't understand why they don't just replace Jenny Lewis, if she seem to be too busy/diva-esque. I even have a suggestion, Cary Ann Hearst. Who sounds a hell of a lot like Lewis and can really write. I loved her EP last year and can't wait to see what she does next. Don't get me wrong, I love Jenny Lewis (solo and J&J) but bands change members all the time. Like Fleetwood Mac...

July 14, 2011 on Rilo Kiley Break Up Over “Deception, Disloyalty, Greed”
Why is it that like 95% of the Haunting the Chapel selections are not downloadable mp3s, where as its nearly the opposite for indie rock. I really want to download this and listen to this later. I can't stream music at work and I won't sit on a website stream later. THis sounds really interesting, as do most of the HTC selections, but I never get to hear them.

I'd like to point out that the' first ever newspaper album' was obviously JETHRO TULL's THICK AS A BRICK, which came with a full newspapers of fake stories. You'd think Radiohead would know that.

Is there anyone/band on earth that hasn't covered this song yet? Just once I'd like to see someone cover Dead Souls... or really... anything else.

January 10, 2011 on Björk Covers Joy Division
It's about time fore Alice Cooper. But the Hall of Fame continues to be meaningless without two of the top 5 selling acts of the 70's YES and JETHRO TULL. How people like Chic, even get mentioned before some of the most successful and influential bands is unbelievable to me. And I love Brian Eno, but what about ROXY MUSIC? And the most influential and groundbreaking of all the progressive rock that critics have tried to ignore for forty years... KING CRIMSON. Even recently sampled by Kanye,

yeah... I tried to get that song for an independent film last year but I guess HBO offered more money than nothing ... ;( Oh well, I'll always have my rough cut.
