I did NOT enjoy "Saw Lightning." These tracks are better and make me want to hear the whole album. It's interesting that he's trying new things, but the person Beck collaborates best with is Beck, and Beck alone.

The song is pretty trash, but I'm pretty sure everyone can relate to the subject material so guaranteed hit, amiright?

It’s mutually beneficial... they both get to cast their nets a little further out to get the attention they crave.

Isn't there a Phish song about bubonic plague-infest prairie dogs threatening to break up a concert? I swear they have some tunes that are at least tangentially-related. And let's not forget, the #1 reason to not like Phish is so that the other hipsters will think you're cool.

July 9, 2019 on Ariana Grande – “in my head” Video
Lightning Bolt was the first album I didn't end up liking from them. When I first read this take, I was thinking to myself "What is he talking about? Critics torched them for LB" but then I looked it up on metacritic (which I know is not the end-all and be-all but still) and I was surprised to see it in the "generally favorable reviews" category. So maybe that's to this guy's point? IDK, sometimes you run out of revolutionary ideas. Sometimes your energy is focused in a different direction when you are young and you end up pushing the envelope in a way you can't once you've been around the block. Even if Lightning Bolt didn't hit for me as an album, it still produced some solid tunes that give you more to look forward to when catching them live for the 10th time.

June 27, 2019 on Am I Grateful Enough For The Dead?
I've noticed that Dead & Co have released a lot of their recent shows on streaming services and I just can't imagine why you would listen to them. I could see reliving a show you recently attended, but even then, why would you put that on when there are so many actual Grateful Dead shows you can stream?

I'm not too sure if this Vernon Downs location is going to be up to the task for such a momentous occasion. Tell me, did Pablo Escobar ever do any illegal activites there?

I unfortunately also spent money on physical copies of music by Limp Bizkit in high school, but when I saw the cover art above and the name of the album, I though to myself "I don't recall that album at all... is that from before or after the two that I bought?" Turns out, it's the one with "Nookie" on it. I definitely owned it. I completely shut everything about it out of my long-term memory.

I've never watched Seth Meyers show, but now I'm thinking maybe I should. I've also never watched James Cordon's, and I'm thinking I'll keep it that way.

The court would have approved his application, if not for his weird insistence not to name any of the streets in the new subdivision.

To be fair to you, you're seeing Hootie and the Blowfish over seeing THS for the third night in a row. Still a very poor life choice, but not as bad as you made it sound!

I like this guy. He dated Natalie Portman when she was at an appropriate age, and didn’t even need to brag about it.

I'm seeing Vampire Weekend this... err... weekend and I'm cautiously optimistic about how the new songs will be. I'm thinking I will like them because, even though I currently would also rank FOTB last in the band's "unimpeachable discography," I can't deny that most of the songs they'll play from it are pretty fun, and that's what they do really well in concert (or at least they did last time I saw them, when Contra had just been released).

Don't get me wrong, there are many good jokes to make about Phish and Phish fans, but this one seemed lazy and off-the-mark. I get this way about my sports teams too ("I can make fun of my own team way better than you can!")

C'mon, a "Phish is still a thing?" joke? You're better than that. Anyway I've been to Bonnaroo exactly once. I'm a relative prude, so I just wanted to find some marijuana, and it was really quite difficult because everyone was in search of something more potent. We eventually succeeded though!
