I don't know how Drake has managed to dodge association with the Astroworld tragedy. Not least emotionally. Pearl Jam were emotionally traumatised for years after Roskilde. It's just like it never happened for Drake.
Who said that coming forward with an accusation is character assassination? I'm talking about, and think that Flylo is talking about, people on the internet prematurely shitting all over Gaslamp Killer's name (by the way I know nothing of Gaslamp Killer outside of this story). I don't think that Flylo is discouraging sexual assault victims from coming forward, he is reacting to his label prematurely distancing themselves etc etc. Something which was, presumably beyond his control. Sexual assault victims should certainly come forward, but this has not been challenged in this article nor in this comments section as far as I can tell.
The presumption of innocence is valuable to you yourself as well, it doesn't matter what the accusation is, if you were accused you should be thankful we abide by it so that you're at least given a chance to defend yourself. We live in a patriarchal world wherein men are so often put at an unfair advantage, also in the legal system. Does this mean we should throw out the presumption of innocence in cases of sexual assault? No.
Also about what was said, he did not call the women liars necessarily, he said 'the internet' is a liar. Probably referring to all the premature condemnation his friend is receiving. I don't see him as condemning discussion on the topic here, he's just saying don't get carried away. As far as I'm concerned Gaslamp Killer could be guilty, or he could be innocent. It would be grossly unfair and foolhardy to judge on the evidence presented at this point.
Did you watch the video or only read the quote though? I'm personally not arguing that the legal system doesn't offer false convictions or false acquittals and neither is Marie Hinein in this extraordinary interview. But at least let the case go to trial before assassinating someone's character. I'm sure this is more what Flylo meant even if it's not precisely what he said. Sexual assault cases should not be treated differently to any other case. The legal system is not perfect but it's the best thing that we've got. If you've ever been falsely detained by the police on suspicion of a crime you'll know how it feels to have the full weight of society bearing down against you, it doesn't feel good. Watch the video.
I recommend you all watch this interview with a lawyer defending a similar case. https://youtu.be/1XB5fG7gbZ0 "Hashtag ibelievevictims is not a legal principle nor should it ever be" And I'll remind you all that this isn't even a case at this point. Just wait til you're accused of something heinous and the court of public opinion condemns you. Flylo is totally right about this. Bill Cosby = piece of shit Brock Turner = piece of shit Gaslamp Killer = a person accused of rape
Try the Audiotree recording that's on Spotify... particularly Size of the Moon and Cadmium on that thing... I guess either you connect with it or you don't though
There's too much corporate sponsorship going on for this festival to be er... 'cool'. They fire g-star raw t-shirts into the air as consumer mad punters scramble to catch them, there's a whole field dedicated to Ella bache makeovers and 'brand experiences' and the worst thing is that the festival goers are LINING UP for it!!!
There's a lot of money and marketing power behind this album.
I went to NOS Alive in 2013 because it was somehow the only place in Europe that Twin Shadow was playing at. It was pretty good, a lot of bullshit corporate sponsorship around. It would be unfair to compare the eexperience to Primavera Sound but... Well it doesn't compare. Alt-J are the worst, Ryan Adams is totally right, people get so excited about the most mediocre music like Alt-J or the XX... I don't get it.
I find it difficult to imagine a situation where they were like "Hey, Billie Joe Armstrong, someone just tragically died and so... we of course recommend that you cancel your set tonight" and it was solely the decision of Billie Joe, Mike and Tré to go and play anyway. It was probably genuine confusion and split second decisions about crowd safety and maybe they genuinely weren't informed. I don't think there are any bad guys here, it's just a bad situation! Anyway it's very sad for this guy and everyone really!
Hey Stereogum, Anthony Fantano, that melon, he likes ya!
Radiohead aren't bringing their music to the government of Israel, they're bringing their music to the young and liberal people of Israel most of whom recognise the problem their country poses to Palestine. Not playing in Israel is not going to make the country more aware of the oppression of Palestinians, playing in Israel will. What of that argument?
that one is gone too.... this one! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2w6-Vdjl0dE
It wasn't the late 90s it was 2002.
Ok - so it really is just his stance on animal rights. Racism towards the Chinese is out of order I'll take that and insensitivity to what was a recent wound is ill-advised. Although the animal agriculture industry by scope and cruelty is absolutely without doubt the worst atrocity committed by humans. It's a continuing atrocity running every second of our lives and it's constantly magnifying in scale. He's just a very progressive thinker, certainly a narcissist but he's not wrong. 7 upvotes for the tautology 'meat is murder' being registered is sickening. Go and watch slaughterhouse footage on youtube for more than an hour, that's what I did when I used to eat animals.
Can anyone tell me anything that Morrissey has ever said that they disagree with?
Sounds very, very good to me, Faithful and Childs Play are great - is that a Fat Freddy's Drop sample on Pop Style?
My housemate from Washington used to just say "#1!" and smile ironically every time I said the word "America"
