I can’t even imagine what that would look like.

Jeff Daniels was in Godless, which is better than anything Jim Carrey has ever done (except possibly The Truman Show.)

November 21, 2019 on Beck Discusses Failing To Get Aphex Twin To Produce Him In The ’90s And Denying Dumb And Dumber “Loser” For Its Theme Song
To be fair, a "What the hell is this?" from Thom Yorke could probably be interpreted in a variety of ways.

Like many of Tom's dubious takes, I don't know if I can get behind his critical reappraisal of Dumb And Dumber.

Oftentimes, but this week in particular, it feels like I've only had time to follow a fraction of these discussions. I will use my imagination and pretend I made brilliant contributions to them all. Have a nice weekend, stereo people.

November 15, 2019 on Grimes – “So Heavy I Fell Through The Earth”
Itunes tracklist omits We Appreciate Power so I guess that's no longer on the album. This is lovely.

November 15, 2019 on Taylor Swift – “Beautiful Ghosts”
Just this morning I was telling myself “I should really watch Superbabies: Baby Geniuses 2 for the stinging social commentary”.

November 13, 2019 on Simpsons Episode Featuring Michael Jackson Kept Off Disney+
I remember listening to the dvd commentary for this episode back in the day, hearing producers and writers saying it was an absolute dream come true to get to work with MJ, as well as one of their all time favorite episodes.

This is great and a wonderful surprise as I assumed Jenn would be busy with Bon Iver related stuff for the foreseeable future. I would very much like a new album.

Ulysses is great though. Insufferable? Yes. Self-indulgent? Yes. But still a compelling and worthy affair. DFW may have been a lot of things, but he was no Joyce.

And if you see him from the other side you'll just assume he's a big Muppets fan.

He's using custom-made organic tofu ink and I bet Kat Von D is freehanding that shit.

Best case scenario Coldplay equals worst case scenario Arcade Fire. So ...hopefully?

November 3, 2019 on Watch Coldplay Debut “Everyday Life” & Play “Orphans” Offstage On SNL
The brilliance of this song is overwhelmingly found in its delivery and covers consequently become pointless.

They are both equally corny and inexplicably successful.

November 3, 2019 on Kanye West Ties Eminem For Most Consecutive #1 Albums
I love these songs, especially Fade Away. It feels like getting pop music of 100% purity injected directly into my dopamine receptors.

Is that the name of an actual person or a Kim Possible character?

I just hate it when I'm supposed to go fly fishing and my uber takes me to the Jimmy Fallon show by mistake.

I went to the Hall of Fame for the first time this summer, just to check it out. The most memorable thing about that evening was seeing Swearin' play at the stage outside when I got back out. Well, they do have some neat exhibits, if you can deal with all the eye-rolling you'll be doing along the way. The actual hall of fame as an institution is, of course, as out of touch as the Grammys.
