I'm excited. The singles have been fucking excellent, there's finally a confirmed release date, and Jack Antonoff has been on a hot streak with me lately. Real shame about the potentially great album art ruined by those hideous font choices.

July 31, 2019 on Lana Del Rey Shares Norman Fucking Rockwell Album Art, Tracklist
The only thing I know is that I once dated a Tool fan and they were apparently on the low end of the spectrum for batshit insane fans. I also heard something about the fibonacci sequence and immediately decided I didn't care. It sounded like something unimportant from a fan trying way too hard to sound smart. The response on Twitter has been interesting, as it confirmed to me that there is a big difference between someone who likes MJK and can tolerate his other projects vs. someone who likes Tool in spite of or while only tolerating his presence. I think this should be a fun experience, but there's definitely a bit of context being given to me that I'd say makes it less than blind, even if I didn't have to suffer through existing in the 90's.

July 31, 2019 on Sleater-Kinney – “Can I Go On”
I have to wonder how much trouble could've been avoided if this was a low stakes release billed as "St. Vincent with Sleater-Kinney", similar to the nature Love This Giant was released under.

I'm just a bit irked that the only time he ever interacts with me to belittle and mock me. My mental health already sucks enough without smug Breakfast Club dude rubbing salt in my eyes every time he sees the opportunity.

Linkin Park were 100% a textbook example of "everything you hate about this is why I love it" and I'll be damned if that isn't a potent energy.

Does anyone have a fucking clue who anyone in this story other than CHVRCHES and Deftones are? Seems like a good enough reason to have top billing to me.

In hindsight, I probably should've guessed this wouldn't have translated as sarcastic in text.

Ten years ago this article would've been played for laughs and I am more than happy to see how we've developed as a society since then.

The production effects on the chorus of "No Drug Like Me" easily make it my favorite cut. I really appreciate an album where everyone has a different answer to what the best track was.

Lil Nas X is the ultimate argument in favor of the monogenre as an experimental tool in pop music. Look at the fruits it bore, people on a music website are actually agreeing with each other on something!

I accidentally read "Stupid Fish" as "Stupid Horse" and now I have to contemplate just how many parts of this site either love or hate 100 Gecs.

Has it been long enough that it's safe to say Dedicated is better than Emotion?

That cover is an all-time classic and I have no idea how anyone could've ever found the original listenable. Granted, that also applies to Sublime in general, but there's still an amazing amount of talent and craft that goes into making one of their songs not suck shit.

"Go argue that shit on the New York Times op-ed page. Here we have actual morals." This is exactly why I prefer Splinter over just about any other political news outlet.

What would you consider the faults of democratic socialism over a purely capitalist mindset? Going by your logic, assuming no changes in structural inequality will occur, you must have some critiques of the system itself to prefer a complete shill like Harris. After all, racism would still exist even if the system doesn't change, correct? Right now it just sounds like you're mostly comfortable with the status quo and are disturbed by anything more "radical" than the ineffective liberalism that led to Trump in the first place.

There's this really shitty mallcore screamo band called Black Veil Brides. Big with a certain set of kids, no idea why. Anyway, the vocalist sounds uncannily similar to Chad Kroeger, to the point where I like to imagine he's Kroeger's soul patch alter ego. And this got me thinking. And by the time I stopped thinking, it seemed very funny to imagine every musician has a secret soul patch career no one knows about. Cool cover, Mr. Glover. Where are you hiding the soul patch?

Sorry, I can't help myself, but I'll keep it relatively brief. Joe Rogan is utilized as a useful idiot by the far-right. He's a brainless numbskull that'll nod along to anything you say with little to know question. He is willing to platform (and therefore legitimize and implicitly endorse) scum fucks like Jordan Peterson, Sam Harris, Tim Pool, Johnathan Haidt, Eric Weinstein, and Alex Jones. We're talking about a talentless shock jock railing against "identity politics" and "PC culture" because he's offended by the idea that some people are offended and outraged over things his privilege allows him to remain unphased by. I'm aware his content isn't entirely political, but people are still listening to his Brietbart-lite political episodes in which a far-right talking head spews bigoted, conspiratorial bullshit. That he has one of the most popular podcasts in the country is a fucking disgrace.

Guess I'm getting into Tool now. Who does that leave left in the streaming war? Just Garth and Seger?

I'm not trying to say she's a human piece of shit like Lena Dunham, just that this interview sounds like a shitty Portlandia sketch.

Remember when Girls was critically lauded as a cutting satire before everyone found out Lena Dunham is the human equivalent of a dirty designer heroin needle? When Carrie Brownstein contributed to Portlandia, was that ever intended to be funny (because it almost never was) or were they just candidly filming her on an average day in her life?

How much promo was done for this album? I didn't hear about it until after it came out and I'm starting to feel lucky for it.

This is your regularly scheduled reminder that "Get a Grip" is the greatest male masturbation song ever written. I'm still debating the female one between "Party For One" and "I Touch Myself".
