White people jokes are almost always hilarious—on this site and in general—and also the easiest way to quell the "I dunno, sometimes I feel like Stereogum is low-key racist toward POC" debate that pops up every ~6 weeks: "Cardi B is dumb." -3 ------"Wow...really? 'dumb'? What do you mean 'dumb'?" ------"Ugh, here we go again with the dog-whistles." ------"You're dumb." "Fuck white people." +70

Had no idea Kate McKinnon could play guitar like that. That little lick at 1:36 was legit.

How did Pete Davidson manage to completely fuck up his only line in the entire sketch? *already looking at cue card when they go live* *looks at cue card again* "Wait...Devon..." *looks at cue card again* "What if you..." *stops, pauses awkwardly, then looks back at Mikey* "...hit my chest and my heart stops?!" jfc

Thanx 4 the upvotes, but I was serious when I said I need help finding you people. Just now I clicked on what I thought was the dansolo's profile and saw this: http://i66.tinypic.com/2yjvc0i.jpg

“I’m truly hurt by the one-sided account that appeared in those song lyrics. I only wish the reporter had spoken to me first, so they would have heard I am neither a monkey on a string nor a doggie on a chain. I will defend myself against these false accusations of mailman-biting."

The image of that woman crying and running away has been burned into my brain since this story broke, so it's a relief to read wheels are in motion.

(I love and trust you, beans, but that doesn't mean I didn't immediately Google that paragraph to make sure it wasn't some elaborate troll.) Man...the one time I take the day off Stereogum, this happens. I'll hazard a guess this has nothing to do with me and everything to do with their partnership with RAINN. But who cares? All that matters is they sucked it up and did the right thing. Thank you for doing the right thing, Pitchfork. Better late than never. And thanks to everyone here at the 'Gum--commenters and staff--for putting up with my moral crusading these past few weeks. Even though most likely no one but us actually read all those comments, it's reassuring to know people care about important shit. Speaking of caring about important shit: I strongly encourage you all to donate what you can to RAINN (donate.rainn.org) and put yr money where my big stupid mouth is.

There's still the possibility of Charli weighing in, or even Lesbian Jesus again if she deigns to respond.

May 17, 2018 on Watch Beach House’s Stunning “Drunk In LA” Performance On Kimmel
I get mad when it's brazen. At least have the decency to change the key, throw in a relative minor or major, switch up the tempo—something. I brought it up in a previous post and got downvoted IIRC, but listen to the Rivers Cuomo episode of Song Exploder on "Summer Elaine and Drunk Dori" as he shamelessly explains how he ripped off "Walk Away Renée" by The Left Banke, including how he uses anagrams and a spreadsheet to trick himself into thinking he came up with all the melodies and chords he steals. And before anyone responds with "you can't, like, own a melody, bro," I urge you to listen to the whole podcast. It's embarrassing.

Even saying "marijuana" is racist now, so Mac is 2x problematic: https://splinternews.com/the-racist-strain-of-marijuana-1822511845 ...which makes you 1x problematic. You've been warned, BWF.

May 17, 2018 on Mac Miller Arrested For DUI, Hit And Run
Oh, I know. That's my point: Anything can happen when you're drunk behind the wheel, which is why he deserves as much hate for this as if he had actually hit someone. I'm not upset with anybody here for making jokes—most of my comments are jokes—just amazed the thread got ~20 comments in without anyone saying "fuck this clown and fuck anyone who drives drunk."

Since everyone else is taking the "oh, he just hit a pole" angle, I'll say it: It could've been a person. Thank God it was a pole. FUCK. DRUNK. DRIVING.
