April 22, 2017 on Shut Up, Dude: This Week’s Best And Worst Comments
i think they may have conflated the start of Walking with a Ghost ('out of my mind') and the title of Back in Your Head into 'Out of My Head'... which is unfortunate...

being a minor-league meme on a music blog was too much pressure for me and I collapsed in on myself like a dying star.

On a related note (as much as the song isn't her best) Rachel Bloom's Lemonade parody has its tone pitched way better than Schumer's in that 1 it's actually a parody and 2 it turns a bit of art about independent womanhood into a bit of comedy about being neurotic, needy, and co-dependent. Obviously I'm a white dude so I am entitled to very little opinion on what is offensive/in bad taste re:racism but i do think dn is right in that Schumer's parody doesn't seem to be actually parodying? like, what is she trying to say other than 'I am Amy Schumer and if I want to make a beyonce video then I will'? Why did she feel the world needed 'Amy Schumer Lip Syncs to Formation'?

In fairness I know some who like the production & the vocal hook of same love but they tend to just listen to the pt two thing the woman who sings it did (i'm blanking on her name)

January 23, 2016 on Iggy Azalea Responded To Macklemore’s “White Privilege II” And Talib Kweli’s Not Having It
One a related note, I don't know a single gay person (me included) who doesn't hate all of Macklemore's lyrics in Same Love. The message of that song is basically 'I think gays should probably be able to get married because my uncle is gay NO HOMO THO, I MYSELF HAVE BEEN A HETEROSEXUAL SINCE I CAME OUT OF THE WOMB.' I feel a little nauseous whenever someone calls it an anthem...

Go and read his wikipedia page; it was obviously written by a PR Guy/Family Member/Clementine himself. It makes me happy.

I didn't really like OK Cupid beyond its novelty value when it came out but I really like where Kitty is going and I'm really excited about her album dropping. This and Second Life are insanely good songs

He spends the whole video laughing about the fact he's 'never told anyone' about it and 'can't believe he's doing it' when he's obviously provided the info to the interviewer as a topic and has the song on his phone ready to show them. douche.

"Nobody believes... Pulp’s Different Class is the 6th best." Maybe it's a British thing, but Different Class is pretty much worshiped as a flawless masterpiece by a lot of people I know (including my best friend, my mum, my old music teacher, and my old boss)

But on the other hand, as he currently presents himself, he's doing a world of good for people who feel unable to place themselves within a strict label system. I know I have friends who have been attracted to both genders but don't feel that calling themselves bi or gay is accurate. It's doing a whole other group of people a world of good having somebody in the public spotlight is willing to say; 1. 'I am attracted to both genders, but one more than the other and neither particularly often' 2. 'My sexuality is complicated and i don't owe anyone a full explanation of it'. I personally think that is far more helpful for sexually confused people than having him give some rambling, contradictory, convoluted explanation of himself.

People don't talk enough about how fucking AMAZING this album is in every aspect. I find it really difficult to put into words how good Guyville is, and how much it means to me personally. 'Shatter' is one of my top 5 favourite songs of all time.

The fact that there are 6 X's on the front and 6 numbers on the record is probably no coincidence ------/------/------/936557/------/------ It's only going to be solvable once we have a sequence of 36 numbers Hopefully it'll be leading to a new BoC album though; if the countdown thing mentioned on Consequence of Sound is right then we've only got 259 days to wait!
