Comments from James Joseph Watson

Would be happier is Lateralus was the final album and they just broke up in 2001. Not into 10,000 days and all this jerking around for a follow up is just bogus..... all of that aside, TOOL is one of my favorite bands. womp womp

Buying physical copies of music is cool no matter what the format is. Streaming seems cheap to me? I still burn cds if a physical version isnt available... just separates one album from the other and lets it stand alone as the piece of music it is....

Freakshow is a HUGE album of my childhood, I stopped getting into their stuff after neon ballroom, but this... This is surprisingly really great! Not really my thing but god for him!

I agree, the hype for this group is insane and honestly the singer had me interested with the stage presence, but this song is very bland. I'll give the album a listen though, so the enthusiasm has carried them that far for me at least.

I also own this lunchbox, never got super into any of the records after Iowa, but both S/T and Iowa are in my car and have been for a long time.

Why is this considered "trolling" and not just like him being interviewed and talking about wild shit?

Yea not mention Grimes believes vegans can eat ice cream whenever they want just because you know, why not? seriously fuck Grimes, Visions is a sweet record sure, but "go" and recently scrapping a brand new album that "sucked" ugh shes wack. All I see is POM POM on the horizon and its looking really killer.

haha Ariels discography is MASSIVE- and a large portion of his output is fuckin timeless, inspiring and ridiculously catchy. Ray Of Light, Beautiful Stranger... MDNA... Yes she needs a real songwriter like Ariel to give her musical downfall some flavor, some soul seasoning. For real.

Thus band sucks and that whole thing was pretty fuckin stupid... I fuckin hate crowd surfing, it sucks to get crushed by a stranger.... BUT thats the aggressive atmosphere of a punk/metal show, its to be expected, been that way for a loooooooong time. So yeah, don't be a bitch about it, play your set and rock out, the crowd will do the same. Always thought it was funny when At The Drive in would freak out about moshing and crowd surfing and then BUG OUT crazy on stage and expect the crowd to not react and go wild.

September 26, 2014 on Joyce Manor Ignite Punk Scene Controversy With Anti-Stagediving Stance
I think all these comments about it being over priced are weird. I live in NYC and buy a lot of music from many different shops. The prices aren't very different form Urban Outfitters to Other Music, Kims, Rough Trade, or Earwax. Like literally maybe 2 dollar differences, and I've found titles in Urban I would have never found in the other stores...

Yikes, they were my favorite performance at Roo this year, setlist was really great, and I mean I wanted to see intense visuals from their wacky stage shows and got nothing short of that... Bonnaroo could be widely considered a "cliché" music festival... The lips are a psychedelic rock band so maybe you would have had a better time at Frank Oceans set... Def not disappointed. No disses to Frank, he rules too.

It was way to familiar sounding haha, weird to try to freshen up some already released material, Nehru is sweet on this track for sure but I was hoping for something totally new, gotta scope the rest of the release

July 7, 2014 on DOOM & Bishop Nehru Are NehruvianDOOM; Watch Their First Video
well... I actually still really like Wayne and the Lips... The Miley "friendship" + Collabs, not so much... This "film" I didn't hate at all, short enough for me watch, enjoy its wackiness and move on, the main issue I have is just the amount of collaborations the Lips do... I like their albums, but nothing with "fwends" ever really gets me going, even their collab with Lightening Bolt wasn't super epic. I just feel like the Lips need to go be hermits for a few years somewhere far away and come back with another classic... but the Wayne hate is lame, hes a kick ass front man for a kick ass band and who he affiliates himself with shouldn't be the end of the road for his fans. Just put on Soft Bulletin and realize why they rule and move on, pay these "stunts" or projects and cover albums no mind, they have too much good music to write them off as a shitty band now. and THE TERROR rules, so for me they havnt fallen off just yet... ALSO... Electric Wurms sounds promising from whats out, so, less hate on the Lips and Wayne huh? maybe? anyone?

I mean Kliph is a sweet drummer, Wayne is a great frontman, this situation sucks but doesn't make me dislike Wayne, The albums speak for themselves and I will absolutely look forward to new Lips stuff even if Kliph isn't involved- And to speak the comments above about the Lips being a money hungry stunt band, I agree with whoever brought up The Terror... That album doesn't scream accessibility at all, it doesn't contain a "happy" or "dark horse" in any sense The whole Miley, Kesha, etc... gimmick I cant speak on, I'm with Kliph on that, worst collab decisions, especially when chosen over DEERHOOF. Oh the crazy world of rock n rollers...

I'm obviously late but would like to add a bit just because... When you say that Hip-Hop is just looping beats and samples and that is all kanye/hip-hop artists do is extremely untrue and just overlooking the art that is music making/producing. Kanye over almost any Hip-Hop artist is on his "god" level, so to speak, because he doesnt just take a sample and loop it- the instrumentation on his albums is fucking incredible! now it may not be kanye himself shredding up a guitar and playing sweet-sweet violins and horn sections- but the dude is def a wizard on the keys/synths/etc... and wouldnt have a single lick played on his album that he didnt craft at least the idea of, whether it was based on an existing riff or not, his albums and hundreds of other hi-hop albums incorporate more instrumentation than some full band recordings... just sayin- Kanye is good, really good, whatever he says/does in the public eye can make him look like this, or that, but he's still really, really good. One of the best IMO. I think about if
