Ohmygod, yes, "Pull My Hair." Letting Off the Happiness deserves more love.

But is there a special place for women who don't help other women who don't help other women, or does it all cancel itself out? Seems like we're running out of room in hell lately. Good thing zombie stories are so popular these days.

It's just like that time Lena Dunham said "Anyone who thinks Taylor Swift isn’t good for the girl cause has to be crazy, because any woman who’s dominating the charts, the creative director of her own empire, and made whatever millions of dollars last year is only lifting us up." EVERY GIRL WHO HAS EVER DONE ANYTHING IS GREAT, NO MORE QUESTIONS.

As an Oklahoman and a Flaming Lips fan, I really want to love Wayne Coyne, but he has NOT been doing himself any favors lately. He's spent practically all of 2012 being a grade-A asshole.

November 20, 2012 on Wayne Coyne Apparently Brought A Grenade To The Airport
There's this piece in the New Yorker recently talking about how Hank catching Walt would be a triumph. Knowing Hank, I disagree with that completely. It would absolutely destroy him knowing that the criminal entity that has been plaguing him for an entire year has been right under his nose the whole time, and someone he thought he could trust. I think Hank's (hopefully diminishing) lack of suspicion is one of the absolute most interesting things about the show. Hank loves his brother-in-law, and maybe the thought that he was Heisenberg has crossed his mind, but he'd immediately shake it off being like, "No, that's crazy, I know him better than that." He's a good person who's put too much faith in someone close to him.

Half measures were absolutely Mike's undoing. If there was any key lesson we can apply from that speech to this season, it's that Mike is a good person who very frequently just had to do his job and not think too much about other people while undertaking it. He probably was so serious about it because of his respect for Gus, but he clearly had none for Walt, so the fastidiousness that was previously his trademark went down and more or less got him killed.

This season's greatest tragedy is that Mike didn't kill Walt when he had the chance. And he had so many chances. That whole "we're going to be there when he slips up" thing from last week was the most unfortunate foreshadowing. Poor guy's been slipping up all season. He was just an old man who wanted to be done with the outlaw life.

Zola Jesus has been so much fun to watch lately that I'm even more excited to see where she goes next than I normally am. I mean, she just did an interview with The-Dream. THE-DREAM!

Yeah, I thought it was really sweet, considering Sally should've been in so much trouble, but Betty seemed so shocked that her daughter actually needed her that all the water went under the bridge. It reminded me a lot of similar interactions with my own mother, so it touched me on a personal level.

I figured it was going to be "Common People." I wanna write academic essays on how fantastic a pop song that is.

That's definitely true, but I mean underrated in the sense where less people know who Damo Suzuki is than who Thom Yorke is. They're not, like, worshipped in the sense that a lot of Can-inspired bands are.

MORE PEOPLE SHOULD CARE ABOUT THIS THAN DO. A lot of people's all-time faves would not dream of existing without Can. Sometimes I cry and think about how underrated they are.

Doesn't it sample The Stooges pretty heavily too? Sounds like a bizarre sequel to "1969".

THIS REVIEW IS CORRECT. NME gave the album a 4/10 and I thought I was gonna choke a bitch. But they're NME. So.
