The law misses a shit-ton of actual rape cases, so fuck that. Sometimes the court of pubic opinion needs to be judge and jury.

Man I have to disagree. Currents is his weakest by a tiny hair, though you're probably right about "Let It Happen" being his best song.

I love the cinematic sound of "Actor," and I saw her on tour with Andrew Bird for that album, so that might have something to do with it. As far as each album being a unique sonic, visual and thematic re-incarnation, I can certainly see the thematic and visual changes from Strange Mercy to St. Vincent but not so much the sonic reincarnation.

"Depending on whom you ask, Eminem’s freestyle about Trump at the BET Hip-Hop Awards was either extremely necessary or extremely cringeworthy — or maybe both." "It was trash"--Vince Staples

Ok, so what about any of these issues you've outlined means Trump should get the support of working class white voters? I just don't comprehend this notion of "Hey, I'm angry, things aren't perfect -- so let's fuck everyone over." Trump doesn't care about these voters, he only cares about screwing over some of the same people who working class white voters see as taking what is rightfully theirs. Your whole reasoning reminds me of a friend of mine who hates Obamacare and loves Trump because she personally lost her subsidy because she started earning too much. Rather than push for a fix for Obamacare or single payer, she supported the man who wants to rip healthcare away from tens of millions. It won't help her, but hey! At least she's gets to play the victim while slamming the door on other people looking for a hand up!

"Actor" is my favorite of hers. (Excluding this one because I've ibly heard it once so far.) I'd definitely recommend giving it another listen.

I saw Petty this year as well, the day before seeing Spoon. (Those were two pretty damn awesome days.)

Even if Caepernick wasn't hired because of his kneeling during the anthem, wouldn't that be allowed? I don't see as how any NFL owner who would refuse to hire him did anything wrong.

This is an awesome and novel idea, but certainly more of a collector's item than something that will actually get much use. Those grooves would be destroyed so quickly.

Given how tight she's gotten with her band on the road these past couple years, I bet "Special" could be even better live.

Or maybe just another mid-size label with a similar good distribution deal? Regardless, she's so damn good that I think this will be a worthy addition to her catalogue.

No need to apologize, I don't think anyone blamed this on his being Belgian. Pretty sure there are shitty misogynists who harass women across the entire globe, it's certainly not confined to (or particularly worse in) Belgium.

You guys REALLY don't like Ariel Pink. Mad shade, no pe or AOTW, terse write-up that tells us nothing about the music other than a (probably tongue-in-cheek) quote.

Yeah, but punching neo-Nazis here in the U.S. doesn't eliminate them as like those weapons did in WWII. As Robert Reich said in a post earlier today, violence against the far right turns them into victims and furthers the mainstreaming of far-right ideologies when they gain sympathy as a result.
