1. You stan her music. 2. You like to drag (insult, bully) her. Stands to reason you also like to see others insult and bully her. 3. You want her to learn from being bullied and insulted by thousands of strangers and the media. That is twisted and poisonous. Very Online Concerned People love to educate others, but it's nice to see someone own up to enjoying making someone's life miserable and show that that is the primary motivation in these pile ons. It's worth noting that I don't really care about her music - unlike you, I'm not a stan for her (or anyone).
The harmonized guitars tricking the listener into thinking that they're taking the second chorus is genius and makes the actual chorus that much more powerful. The end has another fake out: it seems like the chorus will come back one more time, but the song just drifts away.
Some people are too ill to "own their shit." It's one of the unfortunate side effects of mental illness. Seems like a lot of people only have compassion for the ill if they're sick in a way that they're comfortable with. It's almost like they're more interested in seeming like they're compassionate so people think they're good than they are in actually being compassionate and doing the work required to deal the contradictions.
There's a difference between working within a genre and cultural appropriation. Winwood clearly does the former.
It seems like Tom's grading of 80s cheese has a lot to do with who made the song. Were they around in the 60s? Minus 1 point. Are they British? Minus 2. Did they ever play the blues? Minus 1.
Tom would probably have agreed with you if Phil Collins' name was on the sleeve.
Bands as derivative as Chvrches usually start strong and fade away and it looks like the same thing will happen to them. Their prospects are even worse since their retro style was also The Cool Sound of the Moment. Bands with one of those traits are cursed. Bands with both are damned.
Hiring a musician with "a take" on jazz would be terrible regardless of their race. Reznor & Ross' jazz happens to be garbage. So does the idea that the race of the composer of the score correspond to the race of the main character.
It bums me out when I hear Bono sing songs that he recorded in his prime. His voice is 10 percent of what it was. He's a living anti-smoking PSA.
Nah, the CIA would have fucked it up like they do everything else.
He should definitely not be embraced at the moment, and successful people with addiction or mental health issues are often enabled, with disastrous consequences. Who knows how Mel (Fucking Asshole) Gibson would have turned out had the makers of Lethal Weapon not turned a blind eye to his downing a six pack for breakfast. His alcoholism was tolerated and it shouldn't have been, not least because it fuelled some abhorrent behaviour in his private life. Shia needs to go away, maybe go to jail and get treatment so he doesn't kill himself or someone else. Then, maybe, give acting a shot. Very, very few people are irredeemable and (almost) everyone deserves a few shots live properly & succeed.
Nobody said anybody has a right to be famous. People have the right to rehabilitation though, and it's not fair to demand that an actor cease to be an actor because of monstrous behaviour when we don't demand that of people in other professions. I think you'd be appalled if criminals were prevented from trying to a get a job in their field upon release. It would be a fucked up and dangerous road for society to take. If he doesn't get treatment and change his horrible ways then he can go fuck himself, of course. Rehabilitation > Punishment
It doesn't matter that it's an empty beach: he could have covid and could have encountered someone and given it to them. He's too old to be acting like such a fucking baby.
If he takes treatment for his disease and mental illness seriously there is no reason why he shouldn't be able to have an acting career. As a society, we can't say "addiction is a disease and addicts need our sympathy" while also saying that they should be exiled. The second sentiment undercuts the first, and successful addicts are no less deserving of compassion than addicts who live on the street. Good on FKA for suing him.
Impossible. The Stones can't be cast.
In response to criticism from social service agencies, he said "it's not like they can get pregnant."
I think it's a better example kf Matador being a good label that knows what it's doing. Groove Denied is sub par, and Sparkle Hard is wonderful. They still released Groove Denied too, and Malkmus' folky genre exercise this year. The Cat Power thing is something I take with a grain of salt. She's not terribly reliable.
Or he's a literate adult who's mature enough to understand that characters in fiction occasionally use objectionable language. Which isn't to say the song should be on the radio - it shouldn't, for the same reason that the Wire shouldn't be on NBC at 4 pm on weekdays. If it is gonna be played, just garble the offending word like they do with other songs that have cursing.
I don't know, he's made some pretty uncommercial moves. He basically spent the first half of the 70s releasing stoned flights of fancy that may or may not have been completed. Sgt Pepper & Magical Mystery Tour were also pretty uncommercial moves!
