i've always thought that once you release art into the world, it is essentially out of your hands and up for grabs. the history of art is full of reimaginings, retellings, repurposings, remixes, mashups, and so on. i think there is a gray area where an artist should have the right to say hey, don't use my work for advertising or political campaigning without my permission. but to tell another artist hey don't mess around with my work, has always struck me as arrogance. i didn't realize this was such an unpopular opinion. i thought remix culture/free culture/copyleft were still common ideas among internet nerds.

it would actually be rad if someone cared enough about my creative work to remix or sample it. the few things i've released to the public have always been licensed under creative commons. seriously though, this argument is at least 15 years old. i thought we had agreed that girl talk and danger mouse won.

ffs it's been 15 years since girl talk and the grey album, i can't believe people are still being dicks about samples.

forgot about the Black Thought EP, that was dope. i like Daytona overall, but Pusha just doesn't light my world on fire like he does for other people. his style seems very workmanlike to me, i prefer rappers with more weirdo personality. i forgot to mention Whack World, i thought that was a fun experiment as well.

a lot of the beats on Invasion of Privacy sound like distorted, mutant versions of the castle and haunted house levels from SNES era Mario. "Money Bag" especially has such a weird beat, i love it.

Disagree. She's a competent rapper with some great beat selection. Her punchlines are often funny, she doesn't mumble or do auto-tuned sing-song, and her flow is pretty tight. In a weak ass year for hip-hop, the only albums other than hers that I've really enjoyed are Milo and Jpegmafia, who are obviously in a completely different category. Tha Carter V was fun too.

i gotta be honest, i love KKB but i feel like they went from being an awesome weirdo-pop band to being a pretty good dream-pop band

October 16, 2018 on The Number Ones: The Doors’ “Light My Fire”
nothing sadder than dudes (a grown-ass man, in this case) who confuse liking the same media for a genuine emotional connection. my girlfriend doesn't care about most of the weirdo music i listen to, tolerates metal only because of her infinite patience, doesn't like or care about movies at all, doesn't really read literature, and so on. but she is the love of my life because none of that shit actually matters. it's just stuff i like. she likes different stuff, which is obviously fine because i am a grownup.

October 14, 2018 on Ryan Adams Apologizes For Comparing Mandy Moore To Soggy Cardboard
the new MWY album is a monster. anyone who enjoys wordy, introspective post-hardcore should give it a listen. i loved Pale Horses but they really cover a lot of different ground on this one. i get the feeling that Tom is the resident punk/hardcore guy and MWY is too artsy for him. then again, Fucked Up is plenty artsy so who knows. speaking of bands ignored by Stereogum, the new Joy Formidable is also very good! they're back to Zeppelin-sized riffs and proggy maximalism after the relatively streamlined Hitch. another album that covers a lot of ground stylistically.

I thought so too until the first time I took mushrooms and heard Communication Breakdown

I do love that the top comment ended on a White Lung reference. Paradise was my 2016 AOTY. There are no drums better than d-beat drums. Can't wait for a new one.

something can be problematic and awesome at the same time. that's not inconsistency, that's nuance.

this is all true but it is also true that conscious rap is corny as hell

if you need to convince a person to have sex with you, you should not have sex with that person. "I've had sex I didn't want to have to keep a relationship going. I consented. The person I was with wasn't forcing me to do anything. But yes, I felt like if we didn't have sex, the relationship would likely end. That was a form of pressure on me. But I wanted the relationship." you just described an abusive relationship. i'm sorry that that happened to you. "Saying, "come on you know you want to" is not abuse." it absolutely is abuse, holy shit

I wan to like this more, the beats and flows are all nuts, but all of Joba's suicide talk on this one is really a bit much

yes, dude. emotional manipulation is abusive. look up literally any article about "signs you are in an abusive relationship" and "pressures you into sex" will be near the top of the list. i'm not saying that's necessarily what happened in this situation. as i said above, we don't really know the details- to what extent was he aggressive in his pursuit, etc- but to categorically deny that verbal pressure alone can be abusive is insane.

i don't know, man. i think repeatedly telling your boss that you want to have sex with her, especially after she has expressed disinterest, could definitely constitute abusive behavior, and certainty constitutes workplace sexual harassment, even if you are her subordinate. but we might be getting stuck on the semantics of "abuse" vs "harassment" vs "misconduct" here.

yikes, dude. you know that verbally pressuring someone into sex is widely considered abusive behavior, right? like, that's not even remotely up for debate? "lol have more willpower" is a hell of a take though.

If he indeed pressured her into cheating on her boyfriend, and continued to pursue her even after she said no, that is indeed skeevy behavior, though perhaps not so egregious that it requires a statement, mediation, and the whole song & dance. But we don't know the details, and all in all it seems like the sort of thing that should have been hashed out in private.

i have no idea how some of y'all were complaining recently that this has been a weak year for music, i've added 30 albums to my Spotify library this month alone and most of them are very good! and i've still got Fucked Up, High on Fire, Kurt Vile, Mewithoutyou, Cloud Nothings, Robyn, J Mascis, and Adrienne Lenker to look forward to. also why did no one tell me the Joy Formidable were releasing a new one this week? did we stop caring because Hitch was boring? the new songs are good!

even though I was full-on mallgoth at this point (as I recounted in the Mechanical Animals 20 year anniversary comments), I had a soft spot for "Iris" because I was secretly a huge sap who just wanted to be understoooooooooooood
