Oh, it'll get murdered with delicious alacrity. Going after a particularly bad record is our duty. I was talking about attacks based solely on an empty, "ugh, you kids these days; our music was relevant, and yours is not..." type of argument.
When I hit my fifteenth brick wall, friend washingtonknight, I'll remember this. Much, much gratitude for the pep talk.
“... if we habitually down voted and booed new music...” Speaking as someone who has spent a perhaps unhealthy amount of time here... I can’t recall that this has ever happened. Not once. If you are older, you remember the thrill of having a world of music during your youth. It’s a gift. And you are happy for the younger people, as they experience the same rush. Speaking for myself, that’s it in a nutshell.

I've been trying to do some songwriting over the past few weeks. I actually had a brief glimmer of a moment this weekend, where I thought something I had might not be so bad after all. And then later that day I heard "Driver's License," followed by "Kyoto," and then something equally astounding by Maggie Rogers. Clearly, the universe is saying, "Hey, um, maybe just go back to making crosswords and graphic bits, m'kay?" After all this time, I'm so lucky to call popular music a "friend" since the 60's, and that absolutely includes some of what is popular today. Dismissing art, based solely on the date that it was created, is just baffling to me.
You have my deepest respect for this, Brigita. Clearly, you are on the precipice of an enormous crossroads.
Today I learned that I own neckties older than dothestrand.
Hi, stereodumb. A few things: - Good welcome to The Number Ones Comment Section. A requisite upvote for you, just for taking the plunge. - Assuming that anyone actually cares about the weekly SUD countdown: You seem to suggest that because the TNOCS comments frequently have “big numbers,” this means that they should be curated and /or segregated. Why? If any comment at the Stereogum site garners a particularly large response, why should its source be relevant? In the same way that this place is not superior to other ‘gum sections, it isn’t inferior, either. - I’d suggest that if you like music in any context and remember hearing it, then you get to call yourself a “music historian.” I'll wager that you are one, too. Sure, some here are more eloquent “rememberers” than others, but that’s sort of how life works. We all have skillsets that have highlights and lowlights. It’s all good. Everyone gets to toss in whatever ingredients they have into our virtual pot of stone soup. And then have a taste to see how it came out. - For whatever reasons, this place has evolved into, for lack of a fancier term, a community. It has no moderation, no policing, and no censorship, other than what Lapatine and Breihan would decide to squash, because, well, it's their ball. And since we seem to be allowed to keep ambling along in the way we do, it must be OK with them. - “longwinded comments that aren't very interesting or funny...” Just like 98% of the comments here: a valued opinion. Some would agree with you, others would not. Both takes are OK. - In closing, do you like this small-business, independent, non-corporate website? Do you want it to be successful and keep on keeping on, without having to crowdfund, or change its no-paywall policy? I'll guess that we have at least this in common. Having popular pages that get gazoodles of clicks helps to make that happen. So, that said... what do you think of the Debbie Gibson's record?
"Ooh.. Ahh..." We were specifically warned NOT to sing along with that part at the 7th grade CYO dance. If the nuns could have time-traveled 50 years to the future to hear "WAP..." The mind boggles.
Again, I'm really sorry about that, blu_cheez. It was all a big misunderstanding. You were supposed to be on the "expired car warranty" call-list.
Glad that you posted this, 2nahelper. It's show-bizzy and corny, but it's also really wholesome. You immediately like these people, as they recall and celebrate their collective heydays together.
Here's how old I am, RJ: I thought for a split second that you had posted the Daddy Dewdrop record.
Thank you! And to anyone that ever reaches out to me via PM: You can ask anyone here that has done so, and they will confirm that your privacy is my rule # 1.

That's a high compliment, young scribe. Please tell Momma 'thank you' and hello from me.
