September 23, 2017 on Hear A Clip From El-P’s “Rejected” Blade Runner 2049 Trailer Score
Nah it's hilarious. They've called themselves that since 2000. I like to throw it in there when talking about them just to mix it up. It's honestly just as good a band name as their full name.

Finally spinning the new godspeed you! black emperor album and I still have the last song to go. It's already tops. Last night I spent three hours going over their discography and posted it to blocland. It's one ot those rare pieces where I wrote it because I felt I had to given my steadfast respect for God's Pee. However, I was up late enough to listen to The Horrors. Let's just say if I hadn't already cleared the weekend playlist, "Ghost" would've been my pick. Expect it next week.

More importantly, thank you Tom for altering the quote to drive traffic numbers up enough to get us both in the top 3.

September 21, 2017 on Marilyn Manson: “Columbine Destroyed My Entire Career”
Looks like a misquote to me. Specifying the "Columbine era" versus the actual shooting is a slight but important distinction. Honestly my first reaction was that 9/11 probably had a more profound effect on his shtick. When Americans realized there was something real to fear, sort of diminishes the importance of a naked man in colored contacts yelling into a microphone. Same goes for nu-metal.

If you read a news story about each of them back to back, it's basically a reality now.

It blows my mind to this day as Dan is sharing a lot of behind the scenes information on Instagram, reminding everyone how he was previously a graphic designer so he takes the album artwork super seriously. Not sure what happened with Free Your Mind. But the album still slays. There's a reason it was THAT album that spawned the [REDACTED] joke.

Not much Ariel love from the writers of this site. I will say that I had an album listen last night and it clicked for me. Ariel's albums rarely if ever make sense on first listens. Takes times for his weird melodies to worm into your brain. But the whole pacing on Dedicated To Bobby Jameson is lovely. I literally squeeled when I saw "Another Weekend" was the first track on the B-Side, which meant "Time To Live" ends the A-side. Perfect spot to split the album.

I know AOTW is for highlighting an album that may be overlooked, but the fact you reference God's Pee first in the opening paragraph is telling to who the real winner is. BTW went back and revisited 'Asunder, Sweet and Other Distress' the other day and it's still top tier God's Pee. Forgot about the infinite vinyl drone loop at the end of "Lambs' Breath". Reminded me why I have abstained from the NPR stream as listening to God's Pee on vinyl is THE way to listen to them. Their vinyl packaging has been second to none since their first album in the late 90s came with a penny that had been smashed on train tracks... not even mentioning the fact that the "Infiniti" part of F#A#Infiniti is a reference to the infinite drone loop at the end of "String Loop Manufactured During Downpour..." I LOVE THIS BAND OKAY GEEZ YA GOT ME.

I'm very excited for the new Horrors. I wanted to love Luminous but it just didn't click. Given, it was already a tough order to find a way to top Primary Colours and Skying The songs I've heard from V are promising and here's to hoping it clicks.

Yeah good for them for sticking around this long. I remember having a great time when they opened for The Futureheads in 2005.

Free Your Mind had a lame ass album cover but trust it contained some of the best Cut Copy songs to date on it. "Let Me Show You Love" is evidence enough of how they haven't stopped improving over the years. Excited to hear Haikus.

"...but they sound too obvious, too over the top for the beauty and chaos of the episode..." When Steven Deusner thinks he knows better than David Lynch.

I think he's talking about the entire nuke episode, referencing it as a moment of the entire season.

Their faithful cover of Joy Division's "Shadowplay" remains a favorite of mine.
