November 5, 2018 on The Queen Covers: 8 Worthy Tributes To Freddie Mercury & Co.
Idk where we are in the hype/backlash/reappraisal cycle for Girl Talk, but those three albums were fun as hell and I could go for another one.

Time zones! It's all the time zones! In which case, Mr. Dupree turns these things around very quickly.

Not to be a dick about it, but your comment went up at 6:02pm. Wayne's website doesn't appear to have a precise timestamp, but he tweeted a link to his post ... at 3:11pm (https://twitter.com/WayneDupreeShow/status/1057394675324280834). ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Wait wait wait. So you're telling me that you met some *teenagers* who *don't like their homelife* but *do* enjoy drugs and alcohol??? I dunno man, that sounds pretty fucking crazy. On a more serious note, I assume "intentionally harming themselves" refers to something like cutting? In which case, honestly, you can go fuck yourself with your condescending "they loved doing it" horseshit.

November 1, 2018 on Lil Peep – “Runaway” Video
I would also speculate that there's an element of "the only good thing to come out of my son's death is the connection he made to his fans through his music, so I want to maintain that connection by releasing more of his music." I don't think there are many, if any, kids who become depressed by listening to Lil Peep. There may, of course, be some depressed kids who, through Lil Peep's music and the "scene" of which he was a part, are drawn to deal with their depression in harmful ways. But I suspect that there are even more depressed kids who listen to this and are comforted by it. For whom music like this is cathartic, and for whom the simple knowledge that someone else feels the same way they do is an immeasurable consolation. I suspect that it's this group who has reached out to Peep's mom the most since his death, and that it's this group for whom she wants to release this music.

The Slate article doesn't seem to be talking about "standards" in that sense, but rather as "tracks from the past 25 years [that] we’ll still be dancing and singing along to for the next 100 years."

Prisoners are denied many things, but “everyday monotony” is definitely not one of them. But yes, if the state confiscates your basic liberty by imprisoning you, then I think it should also be obligated to pay to house and feed you. If the state feels that it’s not worth paying those fees to imprison a particular person, then it shouldn’t imprison them at all. That said, there is a difference between allowing a prison to require prisoners to work so long as it applies the value of their labor to their upkeep and returns the balance to them, and allowing a prison to profit from the labor of prisoners. The latter would definitely be eliminated by banning involuntary servitude of prisoners, but I’m not entirely sure that the former would be.

*whispers* The 13th amendment really should be amended to protect prisoners from involuntary servitude, though.

You've said it twice now, and it's a minor detail, but Cardi did not get into a fight at the Met. The Nicki thing happened at a Fashion Week party.

I don't know where you're getting your information, but per the criminal complaint filed against him, in one of the three videos for which he was charged, “the child engages in oral sexual intercourse with the separately charged defendant Taquan Anderson, while the defendant, Daniel Hernandez, stands behind the child making a thrusting motion with his pelvis and smacking her on her buttocks. The child is nude in the video.” (source: https://jezebel.com/details-in-child-sex-complaint-against-rapper-6ix9ine-c-1821245294) This isn't some complicated he-said, she-said scenario. The videos exist. The police and courts have them. The US court system may be fucked, but that doesn't mean that every person who pleas guilty is actually innocent. This guy really definitely did film and appear in child pornography.

I'm not saying the cops are definitely lying, but "bumped a squad car" seems like a, uh, pretty convenient excuse to search a vehicle. Also the cops are definitely lying.

August 17, 2018 on Young Thug Reportedly Arrested At Dave & Buster’s During Birthday Listening Party
Here Comes Your Man is too good for any reasonably faithful cover to be *bad*, per se, but none of the things that Yorn does differently than the Pixies improves the song. I give this a strong "the best thing about this cover is that it reminds you to listen to the original."

The only imperfect thing about Mad Max: Fury Road was that they didn't get Matt Pike to write the riffs for that guitar dude.

August 1, 2018 on Robyn – “Missing U”
Fun fact: Stump does write some of the lyrics. He wrote most of Take This To Your Grave, for example. You can tell which songs he wrote because they makes sense (see e.g. Grand Theft Autumn). Wentz's songs don't make sense, because he basically keeps a journal of one-liners and whatnot that they pull lyrics from to fit the music. So his songs seem like stitched-together one-liners that don't make any sense together because that's what they are. In related news, I know Too Much about this band.

August 1, 2018 on Good Morning, Here’s Fall Out Boy’s Patrick Stump Covering “No Tears Left To Cry”
Back in the glory days of file sharing, I came across a huge and delightful compilation of covers by Belle and Sebastian. This was one of my favorites. If this list is correct, though, they were even more prolific coverers than I thought. https://www.setlist.fm/stats/covers/belle-and-sebastian-7bd6f25c.html

I'm not sure if he's still touring, but if he is, and he comes to your town, I cannot recommend going highly enough. I caught one of his shows earlier this year, and it was the most enjoyable show I'd been to in years. A complete and thorough delight.
