Find Me On:
There are very few spontaneous moments left on television in general. So when angry-Kanye performs live on a show he hates, you know i’ll have my popcorn ready.
1. For some personality types, “putting yourself out there” is a difficult thing to do. For her it’s 24/7 obsession; so she gets no props there.
2. Pioneering is quite literally defined as being first.
3. She does not own up to anything.
4. Your copious spelling/grammar mistakes make it hard to take you seriously.
Am I mistaken or is MGMT getting better? what a great track..
In the same situation as choosing between Weezer’s Blue Album and Pinkerton, or Bowie’s Low and Station to Station, Fear of Music and Remain in Light are equal in value. Can’t decide!
absolutely. I got goosebumps at that strokes show.
Though I love Berlin, I am straight baffled at the inclusion of “The Kids”. Almost any other song on that album would’ve been a better choice.
so..good for them i guess?
(that throwback might be too stale, ‘gum in-jokes should be freshness-dated)
to think Glee watchers will somehow break into Kid A is beyond ludicrous
I realize not a lot of time has passed to put The Next Day in perspective. But it’s GOTTA be better than Let’s Dance! right? Plus, I could go on at length about how Diamond Dogs is better than Young Americans.
other than that bitchy-ness, great, well-written piece! (oh, and Ziggy isn’t no. 1; no way, no how)
should’ve said “just like with Angles..”
As with Angles, loved half of it, disregarded the rest. I look at it this way, at least I got 6-7 good new Strokes songs! 50/50, Welcome to Japan, 80′s Comedown Machine, Partners in Crime were great (btw, loved that last track, kinda reminded me of some of the noodling on Blur’s 13)
1. Why do the Strokes seem so intent on making video game music?
2. Why can’t they do a decent guitar solo anymore?
me too. not sure why that was downvoted.
Timberlake is one of the few pop singers who’s just as good of a dancer as his back-up dancers.
by the way, i googled Ben Gibbard 2013 and he appears to look just about the same today hair-wise as he did back then. Sure he’s gone through different length phases and glasses on/off phases, but i was unsure why a wig was even necessary. I thought the sketch was hilarious, but it didn’t add to the accuracy or humor for me. It just caused a distraction and took me out of the moment for a sec. Just like the weird prosthetic Joseph Gordon-Levitt wore in Looper (great movie, btw). I see what they were trying to do, but I felt it was unnecessary and distracting. Ben Gibbard didn’t do any Bowie-esque transformations in the last 10 years as far as I’m concerned.
Concerning my original comment, yeah i was kinda goofin around cuz the fact that he was wearing a wig was so distracting in the video.
Concerning all comments made in reply to my original comment AND the comment above:
There was this show a few years back called “Arrested Development”. I really, really suggest you watch it.
awww editors choice! I feel so proud, it put a smile on my face…….but getting back to it, I wish good luck to Ben Gibbard and his Alopecia (and I’d appreciate it if we could all be sensitive to it)
pretty catchy track, it would make one hell of a Folgers jingle
serious question: is ben gibbard wearing a wig?
I feel like Palmer means well but SNEAKERS GET DIRTY..CONVERSE…whoops sorry about that…what was I saying again?
wow, a new album from David Bowie AND Iggy and the Stooges..what is it? 1973? it’s gonna be a great year! That has nothing to do with this weeks comments but i was so excited I had to say it somewhere.
Ya know, you can be under 30 and still “get” this video, including the “The Man Who Fell to Earth” reference.
Iver, age 25
this is definitely my “comment of the week”
Is anyone else loving that he used Devo to piss off Bieber fans? That’s what made this story awesome to me.
