The stupidity is strong in this one.
Right. I'll stick to my own music website where I write long-form reviews which get posted by the bands and people don't seem to argue with what I say.
My point being: your math is off. The equation is "stupidity" = "stupidity". QED.
Is this where we talk about Vampire Weekend? Ok, good. Because they are doing an AMA right now and it is absolutely hilarious.
They (finally) BNTed a song from Trouble Will Find Me

RAM review = surprisingly persuasive & fun to read
best question and answer ever:
Everyone puts a lot of focus on Ezra's lyrics, dissecting them and asking for the meaning behind them. But I need to know what Chris T is saying on these songs.
Chris T, on "Run" you drum "Boom bap bap boom bap bap, tom-ta-ta-tom-ta-ta-tom." Is this an allusion to your childhood? Some have said it's a comment on American consumerism, but I frankly don't see it.
Love your stuff, guys. Thanks for everything.
Hi Alex512, great question. You're close. What I'm trying to communicate in "Run" is actually a continuation of my investigation of Elizabethan British economic infrastructure that I began on "Oxford Comma" on the first record. I know the subject matter is a litte arcane, but sometimes by focusing on smaller details we can actually see the bigger picture
