  1. Re: And we miss Coachella, much like the deserts miss the rain.

    If Ride wasn't playing in NYC this June I'd be feeling a lot worse about skipping the festival than I am right now. For many reasons 2013 was the pinnacle for me, and I don't know that I'll make it...
  2. Re: “It’s very possible I’ll go back to Blur, it really is very possible”

    Replace "Blur" with "Arcade Fire" and you've pretty much described how I feel about everything they've released post-Funeral. Personally, I think the two songs we've heard so far are great. I may not...

    Blur finally posted an official link to the new track.

    Re: It's NBA time

    It can't feel good to get reamed by Amar'e Stoudemire. Nothing he said is wrong, but it's not like he's got the track record to give credible lessons on how to win basketball games.

  11. Re: “It’s very possible I’ll go back to Blur, it really is very possible”

    Jamie's enthusiasm notwithstanding, I think Gorillaz is still under wraps until next year. 2015 should be interesting, though, regardless of what Damon gets into.

    The Knicks and Nets are so fucking awful this year, all All-Star events scheduled for Madison Square Garden and Barclays Center should be moved to Rucker Park and the West Fourth Street courts.

    The new Charlatans album, Modern Nature, is streaming on the Guardian website and YouTube. It's quite good too, maybe their best since Telling Stories.
