This is so great:
It apparently closed in 2012.
I am shocked -- shocked! -- that he's reached the negative karma cap within two months' time.
I think we're all in agreement that this means . . . it's possible.
President Trump will not have had time to build the wall by then, so it will be ok.
Oh my god, the last refuge of scoundrels: "Your objections to my frivolous bullshit are frivolous. As a way of moving past your frivolity, please read about a tragedy that I'm now feigning concern...
Just happy that new M83 music is likely on its way.
I think most people can name exactly two Oingo Boingo songs. I'm sure plenty of people would want to see their set, but it wouldn't be anywhere close to a headlining or subheadling set.
Just those specific tracks? Weird. It's not like there would be different songwriters or copyright holders for those specific tracks.
A lawyer friend sat across from Justice Scalia on an international commercial flight from Zurich to DC a year or so ago. He helped Scalia stow his carry on, which Scalia said was heavy because "it...
I'm listening to the newly-released Clientele compilation. I had heard a few of their songs over the years, but had never really dug any deeper -- I had just assumed they were some sort of Belle &...
Hopefully he brings this show to the states next summer!
Hopefully there's still room in the budget for ELO, too!
The backlash to the debates is classic 2010s Republican Party: they take something where they are actually scoring a few points -- in this case the idea that CNBC and other media partners are...
I LOL'd. The press photos of him are very NPR-wave midlife crisis; "one day Dad went out to buy kale at the Whole Foods and never came back . . ."
Hiatus in 2011 with no firm plans to ever do anything again. They played a 10th anniversary show for Drew's label in 2013, and they've always kept the door open to recording or touring again, but...
Lol, at least they're finding a positive way to spin the cultural hijacking of their event by rich finance and tech assholes.
Is it bigger than the Pepsi Center? I had no idea Red Rocks was that large of a venue, but I guess my only frame of reference is a 32-year-old U2 concert film.
The new Grimes reminded me of Lady Gaga from five years ago but without the bass.
But what the hell do I know.
I'm in as long as they play this.
Wow, that was something else. Great game.
Speaking of Fox, I loved that they had Pete Rose and A-Rod in the same commentary booth. Were Bonds and John Rocker unavailable?
Update: TheFestivalGuy saw Daft Punk at Burning Man.
Area man whose head looks like a carrot throws cold water on your Tool speculation.
I mean, I think this piece is a master class in fallacious argument, but setting that aside, is there actually a problem with men "not getting" Joanna Newsom? She hardly seems like an artist that is...
Hey superfans (who are mostly dudes around here), what do you think of this hottake?
Spooks, can you point us to any news about The Big Lebowski 2 or the creators of South Park being sued by Yelp?
In before this gets deleted when Spooks realizes what an insufferable, clueless toolbag he is.
This captures the general tone of the thread nicely:
That I have absolutely no idea who these people are is an indication that I have probably completely aged out of currently popular mainstream rock radio.
Assuming of course that Twenty One Pilots...
Yes, this is what I'm getting at -- all on my list of vocal gymnasts who do nothing for me, and at times actively annoy me. You could add someone with bona fide straight white boy rock dude vibes...
Nathan, it's ok to skip Back to the Future III because it's fucking stupid, but the first two movies are so much fun.
Seriously, fuck right off, these people have literally had all year to...
Every generation ends up with the Celene Dion it deserves.
I imagine they could headline, too, it's more the "forever trapped in the alt/rave 90s" mindset that Stink rightly points out.
David from Glendale, AZ, calling into C-SPAN during the break, "Yes, I'd like to know why there's not a white caucus in Congress . . . there's a black caucus, a Mexican caucus . . . "
100% percent correct.
"blah blah blah [rap][pop] act shouldn't/doesn't deserve to headline, and now let me wishlist Prodigy, Tool, Underworld . . ."
Rinse and repeat.
"Will Jay-Z bring in an overly 'urban' crowd???"
The thing with the "I'll let you look at your notes" was an attempt to build a right wing meme around the idea that she can't honestly testify without the aid of written notes, along the same lines...
She's completely dominated this setting, unveiling the clownshow for what it is in real time. It's clear that they have nothing, that the whole thing is a cynical charade, and she's handling the...
Donnie Baseball is done managing the Dodgers. Pretty shabby treatment after winning three straight division titles, but hey, it's not my billions being spent by ownership.
He'd be a hero for a time -- even more than he already is to these people -- but the day-to-day realities of Congressional deal-making would almost certainly wear off the halo by the next time...
So the answer to the first question is actually really interesting. There have been long, drawn-out battles for Speaker of the House before, but not since the 19th century, a time in which regional...
"I was going to buy [one of the scant few thousand remaining] Coachella passes, but then Beach House played a bunch of LA shows in December, so fuck that."
Bruce is going to have a new album next year.
Also, little disappointed with the ask on this box set -- the original one album version is cool, but it's still like 80% or more of songs that ended...
Something something massive CHVRCHES fan complains about some other band condescending to middling Passion Pit-like sound.
That album was fucking great.
Hard to believe that CoS, Reddit, and Russian radio didn't get the whole story.
