Shut Up, Dude: This Week’s Best And Worst Comments

I flip 40 tomorrow. That makes me twice as outdated as Capital Punishment and half as outdated as Blochead. To reduce the blow of getting into center age, I had a birthday live performance in Brooklyn final night time with the Pains Of Being Pure At Heart, Titus Andronicus, Slonk Donkerson, and shock units from Ted Leo and Speedy Ortiz. Thanks to all of them. Speedy performed their total new album Twerp Verse (out at this time). Pains coated Tom Petty and reunited with my outdated good friend Peggy Wang for the primary time in like 6 years. Patrick Stickles sat on the bar and sang “Lilac Wine.”

I’m informed getting outdated isn’t the top of the world, although! Look in any respect these thriving artists who’re 40 or are turning 40 this 12 months:

  • Panda Bear!
  • Diplo!
  • Fiona Apple!
  • Nicole Atkins!
  • Sturgill Simpson!
  • Karen O!
  • Poo Bear!
  • Andy Butler!
  • John Mayer!
  • John Legend!
  • Ed Droste!
  • The Black Madonna!
  • Jake Shears!
  • Ariel Pink!
  • Kevin Federline!
  • Cameron Heacock!

Can’t wait to see all of them at a War On Drugs present quickly.

“There’s nonpolitical methods to speaking that I like, that I feel were very futuristic. And that style, and that method of communication, has proven that it can beat a politically correct way of communication. And I fuck with that.” – Kanye West (November, 2016)

Basically its the identical “he tells it like it is” bullshit argument, however Kanye attire it up in futurism to sound mental. This man has made some nice music; however his world view has been fucked for years.

Our Beach House,
Who artwork on Sub Pop,
Hallowed be Teen Dream,
Thy new album come,
Thy 9.2 be completed,
On Pitchfork as it’s in Stereogum,
Give us today our Album of the Week,
And forgive us our Premature Evaluation,
As we forgive those that say, “I’ve heard it,”
And lead us not into the Beachless House,
But ship us from Kanye

But that’s bullshit, proper?

I do love Jeffrey Dahmer. Just not down with the all of the folks consuming.

When folks applaud Donald Trump for his non-politically right approach of speaking, it’s full bullshit…Kanye included. The dude straight up lies. And it’s not simply lies, however he usually pops off about shit that he’s utterly misinformed about. He’s a dude who watched Sean Hannity each night time and thought it made him an knowledgeable on international coverage. He’s a dude who within the midst of a marketing campaign for PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES and tweeted out blatantly incorrect statistics about minority crime charges. He’s a dude who has used the phrase “cyber is very easy” and saved a straight face. It’s not futuristic; it’s simplistic. And it’s fucking rubbish.

I do know you weren’t defending him or something, however realizing what Kanye has stated thus far on the subject; forgive me for not giving a fuck what his ideas on coverage are.

I don’t know what to say about Kanye particularly any extra, however I’m actually reaching my breaking level w/r/t intolerance in rap total. In 2018 alone:

-Offset actually rapping “I do not vibe with the queers” on the brand new Migos launch.
-Roc Marciano persevering with to make use of a phrase that’s in all probability the final one quite a lot of useless LGBTQ folks ever hear.
-xxxTentacion having a #1 album regardless of his beating his pregnant girlfriend’s eyes shut.
-Nicki Minaj selecting and selecting her favourite Asian stereotypes to render as aesthetic selections.
-Kanye’s renewed endorsement of Trump, alongside w/ numerous different Trump followers (together with somebody who paints the Black Lives Matter motion as a bunch of whiny hysterics).

Turning music discourse into fan tradition w/ a choose few agreed-upon punching luggage is what I believe received us all right here with egg on our faces. It’s previous time that we found out take care of it.

“Kanye is a musical genius but also an idiot” is one thing I’ve typed in a single kind or one other on this website for YEARS. And not not like Jesus I’ve suffered for this perception. Oh the downvotes. The “hidden comments”. All of it. I suffered all of it for you. I don’t need your apologies at this time. I don’t need you to dig up outdated “hidden comments” and lift them from the useless. I do know , I do know…the Jesus comparability actually is apt right here. All I ask….as all of us ponder Kanye saying “I do love Donald Trump” is your upvote right here. Send me to the heavens, Gummers. So that I could also be reunited with my father.
