I have found that over many years I sometimes forget the politics or context that made me hate an artist or song, so when I hear it now I'll be like, "Hey, that's actually pretty good." My sentiments lie between this and Sugarcube's post. For me part of it is being able to revisit bands I...

I recently picked up and having been listening non-stop Superchunk's No Pocky For Kitty and On the Mouth remasters. Fuck, what a great band. But both of those were sidelined about a week ago when I got The National's High Violet . I have never, ever been a fan of the National, but this album is wort...

??? The web site's like, "We're the original!" Are Goth cruises to the sunny Caribbean a thing now? I knew I had seen a documentary on this a long time ago. Only took me about ten seconds to google it. Thanks internets! Goth Cruise: A Gothumentary: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hLVcCsjOW...

I've heard rumors of a Southeast Asian "pleasure cruise" with Gary Glitter that went horribly awry. Sven: Wrong place, wrong time, wrong events coordinator. I heard it wasn't nearly as spectacular. Something along the lines of a backyard wrestling match with Ricki Lixx and way too much Re...

I mean really, is the newest Kanye West really all that fantastic? No. But the new Lil' Wayne is pretty impressive. To expand on the above "no", I mean, am I missing something? "The College Dropout" was a quality album. It seems like since then, he's just gotten lazy though. Laz...

You guys just need something to complain about and then bash. That Nataly is in fact pretty cute, and her voice and/or singing style that you're assailing and her face and mouth delivering it are fairly adorable. This, of course, in large part is why the videos have become so popular; your displeas...

Apparently, people aren't as willing to pay top dollar as they used to be: http://online.wsj.com/article/SB10001424052970204204004576049972873921...
