Rappers say the darndest things

No Room Service Just Snacks and Shit is a new blog wherein a couple of white nerds from Los Angeles make fun of rap lyrics. Yes, on paper, it’s totally offensive, but some of them are actually pretty funny. “Never let me slip, ’cause if I slip then I’m slippin’.”– Dr. Dre, Nuthin’ But a … Continue reading Rappers say the darndest things

Hipster Runoff vs. Animal Collective

This is the first thing I’ve ever read by Hipster Runoff, and I’m impressed. If he wasn’t so verbose, I’d probably go back and read his archives, but dude, that shit is long! His hyper-meta-meta-consciousness might not be for everybody, but he makes a lot of interesting points about what it means to be a … Continue reading Hipster Runoff vs. Animal Collective

NYT vs. Kanye West, blogger

The New York Times has discovered that Kanye West is a blogger: A gangster with a Mac-10 clearly beats a blogger with a MacBook — but only man to man, and only in the neighborhood. What if the goal is world domination? It’s been an innovation and a risk for West to embrace dandified clothes, … Continue reading NYT vs. Kanye West, blogger

Jeff Tweedy on Migraines

Jeff Tweedy writes about how severe headaches have affected his life for the New York Times’ Migraine blog: I remember one time we were opening for R.E.M. in a soccer stadium in Italy. There were 70,000 people there, just an enormous audience. I was really in bad shape trying to get ready to go on … Continue reading Jeff Tweedy on Migraines

Bands Who Blog

New York Times: Sex, Drugs and Updating Your Blog. [The Hold Steady’s Tad] Kubler regards fan interaction as an obligation that is cultural, almost ethical. He remembers what it was like to be a young fan himself, enraptured by the members of Led Zeppelin. “That’s all I wanted when I was a fan, right?” he … Continue reading Bands Who Blog

Jordan Catalano Beats Up Blogger

This is great. Jered Leto Attacks Stereogum! • Jared, perhaps having made the realization he’s actually among the blog scum he so loathes, firmly grabs Stereogum’s arm and begins loudly expressing his displeasure with the question. • Sensing that the eyeliner-wearing rock goddess might be in danger, a nearby security monkey grabs Stereogum, erases all … Continue reading Jordan Catalano Beats Up Blogger

Blogger Dreams Really Do Come True

Our good buddy Scott Smith at Chicagoist seems to be having a sordid email love affair with none other than Richard Marx.

The result being a funny and refreshingly self deprecating exchange between the … Continue reading Blogger Dreams Really Do Come True
