No, they suck too.


That's actually what I meant.  My meaning was unclear.

My Chemical Romance, too, can lick my balls.
Now you're in the *spoiler* place.

All those bands do. They all sound the same and have done nothing to differentiate themselves from eachother. It's like one big mish mash of shitty ass interchangeable indifferent "rock stars"

It's a shame I have to spend my early twenties with these morons. There is nothing I love about them. It's a hate/hate relationship.
Let's go to a motel. We don't have to do anything -- we could just swim.

I have a very strong disliking for pitchfork.  And it's not like I don't agree with some things on that list, but I think a lot of them are really out of place.  Oh well.  I'm probably just as pretentious as most of them there, anyway.

have you guys noticed how lots of their reviews start with something like "there's thirty-nine ways to review this album..." and then they'll say a bunch of 'post modernist' pap.

i listen mostly to old music. there are only a few new bands i take real seriously.
pitchfork is mostly terrible to be honest. i like their best records of the 70's list better.
go there for lots of amazing records.
south america's my name.

Quote from: Pitchfork Media
LET IT NEVER BE SAID WE'RE NOT INDIE!  WE HAVE BEANIE SIEGEL ON THIS LIST, HOW ECLECTIC WE ARE!  KANYE IS NUMBER FUCKING TWO!  DID YOU SEE CLIPSE? YOUNG JEEZY!!!

Well, it's more of a paraphrase.
"As a matter of fact I only work with the feeling of something magical, something seemingly significant. And to keep it magical I don't want to know the story involved, I just want the hypnotic effect of it somehow seeming significant without knowing why." - Len Lye

the list is  :yabbse-thumbdown:... but i'll take this over rolling stone's best guitarists list. what shit that was.
Obviously what you are doing right now is called (in my upcoming book of psychology at least) validation. I think it's a normal thing to do. People will reply, say anything, and then you're gonna do what you were subconsciently thinking of doing all along.
