record collector, michelada drinker, oakland dweller.
this is the shit that boils my blood. "More than a million people bought her album in the first week. And every one of them was duped." funny you say that rick because, at our last family gathering, my 12 yo niece and various cousins and friends jumping up and down and shouting along to "we are never getting back together" didn't look duped to me. and what the fuck have you done to empower young women, exactly, rick?
way to stay relevant by talking about the books and jolie holland, both of whom haven't done anything of note in nearly 10 years. i'm so upset by this, you guys. i just shut the door to my office and put on fearless on full blast.
She makes me want to die.
no argument here, buddy.
also, rick moody needs to turn in his entire motown/stax/phillies/etc. collection, along with all goffin/king compositions and anything recorded at rca studio b. if you don't understand how taylor swift is carrying on the beautiful american tradition of manufactured pop music, you're not cut out for music criticism.
oh, go fuck yourself, rick moody. i don't give a shit about your tax bracket, anyone who praises the 35th album by the young fresh fellows and then shits on taylor swift in the same piece should not be allowed to comment on popular music in 2013. they were a fucking 3rd tier power-pop band 20 years ago and they're certainly not getting any better. and los lobos, a great live band? WAY TO GO OUT ON A LIMB THERE, BUDDY, I ALSO ENJOYED YOUR RIDICULOUS RACE CARD PLAY IN THAT ONE. jesus, fuck. RETIRE ALREADY, FOSSIL, THIS GAME ISN'T FOR YOU ANYMORE.
i would have also accepted this.
jacob miller came close but you missed the most important one.
@Multiphasic MY FRIEND TOTALLY OWNS THE GRATEFUL DEAD HOUSE IN FOREST KNOLLS. I KNOW WHERE HUEY LEWIS LIVES. ONE TIME I SAW LARS ULRICH AT ANDRONICO'S. THIS KID I WENT TO MIDDLE SCHOOL WITH IS JACK CASADY'S NEPHEW (AIRPLANE/STARSHIP, BROS, LOOK IT UP). MY MOM MET ROBIN WILLIAMS. I SEE CARLOS SANTANA AT SOL FOOD LIKE ONCE A MONTH...
Whatever you do, don't ask a Marin kid about Tupac.
so, my high school drama teacher taught tupac and said that he was really into shakespeare. oh, also, i used to always go to the flea market just down the hill from the projects that he lived in. those are torn down now, though, and there's an applebee's or whatever where the flea market used to be. oh and, one other thing...
oh, shit, my bad.
@scrooge those cul de sacs that end at sausal creek are rad. weird little quiet oases a block from the bustle of fruitvale. plus you're close to the pizza hut which is a major selling point.
