I saw a commercial last night for “Christmas With The Idols” or some other such retarded program. Napalm is too good for these mooks.
Updated PFork Best of the 90s tally – 32 of 80. I’m still waiting for someone to ask why I need to have the artistic worth of my record collection validated by the lists of grumpy old hipsters…
Some of the braintrusts at the record labels have twigged onto the fact that maybe people are downloading music instead of buying it because there’s so much filler and crap on the albums that they release. So far, so good. Their proposed solution? Make the albums shorter. Not sign and promote artists who actually have enough talent and creativity to write a good record start to finish, but to just make the albums from their shit artists shorter. But keep the prices the same, of course. My god, just when you think they can’t get any stupider, they find a way. STUPID. FUCKING. IDIOTS.
Great. Now I have to go put a quarter in the swear jar. Thanks a lot.
