Reason Why I Don't Like Pitchfork
« on: 17 May 2007, 19:30 »

Wow.  I dunno I realized why I dislike pitchfork today.  Minus the given fact that they are pretentious snobs (which is a given).

this line:

"Their record is as hard to get worked up about as it is easy to like."

talking about Young Galaxy who I have very little ties to as I heard them only the first time today.  So it isn't like making fun of a band who I am invested in.

If something is easy to like isn't that something to praise?  I dunno.  Let the flaming begin.

Pitchfork has been crap ever since Seger left.

Pitchfork is incredibly easy to ignore.

Please do.

Now there's a name for a band. Are there any bands called the Dynamics? If not, why not?

I had this wild and totally rockin' idea for song dynamics the other day. Get this: you'd have the verses all quiet, right, but then without warning BAM! The chorus would be really loud. Like, not just loud, but fucking LOUD. And then - this is the crazy part - you'd go back to quiet again for the next verse. So it's, like, quiet, loud, quiet. Man, that's never been done before!

Have you heard of this band, uhm...Blowing Up in the Air?? Err...Explosions in the Wind?? Shit. Well anyway they're really good. Some online web comic guy kept talking about them and I finally got some of their albums and they're amazing. Dynamics up the wing wong, spilling out the mouth.

Seger's pitchfork review of Funhouse was full of praise, but then again, he DID contribute most of the album, so what do you expect?

Yeah but KJS used "in b4" so I decided I'd better throw him a bone.

Look what we are talking about here. What does this thread do to people.
