there was a clusterfuck about the "pink and purple" song? i thought it was cute.

sarahell, Sunday, 13 May 2012 01:19 (1 year ago) Permalink

no, i mean this thing (and LDR). i watched the pink and purple video cuz someone linked it here somewhere, but remember nothing about it. aside from, yeah, was cute.

oh i know, that's why i put it in quotes.

you misread something

i haven't really made ... i merely suggested

no, what you missed was ...

i was referring primarily to ...

that's part of what i meant when i said ...

no, because i'm not saying that you're wrong to hate it.

honestly contenderizer i don't get how you don't expect people to get pissed at you when you spend most of your time telling people that disagree w/ u that they're not understanding what you're saying, it's like really really really condescending and lame

but that girl was much younger, right? like 8?

^^ this is you, contenderizer

i think that, though neither is homogeneous, it would be hard to find two cultural groups in america with less in common, aesthetically and philosophically, than adult male music critics and teenage girls

Tbh adult male rock critics are about as catty as teenage girls

pffft everyone is catty on the internet

so what am i supposed to do, man? you came at me hard (and in massive, full-flame condescension mode, btw), and kept reducing things i'd said to weird, distorted cartoons you could sneer at. so i tried to explain myself - speaking simply and struggling to avoid insult and condescension. if that's infuriating, then i'm at a loss.

i think i'm just disappointed that kitty pryde isn't a flaming queer. like that name is perfect for a baby dyke with a brightly colored fauxhawk.

re: lastweasel

that's a pretty cute guy, late great! if i'm him, then i'm okay with that. but i don't think i've "weaseled" here. instead i think that you and deej were strawmanning me like champs, and instead of freaking out about it, i just tried to steer things back the points i was actually trying to make.

10. “Pour Some Sugar On Me” – Tom Cruise (contenderizer), Sunday, 13 May 2012 01:27 (1 year ago) Permalink

hahaha strawmanning, you're the one that lumped us in with these unnamed people who shit on teenage girls

ok ok ok i'm sorry, let's hug it out

the late great, Sunday, 13 May 2012 01:28 (1 year ago) Permalink

cont and deej are kind of perfect yin/yangs of each other because they both think they're constantly explaining themselves perfectly and are just horrified to be still so apparently misunderstood

some dude, Sunday, 13 May 2012 01:30 (1 year ago) Permalink

i formally apologize for accusing the late great and deej of shitting on teenage girls

why r u even arguing with me in this thread other than you are constantly trying to beef w/ me?

'my world of young people' = 'in my anecdotal experience, people in my peer group' dont know why that was so confusing for you

everything ain't beef dogg tone it down like 800%

this is black veil brides. they have 192,000 Twitter followers and teenagers love them. They've never gotten a New York Times profile

i can see why

10. “Pour Some Sugar On Me” – Tom Cruise (contenderizer), Sunday, 13 May 2012 02:25 (1 year ago) Permalink

can we safely assume the "why" is because they're not interesting to hipsters

the late great, Sunday, 13 May 2012 02:44 (1 year ago) Permalink

thats what im sayin doe

thommys got bendz (Whiney G. Weingarten), Sunday, 13 May 2012 02:53 (1 year ago) Permalink

this strikes me as naive. you guys are just saying that there are teenage girls who make music that seems "good" according to your values, perhaps according to "established rap values" or w/e. that's fine, but it doesn't mean that other music can't be just as successful according to other standards.

most (or all?) of the teenage girls who are currently making good rap music are challenging those "established rap values". try again, son.

The Reverend, Sunday, 13 May 2012 02:56 (1 year ago) Permalink

syllogism! try again bro.

balls, Sunday, 13 May 2012 02:59 (1 year ago) Permalink

also spin's gotta love having an editor who rejects the idea of catering to yr readers. money well spent!

balls, Sunday, 13 May 2012 03:01 (1 year ago) Permalink

spin's readership might have been hit recently but i doubt that they're doing so bad that kitty's 1600 twitter followers are going to hurt the bottom line

man down (D-40), Sunday, 13 May 2012 03:02 (1 year ago) Permalink

recently = this century? since guccione sold it? anyone here actually think whiney's gonna be working at spin in five years? anyone here actually think it's gonna be his choice? continue to be mystified at the times is more interested in catering to tumblr hipsters than metal dorks though.

balls, Sunday, 13 May 2012 03:11 (1 year ago) Permalink

i think the most garbage-y thing about this is that the music doesn't really do anything - there is a rhythm to her lyrics/delivery but the backing music is seriously lacking in that department.

sarahell, Sunday, 13 May 2012 03:12 (1 year ago) Permalink

yeah her video ain't exactly blowin up. slow news week I guess.

meanwhile the "cracker might be the police" has been intermittently stuck in my head for the past 24 hrs.

rofl @ reading this thread and seeing deej once again getting all haughty over "my world of young ppl". like seeing an old friend.

yeah, i'm sure they are, to some extent or another. but if their product nonetheless scans as "good rap music" to rap experts, then it's likely more in keeping with the genre's established standards than KP's shit, which most ILX rap fans seem to agree is complete garbage. to seem like "garbage" to the arbiters of taste in a given genre is, by definition, to have failed in relation to its baseline rules and values. to seem "good" is to have succeeded, to be more inside than out.

like, this is novelty pop (popular or not). therefore, it wouldn't be interesting to anybody unless it actually did seem novel on some level. and that novelty value isn't limited to KP's appearance. it's also present in her delivery, language and sensibility.

which most ILX rap fans seem to agree is complete garbage.

Glad we all agree.

Dog rap fans hating something does not make it novel

man down (D-40), Sunday, 13 May 2012 07:01 (1 year ago) Permalink

no, it but it does make it "bad rap" according to whatever evaluation criteria they're using.

the novelty argument is only tangentially related. "good rap" could be novel too, though likely in other ways.
