Any takers

I'm not anybody's mom or anything, but one generic LDR thread seemed to be handling the discussion of this not yet released album just fine, and will do fine after it comes out as well.

Johnny Fever, Wednesday, 19 September 2018 18:55 (eleven months ago) link

Don't people find those mega-threads unwieldy? The "pitchfork is dumb" thread crashes my browser if I try to expand it. Granted, LDR only has 3000 posts or so, but still, I'm not sure I totally get the anti-proliferation mentality.

I was so bowled over by "Venice Bitch" I didn't properly appreciate the new, down-to-earth Lana on "Mariners Apartment Complex"

They mistook my kindness for weakness
I fucked up, I know that, but Jesus
Can't a girl just do the best she can?

i also like threads for new albums because it alerts me to something new from an artist i don't care enough about to check their one thread whenever it's updated.

Yes. I don't see why we need a new thread suddenly just because she has a new album. The beauty of the Lana thread was that it occurred and flowed just like her career, following her twists and turns. I don't get the need for a new thread at all.

it's a bit nice that the other thread had all the hate, most of which has dwindled because why the fuck would anyone hate lana

Either use bookmarks or get a better browser. It's not complicated. If ilx-threads (of all things online) crash your browser, it's you, not ilx.

Ross, <3 u man but this doesn't seem worthy to brawl about. Use a bookmark and the thread won't load all 1000s of messages.

In my defence I created a thread for the new Florence album after ceremonials thread seemed irrelevant. Didn’t know that there are some Ilx rules I didn’t understand about general threads for artists.

Mark G, Wednesday, 19 September 2018 20:21 (eleven months ago) link

If there was only Radiohead thread, then I assume it would be this one:
Radiohead LP9 Anticipation, Fangirling and random Cheesecake Thread (Do not read if you hate Radiohead or us)

well, i actually didn't know about bookmarks until just now, so i guess thanks bateau for being a jerk?

(but seriously, expand all the posts on the "pitchfork is dumb" thread, scroll to the bottom, and tell me your browser doesn't crash)

It's a good idea for the album to have a thread after it's been released or there are more tracks to discuss, this thread launch is maybe a bit premature, that's all.

Zach Same (Tom D.), Wednesday, 19 September 2018 20:37 (eleven months ago) link

I'm p sure I wasn't a jerk, Enochroot. It was just a tip. Beyond that, I feel the original Lana thread served all our Lana purposes, and I didn't and don't see the need for anew thread. Also because the original Lana thread tracks her evolution - and ours, reaction to it - so succinctly.

💔💔💔@LanaDelRey just tweeted out in a series of screenshoted notes that in an unexpected accident in the studio she lost the song files from her new album that was ready for release in the next few months.

So she's saying all the work was saved on a single Apple computer that could not be salvaged after one drop on the studio floor? Ok.

I barely knew or cared about the sublime original; so that probably affects my feelings towards it.

Yeah I’d never heard of them, turns out they had one song in the charts, at number 71 for one week, in the UK.

As much as I love her, she seems like kind of a terrible live act, not a lot of gravity, and tons of canned vocals.

song was released yesterday, along with her cover of season of the witch from a soundtrack; both are really good! also: her tickets for her show in Berkeley mysteriously sold out on ticketmaster within 5 seconds but were plentiful on stubhub with a 10% markup. Why isn't anyone investigating Ticketmaster after that Metallica leak?
