Watts' playing is so lumpen, it feels like he's playing with drumsticks that weigh the same as a pair of hammers but have the response of a light flick, and every time he goes in for a fill, it feels like he does the first hit and then suddenly it's like "uh, what do I do next?" and then he wings it in the most shonky way. I've never experienced anything like it. The way he does his stuff, the way he puts out lines like that, and then what comes after is like "okay so that's the way he plays and you gotta stop him." I'm just so impressed.
"One of the weirdest things in this band right now is all of a sudden we're really good on a new album with this new drummer, [Dave Grohl]."
Dylan was recently asked by Rolling Stone to contribute to their summer 2017 compilation, the first time a live album has been published with that title since 2009's In The End. And if he does so, what was it like working with him?
He's hilarious, and very well-spoken. He's really kind of a great dude.
And how did you guys both find each other? What were your interests growing up?

Once a week I listen to Presence and I get all wobbly-kneed, especially with "For Your Life", "Royal Orleans" and "Hots On For Nowhere." I think about making those objects on the record cover and selling em on eBay, I want to learn all the guitar parts, I actually like Robert Plant's voice for a change, JPJ bass tones are the best recorded sounds in history, and I want to exhume Bonham and hug him.Let's discuss.1. "Hots On For Nowhere" in particular and "For Your Life" together in terms of guitar lines, chords and timbre is absolutely gorgeous and I think is one of the best sounding songs on the album.2. The opening track "Royal Avenue" in particular is the kind of heavy "Horns Don't Rise" kind of thing with a lot of cool guitar effects running about and there's a nice rhythmic element to it too.3. The end song "Hots On For Nowhere" is the best song I've ever recorded.It is the best part of the album and it's just so good. In addition to the intro by Bonham, the other songs are well-structured with plenty of guitar moments and just enough rhythm in it as well, but the last song "Hots On For Nowhere"

which bands from the current decade will be like Pavement are now, ten years from now?
PITTSBURGH: It's not like we're going to jump back into this era in the 80's or 90's where we're trying to go back to one kind of guitar for a while. We've always tried to put ourselves in a place where we can do our guitar stuff very well, even when we try to do stuff in a way that's a bit different from what we used to be able to do. That's what I like about some of these things, that we're trying to be a bit more experimental. They're definitely still very much rock and roll records. There are all kinds of interesting records that we make, but there's definitely more than just the usual prog band records. People have been saying I wouldn't do one of those for a long time—and sometimes it's true; sometimes it's not. It's just that I've tried to do a lot different things with my own music, and I think that there's a lot of different ways to play that is actually cool. But again, it feels like we're playing the same music over and over again and people can hear it. When I say we are playing over and over again and people can hear it, it's because I just think we want to stay in the same music

Try Nacão Zumbi. Brazilian music from Recife has balls; it's not that fluffy curtains-in-the-breeze shit you hear from Rio. It's a little gritty, a little raw, with a lot of soul.
When I first came here, I felt like the only hip-hop out there was from Brazil but I just didn't feel like there were any local rappers; I just felt like it was for the older people or whatever. I grew up in the inner-suburbs because I had no idea where the streets were. I don't think you can even really identify a street if it isn't a major thoroughfare. Everything happens at the street level. If you look too closely, you can sometimes see where someone may be coming from. People have started making beats on the weekends like I did with B.A.M.R.E.T.A.T., I mean, when I'm out here in Rio, at night I can usually see where everybody's going because I'm always able to see those guys making music. I always had songs and I didn't understand how they came from because they didn't really make records. When I heard those beats I thought, that sounds legit, they gotta be legit, I need to give them a listen, that's all I had to say.

Nate yr correct but I don't think that "muddy downtempo rare groove samples" are really the best way forward for indie rap. It's true that there's nothing wrong with not making club bangers but that doesn't mean that indie rappers/producers should deliberately make non-club-bangers in the most boring, obvious fashion possible (not that muddy downtempo rare groove samples are boring per se, but as a signifier for deepness or seriousness they're pretty played by now surely). In some sense, it would be nice for the sound of the music to become more interesting and original. For example, this sound might be a mix between dubstep music and house, and if it had one thing in common with house, it would be that all the things that makes it so cool from the house side are exactly what makes it so dull. (For example: you see the same drums, same bass, almost even beat, and almost the same vocals to just make the whole track more interesting and original). I still think it's important that these tracks are made in one way or another, and that they get some serious airplay. But that seems to be impossible, for many reasons (most important of all by the fact that most tracks are in the mid/late 80's). So the answer to how to make a good indie rap track is simple: listen

The only place I've heard this kind-of hip hop is blasting from these cars that drive down streets really slowly at night in Brooklyn just blasting this weird kind-of hip-hop. So, maybe I should go there when I'm drunk. Just maybe it would be cool? I mean, it kind of seems like something that would make for an interesting evening out there at night. [Laughs]
The way you rap has changed over the years… [In the mid-70s, rapper B.o.B went missing] and you guys made the move to rap in your later years, how did you go about recording all those songs together?
Hahaha, we recorded the records together at our home for a pretty good amount of time in the '80s and '90s. We were the only guys recording with tape, we did a lot of the mixing. We kept it pretty low key, and I just let it hang there. I'm pretty sure we kept it as much as we kept B.o.B there. But even when we did the album, we were both trying the same thing, and we got so obsessed with mixing. That wasn't something we ever talked about. [Laughs] It wasn't as much of our minds being there as it was just the way the sound would fit in. But we had a lot of fun with listening

I don't care if you're white black a bitch or a fucking bum off of the streets. If you rap about shooting people, smoking blunts, wearing timbs, drinking hennessy, and whatever else, I'll buy your music. I can't even afford your music and don't want to know what you're up to with your rap career.I was actually in a situation where some of my friends used to take my advice when it came to buying records. They would sell a hundred and a hundred records on the first or second week of the release date and then we'd go out and smoke or listen to whatever. And when I got into the rap game, I wasn't into hearing everything, although obviously I loved my parents. So I'd record a few records with my mom in the garage, or my cousin in the yard, and that was good for a few weeks. My cousin would bring the CD and I'd do a few listens. You want to talk about a family unit? They'd get together with my mom and talk and stuff. I had an album, but my sister and I had to spend a lot of money. So we never had to listen to the music.That's how it is, you gotta live through something, learn from something, and get past it. If you don't, you never go forward in life

i like how the lyrics expose the inherent mundanity of stream-of-consciousness, it's like...the brain in repose
in the entire breakfast section she doesn't blink once, just the fixed stare and a monotone about cereal. capturing the true essence of all our mornings.
in my opinion, in every moment of the band's career, they have always managed to maintain a sense of immediacy, but without sacrificing their identity or meaning as a collective. this album represents their attempt to continue this trend, and they are able to do it by balancing their two main identities: their art and their music.
is an album about having to balance the fact that you can't just say shit and expect anything to be as good as the next. as a group they have always tried to be honest with themselves, but I feel this album has the most perfect balance of being honest as well as being concise. they're never forced to prove their identity, and they know how powerful and relevant art can be, all without compromising style or style or style. what's in common with this album is simply that both the lyrics and the music are incredibly engaging...no, extremely so...not just the song quality, which is very good, but how they present their art as well. on record this seems to feel more like an interview or an article than a collection of songs

Does anyone in this bitch like ICP? I like how they're looking good in their jeans.
It's probably my favorite piece from this episode, with the whole "sucking cock" line and the way the dude makes him say "fuck you" before he gets up. I like that he puts his hand to his mouth and says nothing, though, which isn't very fun.
You know, I think I might just go the full "fuck you" to everyone and just cut my dick off, and maybe this time no one will think twice about it. That's kind of the way I'm approaching it now. Maybe I will cut it off when I'm getting ready to blow my load into everyone's faces. That sounds like fun.
It's not. I'll never forget the guy's jaw dropping as he says it out loud as they walk off in the other direction.

I would have sex with all this white girls
'Don't you want to fuck her?'
"No I don't want sex"
"Yes I really want."
We had the chance to talk to some of our girls, and find out how their lives have changed in the last five years since being exposed to the online porn world.
The first time she read the news was when she discovered the internet when she became 14-years-old. She quickly discovered the internet and was so excited to discover everything she could about sex.
"I had a lot of friends and I started online dating and eventually I just discovered my fetish" she said.
"I've never been shy about talking and asking questions so I didn't have any bad feelings or anything like that" said her husband.
She's been making videos and online sex experiences since she was 15-years-old and she now makes money with the videos and is doing it all for fun.
This wasn't always the case and at first it wasn't easy to come across. The couple are a married couple who have lived together for two decades and still has their kids.
They have four years ago got on webcam and watched the most recent sex film of Victoria and then they started watching the latest ones which were on the internet.

As such, I think the "F-bomb" thing is bullshit, as well as his constant "dude's dick should die," "I should just kill myself," etc. I think the thing that I really didn't like, and still do to this day, is how much of the video he goes on about "the fucksheisting culture."

A little clarity:
"The fucksheisting culture" is a term that came up a couple of years ago when people mentioned to me how we're "the fucksheisting society" as a reference to the people who support them and the way society gives them these things.
"Fucking shitheisting" is something that only people who are into hardcore sex will actually think about because of it's nature as disgusting and taboo. The term fucking shitheisting has become quite popular and I don't think that it has gone away for some time now. I have heard this word used so many times and I feel like I have seen it before but I felt like I had never seen it until now. People have often said that they "hate shitheists" and I feel like if anyone were to call me an "internet bitch" for posting about shitheists, I would feel the hate for saying it, because shitheists are something that is part of what I do and what I love about making porn.
I think fucking shitheists and porn is just one of those things that people who aren't into hardcore sex can appreciate and it's something that is actually really amazing to see it happen so that even those who don't like hardcore sex can actually talk about it in a way that is a lot clearer. It has this amazing "unconditional" quality where if you are "

Was/Is Morrissey Racist? The Oxford United Church of Christ has a page on the blog: https://t.co/VX6jUO3jGK — The Oxford United Church of Christ (@oxonthechurch) October 16, 2017
Mills said he was not racist because he doesn't believe "the majority of people of colour are better than the majority of white people", but he had no qualms in saying that race and religion should not be mutually exclusive.
"[Morrissey's] songs are very much about race and religion. He's not racist because he's a black musician. I'm saying that racism is something that people of colour do because … that's not about race. That's about religion," Morrissey told The Guardian.
Morrissey has previously said people of "all faiths should be encouraged to be religious in order to help us all live out our humanity".
In response to the backlash over his comments, Morrissey said: "When your race, race and religion are against you it's your problem. But when you're able to tell your congregation they're going to get a little bit bit better than you, that doesn't mean we're not going to work together to help you with that."
Morrissey's comments came at the same time he was attacked by fellow Brit, and

California Son is currently number two in the mid-weeks behind Lewis Capaldi. Album sales really are ridiculously low at the moment huh? If you need a rock-star lead singer to grab your attention and make you fall in love with a musical project, I suggest you listen to your favourite artists or maybe even write them some songs.
Son has been quietly taking the top spot of the charts for some time now and he should remain at the front of the pack until his successor is found. We all want to see one of these big names take off with Son to make his mark on the music world again in the future.
Son's next release for Jive Records is probably coming out next year. Will we know soon? Only time will tell the answer.
You can visit Son to see the artwork for the album release above and don't forget to follow Son on Twitter here.

Vampire Weekend have a new album out, and Pitchfork is going to score it a review at press time. They're not the kind of band to get their asses handed to them like so many bands are. They just have these ridiculously awesome songs. That and their new album's name. They have a whole new sound! Here are my picks and predictions for the two-CD releases:As for my own selection, I am going to go against my own tastes and select only tracks I really enjoy. Because this is probably a great album as far as it approaches the typical indie label tracks. No album has gone far enough in such a short amount of time to warrant their label placement. But that doesn't mean the label doesn't love them. So, if this is a solid album, I will give it a high five. It will get better with release after release as soon as they're done. In addition I will list the first track on the album, "One Night". That was so good to hear. This was my first time listening to this album, I have really enjoyed it.I also will note that one of my favorite songs on the album is "Shout", and I believe it is by one of my favorite indie artists, Brian Wilson.

"Warm Ways" sounds exactly like the scenario therein: two lovers spooning after their first fuck. These are a couple of the most exciting sex positions we've ever experienced.
The scene goes down like this:
Cindy is standing in front of her laptop screen. When she looks at it, she's seeing a picture she likes of someone else she's really into, but her eye's drawn to this other picture of her. It's her friend's ass, her partner's ass. She pulls her legs together, and leans back to look at it. On the picture, she's actually wearing panties. That's when she gets on her knees and sucks the cock down her throat. Cindy is looking through her phone now and starts chatting up the guy she likes, calling him "Mr. Awesome." They start texting and talking about life.
As soon as Cindy gets the guys name, she gets naked, puts on her underwear, and gets on her seat. Now, she stands there for a few seconds, and then crawls into a nearby cubicle and stands up. She grabs her seat, leans in and starts kissing the guy on the ass. She pulls him on top of her, and they start fucking, pounding each other hard. One guy is in trouble, as he's holding his partner up, but Cindy gets ahold of him and starts pushing

"You know what a fucking load of faggots you are," wrote one of the commenters. "This fucking show is like, a faggot fucking show and i don't want to be on it unless my kids are going to find out they are gay on a national stage."
At a March 15 performance of Hamilton by comedian David Seltzer, some audience members who identified as "gay for money" shouted "faggot" at a female performer on a stage next to them, according to Daily Beast journalist Eric Levitz.
"It was very upsetting," Levitz told the Daily Beast about receiving such a response from fans. "People who claim to be against hate crimes should stop harassing people by sending them hateful death threats, but apparently people who defend the LGBT community just can't have it both ways.

Gaz Coombes and the drummer of Gay Dad meet in a bar. He's wearing a T-shirt and has a beer in hand.
"That's cool." Gaz says cheerily.
"I think we're all cool," says the drummer.
He makes his way for the club at a high-rate of speed, and turns to check out the women in the bar. They're beautiful and nice, with perfect bodies, and he looks around at their faces. He takes in their faces too, and then he notices their breasts. It's like he's looking at his reflection, their inner selves, their feelings. His own body, his sexual identity isn't the first thing he notices, he thinks.
He stares at them a few more times, looks around more, and then comes back to his feet: "OK, maybe I was just staring." And with that Gaz takes the money he had on, walks back through the crowd, and disappears at once. He'll never know what he saw, but he's sure he'd never seen anything worse.
I'm sure the first time the boys told me that, it probably made me laugh and make fun of them. But this time, I wasn't surprised. They looked cute. Their clothes were cute. Like there's somebody in this bar who might actually like them

Aesthetic values are very complex but when a person comes from a cultural background that is very similar to ours, whether it is the United States or Japan or Germany, or wherever it’s from, that value sets the standard for all of what a person does; which is to say, whether they want to go to a party, whether they want to go to a movie, whether they want the chance to make money, whether they want to see other people — whether they want to be part of a society or not’it sets the norms for what you do. And the rest of things that come under it, like culture, politics, economics, religion, the arts, and so on, all of these things were in common by the time people got here; they were part of culture and were part of politics and were part of religion. So it's really hard to separate them out, and they're part of each other, but it doesn't get it. It becomes more complicated and, by the same token, it's harder to separate out the actual value of one from another. Now if you make up a list of all those values, how do you decide whether it's a good value or not?
In your book you talk about how value and beauty arise from both the act of putting yourself forward

things Billy Corgan said to Kim Thayil in Australia in 1994 poll"You hurt me deeply in my heart.""I'm a Pisces, We pick up on those things.""but I think I'm going to go back to the core, the heart music. Echo and the Bunnymen.""It's about the power of love. It's what makes life worth living. It's the one thing you have to do when someone gets sick to give, to always love, and to always want other people to be happy. It's the most universal of values in the whole world, like this.""It's the key to happiness, the one thing all the girls will be counting on me to give.""I think it means having some type of strength, confidence, or power.""When I hear some girl talk about strength, confidence, or authority, I feel, as a man who grew up poor and insecure and a bully, I want to try and do something.""To not take what's given, or to be afraid of what's next. I think about the power of love, and the strength that comes from it.""One of the things about myself is that I'm a little bit self-absorbed sometimes.""I think I was being a big boy on the inside."

one of my pet theories about the Gudda line was that it was "I got a ni**a: Grocery Bag," and Grocery Bag was actually the name of some 4th tier Young Money weed carrier who'd drop verses on Gudda Gudda mixtapes.
The final product was a line that consisted of some pretty well-known rappers, none of whom had any sort of real fan base until this week. While not exactly something that would put most of the young dudes on it, it's still something.

There are a lot of competing definitions of ambient, coming up with submissions that fall under none of them is quite an achievement. I've certainly failed quite a few times. It was always a challenge finding someone who's willing to put in the time and trouble, but in the end I think what we're doing has some pretty solid proof.
What was it like working with a film crew who were all so dedicated?
It was amazing, because this is not someone's first film and they certainly haven't been working with film crews who are as dedicated and dedicated as we were with this piece.
What made you want to make the film about black people as a way to get to know the people who make these films?
I've always had an affinity for black people in all walks, I have always been deeply religious and I think it's just a very personal thing. As it stands I consider myself a bit of a mystic, so the film itself is about a spiritual journey into the psyche of this black man living in America.

"Rockism" is a term that was invented in the 80s, and it did make sense then, because a lot of actually legit music, made by legit musicians who wrote their own tunes and had their own sound and style, was still being rejected by critics because of its use of synths as the main instrument.
As soon as a new generation of writers, acknowledging the greatness of albums such as "Rio", "Lexicon Of Love", "Tin Drum" and "Dare", started writing, "rockism" was no longer a problem. Other than for people who want to create some kind of pointless conflict between "white" and "black" music.
A few years ago I remember listening to The National, and seeing one of its members and producer (Kanye West) saying the whole thing. There was clearly a conflict between black artists who were trying to get a release to their fans (which was actually supposed to be a commercial album), and the white music (which was really supposed to be good) which wasn't.
Nowadays, even though Rockism is still not so popular or accepted, its legacy lives on in a variety of forms and styles. I feel that when it comes to "rock" itself (and not just it's "dance moves"), we need to celebrate its evolution, and embrace its past.

Why does Lady Gaga get a free pass from hipsters?
Lady Gaga is basically singing Britney Spears songs (I actually though it was Britney the first time I heard Poker Face), but since she dresses like Fischerspooner and acts like an "artist" she's given a free pass? Sure, she might actually be able to sing, but I don't see the Cobrasnake crowd championing Christina Aguilera.
This is just like the video game culture of the 80s, where people didn't give anything to music if it didn't fit the marketing angle. Madonna and Iggy Azalea had absolutely no artistic merit in the industry until a "video game" game could do what they couldn't.
The reason I want to know the truth is because Madonna's music is the same as Madonna's ass. She sells herself, but she isn't selling as a person; she isn't the human being she's selling herself as.
I'm glad I listened to her record a few hours ago because that would have just been so fucking boring if that is what she's really doing all the time.
Madonna's entire career is based on this kind of bullshit-lite "celebration": "I want to tell people that your body can do amazing things" — but we got rid of your goddamn bodies the minute you were 16

There's a certain artistry in the way the piece is positioned in order to take you in the space of what it might show. But also more than that, there's a certain awareness of the space by the way that each piece fits together in a way you can see that's unique.
This piece has so many layers, it's not hard to see how they got so many ideas and approaches out of an incredibly raw and intimate moment of art-making. It's just that I've never seen anything quite like it before. The pieces are all incredibly personal: each line is an invitation to touch the surface of the artist's being, which means this is essentially an invitation to put something personal in my face, too (i.e. "I'm interested".).

Yeah, well, I'm married to a curvy Colombian woman, so the flowers of indie rock womanhood look decidedly dingy and drab to me, and always have. The indie world's concept of sexy is very closely related to its concept of "rock": limp, non-threatening, far more interested in talking than fucking. At every turn, there's been a concerted effort to reduce indie rock to "sensual" music, which is basically just music to play to women, mostly girls. And boy do women like it when it's sexy.
What do you get for your money when you don't feel sexy? Your face?
You get your music out of people who don't want you on the air. If you come off as pretentious or too self-conscious or boring, you're a problem child and that's a very bad thing — but it's also the most useful thing indie-rock has to offer. It says that if you're not the one bringing the music to life, then you can leave. That's a big idea that's at home here. For women, indie music seems to offer the kind of connection to being in the limelight (and the way your music works) they don't get from any other form of music. It's sexy music, in a way, and you don't have to fuck that up in order

The best thing I know by them is Simple Headphone Mind - again my suspicion is that its the choice of collaborator (NWW) who makes that good and the other recent stuff I've heard by them bad.
The album's one of them that keeps me going when I'm thinking of 'The World', but by then they're doing this stuff by themselves again.... In fact, a good chunk of 'Headphones Like Shit' is on a different album, 'The Bleepies' but I don't know enough about that to say it's either any different.

maybe i'd find the groove on "ya hey" less awkward if they'd committed to the reggae thing on it more strongly, i can hear what they were going for now but it doesn't quite get there for me.I like the fact that they don't overdrive it just to try out the vocal melody, but i get annoyed with some of their drumming as well.4/10 – This is an okay song without being particularly memorable but it's pretty much a repeatable, generic reggae song, the only things that make it stand out from the crowd are the two lines of "ya say" and "ya here you go/and my soul / i'll get you back to me / yay" and the guitar solo with "kleer." The drumming is ok but isn't really memorable, there is a song called "Niggas and their Liquor" with a similar sound to this but it's pretty much a classic, if you only hear it briefly.3/10 – I think this song would have been a better overall song if it were played a bit slower in part 2 because the rhythm isn't that great and then the verse and chorus are pretty weak. It's a pretty bad reggae song and doesn't feel interesting at all. As we all know, reggae has been doing just fine without the hype

Like who would bother downvoting a Carly Rae Jepsen album? She seems to be either loved or ignored by most people in the world. Not only do her latest album art have that dark "she could do better" feeling to them that all the other Carly Rae Jepsen covers do, but she was once considered to be one of the best female artists ever and yet she was dismissed in favor of Katy Perry. What makes this an especially cruel joke is that, while the woman in question is beautiful and beautiful and beautiful and beautiful, she would rather go by a different name and live with a separate life than spend five years in prison for murdering someone or for making it to the White House or even having her child killed. She probably wasn't a "super sexy" girl, let alone one who needed to die for the next half century like Katy Perry was.It has been said here before, but it bears repeating:(1) Most of the world cares what you name your child if it's a female, just like most people have the same opinion of the female characters of many mainstream cartoons and movies, though they do recognize that the characters are very special and intelligent. If you name a character and then change her clothes to fit your whims, you lose the connection to them.

I'd say classic, although the fact that they didn't write their own songs (at least not the good ones) is a hint of dudness. The only exception to this is "Moby Dick." I love the way all of the songs that come out of that movie look like they've been lifted from the same musical. It's one of my favorite songs in all music. It's just a shame that it failed to make it in the film, as it was pretty amazing.
8. "I Wanna Hold Your Hand" (1989)
I don't remember exactly when "I Wanna Hold Your Hand" became the title track on the Beatles' Sgt. Pepper album. I remember getting to my bedroom one night, and hearing Dave on my computer saying, "I think she's the band's fifth member!" I was blown away because I was sitting with my parents and thinking, "You have to be crazy!" So I did a lot of "I Wanna Hold Your Hand" research (a very basic one anyway) and found out that the band had released a new version of the song as part of the LP. So I started researching the song right then and there. Here's what I got from that article:
"I Wanna Hold Your Hand" was originally written for the 1972 album Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band and

Melody and harmony means everything. Groove means nothing. In an ideal world, we'd have perfect harmony and melody but we don't.So now we understand why you must use harmony notes in your music. It makes your music better.If music is good, then your music should have a good rhythm. I am happy to share with you some music that I used for the opening of my newest album. I'm not talking about my favourite songs here because I am not sure they are good, but some of the best. The first song that is used as an opening is "Beware of the Night". I use this track as the main piece for this album.So listen closely, and you'll hear how harmony and melody work in music. So tune that guitar up, and then jam over the melody a few times!I am going to break down what each note means in music and how you can apply it to your playing. I am going to explain some of what we are hearing in pop music, but there will be a little more in the future articles. For now, check out part II: What is harmony?

why is it always the worst ones who have hair? I'll tell you why: It's because when you start to feel your hair growing, you see the signs, like your scalp getting greasy, your hair turning white, your brows getting long and your skin dark or white. Your scalp doesn't do it's own hair. It's only doing it's part of the job if you have hair.
Why should anyone ever wash their hair?
There are several factors that influence the amount of time your hair has to rest and comb: How often you wash it as well as when you'll comb it.
Washing it every week won't help, because you have more hair at the very end of a wash than when you first started. For that case, you have to clean your head every week instead. You can start by taking this weekly shower and get out of the car. Then you can add a little hair gel every morning and shampoo your hair every morning. It doesn't mean all the hairs on your head need to grow overnight, just the ones that do that. Do not get irritated if your hair looks greasy after the wash. If you keep using the washing machine after each wash then your hair will get greasy. Try it out first, it'll help.
How much water should I use?
It really depends on

revisited this the other day and it's def my favorite radiohead album after in rainbows. the subduedness of it allows them to breach a different atmosphere than their records usually occupy, especially the way their interplay sometimes takes on the tremble and glow of a campfire on "desert island disk" and "present tense," instruments flickering gently against an enormous darkness. i love that they lined up all the most intense songs in the middle, and the sequencing overall is p outstanding, it makes each song feel like a doorway to the next

I'm sure he would do it if somebody said they saw him doing it. And that's when we were like, "Oh my God! This guy can do these!" He's always been really, really, really good. If nobody was listening to the music when he was growing up, no one would know what it was! When you look back, I think he's had these kind of successes.
So, is it hard to watch the whole thing fade?
Yeah, you know, you kind of miss it. It makes me feel bad that people are feeling sorry for the guy who was born this way…
That's right. I mean, you see guys get married, you know, and their kid finds out and is like, Wow, wow. It's really hard to watch... you feel like you're not helping him anyway.

I understand what you're saying, but I don't necessarily agree with it. First of all, I think to say that Pablo Honey is "pathologically hook-averse", especially when comparing it to Radiohead's later work, is painfully harsh, particularly as Kid A was only released just in time for Black Mirror and thus a whole lot of the buzz about the album will have worn off by then. Secondly, Honey's songs would have been more akin to Jonny Greenwood's, especially in the sense that they were built around a concept of identity and an inability to really get away from it. The second song here is a particularly notable example, one that I know a fair few people will find surprising and maybe upsetting: "I Don't Know Why" uses a song that's about the possibility of losing your identity with what we associate with death to a song about being trapped in a room with no escape, and this is perhaps what a lot of people take to be the most frightening thing about the album: that it takes the notion of death as something that must be faced and forced upon us from the start. Not least because the album's title (and particularly "Oblivion", which is a reference to a poem by Theodor Adorno, perhaps the greatest philosopher alive today) echoes his own experience on dying, which made him especially wary of letting go and letting

Couldn't resist one more from the Pablo Honey thread:
Surprisingly, we haven't done this yet. I'd like to think that we're now at a point in time that people have calmed their tits regarding this band to the point where we can now discuss this record not for what it isn't (yeah, we all know that Radiohead made other albums after this) but for what it is, but for what it is - which is actually a good to very good alternative rock record played by a band that even at this stage were better musicians and had more talent than many in the oversaturated world of '90s alternative rock. While we don't have to be reminded of this, that there were better, older bands like Foo Fighters that had more influence on the scene than us; we do now know that this '90s alt rock album was a success for Radiohead, and they have their work cut out for them to have even another half dozen or so releases in the '90s. Their album is not merely just another album from them, but another '90s alt rock album that stands above the rest, even in their own era. I'm glad that this is the case because it seems like every album that they've released since has failed to fulfill that potential, and I'd like to think that this is something that they realize now, which would take them quite a bit more time to fix.

Time is an illusion, both in house music and also local bus timetable news.

Ex Bayer Leverkusen and Motherwell winger Topper serving up the assists for penalty box praxis and half time shandies.
A side whose only goal of the night came in the 84th minute courtesy of a lovely ball by Adam Morgan to bring down a ball from David Ospina, a well-worked effort from Schick and a fine cross from Kjaergaard all combined to turn the match on its head.
Kjæger's man of the match appearance at the death was an effort that was well headed by the German but was well blocked by a good save from keeper Tom Vucinic to preserve the victory.
Stoke City (2-0-4-3): Schill; McAleney, Ospina, Schick, Alderweireld, Darmian (Adomah 66); Schick, Morgan, Ospina (Bertrand 89), Kjaergaard, Kabasele, Kjaergaard (Borjan 65); Johnson, Gabbidon.
Subs Not Used: Ospina, Ospina.
Booked: Gabbidon (65).
Goals: Kjaergaard 13.
Ref: Sören Krzyzewski

If this is the album everyone's really looking for and you're waiting until you get your hands on it, you should look like a fucking douche to the person making the album and/or the studio workers who did it.
That guy is an actual fucking douche.

It's a lot darker and rougher than Avril's or Hilary's. And she's not shy with it; rams the raw throat right into you with her thick voice. You think she's singing a different song now: "I want to be like him (that guy with the big cock), I want to be like him (that guy with the big cock) — but I'm not, I'm just here to please you." That one doesn't really leave you feeling satisfied with how it's going to go. A couple of songs back she had a song on where she sings, "There are girls that love me even though I'm not wearing a bra," you think? That's what you should be feeling, but instead of feeling good, she goes, "There are girls that really do like me even though I'm not wearing a bra." Her new song is less about you and more about her. And you're so happy to be one of the guys she can fuck, because she seems to take it in stride and just accept it, whereas you want to make her regret it. I mean come on. Look, the woman wants to be taken on a roller coaster, and that really is what it feels like when you fuck her like this. Now you haven't heard a song more sexually suggestive, so whoa. Anyway, back to that song for a

The distant echoOf faraway voices boarding faraway trainsTo take them home toThe ones that they love and who love them foreverThe glazed, dirty steps, repeat my own and reflect my thoughtsCold and uninviting, partially nakedExcept for toffee wrappers and this morning's paperMr. Jones got run downHeadlines of death and sorrow, they tell of tomorrowMadmen on the rampageAnd I'm down in the tube station at 10 in the morningThat's the scene of a tragedy just moments agoLike this one and all, with no choice but to believeThat if it wasn't for the pain of losing my child, I might have a full life againWith me, without him, I guess I still have twoI'd be sitting on the train with tears streaming down my faceAnd as the sun falls over the trees, I watch from a distanceAnd a voice says in my head "I love you too."
