Didn't see it up there, does it have a bafflingly incongruous title or something?

anyway it's not really bad enough for this thread I don't think but man if I were a white rock musician in my 40s I'd think long and hard before writing dismissively about "SoundCloud rappers"

I like a lot about The Outline, but they do make it hard to find what you want.

the outline had a decent piece on this a few months back, albeit not about music: https://theoutline.com/post/2362/the-algorithm-is-innocent

No one in their 40s should be thinking about SoundCloud rappers at all. Accept that not everything is for you, and that that's a good thing, and move on.

wait up there hoss - some of that soundcloud stuff you're dismissing is just fine for the over 40 crowd, maybe not for you tho'

As a 40 year old, I'm cool with soundcloud rappers. I also recognize that what I might have to say about them isn't notable or relevant to them (or anyone much, really)

A thread where white people old enough to remember the Challenger Explosion debate whether "I took a white bitch to starbucks/That lil' bitch got her throat fucked" is for them

City Journal is the nation’s premier urban-policy magazine, “the Bible of the new urbanism,” as London’s Daily Telegraph puts it. During the Giuliani Administration, the magazine served as an idea factory as the then-mayor revivified New York City, quickly becoming, in the words of the New York Post, “the place where Rudy gets his ideas.”

some of these ageing aesthetes are better off just staying safely inside their posh wanking pits, and refraining from saying anything until the death. Then we all win.

This kind of thing not too unusual these days but published by the CBC, who have done tons of reporting on the story, possibly even breaking it in the first place?

I've never heard of that band. I guess I should be glad to hear that there are bands I've never heard of that people are tattoo-level devoted to. There are more bands than are dreamt of in your philosophy, Horatio.
