OK, is this the worst piece of music writing ever?

I like that they rhymed "nuclear cunts" with "nocturnal hunts"

Amused by this set-up/tear-down the strawman take:

We’re now living through a moment when it seems as if we might one day, you know, be pulling Led Zeppelin tracks from streaming sites because of the scandalous nature of the group’s offstage bacchanals. Yet I somehow doubt it.

What's that Phish song that goes "Bag it, Tag it"? (morrisp), Saturday, 16 March 2019 20:03 (four months ago) link

Fugazi was effectively a startup from which valuable lessons in governance, business and sustainability might be inferred about the way an O’Rourke administration will approach the American economy.

Fugazi capitalism would be inclusive, consumer-friendly and ethical.

And anyone left on the right worrying about spending might like a MacKaye-like, bare-bones approach to big government, too.

In that respect, Tame Impala did more than enough to fill that void by drenching the crowd with their LSD-drenched visuals and even a little more crowd work than usual. (During one of their final songs, Parker crept onto the festival’s projectors with five eyeballs.)

sounds trippy

can we start one of these for weed writing

What name evokes so much? That of a world leader, a humanitarian or Nobel laureate? That of a sports legend, inventor, philanthropist or explorer? No. Once thought to be the most simple and humble of plants, it's now believed to be the most complex in Mother Nature’s entire garden. In existence since pre-biblical times, its cross-continent voyage began in Asia thousands of years ago, when a Chinese emperor discovered and unleashed its healing powers. Whether you use the Latin name of science, "cannabis," the U.S. government-imposed name, "mari(h)juana" or the 100-plus slang terms, its scope, breadth and reach is profound.

I feel like "Vichy LA Weekly hires" is a separate category all of its own

blokes you can't rust (sic), Thursday, 25 April 2019 12:35 (two months ago) link

The cannabis industry has its own "F" word. Instead of the letter "F," the letter is "H," and the word is "high."

Loving that LA Times piece

Friday’s set offered a mix-and-match roll of contemporary rock varietals. Lemony new wave. Cherry-flavored ballads. Pineapple pop songs. Lime rockers.

Yum!

two months pass...

This feature reads like it was begrudgingly written as a favor to someone:

In Carly Rose’s knockout of a debut single, this sly young pop singer describes her burning desire to disappear with somebody from an overcrowded gathering.

“I don’t want to dance, so just finish your Bacardi,” she moans over the creeping, bottom-heavy groove of “Birds & Bees,” which came out last month and quickly racked up nearly a quarter-million streams on Spotify and YouTube. And just before she rhymes "party" with the name-brand rum, she drops an unprintable modifier — two syllables, starts with F — to show how serious she is about leaving.

(.....)
