I mean, sure, you are free to like what you like, but Antero is also free to think you're retarded for liking what you like.

I would never deny that, I just feel like his arguments are phrased more like "Here is why you're wrong for liking this," which, sorry, that's bullshit. He's welcome to say I'm crazy for liking it, but there's no right or wrong answer to the question "Do you like Ke$ha?" Sorry, there just isn't.

that 33 1/3rd book about Celine Dion comes to mind.

I REALLY want to read that.

And, I mean, I don't remember anyone  here rushing to Asher Roth's defense with "if he makes these totally-not-strawmen music snobs apoplectic, he must be on to something" and "it takes skill to be that lowest-common-denominator."

For the record, I later heard some of his non-"I Love College" stuff and thought he wasn't too bad. But nothing to get excited about.

The thing that blows my mind about Ke$ha is that I often manage to totally love and totally hate her stuff at the SAME TIME. That's what I've been trying to say this whole time, really, but I'm not getting it across I don't think. Whatever, anyway, that's where I'm at.

What's kind of mindblowing about that guy (his name is Jeremy Villalobos) is that he has now caused two different bands to self-destruct at the height of their popularity by being allegedly a serial rapist. The first one was Wives, who kicked him out mid-tour and turned into No Age. Now Drunkdriver. How dude has stayed out of jail, I don't know.

For those who are curious, here is a detailed article about the entire thing from Washington City Paper.

And uh, on a lighter note, hey KDSB, Michael Berdan from Drunkdriver now has a new band with Mark McCoy from Das Oath called Veins. Check them out here.

No. Das Oath formed in 1999 and broke up in 2008. Das Racist are only called Das Racist because it's a pun on the phrase "that's racist!" There are no other Das bands that I know of, unless they're German bands.

I really wish they were called Dass Racist. As it is I can't help but pronounce it like the German 'Das'. About this rapist guy—is the word that he has been doing rapes this whole time, or that he did a certain number of rapes at one point, and allegations about those rapes keep coming up?

Well, as best as I can tell, he did a number of fucked up things during his time in Wives, which is what got him kicked out of that band. But no, I don't think there have been any new accusations since, so at this point the incidents people are upset with him about are all 5 or more years old. Which probably is not something that matters all that much to the people who are upset about it.

Yeah, those people who care about rapes don't seem to understand that it doesn't matter after five years.

Well, as I understand it, it's a pun on the African American English pronunciation of 'That's racist!' So if it's pronounced 'Das', then it is a visual pun on a verbal pun.

"Das" (the German one) is funnier, really.  The other one is just extremely fucking offensive.

I couldn't get through two tracks on their MySpace. Then again, I fucking despised that novelty track from last year or the year before.

Seriously, though.  Knowing that that's how their name is pronounced changed my disposition toward them from generalized dislike to outright hatred.

As usual, I have no real business posting to this thread because I haven't heard nearly enough new music to make a list.  But I can say that the two albums I listened to more than any other - old or new - this year were Titus Andronicus The Monitor and Superchunk's Majesty Shredding.  I also really liked Bridge & Tunnel's Indoor Voices EP.

Has anyone seen NPR's 50 best-of-the-year list?  It's actually much more diverse and interesting than I was expecting.  I unexpectedly discovered some cool stuff listening to the tracks they've posted (Khaira Arby, Rita Indiana, and a couple of others.)  It's worth a look-see.

I like that Aloe Blacc jam. Never heard of the guy, but I'll be keeping my eye out for that album.

edit: if california girls had been better i would have got that new katy perry album too, but it wasnt close to the single that hot n cold was

i gave it a listen since Andrew repped it and I actually like "California Gurls" [sic]. Turns out, like with oh so many pop albums, the singles are good and the rest is filler.

Also, I think I'm gonna fall in love with Ô Paon's Courses, eventually.
