    DEAFHEAVEN - Ordinary Corrupt Human Love

    yeah this album is still getting better the more I listen to it. The second half of Glint from about 6:25 on is some of the best stuff I've heard in a while.... and then night people starts

    (PO) Molly Burch - First Flower (out Oct 5)

    Yup, one of the better albums of last year, and it seemed to go largely under the radar. Never expected to like it, but its really good.

    PO Now: Rick and Morty - The Rick and Morty Soundtrack

    I guess I just don't understand how its "shitty and harmful on a macro level" (but... youre not offended) to use a term that means something objectively bad to mean something else objectively bad. Both of your examples don't compare, because one is ("gay=lame") which is obvious why it could be offensive to some, and ("retarded=really stupid"), which is also obvious why it could be offensive. But no one is saying rape is good by using it how they do on the internet. You are suggesting words that mean serious things should only be used to talk about those serious things, I guess? You're just fighting the wrong fight, but if that is the struggle you must bear to do right in the world, so be it.

    I'm sure this is the case, if it is making news now. I guess I just think its pretentious and naive to attack someone just for using a term in a context that you find offensive.

    I was comparing the mob's response, not the act they were responding to. The acts here ARE incomparable, because one writer is specifically focusing on infant rape, and the other probably wasn't even thinking about rape while typing a phrase.

    Never heard of any of these people before today, and dont really care about the backstory. Was just making an observation. People constantly gang up on posters on this board who use a colloquial phrase with no ill-intent, yet there is adamant defense for a creative person who made a tasteless skit that is specifically intended to be comedic and downplays the act of rape by turning it into (again, tasteless) comedy.

    I guess I'm just surprised there are so many heroes on this board that decry other people's common use of the word "rape" to mean "financially gouge", and at the same time so many defenders of a guy who released a video making fun of baby rape.

    DEAFHEAVEN - Ordinary Corrupt Human Love

    I'll try to gather the coherent ideas that I agree with: The progression from each Deafheaven album leaves the listener with no real idea where the next one will go (and its possible they are trying to maximize with this album what made Sunbather so listenable to non metalheads) Deafheaven isn't metal and definitely not black metal (or its black metal for people who dont like black metal/are genre-classifying on vocals alone) - so I understand why metal genre purists will complain Some of the tracks don't have a particularly strong progression for their length Night people does not belong on this album, whether you like the track or not

    DEAFHEAVEN - Ordinary Corrupt Human Love

    That review is mostly accurate (jilted harsh vocals over lush post-rock melodies is a bit off/night people doesn't belong on the album) despite how much I like this album as a whole. The writer seems more desperate to genre-classify Deafheaven in their iTunes playlist rather than actually critique the album, though.

    PO SOON: Childish Gambino - ...Awaken, My Love!

    oh look, another mega-celebrity. in this case, one who is commonly used to denigrate free thinking by association. You'd be hardpressed to find any ideology I share with that clown. Just pointing out, of all these responses, I haven't read one yet with any merit or substance. sorry for the interruption. back to your regularly scheduled celeb worship.

    the guy who posted right above you is buying product Y (just check out his 2018 political lingo!!). i guess my general point is - stop letting Celebrity X determine how you think the world should be, because your celebrity heroes are bought and paid for. it has little to do with which celebrity is promoting left/right or any other side of a two-sided issue, more to do with keeping the two sides at odds. When you are only given two extreme choices, it is easy to pick one. and that's why people still buy into this ridiculous system even after the "qualifications" of our 2 recent presidential candidates were out there for all to see.

    PO SOON: Childish Gambino - ...Awaken, My Love!

    actually i was providing you with the definition of "selling out". not sure how i could have made that more clear, other than to say it is obvious that mega-celebs (which childish has become) are literally told what to say/write about (or don't even write all of their material) in many cases, and they accept money for doing so. there are plenty of artists who don't do that.

    PO SOON: Childish Gambino - ...Awaken, My Love!

    i remember believing all my celebrity and sports heroes were just espousing their authentic ideals and never got paid to say or do anything. and then i remembered they never said anything divisive before they were famous! Strange how that happens
