any tweet by alice glass is absolutely retarded

That's probably the greatest tweet of all time by anyone. This one usually gives me a nice laugh though
this is actually making me reconsider trying to listen to his music wow
why doesn't /pol/ love 50 cent, seriously
His blog and all his old tweets are great.
are you fucking kidding? dave grohl is the biggest fucking punchline of all time.
you'd think that after he became a millionaire a trillion times over he'd just do what he wants, but apparently what he wants is to make garbage for the radio to buzz in the background like a shitty off-key refrigerator.
because the only reason he got famous was because he had his dick deep in kurt cobains blown up face. and he wants to act like anyone can just make a shitty garage band and hit it as big as nirvana. also he writes really shitty music nowadays.
Because Dave Grohl is kind of a hypocrite considering he wasn't there for Nirvana's begining. He also promotes the "garage band" mindset but records some of the most overproduced, bland radio rock out there.
he played in scream. he was very involved in his local punk scene.
that's basically what he's talking about in that pic. just dudes dropping out of high school and making bands, writing simple 3 chord songs, and sometimes getting lucky and getting signed or whatever.
that really doesn't exist anymore, per se.
>you don't need a fucking computer or the internet
Lopatin's twitter is pretty full of good content. Especially the live-tweeting of Billy "Modular Synth Master" Corgan's performance.
>that really doesn't exist anymore, per se
No, because bands can now use the internet to promote themselves, which is a great thing for small artists. Dave Grohl dismisses the use of internet and computers as "not real RAWK muzik!!1" when there's actually a lot of ressources that could be used for bands to produce and promote their music using new technology. He's just getting old I guess.
J Mascis's is my favorite, since he's far too jaded to even post anything or even pretend like he's on there, he literally only has a publicist repost stuff from his website, there's something wonderfully poetic about it.
not a quote by a musician, but damn it always gets me
And look where that have got them. American Idol winners suck. They don't make anything worthwhile. The moment that you want to win a music contest you admit that your passion isn't music, that your passion is fame through music.
It's shut down now I believe.
Here's an archive: http://web.archive.org/web/20100424162114/http://www.kanyeuniversecity.com/blog/
There's a lot of people in here that gets mad at musicians like him. They would hate kanye if he existed 20 years ago. They don't know anything about music, or art. There's a lot more that just hate what they don't like.
Grohl isn't wrong about the internet taking energy away from bands, he may not be right either but there is no reason to believe that the effect of the internet on music is good. I honestly think it's just removing limiting factors and making us lazier, while opening new boundaries for electronic music (which is also still being limited simultaneously).
He's a funny bastard, that Nick.
"I'm forever near a stereo saying, 'What the fuck is this garbage?' And the answer is always the Red Hot Chili Peppers."
That guy, that fucking guy I swear, I know his backing band is fucking amazing but the guy has nothing going for him, his voice is horrendous, his lyrics are asinine and pretentious and he has never put out a single decent recording. The dirty three are fucking goat though.
I swear nick cave is a huge example of confirmation bias
I can't tell if you're being post-ironic or if you're literally just barely stringing together an autistic little weak ass comeback.
I don't think the beatles were overrated and I find bob dylan's voice to be very fitting in terms of his endeavours, by the way.
Why are you comparing the beatles to fucking nick tryhard cave? You know that it is proven as confirmation bias if anyone that has anything against him is treated immediately as b8, right? Why do you even like him?
Please tell me how that post isn't an appropriate response to people who think "pretentious" and "try hard" are legitimate criticism.
I'm not suggesting you share those opinions or comparing Nick Cave to Bob Dylan or The Beatles. I'm suggesting that your opinions are about as well-reasoned as people that dismiss Bob Dylan because of his voice or the Beatles because they were popular.
you don't deserve those quads
your post is literally "fallacy: the post" and fails to convey the message you're trying to broadcast
it ended up sounding asinine and contrived, which isn't to say your message wasn't just that
His voice is horrendous and his lyrics are asinine and try too hard to present themselves as great works of literary genius which they are clearly not and always fall short.
His backing band is great but the guy has nothing going for him, there's a reason Warren Ellis curated ATP and not him, Ellis IS a musician.
Our little church is painted white
And in the safety of the night
We all go quiet as a mouse
For the word is out
God is in the house
God is in the house
God is in the house
No cause for worry now
God is in the house
>but you don't get the meaning and underlying symbolism of what he's trying to say
The delivery is hamfisted.
I don't think that's one of his strongest songs, but
>The delivery is hamfisted.
...how so? It's poking fun at small town self-assured closed-mindedness. It's tongue-in-cheek. Nothing more, nothing less. Repeating lyrics and saying it's "hamfisted" does not an argument make.
I'm curious--and I realize this is unrelated, but I am curious--what lyricists you consider to be good.
i took my shirt off in the yard
no one saw that the skin on my shoulders was golden
now it's not
my shirt's back on
i forgot my songs
the glow is gone
my gliding body stopped
Yeah, it's not like Cave is a very highly-regarded songwriter or anything. Just a personality cult. But you see through it with your shining intellect and superior taste. Good on you, sport.
Michael Gira would probably pull your teeth out of you mouth one by one, then ram them up your ass for a dumb ass remark like that. You do know he's friends with Nick Cave, right?
hahahahahaha, there's no way a person could be this retarded. I hope for your sake that you're just trolling, because if not, you have some serious problems.
I'm starting to think this guy might seriously be someone who hates the religious influence on Nick Cave's work, so he's trying his best just to shit talk him as much as possible.
not that guy. but from the 5-6 songs i've heard nick cave always seemed to fit the "prolific but ultimately average songwriter" mold.
can you guys suggest his best works?
I know yearbook quotes are 99% garbage, but I just think that quoting a celebrity's twitter feed for the quote people will look back on you and read is embarrassing. Maybe he'll dig it for life, I just know I wouldn't
I'm sort of curious what 5-6 songs you've heard.
In my opinion his best albums are The Boatman's Call and Abattoir Blues/Lyre of Orpheus.
There are people--especially here--that prefer his earliest stuff with the Bad Seeds (or The Birthday Party) due to the more aggressive arrangements, but I don't think his songwriting was nearly as strong. I don't think he really kicked into gear until Tender Prey or The Good Son.
Might be too many ballads, but it's hard to do this while trying to listen to music. These are the songs I personally really enjoy.
