>“The thing about white cisgendered men is that they don't want to listen to me,” Crutchfield says.
Really enjoyed the section about how audiences don't "understand" her music and bitching about people trying to have fun at her shows.
>"Don't put me in a box,” she says, with a twinge of defiance. “You don't know what I can do.”"
If she could do anything she wouldn't play such banal music
So a guy was dancing wildly and yelling that he loved her and she was hot at a show, so she stopped the show and shamed him? What kind of "punk" musician is she? I've seen musicians less upset about audience members throwing bottles at them.
>tfw cis non-white male and Cerulean Salt was a pretty good album
She just likes the non-white males and white fagets, leave her alone y'all kids.
" “But I'm learning the best ways to approach situations like that with the most sustainable result. I want to yell at this kid over the mic, but if I do he’s not going to take anything away from it except for ‘Waxahatchee is an evil bitch.’ And that's going to be on the Internet tomorrow, which is fine—I don't care if people call me an evil bitch. But I want the kid to walk away and be like, ‘That made her and all these people feel bad, and I shouldn't do that.’”
not seeing a problem here, other than her saying "white cisgendered men."
All you fags acting like you're punk and she's not punk; fuck off, you nerds just walk around wearing a Nails shirt thinking you're hot shit - quit dicking around acting like anyone at all cares whether something peddled by p4k is punk or not.
>>“The thing about white cisgendered men is that they don't want to listen to me,” Crutchfield says.
This is a problem for a lot of women (and even men of color). If you don't think this is a problem: go fuck yourself in front of the mirror for a long while.
The only real punk in the American indie scene is Ruban Nielson and he isnt even an American
Currently he is pretending to be a hippie to be accepted by American fuckheads but deep down he is a real punk who would have died on stage falling off a speaker rig for the sake of inciting something real in people
Have you ever been to a rock show? There are always lots of girls dancing wildly and yelling things like "you're hot" and "I love you" at the lead singer.
I don't think I'm punk, but it's pretty lame for a self proclaimed punk musician to be upset at someone for having fun at her show.
No she sounds like a holier than thou cunt. Do you not think every artist has to deal with shit heads at their shows? She's practically begging for some fucking hashtag to be made about her ordeal, as if it was some kind of brutal assault.
Her use of the term cisgendered says a lot about her and the rest of her story paints the rest of the picture.
sounds about right
punk has a long history of sensitive types doing exactly that kind of shit ex: Ian Mackaye
>She's practically begging for some fucking hashtag to be made about her ordeal, as if it was some kind of brutal assault.
yeah no that'd be pitchfork; stop and wonder why that's what's at the very top of the interview? the questions asked and responses chosen to be published are designed to get fuckasses like you butthurt and clicking on their links. And yeah, most musicians get heckled; some aren't nice enough to keep playing. Danny Brown walked off stage last week after getting pelted with a water bottle in Glasgow I think it was. don't see a shitstorm about that do we?
Cisgender is just the new buzzword quit acting like using it defines you
>I have a small audience
>I know what I'll do
>Blame le cisgender male boggyman
Holy shit fandroid why do you torture us with this unholy news.
You're right that some of the tone of the interview comes down to editing but unless she comes out and says that she was misrepresented I'm more or less taking her statements at face value.
>Cisgender is just the new buzzword quit acting like using it defines you
I'm not allowed to have a negative opinion about a buzzword otherwise it defines me. Gotcha.
Ian would shout at people for moshing, stop playing, and rant about his political opinions in between songs. He says one of the turning points in the hardcore scene for him was his brother getting roughed up in a mosh and thinking hardcore has gone south.
Note: this was the Minor Threat days when he was arguably the most HHHHHHHHxCCCCCCCCC d00d
yeah probably not. Do you know how interviews work, or media works, or tastemakers work. People buzzed her record when it came out, so I'll assume you just weren't paying attention to music then, and now p4k is sitting down with her and asking her things that yes, she probably believes, and presenting it in a way to get them hits. I mean, she's explaining that she's being sure to not come off bitchy and aggressive in the VERY PARAGRAPH that the interviewer plucked out that little fleeting reference to gender. If you're gonna get mad at someone, get mad at p4k.
>she's explaining that she's being sure to not come off bitchy and aggressive in the VERY PARAGRAPH that the interviewer plucked out that little fleeting reference to gender.
Wow, she's trying hard not to say the retarded things that she ended up saying anyways. Bravo.
Is this SJW equivalent of "I'm not racist, but..."
Also, how much are you charging her for PR?
maybe she will; she's definitely got the time and doesn't have other press competing for her attention. But calling out bullshit interviews and reviews is often more trouble than it's worth, like with Fatima al Qadiri recently. She did just that and people just shat on her more. It's like trying to hunt down every tabloid probably. Or, she doesn't think it's as big a deal as "white cisgendered men" on the internet do; so whether that particular phrase really is such a crucial part of what she thinks or not, it probably wouldn't bug her that much if it's presented that way. In short: an exaggerated emphasis that really only rubs a certain group of people the wrong way, so does she really give a shit if it was exaggerated.
no I mean someone using a popular trendy term doesn't paint everything they ever say and do as X-Y-Z
no idea who this bitch is and i will continue to live my life not ever listening to her music, the energy gives off and her words scream annoying feminist tumblr sjw
>doesn't paint everything they ever say and do as X-Y-Z
We're judging her for this instance. Also, whether anyone holds this view of her beyond now really shouldn't matter to you. I really don't get why you care whether people on this board thinks she has shitty opinions or a shitty personality. You should probably stop that now.
>Wow, she's trying hard not to say the retarded things that she ended up saying anyways. Bravo.
it's the presentation buddy. yeah she used a phrase that riles up some people's jammies, but does p4k choosing to put that front and center negate everything else she says? It's pretty clear they picked that out and put it there even though it gives the opposite impression from the rest of her talk.
also never even listened to this girl's music, it's just sad to see /mu/ fall for this pitiful media trick over and over again.
pitchfork is hipster drivel.
The majority (if not all) of music review sites are awful though. I've always hated the idea of non musicians reviewing music, as if they are doing something important with their lives. Disgusting
>why does it matter to you if I disagree with you
Right back at you dumbass, why does it matter to you. You should probably stop as well. And yeah, every other time this has happened /mu/ went right back to business as usual and didn't bring it up all the fucking time huh? If she were as popular as Grimes, St. Vincent or Perfect Pussy you'd bet your ass this would be in every thread about her 5 months from now.
I read the rest of the article. The way she described that disruptive audience member also speaks volumes to who she is.
It's not just about her use of a word, that does in fact out her as part of a retarded online community, the rest of the interview painted the rest of the picture.
You're welcome. If someone goes out of their way to insult another person for doing nothing, then why the fuck would they listen to them? My existence is apparently horrible to this woman, but it's okay because her existence is now horrible to me.
>literally going nuts at the thought that her being SJW becomes a meme
Jesus Christ dude, there isn't an artist on the planet that someone shit talking them would make me lose my shit as much as you are now.
Calm the fuck down.
I think you might've been right at one point but given this thread I think /pol/ has exerted much more influence throughout chan than anyone might expect. Anons aren't even just saying her music is shit like normal they're getting all edgy. I think its the fear that this shit'll will hit a tipping point eventually where you can't intentionally treat people in a way they don't want to be treated anymore n get away with it.
All that being said as a accual leftist and a long time fan of hers, that interview was awful and pitchfroth is OVER.
Listen up, you simians. She is attractive to the people who don't want made-up artificial looking girls. Sure, she's a bit plain, but with no outright ugly features it merely makes her seem more attainable without downsides. If you can't appreciate anything less than the hottest babes then go ride the bus to refresh yourself of what average humanity looks like (alternatively look into a mirror.)
nah more like apathetic teenagers with no political leaning whatsoever, with a handful of /pol/ leakouts shouting loudly.
>leftists are all cuddly wuss hugbears
there was a time in the turn to the 19th century when leftist anarchists would blow you up with bombs or stab you or shoot you just because you were bourgeois.
"This is peak Katie: strong but kind, hyper-aware of the Internet, and more emotionally intelligent than any 26-year-old has any right to be. "
>more emotionally intelligent than any 26-year-old has any right to be
What the fuck does that even mean? Fuck. Fuck Pitchfork.
Also, nothing is stopping gay or trans people from saying they're regular or normal.
Regular and normal is referring to being well adjusted mainly, and not having an extraordinary life.
IM A TRANSEXUAL GAY MALE AND THIS WHITE BITCH JUST WANTS TO GET REWARDED FOR HER MEDIOCRITY AND BLAME HER SHIT ON SOMEONE ELSE
ALSO HER SHIT IS MADDD WHACK!!!!
>HURR IM A FAME WHORE AND WANT SHEKELS MY MUSIC SHOULD APPEAL TO EVERYONE
lol you have the best reading comprehension on earth. What's wrong, upset that people before WWII who leaned left weren't afraid of violence as a means to an end? At least they weren't faggots about pursuing their political ideologies.
This reminded me of the ol' lemon key face meme.
