Odds and sods on slings and arrows slung and arrowed during the holiday snausage making:
The Geenie Cola, applied today by Geenie Cola, RE: “I Am the Walrus”-
“This is their worst period. They were all “I’m cool, it’s cool, we’re cool so we can do whatever crap and people will still think it’s cool”
1:1 for UC using it regarding some squeezed out prose-loaf of the Fork staff.
10:1 for inevitable Pitchfork backlash of previously loved band
“Just as the flow of secret documents emanates over the internet-aether from the increasingly arrogant and misunderstood Wikileak’s Julian Assange…”
Incalculable (certain) for Philip Sherburne (of whom we are now fond even though we do not favor infinitely icy minimalist housescapes)
“Remember that time when Papa Smurf was into the blow and Brainy Smurf was……[five paragraphs later]….this track is like Garga-meh-l”
The longer it is the better the odds are for Pinko Punko, the more deliciously skewery, UC
The Stereogum Commenter Generically Ironic:
“I both agree/disagree with this [no specific signifier] list and would like to imply any effort or attention to thinking or discussing this topic is to be mocked. Effort and attention to register for Stereogum and type this comment obviously not included.”
Odds equal to the rising and setting of the sun, and the internet existing.
“Why do those *ssholes say I do/say stuff that I didn’t do/say? Their terrible writing about our bad writing is so sarcasm tag ironic close sarcasm tag yeah I get it, I’ve been crafting a cutting tweet all year with which to acknowledge that what they say/do is predictable though I admit 2006 was funny in an already played out way, also this iPhone Thai food app is awesome.”
“I would kill for your Thai food app.”
“She bounced her knees. I guess that’s another “like.” Wait, see if she’ll do it when you bang on a pot with a wooden spoon. Yeah, she did.”
I’ll only listen to/read this if there is the possiblity of Mekons or Pepsi Smash and rum, preferably both.
It’s kind of a haze on whose plan it was to do a different drink per entry. I shall blame C. Next year I will read one novel for each song, and have them read and reviewed before UC gets to #77.
Those guys are DICKS.
