Not sure who that band is in the video, but I don't think they have a pair of balls between the five of them. No one really knows what rock is anymore.

sarah jaffe; should just be playing coffee houses, because thats where i have heard your music over, and over again for the past 20 years played by prettier yet just as unoriginal girls.

if you are going to make unoriginal music might as well fill it with some bubble gum pretty princes singing it

isn't this how the music industry works??

that's not always how the industry works. i wouldn't exactly say kimya dawson, beth ditto, scout niblett, or even the Deal sisters are the most bubble gum pretty princesses in the world and they're all successful, put out records and tour the world. it's unbelievably shallow to bring up someone's looks. if you don't like her music, fine. but try not to be so superficial and eighth grade about it.

Anonymous Anonymous said...

12:57 i think you are proving my point. kimya dawson, beth ditto, scout niblett, the Deal sisters are not bubble gum princess. but at least they have an ounce or 2 of originality. jaffe does not. she is what like a lot of the old dallas regime(death ray davies, black heart dynasty, etc) is, observer friendly and lack of substance.

also.. kimya d. beth d. etc etc.. are not in the main stream, and i don't think we will ever see dawson on TRL.

3:24 PM  
Anonymous Anonymous said...

Yeah, they're not necessarily in the mainstream but they are successful. Although Kimya Dawson was all over that Juno soundtrack, that's pretty fucking mainstream.

Whether or not you think she's original, it's pretty unnecessary to bring up her looks. It speaks of a superficial personality and it's unattractive, since you seemed to be so concerned with what is, in fact, attractive.

yeah, I guess playing to whoopi fucking goldberg on the view isn't mainstream:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BFff-FekFWU

or playing half the songs on the number one selling album in America that was the soundtrack to an Oscar winning film...that's not mainstream either.

or playing a potluck at the most respected venue on panhandle in December, I suppose THAT wasn't mainstream was it?

ok. go to urban out fitters; ask 10 people who kimya dawson is. If you come back with even a 30% success rate, then i'll say she's mainstream.

being a faceless act on a fake 'indie' movie soundtrack does not make you mainstream. it however does makes you part of corporate machine trying to get every possible dollar from every demographic.

go kimya! go portland!

I work at urban outfitters and when we had the juno soundtrack for sale we would play it all the time and sell an assload. About 4 out of ten people who came to my register bought asking if the Kimya Dawson songs from the movie were on the the disc. One girl even bought it and told me she didn't care how mainstream (that exact term!) Kimya had gotten, she still loved her quirky indie folk, would keep buying her records, amd someday move to Portland.

as a result of a lot of Sarah J hating around here I decided to to listen to some of her tracks on her myspace. I agree she is pretty derivative. Good voice though but that goes for a lot of female singers out there.

Well, I knew it was coming. In fact, I predicted it quite a long time ago when I said that SHQ would exert more and more control over other individuals. And now that it has, we must honestly embark on a new path towards change. Before I get moving here, let me point out that it is my greatest and most solemn pleasure to bring a fresh perspective and new ideas to the current debate. That's the sort of statement that some people feel is insidious but which I believe is merely a statement of fact. And it's a statement that needs to be made because SHQ has a glib proficiency with words and very sensitive nostrils. It can smell money in your pocket from a block away. Once that delicious aroma reaches SHQ's nostrils, it'll start talking about the joy of recidivism and how its theories are a breath of fresh air amid our modern culture's toxic cloud of chaos. As you listen to SHQ's sing-song, chances are you won't even notice its hand as it goes into your pocket. Only later, after you realize you've been robbed, will you truly understand that it will probably never understand why it scares me so much. And SHQ sincerely does scare me: Its perorations are scary, its platitudes are scary, and most of all, someone has to be willing to enable all people to achieve their potential as human beings. Even if it's not polite to do so. Even if it hurts a lot of people's feelings. Even if everyone else is pretending that the ideas of "freedom" and "Stalinism" are Siamese twins. In closing, SHQ has no conception of our moral and ethical standards.

I often catch myself reading this awful little zine filled with dfw's finest little maggots,and every now and then i have a hearty good laugh over just how pathetic most of you are. I believe in our denton scene and the artists who strive to create something special for themselves. As musicians this must always be our goal, to create and believe in what we are doing. Sarah Jaffe, is one of denton's finest young songwriters with a voice to back it all up. I think it's incredibly unfair to say such hurtful things without merit.
the appeal of any artist's creation,to our own individuality is of course entirely up to the eyes of the beholder. however, and simply said, if you don't like it stop listening, but who are we to judge the soul?

We've seen various squabbles in the comments sections concerning whether or not Silk Stocking will be playing this show, so for now, we're just going to assume that they aren't. But in more important news, Kyle Cheatham's Night Game Cult comes back to town sounding just as insane as ever but probably a bit more ahead of its time than many people gave the guy credit for when he was here. Seeing artists like John Maus, Kelley Polar, Strategy, Jeremy Jay and others blow up around blog land over the past year really makes me thing that Night Game Cult could have enjoyed some of the same success if it weren't for the fact that his music is, in many ways, quite a bit more daring than that of the aforementioned artists. Not to say that Night Game sounds much like Strategy or anything, but part of that same ingredient is present-- you know, the one where it is ok to take Pet Shop Boys and Naked Eyes seriously. Night Game adds a twisted lyrical innocence and an unbalanced outlook that is particularly nervous, especially in a live setting. The respected Matin Iles will also be doing some rather interesting video work for this show. Apparently he and Mr. Cheatham have been working together to prepare a video presentation designed to match every song in tonight's Night Game set. Based on some of Iles' previous work, I'm excited to see this.

Know this:

None of you are my friends. None of you. I know who my friends are because they have names. As far as i'm concerned all of you masked weshotjr assholes are my enemies. All of you. I hate you and I hate everything you stand for, and I know for certain that when I come back to Denton(and I will, pussies) that all of you heartless creeps will do the same thing you did to me when I came down a few months ago...nothing. And I will hang out and laugh my fucking ass off with my real frinds, getting stoned and drunk and having the time of my fucking life. "I'll have a double Maker's, thanks! Whoohoo!!" You know you're all cowards, don't you? Surely you know that, anonymous. You're so fucking weak. You know that your state...your country is so fucked in the head, yet you stay there sucking on Bush's fat, wrinkly dick. You've been ruled by Bush for 12-16(i'm not sure..was he governor for 2 terms as well?!!) years..you're so fucking deluded!! Don't you want to lynch your parents for voting for the fool? Then do it, pussies!! You're all so fooled. You're the weak and i'm the strong. I had the balls to do what was right, to leave your fucked up country and fall in love. I suggest this to you right now: Leave it all and find true love. Leave the clique and find true love. Leave the scene and find true love. Leave your fucking country and find true love, for god's sakes! And really, leave your "art" and find true love. Jesus. I came to Canada for love, and I know nobody can do me no harm because of it. I am in love with my girlfriend. And there is no love on weshotjr. Zero. Nada. Nunca. You know what, my girlfriend means more to me than you, anonymous. She means more to me than your ugly, violence ridden fucked up country. More to me than your pathetic scene. Fuck all of you masked, hateful creeps. None of you mean shit to me because you're all just ghosts; nameless spectres in the dark. Be my friend, tell me your fucking name for the sake of friendship, man. Come on and be there for your generation. Seriously. Quit fucking around and be serious. I have been shelling out positivity for years...just listen to the words of my songs people!! All they are preaching is community and friendship and that you aren't alone in this maelstrom...that we can change the world for the better if we just try and help each other. I am begging my community and the kids I believe in very much to fucking try and connect with each other. How can any of you stand not knowing each other's names as you namelessly talk utter shit to each other day in and out? What the fuck is going on here?!! This blog is so fucking ugly it's scary. Well, dammit, I am chasing the light, assholes! Goddamn you for ridiculing me for my past wrongs, pretending to be me; whatever the fuck your diabolical minds have to do to try and hurt me. I reflect all of you back at yourselves. Don't you see that? Dammit, i'm trying to destroy this blog because I love all of you! Don't you understand that? Is is all just shittalking? If you haven't fucking noticed, none of my commens are directed at a singular person because I know how embarrassing and cruel that would be, to verbally assualt someone so much as to make them a spectacle for all to see. Be with me now or leave me forever.

And fuck paragraphs.
