Wasn't expecting that.
Yeah, I've laughed at all of those ones too.
I don't get that excited by end of year lists to enjoy them or not enjoy them, to be honest. I just find it quite amusing how many people get so hung up people get on them. I don't disagree with them any more than I agree with them, and I'm not conceited enough to think that anyone else wants to see my rankings. There, humourless enough for you?
If you don't like 'ironic' journalism then don't read it. I guess you're the one missing out on stuff like the Onion then.
it was a pretty funny list. Vice are capable of publishing genuinely funny stuff. I'm hugely ironic and incapable of sincerity though.
I posted it the other day to highligh pitchforks sillyness of putting an album from last year in their list as this quote came true with them sticking the Zomby album in... 'Number 27: Some dubstep record which actually came out last year but has roundly been heralded as “the sound of the future”' people said it was the best thing Vice had done all year though so ummmm... poor vice I guess.
"people humming transcendentally over distorted tape loops of concrete being laid (Wire)"
Enough of this po faced list shit.
they listen to musique concrete!
I am literally laughing! I am literally laughing out loud!
Sometimes I have to take a step back and realise some of the stuff I listen to is complete pretentious wank. Doesn't stop me liking it though.
the amount around here recently is nauseating
it's a miracle you've not needed a triple heart bypass, especially at your age
but i liked these two
The band who’ve got a reputation for being “influential”, and have a geographically specific “scene” organised around them that they put on semi-mythical “parties” for at a semi-mythical “venue”.
DJ who made “the year’s party-starting mash-up compilation” that you’ve never actually heard at a party that wasn’t put on by media insiders. And never made any of those party-goers do more than pout extra aggressively.
it's not that funny, a bit silly to say it's really good, but equally a bit silly to get too angry about it. but i do think lack of sense of humour could be levelled at a lot of people around this joint when it comes to their soundz
therefore my life is more enriched than those who posted here to register their discontent
me too. Fucking websense
So I shared it.

top 10 hipster pieces taking the piss out of end-of-year lists.
Not that funny to be honest. Surely anyone on this board could've came up with that article.
