As well as every DISer, pretty much.
It still deserves an award, however.
who thinks he's the most arch and knowing blogger on the web, one step more detached than the rest of us, telling us all something important we just haven't seen. Punching a big ol' hole in our belief that we are outsiders, the anti-thesis of consumer culture, like it's some grand news only he's been privvy to. Great.
There's some valid points amidst all the 'arbitrary and unattributed quotes' peppered all over the place, the spontaneous text speak and ironic hipster slang, but it's written so badly I can't be bothered to pick them out. They're basically points explored in more depth in this book anyway: http://www.amazon.co.uk/Mediated-Media-Shape-Your-World/dp/074757085X/ref=pd_ys_iyr32
You're a patienter man than I am. It's like a word salad that's been left in the sun too long.
is Hipster Runoff always that retarded? is that why everyone thinks it's actually a pisstake?
i'm gonna start calling them 'AnCo'
I've never seen someone take so many words to say so little
I got halfway through the article and was yet to learn anything so I gave up.
blah blah blah blah
Gave up half way through. What the fuck is that guy on about?
About halfway though I was like "Is he still talking about Animal Collective?"
Perhaps you can translate it into English for us, then?
What was he trying to say? That Animal Collective are actually a bit shit?
"In the musicsphere, there are a few key tastemakers of different scales, and most of them have aligned to tell you that Animal Collective is relevant+progressive+transcendent."
That translates in my head to high-pitched nasal whine
very little and make hardly any (if any) relevant points, yet still managing to write more words than it's psychologically possible to read, without wanting to bash your head continuously against a brick wall. I haven't read the comments below, but the sad thing is, many people will inevitably believe in what he's written.
Just over 3 lines of writting is not very much to say what I wanted to, would you prefer a one word "CRAP!" instead?
Somehow, people seem to feel they need to go overboard in their criticism, as if to 'balance out' the praise it gets. People seem to feel like they need to shout louder, or be more abusive than necessary just to get their differing opinion heard
a few good points wrapped up in a load of nonsense
its well post-modern and shit, yeah? So nothing on it should be taken at face vaue.
Also you probably shouldn't bother reading it because it fails at being funny or interesting in the slightest.
cos thats fucking sick
but i would definitely go see them live if they still did stuff like that
there are loads of weirder videos up on youtube
This is one of my favourite posts on DiS ever
The album cover moves!
plus lots of stuff other people have said
just proved what a mook he/she is.
less about animal collective and more about the fickleness of the modern music fan.
that blog was flip(modewhereyouat?)ping hilarious.
