  1. I'll actually bite on this outside of the meme-ing currently going on in the thread: @Time probably does absurdist humor in the shoutbox better than anyone else- he's always taking something someone says in an unexpected direction and runs with it in a way that always makes me laugh. @TheSam is in a similar boat here too, especially with his music choices (though I'm not sure if he'd view that as a compliment or an insult) @stormstopper has one of the best pun games out there- just so quick-witted that even when I know what's coming, it gets me. @npklemm is just right in my wheelhouse- we have a very similar taste in comedy so I always appreciate anything he says. The same is true of @Dean_Craig_Pelton for obvious reasons. @lucas @Darman @Jumbo are like a triumvirate of great backhanded comments. I feel like they are also at their best whenever having a back and forth with one another. Also, all of their meme games are *chef's kiss* Last but not least, @Emperor always pops in with a comment out of the blue that just fucking kills me. I feel like I don't see him pop up often anymore, but when he does, it's golden.
  2. Phoebe Bridgers - I Know The End
  3. Agreed on The Weeknd (whose cameo in Uncut Gems is also great). I will say that I personally think Ariana's best album was "Sweetener", but her earlier stuff definitely had some bops. I feel like "thank u, next" was just a rushed production, but considering how quick the turnaround was, I still feel like it's a pretty impressive product overall, if not as good as her earlier work.
  4. You've definitely made some points here and that's probably one of the main reasons I'm not a Swiftie (and I'm definitely more partial to her earlier work than more recent songs, though I did really like 1989 as an album). I will give her one exception on her new album's singles as I feel like "Lover" is just a geniunely nice song that is a welcome departure from most pop-radio hits, but I definitely would not be able to defend any of the other songs you mentioned. Also, I do want to give a shoutout to "Dear John" as being another legitimately great T-Swift song and add a FUCK JOHN MAYER onto that.
  5. There was definitely a time in my life where I was of the mindset that anything that got radio play was automatically a bad song, but as I've grown, I've definitely developed a more nuanced take on my appreciation of music and I'm curious what songs that are tremendously popular that people think live up to their popularity. And I'll start us off with a couple examples to get things going. In my teen years, I used to love South Park and really loved the episode that tore into Bono and through that, developed an opinion that U2 was overrated and stayed away from their music for awhile. But a few years back, I started listening to "U Talkin' U2 to Me?" and really learned to appreciate their music more and more. And I feel like "With or Without You" is just a truly transcendent song about love and heartbreak. The vocals on the track really demonstrate the yearning in the lyrics and the lyrics are simple, but evocative, making for a highly effective song that is also boosted by great instrumentation. Next, I want to talk about "Travelin' Soldier" by the Dixie Chicks- now, this song was released right at the time that country radio started boycotting the Dixie Chicks for denouncing Bush's support of the Iraq War at a concert in the UK, so technically, this song never got as popular as it should have, but it's still fairly widely known in the country music world and especially with fans of the Dixie Chicks. And it's known for a good reason, the song tells a heartbreaking narrative of a love lost in the Vietnam War and the story is crafted beautifully. As always, the Dixie Chicks build in some wonderful harmonies: Finally, let's talk about "thank u, next" by Ariana Grande- I feel like it's easy to reduce this song to just a simple radio pop song and think nothing else of it, but there's a reason why the song broke as many records as it did. In an era where most radio-pop is about problematizing exes (not naming any names, *coughs* T-Swift), Ari takes a complete departure here by showing her appreciation to everyone that she's been in a relationship with. Her reflections on her time with Mac Miller are touching (which gets even more heartbreaking on the album's "ghostin") and the song is both infectiously catchy and something completely new in its rejection of the norm of dismissiveness in pop culture relationships.
  6. "To Pimp a Butterfly" by Kendrick Lamar is probably one of the most influential albums that I've ever listened to- the album helped to radicalize me and empower me to become passionate about social justice and also helped me better come to terms with self-acceptance and just helped me develop a new lens of both seeing the world and myself. Another album that really impacted me was "By the Way, I Forgive You" by Brandi Carlile as the concept of forgiveness surrounding the album just really resonated with me and helped me better cope with the trauma that I've experienced in my life and see the positives in who I have become from a negative situation instead of solely focusing on the negative situation. I'd also be lying if I didn't say that Community had a major impact on the person that I am as the referential style of comedy and meta-humor is something that almost solely defined my sense of humor for a long time- but I feel like the show also defined me in helping me contextualize that bad people can make good things and having a critical lens to those in power is necessary. I remember watching the Harmontown documentary and seeing how Dan Harmon was talking to his then-wife Erin McGathy and just thinking "Wow, he's truly an abusive piece of shit" and after the news came out about his harassment of Megan Ganz, it definitely changed how I viewed the show and now will always see a cycle of him apologizing for his actions and then not following through on them. So, in a roundabout way, it continued to teach me how to be a better person by recognizing those problematic behaviors and seeking to be different. Also, just want to shoutout Comedy Bang Bang for being another major influence on my sense of humor and sending me deep down the rabbit hole that is the alternative comedy world- some of my happiest moments in life have stemmed from that world and that wouldn't have happened without me finding Comedy Bang Bang.

  10. I'm down to join- anyone want to be a part of Chilltown 2?
  11. Camp Cope is one of my favorite bands currently active- they're an Australian punk group and they're definitely not for most people on this site. The group is very outspokenly feminist and that might play a part in why they aren't over 100k but they've certainly found their niche and I'm happy to be a part of that. Here's a song of theirs called "The Face of God" that addresses the prevalence of sexual assault in the music scene in Australia and their own experiences with it. (TW: sexual assault) Allie Crow Buckley has an impeccable voice and makes some very chill sad girl music- would highly recommend giving her a listen. Wouldn't be surpised if she blows up some point in the future. Andy Hull (from Manchester Orchestra and the equally underrated Bad Books who just get over 100k listens a month on Spotify) had a beautiful solo project called Right Away, Great Captain! that tells the story of a 17th-century sailor who catches his wife and his brother having an affair and takes to the sea to avoid confronting them. This song is the clear standout from the project and the most played song (and for good reason) Finally, "14 Til" by Anti-Lilly & Phoniks is probably one of the best chill rap songs I've ever heard and is an absolute earworm that deserves to be heard by more people.
