~*~ No Music Discussion ~*~
Reppin': Mai GIRLfriend
Robert Christgau: is this guy insane or just conceited - Are you tired of music reviewers using bland everyday language to describe their approach and analysis of music? Surely you'll appreciate somebody who says things such as "My Bloody Valentine inhibiting serotonin uptake the vegan way" and "musically, Hieronymus Bosch as postindustrial atheist; lyrically, Transformers as kiddie porn".
Rick Ross was an officer before he was the biggest boss we've seen thus far - Fear strikes the rap community today as the biggest boss that we've seen thus far is actually revealed to be the biggest former law officer that we've seen thus far. Rumors are that he quit because his occupation title didn't rhyme with "Ross".
Mercury Rev's Snowflake Midnight - In a time where every few threads posted in NMD seem to be discussion-free variants of "Best lyrics?", "How about the worst lyrics?", "Would you fuck Ziggy Stardust-era David Bowie if he grew breasts" and "Post the worst song on an 80s hardcore album sung by a vocalist who has a prosthetic limb", I'm happy that there's a thread that has enough information in the original post to start a discussion. I've never listened to Mercury Rev, but maybe you have!
What album/artist best represents a certain era? - This thread is just starting but it looks like it could be one of those interesting music discussions that NMD tries to avoid lately. Somebody might even ask you why you feel the way that you do, and then you must defend your honor in battle. There's still plenty of time to make an extremely obvious observation in one or two lines before swiveling around in your chair to jack off in the mirror!
~*~ Batman's Shameful Secret ~*~
My personal thoughts on the villian Carnage - Most people think that Carnage represents some of the worst eXtRemE-ness of 1990s Spider-Man comics. Jace Madan begs to differ.
Deconstructing MAN-THING - He's not just an empathic muck monster and the guardian of the nexus of all realities. tendrilsfor20 tells us about Man-Thing's use as the perfect second-person storytelling device.
Who is your favorite superhero or comic book character of all time? - It's actually a very personal question!
Funny Panel of the Week - "Shit!"
