Dave Grohl Isn’t Good

We’re past the point of treating this as an opinion. Dave Grohl is not talented, listen for yourself.

Peak of your career… Steve Albini behind the console… and this is the best you’ve got? This is every fifteen year old ever, except recorded really well. Ok you bought the heaviest sticks in the store, well done!

One more thing, if you’re gonna tell me Smells Like Teen Spirit was somehow better, nope – listen for yourself.

Yes, this is what happens when I post Stewart Copeland videos

We’re Gonna Bro Out So Hard

Arriving at the nexus of startup culture and summer festival season, the NY Times covers this mess from WeWork

When Startup Culture + Festival Culture Collide

At one point this website reported a lot about music, which means readers here are no stranger to some of the worse “festivals.” Suffice it to say I was surprised upon reading NY Times coverage of WeWork’s Summer Camp and being presented with some of the more surprisingly insufferable forms of humanity.

It may sound as if I am being harsh however if the above photo does not set the stage properly for this gathering of networking, synergy, and whatever other bespoke bullshit is going on here, enjoy a few of the passages below; a scene that far exceeds anything I have experienced at Phish, Bonnaroo, Vegoose, and anything I’ve tried to avoid by not attending Gathering of the JuggalosUltra, Burning Man, or EDC. 

While the quotes below are entertaining, you are best served gaining the full experience reading the complete NY Times article.

After sunset, Michael Franti & Spearhead played songs about unity, and two women in shorts kissed as men around them cheered. A woman dressed as a taco twerked with a man dressed as Sailor Moon.

Man Poses For Mugshot, Wearing Tshirt of Previous Mugshot

As seen in the above mug shot (click to enlarge), a coworker of Burt’s at a Pittsfield restaurant created a shirt with a reproduction of the booking photo taken following his mid-June arrest. The t-shirt photo was captioned “Burt Family Reunion 8/8-8/10/2014” and “sponsored by Bud Light and Somerset County Sheriff.”
