That performance is phenomenal. Finally watched it a few weeks ago.

Woke up and am now blasting Veckatimest on vinyl this morning. Best start to a day I've had in a long time.

It's got to be better than seeing Lance's Mom across the breakfast table, that's for sure.

I would assume that's a given.

He sorta looks like he could be related to a grizzly bear in that picture.

or like a guy who's on his way into the woods to be eaten by a grizzly bear...





it's been a long time since i checked out anything mofo's ranted and raved so much about, finally breaking that dry spell. "two weeks" is a lot more enjoyable while not actually looking at the video. man, that thing is creepy.

I think I raved about them much more during the Yellow House period. I probably still prefer that to this album, actually, despite this likely being a better album overall. I have better memories with Yellow House.

"[Grizzly Bear is] an incredible band. The thing I want to say to everyone-- I hope this happens because it will push rap, it will push hip-hop to go even further-- what the indie rock movement is doing right now is very inspiring. It felt like us in the beginning. These concerts, they're not on the radio, no one hears about them, and there's 12,000 people in attendance. And the music that they're making and the connection they're making to people is really inspiring. So I hope that they have a run where they push hip-hop back a little bit, so it will force hip-hop to fight to make better music. Because it can happen. Because that's what rap did to rock.

"When rock was the dominant force in music, rap came and said, 'Y'all got to sit down for a second, this is our time.' And we've had a stranglehold on music since then. So I hope indie rock pushes rap back a bit because it will force people to make great music for the sake of making great music."

I was just looking at the single on iTunes, and this was one of the comments:

Like hearing your dad sing Radiohead, 1 star
