No, you fuck off. Whether people are saying it was the "worst year ever" or not, it has nothing to do with what happened to them personally or how many musicians died. It has to do with the perception that globally things are trending in the wrong direction. I don't have to list everything that happened last year, but from Charlottesville to Puerto Rico and many other places around the globe, it wasn't a banner year for a lot of people.

I completely agree and I am certainly privileged because I am white, straight, male and live in Australia, so I'm immune from a lot of the awful shit that's happening.

But I would argue that, on the face of things, you could weigh up all the events in any year and realise that each year has its shit.

And the other point to make is that the vast majority of people being like "2017 was a bin fire lol" are people jumping on a stupid meme bandwagon, not people intelligently looking at the events of the year and political trends. So I think it has a lot to do with what happened to them personally or how many musicians died. At least from what I've seen.

Seriously, it's the dumbest fucking meme.

Especially as, on many measures, the world got better in 2017 rather than worse. It's crazy seeing some people getting attacked simply for saying that they had a good year personally. I especially love it when Yanks who are all #RESIST join in on this. 2016 remains the nadir in a political sense - so many things we thought wouldn't, couldn't happen, until they did. 2017 was just the obvious, predictable outcome of those events.

And hey Donald thinks he stopped all our planes from crashing.

"jeff goldblum and the mildred snitzer orchestra" sounds pretty intriguing if you ask me.

edit: lol i was looking at a fake poster and didn't even realize. led zeppelin headlining on sunday probably should have tipped me off

Yeah, I don't want to be hyperbolic, but on first glance, that might be the worst Coachella lineup they've ever assembled. There are a few great artists on there and I know Beyonce will put on a great show. But for the prices they charge? Not worth it.

when i see the coachella poster i usually laugh a lot at how stupid the new band names i've never heard of are, but this year there are some pretty good ones. "the mild high club" is a good band name. so is "the rolling blackouts".

"super duper kyle", not so much.

The BLUM plays some mean jazz piano. I bet that would be a good time, if he were on a legitimate poster somewhere.

"rolling blackouts coastal fever" is a stupid band name. "the rolling blackouts" is so vastly superior that i hope several publicists declined to represent the band because they refused to be called that.

that being said, the band is pretty good. too bad the lead singer sounds like a toothpaste tube being crushed for the last bits of paste before it goes in the bin.

they should change their name and hire axl rose. then they'll really be famous.

This is why I never got into them.

Cobbler, you're going to hate me but I once passed up the opportunity to see them do a free set at the Union Hotel Brunswick.
