Do you really consider Pop more of a last name than XCX? Or would you file Charli under X?

Pop is certainly more a name than XCX, that to me seems more like roman numeral (don't follow her so honestly don't know the meaning behind it).

I didn't know why until just now either:

She was billed on flyers under the stage name Charli XCX, which was her MSN Messenger display name when she was younger

XCX is quintessential eBritish. They’re obsessed with the letter X. The XX. Fucking Jamie XX.

Yes yes but I just wanted to point out how obsessed they are.

Doesn't make much sense as a Roman numeral, as the value is 100 but as written you're taking 10 away from 100 and then adding it back. So you would actually just write "C".

I think we'd file you under C, but not for Cobbler.

Nearly every American I’ve ever met does seem to get more mad about that word than they do gun violence

I know its not an actual roman numeral, just that it comes across as one. Certainly doesn't come across as a legit last name with know vowels, unless she's from outer space and battling Superman.

I still fuck with Japandroids quite a bit. Celebration Rock captures exceptionally well the pangs of nostalgia for younger, partier times. It is fascinating to see their progress, as they gradually become older and incapable of selling the same message.

Oi cobbs what the FUCK is the man cave stuff you do.

I've always wanted to ask this, but right now I'm drunk and keen to get this thread to the end. So tell me why on earth I would want to participate in anything limited to just ~50% of the people I could talk to. It baffles me. I associate "man cave" with my fucked-up sexist uncles/cousins.

Also, I know exactly none of you listen to any of the music I post, but please enjoy these top bangers for 2020.

This tune rules and makes me feel powerful things. Also, I was wondering who the awesome woman was fronting this band, so imagine my confusion after I looked them up and found out the singer is a dude.



This fucken makes me feel good.



This is too real.



Do you like metal? Listen to this. (where is mikal)



If you're feeling emo, fucking get this into you.



Cheers Interfs, see you next time.

I suppose due to the generational passing along of toxic masculinity and the widely-held belief that men shouldn't talk about/share their feelings, he's trying to provide a space where men can come clean about whatever is troubling them, and have sympathetic listeners who aren't going to judge or make fun. Think of it as an AA for people who aren't addicts? Seems admirable.

In other news, I love how Cobbler shared a video his friend made that features "interviews with cool people", and the first subject is Cobbler himself.

did he have that mullet in the video? because that would sort of contradict the "cool people" aspect.

Okay, that answers it. Guess the record store was right in filing her under C.

Japandroids being called “man cave stuff” is wrong and weird.

They’re a nice modern blend of rock, hardcore, pop punk, and post punk.
