Hey Anthony. Do you listen to college radio? Have you ever participated or volunteered for a college station? What are your thoughts on the college radio format?
i got my start in college radio. college radio rules. it can be pretty amateurish…most of the time…but that’s part of the appeal. these people aren’t professional hucksters; many of them are just passionate music fans trying to bring attention to stuff they really care about.
Yo! Anthony! Recently, a tumblr account called "xachhill" posted an audio clip that sounds like an audio book says "Jenny Death" several times. The title of the post is "10 08 14." New Death Grips this week? Whatcha feel?
completely random thing to bring up, but why do youtube comments tend to be from the lowest common denominator? i know as a youtube personality you're probably used to it, but it's something i'll never get used to. scrolling down and seeing all these hateful comments. and it's as if your opinion personally insulted them. ridiculous. it's sad because it's usually the nice people that never post comments. we're out here though, trust me.
much of the time, the Internet just allows people to say mean or inappropriate things without any sort of real-life repercussions. people have to watch what they say in-person, and they bottle up any sort of aggression they may have accumulated throughout the day. of course they’re going to release that anger when they feel there will be no consequences for it.
there are great people online, but being nice takes effort, being a dick is easy. while positive, kind comments are nice, it’s a little demanding to ask everyone to say nice things just to counteract the jerks. decent people have their own lives to lead, and there’s no sense in getting sucked up into the senseless drama of nasty comments, beef, or hate on the Internet.
there’ll always be jerks online willing to say A-N-Y-T-H-I-N-G to get a rise out of you. all you can do is brush it off, because the moment you let the negativity get to you, the more negativity there will be. there’s nothing trolls love more than a target who reacts to them, and is visibly upset or shaken.
nasty comments online are about as plentiful as dirt, and you already pay that no mind.
So I watched your review of In The Aeroplane Over The Sea, and the video you did explaining your hesitation about reviewing it - both were very good, but one thing I'd mention is the people poking fun at ITAOTS are usually doing it from a place of loving the music themselves, sort of in the way you feel comfortable bagging on your best friends. At least, I know that's how it is for my friends and I (who haven't been above mountaintops jokes in the past).
very true, and thank you for watching both videos! :-)
You should do a video on whether or not it's ok to compare a band's albums to their best or most famous album. Unless you've already made a video on that. If you have can you show me? I don't wanna look because ima lazy piece of shit.
it’s very ok. if it weren’t for those famous albums, we wouldn’t anticipate other albums.
Good evening Anthony! I've seen in your last vinyl purchase that you bought The Eye by KUKL! That's a cult post-punk/avant-garde band of Björk, did you know that? It's also a very rare record indeed. Björk has been in several groups before going solo, her past is obscure. As a music lover too, I definitely recommend you to check more of her music, she's a unique artist, like no one else.
Hi Anthony, I know you did a video of this 2 years ago talking about your take on streaming songs (spotify), but I was wondering if your take has changed since then? Do you feel it's even worth buying mp3s anymore when you can just pay $10 a month?
i guess i’d rather own the mp3s for now just in case i don’t have an internet connection
Dear Big Scary Volcano.... if I am completely in love with an artist's earlier work but dislike their newer stuff, should the latter detail stop me from seeing them live? (The artist in question is SBTRKT by the way)
Dear Anthony, do you like moving whilst listening to music? I, personally can't enjoy The Money Store or Shaking The Habitual (my favorite albums, respectively) while not moving rapidly so it is hard for me to imagine you enjoying them without moving. Thank you.
