•i went to nyc—which is a strange place—so in advance of my trip decided to listen to some staten island, er, shaolin tunes in the form of method man’s 1994 “tical” album. unrelentingly abrasive both in rza’s production and meth’s delivery, it’s definitely a heads-only affair but i've been enjoying it. check the “bring the pain” vid:

•and michael stipe finally came out! mike is probably one of the few guys in the world who can say “i recognize that to have public figures be very open about their sexuality helps some kid somewhere out there”, have it be true, and not sound too conceited—check it out in (the great) michael azzerad’s article in the latest issue of spin. not that it’s something that everyone didn’t already know since “losing my religion” (one of the best songs by anyone ever) and probably before then, but feel good for the guy. also admit how excited you are for the new album.

•i've been digging the narcoleptic haze of the new beach house album, “devotion”, which i find is best enjoyed after dark or in bed. the video for album opener “heart of chambers” is neat:

•and i absolutely could not stop laughing at this:

I admit I'm excited. And I hope Method Man prepared you well.

For some reason I was under the impression that Michael Stipe came out a long time ago.

wow i had to publish your comment...weird.

anyways it's been pretty obvious since before we were born, and apparently he's mentioned his boyfriend previously. but this interview was made out to be his coming out.

although doesn't writing the lyric "am i good in bed/do i give good head" kind of constitute the same thing?
