commented on Tell Reebok to #DropRickRoss
Every sneaker company is embattled in some serious human rights/labor violations over the production of their shoes. I agree that the Ross/rape line is a tough one to swallow, but it's strange to me that this is the place where people get up in arms about company ethics vs. daily company policies.
commented on Sound City: Dave Grohl's Homage to an Analog Studio
The end absolutely killed all of the momentum of the beginning history/love, to me. It would've been great if Grohl had spent more time in the footage/archives of Sound City itself and ended the film with him getting the board into his studio, and then maybe archive the performances/recordings he's made in his studio with the board on a box set or site of some sort. Instead, I'm watching Trent Reznor dick around with computers (which kinda goes against the entire point of the film) and jam with a bunch of musicians I have no history with and couldn't care less about. Sure, it's neat to see Grohl living the baseball fantasy camp dream of getting this board saved and to be able to make records with it, but it was the least important part of the film, and it took up a good 1/3rd of the running time.

20 bucks to see that fucking clown Christopher Owens? Ha! Best joke I've read all day.
