I Have a Problem With This AlternativeNation Clickbait Article Title

April 9th, 2019 11:28am Comments off

AlternativeNation – During a recent live conversation, Dave Grohl revealed what he thought of Nirvana’s album before he joined the band, Bleach. Chad Channing was the primary drummer on the album, though Dale Crover did play on a few tracks. Alternative Nation transcribed Grohl’s comments.  “Nirvana on the other hand, had really great songs. They had a record that came out called Bleach, came out in I think 1988 or 1989, before I was in the band. I’m not the original drummer. But they had songs. They had this song called, ‘About a Girl.’ And ‘About a Girl’ was basically, it was like, it was like a Beatles song. It was two and a half minutes long and the melody was beautiful and the rest of their songs were like- ‘screams’ but then they had this beautiful thing. So it was clear like, wow that dude could actually write songs. Everybody loved Nirvana. Nobody knew anything about who they were or what their deal was but fuck, I loved Nirvana. They were cool as shit. That record was amazing and I played it all the time.” Grohl joined Nirvana in 1990, replacing Chad Channing, later going on to drum on Nevermind and In Utero, and becoming Nirvana’s most well known drummer.

I found this article because it came up on my Google feed, which means that Google’s AI has got to improve… I have a huge problem with this bullshit, clickbait article title on the grounds that it is COMPLETELY irrelevant to anything. You get this jokeface Joe Hughes writing a one paragraph article with a completely irrelevant title. Grohl said nothing along the lines of whether or not Nirvana sucked without him. He basically said that when he heard Nirvana he thought they were cool as shit.

So there you have it! “Fake” journalists creating their own irrelevant article title based off some interview to get more clicks. Fuckouttahea.

Ticketmaster Sucks and Sends Shitty Email Reminders

September 21st, 2015 5:53pm No comments

I fucking hate Ticketmaster and they can blow me. If you want to know why, educate yourself what about Pearl Jam did 20 years ago. Today, their website is absolutely heinous, super corporate, and not fun to use. The UI looks like asshole. The fees are out of control. They charge you for every little shit. It’s ridiculous. And then they pull this shit:

I look at my Gmail inbox and got super confused:ticketmastergmailsubject

 

September 21st? That’s today’s date. This show isn’t today. Knowing that I’m a scatterbrained asshole, did I overbook something? Nope. Ticketmaster just sucks. I open the email and they put today’s date in the header like they’re writing me a fucking letter. For real? Don’t they know Gmail summarizes shit onto one line? It makes it SUPER confusing. Idiots. Put one date in the fucking email. The date of the event. That’s it.

PS – Eddie Vedder and Mike McCready will probably make me cry

About Fuckin Time New York City Has a Rock Station Again

August 5th, 2012 4:21pm No comments

I know radio is dead and shit, but it’s just not right for a major city to not have a rock station. From what I heard, I’m pumped: Foo Fighters, 311, Sublime, Nirvana, AIC, Metallica, Stone Temple Pilots, Rage Against the Machine, Live, Bush, Velvet Revolver, Nirvana, Kings of Leon, The Black Keys, Incubus, JET, Audioslave, Cage the Elephant, Green Day, Linkin Park, Nine inch Nails, The Offspring. Great driving music because I’m too lazy to fuck around with an iPod.
