    Have only heard this song played by The Roots with children's instruments. I didn't care for it.

    Didn't want to derail the thread, but yeah I had some problems with that Chrono comment.

    Not taking animated films seriously is like not taking electronic music seriously. Performance isn't everything.

    now that i've hooked you all with Grade A troll bait, i'll clarify.

    i'm referring more specifically to the phenomenon of taking animated films that are created to appeal to children and then trying to market them to adults as a "movie you could take your kids to see!"

    i think it does a disservice to the animated form to try and meet both audiences in the middle. you don't make the best animated films for children or the best animated films for adults when you try and combine a visual style and characters for children with some mildly adult plot lines.

    this is basically the entire Disney/Pixar business strategy so it's clearly working for them. and i have loved Pixar movies throughout my childhood and teen years. i haven't seen many since Finding Nemo though and it's because as i get older they're not as successful as tiptoeing that line.

    sometimes i think i really like Wall-E and sometimes i think i never want to see it again.

    Oh man, I got ripped to shreds by my sister-in-law the other weekend. My niece couldn't understand why Wall-E had to clean up garbage and why people couldn't walk or live on Earth.

    I had to explain to her that humans are disgusting and selfish. Didn't think she'd tell her mommy right away.

    I'm not putting spoiler tags on this because no one alive should have to live another minute believing this song is anything but total shit.

    the production on that whole Best Coast album was fantastic

    but of course, it was Jon Brion

    i'm the opposite and thinks Wavves is trash

    I'll never understand how that band got so big. It would be easier to comprehend if they were worse. They were supposed to toil in XRT obscurity for decades, playing clubs packed with grayhairs. Not headlining arenas.

    I think we discussed them and Band of Horses at the Teensboards incarnation of this forum trying to unravel this mystery.

    Yeah, that song has "peaked at #8 on the Adult Contemporary charts" written all over it.

    That might not be a terrible song if they didn't feel the need to go full on Deschanel all over it.

    This has been getting on my nerves for years now but I never found out what it was until today. The version of it we got and still have to hear all the time is even more annoying.

    So how much of a problem are things like that? I don't want to be a prude but does everything erotic actually have to be so obvious.

    I actually can be a bit of a weird-o and reactionary about that kinda shit. Is DFW right that if you're vain you'll die a thousand deaths before they ever throw dirt over you? I sorta buy that. I try very hard to just accept the way my body is and have never really dealt with any severe self-consciousness when it comes to my appearance. That also probably has something to do with my gender and general apathy though.

    I don't know. There are certainly benefits to women's sexual liberation but there also obvious drawbacks that are not at all the fault of the average, everyday woman walking the streets. Conservatives blab all the time about how we are creating a society of entitlement, which is egregious but not entire inaccurate. It just isn't necessarily fiscal entitlement. Even though that dude at UC-Santa Barbara was a sociopath there is something really fucking odd about a 22-year old feeling entitled to love and affection. That is sort of engrained into all of us a little bit.

    I always try to think about how fucking hard it would be for me to have a daughter. It actually freaks me out. I mean, having a child must be the most incredible feeling coupled with the most crippling and terrifying responsibility. But that would be even more intense probably if I had a girl. Like yes, every girl should be able to walk down the street wearing whatever they want and never be subjected to any form of sexual/physical/emotional ridiculing or belittlement. And I would never, ever subject any woman to that sort of treatment. But it is an unfortunate reality that every woman should at least be weary of.

    And I don't really think the best route towards gender equality and sexual liberation is to over-sexify (lol) everything. I'm not someone who cares that woman wear too much makeup or something. That is none of my business. But there is just a crazy amount of pressure for women to be 'hot' or 'sexy' or 'whatever' that starts at an incredibly young age. It's just kind of unsettling. I don't know.

    There an increasing awareness on the DePaul campus lately about sexual violence. It's such a pervasive and fucked up problem. I don't know what I am saying anymore other than basically 'god damn it!'
