I watched his stand up. It was not funny.

Only thing worth the time was a Tracy Morgan story, but you know, that is more because of Tracy than Glover.

"Freaks and Geeks" was actually alright, in a kinda lol @ nerdy guy trying to be Weezy way, but I heard Camp and good god is it awful. Like every other bar has a tumblr reference and songs are full of lines about how he doesn't brag about his Emmy. I love the dude on Community and find his stand-up to be decent, but please lord do not cancel his show so he has more time for this.

The only rap-related albums I noticed in Paste website's recently released list of their fave 2011 albums:

35. Childish Gambino – Camp

48. Drake – Take Care

http://stereogum.com/890842/pastes-top-50-albums-of-2011/list/

Funny stuff. Those pasty folks love their Bon Iver more of course.

Another Suburbanite, Wednesday, 30 November 2011 14:24 (nine years ago) link

I'm not going to go to bat for Glover because let's face it, a large amount (if not all) of his rap persona is tied up in being as corny as humanly possible. I really like the "Bonfire" video, though.

OH NOES, Wednesday, 30 November 2011 14:41 (nine years ago) link

I just remembered that his record features an ILM baiting line, "the only black guy at a Sufjan concert".

So tempted to liveblog this record, "my name's not Mumford, I ain't trying to have sons".

dude is terrible, yes, and I am starting to regret impulse-buying his album in a fit of contrarianism... but he's still less annoying to me than Drake

OH NOES, Wednesday, 30 November 2011 16:23 (nine years ago) link

I think the worst of both worlds is that two minute interlude thing on Camp where Glover does his best to channel Drake by singing over a string section while whining.

Love him on Community, listened to this once and couldn't get through it. First couple of tracks were alright but really I lost interest when I realised he wasn't attempting to be the new Will Smith.

Plus, he has all of the rape-y punchlines of Tyler, the Creator, except more obnoxious. Taking shots at some girl on Tumblr who called your use of rape jokes rape-y is NAGL.

he's really really terrible but if there isn't already there's gonna be an infinite feedback loop of PEOPLE SAY I'M TERRIBLE, I'M GONNA RAP ABOUT IT -> man, this guy is fucking terrible -> PEOPLE SAY I'M TERRIBLE, I'M GONNA RAP ABOUT IT

i think the solution here is for everyone to stop watching/caring about COMMUNITY. i'm sorry, but it has to be done for the greater good of the nation.

v-shasty, Wednesday, 30 November 2011 22:59 (nine years ago) link

wait he has a 75 on metacritic, he should stfu

if xxl says this about you -- Taken on the whole, Camp is full of top-tier lyricism, honesty, uncertainty and triumph. -- then you no longer get to complain about people telling you not to rap because you're a nerd or w/e

v-shasty, Wednesday, 30 November 2011 23:02 (nine years ago) link

it's weird to me that for being a comedian, his music is incredibly humorless. like, i'm not saying he needs to be doing weird al shit, but his self-crucifixion complex is so off-putting. like, his music isn't even as funny as das racist, let alone, like, ludacris (at least when he was good)

"Microbrew(ery)" is a term that refers only to the production capacity. "Craft" is more about the brewer's approach to how the beer is made. Obviously there's a lot of overlap -- most craft beers come from what are technically microbreweries -- but the terms aren't exactly synonymous. (Some parallels with "indie," probably.)

jaymc, Monday, 12 December 2011 22:53 (nine years ago) link

Anyway, I'm like a week late to this thread, and I still haven't heard any Childish Gambino -- though I did randomly see last week's musical episode of Community -- but I wanted to respond to this:

Like if you want comedy rap, this is at least a step above like MC LARS HORRISHIT or whatever, but there's a whole school of MCs--Copywrite, High & Mighty, Apathy, Bumpy Knuckles, J-Zone, Celph Titled, Chino XL, even Joe Buddden--that do the constant hammering-away-at-punchlines thing. Sorry they're not ADORABLE and on NBC's Pomplamoose-comedy half-hour sitcom, Tumblr whites.

This makes it sound like people are deliberately choosing Childish Gambino over those other acts. The fact that Glover is on TV doesn't make him better, but it does make him a million times more visible. Most people really don't want to spend a lot of time digging for music they might like, so the guy who's on a network sitcom has a distinct advantage. None of this is Glover's fault. And none of his fans are claiming that he's better than a dozen rappers they've never heard of.

I'm just saying I've never heard anyone in the NW ever use the phrase "craft beer".

feel like microbrews are like skinny jeans or the arcade fire or something...there was a point when that mighta been a hipster reference point but today I can totally see a frat dude in skinny jeans w/ a local beer rocking out to the arcade fire.

i have never heard 'craft beer' in conversation ever, have not heard 'microbrew' much but then i don't really want to live in a world where people talk about what they're drinking beyond a "what'll you have?" or "i have some ____ in the fridge if you want any"

tumblr brew

t. silaviver, Tuesday, 13 December 2011 17:20 (nine years ago) link

yeah i haven't heard 'microbrew' in years. now i think most ppl just refer to beer by its name (ala "i have some ___ in the fridge"). honestly with the ppl i hang out with, the term i hear most is 'good beer' or 'decent beer.' like, "i'll get a case of pbr but you might want to get a sixer of something decent, too." esp since now you can get stuff that's like maybe $1-2 more a six-pack than PBR, miles better, and available at the gas station (if you live in some enlightened state where beer can be purchased in gas stations).

i think too if you live some place with a lot of local breweries then the novelty of drinking something other than bud or pbr has long since evaporated and ppl just get w/e they like or is on special

river wolf, Tuesday, 13 December 2011 17:28 (nine years ago) link

such a good derail. anyways - i think once people get into a local microbrew (people still say that up here) the tendency is to stick with it, or failing that something equally snobby/expensive.

sir thermo of thinwall, Tuesday, 13 December 2011 17:49 (nine years ago) link

Well, all kinds of people like good beer; only certain kind nerd out about it

joey joe joe junior shabadoo, Tuesday, 13 December 2011 17:54 (nine years ago) link

"Craft beer" seems p. widespread to me, from restaurant menus to local media features.

In conversation, though, I think I mostly say it when I'm referring to a bar or restaurant, like "They have a decent craft selection." (Though I might also just say, "They have a good beer list.")
