I wonder if all the clothes ended up in that filing cabinet, that's certainly not how I've ever used a photocopier.

boxedjoy, Friday, 23 December 2011 20:59 (nine years ago) link

so where are the weekend's earlier mixtapes available (they were self-released, so are they made legally available online)?

Daniel, Esq., Friday, 23 December 2011 21:00 (nine years ago) link

initiation is A++ killer

j crunchwrap supreme, Friday, 23 December 2011 21:22 (nine years ago) link

what makes these mix tapes?

mizzell, Friday, 23 December 2011 21:54 (nine years ago) link

tons of filler

I was gonna say li'l r&b elves

aesthetic partisan (Shakey Mo Collier), Friday, 23 December 2011 23:48 (nine years ago) link

i think this is okay -- still think house of balloons is the only thing anyone needs from dude right now

"initiation" & "the fall" are dope tho

v-shasty, Saturday, 24 December 2011 01:18 (nine years ago) link

"glass table girls" might make my top 10

v-shasty, Saturday, 24 December 2011 01:18 (nine years ago) link

is it weekend or weakened?

marc iv, Saturday, 24 December 2011 03:42 (nine years ago) link

this artist is the biggest joke critical phenomenon of 2011

joey joe joe junior shabadoo, Saturday, 24 December 2011 22:20 (nine years ago) link

is someone gonna do a weeknd, frank ocean, lana del rey, azealia banks and kreayshawn poll at some point? anyone else i've left off? asap rocky?

degas-dirty monet (lex pretend), Saturday, 24 December 2011 22:31 (nine years ago) link

azealia will win in a landslide, inexplicably appears to be critically bulletproof so far

joey joe joe junior shabadoo, Saturday, 24 December 2011 22:36 (nine years ago) link

erm are you saying that you yourself do not exist?

degas-dirty monet (lex pretend), Saturday, 24 December 2011 22:39 (nine years ago) link

Actually this is the only "Weekend" anyone needs:

i saw an mtv news segment where soulja boy named a weekend track as his favorite song of 2011, i need to add that to evan r's comprehensive dossier of COMPELLING EVIDENCE THAT THE WEEKND IS A REAL WORLD URBAN MUSIC PHENOMENON

some dude (Mr. Stevenson #2), Friday, 30 December 2011 22:36 (nine years ago) link

was listening to 'initiation' on speakers and it's a pretty scary song actually

nice catch cuauhtemoc blanco niño (dayo), Friday, 30 December 2011 23:07 (nine years ago) link

isn't 'scary' like one of the main things they're supposed to be? why actually?

some dude (Mr. Stevenson #2), Saturday, 31 December 2011 01:00 (nine years ago) link

it was just a harsh vibe idk

nice catch cuauhtemoc blanco niño (dayo), Saturday, 31 December 2011 01:05 (nine years ago) link

just felt kind of claustrophobic, like you're having a bad trip at a house party of someone you don't know and your friends have all bounced and you're just there, trippin, alone

nice catch cuauhtemoc blanco niño (dayo), Saturday, 31 December 2011 01:05 (nine years ago) link

seriously, is this paraphrased from their official press materials

some dude (Mr. Stevenson #2), Saturday, 31 December 2011 01:25 (nine years ago) link

yeah damnit I almost had you

nice catch cuauhtemoc blanco niño (dayo), Saturday, 31 December 2011 01:29 (nine years ago) link

in all serious they go for an aesthetic, they achieve that aesthetic, they don't color too much outside the dotted line, what's so wrong with that

nice catch cuauhtemoc blanco niño (dayo), Saturday, 31 December 2011 01:32 (nine years ago) link

I guess I could try to spin some yarn about how it sounds like dragons attacking a castle defended by armored polar bears if that would trick you into listening to it

nice catch cuauhtemoc blanco niño (dayo), Saturday, 31 December 2011 01:32 (nine years ago) link

i wasn't playing any game about why what you're saying about it means it sucks. i just thought the use of 'actually' was odd since you were saying something that fits into the conventional knowledge descriptions of them. n/m.

some dude (Mr. Stevenson #2), Saturday, 31 December 2011 01:35 (nine years ago) link

heh yeah I mean everything that's said about them is just a variation on plax's 'end of a party through smoke' and nothing he's done since has made that description any less accurate, well I haven't heard the new mixtape

but yeah I'm not gonna try some heroic rescuing of this dude from that pigeonhole

nice catch cuauhtemoc blanco niño (dayo), Saturday, 31 December 2011 01:42 (nine years ago) link

would you say that you're LOVIN THE CREWWWW?

some dude (Mr. Stevenson #2), Saturday, 31 December 2011 01:48 (nine years ago) link

idk I don't have the mood to immerse myself in a bad party too often these days, I'm probably just lukewarm

weeknd is so terrible

joey joe joe junior shabadoo, Saturday, 31 December 2011 04:32 (nine years ago) link

i cant think of a group i dislike more, seriously

joey joe joe junior shabadoo, Saturday, 31 December 2011 04:33 (nine years ago) link

all the "end of a party through smoke" stuff makes me wonder whether the people saying really go to many house parties? cuz it's some self-pitying, self-absorbed nonsense that doesn't bear much reality to the actual dregs of the house parties, which are quite nice tbh, sitting around chatting shit with your friends, who are good people, and playing tunes. if the house party was bad wouldn't you have bounced long before the end?

degas-dirty monet (lex pretend), Saturday, 31 December 2011 07:48 (nine years ago) link

sometimes i try to imagine yr interior life and all i can do is feel sad and sorta puzzled

tumblr wights (є(٥_ ٥)э), Saturday, 31 December 2011 07:54 (nine years ago) link

I think its a u.s. / u.k. thing

joey joe joe junior shabadoo, Saturday, 31 December 2011 07:58 (nine years ago) link

no i think some people just like to buy into what they perceive to be some sort of romance about self-loathing and it's total bullshit really

youre right nobody should ever be allowed to feel sad

nice catch cuauhtemoc blanco niño (dayo), Saturday, 31 December 2011 12:49 (nine years ago) link

this record is an embarrassment to any artist who has ever attempted to approximate emotion in song, tho

chatting

judith, Saturday, 31 December 2011 16:14 (nine years ago) link

There are the parties where you have had do much to drink that the final hours blur past you in an alarming haze and you wake up the next morning unsure how you ended up where you are (and sometimes who you're with)

Then there are the parties where you're talking deep nonsense or superficial nonsense with people whose time you enjoy, where you planned to leave in 30 minutes and when you next looked at the clock hours had passed

Then there are the parties where you took something and you are certain everyone is judging you for it and you just want everyone to shut up because you know that when the cops show up they are beelining straight to you and fucking you up, and you would leave but someone stopped doors from existing while your back was turned

All of these scenarios are beside the point of this thread, which is that The Weeknd is mediocre and forgettable

OH NOES, Saturday, 31 December 2011 16:23 (nine years ago) link

only take things at house parties if there are lots of people you know and trust around! then the doors-stopping-existing thing is just incredibly funny instead of scary. in fact those parties should ideally always lead to scenario ii)

yeah I mean I never remember I have the weeknd in my itunes until this thread gets bumped, just don't understand why they invite so much hate, guess people feel like they take away valuable listening time from the new boldy james mixtape or w/e

what's the best, most precise analysis of what's so wrong with the weeknd that you guys have read yet?

because they're terrible trash that should never have been foisted on our generation & its galling that you would mention a worthwhile artist in relation to them even if just to troll me

joey joe joe junior shabadoo, Saturday, 31 December 2011 19:35 (nine years ago) link

if a beautiful woman tried to have sex with me but said we had to listen to the weeknd, i would politely decline

it has the emotional range of a 16 year old's furtive make-out session on his couch while after-school cartoons play during the small window between the end of the school day and his parents' arrival home after work.

joey joe joe junior shabadoo, Saturday, 31 December 2011 19:38 (nine years ago) link

it is like seeing the party through smoke from a party guest's hair catching fire from one of the gas burners when you accidentally lean against the dials on the stove

joey joe joe junior shabadoo, Saturday, 31 December 2011 19:40 (nine years ago) link

it's like a knife fight between Morbs and gabbneb.

i haven't read anything yet that adequately explains why the weeknd is so amazing and better than [other r&b around atm]. different, yeah, but not better.

the weeknd is like a virgin's best guess at approximating sexuality based on the distant memory of having flipped through quiet storm on the radio once a couple years back

The Weeknd is doing his own thing and it isn't really anything to get all worked up over since he's very easily avoidable.
