      The fact that no one picked out the PlayStation™ boot screen sample is pretty upsetting. I guess I’ll have to listen to the rest of this tomorrow.

  2. Erik Stinson

      the most self indulgent thing i’ve seen on this website 

      i heard three minutes

  6. Stephen Michael McDowell

      i thought this same thing, like ‘omg i have never hated these three ppl before but i definitely do now’

      i don’t believe in ‘hate’ and am intensely interested in this album, so i continued to listen

      now this is one of my favorite things and probably my favorite commentary on the album i have seen/heard/read so far…

      going to do a follow-up comment when i am done listening i think…

      AH: Do you think that Millennials are like more bi than other people?

      DF: More like willing to explore it. Yeah, I do.

      AH: What do you attribute that to?

      DF: Uhh, neoliberal internet shit.


      ES: What.

  8. kacie kim

      it was funny good job

  9. Stephen Michael McDowell

      i enjoyed this

      felt continuous marginal-to-extreme interest during all discussion periods

      felt i related to or had thought most things discussed in later parts of this

      things i wished i heard but didn’t:
      — [something] re odd future/the younger (13-19yo) kids who may be attracted to this via association with ‘horrorcore’ or ‘nihilist’ ‘bratrap’ despite the fact that this is not that at all

      — further discussion about lyrics as opposed to ‘umbrella critiques’ of each song (but i assume they were drunk and just kind of vibing, so ‘no bigs’)

      — [something] re the fact that the listeners are three ‘white guys’ listening to r&b album, idk…

      don’t feel like extrapolating

      i recommend listening to this ‘listening party’/album

      they talk about “what if we were three ‘brothers’ listening to this with our wives” in one part. that kind of addresses the white guy thing in a way.

      i’m also interested in what people think of frank ocean with respect to his odd future affiliation.
