  1. Y’all know you can put futureman on ignore like the rest of us, right?
  2. "Better" is entirely subjective. You prefer the more traditional country sound on the first two records. From a casual listening experience I do, too, actually. I'm pretty sure I'll always listen to his first two records more often than I listen to any of his other records. But he's evolving as a songwriter. And that evolution is going to leave some of his old fans behind, and potentially bring in new fans. I liked a lot of what he did on Sailor's Guide to Earth. I REALLY like the new record. Like I said in my previous post, "Make Art Not Friends" is a straight up goth electro track. Is it good? That's for each individual listener to decide. Personally, I think it might be the best song he's ever written. But I can completely understand why fans of his first two records wouldn't care for it. But even if you don't like it, I think most fans would agree that it's fucking INTERESTING. He challenges his listeners in ways most contemporary pop artists don't, regardless of genre, because deviating from the formula that's been previously successful is fucking risky. That being said, his next record could be an electronic country record, or a punk rock record with Hot Water Music or Avail or Laura Jane Grace, or a wall of sound pop record with a full string section and none of that would surprise me.
  3. I did "DJ" in the sense that I selected the records that I wanted to play, and then I played those records. It is not regular. I've only DJ'd there like three or four times. I don't really DJ anywhere else. They only call when they have a theme night that's kinda country related.
  4. Let me tell you something, pendejo. You pull any of your crazy shit with us, you flash a piece out on the lanes, I'll take it away from you, and stick it up your ass and pull the fucking trigger 'til it goes "click."
  5. I like them both about equally. That being said, I think Isbell plays it a lot safer. He doesn't deviate much from the playbook. He'll vascillate from stripped down acoustic to full band electric. But it's pretty firmly rooted in Americana and he doesn't stray too far from what works for him. Sturgill, otoh, never seems to want to do the same thing twice. He takes A LOT more chances than Isbell. Isbell's never written two songs as different as 'Hero' and 'Make Art Not Friends'. When you take chances and diverge from the genre that initially attracted your core fanbase, you're going to alienate people. Sturgill's more of a rock and roll diva in that he pretends he doesn't give a shit what anyone thinks when he gets great reviews, and then gets super defensive and petty when he's criticized. I love them both, but I don't think it's an apples-to-apples comparison.
  6. My HEB is frequently out of HEB brand organic 2% milk in the half gallon size. I actually think the Mi Tienda brands are marketed to the gringos, and the "ethnic" clientele tends to favor the more cost-conscious Hill Country Fair branded shit.
  7. The solution to that is warm whiskey and soft, comfortable women with flexible morals. Not uninvited digital penetration of wrestlers' anuses (ani?)
  8. Which was a disappointment coming off a top-10, 10 win season. We lost out on the top 6 in-state players and fucking mangled WR, LB, and DB recruiting. This class is the floor of what we should expect at TEXAS given our natural and institutional advantages. Let’s not act like Herman pulled off some sort of miracle. It’s a good class. But let’s not start sucking each other’s dicks just yet.
  9. Stop it. Stop it now. Fuck each and every one of you.
  10. The motherfucker won a goddamn Broyles award, for chrissakes.
  11. In Chicago there is a 4am "country" bar that used to have an element of sketchiness and mild racism to the place. I went there with a group of friends that included a black woman one time. When they were stamping hands at the door they stamped the back of all the white folks' hands, but made her turn her hand around and they stamped her fucking palm. Our group all made the "holy shit" eyes to each other and then we busted out laughing as soon as we got inside. That was fucked up and hilarious at the time.
  12. I guess he could commit to Aggy on his official and shut things down. If that happens he was never gonna come here. On the flip side, if the Brocks were setting up officials, indicating they're going to take all five, and they scheduled us first, would that make you feel confident? I would feel good about that. (I don't feel good about them, regardless)
  13. Good. Get that shit out of the way and try to get the last official visit.
