A month ago, my internet colleague (and dare I say, friend?) Joel posted a thrilling article detailing some of today’s worst music on his infinitely RSS-able blog, Persona Don Dada. Not only was it an impassioned and hilarious analysis of a disgusting corner of the zeitgeist, it inspired many outraged fans of these “musicians” to voice their complaints in the form of comments. This was supplemented by Joel, many of his friends, and myself responding to the fans and offering our own input. Do yourself a favor, read this post and be sure to read all the comments at the bottom as well. It’s incredibly worth it. More info about PDD is just a hop, skip, and a jump away.
With that done, you should regularly check out PDD. Unfortunately, scathing posts and comedic reviews like this aren’t as frequent as I’d like. But there’s still a good number of them. And fortunately, the bulk of the content is dedicated to Joel’s weekly mixtapes which include such themes as Songs About Ladies, Jus’ 4 Laffs, and My Other Car Is A Synthesizer. If you can handle Joel’s unusual obsession with Roy Wood, then these mixes are all amazing. So check his blog the fuck out. It’s waaaaaay better than this one.
