Re: Coronavirus

That's only a sign of failure of proper regulation of capitalism and proper social safety net. You think when we get a good Covid antiviral or vaccine, it'll be because the government funded a researcher, or because some greedy capitalist thought it'd make him or her money?

Re: Fiona Apple - Fetch the Bolt Cutters

I’ve been re-listening to Apple’s entire discography since FTBC came out, and man I underrated her other work so much. I don’t think she has a single bad album in her discography now, and she’s become one of my overall favorite artists of all-time.

Re: Fiona Apple - Fetch the Bolt Cutters

Fiona Apple is one of those artists where her AM scores (pre-FTBC) don't seem to accurately reflect how popular she is among contemporary critics. All of her first four albums may be in the top 2,000, but zero are in the top 500 and she also has no songs in the top 1,000. That doesn't feel quite ri...
