Pitchfork Cobaggery

We recently mentioned the film DiG, about the Dandy Warhols and Brian Jonestown Massacre, which Three Bulls! actually SAW at the Sundance Film Festival. Since we knew something of the two bands, we knew what was kinda true about the movie and what was full of shit. See the Dandy Warhols do this annoying as hell shtick about the drugs they do etc. etc. but when you listen to their albums, even amidst all the jokes and whatever, there are always good, fun and cool songs, and they really try to perform them live- in short they are a professional band doing their thing. Nothing could be more douchey than some Pitchfork reviewer reviewing the new Warhols CD through the lens of the horribly inaccurate yet entertaining DiG. I give you Marc Hogan and his masterpiece of hackery. Hell, he might even be right about the album, but everything about his piece is just wrong. He says the band is a disgrace because of their attitude about pretending to not try. have they not always been a joke band with a full of shit shtick? What is different now than then? Do they only pretend to record albums? Do they only pretend to tour for years and years? Oh woops, it is implied that they do lots of drugs then it is implied that they really are only pretending to do lots of drugs. Who the hell cares, this has been their shtick for the LAST FIVE ALBUMS. WHAT IS YOUR POINT? I HATE YOU!!!!
