Quick, before anyone else steals it! First comment!
Where’s the ever-needed like button? Because I need to give some.
The Like button is up there where it says “Share this comic!” just between the tags and the callbacks. Thanks for Liking, Michael!
Ah, the danger of not refreshing a page before posting a comment. Jackson beat me to the information by…. almost 2 hours.
Aw, I can’t see it.
If this screenshot is any help, it should look something like this:
Oh, I get it now, my web blocker is preventing me from seeing the button, preventing me from giving this comic an ever-needed Like. D:
It’s below the “CALLBACKS:” section and above the “Tags:” section.
A lot of current music is horrible. I agree with that, Jamesy wamesy.
James has a new nickname!!!
The only real exception is obscure internet music like nerdcore.
The only GOOD music is Minecraft music.
It’s a time machine!
We’re doing the time warp again!
I love this one. The Yellow Submarine reference is hilarious… and a perfect comeback to James.
I think James should tell us more about how repetition is bad. Again. For the Nth time.
Repetition isn’t inherently bad. It’s not only inevitable, but desirable: can you imagine writing a musical piece without using the same pitch or duration for each note? The result would be make even the cacophanous sonic assault that is “noise rock” sound like legitimate music. Moreover, the genuine Postmodernist knows that while “there is nothing new under the sun,” paradoxically, genuine repetition is impossible, as the second (repeated) experience of a phenomenon is necessarily new by virtue of its not being the first. The inherent novelty in every moment can be given form and structure by premeditated acts of repetition: order out of chaos.
Repetition is only undesirable when taken to excess. Which is precisely what modern music is doing.
Hmm, James looks pretty good without a shirt. How mainstream pop culture of him…
looking good without a shirt is mainstream pop culture? I should hope not…
Oh, right, not wearing any clothing on your upper torso is totally selling out. Before LMFAO, no one was ever aware of their own sexiness, and before Right Said Fred no one was ever too sexy for their shirt. Pop music was, in fact, the originator of such concepts! It is not a human thing; it is a populist thing, and I have violated all of my principles forever, the end.
Now come on, everybody looks good without a shirt.
Yup. 100% sure she’s high.
I’m with you on that.
