    EPISODE 365 — Bongo vs. Bongos

    Amazing lineup. On my birthday, no less! Who needs presents when this exists?
  2. For the record Snapes did not know about Kozelek's request to not interview his colleagues: "Instead, I emailed my questions and approached his peers for supporting interviews, only later discovering that Kozelek has previously requested that journalists should not interview his associates for pieces about him." He also was demeaning and condescending in the email exchanges with Snapes: "Universal Themes documents several broken teeth and Kozelek’s attempts to do more exercise, which we discussed in our email exchange. Was he feeling any fitter? 'Yeah. Wait ’til you see me up there [on stage]. You’re gonna be like a cat in heat.' Apropos of nothing, he repeatedly issued instructions to watch for traffic. 'Listen to your elders. I’m 48 and I have wisdom. I’ve seen girls laid out on the street with an ambulance picking them up because they are crossing the street with those stupid headphones on.' And: "'You think you’re the only person who wants to get a face-to-face interview with me? Get in line. I’m the best person you never met and one day, if you ever meet me, you’ll probably want to have my baby.' That’s Mark Kozelek, via email, which is the way he chooses to conduct his interviews" Source: http://www.theguardi...-bitch-on-stage
  3. I thought Snapes' response should be posted here. "But in this life, Kozelek trades in sucker-punches. He impugns online "bitching and whining", but hides behind one-way email exchanges, balks at the idea of his peers speaking about him and issues tirades (and sometimes, sexual advances) from the cowardly remove of the stage, with the get-out clause that it’s a performance. He can use sexually violent language to reduce female critics to the status of groupies, knowing that while male musicians’ misogynist acts are examined for nuance and defended as traits of "difficult” artists, women and those who call them out are treated as hysterics who don’t understand art. “The world don’t owe us shit, I learned that real fuckin’ young,” he sings on Universal Themes’ Little Rascals. If anything remains to separate Kozelek from his work, it’s that his music preaches that the least we owe one another is decency." Source: http://www.theguardi...-bitch-on-stage
  4. I was hoping for an Alan Thicke cameo when Besser said the words "unusually thick."
  5. Great episode and such a great muuusical guest!! It would be amazing if they could somehow get Father John Misty on the show. Also, Angel Olsen or Sharon Van Etten would be pretty sweet.
