i saw the channel, it was not a good look.
also ive only been on this website for a couple days (posting)... and ive already been tagged by users i dont know, talking about weird memes that dont make sense to me in this forum. The internet makes memes? This forum has memes? youre mad about memes? you must be a miserable soul.
@WildlifeRooms please see this post for all future responses, thanks.
Yo, you're new, it's cool. Relaaaaaaaax. Enjoy talking with people in the forums without fighting, name calling, and you'll find a great place to talk about music. But defending that clown ain't it. Take a few steps back and talk about music with some depth or color or context ... it's new to Ronny McDonald fans, but it's good for the soul.
sorry i got heated i just enjoy the fact that he doesn’t get talked about here, it’s a big reason of what makes any youtube or reddit music section so unpleasant.
im just really confused. Needledrop has always been a really fun source of music discovery for me. Like every publication sometimes i disagree with him but thats fine. he seems like a genuinely good guy. its a shame that the fader had to make such a silly witchhunt article about him. from what i know that time for him was actually really hard mentally.
im not trying to cause a ruckus, im super confused why people hate him so much in this thread. if i post a pitchfork review is that okay?
It wasn't a witch hunt.....
please stop saying “witch-hunt” in reference to men being held accountable to shit, it’s wrong on every conceivable level.
why don’t you just talk about your own experience with the album? why do you need to post someone else’s review?
i can call it a wizard hunt then?
Because the article wasn't a "witchhunt" -- the guy has espoused some really awful things online and instead of apologizing or seeing the problem, he deflected/ran/lied/etc; he's gone on some horrific podcasts with some horrific people, and he's used his voice and platform in some really suspect ways. And that's a charitable reading of the entire situation. He's not the victim here.
Is it really that confusing?
i can, but do you people not EVER talk about reviews? like im asking straight up, are reviews not chill on this website?
I tried, y'all.
If you go through this thread, there's lots of people talking about lots of reviews of this. Those were just closer to the release of the album since most publications don't release reviews a month or two after the album came out.
if they are by him then i’m just gonna say that they aren’t chill.
im feeling really patronized by this community right now.
So from what im able to gather, i crossed some taboo line about posting reviews. so far i know for sure they hate the needle drop, nobody has really answered me if i should just avoid review discussion on this community all together.
i feel like people are assuming i know im doing something against the rules, but everyone is just freaking out at me instead of explaining the rules around posting reviews?
"I'm feeling patronized" says the person that continues to patronize everyone in this thread
Nobody has said posting and talking about reviews is bad. Everyone is expressing how against seeing videos from that shitty dude and why we don't want to see his shit.
Dude - you can post reviews. People post reviews in threads all the time. We just avoid TND because he sucks and has a shitty history of sucking and cozying up with some terrible people.
you’re not doing anything against the rules. you can post reviews and you can even post videos of the needledrop, just don’t expect people to like it? because a lot of people here care about when people do terrible shit
Alright, im going to stop talking about the needle drop on here because it obviously causes issues. the last thing ill say on the matter is everyone has said things or has a past that people can dig up and make it look dark and bad.
Hell even Matty has a history of saying things that a lot of people found problematic. lots of people have issues with things he has said about woman, how woman have been portayed in 1975 music videos, and tweets about islamophobia. BUT because we have greater context on who he is, and what he ACTUALLY believes, some of us are able to give him the benefit of the doubt.
Because he took accountability for his actions, apologized, and made a concerted effort to learn, understand, and get better.
The gulf of difference between the two is the entire point.
I can't speak for the nebulous "Everyone," but Matty owned up to the shitty things he said and apologized. TND just sent his horde of people to attack the journalist and has been completely unapologetic and defensive of his past. He sucks. Let's move on.
Lol that whole interaction was wild to watch
