Fool Fighter 2: The Reckoning
Hey, kids -- look who took the time to comment on the "Fool Fighter" post from last night:
You contribute to Village Voice and you're calling me an idiot? You know who I work for, right?
Anyway, I think it's an idiotic argument to note that Foo Fighters performed with and were remixed by Deadmau5, neither of which was likely their choice. Labels chose remixers, smart guy. The Academy chooses performers smart guy.
If anything, Grohl's comments were also commentary on the Academy's choice of his stage-mates. Ya dig? Read between the lines, oh un-idiotic one.
That he chose this time, when EDM had its brightest prime time showing ever, to make his point again was no coincidence to me or other observers in the media (Google it).
Finally, I'm an idiot who's been writing about music for 20 years.

Well, hello, Dennis.
Actually, yes, I know exactly who you work for and since I don't contribute to the Voice anymore I think it hardly matters. (Note: LA Weekly is owned by Village Voice Media.) Your column was comically ridiculous since it was obvious to anybody with two brain cells to rub together what Grohl was getting at. You're simply trying to justify the unjustifiable right now because the very legitimate public backlash against your fucking dumb diatribe -- the one you spent however long banging out based entirely on a faulty premise -- has you all in a tizzy.
And I don't give a damn how long you've been writing about music (or how many high-and-mighty "professional" music critics inexplicably saw it your way). You were wrong on this and you're either too stupid or too arrogant to admit it.
Thanks for commenting and have a nice day. : )
