semiotix: What the fark is this guy hunting, that he needs face paint AND a scope that would let him see a deer a mile past his rifle's range?

I dunno, but if he came stumbling out to coffee at the deer camp looking like that, there would be much laughter at his expense. It would be years before he lived it down. There's a good chance it could become deer camp lore. The guy who accidentally sucked a dick 5 years ago would use this to deflect people retelling his story.

Listening to Jason Aldean is a violation of the 8th Amendment of the United States Constitution.

I alone am best: sendtodave: MattyFridays: blunto: I understand the free speech aspect vs corporate control standpoint, but look at it from the other point of view.  You shouldn't send the french cuisine expert to review burger king or the fine arts expert to review a jackass movie.  This guy reviewed something that he was never going to like.  He wrote his review to partially and didn't take any of this into account in his choice to blast the show.  The advertisers pay for that paper and that writer to have a job.  Be a little more unbiased next time and things might end up more reasonably.

Took the words right out of my mouth.  As soon as I read some of the language this guy used, it was basically the same playbook the food critic used reviewing Guy Fieri's restaurant.  He was being a dick just to be a dick.

"It was like a beer commercial" WHAT THE FARK DO YOU THINK JASON ALDEAN IS, a jam band?!

Low brow shiat should be called what it is, and stupid people that enjoy such shiat should be mocked for their low standards.

And the weasels that sell crap to said stupid people via said low brow shiat shouldn't get to stop said mockery.

Recommend me the some artists you like. I want to judge your taste.

You wouldn't know them.

So wait, writing an honest review about a Jason Aldean concert makes someone a hipster? Face it, you dumbf*cks' definition of a hipster is a cartoon character you latched onto.

This reviewer isn't some dipsh*t stroking off to South by Southwest. He's a legitimate critic who wrote honestly about what is some of the worst music in the last century of American music.

What's hilarious is the advertisers who threatened to pull their money probably agree with the reviewer behind closed doors. There's some sleazy Live Nation promoter who's been to 10 Jason Aldean shows in the past month, and he wants to kill himself.

Why does everyone who wear Under Armour garb always have this same styrofoam tough guy look on their face?

"He struts around the stage with his prop guitar like a rockstar android wiggling his ass in a manner so contrived it makes Madonna look like Miles Davis in comparison."

This sentence is hilarious. Android ass!

2) A simple Google Search for "Travis Kitchens Country Music" would have saved you from embarrassing yourself.

A google search for Travis Kitchens Country Music links to this story, and a whole bunch of unrelated results.  Yes, he's a hugely respected and well known country music critic, GTFO.

No matter what, by his own admission, he went into that concert wanting to do a hit piece,  He was biased and had pre-conceived notions he couldn't let go of.

That may be true but its irrelevant

The paper pulled a piece because of pressure from advertisers. Its a cowardly and shiatty thing to do but probably necessary given the economics of running a newspaper

It's not like they pulled an expose on any number of things of actual import.

Wow, those field goals are on wheels!

I suddenly became more fascinated that anyone would want to see this ham-faced rube on stage.  Is there anything more authentic than this??

Like, are we now at the point in our society that even having someone who's talentless, but at least nice to look at, is too threatening to the american public?

I'm really not into judging others for liking things that I don't like, but you can't convince me that this isn't the musical equivalent of  poop directly from a butt.

I can't imagine how anybody with two brain cells to rub together and any sort of taste in music could give that tripe anything BUT a negative review. It's stupid music for stupid people. You want a positive review? Then  send Cletus or Brandine from the local trailer park.
