    Happy to oblige, Dave.

    The cello rock band Rasputina makes mention of Space Ghost in their song 'the Olde Headboard', which was the single off their 1998 sophomore album How We Quit the Forest.

    Just to cover all bases, I'll mention "Space Cheese" by Space Ghost the band.

    She's a success with Rolling Stone, a publication that hasn't been culturally relevant for a while now. And yeah Entertainment Weekly and other gossip mags that happen to review music too for some reason probably like it too.

    That means a whole lot of nothing.

    Fantastic? Maybe. Quality? I would strongly argue on the contrary.

    I'm kind of torn. I see what you guys are saying. Pop music is all about the melody, and she certainly has lots of catchy songs. Most garbage pop songs are one-hit wonders that can't be sustained over time. She is beginning to prove she is much more than that.

    Whether or not making pop music in an effort only to be catchy, connect with fans, and sell records is a noble cause is an entirely different topic. I don't see any artistic credibility in that.

    So she's making quality pop music. I'm not gonna argue semantics over that...

    Were they on pizza boxes specifically? Well no. But are you really going to deny that those are not two extremely heavily marketed artists as well?

    Are we comparing Eminem to Taylor Swift?

    I actually like Pavement.

    The problem with the Pavement/Dinosaur Jr crowd is that they would all declare it crap if they suddenly sold a million records.

    Look what they did to REM. Successful? No thanks, we want to dye our hair black and sit in a corner and be depressed with Robert Smith, until he sells out and now we'll go cuddle with the latest secret band.

    These dudes are all the same. It's about not being popular.

    Am I getting everybody mad yet? LOL...Not trying. I just can't stand the degrading of good pop music. Taylor Swift isn't Gerardo, okay?

    My two favorite bands are probably Dinosaur Jr. and the Red Hot Chili Peppers. There are plenty of people who don't fit into your cute stereotype. But hey, that's fun!

    "Invisible Touch" was a sell-out tune if there ever was one. The sappy "In Too Deep" didn't do anything for me, either.

    I don't think that's fair. My favorite band is arguably the most popular band in the world. In fact, most of the music I listen to is pretty popular. (as an aside, I don't think many in the Pitchfork crowd, who I could probably be fairly described as one of them, realize all those bands are incredibly popular.)

    REM was turned on because frankly they started to suck eventually. I'm just calling a spade a spade. Taylor Swift isn't bad because she's popular, she's bad because her music sucks and is fluff for teenage girls.

    I mean yeah I know who the record store guy is. I've met the guy who works in the basement at Shake It Records.

    I think you might just be mistaken in characterizing a few of us as that guy, Dom.

    Poor music and fluff for teenage girls usually go hand-in-hand, don't they?

    Not always! Teenage girls don't like The Grateful Dead, for example, LOL.

    Taylor Swift is okay. Harmless, inoffensive country pop.
    "Since I've been with the Reds in 1989, we've never had a farm system this loaded," Bowden said. "If we were the New York Yankees and had unlimited dollars, we could have traded for Colon, (Jeff) Weaver, Rolen, (Cliff) Floyd, (Kenny) Rogers and Finley and gotten them all -- and still held onto our top five prospects. That's an amazing statement."

    Taylor Swift's music doesn't suck.

    I realize it's about taste- but it isn't awful. It's not Rush, you know?
