- Idolator praises a blog called “Hipster Runoff” as said blog “discusses” the blog-driven “popularity” of Animal Collective. “Blog, blog.”

NPR wrote: “Over the years, Springsteen has changed ‘Born to Run’ from a full-blown rock song to a haunting ballad,” as if that might be acceptable or praiseworthy behavior. Of course, that was written in 2000 about an artist who became successful in the 1970s…
- I think Billy said something on If All Goes Wrong about how he may end up where Neil Young (or any older artist) is. Consequence of Sound says that, right now, Neil is in a funny place.
