It's probably just me, but I look at that picture and I want to punch that stooge in the nose real hard, then bring 250 lbs of beer muscle down on that unshoe'd foot of his.

Yeah, it's probably just me.

I don't think anyone has ever called Bill Callahan a "stooge" before, but I suppose there are new idiots born every day.

No coverage of Bjork shows. Unreal...

Personally, I've heard Bill Callahan called "clown shit" before. You'll hear anything if you live long enough, so chin up 2:08, when you graduate and get to college you're mind will be filled with oh-so-many ideas and things.

^ They are probably waiting till the entire run ends but what is your problem loser. Does your enjoyment of the show suffer because there is no write up here. Are you steaming mad and sad that you don't have a thread where you can tell everyone how she "killed" it and it was the best show of your life. Get a fucking life. Oh and Bjork sucks

Posted by Anonymous | February 8, 2012 2:18 PM

I agree ... Bill Callahan is a loser.

"250 lbs of beer muscle"

Seems there may be a countless amount of reasons for that built-up aggression.

Take a tip and stop drinking, get over your daddy issues and change your diet. There's hope for everyone . . .

In all my years of both playing and enjoying music, for the life of me I cannot figure out what the fascination some have with Bill Callahan is all about. Seriously, do you have to be a retard to get it? Did you have to huff a lot of gasoline or airplane glue in shop class? Did you have to be a sufferer of TBI? What is it?

Hey 218, maybe you should go listen to St. Vincent!

Anyone who says Bjork sucks in MY OPINION has never seen her live.

2:26 - ah, P-Funk shits on Anthrax, baby

Posted by Anonymous | February 8, 2012 2:28 PM

Hey 2:26, I am here to tell you that YOUR OPINION on Bjork is both incorrect and worthless.I have seen her live and it still sucked. Now go cry that there is no coverage on the shows yet and you can't voice your idiotic opinions there.

Posted by Anonymous | February 8, 2012 2:33 PM

"218 listens to what Pitchfork tells him to listen to. Poor little soul from Ohio..."

You fucking dummy, people who listen to what Pitchfork tells them to listen to would obviously then be listening to Bjork. They worship her and cream over every move she makes.

Posted by Anonymous | February 8, 2012 2:37 PM

I'm not 2:26, and I don't have an opinion about Bjork one way or the other, but I feel compelled to let you know, 2:33, that from now on you can keep YOUR opinions to yourself

It's probably complete garbage but keep on hating bro!

Posted by Anonymous | February 8, 2012 2:43 PM

I would guess that since Bjork is not allowing photographers at any of her shows, that BV can't really 'cover' them. If you want reviews, go to the 4Um at her website, where everyone will gush uncontrollably, but at least you get stuff like setlists and crappy phone shots.

Posted by Anonymous | February 8, 2012 2:58 PM

Personally I think it is hilarious that the dumb Bjork lovers cannot find a thread for her shows, to spew about their dream girl, so they are blasting on this one.

Also, honestly if you think Bjork is not a Pitchfork mainstay then you have obviously never looked at that site.

nice troll. not really, since it's neither subtle / artful or funny. it actually provokes no other feeling but pity for your feckless life and the sadness and emptiness you feel.

time to guy find a new big black bear with a good record collection to juke your ass when mom's out of town.

Callahan was a boring mess. Why did I waste hours of my life on that? I'm the dope for listening to all you Callahan toadies on here. Fuck ya!

Posted by Anonymous | February 9, 2012 7:54 AM

Wow...I have met BIll and he is a really nice guy.

Also, if you think he isn't good, you obviously have not listened to his catalog.

Posted by Anonymous | February 9, 2012 8:05 AM

That's great, 8:05. The 7:54 poster reports that he didn't like the show, and you come back with a statement about Callahan that doesn't relate to his music or performance in any way, followed by an blame shifting insult on how the poster needs to do more homework before seeing a show. Really know how to "sell" your guy, 8:05 - nice job. Now, go screw.

"Callahan was a boring mess"

You were so not at that show and if you were then I would love to meet you and punch the idiot out of you. Callahan was the furthest thing from boring last night. Great Great Beautiful show.

Posted by Anonymous | February 9, 2012 10:43 AM

I'm sure Callahan wasn't as good as Pres Hall Jazz Band at Carnegie Hall last month, though you may get some conjecture from The Edge about that...

Yeah i smell that also but it is overshadowed by the stench of a Preservation Hall Jazz fan who still cannot get over his show not being the best show of that particular night. Quite pathetic actually still trying out there.
