“I for one am petrified of the bear-wolf, because it seems like such an apt name for a horrible band. I mean, how many more bear-wolf band names can we possibly be expected to endure? Enough is enough! Grizzly Bear sucks. Minus The Bear sucks. Panda Bear sucks. Bear vs. Shark sucks. AIDS Wolf might be the stupidest band name ever. Wolfmother sucks. Wolf Parade sucks. Sea Wolf sucks. Guitar Wolf sucks. Now we’re gonna get this stupid Bear-Wolf band and they’re going to suck harder than all those other nonsense acts combined.”
It’s funny that this guy most likely doesn’t know the implications of what he is saying when he uses the words ‘suck’ ‘grizzly’ and ‘bear’ in the one sentence. Oh, and he’s talking about this.
Maybe, it’s just me, but doesn’t this seem a little raunchy for a music video?
I still like it though… The video that is… I like New Order but ironically I like old New Order better than new New Order.
New Order – Krafty
I don’t know what it is about them, they’re just so mightily desirable. I think its probably the way they speak and their winning smiles..

By the way, is it OK to objectify black men? Am I being racist if i objectify a black man? Am I being racist calling them ‘black’ rather than ‘coloured’ or ‘Negro’ or ‘of African decendency’ or that word, that-if-you-say-it-around-a-black-person-you-should-most-definitely-get-shot? Am I being racist not including a Caucasian, Asian or otherwise? Am I being sexist and racist not including a black woman? Am I paranoid? Like hell I am.
Oh my! That is bad. When I thought Mrs. Mills’ Let’s Have Another Party was bad…
Nothing could have prepared me for this one, not even a light-hearted discussion over the giving and/or receiving of human to bear fellatio could have made me ready to witness a naked man holding a pig in the mud. I mean, as if it wasn’t enough to take in, I am now led to believe that this, obscenity, represents and provides preface to, MUSIC of all blessed things …Wait, there’s more!:
Four, elderly men requesting to “touch Him” (a bit far don’t you think?);
Oh wait, never mind that comment on the ‘crossing of the line’, this proves that there is no line to cross, or at least, the album is so far over it that it knowest not where the line was initially and manages to transcend all lines ever created and offend everyone. “NEXT!”;
*distainfully* “Herbie Mann, are you trying to be, um …Sexy?”
My, oh my! Maybe if you weren’t, y’know, holding a SHOTGUN-like-flute and covered in hair thats quantity is only attractive to a BEAR, you’d be getting there. Also, refrain from instructing the person you are wooing to “Push, Push” and maybe keep your face well lit so as to avoid confusion with a SERIAL KILLER.
