Vivian Girls has a new drummer.

So Vivian Girls has a new drummer. The link is to a Brooklyn Vegan post and, you're never going to believe this, but the comments thread is full of hate and fat jokes. I try not to read too many comments anywhere, but when I do get sucked in over at BV, I'm always impressed by how consistent the tone is. If I'm there, it's usually because I'm reading up on a female artist. But I should probably do it anytime I start wondering if maybe we've all moved beyond the point of needing publications like Bust to cover pop culture like white on rice. We haven't.

...And they say feminism is no longer necessary. Reminds me of same kind of cosmetic criticism the press and individuals were giving Elena Kagan.
