it’s almost impossible to fathom what would provoke an accomplished songwriter — an adult! — to launch an unprovoked attack on a fellow artist he had no prior beef with…and a group that had done absolutely nothing to hurt anyone else. Is he completely out of ideas? Is he desperate for attention? Is it a cynical scheme designed to stir the pot on social media?

Anyhow, I have no idea what Randy Newman’s fucking problem is. But I hear Mark Kozelek’s got a new song about the War On Drugs.

(fun fact : the original title of John Lennon’s “How Do You Sleep?” was “Paul McCartney, Suck My Cock”)
