    Bullmoose told me their copy is black and BSS's website is claiming only preorders (but not what preorders) will be clear vinyl.

    Cool thanks.

    Thank you for playing, and I would keep it up with you, but we both have respectable ratios to maintain.

    Sounds like EU are getting a indies clear version limited to 3k, and the coke bottle version is a US Arts & Craft exclusive limited to 500. I've also got fingers crossed for a VMP pressing!

    I'm not sure that's entirely accurate, but that album is worth buying again and again. I bought it in cassette and CD. Still need to cop on vinyl.

    I find questions like this important, so I wanted to address it.
    I would also like to note that I'm addressing this without bringing PWR BTTM into it in anyway. Please do not loop any part of my discussion into the PWR BTTM situation.

    Queer can be a confusing statement because of everything it includes. It's really become a "catch all" for everything considered a non-traditional sexual orientation AND/OR a non-traditional gender identity. Others have pointed this out as well, and it can be equally empowering and hateful based on it's usage.

    Now addressing your question in more depth:
    I think it's important to note that gender and sexual orientation are not the same. How a gender is identified can exist independently of your sexual orientation.
    Sexual orientation also expands beyond gay, straight, and bisexual. Gay, straight, and bisexual really assumes you are operating on the traditional 2 gender biological scale, which is not all encompassing.
    Immediately addressing your question; an individual that is a biological male, identifying as cisgender or gender neutral, can be considered "queer" purely based on the gender identity. This is specifically noted as queer without considering their sexual orientation. It is possible this for this individual to be "traditionally" straight, gay, or bisexual if you are only considering their biological gender.

    There is actually a significant body of research related to both sexual orientation, and gender biology and identity. One of the most memorable related works is related to "The 7 Sexes." I would highly suggest looking into the 7 Sexes if you would like to learn more. It is a book, but it may be easier to start with overviews of the concepts and summaries. I was introduced to the principles of the 7 Sexes in college, and it truly transformed the way I viewed gender, sexuality and people in general.

    I could go on this topic for hours, but I'll stop there. I strongly encourage everyone to explore the depth of human nature that exist well beyond the confines of men and women being straight or gay.

    I hope that someone finds that in some way helpful or interesting, and I apologize for digging up an old topic in this heated thread.

    I totally blamed The Stranger when he skipped town and moved to PDX. I felt like that was the end of an era in Seattle. Man I cannot WAIT for this new record.

    I'm pretty sure a couple have been accused...RZA even went to court, unless that's a urban myth. I love the wu but let's not pretend that rap artists can get away with crimes that other artists would be shunned for.

    One way to get this sucker up to 250 is another controversy. Here goes:

    (Disclaimer: the opinions stated below do not necessarily reflect the opinions of the author of this post or publisher and should be taken as parody or satire or the ramblings of a hungry man)

    A Seat at the Table is better than Lemonade.
    OK Computer is terrible.
    You can't dance to AnCo.
    Death Grips is the best Hip Hop group of all time.
    Wang Chung is the quintessential 80s group.
    Disco is not dead.
    Brantley Gilbert is the best Country right now.
    Uhh... Lil' Yachty's "Minnesota" put Minnesota on the map and should be its State song.
    Migos... more like please no.
    No Kanye, Beyonce's video was not the best of all time.
    Lil' Wayne is the best guitarist ever.
    Wayne Coyne is the best singer.
    And Kenny G is the best Saxophonist ever.
    Carly Rae Jepsen can't sing.
    Humanz is meh.

    Haha and I'm out... any of these help?

    I don't care about your disclaimer. This is absolutely true.

    Never heard Lemonade but I prefer Solange's voice.
