I don't even like talking about our ex-drummer, because it just uses up this space that we could be talking bout this cool shit we're doing with Sean Lennon and My Morning Jacket and Miley, and I don't want any of that tainted.

It's like the end of an article by The Onion.

the cocaine is just oozing out of that interview.

I used to be a fan when people my age where having their moment with this band between ages 18-22 over a decade now but watching wayne descend into this older, pathetic, drug-addled moron - living a mid-life crisis like very few ever witnessed - has been a pretty sad sight. that rolling stone interview is with a 53 year old man.

his lack of self-awareness is legitimately impressive for a person who's been a public figure as long as he has

only someone who is addled believes that he's making the situation any better giving that interview. it's just a trainwreck.

I do a lot of stuff, and I don't always ask everybody if it's politically correct.

I was wondering if it was old age or drugs making him ramble and coke makes a lot more sense for him.

that isn't a problem

will always be ready to back this flaming lips and love blasting 'mountainside' and fucking around with my guitar
the sense of glee from that stuff is so much more, I dunno, freedom-inspiring/cathartic than the rolling stageshow animal suit "love is all and overpowering.. and this attitude is how I've been justifying my pathetic manchild behaviour" vibe

or this flaming lips

(wayne might've been a creepazoid back then too I dunno, but it was less sad then if he was)

getting this in on pg 1 so sorry if someone else already had this shocking opinion but the dog photo got a laugh out of me

anyway yeah these dudes blow, a few of their records are ok, even with the earlier stuff the idea of them as a balls out psych punk band is a lot cooler than the boring ass tunes

90210 era alternative nation stuff is totally solid but if it changed your life i dunno what to tell you

I don't love them or anything, but I think you're selling them short. But we all have opinions.

haha, don't worry no one else thought it was funny! didn't you have a confederate flag in your house so people would just have to "deal with it" or something? i guess the dog in the headdress is in a similar vein (so shocking!). you and W. Coyne could probably have a great conversation about PC gone mad

i'll be honest, the devolution of this band is so sad for me. i was a huge flips fan for many years - went to dozens of their concerts and really immersed myself in their world. i would say just after embryonic they just became far too silly for me to get behind them anymore. like, i think some of the projects are sort of cool, but then they put out their first recordings inside of a frog that smells like piss or will embed their music in a white chocolate brain or whatever. i used to really get off on their brand of psychedelia, but this brand of entirely contrived bullshit is so upsetting. following wayne on the various social media sites is so exhausting - oooohhh you dripped paint all over some passed out chick in your living room...woooowww you put a smokebomb in the mouth of a dead cat you found on the streets of OKC.

i will say, however, that i listened to the soft bulletin earlier this week, after not having done so in a handful of years and it's still remarkable. easily one of my all time favorite albums.

remember when Wayne Coyne started a rumor that Steven Drozd was suicidal and on drugs again to build hype for Flaming Lips' "dark, bleak" new album?

Pitchfork: Wayne's recently mentioned in interviews that you were struggling with drug addiction throughout the recording process for The Terror.
SD: Some of that was greatly exaggerated, which was a bummer. I don’t care if people think I’m a junkie or a loser, but I’ve got a wife and three kids, so take that stuff more personally than I would have ten or twenty years ago. There’s some truth to it, though. I had what we would call a relapse, so I was struggling. We were up there working on stuff, and I’d go off to my own separate studio and just try to get through the day. But Wayne loves a gimmick, so he jumped on that stuff and said something about me being suicidal. I was never suicidal. There were a couple of days where I was struggling with what how I was going to get out of this situation, which shaped the way that the music I was making sounded. From there on, we wanted to shape the whole record in this realm of that mood.
