    For shitz and gigz, its catchy but not in a good way, I was really trying to find a redeeming moment of the song but it never happened.

    Seeing someone post this from their phone is like a Facebook suicide note.

    Step back from the ledge! We’ll get you through this!

    That fuckin “update” is comical for all the wrong reasons. I lost my shit at PNus riding his bike, I knew you guys wouldn’t let me down on that. And they never actually said what dialing 311 does, right? Like how was this something they thought should go up on their album blog? That’s an IG story at best.

    Whatever, as I said when the Mosaic campaign was getting out of hand, the updates don’t really matter in the end. There is an album and we will be hearing it before the end of next month.

    But still, how hard is it to actually put out some relevant shit? They could have done like one update per week where someone or several people in the band talk about each song 1 at a time. Boom, that’s 13 updates right there. So many things they can do, but instead we get nonsense videos about what they THINK happens when you dial 311 and a promise of Tim photos from the Hive? These better fuckin be dick pics.

    I hear ya, man. I definitely don't think it'd be productive for them to ever read much of any of this stuff. People just tend not to take criticism well, unless it's very carefully worded. For instance, Tomato Salad and Skiing311 didn't take my "those were terrible analogies" comment very well, which in hindsight is probably at least in part because I started it out by saying that instead of other ways I could've written that. And that wasn't even a big deal, it was just lighthearted jokes - not songs people worked on and were excited for.

    Even TiCal's tweet isn't perfect, as much as we all are giving him the benefit of the doubt. I could read that to be a rhetorical question, and I bet P-Nut did. I'm not defending blocking TiCal over that, but it was the day after two new songs dropped and he probably wasn't in a place to consider the question or hear a criticism like that. The suggestion there is that Good Feeling is pop that may disappoint and make them lose longtime fans - without any couching or tone of voice to go off of, I could see why he didn't react well to it. And that was tame compared to what I'd imagine at least some people here would say if Nick or P-Nut were convinced to join and take some criticism from nerds on an internet forum in 2019 lol.

    But they wouldn't do that. And maybe you're right that they aren't particularly interested in any criticism (at least on Good Feeling). They may be really happy with it and not care if some longtime fans wretch when it comes on. P-Nut even suggested they knew it'd be polarizing in that interview (of course they knew that). Might be better to just say "Man, I love" Too Late, One and the Same, Days of '88, etc etc and hope they get the message that fans are reacting especially well to..........good songs. But even then, they're not gonna tune out the tons of people who liked Good Feeling and posted videos of their stupid, ugly, and presumably stinky children enjoying it. So I dunno.

    I hate all the attention Blink is getting right now because of touring with Wayne and doing arenas. Meanwhile in Atlanta, (that once was said to have one of the bigger 311 followings) still has half the tickets at Chastain Park still up for grabs. Killing me.

    If 311 did want to "Go Pop " they are failing . P-Nut wishes he wrote " Get Lucky" - which appeals to kids and adults GF is strictly for 3-5 year olds

    So if "get lucky" is a " pop" song and is disco funky style , and then RHCP release a funky disco song that gets big -- is that NOT considered a " pop" song ?
