LA Weekly writer disses Deerhunter in print, Deerhunter main man Bradford Cox sends along defensive e-mail, fighting and LOLing and cut-and-pasting and a sorta-funny joke utilizing Linus from Peanuts ensue. This is one of those arguments where you don’t “take sides” as much as you “regret the invention of the Internet.” [The Passion Of The Weiss]

    I gotta say that Weiss comes off looking defensive. Brandon’s initial email was hilarious.

    this whole thing is pretty tame. I like the “Bill & ted” reference though.

    can this guy maybe take a hack at TV on the Radio next?

    My irritation with all things Deerhunter leaves me no choice but to take sides.

    Bradford Cox stole my basketball.

    I haven’t read the exchange, but Bradford Cox is a genius. I won’t be convinced otherwise.

    I was more excited when I thought this was about someone taking Deerhoof down a peg, I haven’t heard this band at all. Pretty stupid on all sides, though.

    Weiss is a genius, man! Have you ever read Passion of the Weiss’s conversation between Young Jeezy and his therapist?

    Jeff Weiss seems like a douchey, humorless creep (writes for VVM, must go with the territory) and the Deerhunter guy seems pretty funny.
