There’s an article over at Pitchfork about the new Dead tribute album that the guys from The National (which is apparently a band) put together. Many musicians are asked about the Dead; they all respond by talking about themselves. (In their defense: if they weren’t talking about themselves, how else would you know they were in show biz?) The article also contains all of the following words or phrases, which are all mandated by Pitchfork editorial policy to appear in articles:

  • Elegiac.
  • Brooding.
  • John Cale.
  • “…tapes were the first internet…”
  • Church studio.
  • Bon Iyer.
  • “…splitting his time between the Catskills and Paris.”
  • “…dominant cultural mode of appropriation.”
  • “It was an appropriation of the appropriation.”
