Find Me On:
It’s just not the same…
Read from the bottom up, it’s pretty depressing. Personally, they’ve just beaten me into submission at this point. It’ll come out if/when it comes out.
that guy in the middle-left looks like his head is photoshopped onto his body. i just can’t get myself to see it as a real person
That is one ugly-ass cover (and album title). It feels so airbrushed, digitally pieced together, faceless… Hopefully the music doesn’t fit with the art at all

Stereogum quoted him as saying:
“I’ve seen faces of blank terror when I walk by. Sometimes from seemingly strong, macho dudes — somehow my presence confuses and ultimately scares them. There is a strange power to it that I’ve only recently begun to understand and embrace. After many years trying to sort out exactly what they are scared of, most of the time converting the result into personal shame, there are now moments of monstrous pride.”
I take the video as showing the process of hate: receiving, internalizing, understanding, maybe even overcoming. He’s getting all this shit, and lashing out, and in turn getting more shit, until the end when he jumps off the building and is free from it all. The scary part is that this isn’t a Romeo & Juliet melodrama, this shit happens in real life too.
On a more enthusiastic note, that Perfume Genius video is fucking intense. I really love it.
Yeah, maybe I just spend too much time on the internet trying to avoid shitty memes and regurgitated in-jokes, but I’m not sure I did anything other than crack a smile a few times during any of those videos. At the risk of sounding like a too-hip dickhead, it’s nice, but I don’t think it’s really funny/new/exciting/necessary.
but for real, asking for down votes is just asking for down votes
I just ruined any chance I had of taking this even slightly seriously
