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.

I just ruined any chance I had of taking this even slightly seriously
It kinda sounds like the beginning of a bad children’s book:
God is everywhere, from here to there.
He made everything, including your hair!
He sees all of the ground, the sea, and the air,
because God is everywhere, from here to there!
These two songs were played repeatedly while I was getting too drunk at 2pm on memorial day:
Iggy Azalea – Fancy
Rick Ross – The Devil Is A Lie
I’m partial to Gimme Fiction as their best, but I have an equally stubborn friend who swears by Ga Ga Ga Ga Ga. Or, as Britt Daniel himself said, “anything other than Telephono”.
(I also like Telephono, but it’s definitely not the Spoon we’re used to.)
it’s one of those ones where you go ‘ohhhhhhh fuckkk’ and then get annoyed with yourself for it
