Find Me On:
After that headline, I was a little disappointed to see that Hopscotch is a festival.
Ugh, those people are the worst, and ugh, my sympathies to the OG poster.
It wasn’t quite that bad, but I was getting that at a show in New York last month that I had been eagerly, eagerly awaiting, and I don’t live in New York, everything just happened to align so I could be there. I almost wanted to be like “Jerks, I live 4 hours away from here and don’t know if I’ll get to see this act again. STFU!”
I mean, considering that you *are* the Raptor Jesus, I’m willing to give credence to your assertions. That explains why your and Richard D. James’ initials are so close, after all…
I saw that after I read this post, but thanks for pointing that out! I apparently should be reading this feature.
Oh man, I didn’t know Kelly was writing for this ‘gum now! I have been missing out, apparently.
ALSO, that pamphlet on disappearing reads a lot like this weird pamphlet on meditation that someone outside the subway handed to me. I just figured they were part of a local yoga cult. That’s a thing, right?
Anthropomorphic Microsoft paperclip? It’s clippy, bitch.
I would like to throw Kitty’s “m0rgan stop =͟͟͞͞ʕ•̫͡•ʔ =͟͟͞͞ʕ•̫͡•ʔ =͟͟͞͞ʕ•̫͡•ʔ =͟͟͞͞ʕ•̫͡•ʔ =͟͟͞͞ʕ•̫͡•ʔ” in there. It’s got such a nice, breezy bounce, I know I will be foisting that upon my Fire Island housemates this summer.
-Robyn & Royksopp – “Do It Again”
-tUnE-yArDs – “Water Fountain”
-Iggy Azalea & Charlie XCX – “Fancy”
-Giorgio Moroder – “Giorgio’s Theme”
I’m also tempted to say Austra’s “Habitat,” though that seems more specific to balmy late nights…
“Work Work” is great, and you’re right, I think that could be good summer jam material…
Huh, Tom knows things about comic books! Who knew?
Also, it’s not *like* that was taken from Wikipedia… seriously, check out the entry: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nirvana_(band)
Re: her fans and the music she makes now, in both _’s and charliepanayi’s comments: I think that’s a bit harsh. I mean, her music definitely doesn’t have the same spark (sorry) that it used to, but I chalk that up to the fact that she seems pretty happy now, and not to mention that’s it pretty difficult to keep your music fresh and interesting over such an extended (and prolific) period of time. I hate to sound like an artist needs to suffer in order to make interesting music, but that inner turmoil is what charged her music throughout the 90s, even for the songs where she wasn’t trying to expand her sonic palette (which is something she did push more and more as the millennium approached). I think that after she spent the better part of 10 years working out her demons in the recording studio and on stage, and settled down with a family, she felt the need to go more conceptual, to try and keep her work interesting. Granted, I don’t think it entirely worked… maybe it would have been more interesting had she not settled on a more pop-focused sound after Scarlet’s Walk… but I don’t think I can say she hasn’t tried.
(And also, yes, I used to be a huge Tori fan. Not quite a die hard who found her infallible, but she was one of my two favorite artists up until the middle of her concept album phase, where my interest dropped precipitously.)
