Hi. Welcome to Stereogum. You'll be seeing my smiling face ALOT. I like to post. All the time. About things I know little or nothing about. And then you get to read that shit. You can choose not to read it. And that's probably for the best. But rest assured that will not change the ludicrous amount of things I have to say on a vast multitude of topics. I'm glad we had this time together.

I know what you are saying here. But you have to remember up here city names like Echo Park don't mean anything. We think like this "you love south of the Grapevine and north of San Diego? You live in LA". Only a slight exaggeration of how we think up here

I think the point might getting missed here......spoon, arcade fire, vampire weekend, Radiohead, the national etc are headlining monster acts. And well deserved. Julianna Barwick is still basically an unknown

You know how smoking laws and taxes keep getting more and more extreme and part of you knows that the government has moved past the point of any kind of fairness towards the tobacco companies and you worry about the slippery slope this could lead to insofar as court cases down the road for other things but don't give a fuck cuz fuck the tobacco companies? That's how I feel here. I worry so much about precedents sent by these kinds of cases and also whether or not white hinterland is actually be stolen from. But ultimately FUCK these assholes and they can pay her. Cuz there's a little now legal statute that applies here. It's in the case of FUCK THESE ASSHOLES va I kinda think in might be a losing case. Maybe it's just me

I guess I shouldn't talk too much shit. My youngest ended up with a fairly common name but literally until the drive to the hospital she was gonna be First Name - Jackie / Middle Name - Robinson........My now ex got cold feet at the last second. To this day my kid bitches at me for not sticking to my guns. We have a large 60" x 60" amazing painting of Jackie sliding under Yogi (for the record Jackie was out on that play) dead center of our living room.

Was at a birthday party for small children last weekend. One couple had two young boys. Axl and Maverick. Everybody survived cuz I was torn on whether I should take the young boys out to save them the pain of growing up with those names. Or to take the parents down on GP.

Brace yourselves....I'm bout to drone on. 8.2 8.5 8.5 8.2. Those are the scores on another website for the artist in question. With the huge exception of Kanye I do not think there is another artist over the past 10 years with a minimum of 4 full lengths under their belt that averages 8.35 over there. I am forever in Silas Weggs debt for turning me onto Julianna Barwick. Her albums are all basically the same. It's all just pianos, strings, massive washes of synth and her voice looped over and over again. Rarely into words. Almost always just breathless soundscapes. It's a truly unique and mesmerizing musical vision. I am quite sure at first blush it might come off as very boring. But the longer I listen to it the more it seeps into me. A co-worker walked by and called it "elevator music" I usually don't give a fuck what people think about the music I listen to but something about that enraged me. Again, I love all 4 of her albums. If you want to put your toe in try Nepenthe first. At the very least check out the song "One Half". She is quickly climbing up the ladder towards the very top of my favorite artists list. It's music to enrich your soul and calm your worried mind. This has been "Bloc waxes on and on and on"
