"Rock 'n roll bands had their day, but they didn't really succeed in blowing up--they weren't as revolutionary as they purported. Kanye West hasn't really done anything worthwhile--except maybe musically, I haven't heard him. But he hasn't overthrown the government." -Ian Svenonius

I thought it was pretty boring, like some folks I can only think of the org/event TBTN. I doubt that'll be a problem for most people but it could unintentionally raise awareness for the org if the press makes a big deal out of it which is kinda cool.

Not super stoked on the ongoing white savior freeing the brown people theme this show has going. tens of thousands of dusty black people calling the whitest person of all time mother for well over a minute? No thanks!!!

I will watch Rush ten times because Daniel Bruhl is my teen years crush (i know, like who am i?) and I loved Thor (I KNOW).

Holy Shit are they just touring for like over 4 months straight? I don't know how people do it. Especially since their shows are like intense, high energy.

Everyone knows what the fucking harlem shake is, people are being willfully ignorant so that they can be outraged about "white people" P.Diddy and Lil Bow Wow did the harlem shake well through the early 2000s and they were hardly underground hip hop artists, everyone has seen their videos. of the generation of folks making the harlem shake videos, black or white, most heard of it through pop stars. this meme has nothing to with paying homage to the harlem shake. GOD PEOPLE ARE SO ANNOYING. I hate when people don't understand the internet, I also hate when "filmmakers" do completely unethical, antagonizing, sensationalist viral-video trash pieces. Like you're doing way more damage than good. Also I suppose it's possibly of relevance that I am black.

Thomas also looks so gnarly this season, just like shiny wax. At least in the first two seasons he was decently attractive, now he has ZERO redeeming qualities. He also has the worst tastes in men.

it's a Day of The Dead thing. they'e like little decorated skulls that people can eat because they're actually candy. but also there is a culture of getting them as tattoos and they're all rockabilly'd out. like pretty dead rockabilly girls and such.
