If it finally comes out today or tomorrow I'm going to FEEL so many things. Also probably be dead. But stylishly.

I'm not necessarily disagreeing, but I feel like so many recent albums have had this "this album doesn't have any hits or songs that hook me immediately" "that's entirely what's great about it!" dichotomy happen. I wonder why that is.

August 22, 2016 on Premature Evaluation: Frank Ocean Blonde
Feels close to 2.76:1, which is achievable with a certain kind of 70mm/lens called Ultra Panavision 70. It's what was used for The Hateful Eight. http://vashivisuals.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/12/Screenshot-2015-12-29-12.27.25.png Rogue One is apparently using the same Ultra Panavision lens to shoot digitally, so I wonder what the end result of that will be.

[does not hit button; chair does not turn around; Shelton returns home, dejected and embarrassed, as everyone who ever loved him begins to fade away and leave him alone, standing in an empty kitchen where the water drips again and again until he rips it out in anger.]

They fucked up iMovie at one point, too. Seriously, right around the time Apple first went to Intel chips, their software was fantastic. They had been iterating on it and actually improving it for years. After that, though, they really started to sly backwards and "simplify" (ie, remove features unless you paid to upgrade).

Yeah, I think it's more a post-Louie, semi-autobiographical kind of show.

I loved their first album. A secret little gem I wouldn't have known about without Stereogum. Their live show was even better, though, and this definitely does a good job capturing the energy from it. Excited!

I usually try to get a few photos for posterity and send a few snaps to friends (especially if it's someone I know who bought me the ticket or wanted to go but couldn't). I usually do this during one or two songs. Of course, Radiohead playing "Let Down" brought my phone back out. And the ones with their backs to the stage--while not something I'd do--get enjoyment out of taking a selfie video with the artist in the frame as well (probably for a snap or something). I think cell phone use can get annoying, for sure, but it's honestly way down on my list of annoyances at concerts. I've dealt with too many drunk, idiotic people just looking to start shit or, like, drunkenly mosh at Beach House to get riled up about phone usage. If they enjoy it and it's not directly making my life worse/putting me in harm's way, it's fine.

There's a reason ACL is held later in the year, though. And as someone who has spent half his life in both Texas and NYC, the latter gets way fucking hotter at seemingly lower temps than people living in the latter think. The heat island effect is also a real, real bitch.

Warped Tour can survive because where the hell are a large number of those bands going to play/get booked?

It's weird how I know this is a stoner frat album and everything, but when I was in high school from 03 to 07, this album was exclusively the treasure of all the asshole dudes at the school who did nothing but shit on everyone around them all the time. Like I remember being at a party in high school and some dude wanting to fight me because I mentioned I thought "The Wrong Way" was a pretty gross song after he brought it up, and even just the idea of insulting Sublime made him flip the fuck out. Probably forever ruined them for me.

But then you sort of lose the whole "seeing an act live" or "experiencing music with a crowd," which I feel are largely the whole point of it for most people. Otherwise, you've just got a good YouTube playlist going.

July 29, 2016 on Countdown To Extinction: An Update From The Front Lines Of The Festival Wars
God I fucking love these columns. The cost of festivals just isn't really outweighed by the enjoyment for me anymore, at least here in the States. I'm know there's all sorts of factors that go into the pricing for them, but it seems increasingly insane to me. Panorama, for instance, was $369 for a 3 day pass in the middle of fucking July. Meanwhile, you can get a 3 day pass for something like Primavera Sound for over $100 cheaper (and even more if you bought them early; I think they started at like 150 euro or so). Is it really just that much expensive to run one of these things over here?

If there is something comforting - religious, if you want - about paranoia, there is still also anti-paranoia, where nothing is connected to anything, a condition not many of us can bear for long.
