Honestly voting should be as easy as ordering a pizza. I'm modestly in favor of compulsory voting myself (or incentivized voting though there's less precedent for that) but I don't think it would ever get off the ground in the US. So these kinds of reforms are probably our best bet for now.

Gaiter gang! I think they're fine for outdoors when you're in low-density / non-sustained contact with others (like jogging around outdoors). And they are much better than nothing! 77% droplet reduction for a single layer gaiter vs. 81% for a two-layer mask! https://www.webmd.com/lung/news/20201011/neck-gaiters-may-protect-against-covid-19-spread

I like it just fine but at the same time I would also not stream it because I can't remember ever having the thought "you know what, its been too long since I heard Wonderwall"

Automatic voter registration, baby! 16 states are already doing it and not alllll of them are blue states. It's definitely something progressives should be pushing for across the map.

Exactly. The voting electorate is older, whiter, wealthier, and more educated than the electorate as a whole, and that's also whose interests are prioritized in Congress. When turnout is higher, the gap gets smaller, and the right does worse. This isn't just a US thing either, though the effect is especially pronounced here. That's why Michelle, Janelle, et al, call their movement "When We All Vote." As in, When We All Vote These Assholes Will Not Have a Chance in Hell.

Cooincidentally, I just ordered his self-titled on vinyl last night (I had actually ordered it some time a year or so ago but there was a shipping error and I just took a refund). I was trying to tick off some items on my buy list that had "spooky" covers for an October display.

I don't think Ascension sounds like Adz at all except in the superficial sense that they are both electronic albums. Adz is abrasive and oversaturated and packed with symphonic flourishes, while Ascension is all glistening surfaces and negative space. It's really the closest I could imagine Suf coming to Spotify-core. That said, the sound isn't really the issue to me so much as the songs, which just feel kind of limp by the lofty standards of the Sufjan canon.

I'll be surprised if beabadoobee can go truly mainstream popular as opposed to just moderately Spotify popular, but either way I like what she's doing. Also, "Sofia" was my favorite song from Clairo's album, so what a pleasant surprise to see that Tik Tok has now crowned it a hit.

Same. It's telling that some of the most iconic Van Halen songs are the Kinks cover or something like "Eruption" that just soloing. I'll admit I'm not well-versed in their back catalog, but the other big hits like "Hot for Teacher" and "Jump" always struck me as basically Kiss-level shlock. But if this was the imperfect vessel that brought Eddie's playing to our ears, then it was obviously worth it.

I was a casual Radiohead fan growing up and really just knew their popular songs like "Karma Police" and "There There" when it was on MTV2. Dug a little deeper when I had my first deep dive into alt-rock phase circa late junior year of high school (I remember having a few of their songs on a CD with stuff by the Cure, Pixies, Smashing Pumpkins, Smiths). I got very into In Rainbows while studying abroad in college because it was some of the only new music I was able to hear thanks to the online download thing. Never really dug into the back catalogue though. My first serious boyfriend was a Radiohead diehard which made me like them more when we were together and then a lot less after we broke up. But eventually I came back around and so honestly I was in my mid twenties when I actually listened to Kid A all the way through. And it was awesome. Though I'm still more of an IR/OKC guy.

I really agree with padfoot about picking a best, but in a similar way "Pyramid Song" might sneakily be my favorite. Or my favorite in the amniotic-space-ballad bracket anyway.

"Paranoid Android" is like a one-song best-of-Radiohead and so I'd say it has a strong case for being the quintessential Radiohead song. But I don't think it's their best. Though it is the one I most wanted to hear when I got to see them live, and sure enough it was an absolute show-stopper.

Dude, I'm usually 100% here for clowning Bon Iver and earnest indie pop-folk, but I can't be cynical about this. He's doing what he can. Wisconsin was decided by 0.7% in 2016. I don't think he's doing this because he think he'll swing the election, I think he's doing it because he's a human being with a beating heart and he wouldn't be able to live with himself if he didn't do *something*. Whatever happens next there will be plenty of time for guttersnakes like us to snipe from the comment section. JV isn't even preaching here, which would be the easy thing to do, he is trying to connect with some regular people on a human level at a time where we all feel completely fucking dehumanized and I just gotta respect that, even if I didn't make it through I,I even once.
