Dylan Thomas is fine but it’s no Me & My Dog. Or Salt in the Wound. Or Stay Down. Or Bite the Hand. If you think people hype boygenius because of their band name you really need to listen to the EP again.
Successful may be too strong a word, but we do have a new President, and he is the one who won the election. Also he doesn’t seem to want us all to die, or if he does he’s at least keeping it to himself, so that’s a nice change of tone as well.
Oh good you and YBB both keeping files now
I don’t know when we talked about Harrisburg or why you remember that ( lol?) but that’s still a hard pass. And I could give a fuck about a Whole Foods or a Sweetgreen, to be clear, but I did small town America as a kid and it’s just not my vibe. I’m not running for office so I don’t have to pretend I love this place from sea to shining sea. Though if you wanted to read me more accurately you could say that pretty much anywhere that isn’t at least D+5 PVI is gonna be a no from me.
Get it Pheebs! I would love to see her bring the boygenius gals along for the show
The fact that we never got a proper follow up to Excavation is a travesty. He did great things on Vulnicura though. And then there's this mind-melter... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ape4iWCtnY0&ab_channel=PerH
Houston is too big to generalize about. Some of it is great, some of it sucks. I like San Antonio personally. And I do like Austin, all things considered. Though I also like San Francisco.
There is a LOT of competition though. And you guys can just downvote my shitposts, it's really okay, this is a lot of feedback for a post I barely thought about it and its kind of stressing me out!
They definitely think this about themselves, and in my head my post was supposed to be expressing some sarcasm about the discrepancy between that self-conception and the reality where they seem to be making as many bad decisions with COVID as the rest of the state (like imagine I'm really leaning on *suppooooosed to be*), but clearly it just game across as straight Austin boosterism, so IDK, shut it down. There was no sophisticated humor to my jokes about Florida earlier this week, I was just making fun of Florida, as I believe is every American's right.
Oh god, Art Angels without Butterfly is maybe worse than Art Angels without Realiti (better single, but less essential to the album than the euphoric closer). I always like the demo version a bit better, the LP version is slightly over embellished, granted in a way that suits the album aesthetic, but taking Realiti out just leaves the second half banger marathon missing a good sing-along chorus until you get to Butterfly.
Ok but I'm actually from Texas (uncivilized division) so I'm allowed to make fun here.
Art Angels is on the very very very shortlist for my fav album of the 2010s but I don't have the vinyl because it doesn't have Realiti. IDK why they couldn't do a double LP, if any song is worth it its the literal best Grimes song...
Why is Stubb's still having shows? Austin is supposed to be the civilized part of Texas
My husband had this CD in his car for what felt like *years* when it came out, I don't think I've listened to it since he took it out of rotation because that + the general ubiquity of this album was enough Adele for several lifetimes. This was also pretty early in our relationship so it was kind of awkward to be driving around listening to this album that is mostly devastating breakup songs, but hey, we made it. Off the top of my head I can't remember what "Take It All" or "I'll Be Waiting" sound like but everything else is like permanently engraved in my psyche, for better or for worse.
"Laser Beam" is so intimate and beautiful that I sometimes catch myself holding my breath while I'm listening to it.
I think Zendaya is great in Euphoria, but I had to stop watching after a few episodes. It went so far beyond "real" or even dark/edgy and just became miserable. Do teens actually watch and relate to this show? Or is it just supposed to scare the shit out of their parents?
Right wing media sycophants imputing deep intentionality to Trump's shenanigans is maybe what I'll miss the most in that spirit, please revisit this classic of the form: https://amgreatness.com/2017/06/03/genius-power-covfefe/
On the spectrum of reasons to endorse Trump, "I don't want to go to jail" is a pretty good one. Certainly easier to follow than whatever Kanye was on about.
I took Pitchfork's announcement as less "this is definitely happening in the fall" and more "there's no way its happening in the summer"
