No Han's probably very dead. And since he showed zero aptitude with the force he's almost certainly not coming back as a force ghost. Now if the director of the new movies decides to play fast and loose with established canon rules which Lucas seemed perfectly fine with doing when he changed the nature of the force from metaphysical to biological with the introduction of midichlorians for no other narrative reason than to emphasize how powerful Anakin was then I see no reason for these new writers to come up with an excuse to bring Han...*looks around realizing he's speaking to an empty room*...oh

I can't be the only one getting flashbacks to the MySpace emo wave. It's a lot of the same components in not just the influences and themes but also who's making it (mostly disaffected suburban white boys), who's listening to it (almost certainly the primary audience consists of teenage girls), and the free easy to use distribution system. There's just more emphasis on fashionable nihilism.

The latter half of "Lullabye". I think the drums on that song helped open me up to doom metal to be honest

I keep coming back to Spooky Action At A Distance. It's a perfectly paced, gorgeous album, "Jet Out of The Tundra" is obvious but "Strangers", "Monoliths", "Black Buzz"... you can't find a weak track. Halcyon Digest is still a top 5 favorite album of the decade for me, but Spooky Action is right up there, along with Parallax which is aging beautifully. Fading Frontier didn't really move me, I liked it but didn't adore it, so I'm with you: I would be ecstatic for new AS or LO music

Drake seems to think about his persona in the larger monoculture, and picks his pop features to fit in with that. Kendrick doesn't seem to think about that, he's more along the lines of "whatever lets me get paid so I can get back to the greatest rapper alive thing". Or he does care and just has terrible taste. I prefer the former explanation

My favorite minor "oh shit its Ray Wise" role is when he plays one of Red Forman's lackeys in Robocop. Second favorite is the "Wishes" video because that's what I imagine half time at Twin Peaks High looks like.

My girlfriend and I are waiting for the new season to finish so we can get the free showtime trial and binge it in a week. I'm already preparing myself mentally.

That Portugal song is on modern rock radio constantly, which I guess is indicative of something. I have no idea what that means anymore

"STEREOGUM: Have you ever heard of the Chainsmokers? MCDONALD: I’ve heard the name. There’s no real melodic change, it’s just everything underneath comes and goes. The same chord progression." Put this on their fucking tombstones

Yeah but there's a difference between acknowledging their importance, which I don't think anyone is arguing against, and critical reassessment of the music's quality.

I feel like we should be able to express grief for the loss of a musician without feeling the need to immediately canonize their music.
