people who are in their 20 or 30s complaining about ‘kids these days’ is super funny to me, like i saw someone complaining about how kids at some pool were playing marco polo but with ‘hashtag’ ‘yolo’ and if that’s not funny to you then what the hell sucked the joy out of your life

“In this film, some audiences will say that the title seems to be very cynical, because it is about two persons living together, and at the end, they are just separate. But to me, happy together can apply to two persons or apply to a person and his past, and I think sometimes when a person is at peace with himself and his past, I think it is the beginning of a relationship which can be happy, and also he can be more open to more possibilities in the future with other people.” Director Wong Kar Wai on the title of his film, Happy Together (1997)

This is very meaningful for me.

Time is a flat circle. It’s hard, and red, and made of plastic. You can throw it, and a dog might catch it. Frisbee. It’s a frisbee.

AAAARJKHGH this Japanese dude keeps releasing beat tapes — one every couple of months — and they’re so fucking good. Nobody works piano samples like this guy; he bends and stitches and heals them into new melodies, soft-voiced and strong. He treats his vocal samples like they’re friends so old he doesn’t need to look up to know it’s them. Every sound is given space to breathe and grow. Every beat is like a recapitulation and resuscitation of a world.

And this would all be great, except his new albums cost like $9 each time and because I have to buy them all, it’s kinda genuinely becoming a drain on my finances.

[plz go to his bandcamp so at least I’m not alone in this okay]

When I say “boys are dumb” what I really mean is “boys have been raised in a patriarchal society that forces them into an incorrect and problematic view of masculinity that not only forces them to strip away valuable virtues from themselves, like patience and gentleness, but also forces them them to view and treat women in unhealthy ways that devalues women as people and makes them into objects purely for a man’s benefit”

but it’s a lot faster to say “boys are dumb”

As a boy who is hopefully a little less dumb than he used to be, I endorse this 100%.

Bombadil - Angeline

Bombadil are truly one of the strangest bands I know. I always forget about them, but then sometimes they hit my mood just right.

In a disaffection economy, they’ve doubled down on pomp. In a niche whose currency is (apparent) affectlessness, they bring a university-theatre level of care and earnestness to their affectation. In this song, for instance, they’re so careful to build the rhyme structures around pronouncing “Angeline” the proper French way, and then all these fussy little variations — who does that?

It extends past the music itself. Their name is a Tolkien reference. Their website is a Squarespace (almost certainly brought to their attention by This American Life). Their whole vibe is so overwhelmingly white, so cartoonishly, exaggeratedly white — like, this is the band who plays at the weddings of Dave Chappelle’s white-man characters; we found ‘em. But then they just own it, own their incredible palpable uncoolness to such a degree that it maybe - just maybe - turns full circle on them, and makes them kinda compelling?

Or maybe I’m just that much of a dork.

Either way. Weird song.
