Ten Thousand Favorite Songs, v. 134

-the people who feel the most anxiety (me) are probably the people who shouldn't feel any, like the fear of getting hit is worse than getting hit maybe because it lasts longer?

--lookin for the water from a deeper well

---oh damn flip phone core at its peak

-----it became the rosetta stone for vaporwave.  

-----not on spotify because nothing is problems fucked us, we should have had a better avril.  we live in the darker avril timeline

Ten Thousand Favorite Songs, v. 133

-fernetty pot for the soul!  (Ben's unsuccessful and dangerous line of fernet-based soul-cleansing netty pots. The alcohol kills the brain bacteria!) i mean, the water is just gonna be somewhat tainted due to circumstance, and my unending joy at over serious bros mimicking depth, it has its own cavernous tragedies

--I'm not sure but I think Louis C.K. was the lead singer of Tonic

---btw I've gotten even worse at bowling.  like ~50 bad.

----how many dude-babes did they find to front these bands after Kurt?

-----i'll always have Doug's back because he helped me save the february men's encounter from ruin

Ten Thousand Favorite Songs, v. 132 and David S. Pumpkins

This paralyzed me with laughter

-you know that in islands across the pacific and indian oceans there's a bar with a local kid who knows how to play this and adele and don't stop believing on acoustic and everything is spelled wrong and mispronounced and fucking perfect

--I do not understand how the vocals were recorded for this.  how could he sing so softly and clearly.  it's not whispering, it's too well-defined for that.  the articulation is stunning.

---what if, and I know this is my stupidest (possibly offensive) take ever, but i think whenever you sense someone wants to know if a person in a story is white or black, you just called them 'oh yeah, he was a cool American.  well, I mean, his dad was cool, his mom was white.  but he identifies as cool."

----whenever a new song is recorded in studio, they should play this on the monitors and then listen to the playback.  if you truly believe your song belongs in this continuum, you can keep it, but you have to pass this shame-flame-walk

-----i'm not sure there is a state that seems more romantic in abstract but that I am more disinclined to visit, savannah aside.

Ten Thousand Favorite Songs, v. 131

tfw you find a new song you love on youtube

- i bought this album at the Circuit City (RIP) over off holgate and it wore it out

--maybe some days you fight, and when you can't fight with joy in your heart, you give up for that day, so you don't burn out, idk.

---definitely his worst fashion phase...oh ps I figured out the difference between what I hate in a cappella and what I enjoy.  I can't stand when they mimic instruments, cuz they are about 10% as good as they think they are at it.  I do like straight-choral arrangements.  who who who who the fuck enjoys a white boy beatboxing who who

----has portland gotten demonstrably cooler yet?

-----honestly i would probably need a lobotomy to be this chill.  not saying its stupid, just saying i need surgically severed anxiety neural pathways

Ten Thousand Favorite Songs, v. 130

-so sue me there is meaning in the prince shadow, he made enough cool to graciously allow all these lesser men.

--weirdness prior to internet-driven incentive to deviate from the mean

---i have so many questions

----dude probably got me into music more than anyone else

-----you can't give this shit to teenage romantics, it is uncut, it leads to long pauses in empty art classrooms, windows full of more light than should be allowed.
