  1. Not related to Lloyd Cole, but re: the shifting music income model I found this NYT piece illuminating: https://www.nytimes.com/2020/11/10/arts/music/hyperpop-spotify.html TL;DR A lot of burgeoning hyperpop artists are destitute teenagers and Spotify's inclusion of their home-produced music on the very influential Hyperpop Playlist represents an unbelievable windfall for them. When their music falls off the top of the playlist they scramble to do whatever they can to stay relevant and keep the tap open.
  2. I listen to a lot of klezmer music, would you classify that as ghetto type?
  3. I read it for the first time a few months ago, and I found it very similar to you. It was really well-paced, I felt propelled from one plotline to the next, my unhappiness at leaving one storyline outweighed always a little by excitement to revisit another. It's really a great story, laid out well. The discussions about reading order and canon are impenetrable and detract from the experience somewhat, but what can you do? I highlighted the above because I think the sort of Arab fetishism the writing about the Fremen exhibits did not age the same way the rest of the book did. Obviously
  4. The song "Not" by Big Thief is a classic earworm with a tremendous delivery. It's on a later album, Two Hands, if you've not yet branched out. Great album, but you have to fight that impulse.
  5. I’m so American at first glance I thought the guy in the gray coat was holding a gun. Obviously that would be awesome.

    Get your game on!

    I don’t regret preordering, and I had an excellent experience on a PC running a 9700k and a 2080. Minimal bugs and a generally clean, satisfying experience. I’m glad they put it out when they did, and I believe they did not expect the backlash they got. That said, I’m not sure it’s a “91” game even if everything works perfectly. I’ll revisit in 6 months or so once the DLCs drop, but outside of the core story and the better side quests it’s not a revelation. It looks fantastic, much better than anything I’ve ever played, but I think the artistic reach exceeded the gameplay grasp. A lot of s
  7. That system looks pleasant, but I cannot for the life of me figure out why. It appears to be a Crowley turntable or similar, set on the thin wooden floor of an entertainment center resting on a stack of books. It’s then plugged into a PA mixer. The digital source is an ancient tower computer running a pirated copy of Windows and controlled by a mouse and keyboard with cords draped across the floor. To hear that description you’d think this would look terrible, but somehow it’s humble and lovely and looks like a very nice way to enjoy some music until the lamps apparently melt your panels
  8. Obviously Anime is not for everyone, and “Attack on Titan” did pull an honorable mention, but if I’m ever talking to someone under 20 years old I am likely talking about “Boku no Hero Academia”.
  9. If it's younger males we're advocating for, can I recommend Sophie Turner and Joe Jonas' halloween costumes as a point in the Addams Family's favor?
  10. I recognize many of your memories are from the shows, which were well into syndication by the time i got to them, but for me the Addams Family was the 1991 movie. While I recognize this may be seen as heresy, can you fault me for preferring Anjelica Huston?
  11. This is lighting up a lot of "Best Of" lists lately, and for good reason. Approachable, delicately produced, and some blazing lyrics out of a clean little voice. Phoebe Bridgers - Punisher
  12. That entire setup is otherworldly cool. I would be jealous if anyone else had it, but I like you so much it just makes me happy to think of you enjoying what is almost certainly the best source gear available to man.

    Sad to hear it, Adam. My bugs have been few and far between, and the quality of the content is too good for me to turn away. I have 31 hours into the game now, which is riding the line between "I'm glad you enjoy your new game" and "hey, are you alright"? I love my wife, but she doesn't get me like Judy Alvarez does.

    I feel for folks playing it on last-gen consoles and having a bad time, but on my 2080 it’s going great. Brent has a saying for this...
  15. Quote: “I’ve been using over-ear headphones daily for around 16 years now, and every single pair I’ve used have come with a case that covers their entirety.” Yeah? Do you carry the box around? What shitty headphones are you buying?
