Chance the Rapper
* Jack White especially, can be a total asshole in real life which serves as quite the conundrum because I generally don’t believe you really could separate the art from the artist
Music That I like But Don’t Consider Mine
The whole rush to have a gift ready precisely on December 25th is dumb. A gift given before or after that date should have just as much meaning. What is this social embarrassment of not having a gift prepared on December 25th? The romanticism of rushing through department stores (or more likely, feverishly selecting express shipping from the dropdown menu) on December 24th is a complete waste of resources. Think of all the harried post office workers rushing around instead of spending time with THEIR family because you couldn’t make the time to make a decision in time –frankly I think that means you don’t care enough (hell, good intentions, etc.) so why don’t you just show up empty-handed because those are your true feelings anyway.
What is this odd ceremony? This systematic dance that we engage in year after year? Only to return the crap on December 26th. Otherwise the stuff settles at the bottom of clear plastic storage containers bought from The Container Store. What a waste of labor, of energy, of material.
Is that you were so desperate for change, in such a dire life threatening situation where that for whatever reason the current political system wasn’t working for you. You’re unemployed and uninsured and have been stuck in this institutionalized hole for a few presidents.
(In which case I am sorry to say that I don’t think Trump is going to help. You, dear sir were indubitably duped)
Right off the bat unacceptable reasons:
–lower tax rates
–lower insurance premiums
–Hillary’s corruption (because Donald Trump’s is worse)
–Anyone but Hillary
–Trump as a businessman (he’s a lousy one)
I was listening to the Fresh Air episode about sense of self, about how there are people that have these super rare disorders that make them think they are dead, or that their own arm is a gross extra appendage.
And while I have heard of these disorders before, it sort of blew my mind. I dunno, it just felt like humans are just mechanical bodies and our minds are just software. most of the time the software is inputted correctly and we can go about our business. working, playing, busying ourselves for the duration of our battery life. But sometimes the software is glitchy. We are Legos. We are SIMS.
It just makes it feel like whatever free will we thought we had simply the result of correctly inputted software.

ok so i can’t get over how perfectly kitschy everything was in this movie like i can’t describe it, it was almost too perfect like it was ready to be worshipped on tumblr and Rookie Mag. It was like art imitating life imitating art. It was as if all the hipster mood boards were thrown up in a movie to be consumed by the same community that produced it. It was like a regurgitation of a regurgitation. What is this world of 2015 where everyone dresses in 90s and 70s clothes? This can’t be unironic can it?
Like Earl and Rachel’s clothes. I can smell the Netflix screen shots peppering everyone precocious 11-18 year old’s tumblr feed.
The stop motion! Their movie parodies! It was too perfect it was almost barf-inducing
The token black best friend and the pretty-in-a-smart-way tragic love interest girl that will change your life forever
The badass intellectual teacher
The hippie but well-meaning parents
Like, haven’t I seen this movie before?
And yet, the dialogue, the feelings felt authentic. For whatever reason, the well-tread territory didn’t feel trite.
Plus, the cinematography was pretty fresh.
This movie reminded me of:
Perks of Being A Wallflower
I don’t know if this is the most accurate one but it’s accurate enough for ME

nothing matters we’re just star matter
