internet

Perhaps the first and foremost important characteristic to acknowledge about internet comments is that they are opportunistic. All their other features emerge from and are explained by this.

I really love this Roggenvid

This is one of my new favourites. I have some old favourites but this is my one of my new ones.

Bloom

The distant reverby synth/organ riff with the underwater church vibe is the sound I imagine angels make, and the chord movement it makes with the bass line make me feel heavenly.

Club bangaazzzz

This takes me right back to 08/09 era Presets type stuff. Wonderful synth riffs. I want to listen to this while on some really good stuff.

2001 => 2005

Listen to just the first 5-8 seconds of each clip.
2001

2005:

The only substantial difference is the latter is a bit sped up (and has a bit more reverb). Four years makes a helluva difference. Discovery was also Daft Punk’s best album, by far.

Slightly obsessed with this song too

Just a couple years late. Can’t seem to find an official clip online anywhere. This is a nice live version tho with Yukimi doing some cool dancing. It’s actually kind of interesting to see what singers do when they aren’t singing. Basically being on stage is a weird unreal zone where you can do literally anything? Which is strange because when you’re up there you feel so constrained, but actually mostly no one cares and it doesn’t matter.

The two best pieces of advice I’ve ever gotten about singing on stage is to remember that the audience actually wants you to do your best, which is totally true, and the second is to control your breathing beforehand. Breathing exercises to remind yourself to relax are incredibly useful before any kind of public speaking or performance and I still do them before lectures and presentations. Your body breathes too hard, too much if you let it, so you need to slow it all down and reign it in a bit. It’s probably half physiological and half just having a sense of control and something to do and focus on, but they feed into one another.

Shake It Off

This is probably my favorite video clip for a T-Swift song. Dat hair, dat outfit, my god.

So goofy, so charming.

Lot to say about it tho not right now.

UUGGHH the preview image of it tho is the twerking that is such a bad choice.
