The Miami Dolphins - Melting Popsicle

noisy arty punk, female vocals. Like a mix of guerilla toss and screaming females, a bit. No love for the football team, but Lamar Miller is on my fantasy team and Knowshon Moreno is a former bulldog, so maybe there’s a little love.

Hey people! It’s been awhile cos I’ve been busy. I’m gonna continue to be busy cos I’m going to CMJ in NYC!

pls say hi to me if you see me roaming the streets. For those who have forgotten, this is what I look like and this is a band I like: image

If you are in any of these cities you should go see my boyfriend’s band and try to guess which one he is.

Also go see one of my fav current musicians, Green Gerry, he’s playing two / shows. Listen to him it’s too good.

But if yr in a city that’s not New York, that’s cool too! If I find any cool bands I’ll post about them here.

Lorde - Ribs

I’ve never felt more alone, it feels so scary getting old.

When I was in junior high I had a friend, a best friend. I was probably a little bit in love with her. I was maybe a lot in love with her. I don’t remember anymore, really; I’ve thought “I was probably in love with my best friend” so many times that I’ve wrapped that memory around in my head like bubblegum. But we would curl up on her bed and eat sour straws and drink that weird artificial Lipton iced tea and watch shitty horror movies, the way you do when you’re 14 and everything is like the sugar on sour straws, sharp at first but sweet down to the core. You’re the only friend I need, sharing beds like little kids. Even huge, stinging hurts seem temporary. But she moved away, not a big deal, just one of those things, and suddenly I was 15 and felt like I could see the whole huge inconceivably vast future stretching out in front of me. She said “I’m going to miss you” and I heard “I am already filing you away as a memory”. It drives you crazy getting old but also it feels so scary getting old. We’ll laugh until our ribs get tough, but that will never be enough. The realization, strange and soft at first but exploding like over-carbonated soda eventually, the realization that no matter how much you like to laugh you’re still shaking. That will never be enough. I want them back, I want them back, the minds we had. It’s not enough to feel the lack. I want em.

That sentence, tacked onto the end of a chorus, a multitude of voices sending it home: It’s not enough to feel the lack. You miss who you were; you’re always going to miss who you were. You can’t help thinking of who you are now as the person you might someday look back on. Every time I’ve thought about committing suicide, it’s come with a backwash of preemptive disappointment in myself. I tell myself I’ll look back at this in five years (ten years, twenty) and I’ll laugh about how silly I was, how rash I was. Such a teenager. There’s a certain sick safety in that, at least. I’m still here. I’m still alive. Lorde sings it feels so scary getting old and I think yeah. This song makes me feel scared shitless, but this song also makes me feel like maybe there’s nothing wrong with banishing self-destructive thoughts because living in them might make for an ugly memory someday.

I’m out obscuring myself this week on the radio. Listen me play a bunch of early 70s/late 80s british stuff I’ve never heard of until last night

“Like almost all of Beefheart’s recorded work, it was not even “ahead” of its time in 1969. Then and now, it stands outside time, trends, fads, hypes, the rise and fall of whole genres eclectic as walking Christmas trees, constituting a genre unto itself: truly, a musical Monolith if ever there was one.” 
Lester Bangs

You guys have no idea how obsessed with Radiohead I was in high school. This is such a big exciting day for me, I almost starting crying when I started listening to this album. Only 2 tracks are small enough to post on tumblr but I’ll post them.

The best karaoke song is no scrubs there is no better song sing no scrubs at next karaoke night realise how better you feel.
