Thoughts on Billie Eilish?
i don't have a lot of strong opinions on billie eilish. even when i was young i was always a bit out of step with whoever's in vogue

skimming over her wikipedia page i've found out she's slightly younger than my baby sister (yikes) and one of her middle names is "pirate" (cool)

Don't the "no alcohol if born after this date in 1999" signs make you feel old? :P

not really... i've gotten pretty acclimated to the idea of 2000s kids growing up and hitting their 20s and doing all the things people in their 20s do. why shouldn't they? i don't think it's healthy to obsess over how old you feel. i guess that's kind of hypocritical of me considering i was just talking about how my youngest sister is older than billie eilish, but it doesn't really matter. i used to have a lot of angst about it, but i don't anymore, really.

i guess there's a sense of perspective there too, like... i can't feel that old when there's people alive today who were born before the second world war. when there's people who basically remember what we think of as pre-modern society, people who remember the 60s and woodstock and watergate and shit...

like... i'm not old enough to remember major political upheavals like the reagan years, the fall of the berlin wall and the fall of the USSR, the first gulf war, the rodney king riots, etc... even my memories of the time before mass internet usage are nascent and fleeting. if you think about it my entire purview of history is still sort of defined by this information-age post-cold-war view of things... i still share more in common with the kids for whom those signs are relevant than with, say, people who grew up in the 70s.

favorite early web memory?

1) making my own web page at the age of 6 using horizontal rule graphics i found online like rainbow lines, using some crappy WYSIWYG editor. i don't think it had any content
2) getting on pseudonymous non-registration For Kidz message boards and posting about pokemon and zelda (and writing terrible fanfiction)
3) signing up for a forum for the first time, seeing the stock FF7 avatars everybody had, and being a hyperactive little shit online

i've never bought a lottery ticket. i knew kids whose parents bought them lottery tickets to go along with their other christmas presents. i always thought that was morbid.

nah, but later on i made little word documents with even more embarrassing fanfiction (this time sonic and invader zim fanfiction, lol) and sort of laid them out like little personal web pages. but i'd kind of been banned from being part of the web around the time i'd gotten ahold of microsoft word so it didn't even occur to me to try to make a public-facing web page. (parents found out about that forum i was on, they did not approve, long story) also didn't realize word could save .html documents until much later on.

yes. it's a secret feature put in calculators when they were originally in the CIA, to prevent people from accessing the calculation history. just divide by zero and you've covered your tracks




update to earlier post: this. this rainbow horizontal rule. this exact gif, i saw in like 1996

it was kind of a magical time. i miss personal web pages, i miss the awe at the capabilities of the internet. i miss early message boards and the sort of... camaraderie of being with and talking to people. the sort of like... emphasis on a person's personality and how they think rather than anything superficial and everything that rose out of that. you know? before social media fucked everything.

i've talked about it plenty before to the point where it's probably exhausting to hear anymore but yeah. i do miss the old web.

What would you say was the best year of your life? 2011 was definitely mine, with 2020 looking good so far ;)

hmm i dunno. really the recent strand of years from 2016-2018 were really good for me personally (even if they were shit for most of the country), i moved out of my parents' house and out of missouri and started transitioning and just became a lot more confident and happy. having an abuser harass me in 2019 kind of undid a lot of that but overall i'd say i'm in a better place than most of the 2010s, esp the middle

there's definitely a chunk of the late 90s where i was pretty oblivious and happy... the year 2000 comes close to being one of the best years of my life for sure. most of the early 2000s were pretty good too, really other than the constant 9/11 fear-mongering and watching bu$h do Iraq or whatever they were pretty idyllic (2004's when shit hit the fan; all the jingoistic rhetoric really started ramping up, then the abu ghraib stuff came out and it was sickening, plus i started hitting puberty and my dysphoria started getting pretty serious. i basically just zoned out and completely detached from everything by the end of the year lol)

i guess if i have to pick one year, maybe 2010 actually? lotta good shit that year, first time i expressed any gender doubts to another human being and got acknowledged, basically the first time my egg cracked. plus just a lot of positive things, had my first girlfriend that year, the whole anime scene started really changing for the better, panty & stocking (the best anime ever) came out, it still felt like obama was gonna be a good president and not a neolib, and made a ton of cool ass musical discoveries. most other years i can name some huge massive negative that brings down my opinion some but 2010 didn't really have a ton of stuff like that.

2020 is looking mixed so far. lots of good, lots of really, really potentially bad. and scary. very uncertain year. particularly the election and coronavirus. i tend to feel worse in election years compared to most others. i hate the stress.

i had to ponder this for a bit because none of the genres i like are actually all that obscure, but here's some answers:

trip-hop
lamblaikacrustation. i'm not all that into massive attack beyond the stuff elizabeth fraser did with them. i listened to one of tricky's solo albums, it was aight but just not really my thing

post-hardcore
unwoundfugazidrive like jehusmart went crazy. MASS OF THE FERMENTING DREGS if they count.

"post-rock"
what a broad genre term. anyway,
bark psychosistortoiseslint. godspeed you! black emperor are obligatory

shoegaze
shoegaze isn't obscure. but here's some bands people might overlook:
swirliesthe ecstasy of saint theresaflying saucer attack
i love MBV and slowdive and all the usual suspects too ofc

whatever the hell idol taxi are
idol taxi

cool shoegaze + IDM fusion shit
sweet trip !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!



as for albums whatever albums are featured in the videos are my favs, with a few additions:

leaves turn inside you - unwound
sounds of the satellites - laika
millions now living will never die - tortoise
they spent their wild youthful days in the glittering world of the salons - swirlies
you will never know why - sweet trip




i have a friend who's really into this genre called "zeuhl". is that obscure

eh -- a little? mostly i just feel cautious, not really terrified or panicked or anything like that. i pretty much feel this same anxiety every flu season, and the whole coronavirus outbreak feels like it's just a really bad flu season. so it's nothing i haven't dealt with before. lots of paranoid handwashing, lots of avoiding going out unless i need to. never touching my face irl. same things i do every winter-early spring, basically.

mostly this outbreak has unveiled to me some things i already kinda knew, namely:

  1. how much hubris stupid rich old baby boomers have in thinking they're invincible to a fucking pandemic

  2. how cursed cruise ships are, actually, irl

  3. how quickly donald trump was able to completely gut our infrastructure in dealing with pandemics
