Detox to Retox theme by Marg

It’s like a Gilmore Girls-type charming town, but filled with UCB freaks

— Jessica St. Clair talking about her and Lennon Parham’s show, Playing House on the Nerdist podcast (x) HASHTAG RENEW PLAYING HOUSE

Hard to Explain - The Strokes

“Hard to Explain” isn’t much, really. It’s built on a backbone of stately downstrokes. It’s a rhythm guitar that plays every chord it possibly can and a chorused and overdriven lead guitar that finds 15 hooks that fit the key and plays them all. It’s Casablancas writing verses, a pre-chorus, and a pre-pre-chorus that all fight each other for the most instantly recognizable. Then the actual chorus comes, and the drums turn live– those driving splashing cymbals– and suddenly “I missed the last bus/ I’ll take the next train” is seared into your brain.

Its genius is that it’s the song everyone wanted to write. It’s the culmination of every band that’s ever practiced on a couple of cheapo Fender amps in someone’s garage or basement, playing some cool drum machine preset they found, broken, in a thrift store, saying “When we find a drummer, man” to each other. In fact, the entire garage revival of the past decade is probably directly indebted to the track. Like an infinite number of monkeys will eventually write Shakespeare, an infinite number of garage bands banging away on Telecasters would have eventually wrote “Hard to Explain”. The Strokes were just the ones that stumbled into it

   ”The news reporters would show Nick Dunne, husband of the missing woman, standing metallically next to his father-in-law, arms crossed, eyes glazed, looking almost bored as Amy’s parents wept. And then worse. My longtime response, the need to remind people I wasn’t a dick, I was a nice guy despite the affectless stare, the haughty, douchebag face.
   So there it came, out of nowhere, as Rand begged for his daughter’s return: a killer smile.” — Gillian Flynn, Gone Girl

"In a 1991 Chicago Tribune interview, he described the offers he received this way: ‘I get a lot of [expletive] scripts, stereotypical unhuman, uncomplex, thick-lipped, long-limbed heathens. I get those, and I throw them in the garbage can. I’m a member of a very complex and richly valued race. I just don’t buy seeing lies about my race perpetuated.’"

My coworkers started talking about comedy yesterday, and part of me was like “Enjoyment of comedy is subjective, all opinions are valid”… and a slightly larger part of me was like “YOUR OPINIONS ARE WRONG”

Love is a series of collages that were created using pieces of over 60 store bought puzzles. Although puzzle pieces are unique, and can only fit into one place within a puzzle, they are sometimes interchangeable within a brand. These puzzles were cut using the same die, but depict unrelated images.
