Taut Like A String

++The Test Friends have very little drama between them. Where are the eyes with daggers? What happened to reality people?

++Farms and religion: EDM is getting so Russian literature in its metaphors.

Friendzy

++Hee hee, I sound like this sometimes..

++I wonder why Apple doesn't let you scroll up to down and vice versa while browsing thru your picture roll. Wouldn't cost them any money..

++Came up with some imaginary dialogue for a gangster movie this morning while refilling my coffee:

Waitress: [annoyed] Would you like me to freshen up your coffee?

Gangster : [deep in conversation with another gangster, balling a fist] Would you like me to freshen up your face? (See Eddie Izzard video.)

++I've been at this for a long time now, who knows why... And Skrillex has been around forever now too. Still relevant! Artists like Jauz are even starting to treat him with a little reverence, I think. Anyway, I like this part of the review: "Open season for bass hunters."

Ode To Bear

++Ooh, Ben and Nondairyz! (I want to be Hoda Kotb.)

++Mount Kimbie has some stuff in the works that I won't get into, I'm posting this one old one today because I'm into the itchy texture of the first half and don't hate when the vocals seep in..

++Hm, the eternal/internal debate between band you really wanna see versus lesser act at pretty venue you haven't yet been to...

++Singleton has pets and mum who stays loads. Get that foreignspeak into a crossword!

++"Soo... Tell me what you want, what you really really want?!" (I just love the emotions/expressions on the faces of these Gary Frank sketches. Any one of them captures me, depending on the approach, to a Monday morning.)

++Algorithms..very hot this year. Fwiw, as someone who might need rehab for crosswords...as a matter of preference I don't like clues that have foreign answers. I usually still get them, but if I wanted to solve a puzzle in French I'd go to Burkina Faso.

++Ah, a twist ending.. didn't see that coming.

The Muted Heart

Minnow Beats Whale: As mentioned the other day, I have no plans to start listening to Tanis, but I was curious to hear what they were doing with their interstitial and theme music. And even just a casual query into THAT simple question set the Tanis Redditors on a new scent.

Little Pretty

++SO sexist! (I know that's the wrong interpretation of this tweet.)

++Here's a song from one of Leo Tolstoy's actual descendants..once in a while I like old, simple, tinny production.

++While I most likely won't get around to listening to the Tanis podcast I agree with its creators assertion that people seek and crave a little mystery in our all too easily searchable world.

++Speaking of searching...Funny coinky.. Even before Gwyneth waxed about it on Instagram I was looking up the meaning of Erewhon(market) and it's (almost) the word Nowhere spelled backwards.

++What did they do to you at the W Barcelona, Gareth Seltzer? What went down there?

++Haven't researched the plot of Manchester by The Sea, but am guessing it has something to do with sweaters.

Gradually...

Well I got nuthin today so I decided to blow the dust off the Inbox!:

++AM Gold: Ben Watt, formerly of Everything But the Girl will play the Echo on 4/4 with Bernard Butler of Suede in support of his new album "Hendra." 

++"The Birds Outside Sang" is the debut from Florist who will soon embark on a tour of the East Coast.

++And finally pianist Michael Mizrahi's sophomore LP Currents drops March 25 and he will play Brooklyn's National Sawdust if you are out that way. Very pretty!

Quickies

++Know how you feel, vintage store decor buddy.

++I wanna do that thing they do in movies where a jerk puts his finger over the other person's mouth and says: "Shhh. Shhh. It's alright. Hush." Only to this ravioli before I eat it.

++Ff to the 1:58 mark to hear the Ffun warm up exercises Chris Parnell does prior to voiceover work.
