    I saw a youtube video some years ago where a guy played a bunch of riffs from big pop-punk songs either through metal effects hardware or just downtuned and they sounded pretty good

    For whatever people think of that stuff - I wasn't into it at the time and it does even less for me now - at least those bands were writing their own music for the most part and had to actually play it in-person at every show. I will take that 10 times out of 10 over the mainstream stuff now.

    Rock music being basically irrelevant in the mainstream is actually kind of sad because of how many dope bands are out there. And I'm not even talking about stuff that might fall into the weird/extreme metal genres that I love. Look at who the big bands are... still. Metallica and Foo Fighters are cool but Dave Grohl is 50 and he would be the youngest member of Metallica.

    One of the promises of the paid streaming era was to expose small acts that were tight as fuck to a large audience, but ultimately it seems to have resulted in Uptown Funk being played 100 billion times.

    Tiny Moving Parts is one of my favorite bands right now. You wouldn’t like them, but Dylan Mattheisen is a really good guitarist.

    I wanna circle back to the wedding thing because I missed it earlier today. Wedding planning is all about eliminating variables. You have to know if you’ll need excess seating, the chef needs an approximate number, you and the venue need booze numbers (they did beer wine but we had to go to the ABC to buy the liquor they served on our behalf), etc. Knowing your numbers to a reasonable degree of certainty takes a big load off. I’m all for giving your close buddies and cousins plus ones because you can simply call someone up and ask if they’re bringing a date, but I draw the line at carte blanche plus ones for everyone invited.

    It’s weird and simultaneously cool to me that when you drive into Anthem, Arizona, it says “by Del Webb”, because the entire city was designed by a construction company 20 years ago.

    Related - it’s also weird to me how the police and fire departments came into existence. Like all one day they just opened up the doors and were like, “Okay, we’re on the clock!”

    If you are ever in older sections of Philadelphia, some of the buildings still have stone/bronze plaques on them which designate which fire insurance company insured the building. Fire departments were organized by insurance companies and they put out the fires for their buildings.

    In San Francisco, they still have Special Patrol districts where sworn police officers patrol specific districts and businesses for a privately paid salary. Basically, they are real cops, but they only protect and patrol for the private clients who hire them.

    i’ve been feeling weird the last few days and literally confused marcus and bertwing earlier. i had just woken up after sleeping on and off for 12+ hours

    they both are very similar in the sack so it’s easy to see how that may have happened
