Get Lonely

Album | 2006 | The Mountain Goats


24/11/2023

Favourite Track: Get Lonely, Woke Up New, Moon Over Goldsboro, In The Hidden Places

I always love every Mountain Goats album of course, I had heard Get Lonely before but I had 3 listens today and it grew on me even more. This album is beautiful and sorrowful and mountain and goats.

and I will come back home,

maybe call some friends

maybe paint some pictures

it all depends.

and I will get lonely and gasp for air.

Heretic Pride

Album | 2008 | The Mountain Goats


24/11/2023

Favourite Tracks: Lovecraft In Brooklyn, Sax Rhomer #1, Autoclave, How To Embrace a Swamp Creature

Again, I have listened to this album before but I listened a couple of times on cd again today and felt that it warranted a log. This album is another awesome one, was glad to spend more time with it today. Equally as good as Get Lonely but with its own distinct palette and flavour as all Mountain Goats albums have. I appreciate the sax presence on this record too, not as jazzy as Dark In Here (a favoured Mountain Goats album for me as a bit of a jazz freak) but the presence of that essence on this album is exciting.

Lovecraft In Brooklyn is a smasher of course. In my mind this song is atmospherically intertwined with later tracks like Rain In Soho (from Goths), but this may have more to do with the space within the tracks. They both feel so large in a way that forces acknowledgement from the listener.

It is always a joy to listen in full to Mountain Goats albums that I have picked off in the past. Before I ever listened to this whole album I loved Sax Rhomer #1 and Autoclave and those songs remain favourites of mine off this record. I dont know whether its purely time spent or just the impact of those songs in particular (probably both) but they have always stuck with me as their own individual pieces of art, and though I love them as just that, it is always nice to see songs in the contexts of their entire albums. I find this particularly with the Mountain Goats, as the whole records only bolster the potentials of great single tracks.

I start to sweat I can't cool down

I'm scared of all the strangers in this town

I try to tell you just why I've come

It's like I've got molasses on my tongue

I made it through town somehow

But who's going to save me now?

I'm out of my element I can't breathe

I'm out of my element

I can't breathe

Was going to fight the urge to add Autoclave lyrics as well but remembered that this is my website and I may do as I please

When I try to open up to you, I get completely lost

Houses swallowed by the earth, windows thick with frost

And I reach deep down within, but the pathways twist and turn

And there's no light anywhere, and nothing left to burn

And I am this great, unstable mass of blood and foam

And no emotion that's worth having could call my heart its home

My heart's an autoclave

25/11/2023

Watcher

Movie | 2022 | Chloe Okuno


25/11/2023

this movie was pretty good! most interesting thing about it was how tightly you were kept in the main characters perspective. She was an USAmerican who had moved to Romania with her husband and couldn't really speak the language, so whole swathes of the movie were in Romanian and inaccessable to her and a non Romanian speaking audience. Even with subtitles the most information typically conveyeyd was "speaks romanian". I imagine that if you knew the language this movie would be far less interesting? Or perhaps just interesting in a different way.

Blood On The Tracks

Album | 1975 | Bob Dylan


26/11/2023

i stay serious in thinking this is one of the best albums ever made. certainly one of my favourites (if not my favourite). This album is amazing, I feel like i was going a certain direction in my life and then i listened to this album for the first time in september/october and it was like ope,, time to never be the same ever again.

You'll never know the hurt I suffered

Nor the pain I rise above

And I'll never know the same about you

Your holiness or your kind of love

And it makes me feel so sorry

Blue Neighbourhood

Album | 2015 | Troye Sivan


26/11/2023

Favourite Tracks: FOOLS, EASE, COOL, YOUTH, TOO GOOD

after reviewing bob here earlier today it got me thinking about other albums that changed the course of my life, and this album was the first one i thought of. I first listened to this the year after it came out in 2016, and when i say this album had a profound effect on my developing psyche i'm not kidding. Troye Sivan even became my first goddamn gay crush (though year 5 me wasn't aware of the transgender yet). Because of all this baggage my reatings are distorted obviously, but I still like this album and it did change my life so there is that. Acctually still in the last tracks I just wanted to sneak this in before the day ends (23:36 right now) but by the time i finish typing i'll probably be done so its kosher,the listen was today!

I see swimming pools and living rooms and aeroplanes

I see a little house on the hill and children's names

I see quiet nights poured over ice and Tanqueray

But everything is shattering and it's my mistake

Only fools fall for you, only fools

Fucks? lived rent free in my young brain for sure and the melody goes hard. Pretty sure kid me didn't even know what tanqueray was and just said something random until he googled it,,, its ok its gin buddy we know now

Bloom

Album | 2018 | Troye Sivan


27/11/2023

Favourite Tracks: My My My!, Lucky Strike, The Good Side

yeah its 00:30 and i listened to this right after blue neighbourhood what of it? umm is this better than blue neighbourhood? probably,, but do i like it more? no. maybe its nostalgia biting at the ankles. i loved this album too when it first came out much like blue neighbourhood but it didnt reset my brain because blue neighbourhood already did that?

Lucky Strike is a transcendent track though,, possibly in like my top 5 favourite troye sivan tracks,, though this might be me just being dramatic who knowws.

Southbound

Album | 1966 | Doc Watson


29/11/2023

Favourite Tracks: Walk On Boy, Alberta, Southbound, Windy And Warm-Instrumental, Tennessee Stud, That Was The Last Thing On My Mind, Never No More Blues

What to say about this album. For the amount that I love individual Doc Watson songs (particularly Alberta) I am shocked that it took me this long to listen to this full thing. I am so glad I did because goddamn this album is a treat.

I guess its time to talk about my first love, Alberta. I actually don't have the words to describe how much I love this song (I know makes for brilliant review material). I am so sorry for everyone who I have forced to listen to this song while I stare at them to try and beam my feelings about it into their brains.

Her hair lit the world with its golden glow

And the smile on her face burned my heart away

Its amazing that a song can be so short and contain the amount of emotion that Doc is able to convey. It is in the lyrics but also his voice and the accompanying guitar (yeah you have to listen to this whole album). There is something about the way all of his musical elements marry together that make me feel emotions I couldn't feel properly on my own, and its so enchanting when that stuff is facilitated by music, and of course thats what folk music is about a lot of the time.

Alberta what's on your mind

Alberta what's on your mind

My heart is so sad 'cause you treat me so bad

Alberta what's on your mind

initially when I was logging this album I gave it a 9.5,,, but I must be honest with myself, this album is a personal 10, its actually perfect, Doc can join Bob in my own personal brain-based hall of fame.

to finish we will have some lyrics from That Was The Last Thing On My Mind, but before that I have to sing the praises of Tennessee Stud because my god is it a slap daddy of a tune. The instrumental is awesome and the storyline is awesome and the horses are in love too!!!

You got reasons a-plenty for goin'

This I know, this I know

For the weeds have been steadily growin'

Please don't go, please don't go

Are you goin' away with no words of farewell?

Can there be not a trace left behind?

I could have loved you better, didn't mean to be unkind

You know, that was the last thing on my mind

Before Sunset

Movie | 2004 | Richard Fuckin Linklater


12/12/2023

ok light me up light me on fire i know this movie is beloved but its fuckin boring i'm sorry. its not even that i don't like linklater,,, i have a history off liking his ass and i did love waking life,,, but thus movie dude. maybe its that i don't care for a romance focused story, if this could be called that? because this shit reminded me of when harry met sally which sucks ass (i know also unpopular). The best part of this movie was the goddamn cat.

the actual best part of this movie was finishing it for one reason,,, when i began this i didn't realise it was linklater, and like the whole time i was thinking "hey this kinda pointless pure conversation style reminds me of linklaters ass but more boring." the pure sense of euphoria i felt when seeing it was in fact linklater in the credits was golden,,, but thats only because it made me feel smart somewhere inside.

not as if they were having extraordinarily boring conversations but just that they weren't saying anything particularly insightful while the movie felt like it was screaming "THERE IS INSIGHT HERE" at me. ummm, well acted, but you couldn't pay me to genuinely give a fuck about anyone but the cat.

i'm glad i listened to this three times and not just one before the log. tbh on first listen this album disappointed me,, because i knew it was a jazz rap album i was really building it up and expecting to love it wholeheartedly off rip. after i let go of what i was expecting this to sound like i enjoyed it thoroughly, legendary for a reason for sure.

i think my enjoyment of this as a storyline and a thing that adds to other r things was severely limited by the fact that I know nothing about batman. Read this because dad came into my room yesterday like "hey i found this thought you would like the art", and indeed i did!! this book is visually stunning and indeed the art is the main reason for my 6.6 stars, barring the jokers fagalicious swag (as always), and some banger lines:

A Nightmare On Elm Street

Movie | 2010 | Samuel Bayer


22/01/2024

dont watch this

this movie was a bad movie,, repressed memory mention which always smashes my gourdes. contained both an actress from supernatural (blonde ruby) and twilight (emmet) in the first 5 minutes which is more than my little heart can take. a garbage movie. frustrating changes to freddy's backstory itself, nooo he couldnt have just killed kids when he was alive, he needed to have implied violent rape and child porno things happening. it suffers from the same illness that all of these horror franchise remakes from the '00's and '10's do.

some shot for shot recreation happening here to. not something im strictly against provided that its like, done well and that the magic of the original framing is preserved. a shot which was so haunting in the original (bath scene) was recreated but just framed poorly? and its like great this just now looks bad. think i might make a lil article about these but dont hold me too it.

look at me,, look at me. this is one of the worst horror movies ive ever seen. as a standalone it would be bad, but in the context of the series, especially thinking fondly back on the first like, two, this is the worst shit i have ever seen. i liked this less than the narraty cop one (because you know this is another cop one, so the clarifier of "narraty" or not becomes important).

the main cenobite we saw was just a tory. why were their so many women bowing down on their knees. why was there a fucking angel. what made hellraiser lore more fun in the beginning was it didnt really ascribe to a christian idea of hell. there was never clarity on the existence of a place like heaven, the place the cenobites were that people were called to was a place they entered by solving a puzzle. yes they had to die to enter but first they opt'ed inm whether accidentally or on purpose. it was hell but it was about the line between pleasure and pain and like "absolute sensation" or whatever. but this, this fucking movie said "what if there was an angel that saved him? what if it was just torture? what if you were tried for your sins? what if we sucked the magic and questioning out of the original wierd and undeniebly genderfuck kinky movie? don't worry its still kinky theres a bunch of women naked on their knees bowing, every female "cenobite" you see actually."
