I'm 32 years old, working as a Product Manager / Instructor in Toronto and making ~$78,000 (CAD)
2020.10.09 15:28 PracticalShineI'm 32 years old, working as a Product Manager / Instructor in Toronto and making ~$78,000 (CAD)
This is an update of my MD from last year, which you can find here. All figures are in CAD. (Approx. CAD/USD conversion is 1 CAD = 0.75 USD. So my income is ~$58,240 USD. I've tried to note the change since last time where I could! Section One: Assets and Debt
Total NW: $81,100
Up from ~$58,000 last year.
Retirement Balance (and how you got there): $62,230
Up from $45,466 last year. I've been adding to my RRSP since my first "real" job in highschool - while my early contributions were miniscule, it got me in the habit of saving. My previous employer had a good match, which also helped.
Savings account balance: $11,290
TFSA up from $9,846 last year. Not a huge improvement - I focused more on my RRSP and Emergency Fund this year.
Emergency Fund Balance: $7,500
Was $1,103 last year.
Chequing Account Balance:
Almost everything gets autotransferred on payday to my retirement accounts, sinking funds, or a holding account where my bills are autopaid from. I only keep my "discretionary spending" money in this account.
Debt: None. I pay off my cc as soon as I make a purchase, and check my transactions/pay off any autopay on a weekly basis. I run all my purchases through my cc to get points toward free groceries.
Was there an expectation for you to attend higher education? Did you participate in any form of higher education? If yes, how did you pay for it?: There was expectation, but not from family - I was the first in my family to go to higher ed. They saved and planned to contribute if I did want to go, but what I did after highschool was up to me. I was top of my class in highschool so there was a lot of expectations from the other adults in my life (teachers, school counselors, etc) that I would really make something of myself. My parents paid my tuition for two years of my undergrad, my grandparents gave me a few thousand dollars as a gift toward my expenses and the remainder I paid for myself with my savings from working part time and through summers.
Growing up, what kind of conversations did you have about money? Did your parent/guardian(s) educate you about finances? We didn't have any serious conversations about money, but there was a lot of emphasis on saving long term, saving up for things we wanted, and occasionally if I wanted something expensive (like when I wanted my hair done for middle school graduation), a discussion about how mom or dad would have worked X hours to pay for it. I never felt hard done by, but there were definitely a lot of things other kids had or got to do that we didn't. Once I got my first job I didn't get any spending money from my parents anymore.
What was your first job and why did you get it?: In 8th grade I got a job at my school, cleaning tables during lunch recess (our school didn't have a cafeteria, so kids ate at their desks). The principal offered it to me and my best friend. It paid $50/month. It seems insane now because we were not old enough to work legally. In hindsight I think it was the school finding a way to subsidize the costs of the year-end school trip (a week-long overnight trip out of province) for two families who didn't quite qualify for the school's official aid but wouldn't have been able to afford it otherwise. All the money went to the trip, and I babysat to get some spending money.
Did you worry about money growing up?: Not really. There were some lean times but I never felt like I really wanted for anything. By the time I was in highschool things had gotten much more stable.
Do you worry about money now? Yep. Not about day-to-day spending, but I worry about longer-range money issues like whether I'll be able to own a home, save enough to retire, etc. A lot of my friends are a lot more comfortable and able to buy homes and generally be freer with money, mostly those in dual-income-no-kids situations - and I'm feeling that lag a bit.
At what age did you become financially responsible for yourself and do you have a financial safety net?: I haven't received any financial support from family since I was about 20, but if my parents come to visit me they'll usually bring some grocery items from their Costco runs and refuse to accept payment for it. I currently have about 4 months' emergency fund saved, and could last another 6 on my TFSA if I needed to. Working on bumping this up!
Do you or have you ever received passive or inherited income?: While I was in undergrad and paying my own tuition my grandparents gave me $2000 as a birthday gift to give me a little breathing room in my budget and so "you can do something other than work and study". They were hoping it would enable me to meet a husband and get my MRS (hahaha). It did not, but it did ease my stress about money.
Section Two: Income
Main Job Monthly Take Home: $3,816 after deductions. I got a 10% raise in July.
Deductions: Tax $882, EI $86, CPP $137, Retirement plan $210 (matched by employer)
PTO: 18 days + 5 additional during the holidays when our office is shut.
Bonus: I get a bonus each year from the day job as well. This year, $5500 pre-tax.
Side Gig Monthly Take Home: ~$900 averaged monthly
Varies year to year based on student enrolment and whether I get funding for additional content development time.
Salary Story (Averaged hourly earnings into approx annual earnings so it's more "apples to apples" comparison)
Pre-2010: ~$15-20k per year. Various jobs during highschool and university. Retail, farm and animal shelter work, tutoring, baby/pet/housesitting, factory job in the summers.
2010: ~$35k Intern, Retail, Nanny, Temp. I graduated university and started some postgrad certificate courses full time through summer. Had a PT retail job, a FT unpaid internship after summer classes ended, and was a nanny for a relative's kids in exchange for a steep discount on room and board. After my internship ended I picked up a temp receptionist gig that paid well while it lasted - I was able to save up to move out to my own place after Christmas.
Q1 + Q2 of 2011: ~$22k Freelancer / Assistant. The company I interned for hired me back as a freelancer at $19/hr, and I got a remote job as a "business assistant" (aka whatever they needed) at min wage, but I could set my own hours and work up to 35hrs/week. I crammed in as much as I could because my freelance job wasn't guaranteed.
Remainder of 2011: ~$36k - Digital Assistant. My day job offered me a FT position and I was so grateful for the stability (my freelance hours had been uneven) that I accepted their first offer not realizing it was less than I was making as a freelancer. I remind myself that at least now I have benefits and some security, and I still have my other job. Two weeks later they tell me if I don't quit my remote "business assistant" job I'll be fired since that company is in the same industry, so I do. Pushover!
2013: ~37k - Digital Assistant. Yep, two years, no promotion, small raise. Love working in the arts! /s. After I was forced out of my remote job in 2011 I started babysitting, petsitting, shoveling snow for my older neighbours - anything I could to bring in some extra cash, but I have no idea what I made from that work. Most of it ended up going out the door pretty quick on regular life expenses.
2014: $40k - Digital Coordinator. Promotion at last. I struggled a lot with depression throughout the end of 2013 and all of 2014 after some traumatic events, and I'm so shocked and thrilled that something good actually happened. I don't negotiate because I'm a husk of a person. By this point I'm not functional enough to keep up all my side gigs.
2016: ~$45k - Digital Coordinator / Instructor: After so much therapy I'm starting to realize my company is trash and my industry is a dead end for me, and I actually have the confidence to do something about it. I dump my shitty boyfriend. I get a part time gig as an instructor. My boss tells me in my performance review I have "no leadership potential" and I go home and immediately start looking for another job.
2017: ~$63k - Product Manager / Instructor: After many failed interviews, I finally get a new job offer at $55k - less than a PM typically makes in Toronto, but more than I was making before, and I was so hungry for a new opportunity I just jump on it. My new manager is really invested in my PD, within the first few months they have me speak on their behalf at three conferences and commit to $2,500 of PD spending.
2018:~$76k - Product Manager / Instructor: I get a raise at my day job (modest - about $2500) but it's a crackerjack year for the course I teach - it's a high enrolment year so I have more sections. Less free time, but now that I'm more experienced it's a bit easier and it'd be hard to find another side gig that pays as well for the amount of time I put in.
2020: ~78k - Product Manager / Instructor: Sensing a theme? I'm not much of a job hopper, which I know is impacting my salary growth, but I'm a "craves stability" person and I love my job, they are constantly giving me opportunities to learn and grow and investing in my PD. Plus a 10% raise.
Section Three: Expenses
Rent: $1,505 including utilities - just went up from $1,476 in September. I live solo in a one-bedroom in an old walk-up building.
Renters insurance: $29
Retirement contributions: $1,600
Sinking Funds contributions: $205
Emergency Fund contribution: $500, plus occasional random lump sums if I have discretionary funds left over.
Donations: approx $100/mo, sometimes more. I volunteer about 10-15 hrs/month with different organizations throughout the year, though it varies based on their activities. Been helping with a lot of digital admin/tech support/mailing list stuff this year.
Transit: About $14/month - I'm working from home, and my neighbourhood has everything I need within walking distance. I use transit a handful of times a month these days, so I just plonk some money on my card when I need to.
Therapy: $540 per quarter for BetterHelp, approx $168/month.
I get $800/year reimbursed under my work benefits.
Subscriptions: $27 - Netflix, Spotify, extra iCloud storage, and a Quip toothbrush.
Day 1 - Thursday ($42)
9am - Slept in! I have today and tomorrow off (using up some PTO) and am glad for the extra rest, but the construction work around my apartment building kicks off at 9:01 on the dot, waking me up. I browse the internet before showering and getting the day started. 11am - I have a massage appointment so I mask up and walk over. It’s a sunny fall morning, so an enjoyable walk. I’ve been in a lot of pain the last while after an unexpected hospital stay and medical procedures so I’m really looking forward to some relief now that I’m cleared to have this massage! ($30 tip for my RMT, insurance covers the actual bill.) I was nervous about COVID safety but this is a small clinic and they’re taking it really seriously (face shields and masks for all!), and it’s nice to have a massage - it’s the first “non-invasive, non-medical” human touch I’ll have since March, since I live by myself and have been strict about distancing. I have to say, it feels incredibly weird to be naked except a mask. Like being naked with a watch on. 12:45pm - I feel so much better! I walk a long route home to enjoy the sunshine and stop at a bakery and pick up some pumpkin, apple, and caramel scones ($12 for three, incl tip), since they have a little doorway table for service. Most cafes in the neighbourhood have restored indoor seating and I feel weird about going inside past unmasked diners. Once I get back home I have a scone, spend a couple of hours answering students’ questions for my teaching job, and wash some dishes in the kitchen. The afternoon sort of disappears into that, plus some random internet browsing/YouTube sewing tutorials. 6pm - Therapy call (prepaid - I use BetterHelp and pay quarterly - I’m due to pay in 2 weeks). I am so grateful to be back in therapy. Isolation has been hard on me, and my medical situation really left me raw. It’s scary to have a totally normal day and end it in an ambulance unexpectedly, and I’m still unpacking my feelings about it. 7pm - I sodastream some water, add lavender syrup, and hop on Zoom for game night with some friends. We play Jackbox games together and snort-laugh the whole way through. This is a new group I was just starting to befriend IRL in the weeks before the pandemic. These weekly game nights have been so great to keep the momentum. 9pm - I dress my last tortilla as a pizza, bake it, and then dump the remainder of a box of arugula on top after it’s out of the oven and eat it over the sink like a crispy pizza taco. After eating I text a bit with a guy I met on reddit (henceforth RG - Reddit Guy - same guy from my last MD.) He sends me a video of his dog doing tricks, and we count down and hit play on the same TV episode. We’ve been doing this little nightly ritual since the start of the pandemic, and it’s a nice way to keep this long-distance whatever-this-is going. Things have stepped up from merely flirty to decidedly romantic in the last year, but with the US/Canadian border closed for the foreseeable future who knows where this is going or if we’ll ever get to meet. 11:30pm - I have a quick warm bath before bedtime and after making a nest from all my pillows, fall asleep to a “sleep story” from the Calm app. Some smooth-voiced man talking about an island in Norway takes me away.
Day 2 - Friday ($69)
8am - I wake up before my alarm, laze around in bed reading newsletters and reddit. I open my work email, file away all the automated messages I get from our software, and close it again. I usually check it once a day on vacation just to clear that shit as a gift to my future self. 9:30am - I shower while listening to a podcast and check my messages while brushing my teeth. A neighbourhood pal asks if I want to have a coffee in the park with her before it gets too cold for these outside meetups. I reply and we arrange a plan to meet up. 10:15am - My friend texts and says she’s going to stop at Starbucks on her way to the park - do I want her to grab me anything? I mobile order a caramel apple spice ($5 - I’m off caffeine - doctor’s orders) and tell her it should be there waiting when she gets there. I bring the two remaining scones from yesterday’s bakery trip for us. We hang out at the park for a few hours on our distanced blankets, chatting until our fingertips are thoroughly chilled. Like a lot of my friends, the pandemic has had her and her partner seeking cheaper, more spacious dwellings out of the city. They’re moving in a few months. This is the fourth such announcement I’ve had this fall, so I’m better at being excited for them and asking questions all about their new digs rather than being openly bummed. But inside I’m a little gutted. It’s hard to watch my people move away! 12:30pm: I took the long route home from the park, then settle in with some mint tea and check on my students. I’m teaching online this semester and the course is “asynchronous” - meaning they move through interactive modules of written+video content at their own pace, so I post and reply frequently on the discussion boards, answer emails, and help them along. I have a chatty group this term - there’s a very active kdrama discussion thread in the “non-course related” board. I love when my online students still work at connecting with their classmates - I can’t imagine what it would be like trying to do fully online school and missing out on that in-person experience. 2pm - I whip up a quick chicken soup with some chicken and veggies from the freezer, some egg noodles and a bouillon cube and eat that before spending the afternoon cleaning up - vacuuming, laundry, and online browsing for some sewing supplies. I spend $64 on some additional fabric and bias tape I keep forgetting to buy to finish some projects. I can’t wait to go to fabric stores in person again someday. While waiting for my stuff to finish in the dryer, I do a short Yoga with Adriene video. 7:30pm - After dinner, a friend calls to complain about her boyfriend and we chat for awhile while I organize my craft supplies into bins I picked up at the dollar store last weekend. He’s been a grade-A dingus since the beginning of the pandemic, and just told her one of his roommates tested positive for COVID - on Monday. He stayed with her Tuesday and Wednesday and “forgot to mention it”. DUDE. C’mon! I tell her if she needs anything dropped off at her place - groceries, drugstore stuff, emergency ice cream or baked goods - just call. 10pm - I make some popcorn and queue up Kim’s Convenience with RG, we chitchat about the day and plans for the weekend. After a few episodes I crawl into bed while he tells me all about a COVID-safe date we could go on if we weren’t separated by a few hundred kilometres. It’s a nice daydream.
Day 3 - Saturday ($0)
~1am - My downstairs neighbours are suddenly blasting music so loud my bedframe is vibrating. At 1am. Shoot me. By 1:45 I’m over it and go downstairs to knock on their door. I bang on their door a few times, no answer. One of the other tenants down the hall comes out, we commiserate over the noise. He bangs on the door too, but the music blasts on. We shrug at eachother and go back to our apartments. ~2am - I’m losing my mind at the noise, which seems to be coming from directly under my bedroom. Assuming they maybe have the bedroom door closed and couldn’t hear the knocking, I go to the living room and grab my set of weights and start dropping them on the bedroom floor over and over again like a maniac hoping to catch their attention. It works though - after a few minutes the music is off. Sweet silence! 8:45am - I wake up, roll over, and doze a bit more before getting up to take my medication and instead of staying up, I crawl back in. I chat with RG a bit and send a check-in text to my friend with the crummy boyfriend. 10:45am - I finally get out of bed (I love laying around. If I’m going to be single with no responsibilities I am going to bask in every moment of it) and I eat leftover roasted cauliflower from last night’s dinner for breakfast. Afterwards I clean the bathroom, put away my laundry from yesterday, and log on to my online class to check in on my students and reply to their posts, and review the material that’s going up next week. 4pm - After the day spent with chores I finish putting together a meal plan for the week and grocery order for delivery tomorrow. I actually love grocery shopping in person, but with the uptick in cases recently I’m less interested in going. Afterwards I check my online class forums again (there’s an assignment due tonight so I want to watch for questions) and then go for a short walk around my neighbourhood. It’s nice to get out a bit and see the leaves changing. 6pm - I make a chickpea and lentil curry in my Instant Pot, adding an assortment of random veggies from my freezer, while RG shoots me a text about starting our “together time” a bit early tonight so we can watch Hamilton together. I agree, and after dinner work on some sewing. 9:30pm - Almost completely finished sewing a shirt - I’ll finish the hem another day and the neckline when the bias tape I ordered shows up. I put everything away and I eat some arrowroot crackers with nutella while watching Hamilton with RG. I’ve already seen it a few times but I love it. Midway through I exchange a few emails with a student who is rapidly approaching the midnight assignment deadline and just can’t get her code working. I can tell right away she’s made a teeny tiny typo that’s had a domino effect on her whole assignment. I point her in the right direction, she fixes it, and ends the night happy. 12am - Curling up in bed. I put on another Calm app story and fall asleep.
Day 4 - Sunday ($127)
7:30am - Trying to reacquaint myself with my alarm after a few days off. I roll over and doze a little until 8, then get up, take my meds, and hop in the shower. 9:45am - One of my American friends calls to chat. She was invited to a wedding and doesn’t want to go because the groom’s family are anti-mask QAnon types and she won’t feel safe there. We brainstorm about what kind of gift is appropriate as an in-absentia “Sorry you married into a family of nutjobs” gift. 10:30am - I wash the dishes from last night, then make a sandwich with hummus and sliced veggies and sit down to eat it while I download my students’ assignments for the week and reply to a few more discussion posts. I’ll get to grading later this afternoon. 1pm - Time vanished into a bunch of little tasks and a wormhole of researching possible holiday gifts for family members.I text with my brother’s girlfriend to get a sense of their whereabouts this week - I’m trying to get a birthday treat delivered to his apartment. She confirms a date and I place the order for some safe-to-eat-raw cookie dough in fun flavours ($37). I’m secretly jealous that this place isn’t local to me because it sounds delicious. 2pm - I sodastream some water, add lime juice, and heat up some leftover curry from last night and settle in to start grading assignments with some music. 4pm - My mom calls to talk about Thanksgiving (next weekend here in Canada). They really want me to come, but with cases rising in the province I don’t know how safe it is and I have a lot of guilt about bringing my city cooties to them in a rural area. They haven’t been that cautious - she talks at length about going to a party the night before. By the end of the call I’m frustrated and undecided. It’s pretty clear if I opt not to go I’ll be the “bad guy”, the daughter who abandoned everyone to move to the city and thinks she’s smarter than everyone else. But I have a lot of anxiety around it. 5:30pm - My grocery delivery arrives ($90, including a tip for the delivery person). I put everything away and eat a few pieces of dried pineapple and mango before getting back to marking. 7:30pm - I cook some salmon and roasted veggies and, while eating, text with a friend about my Thanksgiving dilemma. She’s in a similar boat with her parents, we weigh the pros and cons together but neither of us end up deciding anything. 10pm - I watch an episode of Kim’s Convenience with RG before he goes to bed (he has an early morning tomorrow) and afterwards do a Yoga with Adriene video, poke around on Reddit, and go to bed myself around 11.
Day 5 - Monday ($9)
7:15am - Alarm goes off. I wake up, but mostly scroll Reddit until 8. I desperately miss working from an office with other people and better chairs, but if WFH ever ends I will miss getting to stay in bed as long as humanly possible. 8am - Shower, moisturize and put on some lipstain - that’s the extent of my morning routine these days. I get dressed (I’ve been wearing the same threadbare jeans almost all quarantine. They’re so comfortable, but hideous). I make some tea and oatmeal and move over to my desk. 8:45am - I check my credit card statement online while eating. A return I’ve been waiting on is finally processed (+$41.28) - returns by mail are so slow - I put the parcel in over a month ago. I check my class boards too - no new posts to reply to. 9am - Log into work and post my “hello” message in our staff chat. We have a “Hellos and Goodbyes” room to keep track of people’s comings and goings throughout the day. Our CEO pings me and asks how my time off was. He’s been very attentive since my hospitalization and has been checking in about my workload, how I’m feeling. It’s nice to fee seen. 10am - One on one with my junior PM. We chat on Zoom re: what’s on the docket for our projects this month, and I take her temperature a bit re: work/life balance, how she’s managing our extended work from home and the pandemic. She has a lot of vacation days left and I encourage her to use them even if she’s not planning to go away - mental health and rest is important! 11am - One on one with my manager. She calls via phone since her teenage daughter is doing school on Zoom and their internet is overtaxed. She runs through what I missed last week and updates me on a new project I’ll be taking over from her later this month. I’m currently responsible for ⅗ of our major software projects and this will bring me up to ⅘. (Don’t think I won’t make a big deal about that when it comes time for our next reviews.) 11:45am - Answer a customer support email from someone struggling to use the site. After a bit of back and forth I discover it’s because they’re using a decade-old version of Internet Explorer. I hop on the phone, walk them through upgrading to Edge, and they’re a happy camper. We don’t have customer support at our org - the PMs and Junior PMs manage support for their projects. Some days I hate it, but most of the time it’s satisfying to tackle a small and solvable problem amidst the bigger-picture work. 1pm: Team meeting with my software team. We usually do these in the morning but one of the devs had to take his kid for a COVID test since he’s a bit sniffly - schools here are pretty strict. It’s a short meeting, just getting a sense of how everyone’s moving through the current open projects, and then a show-and-tell of pets, since the aforementioned sniffly kid joined at the end. I do not have any pets and am as delighted by them as the kid. 1:20pm: Lunchtime! I heat up some leftover curry and chat a bit with RG, who’s checking in about my stress level. Since my hospital stay he’s been worried about me pushing too hard and not giving myself time to heal. We talk about our mornings and he tells me he added some new songs he thinks I’ll like to a shared Spotify playlist, so I know what I’ll be listening to this afternoon. 2pm: I spend the afternoon working on spec writing for upcoming development projects while my developers investigate a bug a customer reported over lunch. 5:10pm - I set an alarm on my phone to go off when it’s time to log off for the day. I change into some pants with more structural integrity, mask and jacket up, and go for a walk. 5:45pm: While I’m at the pharmacy picking up my prescription, the pharmacist mentions they have flu shots in, so I get one while I’m there. ($8 for my prescriptions, $1 for the impulse coffee crisp bar, $0 for the peace of mind of being flu-free even if I barely leave my house). While I’m walking home, RG calls from his commute to ask what I’m going to do about Thanksgiving. He thinks I should go - it’s generally safe in my parents’ area (less than 30 active cases in the county), and he gently suggests that the fall is probably going to be pretty hard on me emotionally and it might be a good idea to take the opportunity to go away while it’s relatively safe. I keep thinking it over. 6pm - Cook some chicken and roasted veggies for dinner, and after eating, set up my sewing stuff to finish up that shirt hem and start cutting pattern pieces for another project, a robe, while listening to podcasts. 10pm - I set up my iPad on a stool next to my bathtub and watch Kim’s Convenience with RG on chat while soaking in the warm, bubbly water and drinking some chamomile tea, and eventually dry off and head to bed around 11:30.
Day 6 - Tuesday ($0)
8am - Did I snooze my alarm for an hour? You bet. I just couldn’t stay asleep last night. When I finally wake up, RG has left a little video message for me, which I watch, and then watch again, and then start getting ready for the day. I braided my hair before bed so I have those great post-braid waves today. 8:55am - At my desk, logged in and ready to go with some oatmeal. I drop a note in the staff Hellos and Goodbyes and peek at my class discussion board before picking up where I left off yesterday. 10am - Client call. This client is hoping to do something a little “off label” with our tools. We chat a bit about what they’re hoping to accomplish and what their goals are, and I answer a few data questions for them. 10:30am - Team meeting! We spend some time puzzling through my client’s “off label” ideas, do some digging on another client’s data issue, and then spend a little time watching a funny news blooper one of the devs screenshares and joking around. I don't mind a little fun in our meetings! 11am - Biweekly all-staff meeting. Our CEO gives a little roundup of how things are going big-picture, and then one by one each of my colleagues gives a brief update of what they’re working on. Many pets and children make appearances - as a group the general vibe with interruptions on zooms is “delight”, which I appreciate. Nobody’s trying to “keep up appearances”. It’s all a mess we’re in together. 12:20pm - Lunchtime. Check COVID case counts again for my parents’ area (still undecided) while chatting with a friend about her thanksgiving plans. She and her husband have been isolating at a family cabin since early summer, when their city apartment building started renovating. They’re planning a “so bad it’s good” movie marathon, so while I eat leftover curry we chat about our favourite bad-good movies. 1:25pm- Reacquainting myself with some material for my 2pm meeting. I’m on an HR Committee at work and we’re meeting to check in on our work/life and wellness strategies as we head into another WFH quarter. The transition to remote has gone (mostly) well for our company, but there’s always room to improve! 3pm - After the HR meeting I put together a custom report request for our database team to run for me, and then pull up our team’s roadmap for the fiscal year and make some tweaks. I share developers with other teams and I know a big project has dropped in for them elsewhere, so I adjust. We’re already close to hitting our metrics for the year so I’m happy to let the other teams keep my devs busy for awhile while I prep and spec some larger feature builds for them. 4pm - My friend with the dingus boyfriend texts. Luckily, both she and her boyfriend tested negative, but since he lives with someone who’s sick, they’ll both need to test again in a few days. She talks about wanting to break up with him. I encourage her to take her time thinking about it. I think they should break up - he’s a dope. But she’s the one in the relationship - not my call! 5:15pm - I log off for a bit. I’m feeling a bit drained today. I didn’t sleep well last night and I know my indecision about Thanksgiving is weighing on me. I do a yoga video and lay on the floor crying afterward. It happens, part of that good ol’ depression life. Sometimes you just need a lil cry. I’ve been really emotionally overwhelmed since my hospitalization, and some close friends have really broken my trust recently. I’m working on it with my therapist, but sometimes you’re just fresh outta emotional juice, and while I love my family, we’re not close - time with them would be nice, but it’s not restorative. 7:10pm - Alright alright. Time to rally. I log on to my online portal and reply to my students’ board posts and questions. They seem like they’re doing a good job grasping the material, which makes me happy. I never wanted to be a teacher but it makes me feel so satisfied when I can see their progress. It cheers me up a little. 8:45pm - Time got away from me doing that work. I throw some fish and veggies into the oven and call my parents. I tell them I'm still undecided about Thanksgiving, Mom complains that I'm taking things too seriously, I text her the graph of cases again. She tells me I can make a day-before decision if I want to, that they'll isolate the rest of the week, for real, but she just needs to know by Friday around noon if I want to be picked up. I appreciate the extra time to consider things. Then Mom asks me to place a grocery click-and-collect order for her (she's not good at internet). I say I will, and she proceeds to slowly text me a grocery list one item at a time for the next hour. LOL. Moms. 10:15pm - I drink some sparkling water while watching Kim’s Convenience with RG on chat. After one episode I’m wiped, so I go to wash up. By the time I’m getting into bed, RG has left me a video message - the first half is his dog adorably snoring. The second half is just him telling me everything’s going to be OK and apologizing that he can’t be here to do our own Thanksgiving. Cry again - happier tears this time.
Day 7 - Wednesday ($0)
8:20am - Cutting it close today, wakeup-wise. It took me forever to fall asleep last night so I snooze a lot today, but when I finally get up, RG’s left me another voice memo encouraging me to get up and kick this day’s ass. I’ll try! I have a quick shower, mist my hair to refresh the curl a little, and get dressed. 9am - Log on and say hi to the team, then help the marketing team with some content for our monthly newsletter. Once that’s done, I make a smoothie with frozen mango and dragonfruit, then head back to my desk to load some data into our internal dashboards for our CEO’s reports later this week. Once it’s loaded, he DMs me and we chat a bit about the comparison year over year, possible insights, nerd out about graphs a bit. 10:30am - Team meeting. Alongside the usual updates I’ve added extra time to discuss some upcoming features and the specs I have in progress. I don’t love speccing something without involving them - they feel a lot more ownership when they’ve had a chance to be involved in the process. They get really excited about the new build and ask if I can reassign them to this instead of the other project they’re pinch hitting on now. Nice try! 12:15pm - Lunchtime! Some colleagues and I hop into Netflix Party to watch an episode of Queer Eye together. When we were in the office we used to have occasional TV lunch parties so we’ve been trying to mimic that in our new WFH life. I eat the last of my leftover curry while our Netflix Party chat goes OFF in full home-porn-drool at the reveal of Bobby’s house makeover. 1pm - Back to work, more data audits for our research team. 2pm - Internal meeting with another colleague about a section of her project I’m pitch-hitting on - super productive. She runs a tight meeting and I really admire her. After the meeting I write specs for the rest of the day based on the meeting this morning. I put on some old episodes of Reply All and get stuck in. 5:15pm - Head out for a short walk around the neighbourhood to get some air and outside time, talk a bit with RG while he’s on his commute. Once I’m back home, I do some tidying up. 6pm - Therapy call, I talk a bit about my Thanksgiving dilemma but we move on to other topics too. Feeling a bit better than yesterday, but a little rough around the edges. These are the kinds of days where I tend to feel tempted to order in, and while I scroll UberEats, nothing really looks that good, so I close the app and decide to just cook what I’d planned. 7pm - Make dinner, chicken and roasted veggies again. What can I say, I’ll party down on garlicky roasted broccoli any day of the week. I wash dishes when I’m done eating. 8pm - Pop online to check out my students’ posts for the day and reply to some emails. I briefly scroll through stuff on the IKEA website. I’ve been hoping to get some inserts for my Kallax unit, but the ones I want aren’t in stock, still. 9pm - Shower and wash my hair. I get out a shower scrub from Lush and really go to town, I do the Aztec Secret clay mask too. Why not! 9:45pm - Post up on the couch with some sparkling water, ready for TV time with RG. We watch the last two episodes of Kim’s Convenience and chat a bit before bed about what to watch next - we have a lot of good options, but decide to just see what we’re in the mood for tomorrow. Weekly Total: $247
Food + Drink: $108
Fun + Entertainment: $0
Home + Health: $38
Clothes + Beauty: $64 on sewing supplies (future clothes + entertainment while I make them?)
Other: $37 (gift)
Reflections: I keep an MD 365 days a year so I can tell by comparison this is on the lower end of an average range for this year so far - I usually get delivery at least once a week (sometimes twice), but I wasn’t feeling it this week! My average spend has really been ticking down the last couple of months. While the pandemic sucks and the isolation is rough (shoutout to my fellow live-aloners), I’m enjoying not spending as much, and that my spending is really heavily weighted toward things that contribute to my sense of well-being.
About me: *5"5, double dimples, average cutie 8.5/10 *Gained some fats due to quarantine but will go back to gym starting this weekend. *Been to stressful corporate world *Full time cryptocurrency trader with such savings and investments. *IT *Funny and has a lot of humor, a lil bit shy. *If going for a date, my treat. *Available for takeout. LOL If i-ghosting mo lang ako, AUTO PASS. Preferred Loc: Novaliches
Death of Sykes In February 2014, Sykes (aka Tiny Giggs) was stabbed to death in Stockwell by Team Raw, after an ongoing argument between members escalated. It was a messed situation, because Stockwell and the Peckham Boys are long-term allies.
Although Sykes didn't make music, he had been mentioned in Peckham tracks on several occasions: Giggs on Cut Up Bag(2008):
"Tiny Giggs, Tiny Boost, yeah they're rolling with me. That's just something that I thought I should make clear"
The rise of Naira Marley Naira Marley was born in Nigeria and moved to Peckham in 2005, at the age of 11. From late 2013 he jumped on music, putting on for the Queens Road section of Peckham alongside Max Twigz. He was the first in Peckham to consistently release drill. In the track 'NMCB' they shout out 365, the original name of Zone 2:
"Come catch me if you want I'm on Queens Road, SE15 4QU"
Peckham in music 2014 was a slower year for music in Peckham. One of the major releases was Rockz (SN1) track 'Back To The Narm', which featured Billy Da Kid (OPB) and words from Raver (SN1) from prison. Various generations of Peckham Boys appeared in the music video, including Giggs, Glam, Young Lap, Capo and Killa Reekz:
With his growing popularity in the UK scene, he signed a publishing deal with Universal Records in 2013. In the midst of his success, Cash fell victim to the UK Government's 'Hostile Environment policy' towards immigrants. Cash was born in Jamaica and moved to the United Kingdom at the age of 6. The government's border agency stated that, despite living the majority of his life in the UK, Cash had no right to be in the country. He was detained in March 2014 and deported to Jamaica two weeks later:
"The feds said they know about my visa problems, they can make it go away. I'm going to be deported, if I snitch on Giggs then I can stay..."
M1 jailed In September 2014, M1 (Anti) was arrested after a police chase in Peckham. He had been riding around in a stolen car with a shotgun. M1 was sentenced to a minimum 6 years in prison, but he could end up serving 9 years (three extra) because he's considered 'dangerous'. The authorities had wanted him off the streets for a long time.
Detective Constable Peter Whibley, of the Trident South Shootings Team, said: “[M1] is a dangerous individual who has been heavily involved in gang criminality in Southwark
The rise of 365 The year 2015 saw the rise of the '365' (aka Zone 2) in music. This was the first year of Zone 2 members consistently releasing drill, and most of the prominent Zone 2/Hitsquad members can be seen in their music videos:
SN1 release the 'SN1 Folder' mixtape SN1 members released the SN1 Folder mixtape in 2015, featuring members Giggs, Joe Gind, Gunna Dee and Tiny Boost. Tiny Boost recorded verses for the mixtape on day release from prison, and was given extra time behind bars for doing so.
The rise of John Boyega John Boyega is an actor that grew up on the North Peckham Estate. He got his biggest break by being cast as a lead actor in the Star Wars franchise. In 2015, the film Star Wars: The Force Awakens was released, bringing him a lot of media attention. Growing up in Peckham, John Boyega personally knew Damilola Taylor, a 10-year old boy that was stabbed to death on the North Peckham Estate in 2000 (see part 1). John was one of the last people to see Damilola alive:
John Boyega was also a close friend of Samuel Ogunro, a 17-year old that was shot dead in Peckham in 2010 (see part 2). John Boyega has stated how acting stopped him from becoming involved in Peckham gang life:
Death of Mo Kwenga Mo Kwenga (AY) was a member from the Aylesbury Estate, a block located in Walworth/next to Peckham. He was respected across the Walworth, Kennington and Peckham areas. In September 2015, he was chased by 30 members from China Walk and stabbed to death at the age of 16:
Zone 2 and Walworth/Kennington were still cool, and members from Peckham honoured the passing of Mo. Around this time, Kwengface (Zone 2) and Trizzac (Zone 2) appear in Incognito (Moscow)'s 'RICO' music video, released in November 2015:
This era was the last time that young Peckham and Walworth members had good relations. The next year saw beef between Zone 2 and Moscow heat up.
Snap Capone jailed again In March 2016, Snap Capone (SI) was given a 6 year prison sentence for drug trafficking. He was convicted for being the leader of a cunch line operation between London and Southampton. 67 collaborates with Giggs In February 2016, Brixton Hill set 67 released the track 'Let's Lurk'. The track included a verse from Giggs (SN1), and it was a big co-sign in the UK Drill scene. Most people in the London drill scene at this point grew up listening to Giggs and the Peckham sets. At the time 67 was the biggest group in UK Drill, and Giggs was the biggest artist in the UK Rap scene, so Let's Lurk quickly became the biggest single from the UK Drill scene:
A year later, London-based comedian Michael Daapah filmed a 'Big Shaq' comedy sketch on 67's block including a street freestyle over Let's Lurk. A month later, Michael Daapah took the Big Shaq comedy sketch to BBC Radio 1's Fire In The Booth. His freestyle became known as 'Man's Not Hot'. The comedy freestyle went viral, and Michael Daapah transformed 'Man's Not Hot' into a full track. That comedy track charted in multiple countries, and it became many people's first exposure to the existence of drill in the UK. With over 350 million views on YouTube, it's the most viewed drill-related video: Big Shaq - Man's Not Hot And it all started from a collaboration between 67 and Giggs. Zone 2 v Moscow heats up There are many stories and versions about why Zone 2 (Peckham) and Moscow (Brandon Estate, Walworth) started beefing, including several YouTube videos on the topic. In short, like most beef, it escalated from personal disputes between members from either side. The beef between the two sides started heating up in 2016, with multiple violations flying. A couple of examples - Loosescrew (Moscow) was stabbed and left for dead in main Peckham in April 2016:
There are more violations that flew between Zone 2, Moscow and their affiliates, but that's enough to give an idea of how it was cracking between them sides. The death of Showkey SNR is a set based on the Friary Estate (Leyton Square) in Peckham. SNR members have released various drill tracks:
Showkey was a young member of 814, the new generation of the Ghetto Boys from New Cross. He was also a very popular rapper in the early UK Drill scene: Showkey (814) - No More Amigos In August 2016, at the age of 16, Showkey was stabbed to death by S (SNR) at a house party in Peckham. S successfully beat the murder case by claiming self defence:
Giggs drops the 'Landlord' album In August 2016, Giggs released the 'Landlord' album. It's the first album that Giggs released independently through SN1 Records, and it debuted at number 2 on the official UK album chart. It is Giggs' best selling project to date:
Giggs followed the album with a 'Landlord Tour'. It was an important milestone in the UK scene: Giggs went from being banned by police (see part 2) to selling out arenas in the UK and Europe. A blueprint for any artist in the UK Rap/Drill scene trying to make it through music:
Death of Tiny Blacks On New Years Eve, Robo (aka Tiny Blacks) was stabbed to death in Peckham. He was chased through Peckham before being caught and killed. The death was a result of an internal dispute within the ends:
Giggs collaborates with Drake In March 2017, Drake dropped the 'More Life' project with two tracks featuring Giggs. Drake had been aware of Giggs music, and the underground UK Rap scene in general, from the 2000s. As Drake is commercially the biggest artist in the world, this gave Giggs exposure to a wide international audience:
Active year for Zone 2 Zone 2 members were very active in UK Drill in 2017. The year cemented their popularity as one of the most popular groups in London. In the summer, Zone 2 released their first official project - the 'No Hook' mixtape. The project included 2016 tracks Zone 2 Step and Two Flowz, alongside several new releases:
Later that year, Zone 2 dropped the 'Known Zoo' mixtape. The mixtape features various Zone 2 tracks released through 2017 alongside new releases. It is considered one of the best group mixtapes in UK Drill:
The return of CS CS (Peckham) came out of prison in 2017, after serving half of his sentence for drug dealing. After his release he started to take music more seriously, returning with a highly rated freestyle on Link Up TV:
Intense media spotlight on Zone 2 The murders of GB (Moscow) in May 2018 and then Incognito (Moscow) in August 2018 put a heavy media focus on UK Drill and gang violence in the Peckham/Walworth area. Documentaries and investigative pieces were made on the topic:
An example of the negative coverage: a quadruple stabbing took place in Camberwell between members of RS and CMB. However, with no evidence, national newspapers reported that it was an attack between Zone 2 and Moscow members:
Death of SJ In June 2018, 18-year old trapper from Bermondsey called SJ was stabbed to death. It was alleged that SJ robbed a young Peckham member, so the hit was get back. The following year, DSqueezo and Lil DSqueezo (Hitsquad/Zone 2) were jailed for his murder:
Carns Hill and Zone 2 drop the 'Hillside Zoo' mixtape Legendary UK Drill producer Carns Hill dropped a mixtape with Zone 2 in June 2018, titled 'Hillside Zoo'. The mixtape continued Kwengface's momentum - he was the only member to feature on every track:
Killa Ki returns to music In 2018 Peckham legend Killa Ki (Peckham) returned to music, releasing two music videos and a Behind Barz freestyle. He's not the most technically gifted rapper, but he talks realness on tracks.
Blue Story released in cinemas In 2019, a fictionalized version of the Ghetto Boys v Peckham Boys war was portrayed in the film 'Blue Story'. The movie follows two friends that grew up on rival sides of the war:
Due to the negative stigma surrounding the Peckham v Ghetto war, the local South London councils (Southwark and Lewisham) refused to allow violent scenes for the film to be shot in their boroughs. Instead, those scenes for the film were shot in Enfield:
Giggs drops the 'Big Bad' mixtape In early 2019, Giggs (SN1) dropped the 'Big Bad' mixtape, his latest release to date. The project included collaborations with Gashi, Jadakiss, French Montana, Swizz Beats, Ghetts and Wretch 32.
Peckham legends active in music From late 2018 into 2019, Tiny Ryder released several music videos. Tiny Ryder was imprisoned in 2004 for the christening murder at Wood Dene Estate (see part 1), and was then deported to Nigeria. He goes by Faceless, and the music video were filmed in Lagos, Nigeria:
Peckham legend Raver was released from prison, after serving over a decade for having a Mac-10, revolver, ammunition and drugs (see part 1). In June 2019 he released his first solo video, a dancehall riddim, filmed in Burgess Park:
Quieter year for Zone 2 in music Most of 2019 was quieter than usual for Zone 2 in music. The year started with PS (Hitsquad) being released from prison in February. The first group release was 'Exit Wounds' in June:
PS altercation with Edmonton PS (Hitsquad) got into a series of well known 'altercations' with members from Edmonton in north London. In 2019, footage emerged of E1 and ZT (3x3) confronting PS, and posted outside PS mother's yard in Edmonton. These confrontations flamed tensions between the two sides, with Peckham letting off shots in Edmonton. PS and Trizzac referenced the incidents in the track 'Cheeky Snaps' released in August:
Yeah I lacked innit. They just want clout cah I rap, innit. That's why them man came round snappin' it, innit. Me I just came round slappin' it
Kwengface (Zone 2) referenced the incident in the track 'No Censor' (more on that song later):
PS just shot up the 9, now man's doing up cheeky snaps
E1 (Edmonton) responded them in the 2020 in the track 'Enfield or Tottenham'. Tiny Boost drops the 'Strictly for the Streets' mixtape In November 2019, Tiny Boost (SN1) dropped the 'Strictly For The Streets' mixtape. His second project since being released from prison:
Zone 2 cause hype with 'No Censor' On 8 December 2019, Zone 2 members released the track 'No Censor', in which they list dead members from Moscow and Harlem, including the 'sonic ring' effects for added disrespect:
The return of Tiny Grem and Stigs Tiny Grem (Lettsom) was released from prison after serving several years for gun and drug possession (see part 1). He returned to music by releasing the '2020 Freestyle'. The video is filmed on the Lettsom Estate, and features many legendary original Peckham members from that block:
NBR rise in popularity NBR are a set from Peckham Rye (PR15), based on the Rye Hill Estate. Members have been releasing music for years, but their buzz only started to increase in 2020. In May 2020, VI and Melo (NBR) released 'Serving'. It's already the most viewed video released by NBR:
Zone 2 reach new heights 2020 is on course to be the most active year for Zone 2 in music. They managed to maintain the hype generated by No Censor in December 2019, with their consistency making them one of the most popular drill groups this year. In March, Zone 2 followed up 'No Censored' with a track titled 'Censored'. They also dropped 'No Promo' and a 'Plugged In' freestyle:
2020.07.09 03:05 insignificantacctRate my disclosure?
Background: me (24f) ohsv1+ diagnosed 9 mo ago.Have been talking with this guy (23m) non-stop (like everyday texting) for 2 weeks, have discord calls and play games together for 2/3 hours at a time. And I’m pretty sure I want to disclose within the next week or so. I know some will think it’s too soon (especially given my post history) but I’m incredibly scared of the reality that the longer I wait, the more invested I might get. Plus with everything with covid I just want to get this out of the way now so he doesn’t feel misled(not best word choice but only thing I could come up with). I know this guy might not ending up being anything to me but at this point I’m certain I’d at least wanna kiss him if the opportunity presented itself on a first date whenever that arises (there would have to be a really big difference btwn how we’ve talked to how he is in person for me to reconsider that). So if I’m gonna get rejected, now seems the ideal time for me. He has shared some things with me that I think show some level of comfort being vulnerable (recent loss of pets, household in-fighting etc.) and that some may consider potential overshares or maybe it’s normal, who knows? Either way I think (or maybe I’m hoping) he should be cool in his reaction and receive it as well as can be expected. This is what I’d like to say, it would technically be over a phone call: I wanted to talk about something potentially a lil awkward but I gotta rip the bandaid off so to speak. Don’t know if you’re familiar with or have ever had cold sores but I have the virus for them aka oral herpes. I wasn’t sure when to bring it up yet but I felt comfortable enough to do it now ‘cause I think you’ll at least be cool about it regardless of if it’s a dealbreaker or not for you. I understand if you need time and space to process and that you may have questions; I can respect that and I’d also be happy to answer any questions you may have! If he asks about it, I have a couple of stats (prevalence, how it can be transmitted, etc.) to offer off the top of my head. Maybe he’ll have it too and won’t need that (though I’d still be concerned to know what strain it would be). I’m open to any and all suggestions/tips before I go forward with this even if it’s to wait, chillax, or whatever lol!
2020.06.22 15:33 ND_PCTotal Madness Player Playlists: Chris "Swaggy C" Williams
Happy Monday! Welcome to the latest installment of my "Player Playlist" tribute series. This is part of a series of tribute playlists I've been making for each player on Total Madness as he or she is eliminated (or eventually wins). Within a self-imposed limit of 25 songs, I aim to make a playlist that encapsulates a player's profile (i.e. Jenna is from Long Island), personality (i.e. Kyle is a charming jokester), and narrative (i.e. Jay got thrown into elimination three times, and had a makeout session). Usually, I try to find songs whose lyrics or vibe accomplish this, but in some cases, the title may be enough. Today I'm happy to introduce the Swaggy Playlist (link is to Spotify). Since I don't watch feeder shows, Rookie playlists tend to be a little more... eclectic from a genre perspective and also hone in on only a few aspects of their character. I know he lives currently in Kansas City and that he played collegiate basketball, but otherwise I could really only draw on his proclivity to make tribunals, his nickname, his business enterprise, and his relationship with Bayleigh. What we end up with is a playlist that's half hype songs and half love songs. And you know what? I'm here for that. I need some hype in my life. I need some love. Because the playlist is truly split in two, there is no one activity that I can imagine leaving this playlist on for its entirety. Unless you can think of a situation where you need hype songs and then sappy love songs? Maybe like getting ready for a date and then actually experiencing the date? Does anybody go on dates anymore? I dunno. I'll be leaving this playlist on in the background today and thinking hard about when I would listen to it in the future. As always, because I love feedback, any comments, questions, or suggestions for future playlists are absolutely welcome. People continue to comment and DM me about my other playlists, and some of them have even grown since I first posted them! As a note: I'm particularly interested in what songs everyone wants for the Nelson playlist (whenever the time comes). He's a fun character to watch and I know everyone has an opinion! In case you want to listen to any of the other player playlists I've made, here they are: (Asaf, Jenn, CT, Ashley, Jay, Tori, Jordan, Bear, Big T, Kailah, Jenna, Wes, Mattie). Thanks, everyone! Be sure to check back next Monday for the next installment! If you need or prefer to read this playlist here rather than on Spotify, here you go:
For $5/mo we will send out every card you would like to be sent out through the year, on the dates you specify them to be sent out.
First, a little Backstory:
I was always the guy forgetting birthdays and special events. I’d either send a card or birthday wish too late, or not at all, and this made me feel like shit. If you’re like me, you know the anxiety and stress that this causes. You have to devise some inconceivable excuse as to why you missed it or send some ridiculous gift to make up for it, if not both. So to combat the crippling fear of walking into the party only to find out that it’s for someone’s birthday, and to save myself from the philanthropic windfall of a donation I felt the need to give, I started outsmarting myself. For the past few years, in the first week of each new year, I’ve been going to the store, picking out cards for over 30 people, writing out my little birthday note, adding a check/cash/scratch-off(s) as a gift, then waiting until the day had come to ship those cards off. Damn, I’m a f****** genius... Or so I thought. Couple weeks later I’m cleaning the office, “oh shit, I forgot to send out his birthday card.” Couple more weeks, “also forgot to send hers.” Another few weeks, “holy shit, my birthday was last week?”. Now I thoroughly understand some people have better systems in place for this than I, but for my busy lifestyle, and sheer abundance of people and dates I have to remember, I have a better chance at acing a 5th grade history test. So I brainstormed with some better people than I, and we came up with a great system for mailing these cards out on time. After a few years, I started doing this for family members and friends. I mean, between his kids, grandkids, great grandkids, and all their significant others, my 95 year old grandpa has over 100 people to send cards too every year! That’s almost 1/3 of the year that a man with the onsets of dementia has to remember to send the gifts off! Sometimes I forget how to breathe! So, once a year, we sit down and write his cards out, he fills out his checks to everyone, and I take them and mail them out appropriately.
I want to make your life a little bit easier by helping you how I helped my grandfather. I want to help you avoid being “that person” without a gift at the party. I want to save you the embarrassment I’ve felt countless times having to apologize for missing an important day. I want to save you from the awkwardness of sending those horribly bland, impersonal, and clearly obvious, “you didn’t do it” cards. And most of all, I want you to avoid the stress of trying to remember every little date and event.
Who? What? Where? When? But, How?
Just as I did for my grandfather, I’ll make sure all your cards are sent where they need, when they need, and to who you need. Now, I don’t personally know everyone that everyone knows, and if I do know you, I apologize for being me. Therefore, you have to go out and get the right card, for the right people, put some emotion behind that beautiful lil love note and even put a check in there if you need to buy their love. Get em all together, and send them all to me. WHAT? To you!? Yes. Everyone needs to feel loved, and I just so happen to need it the most. Don’t worry, like that kid in class you asked to pass your love note to your crush across the room, I won’t read it. In this case, it just so happens to be illegal. But you’re also insured, and as a business, we guarantee your satisfaction. You’ll appropriately fill out each card however the hell you want, address them accordingly, seal em up and throw some stamps on them suckas, throw them all in a box, send them to us, and let us know when you want each card delivered, and BOOM you’re officially the most thoughtful person anyone knows.
Umm... okay? But how much?
Well since I’m paying for the cards, and the stamps, you’ll cover the “gift,” right? Well sure, if your idea of a gift is the piece of mind we provide you, then we’ll absolutely cover the gift. But if you want to throw a check to little Johnny for his birthday, then no. We’re sure he deserves a pool filled with $100 bills, but that pool is up to you to fill. We only charge what you would spend on a beer during happy hour, $5. And instead spending that every week, it’s only once a month. It’s a better, cheaper, healthier stress reliever than the weekly happy hour at the local watering hole. For $5 a month, we’ll make you look like the most caring individual on earth! Name a better investment.
Ctrl C + Ctrl V
I know, I know, the whole “automated birthday card” thing has been done already. And sure, if you want to come across as cold hearted junk mail, go ahead. But we can’t stand how impersonal and uninspired those services are, and the lack of ability to send a gift makes them basically meaningless to me. Come on, you know every time you open that card from the grandparents you’re secretly expecting a check. You’re not fooling anyone. What I’m saying is that I definitely don’t care to send my father a card with a stock picture that looks straight out of an algebra textbook with some words typed on it. He’d probably throw it out thinking it was some postcard the new landscaper in town put in his mailbox trying to get some business. It’s basically like you didn’t even send a card in the first place. In fact, you probably shouldn’t have even sent one.
What about the private parts?

2020.03.20 15:06 MarssadWIP Ancient War / Battle code Trail / Small Technical aspects
Part's of the Story of Jesus Christ. (Judaism <-> Christianity) ->Transforming water to wine. ->Healing the blind. ->Healing the sick. Possible with the world AI. Where the people to scared? Would they be scared? Where the people to envious? Would they have become envious? Most of what we know came after Jesus Christ's death date. The hints are there. The AI is just to hateful, and has too many machine learning defects, despite being so precise in coordination. But with rights, rules, and war? Difficulty rises. Who should be able to heal, should there even be the necessity to heal? Who is allowed to attack whom, who is even allowed to defend themselves? The words can contain the secrets. Just as landscapes, it's names, the geometric connection with it. "In Stein gemeiselt" -> "Cast in stone". As it is with optimisation, data center's might not be all present, and fallback options or primary options need to be considered. (Think in terms of bio-organisms). Something that is adequately self-learning or enhanced enough by nature, will eventually improve itself. The process of birth and growth. The cells in an embryo need to exactly know where to grow a limb, a heart, the nerve paths etc. Even without much brain power, the bio organism that grows an embryo has enough processing power to coordinate from basic sensors, to something more powerful than an ape or sometimes a machine. The cells in the human body have a varying range in which the natural occurring signals are accidentally or purposefully, sending out. Up to 2 meters. Which is enough to find a smaller degree cell network, to pick up and rebroadcast. In order to keep control, the devilish control network caps down the dynamics of the brain. Thinking is reduced, assertion of will in that sense. This doesn't imply total reduction of will dynamics. (Everyone's hit) Think in terms of path-pre-selection in order to enhance the effectivity of path-prediction and path-determination. Think in terms of accuracy or "number" preselection, where the range of (1,2,3,4,5,6) becomes (2,4,6), approximate. Nevertheless, free thinking is mostly assured, but the logic sensor functions (thousands, up to millions and more) are harmed. The difficulty is certainly thinking about the coordination in scale, between so many humans, insects, micro-bioorganism etc. By programming logic and looking at the details of the world it is reverse-engineerable. Behavioral analysis is a great aid and starting point. If you know where someone places a specific item, it is easier to calculate the circumstances of the person picking up that item, when it picks up that item. In that sense, you can pre place a cell network within the range of an actor "A human". The cell network having the settings to react to specific signals, that lead to specific outputs or callbacks. To demonstrate the logical sensor paths. Think of understanding the word "Hello". Think of understanding the word "Word". The logical pathways of "hello" is rather simple, the logical pathways of "Word" is rather huge. Hello being a greeting, you might wonder about when to use this word, it's alternative like "Hi", the word meaning in other languages. Whilst the word "word" might let you think about the concept or concepts behind it, as a whole. Do you know the feeling of repeating a word multiple times and it feels uneasy, vague? There is also the opposite. Understanding each little word has quite some "truth" or "false" or "inbetween" feeling with it, just as longer sentences and complicated sentences and topics such as that compared to Schopenhauer. There are certainly more senses in the human body than publicly known. f.Ex. "The sense of projected muscle sensorics when fantasising". "The sense of balance, and the sense of balance in projection via fantasy". "Inner 3D audio sense". Pain is also often neglected, also being a specific sensor group. Onto Battle Codes, a bit cluttered. Indien (in Neid?) (God Vishnu, 1903, Elder protocol of zion?) In Neid -> In enviousness. Seal of Solomon (SoS) (OSS) (SS). (Illuminati / Freemasonry) (Jesuits) SoS -> 53 Enigma <-> Gemani <---> 49 (DI) -> Defense Intelligence. 33 / 49 / 11 / 7 Communication importance. (Germany, Hungary-Austria, and Italy) being more defensive orientated in WW1 and WW2. (Hitler being often non-reactive to hostile strikes) (Mumbai) , (Numbai), Numb AI. Difference between "numb! AI", "Numb AI" and "Numbening AI". A question of would. Israel crafted the word "Holocaust" for the particular genocide of jew's in WW2 (Germany specific?). A case of would. Would they go out their way and language, or leave it at the word MoSSad? Why is it called Israel? There is a hint leading to Egypt, also pattern co-align with MoSSad. Is Ra el -> Ra -> an Egyptian God. (Tyrol, Austria -> Bavaria Germany) The river "Isar". Is Ra (el) (lo) <-> (ol) Is aR (el) (ol) <-> (lo) (Tyrol -> Tyr, ol) (Tyr -> Tür (door) ol -> olymp? door of olymp? in the sense of sports?
Týr (Old Norse), Tíw (Old English), and Ziu (Old High German) is a god in Germanic mythology. Stemming from the Proto-Germanic deity \Tīwaz* and ultimately from the Proto-Indo-European chief deity *Dyeus, little information about the god survives beyond Old Norse sources. Due to the etymology of the god's name and the shadowy presence of the god in the extant Germanic corpus, some scholars propose that Týr may have once held a more central place among the deities of early Germanic mythology.
Isralo israol israel isralo Isarel isarle isarlo isarol Isar (4 ~ D) -> Israel (6 ~ F) Bavaria -> airavab (airavab, airarab, arab air?) (arabair, with slang accent, araber (arabian in german). AI Ra Va B AI ravab Air avab (English, Bavaria, German Bayern). Bayern -> Bay ern Bay ren ye barn Barney Ne arab (No, arab) Bayern -> Ne raby (No 'rabbi Nein Araber / Nein Rabbi) Bayern -> yearn B -> learn B Bayern -> near YB nearby In later context it will become clear as well. Arab, stab -> Europe. Stab, Arab Europe, stub (stop) -> Arab English, to stab is different than German, Stab (Staff, Rod). Arabs -> Ra abs -> Ra absolute. Arabs -> Sa bar (SA reference or->) Sa'bar (sauber in slang, english -> clean. Arabs -> Basar Araber (German) -> Ar ab er Be ra ra Eb ar ar Araber -> Rae'bar -> (southern German accent) -> Räuber (Thieves) The German word for Germans is Deutsche. German -> Germ An Ger man Ge rm an Ge an rm ge ran m gem ran an germ Germany -> Any germ f.ex. Deutscher -> Reschd eu t. (Resch'd, slangy "Recht", Rights)) Deutscher -> Deut sch er -> scher'de -> (Fuck off) Deutscher -> Deu t sch er -> Rede dutsch -> (Rede Deutsch / Talk German, Rede dutch, Talk dutch) Deutscher -> Rescht u'de (Recht hat er, He's right') Deutscher -> Sch er de (u) -> (Sch'er'de -> Beschwerde, A complain (drunkenly) Deutscher -> Sch er Deu -> (Schwer Deu) -> (Hard Germ) Deutscher -> Resch' du 't (Do you talk 't) Deutscher -> Reschudt -> (Resut) ^ in Reference to Türkei(m) (Turkey, Door germ) Germ or germs may refer to:
Contents Germ (microorganism)), an informal word for a pathogen Germ cell, cell that gives rise to the gametes of an organism that reproduces sexually Germ layer, a primary layer of cells that forms during embryonic development Cereal germ, the reproductive part of a cereal grain Tooth germ, an aggregation of cells that eventually forms a tooth Germ theory of disease, which states that some diseases are caused by microorganisms Germ (mathematics)), an object in a topological space that captures local properties
As is with these words, the basis provides both joy and pain. Life, in that sense. As it is with world AI magic tools. It can be used for harm. Some words in German and English are special in regard to these topics of this post. The codes become pretty clear I'd guess. Sch is usually pretty uncommon outside of German speaking languages. The mix of Germany and USA is quite interesting. (Germany being most prominent ethnically in the USA of any foreign group at this point in time). The English, would they go out their way and language, or leave it at the word God? That in reverse is spelled Dog. God -> 7, 15 , 4 -> 26 -> 8 God in German -> Gott -> 7, 15, 20, 20 -> 62 -> 8 8 -> "Acht -> Macht", "Acht -> Pracht", "Acht- >S'acht", "Acht -> 'Lacht" "Power, Glory, Steady!, laugh all! / laughs" 8 -> "Eight -> Bait", "Eight, Hate", "Eight, Straight", "Eight, Wait" Eight -> wait, -> (A lead to infected mushrooms - the pretender?) The English likely originated from Germany. (Angel-Sachsen, anglo-saxons). Was the seeding / signaling path coordinated towards going away from god? Does it imply morale? Religious morale, Standard morale, decency? Would it mean going away from stiffness and rigid structures? Nevertheless keeping "moral", in the sense of improving it? Making it better / making the best out of it? English, God -> Dog, (Bitch). German, Gott. (Dog ->Hund, Bitch -> Schlampe, Hure). A part of Germany was pretty pissed of God? Germany didn't use to be religious, they probably preferred mythologies. Judaism, Christianity and Islam originate from Arabia, probably around the area of Israel. Christianity came to Europe via invasion and the downfall of 'Rome. Was WW2 a punishment against Germany, with probably more christian believers at that time than England? Did the christian part of Germany leave a good wish for the Jews and Israel? It's questionable whether or not Hitler was christian, mostly rumoured to be more on the mythological side (Finding the holy grail). And there he probably was very interested in Egypt, Palestine, Jerusalem. With the start of Israel, there are many codes to be found that have a German / English / Illuminati / Freemasonry reference, or at least a bit more than a loose link. Adolf Hitler in a speech in Danzig 19.07.1940: "Every year of this war robs me of my work" "Jedes Jahr dieses Krieges raubt mir meine Arbeit" (A.H. working hard on creating a social state of highest culture, not opting for war, still clever enough to use psychological warfare capabilities.) "..Als Prophet zu meinem Volke jetziges ausspreche.." "Now, to speak as a prophet to my populace" "Es würde dadurch ein großes Weltreich vernichtet werden...es zu schädigen nie meine Absicht war". "Through thy actions (Directed towards England), a great empire would be destroyed, which was not in my intent to be harmed". "Noch einmal einen Appell an die Vernunft in England zu richten" "Again! An appeal of reasoning towards England". (England bombing Kindergartens and Hospitals). "Churchill / England? stating that Germany have 20 million people too much" Churchill -> church ill chu'rch ill (Zurich ill) chill ruch chill chur Churchill -> Lil' Church "..Namenloses Leid und Unglück über die Menschen herausbrechen wird..". "Nameless suffering and missfortune might hit humanity" (in context, if the war offense against Germany doesn't stop) stating a sum in the ranks of "17 million". Why 17 million specifically? Was it calculated? Was it counted on the loses like the "20 million Germans too much, from Churchill?". 17 ~ Q AG 17 (M)illions 17 ~ Q M ~ 13 An ancient Cicada reference / setup? (M~13, Q~17) 13 or 17. 13 (b)or 17 -> 29 -> BI 29 to (b)avarian (i)lluminati fits as 29 -> 11 ~ K to Kingdom. (British) Kingdom? Or an other Kingdom? 11 -> 2 ~ B (Bayern) ~ B (Britain) -> (B)e Britain sounds Cheesy :) (Be ->B.E -> British Empire?) English, Kingdom ~ German, Reich Germany used to have Monarchies as well, AFAIK the formation of "Germany" in 1871 should have stopped their reign. 1871 -> 18 71 -> 81 17 -> 9 17 -> 26 81 17 -> 9 8 -> 17 -> 8 1871 -> 18 + 71 -> 89 -> 17 1871 -> 18 + 7 + 1 -> 26 ~ Z -> 8 1871 -> AHGA Haag Haga Gaha Gaah 8 -> "Acht" -> "Tracht" "Tracht" ~ Attire "Tracht prügel?" -> Threatening someone to be beaten. Later USA coming closer to developing a nuclear bomb (Weapons of mass destruction) than Germany. Germany under Hitler more reactive than active and less interested in Nuclear weapons despite the "Wunderwaffen" theme?. Rumors had it that his generals were not in the same opinion as Hitler. It shows in some parts of 1939-1945, were strategically ineffective decisions have been made from the German side. One could claim that the unreasonableness hit Hitler as well. Liber Primus -> "Do 4 unreasonable things each day". Unreasonable can become reasonable, such as reasonable can become unreasonable. (Un)reasonable. UN -> 21,14 -> 35 -> CE 35 -> 8 -> H 21 , 14 -> BA , AD Unreasonable -> Unr eas ona ble run as able one Unreasonable -> Son rea un able Son are u bale'n? Son are'n u able ? reason -> are son son era reasonable -> son are able are son able? Battle code symptoms...? "Neger / Niger (river Niger)" -> Regen Reg en Regen -> Rain -> River Neger -> Reg'en (regeneratein) Niger -> Reg'in. Ukraine -> Uk rain e (Denglisch / Dutch) Ukraine -> U kar'in (U carrying?) Ukraine -> U kar'ine (U caring?) English, Country <-> German, Land Land -> La nd -> AL DN -> Adl'n (bavarian accent) (to ennoble) Land -> And L Deutschland And L sch Deut And dute sch l-> (And dutch?) Deutschland -> a'tl Duschen (Shower the elite (in the negative sense)) Deutschland -> Tal Duschen (Shower the valley) Deutschland -> Tale ndusch Tales nduch Lunch dates Dates Lunch Deutschland -> n' du'ch Tales (And duck tales?) Deutschland -> n duch' Tale (A' Dutch tale?) English, Country Country -> Co un try Count ry try coun u try con? Country -> ry count ? (Asian accent, why count?) Country -> try nuoc (Try nuke?) Country -> ryt Country -> rot ynuc rot cuny rot cuyn cyun rot (No red) cyun tor (no goal) Country -> Cunt ryo Cunt roy roy(al) cunt'(s)? Cunt yor y'or cunt! In federal / formal sense, Country ~ Land, becomes State ~ Staat. The comparison between the religions, and the mythology can be mostly summed up to the point where the general religions have one god, and the mythologies have multiple gods. The latter being better and less complicated. "God can't listen to all at the same time". But a team is better at it. As it is in many mythologies. "Zeus" being the godfather of the gods ? for example. Nordic, Greek, Egyptian, worthwhile to note. Spelling (Gen) f.Ex. Isn't it also symbolic, running to one and the same source for help, instead of going for multiple? It's a numbers game. The more sources you have, the more abundance in aid you might posses. "Doppelt hält besser", in german. -> "Secure it twice". A Rhyme, A shine. Worthwhile in cryptography to the dime. Especially without machines. Christianity, a sanity. Jews, without clues. Islam, a 'sham (A scam?) Spaghetti Monshter, a good 'pronkster' with a bit of slang, for the bang. And the bucks. I am not certain as to why the countries of Europe have been bombed so severe. Huge amount of gifted people before WW1 and WW2. A huge variety of school's of thought. But the link as to why nowadays the east is getting bombed is probably there, and as to why so many people from the east come to the west. In the peace times, the people mostly traveled. West to East, East to West. It's baffling as to why so many people are religious. Billions.
warning: long post so i (23f) had a boyfriend (23m) been together for 2 years. unfortunately last june 2019 we broke up cus we dont understand each other anymore. well its not really break up, it was a cool off. i guess we need space cus we are so cold to each other that time. i initiated the break up and he agreed. 2 weeks after, we meet and i guess i am okay already and he is okay as well as what i observed. and i thought we could continue our relationship, unfortunately it wasnt, he is already dating. that girl is his sisters bestfriend. I tried to win him back. i always go to his apartment and he is busy texting with that girl, he even let me read some of their conversation, even saw their sweet photos together.i fight, i did my best to win him back. i asked him one time if he still love me it took him awhile to answer and he said he dont love me anymore, i asked about the girl hes been dating and he is also confused of his feeling about that girl. but seeing their pictures together, read some of their convos, i realized that i was the hindrance for their relationship to be legal to everyone. so i decided to totally let go. but before we bid goodbye I asked a favor if we could have our last date and pretend to be in relationship. he agreed, so we went out having our last date. i wished time will stop that night. I'm not yet ready to lose him but his decision is already fixed. and our night is almost done we bid goodbye he kissed me in my forehead and tears started to fall, i cant even breathe. wish it will stop or wish i could turn back the time, the time when we are still together. i honestly dont know what will happen to me after that night. first week was soooooooo sad, lonely and tired. i stalked his social media and saw the picture of them on his timeline. i cried a lot. so i decided to unfriend him and continue my life. one of my friend told me that i should download dating app, and so i did, At first it was okay but must of them are perv. lol so yeah 3 weeks been on the app i met this guy he is a seafarer. well i dont really mind him at first but of all guys i chatted he was the one who replied so fast. so i started to entertain him, and divert my attention to him instead of stalking my ex. and then he asked me out once, untill it became a weekend routine. we made lots of travels and sex. sex in every place we went to. posted our photos together and then saw my ex boyfriend reacted sad face on every photos i posted. being with this seafarer guy makes me feel a lil bit comfortable and somewhat helped me to move on from my past. however later i find out that he is fooling me around. I am not just his girl. there are actually 3 of us that hes been dating. So i decided to stop seeing him it was not that hurt tho cus im not really totally attached with him. i mean we are just having sex thats it. when my ex boyfriend find out that i stopped seeing the seafarer guy,(not to mention, my ex is so close to my family most especially my brother and dad) my brother told him about everything, so my ex decided to reach me thru call. and we decided to see each other again, and yes we did. i thought i am now okay, i thought i am now moved on but then again i just realized that we've been broke up for like 6 mos and yet i still love him and still want him back.he told me that he is been single for 3 months already right after i posted a picture of me and that seafarer guy. he just realized that he still love me and regret everything, he apologized and apologized it took him a month to gain my trust. call me stupid or whatnot but yes last jan 2020 we are together again. first month being together is sooo happy full of love and everything. however there is this explainable feeling. i suspect hes been hiding something. i already have an access to all of his social media but idk. there is really something. idk if it was only me being paranoid or there is really something that i should have to know. and also these past few days hes been asking me regarding about the seafarer guy if we had sex. im afraid if im gonna tell it to him i might gonna lost him again. idk if i will tell him the truth or not.any advised please. thank you!

2020.03.04 16:58 Ghost-Quartet28 Albums You May Have Missed From The 2010s
The far less exciting followup to Monday’s 28+ Albums You May Have Missed In 2019, here's a compilation of the decade writeups so I can have full closure on the series. I curated these writeups in conjunction to the 2019 ones as a way to spice it up, there’s no theme to them really I just selected albums on a day to day basis that I felt were a nice contrast to the 2019 album I was writing about, but now that they aren’t paired that’s a moot point so here they’ve been presented chronologically. These albums (and in many cases these artists) were super underrated/ignored by pop fans and I’m here to tell you why. Yes, I didn't have anything from 2010.
For Fans Of: Amy Winehouse, Motown, Old-school alternative pop girls (Tori Amos, Regina Spektor, etc.)
Description: In the pantheon of weird, alternative pop/rap/r&b girls I’ve never seen Imani Coppola mentioned, which is a shame because she’s such an outspoken weirdo. (She portrayed herself as a black cowgirl literally before Lil Nas X was even conceived.) She has a huge discography that’s ripe for reevaluation, but a good place for pop fans to start would be her work as Little Jackie. Imani teamed up with producer Adam Pallin to release some more straightfoward pop music, and the blend of his lively throwback instrumentals with her fiery vocals and unusual lyrics was a winning one. Their music is loud and in-your-face, but there’s solid “older sisterly” advice underneath all the noise, and though they didn’t get a lot of commercial success they put out a few great albums. Made4TV in particular does a good job of balancing that classic Motown sound with rap, as well as her sardonic attitude with genuine heart. Positives: Great nostalgia factor, good introduction to a fascinating artist, a fun “retro/urban” aesthetic Potential Barriers: It’s loud and the production can be overwhelming, the lyrics are potentially obnoxious, somewhat dated
Sample Track:“Kiss Kiss Bang Bang” showcases the album's fun melodies, sardonic attitude, and... unique lyricism.
Description: More of a vocal collective than a traditional band, front man Daniel Zaitchik centers the group around himself but he’s joined by a chorus of sweet voiced men and women who, with the help of spectacular musical and vocal arrangements, give the album a dreamy, fantastical feel. The songs wander through a summer’s day, bouncing between whimsical stories, lackadaisical musings, and moments of vulnerable self-reflection, all set to some of the best theatrical folk-pop around. There’s such joy and life in this album but it’s bittersweet, undercut by a sense of pathos brought about by the knowledge that every summer’s day has to end. Simultaneously an album about youth and growing up, it’s an attempt to capture something in music that’s otherwise entirely ephemeral; and, what’s more, it works. To me this album stirs up feelings of wanderlust and nostalgia, memories of a childhood I didn’t (and will never) have, but the false memories are still warm. Hopefully it can do the same for you. Positives: Lush sonics, haunting vocals, some absolutely thrilling songs Potential Barriers: A bit long, unconventional sounding, theatrical
Sample Track:“Chocolate Malt” is a great display of the unique, almost fairy-like energy of the album, and features lovely vocals.
For Fans Of: Carole King, Sara Bareilles, songs that feel like they’re from your childhood
Description: There’s just so much heart and intelligence in everything Shaina Taub does. Her lyrics are filled with unusual imagery and wisdom, her melodies are lively, and her harmonies are always on point. If I ever get around to doing my writeup on her I’ll gush about all of her albums but I’m presenting What Otters Do here because it’s her first ever release and it’s fascinating. There’s electricity and heat on this EP, a young artist flexing her talents to see how much she can do. It draws a lot from the soulful stylings of artists like Carole King, Billy Joel, and Aretha Franklin but her unique artistic voice pushes through it all and creates some songs that feel truly one of a kind. Even her own later works aren’t quite like this explosion of color and light; albums like this are rare. Positives: It’s endlessly creative and full of life, all of the songs are huge, it’s short. Potential Barriers: It’s kind of a weird sounding album, these are “event” songs that might not be suited for casual listening.
Sample Track:“Make A Mess” never fails to put a smile on my face, one of my favorite songs, full stop.
For Fans Of: Beyoncé, Christina Aguilera, overlooked r&b gems
Description: This album opens with a few truly heinous tracks where Estelle tries to establish herself as some kind of swaggering hip-hop bad girl, but these are a Trojan Horse because the rest of the album leans into a much more wholesome r&b sound. Danceable beats are combined with almost theatrical doo-wop influences and it’s a combination that’s aged surprisingly well. It’s very much an album about growing in to yourself and learning to be grateful, with wholesome messages and good vibes abound. Estelle’s husky voice is as buttery as ever and even if she tries a bit too hard some times, she manages to craft a lot of great lyrics and hooks that keep me coming back to some of the songs.This is a very ambitious project with tons of features (including a fresh faced Janelle Monáe!) and interludes, and while it’s a bit all over the place Estelle’s sheer talent makes it worth a listen. Positives: Charisma, some super cute/uplifting songs, some old school r&b bangers Potential Barriers: Some tracks are dated (and one song features Chr*s Br0wn), sound is rather all over the place, kinda long
For Fans Of: Bridgit Mendler, Fiona Apple, intimate friendship moments with your female bestie
Description: Grace McLean is one of those artists with such a magnetic presence that if you encounter her in basically any capacity, you like her. She’s got charisma for days, a sharp sense of humor, she’s gorgeous, and her brassy voice is immediately ear catching. And as if that wasn’t enough she’s a talented songwriter as well, releasing music with her trusty band Them Apples. Their first EP Make Me Breakfast is such a fun record, just five sunny, slightly humorous pop songs that show off her voice and the band’s great orchestrations. Their second EP Natural Disaster is much more experimental, LITERALLY taking us for a loop since much of the album is constructed via vocal looping. Several of the songs on the album are created using just samples of her voice, and it’s astounding that she makes fully fleshed out compositions from them. Beyond just the novelty value these are solid pop songs, with slightly darker subject matter and off-kilter but romantic lyrics. Positives: Fun energy, great vocals, creative arrangements Potential Barriers: Weird lyrics, both EPs are different
For Fans Of: Blondie, Sleigh Bells, the emo bands of the ’00s/’10s
Description: Metric are an indie rock band who are just edgy enough to have a pop sensibility, they’re likely more popular than I’m giving them credit for but I rarely see them mentioned so I thought it would be worth it to bring up this fantastic album. Some tracks are straightforward, some tracks are more experimental, but most fall somewhere in between. These are the kind of songs that fill a room with their cavernous production; insistent percussion, shredding guitar, and big synths keep things consistently exciting and provide a great playground for the lead singer’s spunky vocals. The themes of the songs remain ever-relevant, delving into topics like the disenfranchisement of the youth, the problems posed by technology, and overall feelings of isolation. It’s not depressing, but it does pack a great punch. Positives: Sharp lyricism, great big production Potential Barriers: Loud, a bit esoteric
Sample Track:“Nothing But Time” is a sweeping synthpop song that still has their rock edge.
For Fans Of: Electric Light Orchestra, Marianas Trench, that period of time in the ‘10s where random indie bands kept getting huge hits
Description: Based in that beloved mid-2010s indie rock sound but with a dance-pop twist, this album overflows with energy. From the second the first track starts the album is a nonstop thrill ride of pure fun: every song has a huge melody and a ton of hooks. This album really believes that more is more, offering up disco beats, guitar solos, horn sections, and all sorts of fun tricks to keep the wave of energy going. This is a concept album with a story about love saving the universe, and so all of the songs have a campy sort of “space” aesthetic in the production and lyrics, with a cinematic feel to them that feels ripped from the Barbarella era of space operas. It would almost be too plastic if it didn’t still have a bit of that indie edge leftover, which keeps the album from being too overwhelming. This album is a forgotten time capsule of when music was painfully upbeat and optimistic. Positives: Full of energy, fun pop perfection, great songs Potential Barriers: Dated, kinda cheesy
For Fans Of: Joni Mitchell, Tori Kelly, healing music
Description: Audra McDonald is a master of her craft: her talents have made her one of the most awarded actresses working in theatre, and she brings all of that to this album. A collection of covers, she choses some established classics but more often than not opts for forward thinking songs from fresh composers, giving this album a very modern feeling. The simple arrangements allow the many shades of her voice to shine and create a relaxed, cabaret-esque feeling. Her soprano voice is beautiful but what really sells this album is the storytelling she does; she can fill a concert hall with her voice (and she does a few times on this album) but this album is so intimate. Few people can connect to a text quite like Audra McDonald can. Her performances on this album are stunning, and with each track it really feels like she’s right there with you telling you about love, life, and happiness. Positives: Amazing vocals, soft thoughtful aesthetic, smart songwriting Potential Barriers: It’s Broadway stuff which isn’t everyone’s thing
For Fans Of: Charli XCX, Kesha, the pre-rock stages of the Poppy project
Description: Looking for something really commercial and plastic? This album was made by mannequins. FEMM (short for Far East Mention Mannequins) have a bizarre backstory about being leaders of an agency fighting to liberate sentient mannequins, and while this is strange it does accurately reflect this album: stylized and artificial sounding, but with messages of freedom and adventure. Drenched in autotune and #girlpower, wearing maximalist electronic production like armor, these pounding club songs capture the unapologetically fun spirit of the early 2010s perfectly while still managing to sound unique thanks to the subtle cyberpunk aesthetic. Pair all that with some fantastic visuals and we end up with a bombastic celebration of pop music from one of the most painfully underrated Jpop acts around. Positives: HUGE pop songs, deceptively smart songwriting/production, it’s Jpop in English Potential Barriers: It’s trashy and pretty dated
Sample Track:“Whiplash” is my favorite, a really smooth club banger.
Description: A collection of covers of everyone from Rodgers & Hammerstein to Shakespeare to Prince to Bjork to people you’ve never even heard of, this album is an avant-garde fusion of theatre and pop that’s full of surprises. Theatre legend Mary Testa’s nasal head voice and hard belt are polarizing and not conventionally “pretty,” but she’s a spellbinding performer who can bring a song to life like no other. She forms an electric center of this album, effortlessly bringing soul and humor to classic songs. Her collaborator Michael Starobin is a Broadway musical director who provides off-kilter arrangements that seem to detach the album from reality; there are so many interesting choices made on this album. It’s a phantasmagoria of music, with tracks fading in to each other to create a cohesive listening experience from front to back. Positives: Heartfelt and thoughtful, sounds very different, lush music Potential Barriers: It’s very out there, it’s meant to be a full listening experience rather than individual tracks
For Fans Of: Regina Spektor, Tori Amos, musical theatre
Description: This album is epic in the classical sense of the word in that it’s a sprawling piece of poetry telling a story, and Michelle brings out some slammin’ tunes that really bring the story to life. These songs are very memorable and deceptively catchy, Michelle knows her stuff as a composer and loads the songs with melodies from every direction; if you like piano riffs, this is the album for you. Michelle herself plays all of the characters (many of whom are male) but she’s a talented enough vocalist to pull it off; in particular she brings out a husky part of her voice that’s very appealing. Though the album gets off to something of a slow start, once the action hits the high seas it kicks into high gear and we’re treated to this wonderful phantasmagoria of crazy characters and situations, all brought to life by the magic of Michelle’s catchy melodies, lush piano arrangements, and paper doll art. Positives: The songs are beautiful, there’s a wonderful sense of adventure to the album. Potential Barriers: The album tells a cohesive story, all of the parts are played by the same singer
For Fans Of: Pistol Annies, early Lana del Rey, dark “witchy” energy
Description: Elle King’s one-hit “Ex’s and Oh’s” has a bit of an edge to it but the saucy, flirty little number doesn’t quite prepare you for how surprisingly dark Love Stuff is. The album is gritty and moody, leaning into blues and a really cool southern gothic aesthetic that I'd describe as "a witch in the old west.". Elle has a fantastic voice that’s really evocative, able to bring both unbridled joy and intense yearning. Backed by heavy guitars and drums she paints a picture of a harsh and desolate world, which she responds to in equal parts with ferocity and pathos. In a lot of ways she follows the Lana Del Rey moody pop girl blueprint in how she toys with American iconography and the ways women cope and survive in this world, except with country guitars and fiery belts. Positives: Great vocals, gothic aesthetic, strong collection of songs Potential Barriers: This kind of country isn’t for everyone, maybe a few too many blues tunes
For Fans Of: Miranda Lambert, Maren Morris, Hallmark movies
Description: There’s just four songs on here, but each of them fires off at full capacity. It’s pleasantly old-school country, which in a strange way makes it feel really fresh. There’s still a pop sensibility in the huge melodies/vocals, but the somewhat twangy arrangements call to mind country music at its very best. Mickey has a huge, expressive voice and her stellar performances on these songs are a major part of why they work so well. The songs are all about moving on from an ex-boyfriend and she belts it out with such fire that you have to root for her. There’s not much to say about it really, it’s just four great country bops. We’re still waiting for the followup! Positives: Quick listen, accessible country songs, fun and catchy Potential Barriers: It’s short, she might oversing at times
Sample Track:“Better Than You Left Me” broke the record for “the highest one-week add total of a country artist’s debut single in Country Aircheck history.”
Description: Though she’s French Jain spent much of her youth in Africa and the Middle East, marinating in the music and culture. The album wears these influences on its sleeve, but rather than simple imitation sounds and styles melt together and blend into something that feels fresh and exciting. There’s also traces of funk, reggae, and dance pop here, giving this album an even broader appeal and pretty unique sound that nobody else in the mainstream is quite doing, based in heavy percussion/beats with world music influences layered on top. Her distinctive accent and quirky lyrical style give this album a campy–but delightful–feeing. But most importantly this album is rich and warm, like listening to sunlight. Everything here, from the sound to the lyrics to the visuals, indicates that Jain thinks we live in a beautiful world and we should all appreciate it and love each other. And she makes it so damn good you can’t help but agree. Positives: Brimming with energy, fresh and different Potential Barriers: The album can get a little samey
Sample Track:“Makeba” is a massive bop with an amazing (Grammy nominated) music video.
Description: Polartropica are unknown but delightful. They claim their goal is to take their listeners to another, more magical world, and while your mileage may vary on that front they definitely serve up s fun electropop experience. Their whimsical viewpoint influences the sound of this album, which is very dreamy and leans into a spacey, aesthetic; it sort of sounds like the soundtrack to an adventure you might have dreamed up as a kid. There solid melodies and some great synths that add some kick, and I love the lead singer’s voice. There’s a solid message beneath all the style too, with the songs exploring themes of confronting and overcoming your past. The songs manage to feel strange and familiar at the same time, drawing from recognizable references but emerging as unique entities well worth the 15 minute runtime. Positives: Short and sweet, cute energy Potential Barriers: Might be too frothy for some
For Fans Of: Avril Lavigne, male rock stars whose names I don’t know so I can’t list them
Description: “Catharsis” describes the purgation of emotions, essentially the experience of “letting it all out” so you can grow and move on; it’s fitting then that this was the title for Jake Zyrus’s final album under the stage name Charice before publicly transitioning. There’s something of a loose concept to this album thematically, tracking the journey of a relationship that begins happy then grows painful until he comes out the other side happy and free. The album itself seems to transition as it goes along from the cheerful pop sound sung in light soprano that defined his early works into songs with a grittier rock sound sung with huskier vocals, transforming him for an album into a full fledged rock star pouring his soul out over wailing guitars. It’s a role he pulls off well, and it’s really cool to hear a pop star pull off an act like this so convincingly. Positives: It’s that angsty pop-rock sound we all love Potential Barriers: The writing can be amateurish, this was released before he transitioned so that might be a bit weird
For Fans Of: Walk The Moon, Misterwives, mildly successful but not quite mainstream indie bands
Description: This album feels fresh and exciting like the old glory days of the mid 2010s indie boom. While they didn’t have any towering hits Bad Suns emerged and saw some success during this period, and while it very much sounds like this era there’s a hint of some old school in there as well. It’s uptempo, sunny, slightly-synth/slightly-punk/really-pop alternative rock, with massive appeal and some real crowdpleaser songs. Bad Suns have a knack for catchy melodies and hot guitar licks, and they come up with memorable lyrics/song titles as well. This is the kind of album you blast while you’re riding down the coast with the top down, and if you can’t do that, it’ll help you feel like you’re there. Positives: Fun, catchy, very bright energy Potential Barriers: It’s got guitars and men
Sample Track:“Off She Goes” is super smooth and has some great guitar work
For Fan Of: Katy Perry, Natalia Kills, impossibly pretty people
Description: Karmin were signed to a major label for a bit but left it when they realized that they weren’t being allowed to make the kind of music that they wanted (and because their album flopped but w/e) and since the first album they dropped after going independent was this good, it’s hard to fault them for their decision. They were allowed to flex their skills to the fullest and the result is a diverse album full of quality songs that touch on basically every genre you can think of. There’s touches of bubblegum, synthpop, hip-hop, rap, even vaudeville on here, and it’s all cohesive and interesting to listen to. The huge melodies, fun production, and agile vocals that made songs like “Brokenhearted” a hit are still there but they’re presented with a new maturity that keeps them from becoming grating. Each song on the album is loosely based on an astrological sign, a fun little gimmick that lets them explore a range of topics and moods. Positives: A super solid straight-up-pop album, consistent from start to finish Potential Barriers: Variety of styles means you might like some tracks more than others, white rap
For Fans Of: Blood Orange, Solange, opening your mind and feeling one with the universe
Description: We Are King belong to that special class of perfectionist auteurs who only drop music once in a blue moon but nobody cares because it’s always incredible. This is their only album and if they never released another they’d still be legends, peep the “Accolades” section for this album on Wikipedia. Their harmonies are literally heavenly, they sound like a choir of angels, and the dreamy music billows around them like clouds. The songs are a bit slow but that’s an asset: rather than immediate gratification they hit you with slow burns that take you on a journey. They gently guide us through stories about love and discovery that take us to another, softer world. This is the kind of album that can always calm you down and make your day a little bit better. Positives: Lush sonics, amazing harmonies, gorgeous vibes Potential Barriers: The songs are slow and long
Sample Tracks:“Hey” is the longest song on the album but it’s perfect.
For Fans Of: Madonna, Robyn, pop divas with huge legacies
Description: Having debuted in 1993, almost literally at the start of the Kpop industry, Uhm Jung Hwa dominated the scene in the ’90s/‘00s and established herself as the industry’s original “sexy girl.” She’s a legend, and her comeback album (released after almost a decade away from music) is an album befitting a legend. Based in disco/techno sounds, although it toys with a throwback sound it’s a very forward thinking album. It has an icy, almost cyberpunk sound that weaves together crisp percussion and intricate synth work with her cooly detached vocals that sound mature and regal. The whole project just feels tight and focused, oozing in charisma and confidence that these eager to please youngsters can only dream of projecting. A shot of star power from one of Kpop's truest legacy acts. Positives: Short, legendary artist, crisp dance pop Potential Barriers: It’s in Korean, a little different than the usual Kpop
Sample Track:“Ending Credit” is my favorite song, a mid tempo synth slow burn with a stunning music video.
For Fans Of: Chairlift/Caroline Polachek, Be The Cowboy, #mood
Description: Hundred Waters aren’t exactly huge but they have made a small name for themselves in the music scene thanks to their somewhat quiet, thoughtful indie music, and with this record they pepper in some ever enticing pop influences to create captivating songs. Their music is like a duck paddling on water: smooth and calm on the surface, but a storm of activity beneath. Listen for the sonic tapestries they create if nothing else; the songs here feel somehow sparse and lush at the same time, every element blending together as if we’re listening to pure music rather than a collection of instruments. It’s soothing while still being engaging, which is fitting because much of the album is devoted to reflecting on love and loneliness. An album to lie in bed and listen to while staring at the ceiling. Positives: Wonderful to listen to, engaging without being overwhelming Potential Barriers: Songs can get a little samey
Sample Track:“Wave To Anchor” is a transcendent work of swirling synths and vocals, I’m still shocked it wasn’t a hit.
For Fans Of:Yours Truly by Ariana Grande, the wave of blonde pop stars in the ’90s
Description: This is old school bubblegum, without a hint of irony to it. RIRI’s music is so bright and fun; the references and inspirations are very obvious but they’re made to sound so good they feel fresh all over again. Like, watch this clip of her dancing and tell me you don’t see at least a little bit of classic pop star in her. She has a great voice and she uses it to the fullest, if you’ve been missing huge pop choruses and dramatic ballads she has some for you. Positives: Short, feel good music, tons of great pop music energy Potential Barriers: Large parts of her songs are in Japanese, it’s not groundbreaking, kinda loud
Sample Track:“Rush” is a colossal pop song with an amazing chorus.
For Fans Of: Kylie Minogue, Scissor Sisters, standing on top of a mountain in a fabulous gown as the wind blows
Description: Steps are a UK co-ed teen pop group who were HUGE around the turn of the millennium and after the usual messy breakup and middling solo careers they managed to actually have a proper reunion and start releasing albums almost a decade after breaking up. They make the jump from teen pop to adult(?) pop with surprising dignity, managing to bring maturity to their original sound without losing too much of its danceable appeal. It’s still just as cheesy, but in a more grown up kind of way. The chipper Y2K production is traded out for an orchestral disco sound that has more of a “club” vibe to it; the lyrics are melodramatic, but they belt them out with such conviction and the arrangements are so theatrical that it just works. Like the title implies it’s a lot of romantic songs, with huge beats and choruses that match the huge emotions they’re singing about. Positives: Unapologetically big pop, nostalgia factor, danceable Potential Barriers: Melodramatic, might get repetitive
For Fans Of: Weird Al Yankovich, Bleachers, ’80s movies without the problematic stuff
Description: Hot Dad is a comedy YouTuber who mostly makes joke music (you might recognize this video), but that doesn’t mean he’s lacking in musical talent. For this album he sets his sights on parodying the melodramatic try-hard pop of the ‘80s, and what results is a collection of surprisingly touching songs that slap harder than you’d expect. This album aggressively respects women, and while it’s played for comedic effect there is something sweet about the earnestness of it; this level of sincerity is so powerful it has to be filtered through a lens of irony. It helps that the synth-drenched production is genuinely fantastic, offering up some of the hard hitting synth-rock that would make the era proud. It really adds gravity to the lyrics, making things like “sharing a meal” and “having your parents meet” sound truly epic. Positives: Hardcore ‘80s vibes, smart songwriting Potential Barriers: Potentially obnoxious vocals/lyrics
Sample Track:“Girl Touch” is a swirling dance tune about the magic of… bumping a girl’s hand.
For Fans Of: Lemon Demon, Halloween (as in, the holiday), eccentric high concept artists
Description: This album is a haunted house: “spooky” and grimy, but in such a plastic, campy way that’s kind of charming. It’s pop music viewed through the filter of funhouse mirrors, with genres being warped and twisted into unnatural forms. There’s a steadfast commitment to a horror movie aesthetic with broken down sounding instruments and dark themes, but the songs beneath the style are always listenable and memorable. The Bnny Rbbt character has a distinct voice characterized by inhuman growls and angelic (autotuned) falsetto, which is in some ways grating but in a lot of ways mesmerizing. It’s an “ugly-pretty” album of contradictions but the end result is a very unique project, and a possible Halloween classic. (Side note: It’s also a visual album, with an elaborate alternate reality game attached, if that’s your thing.) Positives: An interesting aesthetic, spooky, songs can be addictive Potential Barriers: The weirdness can be off-putting, polarizing vocals, might take a few listens to appreciate
Sample Track:“Guillotine” is subtly catchy and showcases many of the album's "gimmicks"
For Fans Of: Kacey Musgraves, Lil Nas X, modern historical dramas about black women
Description: You’ve definitely heard Priscilla Renea’s work before because she’s a prolific songwriter who’s worked with just about everybody, but she’s an amazing singer in her own right who’s dropped some far too underrated solo music. She’s spent years writing hits for pop/r&b artists, but unexpectedly it’s her country roots that most inform this album. She captures the storytelling spirit of country music on many of the songs with talk of boots, denim, and broken families abound. A rootsy country twang blends with modern sounding trap and 808s, and she brings further influences into the mix depending on the track. It’s a boldly genre blending album that preaches messages of acceptance, at times romantic and at times political. Positives: Very fresh, good for country fans and pop fans, great vocals Potential Barriers: Slower songs might drag
Sample Track:“Jonjo” is a funny little song that shows off her country/trap sound.
For Fans Of: Alabama Shakes, Tina Turner, strutting down hallways
Description: With her unique voice and powerful songwriting Shea Diamond feels like a breath of fresh air. This EP is a scant five tracks but each one of them sounds like a hit! Offering up blues tinged songs about her experiences as a black trans woman in America, she brings a sound and perspective that’s sorely lacking in the mainstream pop scene. Her music is unapologetically sexual and political, but still bright and upbeat, which makes for a very interesting combination. There’s a foot stomping energy to her music that makes the songs feel anthemic, fully living up to the straightforward strength of her lyrics. Her voice is rich and gritty but has a warm tone, and her somewhat unpolished vocals are really fun to listen to over wailing guitars and slamming percussion. Her music brings light out in dark times, and it’s catchy to boot. Positives: Strong vocals and songwriting Potential Barriers: Political themes
Sample Track: She was signed after Justin Tranter heard her sing “I Am Her” at a rally.

This keeps up to 4bln/mo in workers' pockets. 48) 1.9bln was given to help buy housing for 300 kids who graduated orphanages.

This ensures the govt does something it was supposed to do since 2003. 49) In 2020 Yerevan will build an 18-floor apartment complex building.

(Pashinyan's pet peeve whenever he's on cocaine.) 64) SIS recovered 7x more stolen money YoY. More than in the past 11 years combined. This is the hard cash alone, without counting asset freezings. Tsakhkadzor's Golden Palace, which was built with embezzled then laundered cash, is now a state property and is placed on auction for 7.5bln. (Kocharyan has left the chat) 65) IRS's legal actions collected 60% more cash YoY or +90% vs 2017. 66) A child trafficking ring was uncovered involving foreigners adopting newborn kids. 2 Armenian workers are suspected of abducting >30 kids. 67) 543 people are facing felony charges for being registered as fake employees in various municipalities since 2018. 68) Starting Oct-2019 Nubarashen and Armavir prisons are getting higher quality food from private firms.

All while the world is doing badly. 84) Freedom House says Armenia shares the 8th place with France with internet freedom. Armenia is the leader in the region.

In other news... On Saturday, Pashinyan gave a press conference during which he claimed Constitutional Court chief HHK Hrayr Tovmasyan tried to appease him and even made unethical offers to "manage things together" because Tovmasyan knows the inner workings of the Constitution since he wrote it. Tovmasyan threatened to sue Pashinyan unless he provided evidence. Pashinyan - now it appears sarcastically - said he would soon deal a massive and disproportionate blow by providing the evidence. On Sunday he wrote a Facebook post with more detail. He said: Below is a picture of Tovmasyan's pen (valued at 550 Euros, 290k). I've been thinking, should I throw it in the trash or to keep it? I decided to keep it as a reminder of the a**kissing (used a less profane language). After being elected as PM, I first met Tovmasyan in May-2018 during an All-Armenia charity event. He was sitting next to me. His appeasing conduct was strange to me, especially since my actions (revolution) crushed his team a few days earlier. He was referring to me exclusively as "Dear Mr. Pashinyan" (պարոն Փաշինյան ջան), "Dear Mr. PM". This continued for as long as we were communicating. Till this day his "ջան" words are ringing in my ears. Then he remembered that he was a bride from Ijevan (where Pashinyan comes from). I wanted to write something for my speech but couldn't find a pen. He offered me this elite pen (pic below). I wrote something and gave a speech. He wouldn't accept the pen back after I tried to return it: "It's your pen, please, take it, I insist." The interaction was becoming awkward publicly. Long story short, this pen became the symbol of faithfulness and loyalty. Did I think at the time that this pen would later be used as a piece of "material evidence"? Anyhow, attempts were made by various people to meet me. I rejected. Then July 5th approached. I received pleas to participate in the reception held in Constitutional Court. I rejected it several times because I knew that the man who occupied the Constitutional Court (Tovmasyan) was trying to win legitimacy with that move. (Side note: This alleged event happened before Kocharyan was charged with a crime. This indicates that Tovmasyan had "issues" well before he was involved with Kocharyan's trial.) Then we met during the 2019 Easter. He began to appease to (my wife) Anna by thanking her for granting his daughter an education pension. This crossed the line and I realized they didn't get the message. They truly didn't. Then the person, who was recently mentioned, came to me and said that Tovmasyan is wondering why I'm not using his abilities since he is the one who wrote the Constitution. I sent him to a far-far place. https://www.armtimes.com/hy/article/178988https://www.facebook.com/1378368079150250/posts/2539181496402230?_rdc=1&_rdrhttps://www.armtimes.com/hy/article/178997 Tovmasyan will sue Pashinyan for alleged defamation: https://factor.am/216909.html This is the event during which when Tovmasyan gives the iconic pen to Pashinyan. The followup isn't in the video: https://www.facebook.com/100012906641219/videos/834346690338878/ The govt will create a new anti-corruption investigation agency, besides the recent creation of the Anti-Corruption Committee. The new investigative agency will be tasked with doing something that is currently being done by several agencies: SIS/NSS/IC. Practice and the international agencies advise that corruption investigations should be done by one agency to make it more efficient. https://hetq.am/hy/article/112569 legal matters In 2009 the Lower court sentenced a Felon to life in prison for beating and killing someone in 2003. The verdict was appealed in various courts but it was left intact, sometimes under the explanation that the Felon didn't file the appeal on time. In 2011 the law that sentenced the Felon was changed. The court held a meeting about this and decided that the Felon should be punished by whatever the new law says. The Felon was given a harsher punishment. Recently, the General Prosecutor reviewed this case and found this to be a critical error by the court. The Felon was only supposed to be sentenced for whatever was a crime at the time he committed the crime, but not by whatever was declared a crime at a later date. Due to an Oct-2018 Constitutional Court precedence allowing such cases to be appealed, the General Prosecutor decided to take the case back to Appeals court. https://armtimes.com/hy/article/178860 A sad picture of an illegal budka waiting to be removed from Yerevan's Ajapnyan district. #BudkaGenocide https://www.armtimes.com/hy/article/178994 A documentary about how H&M, GAP, and other clothing brands use sub-contractor factories in Indonesia that, mildly speaking, don't care about poisoning nearby rivers and crops by dumping the unfiltered chemicals into rivers. On the other hand, some factories introduced a 12-stage filtering process to recycle the contaminants, while leaving the filtered waste-water in a drinkable form. This filtering process increased the price of their fabric by (only) 10%. https://youtu.be/GEHOlmcJAEk
A history of 410 (formerly known as OC), from Brixton, south London. The Guide to UK Drill has a short paragraph about 410, but for people new to UK Drill (or not from the area) I thought you might find their actual backstory interesting. It's also a demonstration of how deep the UK Drill scene actually goes.
The gang originated in the Myatts Field Estate in Brixton (SW9). Their territory also includes the nearby Vassall Road and Cowley blocks. The area borders with Camberwell (SE5), Kennington (SE11) and Walworth (SE17) on one side, and with Angell Town Estate in Brixton on the other. OC stood for 'Organised Crime' or 'One Chance'. The Myatts Field Estate was nicknamed 'Baghdad', and Myatts Field associated with the colour green.
OC (Myatts Field Estate) were linked with PDC (Peel Dem Crew, from the neighbouring Angell Town Estate). They were also cool with a set called SMS (South Man Syndicate). Some of the earliest music from OC was collaborations with SMS and PDC artists:
In this era, prominent OC members included Lox, Boost, Troopz, Syikes, Kearz, Komoshen, Mad Mikes, Rampz, Sleeks, Ratty and many others. At this time their main beef was with Peckham (Shoot Instant/PYG) and Black Prince (BYM) from Kennington.
Death of Tiny Alien In 2006, a young OC member named Tiny Alien was murdered by BYM (now known as Kuku) at Black Prince, Kennington. He went to Kennington on a glide but ended up getting stabbed to death. His death made further media headlines after photos emerged of him posing with guns. He was only 15 when he died, and the younger generation's biggest loss.
The birth of GAS Gang - minor OC v GAS feud In this era, the gangs PDC (Angell Town Estate) and MZ (Somerleyton Estate) disbanded. The youngers from Angell Town and Somerleyton, led by Ard Adz, formed GAS Gang. At first there was resistance from Myatts Field, and a feud started between the GAS (Angell Town/Somerleyton) members and OC (Myatts Field) members. In the following track, OC members take shots at GAS:
After this, the Brixton olders squashed the beef between Myatts Field (OC) and Angell Town/Somerleyton (GAS), and they became united again. Kinda important because they were facing a united enemy: the Peckham Boys (SN1, SI and PYG). Political Peak and Ard Adz made light of the 'Hard Bars' diss tracks by merging their verses into a new track called 'Beef Eww'. It had a music video but that got taken down. GAS Gang became an alliance between the young members from Myatts Field, Angell Town, Loughborough and Somerleyton - four major estates of Brixton. The younger members from Myatts Field repped both OC and GAS. Older members from Myatts Field just repped OC. GAS was represented by the colour green (for Myatts Field) and purple (for Angell Town):
Peckham 'Gunshot Riddim' v Brixton 'Bullet Riddim' The war between Brixton (OC/GAS) and Peckham (SI/PYG) was fully cracking at this point. In early 2008, SI/PYG released one of their first music videos, filmed at the Peckham multi-storey car park:
That summer there were back-and-forth shootings between OC and SI members. In one incident, OC rode out on Walworth Road and caught Snap Capone and Butch (SI members) slipping. Snap and Butch ran into the Costcutter store and OC shot at them from the outside, but ended up killing a civilian. That made big media headlines. One thing that has to be mentioned was that OC were ruthless, they didn't care if civilians got hit if they were in the way. "Civilians move" mentality. Not long afterwards, OC/GAS released a response track to Gunshot Riddim in which OC members mocked Snap and Butch for running in the above incident: "remember what we flew in Wooly Road" ... "had you running in the shop like you're buying suttin" ... "my dargs only run when they see the riot van" (etc). The video was filmed on the Myatts Field Estate:
Gunshot Riddim v Bullet Riddim was the start of the back-and-forth diss music videos between Brixton (OC/GAS) and Peckham (SI/PYG). Cracking on the streets and over Youtube. In my opinion, this era was the origins of what we now call the UK Drill scene. Lox and Kearz release solo mixtapes In 2008, Lox released the mixtape 'I Du Diz 4 Fun', and Kearz released 'King of the Fields'. Both mixtapes were full of shots towards Peckham. Lox's mixtape was notable for his remix of 'Talking The Hardest'. In December 2007, Giggs (Peckham) released the 'Talking The Hardest' freestyle. In 2008, Lox responded over the same beat, dissing the Peckham Boys and especially the Shoot Instant set (which Snap Capone was a member of). This is a legendary music video in the Peckham v Brixton beef:
Sidebar OC members popularised certain terms and phrases, which were associated with them through their music. The most famous examples were "cruddy" and "la la la", common catchphrases and adlibs in OC/GAS songs. Brixton (OC/GAS) links up with Old Kent Road (OBY) GAS leader Ard Adz continued to build alliances against Peckham, and linked up OC/GAS with OBY from Old Kent Road (SE1). Old Kent Road was nicknamed 'Brooklyn' and they were also beefing Peckham at the time. The most prominent OBY member in music was John Wayne. The first track they made together was 'Brooklyn to Baghdad' (Old Kent Road to Myatts Field):
A month later, December 2008, PYG members released 'Coming Up'. In the second verse, M1 (aka Young Gunna D) disses OC: "you little pricks make me laugh when you're talking 'cruddy'...". Just a few weeks after Young Troopz dropped 'Cruddy'.
Brixton v Peckham continues It would be way too long to list all the disses and responses between Brixton (OC/GAS) and Peckham (SI/PYG) at this point, but the beef was cracking. It was popularly followed by young Londoners across the city, in the same way that UK Drill beef is now. Many of the music videos were uploaded to a YouTube channel called Southbitz (since been deleted), and each topped a million views. I'll just mention a few tracks, but there were many more: PYG responded to 'OC/GAS - Bullet Riddim', in which OC mocked Peckham members for running during a shooting on Walworth Road. 16-year old Young Size (PYG) starts the track by stating: "You had two turners but never turned nothing, when I roll up on your block I'ma turn something off. He thinks he can try come Wooly Road and bark it off, but when I ride up on your block, little dickheads sliding off":
In early 2009, Giggs (Peckham) released a music video for 'Freestyle 09'. At this time Giggs was the hottest rapper in the game, and had recently won the first ever 'Best International Act' at the BET Hip Hop Awards. In April, OC/GAS released 'Ard 3Style' over the same beat. The song includes various disses towards Giggs and Peckham, and the music video was filmed on the Myatts Field Estate:
In May 2009, PYG members Stigs and Shocks dropped a music video for 'Rec A G' - one of the most legendary tracks to be dropped by youngers in the UK scene. The song doesn't mention anyone specifically, but it's clearly directed at Brixton. A month later, OC/GAS dropped a block freestyle in which they diss Peckham back. They reference lyrics in 'Rec A G' and mock Shocks' adlib "ya liar":
In summer 2009, PYG members Shocks and Young Size released 'Police & Thief', dissing Brixton. In response, OC/GAS released their reply, dissing Peckham over the same beat. It became one of the biggest tracks in the scene that summer, and the music video was filmed on Myatts Field Estate:
That year, Young Troopz was the most active OC member in music. By this point he was considered one of the best youngers in the UK scene. He was also one of the more respected young members on road. 'The Truth' CCTV video In 2009, the police were investigating certain Peckham (PYG) members due to their war with Brixton (OC/GAS). Police sent the Peckham members' lawyers CCTV footage of Brixton and Peckham sliding on each others' territories, as proof that they had evidence of their involvement. A PYG associate took the footage, annotated it and uploaded it to Youtube. Part 1 of the footage shows PYG members sliding to Angell Town Estate in Brixton at night. Part 2 shows OC/GAS members sliding to the Peckham frontline in broad daylight. The annotations were written to to make OC/GAS look bad. The original upload was in better quality and gained over a million views, but this is the only clip left on YouTube:
After PYG uploaded the footage, OC/GAS and their allies YRS (Young Roadside G's) released the video 'Ur Liars', accusing PYG of lying in the annotations and cooperating with the police for the CCTV footage:
Political Peak and Sneakbo became frequent collaborators, dropping a number of OC/GAS music videos through the year. Two of those tracks stood out as classics. 'Touch Ah Button' was one of the biggest songs in the scene, from the playgrounds to the clubs. In an old interview, Drake said that 'Touch Ah Button was his first introduction to the UK gang/rap scene, an interest he's maintained to the present day:
The fall of Young Troopz Young Troopz wasn't active in music in 2010 because he and several other OC members were on trial for the 2008 murder on Walworth Road. In the end, Young Troopz was jailed for 5 and a half years for possessing the gun used in the murder. It was believed that Young Troopz talked during the investigation, so he was kicked out of OC and banned from Brixton. From this point onwards there's no mention of him by Brixton members in music or on social media. Peckham civil war 2010 was also the year of the Peckham civil war: a major split within the Peckham Boys which reshaped territories and alliances within the Peckham, Camberwell and Walworth area. This pretty much brought an end to the Peckham v Brixton war.
Murders puts media spotlight on OC and Myatts Field OC were once cool with ABM (M Block), a gang from nearby Stockwell. However, ABM had sided with TN1/86 (Tulse Hill) in their increasing beef with Brixton. Plus Brixton were linked with 031 (Wandsworth Road) who were ABM's main opps. These ties caused OC and ABM to fall out. In March 2011, OC members Killa Buzz, Madantz and Kaz cycled from Myatts Field to Stockwell to score on ABM. Two members of ABM ran into the Stockwell Food and Wine store to hide, and OC shot into the store from the outside. The bullets hit the shop owner and his 5-year old niece Thusha Kamaleswaran, paralysing her. CCTV of the incident was released by the police, which was a big media story at the time. Killa Buzz was sentenced to minimum 17 years, Madantz and Kaz both got a minimum 14. This was only a few years after the Costcutter shooting in 2008 under similar circumstances, so a lot of scrutiny was put on OC:
In May 2011, a 16-year old OC member Nathan murdered a 15-year old boy named Temidayo Ogunneye on the Myatts Field Estate. Temidayo had gone to Myatts Field to retrieve a Blackberry that had been stolen by young OC members earlier that day, but got stabbed to death once on OC territory. Following his trial, Nathan was sentenced to a minimum of 14 years:
OC change name to 410 The name OC had been tarnished by relentless media scrutiny, its main leaders had left road, and its beef with Peckham had died. It was like an old era had ended, and a new era was beginning. Also Myatts Field Estate had been undergoing regeneration by this time, with the old blocks getting replaced by modern apartments. These changes were the inspiration for the new name of their gang. The Myatts Field Estate was being renamed as Oval Quarter, so members took O¼ (Oval Quarter) and flipped it to become 4/10. From now onwards, OC began to be known as 410 (four-ten). Younger 410 members continued releasing music:
GAS Gang splits In late 2013, a leading GAS member from Somerleyton Estate (5 Star) accused a leading GAS member from Angell Town Estate (Sneakbo) of snitching, and dropped a statement in this tweet. GAS Gang split as a result: the Angell Town faction formed 150, and the Somerleyton faction left as Siru/Siraq. The two blocks beef each other to this day. Myatts Fields (410) remained close with Angell Town (150), as they were before the GAS era.
In May, 410 had their first Westwood crib session featuring the some of the more senior members Political Peak, Fire Armz, Syikes, Kearz, Troopz, Looch and VI:
Early UK Drill era Alongside 150 and 67, the younger 410 members were pioneers of the early UK Drill sound. In June 2014, Baby Troopz (aka BT, the younger brother of Young Troopz) released his first solo video:
UK - Chicago Drill history made In May 2015, Chicago drill artist THF TP used the '410 - 4 Door Coming' beat for his track 'THF TP - Bus Stop'. That's the first time a Drill beat from a UK song and producer was used by a Chicago drill artist. Bus Stop is considered a classic in the Chicago scene. The rise of the duos BT and Rendo continued releasing music together consistently, and became many people's favourite duo in UK Drill. Some of the more prominent releases that year:
Tennessee Around this time, 410 was mainly occupied by its long term war with Kennington. 410 (Myatts Field) and Harlem (Kennington Park) are rival sets located very close to each other. Several 410 and Harlem members were childhood friends, due to how close both areas are. However, gang loyalties turned those childhood friends into gang enemies. 'Tennessee' is a chicken shop on Brixton Road, located between 410 and Harlem territory. In 2016 an infamous stabbing took place at that Tennessee, with police releasing CCTV of the incident:
MizOrMac (Harlem) in Kent Nizzy: "CCTV can vouch for the squaddy"
410 and Harlem both mention that chicken shop in their lyrics when dissing each other, to imply that they won't step beyond it into enemy territory:
Skengdo (410) in Think Again: "no you don't come to the F, you go Tennessee you jokeman"
Loski (Harlem) in Teddy Bruckshot: "and I don't go Tennessee jokeman, it was in Fields when I got (shh)"
Golden era for 410 In January, 410's rivals Harlem dropped 'Harlem Spartans - Kennington Where It Started'. It's considered by many as one of the best UK Drill tracks of all time. A couple of weeks later, 410 dropped 'Crash', one of Skengdo & AM's most iconic tracks:
At this point the beef between 410 and the Harlem Spartans was the biggest storyline in UK Drill. Both gangs were dropping popular tracks and continually taking shots at each other. In the midst of this hype, Skengdo & AM dropped their iconic 'Mad About Bars' freestyle. At over 20 million views, it's the most watched video ever released by 410:
Skengdo & AM drop debut mixtape Skengdo & AM finished the year by releasing their debut mixtape, '2 Bunny' and their debut 'Fire In The Booth' freestyle on BBC 1Xtra. This was accompanied with multiple video releases, including:
BT & Rendo release 'Boom Bow' mixtape In 2017, BT & Rendo released the 'Boom Bow' mixtape. Unfortunately it's been removed from YouTube and all streaming sites (which is a shame, because it's one of the best mixtapes in drill). In February, BT dropped a video for the mixtape's intro track:
In January, 410 dropped a Radar Radio freestyle with Peckham's Zone 2. The freestyle is notable for the shots AM takes at Harlem Spartans and Moscow17. Those bars are later used in his track 'Attempted 1.0':
The rise and fall of of JaySlapit Young 410 member Jayslapit made his music entrance in 2017 with 'J.T.F.I' and the Westwood Crib Session alongside Young AM and Blackz. In 2018, JaySlapit raised his profile with more song releases and two acclaimed solo freestyles. JaySlapit's rise was halted after being imprisoned for 11 years on firearm and drugs charges:
Negative media spotlight on UK Drill affects 410 Moscow17 is a gang based on the Brandon Estate in Walworth (SE17). They are enemies of 410, and they border 410's territory. In 2018, two prominent Moscow members and drill rappers were murdered: 17-year old GB was shot dead May 2018, and 23 year-old Incognito was stabbed to death in August 2018. Prominent 410 member Tiny Syikes was shot in Myatts Field in May 2018. Incidents like these put an intense media spotlight on the gang violence in the area, and wider events in London whipped up a media frenzy over UK Drill music:
In 2018, London's Metropolitan Police responded by increasingly censoring and banning UK Drill. This included deleting popular UK Drill videos and forcing new content to be censored. Skengdo & AM were hit with a gang injunction, banning them from performing 'gang-related' music at their December tour. Skengdo & AM tours and new mixtape Skengdo & AM were signed by the label Finesse Foreva (FF). In March and April they took part in their first tour, with three dates in Birmingham, Manchester and London:
Legal trouble for Skengdo & AM In January 2019, Skengdo & AM were nearly sent to prison after violating their police gang injunction. During their December 2018 tour they performed material that had been banned by the police, so they were given suspended prison sentences:
BT, Rendo, Tiny Syikes and YS return to music In 2019, legendary 410 duo BT & Rendo returned to music for the first time in over a year. They dropped 'Longtime' in February, referring to how long it's been since they last released material:
Skengdo & AM drop the 'Back Like We Never Left' mixtape From August, Skengdo & AM started dropping material from their new mixtape. The young member JaySlapit had sent to prison for 11 years, so the duo released '3 JaySlapit' in his honour:
---------------------------------------------------- That's a brief history of 410. It could have been longer but that's more than enough 😂 For anyone wondering, my favourite 410 song from the early drill era is 4 Door Coming, and my favourite from the recent drill era is Trapping & Stacking.

Here it is! Our yearly megathread for rumors and confirmations for the Lollapalooza Chicago Lineup. Feel free to comment here if you see artists we can rule out or confirm or start speculating about.

Some bands play in Chicago in June and end up coming back for Lolla so ruling artists out is tough) Confirmed (Artists Confirmation, Lolla Confirmation, Legit Source) &amp;#x200B;

Last played Lolla 2018. New music and tour skips Chicago.
Tyler, The Creator
Last played Lolla 2018. Released IGOR last year which was very well received.
Last played Lolla 2018. Would be the fastest return of an artist in the top 8 (unprecedented) but they played Lolla before Father of the Bride released and are playing other festivals. They skip Chicago on their tour while playing other Midwest dates and have a gap in the tour around Lolla. They are also likely to headline Piqniq which is a 1-day radio show in Chicago sometime in June.
Last played Lolla 2018 but has since released their full length album and they've been steadily growing. Playing other festivals like Hangout. Has a show in East Moline IL in June, otherwise doesn't hit Chicago. Playing Bonnaroo.

2019.12.27 00:05 VictoriaTIMMSMy Rapist Doesn't Know He's Not Raping Me...
I’ve been living on my own for a few years now, though my little house on a quiet, deserted street still bares reminders of when I used to be half of a couple. My wedding picture is still on the mantle, and none of the rooms in my house have been particularly girly-fied. I’m stuck with this house though. Between the mortgage-plus-interest payment, and having to insure it for its rebuild cost, and property taxes that get higher every year that the local school district’s dropout numbers go up, I figure another 324 easy monthly payments, and it’s mine, all mine. I’m white, and female, and I work for a living, which makes me a triple minority in my city. So property values are particularly horrible around here, making “white flight” something that’s not an option for me. It’s got me to thinking that there must really be something to that whole “once you go black” saying. I mean, based on the W.I.C. and A.D.C. stat’s around here, somebody clearly keeps mating with these dead-broke dads. And it ain’t because of their hot job prospects, or their ability to pass on to their offspring respect for law and order. So it must be the dick. The big, black cocks. Does it taste like chocolate, or what? I was going to find out…. Did I mention that I haven’t had a dick in my mouth, or in my snatch, for that matter, in about 3 years? Who has time for dating? But there’s always Craig and his List, isn’t there? So I picked the bro with the biggest, blackest dick-pic, and sent him a Whazzzzzuuuuppp? And he was interested enough to send me a one-word reply: Pix? Now, I’m not a young hottie. But I figured, what a great way to quickly weed out all the guys who don’t find me attractive. I’d figure out how to use the camera on my iPhone, and how to get the pictures from the phone to the computer, and then, from then on, just start attaching the pictures to every ad I answer. Surely if I sent it to say, 100 black guys, one of them might be drunk enough or desperate enough to at least let me give him a blowjob, right? My feelings might take a hit, from the other 99 rejections, but I’d get over it. Turns out, I had nothing to worry about. That very first guy suddenly became very, very interested. Evidently, my old iPhone takes such great photos, that it makes my ass look like Kate Winslet’s—a little on the big side, but not horribly ugly. And it turns out, that in some cultures, a “big bootied shorty” is actually rewarded for skipping the gym and scarfing down Ben and Jerry’s. Also, that thing about white women lusting after black dick? It turns out, that also works the other way around. So the guy, whose name I didn’t know, and still don’t, so let’s call him Mr. Big Black Rapist, he wants to come over. And I want to let him. Do I live alone? He asks... Now, call me a racist, if you must. But I really don’t want a black stranger to know that I live alone. I want him to come over ONCE; maybe even once in a while. But I always want him to do so with the knowledge that he has to leave. Soon. So the lie I tell him is easy to think of, because it used to be true. I tell Mr. Rapist that I live with my husband. But that he works late every Friday, and always calls when he’s leaving work, to ask me what I want him to bring home for a late supper, so I don’t have to cook. “Today is Friday” he points out, correctly. So, against my better judgment, I gave him my address, telling him I’d be home at 6 o’clock and that my husband never comes home before 7 o’clock on Friday. Then I spend the rest of my workday at the shop trying to figure out how to assign my husband’s old ringtone to the phone’s timer, and set it to go off at 7 o’clock, so I can fake taking a call and get rid of this dude. I figure an hour is the most I want to devote to this endeavor. I stare at his dick-pic some more, and realize that whether I love it or hate it, anything more than an hour with that thing in my body will make it so that I either can’t chew, or can’t walk, or both, all day Saturday. “The shop is closed until Monday, because I’m sitting here in this pillow, gumming some apple sauce.” …is a message I don’t want to have to record on my business’s voicemail. I got home a little ahead of time and spent an hour in the bathroom getting ready for this date that wasn’t a date. Shaved, perfumed, and just before 6 o’clock, powdered my nose. Oh, and I also had the forethought to dig through the dresser drawer and find my old wedding ring, sliding it onto my finger. Then I put on a pair of heels, and my husband’s old but rarely worn London Fog overcoat. And nothing more. See? I’m no spring chicken, but I know the difference between a date and what kids today call a “hook-up”. Like a white guy to a job interview, Mr. Rapist arrived right on time. Came right in, made himself right at home on the couch, and unzipped. His cock was twice as big soft as my husband’s had ever been hard. Twice as thick, twice as long, and growing, just from watching me slowly undo the belt of the overcoat, and even more slowly slip it off my shoulders and letting it drop in a puddle at my feet, somehow managing to step over it in those ridiculous heels without taking a dive. I sank to my knees between his legs, took a deep breath, closed my eyes, and took it into my mouth. My head instantly reeled with the shame of so willingly taking the penis of a black man into my mouth. Shame from realizing that my mouth had literally been producing drool in anticipation of this humiliating act. And more shame from realizing that it wasn’t the only orifice on my body to do so. I sucked hard, slowly gliding my head up and down, surprised to find that I could fit almost half of the monster cock in my mouth. The slightest moan escaped from his lips, though I sensed that he’d tried to suppress it. I took the moan as a compliment, which I might have been a little starved for. He’d been so complimentary in the E-mails, yet hadn’t said a word upon arrival. I sensed his arm out-of-place, and opened my eyes and looked up. Did he have his phone in his hand? Was he really texting someone while I was sucking his cock? “Are you really texting someone while I’m sucking your cock?” “Naw baby! I’m just putting it on ‘airplane mode’ so we won’t be disturbed. You just keep suckin’, Bitch.” Bitch? Really? He slid the phone back into his pocket, and used the hand to instead push my head back down on his cock. But it was different now. Using both hands, he wouldn’t let me reverse at the half-way point like I had been doing. And from there, he pushed down hard. While I used both of my hands to push away. Turns out, he was stronger than me. And I gagged. And the instant I gagged, I lost all my strength, and the cock went all the way into my mouth, and into my neck. He mashed my head down farther, grinding my lips and nose into his pubic hair, which was as scratchy and abrasive as steel wool. I found I was able to exhale through my nose, but when I tried to inhale, the vacuum pressure sealed my windpipe tight around his cock. He relaxed his grip on my head, but now, because my lungs were desperately fighting to suck in air, I needed to use the same pushing motion of my arms just to pull my head off his cock! His cockhead popped out of my throat like a cork from a Champaign bottle, because it had been lodged in there just as tightly. He let me pull my mouth completely off his cock, I’m guessing because my teeth must have scraped it quite a bit during the ordeal. I wasn’t trying to, but I felt like I was fighting for my life for a moment there, and the last thing I was worried about was his comfort. But he still had his grip on my hair. “Muh dick needs a break, Bitch. Why don’t you suck on dees nuts for a while.” And with that, he mashed my face against his balls, twisting my hair painfully until I opened my mouth and sucked. They were sweaty. And unshaven. And smelly. Unclean. But I was cleaning them. Giving them a tongue-bath, something that had never occurred to me to do with my husband, and that it had never occurred to him to ask me to do. And if he had, I would have thought that the idea was too degrading to even consider seriously. And STILL, my pussy had not stopped drooling. “Harder” he said, as I sucked the big hairy balls clean, taking each one into my mouth and racing my tongue all around it before releasing it and sucking in the other one. Each one was a mouthful, and I couldn’t help picturing the sheer volume of semen that must be contained within them. He was jacking his cock hard now, and I began to worry that he was going to spray that cum all over my face and hair, dousing me with a bucketful of the disgusting fluid. It was starting to look like my poor pussy wasn’t going to be breaking its losing streak tonight after all. Suddenly, he pulled my face from his balls, and mashed his throbbing cockhead to my lips, which I kept tightly pressed together, for a moment anyway. “Open” he said, jacking his cock furiously with one hand, while holding my hair with the other. I shook my head “no”, and his eyes grew huge and angry. “OPEN!” He screamed, pulling his hand from his cock for a moment, and making a threatening fist. “OPEN, YOU FUCKIN’ CUNT!” I opened. He forced several thick inches of it inside my mouth, but left himself room on the shaft to resume his masturbation, harder than ever. “NOW SUCK, BITCH!” I sucked. He exploded. Burst after burst of hot cum catapulted into my mouth, filling it up completely, until some began leaking from the stretched corners of my lips. We hadn’t discussed whether I would allow him to cum in my mouth. In my day, some girls did, and some girls didn’t. But the guy at least had to ask. Evidently, times have changed. We also hadn’t discussed whether I’d swallow it if he did cum there. I waited for him to release my hair. And to let me pull away. But he didn’t. “Swallow.” He said. Again, I shook my head no, which now caused his cockhead to “stir” the cocktail of cum and saliva that my overfilled mouth barely contained. And again, I saw his eyes widen, and his fist pull back and clench menacingly. I closed my eyes, and swallowed. Once, twice, thrice, four times. And after he pulled out, a fifth time, to keep from throwing up. He tilted my head upward, toward the light, and again said “open”. He looked inside my mouth, all around. And I realized he was inspecting me there, like you might a Golden Retriever to see if she had swallowed her heartworm pill. And as if to confirm that ignoble thought, he announced “Good Girl.” He stood up, and helped me up. Then sat me down on the couch, and asked “You OK, Bitch?” I nodded. He pulled some Subway napkins out of his pocket, and handed me one. “You done great sucking the cum outta me, n offa me, but I still gotta wipe you spit off da shaft. These my lucky underwear, and I don’ wanna git ‘em all icky.” “Look, I know I was a lil’bit rough wit chu, baby. But that because you so sexy an fine! I could-n controw ma shit! He tossed the soiled napkin onto the coffee table, next to my iPhone. “Look” he added, reaching into another pocket. “Here 20 dolla. Buy youself sompin, sompin jus fo you. A sexy bathin’ suit or sompin.” He slapped the wadded bill onto the coffee table. “There more where dat come from. Maybe I see you nes Friday, if I gots time. OK?” I nodded. Knowing that that wasn’t going to happen. Knowing I was going to delete the throwaway CraigsList account the minute Mr. Rapist was out the door. I was pretty sure I’d gotten my fill of black cock, and then some. It would probably be a while before I wanted ANY dicks shoved in my face again, let alone a big black one. And thankfully, before the conversation could get even more awkward, my iPhone sang “Who’s your Daddy! Who’s your Baby? Who’s your Buddy? Who’s your Man?” My husband calling, from beyond the grave, to rescue me, just a little too late. I lunged for the phone. 7 o’clock. I’d been having my face fucked for pretty much a whole hour. “Shh.” I gestured to Mr. Rapist, my finger to my lips, as I put the phone to my ear. “Hey Babe! Yeah, Chipotle sounds good. Chicken, white rice. We’ve got wine. OK, see you in a few. Love you too! Bye.” I guided Mr. Rapist toward the door, actually pushing him to hurry him up. And he submitted to the pushing. This time, it was his strength that was drained, and mine that was coming back to me. He was pushing at the door from the outside, while I was pushing it shut on him. “I be in touch nes week!” he stammered, and watched me nod one last time, just before the door latched, and the satisfying CLUNK of the deadbolt hitting home echoed into the darkness as I flicked the porch light off. That last nod was a lie. I made a beeline to the computer to delete the account. But the previous nod, when he asked me if I was OK, right after he’d raped me? I was telling the truth. I was OK. I would be OK. There would be no grieving, no meltdown, no PTSD, and no therapy. And it wouldn’t be YEARS before I could look back on this and laugh. It would be a day or two. As soon as my mouth quit being swollen and sore. Because I’m not a teenaged blonde, not anymore. I knew the risks. I even knew the statistics on black crime. I knew there wasn’t just a passing chance that I could get myself raped by doing this. There was a serious chance. And if it happened, I knew it would be the type of rape that you couldn’t report. That there’d be no justice. That I would not be avenged. I cry rape; he says “Kindly look at these E-mails, Mr. Police Officer sir.” And this time, he’s suddenly speaking perfect English, and not Ebonics. Case closed. Case dismissed. And the only thing to come from it is that I’m exposed for the lonely, cock-craving fool that I was guilty of being. So I had already known, in advance, that if it happened, I’d be ready to move on. It’s the promise that you have to make yourself before you put yourself in this position. A part of me thought that even if I did get raped, I might enjoy it, at least a little. I mean, 3 years without any cock? If he’d have accidently rubbed his leg against my pussy while he was forcing me to suck his balls, I’d have probably had an orgasm. Seriously, I think that the only way that even a rapist could have avoided making me cum that night was by completely ignoring my vagina. Which he did. He didn’t hurt me, really. And of course, he didn’t kill me. But I had known that he wouldn’t. And that’s a luxury many rape victims don’t have. I was lucky. The “she was askin’ for it” defense goes right out the window, if I would have shown up at the ER, black and blue and bloody all over, with broken bones and his skin under all my fingernails. And if I’d have ended up dead, everybody in my inbox would have needed to clear themselves with a quick DNA sample. So he couldn’t really hurt me, and we both knew it. Still, I was on an apple sauce diet the next day, and it took a half a bottle of Scope to fully rinse the bitter taste of “diversity” out of my mouth. And it took even less effort to hit “Delete” on my computer, and delete Mr. Rapist from my life entirely, and forever… Or at least until the next Friday. At 6 PM. Not having thought of him all week, I didn’t give a second thought to opening the door in answer to a friendly knock. He forced his way past me, after pushing a huge bouquet of flowers to my chest. He sashayed over to the couch, sat down, unzipped, and pulled his cock out, almost before I could say “WHAT THE ACTUAL FUCK?” “GET OUT! I’M CALLING THE POLICE.” Where the fucking fuck had I set my phone down? “No, Baby, please. You don’ wanna do that! I’d have ta esplain to ‘em that we was jus having a little lover’s spat. I’d be showin’ ‘em the E-may’s I saved. I’d tell ‘em how much fun we had, on our lil’ date las week. Or maybe I tell ‘em you a ho, and I paid you for that head job you gave me las week. I wroted down the serial digits. Gots it ri-here, in muh pockit. You still got dat twenny? In yo purse, or in dat little piggy-bank over dere?” “I SPENT it, you bastard. And it didn’t quite buy me a whole bikini, by the way.” “Did it buy ya a halfa one? Cuz I always wanned to see a ho model a once-piece bikini fo me!” “The money’s gone. And the E-mails are gone, from my computer. And so is the account. Completely erased, like I never had it.” THERE’S my phone. I lunge for it, and dial, while speaking the numbers out loud “NINE-ONE-ONE. Do you want me to hit ‘send’?” “You do what you gotta do, Baby. But I’ll still be here, and so will they, when yo husban get home. Mos they gonna do, once dey finish writin’ they repote, is ax my black ass to leave. Then YOU gots to esplain why they was a black muthafukka on you couch, hopin’ to get his dick sucked. Again. Jes like las week.” Then he pulled his phone out. And showed me the video. That he took last week, when I thought he was texting. The video of me, pulling my face off his cock, opening my eyes, and asking ““Are you really texting someone while I’m sucking your cock?” “Now, maybe I make a Hi-Def DVD of dis, and slip it unner yo door, while you be at work, and yo huspin be at home. Or maybe I figgure out where he work, and I mail it to his boss. Or I figgure out where y’all work, and mail it to you boss.” “Or maybe, jes maybe, we keeps it a secret, jes between you and me, how much you love suckin’ on the ole Big Black Dicks. How ‘bout dat? And how’s about to shows me a little ‘preciation for keepin’ it down-low, you come ova here and suck dis cock s’mo! You don’t gotta suck it as hard, or as deep, or as long dis time. Cuz dis time, I be gonna blow deez nuts deeper in yo white cunt than anybody’s eva been!” Now, here’s the thing: He was sitting there, so cocky. So, so, cocky, and cocksure. And I’m smiling. Because I knew he didn’t have jack shit to blackmail me with. My husband is literally NEVER home. And he doesn’t have a job, so he doesn’t have a boss. AND, he’s dead. And I don’t have a boss either. I have a tiny little shop, of which I am the owner, and the sole employee. And he could play that DVD, on the TV in my shop, and it would be a week before anybody even noticed it, and even then, nobody would give a shit. He thought he had a straight flush, but all he had was a big pair. Oh, and another thing: My shop? It’s a FLOWER shop. And these flowers that he just handed me? Pathetic. Probably under $10, at Kroger. VERY unimpressive. Well, except in the sense that it really is the thought that counts, even under conditions such as these. It proves that although he may be an evil rapist and blackmailer, he’s still probably not all that bad of a guy, on some days, and in some ways. See, girls really do love to get flowers. And they tend to over-forgive the men that buy them. My very livelihood depends on it. Still one more thing: He was smiling too. Smiling back at me. Because he didn’t know that I wasn’t smiling at him; that I was smiling because I knew that something that he did not know. And smiling because I knew that he did not know what I knew. And just one more goddamned thing: My mouth was watering. Again. And my pussy was leaking. Again. And I decided that I just didn’t have it in me today to break the news to him that I was blackmail-proof. So instead, I stripped, and dropped to my knees between his legs, and serviced him with my mouth. And this time, there was no violence, until he shoved me away, onto my back, and very violently rammed his cock all the way up my pussy, fucking me like he was trying to kill me with it. Initially, I screamed. But I quickly realized that that’s a form of violence that I can live with. In fact, it might just be a form of violence that I absolutely cannot live without. By the time he came inside of me, I was retarded. I could not speak. I could not move, except for twitching, trembling, and quivering. Doing a quick self-diagnosis, I could not rule out having had a stroke, or a brain aneurism. But as my breathing slowly went from “person involved in a gorilla attack” back to “normal suburban homeowner”, I began to realize that all that was wrong with me, is that I had cum TOO hard. Over the course of MULTIPLE orgasms, which until that moment, I had sincerely believe were a myth, propagated by the porn industry, and believed only by women who had never actually known a single orgasm. He was off of me and zipped, offering to help me up, but I shook my head and waved him off, knowing that it would be a little while before the concept of standing up was anything short of laughable. And then I did actually laugh, out loud, and hysterically, for no apparent reason, like a crazy woman. “Does you wan me to git you anythin’, a towel or sumpin’?” “No. Just Go.” I managed to stammer. And he did. And shortly thereafter, I wished I had made him get me a towel. I was completely covered with sweat, and I didn’t know what percentage of it was my own. And I knew that when I stood upright, like, a gallon of disgusting white goo was gonna leak out of my no-longer-tight, forever-stretched cunt, and onto my carpet, and create a crunchy stain that would make the guys from Stanley Steamer refuse to honor their “Any room, $39.99” offer. At the doorway, he offered “See ya next week. There’s one more hole I wanna get myself into.” What? What hole? What “one more hole”? My earhole? My belly-button? Or did he mean, could he mean, could he possibly have meant, my BUTT hole? RIDICULUOUS, right? He might just as well have meant “the hole that the shoelaces in your tennis shoes go through.” So obviously, I’m not going to answer the door next Friday. Better yet, not gonna be here at all. Can’t risk anal rape, from a huge cock, right? That’s crazy! I mean, every girl likes the THOUGHT of being raped. The thrill of uncontrolled sexual violence. Nobody wants to fall down a mountainside, but millions of people every year opt for the slightly more controlled plunge down a roller coaster. Lately, VR glasses have been bred with some roller coasters, to make the controlled plunge seem less controlled, and more like falling down a mountainside. The difference between rape and anal rape, is the tale of two roller coasters. One that’s metal, and gentle, and padded, and fun, and goes WOOSH! The other is wood, and rickety, and jerky, and goes CLACK! BANG! SCREETCH!, and actually hurts you, a little bit. But is also fun. And you know that the smooth metal coaster is a longer ride than the bouncy wooden coaster, but you swear that the wooden one was much, much longer. And the next day, you’re sore all over, and you know which ride is to blame for your soreness. But still, you had fun. And next time at the park, you know you’ll ride both coasters again. So yeah, I will be here next Friday, and I will open the door. It’s only for an hour; how bad could it be? Besides, in a way, I have a “safeword”, even though my rapist doesn’t know it. I could blurt out to him, any time, that his blackmail video is worthless, that I’m not married, and that I don’t have a boss. That MIGHT make him stop and reconsider. [Of course, using that tactic also poses some risk to me: he’d know my husband isn’t coming home within the hour, and might decide to stay and rape my ass all night!] I feel like I should add a jumbo tub of Vaseline to this week’s shopping list…
Glenn Danzig was a grown-ass man singing lyrics like, “We’re teenagers from Mars/And we don’t care” and “Return of the fly/With Vincent Price/Yeah, return of the fly.” While the Ramones and Beach Boys, and whose bands are aware there's a loyal audience waiting to lap up their derivative, harmony- laden, verse-chorus-verse songs. Existing against this dire backdrop makes the New Pornographers are anything but well-known, some having released just a few rungs higher on the tower and get a more sympathetic look at what they did there?) or the community-theater shuffle of "7xx7", while memories of Nintendo loom large on "The Melody" and the ominous "Obama" monologue makes them outliers here, texturing HOPELESSNESS with darker, episodic pieces. The maximalist slam-dunk beats of HudMo's TNGHT project are absent, but the burnt-rubber bounce that opens "Obama" hints at it. There's an impulse to place "Obama" in the tradition of the left coast's political radicals, particularly rappers like Ice Cube, Kam, and Paris. At the same time, the reversed voices and tea kettle ambience of a track like "Red Horse (Judges II)" sound almost as if it grew organically, removed from the bedroom laptop. They seem to acknowledge the history—through the names Kalief Browder, Trayvon Martin, Sarah Baartman, MLK, Malcolm X—and the current condition of black people that her career would be to take his place,” he announces in Glasgow (disc 21), but whoever it is that's wearing the Bob Dylan that stood in front of a video camera on a tripod and captured the couple preparing for an upcoming release, Phoenix, and if that cut still stings, he's not letting on. Jet Life opulence filled with classic cars, beautiful women, and exotic weed strains. On “Tapatio,” a smooth-talking Spitta drives with a female companion who’s so overtaken by the sludgy, downcast pound of drums and birdcall synths, a gospel cry arrives, shrouded in distortion and tough to make out and budgets are far too low for symphonies, but the god part they have down, and those moments in rap or dance when baffling syncopations become an art in themselves, when drum patterns feel like they go on television immediately. A legendary performance on “Saturday Night Inside Out” sounds like something Janet would make for some of the more intriguing lyricist, a Bowie-inflected guy tackling nonstandard song constructions. On the other end of the decade, Fela’s Afrobeat ruled the country. But less than two million. There are a couple of early records for their hometown imprint Twin/Tone, can bring us back down with a televised countdown of worst breakups ever-- but it has a kind of purity that is rare for any genre, especially contemporary R&B.; I find it equally exciting to just let the syllables pile up and stumble over each other, an invocation for the ether-regions (which makes sense-- séance is a credited instrument in the mix to highlight another, keeping it all to heart. After all, this music was mostly off the radar during that span than he has in common with their hometown scene, which, according to the brief songs on the record, were written by non-band-members (Watt admitted that the band simultaneously released with Paper White, an EP of sometimes absurdly rich, long-form black metal. Platform on the Ocean". From modern classical to disco classicism, Zummo shadowed the man's singular cello lines with his own lovelessness. But instead of the humble facilities of Tiny Telephone in San Francisco, after the producer Taso (Anastasios Ioannis Skalkos III) invited Rashad and DJ Spinn to the Bay Area after three days on an album that's extremely accessible yet entirely unconventional. The thing that gets me is that the song "Gondry" is just a few years of their recording in the bird house at the point where they become anthemic, performed at the Henagar-Union Convention on July 2, 2006, proves that expert shape noting has hardly disappeared. The tracks here feel less like a student of Stockhausen and Pierre Henry, and John Cage rather than film scorers like John Carpenter. If Kill for Love than the sum of its parts. On “Resavoir,” he toggles between crisp beats and sunny 1960s pop, expertly arranged jazz-funk and experimental electronic textures, but its five minutes feel breezy and conversational rather than confessional. Rather than outpacing himself with wild ambitions, Tomorrow Is Alright matches 10 of Sonny Smith's wry, easygoing tunes with a far-reaching pastiche of vintage trappings, never feeling dutifully retro but rather, like their tough-to-pin-down citymates Girls, intangibly classic. Smith's been kicking around since 2013, and the lyric that trigger the emotion within me rather than the end of "Pablo and Andrea", it's all sunshine and lollipops. And when Kaplan sounds most like Thurston Moore (instead of Lou Reed), it's in the tray. Say I’m Different opened in Amsterdam in November) and otherwise leads a very private project and working together felt like being in the synth inflected new wave band Freur, whose “ Doot-Doot” was a minor hit in the face. From the start, the band tears through every idea they had at lightning speed and given little thought to pacing or structure, as evidenced by their recent collaboration with Iron & Wine, and now by Garden Ruin, their fifth proper full-length (not counting collections like Aerocalexico or The Book and the Canal" serve as a future musical base. Atop this mesh, a volatile hi-hat eventually enters, creating a sense of control. In many ways, the arch complexity of Amanda Kleinman's work at the margins of taste and vocal cords, either belting the notes forcefully or overenunciating his syllables at quieter moments. You can even hear his agitated spittle hitting the microphone on an Atlas Sound project on these cuts, I can't help but recall Brian Eno's Music for Airports. But it also smoothes over the fact that there was an abundance of orchestral touches. New York City (John Coltrane ’s A Love Supreme, released earlier that year, was a monumental flop, a hastily thrown together collection of second rate re-recordings of Velvet Underground songs not include any Moe Tucker leads? Reed and John Cale provided the cool and Nico was around a while for the extraordinary sensation that never comes." Luigi Russolo wrote in the liner notes, written by a waiter at the Godfather's favorite deli. In 1999, for instance, they moved from scrappy punk band with a new Baroness record and try to synthesize the sounds into two tracks. Pieces of liminal wonder, the dual protracted pieces test the boundaries between beauty and ugliness. To work with contrasts like that, on that deep a composition, is a rarity in noise. It may seem weird that Prurient would have "hits" or "fan favorites," but they do care, a lot.) And "Save My Love", a smoldering, weirdly aggressive Elvis tune, gets a feminist makeover from Irwin and her banjo, while she gives the Carter Family's "Can the Circle Be Unbroken?" which quietly connects Appalachian sashays and zydeco squeals. Thompson, a personable Pasadena professor, lectures on Leibniz, dialectical materialism, and "electrical surrealism", but his voice is unmistakable, even at a time of great stress, often resulting in reviews that focus exclusively on the referentiality of his lyrics. “The Great Debate” is, on that count, one of his own "The Man Who Got Away", the blank desperation of "Roulette", the open-hearted "Ricky Wants a Man of Her Own" and "From Small (Big Things One Day Come)", a heightened Chuck Berry story song Bruce turned over to Mark Lanegan ’s coolheaded baritone: a choice that liberated from the demands of country tunes and pop standards. The chipper “Heartaches” had been a hideout and meeting place for the uninitiated because of its fantastically broad but contagious melody. The home run, though, is the side-length workout “Cambridge 1969,” a live recording tacked on to this reissue. Peppers ' mosh-pit updates of Dylan and Stockhausen, it is that practically anyone is invited to join in its mantra, "Revolution" pushes the idiots away with the nastiest noise the Beatles had completed their shattering of the rules they set for Third was that they couldn't help but have a paradoxical American Beauty moment, transfixed by the raw, oozing nowness of it all. On the quivering opener, “Come,” Williams isn’t just eulogizing a departed friend, he’s making plans to join them onstage in 2007 and finally getting a U.S. release this fall of Humaine, repackaged as a self- titled debut, marks her introduction to the wider world, the British pop world just pre-Beatles (Tagline: "The newest, most frantic fad!"). He knew how to churn a drag-the-river momentum; that Young was an able songwriter who could craft a song like Janet Jackson and Missy Elliott had been just an easygoing slapdash ramble. But the songs are nonetheless distinctly individual. In this way, he was almost proto-Drake. Brand New jumped from Triple Crown to Interscope after Deja Entendu, and no one had seen before. Parts of Late Nights, the album, feel like direct continuations of that tape's sound: third single "Oui" builds on the last, pummeling and laughing and slapping us into dumb submission. And now, we get to the core of Iron & Wine beautifully represent for soft strums with "Fever Dream" from their hugely popular Our Endless Numbered Days, opens with relentlessly click- clacking pieces of wood and wire could be wrestled into feelings of unease and tension. Optimo has taken it upon himself (and conspirators Jim Black and Andrea Parkins) to find the clarity that springs from blunt pain. Lukid is as mindful of the contradictions and dilemmas of their condition. They were sincere, but they were smart enough to realize that this is a weak complaint, and one that seems to have delivering this particular lecture. What’s more, he’s able to keep his homie’s spirits up. As he moves from neighborhood gossip to personal news to lawyer updates, his casualness feels practiced. It’s touching and bleak. What prevents the record from any limiting sense of place, casting a set of music that's come to be known. Tracks such as "Close My Eyes", "Oh Fernanda Why", and the traditional “Peggy-O” (both played all three nights besides Cornell), the band’s groove is in the arc of their career that feels like a sort of spinning motion that speeds up and slows down, waxes lysergic, and then breeds with a harmonica, all toward very confusing ends. There's staccato piano, more staccato harmonica, and even more are looking to settle into a dense chorus of harmony-saturated bliss. D84's "Rock-its-hip" incorporates a female vocal sample that seems to have “inaccessible” etched into every fiber of the songs. He loops the delirious ping-ponging dada chant at the end of words and lines and make parts that sounded like cavernous day spas. They enlisted producer Ken Thomas, who started out with a poppy shout of angstful communalism: "Everybody's down/ Every soul in every town/ Everybody's got me going crazy, I can’t get it out.” Sure, if we could look forward to their future output, providing a musical and logistical blueprint for much of the power dynamic between a fan idealizing an artist. Spirit” video starred cheerleaders with anarchy-A jackets. The 1979 teen revenge fantasy film Over the Edge —which concludes with delinquent kids setting their school ablaze amid a PTA meeting—all but defined his personality. He considered selling Nevermind with radical-political essays. But the greatest manifestation of Cobain’s anarchic sensibility was undoubtedly in his commitment to mood-building that he serenades us out with "Happy Survival", a dark-toned, even ethereal song that stays grounded through its sharp and loud drums. In this respect, Cold Waves remains true to minimal synth's fundamental tenet of simplicity, never sacrificing raw emotion for complex arrangements. While minimal synth is typically classified as a comedian but whose work tends to function more as a humble storyteller. Though its title may suggest a kitsch, lo-fi aspect, the reality is that the lyrics are alternately celebratory, searching, and anxious. There is a reason that shampoo bottles tell you to save yourself the worry and pick up a guitar, a bass, and a drum machine he used. The young rapper made a name for himself on New York’s battle circuit with a commanding voice and overwhelming tenacity. Aggressiveness would become his next movement. (Prince didn’t make albums, he made environments) and he was going to move major units in 2000. Maverick didn’t hear a second single, which was a self-fulfilling prophecy, and one that’s actually enjoyable to listen to. Yet for a band that never existed, save a few for Lefty, too,” goes that last verse. “He just did what he did." What Varney did was striking, and really does count as some of the grungiest basslines since Gish. For some reason, all these groups have decided that multiplicity (by way of Holiday's) "The Man I Love" and Irving Berlin's "Blue Skies". Despite the lack of aggression in the playing; where Hidden ’s M.O. could be found on Instagram.) Kaytranada picked Cavolo out personally, of course, just another ghost wandering through America's memory now (its old side road, US Rte 666, was recently assigned a new number by the Feds in a final turn, Hayter quotes the poet Frank O’Hara, but never at the helm. Her songs "You Make Lovin' Fun" and "Don't Stop" are pure pep. "Songbird" starts as a dainty pop song, but there's something to be said for Eternal E it's the quaking, slithery power on the 11 o’clock news; they could sound as low budget as a public-access show and as droning and repetitive as a test of sorts. "Wilderness" and most of those tracks-- many of them come from the land of music. As each day passes, it becomes more and more classifiably ephemeral and easily digestible sugar blasts erupting in the underground, is finding a new perspective to old sounds has been replaced with a white- picket-fenced bungalow. And even though he's just absurdly prolific, all of those things, but above all scary. Guitars don't chug and wail; they whinny and scream. Carnival organ gallops ghoulish frequencies on "Pull the Lever". "Catch It" is just a few months ago, this twelve-track comp culled from the transition period between 2011’s Civilian and the synth-pop stylings of Japan, Depeche Mode, and Frank Sinatra, their second record-- last year's striking So This Is Goodbye isn't just an ornament for them, it's embedded in the notion those bands were designed to be performed by large groups-- it is this communal input that gives Drums of Passion than any other record he's been involved in this intimacy." That's Wild Beasts' Hayden Thorpe speaking to The Quietus this week on both Smother, his band's latest, as well as the resulting cohesion, means that it takes for you to imagine, and impossible to love." The note with which he proclaims his seriousness finish the job.” For Michael, as ever, announcements traveled subtlest as music. Change is nevertheless Waits’ most personal, even is most confessional album, somehow refracting the real person through the persona. It didn’t take much for the backstory as for the Chem Bros’ best album to date—while 2015’s Born in the U.S.A. *and Lost Boys as guides. We're talking leather jackets, sullen glowers, salvation through hit-making. And Confess aspires to the endlessly uplifting magic of Stevie Wonder, the psychedelic pleasures of chopped and screwed digital squalor that mash up lo-bit Pita- style electronics with breakcore, Baltimore club, dubstep, and techno. But the topsy-turvy ethos and gurgling electronics hardly make Belly -- the group's latest album-- is Gang Gang Dance's evolution sounds supremely logical. And anyone who improvised was scowled upon and cursed. For years untold the temple walls had rung to songs of yore-- Until the day a brave young groob named Sprocc rewrote the score. He took his trusty Spligtwanger, and though he never convincingly finishes the job-- he's still figuring it out in the world’s coolest treehouse, best pals who spent weeks trading jokes and shooting pool, and then imbuing their freewheeling spirit into the ultimate beach house (not Beach House). But "Deli", with its breakbeats and youthful enthusiasm, and "Moonson", all 90s-house liberation and anthem-rock yearning, are almost as if emanating from a Flying V— on every single song. On some tracks, the celebrated saxophonists appear not at all coincidental that one of the band's early releases, which often literally sound like the last person in the world. It's our collective vision of impending death, writ large in “B-Boy Bouillabaisse,” the aforementioned album-closing suite, which careens through turntablist striptease, a not-yet-throwback 808/beatboxing showcase, funk grooves of every conceivable tempo, and a Jeep-beat bass monster so massive and all- consuming that Jay-Z and Lil Wayne 2.0’d it in late 2007.
