and just when young me had wrapped her head around the existence of the alien concept of "music with more than four beats per measure"
fuckin,, calamity comes along with its rapidly changing and outlandish time signatures and then right at the end they hit you with ten seconds of fuckin free time
"how can they play music not to a beat," i screamed through tears, "it's not real, it's illegal, i'm confused and scared,"
new logo for my fellow leftists who oughta tell me what illegal stuff they are doing
me, counting the beats: one, two, three, four, o-- wait five? six? seven??? oh god what the fuck is happening my primary school band practice didn't prepare me for this
this is depressing as all hell but
homestuck is probably the first time i ever heard a song that wasn't in 4/4 or 3/4
some of homestuck's music is fantastic and you absolutely can listen to almost all of it without knowing anything about what a katkat venti is
long, the story of how i discovered indie music and got Good Taste because of homestuck
when i was young the only two ways i had access to music were
- my mum's ipod classic
- the "best of the 70's til now" radio in the car
i couldn't buy my own music and i wasn't aware of music piracy (but even if i was i wouldn't know what to look for), and i would pretty much never go out of my way to find music because i didn't get the point
and then, one day,, i started reading homestuck, and homestuck has music in it as part of the story, so without explicitly looking for music i ended up finding some that i really liked
i found out that it was for sale online, and when i clicked the link it was for a website called bandcamp. at the time i literally did not know that you could buy music on the internet anywhere other than itunes. the apple walled garden is real and it is terrifying
i bought the music with a prepaid visa card i bought with birthday money, and i loved having my own music that i wanted to listen to for once
i looked around on bandcamp and found more music i liked, made by people i hadn't even heard of and didn't play on the radio (i was genuinely unaware that indie music existed), and now i'm rly into different varieties of music and i listen to a lot!!
so thank you homestuck for getting me into music. and also for aradia
i just found out about sex dot com
this has to be the most expensive fucking domain to ever exist, it's been reported to generate up to $500k per month in ad clicks, it was once sold for $13 MILLION dollars, and it was once stolen by a guy impersonating the real owner, who was eventually ordered to pay $65 million in losses and damages
there must be millions of horny teenagers just typing "sex.com" into their browser every day or something, what the fuck
wikipedia's namecheap article is two thirds actual content, one third giant "this article has multiple issues" box
mastodon bot that only boosts the posts where someone is halfway through making an argument and it sounds really bad without context
"am i saying that all car crashes are good? certainly not. but i don't think we should make the argument that they're all bad."
"i don't normally like saying this, but in this case, the landlord association had a point - one that was, in my opinion, totally compatible and even emblematic of anarchism."
"death will come to us all. and you need to make sure your children are thinking about that every single day."
@lynnesbian what about the category of "fuck, we can't trademark the name we were planning on using? i guess we'll use the code name then", .e.g. bluetooth
