Day 240: Wolfbike
Yoyoyo- Jacob showed up tonight at my house tonight, so we made a Wandy song. We went into this hoping to make “Bog Pop”, but we decided that what came out is actually Horrorgaze, thus making Horrorgaze the official genre of Wandy.
This song is mostly SK-1 played by Jacob (the “butts” part, the drums, and the terrible baby noises). Jacob also improvised vocals on this one, which- as best as we can tell- are about a homeless woman. I did all the productions and played fretless bass in there. 

We Are The New Music.

comments i’ve heard about this so far include “this is fucking terrifying,” “uh oh,” ”i am deeply unsettled by this,” and “i will listen when this hangover abates somewhat.” i’m really proud of it.

Seriously though this is good

Grandaddy

Hello!

I guess I’ll start now. My name is Philip Cosores and I am a writer and photographer in Buena Park, California. It’s bright and early and cool out right now. If you don’t know Buena Park, it is a suburban town that borders Anaheim on one side and Los Angeles County on the other. I can hear the Disneyland fireworks at night and be in Downtown L.A. in 30 minutes without traffic. From here I freelance for all kinds of wonderful publications (The LA/OC Register, Paste, Wondering Sound, AV Club, Pigeons and Planes, The 405, Radio.com, Noisey, Myspace, others) and help out at Consequence of Sound by directing Aux.Out.

Also plans to retire at 65? That’s cute.

Photoshop, the belief goes, takes a true record of a moment and turns it into an oppressive lie.

But fuck Photoshop. Photos are already lies.

I’m a former model and current artist. I’ve learned this every second I’ve stared into the camera’s insect eye.

Anyone who’s been at a photo shoot knows that even untouched photos bear only the scantest resemblance to a subject. A photo is frozen. A model sweats and bloats, ages, and dies. Framing is a lie. Lighting is a lie. Cropping is a lie. When you suck in your stomach, or turn your head so the light washes out your laugh lines, you’re lying as much as any liquefy tool. Untruth is baked into the process: Photographer Syreeta McFadden writes how the chemical makeup of some films is biased against dark skin tones. Even snapshots often don’t look like you, because you are not static. You are a three-dimensional being, torn by time. Photos are pixel ghosts.

Perhaps the most interesting thing about the entire bro phenomenon is the fact that it give a name to a conception of male sexuality that has in the past not needed any sort of label. The very existence of the “bro” descriptor for people who in the past would just be described as “men” is a demonstration that masculinity is more scrutinized than it used to be.
There’s recently been a well-documented crisis in masculinity, something that’s been exacerbated by the decline of traditional male jobs — work based in physicality that has been outsourced or automated. At the same time, a lot of traditionally male-dominated white-collar professions are proving to be ones at which women are just as good at as men, if not better. The result is a fundamental shift in the way that men who define themselves as men first and foremost (as opposed to, y’know, humans) see one another. 
The reaction to this shift has manifested in plenty of different ways. It’s not all negative: most men have perfectly healthy relationships with the opposite sex, and with those who don’t share their preferences, and don’t need to be taught to treat those people with respect and egalitarianism. But there’s always a minority who don’t. 

The Bro — and Our Obsession With Him — Is a Symptom of Masculinity in Crisis

By me. I find contemporary masculinity really fascinating to write about.
