ELITE GYMNASTICS - NEU! '92

Health insurance rip off lying FDA big bankers buying
Fake computer crashes dining
Cloning while they're multiplying
Fashion shoots with Beck and Hanson
Courtney Love, and Marilyn Manson
You're all fakes
Run to your mansions
Come around
We'll kick your ass in

i've been reading the curiouscat a lot and even spent some time in the discord lol

"black pill skyline" works so much better than i'd think it would if someone just told me about it conceptually

didn't really remember it in the OG version of sophie, but the way he sings that last line of the verses is so damn good. "ooooh like it was nothin."

this pitchfork review is actually great

on Black Pill Skyline: I see he's citing Dylan but what immediately came to mind is I'm Wide Awake It's Morning (for the vocals), and in particular Lua (for the lyrics).

From like 2004 to 2006 he was an early board republican and comic book nerd and then at some point he wrote a lot of long entertaining posts about doing blow in Minneapolis and he then did RUIN. And then he dated Grimes. Not a bad arc all told.

reading j brooks posts from like 2011 was one of the big reasons I ended up boarding here. That curiouscat q&a kind of reminded me of that and it''s refreshing hear that voice again kind of rescuing some of the better ideas and stuff from that time, copyright violation and experimentation and sampling

Yea he was always a good poster, someone you always read even if or when he was being annoying or melodramatic. It's not really a stretch to think of DG as based on the proposition What if Good Posts were Songs. In one sense this is very literal since Postcard from a Minneapolis Scammer felt like reading a JB post. But as other people and probably he I think have said, the music itself is grounded in a kind of Free For All pre-corporate internet ethos

i will say that i have fallen into the trap of thinking about this album in the context of their relationship, but i ultimately decided that's not fair. like nobody knows anything about the interior of that relationship and anyway writing breakup songs doesn't necessarily mean you're heartbroken.

i do agree that grimes stuff sucks these days lol
