Yesterday while ubin I was playing my Top 210 and then some of the 2010's playlist. "UGH" by The 1975 came on and some chick in the backseat goes "do you like The 1975?"
I was having a v shitty day, getting in my own head about literally everything (yay anxiety!), wishing I knew where tf my Ray Bans were so I could use them to hide tears lolol. I easily could've lashed out and been a smart ass, low key dick (I'm a 4.90 I can afford it) and said something like ... "ummm, obviously why else would I play them in my Top 210 and then some of the 2010's list?" but I didn't; hashtag good guy. Instead I was like "omggg, I loveeeeeeeee the 1975; they're one of my favorite bands." As we continued to talk music and our favorite artists, of course Tame Impala came up.

Today on my recharge day I was doing one of my favorite activities; playing video games while watching something on my laptop because you can never spend too much time in front of screens. I've been doing it for at least five years (used to be with my iPad R.I.P.) to keep the ole noodle super stimulated/there's only so many hours in the day. I was playing 2K the entire time I rewatched Scrubs. Currently debating whether or not I'm going to subject myself to the 9th season again.
While kicking the shit out of the computer on pro, I came across an acoustic version of Tame Impala's "On Track". Tame Impala acoustic????? That's like an acoustic computer, but damnit if this isn't fantastic.
Tame's sound is anything, but stripped down. So it's super cool to get something like this from Kevin Parker. I'm still not convinced there's isn't some sort of effect on his voice, but this is still unlike anything else he's put out in the last 10 years according to 20 seconds of youtube research.
I was so blown away by this song that I just had to blog it. If I wanna make it I can spend 2 hours (because I'm laptop SUCKS) writing a quicky on my recharge day. What good is tweeting a link to youtube with zero commentary like I was about to do?
It's wild this song was not written during C, it totally feels like it could be given the lyrical content. Talk about a powermove by waiting until it's nearly August to drop this.
I've been stressing a lot late, beating myself up, but it's important to remember I'm still on track. Hopefully we all are. We are in control of a lot more than we may realize. Music is my escape and even though this is like 4 days old I find it v fitting I came across it today when I really needed it. I let out a breath and took this in like some O. It's so simple and easy to forget, but it really is so huge to just take a step back and breathe like a lunie for a second to get a grip. Listen to this. Really listen. It sure has been a slow year with three months inside with nothing much to show here...but at the same time there is a lot to show here. Hopefully some positive changes come from all the issues that 2020 has Clockwork Orange-d into our daily consciousness. Like another one of my faves, Florence (and nobody else ever in the history of humanity) once said "It's always darkest before the dawn."
Now back to my regularly scheduled programming. Really didn't want to draft Kyrie, but I was hamstrung.
