2020.11.22 00:08 spiderNPR [NF] The Bevis Fire

When I was two, there was a fire at 731 Bevis Road. The pictures are on my bookshelf. A blonde bowl-cut in jean shorts watches in the white heat of the summer sun as a firefighter hoses down a cloud of grey smoke from his crow’s nest. There is no chimney on the Bevis house for the smoke to come out of. Plus, Daniel told me there was a fire here when I moved in 20 years later.
The bowl cut is not my brother but I like to imagine he is. That’s what he was like in pictures from back then-- blonde with a Doctor Octopus haircut. Nick and I share the same body but 8 years apart. And if there’s a question of who’s who in a family picture and there’s no alarm clock orange time stamp, you can look at the eyes to tell the difference. My brother’s eyes were mischievous, a little evil, thinking, scheming, and mine were, well, not.
Nick was a troublemaker and a rough houser. I was rough, but like, on accident. Mad scientist that I was, I once broke my Nick’s Playstation because I thought that, if I put multiple discs in at once, I would be able to play one game with another game’s characters. After all, you could do this with Sonic and Knuckles and Sonic 3. But it wasn’t so much the multiple discs that broke the Playstation as it was me jumping on the console because the lid wouldn’t shut. I can’t remember if he was mad, but I know we didn’t have a Playstation again until our twenty-something cousin got a new one or went on active duty in Iraq or something. Plus, it was an honest-to-God accident.
My sister broke his face on purpose once. They were playing badminton under the watch of my grandmother when she hit him with her racket. He had been taunting her, or so the story goes. She had had enough and clobbered the little man. “That’s what you get,” my mom said Nick would say when he was an even younger boy and he had enacted revenge, as I’m told he often did. My mother would revel, I could tell even when I was 10, in the apparent irony when she told me the tale years later.
My mother and brother-- that’s something. The year he spent at his other friend Jason’s house was the year she called him “The Brat”. She missed him, I think, and she called him “The Brat”. “Comatose” was her favorite word in 2006, the summer after The Brat’s freshman year in college. I think he was depressed. Lazy, I think she thought. They found an empty bottle of Cobra malt liquor in his room that summer. I heard my mom say some stuff about porn. I didn’t really want to listen; it wasn’t my business, you know? But I couldn’t just not be in the family van at the same time as my parents, and she couldn’t just not somehow be angry at my dad for what they’d found in my brother’s room.
A house divided, I could not stand. But it did indeed. I hear George Costanza say, “I’m the result of my parents having stayed together,” and Tom Delong sing the lyrics to “Stay Together for The Kids” at the same time. But I think my parents love each other, I really do. And I know they love me and my siblings too-- me and Whitney and Nick and Drew. And they definitely love the grandkids. I know that for sure.
What was happening in the Bevis house when the fire happened? Your guess is as good as mine. All I have is the picture, and I’m not even sure I have that. Memory is a photocopy of a photocopy of a photo of a photo. My imagination is almost as good.
And I imagine they were just like us with a smaller house. I imagine they felt embarrassed, too, when their dad thought simply pointing at green paper plates and saying, “Shrek plates” was a cam-corder-worthy event. I imagine they weren’t sure whether their mom was whispering or whether she had stopped talking mid-prayer when it was bedtime. I imagine the cognitive dissonance they witnessed in every adult they knew was confusing and infuriating. I imagine they loved when their mother read The Chronicles of Narnia to them, but they were too cool to admit it.
But where would they go when it was all too much? Was I just a thousand square feet away from arson? What would I have done without the coat rack in the unfinished side of the basement? Where would I have said my curses? Where would I have prayed for the death of certain family members with little conviction and less remorse? I think the backyard apocalypse dream would have been the same. Before Daniel moved out, he yoinked the benches from the newly foreclosed Applebees down the street. I think the dream would have been the same-- flaming Star-Wars-styled credits emblazoned in the sky and all-- but the Applebees benches would have been in it. And the fire pit that I bought from Home Depot would be there, too. Before I let it sit in the rain and it rusted and sprouted foliage, of course. A photocopy of a photocopy of a photo of a photo.
What was it like in the happy times? The times when they’d wake up to the sound of butter popping on the stove instead of a blender or a vacuum cleaner or deafening marital strife. When it was the day after Thanksgiving and they had a whole day of flat Sprite and Halo 2 and Christmas tree decorating ahead of them. Did the close quarters make it better? Where there times when they all wanted to watch the same thing on TV? Did the smell of popcorn fill the whole house instead of just the kitchen?
Johnny tells me the neighbor said it was a curling iron left on too long in the upstairs bathroom that caused the fire, but I choose not to believe him. What does the neighbor know? Memory is a photocopy of a photocopy of a photo of a photo. My imagination is better.

2020.11.21 00:21 discountErasmus Absolute gold from Twitter

Below is a transcribed tweet thread from the Twitter user @KLobstar. It starts off slowly, but this is the best genuine Kevin sighting I've seen in the wild for years. Enjoy:
when i was a movie theatre projectionist, the other projectionist, Matt, would bring clam chowder for lunch every single day, refusing to put it in the fridge even though the projection hallway was well over 100°
Matt once got into an argument with another employee so fierce that the off-duty cop who was doing security had to break them up all because Matt had established that 50 Cent's "Get Rich or Die Trying" movie was based on Hamlet (it wasn't)
Matt's favorite thing to do (after seeing FIGHT CLUB) was cut a single frame of a titty into kids movies at a random spot and not tell anyone, so the rest of us projectionists would have to wait until he left for the day then run the entire film to find and cut the frame back out
Concessions would put all the excess popcorn into massive bags at night and give them out to employees. Matt would take as much as he could, hiding them in the loading dock. One day he full-speed crashed his truck into the loading dock trying to pick up the secreted away popcorn
Matt was splicing "CARS" reels together one night, and spliced it wrong, leaving it off-center by millimeters. Then he let it run to spool up for the next show and went home. When when we came back in the morning, it was so badly damaged Disney sent insurance investigators to us
When asked by investigators about the CARS mishap, Matt said that he clocked out but didn't go home, instead watching Anime in the Manager's Office until 3am, "since its the only place with a DVD player and TV" and admitted to making a copy of the manager key on his lunch break
our movie theatre had to sign an insurance rider to be allowed to play Evil Dead because our track record was so bad, and Matt wasn't allowed to be near the machine-- we had to rope it off and keep track of him
Management moved Matt to being an usher, where he used a backpack vacuum on the movie screen, ripping a hole in it. The theatre did not have backpack vacuums, he brought his own.
Matt told me a long story about how he had joined the Navy and "it didn't work out" so he joined the Army and in basic training a Drill Sergeant said, and I quote "Matthew, you're too smart for the Army, I'm kicking you out"
Matt asked if I wanted to hang out one day, and not wanting to die by his hand, I said sure. We ended up at his "apartment" which was his parents basement, where he asked me to rap like Bill Clinton on the album he was recording.
Matt handed me some of his lyrics, and they were about the Yakuza, the Japanese gangsters-- he was not Japanese and had never been there-- and then asked if I wanted to watch the anime "Fruits Basket" (???) to "get in the zone" before rapping.... about the Yakuza
the next day he told me how awesome it was to have me on his album (I didn't record anything ???) and that "Kimiko" loved having me there-- turns out Kimiko was his girlfriend, a very clearly hispanic woman who spoke only spanish. Matt did not speak spanish.
One time Matt got into an argument with the manager of the comic book/game store in the mall the movie theatre was attached to-- he then proceeded to challenge the manager to a duel, and the manager, being a former Marine, accepted immediately and produced the handgun he carried
Matt spent the next two days in the projection hallway, a) worried he was going to die because he didn't own a gun, b) lamented that his "karate" wasn't good enough (he didn't know karate), and c) cried because there was "no where else to buy Magic Cards" (there was)
In preparation for his duel with the game store Marine, Matt asked me where to get a gun, me being a high school nerd who was too afraid to speak to a girl, thinking somehow I knew where to get a burner pistol
Instead of shooting him dead, the Marine banned Matt from the store, so Matt then picketed with a sign (alone) outside the store in the atrium of the mall every day until mall management told him he was banned from the mall. Matt then had to use the loading dock to get into work.
the theatre used to show movie series as an event, like Star Wars or Lord of the Rings, and Management had to put a sign up in the break room and hallways that said "Matt isn't allowed to speak about [Star Wars]" and the sign would change based on the movie series being shown
Since he had destroyed his truck on the loading dock, Matt spent his life's savings on souping up a Pontiac G6 to look like the Batmobile. He decided to do the work himself, and because he was not a mechanic, the body kit came off on the highway and he crashed, totaling the car
When 50 Cent's "Get Rich or Die Trying" came out, the movie theatre got a pallet of promotional materials-- Matt stole as much of it as he could and tried selling it on eBay, but come to find out, no one gave a shit about "Get Rich or Die Trying" so he brought it all back
Ushers were allowed to keep (some) stuff found under the seats as long as no one came to claim it within 30 days-- eventually we realized Matt was stealing from the Target next door and putting things below seats to "find them" because to him "it's not illegal stuff then anymore"
Matt would spend his lunch breaks in the game room playing Dance Dance Revolution, and got in trouble one day after he easily beat the 10 year old at Dance Dance Revolution then loudly called him a "bitch" -- the kid didn't even do anything, Matt just roasted him for nothing
The theatre ran an event in 2006 to raise money for the children's hospital, playing Smash Brothers on the big screen. Matt went out and bought an expensive custom pro-gamer level Gamecube controller, paid his $10 entry fee donation, and was beaten in the first round in seconds
Some at the theatre weren't allowed to dress up in costumes for Halloween as it was too dangerous (a 120° projection hall where no one could see your costume, for example). One halloween Matt showed up in a movie-quality Stormtrooper costume and passed out immediately in the heat
Matt got suspended from the projectionist job after destroying the copy of CARS, so they put him in the ticket booth, where he held the record for the fastest firing when he convinced an old woman to see "Hostel" instead of "Last Holiday
Matt would sell single frames cut from the previews reels on eBay, claiming that they were original frames from the first run of the movie and forging the certification documents. According to him he made $30,000 a year doing this and it was "not illegal at all" (it was)
When he was working concessions, Matt would berate and insult people's food choices, which none of the Management stopped because people would buy more in the hopes Matt would shut the hell up for a few minutes
An older woman fell down in one of the auditoriums and couldn't get up, so instead of calling 911 or using the radio every usher was given, Matt ran full speed across building screaming "MEDICAL! MEDICAL!" only for the woman to be fine, and it was Matt who wouldn't let her get up
on days when Matt wouldn't bring lukewarm chowder for lunch he would order from the Papa Gino's pizza that was in the mall, and because he was banned from the mall for threatening and picketing the game store, he had to pay to have it walked across the mall and delivered to him
The theatre would host kids parties-- one day there were too many parties scheduled and not enough party staff, so my manager asked me and Matt to do a kids HALO themed birthday, and the family asked for a refund because Matt kept arguing with the kid about HALO and Master Chief
Matt showed up to work once wearing a chainmail top under his work polo and when asked why, he said that he didn't want to be late for work- i asked why he didn't just take it off now that he was here and he stomped away then spent the whole shift making jingly noises as he moved
The first time I saw Matt cry was when the bulb burst on the projector playing "Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy" and in despair he openly wailed as he tried to explain to me that people NEED to see it, ignoring that we still needed to fix the bulb (still on fire) in the machine
When Matt worked in concessions he figured out a way to "cook frozen chicken tenders faster" which was to keep them in the bag and to poke a hole to vent the air-- the bag promptly caught fire- a fire he didn't notice until the timer went off and he opened an oven full of flames
When the Target store attached to the mall caught him stealing, he was banned from the store and instead of picketing outside like he had done with the game store, he devised a plan to trick them into letting him back in which amounted to buying a red shirt and walking in
Matt's two brothers worked with us, one a PhD in Anthropology who was waiting for a teaching job, and another who was a long haired musician just wanting to be left alone. They stopped driving to work together when Matt nearly drove them off the road arguing about Metallica.
Matt was really into the band RUSH, which I had never heard of, and I made the mistake of asking him about them. After an entire shift I had heard more facts about RUSH than I had wanted or needed, and Matt had become so incensed he was playing air guitar instead of working
One day Matt's girlfriend Kimiko came by to drop off his chowder and even though it wasnt allowed, he let her come up into projection Kimiko stayed the entire shift and spent the whole 12 hours standing silently at the viewing window watching "Over the Hedge" over and over
when Kingdom of Heaven came out, a medieval war movie starring Orlando Bloom, Matt showed up with friends in chainmail and a shield/sword and missed getting arrested for carrying a sword in public only because he convinced the cops it was a promotion for the theatre (it wasn't)
In winter, Matt had gotten another car, an old front wheel drive Buick or something, and since it skidded a lot one of our older ushers mentioned putting bricks in the trunk for weight, Matt didn't have any bricks, so he filled the trunk with sand. not in bags, just like... sand
the theatre was built fast and not well made, so there was always some repair that needed to be done- No one asked him to, but Matt would to do these "repairs". One morning we came into work and he had drilled a hole in the projection office door "to see out of... just in case"
when we ran trilogies/events, people would get dressed up and stand in line, and Matt would walk through the crowd DURING HIS SHIFT to critique their costumes and provide unsolicited advice, and when he was told he would be fired if he kept doing it, he would come on his days off
Matt had a big heart, he really did. We had a big opening, I don't remember which-- but there's a huge line and chaos, and though they didn't schedule Matt for work that day, he showed up knowing we needed help. Unfortunately, however, Matt showed up the day AFTER the premiere.
Matt loved swords and knives so much, man- like he would spend his free time talking to me about swords and sword accessories, and would quiz me on like what the deadliest sword was and berate me for being an idiot when I didn’t know it was a scimitar (?????)
Matt would spend a shift telling me random facts about things, but I didn’t have a smart phone in 2006 so I just had to listen to him tell me wild shit like “blue whales speak German” or “Did you know if you fire a gun into a bank it’s technically not illegal” (they don’t; it is)
Matt refused to call himself a medieval LARPer, he instead kept referring to it as “my hobby” or “training” but would never explain what he was “training for” he would just say “you never know when you’re gonna need it” (“it” was swordsmanship skills)
Matt would also reference his skills as a “hacker” whenever computers came up and how it was so cool, like a scene from The Matrix, in that he would say “it’s just like in The Matrix” but what he really meant was that he would guess friends passwords and post on their MySpace
Matt was convinced that if you record a movie from the projection window, as long as you do it in small parts and not one long recording it’s fine (its not). When the management found out about this, every employee was required to sign a sheet acknowledging that it’s not ok
Matt used to harass the FedEx guys about "getting a real job" even though he and I made minimum wage at $5.15, until one day the FedEx manager sent him a letter accusing him of harassment, and the theatre had to ban him from accepting film dropoffs
When “Hostel” came out it was a big deal, the media and parents went out of their way to demonize it, and we had to keep track of people’s ages entering the auditorium it was shown in. Matt couldn’t be trusted with this because he would let kids in to the movie to “toughen up”
In a moment of rage, Matt broke the projection office chair, and getting another one would have been impossible, so he spent two hours “repairing” it with the small toolset we had for the projectors, and when he sat down it collapsed further, sending him into the wall of reels
when King Kong was delivered, it was so much film it required a second platter to sit on, so you had to spool it from one to the other using a tall stick with a roller on the top, Matt stood there and watched the film silently on the stick instead of on the screen it was on
Matt used to crush Red Bull as often as he could, but then he would get the shakes real bad, and one time while handing a woman her family’s entire order of chicken and personal pizzas he instead just sort of flung it at her, hitting her square in the chest harder than ever
we had just one real manager and two teenage assistant managers, so it was easier to cover up screw ups rather than to try and fix them, I remember I cut a movie out of order, so Matt was like “I’ll fix it” and instead of fixing it he just ran different previews for 20 minutes

There's some really nice beats on there (exp; Play For Keeps, No Hook) but hell, tracy's lyrics, flows and melodies are not doing it for me this time. I do respect him for actually creating product though.
Songs that I find áctual vibes: Alex McQueen, God Knows, Heart, Jealousy, This Year, I remember, Pictures, Filet Mignon, Drunk Punx, Bad For You, Halo
Art consumption is subjective anyways but apparently I had to get this out of my system lol.

2020.11.11 22:34 sonickarma Every Metallica Song Ranked - Tier One: "The Cream Of The Crop"

Please keep in mind that any comment I make about these songs when I post my rankings is solely within the context of Metallica's music. Even the worst of Metallica's songs are better than 90% of all other music out there. Also, the exact numerical placement of each song isn’t as important as the tier that they’re placed in.

Nothing else Matters 22). Moth Into Flame
Today’s tier:

TIER ONE: THE CREAM OF THE CROP. These songs are, simply put, the best of the best that Metallica has to offer. Any one of these songs could have a legitimate argument to being #1 and you wouldn't hear an argument from me.

  • 21. The Unforgiven II
Why it's in the top tier: My favorite song from Reload, I find The Unforgiven II to be a wonderful sequel to its predecessor. It features just the right amount of callbacks to tie it in with the first one, but is just different enough to set it apart. Unforgiven 2 is definitely one of James's best works, lyrically. While it borders on being a love song, the lyrics are still incredibly powerful (especially in the chorus - "Turn the pages, turn the stone"). It just hits me in all the right feels.
  • 20. Hero Of The Day
Why it's in the top tier: This song takes me on a journey. I love the calming, melodic intro, the more energetic parts of the verses and choruses, concluding with the bombastic bridge and outro. Lyrically, it's very strong. I've read multiple interpretations of the lyrics, but the one I've always settled on was a military veteran who is haunted by flashbacks of his experiences in war, more specifically when he was captured and tortured by the enemy (hence the line "Mama, they try and break me"). Simply a brilliant song.
  • 19. The Four Horsemen
Why it's in the top tier: Easily the best, most mature song from Kill 'Em All. Not only does it feature their youthful energy and brashness, but we also get to see a hint of the focus and direction that future Metallica songs would take. It features three or four distinct sections that all flow seamlessly from one to the next. I'm particularly a fan of the slower, more melodic section put in the middle to separate it from Mechanix (which sucks, I don't care what anyone says).
  • 18. Ride The Lightning
Why it's in the top tier: This was definitely one of the signs that Metallica's songwriting had matured from their first album to their second. The melodies, the arrangement, the lyrics - all huge improvements over anything they had written previously. Cliff's classical influence over the rest of the guys is evident, especially in the longer instrumental passages.
  • 17. Creeping Death
Why it's in the top tier: DIE! DIE! DIE! DIE!
Honestly, what else needs to be said about it?
  • 16. Battery
Why it's in the top tier: Much like Ride The Lightning did with Fight Fire With Fire, Master Of Puppets is kicked off with a brutal thrasher that has a soft, acoustic intro. However, just as FFWF marked a huge step forward in their writing, with Battery it reached yet another level. It has the speed of FFWF, but never had Metallica attained this level of precision to go along with the unrelenting speed.
  • 15. Dyers Eve
Why it's in the top tier: What a hell of a way to close out a great album. Along with The Call Of Ktulu, this may be the best bookend to an album that Metallica has released so far. One of the last songs that they wrote that was pure, unchecked aggression at blistering speeds. And all of those angsty teenagers who want to write songs about how much their parents suck should use this song as their template. James' lyrics are damning, but never petulant or whiny.
Dear mother, dear father You clipped my wings before I learnt to fly Unspoiled, unspoken I've outgrown that fucking lullaby Same thing I've always heard from you Do as I say, not as I do
This song also features what may be my singular favorite moment from any Metallica song - that riff right after Kirk's solo. Crank that shit up to 12 and stick it directly in my veins.
  • 14. The Judas Kiss
Why it's in the top tier: I think that this song could have been released on Master Of Puppets or ...And Justice For All and it would have fit right in. It has everything that we come to expect from a "classic" Metallica song: it's long, it has heavy ass riffs, many tempo and time signature changes, creative & thought provoking lyrics, awesome guitar solos - it's all there. I get goosebumps every time I hear this song.
  • 13. The Unforgiven
Why it's in the top tier: Here, Metallica continued their trend of having the 4th song of the album be a more ballad-esque type song. However, with The Unforgiven, they changed the game. Normally the songs all had been following a similar format - a soft, clean/acoustic intro and verses, followed by powerful choruses and epic second halves/endings. With TU, however, they opted to have powerful verses followed by soft choruses, and a softer outtro - and that decision paid off big time. There's a lot that is great about this song - the orchestrations, James's lyrics - but to me, the standout feature of this song is Kirk's solo. Here's a cool video showing the writing/recording process of it. It is definitely up there among some of the greatest solos ever written, in my book.
  • 12. Shortest Straw
Why it's in the top tier: James's lyrical prowess is on full display here, as this song takes on the unusual topic of being blacklisted. Instrumentally, it's top notch Metallica. Lots of time changes and syncopated rhythms create a feel that's driving and unrelenting, and at the same time kind of makes you feel uneasy. Also worth mentioning is Kirk's solo, which I believe to be the best on the album. My favorite part of this song is the volume swell just before the final verse - it never fails to pump me up.
  • 11. The Unnamed Feeling
Why it's in the top tier: Unlike every other Metallica song I can think of, there is no real rhyme scheme to the lyrics of this song to speak of; it's just James pouring his heart out. You can really tell how deep he went when writing this one, especially by the emotion in his voice when he sings. It's a uniquely dark song in Metallica's catalogue, and I just can't stop coming back to it.
  • 10. All Nightmare Long
Why it's in the top tier: Man, this song is a monster. Following in the steps of famous "track 5's" such as Trapped Under Ice and Disposable Heroes, All Nightmare long is a brutal slap in the face after the more melodic tune that came before it, and is pretty much the epitome of what I was hoping for on this album. Instrumentally, ANL is top notch. Traditionally, whenever Metallica has dropped down to D tuning, they've been slower paced head bangers. With ANL they put the pedal to the metal and never let up. Throw in a few tempo and meter changes here and there, and what you get is one of the most badass Metallica songs to date.
  • 9. Sad But True
Why it's in the top tier: Definitely one of Metallica's heaviest songs to date (if not their heaviest). Unlike Enter Sandman, which can lose its initial appeal due to being overplayed, this song never really seems to get any less badass. Sad But True marks as only the second time that Metallica had dropped below standard E tuning (up until that point). Even though the song is at a noticeably slower pace than we were used to hearing from them, Sad But True never lets up.
  • 8. ...And Justice For All
Why it's in the top tier: This might be the peak of James's lyrical prowess. The first verse is probably my favorite lyrical stanza that he's written to date:
Halls of justice painted green, money talking Power wolves beset your door, hear them stalking Soon you'll please their appetite, they devour Hammer of justice crushes you, overpower
The riffs aren't as complicated as other songs on this album, but they're still aggressive and full of energy, and serve the song perfectly.
  • 7. Blackened
Why it's in the top tier: This song is just brutal. After the swelling introduction (which was actually recorded backwards), it explodes and demands your full attention. Blackened is so fucking great. The time/tempo changes, James's brutal lyrics, everything. In my mind, it's easily the best album opener Metallica has written. Props to Jason for writing such a killer fucking riff.
  • 6. The God That Failed:
Why it's in the top tier: Lyrically, I find it to be James's best work on The Black Album. Here's an interview with James where he talks about why this is such a personal song to him (interview starts at about 2:10). Instrumentally it's also top-notch. It's slower than most of their songs, but it has some serious balls to it. Kickass bass intro, awesome riffing, and a great solo section. What more could you ask for from a Metallica song? 10/10
  • 5. The Call Of Ktulu
Why it's in the top tier: Because it's fucking amazing. Everything about this song is awesome, from the ominous intro, to Cliff's screaming wah throughout the first section, the rising tension leading up to Kirk's epic solo, and the grand finale at the end. It never gets old for me.
  • 4. Orion
Why it's in the top tier: While Anesthesia may have caused Cliff to explode on the scene, but Orion will always be his legacy. The entire song is legendary, but the middle section is nothing short of perfection. The bassline, the harmonies, the solos... simply sublime.
  • 3. Fade To Black
Why it's in the top tier: This song would lay the groundwork for most of what I personally would define as their "signature sound", and other songs in similar veins (Sanitarium, One, Unforgiven, and The Day That Never Comes - usually track #4 of their respective albums) would follow in its footsteps. This was the first time that we got a glimpse inside of James, where he let his guard down, and it's excellent. One thing that's unique about this song is that the choruses don't feature any lyrics, and somehow it makes it even more powerful. Kirk's outro solo is a gut punch.
  • 2. One
Why it's in the top tier: There's really not much else to say about this song that hasn't been said a million times before. It's practically the perfect Metallica song at every level. The "Darkness/Imprisoning me" section, to this day, always makes the hair on the back of my neck stand up.
  • 1. Master Of Puppets
Why it's the top Metallica song: #DUN... DUN DUN DUUUUUUN!!!
What else needs to be said? Everyone knows this song, and most people (myself included) consider it to be the shining example of Metallica in their prime, at the height of their powers. All of the elements of this song are 100% top notch Metallica: the lyrics, the riffing, the composition, the solos - everything.
It kicks off with what could be described as the most anthemic opening phrase since Beethoven's 5th Symphony. Who knew that such an epic riff could be made out of a simple descending chromatic scale? Well, Metallica apparently did, and it paid off in a big way. It follows in the steps of Ride The Lightning, in which the title track would be the second on the CD (and would be done again on ...And Justice For All and St. Anger). I find it to be their best-written song as well - lightning fast riffs, awesome meter changes (who doesn't love those random bars of 5/8 thrown in there?), a great melodic middle section harkening back to "The Four Horsemen", except executed in a much better way. If I could only listen to one Metallica song for the rest of my life, this would be it.
Well, that’s it! Thanks for riding along - it was a lot of fun putting this together.

Please keep in mind that any comment I make about these songs when I post my rankings is solely within the context of Metallica's music. Even the worst of Metallica's songs are better than 90% of all other music out there. Also, the exact numerical placement of each song isn’t as important as the tier that they’re placed in. On any given day, a song might be a few places higher or lower depending on my mood. This is all in good fun, I'm not looking to hurt any feelings here.

If you want to read about my methods for compiling this list, it’s all explained in the intro post here.

Today’s tier:

TIER TWO: THE HALL OF VERY GOOD. Many of these songs are either my favorite or second favorite from their respective albums. These are the songs that while being incredible and amazing as they are (which they all are), fall juuuuuust short of truly being among their very best, for whatever reason.

  • 39. Until It Sleeps
What I like about this song: There are a lot of little, subtle things that really make this song work the way it does. From (like I said) Jason's fretless bass, Kirk and James's guitar tones, Lars's surprisingly nimble snare work at times - all work together to make one of Metallica's more unique songs to date. I'm also a sucker for the subtle change in time signature to 6/4 for the choruses. Why it's not ranked higher: I'm not crazy about how Kirk's "guitar solo" (if you even wanna call it that) is executed on this song. His part is rather buried in the mix, not out in front like it should be.
  • 38. Wherever I May Roam
What I like about this song: This song just has a great vibe to it. I love how it builds up from the slower tempo of the intro to a faster paced song. There is some great riffing by James here, Kirk has a badass solo, and Jason actually shines quite a bit here - they stated how they wanted the drums and the bass to form a more "traditional" rhythm section on this album. Why it's not ranked higher: I'm going back to an answer that I've given a couple times. This song is amazing, the songs ahead of it are just better.
  • 37. Leper Messiah
What I like about this song: Leper Messiah is truly one of Metallica's most underrated songs, in my opinion. The riffs are fucking crushing, James's vocals may be the best on the album, and that's saying something. The pre-chorus sections - "Chain, chain/Join the endless chain" are my favorite parts of the song. Not to mention, Kirk's solo just fucking rips. Why it's not ranked higher: In comparison to songs in this tier and the one ahead of it, the chorus is just a tad weak. But this is just me being ridiculously nit-picky. I still love it.
  • 36. That Was Just Your Life
Before I get into my likes/dislikes of this song, I wanna tell a funny little anecdote about it. When Death Magnetic was released, I worked in a small, local music shop. One day I was playing one of the guitars (I had just put new strings on it) and I was playing the main riff to this song. A customer overheard me and said "Wow, that sounds exactly like old Metallica!" - to which I replied "That's funny, because this is new Metallica." He couldn't believe it.
What I like about this song: I love the ominous intro. To me, the heartbeat in the beginning was symbolic of a band that was coming back to life. The main riff of this song is brutal, James's barking vocals are on point, and the energy harkens back to songs like Battery and Blackened. **Why it's not ranked higher: It's a little bloated. Bits and pieces could have been trimmed off to make the song flow better.
  • 35. The Eye Of The Beholder
What I like about this song: James's lyrics are absolutely top notch here, touching on the idea of shrinking liberties and freedoms. Then of course, there's the time shift from 4/4 to 12/8 for the pre-chorus (Doesn't matter what you see...) and then back to 4/4 for the chorus, which might just be my favorite Metallica chorus ever. Why it's not ranked higher: While it's very diverse, rhythmically, it's not very diverse musically. It kind of hangs out in one area or another for the majority of the song, and it can kind of drag at times.
  • 34. Low Man's Lyric
What I like about this song: The lyrics. They perfectly describe a completely broken man. The call and response of "There's a dog at your back step/He must come in from the rain" and "So you bring this poor dog in from the rain/Though he just wants right back out again" is simply brilliant. I also love the hurdy gurdy featured at the beginning and end of this song. It's very powerful. Why it's not ranked higher: As brilliant as this song is, it does kind of drag at times. I'm not sure how it could be fixed in this song, but it's not paced very well.
  • 33. Invisible Kid
What I like about this song: I love the overall energy this song has. It's like a sonic bowling ball to me. It has some great riffs, I love James's vocal delivery, and the lyrics are great to sing along with. Why it's not ranked higher: It's a bit too long for its own good, and gets repetitive. Trimming out the "Ooooooh, what a good boy you are" part would help with maintaining the flow.
  • 32. Halo On Fire
What I like about this song: I love how James sings the first two verses. The way he changes his enunciation when he repeats the words is something we've never really heard from him before. I'm also a big fan of Kirk's lead work in this song, probably his best work on this album, especially his ending solo. That whole outtro section really reminds me of the epic ending to Freebird. I really wish it was longer! Why it's not ranked higher: I personally feel like this song could have been longer. Each section feels like it needs a little more time to fully flesh out its ideas. Just when each section feels like it gets good, the song moves to the next section. To me, as great as the individual sections and ideas in this song are, it doesn't quite feel like it has a complete identity of its own. Maybe it's the sudden shift in tone to the "Hello darkness/Say goodbye" part. This song feels like parts of 2 or 3 different songs that were kind of mashed together.
  • 31. The Day That Never Comes
What I like about this song: I love how the intro flips their usual "power ballad" formula on its head. Normally, on songs like Fade, Sanitarium, and One, the song starts off with James playing in the lower register of the guitar, and Kirk playing a lead in the upper register. On TDTNC, however, that's flip-flopped, and that gives it a very unique sound and feel for a Metallica song. It also has a hell of a finish. Why it's not ranked higher: It's very inconsistent as far as lyrical quality goes. This song showcases both how creative James can be with his lyrics ("I'll end this day/I'll splatter color on this gray") and how mediocre he can be ("Love is a four-letter word").
  • 30. The Frayed Ends Of Sanity
What I like about this song: Frayed Ends is probably their most musically complex song to date. Chock full of crazy time and tempo changes, this is about as close to progressive metal that Metallica ever ventured. While this song is packed with fucking awesome riffs and solos from James and Kirk, Lars once again really showed his prowess on this song (especially with what may be the greatest fill he ever wrote). Why it's not ranked higher: Lyrically, it's nothing special. They also went a little too far with the extended musical sections for what the song needed.
  • 29. Fixxxer
What I like about this song: It has a loose, groovy atmosphere that also rocks. The chorus of this song is fucking excellent, it's anthemic and fun to sing along with. Coupled with a powerful vocal performance from James (particularly in the outtro), Fixxxer is without a doubt one of their best album closers. Why it's not ranked higher: As great as this song is, there's not one real iconic moment that stands out to me. No incredible riff, solo, or lyric that separates it from the pack. It also feels a little artificially extended, like they wanted to recreate another Outlaw Torn for Reload.
  • 28. For Whom The Bell Tolls
What I like about this song: Obviously, Cliff's bass intro is iconic. Even though we hever hear it again, it completely sets the tone for the song to come. The main riff is a genuine ear worm that will get stuck in your head for days, James also did a great job of adapting part of the book as the basis for the lyrics. Why it's not ranked higher: There are times when I listen to this song and I wish it had more urgency to it. Maybe it's the half-time feel of the verses, with open, spacy power chords instead of incessant chugging, but aside from the intro and the chorus, there's not a whole lot of drive to this song.
  • 27. Seek & Destroy
What I like about this song: The main riff is one of the catchiest riffs that James has ever written. This song also shows what made Cliff so great, as his bass part doesn't exactly mirror the riff, but provides just enough contrast to keep it interesting. I love the double-time bridge section, too. Why it's not ranked higher: The lyrics really aren't anything special, and come across as a little immature to me. Again, it's not James's fault, as he was practically a teenager when he wrote this song, but they are what they are.
  • 26. Spit Out The Bone
What I like about this song: Spit Out The Bone, to me, is the most brutal, unflinching thrasher that they've written since Damage, Inc., and is hands down the best album closer they've written since Dyer's Eve. You could have placed this song in Master Of Puppets and it would have fit right in. Classic Metallica. Why it's not ranked higher: The instrumental bridge section drags, and I know exactly where the cut should have been made. The slow "breakdown" part that goes from 5:22-5:44 does nothing to the song but kill its momentum. Take that part out and the song would be just about perfect.
  • 25. Disposable Heroes
What I like about this song: I find this to be the lyrical highlight of Master Of Puppets. James' use of imagery creates a very vivid mental picture of a hellish landscape ravaged by war, experienced through the eyes of a lone soldier. And the iconic scream "I WAS BORN FOR DYYYIIIIING" might be the vocal highlight of James's career. It's fucking chill inducing. Why it's not ranked higher: While the music does a great job at creating atmosphere and complimenting James's superb lyrics, there's nothing about this song from a musical standpoint that really stands out to me, aside from its breakneck pace.
  • 24. King Nothing
What I like about this song: This song has one of the most bitching bass lines ever. It's like after AJFA they really wanted to give Jason more opportunities to shine on this album, which was a great choice. Everything about it is top notch hard rock. James's vocals are absolutely killer here, as are his lyrics. Just a groovy, hard-rocking song that never gets old for me. Why it's not ranked higher: Compositionally, it's almost an exact clone of Enter Sandman, and it's pretty obvious. The "off to never-never land..." at the very end almost seems like a tongue-in-cheek reference by James to this fact.
  • 23. Nothing Else Matters
What I like about this song: It's fucking gorgeous. The clean guitar tones are fucking perfect, James's clean vocals are amazing, I don't care what anyone says. And his solo at the end is the perfect climax for a song like this. The lyrics are great too, and I think that anyone who has ever been in a long-distance relationship can relate to them. Why it's not ranked higher: It's a little too long for its own good. I think the interlude after the second chorus kind of drags the song down, and could have easily been shortened. I also think the song should have just ended after James's solo, maybe repeating the intro one more time. We'd heard the chorus refrain enough times to get the picture.
  • 22. Moth Into Flame
What I like about this song: It's the quintessential Metallica single. It has all of the elements that makes Metallica the greatest metal band of all time, and they're all executed to near perfection - awesome, thrashy riffs, great melodic guitar harmonies, great lyrics by James, and some good double bass by Lars! The highlight of Moth to me is James's vocal delivery. The way he barks out the lyrics in the verses and pre-choruses, while having a more melodic sense in the choruses is just amazing. Why it's not ranked higher: Kirk's solo is pretty "meh". The choruses, while being fun to listen to, kind of bring the energy down a bit. The only thing that I would change is that I would make all of the verses the same length (or at least make the second verse the same length as the first). It bothers me when the first verse of a song is longer than all of the others. (This goes for pretty much any genre of music).

2020.11.08 21:42 tutetibiimperes Nugu Roundup #64 - Give me a HINT - 201108 + Album Giveaway

Hello and welcome to the latest Nugu Roundup!
What is this?: This is a weekly feature designed to highlight the unknown/underappreciated groups and soloists working hard in the Kpop world that often fall under the radar. Please share your own information, favorite performance videos, fanmeet stories, or anything else relevant below!
Last week we got to know the persevering guys of KNK . This week let's check out a girl group who's roots go back past a rebrand and who recently released a new single, let's get to know HINT!
Look at the first comment below for the winner of the eighteenth Nugu Roundup Album Giveaway, plus details on this week's album up for grabs!
What is Nugu?: While in Korean it literally means 'Who' in the broader Kpop context it refers to groups that are generally unknown amongst the greater public. It doesn't have to mean they're extremely new, though it can, and there are of course varying degrees of 'unknown' which some groups having very strong niche fandoms and others being almost invisible. I take a fairly broad view and will include groups that may be known to some, but who don't have widespread name recognition.
Let's get on with the show...
________________________________________________________
HINT
Who are they?: HINT is a five member girl group under Swan Media Entertainment (Formerly StarPro Entertainment). While HINT officially debuted in 2017 the groups roots go back to 2013 when several members originally debuted under the same company in a group called TURAN. Their name comes from "When people think about which girl group to be a fan of, we want our name to be a hint in the right direction" and also "When people face a problem, we want to be that light in the darkness that helps people out". Their fandom name is Answer.
Company: HINT appears to be the only group under Swan Media Entertainment. It's unclear if Swan Media is a renaming of StarPro Entertainment or if the old agency folded and the group was picked up by a new company (StarPro's website no longer appears to work).
Members
Debut: March 31st, 2017 with Tang Tang Tang (MV) Live Stage (Link) Dance Practice (Link)
First Comeback: January 3rd, 2018 with Walkie Talkie (MV) Live Stage (Link) Dance Practice (Link)

YouTube Channel: HINT Official
Random Stuff
Trivia: The group's long hiatus was due to COVID and working to change their concept according to the group. The group members all went to the bath house together and scrubbed each other to build camaraderie and make their skin beautiful before their most recent comeback. Cherry and Hyejin each have their own rooms in the dorms as the leader and oldest members, Arra and Haesol were originally roomates but Arra likes to play computer games late at night and keep the room dark so she moved into the living room as a courtesy to Haesol so now Haesol and Nael live together. Arra is very good at League of Legends and likes playing the support role. The group is now planning an online Untact Concert.

________________________________________________________
IN MEMORIAM
MASC
Who were they?: MASC was a 4-8 member boy group under J Planet Entertainment (home of new girl group LUNARSOLAR and soloist NC.A). Their name stood for 'Masculine' and their fandom was MaBling.
Debut: August 19th, 2016 with Strange (MV) Live Stage (Link)

Final Comeback: May 27th, 2019 with Maschera (MV) Live Performance (Link)
Active Between: August 19th, 2016 - October 18th, 2020
Reasons for Disbanding: The group announced that they would be moving on to take on new challenges individually. While the group had a promising beginning they never found the level of success that the company was likely looking for, and with incidents which occurred which set them back, an inability to perform live with the pandemic, plus new groups on the horizon it appears the company decided to cut the cord.
Trivia: Following their comeback with Do It an incident occurred where group member A.C.E physically assaulted fellow-member Chibin. After Chibin brought the incident to light with the public A.C.E left the group and company and Chibin later left as well citing mental trauma from the incident making it impossible for him to continue. Original member 26 and new member Doeun also left near this time, with 26 going into acting and Doeun citing personal reasons. The group continued to perform internationally following their final comeback, but due to travel and gathering restriction in 2020 due to COVID their opportunities dwindled. The group was apparently looking for another company to take them on but nothing materialized and thus they disbanded.
________________________________________________________
That's it for today, let's get the discussion on!
As always, if you have any suggestions for groups, content, or things you'd like to see, please let me know in the comments below.
Also as always, a big shout-out to u/not-named-in-credits for founding nugutown and u/sharnaranwan for continuing the work over there.

2020.11.08 09:24 Venomous9 [TOMT] [SONG] [2000s] Terrible parody of Midnight Oil's 'Beds Are Burning' by some prepubescent edgelord

This has been rattling around my head for at least ten years, and I feel like it's been completely purged from the internet at this point, but it surely hasn't.
At some point, I think between 2006 and 2010, some kid uploaded a recording of them singing a song in a terrible microphone to the tune of Midnight Oil's 'Beds Are Burning' with these really edgy lyrics. (The original song, for reference: https://youtu.be/ejorQVy3m8E)
The only other thing I can remember is that the pre-chorus started in exactly the same way as the original ('The time has come') and ended with 'to say they're gay'. I think the song was about some stupid online game slapfight or whatever, but I might be wrong.
Also, this is just an optional detail (the song alone is fine lmao) but I specifically remember hearing that song over some footage of Halo, or some other first-person shooter, recorded on a potato.
If you can help put this earworm to sleep, I'd really appreciate it.

2020.11.08 09:13 dheerse Looking for a 2010s indie song about death

I don't remember the lyrics or the exact tune (only that it was melancholic) but the "storyline" of the song was that the singer sat at his sick brother's bedside. The song describes the brother getting up with a halo above his head and his feet not touching the ground. As the brother leaves the room, the singer chases after him and wakes up in their front lawn where his mother tells him that his brother had died.
Any searches for songs about death etc. were fruitless so I really hope this song wasn't some feverdream.

2020.11.07 00:50 gray-matterz Some stats on how the silent e rule is so inconsistent!

Long and short a, e, i, o, u
Doubled consonants are supposed to show when the letters a, e, i, o, u in words of more than one syllable have a short sound, as in matter, hemmed, hidden, dotty, tubby, rather than long, as in mate, theme, hide, dote, tube. When followed by just one consonant, or several consonants and a vowel, a, e, i, o, u are meant to be 'closed' , with a short sound, as in: am, ample; ten, tender; pin, pinked; pond ponder; bun bunker.
When followed by a single consonant and a vowel, they are ‘open’ and meant to be long; male, halo; peter, period; fine, final; sole, solo; tube, tubular'.
If a stressed short vowel before a single consonant and another vowel is to be short, or is to stay short, it should be followed by a doubled consonant: allergy, petty, Finnish, dolly, butter.
Schoolchildren spend much time learning to apply this rule when adding suffixes to short words: cut + er → cutter, prefer + ed → preferred; but: cute + er→ cuter, enter +ed → entered.
Sadly, at least 1,700 words of more than one syllable disobey the ‘closed /short' - 'open / long’ vowel system in 5 ways: 1. At least 567 common words fail to double the consonant after a short, stressed vowel, e.g. 'habit, very, similar, body, study'. 2. 219 words have needlessly doubled consonants after unstressed vowels, e.g. 'account, terrific, immense, occur, hurrah', undermining their regular use, as in: accurate, terror, simmer, occupy, hurry. 3. Nearly 200 words end with a surplus –e: (give, promise – cf.spiv drive; surprise tennis). 4. Around 200 words have irregular spellings for a, e, i, o and u (plait, bread, pretty, cough, touch), sometimes with missing doubled consonants as well (many, women, sausage, money). 5. At least 665 words do not use the long vowel method, of 'male, mere, mile, mole, mule': 87 for long a (late - wait, straight, eight), 373 long e (eke – seek, speak, shriek) - [e-e is used just in 86 words], 79 long i (while - style, whilst, island, height), 100 long o (mole – bowl, roll, soul), 26 long u (use - youth, juice, feud, lewd, beauty, Tuesday). All common words affected by the five irregularities are shown below in the following order: 1) Omitted consonant doubling; 2) Needless consonant doubling; 3) Surplus -e endings; 4) Exceptions to a, e, i, o, u; 5) Exceptions to a-e, i-e, o-e, u-e and 459 unpredictable spellings for the /ee/ sound. The exceptions dilute the English 'long/short' system so much that hundreds of spellings simply have to be learned word by word, instead of being spelt systematically, like 'pal, pale, pallid'. They were made irregular mainly with careless changes to the original English spelling system and are now most responsible for making learning to write English exceptionally difficult and time-consuming. Most of them cause reading difficulties as well, not just spelling ones: e.g. hide, hidden – hideous; arrow - arrive (cf. arise); save - have; ouch - touch. --------------------------------------------------------------
1) Words of more than one syllable without doubled consonants after their short, stressed vowel (which undermine the 500+ words with doubling, e.g. cabbage, chicken, adder...).

Learning to read and write English could be made much easier by merely correcting some of the above irregularities which make it exceptionally difficult and time-consuming.

This is the only thing America excels at in comparison to Europe. Freedom of speech isn’t firm grounded in any European countries’ constitution; whenever they mention freedom of speech, they always allow for the exceptions to ban certain forms of speech, be it hate speech, xenophobia, holocaust denial, offending religious feelings or more. The most America bans is direct and real threats to violence, and shouting things which would cause massive public panic (think fire in a movie theatre).
Many countries have the propensity to abuse the regulations limiting free speech, and whenever there’s a massive event like this one, it gives government all the more power to abuse it.
It’s crazy some of the things I read about in Europe, [a woman in Austria was fined 500€ for calling Mohammed a pedophile]1 , one [UK court declared a woman committed a hate crime because she posted rap lyrics from a black author to her social media]2 , and [Poland arrested gay activists for showing a picture of Mary behind a rainbow]3
I think it’s a tragedy that governments can act this way.

2020.11.02 19:35 0verjoyed To the Sky Speculations - The Coin, Space Week, and More

To the Sky Speculations - The Coin, Space Week, and More
So Bastille has recently posted in an Instagram caption the hashtag #ToTheSky. "To the Sky" was a scrapped song from Doom Days, as you can see here. The band hasn't mentioned the tune since then (at least not that I know of), so when they utilized that hashtag yesterday, fans were rather alarmed, especially since the band has been routinely teasing new material in interviews and such.
This new era has largely revolved around the sky, such as the space scenes in the "WHAT YOU GONNA DO???" music video and the sky/falling scenes in the "survivin'" music video and lyric video, as well as the Vanilla Sky reference in "survivin'." With this in mind, perhaps this hashtag was just a cheeky reference to the scrapped tune since the sky has been such a prevalent theme in their latest single.
https://preview.redd.it/eoevhmkl3vw51.png?width=1656&format=png&auto=webp&s=40f15e0de5cbbfa2b9bc98e362638df9eca51e26
But many of us are speculating that "To the Sky" might see a second chance at life as being the next single. u/KatBless pointed out that the Space Week Distraction Tactics stream may have all been one big clue about "To the Sky." It did indeed hint at a few things about WYGD??? The graphics posted by the band seem to also resemble the outer space graphics seen in the WYGD??? music video. For the Space Week DT, each member of the band posted lists of their favorite space-themed films. On Will's list, he referred to himself as Big Bill. In the WYGD??? teasers and music video, we were met with the recurring Big Mouth Billy Bass. Hmm...
Notably, the Space Week stream, which took place on May 27th, featured NASA communications specialist Leah Cheshier. On October 9th, Leah posted this photo on her Instagram profile with the caption "It's all golden and bright." On October 8th, just the day before, Bastille posted this video to their profile with the caption "it's all golden and bright..." This video displays the mysterious survivin' coin spinning and then falling and settling on the table. What is interesting to note about this video is the fact that the falling man is for the most part pointing upward, towards the sky.
The survivin' coin posted on Instagram
So... awesome NASA Space Week lady + mysterious survivin' coin = possible connection? Yes, perhaps this was just a connection about survivin' and its constant theme about the sky, or maybe it's just a crazy coincidence, but maybe Bastille was hinting at the next thing down the line.
On the promotional posts for the Space Week DT, there were some odd symbols and numbers placed in the corners, as you can see here. On the top left corner, there is a string of numbers. On the bottom left corner, there are six different symbols. On the top right corner, there is a paragraph of text with miscellaneous numbers and math equations (?). On the bottom right corner, there is a bar graph with no context given as to what it represents.
None of these things have been explained. The symbols may be something that I'm just not familiar with, but I truly don't know. Really, it could just be design. But knowing Bastille, I think there might be something here that we haven't received context for yet.
The numbers, symbols, graph, and text
Let's break down the numbers first. If we take each group/section (distinguished by the periods) and add up all the digits within them, the sequence becomes 7.9.17.23.31. Notice how the numbers grow larger as the series progresses. Now if we take each section and count the amount of digits present, the sequence becomes 3.3.3.5.4. If we add these numbers together, the sum is 18. I'm definitely no math wiz, so I don't know how to further analyze these numbers. The series of 7.9.17.23.31 reminds me of those math questions where they would give you a string of numbers and you'd have to figure out what they all have in common. For example, add 2 and divide by 3 between numbers. I have no idea if I'm overthinking this or what, but the fact that the sequence seems so solid (they're also all odd numbers) makes me feel inclined to believe there might be something significant about them.
Now let's look at the six symbols. The top row has three symbols that look similar to one another. The difference between them is the number of lines that cut through the circles and the placement of the dots (probably meant to be stars). I'm not too into astronomy, but these almost look like star maps or indicators of some sort. The bottom row also has three symbols and I for real have no clue what they could mean lmao If you're into old Halo games or even Destiny, that's what these symbols remind me of lol
Next, let's talk about the text. Again, I'm not a mathematician, but I'm going to try and at least decipher this the best I can. The lines read:
  • Function (Array, N=1)
  • Const Length = Array == Null ?
  • [blank]
  • A>ray.Length
  • N = Length - Tointeger
  • Return Length ? Slice(Array, 0, N, 0
  • [blank]
  • [blank]
  • Sum (E = mc2)(.ARGS)
  • If (Length) FN - 25
  • Run
Basically, this appears to be a function equation, or f(x)=?. I nearly flunked out of math three times in high school and college, so I definitely don't remember most of this stuff, but there seems to potentially be a function graph. Or perhaps this is digital computer speak and I'm in way over my head. Or, again, maybe it's all nothing. Who knows!! If you're a mathlete or have any speculations as to how to make sense of this, drop it in the comments.
Now what about the unexplained bar graph? Well, maybe it has something to do with that math stuff or the numbers or whatever. Or maybe it's like different volumes on a stereo. Or perhaps... Hear me out on my wild theory. There are 10 bars. If you rotate the graph right 90°, it starts to look like a list. An album tracklist with the song titles marked out. Maybe the next album will have 10 songs on it? Or maybe I'm just really reaching here. I didn't sleep last night, okay lol

Now let's take a look at the actual post with #ToTheSky. The photo's location is set as Yorkshire Sculpture Park, an open-air art gallery in the UK. The photo is almost like an optical illusion: at first it seems like you may be looking straight ahead at a window with a view of the sky outside, but then it starts to look more like a boxy room with a sunroof-type window letting the light in (notice the light being cast on the wall to the right). Dan's caption is rather vague: "I guess it's the sky then." Well, what else would it be, Daniel? Or maybe he's not talking about the photo at all. Maybe he's hinting at the next single. The band seems to be rather free-flowing with their releases this year, so the caption almost sounds like a very casual way of saying, "I guess the next single is about the sky," or, "I guess this era's theme is the sky, then." Right?
Also, remember 3.3.3.5.4? Count the number of letters in Dan's caption. Guess = 5. Then = 4. It's = 3. The = 3. Sky = 3.
The sky or outer space is nothing new in Bastille songs. "Laura Palmer," "Icarus," "Durban Skies," "Pompeii," "Weight of Living, Pt. I," "Haunt," "Glory," "Lethargy (there's an Englishman up in space these days!)," "Nocturnal Creatures," etc.
But most notably "Four Walls (The Ballad of Perry Smith)." Look at the photo. "These four walls in Holcomb / To keep you from the sun." "There's no view from here, no view from here, no view from here / All you see's the sky / Clouds passing by, clouds passing by." If ever there was a photo to describe this imagery (storyline aside), it would be this.
\"I guess it's the sky then\"
To sum up this crazy post, maybe the coin has something to do with "To the Sky," and I've for sure spent too much time overthinking the Space Week graphics lol. And perhaps the photo has some relation to "Four Walls"? I suppose we'll just have to wait and see!
Let me know your theories and speculations in the comments!! I'd love to hear them :)

2020.10.30 19:52 prxsgyu Tomorrow x Together's The Dream Chapter: Magic Appreciation

TXT had their first comeback on 21st October, 2019. The comeback was delayed due to some health issues, but it was definitely worth the wait. This was their first regular album, with 8 tracks in total. The album's concept in general was to deal with the transition to adolescence, and continued with the story of Crown/Nap of A Star.
Track 1: New Rules: This song is in the perspective of a student, who is annoyed and stressed because of school and teachers and is in their rebellion phase, and thus, wants to become a "punk" and create new rules. Is there anything else I can relate to more than this?? I feel like this song could also fit really well as a OST of a money heist movie, and although they won't perform this on award shows now, probably, I really wish they did a money heist themed performance, something like Little Mix once did on their Woman Like Me performance at the Brits. However, this is my favourite performance of the song, and the basketball dance break was executed so well. Like all other txt choreos, this one was also flawless. New Rules is also a part of the superior 'first track' table, and became a song I was instantly attached to. Also, special mention to the whisper singing because that thing was absolutely breathtaking. Everything of this world is a forbidden fruit.

Track 2: 9 and Three Quarters (Run Away): My fellow Potterheads, where are you all at? I really thought I was over my Harry Potter phase, but then this song came and I was proven wrong. The ones that love us never really leave us. Anyway, this song continues from where Crown left off, and the boy with wings and the boy with the horns have gotten closer as they are tackling the obstacles of youth, and want to run away together by possibly taking The Hogwarts Express, but who knows. Also, one of the lyric is very very important to note, and that is: "Tell me yes, a 'no' is no." Yes, the concept of consent is as easy as this. This song is called " 9와 4분의 3 승강장에서 너를 기다려 ", which roughly translates to "Waiting for you at Platform 9 3/4", and it has left an insane number of idols breathless. Completely on brand. The choreography is here, and it featured a spoiler to Blue Hour (5:53 on the clock during Beomgyu's part). Also, let's not forget Yeonjun's "도망 갈까". I'd describe this as a trippy and whimsical song, with rock undertones and very youthful lyrics.

Track 3: Roller Coaster: This was the first time we saw a member on the credits, and it made us even more giddy when we realised that said member was Hueningkai, the youngest. If you notice, the song doesn't have a smooth-ish beat. It cuts off abruptly at some points, and builds up at some others. It leads us to have these weird feelings of nervousness versus hype, making us feel itchy, which is why they keep on chanting "so itchy" throughout. It tries to portray the feeling of riding a roller coaster through auditory imagery, and I feel like they have succeeded in painting the picture. The lyrics also talk about riding said rollercoaster. This song is like an earworm; there are very high chances that after listening to it for the first time, you might end up with 'so itchy' itching in your head. (Also TMI, but when I first heard it, I thought they were saying 'so easy' lol.)

Track 4: Poppin' Star: This song takes us on a really weird metaphor's journey, as it goes on to describe a group of friends who are bored from all the things they did the day before, and need something more popping, like lemon, lime or orange, to have the fun they want to have. Wow, that was one longass sentence. This song is really adorable, and captures the zest (get it? Lemon? Lime? Should I shut myself up?) of youth really well. We all want to have fun, yet we get bored easily and go to seek the great perhaps pop we need to make lives more interesting. The way they describe their pop, by calling the sensation tingling and electrical, and want it to be strong seems a lot relatable. And while we're on this topic, here's them being dorks and playing around, finding their popping star, and creating that adorable lil choreo.

Track 5: Can't We Just Leave The Monster Alive: Just when you thought that TXT have only long titles only in Korean, they went ahead and released this. You can't escape their brand at this point. This is one of my favourite songs from this album. It is a tropical house song, and probably their only drop chorus songs, minus Crown (and its post-chorus). The choreography is just 5 dudes smoothly jumping and flying around, and then casually hitting the whoa, very cutely at that, as if the previous 10 second choreo never happened. Also, Yeonjun's shoulder moves. (I accidentally hit the post button rn and jumped into panic mode but I saved myself since I didn't put the flair. What a rollercoaster of 15 seconds) The song is talking about a video game set-up, where you can't actually be harmed, unlike real life. And when you face challenges in real life, there's a part of you that starts believing that you are turning into a monster (see: Crown lyrics). In video games, even if you jump, things are going to be alright because you have lives and you can start over easily. Everything will be okay even when you 'drop all the weapons' and 'give up on stats' and leave the monster alive. The song then talks about the struggles of growing up, where you just want to stay like a kid forever.

Track 6: Magic Island: The song deals with heterochromia. Just kidding, lol. It actually is a song which seems to be dedicated to their TU (TXT Universe, which consists of Nap Of A Star, this and Eternally so far, for those who are new here!), especially the bridge (which does mention heterochromia and that weird cat). I don't know how to really explain the lyrics, as it mostly deals with their lore, but other interpretations are always welcomed in the comments! What I interpret it as is that the magic island represents the promises made by a group of friends to each other, which is the start line of their friendship and thus, they should never forget about the island. Anyway, the song is another one of TXT's chill music collection. You can use it as a lullaby, or you can play it during a late night drive. The outro, with all the "I miss you"s make me feel really sentimental, and serves as the perfect farewell to the song. The music video is another short film, beautifully filmed, and that creepy cat never fails to give me chills. Please do check it out, the cinematography is phenomenal!

Track 7: 20cm: This song is probably one of my go-to txt songs, and is a really popular favourite of the entire fandom. It is this sweet love song. It talks about two people, who've known each other since they were kids, and how the narrator is all grown up and tall now and their voice has deepened. The narrator's feelings for the other person have been developing so much that their heart, which has grown as much as their heights have increased, keeps jumping on its own on seeing them. They want to get closer to the person they have feelings for, and say that the distance between them is 20 cm (8 inches xD, I calculated). Also, can we appreciate their vocals for a moment? Especially Yeonjun's note? This was where most of the then-MOAs heard the song for the first time; you can relive this moment with us.

Track 8: Angel Or Devil: The last track of the album is loaded with several references. We're talking about BTS' Boy In Luv (yes, not the 'oh my my my' song but the 'wae nae mameul heundeuneun geonde' song) and the tiddie shake choreo from it, Endgame's sweet little "I love you 3000", some lyrics from their Cat and Dog, and even a Möbius strip. It is this super adorable song, which expresses their confusion on how to approach the person they like because the voices of the angel and devil inside their head are creating chaos. The music video is very youthful, despite its dark colour scheme. The neon doodling with the halos, the wings and the devil's horns, among other things, is really cute, and all the arm wrestling shots are so so well thought out and the transition between them is really commendable. Again, their choreography focuses on imagery with all the halos and horns, and the part where they help Beomgyu jump into the Möbius Strip is really well thought of and executed. Also, kudos to Hueningkai's little Boy In Luv dance.

With this, the album appreciation comes to an end. And while you're here, check out the Concept Trailer for this album, which they performed live at the MMAs. Overall, I'd describe this album to be really trippy and dream-like, but it also let us put our feet in its shoes and view it with a cordial and empathetic eye. Again, this is a place of love so please refrain from spreading hate, and enjoy this magical album in peace. Bye-bye.

“I can’t wait to win, *looks at other girls*, okay this will be easy.”
“Hi everyone, my name is u/itseuijin and I am from the Planet Earth 🤪. Little known fact, I’m not actually gay - you can call me bi I guess but basically I’ll just go out with anyone I fancy. These girls may not see me as a threat because of this but I’m here to show that you don’t have to be gay to be a faggot.”

“I used to stan mediocre bitches, now I'm the mediocre bitch to stan.”
Talking Head, u/TheOnlyLegenda, “Hey I’m u/TheOnlyLegenda and I’m the BICTH to stan. Coming into this competition I expect to win every challenge - expecting any less of yourself is like being slime which is sauce without purpose.”

“I bring nothing to the table, no literally I’m unemployed :)”
Talking Head, u/LoisGriffinVevo, “Saving the best for last, I am u/LoisGriffinVevo and I plan on snatching the crown - hagwarts rejects, that’s my prediction.”

Matt: “Grotesquette and I have handpicked 10, now 9, of the most obnoxious faggots from the millions of audition tapes submitted. Unfortunately, Kyler was unavailable so we gave his spot to Euijin - ain’t no way we were letting a breeder in here unless we had to.”
“Being the Fagula Champion requires staying humble and grounded but tonight… we will ask you to take flight as you write, record and perform your own verse to the hot new single “I’m A Dove”. You will be writing a verse from the POV of a flying animal and on the runway, category is Take Flight - feathers and wings.”
“9 Contestants stand before me, which of you will have what it takes to go all the way.”
u/Genasupposecliatt starts to wake up.
u/Grotesquette steps on stage and crushes her like a cigarette beneath her heel.

INT. BOUDOIR
u/All_About_Aja walks in arm in arm with u/fleshfag
u/All_About_Aja grins. “Let’s be fwends uWu.”
u/fleshfag grins back. “Besties okurrr!!!”
u/LoisGriffinVevo shoves past as she retches with disgust.
The faggots all sit around the boudoir table as they begin to write their verses.
Alone on the end, u/Onegentlerabbit is eyeing up u/itseuijin and muttering to herself. u/itseuijin notices and looks away, scared.
Talking Head, u/itseuijin, “Crazy bitch…”
u/itseuijin moves workstation and sits by u/LoisGriffinVevo and u/KingKabs
u/itseuijin smiles awkwardly, “Hey… hey.”
u/LoisGriffinVevo just stares at her blankly.
While the two of them write their verses, they start to notice a smell.
A look of disgust appears on u/LoisGriffinVevo’s face, “Jesus fucking christ, it’s like Spencie let rip in here.”
The source of the smell quickly becomes apparent as u/erikagenerika creeps up behind u/KingKabs and covers their eyes.
With a mouth full of noxious ass-breath, u/erikagenerika whispers into u/KingKabs’ ears, “Hey… did you miss me?”
u/KingKabs recoils in horror, pinching his nose. “I mostly certainly did not, now get away from me you ass-eating asshole or I’ll send you back to season four.”
Talking Head, u/KingKabs, “It’s important for me to keep myself under control… I don’t want these girls to know that I’m a firebender. It goes against all of my natural urges to not burn that humanised scrotum of a person, u/erikagenerika into a crisp.”
Stepping back from u/KingKabs, u/erikagenerika creeps on over to u/nastygirl
With a bone-chilling grin on her face, u/erikagenerika leans over u/nastygirl’s shoulder and stands within an inch of her body.
A single tear streams down u/nastygirl’s face as u/erikagenerika’s nuclear odour causes her skin to break out on the spot.
Talking Head, u/nastygirl, “Oo ya, in Denmark ya we use showers ya, we get them in IKEA ya.”

u/TheOnlyLegenda sits by u/Fleshfag and u/All_About_Aja as they get ready for the main challenge.
u/TheOnlyLegenda is trying to apply her eyeliner but she keeps getting startled by u/Fleshfag’s aggressive tongue popping.
u/TheOnlyLegenda rolls her eyes. “Can you PLEASE stop that.”
Rolling her neck around, u/Fleshfag looks shocked. “Okay miss henny miss thang okurrr, you better take that tone back down to a two or you can go back to party city where you belong OKURRRR.”
u/All_About_Aja nods. “Yuh, teehee blushes cutely Do what daddy said uWu.”
u/Fleshfag and u/All_About_Aja tongue-pop in harmony as u/TheOnlyLegenda starts crying.

INT. MAIN STAGE
🎶 Freaky Planet by Loris and Honey Davenport
Matt struts the main stage.
Matt: “Welcome to the main stage of Fagula season three, tonight it’s all family! u/Grotesquette, are you ready to take flight?”
u/Grotesquette, “When does the plane leave? I have a colonic at three.”
Matt: “Ha… disgusting! u/Eufreka, is your hair feathered or are you just happy to see me?”
u/Eufreka: “You can tickle me with a feather duster any day!”
Matt: “No thanks, that sounds gay! u/ShashaShtan, since winning Fagula have you found your wings?”
u/ShashaShtan: “I don’t give a fuck about wings, when do I get my prize mone-”
Matt: “Haha! Moving on. Tonight, our faggots were tasked with writing, recording and performing their own sickening verses to the hit new track, I’m A Dove. On the floorshow, category is ‘Take Flight - Feathers and Wings.’ Good luck because for some of you, this floorshow will be your last.”

“I’m baaaack. I’m micronesiarain, the bipolar, opinionated slut from S6 of SDRDR. You may remember me as “the one girl who was a front runner for a few days”. Coming back for Fagula, I entered under an alias. I needed some time to breathe but I’m back with a fire lit under my ass, ready to show these girls that a nasty girl is not one to be messed with.”

Your first line was good, but girl, it spiralled all the way into flop territory after that. Your Runway is..cute? I feel like I’ve seen this kind of outfit before, and I know you can deliver on the runway! So if you are here next week, PLEASE leave the squeaking and shit at home, and bring back CONCERT LEVEL AJA.”
u/Grotesquette: “Hey Aja! I didn't know what to expect from you tonight, and after your performance I would give anything to back to that blissful, innocent stage of my life. Honey, your verse was bad. Arguably the worse of the bunch. Was this a joke? Or some kind of meta commentary on society? I don't get it.”

Matt: “I loved your verse a lot, one of my favourites of the night. I think there was a little room for improvement as it could have been a touch funnier but in general I think it was a serve. Your runway is a difficult one for me as while I do see swan in it, I’m not sure if it reads as feathers or wings? Overall though I think it’s a good look. Well done tonight, u/Onegentlerabbit.”
u/Eufreka: “Your take on dove was clever, the religious POV, the rhymes , it all just worked perfectly, very strong verse, come through brainy queen. However I would’ve like some jokes just to take it to that next level. Your runway tonight, I like that it’s link to your verse and it’s cute but a bit basic. Great start to the competition.”
Next up… u/Fleshfag
u/Grotesquette: “Your verse was a mixed bag for me. The rhyme scheme was solid, but the content felt a little lacking in comparison to some of your competitors. Like there's a lot to write about when it comes to Dodo's, and you settled on "Humans make me wanna vom?" Kinda cringe ngl. Your runways decent though. You're gonna need to step your game up if you wanna make it all the way. Looking forward to a vom free verse, Fleshfag!”
u/Eufreka: “Your verse was good to be honest but it just paled in comparison to the other great verses tonight. I would agree with Grot the content was lacking but everything else was good. Your runway tonight, I feel like I’ve seen before but still a fine look. Imma need you to work on standing out now if you wanna make it to the end.”
Next up… u/itseuijin
u/Grotesquette: “I think this verse was my favorite of the night. Even though you got a harder verse then some of the other contestants, you really nailed the cluck out of it. The lyrics were almost sensual, like somehow you managed to make a chicken sexy? And ending the verse with "C-O-C-K" was a stroke of genius methinketh. Your runway look tonight is probably the most creative of the bunch, and it's beautifully crafted. You really started this episode off with a bang Euijin! Keep this momentum going and you could end up being the next supermonster!”
Matt: “What impressed me the most about you tonight, Euijin, is that every single line worked and there wasn’t a single dull moment of your performance. You had a great flow and it was fun from start to finish. Your runway is impeccable to me, I think going for a butterfly look was a smart move as you knew everyone else was going to go in the direction of a bird look-
u/Fleshfag cringes
Matt: “So you took that and went for the unexpected - that is exactly what we are looking for in the next Fagula champion.”
Next up… u/Nastygirl. Or should I say u/micronesiarain
u/ShashaShtan: “I actually thought this verse was flowing incredibly well and had it pegged as one of my tops! Until I realised you made almost no jokes and the last line just sounded like you keyboard smashed and let auto-correct write it for you. I can see you have potential, just make sure you fine-tune everything and push the funny a bit more. Runway, I actually loved. It’s an approach not many people would have thought of, so this shows you are more than capable of being creative enough to work your way through the competition!”
Matt: “This was an interesting one to me tonight and I’m not sure if its for the right reasons. I think in general your verse was clearly a pterodactyl and you had that part down but I don’t think it packed the punch it needed. It wasn’t funny at all to me and that’s fine but if you don’t go for comedy then it should at least be fierce in some way and I don’t think it was. To me it reads like you did the assignment but you should have gone for the extra credit. As for your runway… I don’t know about this one. It’s a cool take but I think the pose is a little awkward so we can’t see it the way we want to. I hope you continue to grow as I know you can do better than this.”
Last but not least… u/KingKabs
u/Eufreka: “When I saw it was a verse challenge I immediately knew you were gonna be in the top...and here you are. Your verse was amazing, the references ugh. However for me I found your runway to be meh, I can see you’re pushing yourself with these looks but I know you can do better. But still a fantastic start to the competition”
u/ShashaShtan: “Its very weird to me being the one judging you Kabs, but I’m glad to say you started with a bang. Your verse was very strong, as expected, and it flowed extremely well. I especially loved “Slit my throat, but got no thumbs“ one of the few lines that got a giggle out of me. But sometimes, It did just sound like Kabs speaking. Your runway, I love the risk you’re taking this season, and this is a solid look, I just wish I could SEE the front instead of just being hopeful it looks good. Overall, strong opening week, KingKabbles.”
---
Matt: “Okay! I have made some… decisions.”

“u/KingKabs, tonight you didn’t just fly - you soared.”

“u/Onegentlerabbit, tonight you were one bad bitch.”

“u/itseuijin, tonight your chicken was deep fried in our lovin’ ovens.”

“u/itseuijin, condragulations you are the winner of this week’s challenge.”


Talking Head, u/itseuijin, “Oh my god! I just won the very first challenge of Fagula Season 3! These bitches now know that I’m a force to be reckoned with.”
A wave of anger goes through u/Onegentlerabbit as she visibly becomes flushed.
Talking Head, u/Onegentlerabbit, “WHAT? EW!”
“u/itseuijin, you have won a gift certificate to sensual cooking classes with u/Joshuabassetts-cum!”
u/itseuijin claps with glee, “Just what I wanted!”
Matt: “You three may step to the back of the stage.”

“u/Nastygirl… or should I say u/micronesiarain, tonight your pterodactyl made us sympathise with the asteroid.”

“u/Fleshfag… tonight you dodo was a no-no.”

“u/All_About_Aja, tonight your flappy bird was… a floppy bird.”


“u/micronesiarain you are safe but only by the skin of your danish teeth.”

u/micronesiarain looks relieved, “You won’t see me in the bottom again.”
She starts to walk away fiercely but sneezes on the way, the moment is ruined and she is embarrassed.
Matt: “This means that…”

“u/All_About_Aja and u/Fleshfag… you are the bottom two of the week.”

Matt: “Maybe flying is too advanced for you? For tonight’s extermination challenge… you will be taking driving lessons with our very own… u/erikagenerika! Buckle up bitches.”

💃 WHO SHOULD BE EXTERMINATED? 💃

2020.10.28 15:07 Sidian CMV: 2020 is a terrible time to be a music fan if you don't like hip hop

I don't like hip hop. I've tried, but I just find it to mostly be dull, largely lacking in interesting melodies and glorifying mindless hedonism. I like dad rock; classic rock, folk rock, etc. I also like soul, motown. Really most old genres are good. I like ballads. I think music has gotten immeasurably worse in the last few decades.
I find some modern songs decent, but even those are mostly dying out; a decade ago or so catchy pop music was more popular, stuff like Lady GaGa's earlier stuff (Poker face etc.), and I also found ballads by people like Bruno Mars, Beyonce and Ed Sheeran to be tolerable. But even artists like these are moving towards other genres like R&B and hip hop now (compare, for instance, Beyonce's earlier stuff like 'Halo', a melodic and pleasant love song, to her more recent hip hop efforts about being rich and a 'nasty ratchet bitch'). Crucially, I feel that hip hop is so utterly dominant that it is basically turning other genres into hip hop; what is now classified as R&B is utterly unrecognisable (and to me, awful) compared to the R&B of earlier decades due to hip hop influences. At least I assume it's hip hop influences, but nonetheless they're increasingly 'unmelodic' and less focused on catchy hooks, emotion and genuine experience and fall into one of two categories - either 1. detached depressed irony 'dude alcohol, drugs and xanax lmao' or 2. typical hedonist consumerism and vulgarity - 'dude money and sex lmao' - the fact that stuff falling into the second category like WAP is not only topping the charts but unironically considered high quality art with an important message by music reviewers is beyond insane to me and indicative of how much music has degenerated. Don't get me wrong, old music obviously had simplistic and hedonistic lyrics too, but not as bad or generally as popular as stuff like WAP, and this is only a minor point for me as it's the melodies I care more about.
Now, when people make statements like the above, they are mocked as 'le wrong generation' types and people always say 'ackshually, now is the BEST time to be a music fan! You have access to more music than ever before and there's someone making stuff for everyone!' Well, I think this is nonsense. 8/10 of the top charts right now in my country are hip hop, and the only non hip hop is mumble pop that to me seems influenced by hip hop. There's nothing for people like me. Oh, go seek out small music creators or whatever? Okay, where? I've tried getting recommendations from Pandora, Spotify, YouTube... all I get recommended are old songs I've already heard, or new stuff that is hip hop or something similar. I've tried this site that people recommend 'RateYourMusic' - again, the only highly rated stuff in genres I like is old and the highest rated albums of the last 20-30 years are almost entirely hip hop. People also say 'it's just a bias, only the best music survived from the past so it seems like it's better in the past.' No! There is NO music at all being created now that appeals to people like me. None.
TL:DR: people who say they were born in the wrong generation have a valid point and now is a terrible time to be a music fan unless you like hip hop or genres heavily influenced by hip hop

2020.10.26 08:30 Deep_Thinker101 Scenes which had the perfect songs

So a big part of OTh was music and moreso the timing with the scene.The three most perfect timings, form the top of my head, are-
1.Inside of love(S1)-when leyton both admit to their feelings for one another and the lyrics of the song just hit a home run on the emotions and the love that they both have for eachother.
2.Halo(S2)-This song really captures all the emotions of Naley at the time and more so of all relationships.The angst and truth in the lyrics really highlight the desire and regret of Haley.
3.Maybe tommorow(S1)-this is my personal favourite one and i think this scene with songs is just the most perfect combination.The lyrics of the songs bring out the romance and lust that leyton had.Also that song is hella underrated.
4.Non believer(S4)-perfect song at the perfect time.It capotalises on the fear of losing someone and moreso hope, which both nathan and peyton felt.

2020.10.20 02:01 lechepicante "Saga Jihen", between myth and allegories.

It's not mine, it's an analysis done by someone else, original source: https://web.facebook.com/photo?fbid=3119520704837351&set=gm.383738666147361

Yugiri's song "Saga Jihen" probably tells about the romantic history she lived through and how she was murdered. It is sensual music, despite the fact that jazz was invented (or properly documented), a few decades after her death. The progress between the traditional with the use of the shamisen (an instrument that we know she knows how to play) to the jazz beats occurs with a wonderful harmony.
Without much ornamentation, we went from turbulent Japan assimilating western culture in the Meiji Era restoration to populous New Orleans within the same century.
Jazz is also generally a common tool in Hollywood musicals; which leads to think that the composer could have been Kotaro with his infinite experience in contemporary North American art. In addition, in its beginnings, jazz was based on the improvisation of its musicians, something for which Franchouchou has an undeniable talent.
If we take a little sociological tour, New Orleans is a district where wealth and poverty are marked by skin color and apartheid, even today.
It is also known for being a city with the largest African-American population, which, sympathetically, is no secret that they are voodoo practitioners from Haiti (and hodoo from Louisiana). They were the forerunners of the imaginary of zombie culture that would later reach the big screen with Victor Halperin's “White Zombie” (1932); and that it would find its apogee and massification in the vast production of George R. Romero with "Night of the Living Dead" (1968).
On the other hand, the lyrics have a halo full of resentment, of someone who has been cruelly deceived and who, therefore, waits for the ideal moment to return the blow that has been done to him. A quite different look from a character who does not usually say too much throughout the story and who saves his comments until the situation warrants.
Within the several musical minutes, there are several allegories; but one of the ones that most caught my attention is the use of led lights that has NOTHING to do with jazz unless it is a nightclub (with all the burden that this entails).
A certain suggestion is also made to the Rosse Buurt (Amsterdam) businesses, which are mostly decorated with this type of lighting to attract the attention of future consumers. If we make a connection, the Rosse Buurt is the place where prostitution, drugs and sexual diversity are legalized and regulated.
It is likely that it is a soft hint to Yugiri's old work that, although not all oniran used to work on the erotic part; Her speeches usually have small nods to the fact that she has had the occasional encounter with her clients.
Here, the girls are not behind a window waiting for their customers as in Rosse Buurt (that would be quite daring); they are found in small cocktail glasses; hinting that they are next drinks that will satisfy the needs of their customers.
If we spin fine, it is an irony because, being zombies, they would be more likely to feed on them.

Remember that nothing in art is accidental and that, although you cannot make it very explicit because the story would end up censored, it is not the first time that Zombie Land Saga has touched on delicate subjects in the most mature and imaginative way possible.
I hope this publication is to your liking.
