how is it almost friday?? we've got a busy weekend ahead of us. but let's slow down on this, even a thursday night in the year of our lord two thousand sixteen, & take stock of where we're at.
oh my gosh, crazy ex-girlfriend!! have you watched any? i had lots of initial reservations about it; the marketing was just not great, & despite the pro-feminist explanations of the show creators (which i do understand, don't get me wrong) i still find the title problematic, at the very least. in fact, i had totally written off this show & forgotten about it. but then, cultural sheep that i am, rachel bloom won a golden globe for her role as rebecca bunch, & i was totally like, "that show won a gg? maybe i'll give it a try..." & the rest is history. while crazy ex can get a little silly at times, it's also really fun & clever, & i've found myself telling pretty much everybody to watch it.
"kettering" by the antlers isn't a new song at all, but it's just too beautiful not to be shared:
also miike snow has a new album coming out in just a week or two, so i thought i'd share an oldie-but-goodie song of theirs that i've loved for many moons. plus i've had the happy experience of discovering that the driving beat of its opening notes often match up perfectly with my running pace. plus plus the music video is all sorts of beautiful "wtf?!"-ery (that burning deer head tho??!), so, all good things.
