    The new clipping. album, Visions Of Bodies Being Burned was released today, and holy shit it is something to sit on for a while. The production varies from absolutely bonkers and disturbing to beautiful and serene. I will be listening to this for a while.

    Tomorrow I'll throw on the new Gorillaz album. I've liked the singles, so I'm optimistic after not being a fan of their past two albums.

    I didn’t have a chance to watch the video so I’m not sure they already showed some – but I really wanna see some wild RTX gaming footage with this setup.

    I agree that it sucks, but at least most iPhone users have plenty of lightning chargers already lying around.

    This is the opening track to the absolutely fantastic noisy album, Double Negative, by Low.

    I highly recommend listening to the whole thing if you like this track. You can really get lost in the soundscapes, and every song transitions so effortlessly into the next it's magical. If you're not a huge fan of noise please don't be put off by it instantly, you'd be missing out!

    The game has a great way of telling its story, and I wish more games follow its lead.

    There are two must-experience puzzle games that are only on iphone (or at least one of them is only on iphone). I recommend that you don't read up on or look the games up too much beforehand, and instead trust me, a random stranger, and spend the dollar or two on the games to try them out.

    Black Box https://www.blackboxpuzzles.com/

    and

    Song of The Bloom https://apps.apple.com/us/app/song-of-bloom/id1479162134

    They really make you think outside the box.

    I was just listening to this LP on vinyl this morning, and this really is a great, unique project. Also, the LP came with a Malibu Ken mask, which is rad.

    Well that was way more of a mess than I even anticipated. They need to isolate the candidates and simply cut off their mics when it’s not their turn to speak.

    This was a cringeworthy thing to watch. I wish they had adopted measures to prevent Trump from constantly derailing and interrupting the conversation. I can only imagine how hard it must’ve been for Biden to get a coherent thought across with someone constantly shouting over you with wild accusations and worse.

    The way Trump dodged condemning the far right groups was a dark thing to witness. I hope Biden is right and he will be forced to concede his office if he loses.

    I, for one, couldn’t be more happy about not being an American right now. I am right there with you hoping for a change, though!
