infusing indie rock with country sounds really is all the rage these days, has been for a few years i guess. the new mitski album last year was all the better for it tho

took a big ass drive to ohio and back. listened to a few albums

Listened to the new Adrianne Lenker album. First listen didn't do too much for me, but the second was very nice. IDk why it clicked better the second time (or why some albums just take multiple listens). Anyway Vampire Empire and the single were the highlights. I don't know that it's as good as songs (her previous album) but where songs was really a wounded breakup album throughout...this album has a lot more moods and is lighter which i appreciate.

I also listened to the new Waxahatchee album and I gotta say...I don't give a shit about that country sound that she has nowadays. Kind of a boring record and while her voice is still very nice she's really leaning into a few tricks of hers repeatedly which makes the whole album kinda feel samey and uninspired. Can't think of a single track that I loved or outright hated from this one.

yeah I feel that, tho there is part of me that is thinking whether there is actually more shitty stuff going on right now or was it always happening and are we only now getting more exposure to it because of how connected everything is. it's probably the former tbh or maybe a bit of both.

my general perspective is that yes it's a shitshow, but there are also a lot of great things going on in the area of advancements for humanity so idk there is positive and negative and i like to think that we are generally headed in a positive trajectory even if that's a bit optimistic. the whole wars and politics situation is a mess but also this isn't the worst it's been and things turned out in a positive direction eventually, tho that being said i really hope china don't do anything extremely stupid in the next few years.

i also realise that its easy to have this perspective from where i am in a safe, comfortable place in a 1st world country and i might not be saying the same things if i was e.g. living in a area of conflict where i have to fear for my life and the lives of those around me every waking second, but i can only look from where I am and at best be mindful of other angles i guess

I'm not gonna get too deep into academia slowly devolving into a pointless exercise to put meaningless stats on the board that offers no actual educational value to students or this post will become 10,000 words in and of itself, but I agree 100% and I feel like at this point the whole academic system really needs a hard reboot

re twatter and social media - i think the whole saturation of onlyfans accounts shameless posting nudes in the replies on any random post and the platform doing nothing about it is dire. sure there is a market for horny guys who are more than happy to subscribe to OF and it's a tried and tested business model that many OF people have made an obscene amount of money doing, but the fact that this is a thing at all idk gives me dire vibes like it is kinda like the whole gambling elements in video games thing where huge profits are being made by exploiting the sometimes very extreme addictions that afflict regular people that they actually need serious help with but instead they are taken advantage of..

not as fussed with the whole filming of oneself doing generous things on social media, some of it is incredibly tasteless and its very clear they don't care about actually helping at all and it def gives off strong "I'm doing nice things just so other people can see otherwise I wouldn't even consider it" vibes but at the end of the day I think if a generous act has been done  one way or another, then the outcome is a net positive
