Really regret selling my Inneva Woven SPs now that the zoom air unit on my Flyknit Trainers finally gave out :(

Just bought one of these and still have plans to buy one more piece of outerwear and a few pairs of sneakers before winter :\

I didn’t even know about this show until after I found out about Crush Songs and by then it was sold out. And with the strict ticket policy, I wouldn’t have even been able to get tickets from scalpers. Luckily someone who was also going to be running late had a spare ticket and was nice enough to sell it to me at face value. 
Despite missing most of the opener, I still got reasonably close and wasn’t stuck behind tall people. But since this was such a small and intimate show(probably even more than the acoustic Ben Gibbard set at this same venue years back), there was a no photo policy, which I believe was also in place when the Yeah Yeah Yeahs were touring for Mosquito. Because of said policy, they took my camera at the door :(
But tbh, it was quite nice not having so many phones in the air distracting from the performance. I think I would prefer shows to be this way, even if it meant I couldn’t bring my own camera into shows either. Luckily, after security returned my camera, they allowed me to go back and take a photo of the neon sign :D
Anyways, it was fucking amazing. I don’t know if you’ve heard Crush Songs with decent equipment, but her performance sounded just like the record, even all the quirks and random bits that got plenty of laughs and cheers from the crowd. Considering this record is amongst my favorite releases so far this year and from one of my favorite musicians nonetheless, I think it’s safe to say that this was also one of my favorite performances period.

Films like this make me roll my eyes at people who complain about things like plot or dialogue as if they’re the only things that matter in a visual narrative.

"You fellas think of comics in terms of comic books, but you’re wrong. I think you fellas should think of comics in terms of drugs, in terms of war, in terms of journalism, in terms of selling, in terms of business. And if you have a viewpoint on drugs, or if you have a viewpoint on war, or if you have a viewpoint on the economy, I think you can tell it more effectively in comics than you can in words. I think nobody is doing it. Comics is journalism."

Jonathan Lethem, As She Climbed Across The Table

I loved this book… and I probably enjoyed it more than I did his actual critically acclaimed work.

I saw this on Monday and still don’t know how I feel about it. Sure, I laughed a lot(was probably the loudest in the theater lol), but for something that made me laugh so much, it also made me incredibly sad. Even my sister said as much when we were walking home. Despite my mixed feelings, it was definitely worth watching and I can only imagine I’d appreciate it even more on subsequent viewings.

I misguidedly viewed superhero comics as a sort of preview of my upcoming adult life.
