Songs I’ve Ruined Forever for my Roommates

  • Wolf Like Me // TV On The Radio: Really the entire Return to Cookie Mountain LP was on loop for the entirety of 2006. "You really like that band with all the weird noises." Yeah, I do. If you need me I’ll be howling forever oh oh. 

  • Better Son/Daughter // Rilo Kiley: when you’re 19 and depressed, Rilo Kiley finds its way into your life and all the people who share space with you get to watch you mouth along to the lyrics until the song kicks in and you full on overpower Jenny Lewis’ adorable little voice.  

  • Deceptacon// Le Tigre: To be fair I was trying to learn the choreography. 

  • Dance Yrself Clean // LCD Soundsystem: The volume levels alone were enough to garner an intervention, and no one said a damn word. It’s almost 9 minutes long for Christ’s sake. Maybe they were just as into it as I was. 

  • Turtleneck Coverup // Ozma; The roommates in reference here would be my parents. I was 17 and obsessed and my Mom was NOT a fan of me playing a song about hickeys on repeat. 


  • I Gotta Feelin (Just Nineteen) // Eagles of Death Metal: Whatever. Still into it.

Some people make us feel more human and some people make us feel less human and that is a fact as much as gravity is a fact and maybe there are ways to prove it, but the proof of it matters less that the existence of it—how a stranger can show up and look at you and make you make more sense to yourself and the world, even if that sense is extremely fragile and only comes around occasionally and is prone to wander or fade—what matters is that sometimes sense is made between two people and I don’t know if it’s random or there is any kind of order to it, what combinations of people work the best and why and how do we find these people and how do we keep these people around, and I don’t know if it’s chaos or not chaos but it feels like chaos to me so I suppose it is.

Catherine Lacey’s Nobody Is Ever Missing is filled with sentences as beautiful as this one. Typing it out was exhausting but also wonderful because I got to revisit it. (via bobbyfinger)

After seeing ‘Boyhood’ on Saturday, which was fantastic and special and I hope gets more widespread showings so everyone can enjoy it, I marathoned all 3 ‘Before’ flicks today. 

Believe it or not I hadn’t seen any of them. They’ve always been on my To Watch list, but kept getting pushed for no specific reason. I’m glad I smashed them all together into one long day of Jesse & Celine.

Linklater does something really special when it comes to time and his recurring company of actors. He pulls rich realistic performances out of all of them, allowing you to get so much more invested, especially as you see them physically and emotionally transform over decades.

I read an interview where he talked about audiences being conditioned to expect huge plot changes and catastrophes. I certainly felt those surges, but eventually relaxed and just took in the moments for what they were. To be honest it was damn soothing to not have these giant conflicts spring up. You were able to just observe two people connecting and making sense of their normal lives at different junctions.

I’m thankful for slice of life flicks, and Linklater gets the goldest star.

I’m into the vibe this immediately creates no matter where you are.
