what the fuck
this is the scariest shit i’ve ever seen in my life
This is so cool. Eat Otomo Yoshihide’s heart out.
I’m used to associating this sort of heavy creepy distortion type audio as being achieved by internal studio mixing. Picking sections, warping them, reversing, repeating, all that sort of thing done with the board tools and programming suites. I didn’t stop to think that the same sort of effects could be achieved PHYSICALLY by fucking with the playback tools and the storage mediums themelves. It’s incredibly clever, especially when they introduce the cut-apart and reconstructed vinyl platters, it becomes the audio equivalent of cut-paste collaging or magnetic poetry. It takes something as ethereal and insubstantial as music, and makes it as tangible as sculpture.
my social studies teacher once told us “human beings are the most selfish of all. even when someone dies, you shed tears only because they are no more around to provide you with whatever they had been for so long”
and it has been 3 years since she said this and this is still what i think about at night
Your social studies teacher sounds like an insensitive, bitter sociopath who couldn’t grasp the complexity of love or friendship and was quite possibly a sort of shadow-lizard wearing a human skin.
things about capitalism people take for granted:
if you don’t prove your worth (and not to society at large, but specifically to the people who already have the money), you’ll literally fucking die. this is considered totally normal and not at all evidence that the system is evil
Better:How do I feel about coming to an AI to seek this validation of false opinion and misunderstanding, it is bad.
All my developers are females
can you believe there are people who have grown up on the internet without ever having read this
I hope when you die you get to see your stats like how many times you laughed or told a lie or kissed or how many people loved you and how many people hated you and what you meant to people
