fred melamed - he's randomly popped up in some of my favourite movies, & he had a cool little role in wandavision. weyes blood - generation why i'd never heard of this woman until about 20 minutes ago, when i watched her perform this song in a wonderfully weird film called vhyes. i thought it was absolutely great! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hGBLN_BJIJQ the fall are exactly what i want music to sound like. there are about 3 dozen songs that are cranky, miserable, ugly, repetitive perfection, but my favourite is new puritan. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KfYwnsMjPEs&ab_channel=SeagreenSerenade worst? eh..., they certainly had some poor stuff (not much though), but my least favourite would have to come from the period where they got a bit too smooth and bland in the early 90s. the title track to shiftwork is a good example. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JTV1zToGj8M&ab_channel=TheFall-Topic white worm & the devils are demented hoots and i love both of them. i love biking, but never in the winter. it's always seemed insanely hazardous to me. i parked my mountain bike all last year because i was tired of putting so much money into it every year. i am itching to get it fixed now & get out on the road come spring. i had canned tuna for lunch today, so i did indeed use a can opener for that. i buy canned crushed tomatoes regularly, and that's the only other thing i regularly use an opener for. it's very similar in some ways to the great 90s todd haines film 'safe' in the way it pokes around how a woman falls into self-destructive patterns due to a perceived emptiness in her domestic life. i don't think swallow is quite in the same league as safe, but they're almost sister movies in the way they take on that notion. let's take a moment to appreciate some of the great djokovic/nadal points: us open 2011 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=N16ikBfue7c&ab_channel=SakhiZamanWazir https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EwWlaD28AA4&ab_channel=ShouProgram us open 2013 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CFa5LJ_av6c&ab_channel=NEWCHANNEL-RFProductions i have no great love for djokovic, but both of those guys are absolute warriors. i found that to be more the case in the 90s & early 2000s, maybe. the sampras era, basically. it all seemed to be about power then. & i definitely remember that being a time when the games were dull. obviously power still matters, but i think the last 16 or so years - the federer era if you wanna call it that - has given us some of the most amazing tennis on the men's side. the nadal/federer wimbledon finals in the late 2000s, that roddick/federer game, the 2012 and 2017 australian finales...those matches are amazing to me. all that said, i don't really follow the women's game at all, so i can't really comment on it one way or the other. i'll watch the finals in the major tournaments, but i definitely don't follow it the same way i do the men's game. tennis that's the only sport i really like, in that i'll follow what's happening & i'll sit and watch an entire game, follow tournaments, etc. i kinda like baseball, especially the way it can be broken down statistically so many ways, but i don't think i have the patience to sit through an actual game anymore.
