MY WAR is every whisper— an echo— and every echo an empty room where words move like helium and the helium is tangible, brittle and empty as the sound of an axe striking dry wood and the wood splintering out in the night after the ice storm where [...]
MS MR released a legit interesting video about an hour ago. It’s Monday morning, so here are my reactions on watching it before and after getting high. BEFORE -0:30: Trying to find the skip ad button. Sigh. Ignore. Ignore. Volkswagen something. 0:00: Okay, HD. Mini-expand. 0:10: Slo-mo. Always with the effin slo-mo. I mean, I [...]
Musiciens Je Veux Frencher – The Growlers @ Sala Rossa 1/27/13 It was that time of night when I had to cock block the lead singer. Ana swayed gracelessly on her high-heeled boots.

Peter Ricq and Robbie Slade are two humans. They make music together. Their crazy-fun live shows and genre-bending electro has taken them on tour with Junior Boys, How to Dress Well, Grimes, and Kid Sister, among others. And yet, they maintain they’re just two dudes, trying to make enough money to buy beer. Robbie, a [...]
