“I want to create an atmosphere that can be consciously plumbed with seeing like the wordless thought that comes from looking at a fire.” - James Turrell

I sometimes worry that serious music can only be served by serious talk, or worse, that people who like serious music can only have serious reasons for doing so. The truth is that you will probably meet just as many shallow people at a National show as you will at a Miley Cyrus show, the difference being that people at the National show are more likely to think they’re important, while people at a Miley Cyrus show are more likely to think they’re having fun.

Mike Powell talks about what we mean when we talk about pop music with his Pitch piece "It’s Not What You Like But How You Like It". (via pitchfork)

David Edelstein reviews Under the Skin and Only Lovers Left Alive:

Undead Hipsters And An Abstract Alien Star In Two Arty Horror Pics

Every so often a high-toned arthouse director dips a toe into the horror genre and the results are uplifting: You realize vampires and space aliens are subjects too rich to be the sole property of schlockmeisters. That’s the case with two new arty genre pictures: Jonathan Glazer’s Under the Skin and Jim Jarmusch’s Only Lovers Left Alive — both slow, expressionist, non-narrative, the kind of films that drive some people crazy with boredom and put others in their thrall.

Under the Skin  looks fantastic.  I can’t wait to see it.  Also, Scarlett Johansson

Originally another word for poppy, coquelicot is the flower’s orange-tinted red color. (It also sounds like a celebrity baby name.)

"So avoid using the word ‘very’ because it’s lazy. A man is not very tired, he is exhausted. Don’t use very sad, use morose. Language was invented for one reason, boys - to woo women - and, in that endeavor, laziness will not do. It also won’t do in your essays."N.H. Kleinbaum

I wasted about an hour of my life playing on this

It’s a music game where you create a bunch of basic organisms clustered around a radar center.  I’m pretty amazed.  It’s very weird and very creative…and I keep finding new little ways to tweak it.  Love it.

Edit: It even lets you create and share your own sequences.  This is one of several I made.

How to write good.

Probably not relevant for a lot of you, but hilarious to me.
