Perfume's Reframe show must've been just amazing to see live. Rhizomatiks stuff (bringing AR to live concerts in particular) is just mind-blowing. Those stills look like works of art, not snaps from a show https://www.flaunt.com/content/perfume-reframe-2019
Perfume as a creative force (and essentially the work of a collective of various types of artists) really is the exploration of the future of pop, and a huge part of that is... what is a live performance when the best pop music is impossible for humans to perform live?
I wonder if this is the coining of the term "funkwhale rap" 😂 @funkwhale
Last time catching some live starcraft this visit. Here's the link if you wanna watch along and maybe spot me in the crowd http://www.twitch.tv/starcraft
Judging anecdotally it feels like Apple is going to sell a bazillion 16" macbook pros. I made it a week before I caved and put in an order. Online it seems like there was so much pent up demand tons of others are doing the same. Curious to see how the actual sales numbers end up as I feel like for the first time in a long time we'll actually see how big the prosumer mac laptop market is
Nakata deep cut of the day: staring in disbelief at the breakthrough years of his discography again
Part of why I ramble/post about him so much is I truly believe at some point it will enter the global musical zeitgeist how unbelievable this was. I've used the analogy of J Dilla where he was at one point only highly regarded in his own genre but with time his legend grew & now any musician from any genre will tell you we're still following in his footsteps and learning lessons from what he did
Really interesting haircut in Korea:
-Taped a plastic visor to my forehead so hair wouldn't fall on my face
-A floater assistant zipped between the chairs of everyone getting cuts. Brushed hairs off my face, handed things to the haircutter, shampooed me
-Got shampooed beforehand, but also after with a different cool minty shampoo
-Bizarre and quite painful scalp massage at the end, felt like she was almost ripping my hair out lol
-Very minimal chatter, almost none

Nakata deep cut of the day: Capsule - Adventure
Such a unique vibe... the first chorus doesn't hit until past halfway through a relatively long song- the patience and economy of melody make the chorus so satisfying even though it's quite simple 😊
Catching some more live starcraft today- 2019 WCS top 16! http://www.twitch.tv/starcraft
True or not, nothing underscores the unbelievable value of the data they're soaking up via tik tok more than them being willing to play this card. Normally they'd bring the hammer down but here they truly care enough not to rock the boat and risk losing one of the great data firehoses of all time.
This is the ideal esports broadcast. You may not like it but this is what peak production looks like https://youtu.be/YWybEJALOI8
This album is gonna be fantastic https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TfnRTifSWh0
https://youtu.be/-E0RrVXy9Uw how did I never even pay attention to the themes of this album... Love that the perspective assumes the best about the listener, like he's saying if you care to listen to what I'm saying it's implied you believe in a positive sum world and that diversity = strength. That is assuming the "you" is the listener?
The album art alone should have clued me in what this album was getting at 😂
Lyrics aside I never realized what a fun arrangement this is either
League of legends group stage about to start with FNC vs SKT https://www.twitch.tv/riotgames I'm rooting for skt and faker in this first match but obviously TL overall
Also interesting the non-stop "free hong kong" spam in chat. Blizzard's cowardice really brought this into the global gaming zeitgeist
Since I posted this I keep thinking about how I'll never be able to comprehend the immensity of the privilege I have to be able to just flippantly post it and go about my day not having immediately endangered myself or my loved ones
Catching GSL super tournament starcraft live in studio http://www.twitch.tv/gsl
