i wish people would not use the comment space underneath ambient music tracks to try and prove that they have an MFA in creative writing

like you can just say the song is good you dont have to describe it as the digital cigarette smoke from a hologram lover or whatever

@thomas then you can use your better judgement and think it to yourself instead of saying it on the internet

@Dayglochainsaw I also think it’s cool to say “This movie whips” about a movie and not try to be Roger fucking Ebert

@thomas @Dayglochainsaw excuse me, Roger Ebert would absolutely support you saying "this movie whips"

@thomas its always good to just say "this whips", everyone knows what it means, its easy to enthusiastically agree, and most importantly it doesnt make you seem like a Huge Tool

@Dayglochainsaw most of my reviews on Letterboxd are like that. Short and to the point unless I have something to say that I think is valuable

@thomas this is how i would review movies if i was the type of guy to review movies. "The Lighthouse: 5 stars. this movie whips. good for fans of seeing willem dafoe getting scared of a bird and then jerking off in a shed"

@Dayglochainsaw also Pattinson jerks off in a shed, Dafoe jerks off in front of the light. Important distinction

@Dayglochainsaw it's because they don't have the technical knowledge to say "this is a preset on an obscure reverb rack mount"

@Laser even if they said that instead i still would not like them

@Dayglochainsaw at least it's honest. I always think of the old phrase "writing about music is like dancing about architecture"
