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
@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 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"
@Dayglochainsaw at least it's honest. I always think of the old phrase "writing about music is like dancing about architecture"
Skull dot website is an intentionally small instance for friends.
