I haven’t written anything in a long time. So as to not break my super regular writing streak (ahem), I will post about something totally pointless today.
I re-visisted one of my favourite web comics - THE SPAGHATTA NADLE. And I realized how intensely I miss Allie Brosh’s comics. The 6 part comic is one of the most ridiculously hilarious things that ever happened on the internet and has the capability to make me happy EVERY TIME I SEE IT.
Thank you Allie. If I ever meet you in person, I will give you such a big hug.
Revisited RHCP after so long. I literally love the shit out of EVERY song on this album. It’s not even funny how good their Greatest hits album is!
John Oliver brilliantly rants against native advertising. Amazing!
This is absolutely priceless. Oh god. Can’t stop laughing.
Discovered this comment on a completely random r/funny thread and it made me smile. I thought of my closest friends as I read this and the mundane nonsense we talk about 90% of the time.
The older I get, the more I realize….that’s what all the good friends are for. In ordinary situations, that’s all they are: story listeners. The really good ones listen to all of your stories, and you in return listen to their stories. It doesn’t matter whether the stories are interesting, or mundane, they just listen.
You tell them about how work is hard and how you’ve been looking for a new job but there’s nothing in the area, and how you read a good book, but it wasn’t really that great because of all of the cliches. They tell you about the car they think they want to buy, and all of the cars within their price range that they found on cars.com, but the closest one doesn’t have 4WD and that’s just a deal breaker.
There are people you get wasted with, there are people you play video games with, there are people you work with (none necessarily mutually exclusive) …but the people you tell your stupid blunders, your boring discoveries, your tiny victories against mundane daily routines…those are the real friends.
We went to this burger place for lunch (turned out to be a drag bar which was shitty in other ways) but the walls were papered with rolling stones covers and it just really becomes obvious when you see lots of magazine covers next to each other that men are treated as people and women are treated as objects.
One of the best parts of travelling to Ladakh this summer was the excellent opportunity it presented me with to soak in all the great music I’ve been listening to over this year. There’s something about listening to entire albums in track order while staring at beautiful sceneries and driving. (shuffle and playlists are ruining the way we listen to music!)
Here are the top five albums that defined my trip. They’re also a pretty good reflection of some of my favourite indie/electronic/alt rock music that’s been released over the past year:
I highly recommend ALL the albums.
Hi world, I’m back on the internet! I recently got back from a 9 day vacation to the Ladakh valley, driving through some of the most remote parts of Northern India. I’ll get down to writing a much longer post about how amazing the experience was once I get bored of staring at this picture. Sigh. Where’s my chai, now?
