  1. Holy fuck is that new song bad. It sounds like a band ripping off some Tycho elements and making some super wack Chillout EDM music. After this I just can't support the guy anymore. Not that it matters, he's got about 600,000 festival goers in my place.
  2. This is exactly how life was for me from high school to 30 years old. Probably around 15-20 "Friends" that I would switch around every weekend, tons of parties / events. Now that I'm 32, have a wife (no kids yet). Trying to grow up a little bit and look at things differently. Distancing myself from the shitty / negative / unsupportive friends has allowed for other things to happen. I wasn't as pissed off or upset as I normally was, my relationship with my wife increased ten-fold, got closer with my family and my brothers. But yea, making friends as an adult is a lot more difficult than when young. For the most part adults all already have their core friendships in place- are not really looking for new ones.
  3. I am pretty sure he was just a selfish asshole, but at the rate your going him being a selfish asshole must be attributed to some type of psychological reason. You say drop out of life like it is some insanely negative connotation. I view it the opposite. If someone is negatively affecting you, bringing you down with them, it is the wise thing to do to let those people go. Even if it just for a period of time for them to get their shit together or grow up etc. Another buddy was great sober but the problem was he was drunk all the time and began mixing it with meds too. It got real bad and I was actually one or the last few left that did not abandon him. But eventually I had to as well. Now hes been sober for like 120 days. Wrote me a 3 paragraph text about how he was sorry he took me for granted / was a shitty friend and we started talking again every other day about sports or the like.
  4. That's definitely a glass half full look on life. One of the my best friends I dropped from my life used to say he wanted to hang out a night, then would either ditch or not pick his phone up when the time came. That's not what anyone needs at any moment lol. That is just a shitty friend.
  5. True. I guess it's a flaw I have to expect so much. But that's just me. Take it or leave it, yaknow? Gets pretty complex why I am that way I wouldn't want to bore with it, suffice it to say the short story is I've been around death my whole life. Up close and personal with it. Funeral home / mortician family, spent 10 years in the business myself. So I am the way I am because I do not want to waste time on people that don't warrant it and don't appreciate it. Life is far too short.
  6. Hm. I see your point but not sure if I agree. My problem is that I have such high standards for people i regard as friends because I feel like I give the world to others-- so they should in return. I've always had tons of friends, big cliques, close friends, etc. It is only the past couple years that I began really widdeling it down. If the only reason you ever hit me up is because you want to drink or party, and you cannot have a friendship that evolves past that, then there's no point in having your friendship IMO. Had this with a few guys. I'd like text them during the week about a movie or book or music drop, no response. Come Friday, "Hey man you trying to drink tonight?" Like what I said never happened. That shit's infantile, not me.
  7. Similar occurrence with my best friend / college room-mate. He never was a guy that set anything up or took initiative, and I was ok with that. But now that he is engaged to a girl that is the complete opposite-- super controlling and plans out his life-- he just does whatever she wants. It was a few weeks in a row of me hitting him up and him hanging out with her family and her friends every single time. Eventually I was like OK man, I see your prerogative now, bye. And I haven't talked to him since. Sad.
  8. I've silently debated this topic a lot the past few years. Do you keep around shitty friends just to have friends? Should you drop them out of your life? If you drop them all out you will end up with nobody. Are unreliable friends better than no friends at all? Discuss.

    P-Money just unstoppable rn.
  10. Went to see the new Avengers. Little bit hung-over might've affected this but I walked out (first time i've done that in many years). God that movie was nauseating. It was so boring i couldn't take it anymore. I know action was going to eventually start but I wasn't invested enough to give a shit.

  12. You can definitely hear the Dorian Concept and Dimlite influence in Takashi. The semi-minimal drums with the jazz/funk stabs. Can really hear the Dimlite at times with the chord progressions and offbeat-style. Not a bad thing. Those are two of my favorite artists.
  13. My Chill and Vibe Out Playlist: Genre- Electronic, Ambient, House, IDM, (and some folk). I relax and hang out to this all the time. https://open.spotify.com/playlist/4gGocs1pjDDMkOKEFqEqld

  16. flat earth sympathizer. alex jones survival kit packager. Y2K propagandist.
  17. So pretty, so beautiful some of these tracks. He really is getting better and better. Of course it's not perfect, I could probably do without the middle of the album lol. But the first few tracks and the last few are great. I mean if this is too "hippy" or "starbucks" for you I'm not sure how you ever liked bibio to be honest. He's always had this sound he's just now refining it brilliantly.

    Fukk i rilly needed thos laffs thanks guyz
  19. Everyone on my fb feed are saying it's a grower. Gonna have some wine tonight and give the album another listen.
  20. Ugh man. Like a mix between Imogen Heap and Radiohead. I'll have to wait until i'm depressed and drunk to listen to this album again.
  21. If this is the case, then I absolutely cannot wait to hear some stuff that is more "personal" n such Fashion industry eh? I'll have to put that in my head next time I listen to it. Fascinating. . . Re:domestic tasks - my wife has this longstanding battle with me re: listening to music while doing household tasks, as she says it's a way of distracting oneself from being present with the task at hand. And I half agree but also sometimes I'm like wtf I just worked a 10hr day can I least have my 15 mins of Aphex while scrubbing these forks ffs? Music isn't distracting! It's enhancing. I'll throw this playlist on while doing any tasks. I do prefer the chiller stuff though when doing household work. https://open.spotify.com/playlist/4gGocs1pjDDMkOKEFqEqld Cheers! This looks good - I could see this being a nice "clean the house" sorta playlist. . . Know we're verging off topic but this https://open.spotify.com/playlist/4NpYOAP8pHeey2EtpwvYtB is my current "doing dishes" playlist. Trigger warning (for some) there is a lot of really terrible pop music on here. I mean, str8 up pop garbage but it's stuff that gets me moving so sry not sry Oh man..... Clark Body Riddle with Red Hot Chili Peppers and Sum 41. Kill me now hahahah.
