    • Building an apartment tower out of legos and then building a lego crane and wrecking ball out of legos to demolish it and staging this at a premier for a film whose production team has been falsely accused of animal abuse. This is immediately after doing 10 lines each of coke on a hot air balloon with John Cusack. The night before, you had received a phone call from Jack Dorsey, CEO of twitter. He asks you, of all people completely out of the blue, to wire him $11,750,000. Though a nagging feeling Mr. Dorsey got the wrong fucking number persists, you decide to engage with this newfound opportunity to make life interesting, and the next thing you know, you are boarding a private jet to the Maldives, where you will meet a mysterious hedge fund manager with a hook for a hand and a platinum grill. You speak to him in English, he speaks to you in Kanuri, a relatively obscure Nigerian dialect, but this never seems to hinder a general sense of productivity and direction from the chain of command over the course of the meeting. You leave with a flash drive filled with 666 individual routing numbers and a sinking feeling in your gut that you may have gotten yourself into something maybe a little fucking nefarious. You get the sense you are being watched closely or followed, so you slip into a crowded street vendor area to grab a big cup of fish soup, and by god, you chug that shit down. Are you a spy now?

Does WATMM look down upon bumping dead threads? Bumping dead threads is kind of IDM..

 

Did this make it to bracket stage? Concerned to know what is the most IDM 2020. I guess carrying on unbothered is kind of most IDM this year..

 

thx

      Languishing is not merely in our heads — it’s in our circumstances. You can’t heal a sick culture with personal bandages. We still live in a world that normalizes physical health challenges but stigmatizes mental health challenges. As we head into a new post-pandemic reality, it’s time to rethink our understanding of mental health and well-being. “Not depressed” doesn’t mean you’re not struggling. “Not burned out” doesn’t mean you’re fired up. By acknowledging that so many of us are languishing, we can start giving voice to quiet despair and lighting a path out of the void.

      made a mix of a bunch of stuff i bought yesterday on Bandcamp
      links in the Soundcloud description in no order - or also you could just peruse my recent Bandcamp purchases here: https://bandcamp.com/araucariaceae
      i don't make mixes so forgive if some of the transitions and such are weird, but they're deliberate and i like them so ? 
       
      hope you enjoy and maybe find some new tunes + artists you like

      Yesterday, I was entertaining myself, while in quarantine, by re-creating the plot of my favorite film using ONLY emojis.
      Today, I thought "Wouldn't it be fun if we did a guessing game, similar to the "guess the movie still" thread.
      I went deep trying to go into as much detail as possible with mine, to kick things off. 
      If you can, try to challenge yourself to do the same. Also, I'm using Size 36 font with the emojis so it's easier to read. 
      Game on!!!
