"Bits per second" is a scam invented by ISPs to make the internet sound eight times better than it really is, and should be abolished

(as always it's 100% okay for different people to like different things, this is just my Music Hot Take for today)

Show thread

don't get me wrong, i like some classic rock, but in the 60s and 70s the music industry was still figuring out things like "mixing music so that it sounds good" and "not writing misogynist lyrics"

Show thread

listen, it's only classic rock if it's got:

- an incredibly clean drum mix that somehow still sounds terrible
- incomprehensible lyrics aside from "yeah" "baby" "alright"
- a guitar solo with the worst sounding distortion you've ever heard
- and Somebody's Dad assures you that it's the greatest music that's ever been made

like "oh no soviet dissidents are being turned into thought control cyborgs!! this is not a thing that lex luthor would do"

Show thread

superman: red son 

it's like "ah, superman is trying to improve society, but he's doing it communistically, so it's bad"

Show thread

superman: red son spoilers 

red son is wild to me because it's a superman comic that concludes with "oh THANK GOD lex luthor took over the world!"

you ever listen to music that's mixed so that it sounds like they're rocking all the heck out, but, like, down the street?

notes on he/him hugging technique 

you start with a high five and grab his hand, pull him against you so the sides of your upper chests connect, and give him a slap on the back. for a very close friend you haven't seen in a while, you can keep a hand on his shoulder and comment on how his appearance has changed

just like. singing & playing songs on the guitar, for fun, has GREATLY improved my singing ability over the past couple years
