IMDb calls this a "comedy documentary". UNDERSTATEMENT OF THE CENTURY. The tagline is a much better descriptor: Comedy can be found in the darkest of places.

Chris Gethard talks about depression and alcoholism and suicidality, and manages to be funny and empathetic at the same time. I did not once feel like the butt of a joke while listening to him. That is an amazing feeling.

The emotional rollercoaster he takes you on is very much like the one you board when you open your Tumblr dashboard - one minute, he's telling you about some of the worst times in his life, and the next, you're laughing along with him. It's one of the best things I've experienced. This AV Club review says it all better than I could.

If you're so inclined, check it out. I think it's worth your time.

1. This reaction video to T-Swift's Look What You Made Me Do. I understand the point of view of everyone in that video. The only thing I have to dispute is that pop music can ABSOLUTELY be revolutionary, Dominic. And T-Swift is pretty revolutionary right now.

2. ...Ready For It?, T-Swift's new single. ALL THE LYRICAL COMPLEXITY i wanted from Look What You Made Me Do is here. T-Swift has not changed god bless. also. THAT BEAT.

3. This mashup of Tag You're It by Melanie Martinez and Look What You Made Me Do by Taylor Swift. The beat is SICK, Melanie adds some much needed lyrical intricacy, and everything is amaze. I am SHOOK.

BONUS: Halsey - Bad At Love (stripped). So much good music coming out right now, guys, I can't handle it it's too beautiful.

Okay, so [personal profile] treonb [personal profile] frith_in_thorns (i am so bad with names, good god) recced me the podcast Wolf 359, which I am listening to now! Along with Welcome to Night Vale, Lingthusiasm, Revolutions, This Week in Parasitism, and a whole assorted bunch of linguistics, biology, and history podcasts that I will slowly go through and keep or cull as I wish. This has the effect of making me feel SO PRODUCTIVE while on the bus it isn't even funny.

(I've kinda forgotten about Wolf 359 a little bit in the process oops.)

Can someone answer me two questions? Why are these things free? And why are they so good? I literally fall asleep to the sound of a podcast I heard properly during the day I mean what. THEY ARE TAKING OVER MY LIFE SEND HELP.

Also, I'd rec all the podcasts I've named up there, they are excellent, why aren't there more women, why isn't there more about colonial history, maybe i'll podcast someday (SOMEONE STOP ME FROM CONTINUING DOWN THAT LINE OF THOUGHT I'VE GOT TOO MUCH TO DO ALREADY).

This is what an excited Tanya sounds like.

The absolute best Shoot vid I've seen thus far, and I've seen plenty. Set to a cover of 99 Problems that I originally found on the Blacklist, to my delight. Features girls with guns and a Shaw + food montage. What's not to love?

There is secondary audio/dialogue layered over the music, in case that's the kind of thing that ticks you off in vids, but IMHO it's handled really well in this vid. It's all so well timed and doesn't clash with the music. It's really well edited.

Read this. Read all of it.

I like to think of it as how to insult someone with class.

In other news, I'm changing the way I write my f's, because I don't like it anymore, and changing the way I write my letters is something I do every so often.

Also, Taylor Swift's first album, despite being very country, is also very good. I think I even rank it above Speak Now (which isn't saying much, because Speak Now as an album is a disorganised mess).
