Sidebar: Lil Yachty does suck. But on his first mixtape and the Broccoli feature, he was just a kid having fun, and there's something appealing about someone that makes fun music and doesn't care if it kinda sucks. That's why Teenage Emotions flopped-- he was trying way too hard, and still sucked. It was over-commercialized garbage.

I'm still debating. Probably depends on how busy my work schedule is for next week.

Original German, if anyone cares:

    Ich lebe mein Leben in wachsenden Ringen,

    die sich über die Dinge ziehn.

    Ich werde den letzten vielleicht nicht vollbringen,

    aber versuchen will ich ihn.


    Ich kreise um Gott, um den uralten Turm,

    und ich kreise jahrtausendelang;

    und ich weiß noch nicht: bin ich ein Falke, ein Sturm

    oder ein großer Gesang.

Or if you prefer:


I just check /r/wholesomememes a few times a day.

Writing a screenplay! Musician gets fired from restaurant job, takes the opportunity to pursue music full time, starts neglecting his girlfriend. Cue breakup, then he writes a breakup album-- the best he's ever recorded. He learns to survive alone.

It's kind of a Künstlerroman. Sitting right at 18 pages right now, but I have quite a bit still to write. And this is just the first draft.

Yeah I couldn't finish it either

ISIS just figured out what Ryan Holiday did 5 years ago: if you give the media companies a story that'll sell, they'll report on it regardless of its effects.

Oh man it's taken a bunch of fucking up and learning to get to this point.

If you haven't seen the full Questlove lecture w Red Bull you should. His memoir Mo Meta Blues is also excellent, I've read it 2 or 3 times now.

Not a lecture but almost always misunderstood-- Kanye explaining what he means when he says "I am a god."
