You absolute madman.

Yo. I listen to his music all day long. Seen him live and met him a bunch of times-- even had dinner with him once. He's an actual genius, rhythm isn't even the half of it. Just regarding musicianship, I've seen him do so many fucked up things to a piano that I can't even begin to get into it.

The fact that a lot of his melodies are based on Armenian folk songs is personally very sweet too, he grew up in a village in Armenia and borrows heavily, especially in his first album A Fable. Nowadays he's just off the chain:

Well, uninformed voters is probably a better identification strategy for this (not serious) study. You could pull it off with survey data. From there the results that we’re all assuming would be found could make a great argument for representative democracy. Obviously the issue then extends to “welp, the dumb masses have elected a dumb representative.” Or worse, they’ve elected a smart one that can market to them.

In reality, all a rational voter needs to do in the US is vote for a candidate whose agenda best reflects their interests. Somehow, that’s an impossible expectation for us.

    The past three years have done a yeoman's job of making me stop overestimating the intelligence of the average voter.

I need someone to run me some descriptive statistics in a study that can quantify average voter intelligence and then map it over the last 60 years.

Been listening to it all week. Love some of the tracks like Cops and Robbers.

edit: woops I thought we were talking about Shakey Graves. Reignwolf's new record is also dope!!

"Love your neighbor" is by no means a legitimate electable tag-line right now. The irony here isn't lost on me. But his description of the parties is pretty accurate-- not just in this piece-- yet unaddressed by most people in political discourse. And just to his credit, he does a great job of digging up anecdotal evidence from American political history to add an extra hint of 'troubling' to it all.

This writing style is gray and hilarious. I happened to be watching The Lobster on Netflix when I clicked this link, which is an uncanny coincidence because both pieces are horribly brilliant in the same way.
