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.

"Love your neighbor" is by no means a legitimate electable tag-line right now. The irony here isn't lost on me.

“My Jesus, my rules.”
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.
- A huge bitcoin price crash occurs a few hours before we set sail.
It’s important to consider that Adult Swim also produces a daily livestreamed show called FishCenter consisting of the Adult Swim studio’s office lobby fish tank with a green screen behind it. They frequently take call-ins at 708-SWIM-FUN.
