battle of the bands!

Had the joy of being part of Gainesville's Worst Show Ever 3 last week, a three hour musical extravaganza where the worst performance wins.

It was very fun :)

We had two people who knew what they were doing, 3 who didn't, and one man on the musical blender

Reading!

I've followed the typical path of reading a ton in elementary school until Middle / High School where it becomes an intollerable chore and the only books you are allowed to read are "classics" which no matter how good they may be, are very difficult to appreciate when your grade is being held hostage by memorizing character's names and major themes.

I've finally gotten to the point in my engineering degree where I never have to read another book again and kinda miss it now.

Anyways, point is - one book a month. Easy, punchy, measurable. Trying to make this my first new year's resolution that actually gets done. And if you have any book reccomendations I'd love to hear them, otherwise will be reading though previous #bookclub posts :)

Just got a chance to listen to Spring Heeled Jack, and really digged it, thanks for sharing it!

Got introduced to Guster through this clickhole article: https://www.clickhole.com/new-artist-spotlight-clickhole-invites-you-to-check-ou-1840269510 . It's kinda an embarrassing way to find out about a band, but definitely digging their sound

house:

We have bedbugs! Wheeee!

So far its just in my roommate's room and hasn't been spotted anywhere else. Still very spooked. We're taking the nuclear option and trying to nuke them as fast as possible.

-

jobs:

Graduating next semester and need to find a place to work ASAP. Worried that I'm already too late.

-

boardgames:

Started Pandemic Legacy season two! It's much more different than I was expecting but pretty hype. I'm excited :)

-

culture:

Finally saw Rocky Horror Picture Show, and it was a lot of fun! Enough that we're making another trip to drag our one friend who was busy that day as an excuse to see it again

Moving:

This week I'm moving out of the apartment I've been at for the last two years and into a rented house one block into the sketchy part of town where the rent is dirt cheap. Got into a bit of a scuffle with the UHaul by knocking the paneling off of a parking garage that was ever so slightly too short to fit the truck. They said they'd call about what's going to happen with that sometime in August, still waiting to hear how bad is bad. Meanwhile, I'm boxing up everything I own and realizing I probably have too many boardgames.

Miscellania:

Tonight is Wallace and Grommit Night for UF's boardgame club, and I've been buying cheese and crackers for that. Super hyped for all the new people joining in Fall. We've been doing house parties on the regular and that's been one of the hilights of the year. I've also been getting slowly into competitive rap battle at the behest of my friend Evan. It's a lot sillier a scene than I was expecting.

I really hate subtitles - unless the whole movie is completely unintelligible, I'd rather miss a few lines then turn the movie into an audiobook. Whenever subtitles are on, it's really hard to ignore them, and then I miss appreciating the visuals as much.

There's so much whiplash going from complaining about the grammar of "Similar Effect To" to immediately abolishing the death penalty.

Also, why do science bloggers inevitably rag on psychology?

Oh it's 100% not new stuff, just a general music-related thing I've been up to. Tho since there's four of us adding to it a good chunk of the songs I haven't heard before (and I've been deliberately avoiding listening to until the trip to keep things fresher) Should have some actual new songs for next week's thread :)

Going on a roadtrip this weekend, so me and the other guys are trying to pool together 35 hours of music,

Here's what we have so far: <iframe src='https://open.spotify.com/playlist/3JADPrNgQgFRUR6PjlR1vU' width='300' height='80' frameborder='0' allowtransparency='true'>

The new stuff I've been listening to is gentle doom prog https://kauan.bandcamp.com/album/kaiho by Russians living in Ukraine and singing in Finnish
