Look at Mr. Fancy Pants over here.

We call them "bready boomerangs" down under.

I don't think it wanted to express the general idea of how music should be, it just wanted to tell a story. a story with a lot of flawed characters. and a pretty great one imo.

and LOL @ Taylor's side project (Taylor Hawkins and the Coattail Riders). I heard their record. boo! I liked his vocals on the latest FF album though, on Sunday Rain. I don't really care for FF otherwise. I pretty much only like some tracks off Wasting Light and maybe 2 or 3 off Concrete and Gold.

Pretty cool how the lead vocalist and the drummer have the same skills, musically, more or less. both are singers. both are drummers. both are guitarists. although the only reason I like Dave Grohl is because he was Nirvana's drummer. oh, and he seems like a pretty chill guy.

I kinda love his side project. Their second record is really good, I used to jam that shit in high school -- back when I was first learning to drum; most of those parts seemed incomprehensible to me

I introduce you to Neige and what do you do? Jam out to a Foo Fighter's side project.

My life is full of despair.

Lorde is a privileged kid from one of the most expensive neighborhoods in the entire country, where her parents had her paired with various mentors in drama and music and writing as if hedging their bets on converting child to cash cow all along. Most thirteen-year-olds aren't paired with adult songwriter collaborators and so it's really not that shocking when working alongside a domestically-renowned artist with awards already up their sleeve eventually produces a song or two.

It's obviously still quite rare to go all international and score those chart positions, but let's not go buying into this "contrarian" hype as if she isn't just your typical pop success story.

There also happen to be no trains on her side of the harbor, either, making that accounting-oriented commute to the party rather impossible without a bus transfer.

Trippin' in which bathroom, Lorde? Filthy liar.

my friend from the north shore saw her on the ferry, did you ever think she might take the ferry and then the train? Did you ever think of that?

My friend is another mum, and when she first saw her, she thought "Omg that girl has so much hair. What if she has headlice? I'm going to move." And then she was like "Wait...that's Lorde."

She probably is walking distance from the Devonport ferry terminal, too, only distracted on the way by all the juice-matched Paleo brunch options on offer at all those swanky brick cafés.

Matcha latte made with coconut water kefir? Served with lacto-fermented vegetables and sprouted grain bread substitute?

I dunno. People in that suburb probably don't eat anything that cooked, or anything with that many carbs. She probably calls it "some kind of pastry from like the 90s or whatever"
