    The selection of Sen. Orrin G. Hatch as the 2017 Utahn of the Year has little to do with the fact that, after 42 years, he is the longest-serving Republican senator in U.S. history, that he has been a senator from Utah longer than three-fifths of the state’s population has been alive. It has everything to do with recognizing: Hatch’s part in the dramatic dismantling of the Bears Ears and Grand Staircase-Escalante national monuments. His role as chairman of the Senate Finance Committee in passing a major overhaul of the nation’s tax code. His utter lack of integrity that rises from his unquenchable thirst for power.

Haven't seen much talk of that Circuit Des Yeux album around here but it's pretty brilliant (bit biased being semi-involved/friends with that Chicago noise/drone/folk scene at one point myself). I find myself listening to far less Drag City stuff these days now that I rely on Spotify and the like...a fairly major downside to the advent of streaming services being that labels who stick to their guns aren't as accessible. That's mostly on me obviously but still a pity.

    I'm glad I'm in good company here. I just saw TLJ and I think I liked it? There was some excellent stuff (Snoke's death scene), some weird stuff (Luke milking the weird crying alien?) and then some straight up bad stuff (ghost Yoda, the casino planet). In general I think it worked, though. My main problem with TFA was the weak characterization, and this was only marginally better in that respect. Kylo Ren is still the only character I give a damn about (though tbf Adam Driver is totally killing this role). Most of why I liked it comes down to how it handled its big reveals: I saw Snoke's death coming, but it's still easily one of the best Star Wars scenes we've had in decades, the darkening of Luke's character felt very appropriate to me (based on the fan outrage I was expecting him to gut Chewie or something - I genuinely don't understand why people seem to be so upset about something so tame), and the way it undercut the mystery around Rey's parentage was deflating in a way I wouldn't expect from something Disney has such tight creative control over. I appreciated how much bolder it was than TFA in trying to break away from the original trilogy, even if that resulted in some pretty strange scenes. TFA felt like solid, if overly reverent fan-fiction; this felt like better, slightly wackier fan-fiction.

    also there's a whole wealth of incredible ghostly ambient stuff that both clay and gorlen are involved in, together, solo, with other collaborators, etc. highly recommend picking through anything with their names on it on bandcamp and seeing where that takes you. if you haven't heard it, john wayne death scene from I think 2015 is a jaw-dropping tape

    I still love Andy Stott, at least the legendary EPs + Luxury Problems. I think he's gotten a bit boring since then, somehow? Just listened to Luxury Problems while I played some minecraft the other day as a matter of fact. So far my list for this year is basically: 01. Slowdive - Slowdive 02. Everything else I listened to a lot this year

    i'll post some sentences for my top 10 favs in case i haven't commented on them elsewhere: 1. crusades | this is a sickness and sickness will end really grandiose and extravagant melodic punk made by a band that clearly listens to a lot of black metal. 2. the menzingers | after the party sorta like the gaslight anthem, but good. 3. converge | the dusk in us maintains the extremely high quality standards set by their previous two albums. converge are the greatest metal band of all time. 4. japandroids | near to the wild heart of life for all the talk of japandroids beefing up their sound in the studio, it's pretty much the same kinds of songs they've always been writing. which, after five years, is more than welcome. 5. blanck mass | world eater both nastier and groovier than "dumb flesh" (though not quite as good). 6. broken social scene | hug of thunder i can't believe how much better this band is than arcade fire now lmfao 7. black anvil | as was didn't hear a lot of black metal that wowed me this year, but this was pretty great. as fun and catchy as this genre gets. 8. the war on drugs | a deeper understanding gets into this list mostly on the strength of its best tracks. "strangest thing" may be the best beer commercial lead-guitar song ever recorded. 9. alvvays | antisocialites put this off for way too long, it's even better than their very good debut! 10. godspeed you! black emperor | luciferian towers the least subtle presentation ever on a godspeed album, but the music bangs. much better than "asunder..."

    watched a couple episodes of dragons: race to the edge with the kid the other day and it was pretty decent it's so weird though how so much children's tv still relies on all these archaic conversational tropes for a cheap laugh that don't bear any resemblance to things that actual people say irl so kids are conditioned by tv to think that there are certain things you say in certain situations and it's funny because...it's funny, but...it's not

    Hi Mike, I first wanted to thank you for your book Gorilla Mindset. It really helped me be a better man and take control of my life in a way that I badly needed. I also wanted to thank you for leading by example regarding how to fight back against people who are trying to put you down. I was wondering if I could ask you a personal question regarding some issues in my life to get some advice from someone who has helped me so much already: I currently am married with a baby and am living in my wife's parents' basement. Our marriage has at times been tense because I tend to be too much of an alpha for her. I feel like there's a chance she's going to leave me in the next year or so, and though I luckily have some alimony money from a previous divorce, I'm afraid that a lot of the unhinged things I've written on the internet will make it difficult to get custody of our baby. Any advice? And if you were me, how would you change my living situation, which is admittedly a bit emasculating? Thanks again for everything!

    Saw Angel Olsen last night and enjoyed it a lot! it was more theatrical than I expected, and Angel was in a very good mood it seemed because she kept giggling during verses for some reason. Sister live is incredible Also she asked everyone what she should do after the tour and someone yelled "send a fax" which she agreed is what she would do. She then told a story about her cat which was also good.
