this chunker. Picked it up after seeing it referenced in an argument about whether and music are elitist. Another moment at the library where I've ordered a that's looked more intimidating than expected at pickup, but so far I'm really enjoying it.

As I left the pub last night I was reminded how much I hate the fucking Offspring. Some of it is personal - a girlfriend (who was cheating on me, but hey) used to really like them and sing that "pretty fly for a white guy" song. Badly. But the pub was playing this:

...and it's just the shittiest unthinking 90s apolitical lyrics where you look back and think "how on earth did we let this pass itself off as rebellious or ?!"
I'd wiped it from my memory, happily, but hearing it again reminded me why I used "pop punk" as a derogatory term for the first 15 years of this century.

in retrospect it was fucking reckless to enter a dangerous ruin during a storm but I was so glad we did. Piercefield is a huge neoclassical house, entirely gutted. SAVE FOR these iron staircase brackets by Bonomi. I'd lived in Chepstow all my life but never managed to see them til yesterday. it is completely wild to me that these things still live there. you could literally make your fortune with them (tbf the whole effing thing would fall down if removal was attempted)

Some interesting analysis of how Parasite is in many ways counterproductive to the left politics it seems to espouse

band turns broken piano into 20 instrument contraption 

Unsurprising news:
I really liked when I saw it earlier today. Normally a film shifting tones like this loses something from both the light and dark sides, but not this. Expertly handled and I never quite knew what to expect.
Strongly recommended!
