some music that i recommend:
kanye west - all of it, especially my beautiful dark twisted fantasy
kendrick lamar - all of it, especially to pimp a butterfly
taylor swift - red, lover
charli xcx - charli
carly rae jepsen - emotion
drake - take care, if you're reading this it's too late
beyonce - lemonade
dua lipa - future nostalgia
frank ocean - all of it, especially blonde
billie eilish - when we all fall asleep where do we go?
lizzo - cuz i love you
chance the rapper - acid rap
adam driver is soooooo good in marriage story it should be a crime. i love scarjo and she did great but driver was something else. the characters are written so interestingly and the actors just elevate the emotion to another level. i had only ever seen him in star wars and he was fine in that, but this is amazing.

grief, cw meta
i really never understood the point of cw before. i included them as formality but i never really cared about other people's.
but i was watching brooklyn nine-nine and there's an episode where the main character gets a motorcycle. i had to go sit down for a couple minutes after that one.
i don't really expect anyone to cw motorcycles but now i understand the feeling of just randomly encountering something triggering.
harsh music, lynching
listened to xiu xiu's "girl with a basket of fruit". terrifying, loud, abrasive, everything one would expect from xx. "mary turner, mary turner" was particularly horrifying through its depiction of a lynching in very clear-cut and unambiguous lyrics.
also listened to scott walker's "bish bosch". the world portrayed is devoid of color or beauty. everything has been destroyed. in many ways it reminds me of david bowie's "blackstar", only the death is the death of the world.
been listening to a lot of music about grief.
sufjan stevens' "carrie and lowell" was underwhelming, i suppose i just don't connect to that kind of music.
on the other hand, mount eerie's "a crow looked at me" was a powerfully uncompromising dive into a widower's trauma. the spoken word style added a lot to the effect. i connected to so much of phil elverum's anguish. very much recommend.
started reading akata witch on the recommendation of @imani. it's pretty good but it's absolutely nothing like harry potter, don't read it if you're looking for a non-problematic replacement.
setting is america, forgot to mention
went well. got the mayor and police chief to kneel. really feeling the spirit of revolution.
p*ki, reader, wish i was a writer. sometime stan.
