It's Independence Day today in the US. It is important that we recognize today both that this country is badly screwed up, but also that it can be fixed if we commit to doing so. Those are some of the most important parts of patriotism. Celebrating your country without recognizing its flaws is not patriotic, it is nationalistic.

Even though news of some global cataclysm could reach us instantaneously these days, it now takes a long time to realize the significance and bring it to our attention among all the noise.

The new album is already my AOTY. Loving the return to the world of gothic metal. Gothic rock in general is past due for a comeback.

As our governments grapple with a global pandemic, @Shell@twitter.com and others are lobbying for handouts and looser environmental protection. 🙄Big Oil has spent at least €250 million to lobby the EU since 2010 to delay, weaken and sabotage climate action. We need #FossilFreePolitics 🛢️

I'm going to try and move away from Spotify in the next few weeks. My current plan is to use NewPipe and playlists for streaming music on my phone and DVD/youtube-dl (github.com/yausername/dvd/) in order to save music. And I can continue to use invidious/yewtu.be along with FreeTube for music on my desktop.

Though I enjoy the ease of use and features with Spotify, along with the ability to support creators, I still feel the level of tracking and coupling with Facebook to be concerning. On top of this the money that creators get is considerably less than buying their music directly. This way I can use the money that I'd have spent on premium to buy albums direct from the creators (most are independent so even labels won't get a cut).

I've always wanted to know what movement we are in now, artistically and culturally, after postmodernism. Is it New Sincerity?
