Re: Recommend one artist

Ooh ooh, can I do another? I pick Okkervil River, especially their album The Stage Names, and most especially the song "Our Life Is Not A Movie Or Maybe". It's hard to explain it without hearing it... indie rock that is soft but involves some wonderful yelling, fantastic melodies, and the...

Re: Incredibly Lonely... Is This Normal?

That was nice, functionally_stupid. As a fellow high-schooler, and a girl, I thought I might weigh in. We all get lonely sometimes... some more than others. Once in a while I get terrible bouts of loneliness and feel like I will always be alone. Then I realize that I am wrong. You're going to be fin...

Re: Beliefs That You Cannot Prove

I believe in the internal monologue. It's kind of difficult to phrase, but I believe that everyone's thoughts, the best and most insightful of them, tell their only true story. To put it better: I think everyone, all the time, is narrating a memoir inside their head. And I believe that someday, some...

Five pages and not a single mention of Arcade Fire? A tragedy! Or maybe they're too mainstream now? Well, if you don't know them, check them out immediately. Otherwise, I recommend Andrew Bird...indie rock/folk/awesome. Fantastic musicianship and lyrics that are totally unexpected and make me laugh ...

Re: I Am America (And So Can You!)

Well, "am" is a passive verb (it's not an action, not a thing you can actually DO). I think that's the reason it's wrong. However, it works as a title for the book because 1) it draws attention, 2) it makes a joke, and 3) it plays off of the DIY culture of America and feeling that we can d...
