#1 - WHAT IS THE ONE ALBUM (OR EP OR SONG) THAT YOU THINK SHOULD BE THE VERY NEXT MUSICAL THING THAT EVERYONE PRESSES PLAY ON THE NEXT TIME THEY FIND THEMSELVES THINKING “WHAT SHOULD I LISTEN TO NOW”?
Ok ok ok, so I am notoriously not good at knowing new music so instead I’ll do a top 3 songs everyone should listen to almost immediately after listening to my new single SUDDEN LOVE AFFAIR.
1. The Mavericks - Dance The Night Away.
2. ATB - 9pm (Till I Come)
3. Fontaines DC - Too Real
4. (just for good measure Paul Simon - Graceland)
These are all essential listens, do not waste another moment.
#2 - WHAT IS THE ONE MOVIE OR TV SHOW THAT YOU THINK SHOULD BE NEXT IN EVERYBODY’S NETFLIX QUEUE (OK, DOESN’T HAVE TO BE NETFLIX, WE’RE ALL INTERNET ADULTS HERE AND KNOW HOW TO FIND ANYTHING ONLINE, ONE WAY OR ANOTHER)?
I saw Green Book in the cinema the other day, and although we accidentally went into the hard-of-hearing, very loud, subtitle version of the film, it was really really great. Mahershala Ali is such an incredible talent.
Watch it in the cinema before you have to watch a crap stream on goodsexymovies.net/org and can’t see the subtle nuances of the actors work…
#3. I (AND BY “I” I MEAN “THE PERSON THAT IS READING THIS”) AM GOING TO THE BOOK STORE (OK, PROBABLY AMAZON) TO FIND THE VERY NEXT BOOK THAT I WILL BE PUTTING SOME EXTREMELY VALUABLE ‘ME-TIME' ASIDE FOR. WHICH BOOK WOULD YOU GET, IF YOU WERE ME (AND, I SUPPOSE, YOU HADN’T ALREADY READ WHAT YOU’RE ABOUT TO SUGGEST)?
I reckon I would get two books - start of with something sensible to keep you on your toes and get to grips with reality - the latest Guinness World Records book for sure. It’s full of useless information that can impress your friends, family, and even your colleagues, at the bar, on a date, or in the local shopping mall.
And then, once you’ve ploughed through that book with adequate ferocity and effervescence, I would move swiftly onto The Outsider/The Stranger by Albert Camus because it’s weird, wonderful, and makes you freak out in a pleasant way. Or The Castle by Kafka, which is essentially an unfinished essay on how to unsubscribe from every mailing list you subscribed to when you were 17.
#4 - WHAT IS THE ONE WEBSITE (OR JUST ANY OLD INTERNET THING: APP, GIF, SERVICE, WHATEVER) THAT YOU WOULD GET REALLY DOWN IN THE DUMPS ABOUT IF IT WERE TO SUDDENLY GO AWAY?
This is all you need to feel ok:
#5 - AND FINALLY… PLEASE GIVE ONE COMPLETELY UNAIDED RECOMMENDATION THAT YOU THINK EVERYONE SHOULD START DOING / USING / WATCHING / EATING / THINKING / QUITING / ETC-ING TO MAKE THEIR LIVES A LITTLE BIT MORE BETTER AND/OR BEARABLE.
Everyone should start calling out abusers, and stop aiding people who they know are evil. Stop turning a blind eye and actually call people out on their actions. Just because they’re cool, in a seemingly powerful position and/or make good music, doesn’t mean they shouldn’t be called out/arrested. I see people posting on social media about famous musicians that are evil, and saying it’s disgusting but they all almost certainly know of someone that that is acting that way in their social circle. I get that it’s easy to shout and complain about it when the person in question is famous, because it doesn’t seem real. And I understand that it’s scary to admit that someone you know may have physically, emotionally, and/or psychologically abused someone - ignorance can be bliss, but that only works if it is true ignorance. Everyone needs to have the same courage as the survivors that speak out against it.
