“The future is always just a metaphor for something better than where we are now.”

Mike Powell, "Our Own Private Saturns" (via fieryfalcon)

For Gillis, Pimp C is as legitimate a force as the Moody Blues, and Deee-Lite’s “Groove Is in the Heart” as powerful as Nirvana’s “Lithium”. Wittingly or not, this is utopia. Listen and you will realize that the horniness that both Rod Stewart and Lil Wayne feel is the same. Laugh now, but somewhere outside us, in the great interpersonal cloud we call culture, the needle has moved. 

Wow, this is so, so good.

Day 284: Uncle Dusty

Hey- this is a new Wandy. Wandy is a real band now, and we will be putting out an EP soon…? This is a song about domestic ideas I think (Jacob and your heart are the only things that can say what it is TRULY about)- This one- unlike most Wandys- does not use any feedback loops, but makes heavy use of SK-1 as the main instrument (drums and organ). The keyboard lead was played by Zane during his second take of hearing the song. The production and… a lot of it was heavily Alex G. inspired.

Please Listen!!!
Justice McThanks

This is a good song.
