Today my wife stopped me during my outdoor chore time to inquire as to why I had dug a particular hole on our property. I paused and felt a chill up my spine as I was visited by a specter — slender and pale, wrapped in ropes and weight like a beast of burden, wielding blades and spikes — who whispered in my ear, rendering me captive, gripped by the icy paralysis of profound nihilist truth, and I uttered, as if mastered by this ghostly puppeteer-mountaineer of legend: “because it wasn’t there.”

With their numbers looking bad, a brief celebration of Soundgarden. It took me like two decades to fall in love with this band, they were fine but somehow just not my style. Their depth was pretty amazing. Very much admire their ability to make funky time signatures feel very natural through highlighting them with striking transitions. And long songs feel compact, efficient. Ben Shepherd, looking back, influenced me greatly as a bass player without me noticing. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dbckIuT_YDc
One of course pauses when wanting to call something like this "funny", but holy mother, ignoring the music/edit — if nothing else, it is the end-all, be-all of freudian slips. I do not expect to see anything close to its raw magnificence for the rest of my life. Just fucking incredible.

I can only assume people who voted for pretty hate machine over paul's boutique were voting with their sad and broken 1989 brain, because one of those records holds up and that ain't it #albumbowl
