… by Stone Temple Pilots (San Diego, California). Released 2000.
I like the song, and the colours on the video, and the vocalist too. Apparently, I’m still into the gracefully tormented dark junkie rocker look.
Newsflash: Scott Weiland (the hot vocalist) has been replaced by Chester Bennington (Linkin Park).
I’m pro Scott Weiland so…

going on rants never works out for me but fuck it this is a long flight…ill start with a story
My favorite poet is william blake..
When I was younger. I had one teacher that didn’t like his poetry.. her opinion was that he shouldn’t have been so revered as many had put up so high. I didn’t even understand half of what william blake wrote. But I loved the words. I loved the drawings with his poems and I loves how his sentences made me read them 4 or 5 times in a row until they jus steamrolled over my brain.. I was ride or die for william blake.. But was I gonna quit school because my teacher wasn’t.. Nope.. I wasn’t about to argue with her either. I didn’t care.. it was between me and william blake. The teachers opinion didn’t matter.
That fact that she had an opinion made my opinion more valid .. Because I made up my mind what I liked and I stood by it.. Nothing influenced me.. And I hope u guys feel the same way and also feel strong about what u believe or what u feel inside..
My all time favorite daft punk song was “make love” from the last album, not the bangers that you might expect but the subtlety of that record was amazing and i love the production on it..
the new album i do like a lot as well.. my favorite song being doing it right with panda bear i think its my favorite tune of the year so far. i quite like the album .. my twitters were sarcastic.. per usual social media to me is more of performance art.
but lemme try and explain my reviews of the album
I spent most of my life in florida..
Right now.. In my life.. I don’t want music that represents excessive blissed out easy listening. I grew up being forced to listen to hotel california..
And Im also not into the white bearded rich malibu palm tree los angeles that it paints.. LA is great because its real and gritty so that just turned me off…
I jus imagine it to be bearded white men in fancy cars and white suits being excessive … anyway I’m old… 34 years old..
When I first heard daft punk I was in my teens and going to my first parties that played dance music.. With no words.. That was new world to me.
Maybe I’m in denial because I’m old.. But this album was obviously for people that enjoy breazy walks with their pets and smoking cigarettes in malibu.. I do not. I spent most of my life in florida..making sandwiches..mowing lawns or parking motorcycles.. There wasn’t anything I hated more then the eagles and micheal mcdonald.. I wouldn’t even listen to fleetwood mac until I was 28.. An adult.. Then I got it. Eventually i even fell in love with stevie nicks..
But I have her… Lots of songs.. I don’t need daft punk remind me that I’m old. I still like to turn shit upside down and make noise..
When I make statements on twitter. I usually think they are just for myself.. but they always become rumor and gossip blog fodder.. if you know me in real life you might know I’m not a complete asshole, even though all my girlfriends all think that i am
I also know that nobody will post this letter on a news source..
But over 50 influential blogs and music wedbsites posted my twitter one liners… Within an hour Why? Because it was funny controversial and will bring readers into there site and hopefully drive up traffic. That’s pretty much what I’m good at.. being obnoxious. Making people feel one way or another. i agree with everything that daft punk said in the billboard interview…. thats exactly how i feel about mainstream edm as well.
but for some of the fans to get mad at me for having an opinion .. thats just ignorant.. I also don’t think any daft punk stans will read this.. They jus think me as a bitter dj that is jealous of daft punk. they also don’t even know my msic.. They probably only googled me and decided to write on my facebook because that’s there way of showing their love for daft punk.. I highly doubt they even thought thru my sarcasm on twitter… Pretty much 95 % of my twitter is that.. making fun of social media by using it incorrectly ..
but I am jealous of daft punk because their fans did blindly get moved and angry when someone doesn’t like their idol.. haha yeah i am! No one boycotted pitchfork or philly weekly when they trashed the last major lazer album!
where’s my navy!?! I’m joking i love bad reviews they make me work harder and think more.. even though u always risk over intellectualizing music..
So if u actually care about music not about percieved gossip and trashy blogs.. and you read through this I appreciate it. Thanks
While I think this is an awesome rant, I would have to disagree that 34 is “old.” Granted, he might just be saying that as he treats social media as performance art. You decide.
Diplo was ranked #28 in Fast Company’s Most Creative People of 2013. He founded the record label, Mad Decent.
His music really hits me in the right spots: he started out with electronic music and then experimented with different types of genres and mixed them all up.

… is a genre of science fiction that features steam powered machinery (and fashion!).
… is a subgenre of speculative fiction, usually set in an anachronistic Victorian or quasi-Victorian alternate history setting. It could be described by the slogan “What the past would look like if the future had happened sooner.” It includes fiction with science fiction, fantasy or horror themes.

Not much into sci-fi, but I’m definitely into fashion (and shoes), crazy horses, and sick looking places.

Chris Brown just got more attractive… and so did the director of this music video.
You want a physicist to speak at your funeral. You want the physicist to talk to your grieving family about the conservation of energy, so they will understand that your energy has not died.
You want the physicist to remind your sobbing mother about the first law of thermodynamics; that no energy gets created in the universe, and none is destroyed. You want your mother to know that all your energy, every vibration, every Btu of heat, every wave of every particle that was her beloved child remains with her in this world.
You want the physicist to tell your weeping father that amid energies of the cosmos, you gave as good as you got.
And at one point you’d hope that the physicist would step down from the pulpit and walk to your brokenhearted spouse there in the pew and tell him that all the photons that ever bounced off your face, all the particles whose paths were interrupted by your smile, by the touch of your hair, hundreds of trillions of particles, have raced off like children, their ways forever changed by you.
And as your widow rocks in the arms of a loving family, may the physicist let her know that all the photons that bounced from you were gathered in the particle detectors that are her eyes, that those photons created within her constellations of electromagnetically charged neurons whose energy will go on forever.
And the physicist will remind the congregation of how much of all our energy is given off as heat. There may be a few fanning themselves with their programs as he says it. And he will tell them that the warmth that flowed through you in life is still here, still part of all that we are, even as we who mourn continue the heat of our own lives.
And you’ll want the physicist to explain to those who loved you that they need not have faith; indeed, they should not have faith. Let them know that they can measure, that scientists have measured precisely the conservation of energy and found it accurate, verifiable and consistent across space and time. You can hope your family will examine the evidence and satisfy themselves that the science is sound and that they’ll be comforted to know your energy’s still around. According to the law of the conservation of energy, not a bit of you is gone; you’re just less orderly. Amen.
