Heartless Last Show
I think after today I’m going to replace scrolling through tumblr every day with reading cause i haven’t done that enough lately sounds like a good daily life decision i guess
Jerry and George get it.
this is the single funniest thing and I think about it all the time and cry laughing
a homeless guy just said to me “do you tell jokes to make people laugh or to make people think you’re funny” and that is the most profound shit ive ever experienced
definitely the latter. feels bad now that i think about it.
humor is literally so complicated i think about humor so much that i don’t think anything is funny anymore but also man is everything so funny
yo i was literally thinking about how much i wanna be in a dreampop/shoegaze something band earlier today
CAN WEWE CAN DO IT
i will play drums or bass because i can’t afford pedals

Why couldn’t @horse_ebooks be left alone as a weird internet phenomenon? Because while it might not be run by a major corporation, it maintains the same ideology: that anything that attracts attention is too valuable to be left to its followers. It has to be turned into a tool for promotion, be that corporate promotion or the self-promotion of an artist.
Jacob Bakkila could have made his own Twitter account to post gibberish to. But the point was to appropriate something people were already paying attention to. What we thought was marketing rediscovered as art has turned out to be art rediscovered as marketing. The total victory of corporate media and social ownership as a way of looking at the world is that we can’t just like anything without it becoming part of a brand or a product, or without somebody taking it over to stick their name all over it. What’s disappointing is the confirmation that this is just the world we live in.
Best piece about The Horse that I’ve read so far.
I feel like this is true and it’s why people were so drawn to horse_ebooks in the first place - because it was presumed to be a robot it was presumed to not have any motives of its own, and in today’s world where everything is a “branded experience” and everyone is trying to either “engage” you or mine your thoughts and feelings for marketing data, motiveless randomness feels like poetry.
IM BRINGING JORDAAN MASON TO PITTSBURGH
This is so fcking important oh my god he actually replied to my email and said he’d come do a one-off show in Pittsburgh as long as the show would make enough money to cover his bus fare. Holy shit I’m so pumped
