I’m over bitching about Tinder. If you dive deep enough into the Reddit rabbit hole to discover the next stage of human evolution in terms of mate-finding, you’ll find the answer: androids, and the various uses they provide. Maybe you find that disgusting. But it is what it is. Time’s arrow marches forward, and I, for one, have come to terms with it. We were swiping away on this algorithmic machine, but what we didn’t realize was that the machine was also swiping away at us. Are we doomed? Not really. Wait until we separate the abstract unconscious from our biochemistry, then the fun will begin! This is synthetic love. It’s hip right now, so go check Monger out, and try to see the bigger picture.
Radikio – blindness
Most of what we see is not real, and most of what is real we don’t see.
I thought I was over my vaporwave phase, but clearly not. The Internet-est genre of music out there can only be understood as nostalgia-inducing navel gazing. If you’ve ever delved deep into your thoughts while listening to anything resembling vaporwave, you’ve accessed a different dimension of thought entirely unbeknownst to you, plain and simple. The next time you decide to do the same deep-brain processing, however, think about love, instead of pink moons and severed Roman statue heads. Think about the modern generation’s blindness when it comes to finding love in others, while entirely forgetting everything else that deserves more love than the one you give to others. Do it to this track, too.
