This Shit is So Daft Punk

25 12 2010

I know there are maybe two people tops who ever read my blog, and both of them are not only connected via real life but also Facebook, so they are continuously inundated with this stuff and they are probably getting tired of it very quickly.


I love Daft Punk. My boyfriend reintroduced me to it, more than a decade after my family convinced me that it was a bad thing to listen to any music that could be associated with Satan (i.e. Not Country). At a point in time when it’s becoming harder and harder for me to actively identify myself with subculture and ideology in general, it’s nice to find music filled with movement and passion, but lacking self-righteousness and frivolity (I’m looking straight at you, Conor Fucking Oberst).

Their live music is even more awesome than their recorded music because you can put in headphones and dance around with your eyes closed and you can pretend that you’re a blind person at their concert and dancing in a mysteriously empty space, and the crowd is everywhere with you because you can HEAR THEM.

On the non-Daft Punk side of things, other items of attraction are:
-Dinosaurs – Silesaurs! SILESAURS! Proto-sauropods that fall just short of classification as actual dinosaurs, and I love ’em so much. I keep imagining myself walking one around on a leash – they are like giant lizard greyhounds. I would look super classy walking one and wearing a tuxedo.
-Pokemon – Never gonna stop, guys. Quit trying to make me feel weird for playing Pokemon at age 21. I’m totally pre-ordering both Black and White versions, and I’m disappearing for a few days while I figure out the new-world immersion. Gotta catch ’em all, motherfucker.
-Comics – I found Jess Fink’s diary comic! I was so sad about the end of ‘Chester 5000’, which was super-hot and porny:
