Dear Android,


I’m so glad your last update screwed up my phone & had it rebooting with a ghost in the machine and acting 10 kinds of crazy. That thing I just did, that I found on the internet…don’t make me do that again. Make sure your updates are stable. MMK, we understand each other now?

Godspeed You! Black Emperor’s take-down on Awards


The quote that had me both in awe & stitches is this:

…we’ve been plowing our field on the margins of weird culture for almost 20 years now, and “this scene is pretty cool but what it really fucking needs is an awards show” is not a thought that’s ever crossed our minds.

 

You really should read the whole thing, you should also buy their album from the margins of weird culture where they have been luminescent for well over two decades, and have earned an even bigger chunk of my heart as a result of being so forthright in the face of accolades.
