Food means more than it used to—what we do with it means more. Picking this restaurant or that bunch of carrots isn’t just a decision of interest or appetite; it’s telling a story, it’s choosing a tribe.
So what are we doing with the time we save by outsourcing our food preparation to corporations and 16-year-old burger flippers? Working, commuting to work, surfing the Internet and, perhaps most curiously of all, watching other people cook on television.
What is this you maybe asking?Why Do I like to pose all the time or get a certain scenery?I like to get a certain cenry with my cosplays or edits because I want the image I have in my head to fit exactly the way I imagined it to be.I also like taking photography of the sky or even the woods. The sky,esspicaly the night sky is just so beautfuil,and I love it I feel so connected.I feel as If someone up there is just looking down at me,this puny little person I also really like eyes.I always have,and not just beacuse of TribeTwelve by Adam Rosner,but because I always seem to have this obssession with eyes. I love how you can just see diffrent colors in peoples eyes. If you look real close you would see diffrent colors depending on the color the same is with the sky if you look real close before the sun is setting you can see diffrent colors and as night shifts you can,if your lucky,see other conestalitions and planets. Sometimes I like to wonder what other life forms live up there,we cant just be the only life forms living on one planet (including the whole animail kindgdom) can we?What if there was someone or something out there that humans haven’t laid there eyes on?The universe is so mysetrious and were living in a big puzzle peace of a thousand puzzel pieces. The reason I like taking pictures of myself is sometimes I just like to see how I will progess through out the years.Including through my dissablities and what not.Im so happy that earth can be such a beautfuil thing,with bright ideas.
Pop punk was one of the great fads of the late 1990s and early
2000s. With bands such as Good Charlotte, The Used, My Chemical Romance,
Panic! At The Disco, etc. captivating the “mall core” middle school
aged students all over the world, this period and genre of alt rock is
filled with nostalgia for most millennials. Enter Andy Black of Black
Veil Brides and his side project under his own moniker. Black’s debut
album, The Shadow Side can best be described as a definite
throwback for these years of yore. With hooks that stab like knives,
this goth-punk-pop LP proves than Andy Black is not ready to give up on
this genre. Unlike contemporaries such as Gerard Way, who abandoned My
Chemical Romance to start a solo career that embraces Britpop over
mainstream emo, Andy Black clearly enjoys embracing The Shadow Side, pun completely intended.
Many of the tracks on the album definitely feel like they were
written during the golden age of pop-punk music. Yet there is also
something innovative about these songs, particularly the opener
“Homecoming King.” On this track, one can definitely hear a heavy synth
pop influence, combining the sound of Neon Trees and Imagine Dragons
with Good Charlotte and Sum 41. This combination transfuses throughout
the album and takes Andy Black’s pop punk into the new decade. The
grouping, when added with Black’s impassioned lyrics makes for an
incredible recipe of alternative rock.
Yet, it’s not just Black who deserves to be commended on this
album. Veteran pop punk producer John Feldmann expert editing and mixing
skills are in full effect on The Shadow Side. Feldmann was also
able to get many of the musicians he has worked with in the past to
contribute to this album as well, including Ashton Irwin from 5 Seconds
Of Summer, Joel Madden from Good Charlotte and Rian Dawson from All Time
Low. All of these individuals really did great work, and their efforts
truly have paid off.
The album ends with the energetic piano ballad “The Void,” which
seems to be a perfect closing to a near perfect debut LP. Although the
golden age of this kind of music may be long gone, the emotion and
spirit that Andy Black and his compatriots have put into this album
glimmers throughout the recording. For the first time in many years, it
truly feels like it may be time to break out the guyliner and black
Why Do We Only Feel at Peace When Gwen Stefani Wears Red Lipstick?
Gwen Stefani arrived at the Billboard Music Awards last night with a new face. Her makeup artist tried to explain it, but it did not quell the inner panic bubbling up with each glance at this strange visage. If you’re a celebrity who is committed to One Look, a departure from that One Look is anxiety-inducing for the millions watching from afar. We now know for certain that it’s deeply upsetting to see Gwen with anything other than winged eyeliner and red lipstick.
Thankfully, Helen Rosner — concerned citizen, humanitarian, and Eater executive editor — has righted the wrong that neutral-toned lip gloss hath wrought. She put Gwen’s face back together again with a little Photoshop and a lot of love, so we may all be at peace once again:
