i keep having text posts that get notes i need to go back to talking about things no one cares about to stay in my comfortable ~30 notes a post zone, so:

favorite chris ott-isms:
1. “i would stand tall in a coliseum battling lions if it meant i could erase the arcade fire”
2. “tons of people watched those towers burn, dude. some of them were listening to wham!”
3. his entire shit with sam ray which ended in him buying sam twitter followers and being accused of being a bad dad for spending money on fake followers instead of investing in his child’s future
4. “xiu xiu is gg allin for ceramics majors”
5. in general him stanning for the 1975 and despising anco/ dan deacon/ black dice/ anyone he deems “spazz music” is pretty funny

fav pitch era ott reviews:
1. the pavement reissue review
2. the vines - winning days (no one needs the vines. no one cries over vines songs.)
3. the best of mission of burma
4. young marble giants - colossal youth
5. the black tambourine one

fav of his shallow rewards videos: 
1. william basinski’s disintegration loops
2. from yonkers to highlife
3. the seminal shoegaze one
4. genrewave
5. this is boston not BK / things your mother should know
