if you were on Earth would you miss nothingness?
I can’t decide whether the way people move around and drag their luggage behind them at the busy train stations I frequent these days is evidence for or against us living inside a computer simulation.
Against: it is something far too complex for any system to model accurately.
For: someone tried to model it and fucked up so everyone walks about like dicks with no awareness.
This album, which is most likely to be my answer to the difficult “favourite album” question, is ten years old today. Whilst I never need an excuse to listen to it and it was a couple of months after release that I first heard it, a crisp autumnal morning or clear skied and cosy winter night is the perfect backdrop for it. I’ll always remember that first time I heard it, and the first time I saw them live playing most of it not too long after. Explosions In The Sky - The Earth Is Not A Cold Dead Place.
