“But I think this way is the way out,” she said, trying not to make me feel too nervous, but I knew it wasn’t the way out—it was just the beginning, just the start of something we had begun—and even if I told her that it wasn’t the way out, it really wouldn’t matter because we both knew in our minds that it could only get worse, and we were just trying to see how far we could take each other now…

“Just because you have a blog doesn’t mean you should, like, lie for no reason…” - Sky Ferreira
There’s not a lot of spark in modern music anymore, at least in pop music. Most of it is recycled cookie-cutter rhythms that’s bounced off each other and reproduced as “unique.” In some instances, you hear the sound you’ve been almost waiting for. Sky Ferreira is, to me, that sound. I can’t say I’ve felt this compelled for a new artist since Frank Ocean or maybe Adele. And I’m not saying Sky is better or worse than these artists, I’m just saying she’s a force to be reckoned with, creatively.
“Leave your worries for a while, they will still be there when you get back…”

Immediately after I heard the news about the death of Philip Seymour Hoffman, I had such a deep sadness in my heart. It was as if some gem of the world had been stolen too soon. That’s exactly what it was—a stolen gem being taken from our world. Hoffman was not just an actor in Hollywood, who did movies that gave you a 90-minute distraction and then that was it. He was a skilled actor, capable of talent that reached levels of Daniel Day-Lewis or Robert De Niro. It was almost a shock at how far he’d come in ten to fifteen years. He was unarguably one of the finest actors of the 21st Century and the timeless roles he portrayed are forever in our memories and here for all to see for years to come.
