    My thing was/is nothing.  I can't grasp, then when I die, just black, nothing mattered.

    It’s actually quite liberating.  Now is your time to truly live your one life.  No need to live in constant fear of a judgmental creep that’s always watching you to determine your relative worth.  Does life really matter if there is a promise of a magical afterlife dancing amongst the clouds?  Or does the acknowledgment of the lack of an afterlife make life matter even more?

    So, I try not to be prone to conspiracy theories, but some media organizations forced some documents to be released from the case today and I'm sort of on board with the idea that there might still be a shooter on the loose. 

    Here's a pretty decent CNN article about the documents that were released

    In summary, Paddock was using two email accounts associated with the apartment complex he owned to communicate with each other. He is believed to have owned both accounts, but the communication between them makes more sense if one account was shared by potential customers.

    Account 1 (centralpark1) emailed Account 2 (centralpark4804) the following: "Try an ar before u buy. We have huge selection. Located in the las vegas area"

    Account 2 responded: "We have a wide variety of optics and ammunition to try"

    Account 1 responded: "For a thrill try out bumpfire ar's with 100 round magazine"

    It seems plausible to me that someone set up a deal with Paddock at the hotel, killed Paddock, used the guns and then managed to escape. That theory begs the question of what the security guard who was shot saw, as presumably no one could have escaped that room without him having seen them go. Did he ever end up giving a public account of what happened? I know it was scheduled to happen and then he kind of disappeared, but that was months ago and I never paid attention to any follow up.

    All of those emails sound like exactly what someone selling an automatic gun to someone else would say.  Not sure what about those emails supports any of the other crazy conspiracy theories you propose.

    Do you think that on any scientific level, in another unknown dimension that there might be something else?

    If by “something else,” you mean some sort of all-knowing creator or a playground for souls of deceased humans from Earth, then no.

    But I’m sure there is plenty of “something else” that we don’t know about, whether in this dimension or another.

  7. Really enjoyed the song draft and listening to the collective FBG playlist so far.  Definitely discovering some great stuff that I missed this year thanks to you guys.  

    Anyone else get their Spotify Wrapped breakdown for 2017?  Here are my stats for the year.

    I probably listened to 65%rap, 25% indie rock, and 10% folk/bluegrass this year.

    Call Ticketron off of RTJ3 came out today or yesterday with a video. (I hardly think I'm spotlighting.) Probably my song of the year, even though it dropped Xmas last year. It's interesting, if you call the phone number the broadcasters show on the interview you get audio clips of them. I wonder if there's a game involved. Anyone privy?  

    Pretty sure it was just some hype material for the video. They released some clips with the phone number on Wednesday to tease the video release.

    Great song and video, BTW.  

  9. I’ve been debating between a bunch of different songs for my last pick, but I’m going to go back to my Album of the Year because it’s been the soundtrack to my 2017 with its very pertinent themes of resisting fascism, racism, police brutality, and class warfare.  Not to mention that the video is pretty dope too.  

    Round 15:  Run the Jewels - Don’t Get Captured

    Good day from the house of the haunted
    Get a job, get a house, get a coffin
    Don't stray from the path, remain where you at
    That maximizes our profit
    Is that blunt? Oh well, hell, so's this boot
    We live to hear you say "please don't shoot"
    A pure delight, c'mon, make my night

    Was really hoping somebody would take something off this. My first listen, it just didn't turn my crank, but it's really grown on me.

    Yeah, I kind of felt the same.  Felt like something deserved to be taken from the album.  Some of the songs are a little too slow for my tastes, but they jam out on “Fear Is Like a Forest.”

    Super-quick make-up playlist. Reasonably sure I got no repeats. Would've taken several of the ones already picked. Guy I know said that 2017 was the year Portugal, The Man and Grizzly Bear stopped being brutally boring, and I agree to some extent. :lmao: "Mourning Sound" and "Feel It Still" are both fantastic.

    Still pretty happy with these leftovers. Several had to grow on me, but then got stuck in my head all day long.

    1. Imaginary Tricks, Bird
    2. Jens Lekman, Evening Prayer
    3. The Shins, Mildenhall
    4. LAKE, Work With What You Got
    5. Tennis, My Emotions Are Blinding
    6. Day Wave, Untitled
    7. Richard Edwards, Rollin' Rollin' Rollin'
    8. Simian Ghost, Stop Moving
    9. Real Estate, Darling
    10. American Lips, Definition
    (couldn't find it on YouTube)
    11. Nilüfer Yanya, Sliding Doors
    12. Parcels, Overnight
    13. Bad Fit, Worry Doll 
    14. Sufjan Stevens, Bryce Dressner, Nico Muhly & James McAlister, Mercury
    15. Dent May, Picture on a Screen

    Well, Abrantes wins the Most Obscure Award with Bad Fit’s “Worry Doll,” which has less than 1,000 listens on Spotify six months after its release.

    (You realize you don't have to pay 9.99 to use Spotify, right? And my pixel doesn't have to get hijacked by YouTube :shrug: )

    Oh, I didn’t realize that non-premium Spotify users could still listen to songs via links.  That’s good to know.

    I was just annoyed at fake song videos that I keep coming across for artists that try to keep their music off of YouTube.  There’s a whole underground industry of people that make money tricking other people into opening fake YouTube content.
