Every Noise at Once

“Every Noise at Once is an ongoing attempt at analgorithmically-generated, readability-adjusted scatter-plot of the
musical genre-space, based on data tracked and analyzed for 3,356
genre-shaped distinctions by Spotify as of 2019-08-27 [or recent dote when you might be reading this description].
The calibration is fuzzy, but in general down is more organic, up is more mechanical and electric; left is denser and more atmospheric, right is spikier and bouncier.”


Dear Nick Jonas, Here’s Your Beginner’s Guide to Bollywood

“Never forget that ‘Bollywood’ is not an all-inclusive term for any Indian film. You don’t call every sandwich a burger, now do you? Bollywood refers to the Hindi-language film industry. Tamil, Telugu, Malayalam, Kannada, Tulu (to name a few) are all Indian languages with entirely different film industries (and I highly recommend that you check them out).”

And that, my friends, is how Brown Girl Magazine made it into my RSS feed. Is this where I plug Tollywood and suggest the Satyajit Ray’s Apu Trilogy? Those aren’t tears. It’s just the kajal.
