while i’m telling you to follow people, i should also send you over to james brooks’ tumblr. i’m not really one for public displays of affection, but i owe a significant fraction of my brains’ development - and my mental health - to conversation with him over the past few years. he’s also one of the people (along with claire) who encouraged me to actually write on here. which it looks like i’m now doing.
james is one of those rare people with a singular and nearly fully fleshed out perspective on the world and music - and the slogan above neatly sums it up. one of the best favors you can do for yourself as an artist or a person interested in art is to read through his writing.
