The Strokes have given the NME an exclusive track-by-track guide to their third album ‘First Impressions of Earth’.

“It’s a little different,” warns guitarist Nick Valensi. “But I think people will still be able to tell it’s The Strokes – they just sound a little bit more mature.”

‘You Only Live Once‘ - Foot-stamping opener

Fab: “I remember Julian playing this on the pianoo and me thinking that it was fucking awesome! I felt like I knew this song already.”

‘Juicebox‘ – Ballsy, gonzo-rock-sized first single

Albert: “We heard the riff and it was like, ‘Dude, that’s it, let’s get in the studio!”
Julian: “No, when I first played that riff a lot of people thought I was joking.
Was it influenced by a cop show’s theme?
Julian: “No”
(Rest of band start singing cop tune themes.)  

‘Heart In A Cage‘ – A younger, edgy cousin of Iggy Pop’s ‘The Passenger’

Fab: “This song was going to be on the last record – ‘Private Dick’, it was once called – but it was too late. It was a blessing in disguise, really, because had it been recorded back then, I don’t think it would have worked out as well.”

‘Razorblade‘ - Sounds a bit like Barry Manilow’s ‘Mandy’ – remarkably, this is actually a good thing

Fab: “Razorblade was one of the first songs we sat down and played together. Oh, and it was the first trans-computer gigs we’ve ever done!”
Rest of band: “Er?”
Julian: “Trans-comp…? Oh, I emailed it to you…”

‘On The Other Side‘ - A slow, choppy ode to the spirit realm?

Fab: “I remember when Julian first played it for us he had a cold and he sounded like a fucking bullfrog. Like Johnny Cash one testosterone steroids!”

‘Vision of Division‘ – An angry sounding mix of throat-shredding vocals and bad-ass guitar lines

Fab: “I heard this over at Albert’s house and the guys played it for me and it was completely different.”
Julian: “No, that was ‘Ize of the World’. He’s getting it confused because sometimes our songs swap.”

‘Ask Me Anything‘ – The Strokes totally stripped, just synth-strings and Julian’s bare vocals

The lyrics are fairly morose. What kind of mood were you in when you wrote it, Julian?
Julian: “Suicidal! No, I’m usually in a fairly neutral mood when I’m writing. It just comes from other times and things sinking in, it’s very subconscious.
So who actually plays on the track then?
Fab: “Billy Joel. Yeah, we got him in to play the mellotron.” [It was actually Nick Valensi]

‘Electricityscape‘ - Big chorus, static-fried vocals and clipped guitars. A Strokes classic?

Albert: “I remember falling asleep when a few of you guys were working on this one.
Fab: “Ha! Yeah! Albert fell asleep face-down on his guitar!”

‘Killing Lies‘ - Rhythm-led pounder that oscillates between euphoria and introspection

Fab: ‘Killing Lies’ was first arranged and brought to life at the studio of the Dandy Warhols. They invited us to dinner, they’re great guys. Sorry, great guys and a girl.”

‘Fear of Sleep’ - Slow-building monster. Boasts some of Julian’s best lung-busting singing

Fab: “This was one of the most difficult songs on the record. To arrange, I mean. It just never seemed right at some points and then it did.”

‘15 Minutes’ – A badly behaved drinking anthem. Surprisingly reminiscent of Shane Macgowan

Nick: “We had two different ways to play it. A very Pogues-y version, and a punk-rock version. Then they became one and the same.”

‘Ize of the World‘ – A hip-swinging little tune which sees The Strokes take aim at modern alienation

What are the Ize Of The World?
Albert: “Isn’t it what every word ends with? Modernize, computerize…(Julian shakes head) Or am I wrong? I’m wrong.”
Julian: “Once you hear the lyrics to the song, it’s pretty clear what it means.”

‘Evening Sun‘ - Stoic yet determined, possibly the most ‘classic Strokes’ sounding song here

Fab: “Julian first did this and we found it on Gordon [Raphael, producer]‘s computer. We went up to Julian and said, ‘Why didn’t you play us this song?’. It’s become one of my favourites. Oh, and he and I both played the drums.”
Julian: “Oh, please don’t print that.”
Fab: “Are you going to deny that? If you listen to the end you hear that there are two drummers.”

‘Red Light‘ – A sprightly and dexterous closer

Julian: “OK, I have a story about this one, but I’m not sure I should tell it.”
Fab: “Dude, it’s the last one. Tell it or I will hit you!”
Julian: “All over my body? OK…somebody got me tickets for Mozart’s ‘Requiem’, I was just really stoned, so afterwards I thought it would be cool to write something inspired by opera. I went back, got this really strong melody together and there it was….’Red Light’!”
(The band applaud the story.)

hunterinabrowncoat:

In aid of Asexual Awareness Week, I’ve decided to make a post about autochorissexuality and just what it is.

The term ‘autochoris’ was coined by Anthony Bogaert, and essentially translates to ‘identity-less sexuality’. It is a sub-section of asexuality, which he describes as:

A disconnection between oneself and the object of arousal; may involve sexual fantasies or arousal in response to erotica or pornography, but lacking any desire to be a participant in the activities therein.

Essentially, we like the idea of sex, and/or enjoy reading/writing/watching sexual content, but don’t actually experience attraction or want to have sex with anybody.

You might be autochorissexual if:

  • You get aroused by sexual content but don’t actually want to engage in any sexual activities yourself.
  • You masturbate, but are neutral or repulsed by the idea of having sex with another person.
  • When you fantasize about sex, you envision people other than yourself, and/or you view it in third person, as though you’re watching it on TV, rather than imagining it in first person, through your own eyes.
  • You predominantly or entirely fantasize about fictional characters or celebrities, rather than people you actually know.
  • You identify as asexual and feel no sexual attraction to people, but enjoy masturbating, are aroused by sexually explicit content, and/or have sexual fantasies.

This isn’t an exhaustive checklist, and ultimately nobody can give you a label but yourself. But hopefully this post has brought you a little closer to understanding autochorissexuality, whether you are asexual, grey/demi, questioning, confused, or just wanting to raise awareness.

Here are some further resources if you want to learn more:

An essay on autochorissexualism vs lithsexualitythe flag (as depicted above, but without the text caption), Anthony Bogaert’s short paper on Autochorissexualism, and my inbox is always open if you have any questions.

If you’ve found this post informative, please signal boost to help raise awareness and understanding about all the different aspects and subsections of asexuality!

The symptoms of autochorissexuality mentioned above sounds just like me (except for the last one because I don't identify as asexual because maybe I'm not sure yet). It's true that I tend to view myself as a watcher/observer and uninvolved whenever I picture sex scenes. I can't imagine myself having sex, but I do get aroused whenever I see some sex scenes.

I think I just found my description.

i-mahu:

There’s two types of anger one is dry and the other wet and basically wet anger is when your eyes water and your voice shakes and I hate that cause I feel weak when I’m crying while angry I like dry anger when your face is like stone and your voice is sharp

I guess wet anger shows that you care too much and dry anger means you’re done.

This is the best description ever

Seriously though your period is like coming home one day and finding that your spouse has constructed this entire new baby bedroom inside your house and you have to tell them “Sweetie we don’t have a baby” and then your spouse FLIPS THE FUCK OUT like “The FUCK do you mean we don’t have a baby I DID ALL THIS WORK” and then they spend the next week tearing the whole room apart and throwing it out into the street and screaming at you and then finally when the room is completely gutted they calm down and say “It’s okay hon we’ll have a baby next month” and then they start building the room again AND THIS SHIT KEEPS GOING FOR THE REST OF YOUR LIFE UNTIL YOU HIT LIKE 50 AND THEN YOUR SPOUSE LEAVES YOU BUT NOT BEFORE SETTING THE WHOLE HOUSE ON FIRE SO IT’S NEVER THE SAME AGAIN

actual best description of a period in the entire world

eating is so badass i mean you put something in a cavity where you smash and destroy it with 32 protruding bones and then a meat tentacle pushes it into a pool of acid and after a few hours later you absorb its essence and transform it in energy just wow

That is the most metal thing I have ever read in my whole life.
