  1. I really like 8 songs from the new album and I think 7 more are fine -- those 7 aren't songs I'll add to my general playlist and listen to all the time, but I wouldn't skip them if they came up in a random playlist. I detest London Boy and think all the criticism online is spot on (see this and this). I'm sick of Me!, and I Think He Knows is forgettable. But really liking 8/18 (and liking 15/18 well enough) is not bad. I think she did a great job with bridges on this album. Daylight's bridge is gorgeous, and Cruel Summer's bridge gets stuck in my head. Miss Americana's bridge is clever, with the lyrics built around cheerleaders doing the "Go Fight Win" cheer. I also like the parallel pre-choruses in False God ("I'm New York City"/"You're the West Village"), and the religion metaphor there is well done. I think it's a pretty strong album lyrically, aside from the first two singles (and London Boy, bleh).
  2. Album is out. I've listened a couple of times, and the songs I like a lot are: Cruel Summer, Miss Americana and the Heartbreak Prince (can't say I immediately understand the allegory, but the cheerleaders are used really well in the bridge), Paper Rings (probably the catchiest song on the album), Cornelia Street, Death by a Thousand Cuts, False God, and Afterglow. Soon You'll Get Better is good but hard to listen to because it's so sad ("Desperate people find faith, so now I pray to Jesus too", "I know delusion when I see it in the mirror", "What am I supposed to do/If there's no you?" -- it sounds like her mother's prognosis is not good).

    The Lion King (2019)

    Oh, watch the original at some point! It's beautiful and is one of the best movies Disney has ever done.

    Little Women (2019)

    I think it looks good! The colors are more muted but it looks pretty. Still not sold on Emma Watson (and wondering if she was barely in the trailer for a reason), but Ronan looks like she'll be a good Jo.

    The Eyes: News and Media

    Removed a bunch of posts that were just arguing about the language people were using in their posts. If you think someone is being unnecessarily rude, report, don't engage. Keep in mind that mods will not warn people for every perceived slight. Sometimes a post is mildly rude but does not break our rules, in which case: If you consistently have issues with someone, learn to love the Ignore feature.

    Agent Carter

    The best news I've heard in a while: Hayley Atwell will be reprising her role of Peggy Carter for the seventh and final season of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.
  10. Only other collab on the album is a Dixie Chicks one on a song about Taylor's mom's cancer. I'm taking all the leaks with a grain of salt, but multiple people have confirmed that one, so it seems pretty solid. Also, rumor is the next single is Cruel Summer, which is apparently a fave of most people who have heard the album, and that comes out (complete with music vid) either this Friday or next. We're supposedly getting another promo song before release, too.

    Let's Talk Modern Consoles, PCs, And Handhelds

    I bought an Oculus Quest last month and I absolutely love it. I've pretty much only played Beat Saber so far, but it's super fun and also a good workout (comparable to singles tennis), so it's a win-win. This is the first game system I've bought since my SNES/N64 days. I'd been feeling old lately because it seemed like modern systems had controllers with way too many buttons and joysticks, so the simple, intuitive Quest controllers are really working for me. I'd been thinking VR was just an expensive gimmick, and had never planned to invest in a wired system plus sensor towers and all of that, but the Quest is so simple -- literally just take it anywhere, set a guardian area and start playing -- that I hope it sticks around and continues to get even better.
  12. The first Lover secret session happened today in London. The fans aren't allowed to share any lyrics or song names (or quote anything Taylor said about the songs) but they're giving general impressions. This person seems to have similar taste to me (1989 and Red are my favorite albums and I didn't care for most of reputation), so this sounds promising:

    S07.E11: God Bless America

    I can't believe this show has made me genuinely like Fig.
  14. Do not spoil anything from later episodes in an episode thread -- e.g., if you're in the episode 5 thread, do not spoil anything from episodes 6 and beyond. Character threads, the media thread, and other catch-all topics cover all released episodes, so talking about anything that happened during the show's run is fine in those. Please check out the General Site-Wide Spoiler Policy thread if you need further clarification.
