Someone had to do it, so it might as well be me.

What does Dissensus think of Billie? I'm dying to know.

Personally, I hope she's a sign of a post-millennial paradigm shift in pop music from breezy sentimentality and pseudo-sincerity to perverse horror-psychedelia hypno-pop. I hope this sensibility dominates the 2020s. But I've said enough so l'll shut up for now.

(This will get zero replies won't it? Or a string of memes I don't get. That's alright Agent, stay strong. You have weathered far worse)

So is she the real deal (a transitional figure), a blip/anomaly, all hype and no substance, or what?

I was about to post a similar thread but then didn't. The newspaper had a review of her tour in Belgium, praising her refusal to subscribe to a single genre. I saw the same argument yesterday, in a record shop, used to praise a compilation ("no genre is the best genre"). Could it be that the cultural omnivorisation that has characterised music consumption, at least since a couple of decennia, now also starts to enter the production-side? Is the good artist an artist able to do all genres, in analogy to the good listener able to find value in all genres and registers?

would be wonderful if this marked the rise of the anti-algorithm, people tired of being force-fed the "if you like that then you might this" mindset from streaming platforms and YouTube (which, let's face it, are where the vast majority of people now listen to music).

wishful thinking, I know.

Grimes showed flashes of that and now she has a pet Space Fascist (PBUH) it's likely we'll hear more of her. Maybe they'll duet.

Ps Billie Eilish is over platform b radio down here

You know, I wasn't aware of this relationship so I did some searching and good lawd Elon needs to pick one: engaging with the media/public, or cannabis consumption. The combination just isn't working out for the man:

[The] class action investor lawsuit started with a single measly tweet, one that Musk tapped out while behind the wheel of his Model S, he later told The New York Times. “Am considering taking Tesla private at $420,” he wrote on August 7. “Funding secured.”

It turns out that last part was not true. Though Musk had conversations with Saudi investors about taking the company private, the funding had not been finalized.

Poor bastard can't make a joke on Twitter while engaged in a hot menage with two young pop stars without some goddamned soulless humorless trustees trying to shut him down. Corporate rule-by-committee logic will eventually drown out all human brilliance.

Couldn't agree more. But you'll find Dissensus is very much Musk-averse for daring to dream and then actually build his toys.
 
If I had to choose one person to repopulate Earth after, say, well-meaning aliens annihilate humanity, it would come down to her or Millie Bobby Brown. Kind of a toss up. Maybe I'd let them compete Bachelor-style.:cool:

Interesting that all her videos, album covers, etc. have the same aesthetic and force of impact but come from different directors/photographers, which means they are drawing on her energy, and she's drawing on some deep occult power. I can sense it. The "Bury a Friend" video.... I suspect it was directed by a time-travelling clone of David Lynch from the future.

This sort of nonsense is just pathetic:
No, you sir are the plant. Just a fucking plant. Like a houseplant, or a vegetable.
 
Exactly. That means 30 or so years of fertility/babies. We wouldn't get started right away or anything. She would have to get used to me seeing as I look and kind of seem like a ghoul.

Sorry to offend. I know everyone loves her. But remember, behind every sweet face is a bad bitch.

Also, it is worth noting that the legal age of consent is 15 years old in the following countries: Sweden, France, Poland, Denmark, Romania, Greece, and Slovenia.

and you can (not saying you should) legally get it on with a 14 year old in: Germany, Italy, Brazil, Peru, etc.
