P boring list…
Brando rules but he’s one of these inexplicable weirdo actors that everybody said was good and he became a legend when he’s really just a lot of nonsense tics and mugging and if you like watch any of his classic movies you’re like, “How did this guy become like thee actor,” you know? Like Stallone is just as mumbly and weird and awesomely half-assed. Character actors that are hawt enough that they ruled Hollywood for a time. Just total weirdos who are usually off doing his own thing in most movies. Favorite Brando performances:
Also shout out to Guys and Dolls and The Brave.
Hmm, this is a harder question for me to answer than it should be? I feel like there’s a lot of complex emotions that go with owning and caring about a dog and they’re always shifting between like the love and joy and singular kind of friendship you get out of it and these pragmatic parent-like things or worry and concern, etc. and it makes song-association kinda tough. Last year, I did make this DOG MIX, which tried to capture those multiple, conflicting feelings, though.
One that for whatever reason I’ve always associated with my dog is “Surfin’ with the Shah” by the Urinals. There’s something about its like rickety rhythms that make me think of my dog running (he has a weird awkward gate). That song starts that mix. More recently, I associate “Wedding Budz,” the instrumental version of Kurt Vile’s “Air Bud” with my dog.
GRATUITOUS PICTURE OF MY DOG:
Mulder obvs because I am creepy moody singleminded weirdo who can occasionally appear to be handsome or at least “interesting-looking.”
Not sure what Young Thug is into but hopefully he likes: 30 Rock, Tim & Eric, and The Eric Andre Show, and X-Files, Degrassi: The Next Generation, and Downton Abbey. Can I also bring a reality show? Keeping Up with The Kardashians, maybe??
