PHY100 is finally over.

No uncertainty there, Heisenberg.


Check out “Intentions” — the brand new track from Stagnant Pools!

When the song debuted last week, Consequence of Sound used choice words such as “fuzz,” “louder,” “droning,” “brooding,” and “aural chaos,” to describe it. 

When you listened to it, you called it “__________.”

The song comes from the band’s sophomore full-length, Geist, which is up for pre-order now on clear vinyl, CD, and blue tint tape.


Fun Fact: Geist was recorded and mixed directly to tape right here in Champaign with Hum’s Matt Talbott. And then we all got sushi afterwards. (Actually, full disclosure, I had noodles. Double disclosure, Matt wasn’t there. Sorry Matt.)]

20% more emo than yesterday. kinda sick, stuck in bed.

"chunking express" (1994)
“The parturition of a writer, I think, unlike that of a painter, does not display any interesting alliances to his masters…A writer can be seen clumsily learning to walk, to tie his necktie, to make love, and to eat his peas off a fork. He appears much alone and determined to instruct himself. Naïve, provincial in my case, sometimes drunk, sometimes obtuse, almost always clumsy, even a selected display of one’s early work will be a naked history of one’s struggle to receive an education in economics and love.”
— John Cheever, Preface to his Collected Stories
