Is Fever Ray post rock?
Nah. Post-rock is long, usually instrumental songs with lots of layered guitar, big ambient parts, then hueueuege crescendos and big dynamics between loud and soft. Godspeed You! Black Emperor, Slint, Explosions in the Sky, Mogwai, Tortoise, Sigur Ros. In all honesty I don't see it as a very Evil-friendly genre, but I've been wrong before.

Yeah though not all of their stuff, another good shout. A few of my favourites besides those Rkod mentioned are Talk Talk's last two albums, Hex by Bark Psychosis, Silver Mt. Zion, and Beat by Bowery Electric.

I miss Ringo. I doubt she remembers I exist.

Ready or Not is often too clever for it's own good. I liked it a lot and saw it in theaters. I miss movie theaters.

You're Next is great. I saw that on Halloween back in 2014 after viewing Event Horizon. Drank most of a 12 pack of PBR and passed out watching Barton Fink at 3 in the morning. Good times.

Hey Sips, I'm doing as best as can be expected, given the circumstances; I'm trying to get used to wearing a mask all the time at work (which is in retail, unfortunately), trying to get used to not visiting my family more than once a month, etc. It's a lot to get used to, but I'm doing okay, considering. I'm spending almost all of my days off work at home alone, but at least I have my dogs around to keep me company, so I'm grateful to have them around. Anyway, I'm really really glad to see you back here; how are you doing?

That’s great! Maybe Evil isn’t such a bad life coach after all.

It should be noted that I am available for any life coaching one may need as well. Can’t say if I’m any good at it but I am available.

I’ve been sanding our back deck so that we can restain it to something other than the weird orangish color it is now, but it is slow going because it WON’T STOP FUCKING RAINING!!!
