    I've had a feeling all along that Lana's whole career has just been a project to allow Rob to become a star.

    i just have to laugh at Lana being held up as the poster child of anti-feminism as a 37 year old woman with no kids or husband, who is famous & makes herself million of dollars. like nauuuuur be fucking for real for 3 seconds & direct that energy towards the "andrew tate is right actually" tiktok b*tches

    Even with the change in date of the album release, I feel like this is the smoothest era so far in recent history. I think we quickly forget how uniquely awful the waiting period for NFR! was (I wasn't on LB at the time, but I remember waiting in annoyance through most of late 2018 to mid 2019), the disaster that was the COTCC announcement (+ the White Hot Forever announcement) and the radio silence making us think the whole album had been scrapped post-QFTC, and the total ambiguity of the Rock Candy Sweet -> Blue Banisters release dates. 
     
    We really lucked out with Did You Know.

    Yeah, I was like, why do they still bring this up? Is this topic always going to be stuck in peoples’ heads? Positive or negative. Do we know a male singer, who’ve been categorized like that? 
    This tired me up, I guess

    to be honest I can hardly blame Lana for never wanting to straight up adopt the 'feminist' label  (despite clearly caring deeply for women & being aware of n regularly pondering on the patriarchy) after one of her first experiences with a self-proclaimed feminist was them throwing a book at her unprovoked lolol... that's one way to shoot yourself along w your cause right in the foot.
     
    radical types like that will always drive others away & make it hard for people to want to associate with the "movement"/group or whatever you wanna call it

    Lana’s feminism manifests itself in atypical ways. In her work you have to read between the lines. I’m what you would consider a “typical feminist” but Lana definitely is. A feminist is literally just a person who supports women getting the same rights as men. Speaking up about domestic abuse (Ultraviolence) is a bold choice and many could argue it’s romanticized but I doubt that was Lana’s intention. She makes music for her and gives no fucks about how others perceive it. A woman not seeking validation from the media and doing whatever she wants is feminism if you ask me. It’s just not “typical” feminism.

    Idk if this was mentioned already but I had a brain blast and I wonder if Lana did this intentionally:
    We all know part 2 of A&W is very much giving Lizzy Grant/BTD energy, and when the song starts to transition, all the vocals sound reversed and there’s also some effects that sound like it’s a VHS tape rewinding or something so it’s like she’s literally time traveling back to her old style. And that also makes me wonder if the narrative of this story is actually taking place in present-day Lana’s life or if she’s just reflecting on her Lizzy Grant days
     
    or maybe I’m just dumb LOL

    he posted her in 2021, but in Lanas recent interview, I think I remember her saying that Rob, Chuck, and Charlie live together so thats confounding if they're still married.

    Ok, writing is not my forte but I'll bite. English is my second language so I'll probably make some grammar mistakes but here we go:
     
    So, my favorite thing about the way Lana writes is that a particular song can have several meanings and interpretations, with several layers to be uncovered. 
    Arcadia in particular is a loaded word - at first glance, it's a city in LA county and Lana reinforces that by comparing her body to a map of LA.
     
    But since I'm not from the USA, the first thing that popped in my head when I read the title Arcadia was Arcadism. The name derives from the greek utopian myth of Arcadia, an idyllic place which was a safe haven for poets and artists in general. It is one of the most popular literary schools in romance languages, specially in lusophone countries such as Portugal and Brazil. Arcadism was a reaction to the previous literary school, which was Baroque, known for its grandeur and excesses. As Lana fans we may be familiarized with Baroque Pop which was one of the genres of her albums Born to Die, Paradise and Honeymoon. Lana started with a "new sound" and a "new way of writing" after Lust for Life, so I believe that naming a song Arcadia is her way of saying that she is really distancing herself from exaggerations in her music and in writing. Thus, she is becoming more and more personal, real and brutally honest with each album. 
     
    One of the main characteristics of Arcadism is more simple language and exaltation of country life/a simple life in detriment of urban life/materialism.
    Arcadians cut useless aspects of life and seek simple things, rich in spiritual meaning. I find that to be true for most of Blue Banisters' songs - many allusions to nature, Lana wishing for simplicity and making more mundane observations, simple songs that read almost as lullabies (specially Cherry Blossom and Sweet Carolina). This was her Arcadian moment.
     
    This is the meaning that Arcadia always held to me personally. But a few days ago, I came across a painting called "Et in Arcadia Ego", which can be translated to "Death too is in Arcadia".
     

     
    Again, many possible interpretations, one of them being a mement mori: death will come for everyone even if they live in a perfect place such as Arcadia. There is a play inspired but this painting - Arcadia by Tom Stoppard. One of the most proeminent themes of the play is time as a steady march to death. This made my reflect on the line:
     
    "In Arcadia, Arcadia
    All roads that lead to you are as integral to me
    As arteries that pump the blood that flows straight to heart of me"
     
    And I interpret that in 2 ways: firstly, it's Lana saying that being a poet is as integral to her as her own heart. Secondly, that all roads in life lead to inevitable death, so living is essentially walking towards death. The way she uses the heart/blood metaphor which is the essence of being alive is so beautiful. So in my own personal headcannon, Arcadia is like a sequel to Born to Die (the song), even though Lana said "listen to it how you listened to Video Games", I personally listen to it like I listened to BTD.
     
    I needed to write at least a thinkpiece about this song because I've loved it since it came out. Imo it's one of her most well written songs and nothing will ever change my mind about that.
