Did anyone ever do like actual research to confirm she's *really* a cancer and not gemini? Cause I remember her contradicting herself throughout the career and although her latest claim was that she's a cancer I just don't believe her :rip:

 

After analyzing her birth chart she is definitely a Cancer. There is no way she's a Gemini. Literally everything makes sense. The mystery, the deepness, the emotiveness, the sensuality, the pain, the trauma, the love for colors, textures and sounds, her closeness to the ocean, the elusiveness, the constant emotional need to escape... it's all there!! she has such a magnetic birth chart therefore personality. She's exactly like my ex goddamn.

 

Taurus Venus and Sun in the 8th House are the most LDR things ever.

I was on a road trip last weekend. I was driving during the transition from evening to dusk to night. I was on country roads and a storm was looming in the near distance with heavy storm clouds and lightning flashing. The contrast of dark gray stormy skies and golden plains paired with barns and old houses in the distance was stunning. At the same time, I was listening to NFR, and let me tell you, it was one of the most gorgeous experiences.

We were talking about her identity and how being on the cultural industry surely is a huge challenge when it comes to keep a solid vision on one's own creation. Lana herself said to maybe be "burned out after all" on The Greatest, where she discusses herself this topic. The intention was to bring the matter to discussion, cause it's a very interesting one, not to made ethical judgments about Lana or her output. Even if I found this last album less interesting than her previous ones for most of it, I wouldn't say it's worse, cause there's no way to objetctively approach to it, just giving my views on it. 

The "I'm burnt out after all" thing is not true though. it might have been true 15 months ago when she wrote those lyrics, but she wouldn't already be teasing white hot forever and the music for the alice in wonderland modern remake if she was actually in a creative slump. She also wouldn't have "painted" idea for the love song music video because she would exhausted creatively. The truth is she is very much into the whole creative process still.

Can't believe we are getting the Live Lounge session with a new cover tomorrow!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Why do I feel like she covered break up with your girlfriend, i'm bored or some shit lol

 

Predictions anyone? I think she will do Mariners Apartment Complex, The Greatest and Norman Fucking Rockwel

Season of the Witch, maybe? There is a non-NFR track in her setlist (though it could be Doin Time, since everybody was sure she wasn’t going to include it on the album)

As you say, that lyric represented the mindset she had when writing the song, and I think it kind of spread all along the album. The kind of tired vibe is there. And fully agree with you that she isn't over, sure she'll come with amazing things under her arm soon.

Well well. I know what I'll be up to now the next time it storms around here.  :usrs:

Driving home from work and exited the car just as HTD was starting. Damn if I didnt walk in and play it through. Bells still throw me, but I imagine her own reaction to hearing them and smiling so they can stay. HTD, the underdog of the whole album

 

Also props to the queen of stable sales and great numbers.

Am I the only one who afraid of listening to Hope? I'm avoiding it, it's beautiful but too dark and reminds me of so many shit, like my depression days..etc

Yup yup yup. The album ends with HiaB many times for me. Hope is that gut punch, and the trio of Bartender to HiaB to Hope is really rough, an extremely sad slide inward. Still love it, its just... alot
