alt-J — Every Other Freckle
Tonight, alt-J’s highly anticipated sophomore album, This Is All Yours, was released. With fourteen tracks, the English band carefully navigates a dirty tongue, beautiful indie and ethereal electronica.
A slow, folksy beginning tumbles into a drumming baseline but it’s Joe Newman’s lead vocals that orchestrate this song: a testament to her form, her taste, her rawness. His voice travels up and down her body, it’s in her hair in crooning promises, on the inside of her thighs in echoing harmonies and the twinges of electronica gives her goosebumps. It makes the song imperfectly sexy, as it follows her curves from indie anthem to marching band rock to pop-electronica.
It takes guts, talent and raw sex appeal to pull off a hot serenade like this one, such a combination might only come around once a year. 2013 was Beyoncé’s “I want you to turn that cherry out” and 2014 will be alt-J’s “turn you inside out and lick you like a crisp packet.”

YOU GO GLENN COCO
it should be only you and me and rome;
If someone says “I love u” and you say “I love u 2” back, make sure you add “no Bono” so they know you mean that you love them too, not just the legendary Irish rock band U2
i think the coolest thing would be to see a new color
right so theres this thing called the bullet shrimp and not only are these things totally badass and stylish
they have 16 colour cones in their vision
us humans only have 3
these things can literally see over 5 times as many colours as we can
literally they can look at what we would see as a completely black space and see thousands of colours we don’t even know exist
do you understand how fuCKING COOL THAT IS

Meet the Reykjavík Metropolitan Police, serving the capital of Iceland. By the looks of their incredible Instagram account, a normal day includes holding kittens, eating candy and wearing false mustaches.
For the record the Icelandic police are probably the best police force in the world, There has only been one instance where an officer shot and killed a civilian in the entire history of the country (which is nearly a hundred years) and everyone was completely devastated by it, the police especially — because, as made clear in their statements after the incident, they understand their function is to protect the people. Not to mention that their general police go unarmed except for special squads.
Let’s run through some more facts while we’re on the subject: Compared to 31,000+ shooting deaths in the US in 2009, Iceland had… 4, because they have very rigorous screening processes for gun permits. There is very little economic disparity between upper, middle and lower classes, and social welfare programs take care of their people. Drug use affects less than 1% of the population between 15 and 65 years old, and 90% of drug-related court cases are settled with a fine rather than jail time. Violent crime is virtually non-existent. [x]
Iceland is like if you took the entire idea of chill and personified it as an country, and this exemplifies that.
