Paul LeCrone's Dumpster Fire May 16th 2021

I didn't send one last week shoot me

Hey it’s Paul. Welcome to

Hey it’s Paul. Welcome to

ok for some reason Substack isn’t letting me load the newsletter logo that says “Paul LeCrone’s Dumpster Fire.” This is a great sign that you should close this email right now and get on with your day.

Instead of a logo: here’s a picture of me doing karate when I was 10

Also I didn’t send one of these last week but I’m sure no one missed it. I was working on my video editing/video marketing course. Which, by the way, is out!

You can check it out here.

ok newsletter time now ENJOY


MUSIC

This song is amazing. The music video might even be better.

(Genre: Japanese, “chamber pop” [I don’t know what that is but that’s what Spotify tells me])

God that probably took so long to make. Look at all those LINES. Look at all that detail. Must have taken hours. Hours and hours and hours and it’s just so good.

here’s another one by the same guy that’s also really good I M O

(Also a great song for practicing your hiragana)

Book

I’ve started reading (the) Grapes of Wrath by John Steinbeck.

It’s about the great depression. And dust. A lot of dust. And corn.

I’m enjoying it. I really liked East of Eden so I’m hoping this one’s as good.

Once I’m done reading it I’ll probably get back into Dostoevsky and start reading The Idiot.

Movie

SOUND OF METAL

Got around to watching Sound of Metal last week. Holy moly. Christ Jesus this was such a good film. Everyone who worked on it deserves 12 Oscar’s.

It’s about a drummer who loses his hearing. In other words, a horror movie.

Its’ amazing. Go watch it right now.

Podcast

My girlfriend got me addicted to Red Scare podcast. It’s a cultural commentary podcast by “The Ladies” Dasha Nekrasova and Anna Khachiyan. [2]. The ladies say all the words you’re no longer allowed to say and have all the questions you’re no longer allowed to ask. A hilarious breath of fresh air. Great logo, too.

Good Fucking Food

These tempura bananas that, upon closer inspection, looks like turds.

People keep telling me to upgrade my phone. But I’m not going to because I love how shitty these photos look.

I ate 2 of these while My Girlfriend performed standup comedy. Over Zoom. At a sushi restaurant. Zoom standup comedy at a restaurant. Thanks, CDC!

I hope you enjoy the rest of your weekend.

Much love,

Paul.

BUT WAIT 1 more thing.
