Instagram, week 23, 2015: in which I attended some really good (Ex Hex, Dan Deacon, Underworld) or really bad-in-a-funny-way (I'm looking at you, Foxygen) concerts at Primavera Sound Porto. I was swamped in work so I only managed to attend one of the days, sadly missing out on Mac de Marco and Ariel Pink. Oh, well...

May 21st

It has been that kind of month in which blogging has dropped very low in my priorities. I must admit, lower than catching up with the last episodes of Mad Men, a TV series that I’ve always regarded as part serious Art for its awesome literary scope and its preocupation with how people are really like, part guilty pleasure for its soap opera-like dramatic twists and turns (isn’t Ken Cosgrove’s eyepatch a self-deprecating joke about that?). I’m sad to have watched the end of Don, Peggy, Joan, Roger, even Pete!, as characters that I’ve known for the past eight years, and that’s a testament to Matthew Weiner’s genius as a writer and showrunner.

Still, we’ll always have the memes. Such as Mad Men Integrated.
