Color me in the Lizzo camp too.  I heard her on Fresh Air and was quite impressed.  Hey Schlipp I discovered King Gizzard a couple months ago too.  Just saw Surplus 1980 open up for Victim's Family and was blown away by their set clack

Now that I'm a frequent flier at the podiatrist's, I have no need for these products.  I have the orthotics and I've been instructed to buy new shoes every time they start to wear so I don't fuck up my ankles again and again.

Actually, that sounds kind of helpful.  :hmm:



UPDATE:  The Goop on my boots is . . . mostly dry.  Still sticky, and it's been about eight freaking days.  Also, it shrank slightly, which I've not seen from Goop before.

SO my judgment here is:  Don't use acetone to thin Goop, or at least don't use nail polish remover.  :shrug:

I think it'll dry enough so I can recoat or try coating over the Goop with something else.  I didn't make the boots worse (they were pretty beat-up already), so it's a no-harm, no-foul situation.  If I had more time, I'd do a more proper experimentation, but I'm gonna go look for YouTube videos of other people experimenting with the stuff instead.

The fact that not only I, but my wife as well, resemble the characters in the Basic Instructions webcomic has led to several of our friends having a hard time not believing that comic isn't about us.

It doesn't help that I sometimes have very similar conversations with my wife as show up in those comics.

I took a DNA test, and turns out I'm 100% pro-Lizzo.

Also she's Minneapolis-based, which makes her pertty damn near perfect.

I have tried Sugru, but not for shoe repair.  :hmm:

:confused:

Who?


edit:  OK, I went to Wikipedia instead of just being a baby about it.  Explained slightly.  Anytime I haven't heard a pop star (or whatever), I end up judging them by fans or media coverage, which I suppose is pretty normal.  I don't know a thing about Lizzo beyond skimming the Wikipedia, but I'll YouTube something later.

My feeling is, the artist is dead, the critic is dead, the fanbase is dead.  Like whatever you like.  The point of art is the effect it has on the audience, and the audience is you.  It's fine to criticize art, and it's fine to criticize fandom, but there's no point in criticizing personal taste.
