I was going through Lil Peep’s videos, and it seems like he (they?) wanted to show that this smartphone addictiveness thing is like this honest way to represent reality. I see it as part of the story: accept that you’re not perfect, don’t hide, don’t lie to yourself, stop trying to be the best version of yourself, and it’s not going to be better any way.
We had emo in the early 2000s, and the message was similar, except it was mostly about crying in your bathroom rather than onboarding heavy substances.
Lil Peep’s music is very cool. It’s sad that he went away.
I’m thinking of going to see Norma Jean in two weeks, anyone wants to join?
