outback witch house s01e12: on days like this, at times like these

Tonight was all over the place, but you loved it.

I did not know that “apricity” is the warmness of sun in winter, but I am very glad to know it. I felt like today had those vibes.

Given the kind of week(s) it’s been, I feel like I should have more to say, but I’ve said it elsewhere, and right now I’m just getting down with this stroopwafel, if we’re being fully honest.

Outback Witch House S01E09: I’m a goth in the sun

Hi. I pulled inspiration from all over the place this week, and I think the central pillars of whatever came together here were driven by the luscious novel I just finished, Plain Bad Heroines by Emily M. Danforth. I’m way too tired to do it justice in any kind of review right now, but it’s definitely worth picking up if you haven’t yet.

It’s slowly but surely beginning to feel a little less hopeless ’round these parts, what with the weather changing, the days growing, and the vaccines beginning to be obtainable by… literally anyone I know. But some of us have been burned a bit too often to lean into whatever optimism the usual spring un-doldrums might produce, so we might find ourselves feeling like the songs on this playlist. Idk. That is at least how I feel, at the precipice of something maybe good but also maybe another trip and fall down the metaphoric mountain.

Molly Nilsson sings this in the song that gave us our episode title of the evening: “And you can sleep through the summer days /
I know you think I’m morbid when I say / I hope you die by my side / The two of us at the exact same time.” I’m thinking about the knowledge that comes in the warmth of those summer days – you have them and you love them and your appreciation makes them end faster than any much shorter day in the winter. The law of paradoxical intent. It’s not that dark, it’s just an observation. This show is an observation of how it feels. Not just this week, but pretty much all weeks, I think.

That’s what we’re going for, at least.
