And then somehow we were thinking about, like, what would be a LOWER tech cottagecore and it's obviously "meadowcore". Now you've moved entirely outside and are just living in a meadow. It's like trying to make extreme paleo stuff seem cute and quaint.

My coworker and I were testing this by inventing new -wave and -core words. And, like, "naturewave" is clearly very chill electronic music that heavily samples waves and wind-through-trees and frog song and shit.

And, like, -wave also means something. Like, a new musical genre with -wave is some kind of electronic thing to me. Which is weird because AFAIK the original -wave genre was New Wave, which isn't particularly beep-boopy.

Show thread

This morning I have become obsessed with the semantics of the -wave and -core suffixes for, like, genres of music or ✨aesthetics✨ or whatever.

Like... -core implies some level of badassness to me (borrowed from "hardcore", I guess, where "hard" is doing all of that semantic work), which makes "cottagecore" a pleasantly amusing word.

As of today, I have been a father for a _decade_, which us fuckin’ wild.

Anyway, the 9yo is now the 10yo.

I finished reading a book with the 6yo and asked, “OK. You ready to go to bed?”

They just looked at me for a second and then farted SO LOUDLY. 🤦🏻‍♂️

It was hilarious, though.
