INTRODUCTION

Hello there! I am M.A. Mercier(as far as you know), and I am here to read and write about anything that stimulates my mind. I am only 16, so don’t judge my writing, or opinions, and don’t be shy to let your opinions be known either.

As you might have gathered by my age, I am officially a student. I am applying to universities for admission in the English Literature course…


I’m not crying, you are crying

INTRODUCTION

I love a variety of art forms, and one of the reasons is that it makes me feel something. In one of earliest articles on Medium, I said that I think the best art is the one that brings out highest amount of emotion. I stand by that. That does not, however, mean that a book or an album should bring you to tears to be considered a high piece of art. That would not be correct! …


Strangers help if you know where to look

There are songs that Justin Beiber puts out, and there are also songs that deeper than words or instrumentals. They need contextualization, knowledge about the topic, and a certain amount of wisdom to interpret it.

Sometimes, I get everything the artist meant for me to understand on myself, but if you are anything like me, you come across a song/album that just refuses to give up its meaning to you. More often than not, we go to Youtube, and sometimes to Genius, and if it comes to it, interviews. However, I believe the best way is none of those.

That others haven’t said already

Its been two months since I started my challenge, and I felt I would have something profound to say about it every few months, but I don’t. And I don’t want to sugarcoat it by saying ‘These X things ACTUALLY helped me’. That would be a sad day for me, for sure.

What I will say, though, that I think I undervalued three things at the start:

  • Curation
  • Followers
  • Read time

Now that I know that, and that I have already crushed the goals for even my last checkpoint — not the reads, or the read ratio, but that’s fine…


Conspiracies

He shall remain nameless, but he helped me a lot

I had a curious friend — a neighbour, in fact — who told me all sorts of things. Very weird things, but he spoke seriously. I thought of him as a trivial man, hence I gave very little attention to what he said. Sometimes, however, I was free when he narrated and I, for I had nothing better to do, listened with intent.

The day before yesterday, I found myself in a similar situation and listened. He began:

“I have a great one in store for you today, just heard it from one of my highly secretive acquaintances.” …


Achieve conviction with these 3 methods.

Almost everything I write about is subjective, even this article. That does not mean I should lack conviction. Let us take my own example. I write about many topics, but the most common are literature, music and writing. I am not bragging, but I like art and deep dives into the same, a lot. While that is fun, I am stranded, during almost every article, at the conclusion. I cannot conclude by saying A is better than B, or A should be B, or anything along those lines because art is subjective. Of course, I can’t. But that means I…


Chapters 31–40

Blurb- Rigel and his family are overly delighted about their lottery win. The lottery win takes them to places they’ve never been before and makes them make decisions with enormous implications, not only to their lives but to society as a whole. It is a story of choices, of decisions and results of those decisions.

CHAPTER XXXI

‘Has Sam returned to your residence, Mrs Danby?’

‘I am afraid they haven’t returned yet.’

‘Please send Winston to homes soon as they reach back. His phone is unreachable.’

‘What did you expect?’


‘Call Me If You Get Lost’ is a brilliant project that only Tyler could have put together

A Record that will get you from the start. To put this album’s brilliance in perspective, I already listened to it, front to back more than twelve times. And. enjoyed. every. moment. of it.

Tyler, the Creator, the former leader of ‘Odd Future’ and the artist who gave us two of the best albums last decade, ‘Flowerboy’ and ‘Igor’, dropped his seventh(!) album on 25th June 2021. I have a lot of thoughts, believe me, a lot of them. But, I am still confused. Let us begin.

CHAPTER XXVI

‘Winston, come here.’

‘Yes sir, what happened?’

‘We are missing a book. Do you know where it is?’

‘Which book sir?’

‘‘The History of Dreamland’ from the restricted section’ The curator blurted out, knowing Winston…


No restrictions this time!

I wrote an article titled ‘5 Songs I cannot Live Without’ last month, and had various restrictions, like one song per artist, genre, and album.

This time? None of that.

This will be a long — and highly subjective — one. I will provide some information about every song. That means at least 50 paragraphs. Be ready.

Let us Begin!

50. ‘The Wilhelm Scream’ by James Blake

A beautiful, enthralling, and chilling journey. What a build-up, what a crescendo, what a song. Am I the only one who thinks James Blake should return to this sound?
