LOVE IT IF WE MADE IT // THE 1975
Me, still hoping for a “normal” mv for another noacf song: a fool
the 1975 - be my mistake
I love this picture of him
I swear these boys are tripping on something based on their latest album (
I’m not a massive fan of some of the songs, I could cry tbh) but the descriptions they are putting out with these (trash) songs are kinda winning me over??
Weirdcore’s film is a tale of two star-crossed lovers. It begins with two astronauts floating in space, “drifting in and out of the screen trying to reach each other,” he says. “Then once the beat kicks in it all starts turning into patterns; and then reverts to deep space when the beat stops and loops back to start.”
Study anything for long enough and patterns begin to emerge. In Weirdcore’s hands, the whole universe is a pattern: images of astronauts and other interstellar bodies – asteroids, spacecraft, Earth, the planets, the Milky Way – are repeated over and again in dancing, rhythmic, shifting and intricate patterns. Space, his piece suggests, is a great cosmic dance of planets waltzing around one another.
In response to ‘Bagsy Not In Net’ he’s made an animated collage that shifts and remakes itself; a kaleidoscopic planetarium which was choreographed in advance and then performed live on his desktop to the song and recorded on his screen. While locked down at home, Weirdcore was dreaming of lovers in space.
“Leaving you here,” sings The 1975’s Matty Healy, “is the thing that I fear so I fight it.” Both astronauts try to come closer throughout the song, to join the thousand-mile-high club, or maybe just to feel the intimacy of touch, but can’t.
Over Matty’s repeated refrain of “Do you wanna leave at the same time?” they do, in the end, leave at the same time, but not together; both drift off into the void and disappear into the blackness, into the night, as lovers often do.

remember on annie mac’s show when adam goes “stop showing off” to matty and he goes “it’s my JOB”
So I saw you again. You’ve gotten so skinny. Your blue eyes haven’t changed though. Glad to see your hand healed up after you beat the shit out of those cars that night we took acid. I wish we talked more. You told me you regret not talking to me more. You love to be watched. You live for it. You want to be adored, and I adore you, but you don’t seem to care. I told you your kisses felt like home and you kissed me more. It was so different sleeping in a bed with you instead of on the floor in your bus. I got to wake up next to you for the first time in months. I’ve only felt religion when I’ve lied with you. It kills me knowing this is it. This is our last stop. You go back to Sydney and live your life, while I try to finish school and hopefully not die of a drug overdose. You said you finally got to know me more. You said “absence makes the heart grow fonder” or some bullshit like that… You said you loved my hair. You couldn’t wait to give me your shirt so I’d have an excuse to come see you one last time before you leave for good. You couldn’t stop kissing me and I couldn’t stop loving it. Then, you pulled back and the sunset was right in my eyes. “You’ve still got those beautiful eyes”.
I was getting over you. I was over you. Things were starting to be okay for me. But now, I’m spiralling backwards. It takes two hours for me to get to you. I was so fucked up on the train yesterday, I can’t remember getting off it. But I remember seeing you. You. I’ve never seen anyone better and I doubt I ever will again. It makes me so unbelievably sad to see you go… Again…
I know you’ll have such an amazing life, I just feel so selfish for wanting it to be with me. But I guess the good die young, and so did this, so it must be better than I think it is.
You are my favourite tragedy.
