Currently at the gym talking to two hot straight boys about football while jumping rope but to be honest in the back of my mind all I can think about is how amazing a matt and kim christmas album would be…
“and just when I got fed up with that grey sky the sun came out of no where like a bar fight and it knocked out the wind and it bruised me with light and I felt grateful for living just like I feel tonight”
Mamihlapinatapai is a word from the Yaghan language of Tierra del Fuego, listed in The Guinness Book of World Records as the “most succinct word”, and is considered one of the hardest words to translate. It describes “a look shared by two people with each wishing that the other will initiate something that both desire but which neither one wants to start.”
A word is needed for this situation, as it’s something I’ve experienced before and it would be nice to have a word for it. I would use “Mamihlapinatapai” if I had any idea how it is supposed to be pronounced.
I’ve listened to this I-don’t-know-how-many times, and I still don’t know why anyone other than Nicki Minaj even bothered recording a verse. The entire song is her. And the beat. And wondering how Bon Iver got involved.
