Justin Bieber Gets Slow
When you slow down Justin Bieber’s “U Smile” by 800%, you get a song so unrecognizable that some commenters on Gawker purported it to be an entirely different song called “Echoes Across the Astral Wasteland” by a band called Photon Wave Orchestra. That should clue you into what this masterpiece created by Nick Pittsinger actually sounds like: no, not a slow jam––it’s way too slow for that. More like an ambient track you might hear while getting a massage or doing yoga. (Gawker compares it to Animal Collective!)
Pittsinger and Gawker insist that the bizarre but quite beautiful track Pittsinger created, using a free program called Paulstretch, is indeed a new version of “U Smile,” not a Photon Wave Orchestra song. Or an Animal Collective song. Or a Sigur Rós song. Some people find the Bieb’s voice to be the most soothing sound in the world, but for those who don’t, this 35-minute transformation of it might successfully get you through the rest of your Friday.
Here’s a YouTube fan video of the original “U Smile” for comparison’s sake:

I once read that the idea of “safe space” is an illusion we use to comfort ourselves. In what places are we really safe?
‘Dazed and Confused’ is my most rewatchable movie.
They love to count their ignorant, yolk filled eggs before they hatch, which often leads to embarrassment and regret.
It truly makes me happy to see the smiling faces of other people, especially when those smiles were formed by something I did. But for how long does that happiness actually last?
