A song made up of pure gibberish is one of TikTok’s more popular trends/sounds. The appeal of Dville Santa’s “Laboratory/Like A Meebo” is that it’s used to perfectly capture that feeling of trying to explain your point of view, or something that you’re passionate about to someone who doesn’t understand, doesn’t care, fully agrees with you anyway so it doesn’t matter or maybe even knows more than you and can see through the bs you’re spilling. Whether the nonsense comes from the talker, the listener, or a little bit of both, it’s a very human experience of feeling like you’re not being heard, or maybe that even you don’t fully understand the topic you’re rambling about.

The past few weeks have ushered in the fast rise and even more breakneck fall of a previously little-known Tennessee commune, or intentional community, called The Garden when a couple of its members started producing compelling TikToks and inviting anyone and everyone to come visit them. The fact that they published their address on their TikToks and marketed The Garden as a kind of utopia raised red flags for many people as communities like this usually have a vetting process and don’t so blatantly market themselves. This led viewers to investigate The Garden, and the people currently living there, further, and to speculate even harder. Is The Garden a cult or just a bunch of people trying to live sustainably and save the Earth?
