On the record store's place in society
or why I’ll never purchase my music online. I’ve always had a romantic fascination with the concept of the independent store, which I’m sure was at least moderately influenced by High Fidelity. The idea of a group of individuals getting together and starting a business, directly in the face of huge big box corporations and online retailers with which they simply cannot...
do liberal couples use Fox News as a sex aid? Like, they really enjoy angry sex, but they’re simply too compatible to have any sort of convincing anger at each other, so they flip on Glenn Beck to get riled up and fuck to spite the Christian fundamentalist agenda…does this happen? I’d like to see a study.
Apparently, I can buy a house in Detroit...
for less than what I spent on my skateboard. Get better, Detroit. :(
So, apparently, GLAAD is pissed Tyler, the Creator...
Despite his persona obviously being a character he created to express his anger, his abandonment issues brought on by his father, and the violent imagery perpetuated by our society, despite the fact he routinely calls his fiction just that, fiction, and despite the fact that the individual responsible for most of his beats, as well as one of his best friends, happens to be a lesbian. It’s...
So, apparently, there's a coloring book about...
and it happens to feature the line “Children, the truth is, these terrorist acts were done by freedom-hating Islamic Muslim extremists. These crazy people hate the American way of life because we are FREE and our society is FREE.” It’s nice to know there’s people in this society who’d rather indoctrinate children who know no better rather than actually debate the merits...
About that previous post about Tyler, the...
because now I actually have time to type something up. Tyler has come under pretty constant criticism for his lyrical content, with claims of misogyny and homophobia tossed around in every single one of them. And he’s no exception; rap music in general is viewed quite often in our media as misogynistic and extremely homophobic…..but I’ve got to ask, why is it just rap that gets...
Beard Compliment Translations
tristyntothesea: incarbonite: 97thfloor: “Wow, that’s a really nice beard you have.” I want to have sex with you. “Are you working on growing a beard?” I would be extremely attracted to you if you started growing a beard. “I hope you’re planning on growing out your beard for winter.” I would be DTF if you had a winter beard. “Your beard looks good today.” My pants are coming...
This Heat - Paper Hats so good.
Hey JS, where does your Tumblr name come from?
Good question! It’s a homage to two things; - How The West Was Won, one of the last epics produced by MGM to enjoy any sort of success, and one of the two dramatic feature films to use the Cinerama process. - How The Midwest Was Won, a compilation put out by Subfuse and Kiss of Winter, featuring Cap’n Jazz and the super under-appreciated Friction and Sunspring.
Bill Nye, discussing global warming and its effect on weather patterns on Fox News. Why does this feel like a teacher trying to explain science to a first grader?
St Vincent - Cruel, on Letterman I don’t know if you guys know this, but Annie’s wearing that dress when we get married. I’d say all of Tumblr is invited to the ceremonies, but I’m not dishing that much cash out for you people.
Why is Tumblr getting so worked up about the new...
You mean, a major international website is available in more than just English? Holy fuck!
According to Bachmann, the hurricane was a message...
to reduce government spending. I hope God knows the government’s going to be paying for the clean up. :(

I already dislike this theme...
but I’m far, far too lazy to make one for my own.
Things I can legally* say about Michelle Bachman
*Technically, given her position as a public figure, I’m given quite a bit of leeway in the things I can say without getting libelous. However, as I’m pretty certain she slept through the majority of her law classes, and I don’t feel like getting sued (she’s on Tumblr all the time, you know), I’ll keep things purely factual. - Bachmann honestly believes a nuclear...
You know, I think it's about time
for me to learn how to ride a bike.

la-mort-vivante: 5 Unexpected Downsides of High Intelligence fille-impaire: 5. You’re Probably a Night Owl (which is bad!) - Recently, scientists discovered a quirky side effect to having a high IQ: You tend to stay up until later hours and get up later in the morning. These… Reality is depressing.
The VMAs were tonight?
I’m not even trying to be fashionably unaware of the mainstream….I don’t recall hearing anything about them.
Remember that one time when I met Jenny Lewis and she gave me a hug and I was exactly as awkward as I make myself out to be? Good times.
Dear New Yorkers playing in the flood water;
You might want to schedule an appointment for a tetanus shot at your earliest convenience.
So, I guess I just don’t sleep on Saturday nights anymore.
