I played a gig tonight at a pizza place and I got free pizza and got to play for only like 8 people, four of whom were friends and I had to play a two hour set but it was still great and I had a ton of fun.
It’s really nice being able to do what I love doing. Life is really good, and I’m really proud of myself for how much I’ve turned my shit around since last year. I never thought I’d be at this point, ya know?

“My mother is a personal trainer. She could tear the head off of a fully grown black bear and yet she’s still afraid to drive through some parts of town with her windows rolled down. I have friends who won’t wear what they want to wear because they’re afraid some homeless piece of shit or some drunk frat-boy or some basketball short wearing, monster chugging bastard is going to catcall them or worse.
I have absolutely zero idea what any of that shit feels like. None. I’ve never had to deal with it directly.
But it doesn’t mean that I can’t be a goddamned feminist. It doesn’t mean I can’t be an activist. Because I want my friends to be able to wear whatever the fuck they want without being cat called. I want my mom to be able to walk to her car and not be afraid. I want all those “friendzoned” bastards to realize that the “Friendzone” doesn’t exist except as a crutch for them to explain away their shitty personality and lack of a rational, empathetic brain.
The point I’m trying to make here is that you can’t discredit an entire faction of support for the movement just because we haven’t experienced discrimination and hate first hand. We care deeply about people who have and we care deeply about the entire feminist movement as a whole. Don’t count me out just because I’m a CIS straight white boy. Trust me, I get that I am privileged. I do. But everyone has been through shit. It doesn’t change the fact that I am still a feminist. I was raised a feminist. I still love the people who are hurt by misogyny, so I still care goddamit.”
Sincerely, a guy.
I felt like I needed to post this. I’m sick of seeing hate all over the goddamn place.

Carry on into the streetlight, darlings.
Your beds are on fire and there’s dirt below your nails.
You’re buried in caskets you built for yourselves
You’re trying so hard you’re trying to fail
And fail and fail.
The forest doesn’t hum it growls,
It claws in fear and hate and it can smell
The stench of failure on you,
It can taste the oil on your clothes.
“Let’s go back”, the taillights fade as they speak,
The silence is golden, broken, and weak
And there’s miles to go before you sleep
Miles away from sleep.
You’re all violent and unkind,
Kissing windless days and self-satisfied
And someone I know died today,
Threw his hands up, quit,
Just walked away, his patience
Waned, his body wracked
With shit so heavy
He couldn’t look back and
There’s a million ways to die
But only one way to go.
I’m getting older, going somewhere
I’ve learned some rules
And broken most of them
I’m getting slower, but not much wiser
This chrome is burning,
The engine’s on fire
I’m getting older, But I’ll never sleep
The taillights fade, and so they speak
“I’ve got promises to keep”
I’m a lover, I’m a loser, I’m a thief.
The taillights fade and so they speak
“One whole year, you’re rid of me”
Three six five in one two three
I’m getting older, but Christ, I’m free.

humans are so cute, when we say goodbye we put our arms around each other and to show we love someone we bring them flowers. we say hello by holding each other’s hand, and sometimes tiny little dewdrops form in our eyes. for pleasure we listen to arrangements of sounds,…
you must be fun at parties
I’m a fucking blast, goddammit.
Everyone likes talking about the futility of life, right?
Look, I love life, it’s great. People are great. But part of why we’re great is that we’re literally SO FUCKING SHITTY. If that makes any sense. I just hate when people are like “wow! Everything is awesome, us people we’re swell, just chillin and partying all the time wow” that’s not what being human is. Being human is about being an inherently shitty, self-interested creature that sometimes does really great things before we die. We’re all terrible. We’re the fucking worst. But that’s part of what makes us so fucking rad.
