Hudson Mohawke - “Chimes”
I’m having a rare moment of watching TV, and the Apple commercial played this song. It sounded familiar until I remembered I heard it live when I saw TNGHT as one of the opening acts for Disclosure last summer. Let me tell you, the bass and horns vibrate the hell out of your body when you hear it from a full soundsystem.
The other week I lost my temper and said some stuff about Marvel’s announcements of Captain America and Thor, who are replacing White Captain America and Dude Thor. I’ve been thinking about it a lot, mulling it over, because it’s been pretty inescapable.
I like Marvel’s characters. I think that…
Powerful message by Hermanos. Tip of my hat to this.
Daft Punk - “Human After All / Together / One More Time (Reprise) / Music Sounds Better With You”
This is an amazing encore. Great song to run to, as well.
First off, it was probably a terrible decision to jump onto a thread on what would be a good replacement to PUA for men. I didn’t know anyone save for one person (holla, Sav) but I’m a glutton for punishment and reading the dumbfuckery other guys put on the subject always interest me. I’m not continuing on said thread and posting here because fuck it I have you, dear tumblr, where I can block anything faster if I need to.
First off, let me be clear: The whole Pick Up Artist thing is a goddamn joke and an unhealthy one to boot. It gives men a false sense of entitlement in dealing with women and the type of encouragement it teaches can hurt in the long run. That’s all I’m going to say because that’s not my issue.
Here’s my beef: Why, in the living fuck, do you decide to start talking about things outside the issue of men in a thread about PUAs? Why start veering off into feminism? Why into slut-shaming? If you in fact give a shit about men, wouldn’t you actually care about, oh I don’t know, males? And how they fit in society, not women? It’s shit like that where threads get ruined, by weak-ass men clearly butthurt by some previous internet thread where they got burned. No one wanted that baggage, homie, and then the ones that pick up the bags are MRA assholes waiting for their turn to jump on and shit on the whole thing.
We’re talking about how to fix the fellas,and then people like come in jumping in saying “but hey we need to talk about the ladies too!”
No. We. Fucking. Don’t.
That’s for later. When there are actual women that can add to the conversation and can defend themselves, positively.
Or are you so hurt you can’t see that either? Maybe you need more help than you think you do.

Uh, thanks? I’m going to have to disagree with you on that, however.
Thanks again, though.
|Older Peruvian Lady:||Excuse me, are you from Peru?|
|Me:||Yeah, I was born in Lima.|
|OPL:||Oh OK. I just didn't think you were, you don't look it, are you half-Peruvian, maybe?|
|Me:||Nope, 100%. I'm just really mixed genetically. [Take off my sunglasses] See?|
|OPL:||Oh! You look Filipino!|
|Me:||[Almost drop my beer and point and her, laughing uncontrollably]|
Been a while.
You won’t believe the last month, in terms of life, and how much launching a new book which includes as much of you as WicDiv does takes out of you as a human. I normally write five new pages a day minimum, every work day. For the first third of June, I wrote nothing.
The WicDiv Playlist entries on “Alice” and “The Seventh Seal” were written masterfully and I’d never listened to those songs. This is the first one for one I had listened to, and Jesus Christ, it’s amazing and frustrating to read. Amazing because it’s so damn personal, Phonogram-esque and perfect - frustrating because I do have plenty of pieces like it sitting in parts of my head and computer that are nowhere fucking near that caliber.
