internet has been a positive and negative as far as finding ‘weird’ things for material on one hand it’s so much harder because we all have so much more trivial fleeting knowledge that pointing out some new piece of esoterica often instead of making us think, makes us reminisce on the other, there’s so many more voices, if you’re willing to patiently sift....

Sympathy for the ∆EVIL
∆AIMON show at SXSW 2012 got busted up by cops after people reported it as a suspicious occult gathering. if someone has pics of the raid or cop cars outside, hook me up. apparently some people wouldn’t enter the venue at all cause the dark energy was so strong, heh. props to my best peeps on this. this is the stuff that builds history.
Preteen Pornstar will do a few shows in the american north in June, supporting ∆AIMON. Wisconsin/Michigan area. for the PP set it’s probably going to be 2 ipads + 3 ipod/iphones, stripping down audio from old songs, isolating recognizable fragments, looping them, then improv with audio tools on top of that. some vocals. the whole thing will need to fit in a backpack

i’ve never been clear on where the exact line between “a safe space” and “a gender stereotype defining space” is. i can see a valid argument being made for pintrest being both. a place where “girls” are allowed to be “girly” and mutually reinforce each other in things that they’re usually not allowed to discuss online without someone...

everything me and devin say sounds like a Caustic Optimism script [me] ayumi hamasaki and amuro namie should have a short-off [devin] as in the clothing? [me] no, for who is shortest [devin] ooh. I thought they both wore short shorts. I’d pay to see that [me] that’s a better idea
In 2008 Santorum said “The corruption of culture, the corruption of manners, the corruption of decency is now on display whether it’s the NBA or whether it’s a rock concert or whether it’s on a movie set”. Look Ricky, I’m doing my best here, but making me join the NBA while only 5’10” is a bit unfair.

i was just making fun of people who post lyrics in their facejournaltwitblogs, and then that cover of “you could be mine” came on, and the vocal said “don’t forget to call my lawyer with ridiculous demands and you can take the pity so far but it’s more than i can stand” and here i am

taking a moment to thank everyone who, through conscientious objection or otherwise, never joined or served in the military. thank you.
perhaps i’m projecting slightly, but i really think that no one becomes a musician because they love music. if you love music, you become a music listener. you become a musician if you think everyone else doing music is wrong, boring, stupid, and dull. but again, perhaps i’m projecting slightly.
nothing quite as indignant as a cat whose space you just invaded. he also had a great cat expression going earlier while i was watching a youtube video with a lion in it. i should see if i can set up a photo with his face and a tv going. he usually gets very interested in shows that have baby birds
