“there are great moments in awards shows. bruno mars sounded really good doing ‘valerie’ for amy winehouse. i don’t think anyone is bummed that adele is killing everything. her voice was real and focused when i went thru and watched highlights from tonight. kanye and jay z are always murdering. beyonce is pregnant. yes this is awesome as shit, culturally speaking. but can i just ask, the reader, us, we … as non-rhetorically as possible: don’t we seem dumb? didn’t MTV lose the fight against themselves? Didn’t Rock’n’Roll STOP? Why are the lights so bright? isn’t our talent as artists enough? Why do we try SO hard? Does a moonman mean what it did back then? Should we feel pumped when we get one? Should our mom’s cry? I am not even thinking about it that hard. I will close my eyes in 90 seconds and have total peace… But, seriously. Why are we waving around so much? Why do we NEED this shit so bad? Why don’t we just have MUSIC? DO music? soul? I don’t know. I don’t mean to criticize. Anyone. Actually. Except for MTV. You might have had a very large opportunity to be stabilize your self as a global presence of culture and art about 15 years ago and you fucked the dog. Sorry. Im with my girls on this one.

Better say this: Forget what I say. If you even read this, you’ll probably say to yourself, who is this ass saying shit? It doesn’t matter what i say. it doesn’t matter, it doesn’t matter. But this one last thought: What would Bill Hicks say?”—Justin Vernon let it rip on his blog
Okay, now I know this might come across as all Chicken Little in the age of downloadable media and overhyped weather events, but what should I horde for the weekend? In case bandwidth drops to zero and rain keeps me and my cast and my brace indoors, what should I grab while the grabbing’s good? So far I’ve written down:
That, is how long each arm will have its cast or brace on for. just my way of saying welcome to the exclusively short form jungle. also? my grammar is going to shit as of late, and i’m blaming the injuries.
Left: a sprain, Right: broken hook of the hamate bone.
And after all this short entry, some pain. so goodnight!
I think if I was ever in the situation, god forbid, of being sexually assaulted and someone asked me “what were you wearing?” I would break their nose in one punch. What I don’t understand is even cops will ask the question of “what were you wearing?” as if wearing a dress or short gave the rapist…
