So, kids these days don’t mosh or stage dive at shows? What, you just gently sway back and forth while looking at your shoes? No joke, I read a post about how moshing was a form of bullying…

One of my favorite show memories was in the circle pit at a Crucial Unit show; people spontaneously began jumping onto other people’s backs & sitting on their shoulders and we had a two-tier pit going. It was fucking ridiculous. 

Times, they are a changin…

Huh, so it’s been nearly a month since I’ve posted anything. I guess there really hasn’t been much going on as of late, except for this one thing…

I was in a 99 Cents Only store the other day and guess what, there was a lot of stuff priced over 99 cents. WHAT THE ACTUAL FUCK. That weird energy drink with the label in Danish that was intended for the Greenland marketplace, but bombed? Fuck yea I want to try it, but not for $1.79. There is one premise behind your store; all that terrible, fantastic shit you sell is only 99 cents. 

As you can tell, I’m really getting into some meaningful things in my free time… 

At two thirty on a Tuesday afternoon I find myself sipping on a beer and shooting off my resume to a job I’m woefully overqualified for, but which would actually allow me to use my Cultural Anthropology degree…

Rain Drinkers - Wood Violet c40Honestly, it’s a little intimidating listening to “Wood Violet”. The nuanced combination of orchestral neoclassical, ambient, European folk, and psych drone is stunning; one gets the feeling that the duo behind Rain Drinkers is just a little past your level of comprehension. It’s not the thing for everyone, but I think this little cassette is fucking amazing.

Summer, in review…

So, I’d written this long post about how awful this summer was; the job bullshit, suffering from depression, drinking cheap beer, my creative malaise, etc., but after reading, I decided fuck that nonsense. Yea, it was pretty fucking lame, but the important thing is I’ve pulled myself out of it and am moving on.

Fuck, since when did I become a glass-half-full type?
