I just like creating stuff and trying to make good work, whatever it is. I don’t...– Andre 3000 (via jessethorn) I have intensely mixed feelings about this quote. It’s a nice sentiment in theory but the actual output of its source isn’t working in its favor. Because uh… nobody wants a damn Andre 3000 toothbrush! And I sincerely doubt that Andre 3000 possesses the skills necessary to...
Million Mom's Complain About Every Stupid Thing →
Pretty fascinating, how these women are so utterly terrified and upset over human sexuality as a concept. Worth noting here is that, for better or for worse, they aren’t hypocrites. They decide to pepper into their homophobia a dash of good old fashioned fear of (heterosexual) sex just to make it fair. Then again, Jesse Thorn had a really wonderful take on how meaningless the whole...
Need to put my life in order. Things are getting to that depressing level of sadness and general destitution. On the plus side, listening to “Oh Comely” at work makes me feel better.

First read the link. Then read THIS. This story is SO FUCKING STUPID that I absolutely love it and felt the need to share it. It is meant to be that perfect “inspirational”/”motivational” poster idea, the main title, in all caps being “AWARENESS” the central thesis of which being “IN THIS FAST PACED MODERN WORLD, A PERSON NEEDS TO TAKE TIME TO SLOW DOWN...

Bold Statements: Downton Abbey edition
Downton Abbey is straight up boring. Deal with it, internet. I’ve watched 6 episodes so far, diligently putting in my time with the series, and I frankly don’t give a fuck about anyone or anything on this show. it’s all sly smiles and petty scheming, amounting to a big fat boring episode of masterpiece theater carefully stripped of any literary relevance. I feel like the...

momentofmoore: by Tom Spurgeon Ten days or so past the official announcement, I’m thinking More Watchmen may be best understood as a blow to comics’ dignity. It’s product, not art. It’s a limited, small series of ideas derived from a bigger, grander one. It’s sad. One thing that Watchmen did a quarter century ago was to underline certain values of craft and intent and creative freedom that have...
Had a quite lovely, ever so idle day. Attempting to get into Downton Abbey. The reprieve is nice.

fallingdeep: On the ground in Boston!!! Can’t wait to get some Dunkin’ in my hot little hands. This girl gets it.
antirecords: Watch Dr. Dog’s performance of “That Old Black Hole” from last night’s Conan! The new album Be The Void is available now. Y’know, man. This is a band I’ve avoided listening to since FOREVER because I felt like they had the most awful band name imaginable. I keep expecting them to sound like the world’s worst jam band. But this… This is pretty sweet.
The Michael Jackson cacophony is fascinating in that it is not about Jackson at...– James Baldwin on Michael Jackson, 1985 “Freaks are called freaks and are treated as they are treated–in the main, abominably–because they are human beings who cause to echo, deep within us, our most profound terrors and desires.” (via jessethorn)

Dude: '90s Vertigo Comics Had The Gnarliest Ads
Selling a bunch of old Vertigo comics on eBay from 1993 (Sandman Mystery Theatre, for those nerdy and curious, a CRIMINALLY underrated series featuring Matt Wagner and Guy David absolutely slaying some sweet pulpy ‘20 noir), and the back of the issues totally have killer ads for Barq’s Root Beer (featuring RUB ON TATTOOS), Alice In Chains “hot new album ‘Dirt’...
