why is this a big effing deal?

"Several hundred people gathered Sunday at the Metropolitan Museum of Art to protest the recent decision by the Smithsonian Institution to remove a contentious video from a current exhibit at the National Portrait Gallery in Washington, D.C.

The video, "A Fire in My Belly," which was created by the late New York artist David Wojnarowicz and had been part of the exhibition "Hide/Seek: Difference and Desire in American Portraiture," includes a scene of ants crawling over a crucifix. The film was removed following criticism from, among others, the Catholic League and Rep. John Boehner (R-Ohio)..."

Beware the Firely Satan Breath of the Green Dragon

This is just beyond belief. Apparently God hates people that want to save his supposed greatest creation. This is one of those things that make you sit back, take a deep breath, and do everything you can not to load up your car with explosives, drive it to your local parish and blow the shit-spewing idiots to hell.

I've got a new "green" technology... we take all these backwards, brainless Christians and burn them for energy. Its cheap (everybody's fucking anyways...right? Contraceptives, abortion and basically sex are all sins so there's plenty of illegitamate christians that are gonna burn in hell anyways right?), renewable (they're known for spitting out way to many babies), and we get the added energy reductions associated with reducing the population; particularly the segment of the population with the highest affinity for suburbia, SUV's, and being overweight.

pretty close to the original...

drugs are cool.

"DURHAM, N.H. -- The University of New Hampshire has been ranked the No. 1 "druggiest" college in the nation by website The Daily Beast.

Five of the top 10 schools are in New England: UNH (1), Northeastern University (2), Bryant University (3), University of Maine (4) and Williams College (10)."

this blew my mind..

from espn:

"BOSTON -- Free agent slugger Manny Ramirez so far is without a job for 2011, but he'll still be drawing paychecks for years to come, regardless of whether another team signs him.

One of those teams that will be enriching Ramirez is the Red Sox, who will be paying Ramirez $1.94 million for the next 16 years, beginning in 2011. That's part of the $31 million in deferred payments contained in the eight-year, $160 million contract Ramirez signed with the Sox in 2000.

Ramirez has an additional $15 million coming over the next three years in deferred payments from the Los Angeles Dodgers. He is to be paid in installments of $3,333,333 in 2011 and 2012, followed by an $8.3 million windfall in 2013. (All contract figures from Cot's baseball contracts.)

Monday marks the 10th anniversary of the press conference held at Fenway Park to announce Ramirez's signing, which was executed by team owner John Harrington and then-general manager Dan Duquette. Ramirez's acquisition was looked upon in part as impetus for the building of a new Fenway Park, for which Harrington was vigorously lobbying at the time."

from the vault.

i know, i know, chill..

but i really love this song right now. it's not the lyrics specifically it's got an intangible, just enjoy the song, quality.

right down to the cover of the ep. that image of the legs crossed, clutching the remote really resonates..

tv is the ultimate form of blowing it yet it's somehow inescapable. yeah, i've pulled the ol' live without a tv for like 3 years too..

"fuck tv. no, we just steal internet."

i still watch just as much mindless bullshit if not more..

maybe it's the liquor doing the thinking but..

this is a great fucking tune. fucking a boys. way of the road. i'm also blaring superchunk 'slack motherfucker' hard too but i can't find it on the youtubes..

sufjan stevens sucks.

come on P.I. brethren, don't let me down on this one. if i'm wrong, let me know and i'll only argue about it if i'm super drunk.

i've listened to his "old stuff", i gave the 'age of adz' plenty of listens on the recommendation of some fairly reputable sources and came back each time thinking the same thing:

sufjan whatever the fuck his name is is overrated and crummy.

the album is boring, the songs go nowhere, nothing catches me, yet i've heard some people hailing this ahole as the next jeebus christ.

so, am i blowing it here?

or metaphorically poking it right in that mental gspot we're all thinking?

as always, because this is AMERICA LAND OF THE FUCKIN FREE, you make the call!

off! ?

goin to see these guys (keith morris) 'off!' this Saturday at the glasshouse with headliner no age, la sera (vivian girls offshoot), crystal antlers (they're better than their name), the soft pack and a few other la locals...

12 bux!

clearly off! sounds like black flag, particularly the guitar, and the video is undeniably socal, but i still dig it.

as much i say fuck topical, politcal lyrics i suppose it's still punk..

but i suppose being punk is as wack as being a shitty hipster these days so who am i to judge..

perhaps our dads were cooler than we thought?

Turkey Day 2010 Part II


A truly fine spread... one of the finest birds I've ever ingested.

Fitz one handing off the ruff...

Rippy Rippin...

Hacksaw preparing to mount some tasty foul...

Turkey Day 2010

Turkey day in Santa Cruz was pretty epic. Rippy and Dougy came down from snow-buried Tahoe. Hacksaw and Bridge came up from LA. Smokestack came down with a crew in the tour bus/rapemobile. Tons of good people showed. Good times were had by all. I think the highlight of the night for me might have been the dancing that ensued during this George Clinton music video which I stumbled upon while trying to cue up an old childhood favorite - "Everybody Walk the Dinosaur."

If you ever want to send a dance party into an all out frenzy, cue this video up on a huge TV and crank the volume. The video description on youtube says its from the Super Mario Bros movie...? Smokestack, get off your ass and blog those pics!!

krush the kooks

This saturday I went and skated a ditch north of santa cruz up a trail from the highway 1. The place is pretty rugged but definitely one of the sickest spots I've ever been to. No dirty teens for miles, amazing views, and quirky DIY concrete.good graffiti everywhere
here's a short clip of a line I was trying to get downIf you want to see some people really kill it, check out the first minute or so of this Lakai video. Gunna try to hit this spot up a bunch in the coming weeks and stock some footy.

Faulkner Makes the South Cool

"If I could write all my work again, I am convinced that I would do it better, which is the healthiest condition for an artist. That's why he keeps on working, trying again; he believes each time that this time he will do it, bring it off. Of course he won't, which is why this condition is healthy. Once he did it, once he matched the work to the image, the dream, nothing would remain but to cut his throat, jump off the other side of that pinnacle of perfection into suicide."

----- William Faulkner

If it slipped your radar, The Paris Review recently made every interview with any author they ever gave available to the public at no cost. I'll likely be reading them constantly and giving updates, but a blog recently brought to my attention an interview with William Faulkner which actually managed to exceed my expectations of how awesome an Faulkner interview could actually be.

(not) the next great American novelist?

After mourning David Foster Wallace's death, literary critics began to try to identify the next great contemporary American novelist. I have not yet read a Jonathan Franzen novel, but the hype surrounding this author is absurd. Last month he was called the writer of our generation by The New Yorker yet denounced in Atlantic Monthly. From what I have read of Franzen, the chance of him being the one to fill dfw's shoes is near impossible, but most likely I'll be spending my Thanksgiving break in Austin with my nose in Freedom just to have a real opinion on it and to say that I did.

The main point of all this was to point out a recent review of the novel, but more importantly to share a very cool literary blog:

Yes, I take requests

Judy Nylon should be every girl's role model. She is the Judy in Eno's "Back in in Judy's Jungle" and Eno even cites her as an influence (Eno has influences?!) as does John Cale. She was a leader amongst the No Wave crowd in New York way back when and instead of self promoting like some female musicians (cough, Nico, cough), it's difficult to even find a Judy Nylon CD. If you weren't there, you missed it. Below is the only recording I own of hers, a cover of Jailhouse Rock (better quality than the version in that video). I hope you enjoy.

instruments? i got an iphone!

iphones will someday replace everything we hold dear. the singularity begins with the iphone.
