thecreativeintersection asked: I might be wrong, but I don't think you've ever done an illustration of a Mountain Goats song like I've seen a lot of artists do for bands they like. Is there a reason for this?

Your body is made of the same elements that lionesses are built from. Three quarters of you is the same kind of water that beats rocks to rubble, wears stones away. Your DNA translates into the same twenty amino acids that wolf genes code for. When you look in the mirror and feel weak, remember, the air you breathe in fuels forest fires capable of destroying everything they touch. On the days you feel ugly, remember: diamonds are only carbon. You are so much more.

Dude From Rivers of Nihil Inspires, Shames Other Touring Musicians Just By Being Cool

johndarnielle:

So, this is really cool. Brody from Rivers of Nihil, instead of spending his downtime on tour as all other musicians do (looking at the internet on their phones and reading the funny stuff aloud to others in the van, who are all wearing headphones and can hear nothing), is offering guitar lessons. At the quite-reasonable rate of forty bucks a session. Brody can shred and Rivers of Nihil make quality death metal that owes a debt to At the Gates, which is a decent debt to incur. They also have some lovely dreamy half-speed intervals, their songs go places and repay the listener generously.

He’s not coming closer than Charlotte and I expect to have my hands pretty full in December so I probably won’t be signing up for a lesson myself (though, honestly, if they were playing Durham I totally would) but I wanted to spread the word because this just seems like a super-cool thing to me; metal bands at the Rivers of Nihil level aren’t bringing home big paychecks, metal is largely a labor of love and I’d guess any coin he takes in from this will go straight back into the gas tank. All the information and dates are at the link (in the title of this post) and I hope at least one person shares my “damn, that’s pretty cool” reaction and maybe goes and gets a lesson from this outstanding young death metal guitarist.

Perspective. 

"Looting? I thought these were supposed to be nonviolent protests"

I know it’s incredible! People are literally coming out of the woodwork to comment on this photoset to focus on the looting headline with “well yes it is nice they were helping people hit with the tear gas, but stealing is still wrong uwu” as if they’re back to kindergarten morality.

Like everyone who’s gone to boot camp I’ve been tear gassed. They put about 50+ of you in a gas chamber and toss it in. You have to stay there until your rank is allowed to exit. Before that though, you have to say your name, rank, and social security number. You then exit and file into ranks (again) outside and are not allowed at any point to rinse your face or eyes for the entire day.

That right there? Easily the worst part of boot camp. My eyes were literally swollen shut. I was blinded for a good 30 minutes and my chest hurt for days.

I have zero problem and not and ounce of judgement for people raiding a mcdonalds that can easily afford to repair damage for ANYTHING to help ease the shittiness that is being tear gassed. Esp because every one of us in boot were medically sound to deal with tear gas. Children, asthmatics, people prone to panic and anxiety attacks, the elderly as sooo many more are NOT going to handle tear gas well at ALL.

Or that smoke the police use either.

It’s easy to sit there and judge someone from the safety of your home and say things like “it’s just tear gas” or “it can’t be that bad”.

Fuck you. As someone who HAS been gassed, you need to stfu.

I remember all the preparation they did to get us ready for the gas chamber in boot camp. We were taught how to handle ourselves, how to control our breathing, not to touch anything, how to avoid the worst of the gas. But it still didn’t matter. I remember taking in that first breath and feeling like I had just been kicked in the chest. I remember a few guys in my platoon falling down and vomiting. We knew the gas wasn’t as bad on the floor but we were the fifth platoon through and the vomit kept us from bending over more than absolutely necessary. I remember a few guys, guys in peak health training to be infantrymen, breaking ranks and running for the door only to be dragged back in kicking and screaming until they said name, rank and serial. They were expecting it, trained for it, bragging about how it wouldn’t bother them.
I remember standing there with all of the mucus from my nasal cavity on the front of my ACUs and thinking to myself “This is the nonviolent option?”
Covered head to toe and my skin still itching I looked down at the silver wedding band hanging next to my dog tags and realized that the gas had eaten little pits into its surface.
I stood there and thought of all the news reports I had seen over the years. The uprisings and revolutionaries being gassed, the crowds running from men in masks.
That’s the moment I got it, staring at my ruined wedding band, that’s the moment I realized terrorism isn’t about bombs or who is using them. It’s about controlling people through fear. It’s about removing their ability to act reasonably, to make them seem like the monsters. Terrorism is about triggering people to fight or flight then blaming them for not being rational. It’s about power. Remove someone’s power to act with reason, and you remove their humanity.

Oh fuck

My god this commentary is perfect. Also a reminder that it turned out this “looting” was not that at all, the police bust that window with a bullet and the staff were gracious enough to hand milk out it seems, the protestors did not break in but even if they did just look at what they were trying to do with that milk, look at what they went through. The immense endurance that’s been shown by the people of Ferguson in the face of all this is incredible.

As the concept of dandy was expanded to include women, the Marchesa Casati fitted the utmost female example by saying: “I want to be a living work of art”.

Hey Chaely. Hey. It’s past you.
