it’s like how when you’re walking down the street and it’s been cold and wet and overcast for a couple days and you see people walking around and at first they look aimless and lost and upset but then you get closer and see that they’re all interacting with each other and smiling and laughing and some of them are holding hands and keeping close to each other to stay warm and then you wonder why you’re disconnected from this beautiful human tapestry that seems to be protecting everyone else from the boring and awful world around them
Connecticut connecticut connecticut. I have to admit (this may be the local bias talking), but I’ve always found Connecticut to have produced better “that scene” bands than most other eastern seaboard states. This year was an interesting one.
why do people grow beards? mustaches? why do people wear plain white v necks that were maybe 5 dollar sale items at h&m? why does saying lowkey see such widespread use? kanye west and drake jokes are still made? people still listen to bands that play at fest? nobody will buy my topshelf crewneck? people still reblog/watch porn and talk about their favorite porn stars? sdf still has followers?
Were you alone in the front row at Titus Andronicus singing along to all the songs and carrying a copy of Marcus Aurelius' Meditations in your back pocket? The pictures you took from the concert seem to be from the correct angle. If so, I'd like to buy you a beer.
I was in the front row by myself at that show but I didn’t have that book. It was probably another Yalie.
“This video presents some of the most stereotypical, if not corny American stereotypes. The desert. The galloping stallions. The beautiful woman. The soft porn. The lone ranger riding his motorcycle into the sunset. And it is all presented in such a simple and uninspiring way that it is almost a mockery of these things. The only thing not stereotypically American here, is the fact that the lone ranger is black. So why is Kanye doing this? Well it is pretty simple, he is talking White American culture, and he is replacing it with a black skin head. This is essentially an aggressive cultural takeover that the average person probably doesn’t even realize is happening. Why else would he debut the video on the Ellen show? It is a white American talk show, with a white American demographic. This man is literally destroying white American stereotypes by making them revolve around him. The funniest part is, hardly anyone realises it. Oh and who is White America’s favourite ‘white’ person? Jesus. I’m sure you all get where I’m going with this”— on Bound 2, via (via 824706)
