    it pisses me off that 4Chan trolls turned the "ok" sign into a white supremacy thing, as a joke. Now it is an actual hate symbol, and every image of someone flashing "ok" is now convoluted by internet troll assholes alongside actual white supremacists. Fuck you. Oh, hahahahaha, wouldn't it be fucking hilarious if we turned the most common symbol into something that sucks? Like they did with the swastika? hahahahahahaha... hilarious, you internet bastards.

    Now I can't look at a picture of Buddha displaying a symbol of peace and tranquility without thinking of this fucking George Santos guy, and his smug chuckly bullshit.

    we've started to see coyotes in our neighborhood recently and this is a new fear. I'm so sorry this happened.

    i'm so sick of trans people being murdered simply for existing.

    a 16-year-old trans girl was stabbed to death by two other teenagers in england after years of transphobic bullying. i've been crying at my desk on and off all morning.

    i go into work 2 hours late every day because when i go in during rush hour, i regularly get harassed. it's fucking terrifying.

    STOP. MURDERING. US.

    I've got some bizarre shit going on: my lymph nodes are all swollen, and I lost all hearing in my right ear, and my face is swollen up, and weird ass pains in weird ass places (alongside normal places like neck, head, and such).

    According to the ER, it's likely corollary to the fucking RA.

    I see new primary doctor on friday.

    Coming out of a show to find you have a flat tire. And the tire is seized so you canít put the spare on and have to wait a hour for AAA. At least Cave In was awesome before that. And Iím seeing them again tomorrow. Was gonna drive 2.5 hours home tonight originally but now Iím in an annoyingly expensive hotel for the night. At least Iíll save on some driving I guess, as tomorrowís show is close by.

    Gold Bond Friction Defense Aloe. It's friction defense, what could possibly make this company think I need something that moisturizes?

    It looks like they phased out the old kind, so the only place you can get it (here) is from the Internet in 3–4 packs for $40. I understand that the old version had aloe vera oil in it, but this new formulation has "entire leaves". And it doesn't work.

    God, I'm an old man.

    Hey, I noticed that there wasn't an update to this - so I thought I'd ask- how are you now? Have things improved? I hope you're doing ok.

    Harry Potter. It was supposed to end. It will never fucking end.

    It's not imaginative, it's annoying. Let's give all our characters shitty annoying-sounding names like "Hufflepiff" and "Snortlebuff" and "Slitherin" and "Shuffleclip" or whatever, and then let's have all our main characters be white, but don't worry, they're be some token non-white characters in the background who will never speak or involve themselves in the story. They're just there to say "hey, Griffendorf Snufflepugglelugalus School is open minded"

    But the whole thing sounds like an episode of Sesame Street / Scooby Doo, and if it ended there it'd be cool, but goddamn do I hate Harry Potter and all of the bullshit behind it. There's nothing endearing about naming your characters shit like "Dumbledore"
    It's just annoying. And more than anything I am sick of adults who don't read books, don't really care about art, whatever, being like "OMG school Hifflepiff!"

    Fuck Harry Potter. If I had kids, which I never will, I'd rather them never read a book in their lives than read some Harry Potter bullshit. I HATE this shit and I cannot believe it will not stop. Harry Potter is the Minecraft of literature. Should we be surprised the author is a hateful bigot?

    Harry Potter was always Great Value Lord Of The Rings to me even before Rowling revealed herself to be a twat.

    I feel this way about most franchises at this point. There's no sense of finality anymore. Stories never have to end if there's money to be made.

    Brother, unfortunately not.
    Now I have a mass in my chest, too, and all the other shit is worse, and not better.
    I've been referred to a breast cancer place,
    and they haven't even read the scans from the soft tissue on my neck, yet.

    Idk. I'm kind of at an "it's been cool" point. But, it's ok.

    THAT is what pisses me off: the "right away" bit.
    A lot of it has to do with where I live. Like, I know it takes time to see a new specialist, ANYWHERE.

    But, goddamn. ALL the soft tissue on the right side of my neck is HARD. I had to wait a week to get these scans...like "do I have lymphoma or not" scans.
    And I GOT the motherfuckers, but the Dr ain't calling me to give me any idea of what in the actual fuck is going on.
    They IMMEDIATELY told me about the necessity of the breast cancer workup, when I had the attempted MAMMOGRAMS, lol, and then the chest sonograms.
    But they told me my primary would have to get back with me on the neck stuff, and the hearing loss, and the fact that I basically have like 10% more shit in my HEAD than usual. (I wish my head would just get bigger).

    I had those tests done on monday, and no-one is calling. I've called THEM, but nobody calls back.

    I'm doing this through the Dumas hospital system, aka the Dumas Morgue (that's seriously what people call this place around here).

    I'm just DAMN glad I see my rheumatologist on monday, in the relative civilization of Amarillo.

    Iím so glad Star Wars gets its own special day. Especially the day before my birthday. AND throughout my birthday, if you buy into the Revenge of the Fifth/Sixth shit.

    Itís not like it gets talked about every waking moment of the rest of the year. Such a small, relatively unknown IP. It really needs the attention. Hopefully, one day, it can have 20 shows, and 15 movies, and 100 games that no one plays but that people keep buying, and a shitzillion toys, and a specially branded Sears refrigerator, and prints, and shoes, and shirts, and popcorn makers, and more prints, and MORE games no one will play, and new trilogies that wonít be made, and new trilogies that will ďsuper duper totally be made for real this time,Ē and more books, and more products, and more products, and more products. Canít wait for next Star Wars show to be announced. Oh boy.

    I canít think of one thing that I personally like that I wish had THAT much cultural saturation. If NIN put out a new album every year, Iíd drop off fast. If Metal Gear had a new game every 6 months, Iíd jump ship so fucking fast.

    But no, product needs a special day. Gotta talk about it aaaaaall day. Everyone needs a Star Wars event to commemorate the thing every human being on earth already knows about. Star Wars Star Wars Star Wars. Canít not talk about Star Wars.

    Sorry. Just. Jesus Christ.

    I'm an older fan and the May 4th stuff just irritates the shit out of me. I try to completely ignore it every year.

    Idk WHO to blame for THIS shit, but i just heard Heroes by Bowie playing in a youtube ad.
    I looked up, thinking it was, you know, about a new doc or something.
    I was terribly mistaken.

    TO MY HORROR, it was a fucking LOUIS VUITTON ad, featuring some youngish leading man Suit type walking away from a private jet, pulling a suitCASE behind him.
    Idk if it was an ad for the suit or the plane or the suitcase or WHAT the fuck, but, apparently, this is the way to become a hero, just for one day.

    So amidst a WHIRLWIND of trying to insulate my mind from increasingly terrifying personal health and financial shit, i saw this.

    At the risk of sounding dramatic, this REALLY, honestly fucked my head up for a minute.

    I had a disagreement with a sidewalk. The sidewalk won.

    I broke my glasses (they were only 4 months old), got scrapes and cuts on my left temple that bled a freaking lot, I sprained both elbows and my right wrist, banged both knees really well. Went to the hospital: nothing broken, got the bleeding cuts and scrapes around my left eyes glued, will have a great black eye to show for a while.

    And once again, brand new eye glasses.

    Could have been a lot worst though; the way my glasses broke, I could have ended with some parts in my eye. That would have sucked.

    Pitchfork Media, what the fuck happened to you man? You used to be snarky and catty and all about "here's some indie music that sucks but you've never heard of it!" You used to be this edgy wannabe Lester Bangs thing, and honestly, you occasionally pointed out some cool music I hadn't heard. Yeah, you were a bunch of edgelord dorks who pretended to like Autechre, but at least that's who you were and you stuck to it.

    Now, whenever I see Pitchfork on my social media, it's like "Taylor Swift has a new album with some bullshit person!" or Drake news. What the fuck. Did somebody buy them out?

    I am signing up for so many medical accounts right now because apparently they all have the same records system? That's great, sure, but I have to create a new account at each new site even though they're connected. This is a little thing that's pissing me off, sure, but the part of it that really grinds my gears is that I can't just copy/paste my email address. Nope, they have disabled that on each of the signup pages so I have to type it out fully every time, and they all have the "type it again to verify" box.

    slightly more than little is that one of them is a place I've been to several times since I moved here in 02 and they only have two visits online, from 18 and 20. wtf.

    I don't really mess around with Twitter, it was always awful... but now when I check it out, ever since Elon Musk took over, my feed is all alt-right politicians and talking heads. I have had to block like 20 accounts already. Back in the day, it showed me stuff by people I actually followed.

    Heyyyyyy...at least we have The Needle Drop. Anthony has turned me on to a LOT of shit over the past ten or twelve years, whether he liked it or not: Odd Future, clipping, old Chance the Rapper, Tyler, Earl Sweatshirt, 100 Gecs, the continued existence of True Widow (of Dallas), the continuing existence of Neon Indian (aka Ghosthustler, of Dallas), JPEGMAFIA, a fucking live interview with Squarepusher, Ghostemane, Ghost, a bunch of other more shit...
    Also, don't forget what Pitchfork said about The Fragile.

    Meanwhile, get you some...hmm...You're already aware of Venetian Snares, Nurse With Wound, Autechre. Baxter, maybe? Broadcast, perhaps?
    And don't miss Fair to Midland, I Love Math, Subtle and all the associated projects, Old 97s, 1100 Springs, Midlake, Slobberbone, The Drams, Funland, Cross Canadian Ragweed, Rasputina, new Tricky & co, "Fuck, most of these bands have been around for decades and we're all 1/2 dead," etc.
    Meanwhile, at least there's this:
