Jeff Mangum - April 8th

"Crawl across toward your window
I’m calling softly from the street
Always a lonely widow
Half awake and sleeping on my feet

I’m of age but have no children
No quarter phone booth calls to home
Just late television
Inside my bedroom all alone”

Your tax-dollars are being used as the main fuel in a slow yet steady march toward genocide in Gaza. Three more children were killed today. Three more numbers on a chart that most Americans have better things to do than to read. Where do we draw the line?

"I am an ornery character, often hard to get along with. The things I cannot stand, that make me flare up like a cat making a fat tail, are pretentiousness, smugness, the coarse grain that often shows itself in a turn of phrase. I hate vulgarity, coarseness of soul. I despise small talk with a passionate hatred. Why? I suppose because any meeting with another human being is collision for me now. It is always expensive, and I will not waste my time. It is never a waste of time to be outdoors, and never a waste of time to lie down and rest even for a couple of hours. It is then that images float up and then that I plan my work. But it is a waste of time to see people who have only a social surface to show. I will make every effort to find out the real person, but if I can’t then I am upset and cross. Time wasted is poison."

- May Sarton, A Journal of Solitude

A few months ago a homeless man was trapped inside an abandoned building by workers, who were supposed to secure the entrance. They failed to check if there’s anyone inside. Body was found after a few weeks, he presumably died of dehydration and/or starvation. Prosecutor decided not to charge anyone.
A graffiti, which appeared on the wall of that building says: “Krzysiu (Chris) died here, locked up, alone, in darkness”.

Ramones - Glad to See You Go (Live at the Palladium)

The news just broke that Tommy Ramone died tonight. My uncle gave me this album on CD when I was thirteen and it was a really big deal for me at the time. RIP to all four of the Ramones. Thanks for the tunes.

xRepentancex - In Violation of Aša

"Betrayal of the greatest form. Life defiled beyond our gaze. A culture of gluttonous hypocrisy. A ritual feast of mankind’s heresy.

In this, the age of ignorance: all warning signs are pushed aside. Drenched in sin and choking on morality; deafened ears to nature’s cries. Bathed in the blood of the innocent. The factory farm, the cage, and the dinner plate: tortures waged and written off as necessity. Made walking corpses in the name of cruelty.”

Psyched to finally announce that we’ve signed to Good Fight Music (Madball, Trapped Under Ice, Terror, Harvest, and a whole lot more). They’re releasing our 7” “Plague Prophecy” this August. I’m super excited to work with them. You can check out the official press release at the link below:

Culture - Pillars

"I will always contest your self-involved apocalypse. We are the pillars of this social edifice and though we strengthen, we need not support. Their plan will oxidize our foundations lest we deflect erosive thought."

Found this on youtube earlier today. Very cool.

as long as there are fresh young bodies willing to throw themselves into the meat grinder of being a touring band for a few years with little in return besides the opportunity to yell and play guitars at a room full of strangers and eat shitty vegan food, the price of hardcore shows isnt going to change. outside of jam bands and edm (and maybe juggalos), there's no genre that depends on the live show as much as hardcore. you'd think people would learn to put more value on it.

selfdefensefamily:

This is actually the only part of this whole ‘pay hardcore bands fairly’ conversation that upsets me. Like, sad upset.

You’re right. To most hardcore kids, bands are interchangeable. [Until they go to grad school and don’t have time to keep up on music. Then it’s “I really want to like these new bands, but there’s just no one doing it the way _______ did.”] As long as there’s always a band to fill the void, the quality of the band doesn’t matter and the quality of that bandmembers’ lives sure as shit does not matter.

As a dude who is really into music, this idea just sucks. It’s like people who replace their dog with another the day after the animal dies. Or, people who get new partners in a week. It illustrates that the role was the crucial thing, not the individual. When people do that with bands, it gives me the same creeped out feeling I get whenever the individual is undervalued.
