"Sleep is still most perfect, in spite of hygienists, when it is shared with a beloved. The warmth, the security and peace of soul, the utter comfort from the touch of the other, knits the sleep, so that it takes the body and soul completely in its healing."

"We take no joy in this," said American Apparel co-chairman Allan Mayer yesterday of the company’s decision to fire its founder, CEO, and card-carrying asshole Dov Charney. Mayer’s pretty much the …
this article’s pretty sick, and also it’s called twilight of the assholes, which in another life, could have been the best album title ever. damn.
i’ve noticed the word hipster, which was kind of resisted as a meaningful designation for a while (adbusters ahoy), has come back into common parlance lately among pretty much everybody (including those who vetoed its use). i don’t know what that means, but it probably means something. maybe just the light at the end of the tunnel.
but yeah the reality that this particular strain of “hip” - the vice/aa/hro status quo - was always this kind of grotesquely conservative, decadent thing that was also invented almost purely to be leveraged to sate the sexual appetites of a different strain of bro has been a topic of convo for many years, neatly summarized by the above writing and the week’s events
describing what ‘hipness’ looks like outside of the readily discernible quantum of mainline 00’s hipness is becoming increasingly difficult but at least it mostly doesn’t look like this. so bring on the future and fuck being cool, just do everything you possibly can to love yourself
What he said! ^^
And yes I was very happy with Twilight of the Assholes :)
"For me, the issue of feminism is just not an interesting concept. I’m more interested in, you know, SpaceX and Tesla, what’s going to happen with our intergalactic possibilities. Whenever people bring up feminism, I’m like, god. I’m just not really that interested."
Lana Del Rey to The Fader. Well this is going to go down like a sack of shit, eh, Tumblr?
LOOK. IT’S EVERY SINGLE STEREOTYPE ABOUT MEN’S RIGHTS ACTIVISTS PUT INTO ONE HANDY-DANDY DEMOGRAPHICS SURVEY SO IT CAN BE STATISTICALLY VALIDATED!! [x]
it really is striking how exact these numbers are - the only time the majority result dips below 84% is on “what issues do you support” - the only question not potentially loaded from the outset by ideological prejudices - what you might call the polled population’s “blue pills”, ahem - and that striking, aggressive fact of nearly all responses hitting 90% or higher (that 88% late in the game, after all, differing from the 94% immediately below it by only 150 responses) - that’s a kind of statistical conformity that comes from several intentionally leading questions (it doesn’t matter if that’s by way of blind spots on the part of the poller or not, and it’s no slight against the results, but that is what a lot of these questions are, and that factors into the results they get) and a community culture predicated on violent retribution centered on the deviate view - a culture whose shape and whose primary benefactors come in sharp focus when taken in its provided demographic context - 99% male, 99% white, 94% invested in cod-invictus-level unbelief posturing, 88% experiencing, for the first time, a fuller exposure to systems not inherently predisposed to their success.
call them angry white male fascists. the absolute rigidity, the statistical consistency, of their response, makes such a conclusion inarguable.
This seems like an appropriate time to bring this information up again.
Behold: the demographics of FUCK THESE PEOPLE
When I was a freshman, my sister was in eighth grade. There was a boy in two of her periods who would ask her out every single day. (Third and seventh period, if I remember correctly.) All day during third and seventh she would repeatedly tell him no. She didn’t beat around the bush, she didn’t lie and say she was taken—she just said no.
One day, in third period, after being rejected several times, he said; “I have a gun in my locker. If you don’t say yes, I am going to shoot you in seventh.”
This is so vital. This is male entitlement.
