I live in a constant state of early 90s.
When college rock was good, and black people were still on TV.

Someone go pass around flyers about this Brooklyn please.

Y’all let me know if the kids in Williamsburg are planning to pour all their beer out into the gutters a la gay bars (wrongly) pouring out Stoli last year to protest Russia’s human rights record.

     Apple Release Time is my least favorite time of year.

But also my favorite because I can actually justify my overwhelming feeling of annoyance with most of America by looking at pictures of these assholes standing in line for 30 hours and grinning ear to ear over a PHONE that they could’ve just gotten in the mail a couple of weeks from now anyway.

     Playlist: Hard, Loud & Fast

I’m going to need a lot of noise to get through this Friday so I made a playlist.

image

Now that I’ve sat with DFA 1979’s new album for a week or so, I can honestly say it’s one of my favorite releases all year.  I am just so excited they didn’t come back after all that time and totally flop, and that was the jumping off point to put these tracks together (specifically “You’re A Woman, I’m A Machine” from the first album).  I wanted a lot of guitars and a lot of drums and a lot of songs I like to dance to.

Then I realized how exhausting it is to sit through a couple of hours of loud guitars and screaming, so I broke it up with some bands like Paramore and Head Automatica and Jimmy Eat World.  Actually, if y’all have anymore suggestions for bands that are more poppy but still pack a punch, I’ll take em as long as it’s loud enough and fast enough.  I ran home from work to this playlist yesterday and I’m sure I made it home in half my usual time.  (No I didn’t, but it didn’t feel as long.)

Hard, Loud & Fast.

     Random guy behaviors on the subway.

Y’all holler if you’ve noticed the same thing, but what is it with guys preferring to stand up on the subway rather than sit next to another dude?  If that ain’t the dumbest display of “masculinity” I don’t know what is.

     Look at this photo. 7th Heaven had a little reunion.  Those Camden kids were really cute.
::pause::
Back in the day.

I’m sorry, but for all the dirty things Barry Watson and David Gallagher did for my gay puberty in my formative years, I am really unhappy with this photograph and I’m never looking at it again.
I assume Mackenzie Rosman was off by herself somewhere posing in her underwear and being way cuter than this.

     Darren Wilson testified before the grand jury. Here’s why he won’t be charged.

And if he is charged, he won’t be found guilty, but I doubt it will even get that far.

Shaun King is an author, humanitarian, and motivator behind 100 Life Goals, and yesterday he spelled out how the response following Michael Brown's murder has been a coverup from the start, and everyone from the police force to the Governor of Missouri is implicated.  If you aren't upset yet, you will be by the time you finish.

     Watch this video.

The Cosby Show:  Rudy & Vanessa’s March

Starting at 10 seconds, the Cosby Show laid down the hottest track ever broadcast in prime time.  I’ve been looking for this “song” for most of my life and I’ve come to the conclusion that it must have just been written for the show.  When I finally make my long-awaited Grammy-winning debut album, some version of this track will be on it with Tamar Braxton giving me some sweet riffs to replace that soprano sax.

I’m not exaggerating.  This really is my favorite piece of TV music ever and I really do want to make a full song out of it.

     Where are the protests for trans women of color murdered this summer?

Michael Brown.  John Crawford.  Eric Garner.

America knows these names because, thankfully, the media hasn’t let us forget them.  These are young Black men murdered this summer because this country has a problem with race, prejudice, bias, and an assumption of guilt in respect to people of color.

Mia Henderson.  Alejandra Leos.  Tiffany Edwards.

We don’t know these names because the media isn’t paying attention.  These are young trans women of color who’ve also been murdered this summer, but we’re not talking about them.  No one is advocating for the six trans women of color murdered this summer. There are no panel discussions on cable news or articles devoted to investigating their innocence and disproving any basis for a justifiable homicide because trans women — especially trans women of color — are always guilty.  They’re guilty because they dare to exist and their stories don’t make for gripping headlines in a country reluctant to even acknowledge their existence.
