Seriously…

…notes in the margins are the worst, like you can’t read without writing out your really deep thoughts? (what’s so amazing about…) But if you must, keep that shit to yourself. Like I can’t even imagine being so into someone that they could steal one of my books and write all over it and me being into that, like omg start a tumblr, Jess.


NO RORY, NO. HE STOLE YOUR BOOK AND DREW ALL HIS DUMB COMMENTS IN THE MARGINS WITHOUT YOUR PERMISSION. THAT IS NOT OK. WHO WANTS TO KNOW JESS’S IDIOT THOUGHTS ABOUT BEAT POETRY ANYWAY THEY WOULD LITERALLY BE THE WORST. I MEAN I KNOW YOU’RE WITH FLOPPY-HAIRED CLEANED-UP CAVEMAN DEAN RIGHT NOW, BUT BOYS CAN PROVE THEY’VE READ A BOOK WITHOUT VANDALIZING YOURS OH MY GOD

uggggh seriously the worst taste in men.


Saw this posted context-free on Facebook, but with a bit of investigating, I’ve determined it to be from the 2013 anime Free! Question is, then, am I going to watch twelve episodes of Japanese high school swim team boy drama just for the accurate and carefully realized scenes of Sydney that apparently show up at some point?

(Anyone can do the harbour; more impressive is Central station and the interior of the train.)

Libertarian fantasy nerd-currency? Cool!

Self-determination for a centuries-old nation? Now slow down there.

For some reason, a dog is trying to be friends with me why is this happening.

Dan Humphrey titles all of his short stories with the date of the real life event those stories are based on.

Can’t wait to read the one about Courtney from Hooters on Peachtree.


Most artists take their invitation to DJ for Boiler Room very seriously. Then there is Grimes. The Boiler Room hit Ibiza today for a party at influential electronic artist/DJ Richie Hawtin’s house, and Grimes was present to provide music for an hour. Instead of digging for some deep cuts and giving the people what they want, Grimes took a very different route.

Her set included Taylor Swift, Daddy Yankee, Venga Boys, and, of course, Mariah Carey’s “All I Want For Christmas is You.” She played the music off of her iPod.

All those are fucking bangers how is that not taking it seriously

The Offspring - “Pretty Fly (For A White Guy)” (#813, 1 week,. under discussion here: http://freakytrigger.co.uk/popular/2014/09/the-offspring-pretty-fly-for-a-white-guy/ )

A Popular entry that goes to a few different places, sniffing around the margins of a harmless record that I’ve never quite got on with.

This is a good one!

One of the hundreds of lies people tell about gender is the one about how boys fight and girls scheme. Boys are aggressive to other boys, girls are cruel to other girls. As well as subtly building up the cultural idea that girls are untrustworthy (and boys simple-hearted creatures of physical impulse) this overlooks the immense capacity for cruelty of the teenage boy, the unspoken, ever-shifting hierarchies of authenticity and acceptability that boys so viciously and joyfully police. Boyish cruelty isn’t even ignored – it’s normalised, even praised, enshrined not as bitchiness but “banter”, harmless jockeying for status.

Am I suggesting that “Pretty Fly (For A White Guy)”, that jolly pop-punk novelty, is some kind of bullies’ anthem? Not a bit of it. I’m just saying that it reminds me of being a boy, and part of being a boy was meanness, inflicted and weathered. And it is a mean song. Funny-mean, not horrible-mean, but mean even so. Who it’s being mean to, in the British context, is another matter.

You should follow Tom’s train of thought further.


Outside, a sea of big black cameras and upraised iPhones are aimed at the door that she’s about to walk through. After a glance through the windows she wraps her arms around me in a very deliberate hug goodbye. Then she looks me in the eye and says, in a low voice: “Are you ready for a photoshoot? Take my hand.”

More and more, Taylor Swift profiles are starting to sound like the beginnings of lesbian heist movies.
