tonight ~*~*~*~ we’re playing this show, last one in the bay before we drive away in sharmi’s dad’s van for 3 weeks. plus there’s free HIV testing. yay
i havent been to gilman in a while, and going to gilman reminds me of times that i was just tagging along with my hardcore boyfriend (who was one of the few asians there) and his friends to hardcore shows and being one of the only non-dudes there & feeling pretty shy/out of place, so it feels good to be about to play there in this context. still a shy guy today, but giving less fucks than then.
i’m getting ready for the day working on translation/transcription projects and listening to sourpatch - so nice for this lazy post-sqfest morning
There are weeds now
where your tongue
broken beer bottles
and rusted car parts
where your hands
graffiti and paint chips
where you lips
and a tow truck
the only orgasm left
on this empty lot
omg this flier. its so bad its good.
this is the flyer for the show we’re playing in joplin, MO
PISCES (February 19-March 20): Believe me, Pisces, not every sentiment that crosses your mind this week needs to be uttered aloud. Not that any of us are thinking exactly the same thing today that we thought yesterday (or that we’re likely to think tomorrow), but you will be especially prone to a changeable perspective on a number of relevant topics… and rather than be called to task by others for your moving-target replies, I suggest you take an externally non-committal attitude while simultaneously allowing your inner considerer to juggle the different ideas. Too commonly, our self-consciousness about being unsure, ‘of two minds’, or still in the process of putting the pieces together is triggered by a sense of expectation to other people that we should have it figured out by now… and when we unfairly hold ourselves to it, we actually inhibit ourselves from experiencing the mental freedom to digest the variables at our own pace (no matter how slow it may be). In fact, it is often said that the mark of a brilliant individual is the ability to hold contrasting ideas at the same time, since the creative art of synthesis is nothing more than finding the magical solution that reduces an ‘either/or’ to ‘both’. Buy yourself that mental freedom… even if it means hanging out at home, away from other people, a bit more. (via astrobarry.com)
