“It’s kind of a weird recording because we made the music on a laptop and then played the music off a computer and sang along with it live. Then we like overdubbed vocals on top of that afterwards. So it’s a very weird sounding recording. That was pretty awesome. That’s probably my favorite of our really old recordings.” (via)
According to tumblr I should fill this first post with something I did today. This idea is not wholly repulsive to me, however the notion of doing something suggested by what is ostensibly a mechanism designed for the sole purpose of making really obvious suggestions is a bit of a turn-off. Instead I will fill this with things I did not do today.
Today I did not make any money, I did not commit any hate crimes, I did not eat an entire honey ham to the bone, I did not kiss anyone, I did not start a revolution nor any form of protest which might lead to a revolution. I didn’t do a lot of things today which makes the real answer to what I did today quite sad. Nothing.
I’m quite content doing nothing. It’s been my MO for the better part of a decade now and I feel as though perhaps it might be time to change that. Complacency begets apathy begets all of the terrible things taking place in the world today. If everyone cared about how fucked up things are then complacency would be replaced with righteous indignation at all of the injustices, small and large, perpetrated on this planet we call home.
Which brings me to my next point; saving the planet. How precisely are we doing this? And what precisely are we saving it from? Jesus Murphy folks, we can’t even save ourselves, how the hell are we supposed to save an entire planet home to many more complex organisms that we barely understand when we’re busy fighting over silly things like fossil fuels, religion, sexual preference, and on which side our toast is buttered (underside for life, yo).
I feel like this has been long-winded and too wordy and heavy for the first blog. I also feel like it was an appropriate introduction to the way things will be written here, sort of like Andy Rooney but lucid, intelligent, and more concise. It is what it is and it is all I wrote.
