I write songs and other things/try to understand tumblr.

Always! Mostly THE BODIES exhibit. I had to go for a class I was taking in college and it really freaked me out and is the exhibit I’m talking about. It’s also just an extended metaphor for loving somebody who is very sad and emotionally unavailable or distant because of that. I had a perspective shift and started writing a lot about similar dynamics from the other perspective (from the distant perspective) after this, but those songs haven’t come out yet

all of my tumblr drafts are just weakerthans lyrics I never posted

Chris and Hallie’s first dance to @mirahmusic’s “Sweepstakes Prize” was legitimately one of the sweetest things I have ever witnessed. #hallieandchris

Open letter to Recess Records and Asian Man Records regarding The Queers and Screeching Weasel

Forget the Ice Bucket Challenge. I challenge two labels, Recess Records and Asian Man Records to completely disassociate with sexist, racist, and homophobic punk bands like The Queers and Screeching Weasel. It is ridiculous that anyone legitimate…

Just one more reason to love Joe S. and Don Giovanni. I know the term “ally” can be loaded for some people. For me, it’s not a static term (meaning, it’s not something that you can say you are and be done with it), and a big part of it means continually calling out bullshit like this when you see it. So, I really appreciate this label consistently being outspoken. Also, side note: can we talk about why a bunch of straight dudes naming their band “The Queers”  was ever okay in any capacity? Anybody who says that the reason that s/w/c male fronted bands inundate most music genres (yes, including counter-cultural genres like “punk”) is because queers and people of color and women are “not as talented” - here’s your evidence that you’re wrong: this shit was never meant to be accessible to anybody else.  I will never have time for punk men looking to perpetuate the same old boys club with different haircuts.

Thank YOU :)… Actually, I am playing this band show next week in NYC. We got added to the bill last minute, playin’ as an electric three piece, blahblah
