Everyone Everywhere- Big Hat
The sun should be coming up soon.
This everyone everywhere band not only writes musically wonderful songs, but their lyrics are among the most universally relatable hymns I’ve heard in rock music in a long time. I don’t use that word lightly, these songs are all ‘hymns’ not in the sense of in relation to a god -but more importantly- our often forgotten mysterious 3D physical reality itself.
EE would probably be like, “man, we just play whatever the heck comes out,” but as far as my listening perception goes, it brings me into a mental space that only things like long nature expeditions and hallucinogenic drugs have led me to. I don’t condone the use of drugs, because any ‘breakthrough, realization’ what-have-you is perfectly obtainable naturally through deep thought and observation. I guess it makes sense that these guys recorded their first “music video” fittingly wearing lab-coats.
I find it quite incredible that these dudes speak to these themes with ease throughout an entire LP using rather simple language. I can’t quite remember feeling this way towards any other music I have ever listened to besides a select few old/odd classics. It surprises me that a band with no pretensions and an ability to convey such universal feelings isn’t more popular. Popularity doesn’t make a band better or worse obviously. I think a band’s ability to relate to a wide range of people, however, really speaks to a band’s ability to create music.
Their latest LP also perfectly addresses the nature of the world in 2012 in which everyone genuinely contemplated the end of the world at least once. Check this album out if you want to hear something rockin’, poppy, and thoughtful. Their band-name is definitely a lot more fitting than its ever been.
The sun’s up.
Another Saturday Night (Cat Stevens cover)
The dog was named Parrot.
This was taken moments before Parrot was murdered by the cop. The cop drove his knee into the middle of Parrot’s back while stretching Parrot’s forelegs behind him, as one would do with an armed criminal. Without waiting to determine whether this technique would calm Parrot, the cop grabbed Parrot, lifted him off the ground, and brought him to the top of the concrete staircase.
He threw Parrot over the banister, down twelve steps, and onto the concrete floor. Then, the cop stood at the top of the stairs, drew his weapon, and executed Parrot. Aaron, the animal’s owner, cannot recall the number of shots fired. Witnesses state that Parrot was not harming anybody and was simply frightened by the cop. At no time did Parrot try to bite the officer, all he did was start barking.
It doesn’t matter if you are a part of an Occupy movement, PETA, Republican, Democrat, Independent Religious or not, if you are a part of the human race this should be a wake up call that something is very wrong with our society.

That’s fucking disgusting
petition wont do shit—not trying to be a cynic, but the best way to regulate a fucking piece of shit pig is to issue a formal complaint with the specific fucking piece of shit police department. honestly though, it’s pretty common for departments to be reluctant to even give them out without giving you a hard time first.
i doubt this will be reblogged, but if this bothers you tons, the killer is Officer Fike and he’s from the Washington D.C. Metropolitan Police Department. Issue complaint at the following link:
some guy in my town tazed a mentally challenged dude in a gas station a couple years ago for no reason. he’s still on the streets like the fucking criminal. this dog killer deserves a hard knee against his spine and a good throw off a staircase.
asssica asked: hey could you give me directions to the nearest walgreens? thanks god bless
sure, just get on your dirtbike and go through that field past the circle k. You should swing by and kiss me in the fort i made out there. then I’ll hop on the back of the bike and we can get some big flats and some nail paint stuff for me to paint your nails. god bless too!
i just gave myself a buzz cut along the sides aand top of my head, and im going to start listening to jazz only.
This is a really kick ass BTS song that will probably show up on their new album. These dudes basically just put together a huge music festival in Boise with a huge amount of acts including Oakland/Cincinasty’s Why? I hope they do it again next year.
They played all three nights, first playing their first LP in full Ultimate Alternative Wavers which features one song thats like 9-10 minutes that they had to relearn. That album came out 20 years ago. The 2nd night was a normal set, and the 3rd night was a cover set including covers of Neil Young, Bob Dylan, The Smiths, but I’m most excited to find their versions of Here by Pavement and the amazing Sludgefeast by Dinosaur Jr. I’ll post em’ once they show up online. Here is by far one of my favorite songs to sing and play on guitar.
Anonymous asked: You sound perfect
thanks m’am, that’s very kind of you. My lass is a very happy girl.
Anonymous asked: What do you look like?
I’m tall, my face is often covered in dirt from working long shifts at the docks. I smoke luckies, so if you ever smell a pungent tobacco smell any at the bar, just look to the right, I’ll be there.
The Unpredictable Landlord
bedhead, ‘the unpredictable landlord’
this makes me feel like a fluffy white cloud being pushed along by the wind.
PLEASE READ, AND PLEASE SIGNAL BOOST.
16 year-old Isabella Castillo has been reported missing in the Vancouver, Wash. area and may have been kidnapped by a sex trafficking ring. If you see her, call 911 and report that you have found a missing child.
One of her friends has a reputation in the sex trafficking industry in the local area as the person they use to recruit new members. Isabella went missing on Tuesday, March 26. PLEASE HELP! Although I haven’t really seen Isabella since middle school, since she moved, this is still hitting hard in our community and her family wants her back. They know they won’t ever see her again if it doesn’t happen soon. Please, I know how powerful tumblr can be guys! Thank you.
from Tomorrow’s Hope Sex Trafficking Intervention Ministry
This is Isabella Castillo. She went missing March 25 pm from “The Heights” area of Vancouver, WA. We have reason to believe that she has had contact with human traffickers. She may be with a white girl in her late teens that name Kaia. Isabella is 16 yrs old, 5ft, 4in weighing 105 lbs, of Hispanic ethnicity. THIS GIRL IS AT GREAT RISK! Please, pray and be on an actively look out for her, she could be in Portland or other surrounding suburbs or even out of the region by now. If you see her, call 911 and tell them you have spotted a missing girl. You can also call Vancouver Police Detectives division at 360-487-7400.
spread this if youre in the WA area or around Portland. Sex trafficking should really be moved up on police’s priority list in coastal areas of America. The Seattle area is potentially one of the biggest locations for this criminal activity.
16 years ago, i would be in a church going over the stations of the cross over and over again.
WHY? - “Good Friday”
jerking off in an art museum john till my dick hurts
the kind of shit i won’t admit to my head shrinker
not even in a whisper to my own little sister
i just act like a dick and talk shit when i’m with her
aught six i’ll say the friday before easter
was not good i cried to myself in the pisser
and with you in the front row at the silver jews show
and you act like you didn’t notice, my fear of the bear
at showbiz pizza when i was six was overwhelming and not dissimilar to this
