To be a better writer…. just write.
Koller’s isolated drum track from You Fail Me. So heavy, so rad.
A few lines from Howl.
this is on a whole new level of patience

Cool anxiety-procrastination-depression spiral Friday. Very cool.

Get back from morning exercise and the cat is all up on the table trying to nuzzle my face. Not so eager after getting her head soaked with human sweat. Now who is the trickster?
Close to 200 state and local police departments in the United States have been suspended for losing military-level equipment transferred to them by the Pentagon, a new investigation found.
According to the media outlet Fusion, its independent investigation into the Pentagon’s “1033 program,” which equips state and local police departments across the US with excess military equipment, turned up an alarming trend: Not only did many law enforcement agencies fail to comply with the program’s guidelines, they routinely lost dangerous weaponry.
Already, the investigation has found that police departments in Arizona, California, Mississippi, Missouri, Georgia, and others have lost or cannot account for various types of weapons. This list includes M14 and M16 assault rifles, .45-caliber pistols, shotguns, and even vehicles.
"they routinely lost dangerous weaponry"
that is very fucking alarming, who the hell are they being lost to? the same white supremacists bastards killing every one??
How much do you wanna bet they “lo$t them” to white supremacist friends and groups?
Why the fuck were they given them in the first place?
To profit the greedy white supremacist weapons manufacturers.
Im sure those weapons end up on the street as well
Some have probably been sold, but given our standard for keeping nuclear weapons safe, misplacing a lot of deadly weapons is pretty much par for the course .
If my time on this earth has taught me anything, it’s that as tantalizing as a good conspiracy is, most of them time when shit goes wrong it’s pure idiocy and negligence. I’m sure Occam would be super stoked.
Further to the stereo thing, also not sure I could appreciate a high-end set up. After too many years of loud concerts my hearing is about as robust as my liver.
Stuck between an age old quandary of mine regarding home stereo. I’ve always wanted to have an audiophile quality set up in some room where I can just disappear and listen to music and watch the tubes glow. I of course lack the cash (and room) to make that a reality. And then I think about it more and realize that I’ve never met anyone with that much stereo and thought “wow, I really appreciate the effort that went into this. This guy definitely doesn’t suck.” Stereo equip for better or worse seems to really ride that line between the aesthete and the crass consumer.
This recent recurrence also coincides with watching Only Lovers Left Alive this weekend and my desire to disappear into a rabbit hole of minutia. Or art. Or an ubran wasteland.
