“Most people think that “real art” is for rich people or it’s something you see in museums, not something that they can live with. They don’t have any kind of relationship with art. So there’s an inherent distance, a chasm, in fact, between them and what they see in museums. So I think that if everyone knows what it’s like to live with art, it offers the opportunity to transform their relationship with what they see in institutions.”—Jen Bekman, founder of 20x200, where, ahem, you can buy my art (via austinkleon) (via wearethedigitalkids) (via theonlymagicleftisart)
If you love Circa Survive, you should buy their album instead of trying to get someone to give you a download link. I hate people on the internet so bad. You can’t claim that you love the band and then steal the album they’ve been working on for almost 2 years.
Get a fucking job if you can’t afford it, or save up. Also a bonus fuck you to the people who link these assholes to a download. You’re all the reason so many great bands are having financial problems.
The canonical list of inside jokes that won't be fun for anyone unless you're Weenie (pt 1)
Some, but not all. It would be too long to post all. Expect installments, and in no particular order. Part of the sum of ten years I wouldn’t ever take back for anything. The times we’ve laughed have far outweighed the times we’ve cried, let’s not forget.
"I’m not a bitch or anything, I’m just not big on smalltalk.” “Oh yeah totally, me either, I mean why talk when you don’t have anything to say…”
Being terrepalists. Terrepaleptic fits and Thanking Day. $40 worth of cheese consumed in a single weekend. “On Thanking Day, you can do whatever you want.” And we did. Dating a girl just long enough to get her to take you to the grocery store and then dumping her on the porch. Cantaloupe juice is like being kicked in the face. Grape juice makes your teeth feel furry. Bob.
Throwing up Midori and Chinese food on my carpet on New Year’s Eve. “I chipped mah tooth, I blame it on Bef.” “Don’t break me, BJ, I love you.” I made you gargle with Scope and then I called Leslie. We had to get new carpeting in the living room but not new jobs. Round 2. Jello shots are a bad idea. Jello shot wrestling. Getting slapped with ice cube trays and the mop. Calling Jamie a whore while passed out dead drunk. 99-anything is too much. You guys tried to steal the baby Jesus.
My ears are crying! Belting out Sugar Daddy at the tops of our lungs. Belting out everything at the tops of our lungs. Living life with the windows down and the music up.
Vince. Learning to shoplift. Pissing off Porkchop while “liberating” the contents of Game Stop. Receiving weird Bath and Body make-up. Returning the same pair of stolen Etnies sandals 5 times one summer. “Excellllent." Smarch. Twin Towers. Grey Goose. Mook. Mook tagging the Grafitti Busters van. "IT’S FUCKING WATER!" Hammer of Justice. The Misfits show. Taking Back Sunday and My Chemical Romance before TBS and MCR were ~cool. "You’re an omelet." Being ~freegan. Listening to him tell us never to touch heroin before going to shoot up in the bathroom. Vince’s funeral, which isn’t a good memory but it’s the end of the story, I guess. Buried in the Sean John sweatsuit his parents didn’t know was bought with a stolen credit card. Having to call the cops on him. "It’s just crack."
“You know the one, that actress… she was in that movie where she was raped by all those guys on a pool table…”—Sarah’s coworker, trying to compliment her by saying that she looks like Jodie Foster, without knowing Jodie Foster’s name.
“It also got me thinking again about the trope that most bisexuals will eventually “choose one” by settling down in a monogamous relationship with a person who, presumably, has a gender. And while this is not necessarily true… I’m frustrated by the way people react to it when it is true. Bisexuals who settle down with either a man or a woman are not finally choosing a side, admitting to being either straight or gay. This seems so obvious to me, yet seems to escape most people. Choosing monogamy is just that — choosing monogamy. That’s all.”— Bi-Furious! (via sexisnottheenemy) (via themegs)
If there was, he would have smited America to shit by now for our sins against the world. Fuck this shithole. I’m moving to Canada. They may be sort of lame sometimes, but at least they aren’t crazy murderers.
