Penguins are rad lil dudes. Does this mean you'll have a deeper connection with the 'penguin slide' scene from Fight Club? :D




Oh my god, my grammar is appalling, and I totally forgot about that scene, I NEVER understood it until now.


Brad Pitt was in love with the penguin right?

Also, I completely forgot that 1) Meatloaf had titties in this film and 2) Meatloaf Aday was in fight club.

Oh well, as they say. Meatloaf Aday keeps the doctor away


I never kind of got into Babes In Toyland, I think that it might have a bit too much of the Riot Grrrl leftover on it (which I tried to listen to but just did not get). I do quite like female fronted angsty bands.

Fun fact: A lot of filing rooms have very frequent and quite well hidden security cameras. So if someone were, hypothetically, to be dance walking their socks off to an amazing classic...alone in their whilst putting stuff away, they might get seen. This person then might hypothetically be smiled at by security for the next few weeks before being introduced as the Whitest white girl in a team meeting...I have no regrets*

* Sometimes I scream into a pillow at night when I remember embarassing things I have done.



I work with a Freya. She's stunning, has blue hair, hums a lot and her neck smells of Parma-Violets...some people just grow into their names I guess was my point there, it's not really very interesting but I felt that I had to end on something.

My lady used to get busted dancing and singing all the time when she managed a movie theater, cleaning up after a movie and singing with credit music and shit and not realizing people are still in there.  I have the bizarrely destructive/aggressive nature to lean into that shit..i'll dance in the middle of a fuckin meeting alongside a video of me dancing like an asshole to illustrate my shamelessness. Fuck em, they're gonna think what they want anyways...so dance!

Listening to some old White Zombie while I work. Those middleschool/early highschool years.

Punk and Thrash were never my thing musically, but they are more my wheel house socially...except political punks. Preachy people and zealots of any ilk aren't for me,regardless of their intentions. I think i got into female metal/alt bands just after the riot grrrl movement, when shit like L7, 7 Year Bitch, Hole, Babes in Toyland, etc were coming out. There really aren't a ton of ladies out there screaming like they don't give a fuck up anymore, which is a shame. I always dug that 'jesus christ she's damaged and gonna hurt someone' vibe. 

Some Alice in Chains-esque Swedish ladies i've seen in concert

My current musical pendulum is swinging back towards metal. I needed some time away from it. I start to get in these weird modes when it's just 24/7 death/black metal, horror movies, the fucking news and violent video games. Where it stops being cathartic and the old cloak of misanthropy is suddenly draped across my shoulders again. Like , "fuck...here again?". Hating people is easy, trying to understand these fuckers is something else entirely. People have always made me feel like an alien...the shit they choose to get upset about...or care about...i just don't get it. For a few months now it's been pretty much nothin but subpop and hiphop and i feel like my breath of fresh air has been achieved and it's now time to head back to the murky depths where i belong...for a while.

Damn Straight! Sometimes you have just got to get your funk on. If no one's watching then It's cool. Its easier to dance when there's a lot of girls around, I guess it's a social collective thing...still a little awkward and nervous when dancing with guys. The only time I am anxious about my dancing is when I have had a fair bit to drink, not about my moves (cos I dominate that floor) but having brief flashbacks of instances where my restraint has severely lapsed, They need to have a rule in places where if you're at the point when you can't spell 'Shots' they shouldn't sell them to you.

I know for certain now that the rest of my twenties is going to be spent occasionally waking up and screaming into a pillow...I'd only just gotten over screaming for stuff I did in my teens dammit!


It's rare to have a song that could put the lines "was it your breasts from the start?", "like a twat" and "you smell a bit" in a song and have them work so well...also the dancing is adorable.

Punk and Thrash is a very conflicting thing for me. A lot of the more angry (whiny) bands that are I guess better linked with the American scene either do nothing for me or (in the case of stuff like Suicidal Tendencies) make me cringe, I much prefer stuff like American Steel, Bad Religion, Face To Face, Social Distortion and Rancid. As for the political stuff in music, I guess it only bothers me if it's really angsty cringy stuff (99% of Matt Bellamys lyrics, I love the band but god damn XD) or is counter to my political leanings. The same with a lot of things, I find it hard to enjoy something by an artist/band/writer/whatever if it becomes evident that they are a massive anus. Think of that what you will.



So, so 90's. Like I can see it being played in bar scene in every 90's vampire/horror action film ever.

I've always had trouble getting into punk music or political music in general. Same with thrash oddly enough too. Partially because of the people that listened to it around me coming up, you either have shitless layabouts who just want to party and be irresponsible or you have overly serious, 'can't have fuckin fun around them because everything is a issue that needs to constantly be fought for' type of people. 

I hear what you're sayin though about learning an artist's ideology being a turn off. I have the opposite problem where i could care less about the artist as a person, i tend to separate the creator from the creation. A person is often too flawed for me to get behind based solely on the merit of their creations. Even if i feel a deep connection with the work, like 'this person really gets it', it still won't make me feel closer to them as a person. I like art just because it's a lil slice of fresh perspective and insight and sure knowing more about the creator helps one decipher the true meanings of the art but at the same time i often don't care about the message being pushed by them, i care about what it evokes in me, what meaning i find. On a somewhat related note, i feel similar about quotes/ideas, like if a real piece of shit human being said something true, it remains true, even though the person who said it is garbage. 

A child raised in a sick environment more than likely becomes a mentally sick child in some way and in turn lashes out at their environment in various manners. their art is a reflection of them dealing with that environment and often has insights about their struggles, but it is the art of the struggle you relate with more than the being that created it. I think a lot of the 'sickness' in the world stems from a fundamental lack of understanding of humans as animals first and foremost. Too many people in survive mode, focused on the animal part of their brain (feed, fuck, fight/flight, self preservation, applications of will to maintain a domain) and not enough people understanding themselves and what controls them. You only truly have control over 1 person in this life and you're gonna allow yourself to have masters? internal ones no less. ones capable of being destroyed. people cool with being led around by their compulsions are no different than animals to me, animals with iphones.
