That sure sounded like an opinion!

Daughter, “Medicine (Sound Remedy remix)”

Dubstep’s influence has mostly waned in the face of moombahton and trap music these days (though I’m sure a couple of diehard dubbros would wub to prove me wrong), which I find great, as it means all the terrible derivative and slapdash remixes churned out for each and every chart-topper have now been forced onto those other subgenres.

I’m psyched cause it lets tracks like this one stand out: a seven-minute plea from one girl watching her friend choose to crumble before her eyes; a subject far removed from Skrillex’s rock and roll chant-alongs. Rather than seeing how much can be conveyed by the low-end, this takes cues from the airy, melodic synths of house, with the driving sound of the breakdowns provided by (you guessed it) 8-bit keyboarding.

I also like to pretend that during those sliced up vocals, she’s calling out “from a-a-all that ass, from a-a-all that ass.” Just to reassure you that my ear’s in the right place.

I’m a little slow on the uptake here but far from behind the times, except I’m trapped in yesterday, also what year is it, anyway this is an eclectic team and I hope Michael Cera doesn’t get punked on too hard, he’s adorable.

Soylent

Rob Rhinehart is an Atlanta native who was interviewed just last week about his new delicious smoothie, Soylent. Hitting the scene just in time to fucks with the Shamrock Shake revenue, Soylent is a creamy mixture of every nutrient you need to survive! No more food necessary! Since my tongue is white and yesterday I was hit by waves of nausea from noon on, I’m thinking about signing up as a tester!

And here’s where I felt like replying to all the recent Public Shaming tweets because the sources would never see my responses (if they haven’t deleted their profiles already) and I want to participate somehow

If you thought these unbelievable reactions to Steubenville would just peter out, I guess you can say you were pretty, pretty wrong.

Part 1.

Part 2.

And here’s part 3:

Yeah! And same to confused hikers who get shot to death by paranoid land-owners. LIL TRESPASSER. (This is a bad analogy and I’m tired. Stick around.)

Maybe if you want to be a human being, you should try getting blackout drunk. Just a thought

Kenni Shane has a lot of insider knowledge about these people (including the girl whose name has not been publicly released, much less a description of her personality, her interest in being raped or her willingness to exchange sex for money [what? if he’s allowed to define whore as “a girl I don’t like” i should be at least allowed to reference the original definition]), has anyone questioned him? Has anyone found this witness to the crime? #ArrestKenniShane

“Clowning” is a wonderful substitution for “raping.” Does it marginalize rape? No, clowns are as bad as rape.

Thank god we raised the drinking age from 18 to 21 in 1984, it cut way back on rapes. Hey whoah now we just need to raise the raping age.

image

OKAY BUT WHEN WERE THESE BOYS EVER CHARGED FOR “PLYING ASSAULT?”

image

Don’t worry dude, it’s still sexual assault to record those videos without her consent so no need to feel sick unless you for some reason begin to think about the ramifications of everything you fucking do

image

Well, I finally see a solution that I think everyone here can agree on: if women can’t be trusted to choose drinking safely (much like men cannot choose not to rape), we should ban alcohol. JUST KIDDING I bet nothing would change.

I got thrown out of a hotel bar for falling off a table. Nobody has ever held me responsible for that. So men get away with it too and that means everyone gets away with it which means nobody gets away with it which means your take on this means nothing. Thanks anecdotal evidence.

I stood on the subway tracks for fun. I got that drunk. And now I know that I should have died.

image

NO BECAUSE I DELIBERATELY CHOOSE MY FRIENDS TO MINIMIZE THEIR CLOWN TENDE— RAPIST TENDENCIES. WHAT SORT OF MISERABLE LIFE DO YOU LEAD WHEN YOU HOLD THE FEAR THAT YOUR FRIENDS WILL RAPE YOU. WHO ARE YOUR FRIENDS.

Oh wait, maybe The Cinder Cellar is a girl.

I don’t know if these responses make any sense but they at least capture my feelings maybe

Anonymous Leaks Horrifying Video of Steubenville High Schoolers Joking About Raping a Teenager ‘Deader than Trayvon Martin’

A friend shared this with another on Facebook. Since I treat Facebook like a combined comedy playground + laboratory, I tried to make a joke. Someone replied, and I got the chance to question what I’m doing even more than my anxiety over being hated usually forces me to. I imagine that my point of view is very similar to what my friends expect from me, but I feel like I came up with a couple of thoughts new to me.

Since I do all my best writing in Facebook comments, here we go:

  • Brian J K Regan oh so now we have to ruin these young men’s promising comedy careers??? when does it end
     
  • M. Q. what part of that is comedy? or are you being facetious? either way, no.
     
  • Brian J K Regan I dunno I wouldn’t be surprised to hear Leno rip “She’s raped deader than Trayvon Martin” later this week

    (M.Q.: there are people commenting on the Jezebel article that defend this video, writing that “people make objectionable jokes in close company all the time.” My point is that the monologue captured in this video isn’t even jokes, it’s just topical comparisons meant to shock, and that anyone who believes this is “shock comedy” is really overestimating the amount of thought these boys put into their words. This is, in effect, an illustration of the divide in comedy about rape jokes: unacceptable ones use rape, “acceptable” ones discuss rape. Since I like to contribute to positive discourse, in writing my comments I want to draw a connection between anyone who defends these boys’ sense of humor to the fucking rape apologists who bemoan the rapists’ futures— hopefully anyone who would read it would see that.

    But you didn’t. So I’ve failed, not you. And maybe this apologetic analysis/follow-up joke can make up for it or clarify for anyone else. I would hope that Olivia isn’t FB friends with anyone who would be illuminated by my joke in the first place; either way, I approach serious topics this way because it’s good practice for my future, more fun/less sad for me than rehashing all the real articles I read on these topics, and a way to reach people whose eyes would gloss over at any two paragraph long comment like this one.

    If anything about my approach still makes you uncomfortable, _please_ continue the discussion.)
