Being punk rock is so hard it takes me like 6 minutes to get my shoes off.
Here’s my impression of a guy who sold his soul to the devil in exchange for being pretty good at the accordion: “what do you mean worlds best blues guitarist?”
I was just talking to a speech pathology student and I fucked up saying “speech pathology” like four times. That is the worst thing to have trouble pronouncing. At that point I just walked away to reassess the situation and my life.
I don’t want people to wear colour at my funeral but I do want everyone wearing leather jackets, watching from a distance and then riding away on motorbikes before it ends.

Girl in my class today asked me to recommend her some music (which I am going to take very seriously) and asked my friend and I about weed. I love that I look like that kind of person to be honest.
I get that South Park is satire but within it’s audience, that satire seems more like an inside joke than anything. A portion of the audience will understand what’s going on but there’s another part that will not and just take the slurs and stereotypes at face value and think “I totally agree with that stereotype”. At a certain point, doesn’t the creator have a responsibility to the reactions and opinions that their show seems to foster?
Other people may have a different perspective of this, but growing up in the area I grew up in, the people that were huge South Park fans were also the people who used physical violence and homophobic slurs against me. I’m not saying for a moment that South Park was the cause of this. I am saying however that the argument that South Park is some great thought provoking idea changing satire is just a convenient excuse.
If you and your friends inside jokes incite real life hatred, maybe you should reconsider the way you go about telling those inside jokes.
