Xibalba - Death Threat

I hope everyone can forgive me when my 2014 year-end list is just like, Lydia Loveless and 9 super-ignorant moshcore records.

(To be fair, this one probably won’t make the list because it’s a split EP—but still, at least for me, the year in music has been vibing very well with the year in me being way too stressed out to function properly)

"Everyone seems to be having fun; a mindless spirit of mild, polysexual eroticism prevails. Whatever Mr. McGinley’s intentions may be, the exhibition dovetails neatly with a capitalist economy that turns the right kind of bodies into visual commodities. It’s depressing."

Ryan McGinley: ‘Yearbook’ - NYTimes.com (via photographsonthebrain)

This is honestly all of my recent experiences with hipster photography summed up in three sentences.

Gringo elaboró toda una tesis sobre el Barros Jarpa

My buddy Jim, who started the Sandwich Tribunal website I occasionally contribute to a couple months ago because of a twitter conversation that raged out of control, ended up in a Chilean newspaper today after writing a blog post about a Chilean sandwich. Life is crazy, but I’m just proud to be connected to this in any way.

P.S. I need to find time to post about more sandwiches.

Black Flag's Greg Ginn Accused of Child Abuse

So who didn’t see this coming? Least surprising news ever. And people wonder why well-known abuse survivor Henry Rollins was the only Black Flag singer who ever lasted more than a year…

Apparently I’m going grey at the temples; this was always a sign of gravitas in comic books, but my multicolored hair and goth eye makeup probably ruins the effect.
