Saw the Meat Puppets at the Doug Fir Lounge a couple weeks back. Second time seeing em, and I can safely say that the second helping of Meat is most definitely the tastiest. Very tainted in the best way.
If they come to your town, you best go party down.
Best to go party down. Yes.
There are so many people in prison who should be out — with their minds and bodies given a chance to grow straight. There are so many out of prison who more deserve to be inside. There are those who enslave men and women and little children, paying wages that will not let them live…. It is them and the system under which they live that are responsible for the unemployed who have been treated like inhuman things by our society.
I am a socialist because I believe that socialism will solve the misery of the world — give work to the man who is hungry and idle and at least give to little children the right to be born free … I believe socialism is practical.
Helen Keller (“Brutal Treatment of the Unemployed,” Sacramento Star, 16 March 1914)
I have figured out a few things (probably):
- Sexuality is fluid.
- Sexual fluidity varies in viscosity for different people.
- If you identify as something, it doesn’t matter who you’re dating/have dated/have never dated. You are who you decide you are, and nobody should be able to tell you otherwise.
- Don’t make assumptions about other people’s sexualities. I don’t care if you know a boy who has been in a three-year relationship with another boy. He might not be gay (or even a he).
- Not a lot of people have it all figured out. As I’ve shared my personal confusion, a lot of people have confided their own struggles to me as well.
- Living in a binary-obsessed society is the pits.
So go out there and make out with whomever you please. Or with no one at all. Your call.
today i went to the Meat Puppets show alone! i never ever go to shows alone (it was my first time). I had a really great time and i am proud of myself for doing something outside of my comfort zone! also the meat puppets are so fucjking cool. theyre a band of old men and they still put on a gr8 show holy shit
Glad you liked it, they are the best!
I remember a few years ago, it was actually in Oregon—I think it was Eugene—I was standing outside the club, it was a youth center or something, and there were a bunch of kids and stuff, and I heard some girl telling her friend: ‘Who’s playing?’ ‘I think it’s some Nirvana cover band.’ And I’m sure half the crowd thinks we’re doing Nirvana covers when we play those [Meat Puppets songs we did on ‘Unplugged’].
