Most of the pics that I 'fave' are because I find them to be inspiring, or good references for my own work. I'm amazed and humbled by the talent that I can find on this site.

     I can still remember the all day Lollapalooza music festival on Randall's Island in the summer of '95.  For those of you who are unacquainted with the local geography of the boroughs of Manhattan, it is a large island below the Bronx in the East River.  Anyway, though the whole festival had some really memorable acts, from Wu Tang, Rancid, and the Ramones to the closers, Metallica, there was one act that really stood out to me.  Cornell made perhaps the best statement of the night as Soundgarden finished their set, he threw his mic up into the light riggings above (mind you this was before there was the wide use of wireless mics) where it stayed until it was fished out many many minutes later.  Who could follow that? :XD:  In a way, after his passing, he has thrown that mic up there for all time.  There were few voices as soulful and intense, or few bands whose music would ever be as compelling or moving.  Thanks for filling my adolescence with your art,  I don't know what drove you to do what you did, but thanks for what you gave us. Perhaps you always left clues in all of your lyrics...






And this song is eerie with its title, but it is my favorite Soundgarden song...

  • Listening to: Soundgarden...
  • Reading: Some book on Northern European Paganism
  • Watching: The spring bloom...
  • Playing: a fool...
  • Eating: still too much...
  • Drinking: too much...

Not exactly something I'd throw in my backpack (it weighs like 2 pounds and having one myself MAN is it massive) but look at this goddamn axe knife.

It is a beast like my bowie, but tangless and therefore more solid and reliable.  Size is a problem to a degree, and I would opt for a smaller knife and a hatchet, but that is a beast.
  BTW.  There is a youtuber, Sargon of Akkad, who is currently putting forth a petitiion www.change.org/p/universities-…  to ban or suspend Social Justice courses on Universities. Tell me your thoughts- as you are in college, and I recall you outlining your syllabus.  I have thoughts, but I will reserve them and see if you have a fresher perspective.

I took a legit gender studies course and then a social justice class.
One of them was actual academics. The other was straight up propaganda.
Social justice classes are where thought goes to die and the victimhood mentality is as strong as the polarity of us and them. Those people are every bit as goddamn ignorant as any Neonazi.

I had faith in that class last semester. It was not faith well-placed and it would do IUSB solid by not letting that professor "teach" anymore. There do exist good gender studies programs and professors but my God are they rare.
