A long, long time ago I wrote about my struggles with my little brother. Excessive cussing & mking racist, sexist and horny jokes seem to be the hallmark of male interaction. My dad swore when he was with his dude friends. My brother swears when he is with his dude friends, and sometimes, well, makes … More Is my brother a so-called “racist”or “sexist pig”?
It seems to me that every time a mainstream artist releases songs with meaningful lyrics, some self-indulgent haughty audience member or conceited layman will proceed to point out their hypocrisy. I remember when Jessie J released Price Tag, she was criticized for reeling in big bucks for her single hit as many of her fans … More If it’s about ass and titties, shut up and take my money

Yet another rant from an art student
Our culture has always been deeply consumerist, and it seems to me that we have lost the patience for, literally everything. Everything is about instant gratification. Not even one’s ideas are spared from our ravenous yet disinterested fast-food consumption. If you see a blog post that requires three or more mouse scrolls, would you still be … More I have no patience for…everything
I don’t know why–out of all holidays, Valentine’s Day annoys me the most. Every holiday is commercialized to some degree, with Christmas sitting at the apex. I guess that’s how we celebrate things these days. We consume meaning and expression by consuming commercial products. By the second week of December, I was getting sick of … More Say no to pink!
