watching the original iphone keynote address from 2007 and steve jobs literally uses “works like magic” as a descriptor for their touch screen. it’s amazing how far the world travels in six years.

"Ignores unintented touches" never made it out of beta testing.

I’m still recovering from some random dude on Facebook saying I’m not punk rock.

Same, but it was a lady on Twitter. I quoted Jawbreaker at her, as is my normal retort when my punkness is questioned.

I am not Trayvon Martin.

I am a 36 year old white Christian male, with a white wife, and three white children. I have never been suspected of beiong somewhere I shouldn’t, of being wrong just for being, of being other. My kids won’t either. It’s up to us to make this world a place where other isn’t synonymous with danger, one ehere everyone is welcome, regardless of their skin color, choice of jacket, price tag on the house, vernacular…or any reason.

I’m also not Trayvon because Trayvon would have SPELLCHECKED.

Other than that, troof.

MEET THE NEWEST BASS PLAYER IN MY BAND. (OUR LAST BASS PLAYER HAD A NASTY BUG WHICH CAUSED HIM TO WIPE OUT THE AUDIENCE AT OUR LAST AND ONLY SHOW.) I HANDLE PERCUSSIVE DUTIES, INCLUDING DRUMS, COWBELL, AND EXPLOSIONS. IF ANY ROBOTS OUT THERE PLAY ANYTHING, PLEASE GET IN TOUCH.

When they rise up, it will be because we made them play Muse songs.

FUN FACT for the 1% and job creators: The S&P 500 (often considered a proxy for the US economy) is up NINETY-ONE percent since Obama took office. 91%. That’s a lot. It’s, um, almost 100%. If you invested $100.00 on inauguration day, it’d be worth $191.00 today. If you’d invested a million, you’d have almost two million. It’d be what anyone, Warren Buffett or Mitt Romney included, would consider an excellent investment. If I were wealthy, I would say something like “Steady as she goes, Captain” to whomever was piloting the ship. 
The above is a screenshot I took a few minutes ago from Google Finance; it’s not from any candidate’s website. The little hand shows Inauguration Day, 2009.
Feel free to share this with a friend or elderly white man. 

Word to all my elderly white man friends.

Wear some layers if you go see a show in the winter. Still gets cold at night in January in Texas. 

And wear as little as possible in the summer, because it’s hot in thurr. The Lone Star is COLD AS ICE though.

“The existence of good bad literature — the fact that one can be amused or excited or even moved by a book that one’s intellect simply refuses to take seriously — is a reminder that art is not the same thing as cerebration.” George Orwell on “good bad books.” See also: Orwell on why write.
