You have no recent activity.– What the FB don’t know can’t hurt it.
darkwingdach: I like “Constructive Summer” and “Stay Positive” a good deal. “Magazines” and “Joke About Jamaica” are growing on me. It’s not the album the last two are, but it’s not not good (imo). Let’s talk about this IRL.
While We're Talking Hold Steady
Their new album is not good. Which is too bad, but offers reason to start a band, then write a song called “I Wish I Never Met You,” about The Hold Steady. The title of the album could be The Hold Steady Can Go Fuck Themselves, and sample lyrics can include, “I can’t believe that you were worried about hurting me,” and “You had stars in your eyes, but your band...
The Hold Steady. "Girls Like Status." →
Denotater. This is so obvious, but whatever! I listen to both these songs in an alternating sequence and it’s because of the “song number three” line. Which I guess, in a very much dumber sense, is like watching O Brother, Where Art Thou?, then reading the Odyssey. (Then, if you really want to get mindfucked, reading Ulysses, then going on vacation. I’m going to do a couple...
Mountain Goats. "This Year." →
When “I’m not stupid” becomes a mantra, it’s time for a man to vacation.

keyholez: fiatluxemburg: keyholez: The forest takes back the heartland. The coasts prevail. Then the floods come. But by then, we’re already on Mars. But what does this imply for the outquisition? Not to mention “the built environment.” We are supposed to aspire to a condition in which imagination does the transformative work that has heretofore been done by crisis. The outquisition is a...
leoncrawl: Re: the phrase “Loose Lips Sink Ships,” which is referenced in this Wikipedia article. Meaning Unguarded talk may give useful information to the enemy. Origin This phrase was coined as a slogan during WWII as part of the US Office of War Information’s attempt to limit the possibility of people inadvertently giving useful information to enemy spies. The slogan was actually ‘Loose...
As it turns out, “can’t blog” has very quickly become “doesn’t blog.”
I think we’d best get out of this game.– Lifter Puller. “Lonely in a Limousine.”
Bon Plants Voyage!
Today I have bought a three-way ticket from New York, N.Y., to Oakland, Calif., and then from Oakland, Calif., to Washington, DC. My journey will take me to at least three U.S. locations, and one leg of the trip will probably take place in a rented car and involve Interstate 95. I will conduct several types of searches while I’m gone. I will be leaving behind for the duration of my voyage...

me: can you fw?
lux: yeah i guess but i feel bad about doing that for some reason so don't show anyone who doesn't have a tumblr, OK?
…hated on so much the Passion of Christ need a sequel…– New song by The Game ft. Lil Wayne. Mainly incredible. At first I was sad that Lil’ Wayne didn’t have a verse but actually it’s kinda funny, he’s just doing autotune choruses now like it’s his thing, like he is particularly good at it. I mean, he’s not bad at it, but he’s pretty much as bad as...
And I have to say the Atlantic article caused me to experience what I can only...– Real bloggers do real things, blogger. See also Lux and, if you can still remember how to read after all that Internet, the actual Atlantic article (albeit on the Internet).

“Looking back at the tripe that is these jumbled words, I am troubled. Good Lord, am I a jingoist? Worse yet,a true believer? Worser yet, do I still not know myself?”

Regarding the popular film
fiatluxemburg: leoncrawl: …the whole Two-Face plot upset the symmetry of the movie… Wait, how come? Also, that’s a hilarious joke.
The ‘Crawl and I are both Tumbling right now while we listen to “The Decline” by NOFX. “We’re living in united stagnation,” indeed!
Tourist: Could you give us directions to Olive Garden?
New Yorker: No, but I could give you directions to an actual Italian restaurant.

fiatluxemburg: Thinking ecologically without thinking badly requires refusing to bracket some set of things as more natural than others. That also includes ranking the “naturalness” of ideas and practices too, and that’s traditionally gone rather poorly (however, the kind of work required to make that analogy really hold up is appropriate for blogs, not tumblrs). The point is, I find myself...

(via leoncrawl) 1) Vanity is certainly one component of the Facebook experience, but it is not the only one. Communication ranks high. And Facebook is a generational thing only to the exent that it hasn’t...
Still, my brothers and sisters at The New Yorker were not guilty of the week’s...– wieseltier here (via leoncrawl) Someone remind me again what is wrong, in itself, with having a president who believes in God. First and less important, as a practical matter it’s almost an inevitability, given that many voters want a president who is religious. Second, it’s an insult...
Also, is there a way to search Tumblr or am I going to have to go back to page 23 of my dashboard every time I have an idea about something I read a month ago?
