#OccupyICELA, ICE, Personal Shit

Help Geo get back to El Salvador!

If Geo wanted to turn himself in to ICE, he could technically go back “all expenses paid!” But we don’t want him to go through the pain, humiliation, and danger of being another piece of flotsam churning through the ICE-y stream. No matter where you stand politically, I don’t think you want that, either.

If you don’t watch this video of my band playing “I’m So Bored with the U.S.A.” then clearly you hate me and you’re SCUM and I don’t want to know you.

Happy Interdependence Day, everybody! This is a cover of the Clash by the Children of Jack Acid.

I’m in the Fringe Cabaret fashion show tonight.

I’m doing the music/sound effects/space-folk vibes for a very psychedelic, lightly theatrical variety show this month. And tonight there’s an event featuring taste tests from all the plays and productions involved in the larger Hollywood Fringe Festival that our production is a part of. There will be zombies and models and feathers and possibly even […]

how would I deal with a fanatical SJW?

I’d be like “I’m so sick of your loud cries based on the love of your fellow humans! When will you just accept that we should all value your opinions, based as they are on facts and fairness?!?”

you know who I’d really like to have sex with?

Noddy. A young Noddy Holder from Slade. He could just loosen his braces, slip the plaids down a bit, make me “feel the noise,” then hoist things back up and just go right back to rockin’. It’s all good by me. I’m going to bet good money that when he pulls down his britches, batches […]

“How do I know if I am truly bisexual or just experimenting?”

I want to start my answer to this question on Quora by making a confession. I’ve been an out bisexual for years, have had relationships with men and women and non-binary people publicly and sexually, and am even a bisexual activist who made a video in the #StillBisexual video series. Given how gung-ho I am about digging […]

What are ten interesting facts about me?

I was 12 years old, on top of that big wall with Mao’s portrait on it, and me and my folks were waiting there to see Gorbachev’s motorcade drive by. He never made it, and then the guards kicked us off the wall when things started to get crowded in the square.

I’m a conservative.

Back in the 1970s, people loved hunting and shooting at targets just as much as they do now. But no one needed to have a slew of semi-automatic weapons, and no one thought that sensible gun regulations would ever endanger their right to own a gun, because it never has.

Bisexuality, Personal Shit

bisexuality ain’t on no scale

I’ll tell you one thing friends… you know that whole “sexuality is on a scale” argument, with one side being straight and one side being gay and many people falling somewhere between those two poles? Well, actually being bisexual, pansexual, polysexual, sexually fluid, or any of the other terms under that umbrella kind of makes […]

what does “bisexual” mean to me?

A lot of prejudiced people think that ALL bisexuals are amoral, perverted, slutty people who want to “have it all” and won’t commit to anyone or anything. And to those people I say: We’re not all like that! … I mean, I totally am. But I’m only slutty, perverted, and amoral in situations that start with […]

my response to all the Nazis on yet another Noam Chomsky YouTube video

We’re no longer merely fighting against systemic racism (though that’s still the most chronic and harmful of racism’s manifestations). We’re fighting against racist ideology itself, against the very idea that people are equal.

the short voiceless “th” sound in the word “thinkrel”

The mass exportation of coffee and coffee substitutes throughout the Mediterranean replaced many local dialects with “Lingua Sanka.” You could say these languages “died in an instant,” though of course many more were brewing.

“I’m not a criminal. I’m a good person.”

Incarceration often becomes our litmus test. It’s the dividing line between us, the generally “good” people, and them, the people who did bad things so often that they finally got the punishment they deserve. The danger with this methodology, though, is that staying out of jail is a lot more about luck than skill, about not being at the wrong place at the wrong time.
