An elegant meal for one, tonight.
WILLOW - the main artery to and from my home to friend’s houses, school, the gas station, Victor’s, the gym, the mini mall, the Wildcats track, fucken… Kmart! Haha
Follow the homie Feelth (source of this photo). He’s a stand up dude from my old stomping grounds in the “West Valley Puente” area in SoCal.
This Copper Gone vinyl from Strange Famous is one of the most beautiful color-vinyl pressings I have ever seen.
The color blend is soft in places, harsh in others, and its translucent nature gives it even more dimension when observed against a backlight…
Thinking about it, this description is weirdly fitting for the album too.
I woke up this morning, and I kept thinking about how I was now a potential candidate for the 27 Club. It has been about 15 hours since I had that thought, and I am still laughing at the absurdity and decadence my mind reached for with that simple idea. I laugh at the fact that, for a second, I was enough of an asshole to put myself on the same level as Janis Joplin, Robert Johnson, Ron “Pigpen” McKernan, Amy Winehouse, Kurt Cobain, and D. Boon. I mean, realistically, despite its members, this isn’t such a great club to be a part of anyway. That, and, well, my band teacher in middle school, my piano professor in college, and my family within earshot of me in the shower will tell you: I have not one goddamn musical bone in my body.
So what am I getting at with all this? Well, I have one more out-of-context example before I tear down this half ego trip, half humblebrag that’s developing…
Food Network editors can make a TV spot with Andrew Zimmern having an extended foodgasm over connected clips of him gorging himself silly on mountains of food in different locations without much respect to the local culture, but we can’t have tasteful nudity in mainstream media.
Both are separate and unrelated, I know, but one is a gross misrepresentation of our species’ nutritional needs and the other occurs naturally and without the pretense of justifying an exaggerated and unsustainable lifestyle… yet, one is allowed without a second thought and the other is shamed and taboo.
