Also I tracked down the audition tape Durst sent MTV before he was in Limp Biskit, which was a total Vanilla Ice duo called “2White” BECAUSE IT WAS TWO WHITE DUDES GET IT. And they wouldn’t let me put it in the show. Really I deserve some kind of medal or maybe a small square named after me.

MTV hired me and Sarah to make PSAs after Woodstock 99, with musicians telling people rape is bad. Fred Durst refused to participate and I called him a stupid fucking pro-rape idiot (or something like that) and we either quit or got fired I forget. Then when I worked at Pop-Up Video I had to do a Limp Biskit song AND a Staind song which was so gross. SO GROSS. He had this revolting online diary (I guess nowadays it would be called a BLOG) and I was reading it so I could write the stupid script and every morning I was like, what horror has he posted today. Once he posted something about how he wanted to address the rumors that he was going to be a father and part of his explanation was that “I humped a girl on tour.” I’m seriously ready to go kill him right now.

“I have cramps, and a houseguest, and a panel I am not prepared for, and I’m suddenly really pissed about Woodstock 99 again.”

- The question is, do I have a drink and spend all night reliving the rage, or do I actually prepare for the panel? HAHA YOU KNOW THE ANSWER.

- “is that YOUR gear?” (i’m setting it up, you dingus, why wouldn’t it be mine)

- dude starts plugging shit in for me without asking

- ‘wait up, sweetie. i know you’re carrying the gear, but girlfriends don’t get in free.’ (i’m A MEMBER OF THE BAND, ASSHOLE)

- ‘so which one of these guys is…

at matchless the sound guy touched my waist as he leaned over to adjust my amp (i had not asked him to) and i said HEY I BET YOU WOULDN’T BE DOING THAT IF I WAS A GUY! and he was wasted so he thought it was funny.

at a show a couple of weeks ago i was hanging in an outside balcony area talking to my friends at a club in stamford connecticut and the bouncer said “everyone who’s not a member of the band or fucking someone in the band has to leave.” i went OFF on that dude. he threatened to arrest me which was hilarious because he was uh, not a cop. after threatening to pee on the floor multiple times when he said i couldn’t use the bathroom and had to leave and calling him an asshole, i left. what was amazing was that he clearly did not get why i was so pissed off. in his own little weird universe, that was FUNNY. ugh. 

How is this shit still going on?? Kill these dudes.

On Pussy Riot and white feminist solidarity

On Pussy Riot and white feminist solidarity:

fuckdudeskilldudes:

suzy-x:

kvltkunt:

So the Sevigny mess didn’t work out as planned because my affinity group had prior engagements and the venue was over-policed.  I’m going to analyze what made me so mad in the first place and while it definitely won’t be as cathartic as throwing a dildo at a bourgeois transphobe’s head, perhaps it will help just a tiny bit. I’ve been doing a lot of thinking about the Pussy Riot craze—I am in total solidarity with all of Pussy Riot and Voina— namely Nadezhda Tolokonnikova, Marina Alyokhina, Yekaterina Samutsevich.  

What irks me is what my friend Cameron calls ”funmenism”, white cis women taking up a cause to soothe their bleeding liberal hearts— this behavior allows them to feel like ”activists” but also allows them to cling to the white supremacy and classism that they love so well.  Also, for those of you that do not know me, I am white and while i have begun to self-identify as genderqueer (or something like that) I have more cis and femme privilege than i know what to do with.  Just a little background.

What I mean to say is— what about cece?  What about the trans woman known only as tiffany, whose lifeless body was found on wedsnesday, only 3 blocks from where paige clay’s body was found earlier this year.   What the fuck y’all?  

If choosing a roster of only white feminists to speak about pussy riot isn’t white supremacy, I don’t know what is.  If allowing celebrities that perform at michfest and use the word tranny to speak out on an exciting, important and culturally relevant issue is not cis supremacy, i don’t know what is.

Snaps all around. Also, here’s a link to an article about Tiffany Gooden, a Chicago transwoman who was murdered 3 days ago.

yup

pretty much.

"Writers don’t write from experience, though many are resistant to admit that they don’t. I want to…"

“Writers don’t write from experience, though many are resistant to admit that they don’t. I want to be clear about this. If you wrote from experience, you’d get maybe one book, maybe three poems. Writers write from empathy.”

Nikki Giovanni (via amandaonwriting)

Hm. I have mixed feelings about how empathy functions, or how it can be manipulated, as previously discussed. Part of the solution to the empathetic crisis is disowning empathy and those who feed on it. I do think empathy makes me a better editor, especially for the kinds of things I’m editing now, because half of it is coaxing the truth out of people who have already invested the the narrative they think people want to hear. Also, there is nothing more loathsome than people who talk about how to be a good writer or writing in general, with special loathing for that Roxane Gay thing.
