have you ever been eating and thought “wow this will make me fat” and simultaneously thought “no one will ever love me anyway”
It affects men, too.
Careful you might fall in.
it can make you feel alone.
Today is the 10th anniversary of the invasion of Iraq. This is Mudhoney’s “Hard-on for War.”
It took me a long time to warm up to this song, which is unusual for me with Mudhoney—it has a little Pink Floyd vibe that felt off. But I have really grown to love it. That’s about the most music writing you’ll ever get from me. TEN FUCKING YEARS. It is crazy to think the teens I was working with in the anti-war movement back then are now almost 30. And horrible to think of all those murdered for American ego.
Thanks for posting, Mark.

me: i don’t know if i like zambreno’s prose style in green girl
Lk: she seems too flowery
i like no frills
me: i was going to say, ‘she writes like a girl’
Lk: hahah yes
to think that
Lk: seems normal
me: but like it feels distinctly feminine
by weird i mean bad
I like that hysterical manic prose though; I think we sometimes overvalue some Hemingway minimalist shit, some sort of masculine ideal of objectivity and detachment, where I get off on all that self-involved ranty rhyming and kind of manic alliteration and so on, the things that read nicely but sound, to be frank, a little crazy. Also odd as Green Girl (granted i read it over a year ago now I think) seemed really, really controlled to me — the book is nothing if not deliberate, and I think there’s a lot of value (both literary and emotional) in that sort of deliberately controlled & displayed mania and panic and confusion
