i couldn't help but hold on to the handful of times that what was spoken was revolution in itself, and what we were doing was the only thing that mattered.....

escalators follows:
  • Closed mindedness
  • People on "My Super Sweet 16"
  • The idea of art as a commodity
  • Gel deodorant
  • Homophobia
  • When bands i like release crappy records
  • Pitchfork
  • Patriarchy
  • Infotainment (this does not mean satire)
  • The fact that cherry flavored things do not taste like cherries
  • Capitalism
  • Pompous/pretentious people
  • Dogma
  • Racism/xenophobia
  • Paying bills
  • Stadium churches with creepy statues of Jesus
  • Trendhoppers
  • People who lack empathy
  • People who are too uptight

  • Slaughter-house Five by Kurt Vonnegut (I've loved everything else I have read by him, but have never managed to read this. I don't know how)
  • Walden by Henry David Thoreau (I freaking own this. Every time I go to finish it, I somehow end up reading something else. In fact, this just happened today.)
  • War and Peace by Leo Tolstoy (I made a promise to myself to read this three years ago, and I still haven't made it past the first 20 pages.)
  • The Grapes of Wrath - John Steinbeck (This is another one I have been meaning to read for a while, and something else always comes up.)
  • Fight Club by Chuck Palahniuk (I started reading his fantastic books after seeing the movie and loving it, but just never read the book. People say it is better than the movie, and I don't want it to ruin...

  • Blink 182 - Dude Ranch (I was 13, this was the first piece of music I ever fell in love with. This started my addiction to music.)
  • NOFX - Punk in Drublic (I still remember listening to "Don't Call Me White" on repeat running around the house on a Saturday morning after having not gone to bed the night before. This was my introduction away from the mainstream.)
  • Against Me! - Reinventing Axl Rose (This is still my all time favorite. I honestly don't know how I could have made it through that year without it. No piece of music has more personal significance.)
