The Coathangers - Sicker
Anonymous said: Yo, a friend of mine told some white girl wearing a fake war bonnet and fake war paint that her shit was offensive and racist. The white girl's response was to cry and say that she couldn't possibly have fun anymore. How fresh is that?
Seriously, how fucking racist do you have to be for that to be the only way you can have fun?
YOU DEMANDED IT! Check out the full-length official trailer for Dear White People before it hits theaters this weekend.
Its okay because I haven’t reblogged an Emma photo in a while.
An inner monologue while cruising “Tinder”:
"Oh she looks cute"
*Scrolls through pictures*
"She IS cute!”
*looks at her “about” section, reads first four words*
“I don’t like cheese”

Despite my very eclectic taste in music, I tend to take a while to “discover” new music. However, when I do find “new” music (quotations marks because the artist is new to me, even though their careers may not be), I listen the shit out of their album - the whole thing all the way through, nearly everyday. Recently, I’ve been listening to artists that are pretty current (as in they’re still actively touring, etc.), which is cool because I’ve finally been able to seek out shows to go to. Anyway, so far these are three of my favorite 2014 releases thus far:
- Nikki Lane - All or Nothin’: I used to HATE country… I mean hate to the point that if I even heard the slightest hint of a pedal steel, I’d object. As I’ve grown older, I’ve been able to appreciate the genre and realize that the country music I really don’t like is the whole “bro-country” that has dominated the mainstream for the past couple of years. The thing is that I do like classic country… Growing up I listened to a lot of Tiger Army and psychobilly artists that were heavily influenced by “classic” country. Anyway, Nikki Lane is right up my alley - “renegade” country in the same vein as Wanda Jackson and Loretta Lynn. I just picked up her last album, All or Nothing, produced by Dan Auerbach of the Black Keys. All or Nothing is the first country album I’ve ever bought in my life, and I’m loving it. Probably will never get into mainstream country though… just not my scene.
- Tacocat - NVM: Happened upon this band while surfing the Hardly Art website… I’m already a huge fan of Shannon and the Clams and I’m sure I’ve annoyed everybody with my fandom of La Luz. If you dig the whole “garage” aesthetic, you’ll love Tacocat… badass four-on-the-floor power pop; definitely a throwback to The Go Go’s, but doing their own thing with a sense of humor… Their album NVM is definitely worth checking out.
- OFF! - Wasted Years: Their album Wasted Years released this year and I’ve been playing it non stop. First Four EP’s was definitely my favorite, but this one did not disappoint. For those of you who don’t know, OFF! is fronted by Keith Morris of Black Flag and the Circle Jerks. I love OFF! because they’re a basically picking up right where Black Flag’s First Four Years left off - fast, fist-in-your-face hardcore punk rock.
Anyway there they are… I highly doubt anybody who “follows” me on Tumblr are into these bands. You’ll notice a lack of hip-hop and R&B and that’s just because nothing has really caught my ear recently. Any suggestions? Let me know!
