Random Update

Nothing too major but I did manage to update a couple of the pages alongside adding a news/update section. Next up is to go through all posts, delete any duplicates and categorize everything. Please make sure to check out the Shin Force Interview, and my review of the new Embrace of Thorns album.

Anxiously waiting for interview responses, so I can post an interview for Embrace of Thorns and one from Austin for Gameplay and Talk.

cat calling, men are degenerate scum

Christen Brandt at 34th Street – Herald Square.

This is what I was wearing this morning as I made my way through a crowded 34th Street subway station, and a man passing by me said, “Damn, you have some great legs.” When I ignored him and kept walking, he turned around to follow me, to get closer, even as I was moving away. “Did you hear me, honey? I said you have nice legs. Damn! Thank you.”

It was the “thank you” that got me. As if my 5 inches of legging-covered skin were there for him. Given as a gift wrapped in brown tights. Existing in the world for him to appreciate, or not.

Next time you wonder whether your skirt is too short, next time you ask your teen daughter to change her clothes, or the next time you hear about school dress codes in the news, remember this photo.

I am in a fucking parka and boots.

And it. doesn’t. matter.

All women have these moments. All of us. And yet the world acts as if it’s still our problem to fix. Get your shit together, guys.

I, for one, am sick of dealing with it.

This story is so full of shit you can read right through the lies. The only people who will agree with this are impressionable and naive folks. So she decides to make this long post because she got some cat calling by a guy. And then for authenticity sake she takes a picture of herself as if to seal the deal of any doubt about the matter. If you read the story she posted, it’s pretty PG at the beginning but towards the end it gets R rated without notice, she suddenly starts using curse words to tie together a sentence. As if to extenuate because of her female body being visually violated by some passerby. But what really tipped the scale for this prudish broad, was the fact the man was offended because she didn’t say “thank you”.

But what this article is really about, has nothing to do with the women pictured or even the story, is that it’s about women being able to dress however they like, without any repercussion, because this woman has obviously proven that she is dressing in plenty enough clothes to not be sexually harassed by the terrible male populous.  There is absolutely no way of confirming whether or not this story is true or false, and really to make it unequivocal and apparent to the matter, it makes no difference.  This entire article is trying to persuade the reader into believing yet again, than men are in the wrong and women are in the right.

It’s ok ladies you can dress like sluts, because men are going to harass you either way. I mean I wore this winter attire and got cat called out.

I think the entire story is bull shit. It sounds slanted and very dishonest. 

targeting an audience or self interest?

The fact that this is public material that I post, is no doubt a benefit of accumulating some kind of an audience, whether I want to admit it or not. Yes this is no doubt for my own interest and archival purposes, but it would be nice to garner a audience who can appreciate this with me. Self righteous indignation? I honestly don’t think so. With this all being said I think this blog is far too broad and it doesn’t really have a centralized theme, and it’s hard to gain an audience when by first impression alone, I bet most people just open the site and think “what the hell is this?” and then leave.

I am still uncertain of the purpose of this blog, and am really going to do some thinking about how I can make this something enjoyable, not only for myself, but for other people. Or maybe just continue doing what I am doing, and see where things lead up to. All the same, I enjoy the idea of a blog focused around music, writing and art. Which I do suppose has been the central theme all along.
