Titus. Ohhhh Titus. I haven't heard it yet, and my pants are constantly damp from anticipation.

I believe that Unrepentant would be proper. And a better title in general.

Back in civilization today after a two day paddle. Decided to put this on instead of that Wavves thing on the way home. Terrific choice. Perfect atmosphere for feeling hot and worn out and fried. Also puts my difficulties with ratchet straps into perspective.

Shit. I don't have a way of listening to this for a few days other than on my crappy phone speaker. Anyone want to bring me a better sound system. I'm out on the Puget Sound in an orange kayak (wearing a lifejacket, natch). Shouldn't be hard to miss. Thanks.

I think I misquoted that. "SHE SAID, 'YOU'RE PRETTY GOOD...'" Take away my Staying Postive card.

I realize now that it actually makes a lot of sense. Craig Finn takes words seriously. "He said 'I'm pretty good with words, but words won't save your life.' And they didn't so he died." Maybe John Berryman wasn't so good with Greek words.

Well, you've got me 2 for 3. I hate Dave Matthews, love Deafheaven, but I'm not that into High On Fire. Doesn't do it for me. I read your rant recently about how they're the benchmark for doom, and I thought "Well, I love Yob, I should give them another chance." So I did. And then went back to listen to Yob instead. Commence the shit I know you're so eager to sling.

The real question is, how much money would you pay to have gyros with Craig Finn?

Also, I like the smell of patchouli.

I told you! Just this week, I said that telling Southerners that the Confederate Flag stands for racism is like telling Dave Matthews fans that his music is just awful. It's a non-starter. Listen to Scruffy more. I'm wise beyond my years.

I just wanted to flit in and let you know that Scruffy is thoroughly in ghost mode for the summer. When I'm not out paddling, I'm working, and when I'm not doing either of those things I'm drinking or passed out (wearing my lifejacket, RJ!). I do occasionally check in on SG, but I mostly lurk and only occasionally make my presence known. Of course, it's a little late to post here, so I doubt anyone will see it, but whatever. I still love y'all! OooOOOOoooooo

I'm definitely not defending these views or the teachers. There needs to be a systemic change in the way we educate and learn about the past. Interestingly enough, here in Washington State they don't do any better. The Civil War barely gets touched at all, and they teach that Southerners were generally evil slaveowners when they do. All while ignoring the way that Seattle and Tacoma treated Asian immigrants. It's all a mess.

June 24, 2015 on Killer Mike Shares Op-Ed On Confederate Flag Debate
As we look at the flags and think of all this stuff, I think it's important for non-Southerners to know what us Southerners are taught about the civil war, slavery, and the Confederate flag. I was taught all of these things (in multiple years by multiple teachers, it wasn't just one wack-job) in North Carolina public schools in the 90s and early 2000s: 1) The Civil War was about state's rights, not slavery. Yes, slavery was one of those rights, but most Southerners did not own slaves or believe in slavery. Most Southerners fought for the South to defend their homeland from the invading North, who was infringing upon their rights and culture. 2) The Confederate Flag that we know today was not the true flag of the Confederate States of America, but rather Robert E. Lee's personal battle flag. Robert E. Lee was against slavery. Therefore, the flag cannot signify hate, racism, or a desire to continue slavery. 3) Martin Luther King and most other civil rights leaders were communists, and therefore we cannot trust everything they say. This is all bullshit, but it's taught as fact, and many (non-racist people) believe it, especially 1) and 2). Telling Southerners that the flag represents racism is like telling Dave Matthews fans that the music sucks. They don't believe it, and won't listen to you. I appreciate that Killer Mike takes the middle/high road here. He understands that the flag means something other than racism to many Southerners, but also that it is an inappropriate flag to fly outside government buildings.

I don't know. Sometimes I forget that it's not available, which means that I'm not always making a conscious effort to not listen, it just kind of happens in the background. That being said, why switch to a different service to not listen to an album that I already can't listen to on my current preferred service? I will admit that I'm working on a summer playlist, and I think not having the option to add Bad Blood is really going to make it pop.

June 18, 2015 on No, 1989 Won’t Be On Apple Music
Hmm. Tough decision, but in the end I'm probably going to choose to not listen to 1989 on Spotify as opposed to not listening to it on Tidal or Apple Music.

I have little to no interest in Monsters and Men. I have noticed that despite having a new album full of songs, the radio stations here in WA are still overplaying all their old songs. I haven't even heard the new single on the radio, but I've heard that one about ghosts about 6 times the past couple days on three different stations. That being said, I have no idea if this a Mumford & Sons situation, and I was actually hearing six different songs that all sound like the other one. I don't care enough to find out.
