Derek Archambault: New EP for Hip Replacement →
Derek from Defeater / Alcoa has launched a Pledge Music fundraising campaign to help with the cost of a hip replacement surgery. Derek has had significant issues with his hip for some time now, which has prevented him from touring. After consulting multiple doctors, insurance companies and so on, Derek’s left with paying for a hip replacement out of pocket, as the only solution. Derek and Alcoa have recorded a new EP, entitled, “Thank You,” which is available digitally for a minimum donation of $5. Other exclusive items available include a limited edition Alcoa T shirt, a physical CD version of the “Thank You’ EP in custom, handmade packaging, created by Derek and limited to 200 copies and 50 hand screened posters featuring lyrics from Defeater’s “Letters Home,” album, handwritten by Derek.
#fbf to March 2013 when we toured to Florida and back. Not only were we lucky enough to have friends at almost every stop, but we got to spend three dates with our RVA brothers in Springtime and Brief Lives as well. Many new friends were also made! We love and miss our Richmond and Florida friends, old and new. #brieflives #springtime #oldflings
#tbt to the weekend we first hung out (and fell in love) with Family Cat and Burners. A super weird weekend with Fam Cat that ended with a killer show set up by Burners. We packed 7 people in our van for some of the most uncomfortable rides ever. Would do it all over again, too. I love and miss all of these friends.
Regram from @grantbittermelody. The 3rd press of Spite has been selling really well in just a short amount of time, but both #bittermelodyrecords AND #selfawarerecords have some of the cosmos/starburst variants left, so go gitcha sum.
Regram from @jthurnes7, one of the best guys ever. Go to his Instagram and look at the luxurious golden hair he used to have.
Straight edge cant have sex either ? Can you explain everything exactly about edge please it would be nice.
Straight edge is actually pro-sex. Sex is healthy, and part of a healthy life.
But edge is born of a time when sexual conquest often meant date rape, so yeah, fuck date rape.
Here is a quote from Ian Mackaye on the subject:
What I was clearly discussing was abusive quest oriented, manipulative sex. People who were not interested in other people’s feelings, but only in getting off.
I saw as a teenager that peoples energies were so squarely caught up in getting laid that a lot of pain and and hurt came out of it. I knew women who were raped by people who did not care for anything other than getting off. And I just thought that this kind of obsession was not healthy….
I thought I’d speak out against it, and I got a rise out of a lot of people. I am pro-sex, I certainly have no problem with sex between people who want to have sex. But I felt that so much energy in our scene was spent on selfish aims…

nessainky, straight from the horse’s mouth
Forget the loudest love songs we sang under your attic. They always felt too quiet. We should scream until the police shriek, “Hold it down.” We’ll tell them, “Yeah, alright.” then bang the amplifiers. We’re not violent. We’re just some dumb kids getting wasted and knowing we’re alive. There is anger, but it is just. It is power. The kids are still alright. We’re just too high to fight. And it’s brave to be polite and to wear fake leather. So, I carved your name in mine and I thought all about how we stumble around until gravity sleeps and you slip and fall into me.

BATMAN: BLACK & WHITE #1 (June 1996)
"TWO OF A KIND" By Bruce Timm
This is my favorite Two-Face story and Timm is a genius
I kept expecting the Marylin/Madeline twin aspect to be a figment of Harvey’s mind. There was really only one woman the whole time, and he killed her for nothing.
I read this comic at a grocery store the year it came out. I was 10 years old and I remember being struck by how brutal and violent the artwork was, but that’s mostly because I was a sheltered Christian kid for all of my childhood. Batman has always been my favorite superhero but I never bought many of his comics, so it was a shock to see something so “mature” when I expected them to be much more like the Saturday morning cartoon.
It’s cool to see this pop-up and recognize every frame from 18 years ago.
Oh yeah, this came in the mail yesterday. These are the best summer jams of the year. Thanks, Mikey! @deadbrokerekerds #beachslang
