I don't get a "happy" vibe from Sev's post, but I'm glad the storm has passed anyway. (And maybe I'm mis-reading.)

I’m definitely glad that I will be remaining in my profession, and not straying into something vastly different for not a large enough payoff to warrant the risk, but you’re right... “happy” is not what I’m feeling. Honestly, it was an EXTREMELY stressful ordeal. I was prepared to leave the job that has become a part of who I am, and then I decided not to at the exact last moment, and had to speak to the folks who would have hired me and politely decline. I did not sleep a wink the night before last, and last night I was up late working.

So yeah. Not exactly happy, but I am relieved and I never actually wanted to leave my job in the first place.

I've been listening to a load of MDC at the moment and decided to take a look on their wiki page. I was STUNNED to find out about this whole argument regarding Big Brains.

For those who don't know it...

Quote:
During the summer of 1982 they became involved in the Rock Against Reagan Tour, during which time they fell out with the band Bad Brains when Rastafarian singer H.R. learned that Big Boys' singer, Randy Turner, was gay. H.R. and MDC's Dave Dictor had an intense confrontation. Upon Bad Brains' departure from the bill, they refused to return a loan owed to Big Boys and instead left a note that reportedly read, "burn in hell bloodclot faggot." The incident resulted in the MDC song Pay to Come Along.[4] For MDC, 1982 ended with a tour of Europe with the Dead Kennedys which brought the band greater exposure in the punk scene outside of the U.S., especially in the UK.

Always a bummer when a band you love turn out to be total cunts

The negative space speaks louder than the spaces filled with stuff.


I either really like or already do most of that, except: I like a full fridge and cabinets. I'm not even much of a "foodie," I just like having a bunch around.

Rastafari are very close-minded when it comes to sexuality. They believe an old-fashioned division of gender, one where women are not to be included in smoke "sessions" and where a man is not to be tied down to one woman. They also have very rigid views on homosexuality. Rastafari take certain stuff in the Bible as literal as Evangelical Americans.

where is the line between minimalism and fetishizing being poor as fuck?

I don't think the extreme nature of minimalist living is the right solution to consumerism. it seems like a reactionary opposite, which in Japan works because everything is expensive as fuck and there just is not much room for homes and personal belongings.

that fridge full of frozen rice is crazy.

it’s funny that you see poverty and deprivation and i see a huge RELIEF. it’s like “aaaaaaah, i can breathe...”.

i’m *always* trying to get rid of my stuff, and there are so many infinite layers of stuff it’s mind-boggling. you can’t just throw everything arbitrarily because you’ll be at the store next day trying to get new stuff to function again. because it’s not really about too many things per se, it’s about too many functions operating in your life, and how each of them interconnect in a tangled tangled web. it’s taking me years to dismount/decommission them, and really to optimize them, i’m not anywhere near finished.

i really find a huge mental relief in simplicity. it’s not a fetish, i think anyway, it’s more about having more peace and silence and pleasure. not having to care after so many unnecessary things. how can i put it: it’s good for my serotonin.

I was not speaking about YOUR desires to live minimally. more power to you my man. I was referring to the spate of high end magazines and blogs espousing minimalism as another "pat myself on the back for being such a GOOD HUMAN!" kind of thing.

If I were to divide everything I own (besides the car) into groups, 90% of it would be books, records, art/art supplies. These are things I value.

as far as most people I know? Most of their shit truly is unnecessary, redundant, or just bought/owned to try and impress people. I support people getting rid of all that type of shit.

oh right every trend or movement has its self-righteous people in autoglorify mode. just the other say i was reading about people who eat organic food being more judgmental ha ha ha ha.

but even with those shortcomings i’d rather have a world with a little more of that and a little less QVC.

as for books, man, i have marched across the world with books in tow (m-bags and library rate ftw) but i am now ready to say goodbye to their physical weight. as much as i once loved them, now they’re trophies of something i did more than serve a function. i desperately need to pare down so i can fly free.

i can’t bring myself to toss them though. i need to find them new good owners, or something.

I only keep books that are personally valuable, rare, or deeply loved. Still, it is a lot to take in from 44 years of reading.

what I hate are clothes. I hate buying them, caring for them, choosing "outfits." etc. Last year I did a full cull, and got rid of half of my clothing items.

"organic" doesn't mean shit BTW. It is a self-stamped label. there is no oversight as to what constitutes an organic product or not. it is just as much make-believe as the bullshit nutrition supplements that everyone takes and pisses away down the toilet.

oh man i hate clothes so much i’ve reduced them basically to a limited number of uniforms.

but as for beloved books, i’m ditching those too. that’s why i can’t simply “throw them out”—it’s a matter of handing them down to the correct persons. swedish death cleaning! lolololol.

it’s a form of small suicide i suppose. not a sad one—more of a freeing one. suicide of the ego anyway. trying...

man im crazy ha ha ha. but i gotta let my freak flag fly.

My editor is leaving. Took me out to lunch today and I thought she was going to tell me I was fired or some shit, but it turns out she’s leaving. After 20-plus years.

Now I guess it’s time to learn if I really love what I do, or if I just loved having a compassionate, intelligent, tough-as-fuck female boss who had my back and thought I was great.

Weird feeling.

what? no...

there are standards and certifications

they’re all different from each other, and levels of enforcement may vary, but yeah, it does mean something

She did cry. She didn’t *sob,* but yeah... she teared up. And I damn near teared up when she told me she was quitting.

And she’s leaving for a PR gig.

Lolololololololol

it would be hilarious if she’s taking the job they had offered you. i mean, likely it’s not, but it would be hilarious, because maybe she was tearing up about you taking the job from her not you leaving. or maybe it was something else, like she saying “dammit i wasted my life in this profession and now this kid is gonna walk to his dream.” bha ha ha.

but listen: this is a good lesson for you. sure sure “we told you so,” but being told something is not the same as realizing it on your own. your employer is not your friend. boot to the head! now you know-know.

sorry if this is frustrating but eh. you snooze you loose, as children say. now let’s laugh at this, as we should.
