listen, everybody…especially you girls

i was going to write a big post about how to run a zine distro, but i got like 1800 words in (which is a lot), & i hadn’t even finished explaining how to get started. there’s just too much! i wanted to include all the different things i have learned, the good & theContinue reading “listen, everybody…especially you girls”

folk-punk dude update

i wanted to write a little update on this post (which got several hundred views in the last few days, incidentally). a few days after i wrote this post, it came to the attention of kids in lawrence that the dude in question is a serial sexual assaulter. he goes by the name shane veegunContinue reading “folk-punk dude update”

sideyard tonight: sanctimonious bullshit

one of my friends here in lawrence threw herself a sideyard birthday party a week or two ago. allow me to explain: i live in a building that has five apartments in it. until last week, i lived on the second floor, but over the weekend, i moved up to the top floor. same building,Continue reading “sideyard tonight: sanctimonious bullshit”

moving this weekend, among other things

i’m just clearing the decks from my last blog post, booting it off the top of the page…& making sure everyone scrolls down to read it by writing that. which is fine. i’m just not interested in having something so potentially controversial & incendiary topping the page when suddenly i am getting mad hits here.Continue reading “moving this weekend, among other things”

the crabigail review: underground

sorry, i haven’t posted in a while. & sorry, by pointing that out, i am subscribing to capitalist ethics pertaining to the free labor of maintaining a blog, & displaying fucked up personal relationship with the concepts of “productivity” & “disability” (a recent theme for me). i mailed off the last of the remaining paperContinue reading “the crabigail review: underground”

death of a granny cart

remember that post i made the other day, about running errands & cleaning the house & sometimes a little homemaking maintenance activity can help relieve my stress & anxiety? i wrote a lot about the wire granny cart that i brought with me from boston. i used it to take recycling to the recycling depot,Continue reading “death of a granny cart”

laura ingalls wilder is my therapist

i have been stressing out the last couple of days. i’ll be honest, jared & i had a bit of an argument on wednesday night. it might have involved a lot of crying on my part, & then possibly i went out & bought a pack of cigarettes because cigarettes are my last-ditch anxiety mediator.Continue reading “laura ingalls wilder is my therapist”
