Anti-sexual harassment stickers up around Lake Merritt: “Stop telling women to smile.”
I am over the passivity of good men. Where the hell are you? You live with us, make love with us, father us, befriend us, brother us, get nurtured and mothered and eternally supported by us, so why aren’t you standing with us? Why aren’t you driven to the point of madness by the rape and humiliation of us?
We are very good at preparing to live, but not very good at living. We know how to sacrifice ten years for a diploma, and we are willing to work very hard to get a job, a car, a house, and so on. But we have difficulty remembering that we are alive in the present moment, the only moment there is for us to be alive.

So far i’m spending Easter smokin a bowl, eating turtle creme pie, and listening to new Wild Nothing. I see nothing wrong with this. Parents sure can make you feel bad about not going to church though.
