This shit is art VOLUME FOREVER. Gonz being Gonz. NY being NY. So sick.

One of my favorite instagram accounts and federal departments is shut down. The U.S Dept of the Interior is so sick. All they care about are our national parks, lands, and animals. Came across this opinion's article on the cnn blog.. as taxpayers we should be credited money every day of the shut down. It is only fair ( and logical ) that the government should owe US money on the next federal refund. The lights are off and nobody's fucking home. These politicians are getting a paid vacation while everyone else is supposed to get used to not only disappointment, but a fucking giant government FAIL for millions of people that rely on government funded programs. This is way worse than getting hustled for a $2 cupcake on Broadway St. when it's supposed to be $1. Or getting hustled in Hong Kong while shopping for cameras with the old "bait and switch." This is way worse. The whole country is getting hustled. That Bald Eagle is getting played.

We are being run by a government that doesn't believe in a functioning government. The basic concept of what's going on is insane even though this isn't the first government shutdown by any means. Here are some shutdown related links from around the internet..

Mark your calendars.. From the creator of Dollar Stories.. Galen Dekemper and friends brings NYC A Free Buzz Gang Production. Anthology Film Archive is such a cool theatre. Long live DIY premieres. Word on the street is Happy Hour will be an actual hour! So hydrate accordingly.

These are the "realities of democracy". Senator Elizabeth Warren is so EPIC. We are living in some crazy fucking times.

M.I.A interview from a few years ago about the music industry. The interviewer totally annoys me. But if you can read between the lines and even listen to what she is saying, she makes a lot of sense. But this guy is obviously really good at cliff hanging on every lyrical line on the sleeve and enjoys picking at her very obvious introspective outlook on her own career by asking her really superficial corny questions like " Do you like being famous?" It's like he didn't hear anything that came out of her mouth the first twenty minutes about her frustrations with the music industry, artistic/personal growth, and the limitations of the internet. I get this vibe he wants to expose her for being a fake or a phony. But maybe he just enjoys playing devil's advocate. In which case, people in real life that enjoy playing devil's advocate all the time are so FUCKING ANNOYING to be around. I'm not feeling his approach. He's quick to label her upon every few answers, and then follows it up with some lame, smart ass alternative like, "why don't you just quit being you and go make music in the woods if you don't like the attention". But M.I.A. holds it down for herself. She's such a thoughtful, articulate human, it's cool to see someone that calm admist the bullshit.

The music industry sounds like a bummer. Very cool youtube though .Thanks to Quin for posting this on fb. A lesson on corporations and real DIY. And this is from three years ago. But still true nonetheless.

The caption to this one is : 

This heavy metal guy has been shredding guitar behind my couch for the last hour


You might want to stop the video once it's done cause it's on a loop. Ha. So good though. 

Holy fuck. Is it possible to be in love with a vine account? This dude is an internet media master.

90's Porno with Fugazi. Safe for Work. BEST.

Gummy Worm Drill.

I know a few people who can relate. Thanks to Chelsea for this gem.

So clever. So effective. Couldn't imagine this campaign in America. Despite it's brilliance and importance, shit like that would never fly here. Sad.

Tina Fey is so sick. God, I love her. The only version of GIRLS I would actually watch. And completely enjoy.
