Crazy Rants

Since becoming a father, I've become even more aware and revolted when I hear about pedophiles and child molesters on the evening news. I still can't help but wonder, however, why in our culture the most common slang term for an object of sexual desire is "baby."

Yesterday was Wednesday. All the crazies come out on Wednesdays. I was surprised by a guy on the bus yesterday who suddenly screamed and the top of his lungs like he was being stabbed, and then he began to spaz out and kept saying "Seattle airport" over and over again. The reason this surprised me so much was because my he never appeared on my weirdo radar scan when I first boarded the bus. He looked like a regular passenger. I figure he must have Turret's syndrome. Due to a stand up comedian's routine 15 years ago, most of the population is under that misconception the Turret's is a disease that makes you uncontrollably shout obscenities, but that's only one possible symptom. With Turret's, the uncontrollable "twitch" can manifest itself in any number of ways and even disguised and controlled.

Hey "urban" kids at the bus stop, stop grabbing your crotch as if it were as acceptable as scratching your nose. You look like a horny moron with crabs. And honking your car horn when you see a pretty girl? Do you REALLY think that will score you points? And while we're at it, all you neo punks, stop acting pissed off when people stare at you. You want people not to stare? Then shave off that two foot high green mohawk, shithooks.

We have airtunes in our studio, which allows us to beam music from our laptops to the stereo in the middle of the room. We take turns playing music, but we all seem to try and play something that everyone *might* want to hear, and nothing that might be embarrassing or unwanted (like the Bay City Rollers). But I am going to breach that unspoken etiquette and playwhatever the Hell I feel like playing when it's my turn. I think it's time for a little "Chim Chiminy" today...

Rant on Brother!!
C'mon if you have green hair and a face full of metal while wearing your good cape then you want attention. We are just giving you what you want. In fact, it should be called what it really is "negative attention". This is the same behavior that that kid in school who would brake all the chalk at the board had. It is because he wanted attention, Any attention.
Thanks man! It always astounded me that the punk culture (the new punk culture, not the original) is all about not giving a shit, but then chooses these incredibly high maintainence styles for their look.
