you know that one show about saving the world?

the one with a team of unlikely heroes?

who’s leader is a man with an eye patch?

And on the team there’s that dark haired asshole who wears a suit?

Also, the genius with anger issues?

And the badass ninja lady who can kick everyone’s ass?

You know, the one with Hawkeye?

And the precious blond cinnamon roll with armor symbolism?

The show with the immortal blonde guy with the beard?

Who is somehow connected to the villain?

Who has an inhuman army at his command?

Remember? It had that guy who died and everyone was really sad about it?

And who could forget the primary-colored stone of unimaginable power which they are all fighting over!

I’m very uncomfortable with the fact that everyone in the marvel universe is extremely attractive.

When did you become a fan: I’ve been a very casual listener for several years now, but I guess you could say I became an actual fan earlier this year (it was Michael Weikath’s fault entirely).
First song you heard: Smoke On the Water
Favorite video: Perfect Strangers
Seen them live: No.
Memory involving the band: Finding out that “Child in Time” was used in Twister (which happens to be one of my all-time favorite movies).  My initial reaction was something along the lines of “Oh my gosh, really!?” and then I started thinking about where it may have been used.  And then it hit me - I immediately started thinking about the scene where everybody goes after the first tornado and Dusty blasts some music and yells “It’s the wonder of nature, baby!”  I had wanted to figure out what the name of that song was for years.  

Political correctness is the oppression of our intellectual movement so no one says anything anymore just in case anyone else get’s offended. What happens if you say that and someone gets offended? Well they can be offended, can’t they? What’s wrong with being offended? When did stick and stones may break my bones stop being relevant? Isn’t that what you teach children? He called me an idiot! Don’t worry about it, he’s a dick.

Now you have adults going “I was offended, I was offended and I have rights!” Well so what, be offended, nothing happened. You’re an adult, grow up, and deal with it. I was offended! Well, I don’t care! Nothing happens when you’re offended. “I went to the comedy show and the comedian said something about the lord, and I was offended, and when I woke up in the morning, I had leprosy.“

Nothing Happens. “I want to live in a democracy but I never want to be offended again.” Well you’re an idiot.

How do you make a law about offending people? How do you make it an offense to offend people? Being offended is subjective. It has everything to do with you as an individual or a collective, or a group or a society or a community. Your moral conditioning, your religious beliefs. What offends me may not offend you. And you want to make laws about this? I’m offended when I see boy bands for god sake.

It’s a valid offense, I’m offended. They’re cooperate shills, posing as musicians to further a modeling career and frankly I’m disgusted.


- Steve Hughes-

NB: I’ve been meaning to post this ever since the attack on the Charlie Hebdo offices but never got around to it. This was actually taken from Steve Hughes’ stand up show but it always stuck out in my mind as both accurate and true, as well as funny when delivered. Some might not agree with this, and fair enough, but it sums up what I think about society in general these days when it comes to the matter of civil liberty.


“No, she confronts him, furiously, and calls him “a fucking liar” (a rare instance of swearing in Hughes film)”


(Good article though) 

Face you make when someone asks what you’re doing and you can’t tell them you’re reading gay porn on your phone
