“This the revenge of the dicks; that’s nine cocks that cock 9’s This ain’t no V. Tech shit or Columbine But after bowling,”
These bars reference the 9 members of Odd Future about to get their revenge but not on a large scale like V. Tech nor Columbine; “cock 9′s” making reference to cock back 9mm pistols and “but after bowling” was based on the belief Harris and Klebold attended bowling class early that morning.
Columbine is mentioned once again in Track 3, titled ‘Radicals’. Tyler makes a loose reference regarding Harris and Klebold through the ‘fuck school’ persona evident in the song. He later went on to Tweet about the shooters being ‘radicals’. When asked about the impact ‘Radicals’ could have on young listeners, Tyler stated:
“If Columbine is reenacted or some shit, that’s gonna be on my fucking head. Yeah, it’ll be my fault, just like it was Em’s and Marilyn’s and fucking Slipknot’s and all them motherfuckers”. - Respect magazine
Prior to this, Tyler found himself in ‘hot water’ when people begin calling out this Tweet of his:
Speaking to Q Magazine, Tyler defended his Tweet saying:
“I got into an argument because I said the Columbine [shooters] were probably really cool people. I was just saying they could have been really nice people, probably could have taken them to a game. I wasn’t saying what they did was right”.
In 2013, Tyler, The Creator dropped his highly anticipated album ‘Wolf’. Tyler made it public that track 12, ‘Pigs’, was about Harris and Klebold tweeting:
Speaking to NME Magazine, Tyler states that he does not sympathise with the killers and is merely trying to understand their motivations. Going on to say:
"I tried to write a song from their perspective, to try and figure that out. Those kids were nerds, fucking dweebs. I’m intrigued as to how they thought, not what they did. How do regular kids become what they became?”
In saying this Tyler also Tweeted out this to his fans:
The first verse being:
“Geek, fag, stupid loser find a rope to hang // I’m not bipolar, see I’m just known by those couple names // I wanna tell my pops but shit, he’ll probably say the same // Fuck…hated by everyone, that’s the way it seems // I don’t know whats shorter, his damn temper or my self esteem // I sit in my room and I listen to tunes, I’m amused alone // Cause none of the cool kids would let me join a team // Depression’s on the stalk again // My best friend’s an inhaler because it will not let me cough // Whenever I am losing oxygen, bully hand around my neck // Cause he felt disrespected when I decided to talk again // I brought that on myself, see I should know my place // But not at lunchtime, see // I know better then to show my face around them // But the day I do it’ll be everywhere // When I share these feelings finally they gon’ fucking care”
I think sometimes you can learn a lot about a person from their clothing choices, and I’ve always sorta wanted to make some fashion sets ^ ^ So I’m making one for the OC kids, starting with the eldest as usual, Yasha! (He’s probably pre-teen-ish around here, maybe, idk)
Yasha still more or less thinks of himself as a boy (when he can be bothered to think about it at all) but loves flowers, pastels, and anything soft and gentle (in harsh contrast to his blunt as a bludgeon personality). And most importantly, he kinda just really hates wearing pants and underwear, when he can get away with full nudity… He takes the young!Victor flower fairy aesthetic to the next level. He can be very picky about what he wears, and usually prefers expensive but relatively unknown specialty brands. His parents, especially Victor, are more than happy to indulge his tastes.
IF YOU ARE NEW TO THIS AU: It’s a Yuri!!! on Ice AU, Yuuri-centric with end-game polyamory in an ABO
setting, Yuuri gets married to four mates (Victor, Yurio, Phichit, Minami)
and they have OC kids.
Sometimes it’s good to look back and smile upon passed memories. The past should not be dragged too far with you into the future, but there are bits of pieces of it that can remain forever close to your heart.
