It’s possible that I’ve always been a crotchety old man, but I think that my grumpiness has greatly usurped my easy going-ness over the last few years. Here’s a list of things that can go fuck themselves:
Fuck daylight savings time- I hate getting off work without any daylight to enjoy. I’m not complaining about the days getting shorter, I can live with that, but going to work early and then coming home in pitch darkness makes me feel like all I do is work.
Fuck Halloween- I don’t mind it in small towns, but in the city it feels like people are just looking for an excuse to get crazy. There’s just so many assholes out on Halloween looking to start a fight, I’m-a just barricade my doors at 7pm and say night night.
Fuck new music- Okay, now I’ve always had a peeve with people who just diss on new music. For most of my life it felt like all my friends listened to the Cure or the Ramones and always bitched about new music, wherein I always new everything about practically every new indie rock band out there, I knew the singer names and album info for album’s that I hadn’t ever even heard. Now I sort of feel like I’m becoming really cemented in my tastes, I’ve been re-collecting my favorite records from the nineties and HECK-A diggin’ on these 10 and 15 year anniversary rereleases (Dirty, the Blue Album, Entroducing, Downward Spiral, Crooked Rain, and that new nirvana “Sliver” disc). It feels with every disc I’m buying I’m putting together my own fort, you can find me crouched up inside it yelling “your music sucks” from within it. But seriously, I’m having a hard time finding good music that I haven’t already heard, as a result the artists I’m seeing have been around forever and have huge packed shows (note:Fuck Packed Shows).
Fuck the Electoral College- Okay, kind of an odd one, but when we’re talking about disenfranchised voters we have to look at the system wherein every vote doesn’t really matter (voting dem in texas is of course a futile exercise) and be able to say “maybe this is why people don’t bother voting”. I mean look at those reality tv shows with the call in voting, people do it because they wanna feel involved. Now, imagine if that was split up by state, we’ll okay dumb point. But fuck the electorial college non-the-less. Every citizen should shape the election no matter where they live, I’m tired of swing states getting all the attention, and I believe that the 3rd party system can better get a gripping in a fair system.
Fuck careless bikers: As bad as careless drivers, bikers should be a step above that. But I keep having these run ins with these cats that just run through every stop sign and light, I mean they don’t even slow down or look around, they’ve got this arrogant “I’m so important nobody will hit me vibe”, which is fine if they are the only ones in danger, but I’m constantly seeing these cats nearly knock down pedestrians, or cause accidents just because they can’t slow down.
Fuck my apartment: The cops came over 5 times last weekend, and there’s this crazy shit with someone on my floor, and the downstairs neighbor. I need a break for a while, so I’m moving to the Tenderloin to sub-lease an apartment from my buddy RJ. I mean, it’s plenty crazy over there too, but at least tranny crackwhores don’t do drive byes or threaten to stab you because you are wearing a blue shirt.
