Here is a safe place to come and talk about non sexy things.
How is everyone's friday night so far?
especially now I've left the LDR I was in. it feels quite lonely here and I'm not doing enough writing. but at least the agony is dulled. won't go into details but the last few months have been a mounting catastrophe. so yeah. a heady mix of relief and disorientation.
That will have been very hard so well done and I hope you have a clearer head now. :) Have a good Friday night.
Thanks G! You too.
hope you're alright, pal
very unsexily I assure you.
Mine is going well, I'm Welsh cider and I'm very warm
Listening to the first Mac DeMarco album, it's good.
Gonna go out when it gets fully dark outside and I get the bug. Probably alone actually
what it is is i think think it would be a good idea to have a safe space on dis where we're not allowed to be horrible to each other or to behave in a way that reinforces patriarchy. i suggest if we want our threads to be safe spaces we prefix them with "ss" or something. and anyone who violates the safe space policy is banned for 2 years.
Starting threads with SS will start endless nazi jokes, but I'm on board with the overall plan.
what's ilxor like mate? i feel like the music board on drownedinsound isn't doing it for me these days.
on the one hand, intellectual cowardice is treated with scant mercy, but on the other, jaded tolerance and even support of various cultural orthodoxies is allowed to prevail. fortunately, less so concerning music. i doubt you'd find it sufficiently radical in toto, but the poptimism it's founded on contains an extremely important kernel of radical crit-theory that sometimes rises to the surface
the most pressing demerit is that there are far too many shit polls, endlessly regurgitating the dialogues of yesteryear to no discernibly constructive effect aside from perhaps introducing people to music they'd like - but then this method is an inefficient and tiresome means of doing so
it's most rewarding when a battleground of tastes, rather than an echo-chamber - the sorts of threads that trigger the former are increasingly rare. come along, shake it up imo
i guess you need to hear me read my posts read out loud to reeally get them
Having a quiet night in as I've got to get up early to get a train. Every time I stay in on a Friday I realise why I normally go out - the tv is so awful. Did just watch the latest episode of The Honurable Woman though, which was good.
Sexy levels: low.
Cheered up a bit after a blazing row with a mental Polish agent earlier. Gonna go out for a couple later, but wanna stay sober as watching all 3 LotR tomorrow with a drinking game. Sundays 8am driving lesson is going to be "difficult".
And/or I said something embarrasing and couldn't face talking to them ever again.
Hate driving instructors. Especially if I was hungover.
And now im in a room with 8 of my 22 1st cousins that live in the uk after a gigantic lamb and rice meal. Nearly all of us are on our phones its really bad
Also I am massively sunburned. Argh I thought being dark skinnes saved me from that
lying in bed, not feeling very good
got a packet of jellies
was going to read some classical greek literature but i really can not be arsed
my boyfriends been away for twelve hours and i''m already boring myself. might keep a list of things to talk about when he gets back. #1 these sweets.
After week at my other job. That is pretty fucking unsexy. One of the patients kept asking me to go to get in her bed for a 'surprise'.which might have seemed sexy to her but...I politely declined. Good to know I'm attractive to mentally unstable women in their late 50's though....#stillgotit
Just let me lie out in the rain, ta.
don't have the vocabulary to describe this person's way of speaking. all the impression's she's doing and different voices and her jokes and non-verbal communication. gives me a lot to say in the bit about my method of data analysis though so that's good.
at one point she started throwing things.
It's damnedly difficult to do at anything like an acceptable pace, but if the subject matter is interesting then this doesn't matter
Got punished by travelling across London with suitcases on the underground in the sweltering heat and now tropical rainstorms but in Essex. No food in the house, not on holiday anymore, hashtag post holiday blues.
slavoj zizek / jacques lacan slashfic
When the young psychoanalyst Jacques Lacan is wounded by a marauding band of anarcho-syndicalists, Slavoj Zizek swoops in to save the day. But will he save Lacan only to lose his own heart?
oh right this is the unsexy thread
ermm...... i think i'm gonna watch the anime of this http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wandering_Son for a bit
awwww the first episode is great :3
awwww and the second
this was well done tbf
let's write some scott walker / sunn o))) slashfic in the run up to the album being released
When was that cretin going to turn up? Greg was busy in the kitchen with the potatoes and their cat Ouroboros hadn't come home for supper yet.
It was after approximately 2 and a half hours of doomful consideration, that the screech of a push-scooter alerted him to the great man's arrival. "Greg!" he shrieked. "Knock up a pot of tea, will you?"
some possible ideas to throw in there:
- oh no! they left the incense burning too long and have summoned the ghost of Aleister Crowley who claims to have found the most satanic geometry for a threesome
- the whole album was a ruse by Scott to chain SOMA up and have him crawl around on the floor (as that's the best Foley sound to represent humanity's voyeurism as evident by the rise of reality television)
- 'Current 93' is their safety word
- outside, a Hungarian mixed choir beats a sheep to death with kendo swords
- the whole thing's being livestreamed on ubuweb, so Scott's very particular about the chiaroscuro
- somewhere, Malefic is still inside that coffin
so I might watch that later
Right now, being all morose and listening to the For Carnation in the hayouse
Friday Night Dinner was a goodie
they spend about 30 seconds with shields (not our shields), his 100 or so pedals and a load of amps
it was a bit boring tbh

That sounds great... It's hard to describe, more like the invasion/destruction of native Indians in America as a fantasy/3d animated tale.
well it was anyway. I killed them. Ten. Big shit lazy easy to kill flies origin unknown
To Kill Flies
£18, £17.50 conc
you get about 1p off at the edinburgh fringe this year
i need to meet some new people, i can't really stand the people i know and see regularly right now
all of my friends are too far away now
graduating from uni was a bad move
you still doing those poems?
i've been writing stuff! but i hate all of it so i guess not for a while. it is cool that you remember that though cheers
sat at my desk drinking red wine so at least you are not alone :)
Chilean Merlot for me and yourself?
i had lemonade with bits of fruit in in a wine glass before
Well cheap and fruity sounds good to me as indeed does using wine glasses for regular (albeit poshed up) lemonade!
I believe my wine came from Asda so I'm hardly pushing the boat out here :D
but swap the wine for beer
as well as being really nervous about the stuff that makes people nervous, and some stuff largely unrelated to me in the long run
