X = $ Join a straight edge band for fun and profit
First of all, if you’re straight edge already, you were probably born rich, and you dad is probably the governor or something, but if you’re a broke loser who wants to hit the big time, straight edge may be for you. Straight edge is like a cult, and rich, suburban kids buy S.E. tapes, zines, CD’s, sweats, shoes, etc. whether they’ve heard the band, or not. Just because it’s S.E. Andy Powell, ex drummer for S. Florida X-Men, Powerhouse, once told Scam’s own, Milo, that Powerhouse sold 8,000 copies all over the world! Plus, S.E. Records get sold in malls next to WilsonPhillips, “Kill Saddam” shirts and “Just Say No” pins. Lots of merchandise for maximum profit! S.E. is very “1990’s” if you know what I mean. And look how much fun they seem to be having, sweating hard with the crew, pumping fists with the boys… I don’t see why we don’t all become straight edge and start making money today!
Last one bald’s a rotten egg!
There’s nothing wrong with being a straight white guy who enjoys hardcore. There is something wrong with judging someone based on their race instead of their character.
I haven’t dated anyone in this room.
— Me at the Reason party today. Maybe not all hope is lost and there is a libertarian man out there for me.
Hardcore is for everyone. Zero Progress is releasing this new music video to celebrate that idea. UNITED SLAM!

Hair is growing out. I can finally wear it in a ponytail again.
I never thought of myself as the type of person who sat in parklets in front of trendy cafes with coffee scribbling in a black notebook but I was today. I was supposed to meet “someone” there today but he canceled 5 minutes before the agreed upon time. I decided to just go anyway since I had nothing to do for an hour and I thought I could use some coffee.
I accidentally killed two fish today. I cleaned my tank and forgot to put in the water cleaner. I came back about an hour later and two of them were dead and 1 was just barely alive. The turtle was fine though. I read that they are less sensitive to chemicals in tap water.
I immediately scooped them out and put them in a separate fishbowl but it was too late. I buried the dead ones in my backyard.
The third fish looked like it wasn’t going to make it at first but I filled up the bowl with bottled water and it started perking up. I put my turtle in the bowl too for good measure.
I had the three fish for years. They were 1 inch long feeders for my turtle when I got them. For some reason, the turtle just stopped eating them (still bit their tails occasionally though) and lived peacefully with them. The feeders got really big.
R.I.P. poor fishies.
