Back To School- Oldies And Goodies

I've had this forever (I wore it on Bletchley Park Day!). It didn't fit for a good two years. It fits now, so I am going to wear it to RAGS. I hate my hair color.

My stylist made it darker because it fades pretty quickly. But I don't want brown hair with a waft of red. I want red hair with a waft of blonde. I cannot wait to have it redone. The thing that mildly annoys me is that she made it darker without telling/asking me, even though I said "once again I want Ron Weasley Hair." Fortunately, one of her better qualities is being able to hear me say "I really don't like this at all" and not have a snit about it.

CONTENT NOTE FOR 80's ERA HIP HOP HEROES AND GAMING CONVENTIONS

So I just read this: http://www.wired.com/underwire/2013/09/penny-arcade-expo-dickwolves/

And it just reminded me... I have thought for a long time that The Beastie Boys' interview on Fresh Air several years ago is a model of How To Be A Grown Up.

When asked about improvising lyrics, and which ones they choose, one replied to Terry Gross "well... usually the more sexist stuff." He goes on to explain they really kind of needed to grow up and cut that s*it out. So they did. I liked the Beastie Boys before that interview, even though as a kid in the 80's I was kind of o_O about some of the material. But I am a Beastie Boys loyalist forever, now.

The PAX guys, of Dickwolves infamy, depressingly have huge industry influence, as Love's comment in the article shows. This is one reason I am so bummed by their ongoing a**-clowning attitude about that whole mess. I don't even mean the original comment. It's their utter refusal to have a real talk with their fans about the escalating online abuse that got pitched at critics of the whole jam that bummed me out. That, and the fact that the one dude, Gabe, seems committed to flogging this very, very dead horse over and over. It seems to not have sunk in that you can't make a space welcoming, if you are the only person who gets to define what welcoming is. And he can't let go of the idea that maybe, just maybe, it was time to let this go.

I think they could take a leaf from the Beastie Boys Handbook Of Being A Grown Ass Adult, and it would do a world of good and wonder.

The first minutes of this replay have the minute I am thinking of:

*seriously, she walks slower than I do, plus sniffing

**she seems to associate it with people arriving since the bell routes to the phone

*** this is when you get a play crouch where she pulls all her limbs in as if she is about to take off sprinting

****aside from one german shepherd at the dog park, whom she really likes, she seems to think all dogs are... fine? but mostly she seems to like people. olive, however, she will follow/lead wherever, pack-style. the slight preference for the species/ independent quality greyhounds have appears to be true for astrid

***** she will collapse daintily under a shady spot any chance she gets when it's warm

****** she will even move pillows to her liking. like so:
