Lelsey wrote something on Missbehave that basically says, “Fuck the nerds.” I’m inclined to agree but only with a certain type of nerd. Nerds with balls are the reason everything we love exists.
Lelsey wrote something on Missbehave that basically says, “Fuck the nerds.” I’m inclined to agree but only with a certain type of nerd. Nerds with balls are the reason everything we love exists. It’s wimp nerds that have to go. What’s a nerd with balls? It’s called “a fan.”
Morrissey wanted to be a music journalist and had a few passes at impressing NME before he gave up and became a musician himself.
Iggy Pop was a punk nerd that fanatically followed Detroit music and chose the best musicians from every band to form The Stooges.
Chuck D used to design flyers for local rap shows and eventually decided to form his own band.
Ludacris started his own radio show to talk about all the bands he loved before becoming a rapper himself.
Christy Karacas is a nerd but without him you wouldn’t have Cheeseburger or Superjail. Every good musician has a huge record collection at home and has been carefully making mix tapes since he was a child. You can tell which artists out there don’t have big record collections. They rarely last more than a few weeks. Christy does all this shit because he’s a fan. And every important maker of pop culture is also a voracious consumer of pop culture.
PS I took an Adderall as I started to type this and it’s pretty obvious exactly where it kicked in.
PPS My apartment is fucking freezing right now and I can feel a huge breeze coming in from the air conditioner. Can they not design an air conditioner that is air tight in the winter?
PPPS I know this guy that just lost his home. The pipes froze and he wasn’t there and they exploded so his well was sending 6 gallons a minute into every floor of his house. It’s like Katrina in there. Wetness crawling halfway up every wall in the house. Everything is toast, even the floor. They said it would be cheaper to demolish it and build a new one from scratch. He has insurance but you know, it’s his home.
The thing I don’t get is, can pumps not have a thing that says, “Nobody needs 6 gallons a minute for three days. I’m going to shut myself off now.” I guess people with swimming pools could have a special setting that says: Inordinate Amount of Water Please. Otherwise the shut off kicks in. If I try to spend more than $500 on my credit card they call me to ask what’s going on. Water should be the same way. Houses are not built by fans. Only someone with real passion about their job would have the balls to pioneer a shut off valve.
PooPooS I gotta poo.
