Friday Fun Fact: List of Generic types of observances

Youth Soccer

Understanding that this is the world,
the little girl throws her hands skyward
and shrieks death to all before her.

Though she has yet to age           and age.

Though she has yet to be so clearly misunderstood
     misrepresented
     misinterpreted
mistaken for something she is not.

Though she has yet to explain           when no explanations are due.

Though she has yet to be overlooked
     to feel inescapable attraction
     to walk so very many miles
     to be asked not to say
     to be wary to admit.

Today, she is a little girl
     thriving in a painful world,
     upset with an upset world,
     existing in this very world,
flailing arms, piercing screams, and all.

Listen of the Week: Dilly Dally

Sore by Dilly Dally

In an age of Femfresh and facial contouring, Dilly Dally fly the flag for the unvarnished female; propelled by an animalistic hornineness, stomach-rumbling hunger and the moody determination of bratty punk rock.

http://www.theguardian.com/music/2015/oct/08/dilly-dally-sore-review-album-toronto-indie-punks

Snarly, female-lead punk. What else do you need? (Besides a little animalistic horniness?)

Friday Fun Facts: Waynesville, Missouri

i’ve just ten lines to show you a world

to bring you new colors from once-hidden objects
to offer my heart and try to win yours over
to entice the formation of new neural pathways
to bring you to the verge of tears
to moisten your lips in anticipation
to carve a statue that moves only when you close your eyes
and the punchline is that there are never enough lines
even if i cheat and loop-de-loop this poem’s end
right back around to its quite obvious title
i’ve just ten lines to show you a world

The Focus Of This Protocol Is The Handling Of Unexpected Incidents

A pebbly, electric dissonance
     glitches across your face.
I race around the room to find
     your power supply but cannot.
You’re wrought from copper wire angels
     and strings of hex lyrics.
Still, it’s your current spirit that continues
     this form of wave interference.
Appearance always structured pix-elated;
     we’ve lost much sleep debugging this code
Though the load was shown to operate without fail
     under recommended and expected parameters.
Damages seem to most often occur
     when the system(s) take on additional stress.
Therefore we suggest pulling the host(s) off-line
     and confirming physical connections.
Projections for continued functionality
     are bare, obtuse, and rather grim.
Slim chances for productivity
     without a full forensic analysis.
It now, however, appears that all flows end in paralysis.
Decisions colored in paralysis.

Listen of the Week: Deafheaven

New Bermuda by Deafheaven

[I]n listening, what I keep returning to is Clarke’s voice. I can’t even tell if I like it or not. In the context of the death metal tradition, it is staid. As an instrument, it is used almost purely to unsettle; no other tone is explored. On one hand, I’d like to see more range; a scream is louder and more impressive if it’s compared to a whisper. But coming from other noisy genres — or approaching Deafheaven from shoegaze, post-punk, or their other influences — there’s something perverse and intriguing about insisting on no clean vocals.

Friday Fun Facts: Ichime Glacier

Did ya know…?

Ichime Glacier is a glacier flowing to the sea just west of Kasumi Rock in Queen Maud Land, Antarctica. It was mapped from surveys and air photos by members of the Japanese Antarctic Research Expedition, 1957–1962. The glacier is named due to the dermatological irritation it invokes in human beings that stand near it. Those first discovering the glacier came down with such severe instances of itchy skin that they had to be airlifted from the continent and soaked in coconut oil and epsom salts before their condition subsided. Ichime Glacier is only known to irriate human skin. Penguins, elephants seals, and aliens who’ve crashed into Antarctica seem to have no issue being in the vicinity of the icy itchfest. Special anti-itch suits were developed in 1986 by Karl Lagerfeld, providing both form, function, and fashion for those scientists studying Ichime Glacier.
