I’m an American time bomb!
I’m an American mother fucker!
I’m American napalm!
Set to burn and burn and burn!

I’m a red white and blue sunnuva bitch!
Got twelve gauges gonna make me rich!

I’m an American shit storm!
I’m an American tornado!
I’m an American, be warned!
Gonna get you outta my goddamn way!

I’m a misunderstood, political mess!
Smith & Wesson tattooed on my chest!

I’m an American big deal!
I’m an American super star!
I’m an American cheap thrill!
Singin’ old rock songs at the top of my lungs!

I’m a souped-up, hot-rod, bastard son!
With one foot on the gas and a hand on my gun!

I’m an American icon!
I’m an American trigger warning!
I’m an America bygone!
Now my only recourse is to scream!

Yeah, my only recourse is to scream!
Our only recourse is to scream!

Don’t you wanna, wanna wanna scream?!
Don’t you wanna, wanna wanna scream?!
Don’t you wanna, wanna wanna scream?!
Don’t you wanna, wanna wanna scream?!

Nobody knew
fire could be so hot and
nobody knew
bullets could fly so far and
nobody knew
hearts could stop so fast and
nobody knew
everything could be so hard and
nobody knew
secrets could spread so quick and
nobody knew
money could buy so so much and
nobody knew
this could be what we wanted and
nobody knew
truth could be so stressful and
somebody knew
we could be more incredible
somebody somewhere must have known

Some people have had changes in behavior, hostility, agitation, depressed mood, genocidal thoughts or actions while using POLITIX to help them sow fear and hate. Some people had these symptoms when they began using POLITIX, and others developed them several years prior and see symptoms exacerbated by using POLITIX. If you, your family or caregiver notice agitation, hostility, depression or changes in behavior, thinking, or mood that are not typical for you or otherwise decent human beings, or you develop genocidal thoughts or actions, anxiety, panic, aggression, anger, nationalist sentiment, mania, hate speech, urges to troll, abnormal sensations, Twitter outbursts, hallucinations, paranoia or confusion, stop using POLITIX and call a doctor right away. Also tell your doctor about any history of depression or other mental health problems before using POLITIX, as these symptoms may worsen while using POLITIX.

Askin’ questions gonna be an anchorman some day
You got ink on yo’ face

Listen of the Week: Aristophanes

Humans Become Machines, by Aristophanes

[B]ass-heavy and dynamic; the language gap begins to register on the less rhythmically intense numbers. But Aristophanes’s vocal shifts in pace and tone, her performance of each song, give her music a different kind of intelligibility.

Got no clue what she’s rappin’ on about, but this album is spot the fuck on. Also highly recommend you listen to the new Dirty Projectors album. It’s a beauty.

The Waterwood Box, 15

Catch up!

Shaking its head, the striped fish swam over to the box. The sun danced over the fish’s stripes, entrancing Adam.  The fish said, “Well now, that’s certainly an interesting tale. How do you know of the flood?”

Adam stared. “I told you. I opened this box and the wave came. I know about the flood because I was there.”

“Hmm…” was all the fish said before moving to inspect the box. The fish put his lips to the box and said, “It’s waterwood. Who gave you this?”

“I don’t know. It was with my other birthday presents.”

“You don’t know but you opened it anyway? Silly human. Silly person. My school has a saying, ‘An unmarked gift may never stop giving.’”

“How was I supposed to know?”

“You weren’t,” the fish said flatly.

—-

“What’s your name?” the striped fish asked, one eye on Adam.

“Adam Might. What’s yours?”

“Spot,” the fish said with a touch of dignity.

“Spot? Why?” Adam sputtered and laughed.

“What’s so funny? Why are you called Adam?”

“Oh, I’m sorry. It’s just that – it’s funny that your name is Spot but you’ve got stripes all over you.”

“What? Where? GET THEM OFF OF ME!” Spot screamed at Adam. He jumped out of the water, did a spastic twist as though he were trying to shake something off, then came back down with a splash. He resurfaced, still upset and said to Adam, “Are they gone? Please tell me they’re gone!”

Adam shook his head.

“AAAAAHHHH!” Spot yelled and jumped out of the water, coming down hard on one side. He jumped again, this time coming down on the other side with a painful SMACK!

They’ve got to be gone now!” Spot declared.

Adam shook his head again. Spot sped over to Adam. “Please help! Rub them off! Rub off those evil stripes!”
