Started writing a long message to someone about how using the word “terrorist” in conjunction with alf isn’t correct… typing… typing… sweating… getting more intense… took a step back, looked at whole blog “vegan weight loss blog” deleted the entire thing. Why waste my time on someone who is vegan to lose weight. Get fucked. it’s like the difference between straightedge and drug free… you don’t do anything… you are drug free. way to go. straight edge is about something more than that. a bound between people you may never meet. but you know there is common bound between you, no matter what else is different… i, don’t really feel that bound anymore… so i don’t really get to crazy about straight edge stuff anymore. vegans let the lifestyle consume their entire everything… well, they should. always trying to make changes (for the better). if you are condemning someone for taking the next step, you need to think about why. most of us will never have the heart and the commitment to ending the exploitation of animals the these individuals do. to sit back and watch them be called terrorists is a crime, but do condone it… to side with them?! fuck right off. protests and civil disobedience will only get the point across to a certain point… every revolutionary change has had both side of the fight, going towards the same goal… To put the other side on blast is only hurting the over all cause. i’m still coming off the other post… so this got a lot longer than i thought it would. People need to understand the seriousness of using words like “terrorist”… we just throw it around like it doesn’t carry that much weight… but just wait. you will be able to call a number and claim your neighbor is a terrorist like you were able to cast the cloud over someone in the 20’s by calling them a communist. Basically… claim vegan and denounce the actions of the alf and elf… you’re half steppin.
If YOU want to control what YOU put into YOUR bodies, fine. If that includes no meat, fine. If YOU want to control what kinds of things YOU wear, fine.
Just don’t press what you want to do onto other people. It should be some sort of universal law, god damn.
so what you are saying is that ALL speaking up for any BEING being exploited should stop? No one should stand up to racists, homophobes, sexists? Where ever there is unjust happening there will ALWAYS be a movement against it aboveground and underground. And you get enough of people speaking out against the people living against the grain then you will have corporations and governments involved… Then is all down hill from there. What people like you don’t understand is telling vegans to shut up about animal rights is just a small snowball at the top a very very high mountain. Before you tell us to shut up, you should think about the consequences. We (Vegans) are speaking up for beings with no voice for themselves, you on the other hand are speaking up for people who choose to turn a blind eye to the atrocities leading up to the meal on their plate. just my 2 cents. -Clinton
Here is my opinion on this… this band sucked when they first came out, and they will suck again. One armed scissor was 1 of the worse songs i have ever heard. The vocalist says absolute nonsense over mediocre music. and people fucking bought it!!!!
Fuck reunions!!! the only reason a band should reunite after an extended period of time is for some sort of benefit. If you have to support your coke habit, i don’t know, maybe get a job?
remember the “last show” you guys played remember all the kids that showed up? remember all the heart felt good byes? soooo “take back” i suppose? real nice.This goes for all the bands that decide to do a reunion…
sure, i’ll be that guy. just my opinion… i’m probably the only 1 with it.. it has always been my opinion of reunion shows. sooo oh well.
straight edge but not vegan?! can you be the one without the other?
i’ve been thinking about this all fucking day. i don’t know why, but it popped into my head on the way to work today. my mind had been on 11 for the past few days… ugh. stressed the fuck out…
Maybe before you run out and get a straight edge tattoo or make every piece of clothing you own straight edge related…you should maybe give it a few years. it’s gonna take a pretty big black cat to cover that thick black “X” tattoo. maybe i’m too old for this shit or maybe i’m just grumpy but it sucks that i’m lumped in with a bunch of 16 year olds because i was straight edge when they were learning to walk.
but on the same note i feel the same way about veganism. i don’t want to be associated with anyone just because we have 1 belief in common. chances are it’s the only one…
me = grumpy old man.
So i’m scrolling through my dashboard… and i keep seeing pictures of hardcore bands playing and straight this and that… and i just get pissed off. i guess i’m just bitter, old, and jaded. but i do, i just get annoyed. i don’t think “that looks fun” or “wow, those kids are having a good time” i think “what the fuck? more hc bullshit” and “what the fuck do i have in common with these kids” it’s weird working on my new room i thought “fuck, i think i’m giving up on hardcore and straight edge” not selling out, cause that shit is for fuckers… but i don’t even know what to do… i’m forever branded as a hc kid… fuck.
why am i even writing this?
