FUCK I am so pissed the fuck off.

I haven’t eaten since breakfast at 6am and all I want to do is get Pizza at the place I do when I do on my night bike rides. But FUCK it has to be Friday and the fucking party douches are out like never before all around the bars & clubs up the street but people all around the whole area like a street festival especially the street that comes out next to the Pizza place. I don’t give a fuck what people would tell me to do anyway, the Pizza place inside is probably jammed itself wayyy beyond my tolerance for any fucking place any fucking time. And I put up enough with large groups of party cuntfucks every night of the week thinking its so hilarious to harass people on their bikes and even just walking through I stick out like a bitch because I’m not dressed in douche uniform.

This is irritability from not sleeping, not eating, and hay fever season much worse than last, itchy eyes, itchy throat, wind blowing my allergen soaked hair all over my fucking eyes, none of which I will let keep me indoors this time of year.

There was one pretty chill thing that happened a little earlier that’ll post some pictures of.

But seriously, if you are one of these people who like going out to these crowded street areas to get your high by the pathetic get laid olympics lubricant alcohol you can really please go FuhFuhFuhckinngg FUCK yourself.

I hope there is another shooting up in that bitchhole. I would not mind seeing some bodies drop.

Ultimately it comes down to I’d rather starve than be around any of that shit right now.

After Michael Brown’s shooting in Ferguson, the opinion departments of Guardian US and the St Louis Post-Dispatch partnered to gather readers’ stories from around the world of being racially profiled by police. Our hope is that this sampling will help spur empathy – and then action, everywhere.

Wow, I had no idea The Guardian editorial board was so free willed with the extent of their subjective political perspectives. That’s good in many cases. Especially #Ferguson

Looks pretty boss. I have obviously not been to Honk Kong or anything. I have not been overseas whatsoever anyways. Not to be resentful of my mother, I am grateful for everything she’s done. But I was raised by someone who was fearful of the rest of the world, and the world outside her reach and control overall. Even though her and her husband’s, my stepfather, combined net worth puts them probably in the U.S. top 5%, and possibly even top 1% there wasn’t even a seed of an idea to expose their children at least a tiny little bit to the rest of the world through travel. To be able to visit foreign countries as a child is certainly a rare privilege though and obviously I’m not the only one in the U.S. to be raised without consideration for that parenting principle.

There was a literally one second flash of the word entropy during this last episode of the Leftovers from when Jill is doing some kind of school project or something. The O in it are arrows pointing every direction. If the main idea in this show isn’t about the supernatural phenomenon at the plot’s center but really just that the natural tendency of life is to be lost and go/get out of [your] control, then I can get behind that. Somethings I didn’t like about this show but I thought the flash of that word, one word to encompass the totality of the direction of dramatic events in the show was pretty neat. I remember how cool I thought the idea of entropy was when I learned it in my high school science class around the same time I was getting into all crazy ideas and taking LSD for the first times.

Posting this picture to make a point that is counter to what has been presented by the Mainstream Media as well as by Law Enforcement Authorities when it comes to the protests in Ferguson, last week, and earlier this week.Their point was that people like this among the protester clashes with Police were outside agitators, often from out of town, and set on only provoking more clashes and pursuing violence. While may there are few small groups of people with that mindset, what is also happening in this picture and others like it is a defiance of the law enforcement and their instructions. In many ways, and in my opinion, for the most part, this is akin to civil disobedience. Unlike how the MSM and the Law presents these young kids as independent of the protests over the injustice of the killing of Mike Brown, it is far more true that they are directly related to that protest, and in many ways more relevant to the outrage felt by that community and all the ones like it across the United States who are over-policed and their populations of young black men are over-incarcerated.The calm and obedient organizers of protests that are usually much older than the ages of those like Michael Brown and those appearing in photos like this, and they are their mothers, fathers, and grandparents. Of course it is relevant to them as they care about the future of their young loved ones, and they don’t want to see them fall victim to the overhanded police reaction to petty criminal activity or completely innocent activity as just being a BMW, Black Male Walking. But is it their outrage that is the most relevant, that ironically comes in the form of peaceful demonstration and polite requesting of redress of their grievances? In my opinion I don’t think so. It seems to me that the feelings of the young, who take the brunt of implicitly racist, and even explicitly racist policing, who have the least opportunity for positive future. It is in their feelings where the real outrage over their situation resides. It is them who find themselves most frustrated over the status quo of mistrust of law enforcement. as they are treated by them as objects of fear and even less than human. Whether consciously in explicit racist attitudes of cops or subconsciously with implicit racism the police approach them as those objects of fear and being less than human, where the choice in reaction to confrontation with young black men and even women is easily made as shoot to kill. There is no second guessing the action of use of utmost force when a cop believes their safety may be in danger. All of that plays into why, the young protesters are easily outraged to the point of perhaps violence or at least complete disobedience towards the instruction of law enforcement. To me it seems to stem from a place where there appe be such little little hope that such attitudes of law enforcement will change, and how they are treated by the Justice System in what is now becoming known to activists as the New Jim Crow will change also. The young black kids of Ferguson especially when all of this national attention dies down, will once again find themselves in a mostly black town with virtually all white government, all white law enforcement, a Police Department that acted with 0 transparency in reaction to the shooting of 6 bullets into an unarmed black 18 year old. A police department that in the immediate aftermath of that shooting did absolutely everything that would suggest they were fully aware they did something wrong, and that they were going to do everything they could to hide the information around that incident and protect the officer did did the wrong. With all that said and then some we should realize that these so called “bad actors” and “outside agitators” were actually at the core of the protest reaction to the shooting of Michael Brown, because it is about more than just that one incident, it is everything about how the law has treated them as less than human and how impossibly hard it is for such a reality to change with so many in this country being apathetic about it, and that ignites such a deep frustration and hopelessness that they feel they have no choice but to act out on. It is more than understandable, and instead of casting them out as irrelevant and just the nasty criminal element, we should strive to understand and have dialogue about this. It is easy for us whites when we are stopped by police for what might seem like suspicious behavior or a violation of law, to be more respectable towards them and cooperate. But when you are part of social class in this country where the frequency of such stops is significantly higher for far more petty and completely normal behavior, it is easy, at least in my eyes, to see why there is such a strong urge to resist cooperating with a law enforcement approach that assumes you to be of a criminal class, an object of fear, and less than human.

This has been one of the more disturbing aspects the the tensions between Protesters and Police in Ferguson. It was a huge aspect in the first few days after the killing of Michael Brown, but then the State Highway Patrol was brought in, led by Captain Ron Johnson, a community member of Ferguson and someone who has actually marched with protesters in the daytime, and has been allied with local community leaders like clergy and elected officials. But there was only was one day of relative peace with him in command, where looting and other property damage did occur and was not addressed by law enforcement. Then the next day and then on, police started to engage protesters who they deemed to be out of control, and thus they shoot their tear gas and rubber bullets, another point of escalation in the conflict. And further in response to the chaos on the main street in Ferguson, law enforcement, particularly the same department that was originally in control, started to once again raise their weapons and point them at the whole group of protesters. So that was a turning point back towards the original militarized stance they took towards protesters. That was the past couple nights, but tonight seems to be different once again. Reporters on the ground have said that every night has had a different vibe. And tonight, there have not been any clashes or any particular protesters acting up, throwing stuff. Just large protest groups moving along down the sidewalks and chanting “Who are we?… Mike Brown” or “Hands up….don’t shoot.” One chant has been noticeably absent “No justice, no peace.” However, whenever police form lines and gear up near protesters, they seem to reach a heightened sense of tension. It’s situations like that that can become stand offs, provoking protesters to act out, disobey police instruction, and clash in the form of bottles thrown, and in more extreme cases Molotov cocktails. One thing is for sure, the situation is always tense and complex. At this point protesters and police alike are thoroughly annoyed with the media presence. Which I think is unfair, because that is an attitude of this situation being in its own little bubble of conflict only relevant to them. But the overpolicing of black community, and their over incarceration, and the brutalities against them are a nation wide issue that the press should cover.

Suggestion: Ferguson protesters should form a conga line in the Approved Protest Area. Moving, contained, and optically terrible to teargas."

So much has just exploded over the past week, in the eyes of the country as if it were out of nowhere. But for a lot of us it wasn’t, and that’s what has made it particularly piercingly awful. I don’t even know anymore. Except I kind of do, I knew everything I had to say and think to myself throughout this whole ordeal. However, this whole summer of my national consciousness has been a process of learning about my true self, and in that learning how to consciously dissolve some of my own implicitly racist tendencies. Some who may read that may gasp at the idea of myself admitting to “implicit” racism. But the fact that I can attest to mine, and checkpoint the places where I’ve found it, and have changed it, already tells me that you are more implicitly racist than me. But it has all been just so overwhelmingly disheartening, to the point of utter hopelessness, this place’s implicit and explicit problems. Which people have spoken about but have not been heard, which people have then had to yell about to just be crushed. I’d like to end my thoughts of no thoughts to tell you about this pain some of us feel for all of us, but that wouldn’t be fitting for the deeply and profoundly saddening truth of endless injustice despair that is…. THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA.

Off the cuff shooting out of All Along the Watchtower while in a completely strange and strung out state of mind. Definitely not the best I can do, definitely not the best I’ve ever played this song, but definitely the most passionately and with the purest energy from the visceral depths of my mind and soul. The closing with the progression of A minor chord variations is something I came up with earlier in the day.
