In-A-Gadda-Da-Vida - Single Version

I bought this record at a swap meet in Imperial Valley when I was a teenager.
My mom told me that they thought it was witchcraft when she was young and started singing. I love thinking of my mom as a teen, loving music and rebellion in the seventies, before she knew about her disorder, before she lost her first child, before all the burdens of her life came pressing down on her.

I had to buy it.

And the vendors loved me. I flipped through their crates of records while they told me about music and youth. I imagined them twenty years younger, without their bellies and long beards, but maybe with a little more mischief. I hoped that one day I would have good memories of youth to recall and share with the next generation.

I will always associate this song with desert, leathery skinned vagabonds, and transience of youth.

you a bitch

It’s called copula deletion, or zero copula. Many languages and dialects, including Ancient Greek and Russian, delete the copula (the verb to be) when the context is obvious.

So an utterance like “you a bitch” in AAVE is not an example of a misused you, but an example of a sentence that deletes the copular verb (are), which is a perfectly valid thing to do in that dialect, just as deleting an /r/ after a vowel is a perfectly valid thing to do in an upper-class British dialect.

What’s more, it’s been shown that copula deletion occurs in AAVE exactly in those contexts where copula contraction occurs in so-called “Standard American English.” That is, the basic sentence “You are great” can become “You’re great” in SAE and “You great” in AAVE, but “I know who you are” cannot become “I know who you’re” in SAE, and according to reports, neither can you get “I know who you” in AAVE.

In other words, AAVE is a set of grammatical rules just as complex and systematic as SAE, and the widespread belief that it is not is nothing more than yet another manifestation of deeply internalized racism.

can there please be some kind of online exchange where trans boys can give their old clothes to trans girls and vice versa? does that exist? if not am i allowed to start one because holy wow that would be the bomb diggety

can this happen

THERE IS ACTUALLY A BLOG FOR THIS NOW

and cis people can also donate clothes, because that gives people a bigger pool to get clothes from and it’s one of the ways that we can be active allies for our trans siblings

To the girls who were hitchhiking through the central California desert when I was nineteen or twenty:

I hope your travels were pleasant.
I hope you got to your destination safely.
I hope you have beautiful stories to tell.
I hope I touched your life the way you touched mine.
I remember your voice shouting “thank you!” From across the highway.
I wish I could’ve given you more than trail mix and water.
I wish I could know you’re okay.
I wish I could be as brave and adventurous as you.
I wish I trusted the world enough to care for you, and that when my memory finds you in the middle of the night, I would feel happiness instead of worry.

You made me wonder a lot that day. I actually haven’t stopped. Maybe I never will.

It’s my turn to thank you.

You showed me there is a world of possibility in living simply and humbly. You showed me it’s possible to have faith in the world.

I’m still trying to emulate you, and I only knew you for five minutes.

Imagine Jensen sitting in a waiting room and there’s another man sitting opposite him. The receptionist comes out and says, “Dean?” and both Jensen and the other guy start to get up and then look at each other and Jensen’s just like “Oh, God, not again” and sits back down covering his face.

I found this and I still think it’s hilarious
