While I’m even more devastated by the shooting of Michael Brown (utterly outraged), I just wanted to say something about Robin William’s apparent suicide. As someone whose father took his own life, it does not feel comforting to see any kind of victim-blaming. While I certainly don’t condone suicide, people who struggle with a mental illness (in my dad’s case, he was bipolar and a paranoid schizophrenic) are going through much more than most of us can fathom, and I am strongly displeased by the lack of education in public schools about mental health. I am, however, content with the thought that my dad is somewhere peaceful, and I wish the same for Robin Williams. I prefer not to think negatively of those who have passed, whether I’ve known them on a personal level or not.
Preordered Milo’s first full-length album and I also ordered my favorite album of all-time, Emergency & I by The Dismemberment Plan. It’s a high quality vinyl (special edition) with rare bonus tracks. And I’m getting the new Murakami book, too. I’m freaking out basically. SO MUCH HYPE.
Imagine if the series had ended right after this moment.
I read several dozen stories a year from miserable, lonely guys who insist that women won’t come near them despite the fact that they are just the nicest guys in the world.
..I’m asking what do you offer? Are you smart? Funny? Interesting? Talented? Ambitious? Creative? OK, now what do you do to demonstrate those attributes to the world? Don’t say that you’re a nice guy — that’s the bare minimum.
“Well, I’m not sexist or racist or greedy or shallow or abusive! Not like those other douchebags!”
I’m sorry, I know that this is hard to hear, but if all you can do is list a bunch of faults you don’t have, then back the fuck away..
..Don’t complain about how girls fall for jerks; they fall for those jerks because those jerks have other things they can offer. “But I’m a great listener!” Are you? Because you’re willing to sit quietly in exchange for the chance to be in the proximity of a pretty girl (and spend every second imagining how soft her skin must be)? Well guess what, there’s another guy in her life who also knows how to do that, and he can play the guitar. Saying that you’re a nice guy is like a restaurant whose only selling point is that the food doesn’t make you sick. You’re like a new movie whose title is This Movie Is in English, and its tagline is “The actors are clearly visible”.
