Sleater-Kinney - Bury Our Friends
my horoscope did not warn me about this week
When you thought you got over an issue but you actually just repressed it
two gif versions (sans audio) of the animations made for my installation show back in September. documentation finally complete:
Happening Now (10.8.14): Oh dear God, not again. Another life lost in St Louis. So little information right now, but it seems that an unarmed 18-year old boy was tased then shot 16 times by an officer, possibly off-duty. Not clear what provoked the event, but I’ll keep you updated as info is released. #staywoke #blacklivesmatter
Be weary of the police reports so far. ALL witness statements seem to contradict it, but the police refuse to interview any of them. They seem to be concocting a story right now to cover for the officer. It’s looking real grim right now.

El Águila Ciega
at a local bar last night I was approached by an older man who kept forcing conversation uncomfortably on me. i didn’t want to be ‘rude’ and nodded when he talked about the band that was playing,
after isolating me from my cluster of friends he asked me if I identified myself as a feminist.
i said yes, and he responded saying how odd that is because not a lot of women these days do. I guess I’m not like all women I responded through gritted teeth. he leaned close and told me I was beautiful and in the same breath asked me if i was born as a man.
I said, I don’t feel safe please stop talking to me.
“Oh I’m sorry, you’re just so tall…”
a friend refused to meet us all at the bar just an hour before because they did not want to walk the 4 blocks alone.
