yeah, i wouldn’t be interested in this post, either.

so i made -Z- a mixtape for her birthday. and since she put that other one on here, i’ll put one of mine on here, too. i do not think it’s particularly interesting, but whatever. what i was trying to do with the songs was find some good songs that take us back to some nights when we made some bad decisions, some good songs to remind her what excellent musical taste i have, and finally some pop songs that i hate but are, for some reason, insanely popular. those are to remind her that she’s not as cool as she thinks she is. unfortunately, i was unable to find any acceptable songs mentioning ferrets, so i stuck a cat song on there instead.

the playlist and a VIDEO!, if you care, after the jump. Continue reading



Rihanna is just as stupid as any normal girl by maria b.
this hairdo: actually NOT the worst decision she ever made.

this hairdo: actually NOT the worst decision she ever made.

so, i hear that she’s back with that douche-tard Chris Brown. yeah, that Chris Brown, the same one that smacked the shit out of her (something that the gentlemen of Classic America in the 1950’s/1960’s never would have done.*) sooooo…. good luck with that.

This Guy’s Blog is Making My Eyes Bleed. -Z- by -Z-

Ugh

I don’t know how I came across this guy’s blog, but I did, and it’s been driving me mad.  Part of me thinks it’s a joke, because how can such narrow-minded out-dated 50’s throwbacks still exist? This is 2009! We’ve been engaged in the Women’s Movement for decades now!

I just spent a significant amount of time responding to a post of his which discussed why social ideologies regarding women/sex/social norms made women better off 50 years ago. Here is the post, including my commentary on it at the bottom. It took everything I had to not spazz out at him… I hope that a logical and calm discussion could encourage someone with what I deem to be narrow-minded  ideology to rethink their positions.

I’m a bit exhausted though….all his posts are along the same ridic vein.  I can’t respond to everything.  BUT YOU CAN IF YOU WANT! Also, I’d like to hear thoughts on what’s been expressed via both parties. Is there a strong generational divide on these issues? Or is it just that one random guy in his random parallel universe?

UPDATE: It looks as though my comment is awaiting “moderation”, which means that guy can choose not to let other people read my brilliant feminist commentary. Let’s hope that’s not the case. Read the comment I posted to his blog after the jump!

This is the Valentines CD I made for .m. Now you all can enjoy it! The main reason I’m putting this up here is because I’m already itching to make her another one. I’ve got some songs lined up, but I don’t want to spoil it for her! This CD was originally going to be a snarky CD with either stupid valentiney songs, or snarky bitter songs. It ended up an amalgamation of the two.

  1. “Get Me Away From Here, I’m Dying” ~Belle and Sebastian
  2. “Sexy Can I” ~Ray J ft. Young Berg
  3. “That’s the Way Love Goes” ~Janet Jackson
  4. “Bonafied Lovin'” ~Chromeo
  5. “Let It Go” ~Keyshia Cole ft. Lil Kim & Missy Elliot
  6. “Sex on Fire” ~Kings of Leon
  7. “Turning Me On” ~ Keri Hilson ft Lil Wayne
  8. “Right Now (Na Na Na)” ~Akon
  9. “Switchblade Kitty” ~Lady Tigra
  10. “Bassment Party” ~ The Cool Kids
  11. “Pussy Monster” ~Lil Wayne

So, last night I went out for drinks with some friends. This wasted lame dude was hitting on me (I was the sacrificial goat…so that everyone else could get free shots… “Z, just go over there and be nice to him…say we need some shots”). This exchange got me thinking about some things….

this guy? a misogynist?

this guy? a misogynist?

i’ve read a number of articles and seen it mentioned on a few news networks that a lot of teenaged girls are not only “forgiving” Chris Brown for his “mistake,” but are actually siding with him, subscribing to the belief that Rihanna somehow deserved the beating she got. i don’t even know where to begin with this. i guess my first reaction is that, for most teenaged girls, their parents probably haven’t broached the subject of domestic or dating violence. these girls probably have little or no understanding of the psychology of both the abuser and the victim. that being said, American culture and media are probably where most teenaged girls are getting their ideas of what a romantic relationship should be like and where (and if) to draw the line when it comes to arguments and disrespect.
