So I’m a DJ now

Yeah that’s right. I totally DJed a set at the most recent Blues dance here in Atlanta. As it was my first time DJing ever, I only had an hour to play. General consensus? Everyone loved my set! I’ll admit I was a bit nervous…I imagine it’d suck as a DJ to be playing a set and have no one dancing. The horror.

Anyways, if you’re curious, I’ve turned my set into a spotify playlist, which you can access if you have an account.

Otherwise, here’s a track list

Like a leaf clings to a tree…

…Oh, my darling, cling to me.

 


ink.

I’ve admired tattoos for quite a while now. Or at least, ones that are done well. I like how they can say a lot about the person who has them. Me, I’ve just never had anything very meaningful enough that I’d want it permanently etched into my skin.

Until now.

I mean, it’s pretty simple. Nothing too exciting – a line of text, but it’s from a play that I’ve carried with me for a long time. And for some reason, today I suddenly thought I might like this idea as a tattoo. Where, and how though? No clue. Do I even really want it? Well, I’ll give myself maybe 6 months, and if I still want it by then, well, fuck, I’ll do it.


“…He who posseses sexuality is assumed a predator.”

“… [the] point is that popular culture sets up this idea that men are sexual predators who need to resort to trickery and cologne to fulfill their one and only mission, which is sticking their penis in a girl.
It’s sad. It’s insulting. And it’s damaging.”

“This way of looking at male sexuality conflates sexuality with predation. It means that he who posseses sexuality is assumed a predator.”
