Like deconstructing cops and reading Derrida…ON THE MOON.
Fucked Up /// “Queen Of Hearts” /// David Comes To Life
Don’t let the lyrics fool you; this song is actually about guitars.
Oh man does Unborn Whiskey ever like this.

When I got back to the ice cream factory after dropping Fallie off at beekeeping camp, I found an ice cold Red Rock Golden Ginger Ale sitting on my desk courtesy of Lync, my coworker and fellow snack industry mercenary. Sometimes it’s good to be a gangster.
It’s true. Unborn Whiskey liked this.

i ate a peach
it didn’t last
this place cannot be heaven.
Dead at the tender age of four. We still miss you, Tom.
Not to get all William Safire on you guys, but I’m noticing some very misguided uses of the word “swagger.” Merriam-Webster tells me its “popularity” is on the rise, reaching the “red hot” zone, from what I can tell. I blame Shakespeare and Soulja Boy.
I’m adding it to my personal “Words We Don’t Say” list, because if the dude-itors can have one, so can chicks on Tumblr.
Also, here’s a link to the definitions. You’re welcome.
I’ve worked in science and engineering in some way for most of my adult life. Different science types see their jobs in different ways. Here is how I see myself: It is my job to think of things a generation before they will become important or needed, and try to do a half-decent job of working through them.
I have a friend from college who became a doctor. Some time after my grad school and his medical school we were having a beer, catching up, and I asked him how things had been.
“I get to help a lot of people, and that’s good. When you’re first learning, in school, you make a lot of mistakes though. And when you make a mistake, someone could die.”
He had this faraway look saying that, and I felt jealous. When you’re a super-serious scientist like I am, you could talk yourself into a narrative of how important what you do is. Sure, you’re trying to save the world, but let’s not get carried away. Helping people, and dealing with life and death like a doctor does is something my job doesn’t involve. Compared to being a doctor, what I do is just not a big deal.
That doesn’t mean I can’t have opinions about how medicine treats people. But I should proceed with some humility. My first assumption about medicine is that if the people doing it are having some problems, there is very little chance that a tossed-off opinion of mine is going to set it all straight.
