I don’t know how people who aren’t fixated function at all.
Update us as it goes on.

feinbhas-a-ghabhail asked: You weren't kidding about the emotional intensity of that one scene where his ex tells him she's having Forrest Whitaker's baby. It's been a minute since I saw something that painfully real on a film. Like a punch to the gut.
The movie could suck balls and still get a passing grade from me for that scene alone.

Anonymous asked: Could images' mercenary sea be their next fell? I really really loved fell but was super bummed they killed it off
That’s fairly normal. A pretty big chunk of Image books don’t make it to their planned final issue.

Anonymous asked: I see "retard" the same as "lame." In their actual contexts they mean the same thing, but colloquially they're nothing to care about.
People living with ambulatory disabilities haven’t been referred to as ‘lame’ in a very long time. It’s not a clinical term with meaning, at least not anymore.
Likewise, ‘crazy’ is not a clinical term with meaning.
'Retarded' very much is.
So, calling someone retarded is using a specific disability as an insult.
For that reason, I think it’s inherently delicate.
That said, it’s rare you’ll ever see me police someone’s language. I recognize people may not like everything I say. And I hate to be policed. So, I don’t tell other people how to talk.
I actually think it’s a pretty evil thing to do, telling someone how to talk.

Anonymous asked: Yo. I was talking to my cousin and somehow this band came up and he told me you had once broke your dick. Can you tell the story?
I was having sex with a woman. She pulled away, I slid out just enough that when she slammed back down, my dick hitting the space between her vagina and ass broke my dick.
It was dope.

Anonymous asked: Thoughts on the band Whirr calling their fans "p*ssy" and "r*tard" on their Facebook page?
I didn’t see them call their fans anything. I saw they called a guy at Pitchfork a pussy. Though, I’ve heard retard was used.
I don’t have a feeling on the word ‘pussy’ as I call at least 30 people a day ‘fucking dickheads.’ What’s the difference?
Of all the words used in english, ‘retard’ is the only one I bristle at. It hurts my ears.
But, even I don’t care about this.
Someone responded in an emotional way to something that doesn’t require it. Story of people under 30. Not much to lose sleep over.

Anonymous asked: That dude is a good troll
Solid trolling. Not giving away the full gag yet. Going hard, but staying within the realm of reason. Building.
We have a professional here.

Anonymous asked: you're right, there's crossover and there's always shitty and valuable artists, but then why talk about the shitty ones? think about science or languages. if we stopped learning for a generation, those understandings would be lost. it's the same with art. valuable ways of understanding drop further away every time someone talks about how othello is about race issues. or details the shallow version of profundity that a scott cooper movie gives them. i dont mean to attack you or your podcast...
You could shoot me twenty ‘great’ pieces of art, and I could shoot 100 holes in each. The ‘great’ agreed upon by intellectuals is no different than the ‘great’ agreed upon by Kanye West listeners and Damian Hirst fans. It’s a groupthink that has no connection to reality.
This doesn’t require any evidence, you can see it with your own eyes over time, every time. What we consider brilliant now will likely be passe in the future.
My favorite fine artist has had periods where everyone agreed he was brilliant, everyone agreed he was a hack, everyone agreed he was racist, and back to everyone agreeing he was a genius and an innovator.
Don’t fall too deeply in love with the college version of great art. I assure you it will not last.

Anonymous asked: Is doing something solely because it is "fulfilling" even a real thing? Or is it always (consciously or subconsciously) tied to getting money and/or ass?
Normally, I’d be a cynic here.
But from years and years of playing music with zero hope of money or ass, I can confirm that fulfilling is a thing.
