Anonymous asked: why are u shitting on the beatles??
I WANT YOU (SHE'S SO HEAVY)
Is the only really good Beatles song. Most of the rest are either boring pop songs, sonic evidence of John’s social deterioration, or written by Ringo.
HOT HOT HEAT
So did I tell you that I found an incredibly important* document at the archive a couple days ago? Yeah, I did. I found the passage permit for my guy signed by my other guy which proves their direct link and validates my entire thesis.** Since I just now got my funding in, I think I’m going to go celebrate with a nice glass of local wine.*** * Importance is relative ** I’m trying to...
Photos from the attempts to “clear out” protesters in Barcelona. Spanish police—both the regular and the Guardia Civil—have a well-deserved reputation for alternating wildly and unpredictably between not giving a fuck at all, and cracking people’s skulls for no reason. Click on them, share them, show the world what Spanish police will do on the flimsy excuse of...

THAT BAKERY CALLED AMERICA WOULDN'T STAND FOR THIS...
Just saw an American ask a local nun to pose for a picture. In English. As if she were a mascot at Disney World. What an insensitive ass.* *Nonetheless this guy must have cojones of steel; Sevillana nuns are scary. There’s a convent near the archive that sells artisan candies and I went with a friend to get some a couple years ago—she’d been going on about it for weeks and I...
AMERICA: THIS TIME, IT'S FROSTED
clientsfromhell: A young couple who had just moved from China contacted me to do a brochure for their bakery they were opening. He introduced himself as ‘Will Smith’. And she introduced herself simply as ‘Cupcake’. I kid you not, they wanted to call the bakery “America”. I hated every single Chinese-made sweet I’ve ever had (because I am a fussy baby), but I’d still go to America...
Fall under spells?
In 18 hours, I’ll be settled in my Alameda apartment. Alone in a city I associate with never being alone. This is going to be fun, isn’t it?

WHY WOULD THEY COME TO OUR CONCERT JUST TO BOO US?
The other day I dreamed that I won a prize—namely, that I could have an exclusive meeting with Simon, or Garfunkel. Not both. I had to pick one. The entire dream was me agonizing over which one I’d choose. I didn’t even get to enjoy the prize. I don’t even like Art Garfunkel. This would literally not be a problem, and that’s assuming that I care enough about Paul...
