"My doctrine is this: that if we see cruelty or wrong that we have the
power to stop, and we do nothing, we make ourselves sharers in the
guilt."

68. David Wojnarowicz (1954-1992)
"All my life I’ve made things that are like fragmented mirrors of what I perceive to be the world. As far as I’m concerned the fact that in 1990 the human body is still a taboo subject is unbelievably ridiculous. What exactly is so frightening about the human body?"  David Wojnarowicz—high school dropout, one-time hustler, and celebrated artist of the 1980’s—was one of the first artists to emerge from the East Village in the early part of the Reagan era.  Over the course of his career, the artist grew increasingly political, suing (and beat) the anti-pornography American Family Association for misappropriating his images.  Even eighteen years after his death he managed to cause a furor, when someone from the Smithsonian decided to pull his A Fire In My Belly video from the Hide/Seek show in late 2010.

The Weak Days – Has Anyone Gotten An Angry Text From Ron Yet? (100 plays)

adequateantics:

My band released our first EP ever yesterday on Running Around Records„ and this is arguably my favorite track on it. I originally wrote what would later become this almost two years ago while driving down to THE FEST, and it’s easily the most personal song I’ve ever written. Though I’m in love with every song on the album, this is the one I’m proudest of.

If loud, harmony-filled punk/emo sounds like something you’d be into, please take a few seconds and check us out. I’d love to know what you think, and our EP is available for free download on Bandcamp.

"I breathe the sweet breath Which comes forth from thy mouth. I behold thy beauty every day. It is my desire That I may be rejuvenated With life through love Of thee. Give me thy hands, holding thy spirit. that I may receive it and may live by it. Call thou upon my name unto eternity And it shall never fail."
