This little Lady Moon is pissed that it’s 5:30am and Niko still isn’t in bed yet.
Niko and I are out tonight with coffee and studies. I’m going through this massive crockpot cook book and removing everything that involves ham, pork, and soup mixes (kuz ew) and studying Greek. Niko is almost done with his quarter and then (at the end of the week) we are heading home for the holidays. ^ _ ^
No (sham)Poo Day 9: My hair is so oily, I had to put an antimacassar on my couch
if you have an issue with indigenous people hunting as a way of life/surviving/maintaining their cultures, you don’t understand shit about how colonialism and capitalism work to erase indigenous people and their cultures by turning hunting/killing into a sport rather than a means of survival or a cultural practice.
hunting is not inherently wrong and if you think so you’re probably a white vegan with minimal understanding of anything but the militant vegan agenda
Today I went to our local library’s book sale to get some holiday gifts. My eldest sister is a very devout Christian and after our religious quarrels, I thought maybe I could reach out and give her young child a bible story book for Christmas. But I couldn’t seem to find any that didn’t involve betrayal, murder, genocide, warfare, execution… so I went with a cute little nativity picture book. During my quest, a woman asked me about my tshirt.
She said, “I understand if someone doesn’t believe in his teachings, but to be AGAINST Christ?” She literally did not understand why someone would be opposed to Christianity.
I told her that Behemoth is a Death Metal band from Poland, and in Poland- they have a state religion, and that means that if anyone speaks out against the church, they can be arrested. I told her that the singer from this band WAS arrested and may be going to prison for making his music which opposes the state religion of Catholicism.
As soon as I said the words, “death metal” she understood. Which is kinda annoying since death metal is about death and it’s the black metal aspect of Behemoth that makes them antichristian, but whatever this California idiot didn’t need a lesson in metal genre.
It’s interesting that as soon as music, specifically extreme metal is mentioned, even the most ignorant people understand SOMETHING about what is going on. “oh, it’s just music” or “everyone should have ARTISTIC freedom” (not political or economic freedom, mind you- just the freedom to complain about oppression, not to actually vanquish it) or “well that’s just their IMAGE” and “they don’t ACTUALLY BELIEVE that… it’s just to sell records.” which is the exact thing I worry about when Americans (especially in LA) talk about metal.
