queer shoulder to the wheel

thanks to alan for continued inspiration. as i've said before, alan ginsburg must not die. fortunately, his words are eternal.

if only we all were so brave as to put our queer shoulders to the wheel (no homo), i think the world would be a better place. (big up to kid k for being explicit about his politics as a DJ: see in particular the note on X13.)

much as i like to fight for truths and rights worldwide, never mind starting from yard: it's clear that america needs to shake its aching pelvis, too. what's the problem, people? or to put it more directly, what's the deal? for real, they only fuckin'.

original tree-hugger, beat-bugger, dream-smuggler, seen?

big up wayne. positivity and respect are the way to true greatness.

also, you help us keep a clear eye on what is really, actually harmful.. by pointing out that some things only harm assumptions.

"that's why with the loudest, i must suspect something..."

you're such a fuckin typcial drama queen. bout SALEM WITCH HUNT trials!!

Do you really think that you or your opinions are THAT IMPORTANT? got news for you sonny, nobody would care if you were a communist either? you watch too much TV.

If you can't tek the critique then say so, but dont start presenting yourself as some sort of great white victim. It takes away from your self-approved intellectualising of things you clearly don't understand.

As for B.Art. , she spends her time making chalk drawings on the sidewalks at UWI, so dont be s encouraged. The intellectual ghetto is a lost cause.

i wasn't referring to myself re: the witch trials. i was referring to your chilling, threatening question to b.art. how quick the finger-pointing and indicting begins...

believe me, i can tek as much as i can dish--and more. but critique is one thing; spewing hate and making threats is another. me nuh rate dat fuckery.

because this conversation was clearly going nowhere and quickly degenerated into a forum for your anonymous threats and insults, i have had to turn off my comments, which is unfortunate for the rest of us.

find another outlet.

this is my space for putting my thoughts out there, putting my self out there, raising some questions, and offering up ideas. i am aware of the tensions created by my being an "outsider," an "intellectual," an "academic," an "american," and a "white male"--among other things. i do my best to produce work that reflects on my subject position even as it attempts to speak to things that are not "my own." i've done my homework, dude. i'm not naive. i'm passionate, radical, and generous. if this all makes you uncomfortable, don't read.
