What are you supposed to do when you are in a relationship, a good one, but you miss someone that was in your life romantically before? I fucking miss her and I know she’ll be home soon for the holidays, if she isn’t here already. I’d love to see her and go out but I’m afraid my girlfriend will not be happy. Ugh. I just want to know how she is and to see her again.
I am not sure that this has ever been made about to anyone really, since everyone is living so blindly to the fact that: humans do not exist, or live their lives, to please one another.

“Societies in which women have lots of autonomy and authority tend to be decidedly male-friendly, relaxed, tolerant, and plenty sexy. Got that, fellas? If you’re unhappy at the amount of sexual opportunity in your life, don’t blame the women. Instead, make sure they have equal access to power, wealth and status. Then watch what happens.”—Cacilda Jethá, Sex at Dawn: The Prehistoric Origins of Modern Sexuality (via feministwithapenis)
Jen would have been 23 today. The two things that I learned from knowing her that can be applied to all of us is to love and express love freely and secondly to wear your seat belt. She would be here celebrating today if she had put her seat belt on. Please do both, friends.
My daughter, aged seven, walked out of the bathroom last night after her shower. She looked said in a somber voice “I’m 53 pounds. I’m heavy.” She pointed to a miniscule bit of her belly. I spent a good 20 minutes going over what I’m sure I’ll have to drill into her head for the rest of my time as…
This year I’ve seen the following live: Wilco, Deerhoof, of Montreal, Jeff Mangum, Radiohead, tUnE-yArDs, St. Vincent and David Bazan (thanks Marivy).
Before we call it quits on this year, you can add the following to that list: Sigur Ros (in San Francisco and Iceland), Beck, Stevie Wonder, Grandaddy, and Sharon Van Etten. I have tickets to Outside Lands Festival in SF in August and today, I purchased my Iceland Airwaves festival tickets.
2012 will easily be the best year of my life for live music.
