Be Funkier Today!

April 23, 2016

Just a friendly reminder that funk isn’t just a genre of music, it is a lifestyle decision. Funk can be the way you carry yourself through life. Being square is for, well, squares. Dig within and tap into the trippy joy within you. Every day, it can be helpful to ask yourself, “What can I do to be funkier today?” Listen to that internal voice and let it guide you to a different view of yourself.

Yesterday was International Women’s Day. Shouldn’t every day be International Women’s Day? Women are at the top of the mountain of life. Shout out to all of the inspiring women that are beasting it hardcore everyday.

Hooping at the Indie Rock Show.

February 14, 2016

Hooping

Hooping isn’t just limited to raves and jam band shows anymore. Many white people enjoy hooping in diverse scenarios During indie rock band Marian Hill‘s set in Kansas City on Friday, a fan tried to hoop to the sax-laced tunes. Some music is not easy for hooping. A+ for effort though. A nice change of pace from most fans at indie shows that just look at their feet and try to act unimpressed.

Udder Mayhem at the Floozies.

Udder

Holy cow! It was udder mayhem at the Floozies Kansas City show last night. This raving cow milked the show for all it was worth. It was a high steaks night. Some of the crowd had some beef with him. However, no fights broke out. It was an act of bovine intervention.

Chill

It was a real zoo at the show. The penguins at the zoo recently started walking outside. This chill bro made an epic trek to go raving. It’s great to see the penguins beasting hardcore. I also had a friend of mine come up and greet me with a “suh dude” in public. This was a first for me and terrified me to the very core of my being. It made my soul cry. Quality rave funk jams last night. I learned a lot about my culture and white people.

The Floozies, Midland Theatre 2/13/16

The Floozies brought a sprawling set of rave funk jams to the Midland Saturday night. The concert was like a fusion of a jam band show and a rave in the best way possible. The Lawrence-based duo also brought a massive production which really added to the show. The hard partying crowd was grooving all night. Here are some photos and videos of my evening diving deep into the face-melting world of rave funk.

Bad Hyper Irony: The WORDS ON A STICKER Sticker.

WORDS ON A STICKER Sticker.

I walked into my local hip/ironic shop the other day. I saw a product that made seething anger rise up inside of me. The “WORDS ON A STICKER” sticker made my brain hurt. Are these supposed to be funny? The only thing that gets me angrier than seeing stickers like these is when I have a weak wifi signal.

Why do phrases like these make me so mad? It’s because they are trying so damn hard to be ironic that the phrases wind up being pointless and stupid. It’s like some bad attempt at hyper irony.

Who is the target market for these? Are they a hot seller? Who sees these and says, “OMG, I really need this in my life!” Would you buy the “WORDS ON A STICKER” sticker? What the hell do they even mean? You get a free brain aneurysm with purchase of this sticker.

“The TV makes me so angry, I don’t even know what to do.”

February 6, 2016

“I’ve maybe turned on the TV twice since I’ve been home. The TV makes me so angry, I don’t even know what to do,” said the frustrated white girl seated in back of me tonight at my local coffeeshop. One day, I hope she finds a way to solve her problem. I pray that she is granted reprive from the weight of this issue that bares heavy on her soul.

Barista or Tweaker?

February 6, 2016

There is a barista competition in Kansas City this week. Lots of shaky, jittery people in town right now.

At first, I thought they were just the regular downtown tweakers and bath salt smokers. However, I then realized most were wearing flannel. “Nice ironic beard, Shaky McShakerson.”

I had also forgotten that the folk conference isn’t until the end of the month. The main difference between the barista convention and the folk conference is that the folky folks are carrying a banjo. #whitepeopleproblems #firstworldproblems
