Using the “PC Hammer”

There’s no better way to weasel out of a discussion than saying “You’re just being PC!” People hide their ugly and stupid beliefs by saying “That’s just PC man, fuck that!”

No, I do not mean that you have to sanitize your language but own up when you say something. This idiot, Josh Homme, frontman of Queens of the Stone Age, just launched the word “faggot” like there was no tomorrow.He’s rightfully getting a lot of flack for it. But instead of penning a nice mea culpa, he sends out an ugly statement that a 12 year old might pen. He wrote:

By that logic… I also told that young whipper snapper I’d have anal sex with him… how can I possibly reconcile these opposing viewpoints? I called him a pussy too. Does it mean I hate our one worlds’ collective vagina? I never have been nor intend to be politically correct. That’s your cross to bear. To me, that PC world would suck more shit than the porta-potty truck at Glastonbury. Homophobic? I’m in Queens of the Stone Age for crissake… You say, “So. Your band name doesn’t prove anything.” Maybe not. But it’s a helluv a lot more definitive than the logic of some watchdog… (sorry canine-American, canine-European, canine-African, canine-Australian & canine-Asian) moralist, keeping score from pure perfectionville?

You see what he was trying to do? Deflate a real argument about using such powerful words that reflect such pure hatred. No one wants to stifle his verbal diarrhea, keep doing it idiot, I’m just not buying any more of your music.

Would Mr. Homme have used the n-word when insulting the guy who threw that shoe?

Baltimore is Reeaaal

This last Saturday we headed to Baltimore with a couple of friends. We first headed to American Visionary Art Museum to check out a PostSecret exhibit. The museum was aaaiiight but the real jewel was the museum store. The museum store was quite possibly the kitchiest place I’ve ever seen. There were so may things I almost bought but decided I had squeezed out all delight by merely holding them.

We also went to a magical place called The Book Thing where we dropped off some books we no longer wanted and came back with lots of books we did want. I came back with:

  • The Age of Absolutism by Max Beloff,
  • InDesign Killer Tips by Kelby and White, and
  • LaTeX, A User’s Guide and Reference Manual by Leslie Lamport.

Baltimore… is an interesting city. And as if the Baltimore overload wasn’t enought we also started watching The Wire.

Apollyon

And the shapes of the locusts were like unto horses prepared unto battle; and on their heads were as it were crowns like gold, and their faces were as the faces of men. And they had hair as the hair of women, and their teeth were as the teeth of lions. And they had breastplates, as it were breastplates of iron; and the sound of their wings was as the sound of chariots of many horses running to battle. And they had tails like unto scorpions, and there were stings in their tails: and their power was to hurt men five months. And they had a king over them, which is the angel of the bottomless pit, whose name in the Hebrew tongue is Abaddon, but in the Greek tongue hath his name Apollyon.
