I wish I was in a band. Currently trying to learn guitar, maybe I'll do open mics/go solo until I can find people to jam out with.

I wish I could go to more concerts. I live in a shitty conservative southern town and wish I lived in a city or closer to one so gas wouldn't be an issue going to concerts.

I wish it was January so I could move out and go to university in Denton.

Personally, I think even the looters have been getting a bad rap and this Jacobin piece does a good job at explaining why.

That is indeed a great article. I like this bit: "Smith identifies what so many self-styled anti-racists and leftists fail to understand — that racism is not an issue of moral character. He recognizes that the broader economic order facilitates and benefits from racial subjugation, and so he's looking for ways to intervene and disrupt that process. "

Also the bit about someone leaving a sign near the QT... I think this says something about how people treat corporations "like people", even in the midst of a protest that is about the death of a person.  Feeling empathetic for the QT rather than for the looters who are angry about how this case has been treated, are angry at police violence.
Speaking of Evan Greer, anyone know what happened to the Riot Folk Collective? I don't know if they're still alive or what but the website isn't there anymore. I used to listen to Evan Greer, Mark Gunnery, and Ryan Harvey's stuff in high school.

Phil Ochs is definitely underrated... When I show his stuff to other people, they think of Pete Seeger. I heard "Love Me, I'm A Liberal" after Greer covered it then got more into his discography earlier this year when the local progressive radio station was talking of William Worthy's passing and played "Ballad of William Worthy." Great music.
