Writing a heartfelt note to my ex-girlfriend after almost a year of not talking to her and then crying afterward makes me feel like such a loser. For what it’s worth, I loved her more than I’ve ever loved anything.
I used to always see the end of my twenties as some sort of nightmarish existential clusterfuck or not even making it there, but it’s turning out to be kind of a fucking ball. It’s okay to have fun living.

every so often, whenever i have the pleasure of laundry stacking up on my futon, i specifically carve out a portion of my day to iron; it’s a special activity that i hold incredibly dear. i set up my ironing board parallel to the front windows in my loft, i separate the foldables from the ironables, i put on a record. i sing along with the words as i push my iron back and forth, driving it...

hey, martin douglas! whatever happened to that girl you were talking about in the “pensacola” section of your deerhunter essay? i want to say “who cares?” with almost every fiber in my being. i want to climb to the mountaintops and shout “WHO THE FUCK FUCKING CARES!” for all the world to hear in my nasally, less-than-world-beating voice. but sometimes i still...
Word to Roger Sterling, life is just a series of doors that close behind you.
venetianblinds asked: This is just a Martin Douglas appreciation notice from a girl who has been following you far longer than you've followed me. Happy Spring.
Watch out, world. Life is fun for Martin Douglas again.
i spent my valentine's day in a mental hospital.
wednesday night, i wanted to die again. it sounds like a broken record whenever i talk about wanting to die, but i suppose i catch that desire a little more often than most people. when my thoughts start to form their own little oppressive landscape in my head, the conventional wisdom of there being people who care about me and need me completely leaves my head and i feel so useless to everyone i...
Hope everyone is doing well. Martin Douglas loves you. You should tell me how you’ve been because I miss you.

Race Riot Revisited
So, there was a minor shitstorm (well, in my opinion at least; anything to me that happens exclusively on the Internet is minor) over Chief Keef’s major-label debut, and a lot of it had to do with the ideas of race and cultural tourism. I was asked by Michele Catalano to weigh in on the argument, and parts of it were posted in her piece on the matter for Forbes. After the jump is the uncut...

The good news is I’m feeling better and happier than I have in almost an entire year. That’s awesome, right? The bad news is my Tumblr hiatus (of which I posted the announcement last night and promptly deleted because I’m pretty self-destructive in case you didn’t get the memo) is still in effect, as I’ve decided to take a break from this place until my book is...

liquidiousfleshbag asked: re: your cheese story. When I could still eat cheese, we used to make cheese salad and it was basically just a bowl of shredded cheddar cheese, some tomatoes, and salad dressing. IT WAS AMAZING and I dream about it sometimes.
abloodymess asked: What the hell is my problem?
slowburning replied to your post: Funniest story involving cheese. DRUNKEN GOAT Honestly, if you’ve never had The Drunken Goat, it’ll change your fucking life. It changed my fucking life, and I’m not ashamed to admit it. Also, guys, I’d like to introduce everybody to Meaghan. She’s my IRL best friend and a real peach of a human being. She doesn’t post a...

afrosandprose asked: When I was little I used to believe that cats/dogs/domesticated animals could all speak to humans if they wanted to, but only didn't because most of the time, we were speaking to them in the wrong language. I used to try to speak to every animal I came across in French to see if one day I'd get lucky & one would respond. (Spoiler alert: It never happened). Did you have any...
