A relationship based on sex, drugs, and alcohol would be an interesting experience.  A love surrounded by these things sounds fun, but super unhealthy, but it’s one that I don’t mind opening up to.

I’m not a newbie when it comes to house, trance, progressive and everything EDM, since I’ve loved it since I was a teeny tiny 7th grader.  I am though, a huge n00b when it comes to attending festivals, massives, raves, and my PLUR game.  One of the reasons I wanted to join this sort of “scene” was for the friendships and love that my friends constantly talked about.  They would come back from shows from the Catalyst in Santa Cruz, or EDC, or these random shows at Ruby Skye, and they’d say how they met dope ass folks during the show and came up on an arm full of kandis, with each one having it’s own story.  After hearing how much fun they had and how PLUR was pretty much the shit to do, I was sold on wanting to go to a rave just to check it out.  It took me awhile though to have to courage to actually buy a ticket to go see a show.
 One of my really good friends finally convinced me to go to IDFest back in August of last year.  After I bought my ticket, I was super excited that this was actually going to happen.  I had the time of my life and had major withdrawals for about 2 weeks after the show.  I couldn’t wait to go to my next one.  What I missed out on though, was walking around to trade kandi with folks around me.  I was looking forward to coming back from this festival with that kandi armful.  Nonetheless, I got and traded kandi with the important people and LOVED the atmosphere.  Everyone around us was super down for anything and everything, head massages for the young and floored, and what made it even more magical was the rain that blessed the crowd during Eric Prydz’s set.  From then on, I was hooked!  Not because of the etherial euphoria of the feeling of rolling balls deep, but feeling so happy with the people I went with, random people I shuffled with, people I met, and just the overall environment and loving ambiance everyone was giving out.
Yes IDFestival was amazing, and I was long due for another festival.  I missed out on Beyond Wonderland cos I was broke, so I kinda/sorta was obligated to go SpookFest in October.  I was so close to just celebrating my Halloween at home, but I was convinced again by some friends to go.  To make a long story short, the music was great, but this time I felt like the spirit of PLUR was gone.  The only PLUR I experienced was with the friends that I rolled through with.  There was little Peace, Love, Unity, and definitely NO RESPECT.  Because it was so frikin crowded, people were practically crawling over each other to get around which would have been ok if people had the PLUR spirit, but everyone just seemed so annoyed that it was packed so tightly in there.  Regardless of everyone else’s negative vibes, I wanted to turn it around and make my time worth it and danced the night away to Calvin Harris.
Fast forward to Swedish House Mafia this past Valentine’s Day.  A whole bunch of my friends were going, and I tried not to let FOMO (Fear of Missing Out) take over, so I made kandi for everyone (as exhibited in my pictures).  I wanted everyone to have fun and enjoy their time with my PLUR spirit with them.  Funny enough though, I ended up going to the show, literally last minute, and had a blast!  
After further discussion with a friend about PLUR, he noticed that it was different.  With my naivety to the whole scene, I somewhat noticed this change too.  From IDFest, I saw a lot of people trading their kandis with each other and showin each other love.  Then to SpookFest, where people were about to knock each other out for space.  Then at Swedish House Mafia, barely anyone walking around PLUR-ing.  
I can’t really say much about this change since I’m so new to this whole “culture” if you will, but hearing others who’ve been in the game for a while, things have really changed.  In other words, the spirit of PLUR is being lost.  The distribution and trading of kandi has been lacking amongst the ravers, and folks go to these things just for the drugs, sex, alcohol, and not the music.  In retrospect, I went to my first festival wanting to pop, but I can see now that it shouldn’t be the reason why I go.  Yeah I’ll pop still cos it’s gets me to that euphoria I long for, but I should want to go for the music and the positive interactions and to contribute to the continuance of PLUR and kandi giving.  I want to help keep this aspect of EDM events alive, and act as a spear of influence to those around me to join in on helping continue PLUR. I’m not a newbie when it comes to house, trance, progressive and everything EDM, since I’ve loved it since I was a teeny tiny 7th grader.  I am though, a huge n00b when it comes to attending festivals, massives, raves, and my PLUR game.  One of the reasons I wanted to join this sort of “scene” was for the friendships and love that my friends constantly talked about.  They would come back from shows from the Catalyst in Santa Cruz, or EDC, or these random shows at Ruby Skye, and they’d say how they met dope ass folks during the show and came up on an arm full of kandis, with each one having it’s own story.  After hearing how much fun they had and how PLUR was pretty much the shit to do, I was sold on wanting to go to a rave just to check it out.  It took me awhile though to have to courage to actually buy a ticket to go see a show.

Dénouement

A slap in the face with visions of failure and angst.  A true redeemer won’t pick up the pieces, but build a new structure, sound enough for anything that may come his way, but the Achilles’ heel has been wounded and has made it difficult for him to keep fighting.  Laying on the ground, almost lifeless, he awaits for his savior.  

Waiting, waiting, waiting.  His eyes start to get heavy.  The sun seems to come closer.  Memories fade and disappear, then death falls upon the weak.

Now a new life is born from the same spirit, only this time it’s ready to be the redeemer and triumph will prevail.  A new life, a new sunrise, a new story.

Happy New Year 2013

aboutmaleprivilege:

(Heterosexual) male privilege is talking about how bad it is to have a gay man incessantly hit on you when you aren’t interested, having it accepted as a common opinion, and still not understand how a woman can feel the same way when you do the same thing.

Male privilege is telling women on the street - who you’ve never met before - to smile, and then acting offended when they don’t.

Male privilege is describing women being cautious about sexual assault as “misandry”, then, in another situation, blaming a victim for (apparently) not being cautious enough.

Male privilege is making jokes about women and using women’s offended responses as proof that they’re “overly sensitive” or “melodramatic”, then using women making jokes about men as proof that women are “callous” and “bitchy”.

Male privilege is being offended at being called sexist, but making fun of women who are offended at actual sexism.

Male privilege is complaining when women don’t reward treating them with basic dignity with sex. Male privilege is thinking you “deserve” or are “owed” a woman. Male privilege is treating friendships with women as failed conquests. Male privilege is putting the blame on women for not wanting to date you, instead of accepting that dating is not a one-sided thing. (In regards to “the friend zone”).

Male privilege is thinking that when you’re hired instead of a woman, it’s because you’re more qualified, but when a woman is hired instead of you, it’s affirmative action or she slept with them.

Male privilege is thinking you’re entitled to make comments about women’s bodies and clothes whenever you please, and then telling women they should feel flattered by this.

Male privilege is thinking consciption is a valid proof of “misandry” when the last conscripted soldier left the US army in 1973 and the UK army in 1963, and when more women are killed in their homes by their male partners every year than male soldiers killed in Afghanistan and Iraq put together.

Male privilege is calling all nerdy women “fakers” and making them “prove” they’re nerds with questions, while doing no such thing for male nerds.

Male privilege is assuming everyone is male until proven otherwise, and also recieving little to no criticism for doing so.

Male privilege is expecting the lead in any film or TV series to be the same gender as you, and being correct almost every single time. (Seriously - how many movies not SPECIFICALLY aimed at women have female leads? How many movies not SPECIFICALLY amed at men have male leads?)

Male privilege is having your country leader and the majority of the legislative body be the same gender as you, and have your gender’s interests in mind.

Male privilege is having bodily autonomy.

(Cis) male privilege is not having to worry about visiting foreign countries because you know how poorly they treat your gender there.

Male privilege is having no risk presented to your career if you choose to start a family.

Male privilege is acting like women having maternity leaves is biological fact without realising that (aside from the birth) men can stay home and look after the newborn baby just fine - you just assume that the woman has to do it.

Male privilege is walking around in summer with just shorts on, but criticising any woman who’d do the same (… even if she’s still wearing more than you!).

Male privilege is sleeping with whomever you like, but calling any woman who does the same (even if she does so less than you) a “whore” who “has no self-respect”.

Male privilege is expecting to be just as, or even more, desirable because you’re sexually active/experienced, yet considering any woman who’s done the same “worthless”, “disgusting” or “cheap”.

Male privilege is ogling, touching or making unsolicited sexual advances at women and saying you “can’t help it” and “men are naturally like that”, then saying that it’s misandry when women agree that all men just “can’t help themselves” and “are naturally like that”.

Male privilege is thinking “being respectful and decent to a woman” is synonymous with “chivalry”… male privilege is not doing the former in order to “get back at feminists” who say the latter is misogynistic.

What every traditional, real American family should look like :) 

COOL!!! Now let me add in some other examples of what a healthy, happy, traditional, real American family should BE ABLE to look like:


Black families



Mexican and South American families



Middle Eastern families



East Asian families



South Asian families



Native American families



European families



Interracial families of all colors



Jewish families



Muslim families



Buddhist families



Hindu families



Atheist or agnostic families



Single mother families



Single father families



Grandparents raising a family



Foster families



Adopted families



Gay parent families



Lesbian parent families



Transgender parent families



Families with special needs children



Families with disabled children



Families with disabled parents



Families with deaf/hard of hearing parents, deaf/hard of hearing children, or both



Childless couples

~~~
Awwww, aren’t they all adorable? :3
I know I probably left a lot of folks out, so feel free to add pictures of what a good, happy, true American family can be! Remember they come in all shapes, sizes, colors, ages, genders, religions, races, cultures, nationalities, sexualities, and appearances, so don’t leave anyone out! Especially when you VOTE. The only thing that defines what makes a family is love. <3
My, isn’t America wonderful~?

EDIT: And you know, I just wanted to add…you can send Rick Santorum and the rest of the country, even the rest of the world, the message that these families and other families that went unmentioned matter TOO, NOT just white, conservative, Christian, straight-parent, double-parent, rich, privileged families like his. Let him and the country know that ALL families have a say, ALL families are what define America, ALL families are what make this nation strong, ALL families matter, ALL families are important, and that ALL families deserve a CHANCE.
Let Rick Santorum know that OUR children deserve the chance to go to college, NOT just his.
Let Rick Santorum know that OUR children deserve to marry whoever they want, NOT just his.
Let Rick Santorum know that WE deserve to marry whoever we fall in love with, NOT just him and his wife Karen.
Let Rick Santorum know that OUR wives and girlfriends deserve to have life-saving abortions/miscarriages/whatever he chooses to call it, NOT just his.
Let Rick Santorum know that OUR special needs and disabled children deserve to have money that can help improve their lives, NOT just his daughter.
Let Rick Santorum know that threatening OUR families will NOT be tolerated, and that WE are the ones who believe in what America TRULY is, a place where ANY family can be free and happy.
Let Rick Santorum know that his family will NOT become the royal figureheads of a medieval theocracy where church and state are bound as one.
Let Rick Santorum know that marriage is as old as humanity and that HIS religion did NOT invent the concept and he can NOT force his definition of it on us.
Let Rick Santorum know that OUR women matter, OUR women should have a say over their own bodies, and that OUR women deserve to be LOVED in any way we see fit.
Let Rick Santorum know that OUR families deserve medical help, OUR parents deserve fair wages and fair pay, OUR parents deserve places in the work force, that OUR single mothers and single fathers and disabled parents are not to be shut out by greedy executives and CEOs who only seek to expand their own paycheck and give NOTHING back to their own employees or society at large.
Let Rick Santorum know that he is WRONG for excluding OUR families, that he is a BIGOT no matter how hard he tries to deny it, and that without OUR families working and toiling away beneath families like his, America would NOT be the rich and powerful country it is today.
Let Rick Santorum know that WE are America and that WE DON’T WANT HIM.
VOTE AGAINST SANTORUM AND OTHER HATEFUL MEN LIKE HIM.
A VOTE AGAINST THEM IS A VOTE FOR FAMILY IN ALL OF ITS FORMS.
A VOTE AGAINST THEM IS A VOTE FOR WHAT AMERICA REALLY IS: A LAND OF THE FREE, A LAND OF HARD-WORKING FAMILIES, A LAND OF EQUAL OPPORTUNITY, A LAND OF FAIR PLAY AND ASSISTING THOSE IN NEED, A LAND THAT DOES NOT SHUT OUT ITS POOR AND DENIES ITS CITIZENS THEIR RIGHTS, A LAND THAT DOES NOT LET BIGOTS LIKE RICK SANTORUM INTO THE WHITE HOUSE.
FAMILIES ARE PEOPLE, NOT CORPORATIONS.
FAMILIES ARE PEOPLE, NOT THEOCRACIES.
FAMILIES ARE PEOPLE, NOT RICK SANTORUM.

Remembering the Mendiola Massascre, Jan. 22 1987, perpetuated by Cory Aquino’s soldiers.
The Kilusang Magbubukid ng Pilipinas (“Peasants’ Movement of the Philippines”), a militant farmers’ group led by Jaime Tadeo, demanded genuine agrarian reform from the Aquino government.
On January 22, 1987, the farmers decided to march to Malacañan Palace in order to air their demands instead of negotiating with Heherson Alvarez. Marching from the Quezon City Memorial Circle, Tadeo’s group was joined by members of other militant groups: Kilusang Mayo Uno (May One Movement),Bagong Alyansang Makabayan (New Patriotic Alliance), League of Filipino Students and Kongreso ng Pagkakaisa ng Maralitang Lungsod (Unity Congress of the Urban Poor). At 1:00 in the afternoon, the marchers reached Liwasang Bonifacio and held a brief presentation. At around the same time, anti-riot personnel under the command of Capital Regional Command commander Gen. Ramon Montaño, Task Force Nazareno under the command of Col. Cesar Nazareno and police forces under the command of Western Police District Chief Brig. Gen. Alfredo Lim were deployed around the vicinity of Malacañang.
The marchers numbered 10,000–15,000 by the time they reached Claro M. Recto Avenue. They clashed with the police, and the police lines were breached. At this point, gunshots were heard and the marchers disengaged from the melee, retreating towards Claro M. Recto Avenue. Sporadic gunfire could be heard amidst the withdrawal. 
Twelve marchers were immediately confirmed dead; later sources would cite thirteen. Thirty-nine had gunshot wounds and 12 sustained minor injuries. On the state security forces’ side, three sustained gunshot wounds and 20 suffered minor injuries.

Remembering the Mendiola Massascre, Jan. 22 1987, perpetuated by Cory Aquino’s soldiers.
The Kilusang Magbubukid ng Pilipinas (“Peasants’ Movement of the Philippines”), a militant farmers’ group led by Jaime Tadeo, demanded genuine agrarian reform from the Aquino government.
On January 22, 1987, the farmers decided to march to Malacañan Palace in order to air their demands instead of negotiating with Heherson Alvarez. Marching from the Quezon City Memorial Circle, Tadeo’s group was joined by members of other militant groups: Kilusang Mayo Uno (May One Movement),Bagong Alyansang Makabayan (New Patriotic Alliance), League of Filipino Students and Kongreso ng Pagkakaisa ng Maralitang Lungsod (Unity Congress of the Urban Poor). At 1:00 in the afternoon, the marchers reached Liwasang Bonifacio and held a brief presentation. At around the same time, anti-riot personnel under the command of Capital Regional Command commander Gen. Ramon Montaño, Task Force Nazareno under the command of Col. Cesar Nazareno and police forces under the command of Western Police District Chief Brig. Gen. Alfredo Lim were deployed around the vicinity of Malacañang.
The marchers numbered 10,000–15,000 by the time they reached Claro M. Recto Avenue. They clashed with the police, and the police lines were breached. At this point, gunshots were heard and the marchers disengaged from the melee, retreating towards Claro M. Recto Avenue. Sporadic gunfire could be heard amidst the withdrawal. 
Twelve marchers were immediately confirmed dead; later sources would cite thirteen. Thirty-nine had gunshot wounds and 12 sustained minor injuries. On the state security forces’ side, three sustained gunshot wounds and 20 suffered minor injuries.

two+seven interview with Ryan Jordan (Ryan Jordan: The Interview)
I was never close to Ryan, or ever hung out with him.  I don&#8217;t think I even talked to him in person before.  Our only interaction is probably through FB, and what I got was humility.  Despite all these things, and mind you, I&#8217;m trying to sound as less creeper as I possibly could, I&#8217;m proud that he&#8217;s become so successful (or at least I think so) at such a young age.  Partly, I think my pride comes from the fact that he&#8217;s a Bay Area native but mostly because we went to high school together (BUT NEVER INTERACTED WITH EACH OTHER FOR ALL THE 3 YEARS WE COULD HAVE, which I find almost stalkerish at the moment) and that he&#8217;s an EVHS alum.  I mean, what EV student/alum wouldn&#8217;t be proud?  He&#8217;s well accomplished in the fashion industry, worked with so many of the greats, and even dresses really well!  OK, maybe I&#8217;m a little jealous, and maybe also I&#8217;m a little fond of his looks, but the pride pretty much overrules that.
I wish this guy the best of luck with everything, and go check out his tumblr and new website!  Don&#8217;t forget to read this interview too!
