from the Paris diaries of Ernst Jünger, 15 September 1943. Trans. Hilary Barr:

"I was having dinner in my room at the Raphael when at around twenty minutes to eight the sirens sounded the alert. Soon there came the sound of intense fire; I hurried up to the roof. There my eyes were met by a…

Lesson Learned: don’t waste time on squares and do-gooders

None of the attackers are giving the whole story (or are outright lying. I’m talking about you Matt Elgin you gossipy little cunt) and this whole thing has gone far beyond merely disagreeing with their choice in industrial shock-art, to an 80s fundamentalist church mom type of agenda where they’ll ignore anyone who was actually there saying “No, this is actually how it was”.

Doomsday 2014 was groovy as hell. Apparently I danced for like 4 hours straight. Also noticed raw meat caked between the treads of my boots the morning after.

If you think it’s good to have police kidnap and put someone in a state-funded steel cage where they’ll be brutalized and sexually assaulted for years simply because they owned a certain quantity of plants, mushrooms or chemicals with far less harm potential than your average Walgreens-bought tobacco/alcohol substances, you’re messed up.

Moving apartments right now. Updates later.
