Caliban: I Will Never Let You Down

trumppence-750x400

This fucking guy, right here.

Let’s get this out of the way – generally, I am not a big fan of internet trolls.  Most of my friends in college would share epic trolls with each other, laughing hysterically at those targeted when they became upset and angry.

I get it – it’s funny to make someone really mad about something you don’t care about.

However, most of what bothers me about it is its sheer pointlessness – what are you actually proving, besides the fact that you’re an asshole?

The best thing so far that’s come out of the horrendous election last week is the movement of donations to Planned Parenthood.  The best thing I’ve read about this movement is that you can donate in honor of Mike Pence, who is famously against reproductive health and justice (alongside his many other awful policies).

Any donation in his name means he will be getting a certificate of donation mailed to him at his mansion.  One could almost picture the shaking, red-faced annoyance of the aide who has to throw away yet another reminder that we support reproductive justice and access to health care for all, regardless of income.

CLICK HERE TO DONATE TO PLANNED PARENTHOOD.

If you’d like to do it in honor of Mike Pence, his address is:

Office of Governor Mike Pence
State House
Room 206
Indianapolis, IN 46204-2797

If you’re going to troll someone, do it with purpose, and do it so that a greater good comes out of it.  Hell yeah, internet!

Darkest Hour: The Sadist Nation

I don’t know if this counts as a throwback, since it only came out a few years ago, but heck, I’m going to go ahead and count it.  I love this band, their energy, that they’re playing hardcore punk.  I love them.  You should too.

Cerebral Ballzy: Don’t Tell Me What To Do

Daniel Johnston has a really sad story.  Actually, he has about fifteen albums full of really sad stories.  I love this song, though, because it’s a little happy sounding…for better or worse, I still like to listen on a sunny day.  I also love him because he’s been diagnosed with schizophrenia, and is still super important in the indie music scene.
