Found this whole cleaning. Never thought a health insurance card could make me feel so nostalgic. I remember really feeling like I was making it when I got this. I had moved far away on a whim, found a job, secured myself a flat, and had fucking health insurance. Well done previous self.
I don’t believe in guilty pleasures. If you fucking like something, like it. That’s what’s wrong with our generation: that residual punk rock guilt, like, “You’re not supposed to like that. That’s not fucking cool.” Don’t fucking think it’s not cool to like Britney Spears’ “Toxic.” It is cool to like Britney Spears’ “Toxic”! Why the fuck not? Fuck you! That’s who I am, goddamn it! That whole guilty pleasure thing is full of fucking shit.
In Eviction Noticed our senior editor Bruce Falconer writes on the history and legacy of the Tacheles building in the former East Berlin, which has been a home for “musicians, artists, radicals, addicts, and dropouts from both sides of the Wall” and essentially a “counterculture utopia inside the power vacuum” for well over a decade. Check out the piece here to see just how Tacheles fought against it’s own cities gentrification.
I totally haven’t posted in awhile, because I totally keep looking at my to do list: update blog of past trips before you go on blabbing about new ones. Also, I often feel like my trips while back here in the US aren’t nearly as exciting as the trips I used to take while living in Praha. But this weekend I headed up to Schroon Lake in the Adirondacks Mountain region. Upstate NY for short. My boyfriend’s family has a lake-house up there and the area is quite beautiful.
This weekend including day cuddling (gag, I know), hungover hiking, and a BREATH-TAKING (for reals) meteor shower. Cosmic trash actually. New band name?
