things to know about ALA sessions
if people congregate at the back of the room and won’t move up, it’s not that they dislike you or aren’t committed to your panel; that’s just the only place in the room where there’s outlets
In Anaheim. My bag’s not here yet and I can’t get “Time to Pretend” out of my head. Let’s go to a conference
We’re playing a show tomorrow night, because obviously the thing to do the night before you leave for ALA is to stay out past midnight playing a show. It’s cool, I don’t have to leave for Pittsburgh until like 9:00am, I can sleep in. Anyway, we practiced tonight and once we learned the couple of songs we haven’t been playing because we’re not putting them on our demo,...

Racism at Lincoln Hall and One Queer Roof
abloodymess: quelola: fuckyeahfatdykes: I want to be clear about the story we are telling. We were not allowed into Lincoln Hall because we used the word “racist” to the bouncer and that made two white men uncomfortable, intimidated, angry, spiteful and refused to accept the term deemed for a racist. In order for me to break down the details and speak truth to what happened on Saturday I...

Should I try and scam my way into first class with this leg brace on Thursday when I fly to California?
also I haven’t been on my bike at all since June 1 and I miss it
I’ve been walking with a leg brace for a week and a half on account of having dislocated my kneecap, and being slow and hobbly has made me way more aware of all the jerks in State College who ride their bikes on the sidewalk even though there’s a perfectly good street right next to it. Like, this isn’t Brooklyn, you’re not going to get doored by a garbage truck and...

afootballreport: By Amy Eustace, writing from Dublin and ready to fly to Poland. I have spent the past ten years in international football’s no-man’s land. It’s been both lonely and frustrating. Ireland’s precarious position at Europe’s western edge, and even more precarious proximity to ol’ Blighty, has meant that we couldn’t possibly ignore the European championships, even when we,...

I’m pretty sure everyone except maybe Austin ignores my soccer links but serious, it’s a really good story if you’ve got twenty minutes it’s Outside The Lines so it’s a little overwrought but try and ignore that

ESPN story on FC Start →
theworldsgame: From the wikipedia article on FC Start: After their defeat on 6 August 1942, the German Luftwaffe team, Flakelf, asked for a rematch, which took place on 9 August 1942 at Zenit Stadium. Unlike other games, this game had a heavy presence of police and German troops, who were guarding the event. An SS officer was appointed as referee. Before the game the referee visited FC Start...

This is delightful. I’d say they should go with the White Sox but I don’t actually think that would solve this problem, the White Sox have a pretty thin farm system right now.

can I expect four boutique poutine places to open on College Avenue this fall, then close two months later once they remember this is State College and they don’t do that shit here
