With his acoustic album "Motorcycle Childhood," Tyson Meade uses spare arrangement and raw vocals to share details of his life. It's very different from his other role as the openly gay lead singer of the Chainsaw Kittens, where he used to take to the stage in lipstick, tights and mini-skirts.

In a small town somewhere at the foot of the Appalachian Mountains, teachers prepare for the coming semester. Professors grimly consult lesson plans, breaking in new Dockers ("I still wear the same size I wore when I graduated," they brag, bellies hanging over their straining waistlines like blubber off Ahab's whaler). Dormitories are surrounded by troops of exterminators bent on eradicating last year's mess before the health department shows up for a final check. The grounds are infested with newly arrived victims, ready to give the university their all and terrified that anything beyond the boundaries of the parents' homes will eat them alive. If they only knew.

I am standing with my tit caught in a wringer while a mall-haired technician tells me to relax. I am thinking that if men had to put their testicles in a vise as part of a yearly physical, we would have a cure for the common cold by now. I am very frightened.
The pink slip came as we were leaving on vacation: "We have found what appears to be a routine abnormality..." What's routine about an abnormality? I decide to put on a brave front and joke that in all my life no one has ever called me routine; then I burst into tears. Later on I do the grown-up thing and panic, furtively examining my breasts in the mirror for changes. I'm afraid that if I touch them to check for lumps, I will set something off. I wish they were smaller. I wish they were removable. I wish they were on anyone but me.
So I've been gone for quite some time, and as the last private message indicates, it's been almost 3 months.
I shall update you all rather quickly as long updates are rather dull and uneccesary: I've graduated high school, I'm going to a college I do not want to attend, I am reunited with my best friend who I stopped talking to, I am reading a shorter finnegans wake, I am starting to watch seinfeld, listening to the velvet underground. hating life as. Usual.
I posted the wrong link to the girl playing the drum solo, but I thought the one I posted was good too : )
I feel SO stupid now!
Here's the correct link:
So I finally decided to watch the new My Little Pony cartoon. It's pretty neat, can't believe there's this huge fandom and all these conventions the fans setup. I think it'd be sort of fun to go to something like that, it's one hell of a pop culture phenomena. Anyway, crazy things, crazy things that one tries to parse.
I saw this video on YouTube and had to share it. Girls get looked down on for playing the drums but I think she did a good job. She's influenced by one of my favorites, Neil Peart from Rush, not a bad thing.
Plus, she's got a sense of humor!
Omg so yea the title explains it all. But don't freak out y'all no humans were harmed. So I've taken up archery as a stress reliever and it's really been working. I've used the old shed in my back yard as a target and lets just say it sorta lost a door lol (I was real mad that day) but anyways if you see where my house is you'd see huge fields to the left and in the back and we usually see a lot of little creatures in our yard like snakes,opossum, and anything else that wanders in but my dog usually takes care of them because they all come in through the back yard.
Hi Oasisland! My name's Joey and I'm 13, going to be 14 this fall. This is my first time writing on here but I'm been a steady follower of this site since I was 10. I've been wanting to write on here for a really long time, but I didn't think I would get any kind of real acceptance being on here when I was younger. And I'm FAR from being what the gay community would consider an ideal gay teen.
Girls, what's my weakness?
