The Locust - The Locust 7”
Date Listened: 7/30/14
Thoughts: The more I listen to the Locust, the more I enjoy them. This EP is a bit simpler than their later stuff. The keyboards are such a good fucking addition, and the drums are at their expected level of entrancing intensity. If you’re not familiar with the Locust, be prepared to listen to eleven songs in less than seven-and-a-half minutes. Out of all of the spazzy mid-90’s hardcore releases on this list, I think this one was the most enjoyable for me. Four of these songs show up on their self-titled album. Dope. 8/10
Favorite Tracks: "Kill Roger Hedgecock," "Hairspray Suppository," "#99"

LOVE, THE BABY
I think my face has a sort of sensationalizing effect on my pictures, and that’s okay usually because I love my face and it’s great. But I wanted to take some pictures without it because I want other fat and/or black people to relate. The “pretty face” fat thing is still a large issue within the body positive community.
Beautiful-faced fat people are so important, but our revered presence tends to alienate those who feel they don’t make the face cut. The same applies to fat people with medium to smaller bodies on the spectrum, and I realize that that’s where I fit in these days. I don’t deny that privilege that I have, but I hope people larger than me still see some features they can relate to. Not to mention, when we do see very personal pictures of nude fat bodies, they’re overwhelmingly white.
Anyway, I saw a post involving feelingswithbrandy and pardonmewhileipanic that spoke on an issue about representation of fat-related features on bodies that people feel they alone have because they don’t see it documented frequently, if ever, in the body and fat positive community.
It got me thinking that I wanted to show myself to other fat and/or black people in hopes that they can relate. I usually wear clothes because I like style, but I wanted to serve a slightly different purpose. So here’s a series of pictures of my body with some large deposits of back fat and some visible deposits of side/under boob fat or whatever it is. I cropped out my butt because too many fetish-having asshats lurk, and I’m sure they’ll still get to these but at least not all of me.
you are nobody’s everything
no one is coming for you
you do not occupy space
in anyone’s mind regularly
you are not unique
you are an animal
R.I.P. the actual meaning of the word “aesthetics”
This is so pretentious
and incorrect, as its still being used the same way it was intended to be
