Don't say I never gave you nothin' 2010 edition

Our friend Ben Pier is famous for a few things: photography, good looks, a proclivity for the darker, more rear access zones to a woman's interior and generally being a good dude who's always worked with my band, the Lawrence Arms. He shot pretty much every photo we've ever put into a record. He shot the cover of Buttsweat and Tears and recently, while he was on tour with us on the east coast, he shot a video for Them Angels Been Talkin without us even knowing he was doing it. I think it's pretty great. obviously, whatever you think of my ugly mug, it's obvious that chris and Neil are very handsome and ben is extremely good at this shit. I'm going to visit family, so I'm not gonna be regularly updating this until the new year, so until then, here's my gift to you: Ben Pier's video for some song off some record.

Dig it, here!

And without further ado, the BK's Bedroom Friars Club presents...
The Sock Drawer's Top 15 Faggots! (in no order):

Drew - purchased a fedora on a whim from Target; still has trouble saying 'fettucini'

Jesus - lmfao

Seagull Steve - prime candidate for top faggot in a sequential list; I hope a rare exotic seabird shits into your dominant eye

!Thriller! - claim that Salvia--the lamest fucking drug to exist--"rules" sealed the deal

Stacey McKewwl - ohh GAWWWD; but points for that pic in which she unintentionally resembled a middle eastern wife whose husband would whip her in the village square if she went to market with her face exposed

Yulene Hovovitz - jesus fucking christ (SP deliberate)

'Sammich' Nick - I can't seee you!! plus what a dummy!

James Bliss - sigh

Moore Sketches! - Totally inoffensive; I just loathe your avatar; nothing personal

Virtual Visor - actually amazing, but had trouble getting 15; honorables aren't nearly faggoty enough

Candice - ...how?

LauraBM - Pol Pot to Candice's Hitler; slightly less awful is still fucking awful

Kevin B - has Better Than Ezra/Candlebox mp3 mix CDs in car; too chicken to watch 'Unsolved Mysteries' as child

Trusty Chords - just go to hell

Banana@1000mph - I can't stand your username, yet can't stop trying to find its origin

The Magic Schtick (Ghost of Dan Gordon-Levitt) said...

**Honorable mentions**

Sean - genuine enthusiasm; superb bone structure; but prone to obvious remarks framed as grand epiphanies

Sheila - Not a faggot; coolest female involved in BSC by large margin; congrats

Toto - claims english as second language, yet is utterly fluent and even implements casual slang perfectly; what a goddamn liar

Sickie - sounds like screenname of a late '90s Coal Chamber megafan; pretty but clear obnoxious streak

Jayzilla - thankfully keeps visits rare and brief; just astonishingly dumb

Dusty floors - talked way too much about girlfriend-who-is-too-hot-for-him; yea yea we get it. Otherwise ok

Robb - once good but seriously slipping; really doubt you're that into Motorhead; BK clearly hates you and I suspect it's mutual yet you're still a fan; it's fucking odd but I like

Donnie - just luuuuuuvs his Disney! Cmon

House - who the fuck are you? And who's said 'doofus' since '92?

Martucci - the face-value, shameless mean-spiritedness is refreshing, but FAR too hit or miss

Townes Van Zandt - Not on bsc; dead; but folks really need to get up off his old dead dick


...And there you have it! Have a dangerous and miserable holiday season! Spirit sprinklez Awaaaaaaaaaaaay~

Sean said...

Enjoyed the list, despite the title.



Thanks for the compliments/misinterpreted humor as something more meaningful than intended.

Candice said...

what a shocker- limitednobility didn't make the cut.

i gotta agree with you about sheila. hope she doesn't go down a few notches in your cool book when you realize she's actually friends with such a huge faggot like me.

Blake said...

I didn't make the list :(

Candice said...

don't worry, blake. you'll always be my top douchebag.

Jimmy Collyer said...

I appear in that video multiple times from the brooklyn show... AWESOME!

limited nobility said...

candice-you mean to imply that I wrote the list?Naw,I enjoyed it thoroughly and agree with most of it cept I dont really know who sheila is.I would say my fave female on here is the fat one.bridgett or whatever

limited nobility said...

or did you mean that i deserve to be on that list since im such a faggot?

limited nobility said...

whoa wait,who was that chick who (in like 09) posted a pithy,sincere diatribe on how candice was just kind of a fundamentally irritating person?no hyperbole or cheekiness whatsoever,it just seemed straight from the heart.She's good too

Banana@1000MPH said...

phew! I was really getting worried I wasn't gonna make the cut for a second there.

The Magic Schtick (Ghost of Dan Gordon-Levitt) said...

Candice - ltd nobility doesn't make the faggot cut because, in stark contrast to yourself, his/her (pretty sure it's a dude) zingers/contributions are almost always on point, and have a certain subtlety I respond to that say martucci or robb, who often have a similar vibe, sometimes lack. But I guess this is that internet thing where if you show preference for a certain person (or in this case, opt to not call them a complete faggot), you apparently ARE them! Besides, how do you know I'm not one of the faggots/honorables and just threw myself up there to alleviate suspicion? But all that aside, I hope at the very least you acknowledge the irony here. As for Sheila, I'm aware and rest assured it doesn't tarnish her good standing. Now go sip some Burt's Bees Tummy Tea. Does BB make a tummy tea?
'Planespotting' - random ex. of someone who doesn't stand out in any way (positive/negative), and isn't quite enough of a regular to make either list

Blueberry Head, Hot College Comic! said...

What a superb list! I hate all those people! Well the top 15 anyway!

The Magic Schtick (Ghost of Dan Gordon-Levitt) said...

Ladies and gents - small revision. Let's make it a Top 16 and throw "Candice's Breasts" up there. Sufficiently faggoty to warrant inclusion on the tops list yet not so faggoty as to overthrow any of the other tops, rarely have I witnessed such a pathetic, misfired-yet-clearly-earnest attempt at internet humor in my lifetime. To this day I suspect it was one of the other Top 15 behind it...I mean, it adds up.

Banana@1000MPH said...

Hey, just out of curiosity, since we're going for homophobia and all...ignoring how much my name bothers you, how does my thoroughly gay "cute animal" picture not qualify me as a "faggot" more than my username? I just really thought I'd nailed the whole "being a faggot" with the cute animal pictures and now I have to reevaluate my life.

Drunken Acorn said...

Great, now I got to post on here more so I can make next years list.

The Magic Schtick (Ghost of Dan Gordon-Levitt) said...

Banana boy, don't be such an intellectually dishonest dweeb. Here, come sit on my lap. As we both know, despite making its modern day entrance as a seething hateful term for gays, faggot has since developed an entirely separate al-purpose derogatory use for everything from thief to liar to tool to fucking dork. This is a natural byproduct of the perpetual evolution and progress of language, no matter how loudly and dramtically Cecil B. Hipster articulates his words and dramatically pauses to itchy-witchy his turtleneck as he pontificates on the "tragic lack of social responsibility" this alternate breed of faggot entails from behind chic non-prescription black frames. Ironically it's those who so dogmatically condemn words to their initial usage that most impede said progress, yet this irony is almost always seemingly lost on such people. The list may have well as read "top dorks" or "top assholes" or "top clowns" but that brings me to my other point--faggot's undeniable aesthetic zing. Which has more bite - faggot or dummy? In terms of how it rolls off the tongue. If you said dummy you're kidding yourself.
Anyway, watch Louis CK's stand up snippet on 'faggot'--and if you still "cant" grasp where I come from, well, fuck you.

The Magic Schtick (Ghost of Dan Gordon-Levitt) said...

Make no mistake, these are folks who grind my fucking gears for various arbitrary reasons, thus the list IS decidedly negative--but let's not get the context of faggot twisted here.

Kevin Burnett said...

I've never even heard of candlebox...and your avatar is a giant flaming sphincter.


Merry Christmas dicks!

The Magic Schtick (Ghost of Dan Gordon-Levitt) said...

Well Kevin Burns, if yoo ain' jsut the biggist fibber round these parts!! Thissis like dat time when we was at baseball camp in you told us how when you accidentedly sprinkled gold bond powder onto yer salad thinkin it was kraft parmesan n your sister busted you!! She wouln' let you hear the end uf it! You fucking faggot.

Andrew said...

before the flame war started i thought the list was pretty funny, i'll admit.

after the last couple comments though, not so sure.

limited nobility said...

The Magic Schtick (Ghost of Dan Gordon-Levitt) said...

So...by admission you enjoyed seeing your brethren skewered in a "faggot list", but had reservations with the ensuing 10 posts' worth of...the exact same shit? With a brief articulate compendium on faggot's place in language thrown in no less? That's fucking absurd. But I am glad you popped in Andy, as I'd forgotten you entirely! Let's say Honorable mention "for enjoying 1408 at face value, and not understanding seemingly anything". There we go!

james bliss said...

I think what's most disingenuous is that Schtick hides his identity while he goes through his hackneyed, Jim Norton-esque, white-guy-tellin'-it-like-it-is routine.

DID YOU HEAR WHAT HE SAID ABOUT MUSLIM WOMEN BEING ASSAULTED BY THEIR HUSBANDS? I BETCHA HE'S REALLY GONNA CATCH HELL FROM ALL THOSE MUSLIM-WOMEN-DEFENDERS OUT THERE ON THE 'NET!

Good thing there's someone on the internet brave enough to hide behind a fake identity and say faux-nasty things about people...

The Magic Schtick (Ghost of Dan Gordon-Levitt) said...

Jim Norton? Jesus christ.

I think what's real appropriate about your citation of the "Muslim women" snippet--obvious throwaway comedic framing device that it is--is it exemplifies the whole "self-righteous in my ostensibly tolerant persona but kinda misguided in my dumbness" thing really well. It's kind of why you're up there to begin with.

"Someone on internet bein naughty, not usin their christian naaaame! 'N I'm actin appropriately irritated but dismissive 'bout it! He's probly a REEEAAL actual certimfied homofobe and mysogynist!
He DEFINITEY ain' just kinda deliberately exploiting/reveling in what remains a real cultural linguistic hang-up; albeit MOSTLY as an excuse to (subjectively) cite douchebags a douchebags and thus allow for each 'subject' to step up and exemplify their own unique brand of douchbaggery in response (stirring their own cauldron and makin things real meta in the process) for his own selfish entertainment--but also to kinda make a tiny point on the dynamic b/w the etymology vs practical application of words, and how they (words) tend to be too-easy sources of 'power plays' for self-righteous cunts hoping to play the moral superiority angle."

Blake said...

Bro, bro bro bro, bro bro, Bro. Don't be so wordy, Bro.

The Magic Schtick (Ghost of Dan Gordon-Levitt) said...

ohh shut the fuck up, cookie monster. Talk about cliched internet retorts...

james bliss said...

well, except... you're not doing that, and you're not really being meta. you really are just being Jim Norton, no matter your pretensions about channeling Louis CK.

The Magic Schtick (Ghost of Dan Gordon-Levitt) said...

Well, no. I didn't claim to be meta - I merely provided you the chance for you to go (unwittingly) meta by demonstrating the exact fucking reasons you grate my nerves via the very (misguided) nature of your response. Which is precisely what has happened. It's fantastic.

And, not that I have any delusions of being Louis - but how am I "doing Norton" but not CK when CK just does the same schtick Norton does, but like 100x better? (The obvious zinger here would be "exactly!" ..but you clearly didnt mean it that way). Holy shit you're an asshole.

Toto said...

i'm really glad to be "honorably mentioned", this blog was really helpfull for my education, i've learned some great words that i use in real life, such as jizz, mammoth dong , dildo , gay cancer, etc,
now i can be the "cool latin guy" everywhere i go.

un saludo para todos mis amigos de las cronicas del mal sandwich , feliz año nuevo , queres saber que significa esto y estas usando ahora el traductor de google?

Blake said...

Soy! Yo lo hice!

james bliss said...

but even that isn't meta, your original charge that I'm 'sigh' doesn't exactly open the field of meta for me to (supposedly unwittingly) traipse into.

and you clearly don't understand the distinction between Jim Norton and Louis CK. Yes, of course CK is a better comic, that's besides the point, they do completely different things. Norton has shifted from (much stronger) material that was primarily self-effacing (as with the best material in his 'One Night Stand' and 'Happy Endings') to being primarily self-righteous (which made up almost all of his 'monster rain' and 'I hate your stinking guts'). Everything you say falls into this area of weak Nortonian self-righteousness, where the joke isn't his own pomposity but the supposed defects of his targets--which, importantly, recodes that pomposity as pathetic (which is precisely what you've been doing to yourself during this whole exchange).

CK, on the other hand, has become popular primarily by mining his own defects in a way that is generally either ethically sound or openly unethical (and thereby ethically sound)--in the case of the former, we need only consider his choice to no longer do material about his ex-wife following their divorce, and in the case of the latter, we can consider his material on the ethics of using racial slurs or of consuming meat (which he clearly locates as a. totally unethical and inexcusable, and b. intensely pleasurable).

james bliss said...

In fact, I don't know why you only referenced his discussion of 'faggot' from 'Chewed Up' instead of his later discussion of it in the poker scene from 'Louie.' In no way does he ever argue that you can, in his own words, 'take peoples' historical context away from them,' and we might add that you can't take a slur's historical context away from it either--say, by asserting (and here the assertion itself becomes the proof) that 'faggot' has changed significantly in its meaning, even though it has always been, and remains, a term used by straight men to denigrate those who are either not-straight or insufficently-straight [read, 'annoying'], as with the man who takes the dick out of his mouth to mention that people from Phoenix are Phoenicians.

Your whole point has been that the people you don't like on here are 'in fact' faggot/dummies, making you a Norton, not a CK.

Jamie said...

Y'all are being a bunch of faggots.

Sean said...

Either way, this whole "oooooooh, I'm going to be borderline offensive and grammatically misuse and arguably abuse the word 'faggot,' just to get people all riled up/make a statement" thing has been done before, and is never really that funny to begin with.

Socks, doesn't it all seem a little too forced and calculated?


Sure, some famous comedians that you guys have mentioned have routines involving this word that are pretty funny... but that doesn't mean it's still acceptable. Comedians can be wrong too, guys. Just because they say a joke involving the word "faggot" doesn't mean that they are going about their days making "top 15" lists or anything ridiculous like that.



I don't mean to call you out or anything (sort of like you were calling us out... you know...), but I'm sure that you wouldn't be so liberal with your use of the word "faggot" if you were gay. Now I don't know your sexual preference, and don't want to know, but from the gay people that I have met and many of which are my friends, they would never abuse such a modernly hateful word just for the shock value. Perhaps if you knew how difficult it was for an actual gay man or woman to come to terms with their sexual identity in today's society, you would make a "Top 15 Dummies" list next time.

Honestly, this purposely borderline offensive "shock humor" is getting pretty overused and tired.

SIMPSON'S DID IT! SIMPSON'S DID IT!

People who casually throw around offensive words (just for the sake of using offensive words to get a reaction, because let's be honest, that's exactly why you did it) are still spreading this hateful idea that the word "faggot" is to be synonymous with words like "lame," "dummy," and "annoying." When these things are coupled together and close-minded (and perhaps homophobic? not necessarily you, but A LOT of the cases, arguably) then it just makes it THAT much harder for those homosexual individuals to come to terms with their preferences and identity, let alone being accepted by their family, friends, and society as a whole.

Sean said...

that being said, I realize that Brendan had a post about the word "gay" a while back, and he seemed to endorse its use as a synonym for "lame."


His usage of the word "gay," while still borderline offensive by today's standards, was entirely different than your use of the word "faggot."


From what I gathered, he was pro-using it in casual conversation, perhaps amongst friend.... NOT using it just to see how people would react to him using it, if that makes sense.


He didn't force or calculate his usage of the word "gay," whereas your usage of the word "faggot" just comes off as contrived.

That being said, I still don't enjoy the word "gay" being thrown around so liberally, nor any other offensive word by today's standards. If it makes someone feel like shit or inferior, then why say it? To prove a point? To make a statement? For shock value? Instead of knowingly infringing upon someone elses happiness (cuz you just know it will, or why say it to begin with?) for your own temporary personal amusement, why not reconsider you vocabulary and pick a different word? It really is that easy.


I understand that modern society is pretty ridiculous about being "PC" and all that jazz, but when it comes to words like "faggot" or "gay" being used in a derogatory sense, how can you honestly justify making a "Top 15 Faggots" list just for your own personal amusement?


Would you call a man who is being "lame" a faggot to his face? How about a gay man who is being lame? How about if you found out a close friend was gay and he was refusing to tie his shoes while you and all your friends were waiting on him? Would you call him a faggot to his face? Or would you create a fake name and address, and mail him a letter with his name on the top of your "Top 15 Faggots" list?

Be honest, no one would do that to a friend. So why do it to anyone else?

Sean said...

(By the way, I wouldn't be surprised if I'm suddenly bumped up to the "Top 15" list... or some sort of variation in the form of internet retaliation haha... A true honor, I'm sure.)

But you know what socks, it's totally cool. Really, it is. At least there's another awesome misuse of a completely derogatory term being added to the ever-present cluster fuck of homophobia found on the internet. Thank you, Mr. Shtick. I'm sure you didn't intend for it to be scrutinized or taken as an anti-gay message you were spewing, but when you take the boring humor out of your act, the rest is pretty fucking awful. Is that really what you want to rely on? Shock value? I bet you can do better than that.

Honestly. I'm not trying to be a dick or anything, I'm really not. If I met you in person I would say all this to your face and you could see that I'm being sincere and not trying to be a sarcastic dick with some sort of a morality complex. I don't like the majority of people who try to shove their own morals down other people's throats... but all I'm asking is please reconsider what you think is funny, especially to post here. Why can't we all just get along enough to not have to call anyone out/make ridiculous lists? I understand I said "sure man" when you asked if anyone wanted to hear the list (at least you gave sort of a warning), but that was a response to the title.... which I was hoping was a joke, but it turns out you were at least serious enough to type up all of that detailed information and reasoning behind many of the people's names.

I just don't want anyone to have to feel shitty about themselves because of someone's poorly thought out humor. After all, I'm sure you didn't intend this (although I am not positive.... but after seeing how many comments you posted afterward and how defensive you got over your "lists," it seems like you felt the need to explain yourself more clearly).

Instead of putting yourself in that position over a failed attempt at humor, why not take the low road road and personally attack the readers and commenters of this blog. Why can't we all just read the blog, post comments when we want to, and not in a way that is purposely going to create drama just for the sake of creating drama.

No one liked high school THAT much...

Jack Hardy said...

I'm just going to leave this here. You guys do what you want with it. I'm thinking if we all just stop giving him what he wants, limited_nobility and all of his god-forsaken creations will go away.

The Magic Schtick (Ghost of Dan Gordon-Levitt) said...

Ohh, excitement! Alright James, I was without internet there. Look, you've kinda done that thing where you pluck some extraneous peripheral stuff and lump that into your argument against me--eg the Norton/CK debacle--which I'll return to. And I'll concede some potential "shaky" use of "meta" earlier--I was (am) under the assumption one can 'go meta' without doing so consciously or deliberately--as in, here your remarks were exemplifying a point about you I was trying to convey--it made sense to me. But I'll admit some potential butchery there. Anyone want to weigh in?

Anyhow, my point there being your responses were kind of reinforcing something I'd noticed--as far as bsc--that you kind of tend to come off (to me) as this domineering moral crusader sort, ready to swoop in and poo-poo or otherwise sap the fun from anything you perceive as not "up to snuff" ethically--but not accounting for context/intent per se.

There was an incident awhile back where someone called you a faggot (in a clear non-sexual generic context) over a joke or crass remark you made or something. And your response was that immediate knee-jerk assumptive sort that lazily paints the perp as a '50s homophobe that time traveled to a wifi hotspot. I've noticed a few other remarks of yours, not in response to things directed at you per se (no, I'm not going to go dig them up) carrying a similar aura--that of a kind of suffocating smugness of perceived moral superiority. i think another may have been when people were contributing $ for BK's netbook awhile back, and a few people were essentially 'scolding' people over "more ethical uses" for their money, as if under the pompous assumption this had never crossed anyone's mind. It's just a very "I'm 18, discovered social injustice and vague leftism last month, and itchin to prove how how-minded and ethical I am!" vibe.

This ties directly into my liberal use of faggot, which as Sean correctly identified WAS shameless bait abeit with an intent beyond "offend offend"--that being the points I touched on re: suppression vs neutering of loaded words, and re: the use of words as convenient ammo for exerting moral superiority, which kind of dishonestly overlooks context and capacity for alternate use.
Two things I feel genuinely about. Tying al that into a lowbrow online "roast" IS a pretty bizarre pairing, I'll be the first to say, but hey.

james bliss said...

It's a good thing my t-shirt reads "Ask me how it feels to be the product of a troll's pathological transference?"

The Magic Schtick (Ghost of Dan Gordon-Levitt) said...

Oh, and no, Sean, that actually won't "bump" you into the top 15 - I actually agree with more of what you've said here than I can go into at the moment, because I'm frankly tired as fuck.

The Magic Schtick (Ghost of Dan Gordon-Levitt) said...

As for the 'extraneous' stuff, I feel you've done it here--with focusing on the "Muslim women" jab--which I felt was obvious as a throwaway remark in context--and to a larger degree the Norton/CK comparisons. I only ever cited the CK bit in passing to give a quick frame of reference--that I my view on the matter largely mirrors his. The implication wasn't "see this is all a CK I'm goin for!"

Ditto for the Norton/CK comparisons. You broke down the numbers, but I still maintain they fall in the same subgenre of stand up--mixture of relatable, compelling self-effacement with relevant social critiques/commentary? So what if each employs these in different proportions, and if Norton's overall focus has shifted over time (which it has)? That's entirely removed from any point I had, as I never compared myself to K in the way you mistakenly perceived.

As for Poker scene from that episode of Louie you mentioned, I've seen it, and I don't see it as a deviation from his earlier position--just an admonition (maybe as a conceit to feared misinterpretation of the stand up bits?) that the word still retains the potential to hurt, but mostly an assertion that context and intent always take precedence. Words need not remain shackled and can grow/change/be reclaimed etc.

Further, on the "white guy just-tellin-it-like-it-is routine" label - Would you honestly claim that description doesn't apply to much of bsc's content? (No negative implication). And yet here you (and I) are, utterly addicted and constantly returning for more. So I fail to see how it really applies as insult (clearly the intent) with regards to me.

The Magic Schtick (Ghost of Dan Gordon-Levitt) said...

that last one's part of a two parter for you, lil' James - but blogger erased it about three times in a row, and came before the reply to Sean. Maybe it'll 'stick' this time.

Jack Hardy said...

I saw that picture of you, James, and your t-shirt said no such thing. Pooh Bear looked to be enjoying himself, though.

james bliss said...

Why, if some or much of BSC's content fell under the rubric of a 'white guy just-tellin'-like-it-is', a rubric that I (apparently) take issue with, one might then expect for my participation in the sock drawer to consistently reflect a critique of straight white male privilege...

...but that clearly isn't the case, so maybe I should just reiterate my last point about transference and wish, in parting, that you would spend more time reading and less time projecting your own issues onto the things you read--like when you project a 16 year old anti-flag fan onto a 23 year old activist with 3 degrees in political and cultural theory (not to boast, but I am [technically] credentialed enough to have even a lazy opinion).

There's obviously a very frightened little boy inside of you('re home), and I pity him.

limited nobility said...

Your initial beef was a that a guy who literally has the word schtick in his screen name was doing schtick and it only got more muddled and awkward from there.Now go have coffee with one of your numerous female "friends" and do the best to steer the conversation towards how the dude that they are fucking is far to daft/inconsiderate for them

bah humbug

The Magic Schtick (Ghost of Dan Gordon-Levitt) said...

You know, Mr. Bliss, had I not bothered going into courteous detail about both why you made the faggot list (faggot, in your context, meaning "smug prick who generally has the right idea, but with his head so far up his ass he can't be troubled to consider a view that deviates from his own"; sexuality/femininity doesn't even enter the equation here, despite your fervent insistence to the contrary) and not expanded upon my (very deliberate) decision to go with said term to start with--as a springboard for another (admittedly terribly unoriginal) point--like I did--then this whole tired, "You're actually a frightened man/boy terrified by scary prospects re: your own sexuality, thus your 'faggot' compulsion" routine you insist upon miiiight make some semblance of sense.
Buuut, since if you've read any of my replies (a very real suspicion actually), it's painfully obvious this isn't the case, I've no choice but to lean to the very observation cited above as your impetus.

The "teen who just found social inequality/leftism" description was uh, clearly just that, btw--a description of how your persona strikes me on here, not a literal speculation/accusation of age--the man standing next to pooh is quite clearly early-to-mid 20s. But I see you've (dishonestly) capitalized on that by conveniently using it as a springboard for your qualifications! (In a regal tone): Duly noted sir!

But hey, at least with these last few replies ("good thing my shirt saaaays!..." included) you definitely haven't continued to completely, utterly play to type in the way I mentioned before or anything, and neither the aforementioned quip nor haughty flashing of your credentials (whoa--I see you've...drank way more coffee than me!) are sterling examples of precisely what I speak of. Naaah. But real quick, what's the minimum number of degrees required for a valid opinion again? You kind of glossed over that one.

I'm thrilled at your concession that so much of bsc does fall into the "straight white guy gettin down n spittin it" schtick, but this of course leads me somewhat confused at the (utterly asinine) dichotomy between your persona here ("shades" of overcooked leftist elitism wankery) and your apparent rampant consumption of the blog itself. Just a masochist? Just a prick? Just a...faggot?
