2020.03.26 03:35 echotamar [Steven Universe Fandom] Statutory Rape & Attempted Suicide: The Tale of the SU Fandom’s Very Own Ariadna Juarez

(A note before I begin: As a matter of full disclosure, I was involved in the SU community at the time and had some involvement in the drama. This write-up removes my personal involvement in order to be as objective as possible.)
Hi folks! I am a long-time fan of this subreddit and have decided to contribute something. This story brings us to the always-interesting Steven Universe fandom. However, today’s story has less to do with the insane whims of the fanbase and more to do with the doomed relationship between two content creators in the early days of the fandom. What started innocently enough would lead to possible sexual misconduct, the collapse of the relationship, and the attempted suicide of a third party, among other things.
Also, for those of you who don't know, Ariadna Juarez is a Youtuber who got in trouble for her relationship with a 13-year-old. She was 18 at the time of the controversy. With that out of the way, enjoy!

PROLOGUE: There Were These Two Writers on…

To protect privacy, I have changed the names of the involved parties.
Our first party, henceforth known as Sadie, was involved with the fandom since the very beginning, having authored one of the first stories in the show’s (FFN) archive (which dates to around November 2013). The second party, who we’ll call Lars, joined about one month later. Sadie and Lars were both prominent writers in the early days of the SU FFN community, and the two quickly became friends. The third party, who will be known as Amethyst, joined the community in January 2014, and became friends with both Sadie and Lars. A few months go by, Lars and Sadie continue to correspond, and the two eventually declare a long-distance-relationship in early April of 2014. Sadie and Lars frequently wrote about their love for each other in the author’s notes and made art for each other on DeviantArt (DA) as dedications. So you have two fanfiction writers who are being cute to each other – what’s not to like?
Well, maybe things looked okay on the surface, but there was one major issue: age. You see, Sadie was 19 and Lars was 15. You’ll notice that one of those numbers is over the age of consent and the other isn’t. The age gap is also too wide for Romeo and Juliet laws. None of this would be an issue if the two keep their minds out of the gutter. The problem is that they’re not doing that, and the sexual edge of the relationship became quite apparent. On Sadie’s end, among other things, she:
· Claimed to have used a side pillow as a masturbating aid while thinking about him.
· Made numerous suggestive artwork geared toward him, including one featuring their avatars kissing. Lars’s avatar was implied to have a boner in this picture.
· Filled out and posted a questionnaire on DA that included several questions about how and where they would have sex.
· Referred to Lars as her “soulmate” on multiple occasions and public mused proposing to him on at least one occasion. Keep in mind, they’ve never met each other and he’s 15.
Lars also engaged in sexual behavior, writing sex fics dedicated to her and going along with Sadie’s sexually charged tendencies, including filling out the same questionnaire that she did and posting it to his own DA. All of this aroused (pun not intended) the concern of Amethyst. She began pushing Lars to end the relationship, while also trying to get Sadie to stop the sexual behavior.
Regardless of Amethyst’s efforts, the relationship continued unchanged until late September 2014, when Lars announced that he was going to write one more story and then leave the community, citing a diminishing interest in Steven Universe. Sadie was very upset but promised to support him and even mulled ghostwriting for him once he had left. Unbeknownst to everyone, there was a firestorm waiting.

The Ship Hits the Fan

On November 9th, 2014, Sadie made a DA journal asking why Lars had blocked her on FFN and DA. The next day, she made another post announcing the breakup and mulling about how betrayed she felt. What happened next? Whoo boy…
· Several people questioned Sadie’s behavior during the relationship. One person went in a detailed legal reasoning about her behavior, while Amethyst went in hard on Sadie in a bullfight that spread into DMs.
· Lars unblocked her and went in guns a-blazing in the comments, stating that he never loved her and that she should go to jail. Sadie fired back, arguing that he had never expressed any concern about her behavior and that she wanted to strangle him. This back-and-forth lasted a while, but there seemed to be movement toward some kind of reconciliation toward the end, with Lars suggesting that they could try again in the future.
· Amethyst immediately swooped in and cried bullshit at reconciliation, calling Sadie a pervert and Lars a [insert not-nice word use to refer to a mentally challenged person]. Lars immediately went turncoat and turned fire back on at Sadie. This ended with them blocking each other.
At this point, with the comments section a bloodbath, Sadie nuked the post. With the relationship now ended, both tried to move on. Sadie went back to making art, Lars lingered around in the community but didn’t publish anything over the next month. Meanwhile, Amethyst turned to trying to get Sadie’s creative accounts banned but was unsuccessful. She urged Lars to report her, but he refused. She then pressured him to report her. Amethyst put out a DA post at the end of November publicly detailing Sadie's actions over the course of the relationship. Perhaps this motivated what happened next.
On December 13th, 2014, Lars deleted his DA account. Meanwhile, over on FFN, Amethyst and Lars got into a shouting match over this decision that ended with him telling her to get out of his life. Shortly after this, Amethyst posted a DA journal that was effectively a suicide note. Despite the pleas of people in the comments, she ended up cutting her wrists open. While she survived the suicide attempt, she was in a hospital for some time. She eventually returned to the community.

EPILOGUE: Ariadna Juarez Future

At this point, the worst of the drama was over. Each of the three went their own separate ways over time.
· Sadie’s DA account eventually got banned because of these and other events that had occurred over the life of the relationship. Her FFN account still exists and remains active.
· Lars ended up reactivating his DA account sometime later, and although he hung around the community for a few more months, he didn’t produce any new fanfiction. He eventually deleted his DA account again and wiped his FFN account as well.
· Amethyst made a full recovery and remained active on FFN and DA for a number of years. She is no longer involved in the community.
So, what can we learn from this? Probably nothing. At least it’s not boring.
TL;DR: Relationship of questionable legality between two fanfiction writer ends in extremely messy/public breakup and leads to the attempted suicide of a third party.

Early Life
Harvey was born on January 17, 1957,[4][5] in Welch, West Virginia, and is the son of Jesse Harvey, a coal miner, and Eloise Vera.[6] His first name is Broderick, named after actor Broderick Crawford of the TV series Highway Patrol.[2] Harvey's family moved to Cleveland, Ohio, living on East 112th Street, which was renamed Steve Harvey Way in 2015.[7] He graduated from Glenville High School in 1974.[7]
Shortly after high school, he attended Kent State University and West Virginia University and is a member of Omega Psi Phi fraternity.
Early career and comedy Harvey has been a boxer, an autoworker, an insurance salesman, a carpet cleaner, and a mailman.[6][8][9] He first performed stand-up comedy on October 8, 1985, at the Hilarities Comedy Club in Cleveland, Ohio. In the late '80s, Harvey was homeless for three years.[10] He slept in his 1976 Ford when not performing gigs that provided a hotel, and he showered at gas stations or swimming pool showers.[11] Rich and Becky Liss helped Harvey during this time with a contract for carpet cleaning and credit at a travel agency.[12]
1990–2009; Move to television and film
Harvey was a finalist in the Second Annual Johnnie Walker National Comedy Search performing on April 16, 1990, eventually leading to a long stint as host of It's Showtime at the Apollo, succeeding Mark Curry in that role. His success as a stand-up comedian led to a starring role on the short-lived ABC show Me and the Boys in 1994.[13] He would later star on the WB network show, The Steve Harvey Show, which ran from 1996 to 2002.[13] While popular, the show never achieved critical acclaim outside of the African-American community.[14]
In 1997, Harvey continued his work in stand-up comedy, performing on the Kings of Comedy tour along with Cedric the Entertainer, D.L. Hughley, and Bernie Mac. The tour became the highest grossing comedy tour in history, grossing $18 million its first year and $19 million its second.[15] The comedy act would later be put together into a film by Spike Lee called The Original Kings of Comedy.[16] That title was also used as the name of his comedy and variety television show (later renamed Steve Harvey's Big Time Challenge), which aired on The WB network from 2003 until 2005.[17]
Harvey is the host of The Steve Harvey Morning Show, a weekday morning radio program he has hosted since 2000.[18] It was originally syndicated through Radio One Inc. from September 2000 until May 2005.[citation needed] As of 2019, the show is syndicated through the United States.[18]
He had appeared in the 2003 movie The Fighting Temptations alongside Cuba Gooding Jr. and Beyoncé Knowles.[19] The same year he played the role of Clarence Johnson in the film Love Don't Cost a Thing.[20] In 2014 he had roles in the films Johnson Family Vacation and You Got Served;[21] and, in 2005, he co-starred in the movie Racing Stripes as the voice of Buzz.[22]
In 2006, Harvey released the stand-up special Steve Harvey: Don't Trip... He Ain't Through with Me Yet directed by Leslie Small. The special was filmed at MegaFest with Harvey not using profanity during the show.[23] In 2008, Harvey hosted the Disney Dreamers Academy, a teen-focused personal and professional enrichment event that took place January 17–20, 2008, at the Walt Disney World Resort in Lake Buena Vista, Florida.[24]
Harvey released the book Act Like a Lady, Think Like a Man in 2009. The book is about how men think about women and relationships.[25] Based on the book, the 2012 film Think Like a Man, is an ensemble romantic comedy depicting characters taking advice on dating from the book.[26] The hardcover version spent 64 weeks on the New York Times best-seller list, 23 of those weeks at No. 1.[27]
2010 to 2016; Family Feud and other ventures
Harvey began hosting Family Feud in September 2010.[6][28] The show has seen improved ratings under Harvey,[29] and he has surpassed every previous Feud host to date in length of consecutive tenures.[30] Harvey also hosts Celebrity Family Feud, where celebrities compete for a chance to donate up to $25,000 to their favorite charity. The show airs during the summer on ABC.[31]
On August 2, 2012, Harvey performed his final stand-up act at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas, ending a 27-year career as a stand-up comedian. The two-hour performance was broadcast live on Pay-Per-View. “The road to this final show has been an amazing journey, doing stand-up for the past 27 years, and I can’t thank fans enough after reflecting on all those years on stage,” he said.[32][33] The same year, Harvey debuted a self-titled syndicated talk show produced by Endemol and distributed by NBCUniversal Television Distribution at the NBC Tower in Chicago.[34]
In 2013, Harvey became the first double host nominated for a Daytime Emmy Award, receiving nominations for both Outstanding Talk Show Host and Outstanding Game Show Host.[35] He was also honored with a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.[36] The following year, Harvey launched a new dating website called Delightful. It is a joint venture with IAC with Harvey supplying articles and videos for the site.[37]
In December 2015, Harvey hosted the Miss Universe 2015 pageant in Las Vegas. Upon announcing the final results, he mistakenly named the first runner-up, Miss Colombia (Ariadna Gutiérrez) as the winner. A few minutes after she was crowned, Harvey announced that he had read the results incorrectly and that Miss Philippines (Pia Wurtzbach) was the new Miss Universe.[38] He apologized to Wurtzbach outside the venue and later tweeted an apology to both contestants.[39][40][41] Harvey also hosted the Miss Universe 2016 pageant in the Philippines on January 30, 2017, telling the Miss Universe Organization that he wanted to personally apologize to the Filipinos for the incident that occurred in the last Miss Universe pageant he hosted.[42] He returned as host for the Miss Universe 2017 pageant in Las Vegas on November 26, 2017 and the Miss Universe 2018 pageant in Thailand on December 17, 2018.[43]
In January 2016, Harvey gave a motivational speech to audience members after the taping of an episode of Family Feud. He theme of the speech was for people to embrace the skills they were born with. He references embracing the gifts with jumping from a cliff and relying on the parachute (those gifts) to help you.[44] The speech was the motivation for the book Leap: Take the Leap of Faith to Achieve Your Life of Abundance, published by Harvey in 2016.[45]
In October 2016, it was announced that Harvey would host two revival specials of Showtime at the Apollo for Fox.[46] In November 2016, the Steve Harvey talk show was cancelled, and it was announced that Harvey had reached a deal with IMG to produce a new syndicated talk show in Los Angeles with NBCUniversal. The new series, Steve, premiered in September 2017, and was described as having more of a celebrity and comedy oriented format with a larger amount of creative control held by Harvey, as opposed to the previous program's larger focus on human interest subjects. To facilitate the new series, production of Harvey's radio show and Family Feud were relocated to L.A.[47][48]
Harvey is the co-creator of Little Big Shots, a series launched in 2016 and executive produced by him and Ellen DeGeneres.[49] The series features children demonstrating talents and engaging in conversation with Harvey. Harvey hosted the show until 2019.[50]
2017 to present; Steve Harvey Global Harvey united all of his businesses under Steve Harvey Global (SHG) in 2017.[51] Brands under SHG include East One Twelve, Harvey's in-house production company that is used to develop digital content, films, and television.

The event has been held yearly and features live music, comedy, and a question and answers session with Harvey and his wife Marjorie.[54] He also launched Harvey Events, a special events company led by his daughter Morgan Hawthorne and son-in-law Kareem Hawthorne. It has produced events such as the FroRibbean Fest in Atlanta in 2018.[55]
In 2017, Harvey began hosting a New Year's Eve special from Times Square for Fox (which, like his talk show, would be produced in partnership with IMG).[56] Two days before the broadcast, Harvey was ordained in the state of New York so he could officiate an on-air wedding between Keven Undergaro and Maria Menounos during the special.[57] The special was Fox's most-watched New Year's Eve broadcast to date.[58]
In 2019, Harvey announced the launch of a learning hub called Vault.[59] He also spoke at the first Vault conference held in Los Angeles.[60] He also invested in the takeover of HDNet along with Anthem Sports & Entertainment.

Politics In August 2011, on his radio show, Harvey called Cornel West and Tavis Smiley "Uncle Toms" because of their criticism of President Barack Obama.[73] Harvey later apologized for using the slur but maintained his criticism of West and Smiley.[74][75] In January 2017, Harvey was met with backlash from some in the African-American community for his decision to meet with then-President elect Donald Trump. He defended his decision, citing that it would help spark positive changes.[76]
Comments about atheists Harvey has received criticism for a May 30, 2009, book interview he gave on Larry King Live, which was guest-hosted by Joy Behar.[77] During that interview, he asserted that women should not date atheists who, he claimed, have no "moral barometer." He opined that atheists are "idiot[s]" and stated that his usual response to discussions with atheists is to walk away.[78][79]
Racial comments about Asian men In January 2017, Steve Harvey made jokes on Steve Harvey about Asian men, ridiculing the idea that any white woman or black woman would want to date them. "Excuse me, do you like Asian men?" he said, "No, thank you." He went on to add, "I don't even like Chinese food."[80] The remarks were met with criticism from Asian Americans, including New York politicians and author Eddie Huang.[81][82] For instance, Huang remarked about Harvey's hypocrisy in speaking about issues facing the black community while denigrating Asians.[82][83] Harvey apologized on his talk show and Twitter, saying: "I offer my humblest apology for offending anyone, particularly those in the Asian community. … It was not my intention, and the humor was not meant with any malice or disrespect whatsoever."[84] However, he also earlier said, "I ain’t been laughing that much over the past few days. They’re kinda beating me up on the internet right now for no reason. But, you know, that’s life, ain’t it?"[85]
Comments about Flint water crisis In response to a caller from Flint, Michigan, who insulted the Cleveland Cavaliers after their loss to the Golden State Warriors, Harvey, a Cavaliers fan, told the caller to "go have yourself a nice glass of brown water!" in reference to the city's water crisis. The joke was criticized by, among others, Amariyanna Copeny and Flint Mayor Karen Weaver, who demanded a public apology. Harvey responded by saying, "The caller and I were talking trash about our teams and cities. Simply trash talking about sports. I made a joke directed at him, as he is from Flint, a city for which I have great affection and respect. So much so that I devoted a full hour on my daytime talk show to raising awareness for the Flint water crisis. … The caller laughed, as my joke was taken in the context it was offered."
Harvey is the founder of the Steve & Marjorie Harvey Foundation, a philanthropic organization that provides youth outreach services.[88] The foundation hosts a yearly camp for fatherless children[89] and also partnered with Kent State University to provide scholarships to the school.[90] Harvey is also a partner with Walt Disney World Resort and Essence for the Disney Dreamers Academy, a yearly workshop at Walt Disney World for 100 students.
Personal Life
Harvey has been married three times and has seven children (four biological and three stepchildren). From his first marriage, to Marcia Harvey, he has two daughters (twins Brandi and Karli) and one son (Broderick Harvey Jr.).[92][8][93] From his second marriage, to Mary Shackelford, Harvey has another son named Wynton.[94][95][96] The couple divorced in November 2005.[97] In 2011, Collin County, Texas-based 199th District Court Judge Robert Dry expressed concern about Mary Harvey spreading false information about the divorce, with the judge suggesting that she had not been left materially destitute.[98][99]
In June 2007, Harvey married Marjorie Bridges, who he says is responsible for making him a better man and changing his life. Marjorie Harvey is mother to three children (Morgan, Jason, and Lori [96]), all of whom Steve adopted. Steve and Marjorie have five grandchildren: three through Jason's marriage to his wife Amanda, one through Morgan's marriage to her husband Kareem, and one through Karli's marriage to husband Ben.[100] Through 2017, Harvey and his family divided their time between Atlanta, where his radio show was broadcast and Family Feud was recorded, and Chicago, where he hosted his talk show for NBCUniversal from the company's Chicago studios, although he would host his radio show there as well.[101] In 2018, Harvey moved his talk show, radio show, and Family Feud to Los Angeles.[102]
Harvey is a Christian[103] and has attributed his success to his faith in God.[104] Harvey reports that he has followed a vegan diet for health reasons and has presented the rationale for his diet on his TV program.

2017.10.20 21:05 TheGreatZiegfeld [DISCUSSION] My Top Twenty Five Favorite Albums of September 2017

September is pretty definitively in my eyes the best month of the year so far in terms of music releases. So much so, in fact, there have been a lot of big releases I passed over in order to get this list out at all. METZ, Wolf Alice, Motorpsycho, Phoebe Bridgers, Leyland Kirby’s ninety minute album under his own name, even Benjamin Clementine I unfortunately missed as a result of such a fantastic and varied month.
This entire list is here to convince you that I spent my time wisely. Let’s hope I succeed in doing so. If not, I’ll always have the end of the year to catch up.
Oh, and I decided to not include album covers for the sake of saving ten to twenty minutes of my time. If you really miss them, just let me know and I’ll bring them back for the next installment.


Death from Above - Outrage! Is Now (Indie Rock)
Of course even in not having the time for METZ, I did explore some of my own country’s more acclaimed releases, and this happened to be one of them. Nothing mind-blowing, both in and out of the context of the band’s previous work, but the energetic and punk leanings of the group bring with them some fun tracks worth trying.
Favorite Track: Statues
Sparks - Hippopotamus (Art Pop)
Legends in the history of art pop, Sparks’ new album can feel inconsistent and self-indulgent, but their most extravagant levels of experimentation show not only the influence the group has had over the years, but also the appeal that brought them their acclaim in the first place.
Favorite Track: What the Hell Is It This Time?
Kedr Livanskiy - Ariadna (Outsider House)
This Russian electronic artist doesn’t always have the depth and subversion of the artists that preceded her, but her grasp on house and pop music sometimes flow together quite comfortably and makes for some wonderful atmospheric tracks. I am really excited for what she does next, and maybe she’ll go down the route of Jane Weaver, or go fully into the abstract for later releases. But for now, Ariadna is a decent album with a tremendous amount of paths for her future.
Favorite Track: Your Name
Deerhoof - Mountain Moves (Indie Rock)
The prolific and well-liked Deerhoof collaborate with a number of artists on this newest album, including Juana Molina and Xenia Rubinos, for a weaker but daring album in their catalogue. A group of largely quick and punchy tracks that don’t always leave a huge impression, but fascinate in that most every song has an interesting concept or idea, even if it falls flat in execution. Not a perfect experiment, but a commendable one by Deerhoof.
Favorite Track: Begin Countdown


Giant Claw - Soft Channel (Sound Collage)
One of several well-received Orange Milk Records releases in the past two months or so, Soft Channel can be a sometimes frustrating album in how it so often carries rhythms that is simply loses in other sounds and noises. However, the eccentricities and variation can really build some tracks into oddly brilliant groupings of swirling samples and the occasional rhythm drawing you back in.
Favorite Track: Soft Channel 006
Mogwai - Every Country’s Sun (Post-Rock)
Legendary post-rock group Mogwai obviously isn’t at the peak of their talents here, and it doesn’t have the nuance or variation of the best post-rock albums of the year. But the beautiful structures and instrumentation, even if sometimes plodding or redundant, still grabs the sense of largeness the genre can so often excel at. Mogwai may no longer be at their greatest, but they still know to some extent why they got the acclaim they did.
Favorite Track: Don’t Believe the Fife
Mount Kimbie - Love What Survives (Indietronica)
An electronic album incorporating elements of indie rock, pop, ambient, and punk in various ways. This gives the album a ton of variety to work with, but unfortunately it does leave it to sometimes feel aimless. With two terrific features from James Blake and appearances from King Krule and Mica Levi, sometimes Mount Kimbie takes a backseat in their sound, and feels a bit unaffecting without the better known star amidst them. Despite all of this, their skills in electronic music and their wide array of variety does make for an entertaining album, one that comfortably fits whatever style it wears.
Favorite Track: We Go Home Together
Moses Sumney - Aromanticism (Art Pop)
A stunning debut from the incredibly talented Moses Sumney, disregarding most conventions of his respective genres and styles in exchange for his own eye for structure. Sumney proves his skills unbelievably well, though with high ambitions comes some issues, largely in an occasionally plodding or unmotivated sound in a number of tracks. A few brilliant songs do prove not only his performance talent but also his ear for great music, he just needs to refine those skills as a songwriter before he will probably blow us away in his sophomore effort.
Favorite Track: Quarrel


25. Zola Jesus - Okovi (Darkwave)
Zola Jesus’ Okovi may very well be her most acclaimed full-length album to date, seemingly only rivalled in that category by 2011’s Conatus. An incredible singer, backed by some tension-building waves of sound and instrumentation, Zola Jesus easily sounds best backed by the most extravagant of noise. Unfortunately, some of these songs seem either lacking in any sort of progression, or just don’t reach any interesting or satisfying heights. Yet while there might be slower and boring parts to this album, when it picks back up, it really carries along with it a real sense of power and urgency.
Favorite Track: Exhumed
24. Ben Frost - The Centre Cannot Hold (Post-Industrial)
A minimal set of tracks that at first intrigues, but slowly grows a bit too long for my tastes… at least until you discover what it’s all building towards. The final two songs of the album are extraordinary, and make the entire, admittedly overlong album feel all the more worthwhile in context and upon relisten. Even down to such a simply conflicted title and cover, Frost knows how to slowly build anxiousness into something frightening.
Favorite Track: Entropy in Blue
23. Iglooghost - Neo Wax Bloom (Wonky)
Wild, eccentrically filled with layers of samples and sounds building and bursting around each other, almost like an amalgamation of some crazed musical culture or mind. Obviously as someone who enjoyed Jlin’s attempt earlier this year at doing something similar but much more stripped down and tribal, Iglooghost’s effort at the same idea comes across as more complicated and media-centric. It has been criticized somewhat for its “ADD-core” sound, but that type of aggression is partially the power Iglooghost has. I may prefer the first half of the album heavily over the second half, and Iglooghost’s vocal samples can range from decently fun to downright lazy, but Iglooghost’s music, specifically on this album, speaks to consumerist culture. Not in an obviously politically slanted or biased fashion, but by representing the speed and aggressive nature of consumption. It’s definitely one of the most colorful electronic efforts in a while.
Favorite Track: Super Ink Burst
22. Hundred Waters - Communicating (Art Pop)
Among the warmest albums of the year, Communicating is sort of like the pool that stands just above the biggest party of the year. At times the album can fall into conventions and lull itself along that line a little too long, but largely Hundred Waters really expresses a comfortably fun and atmospheric art pop sound that absolutely deserves more attention.
Favorite Track: Blanket Me
21. Angelo Badalamenti - Twin Peaks: Limited Event Series Soundtrack (Ambient)
These compositions often sound better in the show in which they were created for, and as an album it’s a bit inconsistent by itself. Despite all of this, this soundtrack delivers some terrific ambient and jazz tracks, both old and new, that largely sound terrific by themselves, even if the added context of the show’s emotional draw would better represent them.
Favorite Track: Night
20. Greg Fox - The Gradual Progression (Nu Jazz)
The underground jazz album everyone seemed to talk about for a week and then never bothered to hear, Fox might be better known to you for his fantastic drumming with groups like Liturgy and Ex Eye, and also on one-album album credits like with Ben Frost’s album A U R O R A. And yet the world didn’t seem ready for an experimental electronic jazz album by that drummer who was on a metal album with Colin Stetson of all people. And now that it’s out, I’d like to tell you that despite its oddities and eccentricities, The Gradual Progression is a fascinating little album with a wide array of sounds and styles. Fox doesn’t abide by the standards of melody much of the time, but he definitely makes something really cool to listen to. Well worth your time if you enjoy diving into the abstract.
Favorite Track: My House of Equalizing Predecessors
19. Chelsea Wolfe - Hiss Spun (Gothic Rock)
Wolfe’s progression into doom metal earned her a ton of acclaim from critics and metal fans alike, and her newest album shows her further enveloping herself in the sound she sounds so comfortable in. The occasional diversions she takes from the style do sound slightly awkward alongside the heavy, pounding sound of her doom metal stylings, but most of Hiss Spun keeps to what she does best.
Favorite Track: Scrape
18. Rapsody - Laila’s Wisdom (Hip-Hop)
Similarly to Ben Frost’s newest album, Rapsody’s album may feel slightly overlong until it seems to come full circle in structure and sound. Rapsody not only holds the lengthier album well, but she also has on her newest album multiple incredible features, from Anderson .Paak sounding as good as he ever did, to Terrace Martin getting the attention he so often deserves. Rapsody may not have the skills to not be overshadowed by her features, but she definitely knows how to hold her own at least, not looking out of place compared to the all-stars she sits next to. By her next album, she’ll most likely be one of them herself.
Favorite Track: Power
17. Alex Cameron - Forced Witness (Synthpop)
Arrogant, addictive synthpop from the entertaining “character” that is Alex Cameron. Really doing the genre justice with little to no missteps, taking himself seriously when needed but also with a silly sense of humor. Borrowing heavily from the strengths of the 1980’s with very few of the issues, the highlight of Forced Witness is easily the debut with the amazing Angel Olsen that not only sounds like a piece from that decade, but also one of the best sounding songs of that era. It’s a shame these two came around so late, but the edge they bring, specifically Cameron on this entire album, makes them a product of both times. And some of the best products of either.
Favorite Track: Stranger’s Kiss
16. The Clientele - Music for the Age of Miracles (Indie Pop)
To those who’ve known The Clientele for a while, it’s easy to say they’re the perfect Autumn band, and this album is no exception whatsoever. Even in its slower and weaker moments, the reflective, calmer atmosphere from the album harmonizing and strumming as it does, is something not so often heard in pop music anymore, but can still sound incredible when done well. The Clientele does it extremely well.
Favorite Track: The Neighbour
15. Open Mike Eagle - Brick Body Kids Still Daydream (Abstract Hip-Hop)
While not every abstract hip-hop album from this year completely won me over, Open Mike Eagle manages to capture my attention moreso than other admirable artists like Milo, Wiki, or Shabazz Palaces, at least in this year, because he best knows the difference between sounding used to a scenario, and sounding bored of one. Open Mike Eagle can get emotional, but when he’s used to something, he sounds much more tired or subtly angry. He has an emotiveness and a variety to him that sets him apart and sounds ripped from the streets and schools he’s rapping about.
Favorite Track: No Selling (Uncle Butch Pretend It Don’t Hurt)
14. Godspeed You! Black Emperor - Luciferian Towers (Post-Rock)
More concrete and obvious than their earlier and more acclaimed albums, Luciferian Towers expresses itself much more fully and immediately. While it may not be as poignant as their best work, it instead comes with a new intensity and a new power to it, cultivating wider arrays of sound and noise that culminate into something a little more wild and unhinged. It’s a new direction, but a creative and exciting one for the group.
Favorite Track: Bosses Hang
13. Dalek - Endangered Philosophies (Industrial Hip-Hop)
Speaking earlier about abstract hip-hop with Open Mike Eagle’s new album, Dalek comes with some similar charms, but instead of speaking knowingly about harshness in a way known too well, Dalek feels like the soundtrack to that harshness. Even when the lyrical standards don’t always impress, the atmosphere is unbelievably vivid and haunting, viciously collapsing an aggressive hip-hop style with ambient sounds exploring the troubled environment. It’s a creeping album, and instead of always speaking the truth, you hear it and see it quite clearly here.
Favorite Track: The Son of Immigrants
12. Archspire - Relentless Mutation (Technical Death Metal)
Cartoonishly bombastic, working speeds and sounds masterfully into something wickedly entertaining. Even the strained and groaned vocals feel fitting in their odd malicious energy perfectly punching their way through the instrumentation. Fully embracing its strange sound comes with everything sliding into place satisfyingly. Most theatrical metal albums I find to be a bit over-the-top and not completely holding together, but Archspire entertains so much because of their precision and their strange extravagance.
Favorite Track: Remote Tumour Seeker
11. The Horrors - V (Neo-Psychedelia)
Do you remember when I said Hundred Waters soundtracked a comfortable pool sitting above a great party? Well The Horrors soundtracks the ups and downs of that very party. Not that it sounds like any party going on nowadays, but the complexities and energy of each song fits quite a few scenarios, whether upbeat or downbeat. It also features one of my favorite happy closing tracks in a long time. In all its goofy glory, it finds the same brilliant sound that The New Pornographer’s We’ve Been Here Before did earlier in the year.
Favorite Track: Something To Remember Me By
10. Bicep - Bicep (Deep House)
Colorful house stylings from Bicep on their debut album, after a large number of EPs spanning the entire decade up to this point. They luckily built up enough attention to give this album the attention it deserved upon release, as it’s a lively and beautiful bit of electronic music, really capturing the spirit of experimenting and perfecting the genre.
Favorite Track: Glue
9. Four Tet - New Energy (Microhouse)
Speaking of the genre, Four Tet is yet another modern music legend with a new album out in September, and while it is more relaxed than Bicep’s s/t, the color in production is still beautifully apparent. Slowly moving sounds across and around each other in a spacious environment, it may not have the energy that its title suggests, but it is anything but boring.
Favorite Track: LA Trance
8. Alvvays - Antisocialites (Indie Pop)
If there’s one theme I think holds true for a bunch of September’s best releases, from Four Tet to Bicep, Hundred Waters to The Clientele, it’s a real comfort in the sound even upon first release. And of all these albums, Alvvays might just do it best. Fronted by the already iconic voice of Molly Rankin, Alvvays released one of the warmest albums in a while. It makes me happy. It makes you happy. I’m glad we’re happy.
Favorite Track: Forget About Life
7. Ariel Pink - Dedicated to Bobby Jameson (Hypnagogic Pop)
Not as outsider based as something like Pom Pom, Ariel Pink’s awkward, lo-fi style soars to some sort of imperfect glory, never striving to be more than it is, but always having enough to impress. There’s a real charm to it, and one that while never perfect, never holds off on effort either. Ariel Pink is one of indie’s more popular names, but here he sounds like the underdog. Again, that’s part of the ridiculous charm this album has.
Favorite Track: Feels Like Heaven
6. Machine Girl - ...Because Im Young Arrogant and Hate Everything You Stand For (Digital Hardcore)
Vicious, all-caps electronic-punkish work from the somewhat mysterious artist Machine Girl, who earned much of her popularity from her debut album in 2014, WLFGRL. This third album is relentless in sound and screaming, with even mediocre lyricism given this new plain of importance while in front of such bizarre, frantic production. It’s rebellious, but rarely immature.
5. The Caretaker - Everywhere at the End of Time Stage 3 (Ambient)
As this series continues, these beautiful samples of British Dance Band songs grow more and more distant and disturbed, lost to time and to memory. Stage 1 began rather unaffected, Stage 2 grows the slightest bit more experimental, but Stage 3 shows a thought to be degrading into something terrifying, jagged, and still nostalgic all the same. It’s a freakish series by The Caretaker, but beautiful in its honesty.
Favorite Track: And Heart Breaks
4. The National - Sleep Well Beast (Indie Rock)
Like Grizzly Bear or The War on Drugs not too long ago, it’s easy to let music such as this blend together into one long song if you don’t really pay attention. However, the beautiful track-by-track details give a real purpose in listening to each song individually, or in the context of the larger work. Sleep Well Beast’s songs can be lively as well as brooding, revisiting their old material in some ways, and expanding to new avenues in other ways. I couldn’t ask for much more from an aging band but to sound as good as this does.
Favorite Track: The System Only Dreams in Total Darkness
3. Protomartyr - Relatives in Descent (Post-Punk)
An album as worn as it is electric, walls of sound building and flowing into something viciously cynical and timeless even when detailing modern conflicts. Its sound can quickly strike, but it also forms itself even larger slowly and monstrously into this behemoth we haven’t seen in post-punk probably in a few years. The massiveness of Protomartyr’s new album amidst a grittier outlook is one of the most interesting perspectives from sound the year has had. It does work much better as an album rather than individual songs, but either will do you wonderfully.
Favorite Track: The Chuckler
2. Susanne Sundfor - Music for People In Trouble (Art Pop)
Sundfor, not so much with lyrics and more with song structure, has written what very well might be the most satisfying and beautiful sounding albums of the year. How each song progresses, no matter how long or short or what she says, moves at such an inspiring and heavenly pace. Her lyrics can be sometimes juvenile, but nevertheless she always seems awestruck or vivid in each detail she mentions. Mountaineers is contender for song of the year, with the album’s only major feature John Grant performing the first two minutes of build-up, before handing the song to Sundfor for one of the most gorgeous conclusions to an album I know of. In my opinion of course, and it might be too early to tell. But with the God-like impressions some artists get in the indie scene, as long as that always exists, I hope Sundfor gets considered in the same light by others. She’s one of my personal favorites in the past few years, as is this entire album.
Favorite Track: Mountaineers
1. LCD Soundsystem - American Dream (Dance-Punk)
Even as someone who has largely defied the usual expectations of what the best album of each month is, for once out of the year at least an obvious choice will slip into the #1 spot. Sundfor may have been close, but when looking at what album would fit perfectly on any sort of favorite albums list I someday might create, it’s really a thing that only happens once every few months, if that. It happened with Jlin, and again with Richard Dawson, and Susanne Sundfor and William Basinski came close. But LCD Soundsystem, with the raw energy of their first two albums, the structural experimentation of This Is Happening which was already a purposeful and powerful progression for the band, American Dream finally defines them as… well, a band. Not just James Murphy making fantastic music, this is James Murphy, with his influences, and people influenced by him and others like him, working off each other and making the album LCD Soundsystem has been building up towards this whole time, with brilliant album after brilliant album. The crystal clarity might be lost, the raw cowbell jams of SoS may not be as apparent, but in terms of completeness as an album, and in terms of how far along Murphy and his collaborators sound, this in my eyes is probably their most essential. It all comes down to taste for sure, but Murphy’s skills always seemed a breath away from the people who made him who he was, the Bowie’s and the Talking Head’s and the countless others. Here, I think he sounds like good company to those he sees as the best. He just needed all his friends alongside him.
Favorite Track: How Do You Sleep?
Hopefully that all explains why I didn’t listen to all those other albums from September. I’m sure they’re really good too.
And hey, if you like my writing, support me by following me on Letterboxd where I talk about film. Also, you can help by sharing my write-ups with other subreddits or communities. I love seeing other people enjoy what I have to say, so spreading this around is the least I can ask for from you guys. Aside from upvoting, or leaving a nice comment. Those are cool too.
It’s already October 20th, which means I need to get on that King Krule album. And that Kelela album. And a lot of other albums…
I guess I’ll see you in November. Celebrate my birthday in style, gentlemen and gentlewomen. Until then, listen to these albums, love them, and love yourself, because I can only love you so much.
Stay costly.
...or whatever that phrase is.

Verbum diei hodie est:

namque fluentisono prospectans litore Diae
Thesea cedentem celeri cum classe tuetur

ut pote fallaci quae tunc primum excita somno
desertam in sola miseram se cernat harena.
Here upon Dia's strand wave-resonant, ever-regarding
Theseus borne from sight outside by fleet of the fleetest,
Stands Ariadne with heart full-filled with furies unbated,
Nor can her sense as yet believe she 'spies the espied,
When like one that awakes new roused from slumber deceptive,
Sees she her hapless self lone left on loneliest sandbank

Eddy the Janitor couldn’t be blamed for falling asleep at his desk, situated very conveniently at the entrance of the school. He occasionally caught wind of jokes about his inert figure serving as the “perfect introduction” to the building, but he didn’t really see a problem. He was never reprimanded for it, anyway, and those that passed by, students and faculty, seemed to even appreciate the gesture a bit. It rarely made a difference for him to be awake, anyway: maybe a student would ask him to register their name in the late list, or maybe he would be called to sit in on a class while the teacher stayed home sick. Eddy did not have a very accurate mental map of a computer’s keyboard, and he could barely type one word, let alone an exotic name, in a minute. Eddy did not have an excellent command of adolescents, except by his lack of command: students would often profess to “love” or “aspire to be like” Eddy simply because of all the things he routinely let them get away with. So, Eddy rationalized, it didn’t make much of a difference to be awake or asleep: he was completely unobtrusive either way. In truth, he wasn’t letting anyone get away with anything: there was no such conscious decision. It would just be so much time and so much work to stop someone from cutting class who was probably already failing, anyway, or report a joint to the school guards who would smoke them off-duty. He didn’t know, he didn’t care. Other faculty members would often wonder how and why the students loved this barely-present, inarticulate, stiff-grinned giant of a man. Students would lash out against most faculty members at the drop of a needle, concocting all sorts of elaborate threats, but never Eddy. So as teachers and administrators came and went in periods of as little as a semester, Eddy stayed, sitting at the front desk, usually drifting off into a hazy, mostly dreamless nap.

— Th’s it? All you got t’say?
— I mean... I was really young...
— I’ve got something to say!
— ... A’right, Takahata...
— Okay! I mean, 9/11 was undeniably a tragedy for the three thousand or more that died in the buildings, as well as their immediate relatives, but—but—it was a greater tragedy for those who were persecuted afterwards, those who were and continue to be unfairly profiled as a result, those whose lives and families were destroyed because of America’s immense, r-resultant inferiority complex...
... Look, all I’m saying is that we mustn’t forget our terrorist attacks on Iraq, our campaign of terror in Fallujah, and, of course, the self-destructiveness at the core of it all that resulted just because of one incident... countless more deaths... the resultant fetish for surveillance that caused us to—
— Personal experiences’ere, Takahata.
— —monit- okay, miss...
— ‘Nything to say now?
— ...
... I don’t remember it that clearly... but... I think my school locked us all inside?
— ‘s it?
How about you over there? We don’t see you in class very oft-
Okay, just up’n leave—your grade’s goin’out the door with you...
C’mon! ‘Ere’s one of the greatest tragedies ever on American soil. And you call yourselves New Yorkers?
— Miss, you live on Staten Island. You’re telling us that we’re not New Yorkers?
— Altan!
— I don’t think you know how much you just insulted us in the name of something that we don’t really care a-
— I don’t have to put up with this. Get out!
— Thanks, yo. I’m not boutta subject myself to a minute more of your-
— Thank me when y’fail! Y’ve got it coming!
... Marja?
— ...
... When I saw the twin towers collapse, I cried and cried and cried. I kept looking out the window to see if it was real because it didn’t feel real. I was sad about it for months afterwards. It really traumatized me... I think I got PTSD from it. It was really scary. I still cry about it sometimes.
— ...
... That was good. That was v’ry, v’rrrrrrry good. See what’ye can acc’mlpish?

A Proposition for the Improvement of the American Public School System
An Honors English 11 Argumentative Essay
24 March, 2014
by Kenichi Takahata
  1. Introduction: The Problem
The recent history of the American public school system has been defined by a failure to compete with the rest of the first world. While European students learn American college-level material in high school and Asian students surpass their western counterparts in nearly every practical aspect, American public school students have been observed to lag behind severely in mathematics and lack basic knowledge of their own language on graduation. Anyone, no matter how deficient, can graduate from an American high school. This has made college nearly mandatory for any remotely skilled job. With rapidly inflating college tuition, American students can expect years of debt simply as an inevitability. In order to repair our school system and restore higher education to an optional diversion, a total restructuring of the American public school system is in order.
  1. A Proposal
For higher education to exist as a simple diversion and for high school-level graduates to be employable, a high school diploma must act as an assurance of competence. A high school diploma simply cannot be an assurance of competence when all diplomas are more or less equal and anyone can achieve one. However, if a high school diploma was simply made more difficult to achieve, students would simply be separated into two groups: vaguely employable, and completely unemployable. Those who did achieve a diploma would have little to assure potential employers of their strengths, and thus, college would remain necessary for all those who wished to specialize. Those who did not achieve a diploma would be certified incompetent, and as such, could hope for no more than a manual labor occupation. To be truly valuable beyond the college application process, a high school diploma must not simply assure competence, but rather act as a comprehensive list of a person's strengths and weaknesses. For this to happen, the education system must be more challenging and more forgiving than its current state.
The first change made to the public education system should be is the immediate repeal of No Child Left Behind. Rather than making room for the less gifted, the act has, for the most part, allowed those who do not understand a class' material to leave that class too early. Every subject should be accelerated to the point where students who show deep understanding of a class in a year should be studying Calculus by the time that they are thirteen. These changes would allow students to accelerate and decelerate according to their understanding of each subject and simply receive as much time as they need, eliminating both failings of No Child Left Behind -- the failure to support lesser students and the boredom experienced by more advanced ones. It would also eliminate the social stigma associated with failing, as many students would require extra time for many subjects, which they should very well receive. Graduation should then be set to a certain age, and a student's diploma should list what classes they graduated with. This would turn a high school diploma into an incredibly precise list of skills and eventually make higher education completely optional, perhaps serving as a fall-back for students who graduate with relatively simple classes.
It might be said that this system would increase the stress experienced by students, but the benefits of this system greatly outweigh this risk. The stress experienced by Asian and indeed many European students has been observed to greatly surpass that felt by American students, but Asian and European students are also measured to far surpass their American counterparts. To forgo an improvement in performance because of the risk of hurt feelings is a childish gesture that can, and will, lead to failure. Stress management is an important life skill, and a more stressful education system would do well to teach it to students. If a student cannot handle stress, perhaps that student is not meant to succeed at all.
  1. Conclusion
America's public education system is in drastic need of remodeling in order to catch up with the rest of the world and prevent millions of students from going into debt. A system that adjusts to student's needs in order to better educate them and evaluate their skillset would do well to remedy the situation, but most of all, greater funding must be given to schools. If America wishes to maintain its status as the predominate global superpower, it must begin to treat the next generation's education with the utmost gravity, lest it be surpassed.
Hunched, he fell from the desk to the shelf, from the shelf to the desk, from the desk to the bed, from the bed to the desk. He fell from the monitor to the desk, from the desk to the keyboard, from the keyboard to the mouse, from the mouse to the monitor, from one monitor to the other. Slumped, his hands fell over one device, and then the other, and then the next. He jolted up. Messages. From here to there, all there, none here.

Ignazio Marcello took secret pride in his family’s living-space, especially compared to those of his less concerned friends. It was always neat, always in perfect order. Each room was a perfect gallery, a fetishistic monument organized by silent agreement between all members of the house. A collection of beautiful, vintage crystal glasses lined the kitchen walls, clean and glistening in every way. The members of the Marcello family, even Ignazio, who secretly resented the collection, were known to pull the glasses right out from under guests’ chins as soon as they emptied, wash them again, and hand them right back: to have a dull glass out for even a moment was simply offensive to the household’s aesthetic standards. In the master bedroom stood a variety of vintage broadcast monitors, somehow suspended on thin glass desks, prone to breakage from this exact variety of object. The glow of the cathode ray tubes was diffused by the perpetually spotless white walls and the bright light coming in through the window, so that even when bombarded from all directions, one would never feel trapped: Ignazio’s father had organized the room carefully to achieve this precise effect. Right as one stepped out of this room to the lounge, there were two sofas in an exact ninety degree angle, pushed back together whenever they strayed by more than three degrees. A brilliant collection of science fiction films, spanning every decade of cinema, filled the shelves here: they were organized first by the color of their cases, then by name, then by director, then by year. Houseguests who did not understand this system were always bombarded with immense passive aggression. Much as Ignazio liked to insist that he was different, the first true artist in his family, he populated and inhabited his living-space in much the same way. It was not because of proximity or pressure, for his parents had long ago silently agreed to leave his room alone: he simply liked things this way, and couldn’t explain why. Popular Science-Fiction action figures lined the shelves, each with a designated space, a studio light turned in the shelf’s direction to illuminate every crevice of every figure. Polished clean and presented with the most precise attention to detail that one might find outside of the Chelsea galleries or courts of law, the shelves would be worthy of any world-class collection, were it not for their sweet-sour stench, just as strong on them as it had ever been on Ignazio himself. Ignazio, of course, was not oblivious—how could he be? He noticed it especially strongly from time to time, usually while cleaning, arranging, re-arranging or simply adoring the collection. It had ceased to bother him years ago—he would not allow his collection to be sold in his lifetime, after all. After a few sleepless nights too many of futile attempts to prevent the signature stench from encroaching on his little private gallery, he had decided, in a surrender of sorts, to think of the stench as the mark of his territory. And so it was—whenever a fellow figurine hobbyist was over, or simply a casual admirer, it was always perfectly clear who the statuettes belonged to, now and forevermore.
— yo ignatz
— whats good?
— getting forties you gonna chip in?
— i mean i dont have much cash but ill throw in what i can
— aight
and we celebrate

Zayd? Yeah, I’d consider him a friend. Man, he’s a difficult guy to be around. Fuck it, though—I’ve known him since before middle school. Dude called himself Ezra back then—don’t tell him I told you, though. A lot of shit was different back then. Yo, Metrocards were two bucks when we started middle school. Can you believe that shit? Fuck, what I’d give to ride the subway for two bucks again...
— would ye give... two bucks?
— pfffHHahhahhaHHHHAaa HA!
Aw, shut up, man.
Here is Altan Zayd, standing outside Strauss Arts, close enough for friends to see him as they leave, but at an oblique angle designed to ensure that he won’t be seen by the security guard, pacing back and forth. He is a little bit disappointed that Eddy wasn’t on duty for the front desk today, but hey—you win some, you lose some, right? Beside him stand two freshmen, both of them huge fans of Arson Club. Neither one of them has heard Arson Club, but they’re still fans.
I was a loner at first.
— yeah yeah we remember you sophomore year you dont have to
Yo, this is way back, though.
Zayd, here outside Strauss Arts, two freshman at his side, slowly pulls a slim sheet of paper out of his army-jacket pocket. He glances to his left, to his right, then tears it in half. Turning his head down, he takes one half and scatters clumps of green all across its length in a neater line than he will ever bother to mark on paper with a pen. He rolls the paper, making sure that it is satisfactorily tight, and shoves it in his mouth. The freshmen look on.
My dad wanted me to know like five or six people by the first week, like have really good friends right off the bat or some shit. I dunno why. Maybe he was the same way at that age. Not implausible, you know? Some families got hemophilia—the Takahata line’s affliction is to be a bunch of big ol’ losers.
— yeah exactly thats exactly right
... Heh. Anyway, my dad was really well off then. We’d eat out in the LES like almost every other night. Of course, this was before he got married again, and it was mostly cheap-ass shit, but still, yo. Our apartment was also apparently real cheap or something, like
— rent stabilized?
Yeah, yeah, that’s what it was.
— yeah
It was real disgusting, though, like
— yr landlord was definitely just trynna get you out. y’know how much LES rent is now?
Yeah, I walked by again recently, and the shit’s going for four-K. Like yo—what spoiled NYU kid gonna pay for that? Anyway, if that’s what he was trying to do, he did a good fuckin’ job—we ditched that place the next year. Couldn’t cook in it, refrigerator was a big block of ice, everything so filthy a fucking LES cleaning lady was scared away from that place. When we left that place, there was two decade-old bourbon just encased in ice. I think my dad and his spouse shared it—in honor of the move, y’feel?
Anyway—my dad was real well off, so we met outside this shitty-ass overpriced burrito bar after like the second or third day and
— jorges?
Yeah, shit’s gone now. Good riddance.
— i liked jorges man
More power to you. Anyway, he was like—you know anyone?
— yr pops a fuckin bouncer bro
Heh. Anyway, he just asked if I knew anyone, and I was just like—yeah, Dan Rosario, Mike Mechanic, Nina Ramirez... Anna Utkin... Levi Hubrecht... Ezra Zaïd...
He was like—great, yo. Get to know these people a bit better—middle school don’t mean much academically and all, but you’ll really become you through other people sometime soon.
It was real convenient for me, since most of these people lived in either Stuy Town or Baruch Houses. Gave me two real centers of gravity through middle school, tugging on either side of the LES. A year later, we started drinking, smoking, everything...
— ...
drinking ‘n’... driving?
... Yeah, man, fuck you.
As the page burns and sweet ivory clouds ascend from both ends, one of the freshmen catches a glance at its contents.
The paper burns faster than any of those present were expecting, burning Zayd’s lip. He lets out a slight chuckle.
— Trynna smoke paper, yo. I’m the smartest little boy of 2014.
— ... Ezra Zaïd? Who’s that?
— ...
... My brother, yo.
on the way home these kids were on the whole subway routine like put down boom box grab pole kick y’in the face git money shekel shekel stay blunted aight? i knew the song they were playing but i had my own headphones on. wasnt listening to anything but kept em on anyway. song was a bit muffled through em but nice to hear anyway.

Here is Altan Zayd, 16 years old, real name Ezra Zaïd—he has forsaken his birth-name in protest of the circumstances of his birth and upbringing, which he still hasn’t quite gotten proper consolation for. He is wearing a military jacket with his last name on it, his born name, anyway—he just shakes his head whenever asked why. Right now, he is leaving school through the staircase in the back of the cafeteria, the entrance of which didn’t have a proper guard today, only Eddy. There would have been a guitar on his back at this moment if he hadn’t left home in a hurry, only to ditch school at this time. He is followed by two bassists and an egoist. One of the bassists does not even attend this school: again, Eddy’s fault, not the bassist’s. Lunch is now dismissed, and hordes of students leave the cafeteria through all openings: Altan and his three followers hurry up, just ineffectively enough to allow a few freshman to catch a glimpse of the group heading down the stairs.
— You go, Altan!
Acknowledgment is not given until the group reaches the first floor, averts the real security guards by way of the peripheral exit, and dashes around the corner.
— Yeah, I go. We all go. Let’s go get out of here.
A soft chuckle comes from the egoist, followed by piercing stares from the two bassists. The egoist is 15 years old, to turn 16 in six months. His name is Kenichi Takahata, a name that has done him far more harm than good—ever since kindergarten, it has been misread and mispronounced as thousands of other names, from Benny to Kenny to Bennecke, in response to which Takahata, Japanese in descent only, never fails to quite dishonorably squints his eyes, bow deeply, and let out a strong, exaggerated pronouncement of
— HAI!
which instantly dispels any confusion over either his name or personality. At this moment, under the bassists’ stares, Takahata feels his ego being battered down, so he coldly ripostes with
— Let’s not waste any time here.
the commanding yet faintly hesitant tone of which instantly dispels any confusion over whether or not Takahata acts any differently outside of school. Altan briefly shakes his head and nudges one of the bassists, his longtime friend Levi Hubrecht, age 16, in the shoulder. The two of them make a sharp turn into a deli, Levi calling out
— Aight, we’ll just be a second, yeah?
The other two follow anyway.
that band was fucking wack man
they listen to some wack ass music and wanna make their own. any fuckin white boy in the citys gonna do that. you know? list their shitty little ep on shitty little sites with shitty little concerts everywhere popping up them always in the listings. yo theyd be a lot better if they were actually influenced by what they say they are
and now that they got a new name the last good parts gone. sounds like a fucking cover band now they got the old name from me man shit the name wasnt even a good joke to begin with
Here is Altan Zayd again, with the same two bassists and one opportunist, a new follower, having left the deli somewhere between ten and twenty minutes ago, now a good five blocks from the school. They are sitting in what was once a vacant lot, now converted to a very small public park, no larger than the average lower Manhattan apartment. The signpost in front welcomes visitors to Ariadna Kozlowski Memorial Park, while Altan and his present company refer to it as Weed Park. The two visions are not mutually exclusive. The opportunist, age 15 as of last week, is carrying a skateboard with JULIUS LOPEZ, his name, spraypainted on the bottom, with a little skull and crossbones and a triple-X added for good measure. His mousy expression, darting eyes and slight hunch might provoke a tinge of pathos ten blocks down, but in this area, everybody knows exactly what school he belongs to and how to react. His teeth chatter slightly, prompting a bemused stare from Levi. He follows this unwarranted movement of the jaw with another, saying
— Ay, there was this freshman today and
He pauses, quickly looking to his left and right like a kindergartener crossing the street, realizing that his status as a freshman gives him no right to use the word as a diminutive label. He makes no attempt to retroactively correct this error.
— There was this freshman here today, and I was all like
He pauses yet again.
— I was all like, yo, I left my dick at home today... And he believed it and all, y’know? He was like—okay.
All those present pause, as if to mock Julius’ mannerisms, before bursting into collective laughter.
— Dude, that does not mean that he believed it.
— This kid funny, yo. “I left my dick at home today...” Yo, this kid funny.
— I mean, I got six dicks in jars in my closet here, I don’t carry ‘em around, but I still got that special one, y’know, that one lucky dick that I keep with me at all times, y’feel?
— Shut up.
— Ayy, calm down.
Julius breathes an incredibly loud sigh of relief which is mistaken for a verbal tick, prompting further laughter.
When some kids decide to leave school early, it’s not Ms. Sabina’s fault: students aren’t exactly expected to do well, anyway. The school’s most cherished alumni were all dropouts and delinquents in their days. Perhaps there are a few alumni out there who, in their times, attended school every day, got straight A’s, graduated, and went on to do fairly well in a conventional field, but they certainly keep quiet about it if they exist at all. The purpose of this school is to make it easy to skip class and do whatever one pleases—this, not any collection of angsty, uninspired paintings in the entrance, is what makes it an art school. When a musically inclined group is badgered for cutting school today, who’s to say that they won’t be the pride of the school tomorrow? It’s happened before. In any case, it’s far more likely to happen for the delinquents than for the few cherished straight-A children: if they think they’re going from Strauss School for the Arts to Harvard, they’re in for a nasty surprise. Going after the “losers” just isn’t worth the work here, and might even do more harm than good.
Of course, this philosophy can only go so far. Ms. Sabina will turn a blind eye to bored kids cutting classes, even her own, but she won’t have her intelligence or competence insulted. Her attitude towards her students is that of salutary neglect, but at the end of the day, she does have job to do. So when she recognizes two of her students and some weirdo darting out of a deli during fifth period, she’ll do all parties involved a favor and forget about it. But when a self-righteous little creep from her ninth period class tries to get away by approaching her, making small talk, and somehow feigning innocence, she’ll make it known that she’s no idiot and shoot a quick jab at the boy’s slightly over-inflated self-image before dragging him back to school. He deserves what’s coming to him.
— Altan Zayd—Ezra on your records—approached me and told me that he and his friends were leaving the school, telling me to come along... I felt bad about it, sure... I didn’t know if I really wanted to go through with it, actually, but by then we were already down the stairs... I know that’s no excuse, and I am prepared to face the consequences... Rest assured that it won’t happen again.
I told them what they needed to hear, really—definitely not more. They fucked me over anyway, no big speech or such, just
— We expected more from you.
— Ayy, there a tourist in weed park!
— Came all the way just to light up!
— Aye! Ayyy! Yo! Y’enjoying the sights!
— Heh... but is he the... tour-est tourist?
— Shut up, shut up... Aye! Y’trynna cop? Aye!
— Hey! Are you my mother?
— ... He gone, man, he gone... PfffakkhHHHaha ha ha HA... hnghhh... Nice fucking jacket, yo! You trynna bring that style to the Big Fckkn’ Apple?
— Straight outta Hartford... He straight outta Hartford... pfffftthhHHahhahhaAhhaaa... Hartford Club! That shit rich!
— Yo, I almost want that jacket. Hartford Club!
— Arson Club?
— ...
— ...
... Yeah, yo, Arson Club.
Arson Club played their first show on 14 July 2013.
