I’ve been writing this thing about how I was goth in high school, and it got me all churned up to find some of the CDs I had back then. Luckily, I had the sense to keep the ones that were so insane that no one would believe me if I didn’t still have them.
For example, Ultraviolence.
This slogan just squeaked by “Turn ‘date rape’ into ‘having sex with you just so she can leave sooner’”. Way to go Dial. Go maybe yourself.

As some of you know, I’m kinda fascinated with the benefits of emotional problems, from small things like choosing the wrong romantic partners over and over to big things, like schizophrenia. These benefits are real (if not overshadowed by their huge costs), because not only have some of the greatest works of art been created by people in the throes of mania or depression, but evolutionarily, mental illness has continued to survive natural selection. Why?
Why would it ever be helpful to have hallucinations, or not sleep, or feel so sad that you cannot work?
Welp, people are working on that right now.
Hi all! This is a random little mental health tip, but since I’m actively using it today, I thought I’d pass it along. It may or may not be helpful to you. I have to use an inhaler very very rarely, and I always always forget how much it makes my heart race, which in turn stresses me out, which makes my heart race more, etc. So to help calm myself, I am using an old trick I actually learned from a client who had panic attacks all the time. He was always on the lookout for things that would occupy his mind without racheting up his stress level.

Do you have a dog, a massive sense of entitlement, and cash to burn?
Well, Les Poochs is for you! They sell a wide variety of upscale dog products like brushes, carriers, organic treats, and clothes. Now you could make the argument that these are mostly things that are necessary for a dog, and if you did, I would direct you to the “fragrances” section of their website.
That’s right, they sell perfume for dogs.
And before you’re like “Oh Emily/Gynomite, it’s so hack to make fun of boutique animal products”, let me clarify: I’m talking about $3000 perfume for dogs.
