I Put Out a New Album (A Record, by Jay Satellite)

satellitehigh:

so i am not doing the “satellite high” thing these days but i do miss making rap music so please enjoy the debut record by yours truly, jay satellite. it’s a lot more experimental and darker than the satellite high stuff, and substantially less goofy, but hopefully you will like it anyway.

almost every track on here is constructed from live instruments that i played in my living room and pieced together into beats later on. there is lots of droney noise guitar and hand percussion and other weird things that you won’t normally hear on a rap record.

if you enjoy this, please share with your friends and support independent music. this is currently my only job and i need all the help i can get at the moment.

I just realized that this is the first time since…like, high school that I’ve been fandom free.

I am a member of no fandom.

I like things. There’s lots of things I like. I like them and read and watch and listen to them and talk about them. Because I like them. Because I like them.

I thought for the longest time I couldn’t do without fandom because I’d be lonely. Because I’d have nobody to share anything with. Because I wouldn’t have a community. But a community that’s more like a perpetual frat hazing, where you’re constantly subjected to arbitrary whims of self-appointed credentials, isn’t really a community. People still have every conventional way of contacting me to share opinions and reactions and conversations, and if they choose not to that’s totally okay! I don’t need the note counts on my personal opinions to prove that I’m worth talking to.

I have nothing to prove. Nothing I feel the need to improve. I don’t need to bait people with art or fic or meta, or waste precious energy on righteous anger over the perceived inter-fandom slight or creator-failure of the day. And all the pecking orders and pissing contests and passive-aggression and one-upsmanship and ridiculous myopic self-absorbed drama is happening totally outside of my backyard. And I can rubberneck if I feel like it. Or I can just keep on driving by.

I can enjoy, and be entertained, without worrying about if doing it in a big enough, visible enough way. I can write dumb stories and draw questionable art because I *want* to, not because I need a single other person or an arbitrary self-appointed governance to pass quality judgment. I can talk about the crap I like, and emote and reblog and wallow and rage because it’s what I think, not because I need any other person to agree or care.

I am fandom free.

And it feels kind of awesome.

The Rumblr’s in-house astrologer, Madame Clairevoyant, presents her latest dispatch from the stars:
Aries: This is going to be a week made of small moments, it’s going to be a week for staying connected with the people in your world, it’s going to be a week for listening to what people tell you and listening to the quiet in between their words. It’s a week for enjoying other people’s company. It’s a week for being a little careful and a little kind with strangers in the grocery store, on the street, on the bus. Listen to the radio, listen to the night. Just being here can be enough.
 Taurus: This week you’ll be able to feel yourself changing, maybe, getting wiser and getting weirder. You’re growing every second, even when you’re bored at your job, even when you’re stuck in traffic, even when you’re asleep. You don’t need to rush and you don’t need to worry. You’re doing so much work all the time, so try to go a little easy on yourself sometimes. Give yourself time to feel quiet and time to feel slow and time just to sit outside your house and feel the night on your skin.
Gemini: This week, you aren’t going to be able to make everyone happy, and you aren’t going to be able make everyone love you just how you want, and you aren’t going to be able to sail through this week all neutral and untouched. You aren’t going to make everyone happy this week that’s ok. That’s where the magic is, that’s where you can find yourself, that’s where you can find the truths you really need. You can stop watching everyone watch you. You can stop worrying so much. You can live the way you need to.
Cancer: This week you can watch the sky change color, and you can watch the days slowly start to get colder, and you might get a little scared of the long nights ahead. It’s a good week to make sure you have the things you’re going to need. It’s a good week to clean your bathroom, clean your fridge, clean your room, do all your laundry. It’s a good week to hang pictures on your walls. It’s a good week for taking care of the space you live in, a good week for making a home.
Leo: It might feel like the world is shifting under your feet and it might feel like your bones are shifting inside your own body, this week. It’s not always easy, but try not to hold on to everything so tight. It’s okay to let the world shift and breathe. It’s okay to let your friends live in ways that you don’t understand and it’s okay to let the air move in ways you don’t understand. Let your thoughts get away from you sometimes; let them carry you to bright weird places.
Virgo: This is a week for making order of all the strange parts of your life, it’s a week for making meaning, it’s a week for sorting and naming and drawing maps. It’s a week for navigating the weird territory of your dreams and the weird landscapes of your desires. Try to keep moving and try to keep your eyes open. Even if you don’t know what you’re doing, you can find what you need to guide you. Even if you don’t know what you want, you can stay honest, you can stay good, you can keep trying.
Libra: This is a week for letting your blood flow hot in your veins, it’s a week for letting your dreams overflow right out of your heart. It’s a week for getting worked up over how big the world is, how full, how exciting. There are so many bright clear days coming your way and it’s okay, this week, to get happy about it, to get so hopeful it’s a little embarrassing. Listen to Beyoncé and let this energy carry you through the week. Let this energy make you believe in everything good.
Scorpio: This week, if you need to, if you’re ready, you’ll be able to make things right, you’ll be able to make amends, you’ll be able to fix the things that have been wrong and the things that have been bothering you. It can be a week for apologies or a week for forgiveness, it can be a week for laying your heart bare, it can be a week for restoring the balance inside of you. Try to be brave, try to be honest and true to the people you care about, try to be kind to yourself.
Sagittarius: When your days start to move faster than you can even keep up with, try to take a break if you can. Try to stop moving for a second and just look around you. Give yourself time to check in with yourself, with the people you care about, with the place you live in. Give yourself time to get your bearings, give yourself time to catch your balance, give yourself time to breathe. It’s a week for remembering where you are, it’s a week for making adjustments to your path, it’s a week for finding north again.
Capricorn: Even when everything seems most strange, even your own words, even your own heart, even your own face, try not to beat yourself up so much. Even when all you can see is the empty space, even when all you can think of is the work left to do, try not to be so hard on yourself. You’re doing okay, you’re trying so hard, you’re doing so much better than you even know. Let your friends love you however you can. Let yourself live your funny strange life in this funny strange world.
Aquarius: This week, you can focus on the way the sun shines through your windows, or the way your hair looks when you first wake up, or the little green leaves on the plants in your windowsill. This week will be full of small gifts, full of these gentle reminders that you deserve every good thing in the world, every good thing there is. You don’t have to doubt your own thoughts, you don’t have to worry, just let the world around you fill up with possibilities. You can do anything you want. You deserve all the happiness there is.
Pisces: This is a week for trusting your skin and your guts, it’s a week for trusting the borders of your self, it’s a week for trusting the thing you know to be true. You don’t have to believe anything cruel and you don’t have to believe anything that rings heavy and false. You don’t have to be open to anyone who doesn’t care about you; you don’t have to be open to anyone who doesn’t want to see you grow into your best and happiest and most generous self.

Brock Lesnar is such a sweaty man, it looks like getting a hold of him would be like trying to hang onto a water weenie.

Look at how matte Cena is in contrast. It’s like he telepathically wills his own sweat to come out Lesnar’s pores.
