HARD ASSES FART-SPEAK WITH THEIR MOUTHS

I’ve always struggled with authorities of any kind: parents, teachers, bullies, angry nerds, preachers, police officers, mall cops, parking meter Nazis, government officials, Presidents, editors in chief, and faculty supervisors—except for Bryan Smith and Teague Bohlen.
Music has a history with politics and rebelliousness since the 20th century, especially since the 60s. Every time people start talking about politics again, my inner voice of anti-conformity starts to creep out of my mind and bites back.
Fuck authority, they’re all fucking power hungry fuck faces. Some people say, “I’m voting for Mitt Romney, he’s our best choice for the economy.” Romney is the antichrist, and he pours 10W30 on his cheerios every morning. “Obama is the lesser of two evils.” Yeah, but he’s still a politician, and never trust a person that smiles too much. I’m voting for a third party, quite possibly Bugs Bunny or Han Solo.
I’ve been listening to a lot of bands like Rage Against the Machine, System Of A Down, Sex Pistols, and Dead Kennedys. “Killing In The Name” by RATM really gets me riled up when Zack de la Rocha repeats, “Fuck you, I won’t do what you tell me/Fuck you, I won’t do what you tell me.”
I’ve also started having random fits of rants about authority while my friends blow their cigarette smoke out of the sides of their mouths and roll their eyes. But they know I need to get it out, so they just wish I’d shut the hell up. What do Presidents do anyway? All they do is blab their farty mouths off in front of cameras and wear suits and ties that pinch off oxygen to their brains.
Leading up to Nov. 6th always conflicts with my ever-changing personality that fights with itself. Now I’ve found myself in a place of authority as a music editor. I never thought in a million years I’d end up in a position like this. Being a delivery driver most of my working life, I’ve always gone out of my way not to work in a position of authority. This job has changed my view on authority.
Some people just end up doing an authoritative job because they got caught up in what they really care about. But some people in positions of authority are still fucking power hungry fuck faces. You just got to figure out who sucks, which doesn’t take that long.
