A WOMAN JUST WALKED BY MY HOUSE AND SHE’S WALKING A CAT IN A STROLLER
i want to ask my teacher about the “kkk in the basement of the secret squirrel” thing because he’s been living here for a billion years/doing research on a variety of topics that would give him knowledge of this but also i don’t know how to frame the reference of “the secret squirrel” to an old dude
EDIT blake has info about at least part of this not being true
wow today in sociology of the south we learned some crazy shit about kkk activity in athens LIKE apparently the second story (? there is a second story?) of the grit/go bar building used to be a klan headquarters, also the kkk demonstrated against allowing black people to eat at the varsity, in athens in the time since my teacher’s been at athens
i think this is important because i have heard once that the secret squirrel had a stage in it when it was bought because there were kkk rallies there and i totally believe this but other people have found it hard to believe, like, the kkk was a huge thing in the south?? my teacher had numerous interactions with the kkk in athens, and he’s like, not that old?
here’s an article i found on it but i only skimmed it cause i have class in five minutes
I feel so doneeeeeee with Athens right now.
i’ve actually been feeling like this a lot recently which surprised me cause a couple weeks ago i was applying for a full time job here but sometimes it’s like, you wanna gtfo
HEY fyi if you are in athens (ga) and would like to ask me anonymously about the services you can get at the sexual assault center i worked at last summer, you can message me any time!
aww memories of the time local punk dude referred to me as a “cowardly egotistical megalomaniac” for suggesting some aspect of an event of his was messed up
I learned only recently that this was filmed in Athens, and while I was watching it I realized a lot of the places are literally right down the street from my house. You can even see the train in the background, and there’s a short cut you can take between the brightly colored houses that leads to where I live. And if you’re familiar with Athens bands then there’s some obvious cameos, but I’m more interested in the settings. I wish I recognized some of the other places.
i knew for a long time this was filmed in athens but it’s only now that i can recognize more of the places in it.
ok, you know what, fine.
huge tw for rape and rapist defense rhetoric here. I’m putting it behind a cut for length.
wow this is so fucked up, like way more fucked up than even the first response. RVIVR is playing in athens tonight and you shouldn’t go see them.
lol every once in awhile i go through my tumblr posts and delete things/make things private because this blog has existed during unflattering periods of my life. anyway here is a semi-edited (i only took out a few words/ranty sentences) version of That Thing that happened at go bar at dance back the night a few years ago:
dance back the night is mysteriously always the worst. i wrote something about my shitty experiences a couple years back (a different dance back the night than this one) it involved one of the performers talking about what a bitch his ex-girlfriend was.
i feel kind of like i have a responsibility to get involved with dance back the night as a women’s studies student who knows a lot of people in bands but i just already have such bad associations with it and i feel like other people do too. that’s a super cop-out reason.
