humdrum news vol .012
because the world is trash
Hi there… the world sucks, people suck, and we’re all just insane at this point… You’ve probably been inundated with news on this already, but I needed some place to vent, so feel free to skip…
I’m hard at work on the first issue of my upcoming zine foofaraw, but the world sucks and to attempt to cope with it I made a little design. The fact that this is the normal in our world is devastating to me. And it most certainly is the normal. It’s not abnormal, and not even the new normal.
The best part of it all (or worst, depending on how you look at it) is that the people who are okay with this kind of shit continuing so they can have their AR-15s are the same people who want to control a woman’s body because they want to safeguard a sperm. Kids are dead and, once again, nothing will change because Bob (sorry to all the real Bob’s that are good people) wants to shoot a target on the weekends and defend himself from god knows what. And in a state where basically anyone who wants a gun can have one, there was no Bob to save the day because the whole “the only thing that beats a bad guy with a gun is a good guy with a gun” is complete bullshit.
And now kids are dead.
…there’s some links at the bottom to keep this whole “news” thing going, but honestly, I don’t really have the stomach to read them myself right now.
Well… I guess I’ll mix in the occasional news post in between monthly foofaraw’s…
