When will our fucking hearts cease to riot?

Music, feminism & stuff.

Do you know this dog? If so send me an email (kreed@vcu.edu)! She is freshly bathed and exhausted from running around with my dogs. She has a collar but not tags. She is ridiculously friendly.

I’m excited for this series because as an (compassionate?) HR person in higher ed, I find the structure of adjunct appointments really troublesome. Also, as a person currently pursuing a graduate degree, a future for myself in higher ed looks increasingly more rare. I don’t want to teach but maybe i would run a program or something. Lately I’ve been thinking that I’m only in higher ed so I can get a low-cost degree and I should probably go somewhere else when I’m done.

Ugh so I just heard that a faculty member I know once said to a colleague, “Don’t forget to put your credentials on your business card or people will think you’re a staff member.”

This is so so wrong.


1. Staff can have advanced degrees.

2. There are plenty of faculty members who do not have advanced degrees. Having a master’s is not even a qualification to be classified as faculty.

3. Fuck you.

I don’t think I fit into his Indie world
Guided By Voices and Velocity Girl
Eric’s Trip and Rocket Ship, Rancid and Rocket from The Crypt
Bikini Kill and Built to Spill, it’s plain to see that I don’t fit
He says my songs are too deep and gloomy
He wishes that I could be more like Jenny Toomey
Just give me my Joni my Nick, Neil, and Bob
You can keep your Tsunami, your Slant 6 and Smog

What’s the story he says Butterglory
I say what’s the news he says the Silver Jews
His Heavenly hang-up is getting me down
And it’s making me wonder why he’s hanging around

Cause I don’t fit into his indie scene
Huggy Bear and Helium and Half-Japanese
Sebadoh and Sentridoh and Superchunk and I don’t know
Doug and Lou and Calvin too and Kim and Kim and Kim and Kim
Yeah I’m stuck in the past and he’s stuck on his four-track
But I can’t get through to his one-track mind
I push play and record and a major chord
Maybe I’ll win his heart this time

Ohhhh we listened to this all the time in college even though it was a little old then. I asked Mary Lou to play it when she played to twenty people at VCU in 1998-ish. She played “His ND World” instead which was about alt-country and No Depression. SO GOOD.
