Spazzkid - Truly (feat. Sarah Bonito) OFFICIAL MUSIC VIDEO

Working on this song with Sarah Bonito was a very special experience for me. When we started brainstorming the music video, I wanted to share the fun, care-free feeling that the song gives out. My good friend Czar Campos, who also directed the video for “40 Winks” off of Desire, traveled to the streets of Shibuya and Harajuku in Tokyo to shoot with the lovely Ayumi Yokoyama. The culture in Tokyo is a huge inspiration for me and the animations were inspired by “Purikura” or the photobooths that pepper the city. Following Ayumi through her day “Truly" makes me swoon and I hope you enjoy it as much as I have enjoyed the process of it’s existence.

It was a messy and foggy morning when Steven Sillyperson logged onto 4chan.org and saw the picture of a dog photoshopped inside the foreskin of a human penis. Steven, who prefers gender neutral pronouns, saved the picture in their Dropbox folder titled reaction pics, and after spending twenty minutes reading a post about Elliot Rodgers, they started a Tinychat room and linked to it in their thread on /b/.

The sky felt gender neutral to Cher Littlebit while she browsed an area code hook up thread on /soc/. She ctrl+F’d “415” but didn’t receive any results. Simba, the orange ragamuffin, knocked over a vase before running out of her bedroom and hiding under a couch. Cher followed him out the room and laid down at eye level with him where they stared at one another. “What’s the matter with you?” she said but Simba had trouble understanding her because he mainly communicates through body language.

Steven smoked salvia alone in their room to an audience of twenty peers, and when they began to feel constrictions tense through their body, they came to the same, reoccurring thought, “I can not imagine anyone consenting to this.” In the middle of the terribly physical and violent yanking of Steven’s identity, they felt something familiar.

But does it really matter if things feel familiar to Steven,and I mean does this feel similar to you, this familiar feeling thing I mean?Just FYI, I don’t see any correlation to how Steven perceives themself to how someone like, for example, me can perceive themself. It’s hard for me to find the connections between the things happening around me, but we make connections with the people in our communities all the time anyway, and they affect the way we think about the things and people around us, just in case you weren’t paying attention this is what is currently happening.

Paul Nickleback, who had recently published Cher in his serialized magazine focused on culture and gender after their initial meeting at a book launch last month in San Mateo, who had just sent Cher one of many increasingly concerning text messages requesting nude photos, hadn’t left his home in a week following his termination from his job, and watched Steven on tinychat but lost interest halfway through, in the same familiar way he had lost interest in himself whenever long ago, it doesn’t really matter.

Eli recently began his job at NewHive.com and is otherkin. His Facebook news feed displays an article that matches his interests. Millions of dollars go towards an algorithm that ensures you only see the articles that are most relevant towards you. Humans are increasingly finding new ways to control and change the environment around them. Eli, on the other hand, identifies as a cat.

What ended up being two weeks with Herman Melville has become a blur to me, even though I’m writing this only a week after. We had a routine of waking up anywhere from one to three in the afternoon, getting breakfast, usually at some place “just around the corner,” a phrase Herman Melville used to describe any restaurant, bodega, or market within five-to-six blocks. He called me pet names. I have never gotten used to pet names. “My sweet,” “my little corgi,” and “my Philip Seymour Hoffman.” — Hannah Van Arsdale

selected tweets from: ”back by popular demand’, me aggressively livetweeting a church service ‪#‎churchlivetweet‬’

im standing outside avoiding ppl

walked anxiously past a large gaggle of women aggressively smiling, hugging ppl, painfully attempted smiling back

1 of the women turned suddenly & angrily demanded a child ~10% her age hand her her bible

brought in a cup of coffee as what now seems like a sort of defense against being touched

choir singing a song that just goes ‘hallelujah ur worthy to be praised’ on what seems like an nvrending loop

minister in suit walked up to me & aggressively shook my hand, said ‘how are u stephen’, stared me in the eyes a long time

im as far back as i cld possibly be & still be considered ‘participating’

1 of the ppl in the choir is extremely close to a microphone & incapable of harmonizing, it seems

cant believe ive nvr had sex in this building

this service is coinciding w a multiple day ‘womens conference’, i think, feel terrified what the sermon will be abt

a prsn named vanessa williams who isnt vanessa williams is singing a song that has the words ‘joy comes w the son’ in it

theres a large wasp in this room

told my dad theres a wasp, he kissed me on the cheek & said ‘ok, u can protect everyone’ lol

feels like the ‘joy comes w the son’ song has been going on for years

i dont think my phone batterys going to survive this livetweet

ppl keep making sex-noise-like ‘mm’ sounds & saying ‘thank u’ at bizarre-seeming intervals

my godmother is preaching

the pastor said something that seemed vaguely gender-bend-y then tried to undo it awkwardly

oh wait godmom is just introducing my cousin whos actually the 1 preaching

havent seen my cousin in ~4yrs, now feel terrified ill have to hang out w her after this

cousin shouted out every pastor at the church including my dad before beginning to preach, seemed insane

doesnt seem like shes started preaching shes just talking to the audience repeating ‘women who win & men who are mighty’

kicking into ‘idgaf anymore mode’

might start watching star trek on netflix, no one wld even notice

preacher telling an anecdote abt an australian preacher w no arms who rolls around on stage while preaching

trying to figure out the wifi password

jesus, yea my cousin died, v fucked up way to find out imo

wifi password situation seems bleak

at this point preacher is just talking abt having cancer, this is getting way too real

this is a live action horror movie

i dont understand how turning these anecdotes into bible rhetoric / convos w jesus changes anything

preacher said the word ‘saved’ & a lot of ppl whooped & hollered, idgi

preacher says rly fucked up things followed by something like ‘but my help cometh from the lord’ loudly & ppl say ‘yasss’

preacher says the way she recovered from heart failure was by ‘walking by faith not by sight’, wtf does that mean ?

preachers doing an armor metaphor, said ‘the helmet of faith’

realizing bc of low mic the ppl in this part of the church are being uncharacteristically quiet, feel grateful

bro sitting in front of me keeps looking back at me w a face like ‘is she forreal ?’ & ‘wtf is she talkin abt ?’

this is 1 of the most fucked up days of my life

not sure what shes talking abt anymore but preacher said ‘heroin’ & ‘crack’ which got my attn

preacher finally started preaching, said ‘1) uve got to break the chains of choice’, have no idea what shes talking abt

preacher started telling the story of esther, seemingly unrelated to anything else

preacher keeps saying ‘im a diamond’

wasp got caught in a spiderweb, sources reveal
