• Cobain later noted that the town, and more specifically the school made him feel “like a fart”, and that it “made a person want to eat crappy hamburgers and drink chocolate milk the rest of their lives.”
• This was one of Nirvana’s last live performances before being launched into space; the first of many visitors, staff, faculty, and students of Apollo to do so.
Apollo received its name from the NASAApollo space program. In front of the school there is a space capsule from NASA that was used by frogmen to train, usually for hooking up the capsule to a helicopter after splashdown.
Space Capsule Events
1. On January 13, 1971 this space capsule was donated by NASA frogmen. The frogmen were greeted in the early morning hours by the Apollo frogmen, whom, together with the Veterans Hospital (V.A.) frogmen from across the street, are responsible for keeping the area clear of flymen. NASA frogmen and Apollo/V.A. accepted the NASA space pod at 4:09AM, none of them knowing the terror it contained.
2. On December 4, 2003 this space capsule was found to be the home of Aegaeon the Hecatoncheires (hundred handed), an until-then-believed mythical Greek beast. The beast was frozen in ice and shrunken down to handheld size after a two day battle with the Wichery Head In Time Encapsulated team, otherwise known as the local 7.9stc Wichery group.
“You know what this summer was? This summer was ISIS, beheadings, missing airplanes, airplanes shot down, religious minorities being persecuted, black Americans being persecuted, militarized police, Iggy Azalea having the “song of the summer,” Robin Williams hanging himself, and finding out Hello Kitty isn’t even a fucking cat.
2014 was the summer of existentialism, and it’s the kind of summer and cultural climate during which we should all discuss the matter of dying sad, scared, confused, and alone more often.”—WE ARE YOUR FEK (via kateoplis)
you’re not a bad person if there are actual reasons why looking at ferguson stuff makes you terribly anxious or paranoid and im not going to fault you if you can’t. but, if you are humanly able, please reblog the posts on how to help, how to avoid tear gas, how to help pay for legal fees, the vigils, etc., and please, if you have the hd space, download and archive every video/picture of this you can, they are being taken off of social media.
“I wouldn’t say I threw you under the bus. You’ve been walking blindly down the middle of a busy street, getting repeatedly slammed by bus after bus, and I’m on the side of the road shouting at you, “hey, those things that keep hitting you are busses! If you want to stop getting hit by busses you need to do something about that!” And instead of acknowledging that you need help, you keep shouting back, “don’t tell me what to do!””—Just one of those comebacks that didn’t occur to me until long after the moment had passed. But I liked it enough I wanted to share without context.
