“Don’t be deceived when they tell you things are better now. Even if there’s no poverty to be seen because the poverty’s been hidden. Even if you ever got more wages and could afford to buy more of these new and useless goods which industries foist on you and even if it seems to you that you never had so much, that is only the slogan of those who still have much more than you. Don’t be taken in when they paternally pat you on the shoulder and say that there’s no inequality worth speaking of and no more reason to fight because if you believe them they will be completely in charge in their marble homes and granite banks from which they rob the people of the world under the pretence of bringing them culture. Watch out, for as soon as it pleases them they’ll send you out to protect their gold in wars whose weapons, rapidly developed by servile scientists, will become more and more deadly until they can with a flick of the finger tear a million of you to pieces.”—Jean-Paul Marat (1743-1793), physician, political scientist, journalist and one of the more radical leaders of the French Revolution.

Hi! So, I'm one of Maggie Davidson's followers, and I just have to let you know that my best (female) friend is also named Devin and she and I have a running commentary on how neither of us like wearing pants. I swear I have actually called her "mcdevinpants" before, or something highly similar. I did a double-take when I saw your URL, knowing she didn't have tumblr! The coincidence it staggering to me.
I begin to suspect a relationship between people who are named Devin and the wearing (or not wearing) of pants.
Tell your best friend I think her name is awesome. Not enough people spell it right.
Man thank you so much for these really great questions. Now if I could only start producing the material you'd feel like they were worth something xD
Fleshing out a universe is always worth it. I grant you, I would definitely like to see it take shape, but I’m reading Aaron Diaz on my twitter feed right now saying that you’ve got to feel it. If you force it it shows. I’ve been itching for a new universe, but I’ve got nothing right now.
How many times a day do you fap and on what basis does that number fluctuate?
Thank you, Rei, for that eloquent question. Prrrrrobably about once a day, sometimes twice. It all depends on how I’m feeling on a given day, and what I may encounter on said day to put me in the mood. It also depends on how effective the first time is. That’s important.
Good question, ask another! Or, y’know, use the link that automatically comes at the bottom of answer posts. :)
Every now and then Starbucks stumbles across something fantastic, and I’ve been pretty good about catching it. It’s not all that surprising, really, considering I hear the playlist every single day, over and over again. But still, when something really catches my ear, I’m a bit shocked. It’s gotten to the point that if something catches my ear, I literally cock my head and listen for a bit. It’s a lot easier when this happens in the early morning, before we open up for customers, and I was lucky enough to catch this one multiple mornings. The song is called Boolavogue, and it’s by The High Kings. It’s not hard for me to pick out an Irish band, I’m attuned to pretty much everything about Gaelic music, and I wanted to know what it was badly enough to pull out my phone (subtly) while I was on the floor and fire up Shazam, which I consider one of the most brilliant apps every devised. I wrote down the song, album, and band names, and a few days later, found myself on my half with the opportunity to check them out on iTunes. I didn’t even need the whole extended preview times to fall in love with multiple songs, and I’ve been listening to the album semi-obsessively since yesterday, which is my pattern. I’m a very happy camper.
It would’ve been a lot sooner if the tumblr app on my phone let you do…anything, really. I have to go into safari just to ask somebody something. The app is actually pretty lame. It lets me see my dashboard and post, and that’s it.

Well, I got my heel pierced by a really long splinter once at my cousin’s house playing basketball with her on her back porch. The going in didn’t hurt, and having it in just felt weird, but the taking out, oh that hurt like hell.
Also, you totally don’t even have to. I mean, it certainly wouldn’t hurt, but you tend to have that effect on me on your own as you are.
I am so tired right now I may be approximately intoxicated.
Also, I have to be up in three and a half hours to go to work. And Terry Collins threw the damn game away. YOU DON’T PUT IN A .053 HITTER FOR A .222 HITTER WITH TWO OUTS, THE BASES LOADED, AND A TIE GAME IN THE BOTTOM OF THE NINTH. I don’t care if the .053 hitter has a 20-for-20 history against the pitcher on the mound, YOU DON’T DO IT. Okay, I’m done now.
1) Have you ever had any part of your body pierced?
2) Do you think Lady Gaga has finally lost her shit?
3) What kind of car would you like to drive if money was not an issue?
4) Are you, or have you ever been, at Cylon? It's okay, you can tell me.
5) If I showed up out of the blue dressed as River Song, what would your reaction be?
1) Not intentionally.
2) I don’t think she’s had it to lose for years.
3) A VW Bus that got decent gas mileage (I take advantage of the money not being an issue in order to design one that would actually have decent mileage)
4) Psh, please, if I was a cylon, I’d be having so much fun. I would not be undercover. Screw killing the humans.
5) You wouldn’t be for long. Yowza, what a combination, you and River Song.
I fell asleep yesterday afternoon and missed everything.
I slept straight through to this morning. I missed the Yankees-Red Sox game (which I’m retroactively glad about, given the result), but I also missed the Doctor Who episode I was looking forward to most. *headdesk*
I bet you have an answer for this...: If you could have any animal as a pet, aside from what most people would consider reasonable, without limit of money, habitat, or predatory instinct, what would you have?
Absolutely a tiger. I’d have an entire habitat for him/her, and visit every day, and have a consultant from the Bronx Zoo come to make sure s/he was happy (If we’re gonna remove the money limit, we might as well do the thing right, yes?).
joneko answered: Depends. Pornbot? Religious group? Yes. Otherwise? Link me, I’m curious as hell.
It’s hellocute. I don’t have anything against them per se, but I don’t really feel a need to have them show up in my feed, and I feel no pull of the tumblr “I follow you so you need to follow me back” politics.
eight-for-you-honey answered: Is it a Jefferson Starship?
I have absolutely no idea what you’re talking about. Is that a Supernatural reference?
A certain account has now followed me three times. I won't mention it, because I don't want to give it the advertising. I want to say it's probably because they want me to follow them back. Does that sound about right?
