On a scale of one to completely inappropriate work relationship, how weird is it that I am going to my general manager’s parents’ house to watch the Flyers-Rangers game tonight?
I am so fucking close to graduating college and I have never felt more wonderful and terrified in my entire life, and I don’t think I’ll ever have this combination of excitement and apprehension ever again.
My goal in life is to be a hockey mom.
If getting an email from a college student applying for a job time stamped Saturday, 8:30pm doesn’t scream I’m responsible, I don’t know what does.
When it comes to everything I do in public, I have never admitted this to anyone before and it’s kind of embarrassing, but I’m going to tell you, when it comes to Twitter or my blog or doing an interview like this, the one filter I have is if Chris Hannah from Propagandhi were to read this, would he think I’m a total fucking asshole? Because he’s just somebody who’s very funny, very frank and outspoken.
A lot of his beliefs are way more hard line than anything I subscribe to, but I find his general public persona to be pretty right on. Propagandhi is my favorite band. I make no secret of that. I think the way he conducts himself, does the liner notes, represents the band, represents himself and his politics are super right on.
When I write something, I don’t think there’s anything terribly offensive about an intellectual exercise in figuring out if it’s grosser to suck a human penis that’s attached to a dog or a dog penis that’s attached to a human. But there’s certain points where I think if this is something with hard line sort of beliefs, would I think it could be construed as sexist, or jingoistic or offensive to people who are animal rights activists?
Even though PC grandstanding is very irritating to me, the heart of all that stuff is in the right place as well. I think you should just be nice and respectful to everyone. I try to think of things along those lines especially because somebody like Chris, who has a real sense of humor, is a nice barometer for my brain like, “This is in the right ballpark. That idea, maybe you should sit on a few days and see if you still think it’s funny.
