"Calling someone a perfect angel is bullshit, no ones a perfect angel. People are flawed, imperfect beings that need to be loved for who they really are. Angel, if they’re really an angel then your love dosent mean anything, everybody loves angels. A real compliment isn’t angel, a real compliment is loving somebody even though you see them. Fuck “I love you because you’re perfect” how about “I love you even though I know you had a panic attack at macaroni grill for ordering the wrong entree”."

Here is the story of The Swellers. Thank you for everything.

This isn’t Behind The Music, this is the real life music industry. Share our story and we’ll say goodbye with you this fall.

The Turkish company Pugedon has recently introduced a vending machine that’s an innovative way to help both the environment and our furry friends. It releases food for the city’s stray dogs and cats every time a plastic bottle is deposited, and it allows people to empty their water bottles for the animals as well.

This wonderful service operates at no charge to the city because the recycled plastic pays for the cost of food. So, with a little financial investment, the simple machines do a lot of good. They provide a steady source of sustenance to the animals, many of which rely on caring residents to regularly feed them. It also encourages people to make a habit of recycling and help conserve our environment for future generations.

Hardwick: I’m pretty sure you don’t know me that well

Maron: I’m pretty sure you’re too good looking to be a nerd.

Yes, a very good morning!

mercurialkiss said: Has anyone ever referred to you as a "tortured genius"? What's your stance on the term? Do you believe that one must have a mental illness in order to create truly deep and worthwhile music/writing/art? Just something I've been pondering myself lately

justincourtneypierre:

I don’t think so, but then again I’ve never cared to ask, nor would I pay any attention to it if they do. I think having any sort of affliction (be it mental or otherwise) and being able to be creative either through that, because of that, or in order to deal with that, is a great and positive thing.

Sadly, I think it is insinuated that you are thought of as less than if there is something about you that isn’t “normal” or doesn’t function in the “normal” way. This is a giant bummer and I call shenanigans on that. I don’t know if there is anything wrong with me now and I stopped caring to find out what it might have been years ago. I choose to define what I may or may not have as, “Idiosyncrasies.” This allows me to move on and simply exist.

I am no expert. But I can tell you this: It took me 20+ years to deal with my shit and it wasn’t until I let go and stopped trying to define things that things started getting really good. I may or may not be bipolar, have crippling panic attacks, and exhausting OCD. I may or may not be an alcoholic. I made a decision to turn my life around and set about it slowly, day after day, step by grueling step, over the course of several years. I don’t know when it changed or how it changed, but it did and it is of no concern to me how that happened or what it all means.

I apologize. I tend to veer all over the place when trying to be concise in a short amount of time. These are my rambling thoughts.

To get back on point, I believe that anyone can create. There is no prerequisite. If you happen to have something different about you, whatever that is, I say use it. Tom Waits had a great quote that I am about to butcher. He said something to the effect of, “My favorite singers and artists are the ones who took that thing about them that seemed like a liability and turned it into an asset.”

I was a shy kid with asthma and a stuttering problem form Mahtomedi, MN. Yet somehow I made that work for me.

I wore the Batman shirt to the first taping of today’s @midnight,  and the Marc Maron WTF shirt to the second taping.  (Which they’ll show tomorrow night.)

I was an abusive, selfish, needy, angry asshole.

Now I’m just kind of selfish, a little less angry, occasionally needy, with flights of asshole. I’ve grown
