This song is so so good.
All of a sudden I am scared.
All of a sudden I can’t breathe.
All of a sudden I am nothing
In this moment
You are everything
Jakob bought me 2 shirts to add to my TFT shirt collection
D-Ray playing trombone through city hall at the protest of the proposed noise ordinance yesterday. Also pictured our good friend Willie Archambeault @wwarchamb. Photo taken by Alex Woodward at Gambit Weekly. #musicisnotacrime #novcporalaw (at City Hall)
that’s my dad!
Just ordered the t shirt but Andy put in a signed poster 2 CDs and 2 stickers
"i’m vegan because i’m fighting against animal cruelty so i’m having these vegetables and fruits which are 100% cruelty free"
yeah lol except for the fact that it’s not 100% cruelty free for the people pick them food for you
This is such nonsense logic. I know people like to find holes in the ethics of vegans because it allows them to ignore their own unethical behavior. Furthermore, I know that white vegans have rarely been good about dissecting and examining our privilege, how culture affects food choices, and whiteness in general. That said, the sentiment above is still way off.
People who eat animals also eat vegetables- in fact, you all eat twelve to fifteen times the amount of grains and vegetables that vegans eat, you just feed that food to non-humans first. That food was also picked in the same capitalist-exploitative way that my vegetables were picked, but then those animals were shipped from the human rights nightmare of a stock yard or factory farm to the human rights nightmare of a slaughterhouse, and then onto the human rights nightmare of processing plants.
Vegans do contribute to the racist agricultural industry that treats field workers as biological machines, but we contribute less than people who eat animals do. Moreover, many of us work on food justice issues, are aware that non-humans aren’t the only exploited grouping in food production (Raise your hands if you are a fellow vegan who doesn’t eat chocolate or tomatoes unless you know the source isn’t using slave labor) and envision a way of feeding our bio-regions that isn’t based on profits.
this is really really important+well worded and i appreciate this so much what an important thing to articulate
^^^ for the commentary.
After posting the old photos we received a lot of requests to order them and any of the other merch I had found. Unfortunately shipping posters is a big pain so we are going to save those until we do something live again but I did put up all the shirts I could find. 25 different designs/color variations are available now. Most of them only have one or two per design left. We made it so you can search by size to make it easier to track down shirts that will fit you. I am leaving for a 5 month tour on Sunday so any shirts ordered by Saturday night will be shipped on Sunday. I also found a bunch of old stickers and promo CDs, those are bound to make it into most of the orders we receive. Check out what’s available at THEFLAMINGTSUNAMIS.BIGCARTEL.COM
Cleaning out a closet full of old stuff at my parents house. Prepare for old memory picture dump. These were posters we screened ourselves and attached mustaches to for the very first March Mustache Madness, the homecoming from 6 months of touring.
Got about 10 of these sitting around.
Yo can I snag one? I pre-ordered Externalities back in ‘11 and it would be so cool to have something like this hang at my desk here at my college.
We plan to make them available to people the next time we do something live, but shipping them is a huge pain in the ass especially since these are printed on very thick stock. I am going to put the rest of the TFT merch I just found up in the store sometime today though.
