and things were very historical
I'm Riet. I werf flammen at things I don't like and pickel the hauben of things I like. History. Crass jokes. Revolution. Conrad Veidt's impossible face. Mitchell and Webb. Big smooshy dogs. Germany. Dapper folks. Werfing flammen at bigots, especially Naztalgists. Uniforms. Folk Punk. Cowardice. Crushing depression. Pickelhaubes. Politics. Gulag. Genocide. The Aubreyad. Russian music. Klezmer. Cookies. Hornblower. Things what look like other things. And finally, the love of my life, the Red Army Chorus.

suicide! :D (not really though, just wishful thinking)

today is a day when literally everything that you do is conclusive proof that you should kill yourself right now

which is just fucking great because, buddy, I wish. I spent as much time on top of high places as some people do planning their Pinterest wedding, motivated by similar feelings.

there is nothing more i desire on this earth than death.

unfortunately I cosigned a loan.

wait is it day of silence today

nope that was last week

does this make me more or less assimilated?

someone appears to be watching porn at full volume

but it sounds like Stoya (DON’T LOOK AT ME THAT WAY) so i’m not as grumpy as i could be

she’s always so happy! :D such a sweet balloon porn star.

normal, healthy relationships (between family members, coworkers, friends, roommates, or significant others) now seem weird and disgusting to me.

everyone’s so fucking CLOSE to each other. endless shudder. makes me nervous just to think about it.

Your sleep position says a lot about your relationship


According to a new U.K. study, these questions may be telling signs of your relationship. Researchers at the University of Hertfordshire surveyed over 1,000 people about their sleeping positions, as well as their satisfaction with their partner. The result: A staggering 94% of people who maintained contact while sleeping said they were happy, while only 68% of those who did not touch said the same.

or maybe people who touch their partner while sleeping are clingy and are wont to convince themselves that relationship=happiness.

I would tell you how this adventure went but it was smack in the middle of what a social worker would call an extremely dire bout of depression.

since I am not depressed it was merely a week of hideous subhumanity, even more vulgar than most.

this is unfair to all the people who were wonderful to me.

I can’t do anything but drink until I assume a primitive state of stimulus and response, in which I am now.

(and in which I have been for over a year WHOOPS DID I SAY THAT)

also, the original Friedrich, whose name is actually David, originated in the song “Warsaw is Khelm”, and damned if Hamtramck isn’t the closest thing to Warsaw in the United States. So he should be glad.

adventures with Friedrich

I blog about this stupid pillowcase like cat people blog about their cats.

not sorry.

Pretty sure the phrase most descriptive of this place is “halal kielbasa”.

because if that’s a thing, it’s here.

The life of a third wheel

WTF AM I DOING HERE

if you aren’t sure your purchase is going to clear

WHY ARE YOU SPENDING $10 ON A SANDWICH?????????

WHY ARE YOU OUT OF THE HOUSE?

WHY ARE YOU EVEN EATING?

THIS ISN’T CUTE AND IT ISN’T FUNNY.
