Pinned oot

Y'all, I'm on a business trip in Houston. this is my first time in the city, so I figured I'd get the "authentic Houston experience" by not driving at all and walking the half mile radius around my hotel. It's so dismal it makes me giddy. Come along with me, won't you?

Earnest :

Call me Max (not my real name but w/e). Queer polyam South Florida leftist, 25. Former College Radio music director.

Raised in the helltown of Celebration, FL (yes, really) so I know what it's like to grow up in a cult.

I run a music blog, am trying to learn guitar, and earnestly love Taco Bell. I visit the art museum at least monthly.

I ❤️ music and am always down to talk about it / give recommendations. Lets follow each other!

How come all my friends on here are cool and good looking

Yah I like listening to noise music and wandering through spaces like this that are supposedly designed to be normal, friendly, nice spaces but are actually horrifying when you stop and really open your eyes.

I was thinking about making a music video to my noise album that was just still shots of all the god awful mcmansion beach houses (that are empty even when they are occupied) around me that replaced the tiny, working class beach houses full of character around me.

an ordinary houston office park on a sunday. a contextless, almost featureless space; like something from a PS1 game with distance fog

zones without people. spaces without meaning.

sometimes, as in the second office, things get so drab that they cross over back to being interesting. Like, why is that path leading into a window with no door? did this level not get tested yet?

We sally forth and find a comfort inn and suites not too different than the fairfield inn where I'm staying.

On one side there's a weird for sale house (could be former medical offices?), and on the other side we find a drab industrial building.

also, lots of security cameras. remember, this is the comfort inn and suites. for there to be true comfort everyone must be watched at all times

across the street from this popeyes, we find a strip mall; based on the design I'd guess early to mid 2000s in design.

couple things I like here. I like how there are no places to sit or interact with outside, but they still put that one sad desperate plant. Also I like this Kolache place that has no clue what its identity is, advertising italian panini and korean bulgogi right next to each other. Is it a drug front? who knows!

Show thread

the safest places to walk to are this restaurant that's closed on sundays which looks like a former drive-in, a shipley donuts (will try--would like to get a kolache while I'm here, and a popeyes. I ate lunch at that popeyes. the restaurant was blaring a station that was peaking and distorting the speakers. It played "the 80s, 90s, and today," which is code for unoffensive white people music. this popeye's by the side of the highway was good. I am satisfied.

resolving to become even softer and more delicate under these troubling circumstances

Printers, scanners, faxes...they’re all key pieces of a balanced breakfast
