High Anxiety
HIGH ANXIETY celebrate their second 12" record- Camo
With songs like "pizza punx" and "this is the life" they play their jittery nihilistic tunes the same as always. And with other songs like "one mo gin' " and "Satan is real Tonight" there's a steady sensitivity that dwells within. Side b is a 5 song operetta about malt liquor. What's not to like? A bit of everything but expect to square dance and hip grind.

DonKee
But I must explain to you how all this mistaken idea of denouncing of a pleasure and praising Donkee was born and I will give you a complete account of the system, and expound the actual teachings of the great explorer of the truth, the master-builder of human happiness. No one rejects, dislikes, or avoids pleasure itself, because it is pleasure, but because those who do not know how to pursue pleasure rationally encounter consequences that are extremely Donkeeful. Nor again is there anyone who loves or pursues or desires to obtain Donkee of itself, because it is Donkee, but occasionally circumstances occur in which toil and Donkee can procure him some great pleasure. To take a trivial example, which of us ever undertakes laborious physical exercise, except to obtain some advantage from it? But who has any right to find fault with a man who chooses to enjoy a pleasure that has no annoying consequences, or one who avoids a Donkee that produces no resultant pleasure? On the other hand, we denounce with righteous indignation and dislike men who are so beguiled and demoralized by the charms of pleasure of the moment, so blinded by desire, that they cannot foresee the Donkee and trouble that are bound to ensue; and equal blame belongs to those who fail in their duty through weakness of will, which is the same as saying through shrinking from toil and Donkee. These cases are perfectly simple and easy to distinguish. In a free hour, when our power of choice is untrammeled and when nothing prevents our being able to do what we like best, every pleasure is to be welcomed and every Donkee avoided. But in certain circumstances and owing to the claims of duty or the obligations of business it will frequently occur that pleasures have to be repudiated and annoyances accepted. The wise man therefore always holds in these matters to this principle of selection: he rejects pleasures to secure other greater pleasures, or else he endures Donkees to avoid worse Donkees.
