I’ve been wanting to change my tumblr name for awhile now.
Then it came to me
(when I was drunk at a bar…because these are the things people think about when they are drunk at a bar…and it’s their sister’s 21st…and the girl next to them just said, “Don’t let me text anyone tonight!”).
RAISED WITH RELIGION, everyone.
Like it or not, thats what it’s going to be (for now, I mean, who knows, I could get sick of it tomorrow.)
1. Everyone here loves country. And that will be the first thing a local will ask you when you get into a pointless conversation about music with them. They will say, “Do you like country?”
And the silence between their question and my answer is something I will never get sick of.
At this point I just pretend not to hear them.
Because my country… is not their country.
And that’s okay with me,
but I can’t say the same for them.
2. Everyone here loves the Grateful Dead. Nothing but a bunch of fuckin’ deadheads here. BUT—I will say this—these country lovin’ deadheads are WAY MORE accepting of those who don’t like the Grateful Dead than they are of those who don’t like country music.
Because (to them) not liking country is like not having a soul
not liking the Grateful Dead is like not believing in god.
And you really only need one of these to be considered a person.
