Yeah, it’s a little Cassette Kids in the chorus and Sunderland is absolutely chewing his way from the top to the bottom of the bassline, but there’s an innocence and awkwardness in Beril Guceri’s vocal track that betrays the brick wall she and guitarist Brooke Blair were hitting as this freshman effort came together. Guceri’s glassy end of the track is one-fifth Siouxsie, one-fifth McVie and three-fifths Katrina Noorbergen but it elevates the standard picking-up-the-pieces Grrrl Rock formula by injecting a little twee irony.
Rumors it’s not, but for a Philly effort produced in jeopardy, it ain’t bad.
omg hi! where the hell have you been? I think I missed you!
A hard question to answer, you see … I have so many passions. Was I diving into the frigid waters off the coast of Chile, wrestling orphans from the icy breast of the sea? Was I feeding on the sweet, gamey livers of those who would do violence to our way of life on the sun-baked flats of North Africa?
You ever go to wash up after doing your business in the bathroom at work, and sort of start thinking about something, and then totally space out, ultimately snapping awake to realize that you've been washing your hands for like six to eight minutes while multiple other people have been entering and exiting the bathroom and probably wondering what the hell you got all over your hands?
Plaintiffs have demonstrated by overwhelming evidence that Proposition 8 violates their due process and equal protection rights and that they will continue to suffer these constitutional violations until state officials cease enforcement of Proposition 8. California is able to issue marriage licenses to same-sex couples, as it has already issued 18,000 marriage licenses to same-sex couples and has not suffered any demonstrated harm as a result,see FF 64-66; moreover, California officials have chosen not to defend Proposition 8 in these proceedings.
Because Proposition 8 is unconstitutional under both the Due Process and Equal Protection Clauses, the court orders entry of judgment permanently enjoining its enforcement; prohibiting the official defendants from applying or enforcing Proposition 8 and directing the official defendants that all persons under their control or supervision shall not apply or enforce Proposition 8. The clerk is DIRECTED to enter judgment without bond in favor of plaintiffs and plaintiff-intervenors and against defendants and defendant-intervenors pursuant to FRCP 58.
