Here are a bunch of raccoons going nuts eating some food that I'm sure was not meant for them. Two raccoons are passed out, one is sitting on its butt and they are all pigging out. This must be a major score for all these raccoons and they seem to be celebrating by eating the night away. 

My favorite part of being a gang stalker is committing my life to gang stalking for no discernible reason other than to confuse and disorient people who are already mentally ill

A reading at Spoonbill Books [99 Montrose] organized by Jeffrey Grunthaner.

Calvin LeCompte’s compositions touch on themes of aspiration, love, and existential angst with an unfiltered vulnerability that has been praised for being “as impulsive as everything else LeCompte does.” Focusing on the gritty underbelly of the home recording tradition, LeCompte’s music can be considered a distillation of the sounds and attitudes only intimated on analogue records of the past. His singular take on the pop song has not gone unnoticed, and he has received favorable mentions in The FADER and Vice, among other publications.
