Unraveler - “Entomologist” (Folk-O-Rama Session)

Dakota did a half stand-up comedy and half music set when we played together in Pittsburgh. This session is just music, but maybe someday we will meet again and record a Joke-O-Rama session.

Against Me - “True Trans Soul Rebel” (Folk-O-Rama Session)

Laura Jane Grace played a couple songs for Folk-O-Rama in an alley on a very windy day in downtown Columbia, MO. Both songs are from the band’s brand new record “Transgender Dysphoria Blues.”

Here are some brief words about the song: 

I am a fat kid. 

I have been fat for most of my life. I’m the kind of chubby kid where I realize I’ve lost weight only by realizing that I can fit my whole hand into a pringles can.

I guess I’m the kind of chubby, where my friends will make a joke about someone’s weight, or call someone “fat,” and then realize that they’re in my company, and awkwardly apologize. They like to say things like “you’re not THAT fat, dude.” In reality, though, I am at an unhealthy weight for my age and size, and I don’t always like the way I look when I stare into a mirror. 

There’s also a difference between being critical of yourself, channeling that into constructive change, and what I actually do (fall into a pit of self-loathing that normally ends into a exploration of the newest flavor of Ben and Jerry’s).

This song is about the latter.

It’s about looking into the mirror, and thinking to yourself “ah, dammit”. It’s also about realizing that, while my health is important, and that keeping myself fit is something I should strive for, that my self-worth should not be attached to a number on a scale. I am worthy of love, and I need to be willing to accept the love I am given.

I am ugly, I am imperfect, and I am beautiful”

And here are the lyrics:

There are too many mirrors around me today
too many mirrors and too many angles
too many perspectives in this dressing room
I wish I didn’t know that’s what I looked like
And there stores out there that don’t want me
Just like there are people out there that don’t want me
And I am learning to be ok with who I am
And I am learning to be ok with who I’m not gonna be

Someday I might lose all of this weight
But I will carry it wherever I go
Because there will always be a part of me that hates this body 
Because I carry it wherever I go
And to all my confident friends, I wish I knew how you did it
I wish I knew
I wish I knew
I wish I knew

But, today there are too many mirrors around me
Yeah, today there are too many mirrors around me
And someday I hope we all break them
Someday I hope we all break them
Someday I hope we break everything that keeps us from loving ourselves

Here’s a song about eating too many Pop Tarts.  It’s actually based on a story my friend Chris once told me about this weird day he had where he ate a bunch of Pop Tarts.  I told him he should write a song about it but he didn’t want to so I wrote the song instead.  For the record, I think Pop Tarts are gross.  They have zero nutritional value and are not something you should eat for breakfast.  I recommend eating fruit and/or maybe some granola in coconut milk with a sliced up banana mixed in.
