I like Metal. It is my preferred genre of music right next to Chiptune and Dubstep. But contrary to normie beliefs, not all Metal is created equal. So I created a nifty little scale called The J.A Vasquez Measurement of Hardcoreness.

1. Normie Garbage

This is everything from Taylor Swift to Ed Sheeran and from J Cole to Luke Byrant. Normie mainstream garbage that is safe to show to your grandma. Your fucking grandma for Christsakes. I swear to Satan that if I have to listen to "Lemonade" by Beyonce one more time, someone's windpipe is gonna get crushed.

2. Emo Vampires

So near the bottom of the Hardcore food chain are what I call Emo Vampires. These are your Alesanas, your Snow White's Poison Bites, Your Vampires Everywheres (hence the name). Also this is where *shudders* Blood on the Dance Floor falls in. Dear God. I think I'm gonna puke. Let me just move on quickly...

3. Mid-Tier Metalcore

Okay so this group is in the middle. Not really normie but then again not really that hardcore. Bring Me The Horizon and All That Remains are great examples of this level of Hardcore. Note that while this does have Metalcore in it's name, not every band will fall under the Metalcore genre (see Helia).

4. The Other "Cores"

So we have the rest of the "core" metal genres: Deathcore, Grindcore, etc. This stuff is like kryptonite to most normies. We are talking about Suicide Silence, I Killed The Prom Queen, etc. This is some pretty hardcore stuff. However, many normies consider this music to be Satanic. Which is funny because...

5. Really Hardcore Shit

This is the satanic shit that would melt the face off of any normie. We got Satanic Warmaster, Burzum, Behemoth, Dark Funeral... alongside Death Metal (The Faceless, Cannibal Corpse, Cattle Decapitation, and Waco Jesus). This is the top of the Hardcore food chain.

Slavery Was NOT Abolished

Jeevti from Pakistan would like to tell you so herself.


Unfortunately, at this time of year, we tend to overlook how incredibly blessed we are. We live in a free world, where we should not have to fear being penalized for our gender, sexual orientation, beliefs, or values. This is a fact we take for granted; in many other countries, simply being born female makes you an immediate target.

My Ethnicity

Hispanic is not a race... it’s an ethnicity. The term Hispanic describes a group of people whose common thread is language and/or culture. I’m a Hispanic woman born in Argentina to Korean parents. I self-identify as Hispanic/Latina and my personal experiences can’t be summarized by the color of my skin or the languages on my tongue. That is because every single person in the universe has a unique experience. Whether someone labels me as Korean or Argentine or American, that will never change my experiences as a Spanish speaker, immigrant, child of divorced parents, Californian, college graduate (Go Bears!), omnivore, writer, or any other label I choose for myself.

Your Work Week As Told By Michael Scott And Stanley Hudson

"The Office" is basically the best American TV show created in the past 15 years (you can fight me on this). And through all its hilarity and cringe-worthy "that would never happen in real life" moments, the show really does have a lot of relatable themes, as can be seen by the little compilation I put together of Michael Scott and Stanley Hudson.

October Is Overrated, Let's Just Accept This Fact

I have never liked the month of October. I like the fall weather and the beginning of wearing sweaters in the crisp fall air, but I never associated this with the month of October.
