Strong in the Real Way (Unfinished 80's Remix WIP)
Rebecca Sugar / JerryTerry

For putting up with my wordy shit, here’s a rough WIP of an 80’s-style instrumental remix I recently started work on, of Strong in the Real Way from Steven Universe. It needs a lot of work, and I should really be working on the album instead, so it might be a while til I finish it.

Followed for the swiggity swooty, stayed for the booty ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°) ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°) ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)

look. look what you’ve done anon.

you did this to me.

Followed for awesome remixes, stayed for well-written arguments against mainstream feminism

oh no not this fad again

it starts off innocent enough, but I’ve still got an unanswered ask in my inbox that says “Followed for the Jerry, all I got was Terry. Would not recommend as a bench”.

PLEASE just stick to being really really cute/making music?

Anonymous

Can’t I be cute at the same time as sharing differing views and pointing out issues with the often-blinkered opinions I see showing up on my dash~? (See, the tilde made it cute. Everything is cute with a tilde or two~~)

Though yeah, I understand - I tag this stuff with “JT Talks Issues”, feel free to block that tag if you have no interest/don’t want to clutter your dash with that sort of thing. Unless, y’know, you’re blocking it because you have no intention of questioning or taking any form of criticism toward these opinions/trends that are in desperate need of some self-reflection and criticism. That’s just unhealthy. (Though feel free to block it anyway, because I strongly believe that it’s good to separate the content from the opinions of its creator. It’s silly to deny yourself content you like just because its creator holds some opinions you feel are shitty)

I have no idea what I’ve done to be considered cute, though. But thanks. The fact that I’m considered so by (I assume) a complete stranger is simultaneously worrying and appeasing.

Person: I’m a woman and I don’t need feminism
What she’s actually saying:
My life is perfectly okay and I don’t really care what other women go through
I think feminists are just whiny and can’t take jokes that perpetuate harmful stereotypes
I believe that people are just obsessed with political correctness
I am blind to the fact that there are still problems faced by women
I have forgotten that feminism gave women rights such as the right to vote
I have no idea that feminism is an egalitarian movement that fights for everyone’s rights regardless of sex, gender, sexuality, race, religion, nationality, and ethnicity but mostly focuses on women’s rights.
I am more concerned about semantics rather than human rights
I can’t distinguish between real feminists and shitty people who call themselves feminists
I still believe in the false notion that feminism is about hating men
I actually don’t understand what feminism is

But also:
I feel that the definition of a movement shifts with its most vocal and active members, and I am seeing such a growing number of dishearteningly cynical, misinformed, or downright underhanded (see: Sarkeesian-brand ‘feminism’) things done and said in the name of feminism that I no longer wish to be identified under that flag.
A movement founded on getting men to stop forcibly telling women what they need should not be, y’know, forcibly telling women what they need. You can support a thing without  having to identify with a movement, especially if you feel that the movement no longer represents your best interests or contains a number of people you consider to be taking it in an unpleasant direction. “I can’t distinguish between real feminists and shitty people who call themselves feminists” is an awful scapegoat - who are you to say who is and isn’t a real feminist? Anyone who acts under the flag of feminism is representing feminism, you can’t just hand-wave counter-productive behaviour with “oh no, they’re not a real feminist”. Especially when people like Sarkeesian are considered by many within the movement to be a real feminist - exploiting the oppression of women to make money, intentionally using misinformation (to prove something that’s real enough to be proved without misinformation, no less), and appropriating feminism to benefit yourself; if these are considered attributes of real feminism, I have no idea what grade of evil gets you branded as a ‘fake’. 
This isn’t anti-feminism, there are far too many strains and submovements of feminism that decrying it is ignorant. It would be downright stupid to deny that our ingrained cultural biases don’t impact women negatively, and even men in some cases. But women should have a choice. Feminism was founded when men pushed women into a corner, skewed their reality and told them “you need us big strong men to take care of the clever things, the heavy things. You shouldn’t have to vote, you shouldn’t have to worry about learning, you’d be much happier being a housewife”. Feminism broke through to give women a choice, something they’d been constantly denied. Liberal Feminism, Radical Feminism, Conservative Feminism, Sex-positive Feminism: there are so many submovements within feminism, each with differing views. Yet somehow, the internet has begun to homogenise it in a way only the internet can, and now you often have to either identify under this catch-all ‘one true feminism’ flag that contains people you disagree with, or risk being ostracised, looked down upon, or being outright told that you ‘need’ to get under that flag.
This “with us or against us” ideology silences women, tells them what’s best for them, and robs them of choice. That sure sounds a lot like the very thing feminism set out to fight.

I hear that on the Mexicana stance. As I always say - spice not heat. Give me a wonderful barrage of spicy flavours, give me a nice tingle on the tongue, but let's not spread napalm in my mouth. Also Mexicana on a nice boiga', delicious. Not tried many paté's but, and I think I'll be giving away that we live in the same region, a good plate of liver and onions, keeps me happy. Thanks for the answer too =].

Anonymous

Oh man, Mexicana melted on a burger is truly delicious. One amazing experiment I tried was a grilled Mexicana and Chorizo toasty, oh boy that was the best toasty of my life.

I really don’t eat liver and onions enough, I tend to spit in the face of my heritage and lean more toward spiced foreign foods or barbecue-seasoned foods. Do you mean “same region” as in England, or as in Northampton?

While I’m talking about my favourite cheese, I have to admit that until very recently, its tag-line pissed me off so much. It was problematic as fuck. I mean, take a look at this piece of shit:
image

"Dare you.. it BITES back!"
Alright, I mean, what the fuck, right? 

  • Two-point elipsis, fucking elementary mistake
  • "Dare you" is a fucking question, where’s the mark for that shit!?
  • Why the fuck is “BITES” capitalised. Go ahead, read it out loud with emphasis on “BITES”. Sounds fucking stupid, right? I get it, you bite the cheese, and the joke is that it ‘bites’ back because it’s spicy. But in that case, surely “BACK” would be the point of emphasis. Did these fuckers even pass English?

Don’t worry, though - if you were considering writing to your local representative or member of parliament with your outrage, there’s no need. Clearly many people had the same idea, because it was recently changes to a more stylised “DARE YOU? IT BITES BACK”

Just goes to show there is some fucking justice in this world.

What is your favourite kind of cheese and cracker? I personally go with a good smoked cheese or one blended with garden herbs and garlic. As for cracker, I favour the more wheat/grain based cracker as opposed to the water cracker. How about you?

Anonymous

Hmm, good question. I like certain cheeses, and I like certain crackers, but you’ve really gotta take into account the blend between the cheese and the cracker. For example, one of my favourite cheeses is Ilchester’s Extra-hot Mexicana cheddar (annoyingly, the extra-hot variety has more flavour than the normal type. I don’t mind the heat, but it’s distracting when you’re just trying to enjoy some cheese). That cheese really doesn’t go too well with crackers though.

I’d say you’ve got it on the nose: a nice whole-wheat cracker with a good smoked Gouda, or a smooth garlic-blended cheese - those really hit the spot. Admittedly, I’m more of a pâté man myself. Call me a heathen, but a nice duck or venison pâté on my cracker really does it for me, much more than cheese in general.

You do commissions?

Anonymous

I took on a few commissions once. I immediately learned that I’m terrible at the pressures of being payed to make music, and it ultimately threw me into a weird downward spiral of anxiety and depression that lasted about a year.

So yeah. No. Though I do sometimes do requests if it’s an idea I’m interested in. Or if it’s a project I feel I could learn from or enjoy, I occasionally do them for free if I have the time.

Rough WIP for a Ukinojoe/90's Nick remix
JerryTerry/Ukinojoe

jerryterry:

I’ve been on the fence about sharing this WIP as it would’ve been a cool surprise if I released it out of nowhere. But it’s something I started a while ago, and between commissions and other projects there’s no way I’ll get it finished any time soon. So, here’s a rough WIP for the first half of a 90’s Nick remix.

Obviously it’s really rough, I’m still working on mastering the vocoded vocals better and fixing it up. And it’s half finished, that weird abrupt ending is a transition into a short gameboy-style chiptune section (possibly with lo-fi vocals).

Hopefully I’ll get to work more on this someday.

Ohshit, I forgot this was even a thing. It’s been over a year, but I think I might go back and finish this. It needs work - maybe beef up those weak-ass drums with a 90’s-as-shit Amen Break or something. I’m not letting this one get abandoned, I’ll figure something out.

Just an update to show that steady progress is definitely being made on the album. (The track named “Old Memes” will probably change names. My mysterious collaborator named it so — and came up with some pretty nicely-used samples for it — but I’m having second thoughts)Might share the 50% WIP of “It Thinks It’s Human” in a little while.

C’mon, you know my answer already, could you at least respond
to those points rather than just throwing out the exact same
sentence and expecting it to suddenly be valid?

Look, maybe I’ll believe you when one of you actually provides
a single valid reason to support this opinion. A reason that
doesn’t just rely on making up your own definitions to pre-
established words.

Seriously though, I’m as open-minded to debate as they come. If
there’s some compelling argument you think might change my mind on this, I’d really like to hear it.
