me: have you ever heard the sound of someone breaking down uncontrollably
i don’t feel like a real adult, i just feel like tommy and chucky in that one rugrats episode where they imagine being grownups they have adult bodies and are wearing suits but they still have their baby heads and they’re trying to drive and go to work and stuff but they don’t understand what’s happening

These are mostly first-hand accounts from UK antifascists:
No Retreat: The Secret War Between Britain’s Anti-Fascists and the Far Right by Dave Hann, Steve Titzey
Some books about older antifascist struggles:
Homage to Catalonia by George Orwell
Also, I have Militant Anti-Fascism: A Hundred Years of Resistance, which looks more like an international overview, but I haven’t read it yet.
There were also some good articles online about antifa recently but I can’t find them now :/ Any followers care to add any links?

for the people questioning whether this really is part of adhd or not
In case anyone was wondering, this is Dr. Russell Barkley, Ph.D., a clinical psychologist and expert on ADHD.
This quote comes from his lecture “30 Essential Ideas You Should Know about ADHD,” which you can find on YouTube as a 27-video playlist. This part is specifically in the second video of that playlist (about 8 minutes in).
I highly recommend watching these videos. If you can’t focus that long (I can’t, lol), then open the transcripts and read through them. Lots of info.
if my pitched-down, chopped-up remix of the wii shop channel theme gets stuck in ur head as much as the original gets stuck in mine, then i’ve accomplished my goal. if not then fuck u
This is the character select theme for the chillest arcade cabinet racing game where every level takes place at 2am in the most inexplicably neon-lit city. Any time you crash into another object it just makes a satisfying “ding!” sfx that layers on top of the music.
