Thinning The Herd: Nihilism Or Necessary?


Deathwish Inc. September 2nd, 2014.

“Unless you’ve been living under a rock..” is an offensive expression; especially because even the worms living under actual rocks in Nowhere, North Dakota have surely heard that a band called Code Orange exists and that band has released a record called I Am King via Deathwish. Inc on September 2nd, 2014. Granted, this is all within the small circle of “punk culture”, but for those of us within it the community has been overwhelmed with a single photograph of a scarred, bleeding forehead since early this summer. From periodical infiltrations of email accounts from the self-proclaimed “Thinners Of The Herd”, the seemingly endless praise from every last corner of the social media subculture spider web and even “legitimate validation” from the Billboard music charts claiming I Am King as the true leader of vinyl sales in its first week of worldwide distribution; you should know by now that this record is a tangible thing that your ears can consume.

The Smith Street Band I Want Friends

'You can't love anything before and after nine to five
The only thing you cannot buy is time
And if you saved it with half the fucking zest you saved your money
You’d realise there is nothing you need to buy’

What a fucking song, what a fucking album, what a fucking band.

I’ve been looking so long at these pictures of you
That I almost believe that they’re real
I’ve been living so long with my pictures of you
That I almost believe that the pictures are
All I can feel

Rose Deluxe Triple Chocolate Peanut Butter Sandwich Doughnuts

Is there anything better than a peanut butter sandwich? Maybe a good chocolate doughnut. Well call Reese because we’re getting chocolate all up in your peanut butter, and peanut butter all over your chocolate with these delicious nutwiches.

Ingredients, makes 10

  • 1 cup unsweetened almond milk
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 3 tbs maple syrup
  • 1tsp fresh lemon juice
  • 1/4 cup light brown sugar
  • 2 cups wholemeal flour
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/4 cup organic cocoa
  • 1/8 cup dark chocolate chips
  • 1/8 cup “milk” chocolate chips


  • It’s just smooth peanut butter (don’t use chunky or your doughnuts will tear)


  • Enough melted dark or “milk” chocolate to coat each doughnut generously


  1. Preheat oven to gas mark 4, 350F, 180C, and grease your doughnut pan.
  2. In a small bowl, mix the almond milk, lemon juice, vanilla, sugar, and maple syrup, and whisk until bubbly.
  3. In a large bowl, mix the flour, baking soda, baking powder, salt, cocoa, and chocolate chips.
  4. Add the wet mix to the dry mix and stir thoroughly, until combined.
  5. Fill the pan cavities with the mixture. I find a great way to do this is to roll the dough into a sausage shape, and bend it around the cavity, then press it down. This will ensure smooth tops to your doughnuts, and a really good texture throughout.
  6. Bake for 15-16 minutes.
  7. Leave to cool in the pan for 5 minutes, then remove the doughnuts, and slice each one like a bagel.
  8. Spread peanut butter on both halves of the doughnut, and put the two halves back together.
  9. Melt the chocolate for topping in a bowl over boiling water, and dunk each doughnut in one at a time, shaking off excess gently before putting it on a rack to set.
  10. Leave the doughnuts to cool, and the chocolate to harden, then enjoy them. Share them with your grandparents, students, or imaginary friends, just have fun, okay?

Peace and love,



for your health.
