oldmistyaeons said: hi yoni. i just went through a bout with my crohn's disease, and just wanted to say that from entering the hospital to recovering at home now, "by torpedo or crohn's" has been a relieving song to have playing on nearby speakers or inside my head. i hope you're doing well with your own case, and if you ever feel like writing about your experience with the disease—and how came to write music about it—i for one would be interested. i'll understand if it's a sore subject though! take care, caleb.


I’m glad you are out of the hospital brother. For me, it’s always a challenge but I’ve been good the past couple days. I’m constantly tweeking my diet and exercise and work routines. I try to think of the disease as a spiritual issue with gutters to keep me rolling straight down the lane. I’m sensitive to everything. Health is in perfection but I try not to be discouraged if things aren’t perfect. In this one life, you have to just roll with the punches and caresses too. Can’t be too affected.

Love this

"I looked down at my book again, and when I glanced up I saw the dynamic that had been at play the entire length of our conversation: the man’s dick was out of his pants. I looked down quickly and thought about what would provide him the least satisfaction. I considered ignoring it for the final two stops of my ride, but I felt the anger rise in me. I looked up into his eyes, and said, “Get away from me.” He smiled. “What?” “You know what I said. Get away from me and cover yourself.” I pointed toward the door. “Cover yourself. Cover yourself,” I repeated in full voice until he apologized and pulled his pants up."

Maybe it’s because I’ve read too many stories about women being raped in frat basements and abused by athletes – who, especially if they’re white, tend to go unpunished or get away with a light slap on the wrist. (Well, as long as TMZ doesn’t leak a recording of the incident.) Maybe it’s because I’ve seen groups of men challenge each other to prove their masculinity in ways that are dangerous to themselves and others. Maybe it’s a vestigial fear of the guys who threw kickballs at my head in junior high-gym class (not that I’m saying I wasn’t an easy target, as a 6ft-2in nerd with buck teeth and all of the physical grace of a baby giraffe taking its first steps on the savanna). Maybe it’s because, as an adult, I’ve been harassed by drunk white men far more often than any other demographic.

Or perhaps it comes down to statistics: I’m white, and white people are most likely to be raped and murdered by other white people.
