Poor Life Choices documents a group of fuckups (mostly) from Seattle who are far too smart to abuse drugs and alcohol like it’s a competitive sport but do it anyway. I think it is half a “life as performance art” joke, but the fact that I’m uncertain about their self-awareness is exactly why it’s so great. If you’re not down with PLC (both the blog and drugs/alcohol/violence/hookups), you are a pussy and should find a way to have your ambitions, heart, goals, and dreams crushed until this sounds familiar: “Well, I really shouldn’t take this handful of unknown pills I got from that random dude at the corner store and fuck that skeezy girl, but whatevs… it’s Tuesday, I deserve it!!”
Here’s some of my personal favorites (all captions are theirs, not mine), but there is so much more than this. Definitely check out the site for more! The person who emailed me wasn’t letting on one way or the other, but I think they have something to do with BTM/3A (graffiti crews made up of some of the West Coast’s all time hardest bombers and legit sketchy motherfuckers; 3A = Anything Anytime Anywhere and they’re not fucking kidding). If I’m wrong, just let me know and I’ll edit this- but I can’t see how there are people in Seattle who are this fucked up and NOT down with BTM amirite?! If you’re in BTM, don’t stab me bro: BTM rules it and I’m just having some fun.
PS I’m not going to say which ones, but a few of these are images I contributed to PLC. I was somewhat dismayed to see a few where I thought to myself, “Hmm… is that one mine?? I don’t remember that happening but it looks familiar…” No joke, it was one of the proudest moments of my career as a writer to see my work on PLC! Thanks dudes!!
