I Like Giants /// Kimya Dawson
Fuck. Goddamn. This song makes me emotional at times for reasons I can’t fully understand.
I remember seeing Kimya back in 2010 at the Mine in Ballard, WA w/ Difiance Ohio, Yr Heart Breaks & Chin Up Merriwether at a lovely tightly packed show. Anyways, shortly before her set I basically begged Kimya to play “I Like Giants” and then a little before the end of her set she looked at me, nodded and said “You’ve got it” as she started to play it.
This song always hits like a brick of emotions to the point that I ended up basically bawling as I sang along through the song and a little bit after her set was finished she came up to me saying she’d noticed me crying and asked if I was alright & offered a hug. It was oddly beautiful to be comforted by the musician who’d just unknowingly tore a bit my emotional stability.

That man’s voice is addicting, I almost always have “She’s Like Heroin” or “For the Love of Ivy” stuck in my head.
Having a minor freak out at the NYC greyhound as I wait to go home, verging on a full on panic attack and the one person I’d pray would help calm me… is fucking ignoring me.
My dysphoria is insane. Almost the whole Xmas visit to my sister’s in Boston he’d say “real men don’t do that” whenever I’d ‘aww’ over my baby niece. Then earlier on the bus down here I mentioned an article I was reading of a transwoman killed & butchered by her father when she came out, his response? Basically that she should’ve kept if to herself and either never started to transition or just left and cut all toes before she started.
I’m trying to call on Monday to start therapy… I don’t fucking need this fear…
Reblog if you’re lonely tonight.
