Thanks for posting this. She writes such beautiful, thoughtful songs. I love love love The Body Electric.
I’m fond of this one as well:
He’s gorgeous, but also, I love how judgmental he looks! This is clearly a dog that does not suffer fools gladly.
I love love love their lemonade. Also their frozen lemonade. It’s not what you would normally think of as frozen lemonade — it’s just their lemonade mixed with their soft serve, so basically a lemonade milkshake — and it’s AMAZING.
They know. They just don’t care, in no small part because they don’t want women to have access to birth control, either. They’re just waiting until they “win” on the abortion front to start aggressively campaigning to make birth control illegal. And in the nightmare scenario that they managed to achieve that, they’d…
Someone stopped me on the street a few months back to scream at me while I was walking my dogs. She said she saw me doing “it” every day and if I didn’t stop she’d call the police. Baffled, I asked her what “it” was, and she screamed “STOP IT!” and drove away.
I actually had the same experience with the dress — I saw white and gold. Then I read the comments (this was on Gawker), and then I scrolled up to look at the picture again and I saw blue and black just as clearly. And I never saw white and gold after that.
I heard Yanny super clearly. Then I turned the volume up and heard Laurel just as clearly. Tried it several more times with the same results.
More, from the WaPo article:
Judgmental and evangelical vegetarians and vegans are definitely a thing, and they suck beyond the telling of it. There just appears to a whole lot fewer of them than there are judgmental and evangelical meat eaters who love to them all the reasons they’re stupid, hypocritical and wrong.
When I have the luxury of reviewing draft copy, I use Word. But frequently I don’t see things until they’ve already been laid out in a design program, which means I’m editing on hard copy or making comments on a PDF, and the designer is manually inputting my changes.
I left in ‘87 too, funnily enough.
Gizmodo Media (formerly Gawker Media). So Jezebel and Gizmodo and Lifehacker and Kotaku and all the other verticals, along with the sub sites.
Vegetarianism is a reminder to some of them of a kind of moral failure (in their mind).
Well, that’s depressing. Also, fuck Tim Allen.
That may well be true, but it still means vegetarians and vegans are suffering through a whole lot more assholery than the other way around.
The Takeout (AV Club vertical) has a post about what to cook when you have vegans coming to dinner. Most posts on the subject are either on Lifehacker or the Takeout, but the few times posts have made it to Jez it’s been a shit show. Kitchenette used to always be a disaster, too.
It’s just so bizarre to me how many people interpret “loving meat” as “attacking anyone who doesn’t also love meat or chooses not to eat it.” People go on and on and ON about how horribly judgmental vegetarians and vegans are, how they can’t shut up about their diets, how they evangelize, etc. But even living in…
Unless your diet eliminates all food that doesn’t include meat and animal products — and since you say you eat spinach and potatoes, clearly it doesn’t — your hosts would be accommodating you just fine as long as they served spinach and potatoes. They wouldn’t be accommodating you if they didn’t serve anything you…
When Brock Turner was sentenced, there were a lot of comparisons made in social media to the Corey Batey case. Batey, a black college student in Tennessee, got 15 years for his first offense (participating in the gang rape of — and then urinating on — a female classmate*). But the interesting thing there is that the…
