Re: Twitter!

I read those replies you posted and have no idea what they are trying to say. It seems like they are trying to make vague unease(which I assume is normal) into some grand theory on reality. I'm not an intellectual and try my best to not fake being one. Is that what they are trying to do? Same. I'm ...

And do people of scots-irish descent count as white?
Not white. Just like all the Slavs you hear about that are part of white nationalist groups.

Re: Twitter!

The use of the royal we is more infuriating than the insistence that five deaths over two years is notable in any sense beyond the orgasmic release that clearly comes from using the royal we unnecessarily. As long as the bodies can be picked up to keep from ruining the view, I would be okay with a ...

Re: It's not the size of the screen...

I haven't seen season 2, but a blog that I read made the argument that it should be watched as satire of neo-noir detective shows:

Re: It's not the size of the screen...

I've been really enjoying Parks and Recreation but this last season is terrible. The whole Google/Facebook analog "stealing muh datas" is ridiculous even for that show. Most importantly it hasn't been very funny either. The writing in general has been declining in the later seasons but this is beco...

After making it through The Tunnel and then finding Gravity's Rainbow much easier on the reread, I decided to take another crack at The Recognitions . I'm about 60% through, and this has to be the hardest book I've ever read. I don't know which is tougher: scenes that are 4-10 characters all talking...

Ooh, that's a good'un. If you liked that one, you might also enjoy "Almost was Good Enough" from the same album. It has the same Neil Young & Crazy Horse vibe and seamlessly incorporates some parts of Neil's "On the Weekend." The whole album is solid, but "Such Pretty Eyes for a Snake" and "Almost ...

Re: Calling 2020 for Entropy

There being no debtors prisons, it's still quite possible for many people to go their entire lives blowing off their student loans and the only adverse consequences are bad credit. Although there is that Supreme Court ruling that SS payments can be garnished to pay student loan debts. That will be ...
