@sammysayalot Agreed, thanks Jia. I spent some time in Ann Arbor and found it, like Boston, to be extremely self-segregated and, like Boston, full of liberal whites who were concerned about racial prejudice and their own privilege, but had virtually no friends or colleagues of color. There exists a tacit frustration in this dynamic; these white people, well-meaning to a fault, WANTED friends and colleagues of color and were very self-conscious about their lack thereof. Meanwhile, a lot of white Michigan natives who are otherwise progressive liberals, have come to loathe affirmative action in the same way they've come to loathe the UAW. Michigan is a bizarre state.
Putting the plants outside!
Do people like Sarah Silverman? I thought her show was great.
I've been in this Olympics/Ukraine haze for days. Has anything happened outside of Eastern Europe lately?
My cousin makes 3435332 yuan per week smoking weed at home in China. At first I didn't think this was possible but then I clicked a link in a comment section and now I'm facing execution.
Really hoping there isn't an on-track euthanization in the Derby this year. That always puts a damper on the party and makes me drink three juleps too many.
@madge oh i like you
@madge this is one of those rumors that can never be proven or disproven and it doesn't matter. That album is so damn good. I found pieces of Jennifer's body just the other day.
Say what you will about Courtney Love, but Live Through This is fucking incredible. Also, if we're giving Hole the entire album, I ask the same treatment for Sonic Youth's Experimental Jetset Trash and No Star. Fucking. Incredible.
