Tomorrow's music for 🇭🇹 history class, earthquake session. I'll finally give them some @wyclef; his Hope for Haiti performance on the CNN telethon is not online anymore, but I downloaded a few yrs ago. One of the most brilliant performances (& acts of resistance against CNN's...
...narrative about helpless people getting rescued by foreigners) I've ever seen. I may also show the schlocky US #WeAreTheWorldforHaiti video. & thanks to a sugg'n from Nadève Ménard 6 ago, I'll have them compare that to #AyitiLeve.
I have so many songs I put in the hopper (placeholder playlist) before the semester, and only a few weeks left to decide what makes it to a class session!

Thread on the backgound of Diane Culligan, who claimed in May to control a bizarre breakaway club from #MillwallLionesses & husband Anthony, a former shirt sponsor's owner (which recently declared Insolvency at the High Court).

An off-site page of this thread unrolls at its end.
FYI @kelly_noble1 @MichelleYoung90

Anthony David Culligan, b.1963, (husband of @Diane_Culligan) owns 31.73% of SETL Developments Ltd, Co. Number 09704844

Mrs Culligan became Director of #MillwallLionesses, June 2018 & assumed Notifiable Control of @FAWC_ club, Oct.2018

#MillwallLionesses bore the one of the brand logos of Mr Culligan's #TechStartup company, namely as "SETL Blockchain" = @SETL_io

This story. Brad Pitt enthusiastically promised New Orleans’ 9th Ward:

150k house featuring green-focused initiatives: solar panels, modern design w/ artistic rooflines, designer built & u get to pick a model.

Yep, he did & got tons of praise/$/buyers.…
1) Meaning his non-profit was promising a designer house costing millions, charging poor people 150k, & here’s the kicker:

a) has 0 experience building houses but thought he’d influence the future of building!

b) prioritised lofty ideals (solar) over fundamentals (structure).
2) So clearly an incidence #FyreFestival here. I’m sure he meant well but boy was he self-absorbed enough to think his star power & sheer will would bypass basic economics & common sense.

These people spent tons of $ on good “intentions” & not much on building sound shelters

The craziest thing about that Fyre festival doc, and this may have already been said, is that THAT many people value Ja Rules opinion on non Murder Inc related topics
.....also it was a red flag Ashanti wasn’t on the roster. That was the first sign something wasn’t quite right. #FyreFestival

1/ The #FyreFestival documentaries on both Netflix and Hulu are so good. You MUST watch both. Netflix is a deeper dive into the fraudulent activity of the business and founder. Hulu offers some of that as well but goes deeper into a generations impact on society.
2/ Overall #FyreFestival is a perfect example of everything that’s disgustingly wrong with the tech industry. This goes above and beyond “bro culture.” It’s way deeper than that.
3/ It’s an example of the narcissistic sociopathic nature of many founders that’s celebrated over actual intelligence. If you are a white guy who knows how to play the game, can use the right finance vernacular, and fit into character you can and will win.
