I had a request to share what discs I carry in my bag. But now that I have them out, I realize the collection will look weird... because I mostly drive with my forehand so theres a disproportionate number of overstable discs like the Flick, fireball, firebird & mvp dimension ....
For backhand drivers, I have the Catan, Tern & MVP Wave (13, 12 and 11 speed respectively). But I've gotten good results from slower discs...Avenger SS (10), & MVP Inertia (9). The inertia in partic is a great disc. Plus the Leopard & TeeBird, 2 discs that all beginners shd have
On the right are the slow discs... putter, prodigy Model S, and the Deflector. The latter is a great disc for getting around trees and tight corners.... there are rounds where the deflector had saved me 3 or 4 strokes on its own
P.s. if anyone knows where to buy Inertias, lmk. I usually buy from InfiniteDiscs, but sold out for a while

"On Having Whiteness" was just published in JAPA
On the left: the abstract
On the right: the abstract...with 4 word substitutions:

Whiteness -> Demonic Possession
White People -> Unbelievers
Non-whites -> Godly Christians
Social-historical -> spiritual

Having briefly worked in a woke milieu, I can attest that the people who are most vulnerable to this cult are lapsed Christians who have a Sunday church-scold-shaped hole in their consciousness. Self-lacerating theories of "whiteness" fit in perfectly with this
the most insane thing about this is that these are PSYCHOANALYSTS — and yet they lack the self-awareness that any ordinary person has when it comes to cults.

I just got sent a copy of the Peel District School Board @PeelSchools 12-page "Discriminatory Slurs and Statements in Learning Environments" memo, and what a doozy this thing is ....
As you would expect, it bans every kind of insult or controversial opinion under the sun—from the N-word and swastikas, right down to countless vaguely defined categories like "statements that perpetuate systems of oppression based on gender identity."
But the creepiest aspect is the "failure to report." If you are a janitor, a teacher, a lunch worker—anyone—& you overhear anyone making a comment that "perpetuates systems of oppression" (or any of the 187 other forbidden categories) and you fail to snitch, u can be fired.

for those following the train wreck at @canartca, here are more details
actually, a simple "train wreck" metaphor doesn't suffice. it's more like the train crashed into a fireworks factory, which them exploded & blew the train's remnants into another, separate fireworks factory
The background here is that the chair of the Canadian Art board stepped down, so that the dean of design at @OCAD, Dori Turnstall, could take over. First order order of business from Turnstall was to have OCAD's students tell everyone what the new version of the mag would be ImageImage
(While the magazine is called "Canadian Art," Turnstall is American)
