really find it hard to believe that people spend hours of their lives listening to these dweebs
anyway it would have actually ruled if obama gave a rose garden address telling the nation's white men to stop listening to rock. "nickelback, um, hoobastank, uh, chevelle — you need to, uh, put that away. cut it out."
"now, there are young people who study in our schools, they play in our neighborhoods, they’re friends with our kids, they pledge allegiance to our flag. but they still listen to 311 and, folks, we can't have that"

you might want to read a little further than that
“Under whatever guise, however a Jefferson Davis may appear, as man, as race, or as nation, his life can only logically mean this: the advance of a part of the world at the expence of the whole: the overweening sense of the I and the consequent forgetting of the Thou.”
“To say that a nation is in the way of civilization is a contradiction in terms, and a system of human culture whose principle is the rise of one race on the ruins of another is a farce and a lie. Yet this is the type of civilization which Jefferson Davis represented.”

@RadioFreeTom @UrbanAchievr The outcome you describe — in which ten cities always choose the president — is mathematically impossible.
@RadioFreeTom @UrbanAchievr There are approximately 87.4 million people in the nation's 10 largest metro areas. For the sake of argument, let's say that 22% of residents (the national average) are under the age of 18, so that leaves us with 68.17 million people.
@RadioFreeTom @UrbanAchievr In 2016, 61.4% of the citizen voting-age population reported casting a ballot. Assuming that's true of our sample here, that comes to 41.85 million people.

ah, charlottesville, where we build a brand new empty parking lot next to an old empty parking lot ImageImage
i like to think about these parking lots — which are down the street from a brand new parking garage with public access — whenever someone says charlottesville is “too full” to build more housing.
(something like a quarter of the land in this town is covered by surface parking)

so we’re watching AFTER HOURS and one thing i like about these smaller Scorsese films is that the camera is still buck wild
you know, if i were ripping off a scorsese film to make an origin story for the joker, i would use AFTER HOURS as my template. a guy has a comically awful night culminating in him losing his mind.
anyway the cast in this movie is absolutely stacked and it is a true delight to see john heard and catherine o’hara in this movie.

for those of you who follow my charlottesville zoning tweets, recently learned that one particularly vocal opponent of building multi-family housing only just moved here last year, having bought one of the most expensive homes in town (think low to mid 7-figures). so that’s fun.
i can’t imagine being that entitled but then i also can’t afford a multi-million dollar home
the group opposing multi-family housing — “citizens for responsible planning” — also high-handedly disparaged input from low-income housing groups as basically spam that should not count as much as their signatures. Image

once again, i’ll say, there’s nothing like watching a movie in an empty theater (about to see shang-chi, more or less by myself)
ate an edible and got a drink so if nothing else i am very relaxed
latecomers so the theater wasn’t completely empty, unfortunately. still! this was pretty good! another entry in the MCU’s Bad Dad, Warlord Dad series
