"Honestly, I was surprised that that video was that shocking because we don't see anything: We don't see any pubes hair, we don't see any tits almost, they don't do anything wrong. We're all here on Earth because our parents they make sex, right? So, I don't get it. I mean, porn for me is when people are killing each other. You go to see a movie, we see blood everywhere, but we never see a dick or a pair of tits. We are here because people fuck, so, we should be proud of the fucking thing."- Jean-Baptiste Mondino

blind threats.

a moment of clarity. 

words. 

"...For years, ideological extremism fuelled by organized money has degraded our political system, and that brings troubles as serious and lasting as external threats—which are serious enough, and all the harder to confront intelligently in an atmosphere like the one that prevails in Washington. These internal forces have steadily weakened the defenses of the body politic, leaving a demoralized federal work force, a routinization of poor working conditions and inadequate services, a strategy of total war on every issue that comes before Congress, and a national government that is the last place you’d look to for solutions to the country’s most corrosive problems.

...McConnell appears to be looking for an escape from his own trap. So are some of the leading Republican Presidential contenders. But it won’t be easy for even the most moderate of them to find a way out of their party’s forty-year journey into the badlands of the extreme right. They’ve found power there for so long, in so many elections, that when the time comes the riders might discover that their horses are unwilling to turn back. You can’t spend decades encouraging irrationality and ignorance, then declare a return to sanity when it’s convenient. The price lasts longer than an election cycle."

o-town.

(1) I like Blur.

(2) But I liked Oasis more.

(3) I own all of their albums. (except one)

(4) He mentions the (pretty decent) Oasis albums that few people cared for (except the five of us who were still listening to Oasis after Be Here Now).

(5) No country for Be Here Now.

(6) And, a year or so back I accidentally threw out my used $9 copy of What's the Story, Morning Glory purchased in high school. (Just the disc. Not the album art/cd booklet, somehow) Still pretty upset about that.

 words. 

"last night’s episode on black fatherhood was the first time the show fully managed to distinguish itself from the shows that inspired it. This time, Wilmore skipped the opening monologue to dive directly into this fraught issue with his panel of guests: Common, New York Times columnist Charles Blow, Center for Urban Families founder Joe Jones, and Nightly Show contributor and comedian Mike Yard. The result was an episode that balanced humor and seriousness deftly, and offered an engaging discussion rarely heard on a major TV network.

...Wilmore volleyed the conversation effortlessly, and because the subject matter was so deeply personal to him and his guests, the scene was intimate and natural, almost like you were dropping in on a conversation you’d hear on the street, or at a dinner party. Not every episode will be like that, of course, (nor should it be, since a little genuine tension never hurt a panel discussion). But this kind of dynamic is what makes The Nightly Show feel like something we've rarely seen on TV."
