    Do you wake up with songs bouncing around in your head, hubski?

I have never woken up without one.

The song from this morning:

I've not, but I've seen a few of Herzog's documentaries. They take time for sure, but I think I'm warming up to him.

To Ireland!

I almost added a link to the movie's wikipedia page to my post :)

Only wish I could find the film somewhere online...

    The reason working class black voters aren't part of the conversation is because they did what was expected.

    If black voters want the Democrats to pay attention, stop with the blind support. Vote third party.

I may come back later to respond to your last paragraph.

Where in this piece do you read Coates "yelling at white people"?

We have Brisk Mate now though! Or at least we do in the southern US, might be worth looking for for you.

It's not the same as Club Mate obviously (which Ive only found once at this weird ass gas station by my old school) but it is still a Mate-based energy drink thing.

Happy Wednesday mk :)

Started watching at the beginning of this season, currently working my way through older episodes.

Last night's episode was pretty fucked. I thought (hoped?) there was gonna be a nice feel-good moment at the end, and then... there wasn't. ¯\(°_o)/¯

The point is that a tolerant culture can only exist when all parties tolerate each other. When someone's beliefs threaten other members of their community, those beliefs can't be tolerated.

That's not a culture of indignant sides, that's the only tolerance that can last.

NYT goes clickbait.

Interesting read, though.
