The landscape is definitely changing. It's quiet, but something does seem to be happening. At the very least, Red shaming stopped being an effective firewall while no one was paying attention.

Lee Carter sang Solidarity Forever to celebrate victory. The Democrats are still busy rending themselves apart, and that opens the door to the left hijacking more of their ballot lines.

election night

Locally, two of the three city council candidates I supported won. The one I was most excited about managed to net herself a four year term. Went from being the fourth place vote getter in the primary to second in the general.

Less locally?

    I say all of this to say that while I have not identified as a democratic socialist in the past, I would be honored to have the support of the Pittsburgh Chapter of the Democratic Socialists of America. To me, being a socialist means acknowledging, confronting, and demanding reparations for social inequalities in no uncertain terms.

The district judge candidate who wrote that?

Fucking won.

Lee Carter, one of the people politico used for their "Could America’s Socialists Become the Tea Party of the Left?" bit?

Fucking won.

It's not all riding coat tails of the Democratic party either. Ginger Jentzen straight up ran on the Socialist Alternative ballot line and did pretty damn well.

I don't run, but I do venture into the local running shops from time to time.

They are aggressively nice people. I'd absolutely join their group runs if that was my thing.

I confess, I tend to check up on all ya'll's profile pages whenever I notice that string.

Apparently you can use an xbox Kinect as a cheap 3d scanner.

I liked them, but wasn't a huge fan before the show.

Seeing them live was a definite oh, now I get it moment.

Spotify really doesn't do them justice. It's kinda like what I've imagined Pfunk shows being like. George Clinton & co. have played here twice in the past five years and we've missed them both times because of family.

If they swing through a third time, we won't be missing them.

I know a lady who was giving out coffee mugs. She'd just moved and discovered she didn't have enough counter space.... I'm not sure if they were an optional extra or mandatory in lou of candy.

I'll probably end up going that route for some of this. :|

I hate buying shit online. Especially when it gets shipped via my work.

I've seen so many boxes of fasteners get destroyed during shipping. Hardly anyone packages them stout enough.

As it is, I've already got an air shipment that's Late By Day because it sat for 20~ish hours in our flagship facility thanks to "operational conditions". My 1 meter aluminum extrusions are coming in a different shipment via fucking ground service, so I give it 50/50 odds that they're bent.

On the other hand, I had one package come via amazon's private vehicle delivery drivers. Took less than six hours to reach me, shipping was free, the box was pristine, and the lady was stressed as fuck.

I was being literal. :)

By the end of the show, an entire bottle of red wine had been emptied onto the crowd.
