I no longer enjoy Salvador Dali after learning about what a bag of shit he was to his friends. Plenty of other artists who are shit bags I'm indifferent to their actions. There's no logic to this for me. Lots of people will say that you can't enjoy art made by bad people and I assume they live lives devoid of pleasure
It was hard to find an article about this because she's in a lot more trouble for comparing homosexuality to bestiality
You’re in a desert walking along in the sand when all of the sudden you look down, and you see a tortoise, it’s crawling toward you. You reach down, you flip the tortoise over on its back. The tortoise lays on its back, its belly baking in the hot sun, beating its legs trying to turn itself over, but it can’t, not without your help. But you’re not helping. Why is that?
Death of the author and all that. I'll probably still listen to his stuff and torrent songs. Maybe.
But I'm actually a huge fan of one of the artists quoted in the piece: Phoebe Bridgers. I thought the bad guy from a lot of her songs was Conor Oberst but apparently it was Ryan Adams. I can't really explain why I feel differently about Ryan Adams than Jimi Hendrix or John Lennon but I just don't see myself enjoying Adams songs for the foreseeable future
Trump plans to declare national emergency to appease his base because he will never get his way. Even though he turned down money for the wall in exchange for permanent DACA solution. He is truly a master of deal artistry. If a republican challenged Trump in 2020 and then won the election I would be momentarily relieved just to have this bullshit be over
John Cusack blocked me on Twitter at some point which is weird. I'm not a prolific tweeter.
I went to the dentist for the first time in a decade. No cavities. Floss daily and quit smoking. I've been too depressed to brush my teeth for days during that decade so I wasn't sure that didn't do severe damage.
Odds are I have a new, slightly less shitty, job.
TERFs are fucking weird, man. Their argument seems to be that they know better than the medical community. As far as I can tell they think effeminate young boys and lesbian girls are having unwanted gender reassignment. There's also the stuff about men going into women's restrooms like the Republicans. The "for the children" angle is particularly weird because it's such a creative fantasy.
There might be fewer ancaps if weed and DMT were legal. A lot of these people seem to go that route because they want to get high without the threat of prosecution
I have several high value reddit accounts then. And no way to monetize them that I know of
