A song made for 50 year olds in 2025 to use in documentaries about the late nineties, perfect that it would have pride of place at Biden’s Inauguration

Checking out the new special editions in the Wong Kar-wai box set, they’ve given everything a green tint, they’ve messed with the aspect ratios... I dunno, I think they should have at least preserved the originals

The New Radicals will reunite for the first time in 22 years to perform "You Get What You Give" during Biden inauguration virtual parade

I knew when this song was new that it would be used as a generational pop culture touchstone for libs (like Fleetwood Mac was used by the Clintons) in the 2020s and beyond

Actions speak louder than words of course. He can say this stuff but he can't walk the walk. If he was smart he would actually be trying to get to the middle to displace Trudeau at the centre, but they will run the same boneheaded RW campaign that they already lost twice with

Trump’s big plan was to declare victory on election night because of the “red mirage” of in-person voting being counted first. The plan was in fact ruined by Fox News when their decision desk called AZ for Biden that evening, Trump went bananas and called Murdoch

I think it’s fine for WKW to mess around with all his movies. My issue is the continuing availability of their original versions.

Some dummy is going to let go of their FALLEN ANGELS blu when they buy the WKW Criterion box for the “upgrade” and I am going to buy it used

I’ve been enjoying this Axios series about the meltdown from within Trump’s campaign starting from the night they lost the election and I guess it will take us all the way to him leaving office. Three parts so far, some “pump this in my veins” anecdotes

When extremists are forced off social media platforms, law enforcement may have difficulty following them to their next mode of communication

Umm... from the sounds of it, law enforcement can just call these guys from their address books on their phones

All these nerds can't get over themselves. They think podcasts will be shut down because of Biden and the "radical left" or whatever, meanwhile there is an entire planet of people making podcasts that whatever this guy fantasizes will happen in America would have zero effect on

Quoted @EricRWeinstein

Try to shut down Independent long-form podcasting & watch what happens to your civilization.

Why? Because as insane as it sounds, It’s about all we have left of reality that isn’t socially engineered by institutions. Crazy, but that’s where we are. Podcasting IS the “loophole”.

First they came for the podcasters and I said nothing
