dancefloorlandmine: Me pointing at camera (Kitchener)

An interesting blog post from a fan of black metal, neofolk, and oi! genres - all genres that seem to have a certain attraction for fascists. The author also doesn't like fascists, and doesn't want to abandon their preferred music genres to fascists. For a number of reasons, although this is one;

"We shouldn’t let nazis have nice things."

'Cede no ground to fascists'

See the brave hero do battle!

On this page, after an initial explanation of the punctuation splurge that accompanies Donald Trump, Jr.,'s name when it appears in the pages of the New Yorker, there is a video in which that publication's copy-editor makes a brave attempt to turn a couple of Trump speeches into something that might resemble language, without changing the notice. He makes, let us say, a few changes.

Brave, brave, soul.

Thanks to '99% Invisible', I found a link to this site - McMansion Hell, reviewing some of the somewhat architecturally-confused buildings that have cropped up across the US as an expression of ostentatious homebuilding.

For example ... "I feel like someone named Margaret sleeps in this bed and she has never seen the ocean nor the city ... Little House on the Prairie was not intended for use as an interior decorating guide."

A great steaming catalogue of online oops moments ...
