I got a spinach salad from the deli next door. See, I've been getting their veggie sandwich 3 days a week for the last two years, and it was so so good. But they started putting green olives on it recently, which makes it gross. Just olive juice everywhere. So ask for it without olives, right? BUT I was ALREADY getting it on a different bread and with a different sauce than it normally comes with, and I'm just too embarrassed to add another special substitution to the order. So... a salad.

(Also: I hope that the above comment comes off as playful. I'm don't disagree with Gabe in either his post from earlier this week nor his response today. But I was looking for an interesting way to add to the discussion. It seemed like the idea of being overly sensitive or too careful with something like this dance might be an interesting angle for folks to talk about. I tried to be pretty fair and cool about it, but maybe not!)(No sarcasto! Honestly, maybe not!)

Hi, I'm the "Kid Gloves" person! You'll see that Gabe was correct: very white!

I mean, it would be easy to write a similar article about the way in which some popular, contemporary "country" music (say, Taylor Swift or something) bears little resemblance to its roots, which has strong cultural and historical connections with low income white people. And I mean... that seems OK?

February 20, 2013 on Actual Residents Of Harlem Respond To “Harlem Shake” Meme
I don't know. While it's always good to be careful and thoughtful in situations like this, it seems like the joke in the Harlem Shake video(s) is the editing, the smashcut between serious and silly. It's not "let's make fun of how black people dance." I'm willing to be wrong here, but sometimes I wonder if we don't use kids gloves with non-white cultures. I mean, with very narrow exceptions, culture shouldn't be proprietary. It's okay that meanings change and new iterations don't fully honor the original sources.

"I don't care if they're Irish, I don't care if they're Italian, I don't care if they're Polish, [because all those make them white]."

Maybe! I also kind the tone of most "serious" graphic novels to be off-putting. Also, guys: Is there a way to NOT be auto logged out of VG every time I log into Facebook?

Meh. REAL LIFE love is forsaking your dreams and taking a job you hate so her parents will stop saying you're going nowhere and don't deserve her. I like (500) Days of Summer.

I like to get drunk and do exactly this, because even though my ex-wife is the manager at Bed Bath and Beyond this is America and she can't take my YouTube videos away from me like she took my car.

Also: I'm surprised that so many commenters were offended. This show doesn't even seem to TRY to reflect or comment on real life, ever. It dealt with religion today the same way it deals with it's other "themes": bullying, family, homophobia, etc. It's insights on the personal and social aspects of religious experience were about as interesting and important as it's insights on Fitting In. How are we surprised by this, and who cares? The plots of these episodes are just some ham-fisted, stumbling scenes meant to ferry us from one song to the next. And the songs are great!
