No, no it is not. It’s a vibe. And it’s exactly what he was goin for. I don’t absolutely love it. But it’s also slick as fuck and a nice listen.

Some people have shit luck. My wife (my wiiiiiiife) has a fucked-up left shoulder from being beaten by her first stepfather and then her first husband. She ended up needing arthroscopic surgery on it; before the surgery, she ended up favoring the shoulder so much that she ended up with tendinitis in her right wrist and needed surgery on that. She has white patches on her neck and forearms from the black rain that fell after Chernobyl. She has a scar the size of a silver dollar on her chest from a cut that got infected and turned into a skin cancer that had to be treated with radiation. (The radiotherapy clinic in her hometown, Vilnius, shares a building with the venereal disease clinic.) One of her feet is fucked up from when she stepped on a sewing needle as a kid and it went all the way in; the way she compensated for it during the recovery messed up the bones enough that she needed a complete surgical reconstruction of her foot when she was 25. She got severe preeclampsia when pregnant with our first, got a C-section at 34 weeks, and nearly died in recovery because the nurse forgot to turn on the oxygen while her lungs were still full of fluid. The second pregnancy was easier but she still had to get an emergency C-section at 38 weeks because she developed intrahepatic cholestasis of pregnancy. Right now she’s waiting for preauthorization from our health insurer to have an ablation to remove a gigantic fibroid from her uterus.

Me, I’ve never even broken a bone. I once fell 20 feet from a cliff, bounced off a rock ledge, fell another 15-20 feet, landed on another ledge inches from another drop that would have proven fatal, and walked away with cuts and scratches. (Three hours later, I sprained my knee tripping over a friend’s guitar amp in his crowded dorm room.)

So yeah, I don’t think there’s any reason to conclude that Jameela Jamil has Munchausen Syndrome. Egan Morrissey is lucky that we’re in the US and not the UK, because if we were on the other side of the Pond she’d be looking at a pretty massive defamation lawsuit.

This is cool, though I think it’s pretty fucked that every candidate not named Bernie Sanders basically admitted that they’d be cool with some convention antics to deny him the nomination last night.

“Too soon?” More like “not funny”… also why would Snap and Crackle be his parents? It’s pretty apparent from the front of the cereal box that they are part of the same peer group. Unless cereal-making elves just don’t age.

If you can’t do it good, do it hard. If you’re Lizzie Warren you can clearly do it both.

tell me how it’s not hypocritical?

and tell me how him not getting behind hillary after the convention didn’t help fracture the democratic voting block?

don’t respond then, but you are, cause there is truth there, and you can’t help but stan for Bernie.

he needs to take some of the blame for 2016. that’s it, full stop.

and now that he is a front runner, he’s taking a completely different view on what needs to happen at the convention. it’s hypocritical.

exactly, it’s a different tune when he’s the front runner. whether or not you are a supporter of his, this is pure hypocrite. he has to take some responsibility for giving us trump based on his tactics in the 2016 primaries.
