HOLD ON, WE'RE GOING HOME Hey remember two years ago when some writer accused Taylor Swift of dog-whistling at white supremacists and secretly indoctrinating young girls into the cult of Trump: http://popfront.us/2017/09/swiftly-to-the-alt-right-taylor-subtly-get-the-lower-case-kkk-in-formation/ Time feels like dog years now I swear to God

I remember reading in the New Yorker about a techbro health food startup that mails you a packet of essential vitamins and minerals you mix with water and drink as a smoothie. It was called Soylent, and I'm not joking.

Same: The thing I took issue how he frames it. "It's messed up that it's still controversial to be gay and a rapper, and that a guy like Lil Nas X now has to worry about coming out detracting from his #1 song and all his success." > "Lil Nas X probably shouldn't have come out." All I'll add is that it wouldn't surprise me at all to learn Young Thug has his own identity issues, even if he is straight, and that's partly why he framed it and phrased it the way he did.

That's just a meme. It's the language of boomers. That's what surprised me most about it.

Race and racism certainly played a factor in it taking so long to prosecute R. Kelly, because his victims were mostly black girls and therefore racistly low on Chicago P.D.'s list of priorities. The Epstein case is different. Why it got buried in the first place says a lot about money, power, and friends in high places. Why it's getting wall-to-wall coverage now is because it involves Donald Trump and Bill Clinton. Fox puts "Clinton" in their headline; MSNBC puts "Acosta" in theirs. Everybody clicks; everybody wins. I don't think race has anything to do with it.

Explaining cappie's comments and how they have anything to do with the article is one of those word games only really smart people can play, like anagrams or doing sentence diagrams of Proust.

"Jelmore" is interesting and pretty and begging for a Björk remix.

I’m back and feeling great fam RE: mental illness, don’t try to handle it on your own. Don’t hide things from people. Don’t isolate yourself. That’s when it gets bad. Do admit when you need help. Do reach out to someone who can help if you have even a passing thought of doing something stupid. Do let family and friends you trust know what’s going on. Do work hard and kick your own ass to get better. Do take your meds. Sorry 4 no meme this week. What’s everybody listening to tonight?
