And for 24 glorious hours, everything became Birthday. Coffee became Birthday Coffee! Hugs became Birthday Hugs! Peeing became Birthday Peeing! And all of those things were true, and are true, because no matter how old you get, no matter how many sweet childhood myths are dispelled by thoughtless adults or gossiping kids, no matter how alone or sad or busy or indifferent you are, it is still your...
Radiohead: 01 and 10 | Puddlegum →
The Dark Side of Oz of our time? Can’t believe I only just found it. Works eerily well already and I’m only up to Paranoid Android. That said, Radiohead are one of those bands to whom we’re all too eager to attach a sort of mystical, metaphysical genius. Of course OK Computer - one of the most universally acclaimed albums ever - was actually conceived as a half-album, waiting to...

Jed Bartlet would smash the climate change debate,...
Man: Governor Bartlet, when you were a member of Congress, you voted against the New England Dairy Farming Compact. That vote hurt me sir. I’m a businessman. That vote hurt me to the tune of maybe, 10 cents a gallon. I voted for you three times for Congress. I voted for you twice for Governor. And I’m here sir, and I’d like to ask you for an explanation.
Bartlet: [pause] Yeah, I screwed you on that one.
Man: I’m sorry?
Bartlet: I screwed you. You got hosed.
Man: Sir, I…
Bartlet: And not just you. A lot of my constituents. I put the hammer to farms in Concord, Salem, Laconia, and Pelham. You guys got rogered but good. Today, for the first time in history, one in five Americans living in poverty are children. One in five children live in the most abject, dangerous, hopeless, backbreaking, gut wrenching, poverty, one in five, and they’re children. If fidelity to freedom and democracy is the code of our civic religion then surely, the code of our humanity is faithful service to that unwritten commandment that says ‘We shall give our children better than we ourselves had.’ I voted against the bill ’cause I didn’t want it to be hard for people to buy milk. I stopped some money from flowing into your pocket. If that angers you, if you resent me, I completely respect that. But if you expect anything different from the President of the United States, I suggest you vote for somebody else. Thanks very much. Hope you enjoyed the chicken.
