A 25-year-old Kanye who I like a lot.. but I think he did change.
Now that the baseball playoffs are here: my favorite cartoon from The New Yorker.
Cartoon by Charles Barsotti.
I truly wonder what it is like to be a woman, and to see this advertisement. Because you would never see “his new body made his ex cry.”
Why didn’t he get up and elbow him back?
And why is his teammate just asking the ref for a foul, as if that is what matters? Why didn’t he at least push mcgrady back? And if you really just get a foul for elbowing someone in the chest, he should throw a punch. I can’t stand this instance of Asian passivity.
My response to Stephen Fox’s architectural arrogance in the Houston Chronicle
I guess this building is “kitsch,” but for me, in the context of Houston, it seems besides the point to play the “this is good architecture, this is bad architecture” game. That kind of posturing is out of place in a city where the weather is beautiful 90% of the time. If people who use the building enjoy it, if it serves its function well, if some people who are not as architecturally cultured think it’s nice for them, then maybe in a city like Houston that is precisely what a “loosey-goosey” word like ”beauty” means.
Mitt Romney’s TV is always turned to Fox in all the pictures I’ve seen of him in his hotel room, his bus.
John Dickerson wonders why Paul Ryan needed to twist so many facts when his speech was effective enough without them.
I wonder what Paul Ryan thinks about the claims he makes in his own speech. If he and Romney only watch Fox, does he actually blame Obama for the closure of the auto plant? Or is it a deliberate manipulation of the truth? If so, is he just a brazen liar? A good actor? Or maybe he is just so convinced that Obama is the devil incarnate that it doesn’t even matter?
I hate the language of “I’m sick of playing politics.” That’s what everybody does, but if everybody is sick of it, then how come the situation is the way it is? It’s like high schoolers saying “I don’t friend people on Facebook, I only accept friend requests.” But literally everybody says this, and if that were really the case, nobody would have any friends on Facebook.
