We’ll miss Lou Reed. Simonson, not so much.


Pioneering rocker and songwriter Lou Reed died Sunday at the age of 71.  He is survived by spouse Laurie Anderson, and will be mourned by his peers and millions of fans. His influence was by no means limited to music.

The more information we have about what governments and corporations are up to the less we seem to trust them. Will conspiracy theories eventually destroy democracy? My money is on saving it, actually.

If you lived here you’d be home by now: Earthships, the post-apocalyptic housing of tomorrow, today!

Something big and mysterious is rising from a floating barge at a former Navy base in the middle of San Francisco Bay. Google’s fingerprints are all over it.

Why it sucks to be a chicken anywhere, and why Western Imperialist chickens are no good for fortune-telling in Mali.

Mayor Dewey Bartlett’s former chief of staff on Tulsa’s disproportionate murder rate:

It’s hard for the community to be concerned about the number of homicides when it’s gang members killing gang members. When you think about it, who’s really complaining about that?

Double dittos! Those stray bullets are a lifestyle choice ‘those people’ made by being poor and ‘ethnic’! No skin off your self-entitled, lily-white, gated-community ass, eh, Terry? They need to just pull themselves up by their zip-codes, amIright?

Yes, I rather think that Mr. Simonson is what thinking people call an “irredeemable cocksucker”, in case I was being too subtle.

Simonson was Dewey’s go-to guy before a very petty little corruption scandal finally forced him out. Who needs any other reason to change mayors?
