Stormy won your vote for today's #JillsPin even before we knew he said he'd be arrested Tues for this crime. Joining @AliVelshi soon and @AliciaOnMSNBC thus afternoon ti discuss.

"...he goes on Fox News to tout his 'so-called' accomplishments. What you don't hear much about is how many of those bills face serious court challenges - like his 'Stop the Woke Act,' which a judge compared to the 'upside down' dimension in 'Stranger Things.' "

Why is confronting Fox "news" so critical? It's not just their efforts to undermine democracy, pump up Putin, and sow conflict and division in the public square. They're a poisonous force responsible for the break-up of marriages, families, friendships and the most basic ability for Americans talk to each other.

It recently struck me that 27 years ago there was a movie with Patrick Swayze, Wesley Snipes, and John Leguizamo playing drag queens,and if it came out today, someone would firebomb the theaters it was in. I'm not putting a sensitive warning on this picture because it's not fucking sensitive. its a movie that came out in 1995. things have moved backwards in a terrifying way.

Photo memory that just popped up. A simple shot, but hard.
The 2 yachts had to be the right distance apart and in just the right alignment; this meant constant talk on the VHF. Meanwhile I'm handholding a 200mm lens and trying to frame the image how I wanted it.
And the pesky sun was sinking fast (we were in the tropics) so only a few minutes to play with.
Pre-digital (2003) so no chimping either. I didn't even see the result till weeks later.

A central takeaway from the Dominion filings for me: Fox executives and hosts talked about regaining the "trust" of their audience — trust lost by deviating from the agreed-upon right-wing fantasy about the 2020 election.

Trust based on agreeing to lies.

"Would the former vice president’s testimony be historically unusual? Absolutely, but unprecedented developments are inevitable in the wake of unprecedented circumstances."

Steve Benen slices and dices Pence's thin legal arguments against complying with the DOJ subpeona.

One thing that's being lost in a lot of the coverage related to Scott Adams' racist rant is that he tried to present (the 40-whatever percent of) black people (who participated in this poll) as being outrageous for objecting to that phrase "it's okay to be white."

And if it's a phrase you've never heard before, maybe you take it at face value and go, "Oh, so now they don't even think it's okay for white people to exist?!"

But it's deeper than that. 1/

** Percival Everett is rewriting Huckleberry Finn from Jim's perspective **

"James, Everett’s 24th novel, has been pitched as : a harrowing and ferociously funny retelling of The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn from the enslaved Jim’s point of view"


I can almost always tell if a movie doesn't use real dinosaurs.
