Well, well, La Marque actually made the news. Not for anything worth a shit, quite the opposite, really.

Take note of that woman's photo. The classic "Texas face".

6.  Because my dick has an elbow.  Nuff said.

I'm going to be puzzling over what brought on that reply all day now.

THANKS A LOT, OBAMA.

Make mine a double, thanks.

What makes it somehow worse is that he's a terrible singer.

Although now I want to lay the audio over that Lil' John video.

Even for the period it's bad, but I get the idea that it's entirely satire. Not that we should condone the actions of our past, but it's an unfortunate result of the early 20th Century.

and do it. Just remember that it has a digital copyright and you can't post it anywhere when you're done. I swear Facebook sent me a death threat.

It's not satire... there was a large and thriving racist movement at the time and they put out a lot of records. It's a recognized genre that has collectors. I know a collector and historian of white supremacist propaganda and culture.

Yeah, the youtube sidebar alone is full of similar shit.

What if they gave a war revolt and nobody came? http://www.rightwingwatch.org/content/guarantee-10-million-operation-american-spring-protesters-just-under-10-million

The source is admittedly biased, but it says their count was just over 100 people.  :lulz:

I think racism has gotten pretty fucking overt since Obama took office. I see/hear a lot of shit in public settings that would have been whispered among the yahoos ten years ago. Fuckers got bold.

Holy fuckballs. I was going to say "I can't believe the part about the steel v's saphhires" but the truth is, I can believe it.

Still a fucking amazing example of the effect, tho! You truly are blessed* to be near it.





*for a given definition of "blessed"

It's like I'm taking crazy pills.

But I AM blessed.  I get paid to dumb shit, and I ALSO get paid to make dumb people angry.  And then do more dumb shit.



Yes. There's a certain beauty in that.  :lulz: :lulz: :lulz:

NOT. DESENSITIZED. YET.

NOT. GOING. TO. TRY. TO. BE.

We are actually old enough to have experienced a past which is laughably archaic. One of the interesting things about being in school so late in life is that I'm unlearning along with learning. "LOL YOU THOUGHT WHAT? NO THAT WAS DISPROVEN IN THE 90'S, OLD LADY!"

When I was a kid, we thought that other galaxies were nebulas within our galaxy.

I grew up in a little town that got movies at least a year after they came out, so it was really cheap to get in. I remember paying ten cents for a child's ticket. Compared to these times, I might as well have been a kid in the Great Depression.

Suu, I'm not sure I ever knew why you're in KC

I'm giving talks at a convention tomorrow in Independence, the next city over.

This city does not suck, by the way. Everybody back east was going, "Ewwww, flyover state, DNT." Meanwhile, the first thing I'm told when I get off the train is, "By the way, Pretty Boy Floyd shot up this train station, let me show you the bullet holes!"  It's not what I expected in the least. I expected Jesus, and I got Hare Krishnas and gay bars in the half hour drive I saw last night. I am NOT kidding.

It's changed since I was there. I stopped en route to someplace else to visit a lady I used to know. It essentially reminded me of a giant Lake Jackson, TX. We ended up going to a free concert at a park. Gary Puckett. There is nothing quite like seeing an old man with a huge gut wrapped in a cummerbund singing "Young Girl".

NEVER. AGAIN.
