So, this most recent shooting in Lafayette.
The article I wrote for Rebel News on Dylann Roof hasn't been published yet, but when it is...well, I can't say I didn't call it. I was speaking with one of the editors about it, and the recent shooting basically reconfirms the entire point I had been making. The latest shooter shows sympathy with the Golden Dawn and David Duke, thinks the USA is being ruined by a conspiracy of Jews and Blacks and was radicalized online.
I'm really looking forward to reading that article, Cain
Me too - would not be opposed to knowing when to look for it.
Thanks, both of you. Theu should be available whenever Rebel News actually launches....which should be soon. Ish.
"The guy was just some lame who wasn't affiliated with the movement in any way," one member of the Aryan Circle, another white supremacist prison gang, told VICE. "What he did was senseless and only gives the media more reason to portray blacks as victims."
"That kid better clique up quick," the Aryan Circle member added. "He couldn't join us. We don't accept lames, but one of these gangs will accept it."
I've noticed that Monkey has gotten a lot better at reading since I started letting him play Skyrim a lot and made him stop making new characters. He reads out loud, and he can get through most of the words and spells out those he doesn't so I can help him out. It gave me the warm fuzzies this week when he got through a main plot point conversation and didn't pick any options willy-nilly; he read at least one before picking it, and some of those there were shorter options.

Used GTA San Andreas and Samurai Warriors 2 to help teach his son to read.
Didn't make it into the internship. They had us writing code for a week in a classroom with our fellow candidates.
But that's okay, that was some fierce competition and I made some friends. I'm just going to make them regret passing me over by writing some killer code and getting hired on at another company.
I need a montage.
Aw! Bummer. YOU WILL OVERCOME.
I think it has to do with many airports looking very similar so we get attached to the parts that make it unique.
The carpet is one of the first indications that you've arrived in Portland when you get off the plane, so for Portlanders returning from many flights at nondescript first world airports, there has to be a Pavlovian link with seeing the carpet and the feeling of returning to your home town.
It also is characteristic of the design language of the late 80's and early 90's, and echoes the visuals of 90's MAX trains and buses. So this powerful sense of place wasn't just based on it being an initial cue as you entered the airport (though I'd argue that is a major part of its appeal), but also a motif that rhymed off of the larger public experience in Portland.
Throw in the cognitive dissonance of jet travel wrecking all of Portlander's efforts at being sustainable and carbon neutral and I think you have a very emotionally charged symbol. It's a 3-hit combo right in the feels. So a sense of home, nostalgia, and complex feelings surrounding sustainability are all wrapped up in a goofy carpet design.
Luckily, the new carpet is equally absolutely hideous, so the legacy can carry on.
I would replace "died" with "ended".
Is there somewhere we can make our own?
