I’m gonna make a playist titled “Degrees of Sadness” that will consist of all the music I listen(ed) to while writing my degree paper.

Who’s down?

Someone’s gotta do all the work to get that sugar substitute and tequila. Where the hell do you think it all comes from?

"Some white people are exceedingly generous with their advice to colored people as to how to solve the race problem in America. If these same individuals would take time to examine themselves, they would find that they key to the solution lay within. The race problem is not a one-sided affair: it has at least two sides like all other things. The white man is on the one side and the colored man on the other. Reading history back three hundred years ago, we are constrained to believe the white man has the biggest side to solve…the white man is not willing to concede manhood, nor even human rights, to the colored man. When that individual becomes willing to deal justfully and manfully with his colored neighbor, then and only then will the race problem begin to be solved."

The Advocate, August 11, 1923 as quoted in Elizabeth McLagan, A Peculiar Paradise: A History of Blacks in Oregon, 1788-1940 (Portland, Or.: Georgian Press, 1980), 129–30.

"Today, the United States is No. 1 in billionaires, No. 1 in corporate profits, No. 1 in CEO salaries, NO. 1 in childhood poverty and NO. 1 in income and wealth inequality in the industrialized world."

"If you do not want disability used against your group, start thinking about what you’re doing to reinforce ableism in your own speech. If you do not want people of color to be called feeble-minded, or women to be called weak, or LGBT people to be called freaks, or fat people to be called diseased or working-class people to be called stupid — all of which are commonly used disability slurs — then the solution isn’t to try to distance yourself from us and say, No! We are not disabled like you! The solution is to make common cause with us and say, There is nothing wrong with being disabled, and we are proud to stand with you."

Boring tech stuff below

Just had a nightmare of an experience trying to sync one of my google calendars with my phone.

Tried a shit load of approaches. Then I changed on the device the manner in which it fetched data from “fetch” to “manual.” And it now works.
