Some things I listened to this week:
I hope the kids are also being taught the strong racial dimensions of all that. "Convict leasing" was really an extension of slavery by another name.
The coveted Golden Fez. Last I heard, Raincrow was taking it to be polished.

I think she's talented but inconsistent. (And she should really stay off Twitter.) Will be curious to see how she holds up. I hope the album's good.

200-plus posts! I don't have any desire to wade into this thread, but I am happy to see the Blab is still capable of generating a full-on art/culture donnybrook. Even without me and Rev. Jack.
And I saw on Facebook yesterday that it was the anniversary of the release of the first Ramones album. (FWIW Hayley Williams also claims to be listening to the Ramones a lot.)
