The video doesn’t starts with the security guards and the gay couple getting acquainted. There’s only so much you can get out of a video like this, but to my eye it seems to confirm Aune and Jones’ version of the incident. The couple is not a threat; they remain seated until the takedown; they … [Read more…]
One of the things I love about MoF is that we’re a pretty small community and don’t attract a lot of trolls. This is not to say we never attract trolls, but when we do, it’s a surprise. There are many sites whose comments I simply don’t read because I don’t want to deal with … [Read more…]
Here’s a little Japanese cultural lesson I put together for you, dear viewer. And it’s only $1.50 for a three pack!
It’s got it all: atheism, spirituality, god, scifi, and good music!! Hulu’s got the first four eps up right now (and it doesn’t keep them forever), so go catch up. It’s too smart and too well written to stay on the air for long. It’s the story of Kings David and Saul transposed into a … [Read more…]
When Galen was here a couple of months ago, I brushed the dust off of my guitar, and she played Leonard Cohen’s Hallelujah while Amy and I sang along. I had heard about the song via kottke a year earlier, when he linked to the “It Doesn’t Matter Which You Heard”: the Curious Cultural Journey … [Read more…]
For my fellow Japanophiles. How do you think Americans would react to sudden pretend shootings and slashings?
I’ve been wanting to share something from this genre with you guys, but it’s hard to find the vids online. This is Eurobeat, which is often Italians singing in English for a Japanese market. Quite the international trip—and it is a trip, in all sense of the word. Night of Fire is one of the … [Read more…]
(Totally not fucking safe for fucking work at all, unless you work at a place that’s like fucking awesome.)I’ve been waiting for these to come out–it didn’t take long at all! If you find better versions (as I’m sure they’ll soon appear), let us know! Technorati Tags: obama, swearing
And watch this vid. An MoF favorite singer and an MoF favorite cause: Regina Spektor and No On H8. Do this before V day and enjoy your partnership on Valentine’s Day guilt-free (and full of hope). Let’s dedicate this Valentine’s Day to love.
My husband and I don’t have any one “our” song, but anything by Burlap to Cashmere, Train or Vertical Horizon reminds me of him. This is one that especially reminds me of when we first met & fell in love. What are your favorite love songs (not necessarily songs about love but songs that remind … [Read more…]
(no, not that one) “That says, ‘oh, Love Me Dead!’” or, A Feminist Critique of Ludo’s “Love Me Dead” Today’s music brought to you courtesy of DH *ahem* who picked it up from a House commercial. Which is funny, since I watch TV & he doesn’t and the song totally escaped my notice. I’ve had … [Read more…]
I did not know anything about Credence Clearwater Revival (or “CCR” as they are affectionately known) until I took a road trip a few years ago with my sister. We had, as the only CDs that were acceptable to all members of the van (my sister, her husband, myself, and their 4 children), two CCR … [Read more…]
