    Black Panther with spoilers

    I think you are mistaken about the goals of the Black Panther Party as it was originally constructed. They wanted to be left alone to be black and prosper on their own terms without the constant oppression of the white society that surrounded them. They started carrying guns so they could make it clear that they were ready to shoot back. Not to start shooting, but to shoot back rather than run around getting shot anymore. They arranged for food and clothing drives, after school reading programs, neighborhood improvement projects, classes in mediation and non-violent conflict resolution for gang members. They were trying to build Wakanda in Oakland, and the FBI created such an effective smear campaign that everyone remembers it the other way around.

    Because recursion is funny.
  3. Such an odd, verbose reshoot of Roy Batty's "Tears in Rain" speech.

    I don't know why my whole world came crashin' down, I just woke up in lonely town I opened up my eyes and much to my surprise Look at this heaven that I've found Don't need to care about tomorrow I got no pain, I got no sorrow I'm the last man on earth So tell me what it's worth Am I a beggar or a king? Got no trouble, got no time, Eternity is mine I got a whole lot of everything I can take this town And just burn it to the ground Smash every window that I see I can smoke, I can drink, I can swear, an' I can stink There ain't no one to bother me No, no Don't need to care about tomorrow I got not pain, I got no sorrow I'm the last man on earth, So tell me what it's worth Am I a beggar or a king? Got no trouble, got no time Eternity is mine I got a whole lot of everything It's all mine There's not a single soul to talk to me, But that's okay, I never liked them I'm the last man on earth And I know what it's worth I'm not a beggar, I'm a king Got no troubles, got no time, And everything is fine 'Cause I'm the king of everything It's all mine Mine, mine, mine, mine, mine, mine

    Todd Wainio (voiced by the incomparable Mark Hamill) mentions this song in his interviews a few times, so I finally looked it up. Mum and dad and Danny saw the passing out parade at Puckapunyal It was a long march from cadets The sixth battalion was the next to tour and it was me who drew the card We did Canungra and Shoalwater before we left And Townsville lined the footpaths as we marched down to the quay This clipping from the paper shows us young and strong and clean And there's me in me slouch hat with me SLR and greens God help me I was only nineteen From Vung Tau riding Chinooks to the dust at Nui Dat I'd been in and out of choppers now for months And we made our tents a home, V.B. and pinups on the lockers And an Asian orange sunset through the scrub And can you tell me, doctor, why I still can't get to sleep? And night time's just a jungle dark and a barking M.16? And what's this rash that comes and goes, can you tell me what it means? God help me I was only nineteen A four week operation, when each step can mean your last one on two legs It was a war within yourself But you wouldn't let your mates down 'til they had you dusted off So you closed your eyes and thought about somethin' else And then someone yelled out contact, and the bloke behind me swore We hooked in there for hours, then a God almighty roar And Frankie kicked a mine the day that mankind kicked the moon God help me He was goin' home in June And I can still see Frankie, drinkin' tinnies in the Grand Hotel On a thirty-six hour rec. leave in Vung Tau And I can still hear Frankie, lying screaming in the jungle 'Til the morphine came and killed the bloody row And the Anzac legends didn't mention mud and blood and tears And the stories that my father told me never seemed quite real I caught some pieces in my back that I didn't even feel God help me I was only nineteen And can you tell me, doctor, why I still can't get to sleep? And why the Channel Seven chopper chills me to my feet? And what's this rash that comes and goes Can you tell me what it means? God help me I was only nineteen

    I seem to have arrived at the staple in the Shadowrun video game "The Dead Switch." I find myself in a world of drek.

    This has my wife Fired Up. Ms. Steinem's assertion that young women were supporting Bernie to impress men was socially disastrous. Saying that women are too emotional and silly to know what's good for them isn't really feminism, is it?

    Could Bernie buy a better endorsement than Goldman Sachs CEO being publicly afraid of him? Maybe Elizabeth Warren saying "Yeah you better run! We won't hold him back for long!"

    This is wickedness of such simple genius it is almost laudable. Almost. Utterly villainous and despicable, but the credulity and stupidity of the employees is shocking to me.

    Lesser Evils 2016: America's Presidental Race

    Lessons I learned last night: 1) Trump is beatable. This may be intentional on his part. 2) Sanders is viable, and Hillary really isn't inevitable. 3) Rubio may be a viable GOP alternative to Cruz, which everyone really really wants (everyone wants an alternative to Cruz or Trump, I think. Everyone except Cruz, who I want to see birthered into the dirt.)
