Quail chick wants to be held

I wish I could pick up chicks like that. They're pretty needy, though.

You're just jealous of the freedom I will have riding the rails with my liberal arts degree.

I do get eczema behind my ears pretty bad though. Do you think it would be unpunk to take ointments and creams with me? I also need to ask orcs if they have vegan dumpsters because I've really been trying to make a go of that.

The whole "we're going to take psychoanalysis seriously" thing in contemporary continental philosophy is baffling to me.

Like a lot of pop culture, I saw so many derivative products, parodies, and things influenced by it that by the time I actually saw the original thing it was totally worn out for me.

I've got a whole angle worked out; "Will prove the unreality of time for food" c'mon, you'd give me $5 for that.

Fuckin' oogles.

That reminds me, is orcs dead/in jail? Haven't seen her post lately. I ask because I'm getting a MA in philosophy, and knowing a hobo might help me transition into my most likely career path.

Sarah Palin: Waterboarding is how we'd baptize terrorists

Palin fails to understand both Christianity and America in the same sentence.

The acting and premise are so bad that I kept expecting it to turn into porn.

What brought up that comparison?
In a technical sense, maybe, and I certainly do know women hotter than Kari Byron. But I'd probably rather spend time with Kari than this chick, and my liking a woman as a person does affect my perception of her "physical" hotness.

People support authoritarian law enforcement because they're afraid. People are afraid because of the sort of fear-mongering that you're doing right now.

Also, jesus christ can she even touch her hands together in front of her chest?

These things are inexpensive because their manufacturers (and to some extent, consumers) do not have to pay the cost of remediation of their negative effects. It's like shitting on the floor instead of walking to the toilet because it saves time–as long as someone else cleans it up.

Avril Lavigne - Hello Kitty

I don't think it would be productive to precisely define authenticity here. It probably gets pretty fuzzy if you're trying to draw fine lines.

However, we can think of some simple examples that illustrate that authenticity exists and that we tend to value it. For instance, lets say I notice that Bronyism is popular, so even though I don't have any strong feelings about ponies, I make a nerdcore rap album about ponies in an attempt to make some money. Or, maybe I'm a suburban American white kid with a liberal arts degree and I start dressing and acting like a Rastafari and put out a reggae album about my love of Jah.

Now, both of these albums might be good albums musically, and I'm not saying that authenticity is the sole or even most important determinant of value. However, it seems intuitive that one would feel a loss in value upon finding out that the album one thought was expressing genuine beliefs/feelings were really only expressing a desire to make money, or came from a different context that was expected.

Ultimately, I think this brings up questions of semantics, and the idea that the meaning of something is determined by more than just its narrow content. See http://plato.stanford.edu/entries/content-narrow/
Capital in the 21st Century - Thomas Piketty Panel Discussion

It's interesting how little our political discourse has to do with what we know about economics, even taking more right-wing economists into account. "Mainstream" positions taken by a politician about economic issues would often be lunatic fringe positions if they were spoken by an economist.

Thanks for posting this, deadpan.

People can and do judge the Sex Pistols on their authenticity. Their manufactured status counts against them, but there are things in their favor–they were interesting in their music and performance, and they way they worked their dual nature as sell-out rebels indicates a certain irony about the co-option of dissent and the commodification of culture. Lavigne, on the other hand, is pretty uninteresting as a musician and performer, and so watered down and derivative as to be totally unremarkable in terms of showing something interesting about commodified media culture.

So, it's not hypocritical to both like the Sex Pistols and judge Avril Lavigne on the basis of her authenticity; they both have a similar flaw, but the Pistols have redeeming features that Lavigne lacks.

This looks cool.

Uh, speaking of DF... would anyone be interested in a PoeTV succession fort?
