"There may be no greater tribute to Steve’s success than the fact that much of the world learned of his passing on a device he invented."
BLOGGING via TYPEWRITER.: We've noticed a trend.
At the Reagan Library debate in California, attendees memorably broke into a spontaneous round of applause in support of Rick Perry’s record on the death penalty. At last week’s debate in Tampa, a handful of audience members cheered the prospect of a man without health…
Uhh, they’re Republican? Next question.
Why are we all feigning surprise that a group of people so set on polarizing this country to a breaking point with their contrarian and hypocritical views are actually supporting, out loud and proudly, these ridiculous things?
TV on the Radio bassist Gerard Smith passed away earlier today after a battle with lung cancer, according to the band’s official site. Their beautiful recent video for “Killer Crane” features photos of the group throughout the years, and it feels especially poignant right now.
This news hit me like a ton of bricks today. I nearly threw up on my work computer. To say goodbye to someone so young, who had so much left to do, is heartbreaking. Gerard wasn’t only in one of my favorite bands of all time, responsible for some of the songs that have allowed me to celebrate and commiserate, but he was also my schoolmate and a friend to my fiance and bros.
TVOTR’s show the other night at Radio City was oddly quiet, understated and I was upset about the lack of party jams. Now its pretty apparent as to why they weren’t eager to celebrate, and another creative light has left this planet. Whenever someone asks why I don’t have faith - its because we keep on having to say goodbye to people who create beauty.
Keith Olbermann out at MSNBC? NBC has said that this has nothing to do with the Comcast merger, but that sounds like utter b.s. to me.
Why would you give up the highest rated host of a show? Why would you let go the man who has essentially created your brand? And why at this incredibly important moment in time would you remove the true liberal/progressive voice on TV?
Jesus WTF! Hopefully Rachel Maddow will shed some light on this while she is on Real Time With Bill Maher tonight.
