My blog has been spammed. The ‘fixes’ aren’t working. Think I’m done with tumblr.
I still listen to good music, though. The Decemberists, Dirty Projectors, Nouvelle Vague, Beirut, Belle and Sebastian, Tears for Fears. I listen to all of them—in my house. When I leave my house though, I usually don’t bother bringing my iPod and instead I just put on the radio in my car and kind of just listen to whatever’s popular—but I do it ironically. You should have seen how people looked at me the other day when I was parking my Focus blasting that new Linkin Park song from the Transformers soundtrack. They totally didn’t get it. From “You look at me like you’ve never seen a neo-hipster before”. So much funny over at McSweeney’s here.
Ultimately, however, our personal moments of distress won’t matter much unless our government intervenes with occasional mentions of climate change in important speeches, or by passing nonbinding legislation on the subject. I implore you: Spend a couple minutes each year imagining yourself writing impassioned letters to your elected representatives demanding a federal cap on emissions.
The Onion: We Need To Do More When It Comes To Having Brief, Panicked Thoughts About Climate Change (here). This would be (even) funnier if it weren’t quite so true…
