"A band like The Strokes only comes along once in a lifetime. You should be grateful that they’ve come along in yours."

NME, 2001

In 2001, the NME was ridiculed for ending a concert review with this now oft-quoted line. But thirteen years later, I’ve got to say that they were completely and utterly right.

Protesters from across St Louis turned up and turned out for the first St Louis County Council Meeting since Mike Brown’s Death. (Part I)

The St Louis County Council wasn’t as bad as Ferguson’s Council, but still very few answers and virtually no accountability from the folks who unleashed unholy hell on the residents of Ferguson, following Brown’s murder. #staywoke #farfromover

5 Things I Learned as the Internet's Most Hated Person | Cracked.com →

wilwheaton:

Editor’s Note: A few weeks ago our message board and general inbox were bombarded with demands we address something called the “GamerGate Scandal”, posts written with the urgency and rage one would associate with, say, discovering that Chipotle burritos are made entirely from the meat of human babies. It’s apparently a big deal in some circles, so we followed the links and read the piles of data presented, and had to stop and take a deep breath just to grasp it all. “Gentlemen,” we said amid the stunned silence, “do you realize that if what they’re saying is true, then this is still the most pointless fucking bullshit anyone has ever forced us to read?”

The “scandal” turned out to be an excuse for an Internet harassment campaign against a random indie game developer who, like many such targets, was a female and a feminist.

It was all sparked by a single forum post from a jilted ex-boyfriend, but the ensuing outrage was so fierce and relentless that the story made it all the way to The New Yorker. This kind of spontaneous shitstorm is depressingly common these days, so we reached out to Zoe Quinn to see what it’s like to be the Internet’s Most Hated Person (well, for a couple of weeks, anyway). Here’s what she told us.

Urban Outfitters Offers ‘Vintage’ Faux Blood-Stained Kent State Sweatshirt | TPM
Popular clothing retailer Urban Outfitters has taken heat for selling a faux blood-stained, “vintage” sweatshirt evoking the Kent State University shootings of 1970.


The mocked-up sweatshirt appeared on the retailer’s website Sunday evening. It appeared to be a reference to the shooting of college students by the Ohio National Guard in May 1970, complete with splotches of fake blood. The company’s website never described it as a reference to the shooting, however.
The product immediately invited backlash on social media.
By Monday morning, UrbanOutfitters.com listed the item as “sold out,” and any attempt to visit the product page displayed a notification without an image of the sweatshirt.
On Monday morning Urban Outfitters responded with an apology, addressing the sweartshirt’s bloody apperance.
"The red stains are discoloration from the original shade of the shirt and the holes are from natural wear and fray,” the statement read.
