Feel like now is the time for the screenplay I wrote when I was 14, “Stranded.” The idea is: me, my friend Kate, Rider Strong, Jonathan Taylor Thomas, and Matthew Lawrence play teens whose plane crashes on a remote deserted island, who have to survive and… fall in love.

“Conservatives are terrified by the prospect of a society that truly values and decommodifies (non-fetal) life, which is why they promote an image of flesh-consuming masculinity. Unfortunately, it seems many socialists are not so different.”

I have never heard a satisfying answer to this: “What grounds our species’ right to commodify and dispossess other sentient beings? What gives our species the right to violently exploit another animal’s sexual and reproductive capacities in the service of capital?”

exclusively listening to conor oberst's cassette demos from before his voice changed for the rest of 2022 - it's the vibe

Hope District 4 Austinites will or have joined me in voting for @chitovela3  for Austin City Council! We’re gonna miss future Congressional Rep@GregCasar  but know that Vela will keep up the progressive momentum in our community. ❤️

Hour 62 of no power in central Austin: One of my neighbors walked to 7-11 a couple hours ago and found a dead woman frozen on the sidewalk. Those are the conditions here in Austin, Texas, for those inclined to make jokes about how weak or stupid we are.

I thought Elizabeth Warren would be a great President, but not enough people agree with me. It sucks but I am moving on, and donating to Bernie today (again). We can do this! Biden is an incredibly weak opponent who I’m afraid will lose badly to Trump in November.

just gonna say it - the way Alison Roman talks about Marie Kondo in this story is really fucking gross.

I will never forget or forgive Mayim Bialik’s disgusting slut-shaming victim-blaming garbage NYT editorial in the wake of the Weinstein revelations. Truly awful.

The correct venmo is @austinmutualaid  (no underscores) or, even better I have since learned!, @austinmutualaidhotels  - see below

Paul McCartney = managing editor who does all the work and annoys everyone John Lennon = writer at large who does very little actual writing but goddamnit when he does… George Harrison = freshly unionized staff writer Ringo Starr = underpaid social media guy

For those asking how to help, Venmo @$ austinmutualaid. I just did what I felt I could afford at this moment, maybe you can too?

If people really care about preventing this, they should advocate for better housing policies and income assistance, the majority of pet surrenders happen for economic reasons and not just because everyone but you is an asshole or whatever.
