I guess the old iTunes just reminded me too much of using iTunes on Windows, which blew great steaming goat balls.
Why exactly does the new iTunes suck? Because I’ve been using it and actually rather liking it. Maybe it’s just that I’m using it on a Mac as
GodSteve Jobs intended, but it’s pretty nice for me.
*mournful sigh* I’d just like to note, for the record, that we aren’t all insane here in Georgia.
Not to stir up trouble or anything, but I’m annoyed by the way some people here have been talking, as though the Only True Progressives are the ones who constantly advocate for the One True Progressive Policy. Or that people like me who defend Obamacare are somehow callous monsters who don’t care about helping others. I would love to have single payer, or even just a public option. But with the politics we have right now, that’s just not possible. And I’ll be damned if I let perfectionists do away with what we’ve managed to get for the sake of a dream.
I also resent the implication that just because I’m not constantly shouting OMG DRONES IZ EVUL at the top of my lungs, means I don’t care about anyone outside of my small circle. The way we are using drones troubles me, but I don’t see it as the most evil thing in the world. I think there are much bigger issues, but that does not mean I approve of the way President Obama is using drones. Just because I do not have the exact same priorities and positions as you does not make me evil.
How lovely of you. I’m sure your parents are proud of how you troll the Internet and pick on other people for no damn reason. I don’t need career advice from dickheads who only care about “teh lulz”. Besides, for all I know, you’re a 15-year-old trolling from your parents’ basement. So, again, I would like for you to go fuck yourself with a napalm-soaked piece of wood.
You’re making an argument for something that, in reality, will never help me, because there’s no fucking way single payer will pass. Also, I prefer not to be referred to as “this kid”, because it’s really fucking condescending.
Because it’s just so easy to find a job these days. And not just any job, but a job that pays enough to find a separate place to live.
Also, I live with my parent, thank you very much, because my mother died from breast cancer about two years ago. So allow me to be a bit more explicit: go fuck yourself, you brain-rotted asshole. You’re being a snarky Internet dude about this, and we’re talking about real people, with real consequences. Fuck you and the fucking horse you fucking rode in on.
Speaking as someone who can’t find any sort of work and who only has his medicine covered by my dad’s insurance *because* of the ACA, I would like to invite you, in the words of our inimitable bloghost, to eat a bag of salted dicks.
To paraphrase Clark Gable, frankly, my dear, I don’t give a shit. If you care so much about it, fine, but given the amount that Dubya lied during his time, this is small potatoes.
Perhaps you’ve heard of something called “the fog of war”? If you were remotely determined to be fair to President Obama, you might concede that he could have made a mistake, rather than deliberately lying. But I doubt conservative trolls like you are interested in being fair.
I’ve recently read a fun piece of “dragon fantasy”, which I enjoyed very much. It’s called Seraphina, and it’s a debut novel by an author named Rachel Hartman. In a world where dragons can take on human forms, a young musician whose mother was a dragon has to reconcile her different heritages. I really can’t wait for the next book in the series. I also enjoyed John Scalzi’s Redshirts, which has a nice healthy dose of meta, but it’s not just an exercise in satirizing Star Trek. As for nonfiction, I haven’t read as much of that, recently, but I recommend Quiet by Susan Cain, which is a book about introversion, and how introverts (like yours truly) can manage a world that doesn’t always favor them.
Oh, and I’d like to put in a good word for Tamora Pierce’s books. She’s a great author, even for someone outside of her target audience (like yours truly).
I’m pretty sure they meant that they want someone who will approach tasks with velociraptors. And if I mention velociraptors, I’m pretty sure that Intertubes law requires me to link to this.
