A Funky Facebook Rap dedicated to Hal Phillips

Please watch this.

"Magenta Is Not A Colour" by Rian Hughes, from Vertigo’s Magenta anthology.

All it takes for me to like a comic is a bunch of philosophical meandering by characters I want to be at the same party as. Vertigo used to publish more of that. Nice to see them doing it again, if only for eight pages.

Yesterday: “Leave Me Alone” by Michael Jackson. Today: a really good Pulp B-side. Tomorrow: an avant-garde composition that I do not understand.

I was going to make a list of my top 10 Elvis Costello songs in no particular order. Then it was going to be a top 20 list. Then there were still too many, and I hate comparing and ranking things, and I can handle making a list like that if I have 18 no-brainers and have to throw in another two, but not if I have like 46 no-brainers and have to compare and judge and exclude. It literally gives me a headache. So I gave up. The soundtrack to all this was “Hollow Bones” by the Wu-Tang Clan.

i’ve been thinking about this all day

I had a dream yesterday morning in which, long story short, I encountered higher-dimensional beings that I knew could give me wise advice. I tried to think of a question for them that felt profound, but also useful. The first thing to pop in my head was: “How can I be happy?” Their response was: “Remember that you already are. And remember that it’s easy.”

NYPD cops beat man during solidarity protest for Michael Brown in East Village; video
August 21, 2014

NYPD cops beat a man Wednesday night during a solidarity protest for Michael Brown, a video shows, although the circumstances surrounding the attack remained unclear early Thursday.

The 45-second video begins after police officers and the man have started arguing in the middle of a dark street in the East Village. It was not apparent what prompted officers to react so forcefully.

When asked for a comment on the video, police said the man was taken into custody on E. 10th St. near Ave. D, issued a C-summons for disorderly conduct and then released. They described his actions before the violent encounter as “tumultuous behavior.”

Demonstrators marched through the Lower East Side and in Union Square over the death of Brown, the unarmed black teen gunned down by a white cop in Ferguson, Mo., on Aug. 9. Brown’s killing followed the July 17 death of Eric Garner, 43, who was put in a chokehold by cops in Staten Island.

The Wednesday night video, taken from a BlackBerry and posted on Facebook, shows officers punching and tackling a man to the ground while protesters stand around shouting at the cops.

"Don’t shoot him! Don’t shoot him!" one woman yells as the melee begins.

"Yo, you knocked him out," another man shouts as a swarm of officers arrive at the scene.

A crowd of protesters surrounded the officers chanting “Hands up, don’t shoot,” which has become the motto for Brown protests around the country.

The clip ends with a group yelling, “Cops, pigs, murders,” at the responding officers.

New York Governor Candidate Arrested, Jailed for Recording the Aggressive Arrest of a Bronx Man
Only days after the NYPD sent out a city-wide memo to officers reminding them that the recording of their activity is allowed, Randy Credico, an upcoming candidate for New York Governor, was arrested, handcuffed and put in jail for recording the aggressive arresting of a man by two officers in street clothes.
Credico, who has been very vocal against NYC’s ‘stop-and-frisk’ policy, first started recording the situation after he noticed two men – not clothed in NYPD attire and not wearing badges, mind you – aggressively stopping an elderly black male in the Bronx.
As for how it went down after that, Photography Is Not a Crime shared a snippet of conversation from a call Credico had with Fred Dicker, a NYC radio host, while still in a Bronx holding cell

I voted for Randy Credico for mayor this year and plan to vote for him for governor this year, and I’m proud to be on the side of someone who exposes the corrupt, violent practices of the police force, rather than the side of oppression.
