Learning that Sammy Hagar recorded an Otis Redding cover is the stuff morbid curiosity is made of, but I won’t give in.Sad we lost original Boston drummer Sib Hashian, but glad he went out doing his thing. RIP. https://t.co/Fak3W9aqGnIn my dream, there were private subway cars about ⅕ the size of a regular subway car. Antithetical to the subway ethos but still super cute.

In honor of the forthcoming release of Trainspotting 2, I reevaluated Underworld’s “Born Slippy.” Still sucks.Hi. I share this song because I like it. It has no relevance to the current federal healthcare and budget proposals. https://t.co/AGxc9EfzMF

@fanelli @hoyboy Don’t forget Iron Maiden! Also, dual leads are becoming a staple in what little recording I do. https://t.co/SQZRr7U8E6 @fanelli @hoyboy I would like to congratulate you both. @fanelli If only every band had an MIT grad who could write great hooks, wail on the guitar, and record it all in a studio he built himself. @fanelli The band?

Just re-upped my Letterboxd membership. I say this a lot, but if you love movies and you’re not using @letterboxd, you’re missing out.They’re a problem, to be sure, and a uniquely difficult one. But I hesitate to conflate 4chan’s actual scope with its own self-serving myth.For all the noise they’re able to make on Twitter and Reddit outside their self-selecting cesspools, it’s not like Pepe is a household name.Are their numbers knowable? As a collective defined by nihilism, do they even vote? Is their influence graded on an internet curve?But the inherent slipperiness of 4chan and similar communities makes it hard to say just how influential they are in this political moment.4chan is worth trying to understand, and this essay, though muddy in places, is as good an analysis as I’ve seen. https://t.co/FSwtqFIBgy
