Man, this video is such a joy! Jack White is already deep in my brain because he's putting out my favorite unreleased Prince album EVER as a limited release, and here's Adam revealing that he's also an *upholsterer*? What's better than people making things with heart? twitter.com/donttrythis/st…
Re: #LRT Make no mistake, the GOP is absolutely intending on wiping the Democratic party off the map. There's a power grab happening, and the GOP is the only one not pretending there isn't.

Looks like the Twin Cities Reader (1977-1997) and City Pages (1981-2018) print archives are now accessible and searchable through startribune.newspapers.com. This is an amazing resource for local music history. Here's a little ad that ran in the Reader in October '78.

This alarming threat to expression on the web is both the result of a judiciary selected for their technical illiteracy as well as the application of the Internet, at the direct expense of the open web. twitter.com/b_fung/status/…
Those reports in conservative outlets that Alito had to take shelter in an undisclosed location seem to stem from @ishapiro comments on a Fox interview. Now he tells Politico he doesn't remember where he heard that. @joshgerstein @AnthonyAdragna: politico.com/minutes/congre…

Every couple of weeks for about 20 years now, I think about blowing up my online presence, at the very least my presence on social media sites like this one. These are always the questions that drive the reckoning. I hope Jason finds the answers that work for him.

Selling mangos is a gateway to explosive fuel on the subway system, but cops lying about teenagers and framing them for attempted murder is heroism? This sucks real bad. twitter.com/StvBurns/statu…
If you could make an entire website all by yourself, what would you dream of making?
Nice piece from @mijustin, talking about a "webmaster". For those who weren't around for the turn-of-the-century internet, it was pretty great to be able to just make a webpage yourself. You still can! justinjackson.ca/webmaster/
The overall SWAT rate regarding these issues is greatly elevated, and the precautions are simple. Honestly, if you're at all involved in reproductive rights or abortion access issues, you should also call. Or if you regularly make people mad online!

In which the world's richest man interacts with a Pizzagate guy to lie about Twitter having a "strong left wing bias" because a woman tweeted something that violated Twitter's rules (and DID get her suspended) before she eventually just deleted her whole account.

To reach “X,” this would have to not only change perceived value of using Twitter daily (away from power users who likely would pay) by changing the inherent value of Twitter, which requires rethinking vital parts of Twitter’s structure and current makeup. What are those ideas?

The MTA's obsession with fare evasion has led them to make passengers open bus doors instead of opening them automatically at bus stops. It's inane stuff like this that will depress ridership. nypost.com/2022/05/08/mta…

I used to work at an abortion clinic. After one of our clinics was burned and moved to a trailer and another had an acid attack, we had to sue the sheriff’s department & move across the street from sheriff dept because they wouldn’t come when we called about threats or attacks. twitter.com/rtraister/stat…

Abortion pills prescribed via telehealth appts have been banned, NOT PLAN B. While this ban is also terrible, we want to stop the spread of misinformation, &more importantly, ensure TN folks seeking Plan B know they will not be criminalized.

NYC is on track to have the deadliest year for pedestrians ever, but don’t worry the groups of 12 cops playing candy crush by the subway entrances will continue to keep us all safe. For real though do any local politicians have real solutions I can help boost?
