PERSPECTIVE: This stopped me in my tracks. Success in the face of adversity. An impressive feat.
FURY ROAD REDUX: Considering this is a Monochrome edition of the Dossier, this announcement couldn’t be better timed. Can’t. Even. Wait. Also, for those people who aren’t familiar with the fact that George Miller used very little CGI in the movie, check this out.
PLAY OF THE GAME: All. Time. Classic.
LONG READ OF THE WEEK: Fake it till you make it? About that…
THIS IS WHY WE’RE FAT: This is an incredible read. It shows how much we are lead around by our noses in spite of our best interests. I’m pretty sure the health impact from this far outweighed the damage done by the tobacco industry. This gives me more reason to avoid the stuff altogether.
OH THAT’S NASTY: Paging David Lynch.
MOOBS, YOLO AND BIATCH: What have we done? Speaking of words, never pick a fight with those who make them their business.
OH HELL NO! At least, I’m pretty sure hell no. Then there’s this (editor’s note: !!!!!). And yes, I got momentary queasy vertigo from it.
SHORT FILM OF THE WEEK:
Lasiurus from Marcus Alqueres on Vimeo.
EVERYTHING IN MODERATION: Mostly. (I would explode from the jitters.)
ALWAYS REMEMBER: Re-sale value should always be top of mind.
BIDING THEIR TIME: I keep telling you guys, they are going to take over the world someday.
THE ORIGIN OF FUTBOL GOAL CELEBRATIONS.
CORRUPTION: It lives and breathes throughout all spectrums of our political system. It’s broken. The idea of taking the money out of politics, elections, and lobbying is more appealing everyday. Editor’s Note II: Taking the money out of politics is gonna be an incredibly tough ask. Meanwhile, little known fact that no one cares about? Both Scott Walker and Milwaukee Mayor Tom Barrett, long ago and in much more insignificant political positions, spoke at my Eagle Scout award ceremony. They both seemed super nice. Also, little known tidbit about Milwaukee. Good grief.
DON’T SHOOT THE MESSENGER: I’m just going to leave this right here. But hey, there’s this for those who are curious.
WE KNEW THEY WERE SMART: And now, this. Also, this.
WAIT, WHAT? I am always intrigued by these kinds of stories. Because, uh, really? We are a weird species.
FOOD FOR THOUGHT? I think there are some statements in this piece that are a bit hyperbolic but this rings true: We’re creating a world of dummies. Angry dummies who feel they have the right, the authority and the need not only to comment on everything, but to make sure their voice is heard above the rest, and to drag down any opposing views through personal attacks, loud repetition and confrontation.
UGH: File this with all things pumpkin spiced. Then there’s this.
WAVE OF FAILURE? Is it time to staunch the bleeding?
‘MURICA! Here’s to Booger Hole, Big Bottom, Dick Shooter, and the rest of ’em.
CONSEQUENCES: The economic hit continues.
ARE WE A THIRLD WORLD COUNTRY OR WHAT? How come it took this long for us to get one of these? Then again, I can’t imagine it tastes very good but hey, when you’re desperate…
SMARTER THAN YOUR AVERAGE GROUP? Well done folks. Well done. We get each other.
NOT EVEN SURPRISED: You can add these guys to the list of powerful groups who don’t like competition.
