There are so many classic "bands" in this thread! They should all get together and do a reunion tour.

The Sleaze Sisters! I can't believe no one else named them!!!

"Times Square" is one of those changed-my-life kind of films. Those girls fucking ruled.

I also loved "Streets of Fire" around the same time, but I can't believe how awful Ellen Aims and the Attackers are when I watch it today.

Also: the Fabulous Stains and the Soggy Bottom Boys

We've become a country that justifies killing teenagers because of alleged shoplifting and pot smoking. Only the 2nd Amendment matters. Cops killing children, teens and adults mean nothing, because our citizens are so used to state-sanctioned executions. How do we change this? End capital punishment, for a start. We can't debate the morality of trigger-happy cops while the state is torturing prisoners (some of whom we now know to be innocent) to death.

I must be the only person on the planet who is terrified of loud noises but still LOVES the Blue Angels. They're totally, totally awesome.
Jul 8 mitten commented on Patty Murray and Senate Democrats Draft Bill to Override Hobby Lobby's Anti-Birth-Control Bullshit.
This is awesome! All the sane women legislators need to join forces on this and tear the supreme court a new one.
Jul 8 mitten commented on Frustrated By KUOW?.
I was wondering what happened to KUOW over the last year or so! I used to listen all the time and it is always national or international news now, or internet-ey style news, which I hate. What a shame. I'm a subscriber, but I hardly listen to it at all anymore.

seriously: What is he drinking and why is it in a spaghetti jar?

oh thank you for posting that Billy Squier video—it seriously fills me with joy. The 80s! It's hard to believe they were even real.
Jun 8 mitten commented on About That Hate Crime I Committed at University of Chicago.
Ages 17ish to 24ish are all about identity development and it's a messy time. I teach in a college, and 90% of my students are trying to figure existential lifeshit out—all while passing classes and figuring out what to do as a career. Some of them are more rational and polite about their ennui than others. The highly sensitive student who gave Dan shit is going through a major transitional stage, compounded by discovery of gender identification (or lack of). These students don't have a lot to go on and are just figuring out their way. Unfortunately, they are doing it in a very rude and antisocial way. But that's sometimes what we get with college students. They don't have enough life experience yet to understand that being aggressive and demanding doesn't equate with maturity and leadership.
Jun 6 mitten commented on Open Carry + Stand Your Ground = Perpetual Violence Machine.
As Sarah Silverman has noted, this is about the right for white guys to tote around semiautomatic weapons. Imagine the showdown if a group of black men walked into the same restaurant carrying machine guns.
