Mar 12 Andrew Cole commented on Sixth Woman in Recent Months to Leave Seattle Times Newsroom.
Did I miss a Slog post about Goldy leaving? I get the feeling it was a little fraught, but, jesus, I know more about the turnover at the Times than I do here. Not even a blip?
Jan 27 Andrew Cole commented on How Far Behind Schedule Is the Deep-Bore Tunnel?.
This isn't apropos of anything, but can I just say that seeing "Macklemore and Ryan Lewis Fan" in the corner of Will in Seattle's box has really put a lot of things in context for me.
Jan 16 Andrew Cole commented on Jezebel Will Pay You $10,000 To Prove Lena Dunham's Body Is Actually Disgusting.
@8,5, et al: Her arm is missing in the image that leads off the article. I admit I'm a little curious as to what could have *possibly* been so horrific with it that it needed to be removed entirely. Is it a tentacle? A go-bot? Possibly the rest of the cast of Girls, chained together Human-Centipede-style and shrunk down to arm-length?

I think Jez's point is more that you expect a certain level of artifice when you're looking at Lady Gaga or Gweneth Paltrow -- image manipulation is something they either embrace or are neutral about, even if it's still a disturbing and uncomfortable practice. Dunham's politics regarding body image are all strongly opposed to this kind of trickery, though, so shrinking her down or hacking her arm off to squeeze it into Vogue's style guide is like bleaching a picture of Huey Newton to make him look less black. It's overtly political.

Nov 6, 2013 Andrew Cole commented on Wherefore Art Thou, Portlandia?.
All I think when I look at the title at the top of this Slog story is: Why the fuck would you misuse 'wherefore', Constant?

Suggested alternate title: O Portland, Where Art Thou?

@9, yeah, there's on in San Francisco now, too. Which is pretty hilly, too.
Sep 12, 2013 Andrew Cole commented on Pussy Riot '93.
I'd maybe add Salt-N-Pepa's Very Necessary to that list, too.

Thank you, @6. That's very helpful!
May 29, 2013 Andrew Cole commented on Sen. Mike Carrell, RIP.
Wait, now I'm confused. Does this make the senate a 50/50 split, or is there still one more D~R than the Democrats have?
