commented on Courtney Sheehan Is Now Running Northwest Film Forum
Glad to see this fantastic local institution getting back on its feet.
Welcome Courtney, and please pay no attention to the failed filmmaker @1. He's still sore because his 5-hour biography of Tesla was rejected for the Local Sightings festival.
commented on How the Continuation of the Bernie Sanders Campaign Hurts the Chances of a Democrat-Controlled Senate
This whole scenario sucks. The Democrats have been given an opportunity to win the Presidency, change the composition of the Supreme Court and switch control of at least one House of Congress. And they're throwing it away with infighting and name calling. I do blame Sanders' supporters for this, but to be fair I also blame the genetic deficiencies of progressive voters generally. We're fucking blowing it. Welcome President Trump.
commented on Fuck Everything About May Day in Seattle
Can we also fuck the many morons - including dozens of Slog commenters - who love to talk about "revolution" when it means voting by mail for a harmless old man who can't possibly win the Presidency, but get desperately uncomfortable at the slightest hint of genuine violence in the streets. You can debate the effectiveness of the whole May Day spectacle, but you can't advocate for revolution while holding on to the status quo for dear life!
