    I’ll take three. Oh, and throw in a few vats of that milk blood stuff and a Verizon 20-year contract while you’re at it.

    Super. Thanks.

    The “David site” goes into such detail about how capable he is of recognizing the emotions of others…I’m awaiting a tedious response from the Asperger’s lobby.

    I am awaiting David Bowie to show up and ask Fox to pay him some likeness rights! Also, seriously, if androids are ever part of fucking TWO YEAR CONTRACTS, then I will settle on the pay as you go Androids. Sure they won’t be as flashy but if they try to kill me or mine, or decide to chase people around town in the nude. I can just sell it used on Amazon and get a slightly newer model without being beholden to freaking Verizon or ATT and their damn flashy Androids and GOD DAMN TWO YEAR CONTRACTS!

“Because of my relative candor on Twitter regarding why I quit my day job, my DMs have overflowed with similar stories from colleagues around the globe. These peeks behind the curtains of film festivals, venues, distributors and funding bodies weren’t pretty. Certain dismal patterns recurred (and resonated): Boards who don’t engage with or even understand their organization’s artistic mission and are insensitive to the diverse neighborhood in which their organization’s venue is located; incompetent founders and/or presidents who create only obstacles, never solutions; unduly empowered, Trumpian bean counters who chip away at the taste and experiences that make organizations’ cultural offerings special; expensive PR teams that don’t bring to the table a bare-minimum familiarity with the rich subcultural art form they’re half-heartedly peddling as “product”; nonprofit arts organizations for whom art now ranks as a distant-second goal behind profit.”

To me, Hunter S. Thompson was a hero. His early books were great, but in many ways, his life and career post–Fear and Loathing on the Campaign Trail is a cautionary tale for authors. People expected him to be high and drunk all the time and play that persona, and he stuck with that to the end, and I don’t think it was good for him. I always sort of feel mixed emotions when I hear that people went and hung out with Hunter and how great it was to get high with Hunter. The fact is the guy was having difficulty doing any sustained writing at all for years probably because so many quote, unquote, “friends” wanted to get high with him … There was a badly disappointed romantic there. I mean, that great line, “This is where the wave broke, the tide rolled back … ” This was a guy that was hurt and disappointed and very bitter about things, and it made his writing beautiful, and also with that came a lot of pain.
