    • Ya… being a minority in Idaho is a near death sentence. But still, I refuse to leave. If people aren’t willing to stay and fight for what’s right, thins will never change. Labrador has a special place in hell waiting for him.

  1. Well…there was a lot of depressing things in here….but….

    Chocolate Remix is my new hero. If they don’t start playing her stuff in our lesbian clubs Imma have strong words with the DJs!

    It’s true though that so much reggaeton is super machista….it’s sometimes a feminism struggle for me when I like a song or it’s super danceable but at the same time machista

  2. I remember debating oil pipelines with some other guys years ago and whether trucks/trains or pipelines were better. I think this article vindicates my anti-pipeline stance, but I guess we can all acknowledge that not being dependent on fossil fuels would probably be best.

  3. we,in Europe, are eating little makrons to make our mood better today. I know it’s not perfect but better than Nazi Le Pen, especially at the anniversary of victory against fascism ;) at least some (political) reason to celebrate after several months!

    • Can those of us who are meant to be in Europe but aren’t cos brexit join in w this?

      Normally my pride is in my Irish roots but yesterday was really proud of the part of me that’s French.

      Side note for republicans (this country’s). My French descended grandma took her family to Paris to learn about socialism during silver jubilee (our family on either side don’t like monarchy & my mums side always do an alternate thing whenever the whole country’s meant to obsess over one wealthy family.

  4. I have a nice link that is not related to the world going to shit: a rescue dog trained to find lost cats!

    ‘On assignments, Molly is trained to pick up cats’ scents from their bedding. When she finds the missing cat, she lies down to signal success, so as not to scare them, but you can see her trembling with excitement.’
