The opportunity arose by chance, when my father was visiting McCain’s office and was greeted by an aide to the senator, a lovely woman by the name of Patricia. My father – a native Arizonan – asked if I could do some volunteer work in the office, and the aide agreed.



Ah of course, when you just happen to be in attendance for your father's private audience with a United States Senator and Dad just happens to ask, completely unrelated to the quid pro quo being discussed, if they need an intern for the summer,

watching breaking bad again. in addition to being racist against hispanics and valorizing cops, the show protrays a 3 person family with a pretty big house and two cars as having a bad go at things. i cant tell if that speaks to the precariousness of the american middle class or if its just an out-of-touch view of what poverty is

maybe its meant to indicate how us medical bills are so extortionate they will utterly fuck even a better-off family

well the show starts out with him not even knowing he has cancer, but still having to work two crappy jobs while his wife tries to sell stuff on etsy or wherever to help them stay afloat. not sure if it implied that they pay heavily for their son's disability

the drug dealer he strangles to death in breaking bad has a business owner dad and an masters in business, so apparently it's hispanic proclivities that lead him to deal meth and gangbang or something.

the amount of booj dealers is staggering, the guy who supplied most of my college was a conspiracy theory trot who would forward me WSWS and Stormfront stories unprompted, and his dad was a state-level legislator and a big landowner in the area

breaking bad is pretty tame by now. you should watch 'sicario 2: even sicarier' if you want to dive face first into the fox news multiverse.
#1575
dint say your a fan of the fox news mutliverse until youve watched an action film starring gerald butler

Breaking Bad is my favorite show about male fragility so far
#1577
the first season of True Detective was a great show about male fragility, unfortunately what i saw of the second season pissed and shat all over that impression
#1578
I like how they have a throwaway line about Saul being Irish to make his character seem less anti-semitic
#1579
I am watching the best piece of tv ever made.

ive been watching youtubes of people run RATs on 'tech support' scammers for maybe 3 hours because im braindead and theyre hilarious

i watch youtube for a couple of hours most days in the kitchen while i wash dishes and cook stuff. my favourite thing lately is the japanese guy who makes functional kitchen knives out of weird stuff like jello or underwear. very creative with the occasional absurd flourish. https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLIoouZjvzMWlmd4aap97yCLJQdAMWZC02
#1582
oh yeah that knife channel is cool. another great channel is the one with the guy in queensland that has a plot of land where he just shows up in his shorts and builds some amazing shit like a mud hut: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCAL3JXZSzSm8AlZyD3nQdBA
very therapeutic

Challenging yourself in nature and sharing the things you learn with the internet is cool. Not every time a white guy walks outside without sunscreen is imperialist, imo

That's fine, but this particular guy is buying stolen land on which to practice his stolen techniques and doesn't even bother with the simple act of acknowledging the traditional owners of either. so it's a hard pass from me.

#1589
yeah i got hooked on it before i knew he owned the land, and kinda was turned off for a while until i decided that if i had enough money and skill i would probably do whaat he does

I watched this mainly because Crispin Glover put on a nice 3 piece to be on the radio and so I knew he respected my valuable time. Presentation matters kids.

me: Crispin Glover... is Danny Glover's son.
my girlfriend, weeping quietly: This is my dad's funeral. My father is dead
me: And Donald Glover is, in turn, the proud issue of Crispin.
