my boss is on vacation this week. i told my asst mgr i was planning on hiking in a nearby state park; he snuck me into the boss' office to find the bound volume containing boss' master's thesis on the four species of shrew native to this practically unique ecological area. the paper says boss spend nearly 5000 hours observing and humanely trapping & releasing endangered shrews for science

*extremely humourless voice* Capital — profit (profit of enterprise plus interest), land — ground-rent, labour — wages, this is the trinity formula which comprises all the secrets of the social production process. Furthermo *my glasses fall off*

i think the lady at my local slice place was flirting w/ me?? she remembered my normal order, my government name, when i pulled up she tapped the cashier who was working on the shoulder and was like, why don't you go on break? and an 80s love song came on the speaker and she was singing along real loud. bad timing on her part but in any case i do what i was born to do in situations like this, just smile and play along and resolve to not return for a month.

i moved from the land of light and culture to the pacific northwest. it turns out the plants here aren't constantly exuding rash inducing biotoxins. this is a game changer. might go outside, someday.

clicked one of those local broadsheet press articles about local food, 10 best sandwiches, and picked "the kryptonite" cuz it was closest. went in and ordered and the cashier grinned+shouted "one kryptonite!" and the whole staff was like "OHHHHHH!", and then rang she me up for 25 fuckin dollars. i didn't read the article i literally saw the location and that it had cheese on it and was like "yep, kryptonite". it's apparently called that cuz it's the sandwich that can kill superman, 4lbs and 3200 calories. every cured meat the shop's got, plus, mozz sticks, jalapeno poppers, onion rings, 2 avocados. staff was arguing about the logistics of temperature and fitting everything into their roaster oven. i find out later it was featured on one of those disgusting eating shows called Man Vs Food. if you haven't seen it a typical ep involves an obese man gargling grease in a restaurant kitchen and making sex noises. i ate 1/4 of it 6 hrs ago and still feel like dogshit. googled the sandwich later and the shop owner was like, i don't recommend this at all, just buy two sandwiches, or save your money, do not buy my kryptonite sandwich. hate to sound like one of those people who eats out a lot, i don't, i cook my own food, most of the time. now all of the time.

I recently got back from a couple days in Nashville for work. I don't know a ton about the city's history but it's striking how Brooklynified large swathes of the area have become. The same trendy coffee shops, yuppy cocktail bars, and the same startup "Creative class" hipsters I see when I visit NY, with those ugly glass modernist developments sprouting up right near low income housing projects. Again, I don't know a ton about the south so it's possible this is already largely running its course but in the coming years it seems to me that tons of these gentrifiers are gonna begin their exodus from coastal cities into southern metros and shit is going to get extremely bad for the working classes living there.

The punishment substitutes for activity. If you sit around feeling bad about yourself and what you're not doing, that's self crit. So by finding new and creative ways to humiliate them, you probably forced them to put off engaging the masses while they introspected. Obviously, praise is a more effective motivator, but you have to only give praise at the exact right moment. I propose that we use the voice recognition surveillance technology installed on every cell phone to listen for the phrase "Fuckin cops, man" from any DSA member. At that exact moment we have a radio DJ - or a radio DJ impersonator, if necessary - call them and give them free tickets to The National, Del the Funky Homosapien, Harvey Danger, or Patton Oswalt depending on their myers-briggs type, as a thank you from "the local workers". Get in touch with your contact at the NSA to download the app for this.

i live in chattanooga, tennessee, and i'm here to tell you that exactly what you've predicted has been happening and looks like it will continue happening for a long time. gentrification is a huge problem. black and working class neighborhoods are being gutted and condos are popping up everywhere. there are basically no jobs that aren't in tech, tourism, or service. especially service.

This is the age we live in. Every city on this continent is going to be like that, sooner than you'd think.

shits already real bad here, has been for a few minutes. given our median wage and average apartment costs, you basically got to have a two+ income living situation to afford a one bedroom apartment. and depending on who yr source is, metro gets 70-100 new residents per day, and we're (probably well) over 30k units short of necessary affordable housing for the present population, not that most newcomers generally require affordable housing. working folks are being pushed further and further afield; whole neighborhoods are being uprooted then supplanted via tear-down and construction of yuppie bullshit. the neighborhood i live in is gonna be toast real soon. the 2 bedroom sears-catalogue house next door got tore down and replaced with a three story mansion for example. im fixing to be moving further out later this year, looks like. landlord can't afford my rent due to effect of increases in appraised value of this property on his taxes

this city is honestly not recognizable from how it was 20 years ago. while this has been going on for some time, the flood in 2010 caused a major episode of gentrification: a significant amount of funding for disaster relief was redirected into planning for new downtown attractions, and flooded out residents were left unable to repair their homes and forced to relocate. predictably, the land they abandoned got snapped up for even more redevelopment. the liberal mayor who oversaw that deliberate debacle is now running for governor

yeah we've got the volkswagen plant and the amazon fulfillment center. the volkswagen plant isn't allowed to unionize and is apparently subject to like its own sovereignty in a way i thought only applied in fucking shadowrun. and you know what fulfillment centers are like

and i'm moving to nashville in november because the i got kicked out of DSA and the local pride committee after everybody sided with my abuser. time to start over fresh in a place with a scene that's maybe less of a cess pool

e: also amazon pretty much exclusively hires contractors and temps. but again y'all know the drill there
