Bands


https://www.theguardian.com/music/2021/mar/18/why-bands-are-disappearing-young-people-arent-excited-by-them?fbclid=IwAR3GzUXRh-SEaV2L5lOeLpPO7pHAZu8gsa7__jlQq71ehqU0-vcfj2j_fcA

This is very true of the young-uns I know. It sounds cliche but all they wanna do is dance. Could not care less about "bands".

Unless, of course, you're a young-un on the Steve Hoffman forums. Those kids are helplessly retro.

Yup. Different handle. Rarely post.

There’s a wealth of information there if you can navigate endless threads about the Monkees and the Beatles.

Captain Underpants

The book under scrutiny is 2010′s “The Adventures of Ook and Gluk” by Dav Pilkey, who has apologized, saying it “contains harmful racial stereotypes” and is “wrong and harmful to my Asian readers.”

WTF.

I'm seriously about as tired of libs as I am fucking' trumptards... Are you kidding me?

I've never read that specific one, but my one offspring finds their books hilarious (they kind of are).

I certainly agree (that Capt Underpants rocks )

but we do have to parse when the publisher/author decides VS the gov't or some twitter witch hunt decides


“Every child who has read this book has been conditioned to accept this racist imagery as ‘OK’ or even funny,” he wrote. “It is this type of passive racism that has contributed to the continued hate and prejudice experienced by Asian Americans on a daily basis.”

In his apology, Pilkey said he would donate the advance and all royalties from The Adventures of Ook and Gluk to various organisations dedicated to tackling racism against Asian people, and to promoting diversity in publishing.
