"If the image of an upper-middle-class city attorney clad in a blazer and sipping wine while vandalizing an upscale grocery store with an anti-Trump message strikes you as perhaps the most bourgeois sight imaginable, that's because it is." Joe DeFelice, Chairman of the Philadelphia Republican Party
Obama’s administration can carry on with what is in reality a brutal right-wing agenda, but elect someone who wants to continue Obama’s work, and change his party affiliation, and you have the classic shiraz-graffiti combo that no fascist tide can break.
Life in Spain has been good to us. As you can see, it’s certainly not hard on the eyes! In this post we feature images from Haro, El Margen, and Logroño.
Few news headlines are as frustrating as the Orwellian refrain, “Protests turn violent.” Violence does not simply happen, as if it were some type of exotic inclement weather. A protest is not a vampire or a zombie; it does not “turn.”
"Only outside the EU would there be any chance of a UK that tried to promote a just and peaceful world."
In the wake of the recent UK “Brexit” referendum to leave the EU, many outlets are reporting the result as a right-wing success. However, the left case for Leave is strong and well-documented.
In the never-ending struggle between the merits of PC and console gaming, who wins? PC gaming has long held fast to its reputation for being more difficult and expensive, but does this assumption bear re-examining?
A recent Guardian article refers to the outcome, in which Hogan won $140M in damages against Gawker, as a “chilling taste of things to come.” Everybody and their brother has been talking about this icecream-like verdict, but isn’t it a little absurd to pretend that the media will be honest and forthright if left to their own devices?
Enter the chickpea–a food I’m slowly developing an obsession with. It’s super yummy, versatile, and has lots of protein in it. This delicious recipe contains chickpeas and chopped veggies with a mayo- and mustard-based sauce with lemon added.
"It looks like a Klingon Bird of Prey." Deputy Secretary of Defense Robert Work
The U.S. Navy has developed an unmanned, fully autonomous robotic ship, apparently with inspiration from the Klingons. It’s slated for active duty in 2018.
In this video I offer a brief introduction to MechWarrior Online and play a round of Assault on the Frozen City map with one of the most popular Inner Sphere light mechs, the Jenner JR7-F.
Over Ghost in the Shell: First Assault’s free weekend, I play a few rounds of Team Deathmatch. There are four maps in the video, which I think are PSS9, Urban City, Downtown Dejima, and Dubbing Site.
Finally, the moment that Fallout 4 modders and players have been waiting for: as promised, Bethesda has released the Creation Kit. But is the bethesda.net repository and console mod release the beginning of the end for free modding?
Socialists all over the world have looked fondly on the Bolivarian revolution in Venezuela for years, overlooking the state’s authoritarianism and capitalist cronyism often for the sake of toeing the party line. But at what point should chavemadurismo’s supporters take cues from leftist dissidents and abandon their support of the farcical state in Venezuela?
Someone has figured out how to do Savage Lands IRL, and they put it on YouTube. Savage Lands is a nordic-style survive ’em up available on Steam for 14.99€.
"I’m sick of all superheroes, along with their friends and foes, and I wish they were all dead and buried together in one mass grave." Eileen Jones
Eileen Jones of Jacobin writes, “I’m sick of all superheroes, along with their friends and foes, and I wish they were all dead and buried together in one mass grave. If I thought there could be an absolutely final sequel called Superhero Slaughterhouse: No One Is Spared, I’d be there opening day in the front row to see it.”
Fallout 3 still has the looks. While writing my thesis on Fallout 3, I installed 74 mods or so and went to town on screenshots. Honestly, I wasn’t putting them in there for the page count. These are a few of the more lively ones, most of which didn’t make the cut.
A gallery of natural views from La Rioja Alta. Hikes along the rivers Tirón and Ebro, the overlooks of Laguardia, and the odd plateau offer incredible views into one of the world’s most beautiful regions.
A heavily modded Skyrim gallery. I like to think of myself as the Annie Leibovitz of Bethesda games, minus all the pictures of bougie-ass douchebags, addplus trolls and dragons.
