Funniest/Most Insightful Comments Of The Week At Techdirt (techdirt)

This week, our first place winner on the insightful side is That One Guy with a response to Josh Hawley's politically-motivated call to break up companies: 'Only companies I agree with deserve rights!' I am shocked that insurrectionist Hawley is an enemy of the first amendment as well, why it's getting to the point that I'm starting to suspect that he thinks the law's entire purpose is to serve him rather than the public in general, much like his Dear Leader did and does. Much like the ML...

Morrissey Slams ‘The Simpsons’ for ‘Harshly Hateful’ Parody

While “The Simpsons”’ parody of a “depressed British singer from the 1980s” — clearly styled at least partially on erstwhile Smiths frontman Morrissey — has gotten rave reviews in many quarters, the man himself is apparently less than thrilled. The singer was satirized as an imaginary friend of Lisa Simpson’s named Quilloughby, from a fictional […]

Why are male politicians in love with topless vaccine selfies? | Priya Elan

Essential to the vaxxie checklist are an off-the-shoulder shirt, Viking-level chest hair and a twinkle in the eyeAre you man enough for a vaxxie (that’s a vaccination selfie to you and me)? That’s the question some of us are asking after having seen a host of politicians pose shirtless while getting their Covid-19 jabs. Not since Vladimir Putin shared those topless holiday pics, perfecting the butterfly stroke and breaking actual twigs with the simple power of his legs, have there been such stra...

Please please please let me get what I want from this Smiths-themed Indian restaurant

Last year — shortly before the pandemic began in earnest — a new vegan-friendly Indian restaurant opened in Manchester, England. That's not particularly remarkable (although I suppose it is remarkable that they've managed to survive for a year). No, what's remarkable about This Charming Naan is the fact that its menu is comprised almost entirely of puns about the band The Smiths (with a little Joy Division added in for good measure). — Read the rest

New York Dolls co-founder Sylvain Sylvain dies at 69

Sylvain Sylvain, co-founder and rhythm guitarist of legendary early 1970s proto-punk quintet the New York Dolls, died Wednesday after a battle with cancer, according to a social media post by his wife and multiple media reports. He was 69. While often lambasted in their era — either as Rolling Stones knock-offs or for their shocking-at-the-time androgynous look — the Dolls were one of the single greatest influences on punk rock, on both sides of the Atlantic. Their vast influence can be heard in...
