QAnon as a collaborative, investigative alternate reality game

QAnon is like an alternate reality game (ARG), says ARG designer Adrian Hon. Charlie Warzel of The New York Times interviewed Hon about the parallels between a conspiracy theory and alternate reality games. Hon had a number of interesting insights about QAnon: "It’s a collaborative fiction built on wild speculation that hardens into reality." "Many people feel alienated and left behind by the world. There’s something about QAnon like ARGs that reward and involve people for being who they are. ...

Can you tell whether it's elevating and not racist to compare Black Lives Matter artists to cavemen?

I'm trying to read "New York’s Sidewalk Prophets Are Heirs of the Lascaux Cave Artisans/What street art adorning boarded-up storefronts tells us about our shared political realities and the ways our stories are connected. A critic’s tour deciphers the signs and symbols" in the New York Times.Maybe to answer my question you need to know more about the racial identification of the writer, whose name is Seph Rodney. I'm just going to give you a sample of the prose:What became apparent to me is that...

a piece of new york is gone: pete hamill, rest in peace

A piece of New York City died this week. Pete Hamill, a legendary New York journalist and possibly the last of a breed, died yesterday at age 85.  Obituaries describe him as a "tabloid poet" or "tabloid hero". If he hadn't existed, perhaps Raymond Chandler would have invented him.  It seems only fitting to let the Daily News tell his story.Legendary journalist and author Pete Hamill, a tabloid hero and teller of New York tales, dead at 85Pete Hamill, the Brooklyn-born bard of the five borou...

Is Kanye West colluding with the Trump campaign?

What is CNN saying:[T]here are a handful of Trump-orbiting GOP operatives pushing West's helter-skelter, supposedly independent campaign for president. According to CNN, one such operative with ties to the Trump campaign, Lane Ruhland, has filed paperwork to get West on the ballot in Wisconsin.... West cannot win the election. He's missed too many deadlines to get on the ballot in too many states. But he could be a spoiler for President Donald Trump's reelection by siphoning off key portions of ...

Island community uses quirky, oversized art to drive COVID awareness

"The eyeballs move!" -- Michelle Bates, co-creator of the van mask This is the week my daughter and I had expected to be vacationing on Vashon, a lovely island in the southern Puget Sound where a dear friend of mine resides. Our plans were, of course, thwarted by the pandemic. Now, my friend has been assuring me that nothing fun is happening there this summer, that everything is closed and that we won't be "missing anything." But then I saw a post on the VashonBePrepared Facebook page that trigg...

Qualified immunity makes a mockery of justice. Abolish it.

If a government agent clearly violates your constitutional rights, you ought to be able to sue the government agent. Unfortunately, the United States Supreme Court-invented doctrine of qualified immunity serves to shield government agents from being held personally liable. Section 1983 Civil Rights Act of 1871 explicitly states that government agents who subject Americans “to the deprivation of any rights, privileges, or immunities secured by the Constitution and laws, shall be liable to the par...

Wednesday round-up

The movement to impose term limits on Supreme Court justices gained a bit of traction this week with an endorsement from a prominent think tank with deep ties to the Democratic establishment.
