if you so happen to have difficulties for whatever reason going to a store, and you are forced to use amazon – that’s a travesty and it speaks to a lack of functional support for folks unable to get to necessities (or, frankly, creature comfort-type things like bookstores) that is equally fucked up. if you have to order food from amazon specifically in order to live (i’m not sure that this is a thing but i’m aware that “just go to the store” is maybe not as possible for some people as it is for, like, me, so i’m trying to cover that particular base), society has probably failed you pretty badly, and everyone hemming and hawing about how hard it is to not buy from amazon despite having the luxury and privilege of not ever having to shop from amazon once should probably spend a lot less energy worrying about the ethics of buying from amazon (there’s virtually no point since in all but the situation i’m describing in this post it’s horribly unethical and has been for over a decade, y’all) and spend a lot more energy trying to make sure that those in our communities who need our assistance get an adequate amount of it.
This article says that Jeff Bezos originally wanted to call Amazon ‘relentless.com’, which…yeah.
how on earth has it taken anyone this long to stop shopping through amazon? i rankle every time i have to log in to fund a kickstarter since i know bezos’ culture-crushing ponzi scheme gets to take a cut.
reuters’ jack shafer wrote a big hand-wringing piece about how much it hurts but it’s necessary to close his amazon account. go fuck yourself, jack shafer. he links to some lady who’s been boycotting amazon because of the hatchette issue but finds it “hard” because she buys so much shit from amazon. go fuck yourself, lady.
at this point there’s so much documentation about amazon’s horrible business practices from the bottom up - how they treat publishers, yes, but how they also treat the desperate people clamouring for jobs in their basically illegal warehouses as subhuman trash – that i literally refuse to explain any further. my last amazon purchase was in 2008. trust me, you can be alive without buying all of your shit on amazon. i know, it’s hard, because you’re an enormous baby and you forget what your feet are for after taking three steps. if by some chance you’re not that, though, you’re probably a grown human adult and you probably just have so far refused to recognize that amazon is an enormous, vampiric middleman, and so you actually have no excuse for buying shit from amazon for this long except for your own lack of willpower in any field except blindness to total garbage behaviour from a faceless internet conglomerate led by a nosferatu-looking on-record asshole. grow up and go to a fucking store and talk to a human being, you insufferable shithead. jesus christ.
(side note: buy your groceries in person. don’t get food shipped to you from amazon, you google glass-wearing motherfucker. if you live in canada and yet cannot somehow extract the internet from the grocery shopping experience, which if you need a refresher simply involves exchanging money for food that keeps you alive, there’s literally a smartphone app that tells you where you can buy groceries from unionized employees. oh, you don’t want to support local unionized private sector workers? i hope your next amazon food order – which, again, christ – includes a pile of literal shit. i hope you eat shit. you’re personally responsible for killing america.)
Casio DH-100 Midi Saxophone
this is bullshit. chris doesn’t even know the difference between a saxophone and a clarinet - he repeatedly insisted once that kenny g played the clarinet and that he was 100% sure it wasn’t a saxophone
in chris’s defense its hard to get a more clarinet lookin’ saxophone than kenny
the plot thickens
Kenny Knows Digital Horns
literally gasped at the full-circle reveal
finally and accurate headline!
this is infowars you fuckin’ jadrools. from this very article:
California’s increasingly strict and unconstitutional gun laws have also contributed to citizens being unable to arm and defend themselves. Residents must obtain a concealed weapon license to carry outside their home or business, and those are awarded by county sheriffs on a limited basis.
"duh doy duh infowars got it right" even in the subhead it says “makes case for pro-gun advocates” and if you don’t think the immediate access any horrific asshole with disgusting retrograde views that he wants to make clear through mass murder has to fucking firearms in plenty of states is part of the problem then, well, i guess i can see why you just big-upped alex jones’ dick supplement false flag warehouse solely based their ability to tell that a man who murdered multiple women because he believed all women deserved murder was bad.
a broken clock happened to get right that elliott rodgers was an entitled rich kid, so entitled that he felt he was entitled to other people’s lives for hideously shitty reasons. he was a pig and a monster. infowars deserves no accolades for figuring this out. they’re part of the problem, dudes.
EDIT: from may 15, here’s infowars lead dude alex jones literally getting in the face of a parent of a mass shooting victim (a victim who, coincidentally, was a woman, in case you are wondering how deeply jones really cares about the female victims of male mass shooters) and threatening to beat him up, because said parent took the public political stance that maybe it should be harder to get a gun so that ladies like his daughter did not get shot to death in movie theatres.
the gun thing in the subhead is not a coincidence. infowars are using a brutal set of murders and a distressing american tragedy to push a pro-gun agenda. alex jones is the fucking enemy. damn.
