Some of these don’t even have non-White people in the background. That’s the reason I stopped watching “Friends”.
Like damn.. I [sorta] understand white people only hang out with each other cause our society is segregated. Okay… but DAMN, can we at least be in the background?? You’re in NEW YORK CITY… you’re walking down a sidewalk.. and NO ONE is non-white? Really?

"Prof Jeremy Pearson, British Heart Foundation: "Our advice at the moment wouldn’t change from what it was yesterday""

And that’s why we’re all still fat and dying :/

Seriously, how much longer can the status quo be held up? That the reason burgers, pizza, and tacos make us fat is because of the meat and cheese on them?

How much longer can we shame people, telling them that it’s their own fault that they’re overweight and sick?

It’s not your fault that no amount of running and eating salads has helped with your waistline! You were just given bad information about how our bodies work!

Don’t throw money away, going to the gym, buying powders, signing up for Multi Level Marketing “coaching” gimmicks, or buying DVDs!

Eating animals got us out of the trees and into space shuttles! Fat is brain food. It’s a more efficient way to get energy. Do you wanna chew leaves for 8 hours a day, like a gorilla, in order to enjoy just a sedentary lifestyle? Or do you wanna get out there and build a house, ride a bike, or design and fly a rocket??

Thanks to everyone who came out to Wits last night! We had an amazing time stepping into and out of our element. You were incredible!!!
It was also really great getting to meet and perform with Steven Yeun! Look out for our forthcoming split 7” this fall with the songs “Glenn” and “Shovel Love” on it.
If you missed the show, do not fret. Once it is mixed and mastered, it will be aired on the radio and on the internet to be enjoyed by everyone.
Now we must get back to writing album #6.
Much love.
-Justin.

Yeahhhh!

"Yep, that’s right. The butter and whole-milk eaters did better at keeping the pounds off. "I would say it’s counter-intuitive," says Greg Miller, executive vice president of the National Dairy Council."

Sure, counter-intuitive for those that subscribe to old dietary dogma.

"It’s not clear what might explain this phenomenon. Lots of folks point to the satiety factor. The higher levels of fat in whole milk products may make us feel fuller, faster. And as a result, the thinking goes, we may end up eating less."

Yeah, that’s the ticket! It’s all about calories! ಠ_ಠ

"Or the explanation could be more complex. "There may be bio-active substances in the milk fat that may be altering our metabolism in a way that helps us utilize the fat and burn it for energy, rather than storing it in our bodies," Miller says."

Oh yeah, milk has some magical voodoo that we can’t explain!

"Whole-milk dairy products are relatively high in saturated fat. And eating too much saturated fat can increase the risk of heart disease. So many experts would agree that adults with high cholesterol should continue to limit dairy fat."

Hey, I know we just told you that we were wrong about high fat dairy, but please continue to trust us on saturated fat and cholesterol. ಠ_ಠ

Ugh, this article. Haha.

To be clear: I’m not advocating that we steer clear of full-fat dairy. I’m saying that, while nutritionists are scratching their heads about this, many of us know that losing weight (rather, undoing weight gain) has nothing to do with eating less and exercising more and has everything to do with insulin and other hormones.

Simply put, fat doesn’t make you fat. Carbs do. And experts are very slowly coming around to that. In this transition period, there will be many articles like this. Sure, they’re helpful, but often, they leave out the key to it all, and so don’t really help. Sigh.

"The blackness he woke to on those nights was sightless and impenetrable. A blackness to hurt your ears with listening. Often he had to get up. No sound but the wind in the bare and blackened trees. He rose and stood tottering in that cold autistic dark with his arms out held for balance while the vestibular calculations in his skull cranked out their reckonings. An old chronicle. To seek out the upright. No fall but preceded by a declination. He took great marching steps into the nothingness, counting them against his return. Eyes closed, arms oaring. Upright to what? Something nameless in the night, lode or matrix. To which he and the stars were common satellite. Like the great pendulum in its rotunda scribing through the long day movements of the universe of which you may say it knows nothing and yet know it must."

Cormac McCarthy (“The Road”, page 15)

Ummm. “The vestibular calculations in his skull cranked out their reckonings”? “Something nameless in the night, lode or matrix”? What the fuck?

Will I be able to enjoy this book, if that was only on page 15 and there’s 287 in this book? Ugh.

Like, am I crazy, or did that passage basically just say “it was dark and silent and he noticed that it was dark and silent and so he walked towards the dark and silence towards something that was dark and silent”? Am I too stupid for this book?? Is it intellectual masturbation??

Sigh. Gonna keep on trudging along, like a fucking dummy.
