4 Ways to Control Your Emotions in Tense Moments
Claudia Rankine ~ howmanyofme ~ non zero china ~ ventilator blues

covid-19 talk ~ metaphors ~ dust ~ Found Footage Festival ~ cleo monster ~ oyster flatulence
@parisreview “I’m saddened and angered equally by work made of contempt, hatred, misogyny, and too many adjectives.” —Grace Paley ~ @rolandsmartin JUST IN: @AndrewGillum announces he’s headed to rehab: “After conversation with my family and deep reflection, I have made the decision to seek help, guidance and enter a rehabilitation facility at this time. This has been a wake-up call for me. Since my race for governor 1/4 ~ @OverheardOnDuty Just a reminder that crime is illegal during a pandemic, just like normal. So if you could stop fucking around and act like decent members of society and work together, it would be great. I should not have to go out and settle a debate over a parking spot. ~ There was a moment. You were walking across a lawn, feeling down and out. When all seemed lost, you looked down and saw a dandylion. When you told this story in a video interview, a clock bell rang while you said this. This morning, I stepped onto my front porch. In the front yard, dandylions are popping up. ~ pandemic anagrams as med panic ~ @Mother_Faulkner Any helpful tips for helping my trans daughter change names? She’s showed a definite interest in picking a new name, but she doesn’t yet read, which poses a bit of a challenge ~ Seventeen years ago, Iraq teetered on the edge of regime change. It was obvious what was going to happen, at least at first. America was going to storm in, kill a bunch of people, and take over. ~ Son is amazed to find HUNDREDS of vintage toilet paper rolls from the 1980s stocked in his late father’s unit years after he died – and is now offering them up to people in need ~ @atrupar HANNITY, March 9: “This scaring the living hell out of people — I see it, again, as like, let’s bludgeon Trump with this new hoax.” HANNITY, March 18: “By the way, this program has always taken the coronavirus seriously. We’ve never called the virus a hoax.” ~ @chamblee54 just eat a reeses peanut butter cup, and cry like the ugly mammal you are, go on twitter to tell the people wassup, never ever ever let them drive your car ~ Baltimore Mayor Begs Residents To Stop Shooting Each Other So Hospital Beds Can Be Used For Coronavirus Patients There was a story in Rolling Stone years ago. John & Yoko sang “Imagine” for an audience that included Nelson Rockefeller, then the Governor of NY Mr Rockefeller was said to have a “what has God wrought” look on his face ~ 44:37 WHAT DO YOU SAY TO AMERICANS WHO ARE SCARED, THOUGH. NEARLY 200 DEAD, 14,000 WHO ARE SICK. MILLIONS, AS YOU WITNESSED, WHO ARE SCARED RIGHT NOW. WHAT DO YOU SAY TO AMERICANS WATCHING YOU RIGHT NOW WHO ARE SCARED? 44:49 >> I SAY YOU’RE A TERRIBLE REPORTER. THAT’S WHAT I SAY. I THINK THAT’S A VERY NASTY QUESTION AND I THINK IT IS A VERY BAD SIGNAL THAT YOU’RE PUTTING OUT TO THE AMERICAN PEOPLE. THE AMERICAN PEOPLE ARE LOOKING FOR ANSWERS AND THEY’RE LOOKING FOR HOPE. AND YOU’RE DOING SENSATIONALISM AND THE SAME WITH NBC AND COMCAST. I DON’T CALL IT COMCAST, I CALL IT CONCAST. LET ME SAY SOMETHING. THAT’S REALLY BAD REPORTING. AND YOU OUGHT TO GET BACK TO REPORTING INSTEAD OF SENSATIONALISM. LET’S SEE IF IT WORKS. IT MIGHT, AND IT MIGHT NOT. I HAPPEN TO FEEL GOOD ABOUT IT. BUT WHO KNOWS. I’VE BEEN RIGHT A LOT. LET’S SEE WHAT HAPPENS. ~ This Side of Paradise: A Letter from F. Scott Fitzgerald, Quarantined in the South of France by Nick Farriella NOTE: This is a work of parody and is not an actual letter written by Fitzgerald. ~ Making the situation all the more potentially explosive was the fact that many Iranians have a special antipathy for China, as it is one of the few powerful countries that has openly supported the Iranian regime. News of Chinese tourists heading into Iran, some of them potentially sick with a contagious disease, predictably inflamed public sentiment. On social media, especially Instagram, I saw videos of Chinese tourists being cursed and shouted at by Iranians and being told to return to China with “their virus.” ~ “give me a break I mean we don’t talk enough about a corporate welfare you know in this country we don’t talk about how we pay for cuts and subsidies to the wealthiest people the wealthiest countries companies in this country but yet when it comes to putting a down payment on Main Street folks want to raise that issue” ~ pictures today are from The Library of Congress. ~ selah
