Ja: Lust for Youth, “By No Means” - “By No Means” is the last song on the forthcoming, self-titled LP from Euro-pop goths Lust for Youth, and by far the best. It’s addictive, and I can’t stop quoting the Copenhagen duo’s deliciously hate-filled lyrics: “You’re painfully in competent/Your self-pity is appalling/I see you’re always happy to talk about your misery/Your sentiments are tainted/A compliment from you would insult me.” Send it to the last idiot who wronged you, or keep it to yourself. —MS … [Read more...] about Lizzo Makes a Good Song Even Better, BTS Are in Love, and J.

Around the world, thousands of young climate activists are asking similar questions of world leaders. On Black Friday, Tien and other Extinction Rebellion activists will join a climate strike in Washington, D.C. that’s one of more than 3,000 strikes planned around the world. Staging a strike on Black Friday, one of the biggest shopping days of the year, is intentional given the role consumerism plays in driving the climate crisis.

The fashion industry alone, for instance, produces 10% of global carbon emissions. … [Read more...] about Why This Climate Activist Is Fasting on Thanksgiving
But John Hancock is a big, old company, which also includes an investment arm and retirement plan services. And in 2004, it was bought by a Canadian insurance firm, Manulife Financial. There’s nothing in its statements or the law that prevents the company from sharing information with other companies under its umbrella, or with future companies that might become part of the network, said Lee Tien, a lawyer with the Electronic Frontier Foundation.

Outlander doesn’t force you to think about the logistics of time-travel too much, and that’s a good thing. But the time-travel element does raise certain questions about destiny.

Charlotte Brändström’s direction imbues the scene with a sense of doom, and we also flashback to the fortuneteller in Edinburgh who warned Claire that she would be devoured by Abandawe. And let’s not forget that Claire correctly intuited details … [Read more...] about After a middling start, “Uncharted” sets
