- "Fuckery" I have a lot of problems with Whole Foods. Mostly financial, but some philosophical as well. They've done a great job convincing people that, despite being a huge corporation, they aren't really a huge corporation. Organic food and artisan breads are nice and all, but when you upcharge people for the same quality stuff they can get in the organic sections at their normally priced supermarket then I can't support you. But I digress. Whole Foods was actually doing something I didn't know about, and that I wholeheartedly supported: they had Ramadan promotions on their blog, recipes and giveaways and all types of goodies. Overpriced diversity is still diversity. Then people got wind of all this Islam pandering going on, though. Those reverse racist, Arab-loving green freaks. How dare you, Whole Foods. How dare you act like followers of Islam eat organic too. You were giving terrorists 40% off hummus! Rat bastards. Whole Foods, in the face of such peer pressure from White America, did what every corporation would do such a situation. They said screw Islam, let's get paid. HuffPost.
- "Failure" Jereme Richmond is a very good basketball player. He could've been great at Illinois and probably a pro, but
he's an idiothas idiot tendencies. He declared for the draft when I'm almost certain nobody but his parents told him he'd be a first-round pick (he went undrafted). Now he's being held on $100k bond after being charged with aggravated unlawful use of a weapon, battery, disorderly conduct, possession of a firearm and assault. There goes that career.

On a brighter note, here's a new track from Kids These Days. "Clear Eyes" produced by Blended Babies. Real talented group, but you already knew that. Anybody catch their set at Lollapalooza over the weekend? Via Andrew.
- "Insanity" Everybody probably heard about the American Gangster reenactment that happened on the State St. Bridge yesterday afternoon. Crazy, crazy shit. Put a bullet in somebody's head in broad daylight. I don't know what the victim did to warrant that, but I hope he makes a full recovery. He's very fortunate, and that was the understatement of the summer. Hope the shooter's own momma snitches on him.
