To all you peeps out there that don’t think Mclennon switched, may I present to you, johnnyboi himself’s kinky Paris fanfic,


‘Neither of them held each other down; in fact, they took it in turns. ‘One good turn deserves an encore’ pretty well summed up their relations.’


Chance is already retired.
I wished to assume that
she protested the continued
definition in my mind.
I had celebrated my prison.

I must go.

You then have the present
that is expressed:
I am alone.

Here is a finish
that lacks interpretation:

I am
as are them.

I shall not hesitate.
Be perfect.
I devoted myself
to read all coincidence.

When I conjure up
definite meaning,
I decide my mind.

The follow up:

One divided by one
equals numb.

Told you so.

Science shows school should start much later

Speaking at the British Science Festival in Bradford, England, in 2015, neuroscientist and sleep advocate Paul Kelley argued schoolchildren and their adult counterparts should should have much later starts. Such a change could lead to marked improvement in test scores. He suggested a specific, much later start time.

May 12, 1969. When he heard Led Zeppelin play for the first time in California, photographer Robert Knight was blown away and quickly helped them secure a gig in Hawaii. When the band got off the plane in Honolulu, Knight took pictures of them clutching reel-to-reel boxes that no doubt contained the works-in-progress that would become Led Zeppelin II. Knight recalled, “I met the band at the airport, with a VW and camera bag. I got some terrific shots of them at the house they rented at Diamond Head – learning to surf, strolling the beach, and other very mad behavior.

She was even more naked
between her legs,
because after all,
it was dubious times;
it was war,
each one biting wide.

Open love- 
such a lie!
Oh, engulf me here
asleep in the wrecked
phosphorescent bones of logic.

Old he was in trusting anguish.
He was in legs and arms a mile long.

She passes away.
He never went off.
Go in the void of her.
That I did.

There was first of all the puzzles.

Died somehow I had…
always with breath.
I found that obsession
is a machine on long
after the drive in me.
I would rot out with it of course.

the last of the line,
never once mated.

So am I nothing?

To Death:
Shape a man on stilts,
age 29.

School Memories: The Loss in Danwon High by Argus Paul Estabrook

To talk about the loss of a loved one is never easy and even more so, to allow a complete stranger to photograph the grief and pain that come with it. Bound by mutual trust and respect, South Korea-based photographer Argus Paul Estabrook and the subjects of his poignantly beautiful series School Memories: The Loss in Danwon High found a common ground: to preserve a memory.

Read our interview with Argus Paul Estabrook.
New city ordinance forces family to destroy their vegetable garden
There’s a new ordinance in Sugar Creek, Missouri, that restricts the use of agriculture on properties in the city. Nathan Athans believes it’s a witch hunt against him.
By Shannon Halligan

Athans grows several different types of vegetables on his lawn and loves tending to his garden.

“I’d probably say about 300 hours [so far this year], I spend all my free time out here,” Athans said.

He believes it’s important for his family. “I want my family to know where their food is coming from, I don’t want to have to go to the grocery store and worry about what was done to that food.”

However, neighbors and city officials don’t see the garden the same way. Last summer the city cited Athans for weeds in his garden but he said he complied.

“We did it, completely weed-free, we paid our citation,” he said.

The city’s building official, Paul Loving, argued otherwise. “I don’t know that there would have been a problem with them had the gardens been well kept, they weren’t.”

The new ordinance specifies that vegetation must be 30 feet from the street.

Athans said he can’t grow the garden in his backyard because it only gets about two hours of sunshine and only in certain areas.

Loving said the city received many complaints and the ordinance is the resolution. “Because I want my yard a certain way doesn’t mean the neighborhood has to keep his yard the same way, but I do have an expectation that we’ll all be reasonable in what we put in our front yards.”

The family has been given four days to get rid of their front yard garden or face a fine.
Paul Krugman: GOP debate proves candidates are liars living in “world of fantasy and fiction”
By Scott Eric Kaufman

New York Times columnist Paul Krugman argued Friday that all the GOP debate on Wednesday proved is that the current field of Republican candidates is dangerously out of touch with reality, and is more than willing to lie about it in order to win an election.

By way of proof, he noted that the only candidate who didn’t spout “economic fantasies” was Donald Trump, and the only one seemed “remotely sensible” on foreign policy was Rand Paul — both of whom aren’t electable for a host of other reasons. Indeed, he said, the entire field should be “scary” not just to Democrats, but to moderate Republicans, because it’s impossible to tell what they actually believe.

The “candidates went beyond expounding bad analysis and peddling bad history to making outright false assertions”

You can say his name, I’m not gonna collapse into a blubbering mess […] Brendan was a lot of things but I’m telling you right now, life with him was never dull. I know that me and Brendan, we used to argue all the time, but he would always make it up to me with a night of… Well, you know. And if I argue with John Paul he makes it up to me with a cup of tea or summat.

She stood as someone from the dark.
Catch is passing on backward.
Move me, she said,
Am I beautiful?
It’s not how I feel.

Will everyone fight and leave
so when it’s all over
we can touch gently?

I said,
Own the path out of sight of the widows.

Come to build love long-
but wait,
the beginning was new
and nothing would ever grow old
like quick hearts rushing

In “How Children Succeed,” Paul Tough argues for a very different understanding of what makes a successful child. Drawing on groundbreaking research in neuroscience, economics, and psychology, Tough shows that the qualities that matter most have less to do with IQ and more to do with character: skills like grit, curiosity, conscientiousness, and optimism.
Paul Krugman: Children are dying in Flint because “small-government extremists” don’t want to give money to “Those People”
By Scott Eric Kaufman

In his column Monday, the New York Times’ Paul Krugman argued that the burgeoning humanitarian crisis in Flint, Michigan isn’t the result of a single failed policy in a single American city, but the toxic combination of conservative ideology and race, “in which small-government extremists are empowered by the sense of too many voters that good government is simply a giveaway to Those People.”

It’s “typical of the (literally) poisonous interaction between ideology and race”
