The Commonwealth Fund does a yearly survey of healthcare systems and I picked out all the ones where Canada performs at or below America’s levels. Look at how many there are! Our neoliberal politicians in Ontario and across the country have sold out our system for corporate tax breaks (36% to 12% in less than 20 years) and it’s fucking disgusting. As an adult in Ontario, I no longer have a government drug or dental plan and won’t until I’m 65. What the hell happened to universal care?
The Vaccines and Mumford & Sons wear dresses for one-off gig

A supergroup featuring Justin Young of The Vaccines and Winston Marshall of Mumford & Sons played six gigs in as many hours in Nashville on Saturday night (October 26)

The band called Salvador Dali Parton - also featured Jake Orrall of JEFF the Brotherhood, Mike Harris of Apache Relay and Gill Landry of Old Crow Medicine Show. The band existed for just one night, recording a live album for future release in the process. 

Rolling Stone describes the band’s songs as sounding, “like a sloppy, sludge-y early Black Sabbath ground down into Dadaist shambles.” One unnamed track is compared to Spinal Tap’s taking on Neil Young and Crazy Horse while the first ever Salvador Dali Parton gig reportedly ended with a “D.C.-style hardcore song that inspired a brief, 30 seconds of slam dancing from the crowd”.

Meanwhile, lyrics to one song in the band’s 20 minute long sets includes the lines, “I want to suck and fuck you black and blue."
