the news is worth watching


News Every (3.4.2013) is translated!  This is worth watching again if you have already seen it, and it’s definitely worth your time if you haven’t.

This was actually translated a while ago, but it was not the full video + the quality was very bad.  Here is the HD full version! (Download links are in the description)

Remember this video asking kids how they felt about same-sex marriage? The creators are back, interviewing the same kids two years later about the SCOTUS ruling legalizing marriage equality. These kids have been paying attention over the last two years, and not only are they adorable and empathetic to the cause, but they’re really insightful. Worth watching the whole thing. 

The corner café congregation
reads forecasts like coordinates
but prays for rain
with leathered hands and wasted vowels
seeking god in almanacs
and solace in purchased premiums

I find the only person in the room
with shoulders heavier than sighs
to ask if eternity is a destination

One after another, they will fall
seamless into the arrhythmia of a city
that skipped to the end but quotes from the middle
watches the evening news
for a day’s worth of ways to begin conversations
with nameless faces
yawns its dry-mouthed I love you’s
to the hollow click of a bedside lamp

Finis coronat opus

Unnoticed, the sparrows fall silent
and I know the clouds will gather soon


Charlie Brooker on how not to report spree killings. Very disturbing, but well worth a watch.
