New app aims to turn Trump Twitter tantrums into social justice fundraising

  • The next time Trump goes off on a Twitter rant, a new social justice fundraising app can let you put your money where his mouth is.
  • WeCanResist.It, launched this week, is “like America’s swear jar, but against toxic ideology,” says co-founder Allyson Kapin.
  • Rather than vainly wishing Trump would just delete his account, WeCanResist.It lets people take action by donating to non-profits that focus on racial, gender and environmental causes every time the president pops off on social media. Read more (5/26/17)

The cake looked like it was a love child of a red brick and mud. Needless to say, your first foray into birthday cake making has been a bust. At least you can cook a mean spaghetti and meatballs, if it really comes down to party food. Or tacos – but those are still to be judged.

The cake, though. Ugh, it’s taking all of your self-control not to smash your face in it and wallow in self-pity. He’s going to be home in a few minutes and you have nothing to show him for his birthday because you went in over your head. Damn it, you should have just reserved a table at your favorite restaurant like he told you and not try your hand at this surprise birthday dinner thing.

Watch Father John Misty's New Video With Macaulay Culkin as Kurt Cobain

Father John Misty’s “Total Entertainment Forever” video is a maniacal LSD adventure starring Macaulay Culkin as a Christ-like Kurt Cobain trapped inside a VR game played by George Washington.

The clip opens with America’s first president (played by “Spinning on Air” radio host David Garland) popping Viagra and strapping on a VR headset for his deranged pleasure. From a player menu, he selects “Kurt Cobain'ed” – rather than “Biblo Clinton” or “Juan Arbuckle” – and uses a massive, Nintendo-styled controller to navigate the eye-popping world of his creation.

First, the Nirvana frontman is tied to a pole and whipped by Ronald McDonald. Then, after selecting the “Cross-Bearing” option from the game menu, Washington is transported to an equally disturbing scene, where Cobain is crucified next to Jon Arbuckle from Garfield and a saxophone-playing Bill Clinton. (Father John Misty himself, Josh Tillman, appears as a McDonald cohort with hook hands, and a papier-mâché version of the burger joint’s mascot erupts from his stomach, Alien-style.)

The collective behind the wild video, Four Gods and a Baby, includes Culkin, Adam Green, Thomas Bayne and Toby Goodshank.

“Total Entertainment Forever” is the fourth single from Father John Misty’s recently released third LP, Pure Comedy, following the title track, “Two Wildly Different Perspectives” and “Ballad of the Dying Man.”

I know this image is supposed to be pro-Sanders for President, but hear me out: all these pop culture icons avoided leadership positions because they knew they could do more meaningful work outside the governing political system (and feared being corrupted by the power of politics).  Dumbledore turned down the Minister of Magic position on multiple occasions, Gandalf intentionally stayed away from government and resisted the power of the One Ring, and Obi-Wan was a member of the Jedi Knights- the politically neutral guardians of peace in the galaxy.

That is sort of how I feel about Bernie Sanders. Even if he doesn’t win the nomination, he isn’t going anywhere- and shouldn’t. His massive influence will live on.
