What’s that? They “edited out” the white guys from the catcalling video because somehow mysteriously every example of a white guy had bad audio or some other technical flaw? Yeah right.

Which doesn’t diminish the fact that it’s a real problem, but does diminish the effectiveness & trustworthiness of that video. Sigh.

I forgot to mention in yesterday’s update that I voted yesterday. Apparently every judge in the state of North Carolina was up for reelection at the same time. I know a lot of lawyers (there was a period in the 90s when law school was what library school was a little later on) but beyond that circle, I can’t imagine many other people being able to successfully navigate that list of 25-30 different names.

I took a list supplied by a friend of mine, compiled via input from a couple of her trustworthy friends who work in & around the judicial system. Even so, I don’t know that our signal is going to be distinguishable from the noise.

In other news, fuckin Wayne Coyne is going to come to the Carolina Theatre in December to personally introduce a screening of The Night Porter.

Which has been on my list of things to get around to watching one day, although now that that jackass is coming to introduce it, I don’t know that I’m even mildly interested anymore.
