Um... No

Maine is an area with great diversity and has always had a reputation for its exceptional quality of life, strong work ethic, and rich industrial heritage. Maine's biggest city, Portland, carries on that tradition with a modern day flair. -- Maine Home Connection
The same website publishes this breakdown of the demographics of Maine:
The only way Maine has great diversity is if you're focused on different kinds of white people.

Or if you're a racist and you think it's great that 95% of the state is whities.

Song of the Day: "Step Up the Morphine"

Unless it's too late.

Guitarist Johnny Took from DMA'S wrote this about the video:
"Losing someone close to us is a very personal thing but something we all inevitably have to experience. This video is an honest collection of moments between a father and his two youngest daughters directed by his youngest son, for anybody who has lost someone."
And here we are.

Song of the Day: "Waste a Moment"

Oh, take the time to waste a momentOh, never ask to be forgiven
Is it a coincidence that today, the day of Clark's thing here, features a song of the day from Kings of Leon. I wrote this at the end of 2009:
Now that he's known about them [Kings of Leon] for like a year, you'd think Clark signed them 8 years ago or something. He LOVES them--he was indignant that they lost at the AMAs. I guess it's the right balance between a good sound, a talented band, and cute boys. For perspective: Clark has no idea who Langhorne Slim is.
Yes, it's just a coincidence. A happy one.

Song of the Day: "Freedun"

I should have put "Paper Planes" on my Clark Memorial Playlist. I guess I still can. It's a list of songs I associate with him for one reason or another. He was very excited to tell me about that song about a year after I posted it here. He was early on a lot of things (The Band Perry, that Creed song from a few Christmas mornings ago), just not M.I.A.

I heard that this will be her final album. Or "final" album.

Possibly that means M.I.A. and she's pulling a John Cougar or Cat Stevens on us.

Possibly that means everything.

I think the former. With the possibility that she comes out of retirement in 7 years as the next likely scenario.

Song: "Freedun"
Artist: M.I.A./Zayn

Happy Anniversary, Part 2

Today is also the __-year anniversary of the attack on the ________ in Benghazi which is in ______________ (a country).

Many Americans are furious about this event. You might be one of them. Are you...?
A) Disgusted at how _____________ (a person) went on Sunday morning "pundits, government officials, candidates and other people with nothing to do on a Sunday morning, and none of whom are under oath, all talking over each other" news show and lied about the events, ascribing motivations to some shitty movie on YouTube
B) Saddened by the knowledge that Hillary Clinton personally ordered NATO, the Super Friends and the Transformers all to stand down, saying "fuck them, this will never hurt my election chances, Jeb Bush won't stand a chance against me"
C) Angry that Barrack HUSSEIN Obama has never said the words _______ ________ in talking about all the terrorisms terrorizing the America
D) Just interested in accountability, possibly for the only time ever with respect to the government; hold someone responsible for the loss of ______ American lives
E) Hating anyone who insults this country by taking a knee during the ___________
F) All of the above
G) Some of the above (doesn't matter which)
H) None of the above
I) Something else
J) Reserve the right to decide at a later time because obviously Crooked Hillary did something wrong and even though millions have been spent on 7 Benghazi investigations by Congress showing no smoking gun, there's probably something somewhere, maybe in those deleted emails, she deleted those emails from her private server ergo she's a traitor, lock her up
