Trump Transition Team 7 Remix

Trump Transition Team 7 Remix (2016)

 

When I suggested a few weeks ago that Trump’s worldview resembled the narcissistic simulated universe of “The Matrix,” I had no idea how far the analogy would go. His election represents the moment when roughly half our voting population — slightly less than that, to be fair — spoke out clearly: Give us the blue pill! That’s the one where you wake up in your beds and believe whatever you want to believe, leaving reality behind. If onetime movie star Ronald Reagan was the first postmodern president (the word still meant something back then), Trump will be the first post-reality president.

Trump Transition Team 1 Remix (2016)

 

When a population becomes distracted by trivia, when cultural life is redefined as a perpetual round of entertainments, when serious public conversation becomes a form of baby-talk, when, in short, a people become an audience, and their public business a vaudeville act, then a nation finds itself at risk; culture-death is a clear possibility.
--Neil Postman, Amusing Ourselves to Death, 1985

Airbag Recall

Airbag Recall

Airbag Recall (2016)

 

The airbags in question have been blamed for 11 deaths and over 150 injuries, with additional cases under review. Ten of the deaths have occurred in Hondas, the automaker confirmed. The recall stems from the discovery that these airbags, when deployed in an accident, can explode with too much force and spray metal shrapnel at occupants.

It’s undeniable that there’s an arrested quality to the Tintin books, which [Benoit] Peeters accurately calls “resolutely asexual and antifamilial.”
