Not a direct article but loving the independent content on substack. Some really insightful journalists that lack the my team vs your team we can get served up in other places

It's a bad song.

I actually half liked her last album though, kind of going for a robot Enya thing.

Do I have to decide which one I hate more? I'm torn. Musk is a dumb redditor but Grimes went out with him. What do you think @David Kronenbourg ?
She gave out about getting electric shocks on stage in the Olympia, when it was caused be her own shitty pedals and cables.

Good article, so I went and looked up PJ Matthews bio:

"Associate Professor P.J. Mathews completed his doctoral research at Trinity College Dublin and joined the School in 2004. Prior to that he lectured at St Patrick's College, Dublin City University (2001-2004) and Trinity College Dublin (1999-2001). He was Director of the Parnell Summer School from 2002-05 and was appointed Naughton Fellow and Visiting Associate Professor of English at the University of Notre Dame for 2007-08. Dr Mathews is the founder and Director of academic podcasting of UCDscholarcast (www.ucd.ie/scholarcast), Associate Member of Prismes Irish Studies Strand, Université Sorbonne Nouvelle-Paris 3, and co-convenor of the Irish Studies Doctoral Research Network. He is currently a member of the Governing Board of RTÉ, Ireland's national broadcaster, and Academic Director of the Yeats Winter School, Sligo."

So in other words, UCD guy that is actually on the governing board of RTE gets a programme commissioned by RTE which features him as one of the major contributors.

Maybe it's more current affairs than miscellaneous. But I've met Russian speaking Ukrainians who are pro Ukraine. I've spoken to Russians in Russia who refuse to believe Ukrainian is even a language. This article just got me thinking about language and propaganda and just clarified a few things.
