Now that the numbers are in on same-sex marriage, many Republicans are falling like dominos all over themselves to express their support for something that only a few months ago they steadfastly claimed to stand against. They’ll probably soon claim that this is how they felt all along, and they were simply too hamstrung by politics to be able to say what they really meant. Well, okay. In the spirit of openheartedness and what life is really all about, I’ll go so far as to say that the fear of others may mask some deep-seated desire to understand, and maybe even to love. Because really, what is there to be afraid of? Few people today don’t know—or have in their families—at least one loving couple who are raising children, same-sex or not. And it’s really just the loving part that matters. That same-sex marriage could go from its preliminary draft of “diagnosable” to the final edit of “so what?” must indicate some positive evolution on the part of the larger human consciousness. My wife, being a biology teacher, puts it even more succinctly: “Why are all these people so worried about who everybody else is sleeping with, anyway?” (Score two for Moms.)
So, a final draft: happy Mothers’ Day, moms. We are grateful to, and love, you all.
Drawn and Quarterly shared Adrian Tomine’s Workspace. The neatness and simplicity!
Took Sprout to Lawrence, KS to see Lindsey Stirling at the Granada. The show was amazing. Here she is doing a Michael Jackson medley of Beat It, Billie Jean, and Smooth Criminal. Good stuff!
She also did a cover of Journey’s Separate Ways and a medley of Legend of Zelda tracks.
Her opener was The Vibrant Sound. They were pretty spectacular also. Here they are doing a Marvin Gaye cover/sample.
I’m pretty obsessed with the current Harlem Shake meme. My favorite has to be this one out of Portland.
An oldie but a goodie, and one of the best to come out of SoundCloud in a while. Nicki Minaj slowed down sounds like a super effeminate Jay-Z. I listen to this more often than I should.
Slowment 4 Life is pretty stellar, too.

We once had things in common
Now the only thing we share is the refrigerator

But fly alone
