Wiggle, wiggle, wiggle like a rolling hoop
Wiggle, wiggle, wiggle like a ton of lead
Wiggle - you can raise the dead

Look, you have to establish context for these things. And I maintain that unless you appreciate the Fall of Constantinople, the Great Fire of London, and Mickey Mantle's fatalist alcoholism, live Freddy makes no sense. If you want to half-ass it, fine, go call Simon Schama to do the appendix.

I know it's all getting a bit gloomy, doomy even, what with wars and Trump and loads of other bad stuff going down, but don't get too despondent, the far right just may just be at hand to save us all, hallelujah.

Not sure where to put this—do we have a labour/work thread?—so this will do. I wonder how many chefs feel obliged to act like assholes just like the celebrities on television. Or do those assholes just give other chefs license to be shitheads?

I recently listened to Maureen Ryan's Burn It Down, about the normalization of dehumanizing treatment of people in Hollywood. It was depressing and infuriating all at the same time. The rationales offered—it's part of my process; it's all worth it when you consider the final results—are so threadbare. Your fucking art isn't worth routinely humiliating people, regardless of the accolades or profits. One of the anecdotes related was of producers, when hiring assistants, have them watch the movie Swimming With Sharks as a legit training video.

Unfortunately the real answer is lame: it's counterfeit money.

I wonder if it's like how assholes become cops. It is just one of those professions that attract assholes.
