    I think I dont like Andrew Lloyd Webber

    Hot take obvs but I feel like when people say condescending or snarky things about theater kids, it’s the theater kids who like Webber that are to blame

    It’s so consistently cheesy and maximal and unsubtle

    Shit on the webber all you want, but I’m pretty sure even the so-called theatre kids thought the Broadway Spider-Man production was a disaster.

    The cherry on top was this being a conversation with my dad involved as well, and both he and my uncle are highly dependent on government subsidies for their livelihoods. 🙄

    This mindset is both weird and very common. I once had a conversation with a cop where he whined about "The Man".

    That’s scary, because it probably meant like he felt like he was being held back from doing something he thought cops should be allowed to do. 😕


    My dad at this point probably pockets $120k a year in payments from the government and gets another $20k in tax subsidies, and does about five days of work a month.

    This sounds like the socialist utopia I've been looking for, how do I get on this?

    My dad has understood for a long time a way to become wealthy and have the time to actually spend it is to have other people make it for you and to minimize your tax obligations. Under his ethos, doctors and scientists and academics are the real chumps because they worked so hard for their positions and spend all week at work instead of at the country club watching Fox News in the lounge before their daily eighteen.

    So I'm guessing he exploits immigrant labor as a general contractor with a solid long term government contract?

    Even better: government housing and farming exemptions

    Ah the truly old fashioned way, owning a bunch of land?

    (I assume gov housing means he owns a bunch of section 8 designated apartment's?)

    Which at this point you might as well say he's rich because he's rich, no one around here could easily create that kind of setup for themselves.

    Yup.

    And inherited those.

    OH MY GOD

    I bet he constantly talks about how hard he worked, and he did it ALLLLLLLLL by himself and

    It’s a bit telling actually, he never really talks about himself being great or better than anyone else, but he loathes just about anyone who isn’t a cishet white middle class southerner and has gone his whole life seething about unseen slights and advantages taken by outgroups, usually black people or Jewish folks, each comical in its own way: his clientele is about 90% black, and I can probably count the number of Jews he’s been in the presence of on one hand. It’s funny because he’s also a preening snob and looks down on the poor, uneducated, or ultra-Christian as having a failure of intellect.


    I think above all, my dad prides himself as being a very clever man, and in one of our last conversations, he told me he was so often cruel and harsh with me because he felt I was more clever than he, and he saw this as a threat and challenge.

    This was not an apology.

    In other, nonrelated but weird news:

    The Dutch cabinet is about to fall. On immigration issues.
    Now this is Bad News in general because it means that it will fuel a new election cycle of what the Acceptable Level of Racism is, and the results will be depressing.

    But the immediate result is so weird:
    The Dutch TV has set up a lifestream of the door leading to the Prime Ministers office, knowing that when someone steps through it, it probably means the end of the government. This has been going on for several hours now. You can check it here: https://nos.nl/livestream/2481792-kijk-hier-live-naar-de-gebeurtenissen-in-den-haag

    In this case everyone will ignore the rot of the lettuce I'm afraid. And blame the other vegetables.
    Mark Rutte is in a reasonable position to 'win' the next election, and somehow all his governments faults will rain down on his coalition partners. It's an infuriating quality of his, going on for a decade now.
    Only, if the Polls are anywhere near true, I don't see any government that is remotely stable in the future.

    It's a huge gamble, and he is taking that gamble.

    It’s extremely fascinating how little of the traditions and values and orthodoxy in any church come from the Bible, equally fascinating is how they cherry-pick which ones to ignore or alter; it often just ends up looking like it was written by Florida Man.

    Bible scholar: “In terms of divine mandate, here’s what we got in the text—keep Saturdays holy and restful, don’t eat shelfish, use clean animals for your sacrifices, cast out child abusers, keep your body pure, don’t mix meat and dairy, care for the marginalized, love your neighbor, public testimony is prideful—”
