On the weather report, another record-breaking hurricane is chewing up the coast.

The Revolution of Everyday Life

I passed a guy the other day, maybe 16, 17 years old. And as he gota little ways down the street I heard him holler at the top of his lungs:“I hate my fucking life and everyone in it!” (I guess that included the defeated-looking woman I took to be his mom, who was walking 20feet behind him.)I felt sorry for this kid, and I hope he gets help. But I also found myself giving him a little private salute. At least he’s facing it. Bellowing his sad truth to the heavens must have felt like a bit of liberation.Who hasn’t felt a hint of that existential frustration? Maybe you even feel it now. Like: Really? This is the life I have settled for? Starbucks, Safeway, smokeshop, home. Bang, bang, bang, marching to the drumbeat of capitalism.In the car you catch the news that the UN has declared a “red-alert emergency” for humanity.

An Interview with Khaled Hourani: First Intifada Was an Artistic Project (by Lela Vujanić)

Khaled Hourani is a critical, peculiar institution.

A Powerful Moment for Palestinian Unity

Benjamin Netanyahu’s days as a free man are numbered.His opponents in the Knesset are conspiring to end his criminal 12-year premiership (the longest in Israel’s history) by forging an unlikely “change” coalition of small-party ultranationalists, centrists, some leftists and even Islamists.


Fuck You, Bezos!

Jeff’s no longer the richest person on Earth: he recently had to settle for a paltry second-place position behind French silver-spooner Bernard Arnault. Nonetheless, he’s living larger, and more obscenely, than ever.
