"It's totally not like 9/11 out" is actually the best thing we could possibly hear, like, ever.
If you had told me a year ago that I'd be marching down parade routes this summer with a bullhorn in my hand chanting, "Hey hey, ho ho, Vote for Bill de Blasio," I would have raised my brow and asked why I was in the city on a weekend in the summer. I really really really want a progressive mayor in this city. For years we've been trumped by DC, San Francisco (ew!), and lots of other towns while we've handed our leadership to 'city managers'. Anyway. I'm, like, volunteering and stuff. It's been fun!

I feel like a certain Mr. Amazon J. Kindle already figured out a solution to this problem. Next you're gonna tell me people haven't figured out how to read hardcore erotica on the subway without revealing their interest in fisting to their neighbors.
@oudemia I went for "Sheep Farming In The Falklands" in the Now She's Dead thread because Maggie makes a guest appearance with awesome lyrics like:
But the peasants are hungry Mags / "Let them eat shit"

@Jinxie Though I have to admit that I developed an odd sort of crush on Thewlis after seeing it.
