@Mike Riggs@facebook How could a drone capture audio from the street? Using existing tech that's cheaply commercially available. There have been recovery meetings in public spaces, though I'm not sure of AA specifically. The opening examples were conjecture, not straw men. The abuses detailed in the second half of the piece are all pointed at specific, actual events that happened, which I linked inline.
Always happy to contribute to the Awl's continuing series on my attempts to be World's Worst Dad. See this earlier highlight: http://www.theawl.com/2013/09/social-media-addict-documents-breaking-his-own-child
I promise he was 100% fine. I wouldn't have shared it otherwise. :)
@testingwithfire YES LYNX!!!!
No folly of youth is more quixotic than the tendency toward prescriptive grammar.
Haha, this is how you horrible youngs ruined the word "blog" by using it to represent a blog post in addition to the blog itself. Joke's on you; We're destroying the planet in your lifetimes.
My biggest concerns:
* Amateurish placement of the touchscreen tablet thing
* The whole routine with the (what were those?) hankies/hobo-ropes should have been a cane or perhaps done with their untied bowties themselves, to stay on topic
* Why the Flashdance girl at the end?
That being said, I agree the song is growing on me. Feel like Jay's half-speed part should have just been at the end, making the downtempo parts a bookend to the central song, and continuing JT's tradition of great, off-kilter codas on his tracks.
I always get upset when there's no way to parody something.
