Lemme hit my swag

So, after a couple years of plaintive emails from revolving flacks at Goliath after I left LFP, I was like, "Sure, I work for MeFi Mag. Send me your stuff and we'll see about reviewing it." They've got a new mag, called Wallpaper which is about fine art poster work.

They sent me the first two issues, too late for the Sex issue, and they're about Tattoos and male nudes. And not some classy black and white Mapplethorpe male nudes — more like hung, flaccid dudes just, you know, hangin' out.

I'm thinking I might send them to The Whelk to review. He likes giant wang, right?

Zaheer Ali, in Are Poor White Kids Invisible?, talks about the pathologizing and marginalization effects of treating poverty as a proxy for race — "disadvantaged," etc.

As we all remember Dear Leader today, we should touch on some of his greatest hits:

Orchestrating mass dancing to LMFAO's Party Rock showed the great cultural currency of the DPRK.

And who can forget North Korea's dialectical sexuality?

But really, it was Kim Jong Il's Livejournal and IM logs that gave us the most personal portrait of the man.
