THE AWL: Know Your Internet History! Pt. 4

Check out part four of my “Know Your Internet History” series at The Awl: an interview with ground breaking “Net Art” provocateurs Jodi.org. They would only speak to me in scrambled HTML/ASCII code and links (really), and they nearly destroyed my computer. Hit the back button!

I say cover ALL saturated-fat/corn-syrup/carb-heavy processed foods in Pride rainbows so unhinged, angry (and generally overweight) GOP’ers will have no choice but to boycott them all. Let’s save some lives people! #oreo #cookie #socialism

Jimmy LaSalvia of GOProud called Michael Musto a “muppet?” Comparing gays to puppets you stick your hand inside the back of is homophobic. Use “marionette” or “chia pet” instead.

Clifton Lively

I was shocked and saddened to learn that Clifton Lively passed away unexpectedly last week. I have nothing but colorful, crazy memories of Clifton from when I knew him in NYC in the 90’s. He was a true individual — a proud New Orleanian living amongst kooky New Yorkers. He had a vivid knowledge of New Orleans history, and food (he was an avid and skilled cook), and was laugh-out-loud hilarious. He had a killer smile, and great style (he was one of the first people I knew to wear snakeskin cowboy boots, giant belt buckles and gimmie caps in East Village clubs and call it cool). He spent the last decade working at St. Mary’s Parrish in North Carolina, organizing events and chaperoning missionary trips (he apparently was even able to infuse a New Orleans flavor to that place). He was one of the most unabashedly smiley-est, genuine people I can remember. He enthusiastically opened my eyes to a lot of culture and ideas when I knew him (I remember one time him sitting me down in his apartment and forcing me to watch videos of every one of Tamara Dobson’s movies, long before anyone else I knew was into Blaxploitation films). He was always recommending authors and books. Thankfully through the internet we were able to reconnect a few times these last couple of years. Goodbye Clifton! I always thought very fondly of you, and feel honored to have known you. XOXO

Heyyy…in ROSEMARY’S BABY have you ever noticed that, according to Dr. Sapirstein, Rosemary’s devil baby is due June 28th… that’s the anniversary of the Stonewall Riots! And! Since the film is set in 1968 (in NYC) and a pregnancy takes nine months, we assume that’s June 28th, 1969. The ACTUAL DAY of the Stonewall Riots!!! OMG!!!

They should have Stonewall Riot Recreationists like they have Civil War Recreationists. They could do it in June.
